She Picked On Him For Years In School, But He Finally Got His Revenge


How Could She Do This?

Anthony froze in his tracks, mortified. Was this some sick joke? How could she do this to him and in front of everyone?

A cocktail of embarrassment, fear, and anxiety washed over him. His head began to spin. He turned on his heels, anything to get away from the situation. He hoped this was the end of it. But it was only the beginning.

His Love For Fast Food

Antony Bayer had always been addicted to fast food. He couldn’t remember a time when fries, burgers, hot dogs, and pizzas didn’t take top priority in his life.

He loved them to the moon and back and ate them every single day. Although everyone around him tried to deter him from it, he didn’t listen. But something would happen down the line that would change his life forever.

Surviving School

Antony used to face a lot of backlashes and teasing at school. Kids, and even a few teachers, ridiculed his appearance, calling him names at every turn.

He tried to smile through the mean comments and name-calling, but deep inside, the pain was too much to bear. He had no idea that everything would go from bad to worse.

A Painful Existence

Antony spent his days bingeing on fast and junk foods. He’d start with meatball subs for breakfast before following up with tacos at mid-morning and pizzas at lunch. He’d have burgers in the evening and fried chicken for dinner.

He couldn’t help himself, especially when the comments at school cut as deep as a butcher’s knife. Eating was the only way he dealt with the pain. But although he felt utterly alone and unwanted, his lowest points were still ahead.

Prom was fast approaching, and many students across Antony’s school were gearing up for the event. Girls and boys peppered the school hall, nervously waiting to ask or to be asked to prom.

Antony floated past them as he’d always done. He didn’t care about prom and hadn’t even considered being at school when it took place. But then Molly, the most popular girl at school, suddenly slid before him in math class. He didn’t know what was in store for him.

The Prettiest Girl He’d Ever Seen

Molly was among the most beautiful girls Antony had ever seen. Her lips curled when she locked eyes with him, her Hollywood smile disarming him with such ease he had to take a step back.

“Will you go to the prom with me,” Molly asked? Her voice knocked all the air from Antony’s lungs. Was this really happening? “Erm, yeah, sure,” he quietly replied, still unsure what was happening. Little did he know what was barreling his way.

Getting Ready

Prom quickly arrived, and Antony got ready. He’d rented an excellent suit and even coughed up some cash for a limousine. He wanted to treat Molly like the queen she was and was ready to go the extra mile for her. After all, guys like him never got with girls like Molly.

Brimming with joy and excitement, he boarded his limo to Molly’s house. He didn’t know that his world was about to come crashing down.


Her House

Antony’s limo pulled into Molly’s driveway. His heart hammered his ribcage as he opened his door and stepped out. The house before him was massive, with manicured lawns and a water fountain.

Antony shook as he approached it. He still couldn’t believe Molly had chosen him over everyone in school. These last few days had been among the happiest in his life. He knocked on the massive door before him and nervously waited. The moment was finally here.

She’s Beautiful

The doors slid open, and Molly stepped out. Behind her were a few friends, the most popular girls and boys in school, grinning at Antony. Did they want to ride in his rented limo as well? Antony didn’t mind.

Molly was more beautiful than he’d ever seen her. Her dress perfectly matched her hair and makeup, and the radiance in her eyes promised him the day would be in his favor. But then she started giggling, her chuckle quickly turning into full-blown laughter.

Why Is She Laughing?

Antony didn’t understand what was happening. Did he have shaving cream on his face or perhaps a smudge on his face? He was about to ask when Molly cut him short.

“You’re just a big joke,” she sneered, laughing as she pointed at him. Her words were burning hot as they slashed through Antony. Tears wet his eyes, and he turned on his heels. But his nightmare was only beginning.

Getting Home

When Antony arrived home, he raided his parent’s fridge who were fortunately out. He wiped away the tears as he gulped down whatever he could get his hands on.

He knew that people would hear about the heartbreaking prank. He was for sure going to be laughing stock at school on Monday. And he was right.

Even More Embarrassment

Public Domain

When he arrived at school the following Monday, his classmates were laughing and retelling the story of him getting publicly rejected.

Thankfully, Antony knew that school was about to finish.. for good. He would never see these people again. He would never have to watch Molly, the girl who left him heartbroken and humiliated, laugh at him with her friends. But Antony was wrong.

300 Pounds

By the time school ended, Antony’s weight had reached nearly 300 pounds. With each slice of pizza and chocolate cake he devoured, he showed no signs of slowing down.

But a trip to the doctor was about to change his life completely.

Visiting The Doctor

What Antony originally thought was going to be a check-up doctor visit, ended up being a complete wake-up call. His doctor conducted tests and the results showed that Antony was about to get diabetes.

The words hit Antony like a ton of bricks. He knew he had to do something about it and make some drastic changes but was it too late?

Had To Make A Change

Public Domain

Antony had to quickly change his lifestyle and eating habits. It was quite literally a case of life or death. For the first time in his life, he went to the gym, and he started to eat healthy too.

