The Kimmel Center belches
the mob of concert goers
on to South Broad Street.  

Maude and Mabel
cross the street
to the high-rise car park.  

As they climb the stairs
to the second level,
they find a teen-aged boy
laying in the stair well.  

He’s sound asleep.  

Mabel tries to shake him,
to wake him up,
get him out of the way.  

He won’t move.  
He just stares at them.  
He seems frightened.  

They step over him.  

When they get to their car
Maude calls 911,
and reports a sleeping child.

I don't understand.  I thought Bones was with Flicka and the Cherubim and Seraphim?

Thanks dear Graeshine2006,

I’m very pleased that my “Bones” stories are working for you in that way.

Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks dear OwlSA,

Yes, Bones is with Flicka and the Cherubim and Seraphim.

However, I always write my stories rather scatter-shot.  Then when I get enough together, I combine them into a longer piece in the proper order.

It comes from me being scatter brained.

Love Bobby

From what I know of Bones, perhaps he didn`t have a decent place to sleep and he ended up in such a strange place.
