Goody Two-Shoes Come Undone

Meryl sat in the corridor leading to the principal’s office, on a plastic chair along with two other students. One whose face was not visible, as it was buried in her hands along with a lake of tears & the other who was banging his fist into the wall in an angry manner. Meryl sat quite the contrary to the other two, with a broad grin across her face and her legs swinging back & forth in a cheery way. She loved coming here.

What was it she had done?
