Roman: *opening his locker*
Kim: Hey. *smiles*
Kim: About yesterday, I shouldn't have taken off like that. What I really meant to say was thank you, but I got...
Roman: I totally understand Kim, I shouldn't have kissed you and I apologized for it.
Kim: *looks to the ground* Yeah, why did you kiss me?
Roman: *looks kim in the eyes* Because I fell in love. *closes his locker and walks off*
Kim: *heart beating fast*
Dean: Well, I see you're into Roman. *touches his collarbone*
Kim: What goes between Roman and I have nothing to do with you Dean. Why do you bully me? Who else are you bullying!
Dean: *laughs* Believe it or not, but it's only you and you want to know why.
Kim: *angry* Why?
Dean: *angry tone* Because you're ugly!
Kim: *wants to cry*
Dean: *laughs* Actually, you're not ugly, it's because you're an easy target Kim. You don't know how to run, don't know how to call for help, go ask for help and that's what I like about you. You stay and stick with us, and that's what I love. I mean you can go and snitch us out and have us get suspended or whatever, but we don't want to be a tattle teller as seniors.
Kim: You're a pig!
Dean: *laughs* What?
Kim: I hate you! *attacks dean* I hate you so much!
Dean: Whoa! *trying to run away and trips*
Kim: *falls on top of dean*
Dean: Oh, I like this position, shouldn't we wait til afterschool though. *smiles*
Kim: *bites dean on the nose*
Kim: *gets off dean*
Dean: *sits up* You bitch! *touches his nose*
Kim: *breathing hard in anger*
Dean: *laughs* You're crazy, but I like that. *walks up to kim*
Kim: *backs up to the locker*
Dean: *puts his arms against the locker trapping kim* Now I know you have this side to you *looks kim in the eyes*
Dean: *feels bad*
Kim: *cries more and slides down against the locker to dean's waist*
Seth: *walks by and sees kim and dean* What the heck? *laughs* That's a little inappropriate for school isn't it Kim.
Dean: *looks down at kim*
Kim: *crying her heart out* Roman.
Dean: *to himself* Roman?
Seth: Dean, you got her, I'm proud of you my brother.
Dean: *kneels down to one knee and lifts kims chin up*
Kim: *crying looking at dean*
Dean: *gives kim a "I'm sorry" look*
Dean: *gets up and walks off*
Seth: Dude! *looks at kim and then goes after dean*
Randy: Where you going?
Seth: I got to talk to Dean.
Randy: We don't deal with Dean, you know that.
Seth: That's my friend.
Randy: *puts his arms around dean* Here's the plan.
Kim: *sitting on the ground by the locker*
Roman: *walks to open his locker* Kim?
Kim: *looks at roman in tears*
Roman: *runs to kim and gets on one knee and hugs kim* What happened?
Kim: *hugs roman and cries harder*
Roman: *hugs kim and closes his eyes* I'm sorry I left you alone here, I really am Kim. I'm sorry.
Kim: *hugs roman tighter*
Roman: *hugs kim back tighter*
Dean: *looking for kim*
Roman: *sees kim and smiles*
Kim: *smiles softly*
Roman: *takes kims backpack* I'll carry it for you. *puts is over his shoulder*
Kim: Thank you. *smiles*
Roman: I owe you an apology, so my punishment is... I'll walk you home. *smiles*
Kim: *chuckles softly* Ok.
Dean: *sees kim leaving with roman*
Roman: *walking next to kim*
Kim: *walks on the edge of the sidewalk*
Roman: You shouldn't do that.
Kim: Why? *looks at roman*
Roman: That's dangerous.
Kim: I always do it when I walk home though.
Roman: Well as long as there's me, I don't want you doing it. I don't to hear that you got hurt or you're no longer breathing.
Kim: *stops and looks at roman from the back*
Roman: *stops and looks back* Kim?
Kim: *smiles and walks on the side walk next to roman*
Roman: *puts his arms around kim and smiles* That's my girl.
Dean: *slowly driving behind from afar and then drives past them*
Roman: *sees deans car*
Roman: Nothing. *stops and looks at kim*
Kim: *looks at roman*
Roman: Let's take the other route from now on.
Kim: *smiles* Ok.
Kim: Well this is my house, thank you for walking me home. *smiles*
Roman: *smiles* No problem, it's a nice house you live in.
Kim: *chuckles* It's not all that, it's enough for my mom, my brother, and me.
Roman: You're brother? How old is he?
Kim: He's 3 years older than me, he's in college. *smiles*
Cody: *opens the door* Kim!?
Kim: *looks back* Oh that's him, his name is Cody.
Roman: I see. Hi Cody!
Kim: Roman! *smiles big trying not to laugh*
Roman: *smiles* I'm Roman, I'm Kim's friend.
Cody: Friend? I'm her brother.
Roman: It's nice to meet you finally. *puts out his hand*
Cody: *shakes romans hand* Yeah you too. Go home now.
Roman: Oh? Ok um... *looks at kim*
Kim: *smiles softly*
Roman: I'll see you tomorrow Kim.
Kim: Yeah, you too Roman.
Roman: *forces a small smile* Bye. *walks off*
Cody: Friend huh?
Kim: *finding something to eat* Yeah. *closes the fridge*
Cody: How long you known him?
Kim: This week.
Cody: This week!?
Kim: Please don't be mad at me Cody, he helped saved me from these bullies at school.
Kim: I'm your sister!
Cody: I don't believe you get bullied at school. If you did mom or I would of gotten calls.
Kim: Maybe I don't want to snitch them out.
Cody: Look at you! Look how you're dressed! You think people bully the riches?!
Kim: Cody... we were before dad left us.
Cody: *cries* Dad left us his fortune! He left us $25,000 in the bank Kim!
Kim: Yeah. *cries* And what happened to it?
Cody: *sits in silence crying*
Kim: *takes a deep breath* You used $10,000 for college, and what about the other $10,000?
Cody: *tries to calm*
Kim: *cries again* Mom used it all on drugs and alcohol. And the $5,000 we tried to save... bailed mom out of jail Cody. We are broke; mom doesn't have a job anymore. She's always out with different guys each night; she's out partying and drinking. *takes a breath* You're always off to college and barely home. And me? I am left with nothing Cody! I can't spend any money because I don't have a job and I can't even have a perfect lunch at school when people always take my lunch and trashes it! *cries* I don't get to eat again until you leave for school and sometimes that's never that I get to eat.
Cody: *gets up and hugs kim* I'm sorry Kim, I'm really sorry. I've been so busy with college that I don't realized what you are going through. *looks kim in the eyes* From now on, when you need anything. Let me know, and I will give it to you.
Kim: *shakes her head* I can't do that because I'll have to give it back to you and I don't even have any to start with.
Cody: I'll stay home today and skip class. I'll take you out, where do you want to go?
Kim: *stares at cody and then cries again slowly*
