The pledge: Logan Cross was suddenly aware of the significance of the moment. It almost felt like a baptism into manhood. He felt ten feet tall. Scoutmaster St. Michael stood incredibly close to Logan to pin the badges onto him. The moment felt very intimate. St. Michael caught Logan’s eye and blushed noticeably. The Scoutmaster then stepped back to admire his handiwork before attempting to smooth out a crease in the boy’s shirt, his hand slowly running up and down Logan’s chest in a gesture which could have been interpreted as a sexual overture. Logan Cross, Ryan St Michael. Scout Boys.
