The covert club has no money to fix the diving roof; we sit outside, secret handshakes ready, packed lunches at the side. This freedom has limits based on school nights and academic fights; a bad grade means no shown face. Report cards high-fived us like chainsaws; none of us passed that last math test. I’m real sorry.
