through a child's eyes #8

Jason rode up to the two bikers. "Hey, are you guys in a gang?"
"Yeah. What of it?"
"You should let me in!"
One of the men smirked and leaned forward on his bike. "Do you ride, kid?"
"Are you fucking blind?! Of course I do!"
The man who had spoken took offense to Jason's disrespect, but the other biker was impressed. "He meant 'do you ride a motorcycle'... that's a baby scooter that you're on."
Jason's eyes squinted. "Fuck you... I'll race your ass!"

Both men started laughing.
"This kid's got fire in his veins! Maybe we should give him a chance."
The other man studdied Jason carefully in contemplation. "Nah, fuck that... let's just take his scooter."
"Okay, that works too."

Later that night, Jason was on the phone with his grandmother.
"So the men stole your scooter and you had to walk home?"
"Yeah, Grandma... they were total assholes!"
Laughing erupted from the other end of the line. "You little pussy!"
Jason replied with a prompt, "Fuck you, Grandma!!!" but she was laughing too hard to hear it.
