Bud was adopted from a family named the Amoses. They already hade a son named Tod. Tod didn't like Bud so he would blame things on him. Then Bud got tired of everything and slapped Tod in the face and Tod acted like he was having an attack. Then the Amoses locked Bud in a shed where it was dark and old. There was bats and all type's of animals.
Bud finds a way out from the shed and he plans to give the Amoses revenge because of wag they did. Bud gets a jar fills it up with warm water and takes it to Tod's room and dips his fingertips in the water. ITs suppose to make you become a bed wetter. Unfortunately, Bud failed so what he did was just moved the bed covers and poured the whole water in his pants. The Bud got a gun the ASmoses had and took it outside on the porch where you could only see it during the day. Then he took his suitcase and left.
When Bud went escaped he went to stay there in the night on the basement. There were metal bars so what he did sleep next to a Christmas tree. The next day he went to the library and went to look for Ms.Hills/librarian. Bud saw someone different and placed his suitcase right next to the new librarian and went through the whole library to look for Ms.Hill. Then Bud asked for Ms.Hill and she said if Bud hadn't received the news and told him that she got married and moved to Chicago Illinois. Then he went back to the Christmas tree and slept.
