He had gotten expelled from his old school, then he went to a school in California Appleton High and met annoying, yet unbearably loveable Jennifer Lancer. She shows him how to let go of his past and give up on thinking he'll do it again.


9. Jennifer

I was running away from Zayn up the staircase, when suddenly someone grabbed my wrist. I turned, expecting it to be him, but it turned out to be Damion, my abusive ex-boyfriend. I gasped and felt fear run through me, "Damion, let me go." I said, trying to be calm. He hasn't bothered me since I broke up with him, so I was wondering why he was playing this game again.

He laughed as I swallowed, "Oh, Jenny..." he trailed off as he ran his finger down the side of my face. I tensed to keep from shaking. He smiled, "I see you're still aware of your place in our relationship." he said.

I shook my head, "We have no relationship. Now leave me alone, Damion. I swear I WILL call the cops this time." when I had broken up with him I threatened to call the police, but he begged me not to. I didn't.

He cupped my cheek and said, "No you won't." 

I nodded, frightened, "Yeah, Damion, you have no idea. I swear I will." I looked around to see if anyone was close, silently hoping Zayn was still nearby. "When did you get here?"

He smiled, "I was here while I saw you with that new guy... you definitely didn't waste time getting to him, did you?" he asked.

I saw a shadow coming from the hallway above the staircase behind Damion. I sucked in a breath, praying he wouldn't notice. When the shadow got closer, I saw Angela in the stairwell. She looked at Damion, then at me, and her eyes narrowed and her nose scrunched, she wasn't only angry. She was ready to start a fight. Something I have only seen once in a lifetime when Jacob Miller had tried to rape Mayla, she had him pinned and had dislocated his shoulder and broke a few of his ribs.

She bolted down the staircase and saw that he was pressing me against the wall and he was touching my face. She said, "What's going on here?" louder than I had ever heard her sweet voice. 

He smiled and stepped back from me, walking towards Angie. It was my turn to get angry, "What do you want, Damion."

He turned and said, "Oh I think you know what I want, baby."

Then, suddenly- and surprisingly- Zayn was right next to me, in front of Damion. "I think I do, too." he said, po'd.

Angela took his focus on Zayn as an advantage as she jumped up on his back and grabbed his arm, twisting it into a boomerang shape and pulling so his hand was in between his shoulder blades. She wrapped her leg around his waist and slammed her heel in between his legs. He was struggling before, and he let out a scream and fell on the ground. She let go of his hand and put her forearm on his neck, placing her wrist in the crook of her other elbow and squeezing. He gasped and scratched at her arm.

She said, "Never touch her again, or I swear I will murder you." she squeezed harder and I saw his eyes roll back as she let go of his neck and stood up. I glanced at Zayn, who stood staring open mouthed at Angie. She smiled cheekily at him then looked at me, pointing her index finger at me, "Why the heck were you with him in the first place? Do you have memory loss or something? Does your brain tell you he is good or something?" 

Zayn snapped his jaw up and said, "Wait what did he do to her?"

She looked down and I looked up, not ready to share this with someone who I just met. But you did kiss him twice, I thought. I looked from one to the other and Angela touched my arm, "It's okay." she stepped over to him and closer to me. 

I looked down at Damion, "Can we leave though?" I asked. Angie nodded and took my hand in hers. 

"Come on." she said, tears gathering in her own eyes. When we reached the doorway she dropped my hand, "You two go along, I'll meet you in the back room." she said. I nodded and heard her speed up the staircase. I heard her grunt and then I heard a snap. I gasped, thinking it was her fragile bones, but I ran in and saw that she had took his wrist and elbow in her hands and kicked the middle with her heel. Ouch.
