Every now and again a really awesome story just kind of falls in my lap. This is an example of one such story, which was discovered on the livejournal facebook page, of all places. It’s a poignant little tale that reminded me of what it was like to be in Middle School, watching kids who were your friends over the summer avoid you in the hallways nine months out of the year. It brought up painful memories, perhaps bittersweet because of lessons learned since then. And, because I like speculative fiction, this story also features a little fantasy element to keep things interesting.
