While the others were chattering away, Mark was walking quietly beside Andrew. He needed some time in peace and quiet.
Mark stole a quick glance at his companion and wasn’t surprised by what he was seeing.
The usual Andrew outfit. The same old thing Andrew always wore for special occasions. Or, for that matter, the same old style he wore to everywhere else except school: a cowboy costume, complete with high quality, polished boots, and a new cowboy hat atop his head. Sometimes Mark wondered if he wore them to sleep.
