He had grown up prematurely. He sat in the late afternoon light that cut through the kitchen, and read in a computer magazine as if it came to life. A single sentence jumped him in the eye .

There had not been anything alarming in the last number of Gamestation . On the contrary . Phoenix haved skimmed the usual articles on the latest news , gaming devices, and this week's theme cheat tips before he started on the reviews. He sea -facing sides with some anxiety until he put the center spread on the dining table . In particular, one of the reviews was a pleasure to read :
