"get off of me, you sick creep!" i yelled as i fought the, much stronger than me, man off. he still pushed himself on top of me. "Kalin! help me! God, kalin please!" i begged knowing he was nowhere near me. "GET OFF OF ME" i screamed louder.

"shut up!" the man growled as he slammed his fist into my jaw. i screamed in pure pain as i threw my hands up to cover my jaw.

"HEY! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! GET OFF HER!" i heard someone yelling and then footsteps getting closer. the heavy man jerked up from me and took off running. i squirmed as i still had my hands covering my jaw. the other guy came running up to me and picked me up, carrying me out of the alleyway.

"shelby, i'm so sorry" kalin repeated for the hundredth time that night as he laid in bed beside me. i couldn't answer. my jaw was still damaged. the doctor instructed that all foods needed to be liquified and to limit my jaw movement. i looked up with him with confused eyes. "I should have been there for you. i promise you i will never let anything happen to you again." he said, holding my hand like we've done since we were little. i sighed and leaned up and over him to get the whiteboard and marker and started writing.

'you couldn't have known. i had God with me. it's okay. i would say i forgive you but you haven't done anything' and handed it to him. i watched as he read it, examining his facial expressions. he closed his eyes and i knew in that moment he was praying and thanking God.

i jerked up from bed with my entire body shaking and sweating. 'it was only a nightmare, shelby' i kept repeating to myself. i looked over at the clock. one in the morning. knowing there was no way of sleeping anytime soon i got up, put my vans on, and took off out the door.
