The boy stared at the ground ignoring the mean comments and laughter of the girls. His curly auburn brown hair hung down over his forehead. A small tear began to build up in the corner of each eye, as he continued to look down at his feet. The boy watched sadly as the first of several glistening teardrops fell in front of him. He wiped the next set of tears away from his eyes. The boy moved closer to the door awaiting the morning bell. He moved his feet back and forth slowly, revealing two old worn-out summer shoes with small holes near the toes and on the sides.
