Heat #10


So we made a pact, me, Doug and Archie. We'd never argue anymore. Whoever felt like fighting would just walk away and the others would understand and let him be for a while.
It worked. We went a whole week without arguing. Not bad, compared to the previous few weeks.
Honest, we'd be a good example to grown ups.
Because still the heat burned the sky.
Because when the water lorries came out dishing out water and when the milk lorry came around doling out milk, the adults would argue and often have to be pulled apart, yelling and crying.
