When we got back to the hotel, Collin stared at me for a while. Every once in a while he would give me a smile.
"Something terrible happened to me in the 7th grade," he said. he faced the ground and rubbed his neck.
I went over and sat beside him. "It's ok, you can tell me."
He looked back up and turned around to face me. He kept eye contact with me. "In middle school, I had good friends. I was popular."
"I thought you said, you was a dork in school."
"In elementary school I was. In middle school, I started gaining a little more weight, since, I was super skinny in elementary school. I lost the glasses and got contacts. I started to talk more and I made friends." He smiled, but, his smile soon dropped. "But that all changed, when my grades started dropping. It was the 7th grade. My mom decided that I should have a tutor." (A/N: Warning starts now.) His expression turned into something I have never seen before on Collin. He was broken.
"You can tell me Collin. It's ok." I reassured him.
He turned away from me and stared at the wall. "My mom was a little late getting home and my dad was always on business trips. So, me and the tutor was alone. She was a good tutor and my grades was going up. Although, just because, she was a good tutor, doesn't mean she was a good person. She-. We were alone and-."
My expression turned cold. "Did she...rape you?" I asked. I already guessed it, but, I was hoping I was wrong.
He nodded. "I was embarrassed to tell you before." He chocked. "After that I shut out everyone. I wouldn't talk to anyone, but, I did tell my mom. She was supportive of me. She called the police, had her fired and she was arrested. I had a hard time trusting anyone, but, my family. When I got out of middle school. I started drinking really bad. That night haunted me everyday. I would drink and I felt like it was helping. But, it wasn't. I was getting addicted to it. Finally, I stopped. I decided it wasn't right for me to do that anymore. I started going to the gym. I would punch the punching bag, so, I got all the anger and hurt out of my system. I would do that everyday. I also, started lifting weights. I got built and I decided I liked to fight, so, at the age of 19, I opened up my own place. I never dated. I had one girlfriend in my whole life and I can't exactly call her my girlfriend, since, we dated in the 6th grade."
I 'awed' a little in this bit.
"She was my first kiss too." He smiled. "Anyway, I became uncomfortable around girls. I don't know why, I feel so comfortable around you. I feel like when you're around, all of the problems in the world disappear... I'm sorry that sounded really cheesy. I-"
I leaned in and kissed him passionately.
