A boy who has been one of my worst tormentors both throughout Middle and High School comes into the lunch room. My stomach squeezes with fear. Usually Frank and his buddies leave campus for lunch. When they stay there’s a purpose, and that purpose is usually me. I cringed as I think of the times I’ve been forced to either dump my prized lunch because of something he spit or dropped into my food (once it was a small brown nugget of dog poop), or to try to eat around it. He takes great joy in my humiliation and I guess eventually he would start to miss my burning shame.

Another first as I sneak quietly past her— not that she’s sleeping but that I ignore my chores for the moment, going up the stairs. I walk into the bathroom, locking the door behind me.

Then it returns full force, mockery in every line. “Here, freak,” she oozes, handing a slip of paper my way, then jerking it back. ” She laughs cruelly, looking at Henry, expecting him to join in the joke. I can’t see his face because he’s turned slightly away from me toward her—that and the fact that I am now ducking my head, trying to hide my face but also trying to see his reaction.
