I'm in my third year at high school and this boy keeps teasing me because I had a crush on Naruto Uzumaki in Elementary school. When I was a kid people didn't think it was normal so I got teased, ridiculed, shunned and just plain tortured for it. (Elementary school sucked.) In middle someone ate a worm on a dare and everyone completely forgot-or stopped caring.
I was really fragile that day because I was switching out of a class where my favorite teacher (of three years) was and I didn't want to switch; there's a bond their.
I was already upset and then I walk by and hear him teasing me about it. I didn't handle it very well and told him "F*** you!" and ran away then went home crying.
The next day, I expected everything to go back to the way it was before...the teasing, the torture, the pain from being hated for no reason but no one did a thing. No one knew and what was better is that no one really cared.
Our anime club has girls who fawn over Sasuke Uchiha, Pein and characters from all sorts of other anime. I don't just like Naruto; Ichigo, Inuyasha and Koga are all hot-though Naruto's got a special place in my heart still- I'm no ashamed anymore. I'm happy and it's normal now, I'm overjoyed about it.
Though he threw things at my head today-this boy-I hardly know him. We have one class together and we don't even sit together. Not only do I not know how it came up but I don't know why he cares so much?
He threw three coins at my head today and one hit me. I just picked it up and walked to the room he went to hide in and returned it with a big smile on my face. Then I whispered, "Please don't throw that at me again." and left. I smiled and giggled throughout my day, I'm a little more like the characters I idolize. One little comment didn't faze me and it didn't break me.
I'm proud of my strength and I'm also proud of my feelings. (I do still have a crush on Naruto but who cares anymore, I'm happy about it.)
