New Beginning 524
He didn’t mean to leave. It just ended up that way. At the time he woulda said he only wanted to scare his folks a bit. You know, yella little, slam the door, and give ‘em something to think on. At least that’s what Billy would say today if you asked him. But you can’t ask him, of course, 'cause Billy McClure is gone.
Oh he’ll be back. He always comes back. And usually he tell you the silliest stories when he does. Some of ‘em are scary too. Some sad. I don’t like the sad ones much. And I really don’t like the ones where there’s kissin’. In fact, I told him if he caught anymore of those kissin’ stories, why he could just keep ‘em to hisself. Billy says he goes swimmin’ in a think pond. His Momma says he goes off to the Devil. I think he just finds himself a tree and climbs up for a little get-a-way.
Mebbe he's up that tree right now. I dunno. That's the thing with Billy McClure -- no one ever knows where he goes or when he'll be back. So leave yer message after the tone.
