Revenge of Bill VBerg

Bill and I have had our differences this week. I feel like he's been carrying this grudge against me for several days now. While I was cleaning up after lunch he disappeared. The house was very quiet. I became concerned. "Where's Bill?" I thought. I assumed he must be in his room reading something from his extensive library. I checked but No, he wasn't there. Then I checked in my room. There was Bill with this ridiculously smug look on his face. He sabatoged my entire closet. "Bill!" I exclaimed, "Why would you do this to me?" I had utter disbelief and shock on my face. Bill looked sheepish at first, then regretful. Then he ran into his room, closed the door, and burst into tears. I looked over at Jester for some support. He looked up from his book, shrugged his shoulders, and kept reading.

"Jester, What's up with Bill?" I asked him, "He's been acting so strange lately." Jester just kept reading. I sighed and went back to the kitchen to finish cleaning up. I'd clean up the closet later.

Suddenly Jester emerged from the bedroom with purpose in his step and sporting his 'Peace Officer' shirt. "Oh boy, here we go," I thought. Don't ask me why, but Jester does this every time the peace around him is disturbed. He takes conflict pretty seriously as you can see. "I think I know what's wrong with Bill," He said confidently, "He's feeling threatened by all the homecomings this week. You've suddenly gained your 2 best friends back. Bill is feeling left out."

I thought about it for a bit. "But Bill knows that he's my#1. I mean, this has never been an issue before, has it?" I asked Jester. "No, it hasn't, but this kind of homecoming has never happened before either. 2 at once. He's been acting up because he craves your attention." Jester replied. "Well, I suppose you're right." I sighed. "I'd better go talk to him and make more of an effort for some Q.T. with Bill." "Hey, that's what I'm here for," said Jester, "just trying to keep the peace."
I quietly knocked on Bill's door. "yeah, come in," said Bill. I went in. His eyes looked a little puffy and his cheeks were rosey from crying. I just looked at him, then ran over to him and gave him a giant hug. He hugged me equally as hard. We were both crying by now. No words needed to be said. We both knew that we understood each other. " I love you, Bill" I said. "I love you too," he replied.

Aw, Bill, sorry if I caused any rifts between you and your mom. I know how sensitive you can be. Don't worry, either, because I know where I stand in your mom's heart. You'll always be #1.....and I'll always be her favorite.
