Turing, she saw some of the girls and boys from her new school, pointing and sneering at her obviously awkward tries and felt herself turning red.
She turned to quickly finish the game, grabbing the dart and hurling it towards a balloon and jumped as there was a loud pop, which made her gain self-confidence and she threw once again and was elated at the two more pops and happily claimed her prize, feeling even more ecstatic as she noticed the sneers go soft and her haughty classmates scowling.

Mike liked Lisa from the minute she joined school, as she was kind and real, unlike most of the other students in class but the fear of peer pressure stopped him making friends with her.
