Edgar walked out through the gates of Co-op academy, his head tilted downwards, avoiding eye contact with anyone and everyone. He made sure to walk as fast as possible away from the dreadful place. As he walked he managed to avoid bumping into anyone, he grinned as he got away from anyone without causing any sort of drama. He lifted his head up and looked around him, there was no one in sight, all he could see were the shitty cars they drove on the roads. His pace slowed as he made his way back to his house.

Nothing happened as Edgar walked home which was a good thing. He hated conflict as he had too much empathy and was very emotional. He cried at a minimum of 86 times a day. He walked past one of the best corner shops in existence, One Stop. this was good, that means he was almost home! Soon enough he tripped over and fell into someone.

“AYO” the person yelled, turing to Edgar, “WATCH WHERE YOUR WALKING, WILL YA”

Edgar quickly got off from the person and looked up at them with tears in his eyes.

“I-i-ii-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i im s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-sorry.” His voiced quivered, he quickly turned away and began running home.

The person was very pissed. “THAT WAS NOT A GOOD ENOUGH APOLOGY!” they then began running after Edgar.

Edgar ran to his house and soon enough reached it. He took out his eyes and tried to unlock the door, his hands were shaking very badly, meaning he couldn’t get the keys into the door properly. Due to him being a very sensitive person his vision began to blur as he tried to get the keys into the keyhole. He began to panic more as he heard the person running closer to him and yelling at him more.

“P-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-please g-g-g-go in….” He begged to the keys as tears rolled down his cheeks. Asking worked, so he got the keys in and unlocked the door. Being too worried about the person chasing him, he forgot to lock the door back as he ran into his house.

He ran up the stairs and quickly entered his room, crying extremely hard. He sat on his bed in a fetal position as he just sobbed and sobbed. His eyes widened as he heard yelling and the front door open, followed by footsteps running around the house. Before he could react his door flew open and he shook violently as he saw the person who had just yelled at him.

“YO YOU BETTER APOLOGISE TO ME RIGHT N------” The person then paused mid sentence as he analysed the room, he began to slowly retrieve back, shaking. “OMG…… Y-Y-Y-YOURE A D-D-D-DREAM STAN….. DISGUSTING! I CANT BELIVE IT! I CANT BELIEVE A DREAM STAN TOUCHED ME, IM INFECTED I-I-I-IVE GOTTA GO BYE!” the person then quickly ran out of the house.

Edgar watched as he did, once he left the house he got up from his bedroom and locked the front door before going to his room, continuing his crying session. Why did everyone hate dream stans? Why were they so opressed..? He couldnt believe he just got hated crimed. He cried harder until he fell asleep.

Edgar woke up and it was already morning, so he got ready for school. Once he was dressed in his Co-op Academy uniform he left the house and brought a delicious from this one corner shop. He got tuna. He ate the sandwich as he walked to school.

He walked through the gate, his head on the ground as a few people called him emo and threw eaten apples at him. Man being emo was so hard, he was always getting hate crimed. He teared up and began running to the bathroom to cry to himself in peace. He entered the bathroom and cried in a cubicle until it was time for form, once the bell rang, indicating it was time for form, he got up and headed there.

Once he got out of the cubicle, he saw this one guy.

“Hey. Were You Just Crying In there?” The guy asked.

Edgar didn’t answer. Either way he’d probably just be called the e-slur. *mo.

The guy sighed. “If You’re Getting Bullied Then Just Don’t Be Bullied, Stand Up For Yourself Man, Don’t Be a Bitch Boy Omega. Be A Huge Strong Alpha, Like Me!” The guy then got on all fours and howled. Edgar just nodded and left the bathroom, being inspired by the guy’s inspirational words.

He entered his form and sat in his seat. Which was by the back and next to the window like every single anime protagonist. He got out all his equipment so that the teacher wouldn’t give him a red stamp. Last time he got a red stamp he cried.

The teacher did the register. Edgar was surprised he hasn’t gotten hate crimed yet. 

“Edgar?” The teacher called.

“H-h-h-h-h-here..” Edgar answered. He kept his head on his desk. He decided to read this very good book called ‘Adultolescense’ by the best poet in the world, Gabbie Hannah. She inspired him so much. Once he was older he wanted to be come a great poet like her. As he grabbed it he heard some guys whisper.


Edgar began to tear up once again. Why did everyone hate him? He always got hatecrimed for being emo but damn, let people live. Luckily for him his hair covered his eyes so no one ever saw as he cried.

He felt as some paper hit him and began to tear up more.

“Oh sorry, that wasn’t meant to hit you.” The guy who threw it apologised. Edgar looked up to see who had just been very kind to him. It was the guy who looked like the non emo version of him: Dazai. He nodded to him to show he accepted. He was shaking, no one had ever been that nice to him, he was always getting hate crimed.

