Two perspectives of the same story.

I walk down the hall, holding my books close to me, in an attempt to stop people from hitting them out of my hands. 'two more weeks, then your out of this school,' I think to myself as I walk to Drama. "Hey stupid!" I recognize the voice to be Tara, my main tormenter. I walk a bit faster, wanting to get further into the mass of people and away from them. Then her boyfriend, Vick, calls out to me "Fatty, stop walking or you'll regret it." I stop walking. They mean business. They will hurt me, and there's nothing I can do about it. I don't have a strong boyfriend, or any friends that go to this school. "Turn around Fatty." I slowly turn around and face them. "That's better. Now why were you in such a hurry? Little nerd want to get to class?" I nod, and look down at the ground, avoiding their eyes. I don't want to let them know that I am lying. I just wanted to get to Drama to rehearse, and that it is the only place that I feel like I can be myself without having everyone judge me. Vick grabs my chin, and tips it upwards. "Face me, I like seeing torment in the eyes of ugly girls like you. Now why don't you tell us the real reason that you were hurrying to that class. You don't look like a nerd-bird." "I-I..." "Well?" Tara glares at me. I find my voice and speak up, loud and clear. "Because it's the only place that I fell like I won't be picked on because I'm different, and I know for a fact that most everyone there won't judge me, not because their nerds like me, but because they've been bullied to, and personally, I'm sick of this!" By the end of my little speech, a small crowd had gathered, mostly consisting of my drama friends. I watched as something in Tara's eyes changed, and she slowly took a step towards me, then pulled back her arm getting ready to punch me.

Macy-

"Hey stupid!" Tara, my best friend said to Acacia, the loner of the class. Acacia walked a bit faster, and I don't think that anyone but me and my acute eyes noticed the small change in speed. I had always felt bad for the poor girl. Stuff was happening with her family, and I don't think that she has enough money for designer clothes' like the rest of the class does. "Fatty, stop walking or you'll regret it." Vick, Tara's boyfriend said, as he looked back at the rest of us, a smug grin on his face. I've never really liked Vick, he has always bullied me for being a bit bigger than the other girls. Acacia stopped walking and stood completely still, despite probably being scared. "Turn around, Fatty." Vick says, as Acacia turns around and looks at the floor "That's better. Now why were you in such a hurry? Little nerd want to get to class?" Acacia nods, still looking at the white checkered floor of the hallway. I want to stand up for the girl, but I know that I will lose my reputation, and my best friend if I say something. I watch as Vick grabs her chin, and tips it upwards, toward his face. "Face me, I like seeing torment in the eyes of ugly girls like you. Now why don't you tell us the real reason that you were hurrying to that class. You don't look like a nerd-bird." My heart wrenches for the Acacia, and I fight off the urge to slap Vick's hand away from her face, but I stay silent, and look at the suddenly interesting floorboards. Acacia stutters "I-I..." Tara looks back at me before snapping "Well?" Acacia backs away from Vick, and glares him in the eye, before turning to Tara. "Because it's the only place that I fell like I won't be picked on because I'm different, and I know for a fact that most everyone there won't judge me, not because their nerds like me, but because they've been bullied too, and personally, I'm sick of this!" I smile, thanking the stars that she finally found her voice, and praying that it doesn't earn her a bruise or a cut on her pretty, pale face. Tara's shoulders twitch slightly, and I can see the mental struggle of her 'do I hit her, don't I hit her'. She makes up her mind, and steps forward, slightly, so that she is in front or Acacia. For a second, I think she is going to hug Acacia, but then she pulls back for a punch...
