There was a little boy that had a passion in the 2nd grade that loved to live every day and always been a happy child. He knew that he was interested into art but never knew exactly what inspired him. Although, it didn’t really matter to him what he did as long he enjoyed doing it. Not only did he love creativity but he also explored with other things that have been interested in. He also is a solitary person that loves to listen to his thoughts in his mind and determine whatever it was that he thinks will make him great one day. Therefore, he became more and more a lonesome kid to find his inner creativity within himself. Then one day he walked around his block and knows there was nothing to do. Then he asked his mom if he could leave the block and explore the town.
Even though he was only seven years old but his mom said okay and don’t leave the block. Although, he still left the block with an adventurous, ambition, and curious mind and decided that no one would stop him from exploring. Then he found a Kung Fu school that he thought was cool. He looked repeatedly at the sky and said to his self that might be the moment that I was waiting for. Then he thought to his self and said but I’m not a violent and don’t like to harm others. Maybe this isn’t the right activity for me and type of art that I want to learn and study. As soon as school was over he went exactly back home and thought about becoming a forensic artist. Therefore he decided that he was going to start working on the craft of drawing.
Finally he got home and spoke to his mom about an idea that he might want to do with his life. Hey, mom and he asked her, how was your day? Virginia told him that it was okay and I got a lot of things done while you were outside enjoying yourself. I was going to wait until Sunday but since you decide that you wanted to go outside today. I said “what the hay”, why not start doing some cleaning right now? Hunter responded back to her, that’s cool mom. Then Virginia asked him, how was your day son? He gave her a response; well it was fun and exciting but as interesting as your day!
Although, I just can’t find what I truly love and what inspires me the most in my life. Virginia laughed and told him don’t worry my son; you just have to look deeper within yourself. The answers that we all are searching for is in our hearts not our minds. I promise you will find it then, just never give up on purpose and what drives to be alive every day. On the following day, Hunter got up for school and he had a smile on his face that no one could resist. Also, on this day he remembered what his mom told him and slept thinking about it. Hunter thinks that he finally had an idea that he loved that made him passionate about something that was very important to him. Therefore, he starts wondering off and daydreaming in class while his teacher was talking. Then he asked his teacher if he can go to the bathroom.
Mrs. Chatterfield is it okay that I go to the bathroom right quick? She responded back, go ahead but hurry back because I don’t want you to miss too much. Hunter went to the bathroom and after a while he was peeing, and some bullies started to verbally assault him. What’s up little wonderer? What do you mean by that? Hunter responded back to the bullies. Then they told him, well what you thinking about in class that you were so deeply in your own world?
I was just wondering what is it that I love and think what I will enjoy every day. After that Hunter left the toilet and said, why did you guys asked that? They responded with a disrespectful attitude; well don’t worry about that because you don’t have any future. We never had one in our lives so why should you have one weirdo. Afterwards, they pushed him against the commode and giggled while they bullied him at the same time. Even though Hunter looked at them with an expression of confusion, he just turned his back to him and went to the sink to wash his hands. That still didn’t stop the bullies from bullying him, because they walked up to him and assault again verbally. They laughed and said to him, what a loser?
Afterwards, the bullies held him up the wall and the leader pushed him in the stomach rigorously until Hunter couldn’t take it anymore. Then the bullies dropped him on the floor carelessly and left him there. Hunter was in a lot of pain after the beating that he felt made him furious and very angry inside. As he continued to become more emotional and the pain worsen so bad that it was excruciating and unbearable. After dealing with all that pain, Hunter decided that he was going to transform that pain to anger and hunger for revenge. Then he went back to class with rage and anger build up inside. This is the first time that he ever felt this way in his life so he didn’t how to cope with it. Instead, He went to the bully that lead the altercation between Hunter and the bullies and punched him in the face angrily.
After he did that the entire class was shocked by the behavior he showed towards the leader of the bullies that assaulted him. The teacher didn’t see what Hunter did to the bully, although the bully got upset and trying to retaliate upon the reaction from Hunter. He couldn’t do anything since Mrs. Chatterfield turned around and seen him going towards Hunter with an angry expression. Hunter reacted with that same behavior by getting up also with an angry expression on his face. She knew that something was wrong with the bully by the mood that he showed towards Hunter and he responded the same way. Then Mrs. Chatterfield walked to them both and asked them. What is going on with the both of you?! They didn’t respond to her at all, instead they continued to look at each other with angry and furious expressions.
After they gazed at each other for a little while, the bully whispered to him and said you better not tell her. Hunter was already upset on the inside and outside, so he wanted to tempt and agitate him to see what type of reaction the bully would show towards him. Hunter told the teacher what the bully did to him. He and some other guys verbally assaulted me while I was trying to use the bathroom then repeated it physically assaulting me. Although, Mrs. Chatterfield responded, well you too need to stop this nonsense and behave like the way your parents taught you at home. After that moment he knew that wanted to go to martial arts school now so that he can get some payback on the bullies. Hunter still didn’t get why people pick a kid that wants to do likes to spend time to his self and do something great with his life.
Therefore he decided that he was going to do something about it and learn how to defend his self. The last bell of the day rung, then he immediately left school and rushed out the door to go the martial arts school. He also was very excited to learn and that’s all he could think about as he got there. He finally got to the school and was ready learn although he just wanted to learn to fight so he walked up to a student asked him if could teach him quick fast. The kid was about 14 years old and Hunter seen and liked how he performed as a practitioner of martial arts in the school. While the teacher is teaching the others the art of fighting, Hunter went in the building. Then he walked to him quietly and asking him if he could teach him to how to defend his self. The kid responded back to him.
Why do you want me to teach you how to fight? This kid at my school won’t stop bullying me so please teach me how to fight him back. He never liked bullying so he told him; okay meet me at my house after school. Hunter agreed and after they trained for a length of time. Hunter was ready and snuck behind him then punched him in the face. Afterwards, Hunter said to him never try to test me again.
