School Stories from remembering Secrets

THE SCHOOL DESK

Right at the back in the far right hand corner
I sit.
Alone
There are 51 other children in the room
One sitting next to me, on the aisle,
Usually occupied with the lesson, and ignores my disregard of my surroundings
Sometimes she may be a special friend though, and giggles with me.
Most of the time I have a book on my lap, nothing to do with the lessons, unless it’s History Art or English; I can now see the connection.
The other girls are mostly two years younger than I, and I feel somehow much brainier,
Perhaps not…….
I am usually alone and always feel left out. Once I hoped they would choose me for Captain or even Vice Captain, Vice Vice Captain would do!
But only the popular girls get chosen, I have no idea how to be popular.
Being extremely shy
So I mould myself into my books.
The teacher can’t see me,
I have a book on my lap………
