“Smack!” the shiny, crimson ruler slaps my arm, leaving an agonising red mark on my arm. I cover the mark with my other hand and stare blankly at my despicable teacher, Miss Martin. She gives me a nasty glare and her nose flares. 

“GO BACK TO YOUR SEAT,” Miss Martin roars at me. I continue to stare. 

“NOWWWW!” she screams, startling me. I immediately scamper to my desk and sit. 

“Alright, now children —–”


Instantly all of the children rush outside to the playground. 

“NOT YOU!” she points a stern finger at me and reaches for her red ruler.
