“You’ve always wondered why I never hung out with Sam and part of the reason is that he likes to get others in trouble and he’s not a very nice guy at all, even though he comes off as a polite guy to adults, it’s just an act. Do you remember the time I came home from the cliffs and you asked me if I’d had fun?”

“Yes, I remember that day, you said not really and that you didn’t want to talk about it.”

“You know how there’s that bridge that’s close to the cliffs, well Sam took a cat up there and threw it over and into the water. Johnny and I jumped in and luckily we were able to save it.”

“Oh, my goodness, what a horrible little monster he is!”

To be continued …

  1. Sam has gotten off to a bad start. I hope he will receive the help he needs before he does anymore damage to others and to himself. To learn more about Sam, I think some other characters will be a part of this story.
    I’m glad you didn’t make us wait long to read this week’s SSS!

  2. You know, this is a very realistic story. Kids don’t have it easy, trying to choose friends with good character, ethics, morals. Great job with the prompts!
