When Christmas break ended, Jane was much more excited to start school, than she had been at the beginning of the year. Of course, she still had to see Breanna Lindsay, Audrey Crabtree, Janessa Holtz, Samantha Fisher, and April Hart. But the worst they had done was give her dirty looks and talk about her behind her back. Jane did not care about that as long as they stayed away from her and her friends.
Olivia and Carmen also did better, both seeming to start the second semester on the right foot.
There were no more instances of bullying, and everything seemingly returned to normal.
A Mysterious Lull
Summer returned and still, no sign of drama. Everything seemed to flow so well for the Markowitz’s and the Bennett’s that the hot days of June, July, and August seemed to fly by. Things were going so well, it was almost like a dream. But bullies like the Crabtree’s and their minions didn’t just disappear forever. People like them always had ways of showing up again.

Thank you so much, Arun! 💖
Glad they were able to enjoy their summer but why do I get the feeling something is about to happen?
Your feeling is correct. Stay tuned, sweetie. 😊
Hello Cherie I am glad I stopped in today to read your blog. I am sorry for not reading it more often. The story has such great happiness attached within it. I pray that the bullies stay hidden away from her and her friends.
Thank you so much, James! 💖 It’s so good to hear from you! I’ve been wondering how you’ve been. You should read my post from yesterday afternoon. You wouldn’t believe what WordPress is up to.
As for the story, stay tuned. They’ll show up again and it’s going to be explosive!
I have a sense of foreboding. Even Mark had his week in paradise.
Trust those feelings, Michael. And stay turned!
