It is both Kirsten and Walkers first day of school. They are very nervous (they are not friends yet).
When Kirsten and Walker get to their lockers, they both think of the worst after seeing two other kids right next to their lockers who look very mean.
"What if I can't make any new friends?"
"Dorks," they whispered.
"What if I get bullied here like I did at my old school?"
"I should take to that kid Walker. He seems nice."
Walker realizes that he is the only African American kid in his school. Kirsten starts to want to become friends with Walker.
"Am I the only African American in this school?"
Kirsten finally asks Walker if he wants to be friends and he is very happy about it and immediately says yes.
"Hi, you seem nice. Do you want to be friends?"
"Yes! You seem nice also."
After a long day at school, Kirsten and Walker get on the bus. But someone started to bully them.
"Hey dorks! You guys have no friends."
.""Yes we do! Stop bullying us or we will tell the principal."
Kirsten and Walker get to Kirsten's house in tears. Her mom hears from the kitchen and comes out to see whats wrong. After this, Her mom tells them that she will speak to the principal if it ever happens again.
