The Sniper

One night around 12:00am or so, I went out to the driveway to satisfy my bad habit after playing on the computer. I was standing in the cool night air looking around and noticed Andrew was still awake, I could see him in the window across the street in his room.

This was not an uncommon thing, Andrew was always awake very late. I continue on, when I hear Andrew open the window, so I look over and Andrew is looking out the window and is holding a stick or something, so I dont think anything about it.

I kept watching, (Andrew loved to sit on that part of the roof over the porch since it is pretty flat) Incase he climbed out the window I could yell at him to go back in. He had not noticed me standing in my driveway, he was just scanning the area from his vantage point.

I was getting ready to walk inside when I hear Andrew Yell "FREEEEZE", and hear a shot, I thought "Holy Crap Andrews got the Pelet Rifle out", and ducked behind my truck. I look over and Andrew is looking the other way, takes aim and shoots again.

Well, I yell at Andrew and ask if the gun is loaded, which turns out it wasnt, so I told him he probably needed to close the window and put the gun up, he said ok Mr. Bobby and closed the window, I went to bed...

Ok, last year Andrew and I were in 6th grade. Well one day Andrew decides to throw something at another kid. Well one of our teachers saw Andrew throw something. (i cant remember what it was) She gets all mad and yells down the hallway, "ANDREW RALEY, DID YOU THROW THAT????"  Andrew looked shocked that she saw him. He turns around and walks over to the teacher and says, "Yes ma'am." "Go pick it up, that's a strike!!!" (strikes are like conduct marks for middle schoolers. you get three in one week and you have detention) Andrew does as he's told and then walks over to his group of friends.

I saw what happened and decided to go laugh it off with Andrew. When i got over there he was talking about how crazy she was. Then he put one hand on one of his hips, pretended to filp invisible hair, made a funny face and said, "Andrew go pick that up!! That's a strike!!" in a girl-ish voice. Everyone who had heard him was cracking up!! Him and myself included. Oh boy I'm laughing as i type this. Oh how i wish to hear that again!!!! :D

I love you and miss you Andrew!!!!
