In “The Bully” the meanest girl in school finds her match.
Mt. Triumph Elementary School basks in the spotlight of being among the community’s greatest prides. Nestled in a twenty-acre piece of land, the school has all the facilities and competent teachers, ensuring that its students get the highest quality of education. The school is also involved in improving the students’ artistic talents, athletic skills, and character, so majority of the children are well-behaved, and the others are trainable. Things would have been great, if not for the school’s most troublesome student.
Artela is fearless and loves to be feared. Being the only girl among seven siblings, her brothers taught her to be tough, strong, and intimidating. No one dares to mess with Artela for fear of getting beaten by her brothers who are rumored to be gang members. At school, Artela has no friends, but she could care less; she does not need a friend to play and have fun with. She can have as much fun in making other’s miserable, especially Carmen and Vandie.
Carmen and Vandie are best friends and Artela’s classmates. Carmen considers Artela her archenemy because the bully likes to pick on Carmen and her friend. Artela does a number of things to torment Carmen because she never fights back. However, the time comes when Carmen decides to take a stand against Artela. Taken aback by Carmen’s sudden outburst, Artela promises to stop bothering Carmen and Vandie, as well as the other students. Artela never tells the truth.
