I sat at my desk waiting for the bell to ring. Lunch break was over and for the next three hours, I would have to look at him.

Day after day, I have to look at you, as you smile and laugh with our classmates, my classmates.

My nails digging into my hands as I control my breathing.

A perfect row of snapped pencils lined my desk.  

My notebooks covered with scribbles of what I would do to you. If I could.

I was the weird one. You warned me many times. No one would believe me, and I believed you. I killed away part of me because I knew it was true.

 

Yet, I never expected this to happen.

Today was different. Someone asked me. And the lie didn’t arise. Coldly, I spoke the truth, knowing it would not be heard.

But you see, I was wrong.

My plea fell on open ears.

I was not the only one.

 

So today when the Lunch break ends, I’ll sit at my usual desk with a new notebook and pen. I’ll look at the front of the class smiling, as everyone whispers about the empty desk.
