Alone all this time and at last at ease for the rest of his life.

8: My Character: | The character that I made up was "Kid". His real name is Stephan Johnson, but that doesn't get revealed in the story. Hes more of the strong, silent type which helps his character for he helps Bud get aboard the train in the scene after he washes the dishes. Him and Bugs would make it aboard, but Bugs would get caught and he would meet Lefty Lewis on the train instead of at the road-side.
