When I was in sixth grade, I knew a kid with a funny name, but this kid’s name wasn’t the only thing that made him different. This boy looked different too. bully

"What are we going to dress up like for Halloween?"

When Samantha asked her new friend, Ashley, this question, she didn't expect Ashley's weird response.  The two friends were walking side by side down the hallway toward the lunch room. Ashley stopped and almost got plowed down by a line of fifth graders rushing into the cafeteria.  If they kept standing there with Ashley staring at her, they were going to end up at the end of the lunch line.  Which wouldn't be such a big deal if it wasn't pizza day.  The cafeteria always ran out of pizza and those at the end of the line got reheated leftovers from the day before.  If Ashley didn't get moving, they were going to be eating mushy corndogs.
