Unexpected Romance The topic for this contest is: Unexpected Romance. For poetry or prose. The story brings two people together, two people who don't necessarily realize that they belong together but the audience is rooting for them.
Your story left me with mixed emotions. I find bullying distressing - the pack picks out someone different to torment, usually the closest available nerd or geek (this is too close for comfort for me at the moment - my friend's son tried to commit suicide because of school bullying).
Anyway, putting my personal feelings aside about your topic, it is the most original use of the prompt line that I've read so far in the contest and you've set the classroom scene well - buzzing of bees spreading mischief rather than industriously working.
This is a very clever and humorous use of the sentence that starts the story. The more obvious direction would be a crime thriller, but yours is more interesting.
The buzzing bees imagery is perfect.
Just a recommendation to improve the rhythm of one of the sentences:
"... he was hanging on to every word of the teacher..." would read more smoothly if changed to "... he was hanging on to the teacher's every word ..." In the same sentence, what would be notes that are not factual?
Towards the end, 'head' should be 'heads'.
