Just regular guys .. hung out together .. out for a bit of fun. Chasing the girls .. out on the hunt. Young men pushing themselves. Testing their limits. Playfully goading each other. Seeing how far they could go.
Sometimes a laugh went too far. They’d had to lay low a few times .. brothers angry at their sisters’ distress .. girls sad the guys had not hung around. As-often-as-not the pair escaped trouble by the skin of their teeth. All part of the fun.
Always up for a challenge. Pushing each other .. pushing back. Testing. Seeing what each was made of. Daring. Seeing how far the other would go.
Yes, a few times a laugh went too far. They finished up laughing on the other side of their face. A laugh could go sour. Truth was ….. Some fun …. It came with a cost.
