The sun was setting and that’s when the even shadows and the stars appeared. It’s was a cold winters day, not many around, I liked the quiet, it’s so peaceful. A group of people came out of a restaurant, talking very loudly, almost yelling. They were yelling, *I wonder why, was it at someone?* I thought to myself. Then this young woman came out of the group and walked fast away from them. The group continued after her still yelling, a man grabbed her shoulder and another pushed her against a wall. I stood up in anger. They started kicking her, and calling her faggot and queer. I ran across the street not caring about the oncoming cars and yelled, “HEY! Get the fuck out of here you have no right to do that!”
A man turned around and said, “You want to stand up for this piece of garbage, so are you a queer too?”
“I don’t have to put up with your bullshit, now get out of here.” I said.
“Whatever, you’re not worth my time.” said the man.
And they all walked away.
I looked at the girl lying on the ground, she was shivering, *Why is this girl not wearing a coat*.
“Are you okay?” I asked.
She looked up at me in shock, with tears rolling down her face, a bloody lip, and her medium brown hair in her deep blue eyes…
She got up and ran away around the corner into an alley. I followed her, and peered my head around the corner, she was leaning against a wall in a ball crying and shaking. All of a sudden the wind picked up and ice cold rain started to blow in her face, she was starting to turn blue
*It’s so cold* I though while sitting in the dark alley like a coward. I heard a noise and turned around; it was the woman from earlier. I sat up, she started walking towards me, and without saying a word she took off her coat, wrapped it around me, and put her arms around my waist. I didn’t know what to do, how to react, I just hugged her back. She loosened her grip but didn’t let go and looked at me...
“Did they hurt you?” she asked me.
“No, I’m fine.” I said trying to act tuff. *She is gorgeous*
She let go and put her hands on my face, they were so warm, examining it. She noticed the blood on my lip,
“Does it hurt?” She asked as she touched it with her finger
“Yes!” I said because it stung really bad.
“Here, I can fix that…” She leaned in and kissed me softly, she was so warm so beautiful, it was over whelming. She released and looked at me
“Hi… I’m Iris” She said.
“Hi…I’m Delilah” I reply.
I knew right there at that moment, there was no doubt in my mind where she belonged.
