Raccoon slipped the note in Owl’s pocket in the busy, locker-lined hallway. The final bells had rung. Owl was on his way home and Raccoon was being marched into another stint of detention by his exasperated math teacher.
They pretended to ignore each other, to give nothing away.
Owl decoded the message on the bus ride home, memorized it, then shredded the note and let the little bits of paper fly from his hand hanging out the open window.
After dinner, they met at the loops of barbwire in the old fence and set out to avenge Raccoon’s wrongful imprisonment.
Oh, and if anyone is interested the collected adventures of Owl and Raccoon can be found here.
