"Mike was leaning on Wesley Cobble's Mustang in the student lot. Wesley walked over and said something to him. Mike got of the car, but then he swung at Wesley. Wesley took the punch right on the jaw. He didn't move. Even from far off, I could see Mike's eyes change." This scene is very surprising for how friendly he is later on in the novel.
To me, Wesley resembles a porcupine. He is protective and also threatening, but he really is a nice person behind all those spikes.
Dreams for the future
He may start becoming friends with other people and Scott may incorage him to read some books.
