29 Years

For 29 years, Lorina paid her dues helping young children learn and watched bullies grow stronger under chief bully Dr. Tatchell. It was no wonder there were so many weaker kids getting picked on when all they had to do was look at the leader of the school yelling and throwing books at his own timid teachers. Lorina had sat in the corner watching it all go by long enough. Life was too short; her mother’s funeral yesterday had showed her that. Lorina knocked on Dr. Tatchell’s door.
“What!” he growled.
She cracked opened the door, not bothering to step inside, before shouting, “I quit!”
