@Oly-RRR: One thing to be said is that in this case, or in other cases one reads about in the news, your take on things changes as you grow up, and probably you manage to see it from another perspective. At that age, everything is a huge deal.
That's one problem with some of us who have a good memory, we remember how we felt!

On the other note, thanks, I like playing around with these film-like scenes, to jazz things up a bit.

This! This thing right here always annoyed me so much... I try to be understanding about it but I was one of the bullied kind in school (nothing major like in this story, mostly common or garden hostility) and it's REALLY HARD to feel any sort of empathy about all the "boohoo, I wasn't bullied myself but I had to watch it or do what bullies said so I wouldn't be bullied myself" - you had a CHOICE, cry me a river. 9_9

On another note, nice gestures to fill the scene!

@Hiddenfolk: That's a good point! Memory is a funny thing - we can let go of them to feel better, or build them up into something to feel worse, or just replace them with something else entirely. It only sucks that not all of it is controllable.

But yeah, looking at it as an adult it's like there's a separate memory of the actions (that weren't THAT big, and probably could be dealt with in multiple reasonable ways) and then the memories of feelings are like a whole other situation entirely. At least we got better at remembering to take a deep breath and all that.
