Early this semester, a young boy with a jagged scar on his forehead was found living underneath the staircase in a storage closet opposite the flag room in the Memorial Student Center.
Freshman Psychology major, Jon Beasley, discovered the young boy after a late night of studying in the MSC. Beasley said, “It’s pretty rare for me to be on campus this late, but I’m really glad that I was. Who knows how long this kid would have gone unnoticed?”
Beasley found the boy when he heard a loud crashing sound come from the Panda Express kitchen. Upon investigating, Beasley discovered the boy eating orange chicken from leftover boxes he had found in the refrigerator. Beasley then befriended the boy, whose name he learned to be Larry Totter.
Beasley later learned that Totter is an orphan— his parents died in a mysterious murder when Totter was only a baby. Totter says his uncle is a professor at Texas A&M but didn’t want the boy living in his house, so he refurbished an unused storage closet into a makeshift bedroom for the boy. Totter did not want to reveal his uncle’s identity due to undisclosed reasons.
“Larry is an interesting kid, he’s a little strange honestly, there’s something quite odd but strangely magnificent about him. I can’t quite put my finger on it,” Beasley told The Mugdown in a recent interview.
Totter’s origin is unknown, but he recently found out that he would be attending a special institution for children like himself. When we asked Beasley what the school was, he had no answer for us as Totter only explained it as a “foreign and small school.”
We followed up with Beasley a few days ago to get an update on Totter, as he had been at his new school for a few weeks now. Beasley says Totter is doing incredibly well and loves his new school and is a popular guy there. Apparently, his parents were alumni and are very well known at his school, and he is living in some sort of legacy. Beasley even told us that many refer to Totter as the “chosen one.”
Unsure as to what the “chosen one” really meant, we reached out to Astrology professor, Rybill Frelawney, who has a rather large grasp on all things storybook sounding. Frelawney is an interesting character, but was very knowledgeable in the subject and had an ominous tone when discussing it with us.
When our correspondent told Frelawney about Totter, she expressed her shock to us. “There have been many folk tales about a great evil coming, and that a special hero would emerge,” said Frelawney.
After a pause, Frelawney continued in a prophetic tone. “There will come a day when the boy will be tested, when the evil being returns. One must die so that the other may live, this is a crucial matter. I have no time for more questions,” said Frelawney as she rushed us out of her office quickly and told us to beware for this boy was destined for great things.
It all seemed very convincing, maybe one day we will find out more about Larry Totter, but for now— like all of our issues— we will ignore them for as long as we can.
