We were nearly to the road when i felt Jem's hand leave me, felt him jerk back wards to the ground, i ran to the direction of him screaming.
i ran to Jems scream and sank into the flabby make stomach. Its owner said "ouf" and tried to catch my arms but they were steel. he's stomach was soft but his arms were like steel. He slowly squeezed the breath out of me. suddenldy he he was jerked backwards and flung on the ground
I thought he went to the tree and leaned against it.
Ones mind works very slowly at times. Stunned, i stood there dumbly. The scuffing noises were dying, someomne wheezed and the night was still again.
