your voice is your biggest weapon
A HAIRBRUSH IS NOT A GUN!
Everybody wants to talk about how Khalil died, but this isn't about how Khalil died. It's about the fact that he lived. His life mattered. Khalil lived!
Explosions and tear gas exploded around them and they struggled to breathe and find a way to escape. They soon get on a truck that took them to their dad's store.
My eyes!! ... *cough cough* Oww my eyes are burning!!
DISPERSE!! this is no longer peaceful!
At their dad's store, everyone pours milk over their eyes and faces, as it causes relief from the burning sensation they were feeling because of all of the explosions. The people who brought them their leave with cartons of milk to go help others. Seven, Starr, Chris, and DeVante are the only ones left in the store.
They get trapped in the store after someone throws something lit on fire into it. They also don't have keys to unlock any of the doors and their paths are blocked by flames.
King did it.
Everyone around them snitch on King for igniting the fire, even though he is very powerful.
