After English class ended, I went to my locker, which I was sharing. I
wonder who it was?
I opened up the locker, and all kinds of stuff came falling out. "Oh, no!"
Then, I saw this beautiful girl come toward me and went to my locker.
"Is this your locker?" I asked.
"Yeah. I'm sharing with someone." She replied.
"It's my locker, too."
"Nice to meet you. I'm Natalie. You are?"
"Lenny Shouse." I replied. "Nice to meet you too."
"Well, gotta get to my class."
"See ya!" I waved.
After she had left, I started to clean up the mess on the floor. I thought
about Natalie. She was so beautiful and nice. I wonder if----
Someone had broke into my thoughts. "Hey!"
"Who are you?" I asked.
"Bryan. Could I ask you for your last name?"
"Shouse rhymes with mouse. So, I'll call you, Mouse."
"Okay, why did you walk up to me?" I asked.
"You're the mouse. I'm the trap. This is Mouse Trap."
I just stood there with saying a word. I knew what Mouse Trap meant. It was
going to be a fight.
A few seconds later, Bryan spoke, "So, Mouse, I heard that you were hanging
around my girlfriend."
"No. Where did you hear that?" I asked.
"Damn! Mouse! You're so dumb!" he got a temper.
"Who's your girlfriend?" I asked.
"Natalie!" he yelled.
"We're just locker mates!" My voice rose. "Look, I do not want to start a
fight, so I'm sorry if I did anything to harm you." My voice went normal.
Bryan walked toward me, trapping me in front of the lockers. "You're not so
tough, are ya?"
I just didn't say anything. A crowd formed around cheering, "Fight, fight!
As Bryan raised his fist, I covered my face.
"Are you ready for this?" he yelled.
"I-I-I---" I was about to reply until someone said loudly, "Okay, break it
up! Come on people get to class!" all people got to class.
That someone walked to Bryan and I.
"So, anyone of you want to explain what's the problem here?"
"Uh---uh, nothing." Bryan said with a soft chuckle.
"Oh, don't give me that crap! Bryan Turk, you were picking on this student.
Weren't you?" they said. "By the way, who are you?" they asked me.
"Lenny Shouse." I replied.
"Lenny, you go to class. Bryan, you come with me. We're gonna have a little
Bryan whispered in my ear, "This isn't over! We're gonna finish after
school, out on the playground."
"Bryan!" They pulled him by the ear.
I walked off to my next class. I thought about after school. My stomach was
in knots. Well, I'm glad that I'd got my license one month ago. I could
drive my way outta here after school. But if I that, then Bryan would think
I'm a scared loser. I just don't know what to do? I'm so confused.
