I was walking down the hall and going to my looker like I usually do. I opened my locker and started getting my books. While I was grabbing my books someone threw a football at the back of my head.
I ignored it and went back to doing my own thing. "Hey Einstein" I was turned around and got punched on the face. I fell on the ground and my glasses fell off. By the sound of it, it was Rowan. He was Varsity of the football team wearing a football jacket, well of them do. He was stupid but kinda handsome, would I date him if you ask my answer would be yes because I find the freckles on his cheeks cute. He's a ginger with brown eyes.
"Are you deaf or something" he grabbed my sweater and pushed me against the lockers. I looked at him, motionless like I always was. I didn't feel anything to be honest, I got used to this lifestyle. Everyday getting beaten up by people who don't get me, no one standing up to help me because they don't want to be treated the same way as I am, no one comforting me because I was an outcast, even the teachers.
Rowan smiled "I really like the face your making right" he pointed. "It really resembles who you are, you're nothing. No one in this school will remember who you are or maybe right now, they won't even face you. You know why, like I said you're nothing" he came close to my ear and whispered "You don't deserve to be in this world". He spat on my face and put me down.
For an idiot he was right about something. I didn't deserve to be alive, no one cared for me or even talked to me. So what's the point of me living any way. This isn't the first time I had this question, in fact it was common for me to think about this. But yet here I am still here on the ground walking.
I wiped the spit on my face and went to the bathroom. I removed my glasses and put it on the counter. There In the mirror I saw the same boy with black short hair and ocean eyes lifeless as always. I washed my face and got out of the bathroom. There I was bumped by the principal Michael Orten with His son Daniel Orten. Both of them were blonde and we all have ocean eyes. Principal Orten, also known as rich person running the school and being kind and trying to get to know the students. He's the only person I know that cares for his students, not that I know him but, every time I go to his office because of Rowan and his son, I don't tell him anything, I don't want him to be mad at his for hurting me (not that I care) but it just doesn't seem right. At least he doesn't force me to talk or anything.
Daniel Orten, also know as Rowan's apprentice or Rowan's Protege. So whatever Rowan does to me, he does to. But I don't care.
"Sean, why are you still here, the second bell is about to ring. You should be in class by now" Principal Michael told me. "I'm sorry sir, it won't happen again" by that I walked of and left.
I walked inside my class and sat at the window seat. I looked outside to see how beautiful the day was, it's the only thing I find magnificent sometimes.
And there I looked and saw my classmate, Scott Raven. His friends are the two douches that beat me up, but if you ask he just watches. He doesn't join them to beat me up, he just sometimes watches or tell them if they're going to far. He's the captain of the football team, and like the captain he's also the most popular guy in school. You know the drill, girls want him guys wanna be him all that shit.
The second bell rang and he made it in time for class. I was looking outside till the teacher called my name "Sean Mason" "Here" I raised my hand. "Scott Raven" "Here" he said behind me. "Okay class, get your textbook and highlighter, I'll help you review for the quiz tomorrow so you better follow my instructions".
I dig into my bag and grabbed my materials and suddenly. "Shit" he said behind me, I looked behind me and Scott was asking others for help. By then he looked at me "Do you have a highlighter" he asked. I grabbed my orange highlighter and gave it to him. "Thanks" he whispered and I went back to doing my things. "Nice weather were having today" he said to me but I ignored.
By the time class ended it was recess. I opened my lunch box and just grabbed an apple and save the chicken for later. While I was eating my apple and drinking my juice, someone threw a carton of chocolate milk on my face. I looked at who threw it, and it was really no surprise. Rowan and his gang.
I got from my seat and went to the bathroom "Is Einstein gonna cry" he made crying noises. But all I did was ignore him and walked. "Hey Einstein" he said, I stopped and looked behind "I'm gonna break you one day" he said. He walked up to me "One day, you'll cry so hard in front of us, that we'll laugh at that face that you're gonna make" he pointed.
I just turned and continued walking and went to the bathroom. While I was walking I saw principal Michael, "Sean, what happened to you". "Nothing sir I just spilled milk on me" I faked a smile, "On the side of your face" he pointed. "It was a small roughhousing" I said. "I'm not gonna force you to tell the truth but at least tell me so I can help-" "It's okay sir, I'm fine" I continued walking and went to the bathroom. There I cleaned myself.
