Ann and the Cafeteria Bully
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Kirsten ate her turkey sandwich and glanced sideways at the girl at the next lunchroom table in the school cafeteria. Tiny tears slid slowly down Ann's cheek. Kirsten felt awful. Kirsten knew why the girl was crying. The bully had teased Ann because Ann had freckles.
 
2     Kirsten and her friends at her table did nothing. That was why she felt terrible.
 
3     The bully who had teased Ann was known for being mean. Kirsten thought Ann was sweet and pretty. Ann was known for her light-hearted personality. Her freckles and flaming red hair made her stand out in a crowd.
 
4     For the rest of the day, Kirsten felt bad. What should she have done for Ann? She found herself daydreaming about the dilemma through math class. She pondered the pesky problem during social studies. On her way home, Kirsten thought about Ann as she looked through the dirty window of the school bus.
 
5     When the bus stopped by her house, Kirsten jumped out and ran to her front door. She wanted to tell her mother about Ann and the cafeteria bully.
 
6     "Mom, there was a bully in the cafeteria today," said 10-year-old Kirsten.
 
7     "Really?" asked Mom. "What happened?"
 
8     "The bully teased Ann for having freckles. I like Ann's freckles. I think they are cute. I once told her they looked like tiny footprints that a fairy made when she walked on Ann's nose while she slept. We both laughed. I like Ann, but I was not a good friend today," said Kirsten. Suddenly, her face crumpled like a piece of tissue paper. Soon tiny tears slid down her nose.
