You know Steven? I made him drop all of his stuff!
That's not OK. He didn't do anything to you.
I'm done being mean.
A few hours later after everybody had left, Michael and Emily went on a walk. One of Michael's friends texted him about how he made a kid, Steven, drop all of his belongings on the ground. Michael, instead of laughing, texted him that he shouldn't have done that.
It's okay. Friends?
Emily was so proud of Michael! He had changed back to the kind person he was before. Michael also felt better about himself. It was better to be nice to everyone than mean. From here on out, he said that he'd be nice to everyone he talked to.
The next morning, Michael had to go to school. He woke up with a smile on his face. While he was getting ready for school, Michael was thinking of what he was going to say to the people he was apologizing to.
When he arrived at school, he walked to the first person he wanted to say sorry to. His name was David. Michael apologized for ignoring him when he tried to start conversations. David accepted his apology and they soon became friends.
Next, he apologized to a couple other people when he saw Stephen in the hallway. Michael walked up to him and apologized for what his friend did to him. Stephen was actually a very nice person, and they got to know each other.
When Michael met up with his friends during lunch, he told them that he would not put up with the mean behavior that had been going on. They came to an agreement, and all was well. Michael had truly changed.
