Published by Seth Harwood
Chapter 6 of YOUNG JUNIUS - in which Big Willie Stash decides Junius's fate. More info at http://sethharwood.com Young Junius is available now from Tyrus Books wherever books are sold.

In 1987, fourteen-year-old Junius Posey sets out on the cold Cambridge (Mass.) streets to find his brother’s killer in a cluster of low-income housing towers—prime drug-dealing territory. After committing a murder to protect his friend, he finds himself without protection from retribution. His mother gives him fifty dollars and instructions to run, but Junius refuses to live a life in hiding. Instead, shocked by the violence he’s created and determined to see its consequences, he returns to the towers to complete his original mission.

"Harwood’s cutaway view of a single bloody day in a housing project is an impressive feat . . . Harwood’s empathy runs deeply indeed." -- Booklist on YOUNG JUNIUS

"Searing . . . a vicious black comedy of murderous errors. Harwood pulls no punches." -- Publishers Weekly on Seth Harwood's Young Junius

 At Willie’s office
in the back of Armando’s Pizza, Junius let Elf tellthe story.The nine sat unloaded on Willie’s desk, clip by its side. Williepicked it up and smelled the barrel as soon as Elf started to talk.“This best be good,” he said.Elf took his time filling things in, explaining about Derek andNess more than he had to and describing in great detail how Lamarchanged the situation by pulling his gun. The whole time, Williestared at Junius, daring him to speak.“I busted shots,” Junius said, as Elf told Willie that he squared up with Lamar. The cuts on his face told that story—more than enough said. Willie grimaced. On either side of the desk, Omar and Jacksonstood tall.“I pulled the gat and Lamar called me out. He had the Glock soI had to dead it, right? First to deal, first to do?”“First to die.” Willie shook his head. He shook a Kool from hispack, tapped it against the desk twice and then raised it to his lips. Jackson leaned down with the lighter. As Willie exhaled, he sat back in his chair. “What you learn?”
