The Very Edge

Faye Rochals. She was a kid treated like an outsider. She was a bullied student at Dellmore High for Girls. By the time she gets into year 9, she thought she was normal. Finally the teen she hoped she'd become. But now she's on a bridge. Not an important place but right at the minute, it means everything.


2. The Dellmore Girls


Before I met Imogen, I was in a primary school that had 50 pupils max. I didn’t even belong there. For months my mum was looking for a placement for me but I was jinxed. The school I ended up going to was 7 miles from our raggedy, old house. They treated me like I was a cast-off. An outsider. A freak.

Eventually they let me into their community and I made friends. That was the best time of my life which is how it stayed by my liking. Because when I moved up to Dellmore High for Girls, my times of fun plummeted into a bottomless pit of pure, heartless bullies.

There was this one particular group of girls who harassed me. Especially in PE. Each one of them had the perfect figure and their ability to play sport was unimaginable. I was, on the other hand, what you’d call a ‘normal-sized’ version and the closest I can get to being athletic is bowling on the WII! That’s if I’d had a WII. Pretty funny because they were rich too.

Anyway, that’s why they bullied me. And it wasn’t even just words. They were dogs with bites. I would have scars and bruises on my stomach and legs. I guess it stopped me from cutting, though. It was everything. My weight. My physical capacities. Because I was completely alone. Did I mention that I was the only Leigh Primary girl there? Well that’s why I was such an easy target. But things started to get better when I met Imogen.
