Randy hunkered down behind a bush, peeked around
the edge and there stood his brother, Earl, with his rifle pointed at
Mrs. Casey’s head. Randy’s heart pounded against his ribs so hard it
made his chest hurt. “No!” he screamed, as he sprang from his hiding
place and dived into his brother head first.
The weapon flew from Earl’s hands, crashed to the
ground and went off. Randy let out a cry as he crumbled to the ground.
Jennifer stood paralyzed in shock for a few seconds
before she realized what had happened. “Oh, my God,” she said, as she
raced to the boy’s side. “Hawkman, help,” she cried.
