This is the first short story of a collection of fictional accounts about different people of different ages co-living and, at times, co-surviving, side-by-side in formal educational settings. This story is about two children who find themselves in an unprovoked stand-off against each other on a regular school day.
Nobody, except probably for his classmates, knew The Ram's name. He was a secondary school student, probably about fourteen years of age. He was an average child in every way: an average-build, average height, average mental capacity. The only thing that was above-average in him was his aggression. He was probably regularly beaten by his own parents, maybe by his classmates, maybe even by teachers at school on an occasion or two. That built-up aggression inside him was looking for a way out. It probably was finding its way out in things he broke and immediately got punished for that. As a result of the latter, the anger would only build up more inside him.
