Jeffrey curses under his breath. That was close. Too close. We saw the light a millisecond before it saw us. We ducked down into the brush as fast as humanly possible, and even though I can feel the yucca digging into my leg with its razor sharp points, I don’t care. We escaped. It was an extremely narrow escape, but all the same, we made it. Go back about 45 minutes and you would see all of the teenagers at Deer Valley Ranch gathered on the deck. It’s ten o’clock and we are all wearing our darkest clothes. They have been hyping us up for this all week and now, it’s finally time. We are playing smuggler, a night game about stealth.
