The tall 16yr. old was a very fearfull young man trying to hide this fact via swearing like what he probably considered some tough SOB would be doing under circumstances of duress.
He and very little Brother walked down a hallway together hand-in-hand, the big boy leading.. the scare came from the other side of the wall, no person was chasing them or even able to be seen by them. The older boy screamed again swearing and took off very quickly back the way they had came, dragging little brother like a rag doll for maybe at least ten feet!
Some young girls in the group who didn't know him called him a "Pussy" (He didnot like that At All!)
Later infront of the Parents little boy said that "P" word and was told not to say it again!
I did feel sorry for the big boy, so scared trying not to show it but drastically showing it anyway with each turn. His true machisimo was down the toilet, out of reach.
