‘This is my best chance’,Danny pedals the tandem bike ,with all his might.
‘They are almost here , pedal harder Danny’ , Josh prompts, pedaling his share,diligently.
‘I will die of thirst ,right here’ Danny pants , the bike a swirling wind.
‘You could never measure up , newcomers , we rule this neighborhood,’ Randy spits overtaking Danny’s bike with a thumbs down and his characteristic sneer.
‘Nothing short of victory ‘, Danny sees his mission driving him like a Leopard . Randy was now a few Maple trees away .
The blinding sun was a formidable opponent for the bikers too.
‘Very soon, you will know that you have been replaced ,Randy’, Danny could feel his shins palpitating too .’ And then , Josh will no longer be your fat Pumpkin or the Whelaphant’,Danny winces.
‘Danny ,please stop, call 911,I can’t breathe’ ,Josh utters with hands on his chest.The blaring siren of the ambulance brings the gang of bikers , together. Little did Randy’s team of 14 year olds know that casual bullying could sometimes result in a race against death.
