PROLOUGE Boom! I heard the gunshot go off only this time it was closer as if it were in our own living room. Boom Boom Sounded like them potato guns and 9’s lighting up the block again. Usually Willie and them be playing popping off like they were some real little gangstas in the alley behind the hole but this was way too damn close and it seemed way too real I begin to walk down the hallway. I tried to cut on the light but it was like the power was out or something. I quickly ran to the closet to get a flashlight and the quickest thing I could find was Moma’s silver steel bat she used to bust Big C ass upside the head with every now and then. I wasn’t gone let nobody mess with me. I heard the door slam earlier so I knew that meant Big C and Vanessa was at each other’s damn throats
