Mountain View High School
With a handful of textbooks, I nervously made my way through the crowded hallway, using my white cane to guide myself, pacing and counting my steps. Although I couldn't see, I could feel all of their eyes on me. Everyone always stared at me as if I was some kind of endangered species.
"Watch out y'all make room for the bat." I heard a male voice say, followed by his obnoxious laughter, along with a few others.
I swallowed the lump in my throat as I attempted to make my way past him and all of the others, but they were blocking my way...purposely.
"E-Excuse me." I mumbled, but loud enough for them to hear. At first they didn't move, they just stood there as if they didn't hear me.
"Excuse me!" This time I spoke a little louder.
All they did was laugh.
"Yo didn't y'all hear her?! Move the fuck out her way!" I heard a female voice say in a thick New York accent. I never heard her voice before.
In an instant, I felt the crowd disperse allowing me to continue my journey. Before I could take a step, I felt someone softly grab my arm.
"Hi beautiful, can I talk to you for a second?" The same female voice spoke again. She let go of my arm, taking a step back and I sighed lowly.
"I-um...I'm kinda in a hurry." I spoke nervously, clearing my throat.
She chuckled, getting back into my personal bubble.
"Class doesn't start until 8:05, it's only 7:50 mamas." She said, making me blush.
"I'm sorry...but right now isn't a good time. I gotta go." I spoke quickly as I hurriedly but carefully made my way past her.
"Alright class, settle down so I can take attendance." My 1st period history teacher Mr. Mitchell said.
He didn't answer.
"Aubrey!" He called again.
"He got his earbuds in Mr. Mitch." I heard Travis say.
"Snatch 'em out his ears." Mr. Mitchell said. The room erupted in giggles and I could hear a chair move.
"Chris! What the fuck bro?!" Aubrey yelled and everybody started laughing.
