You could tell it was going to be a huge party because almost nobody had heard of the kid who was throwing it.
Word was that his name was Tyler Hadley, he attended Port St.
Mike, a popular, athletic junior, knew the host only by sight.
Tyler was distinctive looking, tall and skinny, nearly cadaverous at six foot one and 160 pounds.
If the neighbors got alarmed, they might call the police."Actually, just stay in the house," said Tyler to nobody in particular. I don't care."Mike was talking with some girls on the couch when a very drunk skater kid — he looked like one of Tyler's friends — ambled over."I smell dead people," said the skater, giggling. A large crowd had gathered around the beer pong table.
