Ten minutes until the end of recess and I decided to return to class… I finished walking up the forty something steps. I opened the transparent door to access the hallway and turned left…It was strange.. I went into my class (1A) and ….This is Juan Diego Calzada the faggot’s pad…the pad belonged to one of my classmates, stained with red ink from a pen… I sat in my chair without saying a word, while my classmate walked in… They all looked at me… Some with the desire to protect me…others, hahahaha. Bell… The grammar teacher arrived and she also saw it… She informed the director for us to go to his office..  That same day we knew who had done it… while leaving the last class I recall that the culprits had pushed me down the forty something stairs…I fell …. And fell again … It was the year 1986…. I was 14 years old… I had no friends…I was a Spice Girl fan to aliviate my solitude… During that time, I discovered that to survive, I would convert my suffering in art…
