Chaper 13.

Just Thought I’d Tell You – Chapter 13 

          Fights were well-attended events, but it was nearly always the Big Boys who had them. 

          One day in a class where we were being encouraged to make something brightly coloured from soggy newspaper, I said “I’ll have a fight with you, Fearny.”

          And he said “Alright”.

          So everyone arranged it and we met in Gloucester Street after school.

          I was bigger than him, and a man got off his bike and told me so.   Everybody told him that Fearny had started it so off he rode again.

          I won because Fearny cried first and Mom arrived too late to stop us.   She wanted to know why it had happened but I didn’t know.
