The summer mornings were in the student’s dreams, while they were sitting, sleeping, talking and studying in the school of the Far West, the district of the city called the West. The students of this school were ordinary teenagers, who hated school and were just angry with the whole world.
“ZING, ZING, ZING” Terrible sound, the ring rang. Lunchtime. In the school cafeteria everyone is divided into groups of people. Some are considered cool, some not. In the dirty and unpleasant canteen where walls and floors were not washed well, in the left corner Alvonso and Invons were sitting, like they sit everyday. They were talking until they realized that everybody was going outside.
“Fight, fight!” they heard.The back yard of the school was full of pupils, who made a small circle. “Scarecrow!” one boy cried. “Betrayer” another added. The small girl from the circle started to speak “Everyone!” she said with the tone that teachers are using to remind pupils that they are crossing the line and they should do the work that they are supposed to “She is a betrayer!” she continued “Because of her we did not go on the fieldtrip to Disneyland! She reviled the truth to the teacher! She told her that we missed the class and that we spent the fundraising on movie tickets! She should be punished! Boycott her! Ignore her! Make her pay!” These evil words from the mouth of that short girl made the crowed more savage like . In the middle of it, the tall, thin girl was standing, crying and shaking like a scared little rabbit behind the wolf. When Alvonso and Invons arrived, the girl was lying on the ground. The blood was bleeding from her nose, and everybody was laughing. The boy in the crowed had hit her. Alvonso ran into the middle of the circle and shouted ”Stop!”, so loudly that no one hesitated to stop talking and laughing. Then he went to the boy and hit him. The boy fell down, and after five minutes everybody was at school.
The next week the whole school treated Alvonso with indignity and anger, even the girl whom he saved. Bit by bit even Invons’s attitude to Alvonso worsened, but still it was alright.
On the shiny and calm weekend evening Alvonso and Invons walked home from the cinema. The way from the movie theater to their houses was through the cliffs. When they got close to the cliffs, they realized that a crowd had followed them. They stopped. The leader of this crowd was the boy beaten by Alvonso. They began to shout at each other. The boy was asking Alvonso to apologize. “No,no, no!” was the answer to him. The crowd came closer and they wanted to fight. They all were standing in a half moon shape. Then the terrible thing happened, Invons crossed to the other side. The betrayal struck Alvonso; hope and everything he was standing for disappeared in one motion. Then Invons pushed him into the darkness.
