Store: Sterling Heights
Notable Gaming Release: Pokemon Jungle Expansion Packs
So this story takes place the day after my last story about the brawl that ensued in front of the store. It’s pretty much the same setup as the day before… I’m bored out of my fucking mind playing QIX and I’ve got yesterdays events still fresh in my head. I kinda hoped that I would see the return of the family from yesterday, if only to find out what happened to the two kids in the end. It also woulda been cool to have the mom apologize for breaking the door and for the crazy behavior of her kids that no doubt comes from a lack of solid parenting, but alas, I did not get such a treat.
Here is what I got. This story actually does start out just the same way. I’m playing my game, back to the front door, which if you haven’t read my previous post, is being held closed by two pieces of puffy two way tape since the hydrolic door closer is broken. Also just like yesterday, I hear the sound of little feet running, so I pause up my game, close up the GXTV, and get ready for it.
Few seconds after I turn around, what looks like a 10 year old boy comes running up to the door alone. Expecting him to fling the door open has me sadly let down. While yes he does rip the door open with all his force, he grabs it and closes it behind him, I’m a little amazed. He comes running up to the counter and I toss my greeting at him, and this is when it gets interesting.
The kid looks like he’s hyperventilating, breathing rapidly and can’t seem to catch his breath. He’s leaning on the counter with one hand, and has the other hand on his chest and tries to speak.
