even said good-bye to him or gave him a kiss. He must have made her really mad. After school, he will stop off at the store and get her some flowers. He saved up twelve dollars. Flowers should cost that much he thought. He saw his friends at the bottom of the hill in the street looking at something on the pavement. ďThis is where it happened.Ē Said someone in the group of kids huddled around the spot. What happen Billy thought to himself. He looked back and his mother was already back, out of sight. He sees the bus ahead, and the other kids already starting to board it. He better hurry he thought. He had better not be late for school.
As he started to run down the hill. He had seen the blacken mark in the street where the other kids had stopped before. He'd better not stopped to look at it cause he would miss the bus. Then his mother would be really mad at him. As he passed it, something drew him back to it. The bus was still waiting for a moment as other kids start to show up and boarding it.

It was relentless he couldnít get up he was stuck to the ground now. Next, there was blackness around him; covering him except for slot of light 8 Ė 10 inches tall. Afterwards, he saw a manís feet in the light then his knees, and he saw the manís face, at first it the expression on his face was of concern then horror. Billy saw the bus leave yet still stayed there. He didnít understand what he was seeing. He saw Mrs. Perl the bus drive comes out the bus and runs towards him. She got on her knees and looked towards me. Then her face was horrified, Billy wanted to say he was sorry for missing the bus. However, nothing came from him. He tried to raise his hand; nevertheless, he couldnít. He didnít
