Journal Entry 106
Casey returned to Bear Country sometime in the middle of the night. She didn’t even drop in my room to get Aleece. On the way down to breakfast Aleece and I stopped by Casey’s room. Casey was sleeping on her bed, still in her clothes. She looked as if she had crawled thru a swamp. For a brief moment, I thought of waking her up. A large pitcher of ice water would do it. I changed my mind; I didn’t want Aleece to see me yell at her mom.
Down at breakfast Aleece and I ran into Tony and Runt. Tony was making pancakes. I asked him “what was the occasion?” He said he was just in the mood. While eating breakfast Runt informed us, his real name is “Victor.” He said it was what his big brother used to call him. I didn’t even know the Runt had a brother and apparently neither did Tony. The both of us, in unison said, “You have a brother?” Runt (Victor) said he had a big brother named Price and that he was part of a bike tribe called the Devils of Lancaster. Victor said his brother was going to come back for him when he got bigger. Tony found Runt on our doorstep dirty and hungry. He had no idea the boy’s brother abandoned him. I had no idea. Another mystery solved.
