|Eighteen year old Wendy has a bad day, but finds that, after a daring adventure, something good always comes from a bad day.|
At some point of in everyone's lives, we experience a bad day that is filled with one embarrassment after another. For most people, it's just a bump in the road of life. But for me, a bad lead to a daring mission, a new friend, and lessons learned. My name is Wendy Michelle Kerns. I am 18 years old and consider myself a "Woman of the Arts". Why do I consider myself this? Because in my life, I have a strong love of anything in the arts, whether it's on paper or performed in front of an audience. The high school that I attend, Landale Public High School, is, in my opinion, the best place for a student like myself to nurture my academic life as well as take Music and Art lessons. That is, until I had a bad day there. My day started out in school, in Science class to be exact, where my classmates and I were learning about alternative forms of energy to electricity such as wind, water, and the sun. Our teacher, Mr. Bunsen, was using a box fan and a pinwheel as visual aids to explain how the wind can move objects in order to make energy. He used other things in his lecture like a paddle wheel, flowing water, and other items as well. As I sat in the class, taking notes on sheets of paper and drawing a picture of a cat at the same time, I thought," Mr. Bunsen's class is interesting today. My day ought to go great from here. " But I was about to be proven wrong. While Mr. Bunsen excused himself to use the restroom, Kevin Snyder, the school bully, and his group of Hooligans decided to have a little fun by tormenting me. While I sat at my desk, quietly working on my drawing of a cat, they got up, and took all of my papers, including my cat picture. Horrified, I called after them," What are you guys doing?! I need those papers. They're mine!!!" I got up and started towards them. But Kevin stopped me and asked in a mocking tone of voice," Oh, does little Windy Wendy want her precious papers back?" "Windy Wendy", by the way, is a nickname that everyone has been calling me since I was really little. My Grandmother gave me that as a sign of how I am like the wind, touching her's and everyone's lives in my own artistic way. Once my Mother called me that in school, my classmates started doing that as well. I love my nickname, but in the case of Kevin bullying me, he should give it more respect, like everyone else does. "Kevin, I need my papers back. Otherwise, Mr. Bunsen will not be happy to see this." I tried to be firm with him, but I guess he sensed some pleading and crying in my voice. Because he and his gang just scoffed, laughed at me, and did some of the most despicable acts I've ever seen. I lunged at Kevin once more for my papers, but he pushed me and I fell flat on my back. "If you want your papers so badly," one of Kevin's friends told me as he held the papers towards the box fan," Go get them, Windy!" And with that, Kevin turned on the fan and my papers flew all around the room. Some of my classmates and I tried desperately to catch them, but they were too quick for us. Gently, they sailed out the open classroom door and disappeared. I was really heartbroken, but the next thing I knew, Kevin broke my heart even more. With the fan still running, he held my picture of a cat over the blades. "Please, Kevin!!! Please don't harm my precious cat!!!!" I was on my knees, crying out in a loud voice. Maria Bergstein, one of my nicest classmates and friends, chimed in. "Come on, Kevin. You have gone far enough with this. Let Windy Wendy have her picture back and leave her alone for once." Kevin, apparently, decided to ignore us both. He rolled his eyes and dropped my cat picture into the fan's spinning blades where it got shredded into a million pieces. Then they fluttered onto the floor. I felt my heart go along with them. Just when I was just about to burst into tears in front of my stunned classmates, the bell rang. As my classmates were leaving, I heard some of them say things like, " Poor Windy Wendy." "Is she okay?" and "Kevin's such a jerk to Wendy." I just finished picking up the pieces of my destroyed picture when Maria came up to me. "Are you okay, Windy Click here to read the rest of this story (458 more lines)
