A boy named Midget approaches Rusty-James and tells him that Biff Wilson has vowed to kill him for something he said to Biff's girlfriend. Rusty-James arranges for them to meet in a vacant lot behind a pet store. Rusty-James arranges for some of his friends to go with him, as does Biff Wilson. Rusty-James wants to have some back-up in case it comes down to fighting, so that he will not be outnumbered.

This is not what Motorcycle Boy, Rusty-James missing brother would have wanted. Until he disappeared, he insisted and enforced a ban on all gang wars.
