"Had enough yet?" Johnny grinned, moving away from Austin for a moment, giving him a breather. This had become routine again for the Saints. Boss had been busted out with the help of Carlos and they were all together again, building up the crew, the scraps that Julius had left behind. In a way, it was therapeutic for him, to be up and murderin’ again.. Well, not so much murdering because that was on hold for the moment until they’d figured out their next move, but you got the idea.
They were halfway through canonizing a young Austin Rhett; fit, smart and your all-around tough guy, it seemed. Johnny saw real potential in him and had even volunteered to tutor him in the way that Dex had tutored him and Troy had tutored Boss.
Austin had already taken quite the beating from some of the other Saints and Johnny himself. Hell, Shaundi had even throw in a couple of punches - but Austin, as expected, had taken it like a man and fought it out ‘til the end. That was what earned him some real respect around here.
Johnny landed one last blow to the jaw before motioning for those who encircled Austin to move away. “Alright, enough!" He called out, shuffling to the side slightly and crossing his arms over his chest. "He’s proved himself. Good job, kiddo."
