I'm getting worried about Bert. We figured he would be fine finishing out high school. His house is only about a mile away from us, and he always has his phone on him. And while he's at school, well...safety in numbers, right? Anyways, little bugger saw the Problem today. During last class of the day, maths. Inside. Was just standing outside his classroom, he says. Nobody else seemed to notice. Freaked the kid out so much, he ran the whole mile or so from his bus stop here. Didn't think to call us or something, the idiot. Was pouring down rain. Now he's refusing to go to school anymore. Wants to just stay with us. We're debating whether we should force him, and just drive him ourselves. We still don't think anything will happen on school grounds.
Crap, the kid's sneezing. Think he caught a cold. Serves him right. Phone's on practically a fll charge, we would have picked him up.
