Blank Confession
by Pete Hautman

16-year-old Shayne Blank walks into a police station and announces that he has killed someone. Detective Rawls, intrigued by Shayne’s calmness, allows the teen to lead him through the entire story, right up to the murder — including his evolving relationship with Mikey Martin,who finds himself the target of a sadistic bully.

Mikey’s troubles start when he throws away a bag of drugs forced on him for safekeeping by his sister’s drug-dealing boyfriend. Consequently, he is threatened with bodily injury unless he pays Jon $500 (the arbitrary replacement fee for the drugs). Shayne offers to help Mikey sort out his situation. But Jon is an intransigent bully who refuses to listen to reason, resulting in several confrontations between him and Shayne that culminate in a violent showdown
