I had made it through the day (barely) and I had one class left. Theatre, the one I was looking forward to the most. I entered the theatre and there were students already there and no teacher yet.
The other students scared me. They seemed intimidating to me. In fact, I decided to leave school and go home. But as I headed for the exit, the teacher came in. With Matt beside her.
So I was stuck.
During that class, I met Matthew. Or Matt, as I knew him. We quickly formed a close friendship. Which not only helped me enjoy that class, but also helped me through the rest of school. He made it much easier to go to school, knowing I had a friend waiting there for me.
