...Something Bad Will Happen

Step.
Step.
Step.
Don’t stop.
Don’t look up.
No eye contact.
Step.
Step.
Step.
Weave in and out.
Don’t become noticeable.
Don’t get in the way.
Step.
Step.
Step.
Enter the room.
Sit down.
Look up.
Breathe.
Breathe.
Breathe.
Stay quiet.
Draw no attention to yourself.
Hope no one cares.
Tick. Tock.
Tick. Tock.
Tick. Tock.
Twenty minutes left.
Ten.
One.
Step.
Step.
Step.
Repeat this.
Eight more times.
Then go home.
Sleep.
Sleep.
Sleep.
Buzzzz
Buzzzz
Buzzzz
Another school day.
Don’t change the routine.
Or else...
Step.
Step.
Step.
