Superior Essays
Lying on my bedroom floor, I cried. It wasn’t one of those angry cries or stress cries, it was a cry that highlighted the hurt and pain that consumed me. I couldn’t comprehend what I did to deserve any of it, so I just cried. No one could hear me. Earlier that day in 2012, I woke up to my regular, everyday routine.

It was just like any other morning. At lunch, I showed my friends what I had received that morning. “She is just jealous,” one would say. “She doesn’t even know you omg,” Another would respond. “Tell that person to … (fill in the blank with your own imagination).” Because I wanted to appear strong, I laughed along with them. With all of our mean responses combined, we came up with something to say back to the anonymous user. “I’ll send this her when I get home and hopefully she will be too scared to respond!” I eagerly told them, excited to give her a taste of her own

I never liked that bus since I was a kid.…
