The Weird Kid
Danielle, Age 12, Abbotsford, BC

I ran down the street, not knowing that I would bump into that weird kid after school.

“Oh! I’m sorry, I didn’t see you.” I apologized to the kid, but all he did was sigh, and walk away. I shrugged my shoulders, and started to run the rest of the way home.

“Hi Mom, I’m home.” I kissed my mom on the cheek and started to do my usual chores.
Feed the baby, do the laundry, and wash the dishes after supper was all I had to do on my to-do list.

I started to feed my baby sister, Adrienne, but then she just did not want to eat. She started to squirm, and whine.

“UGH! YOU STUPID BABY! WHY COULDN’T YOU BE LIKE ME WHEN I WAS A BABY?!” I slammed the spoon down on the table, and stormed up to my room. That was when I heard Adrienne start to cry, and my mother start to yell.

“Sydney! You come down here this instant and tell me why in heck’s world you just did that to your sister.” I rolled my eyes, and stormed down the stairs.

“What, mom? What do you want?” I crossed my arms, and looked at my mom with disgrace.

“You are grounded for a month. Now go to your room, and think about what you had just done.” My mom pointed her fingers to the stairs which means to me, go to your room.

I slammed the door shut and screamed inside my pillow.

“SYDNEY! WAKE UP! TIME FOR SCHOOL!” I groaned, and I screamed in my pillow again. I shoved my blanket, and got out of bed.

I scratched my eyes to see how I looked right when I woke up. Oh, how pretty. I brushed my hair, brushed my teeth, washed my face and went to my closet to see if I had any appropriate clothes to wear.

Oh look, there is my Abercrombie and Fitch T-Shirt, and my skinny jeans. Nargh, well I guess that is the only thing I can wear on a Friday morning. I finally put on some mascara, and headed out the door.

“Bye mom. I’ll see you after school. Bye.” I rolled my eyes, and I closed the door shut.
When I finally arrived at school, I met up with my best friend, Matt.

“Hey Matt” I smiled a weak smile, and that was when he noticed I was upset about something.

“Ok Syd. I know that face. What happened?” Matt hugged me, and looked at me with those eyes.

“My mom was kind of upset with me last night. I can’t seem to get over the fact that I am grounded again.” I smiled a little bigger this time, and started to laugh.

“Well, try giving your mom a break ok? For now, let’s get to class. Ha ha.” Matt smiled as he pushed me.

“Oh yeah, hey Matt? What is with that weird kid over there? I accidentally bumped into him yesterday after school, and I was like, sorry! He was like, just sighing…and I am hyperventilating again aren’t I?” I told Matt.

“Yeah, you are. Um…yeah that kid, his sister is this weird girl, and his parents both died. He is always depressed.” I looked at him, and I thought that my life sucked.

“Hey, I’ll meet you at my locker. I have to go talk to someone for a second.” I ran to the new kid.

“Hey you! Yeah you!” The kid turned around, and mumbled

“Yeah, what do you want? I have to go to class.” He walked closer to me and I walked closer to him.

“Well…I heard about what happened between you and your life, and…I’m sorry…” I started to turn around but then I heard him say,

“Sydney, is it…um…thanks.” The weird kid looked at me, but he wasn’t so weird anymore. He smiled, and waved to me.

“Well, I guess I will see you around…but I have to go. Bye.” He turned around, and waved once more.

RIIING! Oh no, I had to run to class. Get all my stuff I need from my locker, and get to class in five minutes. Yeah…I can do it!

I ran into my class. Oh no…I have Mrs. Trencer. The meanest, and most strict teacher in all of school.

“I’m sorry Mrs. Trencer! I ran into some…things this morning.” Mrs. Trencer looked at me, and pointed to my desk.

“Sit. Listen to the lesson, and do not move.” Mrs. Trencher started to snap.

That was when I looked out the window, and I saw the weird kid. He waved at me with a big smile, and I waved at him back. With a bigger smile.

I hope he does well~ I thought, and picked up my pencil to listen to the lesson once again.
