Well not only do they believe different faiths they look so different too. I mean our monitor is a total geek and the girl is as usual a pretty face. Well it all started when our school participated in elocution competition and they were the participants representing our school for the same last year. Our entire class knew about it and I guess the teachers were too aware of it. Another interesting character is the calmest child in our class, Varian. He never talks to any girl. He is very shy. He has no friends and does not mix with anyone . Friend were telling me that he had a broken home that is why he is like this. Poor thing I sometimes wish I could talk to him but I do not know why I have not tried. Well someday, I will. Then there is harsh Banal the rich Bart, he brings the latest’s gadgets, cell phones to the class and boasts and the teachers were unaware of it. He has ASPS, x-boss all the video games you name it he had it. Right at the back of the class sat our class sleepyhead. Mat seems to need more sleep than others. He catches catnaps in between lessons. The astounding thing is that he can fall asleep almost instantly.
The moment the teacher leaves after a lesson, Mat’s snores start up and we know he is at it again. Remarkably, he wakes up when the next teacher arrives. Then there are ghost stories, which I do not want to believe in, but everybody told them to be true. It was about a boy who committed suicide hanging himself from the ceiling. And that his spirit attended the class. That was the reason why no one wanted to stay back in games or library periods . And those who stayed after school told that they could feel the presence of someone in the classroom. Grade 8 was the cost emotional, stressful year I had in all of my school years.
This is because this one girl named Clove was ruining my life. She would tell anyone I was trying to get to know that I had some sort of diseases and advice them to stay away from me and forces them to be friends with her. She took one of my good friends from dance in the past. She made everyone of my friends to go against me, except for Rue. She stayed with me until the end. She and I are still great friends today.
