4. chapter 4: The note
I pull on my sweatpants with the words "Lukes" down the leg. I put my tiedye softball shirt, from when I was younger. How do I even fit in these anymore? "I'm going to school" I call to my mother. She runs up to me and kisses my forehead. "Becareful, and don't listen to their crap" She says. I don't understand her, she knows about the bulling but she does nothing about it. I shut the door behind me and walk into the cold air.
I rub my arm for warmth as I walk towards the school. The university is walking distance. I can see it from the treehouse in my backyard. I walk into the school and everyone turns to me. I hear a few mutters and snickers. I ignore it and walk to my first class. A crumbled up paper darts at my face. Probably the usual hate letter. I sigh and shove it in my math book. I pick up my math supplies and walk to class. I place my things down at my desk. I walk back out into the crowded hall and walk towards Ron. "Hey Ron!" I smile widely. "Hey Frankie!" He says placing his arm around my shoulder. Ron's friend, Corbin looks at me and says "Hi Frankie" Facetisously. He walks away quickly. "Sorry for him" Ron sighs. The bell rings instantly and I run to class. I sit my desk in the back. I open the crumpled paper and read it.
I know your little secret. No more hiding it! Leave Ron alone and never go to anything social again. Not like you do anyways... Trust me Frankie, your secret will be safe with me, unless you break the deal....
This chapter may seem boring, but it will be important soon enough!!:)
