16. Murder

 

It really is true. It’s all true. I did kill someone and it’s why I fight. It’s why I do what I do here and it’s why I win. It’s why I have to be the best…

 

FLASHBACK

“Okay, this is your first fight against someone undefeated- are you ready?” Coach Mike asked me.

“I’ve never been more ready in my life.” I said, jumping up and down, getting in the zone.

“You can do this.”

“GIRLS, TO THE CENTER!” The ref yelled. We walked to the center and the girl flashed me a genuine smile. No. Don’t fucking smile at me. “FIGHT!”

This girl was different. This girl was here because she wanted to be here. I was here to bail my brothers out of jail and to pay for my parent’s funeral. I was only here for this fight and to get the money I needed, I just needed to beat this one girl and I would be set. I was driven.

I knocked her in the head over and over again, pummeling her to the ground. When I saw blood, I didn’t stop. I kept going, making sure she wasn’t going to get back up when I was through with her until the end of the fight. I needed the money. I needed this.

The next thing I knew, I was being yanked off the girl. She was bleeding from every possible part of her body. I suddenly had a very bad feeling in my stomach. When everyone turned to me, I knew…I knew I had killed her. The only good thing was no one was going to call the cops because this was illegal. This whole fight was illegal. I just murdered someone…and I was off the hook.

Ever since then…I’ve been fighting in honor of the girl who was undefeated until she died. I was going to fight until I died.
