Why?? Why?? Why?? Why can't you do this? The science worksheet was implanted in my head. My friend taunted me with every wrong answer, and for the correct ones, said nothing. I am passing science with a low "A." The rest of the class, with high "A's." "I can do this!!!" I thought to myself. Deep down, I knew I had the ability to finish the paper, but my friend held me back. The frustration rose. I felt my face grow hotter, hotter, every second.
I was heartbroken at the fact that my friend didn't think I was smart enough. I knew I had the ability, but did she?? NO!!! She didn't even care! My voice became cross when I talked to her. I couldn't take the instruction anymore! What was I supposed to do?? I've already told her to stop! What was I supposed to do?? She couldn't NOT be my friend! I was torn between ignoring her and continuing to feel like a stick. What was I supposed to do??
She's only in my Science class. Only one period to not do work for myself. RING!!! Yes!!! Freedom! Yes!!! Independence! My other six classes I get to do my own work, get my own grade, and pass my own tests. Freedom...sweet freedom.
