The event that change how the way I think about other people completely
happened when I was only 11 years old. I believe it was the year 2006.
I was in boarding school at that time. A very tricky and popular kid I was. At least
that’s what all my friends thinks. I like to trick people into saying stuff they don’t want to
say. It’s kind of fun sometime. Anyway, the only reason that I am popular is because I’m
that captain of my school soccer team.
The story began when I was walking with my best friend to our 5th hour. We were
half way to our class when I saw my other group of friends. I stand there and tried to
listened to what they are talking about. I heard them talking about me. Not in a very good
way. I got really mad. I was about to run to the group but my best friend stops me. He
said “ don’t mine them they are stupid”.
After the after school bell rang. Me and my friend went back to our room. I threw
my backpack angrily at the wall. I can’t believe those people. How can they say stuff like
that about me? I didn’t even do anything to them! Sitting on my bed thinking while my
friend is doing his homework. In my mind. I said “ I don’t want to talk to those people
The next day. I didn’t do anything, I don’t feel like doing anything, so I just stay
in my room playing on my laptop. I send a message to my best friend asking him about
his day and other stuff. After a couple minute, he replied back to me saying that the
group wants him to join in. Madder then ever I scream out loud.
The next day I told the group that I know what was going on and that we are no
longer friend. I said “ I don’t need you guys”, then I walked away with my friend. They
start teasing me after that.
Days and days have past and the group’s still teasing me. I was furious. My mine
felt like it was burning in a fire. I can’t take it anymore. I don’t know what to do. Should
I just fight with that group? or should I just stay calm and let them teas me? My friend
walked over to me. He saw and he knew I was in pain. He said for me to stay calm, tell a
teacher or some adult. That’s when I know that he cares about how I feel.
During the night, after a week of being teased I was laying on my bed and
thinking about those people and how much I hate them. I thought about what my friend
have said and it calms me down. I sat there for another hour when a phrase pop in to my
E2?? You only need one friend, the one that cares about you and will always be there
for you”. I only need one good friend.
