I glanced at Joey, his jaw was twitching and his nostrils flared. Then I looked back at the three boys, who were crossing the street.
“Great,” complained Matt. “What do we do now?” Matt looked a little worried, but Joey didn’t look worried at all, he just looked mad.
“Well…Well…Well…boys, look who we have here,” smirked the boy in the middle. “I thought I smelled something foul!”
“Shut up Zach!” Joey’s jaw twitched again.
“What’s wrong?” Zach walked a little closer. “Having second thoughts?” a nasty grin started spreading across his face. He’d be kind of cute, if he didn’t look so mean.
“I knew they would back out, I knew they wouldn’t do it,” said the boy with red hair.
“What’s the matter Joey, you chicken?” the tall boy flapped his arms like a chicken, while the other two laughed. I decided right then and there, that I didn’t like them…at all!
“Shut up you moron!” yelled Matt. I glanced at Matt and saw his face turning red, and then I looked at Zach, who looked even meaner than before.
“What did you say?” asked Zach angrily.
“You heard him,” Joey balled up his hands.
“I’d be careful if I were you,” threatened Zach. I looked around…from one boy to the next, it looked like there was going to be a fight, a real fight.
“Why don’t you leave them alone?” I snapped. Oh crap! Did I just say that…out loud! I bit my bottom lip. Why do I always open my big fat mouth, at the wrong time? It always gets me in trouble.
“Who’s going to make me?” Zach sneered. “You!” then the three of them laughed, so I gave them a dirty look. “You guys are mean!” I narrowed my eyes.
“If I were you…I’d keep my mouth shut and mind my own business,” Zach gave me an icy stare.
“Who’s gonna make me?” I wrinkled my eyebrows and clenched my teeth.
