I hurriedly get out my phone. I call the hospital "Hello? What is your emergency?" The lady on the phone says. "My teacher...athsma attack...I'm scared..." I reply. They come fast. They put my teacher on an ambulance and sent to the hospital. We run to tell Mr. Darwin. "Mr. D? Mrs. Plurr is in the hospital. I called. She had an athsma attack." I tell him. Kaelin Sanders, the quiet one in class was giving him all the details. Kaelin is always nice to me. I consider her a best friend. I wonder if she considers me one too. I'll ask later. We make it through a full day of school. "One last announcement!" Mrs. Jiles says. Shes the secretary. "Mrs. Plurr died today." She said. I think of those words over and over in my head...Mrs... Plurr...died...today. A tear falls out of my eye. I think all the girls are crying. Cashmere and I are gonna go to the hospital today. Her dad said it's the right thing to do. We enter room 120. We look at the dead body. So calm. So unafraid. So... sad. A tear falls out of my eye. We look at my dead teacher. But we descover under the covers, a hole in her body. One with a bullet stuck in it. There was a gun laying on the table.
