Back then my name was John Cahill, it seems like so long ago now. I woke up that morning. It seemed like just another normal day. I got my schoolbag from my room and then scoured the house for the materials I needed for the day. I found my lunch in the fridge and packed it into my bag with a drink. I put my jacket on, put my bag on my back and headed out the door. I waited at the bus stop for what seemed like forever until it finally came. I stood alone as the other immature children shouted “Loner!” and “Fatty”. I didn’t say a word. I could feel the rage building up inside me. I wanted to just punch all of them in the face. One person shouted “Stupid loner go and get a life”. I lost it I just walked up to him and punched him, I could feel his nose crunch under my fist. It felt so satisfying. I then quickly got on the bus and hid in the back until we got to school. When we arrived I stepped off the bus and everyone just stared at me with anger and contempt in their eyes. I could feel them all watching me. I hurried inside so no one would ask me why I did it. Everyone was dressed identically. Grey shirt, green jumper, navy trousers and a green and red tie. It was like watching mindless zombies. They were all immature idiots no one understood me. I felt so alone at school. No one even talked to me. Even teachers avoided me . A teacher approached me with a look of hatred and fear in her eyes. She said “Did you punch Eddy this morning at the bus stop?” “Yes!” I said “He deserved it He is just an obnoxious immature fool just like you!” She then swiftly walked away as if nothing had happened. The rest of the day dragged on it lasted for ever. Everyone stared at me in the corridor I got so angry. So full of fury I punched a hole in the wall and my hand was covered in blood they then started to call me even worse names like “Emo” and “Gimp”. I was taken to reception and still they stared at me. It was like being in a Circus. It was the most horrible feeling I have ever felt. Lunch came and I sat alone as usual eating my mother’s terrible sandwiches. The last classes of the day seemed like they lasted forever. One of my teachers asked me if I was having any problems at home or in school. I told her to leave me alone that I didn’t need her help. I was wrong, I was very very wrong. I should have asked for help. When the bell went I was the 1st person out of the school. I sprinted past the bus and went straight home. I tripped and fell into a bush. When I got up I had a huge bleeding scratch across my face. I felt like crying out in pain. Under my hand I found a necklace. I could hear people getting closer. I shoved it into the front pocket of my backpack and was on my way. People still shouted names at me on the way home. I broke into a run until I made it home. I went straight up to my room and slammed the door. I took the necklace out of my bag. It was so beautiful I felt enticed by it straight away. I decided I would show it to the only friends I had. Jerry,  Samantha and Jared. The next day I had arranged to meet them all in the park. When I got there I spotted Samantha standing on a hill “Hey!” I shouted she swiftly turned around, her beautiful blonde hair blowing in the breeze. She was wearing a pink tank top and an Addidas jumper with black jeans. She was wearing red Lipstick and black Mascara. She looked beautiful. I felt butterflies in my stomach. I walked over to her and almost as soon as I got there Jared appeared followed by Jerry. I took the necklace out of my pocket and they all stared at its beauty struck by awe I said “Isn’t it amazing?” They all nodded in agreement. “What’s that!” said Samantha and she touched a beautiful shining blue jewel at the centre of the circular plate in its centre and then there was a huge flash of light and everything went black....