Dazai motioned to the paper on the floor, the paper that had just been thrown at him. Edgar then realised he was asking for it. He picked up it and threw it to him. He threw it very badly and the paper landed no where near DAzai. The non emo version of him got up and picked it up, without any complaint. Edgar went to go watch him to see what he’d do next but he heard some people hate crimed him once again, calling him the e-slur. He put his eyes back on his desk and began reading the best book in history.

He heard as the paper hit the guy in front of him.

“What the hell man?!!!” The guy yelled. Edgar looked up and saw it was some very short ginger, what was his name again.. Oh yeah, Chuuya! Edgar watched as Dazai laughed and threw more paper at him. Chuuya got up, slamming his fists on his desk before approaching Dazai. Once he reached him he began to beat the ever living shit out of him. Edgar watched intently sas Dazai got his ass beat like a bitch. This inspired Edgar.

The teacher managed to stop Chuuya and soon enough form had ended. Edgar quickly walked out before he could get hate crimed again and made his way to his first period, which was Pe.

He entered the gym and once the teacher took the register he went into a cubicle to get changed. As he did he heard some people outside the cubicle hate crime him, laughing at him and calling him emo. They even called him a twenty one pilots stan, edgar didnt know if that was an insult or not as twenty one pilots was a very good band, they made emo music and even made that one very underground song called stressed out. 

Suddenly, a huge bucket of water was poured over the stall and onto him. He stayed there in shock as he heard a bunch of laughter. He was drenched. He began to cry. What did he do to deserve this? He sobbed very loudly as snot escaped his nose. It wasnt fair, why was he getting hate crimed all time time, why did everyone hate him?

Ever since he was born his parents hated him, well his dad didnt but then he died when edgar was only 3, and his mom has always hated him. When he was in nursery and primary everyone hated him, including the teachers, they were also so rude and always picked on him. When he went to the doctors, they hated him. When he went shopping the cashiers hated him. He never had any friends as anyone who he considered a friend always hated him. Even all the animals hated him. He has a few scars from dogs and cats that have attacked him for no reason. Even the nicest dog in the world bit him. He has a scar from a few ducks that have attacked him to. Even god hated him, what did he do wrong to deserve all this??

He exited the stall, completely soaked as he continued to sob loudly. He entered the gym and those boys laughed at him, everyone was laughing at him. He sat in the corner and just cried.

The PE teacher, Mr Alexander Jackson-Jones, walked in.

“Alrighty! What’s all this then?” He asked, sitting on some bench. He got out his ipad and got the register up. “Right lads, quieten down!” He then started the register.

Once it was over he explained that all they were doing was running. He said as this was his favourite group, he’d play music for them. He then played Best Workout Playlist. The first song being the best song ever, Shape Of You by the best singer ever, Ed Sheeran.

The boys ran and as Edgar ran he heard as many boys continued to call him the e-slur as they ran past him. He was still crying because he was still drenched. He then got pushed over and cried more. This was enough, he was done. 

Memories of every bad thing that people had done to him bega to play through his mind and then the alpha male he met in the bathroom and that short ginger beating up the non emo version of him played in his mind. He was going to stick up for himself. 

He got up and then pushed the guy who pushed him back.

“Y-y-y-y-y-y-y k-k-k-k-know w-w-w-wwhat?!!” Edgar declaered. Everyone looked at him, not expecting that. “Ii-i-i-i-i-i-i-i--im d-d-d-d-d-d-done! I-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-im sick o-o-o-oof t-t-t-t-ttired -o-o-o-o-o-o-of y-y-yy-y--you a-a-a-a-a-all t-t-t-t-treating m-m-m-m-me -l-l-l-l-like t-t-t-ttrash!!! SCREW YOU ALL!”

Fight Song by Taylor swift began playing that inspired Edgar more. HE began to sing along very loudly, asserting dominance on everyone that had done him wrong. 

“This is my fight song

Take back my life song

Prove I'm alright song

My power's turned on

Starting right now I'll be strong

I'll play my fight song

And I don't really care if nobody else believes

'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me ” He sang.

He sang while beat up everyone in the gym just how Chuuya beat up Dazai, yes that included Mr Alexander Jackson-Jones too. After he was done fight song was almost over. So he did his last move.

He got on all fours and howled, like the big alpha wolf he was.

The song then ended.

Everyone was all badly beaten up on the floor, barely conscious so they couldnt react. Edgar had finally done it, he had finally gotten revenge! He then fell and died.

This one guy called Octavious walked in on Edgar just as he died. He was actually Edgars friend but Edgar was too focused on his bullies and hate crimers to acknowledge him. Octavious then cried very hard as he saw Edgar die.

The end.
