Lump is a boy that is bullying Boo.
Boo doesn’t know his real name, just this moniker that apparently the boy calls himself.
Lump goes to both of Boo’s schools, at the mainstream school he just calls Boo names.
At the Specialist School, Lump is violent.
He pushed Boo down the stairs. Hurt his arm and made him cry.
He calls Boo stupid, ugly, says he has no friends and no one will ever like him.
I called the schools to ask them to keep these boys apart, and to express my disappointment that Boo is not supervised in the playground as I was assured he was.
Turns out Lump is an opportunist.
He waits until Boo is alone. His aide is occupied.
Between classes when the aides switch.
Coming out of the bathroom.
These are the times that Lump strikes.
On Friday when I picked Boo up he said he had a bad day.
That Lump was at school and he hurt him again.
That Lump stabbed him.
In the stomach.
His intestines were all over the floor and he had to go to the hospital.
But the doctors fixed him and gave him special medicine so there is no mark.
We can’t call the police because Lump hides under ground.
Cause that is where he lives.
He wont follow us home though. He only lives at school.
No one else can see him.
Lump is inside of him.
A manifestation of God only knows what.
Deflecting attention from when he gets angry or overwhelmed and does something ‘naughty’.
It is not as bad as what Lump does.
Does he think Lump is real? I don’t think so.
So does this mean he is lying?
Trying to pull the wool over our eyes?
Theory of motherfucking MIND?
I don’t even know where to go with this.
Imagination. Theory of mind. Lying.
Typical 5 year old imaginative ‘play’?
All I know is I don’t like this and I want it to go away.
Cause Lump is breaking my heart.
