“Why do you want to hurt others, Tara? Or any of you for that matter,” asked Jenna holding the folder for Miss Stein tight against her stomach with her arms crossed over it as if she were hugging herself. “We never did anything to you.
A short, curvier girl shoved Jenna, who fell backwards and hit her lower back on the railing. Suddenly there was a high-pitched, ear piercing, horror movie scream. Jenna stood up, ready to get away however she had to. Tara was pushed right past Jenna. Mira grabbed Jenna’s hand as a couple of girl’s were bent down helping a third girl sitting on the floor crying. Another girl stepped in front of them.
Jenna made a fist and sterrnly said, ”Out of the way! Now!” The bell rang, scaring Jenna. The girl moved out of their way. A male teacher was suddenly in front of Mira and Jenna as they started walking down the stairs.
“What’s going on here?” He asked.
Students were now crowded at the bottom of the stairway too. Jenna and Mira were backed up against the wall. They side stepped until they were behind the crowd. Jenna motioned to the seat by the window.
