“We were about to hop the fence when we found him. My friends just straight up split. They were scared. I decided to stay, I guess. I’ve only been here five minutes… Do you think someone jumped him? He won’t talk. I don’t know what to do.“
“If I were you I’d leave too. Nighttime is a bad time to be out alone these days.“
“Shouldn’t we call someone?“

“Buddy, I’ve been working in the tunnels for 15 years and I still get the heebie-jeebies every time I get on the muck train.
