That night Sophia decides to call a friend from her old school for support. Her friend tells her that she should talk to an adult about what is happening. She doesn’t want to tell a teacher and get her teammates into trouble.
Thank you for coming with me.
It's okay. As long as you're alright.
At the next training session, the coach tells the girls to partner up. Sophia is left on her own but pretends it doesn’t bother her. She is devastated. Then out of nowhere, Amber asks her if she wants to be her partner. Melissa is furious. Amber ignores her and stands next to Sophia.
It was wrong to treat Sophia that way.
After training Amber tells Melissa that she needs to tell a teacher about what is happening as it is not okay to bully people. Amber tells Sophia that Melissa likes to bully new kids at school.
The next day Sophia asks Amber to go with her for support to speak to the teacher. After speaking to the teacher Sophia feels so much better. She doesn’t feel alone anymore.
Melissa is spoken to by the teacher. As a punishment she is suspended from the next two football games. Melissa’s excuse is that she was bullied when she came to the school. She understands she was wrong to treat Sophia the same way she was treated.
