Part 1 of..something?

February 7, 2019


I have to avoid Alex. I'm not going to disappoint Robbie again. So I walk with my head down and my headphones cranked as high as possible. Then I see a shadow fall upon me. "Hey C-C-Connor!"

Alex had found me. For a tenth grader, he was humongous. He was built like a hippo and a elephant cross-breed. His body covered with hair, ironically he is bald. He glares down at me smiling, the same way a snake would smile at its prey before gobbling it down in one bite.

"G-g-go away Alex."
"I j-j-just want to play!"

And then the first punch comes hurling at my gut. I fall my headphones lay broken in a heap next to my broken body. I try to get up but I fall again.

"You are a joke Connor, just stay there on the floor like all the other useless junk."

I try to get up again, but that was probably a bad decision. he pulls me to end of the hall and trashes me up. I could feel my nose bleeding actually strike that out I couldn't feel anything. 

"W-w-who's going to save you Connor? Robbie? Your imaginary boyfriend?
