Exit The Warrior, Today's Tom Sawyer

YIKES. Something about this kid gives me the heebie-jeebies, in that Damien-from-"The-Omen"-kind of way.
Is it the strange choice of hat?
The knowing smirk?
The sweater vest?
What is he hiding behind his back?
Is it Aunt Polly's whitewash brush?
Or the severed head of a monkey, bought from the back of a windowless van?

He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it - namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to obtain.
