Teacher - My Friend By Du Zhengdao For Mr. Loh C.T., Jeremy Koh, Lucas Lim, Stacy Tay, fellow editors & readers ~ Foreword ~ Jerome lives in a world in which where all he faces is the solid wall that surrounds his room. He does not like to interact with anyone except his family members. He has no close friends, due to the fact that his parent restricts him of his freedom. Being unable to make friends, Jerome changes from a cheerful teen to an unhappy teen, in just a turn of weeks. In school, all he did was, to face the teacher, not interacting with friends and classmates. He had to obey the instructions given by his parents – being controlled. That has saddened him, and thus, creating a mental block in his brain. Unless he is able to find someone to talk to, he would go mad soon... This is his story. ~ Chapter 1 ~ Sadness Every weekday morning, Jerome would go to school as usual by bus. After reaching school, he would proceed to the canteen and sit at one area of the canteen taking out a book to read until it was time for the flag raising ceremony. After the ceremony, he would proceed to class with his classmates as usual. In class, he would sit at the far end towards the windows, as he did not like to interact with the classmates around him. Even during class discussions, he would seek the teacher for permission to work on the assignment alone. This made the subject teachers feel a bit uneasy. Despite the teachers trying to consult him and having him attend the Civics and Moral Education lessons, nothing could take effect on him. From the subject teachers’ point of view, he was a quiet, polite and hardworking student. Even when the other students are creating a little havoc in class, he would act as normal, still being able to concentrate as if nothing had happen before. No one, not even the teachers could remove the ever expanding mental block in his brain, all they expect is for him to be left alone. At home, he is imprisoned, being unable to enjoy freedom. His parents do not allow him to wander on his own, unless he is able to supply a logical or valid reason. Both Jerome and his brother are close to each other, despite minor conflicts occurring at times. Even though he favours being alone, he has a hobby. Jerome enjoys reading. Whenever he comes home, he would quickly finish up his assignments, homework and revision before reading. This had helped him in his studies and gained his confidence in doing well academically, but not his ability to interact freely. As time flies, Jerome’s mental block problem has become more and more serious and he talks neither to his parents nor his brother. Thus, nothing could be done to help him. A few months later, a few trainee teachers came to his school. By chance, one of the teachers happened to teach his class English. So, the teacher approached him one day during a discussion session. “Jerome, why aren’t you joining your friends to work on ways to prevent crime?” Mr. Khoo asked. “Mr. Khoo, I don’t feel comfortable mixing around.” came the reply from Jerome. “Jerome, is it possible for me to make an arrangement to talk to you Click here to read the rest of this story (155 more lines)
