The Beanpole

Johnny always stood out, tall for his age and thin he was subjected to sneering and staring. He didn’t like being compared to his peers, even as he bulked up. He still sulked whenever he saw a man build up muscle more easily than he does. He remembers another man taunting his frame and running away from him.


But one day he saw the other man’s house was burning and he had to help. He had to get his cat away from the fire as soon as possible, moving it to a vet. Then he had to get many of his belongings while the bulkier man had to fight fire. He had to send the other one to the hospital for treatment. When he got healed, he took him to the vet to get his cat.


Then they went to a new home and started going to church together.
