There is a place that Max likes to go in his head.Its like your a cloud no you are the cloud.He could not stay as long as he wanted because Gram was knocking on his door.
Kevin and Max were walking to get to the fireworks when they saw Tony D.(the blade). Max knows Tony D. is bad news but Kevin thinks Max can take him. Automatically Kevin calls Tony D. a cretin with means a stupid person. Soon they hear a police car and Tony D. and his gang run off.
After the fire works Kevin was sitting on Maxes shoulder and he spots Tony D. Kevin is steering Max into the millpond the mud is past Maxes knees. Kevin looks behind them and Tony D. is head deep and his gang is trying to get him out. Kevin hears a siren and gets the cops attention.
