Behind the Walls of High School ( realsitic fiction)
Behind the walls of the American School in Lebanon, a boy called Philip was walking past the cafeteria with his friends. He stopped at a table that had two girls, Gloria and Kate. Philip made up a joke and told it to the girls. Kate laughed but Gloria took it in a negative way. Gloria is a girl that never liked to solve problems in peace, so she called her sister’s boyfriend.
Philip went to his locker to get his books for his math class when he heard screaming girls. Philip ran to see what was happening, he saw a boy running and shouting, "Philip! Philip! Come out and face me."
Philip said, “I am Philip. What do you want?” with a puzzled face. So the boy pushed Philip on the locker. His sister Sophie was there; she saw her brother getting hurt, but she was too scared to move. She just stood there sweating and shivering. Phillip was doing the best he could to be free, but the boy was strong enough to keep him down. Suddenly, Phillip’s friend Nathan showed up. He helped Phillip break free and hit the boy who attacked him.
Phillip was sent home because he was in so much pain. Sophie was so shocked and ashamed of herself because she didn’t step forward and help her brother. After dismissal, Sophie rushed home into her brother’s room. She found him lying down wearing a neck cast. Her mom told her that if he got hurt more he would have cracked his neck and died. Everyone was thankful for Nathan’s surprise rescue.
Sophie sat by her brother's bed with regret in her eyes as she wept softly for a while, then she left him to rest. It was already night time and Sophie still couldn’t sleep, moments later her mom came through the door. She knew why Sophie was so worried. Sophie’s mom told her so many times that she couldn’t have done anything even if she wanted to, because the boy was too strong. After her mom left the room she felt a bit better, but she still couldn’t sleep comfortably.
The next morning, Sophie sat with her family for breakfast. She looked around trying to notice if her brother was around. A few minutes later he walked in with apale look on his face. Phillip felt good enough to go back to school and see his friends. When Phillip saw Nathan he thanked him so many times because he saved him.
Phillip sneaked away to the bathroom because something bothered him in his neck. When he reached the bathroom he dropped to the floor screaming from the pain, and then he fainted. One of his friends passed by the bathroom and saw him; he picked him up and called for help. By the time the ambulance came, the whole school was watching outside.
Sophie had no idea what was going on, until her sister Amanda came rushing to her classroom excusing Sophie from her teacher. Sophie still didn’t know what was happening until Amanda explained to her what was going on. As soon as she heard Phillip’s name coming out of Amanda’s mouth she ran as fast as she could to see him. The ambulance was gone when she got there, so she called her parents to follow and she took a taxi with Amanda.
Everyone was at the hospital worried and waiting for the news from the doctor. The doctor finally came clearing his throat; everyone stood up ready to hear what he had to say hoping for good news. “We had some complications, Phillip could not breath” said the doctor. Everyone started to cry, then the doctor interrupted, “He is fine now, we made it through and he will be ready to go home in 3 days.”
A few months later, after Phillip’s recovery, he returned to school. On his first day back, he noticed Gloria looking at him so he walked over to her and he told her, “Good Job! Wouldn’t you have been happy if I died?” Gloria didn’t care what had happened to him so she responded with a dirty look. Like a man, Phillip walked away.
