They called me Wild Boy

April 11, 2013

I appeared from the forest one day, no name, unkempt and unable to speak. Which was all part of the plan. The truth was less exciting, and far more likely to get me locked up. A teenage runaway, I’d turned to violent robbery to survive. They’ll find me out eventually.

    Intriguing, another one with a story outside the lines, the mind fills in Tarzan and Mowglie scenes. Then, the differentiating truth. Interesting that it comes mid way in this fifty words.

      This is actually based on a true story, about a young man they called Forest Boy. Real life stories interest me the most, as you may have noticed!
