QUOTE: "Like, I've been nice, Teach. I've been quiet. I don't know, like, what else to do. I haven't been mean. You'd be happy about that, Teach. I've been doing it your way. But, like, I still need your help. I need you to come back. Everyone needs you back" Pg. 168
When this incident happened, and saw Mr. Terupt just lying with no consciousness, she changed her mind and recognised that all Mr. Terupt was saying was right. In this speech, she is really trying to tell Mr. Terupt that she became nice and that she reconsiderated herself. I think this speech shows the very obvious change which took place. She changed her personality a lot from before. This speech also shows a lot of guilt which is inside her heart and her real thought.
The setting of this speech was in the hospital where Mr. Terupt was lying on the bed and Alexia sobbing beside him. The three girls, Jessica, Danielle and Anna stepped into the room. And they saw Alexia. Before all of this incident happen, Alexia was a very cold-blooded girl. She hurted other people's feelings and made rumors of others and all these bad things. She got called upon by Mr. Terupt once and this was the time Alexia hated Mr. Terupt the most.
