Bad Day

I was so close to tears. I could feel them just behind my eyelids threatening to spill out any second. I could feel my face crumpling into a little ball, my lip quivering...I needed a friend.

I was surrounded by friends, but something was missing, and then I realized, I was having the worst day of my entire life, and NO ONE cared.

I recently gained the status of "class clown", always the one they look toward for a laugh, and usually I'm happy to comply.

But then I realized that due to my new position, nobody took me seriously any longer, somehow everybody had forgotten that the class clown, no matter how silly, has feelings too.

So I walked alone, apart from my group, and cradled my tears, not allowing myself to cry, when I felt a presence beside me. I looked up and there was a stranger, a boy I'd never met.

"Are you okay?" he asked, and my tears began to fall.

"Thank you," I said, smiling despite my tears.

"For what?" he asked.

"I needed that." I answered.
