ForewordI I see a group of peers crowding around

ForewordI walk to the flaxen bus and watch as it rolls down the refurbished tar road of Indiana. The harsh squeal of the bus reaches my ears and torments them to point break. I climb aboard, not knowing what awaited me once I step foot on the pavement of school. As I rode, staring off into space I hear the utterings of the radio and hear mutterings of a savage storm terrorizing the coasts of Europe.” 14,000 dead already”, announced the reporter, “and more are expected.” Hearing this shocked me to the core. How could any hurricane be so destructive? I heard a moment of static and then a random commercial appeared “Get your waffle cones today! 50% off!”Chapter 1Brutality                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  As we go down the road I saw my school, as all the other 167 days. I get of the bus and start walking toward school and hear the early seminar bell, something I never do. I walk down the hall I see a group of peers crowding around something. As I walk closer I see, I hear the cheerleaders chanting. “Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey are you ready? Are you ready? To play say, go Jay, go Jay! Jay all the way!” As I attempt to pass the multitude of people, I hear my name being called. Frozen in my tracks, I turn around. “Hey nerd, what up!” Jay whoopedI continue walking to the first period, although Jay continues to boast about how I’m as thin as a stick. He claims he is stronger and faster and bigger than me. But what set me off is he claimed this was the reason Raz dumped me. I charged at him, not even moving him a nanometer.  A ring of insults form around us chanting FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! I charged again, he easily sidestepped me and slapped me across the face. The group was migrating away from us like a flock of geese. I suddenly realize why. An eighth grade teacher was approaching straight on like leopard approaching its prey. Jay continues delivering a set of punches until wrangled out by the teacher. I black out. Chapter 2Reduction I stir in the nurse’s office wondering why I’m here. Suddenly I remember what had happened. I stumble off the bed and hit the ground. A sharp pain shoots up my leg and I fall to the ground. I pick myself up and try to regain my balance. I walk through the door and see the nurse. “How are you feeling?” She inquired, walking over to check my leg,”, ‘Cause you’re going to detention””What!” I squawked. ” I’ve never gotten detention before, though!” “Well, you still have it.I storm out off the office in rage. How could this happen, how could I have been reduced to this? Chapter 3Confinement I drive to school with my Mom. She attempts to make me feel better by saying “it’s fine” or” it’s not your fault” but I know it. When we finally make it to school, I feel a horrible feeling deep in my gut.  I wish I had never even met Jay or even Raz. Raz used to be my girlfriend, but she dumped me and went straight to Jay. She won’t even talk to me anymore. As I walk into the school all  those feelings drift away when I see her with Jay, hand in hand, kissing in the middle of detention. All  those bittersweet feelings of Raz suddenly turned to jealousy and hatred. I purposely bumped into Jay and try to break them up, but they pull back together like a magnet. I gagged out of disgust as soon as I was out of earshot. I started heading towards Mr. Clarkson’s room. I sat down in my usual desk and stared out the window. Why was it raining? We were in the middle of a dry season. If that wasn’t enough it was hailing now. I was so confused I hardly had time to notice Jay and Raz walk into the room. How were they still kissing? This is unbelievable. How is it even physically possible? Suddenly the ground rumbled beneath my toes…Chapter 4DetonationThe ground began to shake. We all rushed to the windows to see what was happening. When I saw what was going on, my jaw dropped. A huge mushroom cloud erupted on the pastel horizon behind some houses. Suddenly an ear-splitting noise came from outside. A siren? The principal yelled, “That’s the bomb siren! Everyone, to the shelter!” He quickly rounded everyone up and guided them out of the room. “What bomb shelter?”, I yelled. “There’s a large bunker under the school, and the entrance is in the small closet down this corridor! We need to get there quickly, before the shockwave reaches us!” We all sprinted down the long hallway The principal told us to go in to one of the small closets. He opened the door and yelled, “Everyone inside! There’s a loose floorboard in the middle. Get in!” The principal stood to the side of the small square hole and made sure every kid and teacher got in. I was the last one in. The principal shouted, “It’s too close! We won’t all make it! Get in and close the door!” “But what about you, sir?!” I shouted back.”Just GO!” I had the trapdoor open a sliver still. I heard the rumbling of the shockwave as it got nearer and nearer. Then, it reached the school. Windows were blown in. Paper on the wall shredded to pieces. Then, it reached us. I saw the principal get blown back against the wall. I heard a sharp SNAP!  and as the principal fell limp, I watched his once dark brown eyes go milky white and roll back into his head. The shockwave blew the trapdoor shut, and we were engulfed in darkness.Chapter 5Beginning of the End   “We’re all going to die, aren’t we?”, Raz whined. “Not as long as I’m here, babe”, Jay boasted, while flexing his arms. But I saw the absolute terror in his eyes.”I’m going outside and see if everything is alright”, whispered Mr. Clarkson. He opened
