It's still the middle of summer school and knowing the back door of that building still haven't been covered by the security, I prepared to sneak in the next morning. I made sure my iPod's charged up so that I can record something that can help expose the suspicious activities. Knowing how the bullies may have been connected with what the principal could be hiding, I might as well try to find out what it is and why is he doing this.
Once I entered the building, I got hungry and went to the cafeteria to see what they have. They were serving Jell-O with pudding and some pies!
"That's unfair!" I mumbled.
Seriously they never served that in my high school!
I took the lunch tray from one of the students who wasn't looking and sat on an empty table at the back of the room. After finishing my lunch, I head out to the hallway to find the principal's office. Realizing that I have forgotten where the office is...
I decided to explore the entire hall way, knowing the office is somewhere in the first floor, it shouldn't be too difficult. I was right as I finally found his office about a second later, it helped that the principal's name is printed on the door.
"That was convenient!"
I slowly open the door and saw that no one's here. I quietly snuck in and hid from one desk to another until I found a massive bookshelf with a bust of Jesse Jackson right next to it. Wondering what these two things were doing in the office and why, I got tired and leaned on the bust...shifting it by accident. Suddenly the book shelf slowly opens up and there's a dark corridor right behind. Surprised, I quickly record it with my iPod as a proof.
I walked into the corridor and came upon a brightly lit room with shelves stocked with wines. That principal must have been even more wasted than the one at my high school, there's even a shelf filled with bottles of Dom Pérignon!
But then behind all those shelves, I heard someone talking.
I began to record the conversation with my iPod and heard this...
"What do you want us to do? Many of these guys have gone into hiding and Victor have disappeared for sometime, we're not going to hunt them down!"
"Yeah and besides, Victor used to belong to a gang, if we do find him, what if he calls up his old buddies?"
"Wait, is that the same Victor wh-"
"No, they're distant cousins though..."
"Can't you guys just shut up? We have many things to worry about, remember you guys are supposed to bully the bullied victims into silence so the reputation of the school will not be tarnished, my career is at stake!"
I recognize that voice, it's the principal's!
So that's what he's covering up...
After few minutes, I saved the recordings and put my iPod away. As I was ready to leave, I accidentally pushed the shelf and tried to hold it but...I was too late.
Everyone on the desk turned to look at me and the principal who recognized me yelled, "You!"
"Whoa oh!" I said before taking off.
"Get him!" he screamed.
I hid from one shelves to another and grabbed one of the bottles of champagne.
"Put that bottle down!" said one of the principal's hired thugs.
I start to shake the bottle.
"You better stop!"
The cork flew like a bullet and hits the thug right in the face, knocking him unconscious. As the foam starts flowing out of the bottle, the principal ran up in front of me and said, "You better not drink it!"
I took a huge gulp from the bottle.
"Okay, but you better not enjoy it!"
I made a sound to show that I was enjoying it.
"You bastard!" he yelled.
Rest of the thugs came toward me and I smashed the bottle on one of the guy's head. After making my way out of the corridor, I turned to leave the building when a familiar face arrived...that over sized security guard Omar!
He looked at me and said, "Your journey ends here, stop what you're doing and nobody gets hurt..."
Then couple of injured thugs came out of the office door.
"...from now on!" he finished.
Then the principal comes out and said, "Great job Omar, now finish him, finish him off!"
I took out my iPod and yelled, "Wait! I have a proof that this principal have been behind the wrongdoing this whole time!"
"What are you talking about?" said Omar.
"You have no proof, finish him Omar!" the principal yelled.
I turned on the iPod, select the video on the menu and then I showed it to Omar.
After few seconds, he turned to me and said, "Okay...why did you record yourself rubbing your nipple?"
I took a look at my iPod and realized my mistake, after almost fumbling it out of embarrassment, I exit out and went to the correct video.
"Now here, look at this and listen!" I said.
After few minutes, Omar then turned to the principal and said, "Is this true?"
The principal tried to explain the whole thing but instead he ended up sounding like he has a stuttering problem. Soon he points at Omar and said to his hired thugs, "Get him! Get him now!"
But the thugs were intimidated by Omar to the point that one of them pissed himself. Soon they turned to the principal and said, "No way man, I'm leaving!"
"Yeah, I remember I have chores to do!"
"I have something to do too, see ya!"
Then they all ran off.
"Guess the jig is up!" I said.
Then Omar walked up to the principal and said, "Is this why my son have been bullied? He was beaten to near death and you bastard have done nothing! The reason why I resigned my position as a police lieutenant to become a security so that I would make sure this wouldn't happen again, you're going to pay for what you have done you stupid son of a bitch!"
No, Omar didn't beat the crap out of the principal, he did reported what happened to the news and with the proof, the scandal resulted in the principal's resignation and the hired thugs turned themselves in. They were going to testify but the principal being who he is fessed up.
To make a long story short, the trial was scheduled shortly and it went pretty quickly.
Glad I didn't have to make an appearance on the trial although my iPod recording was used as an evidence. The principal was found guilty and will be behind bars for five years and even longer with the house arrest although they didn't state low long.
Knowing that this is over with, I got my iPod back and decided to go off telling my friends from the club about what happened by I wasn't able to find them however...something's wrong...I even went to check Victor's house and he's still not there.
It's a good thing his parents are out of town due to business trips, they should be concerned.
