I found out yesterday that the celebratory soccer riot that seemed so harmless and happy did, eventually, turn a bit violent. Twelve people were arrested for breaking windows and streetlamps. One of Andrew's friends had been there; he denied that things had been too crazy. Then he held out his palm--there was a hideous burn mark the size of a quarter. He dismissed it as nothing; he'd simply grabbed onto something that had been on fire.
