13. The fight

“I’ll be back in a bit.” I said, leaving the kitchen swiftly before Robin can say a word.

I ran, faster than I have before towards the school, if I was lucky the kids would still be on the way home. I was a very lucky person. I walked towards the group of brats, slowly, confidently, fiercely. I walked very close towards them, and then stop dead in my tracks causing them all to stop abruptly as well.

“Do you think it’s funny messing with my little sister? Do you?” I yelled at the top of my lungs, restraining myself from launching myself at them. They looked startled, like deer’s in the headlights… Perfect. I felt the adrenaline rush through my veins, giving me the confidence to continue. No one spoke up.

“Not cracking the wise jokes now, are you?” I said, slightly pleased with myself. The boy at the front, who could only be described as the ring leader decided to talk

“Your mother was nothing! She left you and she killed her-” He didn’t get a chance to finish because before I knew it I was pulling him up by his neck and slamming him against the wall. Hard. I imagined myself squeezing his neck just a little bit harder, strangling him, the relief it would bring me. I was shocked that I could ever think anything as horrible like that but… I did. I dropped him to the ground in shock and scowled at him while he rubbed his neck.

“Don’t ever talk about my mother again. What makes you think that you’re any better than me or my sister? You’re nothing but a piece of dirt… Don’t even think about her again or I will hunt you down and who knows… maybe I won’t be able to control my actions and I’ll do more than just bruise your neck…” I said calmly, I spat on the ground narrowly missing the boy’s shoes.
