It was a great day for a small boy during school until he started having a problem. He was just sitting under a tree doing nothing but everyone could see him because if his pale skin. It looked like he was sleeping and that he was enjoying his sleep until the school bully come up to him. "Hey! Wake up shrimp!" He said in a loud voice waking the boy up. When he opened his light blue eyes he was immediately scared and so he got up by the tree shaking in fear. However no matter how scared he was the bully hit him really hard causing the boy to cry.
"Hey shrimp. Stop crying." Is what the bully said. He punched the boy repeatedly causing him to cry much harder. He was scared and was seriously shaking with fear. The bully didn't care because he was older and bigger than him and he really enjoyed hurting him. He continued to hit and punch the boy while laughing at his pain and the boy tried to protect himself but it didn't work to well. He continued to he hurt and he was getting many injuries.
Then when he thought no one would ever help him the beating stopped. He wasn't able to see why because he was still so scared that he still wanted to protect himself. However after a listening to the beatings he finally opened his eyes and looked and to his surprise there was another boy standing in front of him protection him. His arms where held out and he was facing the bully but not once did he fight back. The little boy wanted to cry for him and he did but before he could start really crying a teacher saw what was happening and stopped the fighting. She took the bully away and then another teacher came over and asked if both boys where OK. They both said they were fine and so the teacher left. Once the teacher was gone the boy asked the little one if he was fine but that boy was so scared that he didn't answer. He was aware that he helped him but he didn't know if he was a friend. The boy looked at him with dark brown eyes and asked again if he was fine. The boy looked straight at him and saw that he was also tall and noticed how much he was hurt. His blue shorts and black shirt was torn a bit and his tan skin had bruises everywhere but still he didn't want to answer because he was so scared.
He sat there shaking and really wanting to run away but his fear kept him still. The taller kid noticed this and asked "are you hurt? Do I need to go and get a teacher?" He seemed kind and reached out his hand to help him up but he didn't take it instead he started to shake more and when the boy was about to talk again the little boy got up and ran away. The taller boy really couldn't believe that that happened but he yelled "hey wait!" but it didn't work the boy continued to run until he made it to the back of the school.
The school was not very big it was maybe big enough to hold about 300 students but no more. It was a one story building that had a big forest surrounding it. This decide was not very good so every teacher really disagreed with it but there were a few fences around the playground and there were a few teachers watching the back to make sure every child was save. But besides the weird location it was a very simple school.
The taller boy was in the back of the school and he was surprised about two things. One there were not teachers around and two that this little guy was really good at hiding.
"Wow he must be the king in hide-and-seek." he joked while looking. But while he was not joking with himself he was worrying about the little boy.
After awhile he started to wonder if he left the school grounds but he really didn't want to think of that possibility. Eventually he yelled "hey! Please come out! I swear I won't hurt you I just want to talk!" after that he heard a crack from behind him and when he turned around he finally spotted the little boy hiding behind a tree. He was so relieved that he signed but after that he ran to him saying "finally found you. You know you are not easy to find." but before he could make it to him the boy tried to run away again. The taller boy then ran really fast and was able to catch him this time.
"Hey I won't hurt you so please stop running. I swear I just want to talk." He said almost pleading. The boy looked at him still crying and held out his pinky.
"Is this a pinky promise?" The taller boy asked. After he saw that they boy was serious, or at least as serious as a crying boy can get, he took the pinky. "I swear I will never hurt you in anyway." Now the boy was calm again. Still had tears in his eyes but he was calmer.
"OK so before we start we need to get out of here." The taller boy said letting go of the boy and starting to walk away.
It didn't take long for the boy to realize that the little boy wasn't following him. He just stood there not doing anything. "Come on." He said waving to the other boy to come but still he didn't move.
The taller boy really wanted to leave so he went up to the boy and grabbed his hand again. This startled the little boy so were he was about to cry again. The taller boy gentle pulled the boy but still he did not move. "come on." The taller boy said while pulling harder. Now the little boy was crying and when he was about to start moving he sat down preventing the taller boy from moving him without dragging him.
The boy quickly gave up. "Fine. You win we will stay here. I just hope you're prepared for trouble." The boy looked at him again and nodded.
"OK first off what is your name. My name is Dave." The boy said while sitting down next to him. The boy didn't answer. "Come on now. I promised I wouldn't hurt you so please tell me."
It took awhile but finally the boy whispered something. "What did you say?" Dave said because it was to quiet tto hear. "You need to speak a bit louder."
Then again he whispered but this time he could hear it. "Ira."
"So your name is Ira. Well it's nice to finally meet you." He said pulling out his hand to shake but Ira didn't take it instead he kind of backed away. At first Dave didn't know what this was but then he realized "you're shy aren't you?" Ira blushed and Dave smile "well it can't be helped right now so oh well..."
Dave was now at a loss of words. He really didn't know what to say or how to act right now. He never was one to begin a conversation but he really wanted talk to this boy but seriously his didn't know what to say. He was even worried he might say something wrong to make the boy scared of him or make him cry again but after a few minutes of worrying he heard "why."
He looked at Ira "what did you say?"
Ira was still quiet and shaking but he was able to say "why did you help me and follow me?"
"I did because I wanted to." Dave said bluntly.
"But why?" Ira said looking like he was about to cry.
"Well..." He paused and thought for minute. "...I guess it was because I wanted to be your friend. I always see you by yourself and being made fun of so I wanted to try and be your friend. I hate it when people are made fun of and I think everyone deserves a friend so I wanted to be yours. I hope that makes sense." He said blushing a bit.
Ira was seriously in shock but then he started to cry again. "Hey now why are you crying?" Dave asked really hoping he didn't say something wrong.
"Nothing. It's just I am really happy but I am scared too." He said trying to wipe away his own tears.
"Why are you scared?" Dave asked really curiously.
"I am scared because..." he paused to sniffle "...what if you get bullied. I don't want that to happen." He said crying harder.
"Hey don't worry. I would much rather have a good friend who makes fun of know one than a best friend who makes fun of many. So in short as like as you don't make fun of anyone I will be friends with you."
Ira looked at him with tearful eyes "Thank you."
Dave smile and got up. "Well I think recess ended some time ago so I can bet we are going to get it trouble." He said laughing.
"I am so sorry." Ira said crying.
"Hey just like you are willing to except the punishment I will too. So don't worry about it." He brought out his hand "well lets go."
This time Ira took the hand and nodded his head with a huge smile. Then they both ran off back to the play ground where many teachers and student were looking for them and once they got back they were indeed punished for running off but to them they didn't care cause now they have a friend.
