Like, back when Laura was in middle school, the building had all these odd hallways, and the hallway that ran from where her classes were to the cafeteria was super long and there was a stretch of it where the lights were always out and there were no windows and no classrooms along the way to let light in. It was creepy and kids called it the padded cell.
So one day, like after English class, Laura and her friends started off toward lunch, talking about how awful English class was, and how badly they thought they did on the test, and they got to the dark hallway, just cruising along, all good - the top of their class, the cool girls - walking down the dark hall like that scene from Mean Girls, flipping their hair, popping bubbles - cool.
Suddenly, like it was unfolding in slow motion, Laura felt herself slip on something and her feet flew out from under her and she like flipped back and slammed into the floor and hit her head - hard. Her friends didn't even notice and like just kept walking down the dark hallway - like shadows. She was truly scared, on the floor, in the dark creepy hall, with visions of being possessed, dragged off, haunted, whatever - bad stuff - and she called after them, but they didn't stop.
Then she saw that she had like slipped on some empty potato chip bag that had been lke strategically placed on the floor. Laura just sat there, her head hurting, feeling abandoned - a little anxious too - and then someone came up and asked if she was alright. She was super embarrassed so she like jumped up and acted like she was fine. But all these boys were standing around laughing and pointing at her, essentially being mean and teasing and bullying her. No referral, and like no required counselling.
She finally caught up to her friends and they like realized what had happened, asked if she was okay, and then they all realized that the whole thing had been like staged by a bunch of boys. It was like a set up, the mean boys had pranked her and filmed the whole thing and, to make things worse (for Laura maybe things were better) the boys had posted it to social media - on facebook.
The video clip of her slipping and falling made its way across social media and all over facebook - and like, not surprisingly Laura loved it! She was like facebook famous - and even though it was embarrassing, and even though they made a meme out of it, it did kind of go to her head and she did kind of feel like a social media star - for a little bit - but no new life, just back to normal.
