1. She Ditched Me

Rachel

My eyes snap open as I realize that it is 6:50. Late. Again. Ugh. Its not like I want to go to school. But mom says if I don't want to end up like dad, (and trust me, I don't) then I should go to school and get an education. Wow I normally don't think this hard on Monday mornings. I slip on some jeans and a t-shirt, most of what my closet consists of, and run into the kitchen. I pass my step dad's bedroom and he is asleep. As usual. I try to go out the door undetected, but my mom was standing guard over the door. "That is what you're wearing?" mom says. "We don't want anyone to think that I actually care about my appearance, now do we?" I say sarcastically. "Watch the attitude young lady!" mom snaps. I brush past her and slip out the door. I live a couple blocks away from school so I am permitted to walk to school. I actually like walking to school. I get to walk through a pretty view of willow trees as I pass our neighbor's houses. It's the getting to school that I don't like. I have 2 friends, Anna and Chloe. We have been inseparable since 3rd grade. But I have a lot more enemies than friends. Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall and Zayn to name a few. They call me things, but I try to ignore them and move on, but their words haunt me. Its hard, but I get by with Chloe and Anna. I reach school in time to go to my locker and have time to spare. I met up with Anna at the front doors where she was talking to Max, her boyfriend. She was telling me about how she and Max took a walk to the creek on Saturday and how Max, being the clutz that he was, fell in. Just as she was getting to the good part, who comes up to us but Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis, and Zayn. "Oh my god! What died on your head?" Harry asks, clearly talking about my dirty blonde hair. "Just ignore them, Rach." Anna whispers to me. We try to slip past them but they block our path. "Just where do you think you're going?" Zayn says with a cocky smile on his face. All of a sudden the bell rings. "Gotta go to English, see you." Anna says. I can't believe it. She ditched me. I can't do anything about it! The hallway clears and soon enough we are the only people in it. I sigh. I just have to take what is coming for me. I back up against the wall. Louis steps forward. "Good, I was waiting for her to leave. Now it's just us." God, I wish they would just leave me alone! "Let's get this over with then." I say. "If you say so." Louis adds. He punched me in the face so fast I had no time to react. Harry joined him and kneed me in the stomach. He knocked the wind out of me so I couldn't say anything, let alone cry for help. Someone kicked me to the ground, but I wasn't sure who. A door opened and a teacher came out of a nearby classroom. The boys walked away, and seemed as innocent as usual, leaving me on the floor.
