Students are being threatened by other students if they don't conform to the wave. Mr. Ross notices that Robert is following him. Robert asks Mr. Ross if he can be his bodyguard. “You’re the leader, Mr. Ross,” Robert says. “I can’t let anything happen to you” (83).Mr. Ross feels uncomfortable with the request. However, he is impressed by the change that has come over Robert, who used to be shy and unhappy. The wave is turning into something that is very tense and unhealthy.
