Weekly Student Writing Sample

This week's writing sample comes from Ethan R., a CCSWP 2013 participant.

You know, some people (and by some people I mean most) would want to keep the love of your life a secret. ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍But I, the average Joe, had just blurted it out in front of every single person in the school during a meeting with the school about safety. 

I had recently gotten the beat down from Phil, The school bully. He is the only kid to ever be held back! Also, you would not believe how many wet willies this kid can deliver in one minute!‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍I had gotten chosen because Phil had beaten me up recently ‍‍and I think the reason for it is because his grandfather died a week ago, but he won't let it go. So he took his anger out on me for making a wise crack about his B.O.
Now this is how it went down: ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍It was a brisk muggy afternoon. Everybody was sitting down respectfully, waiting for me to give out my entire speech about how Phil misbehaved (as I told you all already). 

"This will be exciting" I muffled to myself and laughed a little. 

"May I have your attention please" The principal spoke. All fell silent "I would like to present to you... Nathan Breefall!" ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Claps were everywhere. ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍I tap on the microphone a bit "testing testing, one, two, Scooby dooby doo." The whole room filled with laughter
"Thank you thanks you. Now, I have been chosen from my great teacher to be up here today. Now aint that great? Since my big showdown with Phil, I have gotten much stronger as a person, I am aware now that there are some people out there that have some problems with their life. I understand that Phil has a troubled past, but don't do what he did to me." I showed everyone my black eye. "Now, I would like to tell my feelings to every one of you to show how this is not the right way to go if you are upset." 

I shuffled through my papers and found the next sheet. I look at the paper and see that it's my love letter to Madi! I look at the crowd. I have wanted to tell her my feelings for a while but I had never had the guts to tell her. But since I was up here and nobody could stop me, I figured now was the time. 

“Dear Madi, I know that we have never really talked much, or even looked at each other... But I feel that there is something that I have wanted to tell you for a long time. Ever since the 2nd grade I have looked at you like you’re a princess. A lovely princess that has been looking for a prince. I feel that I could fill that position for you, so I have one question... Will you choose me to be your prince?" 

That did it. Everybody had lost it. Laughing, holding their sides, even the teachers were laughing their guts out.
