Hank nearly exploded.

Bobby Hank started, but then looked around him. Everyone was
nodding their heads at him. Hank sighed, All right, fine, Bobby.

you are. But dont think Im happy about your decision, though,
next week, Bobby was sentenced to a week of community service. He
had to pick up trash along the freeways and then clean up graffiti on

couldnt have gone on any longer without telling. It would have
gotten him in even more trouble.
