Jimmy didn’t say anything but held Kate’s shoulder and moved through the crowd to a safer place.
The place didn’t much deserve the word safe either. It was messy too. It was the space between two houses. A huge garbage bin with scattered garbage around it served as cover. They stood behind the garbage bin and breathed the stench in the air.
Kate tried to move to a place farther away from the chaos. And the noise of shouting, screaming, throwing things, and beating was still audible.
“How did it happen?” She asked Jimmy.
“Gangs were fighting for territory, trouble provocation, revenge, and business rivalries.” Jimmy stared at the ground and said in a low voice.
“Gangs?” Kate was surprised. It was hard to imagine gangs fighting would happen in an alley close to school.
