stomach just comes pouring down my

legs.

Jessica, Nate and Grace can’t help buy laugh.

MASON (CONT’D)

So I’m just standing there, shit

gushing down my thighs, I ruin my

fuckin’ favorite Nike’s, and

Wesley’s just there, doubled over,

losing it. I mean, he’s fuckin’

laughing so hard -

BOOM! The door from the unit flies open and Sammy comesrunning out in his underwear, swinging his doll around.

SAMMY:

Wooooohooooo!!!!

He takes off into the yard. Grace immediately takes offafter him. Mason follows right behind.

MASON:

Here we go Nate!

NATE:

Wait, what?

GRACE:

Come on, Nate!

Nate looks to Jessica, real nervous.

JESSICA:

Go!

Nate runs after them.

Grace and Mason begin to gain on Sammy.

GRACE:

Sammy!

Sammy fakes them out a couple of times, making them work forit.

Grace finally gets close enough to grab him. Sammy hoots,

like he's having a blast.

Mason grabs his arm.

SAMMY:

Let me go you fucking perverts!

Nate catches up.

GRACE:

Nate, grab his feet please.

Nate nervously follows directions, grabbing the boy's feet.

Together, Mason and Nate force him to sit down on the grass.

Sammy SCREAMS!

MASON:

We're just going to sit down hereon the grass until you de-escalate.

SAMMY:

De-escalate my asshole you duckfuckers!

The three sit down in the grass as Mason smiles to himself.

MASON:

I'm not quite sure what you mean bythat.

Grace holds Sammy's feet.

GRACE:

You know the drill Sammy, just letit pass.

Sammy keeps struggling, but quickly realizes he can't doanything.

MASON:

You alright buddy?

Sammy breathes heavily.

MASON (CONT’D)

You got pretty far that time, Ithink it’s a new record.

The three sit until things calm down.

And when it's finally calm, Mason continues like nothinghappened.

MASON (CONT’D)

So anyway, after all that, he endsup coming back with me, but onlybecause he’s so excited to tell

everyone on our unit that I poopedmy pants. And he does. He tells

everyone, somehow it even got backto my mom. You heard that story,

right Sammy?
