It all started on a cold Christmas night. A 2 month year old baby was abandoned by her mother. The babies name is Maya. Maya grew has grew up in foster homes for as long as she can remember, and the frustration of why her mother left her on Christmas night continues to grow as she gets older.
Time has passed and Maya is now in high school. She's lived a rough childhood. She doesn't listen to her foster parents and she is constantly running away from home. She is also anti-social and likes to be to herself.
Do you want to be partners?
On the other side of town lives a girl named Victoria. They didn't know each other but Victoria has Langue Arts with her. She had also seen Maya at the park with friends and she's also seen Maya walk alone sometimes.
This is a good opportunity to do good since Victoria is smart and can help you!
Um I guess so.
Several days before Christmas break their teacher assigned a Christmas partner project. The teacher explains that they have until the day before Christmas break to have their story done because it was a 5 page essay . Victoria didn't have any friends in this class so she was uncertain of who to pick as her partner.
The teacher dismissed the class to go find their partners. Victoria looked around as everybody went to their friends expect for Maya. Victoria saw Maya sitting their quietly so she got up and asked if she wanted to be partners. Maya said no and went back to being quiet as Victoria walked off disappointed.
20 minutes later it was the end of class and Mr. Larson the Langue Arts teacher asked Maya if he could talk to her. Mr. Larson explained that he saw Victoria ask if she wanted to be partners and you said no. He then said that he thinks this would be a good opportunity to do good on this project because Victoria was smart and can help you.
