THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 127

Like Everyone Else

The ten days felt like eternity.
When they ended,
I returned to school
with my stomach in a knot.
What will they say?
I took one step off the bus
and onto campus,
and Liz swept me into a hug
that crushed my ribs.
“Ohmygod!” she squealed.
“I am sooo proud of you!
You kicked that bitch’s ass!
You should have heard
what everyone was saying!”
I’m glad I wasn’t around to hear it.
We walked into the school,
and everyone shrank away from me,
like we were matching poles of a magnet.
I realized something.
I’m just like everyone else.
