As lunch period started I knew I had to call Cierra. I walked out of the classroom in frustration and anger. I picked up my phone and called Cierra.
“Cierra, I can’t hang out tonight” I explain.
“What why?” She asked.
“My mom just texted me, I’m going to a family dinner” I lied trying to sound annoyed,
“Great, now I have to stay home with my annoying family.” She said frustrated.
“I’m so sorry, I’ll make it up to you.” I said, I knew if I said this it would remove the tension between us. But I knew I would never make up for it.
“Whatever see you later” She sighed.
“Ok. Bye Cierra.” I gulped.
“Bye” She said as I hung up the phone. I was so disappointed in myself for lying to my best friend. If only I could stick up for myself and not let my idiotic boyfriend walk all over me like a doormat. When I hung up I left and sat at my lunch table, sitting at that table was Ethan and all of his stupid jock friends. When I sat down, they started to laugh and whisper to each other. It seemed like they were planning something for the party. I heard Ethan trying to quiet down his friends. I knew that whatever bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to me.
“Ethan what are you talking about?” I ask trying to not sound annoyed.
“Nothing babe don’t worry about it.” I knew that if I tried too hard to get the answers from him it would just end in a fight, I was not in the mood to argue with him so I tried hard to ignore it but it was really hard when they would whisper and laugh at me.
I starting to get hungry. I was just about to leave the table to buy some food, when a hand shot up and grabbed me by the arm.
“Where are you going?” Ethan asked.
“I’m going to buy my lunch. Let go of me!” I looked down and saw my arm start to turn red as he was using all the strength he had to get me to stay.
“you aren’t buying food, not with my money” He said in a low tone.
“This is money from my wallet.”” I said trying hard to stay calm.
“No, I need this for my lunch.” He yelled.
“I don’t care, I brought the money myself.” He held onto my wrist gripping it tighter and tighter. I knew he wanted me to give it to him by force. But I was not doing this for him. He always used this method to get what he wanted. But after getting me to cancel plans with Cierra, he was not going to win this time. He held onto my wrist tight until it felt numb. I slowly lost circulation and felt weak. he could see in my eyes that I was losing. He grabbed the five dollars from my hand. My wrist along with my entire body fell to the ground. I felt someone grab me from behind to soften the landing. I turn around and see a kind, friendly face. It was Kye, I remembered seeing him in my history class, He jumped up and walked over to Ethan.
“Hey, give that money back right now.” He yelled. Ethan turned around and stared at him straight in the face, Ethan’s eyes widen and before I knew it. Kye punched him directly in the nose.