It was hard at first, but eventually, Antony got into it. He started to educate himself on nutrition and foods and carefully watched what he ate. He knew it was going to be a long and tedious journey, but it would be worth it. He wasn’t going to give up. No way.

Changing His Life

Public Domain

Antony was working out pretty much every day and was eating healthy. He swapped pizzas for brown rice, chocolate for fruit – he was determined to prove everyone wrong.

Finally, his weight started to drop off. It was a long and tiring transformation but the results were worth it. He was oozing with confidence. Finally, he felt happy. But he had no idea a visitor from his past was about to come back into his life.

Completely Different

Public Domain

Five years passed and Antony looked completely different from the 17-year-old he once was. He had started a YouTube channel, in order to motivate people, using his experience to help change people’s lives.

He also gained a lot of female attention. Using the numerous dating apps out there, he received over 1000 matches! It was crazy. But Antony had no idea what was about to happen.

A Message

Public Domain

It was late in the afternoon and Antony had just finished a workout at his local gym. With endorphins pumped around his body, he headed home ready for an early night.

As he pulled into his driveway, his phone beeped – he had received a message. When he saw who the message was from he felt sick to his stomach.

It Was Molly

Public Domain

It was from Molly, the girl who humiliated him back at prom. How did she get his number? What did she want?

As he read the message he had flashbacks to that humiliating night 5 years ago. The night where Antony’s world fell apart. She had a nerve to message him.

Lost For Words

Public Domain

In the message, Molly apologized for what she did back in high school. But the message didn’t end there, no.

You see, she followed up her apology with an invitation for Antony to go on a date with her! Antony was lost for words. He wasn’t going to stand for this. No way.

Had To Make Her Feel The Same

Public Domain

Antony could remember how mortified he felt when Molly embarrassed him. He had never felt humiliation like it. He had no sympathy or time for her, he didn’t want to give her a second thought.

And what he did next left Molly just as humiliated as she made him, 5 years ago. She had it coming to her.

Forgive But Never Forget

Public Domain

You see, Antony completely ignored the text. He will forgive but he will never forget. This incredible man can now carry on living his life full of rightly-deserved happiness.

The bully who made his life a living hell will never hear from Antony again. And Antony was more than happy with that. But his story isn’t the only harrowing high school story.

A Quiet Kid


Jack was only seventeen when he got his heart ripped out of his chest in front of his peers. He had always been a quiet kid, sitting alone in the corner and minding his business.

But the pressure of prom got to him, and like Antony, he quickly bowed to its persuasive powers. But the aftermath would leave him a former shell of himself.

Jack Emerson


Jack Flint Emerson was like any high school senior looking to have a great time at school. He usually kept to himself, finding the quietness refreshing.

But even he could admit that the loneliness was sometimes suffocating. High school was almost over, and he had no meaningful memory of the experience. Looking to change this, he decided to do something he’d never done before.

Out Of His Comfort Zone


Jack started talking to people in his class and beyond. It took everything within him to break the waves of anxiety crashing against each other inside him. He needed friends, and this was the best way to do it.

It wasn’t long before he made the most unlikely of friends. One thing was clear: stepping out of his comfort zone was the best he had ever done. Or was it?

Meet Dahlia


Dahlia Davis was the lead in the school’s drama club. She was not only knowledgeable in the arts and regal in its performance, but she was beyond beautiful.

She was also quite funny, always wrenching bursts of laughter from Jack. It wasn’t long before the feelings of friendship within our protagonist changed into something else.

An Intoxicating Experience


As someone who’d survived most of his teenage years as a loner, Jack found having an intelligent and equally beautiful and fun girl show him attention as intoxicating.

He looked forward to seeing her every time he rode his bike to school. He even started dressing differently, ditching the dark clothes that usually helped him blend into crowds. For Dahlia, he’d be more vibrant. If only he knew what was ahead of him.

A Different Light


Weeks passed, with Jack and Dahlia’s friendship becoming stronger than ever. But unknown to Dahlia, Jack was already seeing her in a different light.

He wanted more and didn’t know how to handle the matter. With no close friends to discuss the issue, Jack found himself stuck between a rock and a hard place. But this would soon change.

Just A Nerd


Jack didn’t know how to open up to Dahlia. The two had been spending much time together, even going to movies and restaurants. Jack shared parts of himself no one knew, like his love for video games and artificial intelligence.

But even though Dahlia showed interest in his likes and hobbies, Jack knew they were just friends. He pondered the best way to approach his issue when the best solution presented itself. Prom! His lips curled with anticipation.

Please, Say Yes


Jack knew how popular Dahlia was. He had spent months next to her, learning each aspect of her life. He knew many boys and girls wanted to ask her to prom. They were all more attractive than him, and he wondered if he had a chance.

But Jack had been hanging out with Dahlia so much that he hoped she would say yes to him. They had so much in common and so much fun whenever they spent time together. But her answer would leave him devastated.

