"Ella, stop talking and get back to work" snappes my second period math teacher, Mr. Gunther after the third time of saying so.<br> "God he's such an idiot" complained Alexandira, my best friend "how does he not get the fact that this is so important"<br> "Well according to my mother it's not either" I repy "she doesn't care about what I think or she would have listened to the words I actually spoke".<br> "I really wish I could go with you" Alex whispers after Mr. Gunther gives us a look "ninth grade really sucks, he<_>ll being 15 sucks".<br> "I know right, but still anything could be better that this fate" I whisper back.<br> There was the sound of a gasping snort as Evella, the Queen of the Barbies tried to keep her laughter in along with her little squad of brain sharers, Aleena and Haley.<br> "Well wherever you go you'll be a freak just like you are here" hissed Evella.<br> I balled up my fistes under my desk and tried to calm my sudden burst of anger. I wanted to punch her so hard that she gasps and chokes on her own saliva as i break her nose. Where is all this anger coming from, the rational voice inside my head asks, but I am too da<_<mn aangry to care. It's a really good thing I am good at hiding my feelings because the plan that I have, nobody would like and everyone would try to stop me.<p> ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ <p> The second period bell rings and I wait for Alex to leave with the reasurance that I will catch up and also for Evella to leave the room. As Evella is stepping out into the hallway I say "that's a really hidious giggle you've got there Evella". She whirls around to face my with an equally as hidious look on her face, it's a wonder she's so popular. <br> "What did you just sa--" <br> SMACK! CRUNCH! <br> For an instant there was bliss. No pain, all quiet, slow motion. And the look on Evella's face, bloody and shock mixed with pain. The drug-like simtoms for the victory coarsed through my vains. But just as quickly as it came everythinf was back to normal and it was chaos<br> The people that loved Evella ran to help her, shooting me nasty looks but the people who she had sh<_>it on laughted along with me. My victory did'nt last long because my english teacher Mrs. Engale pushed her way through the crowd to me, furious. <br> "Ms. Gale you may march yourself up to the Office young lady" she hissed " go now or someone will escort you".<br> When I got there the secritary gave me a disaprooving frown and pointed me down the hall to Mr. Arch's office, the vice principle. As I walked down the hallway I passed the nurses office and i stop to hear the raised voices on the other side of the door.<br> "She j-just puched m-me for n-no reason" wailed Evella, her voice muffed by the tissue that was probibly at her nose.<br> "Yeah I saw it" said the voice that sounded like Aleena. I heard a whimper and another sound that was too quiet to hear. I push away from the door, I was disgisted and I had heard enough. <br> I knock on the door of Mr. Arch's office. "Come in" says a gruff male voice. "Close the door behind you" and I click the door shut.<br> "I know why your here but I would like to hear it from you before I decide your punishment" says Mr. Ash.<br> I tell him the story and as it goes on he has to compose his face to hide some sort of emotion. Amusement!? But why? Before I get the chanve to ponder he gets to the point.<br> "You are suspended for the rest of the week" <br> Well he<_>ll.
