Inez Porter beamed as she looked at her son. He was dressed in his first communion suit, his hair slicked down save for the cowlick that couldn't quite be tamed even for such an important occasion.

"Baby, you look so handsome," she said, crouching down in front of Will and taking his little hands in hers. "I'm so proud of you today. You're Mommy's big boy, aren't you?"

He smiled back at her and nodded. Over all, this was turning out to be a very good week for him. He had lost two front teeth and been visited by the tooth fairy. Now, he was getting ready to go to the church in order to receive his first communion. He knew just how important this day was for him, but more than that he understood how much it meant to his mother. If only his new shoes didn't hurt so much.

Dad told me the best way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him. Yeah, right. Easy for him to say. He's a grown up and grown ups don't have to worry about this stuff. If I stand up to Larry Dire, he's gonna kill me. Nobody stands up to him. I don't know why I'm the guy he picks on more than anyone else, but he does. What sucks is the teachers never see him punch me. I told Mom and she wanted to call the principal. Great. That's just gonna make it worse. Dad told her I need to deal with it like a man. I don't know what that means but if it's that standing up to him stuff, I'm outta luck. Mom said Larry's jealous I'm smart. I don't think she's right. I think Larry just likes hitting me. But I guess I can try to be dumb like him if it means he'll leave me alone. I don't think he will. Maybe I'll pretend to be sick tomorrow morning.
