Camilla found Hector crying in the library, with a heavy book sitting open in his lap.

"What's wrong?" she asked, thinking that perhaps he'd been reading a tragic story and become overwhelmed with emotion himself.

"The dictionary is being mean to me," he replied, sniffling and wiping his eyes.

She just stared at him for a few long moments as she tried to process that statement. In the end, she gave up and asked, "What?"

He silently handed her the book and pointed out a specific line.

hector. noun: a blustering, domineering person; a bully. verb: to torment; to bully.
