Gerald’s note

Dear Ms. Huffington for too long you ignored my cries for help, you’ve ignored my pain, my sorrow, and you ignored the safety and well-being of me and other students. From this day forward no child should be dehumanized, humiliated or cast away as an outcast in the school no longer. I assure you me and your son will forever rest in hell because of your neglect so I hope this makes your heart heavy so I say fuck you Ms. Huffington and may you pass and join your son in Hell, for eternity you shall pay for the all the wrong you caused this school! Danielle… I love you.

Thanks. Even though its a short story I did write it in script format but most people don't like this stlye because they prefer novel formatting but I like to do script formatting primarily because I think it brings your story to life.
