Nope.  I do agree that real-life bullying is often worse than cyberbullying, though, so I agree with your point. Not all bullies would go up to someone and start spewing out hurtful stuff without thinking about it, Um, what? I've been called terrible things by real life bullies. Where was their "think before I say it?" so it does really depend on the bully/cyberbully and the method they use.Nope.

    Before I get started with the prologue I just want to  let you guys know this has not been completely edited yet. I'm going to be posting them in chapters/sections. Prologue The air was still crisp, though the explosion had happened weeks ago. But then again, nothing seemed like it was a few weeks ago. The explosion had come out of nowhere; nobody really knew what happened. Some say somebody left their stove on. Others say somebody made it happen on purpose. I don’t know what to believe, I don’t even know if anyone else is alive. All I know is that my parents died in the explosion. I don’t know if I have any sibling, aunts, uncles. I’m surprised I’m alive, my clothes are still singed from the fire. I haven’t found any supplies. I don’t even know which way I’m supposed to go. I doubt you would want to know my name, but in case you were wondering it’s Blake...Blake Hensworth.
