2. Don't Diss Me. You'll Be Sorry

Next thing I knew, I was walking to school. It was a rainy day, so most kids had a ride from their parents. Not me. My dad has a car, but he never uses it. So I was stuck walking in the rain while the cars pass by. A school bus rode past, spashing water on me from a puddle. Don’t be surprised, this happens to me everyday. It happens so often that the people in my school started calling me ‘fish’.

I was late for class since I stopped to try to wring out my sopping wet clothes. I tried and failed, with a few wasted minutes. So there I was, standing in the doorway of my Science class dripping water all over the floor. The class laughed. (Surprise, surprise). I took my seat, ready for a miserable day.

I tried to pay attention in class, I really did. But with kids hissing in my ear: “Fish! Fish!” its sorta hard to stay focused. Stacie Shoeman is in my math class, and unfortunately is seated next to me (curtsey of my math teacher).
“What happened to you, Fish?” she whispered in my ear.

“I got splashed by a school bus.” I said, wondering If I should have answered her at all.

“No,” Stacie snapped, “I mean, why are you like that?”

“Like what?”I asked.
“Like… yourself, “Stacie said,” Oh, I know! Maybe it was how you are raised. Where is your mother, fish? Ran back to the water where she belonged?”

Insults about me I can handle. Insults about my house I can handle. Insults about my dad, are passed. But insults about my mother… oh boy.

I gripped my pencil to keep my fists from punch Miss Popular, Stacie Shoeman. (No kidding, she really was voted Miss Popular last year) But I wouldn’t let her have the satisfaction that she bothered me. I faced away from her. And then, she screamed.
