I called & nobody toàn thân replied. I thought khổng lồ myself that maybe they had gone downstairs so I went down again looking for them. 

A while later, I heard that my friends were punished by my teacher for messing around too loud. I felt lucky that I wasn’t with them in the first place. All of a sudden, my friover asked me why I didn’t get punished even though I was also there messing around with them. I was shocked and told them that I was downstairs waiting for them & not involved in their playful activities.

My frikết thúc insisted that I was also there with them. Another friover even said that she heard me screaming và having fun, which was absolutely not true. After that incident, I never went to that block again.”
