The help that finally came

My friend used to hurt himself, I had noticed it, but not really thought much of it. Well one day he came in and the cuts were still bleeding. He lied to the teacher and told her it was his puppy, then he went to the nurse and after thinking about it for about 5 minutes, I got up and asked the teacher if I could talk to her in the hallway. She said sure of course. I told her that I didn’t think the cuts were from his puppy, and she said yeah, she said they didn’t really look like it and then I told her he had been doing it for a while, she said she would tell him who said something. He went home that day. He came in the next day and asked who it was and I looked at him and said I don’t know. Someone did tell him after about a month I was afraid he would be mad. Well the other day he came up to me and said thank you it made my day. So please, if you’re reading this, speak up for someone before it’s too late.
