```I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I HAD GOTTEN MYSELF INTO.
It was a Wednesday, the middle day of the week, when the school's biggest (literally) bully had made me her target. She's big ole Mackie, the person that Denver Colorado High School fears the most. You have probably seen her in the news since her mother is a famous actress and his father is a well-known politician. Mackie and I had never been friends, and if ever we were, I don't think I'll stay alive until eighteen.
If it wasn't for the existence of camera phones and the application - Snapchat, I would not be in this deep turmoil. Mackie caught me cheating on our Algebra examination which happened to be the subject that I suck at the most. Being a scholar, I would never want anyone to find out or else, I would lose my privilege of not having to pay the tuition fee. To be honest, I did not really cheat. I was just asking a question on how to change a radical expression into a quadratic expression, simple as that. Is asking for the process (not the answer) considered cheating? I bet not.
When Mackie sat in my place (the farthest table of the cafeteria, beside the exit), I knew I was supposed to be dead. Unfortunately, I was breathing and that made me wish that I was just dead, no questions asked.
"Good morning, princess of Jenova. I can grant you your pardon for your cheating incident." She began, taking a bite from my cheese-flavored nachos.
"As far as I'm concerned, no one invited you to sit with me. And besides, you're not the principal of this school." I said with a smirk.
The technique for talking to bullies: pretend that you're of the same level even if the reality was - you're on the negative ten and she's on the positive ten.
"As far as I'm concerned, it's a protocol for every table in the cafeteria to have me as their very important guest." she winked, taking my whole plate and placing it on her side of the table. "I'm saving your scholarship, don't think of me as the bad person here. So here's the deal... no one will find out about the video of you passing notes with Connor, as long as you obey my commandment. And it's just one."
"Since when did I become your Moses?"
