  2. Friday Mini-Bullets

    Henry Abbott

    Henry Abbott

    You throw your fists in the air. You scream. You turn to the person you came with, and you give them a big, hard, two-handed double high-ten. You pump your fists back in the air. You scream the whole time. You point at the replay and laugh with joy ....

    Henry Abbott
