A short story…
Scared of being ridiculed by other kids at school, she stalled before running out of the house. She did not want to wear a skirt with sweat pants underneath because it looked ridiculous and she was already being picked on because of her chipped teeth. “Dad, why do I have to wear this?” she asked before leaving the house. His response had a usual tone of sternnes which meant that he was in charge. His reason had been communicated before… “Girls are not supposed to show their legs” was mentioned the last time so she already knew his reason why.
Sure enough, as soon as she got to school, the kids started laughing at her because she was wearing something that looked aweful. She was the only girl in school to dress that way. She cried and then carried on with her day. Lucky for her, she had made friends with some other girls who had similar stories of their own. Two of them were double her size and one came from a broken home. The four girls made a pact at an early age to always stick together.
