Isn't it sad, when someone can't even tell a higher authority about the abuse he's been taking all year long?
Yesterday, i suggested that he pay a trip to the guidance office. Whether they'd actually do anything or not. It couldn't hurt. Today, at the start of 4th, immediately the ridicule starts again. This time based on "why would he tell?" The "innocent ones" asked away. The poor soul getting yelled at and yelled at. (The teacher's in the hallway at this time.) When they let up, i ask him. Did he go? That's when he comes closer, looks around cautiously, and dips his head.
"can you keep a secret?" He asks me. I nod my head, as he goes into how [our school's favorite saying] "snitches get stitches" scares him. He's afraid they'll get him if he tells.
>wow. So, now.. what would you do?
