12. What Happened After

Next day I took it into school with me last night I had even some polish to make it look shiny. I waited outside Squirt’s form room and waited for him. When he arrived I waited five minutes for him to see if he was still very angry, then I approached him. I gave him the viola back in its case and he seemed amazed. ‘Woodwork is the only subject I’m good at.’ I turned around and looked at him ‘Listen kid because I’m only gonna say it once, I’m sorry for all things I’ve done and said, I’ve just had a rough life.’ ‘Tell me about it.’ He replied. Just then the bell rang for form so I made a quick decision. ‘How about at lunch, it’s on me?’ I offered. He nodded and went into his form room. At lunch I bought him some spaghetti for all the times I took his money. He entered the lunch hall and sat down. Here tuck in, it’s the last thing I can do for taking all that money off you.’ I passed him the spaghetti and some cutlery. He was eating like a horse but I didn’t mind. ‘Listen, I’ve decided to move on,’ He looked up at me, ‘there is another school nearby and I’m going there to make a new start because I now have dark memories from here.’ I got up to leave but he protested. ‘You can’t go’ I gave him the only riddle I ever worked out. ‘The only question I have ever answered is: What’s always in front of you but you can never see it?’ I started to leave and he thought about it. ‘I don’t know,’ He answered ‘Air? A ghost?’ ‘No, the future, Squirt.’ And with that I left the school went off with my now very nice Dad and headed for a better life.
