Bullying in Grade 9 - Creativity Ignited

Once upon a time, there was a 14-year-old girl named Deneer who was in grade nine at Heart Lake High. She was known for being very outspoken, but when it came to violence, she was not interested in fighting anyone.

One day after school, Deneer found herself at the soccer field, surrounded by a group of bullies who accused her of giving another girl in their class a dirty look. The bullies told her that they wanted to fight her, and a crowd had formed around Deneer, chanting for a fight.

Deneer's best friend, who was there with her, didn't stand up for her, leaving her to face the bullies on her own. Despite her reputation for being outspoken, Deneer was feeling overwhelmed and scared. She had no interest in fighting the bullies, and she knew she needed to come up with a different plan.

Deneer quickly thought of a distraction, and without hesitating, she started to sing loudly and off-key. The bullies were taken aback by Deneer's sudden outburst and were momentarily stunned. While they were distracted, Deneer took the opportunity to run away as fast as she could.

Although Deneer was safe, she was still shaken by the experience. She realized that she didn't have to resort to violence to protect herself. Instead, she used her creativity and quick thinking to escape the situation.

From that day on, Deneer continued to use her voice and her wit to stand up for herself and others. She learned that there were many ways to be strong, and she was proud of herself for choosing a peaceful solution over violence. Despite her encounter with the bullies, she never lost her love for art and continued to create beautiful pieces that brought joy to those around her.
