I ran until my feet went numb. I stopped under a street light and tried to catch my breath. Up the road in the darkness, there was a gun shot. Dogs barked. I heard voices down a nearby alley. I ran to find a hiding place. I hid behind a dumbster and watched three guys walk out of the dark alley. I held my breath.
"He had it coming. It's cheeper to buy bullets than it is to buy drugs." One said.
"Let's get out of here." One sighed.
I couldn't see their faces. They walked down the streets right passed me and didn't know it. After they disapered I ran down the alley they came from. At the end of the alley there was another street light. Under the street light there was a young guy laying on his back in a puddle of blood. His face was warped and bloody. He looked like he was shot in the head. I shook my head and walked away.
"You have to pay for your pot one way or another." I sighed.
