''SMACK !'' Alex falls to the ground. As she tries to get back up she falls with another ''SMACK !'' then falls back down . The principal comes out and takes Alex to his office.
Alex is a kindhearted girl but , going through a tough time. Her mom had just died, her dad is going crazy, and most of all her best friend just moved and is going to be rough without him.
Alex had gone to school hoping that it would not be such a bad day since everything was going so fast. Alex was helping this boy in math and the next second she is on the ground by a ''SMACK!" then tries to get back up to get back up but fall with another ''SMACK!'' then the principal comes out taking Alex into his office instead of taking Lucy the one who slapped her. Alex asks curiously ''What am I doing in here?'' ''I want to tell you that you are expelled.'' Principle Harvey told her calmly. ''WHAT!?! I didn't do anything I got knocked down."
Alex couldn't tell if the water droplets on her face where tears or rain coming down on this gloomy day rolling down her face. She walked home slowly and when she got there her dad was not there. She went to her bedroom and lieing in bed to fall asleep. As she was sleeping she heard a "Knok, Knok, Knok." Alex goes to the door to see who is knoking and to surprize finds Lucy at the door.
"I am so sorry, I didn't mean to put all my anger out on you, " Lucy cried out. "It is ok! I understand." I said to her. Alex was confused what had happened for a second. Alex invited her in to talk. She sobs louder.
At that moment everything came together and Alex felt loved and joyful. Alex had found a new friend an her dad was the least of her problems and she was happy again. She learned that things can come back together and she relized that things can also get better.
