Stay Strong

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name's Dawn. I have red hair. I'm a senior in a small highschool in Doncaster. I get the best grades in my class. The only living relative I have is an aunt, but we lost all communication years ago, so I live by myself. I have two best friends: Harry and Anna. Sadly, I'm bullied or ignored by everyone in the school except for those two. One boy specifically bullies me. Louis. Oddly enough, Harry and him are best friends and he and Anna are dating. The only reason I'm bullied is because they don't know me. I really am quite crazy, but I come across as shy. Most likely because I never talk in school. Even if a teacher calls on me. I just ignore them. I'm afraid of what people will say.


8. Texting

I woke up to my alarm clock beeping, like usual. Of course another day of school. I'm just holding onto the possibility that Louis won't bully me. But then again, I'll still have to deal with the rest of the school. I got dressed and walked to school. The first half of the day was normal. People bullied me, I did my classwork, and tried not to fall asleep during the boring lectures. But Louis didn't bully me. He didn't even look at me, which I guess is better than being abused by him.


At lunch I sat behind the same tree, and I heard foot steps coming towards me again. I looked beside me to see Louis. I eyed him expectantly waiting for him to speak. "Oh right, you don't talk. Okay sorry. So... hi," Louis said awkwardly. I laughed awkwardly and began debating how to respond to that. "Look, Dawn, if you don't talk, no one's going to talk to you," he said. I went to my notes and typed a message for him. It read, 'you're talking to me...'


"Well duh I am, but no one else will!" He said.



'I'm fine on my own, just go eat lunch with the other jerks.' I wrote back. He rolled his eyes.



"At least give me your number so we can talk after school," he said.



I typed 'You actually want to talk to me?' He shrugged. I took his phone out of his outstretched hand and put my number into it. I gave it back and returned to my lunch as Louis went back to eating.


I guess Louis has actually changed. It doesn't make any sense that he all of a sudden stops bullying me. Just because I'm his cousin doesn't stop me from being mean to me.


After school, I got a text from Louis.


Wanna hang out? -Louis


What the heck? He hated my guts then all of a sudden, he wants to hang out? Something's happening that I'm not aware of, and I'm not planning on finding out.


Sorry I'm busy... maybe later -Dawn


I'm sure I'm going to find out soon enough, whether I want to or not.