Don’t Waste Time


With prom just around the corner, Jack hurried to ask Dahlia if she could go with him. As the drama club head, she was pretty busy with prom preparations, and he had difficulty finding the perfect time to ask her.

But knowing that the more he waited, the more he risked other people beating him to the prize, Jack swallowed his fear and sought her out. His life was about to be turned upside down.

He Finds Her


He found Dahlia running through Friday’s logistics in the middle of the school gym. She had her hair in a messy knot, her sleeves rolled up, and a notepad in her hands. She was heading the prom operation.

She smiled when she saw him approach, the curve of her lips beating out every ounce of tension in his bones. “You never come here,” she exclaimed, rushing to greet Jack. “What’s up?”

A Full Hall


“I thought I’d come to see you,” Jack said in a low tone, feeling awkward at all the eyes staring at him. The hall was packed with band performers, basketball players, cheerleaders, and drama club members.

“Yeah,” Dahlia asked, her smile still holding firm. “What’s up?” “Prom is right around the corner,” Jack stammered, using a nervous laugh to mask the awkwardness in his tone. “It is,” Dahlia answered.

Go For It


“Do you wanna go with me?” Jack asked, fear and anxiety burning within him, his stomach churning with them, veins flooded with them.

Dahlia quirked a brow, stepping back. “Wait,” she mumbled. “You’re serious, aren’t you?” “I am,” Jack said quickly, trying to close the gap between them. But what happened next had him sprinting out of the gym.

She’s Disgusted


“Why would I do that?” Dahlia asked, her smile turning into a dripping leer before her face deformed with disgust. “Isn’t it enough that we’re friends? What more do you want?”

Her voice went higher as she continued speaking, snarring the attention of everyone in the gym. “Have you seen yourself?” she asked. “Someone like you doesn’t go out with someone like me! I could never, not in a trillion years, go out with a loser like you.”

Heartbroken And Humiliated


“Where is this coming from?” Jack wanted to ask, but the gym fell into laughter. He turned around and sped out, heartbroken and humiliated.

Like Antony, Jack didn’t bother attending prom that year. He burned all his colorful clothes and returned to his former self. But no matter how hard he tried to become invisible as he’d once been, he became a constant laughingstock.

Accept It


There was nothing Jack could do about the matter but accept it. Dahlia never talked to him again, even openly making fun of him whenever he was in the room. She told the school about his hobbies and likes, terming them stupid.

As it does, high school ended, and Jack went to college. But although he was miles away from his home, he couldn’t forget what Dahlia had done to him. He’d have his revenge.

Work On Yourself


But how do you make someone who did such a harrowing thing pay? Jack wondered. The only thing he could do was work on himself.

He started going to the gym, opened an online business, and worked hard in school. For four years, Jack worked hard, using the pain to build himself as he’d never before. As the final year of college swung by, he decided to return home finally.

A Changed Man


It had been four years since Jack came back home. He’d been spending his holidays at his grandparents’ place. But now he was back, changed in every way. He was tall and chiseled, with great hair and a wonderful smile.

He had an electric car and an impressive business portfolio, with enough money to put his parents in a new house. As he drove around his old neighborhood that weekend, who else should he meet but Dahlia, the woman who had humiliated him in front of everyone?

Driving In Town


Jack heard someone call his name from across the road. He was driving past an outdoor restaurant with his car’s window down and had stopped at a red light. He looked at the restaurant to see Dahlia smile at him.

He pulled the car into the restaurant’s lot and stepped out. But as he walked to her, he noticed something that made his heart swell.

He’s Amazing


Dahlia was smitten as she watched Jack approach. Her lips parted, and her eyes broadened. There was a look of confusion and blatant want on her face, and she didn’t even bother to hide it. The friends she was seated with, most of whom Jack recognized from his dark days in high school, were also gawking at him.

With confident strides, Jack approached them. But Dahlia couldn’t wait. She hurried to him, asking why he had disappeared for years without as little as a hello. She asked him if they could hang out sometime, maybe go on a date. This was Jack’s chance.

Look At This Wonderful Opportunity


Jack looked at Dahlia as she smiled before him. It had taken everything in him to pull himself from the depression he fell into after their last conversation. He’d been furious at first, then hurt and alone. But through it all, he promised to fight.

Now that she was the one asking him out, what would he do? He smiled, taking her hands in his. He wouldn’t squander this opportunity.

Remembering It All


Jack caressed Dahlia’s hands and gently patted them. He remembered all he’d been through and realized that the pain that had always been there didn’t exist anymore.

He remembered Dahlia’s speech at the gym and recalled thinking that saying no would have sufficed instead of embarrassing him like that. He’d forgiven what she’d done but couldn’t forget it.

Just Like Old Times


“I appreciate the invite,” he said casually, with a lingering smile. “But I have plans already. It was nice seeing you, though,” he added out of politeness and waved at her friends as he turned around.

But Dahlia rushed after him, “When will you be free,” she asked. “We can go to the movies just like in old times. Don’t you wanna spend time with me?” “No,” Jack answered and drove away.
