2: Once upon a time in a land far far away Alissa Apple was getting out of her car on the first day of school.
3: "You be careful okay?", Mrs. Apple said. "Mom, I'll be fine!", Alissa replied. "Are you sure you don't want me to walk you to your class?", Mrs. Apple asked. "Mom.", was all Alissa said then she walked away.
4: Alissa walked into Cherry Coke High. The first thing she noticed was that she was the only fruit that wasn't round.
5: Alissa was looking for her locker when an orange walked up to her and knocked her books out of her hands.
6: Alissa was shocked. She looked up as she was picking her books up and said, "Uhm exuse me but why did you do that?" The oragne looked down and smiled as she said, "Hi, I'm Olive. Welcome to Cherry Coke."
7: Alissa just looked at Olive. "Uh, thanks?", was all she could say. Olive gave her another shiney smile and walked away.
8: When she got home, her mom asked how her day was. "It was fine mom.", Alissa said. "Are you sure honey? you look sad.", Mrs. Apple asked. "No I'm good."
9: The next morning Alissa walked into school and at least 10 people gave her dirty looks. Alissa ran to the bathroom and cried.
10: When Alissa was on her way to her last class Olive tripped her and she rolled down the hall until Kendall the kiwi kicked her back towards Olive. "I would just leave if I were you.", Olive said to Alissa.
11: Alissa ran home crying and called her friend Stacey the strawberry and told her everything that Olive and her friends had done to her. Stacey was mad. She told Alissa that she needed to tell the principal and her parents.
12: The next day Alissa went right to the office and asked to see Principal Orange. When Alissa told her what happend Mrs. Orange simply said, "Girls will be girls."
13: Alissa did not understand. She thought about it and remembered that Mrs. Orange was Olive's mom! She knew that she had to do something.
15: That Friday night, Stacey went to Alissa's house and they came up with a very good plan.
16: On monday Alissa walked into lunchroom smiling. When Olive asked her what she was smiling at she said, "You'll see." And walked away.
17: Later that day when Olive and her friends walked up, Alissa wasnt scared."What are you smiling at now dork?" "Oh nothing, just what you say or do wont effect me anymore. I relized that I am beautiful and special in my own way. What you think does't matter to me anymore." Alissa said with a grin.
18: Just then Alissa's friends walked over. " Because, I'm not the only not round fruit here at Cherry Coke anymore. Now there are bananas, strawberries, raseberries, star fruits, and so many more! See, I can stand up to you without being a bully."
19: Olive was speech less. Her friends stomped off. Alissa was happy that she stood up to her bullies without becoming one of them.
20: Mrs.Orange was fired, Olive was suspended and Alissa and her friends were happy again. You see? Bullies NEVER win. So If you or anyone around you ae being bullied, make sure to tell an adult. Don't be afraid because, you are helping by being a good person.
