Bob the Maintenance Man is a character created by Megan. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Stone Maiden".


Bob is construction and maintenance worker. He is a tall intimidating man. He is also rude, short-tempered and impatient. During the events of the story, the city decided to balance their budget. Therefore they hired him and his crew to separate a statue. Then to have it sold to a park in another city. The statue selected was The Stone Maiden Statue. Therefore he carefully separated the boy statue away from the girl statue. The artist who sculpted and donated the statue to the park was: Vivian White. She had a signed contract to always keep the statue intact. She was not informed about any of this happening. The city either ignored her contract or were not aware of it.

The statue was based on a story from ancient Greece. The story was about: Two young lovers, who were being torn apart because their families didn't approve of their relationship. The girl found a magic potion that could turn them both into stone. Therefore, they decided that since their love was so strong, they decided to spend eternity together as statues. Instead of spending the rest of their lives apart.

Once he separated the boy statue away from the girl statue the legend came to life. Therefore the vase that the girl statue held began to drip real water. However, this water was meant to turn the next person who drank it into stone. Therefore the girl would once again have a mate and no longer be lonely.

Soon afterwards, a teenager named: Kevin Tyler who just broke up with his girlfriend: Julie Hart, stumbled upon the girl statue. Kevin drank some water to quench his thirst. Then it instantly turned him into stone.

A self-employed park recyclist named Henry aka The Protector eye-witnessed this happening. After Henry finally convinced Julie that he was telling her the truth they informed Vivian White. Vivian was furious that half of the statue she donated had been sold without her consent. Henry deduced that if they returned the mate to the maiden, then the spell would be broken.

Henry, Julie and Vivian rushed down to the park's head office. They tried to convince him not to send the boy statue away. He very rude and not persuaded. He refused to listen to Vivian. She explained that her contract stated that she donated a full statue, not a half statue. So it could not be split up and sold without her consent and approval. He still didn't listen to them. Therefore he was just about to send it away in a truck. Then Henry stole his truck and drove it back to the clearing.

He followed them over to the clearing. Just as Henry prepared to put the statue back into place, he was furious. He demanded that they give it back, but they refused and proceeded to put it back. Then he threatened that he would just take it away again. Hearing this, Vivian showed him the full contract. She stated that it must stay or she would sue. Then Henry clicked the statue back into place, assuming that now the spell on Kevin would be broken.

Then they all ran over to where Kevin was. However, Kevin was still a statue. Then straight from her heart Julie confessed her love to Kevin. Julie told Kevin that she loved him. The Julie kissed Kevin and she pleaded for him to come back to her.

Then from love's true kiss, the statue of Kevin Tyler instantly transformed back to normal and he was just stunned. Afterwards the matter of keeping the statue together was resolved. So from then on he understood that it was to remain in one piece.
