I was riding my new bike to school when somebody threw an egg at me.

It was Derek who I’d later learn was the school bully.

“What are you gonna do about it?” he smirked as his buddies laughed.

I just ignored him, acted as if it wasn’t a big deal, and went to class.

Derek ruled the roost until he challenged my cousin Sam to a fight one day. Unbeknownst to him, Sam, who had recently transferred to our school, was an expert in martial arts.

It was schadenfreude I felt watching Derek get the whacking he truly deserved.

“Kevin, are you sure you want to challenge him?” Scott asked, referring to Homer. “He’s considered the GOAT and many agree.”

Kevin remained undaunted. Homer couldn’t bully him anymore.

They squared off right after school.

Kevin hit Homer in the face. He hit him again on the nose causing it to bleed.

“Is that all you got?” Homer smiled, wiping the blood off his face.

Now it was time for Homer to return the favor. He smacked Kevin like a punching bag. He fell to the ground many times but kept getting up earning the bully’s respect in the end.

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.

High School Memories

I graduated from elementary school in the Philippines with honors. I remember the high expectations. The day after graduation, I went to my maternal grandma’s house. I saw my aunts sitting around the kitchen table spending the afternoon with the latest gossip. When I passed by, they looked at me with admiring eyes. They marveled at how fast I was turning into a young man with a bright future ahead.
