For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 13 July 2018

Billy was the high school bully.

The authorities found him all gagged up and taped like a mummy in an abandoned shopping cart. When they asked him who did it, Billy wouldn’t tell. Aside from the obvious humiliation, he suffered from a broken leg.

I met him on the first day of school in the restroom where he grabbed my crotch. It was so hard that I cringed in pain but nobody gave a damn.

“It serves him right, eh, Connor?” Uncle Milt said.

I didn’t say a word. I just smiled at the man who was my boyhood hero.

    It’s always nice when bullies get their comeuppance.

    Dear Plaridel,

    Hard to feel sorry for the bully. I’m not saying I’m condoning Uncle Milt’s actions, but…;)

    Shalom,

        yes, and your nice post here will possibly offer some therapy to readers – as cheesy as it sounds – I believe that little bits and pieces is what helps us really heal.
        and side note – was just hearing someone talk about being bullied by a horrible person – but not your typical bully – for the girl was smaller than she – and had curly hair and freckles… hm

    This sounds like another bully I know who brags about grabbing women by the crotch. Perhaps someday he’ll get his as well.

    Bullying is on the top of my “really hate it” list. It’s always good when a bully gets what he’s got coming.
