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

ever again!”.

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

head.Proxy-Connection: keep-alive

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.
