They All Shut Up

“She seems perplexed as hell that he said something. I don’t know this kid well enough to know if his interference is the most surprising element of this entire situation. If you ask me, the weird part about it is how everybody reacted. They all shut up. They didn’t question him, didn’t laugh or ask why, they didn’t ignore him and continue with the ridicule, and they didn’t turn their derision on him. They just stopped, he said Enough and that was that. Because I said so. End of story. Don’t make me have to tell you twice.”
