Tanya’s lips curled into a smile. “One o’clock tonight. ” Her pale blue eyes seemed a little mocking. “Cowboy, fill him in on the rules. ” Six Monsters Among Us By Gloria Weston His name is Harrison Bentley. His friends call him Bents. Others among us call him a troll. A few nights ago he was beaten, stripped of his clothes, and bound with ropes to the steep downhill tracks of Funland’s Hurricane roller coaster.
Jeremy felt as if ice had been jammed against his groin. “I don’t have a quarter,” he said. His voice sounded whiny. ” The bum’s waiting hand jiggled up and down. “You’re a good kid, huh? ” Jeremy flinched and staggered backward as someone lunged past him and whapped the bum in the face with a cowboy hat. “Get outta here! Get! ” The bum, ducking and covering his head, rushed away.
