The girl sat at the front of her class and her eyes never strayed from the board. She loved everything that had to do with biology. To her, it was more than the irritating labs and the annoying scientific equations of biochemistry that everyone else saw. It was beautiful. She loved how all living things were connected, how they all are put together like puzzle pieces to maintain a proper ecosystem.

Her smile then loses its life like the dead frog sitting before her. She begins to cry.
