At the top of the stairs the boys stand side by side, feet wide apart, shoulders square and strong.
Big Dog is packing heat, well, in the form of a Nerf gun that shoots green foam balls. I look up, and Big Dog gives me a quick nod. "The Injustice Syndicate is at your service!" he announces.
Where does he get this stuff? "Are you bad guys?" I ask.
"Then you should be the Justice Syndicate. Though usually, doesn't syndicate imply," and before I finish, Big Dog takes aim with his shooter.
"Be free to scream." Pop. And a green ball comes flying in my direction.
I'm thinking they may have misled me about not being bad guys.
