|Billy:||Oh yeah, I remember the Bruise. He went around terrorizing my neighborhood. Everyone was afraid of him and no one seemed to be able to stand up to him... except for Mr. Anderson. But then the Bruise took care of him.|
|Spiderman:||Was Mr. Anderson one of those brave individuals who stood against injustice no matter how much it looked against him?|
|Billy:||Yes. The old man was known not to take much from anyone.|
|Spiderman:||Sounds a little like my Aunt May. Any special reason he was called the Bruise? And what did you do to finally stop him.
Here is the part where he tells me that he hit him on the head with his Friz-B.
|Billy:||He was called the Bruise because he had this big dark spot on his face right under his eye. But he liked to tell people that it was because of what he turned people who messed with him into; just one big bruise. Stopping him was easy. I just told his mother what he was doing.|
|Spiderman:||That's a strange solution. I wonder how he thought of that.
Did he have some strange psychological problem like he didn't like upsetting his mother.
|Billy:||You can say that. His mother wouldn't let him play with his toys or go out and play with anyone.|
|Spiderman:||Wait... How old is the Bruise?
Why is this kid smiling?
|Billy:||Oh he is as old as me. But back then he was six.|
|Spiderman:||Six? Wait. How did he take care of Mr. Anderson?
What is wrong with this kid. He looks constipated. Maybe perhaps because I caught him in one of his embellishments. I hope his resume isn't all embellishments. Everyone is allowed to exaggerate once in while.
|Billy:||He told the principal that Mr. Anderson hit him. When the principal saw the bruise on his face she fired him. She didn't realize that it has always been there.|
