A Whateley Academy Adventure

Outside Kane Hall, Whateley Academy
There was nothing suspicious about the way the lanky boy walked around behind Kane Hall, to the area where staff parked; it seemed like he was an ordinary curious student wandering around campus. But a look at Bobby Earl's eyes would have given away that he was not just a freshman on a casual evening stroll instead, his eyes took in the areas around him slowly, scanning everything with deliberate precision. He was accustomed to being aware of his surroundings; years of moonshining and outwitting federal 'revenuers' had drilled some habits into his every behavior.
Satisfied that no-one was following him and that he wasn't attracting untoward attention, Bobby Earl strolled lazily to a particular vehicle, an older, two-tone blue Ford pickup, a four-wheel-drive diesel with some custom grill-work and wheels. To all outside appearances, he was merely admiring the truck.
