Shoes on a edge

Author – Alexander

Yesterday at school we had to change rooms for the next lesson. Our school has 3 floors and we had to go from groundfloor to the second floor. When we walked towards the stairs one of my classmates stepped on my left heel and made my shoe come off. He gave me a push and picked up my shoe and ran up the stairs. When I came to the stairs I saw him half way the stairs trying to throw my shoe up an edge in the wall. Before I could do or say anything he managed to put it up there. He and a few other guys were laughing as I walked up the stairs. When I came up there I realized I couldn”t reach it because the edge was about 10ft high. All the others walked by and laughed at me and I asked them to help me get it down. Nobody responded and after a short time the guy who picked my shoe offered to help me. He came to me and foulded his hands together like a step and he said here stand on my hands so you can reach your shoe. Automatically I stepped up with my right foot and when he lifted me up I got out of balance and fell back. With my left foot on the ground and my hands to the wall I was balancing not to fall down and in the meantime the guy held on to my foot. He looked at me and grinned and I thought oh no he will not…. But it already happened and he took my right shoe off. I shouted no come on give me my shoe back but he ran up the next stairs and the few guys waiting were only laughing. There I was in my dark blue socks, one shoe unreachable and the other I didn”t know. After a few seconds this guy comes back at the top of the stairs empty handed and was laughing and said good luck with retrieving your shoes and he and the other guys left. When I walked up the next stairs to the second floor I could see my right shoe also on the same kind of edge. I knew now I couldn”t reach them and the bell rang for the next lesson and I had to hurry to the classroom. When I walked in most of the class was laughing and I felt little embarrassed and I sat down at my table. I had to follow five more lessons and change rooms three times and in lunchbreak I tried to find the janitor to help me with my shoes but I couldn”t find him. After the last lesson I walked to the stairs where my shoes should be but to my surprise they were gone. I got the shivers and was afraid I had to go home shoeless. I tried to find the janitor again and after a walk through half the school and asking several teachers I found him standing outside at the bicycle shed. He was helping another student with the lock of his bike. I walked towards him and noticed the ground was still a little moist from rain the day before. I asked the janitor if he took the shoes off the edge, he looked at me and said no I didn”t take no shoes off an edge but maybe somebody else did and brought them to the lost and found office. I walked back into the school to the lost and found office but I didn”t see any shoes. I tried the door but it was locked. A teacher walking by said the lost and found will be open tomorrow he had to leave early today. I sighed and walked towards the lockers to get my jacket and go home. I had to go with the bus and people were watching me. I tried to hide my feet but that was no success. At the end it felt a little exciting and today I got my shoes back, they were found in a trash bin….

In the library

Author – Alexander

Marc and me were in the public library today because Marc had to find something. He asked me to come along so he didn’t had to go alone. When we arrived Marc went to look for his books and I picked some comic book and went to the reading tables. I sat down and I stretched and crossed my legs. At these tables you can not see your neighbor or the one whose sitting opposite. I started reading my book and after some time I felt something touching my feet. I looked under the table and saw somebody’s feet, I thought they were Marc’s because the shoes were about the same as his. Then after some time he touched my feet again and I thought he wanted to play footsie or something so I played along. After some time I felt him clamping his feet around my right shoe, that was the one on top of my left leg. Then he started slowly pulling on that shoe and I felt it coming off my foot. I struggled a little but it was too lose and seconds later it was off my foot. I looked under the table again and saw my shoe on his side out of my reach. He came back with his feet and started playing again. Now I tried to get a hold on one of his shoes and I thought I had one and started pulling it but it didn’t come off his foot. After some wigling he got a hold on my left shoe and again he started pulling it slowly off my foot. I tried to not let it happen but I could not hold on to that shoe either and there I was in my white socked feet. We fooled around with our feet a liitle while and in the meantime I looked for my sneakers but they were still out of reach. Then suddenly it stopped and I felt with my feet for my sneakers but I didn’t feel anything, I llooked under the table again and the floor was empty. I thought that Marc was pranking me so I waited for him. After some time Marc came to me and said I’m finished, we can go home now. I started laughing and said as I looked at him, okay but first give me my sneakers… Marc looked at me and said, what are you talking about? I don’t have your sneakers. I laughed again and said okay so where did you hide them? He looked at my feet and said again I don’t have them. Then I looked at his feet and noticed he wore other shoes than the one’s I saw before under the table. I got the shivers and asked him if he didn’t sat opposite of me . He said no and I got worried. He asked what I did and I explained that I thought he was sitting there and told him what happened. He said laughing that’s a nice idea for the next time but I think you have a problem now and I said yes I believe so too. I got up and we walked towards the excit and I could see some people looking at me. Outside we got on our bycicles and went home. The first few miles I felt embarrassed but along the way I kinda liked it….
