East High is a nice quiet school but recently has been over run with fear, fear for one bully.... Grendel. "Loud in that hall,' the harp's rejoicing call and the poet's clear songs, sung"
Little do these students know just what awaits them when they step of the bus. "A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, growled in pain, impatient"
Grendel is the tallest, meanest, most outkasted student in the whole school and he is sick of it. "Conceived by a pair of those monsters born of Cain, murderous creatures banished by God, punished forever for the crime of Abel's death."
Grendel goes from class to class tormenting and teasing any and everyone he sees, including the teachers. "Thoughts were as quick as his greed or his claws: He slipped through the door and there in the silence snatched up thirty men, smashed them"
Soon students start to hide under tables, in lockers, basically anywhere they can to avoide the school bully "Distance was safety; the only survivors were those who fled him. Hate had triumphed. So Grendel ruled"
The principal could not get Grendel under control until finally a new student stepped up amoungest all the rest. He asked the principal for an intervention. They even called Grendels mother, saying her bitterness at home wasnt helping him at school.
