This morning I arrived back at school after a brilliant half- term to find that my perfect dorm had been changed around (now where my bed was, another was placed next to it there). Not thinking much of this interruption I followed the staircase out of the top floor in my house across the 5-a-side to the dining hall, to consume an utterly disgusting school breakfast. I returned to my house to find a new face standing there in the entrance hall and I overheard Mrs T saying “And that way is the T.V room.” Then my eyes caught her eyes and I pondered whether or not to slide away sneakily or to stay and find out who the intruder was. I chose the wrong option. In her normal smoky croaky voice she said “James come over here and meet Damien. he is in your dorm”. I thought to myself as I showed Damien to my dormitory, he sounds like a POOF!!!!!
Within 5 days he was screaming down the phone to his father. In extreme cases we heard his parents say “Just calm down, and don’t always take the easy option out of life.” When my friends and I went up to him and said “Don’t worry everyone goes through this, you’re not the only one.” Because Damien was the only one who was new to the school at half term he did not see everyone one else go through the same stage. When we told him this he just automatically took the liberty of offending us usually saying something along the lines of “Shut up you gay twat, you have no idea what it’s like,” We would usually mention something like “Don’t talk to us that way, you gay kev” (to get him worked up you would just call him a ‘KEV’ or a ‘TOWNY’) then he would usually start crying and explain that he is not a ‘KEV’ or a ‘TOWNY’ and he is a ‘SKATEBOARDER’.
I thought that he coped quite well A guy in Witley house when he was in year 7, tried to hang himself but his tie broke unfortunately he left in year 9 because he could not stand the school and the people in it. Hopefully Damien won’t goes so far as that. No matter how hard he tried when we complimented him when he got into a tantrum he would just throw all the kindness back in our faces. But he always ended the Skits with “you don’t know what its like”.
But again with the first out weekend in Damien’s life at school is just 3 days away and he can not wait to go home but when a guy named Thomas Junker in Maybury house annoyed him, we were only just able to restrain Damien from killing him. We managed to calm him down from that his eyes were all bloodshot and he had a crazy expression on his face. Then we walked off and a boy known to everyone as ‘Lippy’ came along and started on Damien for no reason. He started taking the mick out of his parents. That was the last straw.
He was too fast to react and without any of us realising Lippy was on the floor with blood and, as he spat out a tooth but with loads of blood coming through, we felt sort of sorry for Damien. He was driven to smacking that loser in the face. We thought that he was quite lucky. He got an extra long out-weekend. He got suspended but he came back to pick up his possessions and to apologise to everyone for making the dorm hell for a few weeks.
Not less than 4 days later he sent Jamie a text message which read as “hi yr8 I’m levng nw but I’m cming in 6 frm see ya frm DS tb” I thought that’s sixth form ruined but he should have grown up a little more in sixth form so he won’t be such a complaining boring person Hopefully in sixth form he will last more than three weeks
