LOCAL HERO GUEST OF HONOR AT HOMELESS SHELTER DEDICATION

The children in the back of the room had their own row on one side of the aisle. The heavyset one had been eating nonstop from a bag of greasy snack food from the moment he sat down. The two boys sitting in the middle had the look of middle-class suburbia about them. The fourth boy in the group had his hoodie pulled up so that most of his face was covered. There were two empty seats beyond the last boy, but nobody sat there because the child smelled faintly of cat urine.

The boys had been noisy throughout the ceremony. Crude jokes during the introduction, pointless conversation during Captain Hammer’s song, and finally they had blown raspberries throughout the struggle between superhero and aspiring supervillain. Only now, in the immediate aftermath of the Death Ray’s explosion were the children momentarily silent.

Across the room, Dr. Horrible knelt over the mortally-wounded woman. The red-head whispered something softly, then her eyes glazed over and her body sagged. At last, one of the children found his voice again.

“You killed Penny. You bastard!”
