not buying it for a second.....you have to stop her. Hitting her back may not be an answer, fine.....I'm great with that. However, you assuming that it will get worse if you tell really freaks me out. It will put a stop to it. How much trouble do you think she will get in? She could get expelled. Schools have a no tolerance policy and she will be gone, and then through at home. I highly doubt she will bother you again. Not to mention the legal factor here.....your parents could sue hers....people who work together can sue for harassment, students can too now....there is no reason good enough to NOT put a stop to this. Maybe if you tell, then you can go to another school, don't say you can't. Seattle is huge....you may not like to tell people what is happening, but I can darn near guarantee that if you tell the folks at church, they can help in keeping you protected. It is your choice, no one can do this for you, but if you want it to stop and hitting back in self defense isn't an option, then girl, quit playin....TELL SOMEONE really, please tell someone. You don't have to put up with her abuse.
