35. a little closer
The car ride home was silent as they drove back to the North part of town. The low sound of sniffeling brought hunter back as he turned to look at Miranda who sat across from him. "What's wrong?" Hunter whispered as he turned to face her. Miranda abruptly stopped and face him, her eyes wet. "While Jason and i were running one of the guys caught up to us and yanked my hair really hard" she said weakly as she smoothed the back of her hair.
Once Josh pulled the van in the driveway it was getting dark and Lana's house lights were on. Josh pulled the key out of the ignition and unlocked the car.
"HEY WHO ARE YOU?" Josh yelled. Hunter turned to his left and all of a sudden a dark figure in a hood emerged from the backyard wearing a robbery mask dashed down the street knocking over garbage cans as he went.
"He came out from the back door of the house! After him!" Josh rushed as he started the car again. Hunter started to sprint down the driveway after the figure. Hunter didn't dare to look back for fear he would loose the running guy. He was slowly catching up to him. Behind him he heard more footsteps catching up behind him. Hunter quickly glanced behind him and saw Jason followed by miranada, Lana and tiffany. But where was victor? " come on!" Hunter shouted to the others. Hunter could tell the guy in the mask was getting tired. All of a sudden Josh's car speed past him and swirled blocking the way of the guy. Hunter watched as the guy dashed around the car and off the street into a neighbor's backyard. He heard Josh curse But hunter wasn't going to give up so easily. He followed the figure as the guy went through some bushes and over two fences. Finally it was time. Hunter used all the energy he had left and jumped forward grabbing on the man as the both fell to the ground. The guy then gave a hard punch in hunter's stomach but hunter recovered quickly and grabbed the figure again.Hunter then gave a hard punch to the guys face, harder then he intentioned to and it knocked the guy right out. Hunter watched as the figure's body crumpled to the ground. "I missed all the fun"Jason said as he gasped for air.
" I knocked him out" hunter said as he stared at the fist he punched him with.
" at least we got him now" Jason sighed
" but I didn't mean to knock him out though. I always go to far"hunter frowned.
Lana soon came gasping behind them.
" let's bring him back to my house so we can question him"
