Chapter 1 of 4 – Fourth-grader JoJo has become the victim of bullying by the sixth-grade gang known as the Bully B’s: Bob, Bo, and Bill. JoJo’s mission is to discover a way to deal with them in a positive manner before they decide to beat him up again.
Chapter 1 – JoJo gets beat up by the Bully B’s
Life is full of choices. That’s what fourth grader JoJo discovered. As he left Harrison’s Drugstore, three sixth-grade tough guys yanked him into the alleyway. JoJo said, “Uh, hi ya, guys! What’s, uh, up?”
Bob, the leader of the Bully B’s said, “Not you! You’re going down!”
Then Bob punched him in the eye. Bo punched him in the stomach. Bill punched him in the shoulder. Then Bob knocked him over like a bowling pin. Afterwards, the Bully B’s ran off laughing.
Chapter 1A: JoJo’s Mom discovers his black eye
When JoJo’s Mom got home from work, she said, “Gasp! JoJo, what happened to your eye?”
JoJo said, “Uh, well, uh, … you see, uh, I, uh, tripped over my bike. Real stupid, huh?”
His mother said, “JoJo, you need to be more careful!”
JoJo nodded, “Yep! You’re right, Mom. I do!”
Chapter 1B: The next day at school
At school, at least twenty kids and all his fourth-grade teachers asked, “How did you get the black eye, JoJo?”
JoJo said, “Because I’m a klutz ! I tripped over my bike! Real stupid, huh?”
With all that lying, JoJo was hoping, “Maybe when the Bully B’s find out I didn’t snitch on them, they’ll leave me alone. At least, I hope so!”
Just in case, JoJo spent the rest of that week, looking over his shoulder.
