It wasn’t on purpose

“Emily Jackson. A girl who was easy to miss. He’d seen what happened whenever she entered the cafeteria and sat at a table. Suddenly, the other kids who were already there would remember something else they needed to do and would get up one at a time and leave. Or when a group of kids was talking in the hallway and she approached them, they would tighten up their circle so there wouldn’t be any place for her. And so she would walk past. Alone. He didn’t think they did it on purpose, treated her like that, it was just the way kids are sometimes.” from “Blur ” by Steven James Post Views: 53
