"Please, Keith, please. You gotta be quiet. You gotta be quiet just for a little bit, okay?” his dad said with pleading eyes, and Keith immediately stopped his whining and squirming. “Your dad’s gonna deal with the bad people but you just have to make sure they don’t see or hear you. No matter what they say, don’t let them trick you into talking or coming out. Do you understand Keith? Keep quiet. Or else.”
He pulled his hand away from Keith’s mouth and smiled when Keith replaced it with his own and nodded his head.
“That’s my boy.”
