A 12 year old boy who decided to defeat life......
| CHAPTER 1- INTRODUCTION
HILLTURN HAMERTON SCHOOL
School had started as the bell had been rung . Students sat in their classes listening and barely nodding at everything they heard.Not one was visible in the grounds playing softball or soccer . The part that may seem strange to every stranger is that this was 21st century and not the mid 70s where students existed as book worms and nothing more.
The discipline of this school surprised parents to the extent of putting their children into the premises and destroying their so called childhood , the childhood that is usually spent in the arms of sand or with the company of friends.
However , in this school childhood meant nothing more than getting ready for your future that may be becoming an engineer or a doctor.Students here did not know the meaning of life as they didn't have time to think about it. The homework was the mountain the were forced to lift on their little shoulders.
In a class , between the rows of students sat Eric Smith . Eric was a student of seventh standard of Hillturn Hamerton School . He was not like other students who seem to him like robots programmed to follow instructions or do homework . Eric was different , he used to study in Junior's elementary earlier . Students , teachers and environment had been different there , homework was not his top priority and rules were not the barriers for his world. His parents thought education was better at Hamerton than Junior's elementary , and yes they were right.
As they say , with high education comes bigger responsibilities .......... but that's what they think , not the children. No one care what children want or think , all they want is an obedient child who can follow their instructions and become what they want him to become , grow up as they want him to grow up , think as they want him to think and live as they want him to live .
But that's life as they know it...........
