Simon Birch Pov: Scene one
I'm so happy I have an amazing friend Joe he has always been their for me when no one else. He also believes in my dreams and his mom is like another mom to him because his parents don't treat him well. Joe has always been with me through thick and thin. Joe is not like the other kid's or the pastor he understands my feelings.
when I hit Joe's mom with a baseball by accident. I felt really bad and I didn't mean to,I had questioned my faith that day, but I knew I must trust him. I'm just glad Joe forgave me that day otherwise I don't think I would have a best friend. Joe's mom meant a lot to me she was like another mom and I'm glad I could experience that.
I was riding with Joe on the the next day, It was time to go home. Joe was shocked and unhappy with the pastor finding out that it was is real dad so he didn't talk and I was not feeling well so I didn't also. Most people were silent,I wish we all were that day because the bus driver had looked at us and told us to shush without knowing that when he turned around a deer would be waiting. We turned left and right and bounced,it was like a roller coaster to your death. We ended up in the water no body was quiet now, everyone was yelling crying Joe was trying to get their attention, but no one would listen. I stood up and told everyone that each and every one of them were going to get out and be the same. Even if it meant me dying. Luckily everyone got out including me,but I knew I wasn't going to make it much longer.
