Kelli, Fourth Grade:
I’m the third girl in my family and there are two boys, so someone is forever teasing me and I never get anything new to wear – this year I had to wear a four year old Care Bears t-shirt to school the first day, but nobody said anything about it; I think they remember last year, when that little squirt Steve got a taste of my fist in his smart ass mouth. This year Robin is the prettiest girl in class - her clothes are always nice and her mom braids her hair real cute. So, while she walking back to her desk and looking down at the paper she picked up from the teacher, I slid my foot out into the aisle - and when she tripped over it she went down real hard, bruising her knees something awful on the dingy tile floor. She wouldn’t stop sniveling and the teacher got real angry and blamed Susan, who sits in front of me, because she’s always getting in trouble. Susan cried and swore she didn’t do it, but none of the kids sitting at the desks around us told on me - they wouldn't even look at me. That was very smart of them.
