Cutting across the yard on the way to school had been a habit for Oscar. But today when he gazed at the caution tape across the old McAllister place, he shivered while memories niggled like dead flies waking up on a warm windowsill in winter.
The night hung in the foggy corners of his mind. He had gone out with Marty and Dave after they paid a guy ten dollars to buy a handle of Jim Beam. Oscar didn’t drink a drop, but his head throbbed with every step. His swollen knuckles must have battled a cheese grater.
He found Dave in the parking lot.
“Dude! Where’d you go?”
Oscar’s heart fell into his bowels. “Wasn’t I with you?” The recollection twitched.
“After you caught that bum attacking Cindy, you vanished! And how’d you get to McAllister’s so fast?”
The realization crawled out of the darkness, stunning Oscar. Oh my God. I flew!
