William Howard Taft High School was the beginning of the end of life as Allen Jones had known it. Jones was continuing where he left off in Clark Junior High, going to all his classes and playing basketball. However, for the first time in his life, he was having problems with his game. Meanwhile, the situation on the streets was getting so bad that Steven Brown's mother sent him back home to the West Indies so he would stay out of trouble. Already an expert at leading a double life, Jones kept his undercover hustle when he first started dealing. This was the first time in his life he had money in his pocket, and he began to do some serious shopping, all at locations far from the Lester Patterson Houses. Jones encounters the Bitch Queen Heroin, and he would soon learn to render unto her the same respect his addicted brothers did.
