The girl, Angel, jerks her hand out of my grasp once we're in the hall way. " Why did you do that?" she asks furiously as tears streak her face. I put my hands on my hips, " What? Are you going to let him bully you for the rest of your life?" She doesn't answer. I soften my tone. Poor girl. All the cases with bullying made the victims too scared to defend against the bully.
I take her hands. " You don't have to live with it. I'll be your friend and I'll protect you. I promise. That Leo dude is a total jerk. Stop doing what he says." Angel pulls her hands away, " Yeah right. Just leave me alone. You don't understand what it's like." With that she runs off. I sigh. Yeah, I was definitely making my day more worse. Now I probably had Leo as my enemy.
"Heya!" I turn around to see Dread and Laurence. "That was like awesome!" Dread exclaims, giving me a thumbs up. " The new girl fights it out with the school's bully!" Laurence contridicts his friend. " T-that was foolish. Leo will kill you." " I had to do something," I retort, " he was clearly tormenting her!" Dread nods in agreement, " Yes, yes he was." I glare at them, " And besides, why hasn't anyone done anything to help her?"
The two suddenly look away, feeling guilty. " Well..." Dread begins. " N-nobody defies Leo. He-he's the scariest person you''ll ever meet," Laurence explains. I feel a small jolt of fear, but ignore it. " Well I don't care." Dread grabs my shoulders, " You don't understand! He's a pshyco! Last year he made a kid commit suicide! Then he made another kid go mental. Then he-" I cut him off, " Okay! I get it. I'm in trouble." " Of course you are!" says Dread. Laurence smiles weakly at me, " B-b-b-but don't w-worry. I-I'll protect you. No matter what." His words aren't very convincing. Dread shakes his head at me, " I'm only doing this to protect Laurence."
" You're so dead." I was in the middle of taking notes for English when the guy behind me said that. I face him, " Uh I know that." He was an emo kid with very pale skin, black lipstick, long jet black hair, black clothes, and a whole bunch of ear piercings. Maybe goth. I'm not sure. He tilts his head to the left, " You want to commit suicide with me? Save ya the trouble of having Leo do it instead." Was he being sarcastic or serious? " No thanks," I hiss and turn back around. He pokes my back with a pencil, " How about drowning?" I exhale, ignoring him. " Something less painful? How about taking a whole bunch of drugs?" " I said No!" I exclaim.
Mrs. Hilt turns around, " Do you have something to say Miss Lechun?" I slouch a bit, " No. Sorry." Mrs. Hilt stares at me for a second then goes back to lecturing. I glare back at the emo/goth kid. " Thanks alot." He rolls his eyes, " Sheesh, ya can't take a joke? A little uptight aren't ya?"
I sigh. Why oh why was I being plagued by guys today? Then it occurred to me. I had almost forgot about it. Could it be? Did the " Love Game" already start? I shake my head. No way. Laurence and Dread is a possibility, but Leo and this emo/goth kid? Noooooo waaaaay.
