1. The Last Straw
Niall, Louis, Liam, and Zayn had shoved me into my locker many times before, but this was the last time. I had severe Claustrophobia and I was trying to remain calm in the tiny space. I banged on the door many times and no one came to my rescue, I had almost given up until I heard the familiar shoe clinks walking down the hallway. "Valerie?" I asked, trying to sound manly but it coming out in a whine. "Marcel?" The shoe clinks came closer to my locker, by now she had known my combination, after having to save me so many times. I was a little embarrassed as she helped me out, my lunch and a few notebooks falling out as I exited the tiny space. She gave me a light hug and I only held onto her for a minute. "Thanks Valerie..." I looked down. Our friendship was supposed to be forbidden, she dated Louis Tomlinson, one of the pricks who locked me in the locker. "Are you okay?" She looked me over. " 'm fine. I'll talk to you tonight..." I quickly grabbed the books off the floor and made my way down the large and bright hallway.
I walked in to my classroom, I looked over at the pricks in the back of the class who were snickering at me. I wanted to act on my anger and rage, but I knew it wasn't good. I went to take my normal seat in the front, but was now taken, so now I had to go sit in the back. I took a seat next to Louis and Zayn. During the rest of the class, they threw paper balls at me with hateful words carved into them by a pencil too hard. Finally the bell rang and I got up, pushing myself in front of everyone. I went to my locker and left it open only a little so I could slip my books in and take my lunch out. Instead of facing the dangers of the cafeteria, I went into the disabled bathroom. I locked myself in and sat on the floor, eating my lunch. My lunch was interrupted though when I heard the shoe clicking approach the door. Two knocks. "Marcel?" The small voice asked. I didn't dare answer, I was too embarrassed from earlier. "I know you're in there. Come on..Don't let Louis and his friends bother you." A note slipped under the door and the clicking faded down the hallway. I made sure to wait until the clicking was faint before i went for the note. It was a little insider we shared, songs lyrics we could relate to, all over the page in colorful markers. Then signed ~Valeriexo. I laid back against the cold tile wall as I read, a couple making me smile.
After I heard the bell ring, I made my way back to my locker. I went after the hallways were empty, I grabbed my books and when I got in I was once again tardy for Physics. I was always tardy because that's when the pricks were at their worst, beating the hell out of me. I got a lecture in front of the class for approximately twenty minutes. I just wanted to hide in my room and draw, the only thing I was actually decent at that they would leave me alone about.
