THE BOY WHO CRIED JUICE (Part One)

Part 1

Many of you have heard the tale of the poor boy who cried wolf. This tale is a similar tale in name. For it is about a boy...

who cried...

juice.

Now while the titles are awfully similar, these stories are actually nothing alike.

Poor little Jugo is a boy of similar stature to most other boys his age. From a first glance you would have no idea how especially troubled this young boy is. Jugo was sweet all the way down to his core, so sweet in fact, that every time he cried, he cried juice.

Now you may be thinking "what's so troublesome about crying juice?" and I thought the same when I first heard about poor Jugo. Imagine every time you felt an ounce of sadness, an ounce of juice would flow from your eyes. Human eyes are not meant to secrete juice so, every time he cried it was not only excruciatingly painful, but it would make him cry more. A terrible cycle of pain and sorrow.

Jugo's parents had a rough time with him as a child, it was always hard to get him to stop crying once he started. Growing up, the local kids would always bully poor little Jugo saying things like:

"Let's squeeze some more tears out of the juice boy!"

"You're not a tough boy! You're just a little sweetie!"

Some of the more cruel and sociopathic children would say stuff like:

"LET'S PEEL HIM AND SEE IF HE'S SWEET DOWN TO HIS CORE!"

Luckily for Jugo those kids got sent away so he didn't actually have to deal with that, but nonetheless. He was bullied. And it sucked.
