You tried to recover from the slight bout of humiliation, taking a deep breath, smoothing over the short tattered crop top-shorts combo stretched so tightly across your body.

“Uhh… Well…” She turned to the child “My dearest, do you feel threatened.” The young boy choked back tears as he began to speak.
“Y-yes” He said quietly.
“Pardon me?” She replied before continuing in a more urgent tone. “Make it clear for everyone darling.” This caused him to nod his head, subtly, yet enough for the classroom to see; head still lowered, eyes low to the ground, you could see the young child shaking.
Your attention was broken once again, by the older woman. “And that is a dockable offence! From now on, you will be receiving only 20% of your paycheck, if you don’t like it, take it up with the principle.” She said before promptly leaving.
“Wait… What!” You were absolutely elated and when she left, the puppies began to rally around your feet yet again. Your heart sunk in your chest as you pondered what you were going to do.
