Hello! It's Fiction Friday!!!
Today, I decided I'd finally finish off a piece I started back in 2008 for the Faithwriters Challenge to illustrate the meaning of the adage "You are known by the company you keep," without using the actual phrase. I liked this one, but ran out of steam, or confidence, or something. So you get to read something never before seen by the public! (A rare occurance for my Friday Fiction.) Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy!

I can see him hidin' behind the crepe myrtles at the back of the parking lot. Well, I guess "hiding" ain't the right word, cuz I can see him, right? He thinks he's goin to catch me doing something.
And I know he's thinkin that, cuz he's slowed his patrol car to a crawl more than once this summer to call me out.
"I got my eye on you, Son. You best be rememberin' that."
"Where ya headed, Son? Gettin' dark - ya best be gettin' home soon."
My sharp elbow in Jason's ribs succeeds in gettin his attention away from the two shapely chicks sashaying toward the gate.
