Danny looked at the gun disinterestedly. He was nervous and apprehensive, but he kept tight control of his face. He could not show Tigo what he was feeling. Tigo was the enemy, and so he presented a mask to the enemy, cocking one eyebrow and saying, "I seen pieces before. There's nothing special about this one." "Except what we got to do with it," Tigo said. Tigo was studying him with large brown eyes. The eyes were moist-looking. He was not a bad-looking kid, Tigo, with thick black hair and maybe nose that was too long, but his mouth and chin were good. You could usually tell a cat by his mouth and his chin. Tigo would not turkey out of this particular rumble. Of that, Danny was sure. "Why don't we start?" Danny asked. He wet his lips and looked across at Tigo.

Mariely P (Oct 09 2020 12:52AM) : This is my favorite story . In that moment he lost his new friend and in that moment that friendship that had so much potential was ripped away from tigo more

Leaving him with hopefulness and the emptiness leading him to sob out what he just lost I think it’s a bitter sweet ending because he was building a small friendship thinking he couldn’t and when he did he lost it all at once . The ending leaves me with a deep yearn in the chest of how tigo felt , he lost him .
