The hot rays of the sun beamed down me, and I couldn’t help but feel like a bug gradually burning under a sunbeam in a microscope. It was a usual Texas summer, it wasn’t even really June yet, but Texas only really had two seasons: Winter and Summer. I walked to my car, squinting at the sun. I pulled out my keys and I was just ready to unlock it when I heard someone call my name.

I had never seen it used as a weapon before, but when he tried to attack me with a stick, I couldn’t help but laugh. I wasn’t going to let him take the treasure from me—I needed it to save a life.
