Varsity football games are what give these small towns the energy to go through the week. Without these nights there would be nothing that the community would look forward to and it would start to disintegrate.

He also tries to trick her by saying that the gun is for his father. Technically Dave never gets permission to own the gun, so it never actually belonged to him.

We live in the city now and the only way I could get on the roof is if I have a huge latter. Goodbye peace. I'm not use to so many houses being around either. The backyard is huge, it has a in-ground pool. We did have neighbors where we lived but they were like half a mile down the road.
So besides being in school, the only other thing that I use to get through and describe my life, what keeps me stress free, a place to run away too, is the big diamond with dirt and grass all around. Once I step on the field, my whole emotion, whole style on how I look at things change. Its almost like heaven since no one can play the game the way I do by how I think, and hence always ready to get at it. Whether it goes from fielding the baseball hit to me at the field, or getting behind the plate and getting ready to hit the ball somewhere trying to be successful. No matter what it is, grades, friends, sports, I always get back up and keep trying.
