I’ve forgotten if I’ve ever seen Kate Marsh smile or laugh in the past month. She’s really sweet and nice, even though the other students make fun of her abstinence campaign. Even if they act immature, everybody at Blackwell are seniors, not high school freshmen... She gets a lot shit in fact. I know she’s involved in a lot of religious groups, but she doesn’t preach to me so I don’t care.
But she’s been extra quiet and introverted the past couple of weeks. She looks like she’s in zombie mode. I wish I could help her, but I can barely help myself. I wonder if all that bullying has worn her down... I can see how it would. I have to make an effort to talk to her more often, maybe invite her to tea or a movie.
Although she’s an adult I bet she's not “allowed” to watch “R” rated films…
