"Fuck this," said Jeff. "You guys stay here and guard the prisoners. I'm gonna go up and get that retarded fucker." Danny was holding onto a branch that came out of the part of the tree he was standing on, which was pretty high up off the ground. He probably could have jumped and been fine.
Jeff was climbing the tree, making his way over to the part of it where Danny was.
"Come on you stupid fucking faggot retard pussy penis," said Jeff. "All hope is lost for you. The Confederates have won."
Jeff got up to the branch of the tree where Danny was.
He started climbing towards him. Danny backed away. There was nowhere for him to go unless he jumped out of the tree, so it was pointless for him to try to get away. He started moving away from Jeff while Jeff moved towards him. Danny got out to where the branch was really skinny, and he just crouched there on top of the branch because he couldn't go any farther.
"Come on, you fucking shithead," said Jeff. "It's over. You're my prisoner. Get out of the fucking tree and go to prison so we can win."
Then they just stood there on the tree branch like that for a really long time.
"Jump," said Jeff. "Or else you're my prisoner."
Everybody on the ground started yelling "JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!"
Danny was scared. He wouldn't jump.
"NO!" he screamed down at us. It was the only time he ever said anything. His voice was really high and squeaky. He sounded like a girl.
"JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! JUMP!" we yelled. Even the other Union soldiers were yelling at him to jump.
Jeff threw his gun out of the tree, and it landed down below on the grass and bounced.
"Fuck you, you fucking asshole!" I yelled up at him. "That's my goddamn gun!" This was exactly the kind of thing that was always pissing off me and Jacob, when we lended the other kids our guns and they treated them like shit because they weren't theirs.
Then Jeff took off all his clothes. He started with his shirt. He put his arms inside his shirt and then he took it off and threw it out of the tree. Then he took his shoes off. That was easy because they were Velcro shoes. He undid the Velcro straps and kicked his shoes out of the tree.
"What the fuck are you doing?" Tommy yelled up at him.
"Takin' off my clothes," said Jeff.
Then he took off his socks and dropped them out of the tree. Then he took off his shorts and threw them down. Then he took off his underwear and threw it out of the tree. All his clothes were on the ground. Jeff was standing in the tree totally fucking naked. I couldn't stop looking at his penis. It was like a white turtle.
He started climbing out on the branch toward Danny. Danny just sat there. He didn't know what to do.
"Suck on my penis," said Jeff.
Danny just sat there.
"Come on you stupid fucking Chinese retard faggot," said Jeff. "See this? You know what this is?" He was holding his penis in his hand. "This is my penis. You don't have one of these. You have a vagina where your penis is supposed to be. That's because you're a girl."
