He was picked on and bullied in school for being a silent kid. Others who didn’t pick on him tried to stay as far away from him as possible.
Amir was an only child. His parents were very busy working to afford to raise him and never spent any time with him.
He noticed a kid sitting alone on a bench reading a book until he was interrupted by two kids who started shoving him around and calling him names. This reminded him of when he was just a kid and was picked on in the same way
. At first, Amir didn’t know if he should do something about it or not. He didn’t want to interfere with any of this, but he felt the need to. Just as he was about to say something, the bullies left the boy.
“My name’s Amir.”. Amir also gave him a strip of paper with his phone number written on it. “Call me whenever you need help”
Amir never heard of the boy for the next few weeks. He worried about him so he tried to visit the park where he always was but he was never there
A few days later he saw the same kid who was getting bullied in the park in the same spot. Amir went up to him and asked him about the two bullies.
Amir noticed him stuttering and decided to try and comfort Mark. “Hello Mark, I noticed two boys were bugging you the other day, are you alright?” Amir said with a kind tone. “Yes, they’re j-just some school bullies,” said Marcus in a more open voice. “T-they always follow m-me around and make fun of me”.
