James really was struggling. He had been at the academy for three months now, doing well in classes but feeling like a failure. His other friends from primary school had managed to make new friends, James for some reason, couldn't. He was painfully shy, it seemed to be getting worse, it was humiliating. There was a massive popular group now too, it seems every popular group had merged into one mega popular group, roughly 100 of them. He had his close, small group however and there was no way they were going to get away with intimidating them, no way.
