Bonfire

The cheerleaders sat frozen, cross-legged at the foot of the bleachers. One at a time, they turned their heads to the middle of the floor and began to clap. Side conversations fell away, replaced by an overwhelming roar of excitement. The bleachers began to tremble and the swish of cheerleaders’ pom-poms signaled the beginning of the chant:

“WE! ARE! NORTH! WEST! … WE! ARE! NORTH! WEST! … WE! ARE! NORTH! WEST!”
