What would you do if the boy you bullied day in and day out, would ultimately decide if you live or die? This story is about bullying as seen through the eyes of a third grader named Calbert. Every day Calbert is forced to face his bully, Ernie, at school. Until one day when a teacher sends the boys to the storage room to pick up a few items. She is unaware of their bully/victim relationship. While in the storage room, the school catches on fire. The boys discover quickly that they are trapped. The only way out is through a high small window. Ernie must lift Calbert out the window. As he watches Calbert runs from the burning building, he wonders, will this boy who I have mistreated for so long, continue to run to safety or will he come back for me?
