Intro: “The Rubberband Man”

This story was previously published in the 1991 edition of “Under the Clock Tower”, the Tarrant County Junior College literary journal.

The story is a bit of an anachronism now, as it comes from a time before there were so many school shootings, metal detectors, and before bullying became subject of national investigation. And it isn’t even about school violence as much as it’s about power, or the perception of power.

Kevin is the new kid at school, and is summoned for a meeting with the “reigning king” of the school, a bully with a curious modus operandi. Beyond that, I’ll let it speak for itself.
