¨...I felt like the shed was getting smaller and smaller, and little mouths were getting closer and closer¨.
¨What I thought was a vampire bat hanging on the ceiling was really a hornets´ nest and now there were about six thousand hornets flying around in the tiny shed, and each and every one of them was after me!
¨I was still scared, but now it was the get-real-excited-and-want-to-move-around- kind of scared¨. Bud was so scared, he tried to get used to the darkness.
¨The only thing i could think to do was jump on the woodpile and bust the glass out of the window¨.
Bud was getting really scared because of what Todd was telling him. Todd was telling him that there were blood and missing children in there, and that there was vampire bats.
¨I simmered down and started thinking about getting even. I wondered how hard i´d have to pull the trigger on the double-barrel shotgun for it to go off.
Bud did not hit vampire bats, he hit bees. They were stinging his face, arms, and legs. This really slowing him down.
¨One of the older boys at home told me that if you dipped someone´s hand in a warm glass of water whilst they´re sleeping they don´t have any choice but to pee the bed¨.
Bud was eager to get out of the shed. He was angry at Todd, but mostly the Amose´s for putting him in the shed when he did nothing wrong.
Bud was seeking revenge for Todd first because he made this all happen in the first place. So he is making him wet the bed because his parents hate that.
Bud is now seeking his revenge. He is going to put Todd´s middle finger in warm water so he will wet the bed. This will make him pay for what he had done.
