RUN, COPPER, RUN
The young cop parked his motorcycle beside the tree and headed toward them.
The moonlight caught the sheen of their black leather jackets, the tight fit of their blue jeans, the steel tips of their boots...caught the taunting smile on their lips as they stood waiting, six against one.
Take it easy, the cop told himself. They're just kids. But he knew better. He remembered what they had done to the girl, how they passed her around before they messed her up. And he knew that he couldn't let them get away with it.
He had to face them. He had to fight them. Here. Now.
