I was left here by the train tracks. Reasons were unknown to me. However, having survived a whole year makes me feel like this is my new home.

I’m the new tough guy around the place.

I was standing behind the tree watching her being bullied by some other kids. I made my way out of the tree. With saliva drooling from my mouth and a roar larger than my size I stood in front of them. They ran… away. I got to admit – it was fun. But no one messes around the place when I’m there.

Who am I, again?

I’m Toby – the guardian of the tracks.

    • I’ll let Toby know…he’ll be very happy. Thanks for enjoying and commenting on the story, Margaret.
      I liked the character’s name “Freedom Breeze” from your story – so much related to her action of seeking freedom (in her own way).
      Sorry for not being able to reply earlier.
