The Girl Who Danced14:00
It was my first class at Medical college.Too tired to walk,I dragged myself back to my dormitory.
Just finished clearing up my room so that I'm able to lay down for a bit.Changed from my formal clothes to a over-sized shirt and trousers.
A staff member came to all of us to announce,"The Senior students want to meet you all.Come down to the Dining Hall within 5 minutes."
Still wearing my informal clothes,and a buttoned up jacket with a scarf as the temperature was dropping rapidly..we all gathered and stood bare-feet as the Senior students sat,facing us.
The torture began.
They called us names...names that even a prostitute won't be able to bear.They jeered at us,mocked us...sexual...psychological...torture.
My name came...I stepped forward.They barred their teeth,saliva rolling down as hungry wolves...their eyes scanned my body...as if raping me even they were all girls,just like me.They mocked that I might be a "boy inside" for my knee-length shirt...my teeth clamped on my lips.It bled.
I didn't lower my eyes,I saw everything...everyone.They couldn't stand facing my eyes...they HAD to FORCE me to lower my eyes.
The guilty can't stand the Innocents.
I am a girl from the city...and a student with better result than all of them.So my punishment...I was ordered to dance.
My answer,"I don't dance."
Them,"You have to.Or all of you will have to suffer."
Me,"Play me a song"
We're all made to stand in the cold for 3 hours and 30 minutes,bare-feet.I didn't let one drop of tear escape my eyes.
All of them were called to the Dean's office the following day and punished.They had to apologize to us formally...but the complaint hasn't been withdrawn yet.Funnily enough,it wasn't ME who submitted the complaint.It's someone else with our unanimous support.
To the Bullies...you'll ALWAYS find that you'll be beaten.No matter how mighty you think you are.
But..I ask myself...these monsters will be doctors after 4years or so...what will happen then?
