I was beginning to develop a new respect for Brick Mason. He struck me as a kind of all-American golden boy that ran track and was on the swim team and probably came from a well-to-do background. Maybe he is a good actor, if he fooled me.

I still didn't wanna talk about it. But, he did tell me something about his past, something he probably didn't want people to know.
I guessed I owed him one...
