My excuses would make him furious. He was bigger than me. He took me by surprise. I was scared. I tried to run away.
He grabbed me and shook me, yelling into my face. ‘The next time a boy tries that knock him down. Do you understand me?’
He let’s go of me and shoves me backwards, hard enough to make me slam into the room door.
‘The next time I hear my boy acted like a little girl I’ll beat you black and blue’.
