The Story Of Stepmom At Coventry Village School

I don’t know the title yet

My first day of many at Coventry Village School started out a little stranger than most. My Dad met me at school and walked me to class. As soon as I saw the teacher I was terrified. I wanted to hide, but if I hid then my Dad wouldn’t be close to me anymore. Then the idea hit me, I could just hide using my Dad!
