When I got to 6th grade, I started to think that she was a geek because other kids would tell me she's a geek. They said things like, she tries too hard in class, and she always has her homework done.
I started to be mean to her. I thought it was the cool thing to do. Everybody else wanted me to be cool. I told them about how she spends so much time reading, and how she has her parents teach her to spell huge words like extravagant or stupendous.
Then I made fun of her for getting straight A's, for reading, and for learning how spell. The biggest thing I did was called her geek every time I saw her. She really didn't like it.
Now, I look back on how foolish I was. She always wanted to help me. I realize that I shouldn't have treated her the way I treated her just because I wanted to be cool.
