Margot was born on earth and was different from the other students. She actually can remember the sun which is making the other students jealous. "Aw, you didn’t write that!".
All of the students were in the light room getting ready for the sun to come out. They do this so when the sun does come out and the skin is exposed they would be used to the suns rays.
The students followed William's actions and he was bullying her and telling her just because she was born on earth that she was differnet. Every 7 years the sun comes out and when it's not out it is constantly raining. Today was the day that the sun was going to come out and Margot was very excited because she hasn't seen the sun since Ohio.
The rest of the students including the teacher aren't so sure that the scientist are right about the sun coming out and they are doubting that it even going to happen. They locked Margot in the closet because she was being annoying."But this is the day, the scientists predict, they say, they know, the sun…" "It was all a joke,wasn’t it?" He turned to the other children."Nothing’s happening today. Is it ?"
After it was done raining all the students that put margot in the closet felt bad. They weren't sure if she would forgive them.
She knew how hard it was for them to believe her when she said that she was born from earth so she forgave them.
