2. The beat up
Mackenzie's POV: School was finally over for the day. No more feeling self conscious. I grabbed my bike off the bicycle rack and started to head home. My house is about 3 miles away from Lenimar High. There was a bus I could take, but I'd rather go home peacefully than go on a nearly full bus with shouting freshmen. I was about a quarter way to my house until I heard a sound behind me. "Hmm...maybe just some wild animals in the forest..." I thought. It didn't worry me too much because I know that if you don't harm them the animals, they wont harm you. Plus, they are so cute..
"Well hello Kenzie..." someone said,
"The LOSER!" Another person added. They were both laughing fakely. I turned around slowly, to my surprise, it was the two girls who always threatened me that they are going to beat me up. But I never took it too seriously...but it looks like they were not joking about that. I started to panic. "What do you want?" I yelled while backing away. I didn't see what was behind me, so I tripped over a rock. Ugh, I'm so stupid. I tumbled on the floor, I didn't bother getting up because their legs were right near my face, and if I stood up, I would predict that they would lay a hand on me. I was extremely scared, I was shaking.
"Remember that time we said that 'if you don't just hang yourself, we would just beat you up everyday until you do'?" One of the girls said. Just then the girl beside her kicked me in the stomach. It wasn't just any kick. It was a really painful kick. I felt like throwing up. Just then, a punch came and it hit me right in the face.I was really hurt by now. They kept on punching me and kicking me. Soon, I had blood all over my face and clothes. I was devastated. I cant go home like this! They just laughed and walked away. What do I do?! I started to cry.
