” we have a tradition right
” yes we do ….
Just then the students shouted do it “do it” do it”
They handed Gretel a marker and she painted the chair From behind
Gretel boldly wrote
Beware of the commoner
dirt lurks around senior high
All the students started laughing just then Angela stood up and faced Gretel
” stop , please stop !!!!
“;omg she wants to beat me “, gretel said covering her mouth with style.
They students shouted finish it” finish it ” finish it ”
Just then Gretel tried painting her school shirt but Angela held her hand
” my mum really suffered to buy me this cloth “,….
“;she doesn’t know I can withdraw her admission, hey don’t you know my father owns this school ?”….
Just then Angela withdrew her hand and Gretel painted her school uniform while they other students laughed
She even had to paint the girls face then she dropped the marker and Amanda sterilized Gretels hand
She walked away just then the male students pushed both Angela and her chair to the extreme end of the class where she sat alone crying
GREtel walked downstairs to the directors office
” come on in gret !!!
” good day madam
” you are the best dancer in my class but since you won’t compete who do you recommend to be nominated
” KeilA, KeilA Williams and Susan George I trust this two girls

” don’t worry you won’t loose
Susan looked at the notice board where a student just pested something
” it’s you and keila “, the nominees “, gretel said
Just then keila walked into the class room she checked the notice board and walked to Gretel
” my name is there gret
“; am so happy
Just then keila noticed Angela as she tried wiping her school uniform which was well painted
” hey who is that?…
“its the new commoner
” I thought Gretel made sure no commoner comes to this class?…
” well i guess she is really smart ?”,.. Gretel said.
” but who did that to her?..
” come here”, keila dragged Gretel to the locker room
” what is wrong with you gret
” come on its our tradition..
” tradition you created, who do you even think you are.. just because you have it all doesnt mean you should treat others like trash even God treats people equally not to talk of you gret.. i really thought you have overgrown this but I guess I was wrong again!!!!.
” ok fine am sorry…
” sorry, will sorry give her a new chair, will sorry buy her uniform, sorry gret, but sorry is not enough ….
keila walked out of the room and instantly Gretel remberred exactly when celine Said the same words she sat on the floor

Anna danced in a ballet room she did a dance then she spinned around and stoped spinning as she maintained an en pointe position on tip with one leg she couldn’t believe she was doing it for like 30 seconds then she fell down just then she heard someone clapping for her it was her tutor

Light opens hours later on Gretel as she walked sluggishly into the class room with a bag in her hand she was surprised when she noticed that they were having lectures and only Angela maintained a huge space while other students sat away from her Gretel walked into the class and the teacher turned to her
” you are late and you are still clumsy
Gretel looked at her and didn’t say a word rather she picked a chair and headed towards Angela she sat down and turned to her teacher
