He walked on the pavement eyes fixed on the ground. He didn't dare to look up, for fear of meeting the tantalizing glares the other kids shot him. He tried to feel unobtrusive, tried to walk as inconspicuously as possible.
Suddenly, he couldn't take it anymore. He was tired of being tormented for being the fat kid. His head shot up, "I AM NOT FAT!!!" he roared.
The kids didn't snicker, in fact they looked startled. He swallowed, his sudden bout of confidence suddenly deflating. He turned scarlet as he realized- he had imagined the taunting stares.
