My Very Long Journey To Love

By @CoraLove

Grade 7

In grade 7, I was antisocial and a victim of bullying. I would eat my lunch most days alone, the only good friend I had was named Fatmé Mehdi (my friend since grade 5). She was in the other class. For the group projects, I was stuck working with the most annoying guys that you can imagine, their names were Reda ( who was also in my bus), Francis Lalonde and D’Angelo.

My only crushes were a guy in the other class, his name was Abdul that I liked since 6th grade, and a guy in my bus, Norman-Phillipe that I started to not like anymore after a couple months. He was swearing a lot. The bad guys in my bus noticed, a guy in the same grade as Norman, Martin, and Reda. They made me say my crush to him.

After the weird camp at the beginning of the year, two guys named Adnan and Steven, started asking me ‘Do you like cocoa (hot chocolate)?’. I told them no (it was the truth) but after they started asking me that question over and over again, as if they did not hear me. They asked me at least twice a day for the whole month of October. Until, at the end of October, two new kids named Marie-Ève and Yannick, and a guy named Aziz Lemieux started calling me cocoa, and they did not know it was happening for that whole month. I finally told the principal, and they all wrote a letter of apology.
