18x365: Rene

In grade three I met Rene. He was a year older than me and really big for his age, twice my size, not that that has ever been hard. He said he was from Honduras, and I vaguely remember looking it up on a map to see what he meant by that. He could always be found outside, playing basketball.

In grade four Rene became convinced that I had magical, telekinetic powers because I could stack and shelve things like no other. Somehow I was the only person who was able to do it without making them fall down.

In grade five Rene moved away.
