Finally. The school bell rang loud and shrill, releasing the bored high school students at 3: 05. With all of the others, Spencer poured out of the large double glass front doors, relieved to be free of the school for another day. Adjusting his backpack weighed down with homework, he began the short walk home in the cold Winter. It was already dark outside thanks to the Winter hours, the Sun having long since retreated past the horizon, shrouded the city in early darkness, something that pretty much everyone hated, including Spencer. As he walked, his hands shoved deep into his jean pockets, he was suddenly shoved to the ground by a boy he recognized, dashing his way passed after his friend, laughing. Spencer frowned, glaring at the kid. Really, didn't he get tormented enough in school? With what dignity Spencer had left, he hoisted himself to his feet, brushing off himself and his backpack, his green eyes dark and unreadable.
