*Mike looks at Alejandro wearily as he gets up. Paulo makes a fist and scowls, while Daisy huddles up behind him.*
*Mike scratches the back of his head.*
Mike: Money back? But I ate th’ choc’lates!
*Alejandro smirks and folds his arms. Toby stands behind him.*
Alejandro: You were a few seconds over.
Toby: Easy mistake to make, kid!
*Alejandro looks down at the radio. A scar is evident below his eye.*
*The radio sits trashed on the ground. Mike looks up, blankly.*
Alejandro: That was an expensive radio.
*Alejandro leers at the group.*
Alejandro: I think you’ll all need to pitch in for that.
Alejandro: Let’s say $200. I’m sure a bunch of rich kids can handle it.
*Daisy watches Alejandro, fearful. Paulo protectively puts an arm out in front of her.*
Paulo: Oh, SHUT UP! We’re just trying to get home, alright?
*Paulo shrugs and grits his teeth, irritated. Alejandro looks confused.*
Paulo: Like we’re scared of two punks. Let’s just go.
*Alejandro recomposes himself. He crosses his arms and laughs.*
Alejandro: You don’t know what you’re getting into.
*Daisy looks worried. Paulo maintains his scowl.*
Alejandro: Stay out of trouble, kid. Pay up and you’ll get home fine.
*Paulo, gritting his teeth, balls his hands up into fists and gets ready to spring forward.*
Paulo: Just leave us the hell alone, OKAY?!
*Paulo rushes at Alejandro. Daisy covers her mouth in fear.*
*Toby snarls at Paulo, stopping him in his tracks.*
Toby: BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK
*Alejandro watches with a smirk as Paulo’s tail fluffs up.*
