A little boy fears for his life after accidentally spilling his drink on the school bully.

October 3, 2009~

Dear Diary~

I'm a dead man.

It's a wonder I'm still here, a day later, after what happened yesterday.

I was at lunch when it happened.  I was carrying my lunch tray to a table when I tripped.  I tried to keep from falling; it didn't work.  When I fell, my lunch tray went flying into the air; the contents did the same.  Pizza, fruit cup, my Juicy Juice mango drink:  all went flying everywhere. 

When I looked up, I was horrified to see the cold, steel-grey eyes of Hoss.  The class bully.  Pizza was sliding down the size of his nose; my Juicy Juice was now running down from his hair into his eyes.  He looked mad as hops.  The look on his face said:  "Yer a dead man, McGee!!"

That was the last thing I remembered before I took off running like a cheetah.  I heard Hoss's roar of rage, but I didn't care.  I wanted to get the heck out of there, or else Hoss was gonna have me, Braxton Phillip McGee-Colson, for lunch!!

I hid in the locker.  My dark, smelly locker.  I stood there, in total darkness, with only a tiny shaft of light poking through, praying for my life.  I didn't know if God was real or not, but if there was any time I needed God, it was like right now!  I prayed for Him to keep me alive, to keep Hoss from giving me a good pounding.

I stayed in the locker until well after the bell rung.  When I thought it was safe to leave, I exited, shaking like a leaf; I then ran down the halls, out the door, and then streaked towards my home several streets down from the school, where I lived.

By the time I reached my house, I was sweating bullets and gasping for air.  I sounded like an asthmatic horse.  I never was so scared as I was then.

Still am scared, for I am sure that Hoss will spend a good part of the weekend trying to find me, so he can turn me inside out.

I ddin't mean to fall!  It was just a horrible accident!  I tripped over my big, clumbsy feet; it just happened that Hoss was in the way when the food and drink went flying!  Now I am a dead man; it is going to take a miracle for me to survive this weekend, not to mention, the start of a brand new school week!  If Hoss ever finds me, I'm toast!

I might as well start writing out my will (not to mention, looking for a grave for someone to bury me in) right now because I don't have many days left ...

Very entertaining and yet so true of a lot of kids these days. Bullies are just overgrown cowards. It is usually best to stand your ground. They will soon find someone else who is weaker to pick on. J'nia

I have been there and felt the weight of a bully's stare for when I was young I was the skinny runt that got sand kicked into my face. Fortunately (at least in Canada)there is now a no tolerence policy in most schools that bullying is an automatic reason to hopefully this is one of those schools and the boy will talk to someone about his fears...

Benn there, didn't run. Got suspended for trashing the bully. Small boy can carry a wallop you won't believe, that if one can jump over fear.

What a terrible ordeal for any kid to go through.

Oh! That poor child! I felt his terror as he faced off with the bully. Being a small puny child growing up, I was often the target so I can relate to the fear. Great piece Karen!
