So I went to school after all. When I got there, Jen's gang were all standing at the gate so I couldn't get past.
Jen is a mean, spiteful girl that is in my class. She has lots of friends (I don't know why?) and they certainly do
not like me. Jen is really called Jemima Longscope but it is easier to call her Jen.
"Exuse me please." I said, as I approached the gate, even though I knew that they would let me past without
some sort of stupid remark.
"Why should we, Tessie Falls?" They asked.
"Because I need to get into school, stupid!" I was getting angry and could not really be bothered with all this.
"We seen a little pick-pocket this morning on the way to school didn't we girls? Oh no, sorry, Im mistaken, it
was just Tessie's little brother. Sorry Tessie, he is so small and frail. Your mother must not be feeding you
properly, wait a second, that is because you don't have any money to buy the food!" She burst into fits of
laughter and nudged her two friends.
I clenched my fists and swung at her. I smacked her right in the jaw and all I seen was her face puckering and
her two friends closing in to comfort her. I took to my heels and ran all the way home, as I knew she would run
straight to Matron. Matron is very firm at our school and if you get on the wrong side of her, she will not hang
off, you will get a paddling.
I reached my house and went straight in the front door. Mother was not surprised to see me as it was not rare
for me to just walk home from school if I was too bored or I was hungry or I didn't have anyone to talk to. I do
it mostly about once a week so nobody at school gets that worried about me. They mostly just say,
"Where is Tessie Falls" - The teachers,
"Probably on the run again!" - The student,
"Urrggh, oh well, take your seats..." - The teachers!
