Has seen that which cannot be unseen.

Bart hastily retracted his hands in response to Jerry's threat, signaling a quick end to his attempt at conflict resolution. He hesitantly stood back, not willing to completely leave Jerry and Matt to their own devices, but afraid of what would happen should he try to get involved again.

The tensions between his companions quickly became the least of his worries as, unlikely as it may sound, he was faced with something even louder and scarier that Jerry: A jeep coming straight for them that showed no intents of stopping. As soon as he caught sight of the oncoming vehicle, he froze like the proverbial deer in the headlights, wide-eyed and staring straight at the heavy metal object hurtling toward him.

His senses returned to him with just enough time for his brain to send a crucial message to the rest of his body: GET OUT OF THE WAY! He dove off to the side, only making it a few feet before hitting the ground and clumsily rolling along in a manner most undignified. Fortune was just barely on his side, as he dodged the jeep by the most minuscule of margins.

When he came to a stop, he reopened his eyes and was greeted with the sight of Jerry lying behind the jeep. Even without looking closer, it was a pretty safe bet that the angry boy was dead, run down by the jeep. He was also aware that had his reflexes been any slower, he could have been in the same position. Speaking of said jeep, Bart was now lying near the driver's-side door. He picked himself up slowly, having a hard time standing on his violently shaking legs.

"H-hello...?" He fearfully called up to the driver, hoping against expectations that they would be merciful.
