After living in India for five years, my family and I moved to Kansas. I didn't know what to expect when started school here. "How would all the kids behave?" I asked my extremely smart and sporty twin sister, Parvati. Unfortunately, she had absolutely no idea. The fact that I didn't know what I was walking into made me the most nervous.
Parvati excelled in class and earned straight A's at the end of the quarter. She was also great at sports, and making friends.
I, however, was an introvert, and had A-minuses, B's, and occasional a's. The fact that I wasn't like my sister made me the laughing stock of almost the entire school. When I walked by people to get to my locker, they shot me smirks. The sports kids were the worst of all. They would whisper about me behind my back and give me dirty remarks. That was why I absolutely despised the sports kids.
My sister and I were strolling home from a long day at school. When we passed through carrot park, though, I tripped over something. I looked down to see that that something was a whirligig. It showed a girl with wings for arms, flippers for feet, and a sideways-moon for a smile. It had several unique features. It made it seperate from other whirligigs I have seen. This whirligig is a whirligig, just like others. It's different. It echoed in my head. It's different. People expect me to be like Parvati but I'm different. I then realized that that's how I've been treating the sports kids who didn't tease me. They are individuals who are different in some way or other. I haven't been fair to them.
Sure enough, I talked to some sports kids who didn't tease me, and they turned out to be the kindest people I've ever met.
For about two years I've been learning piano, and I became really good at it. This is one of my unique, special features, like that whirligig I saw in the park.
