Nathan Lake is still facing difficulties at school regarding his appearance; it's making him angrier and angrier.

Nathan Lake here.  The one the kids call "The Creature".

I'm afraid things aren't getting any better.  If anything, they're getting worse.  I don't know what to do with this ongoing bullying problem I'm facing; the only refuge I get from it is when I'm not at school.  It's madness, pure madness!

Even as I sleep, I hear those terrible taunts, see the twisted, sneering faces of those goons who find it hilarious to torment me.  It's been wrecking my sleep, and I can hardly eat because my stomach's usually tied up in knots.

I'm thankful for my parents, my friends I do have; otherwise, I'd have gone off the deep end by now.

I don't want to think about what may  happen if those damned kids don't stop teasing me like this.  I might snap, do something totally off the wall.  I don't want to think about bringing harm to those who torment me, but the g.d. school ain't doing a thing to put an end to the growing bullying problem.

Looks like I might have to take matters into my own hands; it ain't gonna be pretty, is all I have to say!!

I'm not the type of guy who would bring harm to innocent people; however, it's not the innocent people I'm not concerned about.  It's those goons who continually heap misery on poor saps like me.  My face makes me an easy target for bullying, and I am sick and tired of it!!

Well, I gotta go.  Am getting sleepy; need to think more on this, what I am going to do to curb the bullying situation at school.  Got all weekend to think, reflect.  Something's gotta be done, and someone's gonna pay for what they've done to me (and others) at school!

Take care!  I'm checkin' outta here; going back to bed now.  Good night!

~Nate. ("The Creature"). :(

Very well done Karen. There are many lessons to be learned from your series here. I am enjoying this one very much. God bless.

Hazing at school is something that goes on quietly and the bullies continuously pick on these kids. I recall being bullied once. I had four brothers who took care of it afterwards. Poor darlings!

Sounds like he is about to head for a break down and in the process innocent people might go down, I agree this is scary, I read Missy Carrols book and Robin's Book and the tragedy is still heavy on everyones hearts
God Bless

This is a little scary, and so much like Columbine, and other schools
that had these problems. When children are teased, they are angry and hurt. They act differently. Some crawl inside themselves, others act out. Been there, done that. I was lucky, after crawling in myself, I managed to get out. Why do people treat others that are different so meanly, and than think it's funny. I don't understand. Excellent write once again, Karen.

Luv, Mary

I remember being bullied as a child because my parents came from France and thus we were not considered "Canadians." I was grateful for the haven of home and family. Thank you, Karen. Amour et paix, ton ami de la C-B, Canada,

Such a sad write, but one that isn't uncommon, I mean about the kids being who are a bully. This year before school began all school faculty and staff had to go to a six hour training about bullies and how to handle this type of situation. When I read stories such as this and attend trainings for such, as well as see the horrible tragedies where bullies have pushed someone that is a bit different too does make me glad that I am a primary teacher, it is much easier to handle situations with six year olds than with preteens and teens! Your story is a wake up call for those who work with children to keep their eyes always open for such situations, situations that they might be able to help prevent more hurt, more pain, and tragedy while also helping comfort those who are hurting and giving them a safe place a place of refuge and hope! Well done my friend!

His rage at his tormentors is obviously reaching a point of no return. I remember being bullied in school, but nothing to the point that this child is facing. We can hope and pray he wakes up feeling less angry, but it's obvious he feels the system hasn't tried to help him.
I agree that what happens next may not be pretty.
Excellent, revealing story, Karen.

Hope he speaks to an adult about this first, all too often when children feel trapped the outcome is never what anyone expects.

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 4/26/2008
This is indicative of what's happening in our schools all over the country. Bullying isn't new, but I think it has probably gotten worse.

I was the recipient of bullying so many years ago I stopped counting, and was finally forced to fight back. My weapon was plain old knock down, pull hair, and scratch. It only took one time to scare a bully away.

They pick on kids who they know are afraid to fight back. My suggeston for every kid that is bullied is to take self-defence training. Once he has the nerve of self-confidence that he can defend himself, he'll probably never have to use it.

I sure hope you don't do something you'll regret for the rest of your life, Nathan. Bullies can be beaten, but it takes just the right play.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 4/26/2008
Madness, yes, madness from parents that haven't educated their children respect for less fortunated, for the ill, for the fellow men in general.
The tauters should be the ones getting pity, because their lives will grow poor of feelings and with a miserable soul no one would wanted.

Sad - kids can be so cruel. The reader feels Nathan's mounting anger - excellently penned.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
