Extracts from this document...


It was almost one O'clock and the afternoon heat made him tired. He looked around for a shortcut. Ray-J then realised that spinning his head was not such a good idea as the polluting fumes seemed to get to his head quicker, making him dizzy. He then decided to take a cool shadowy alley. The alley was about fifty yards away, but seemed much further in the heat. On one side of the street, the grey stoops stepped up to the graffitied apartment doors.
