14. Running Home

Chapter 13// Running Home

After a really long detention it's time to go home. Before even being able to get out of the school Melissa is waiting outside... for me. She gives me a big fake smile and says, "I see you went to the principle's office with the note." I just look down and continue walking but I pause and I give her a confused expression.

"Don't act that way! You know you did... you little cry baby." 

I furrowed my eyebrows and said, "No, I didn't someone must hav-"

"Snitches need stitches." Melissa said shaking her head. 

"But I didn't do it!" I shouted.

"Nobody likes a snitch.." Melissa started off. "Maybe... if you weren't alive no one would have to worry about a snitch."

"Melissa shut up!" I snap back. Luke is just walking out of the school as I do this. He seems to stop dead in his tracks and stares at the both of us. I quickly glance at Luke before Melissa notices. But of course she notices.

"Aw, you need Lukey's help don't you?" She says making a frowny face and her eyes all big. I look down at the ground and shift my feet. How come all of a sudden everyone wants me off this planet? Can't I live my own life...

"Lilly, we should walk home." Luke says interrupting my thoughts. I look up at him and back at Melissa. I want to leave so badly but Melissa will give me so much shit for being a wimp and not standing up to her.

"Aw, he's trying to stand up for you. Isn't that adorable?" She says trying to be sweet. She then turns her mood over and glares at me with her eyes staring deeply into me. "Now tell me, why did you tell the principle?"

"I DID NOT" I yelled really loudly. Anger filled my body as those words echoed away into the sky.

Melissa seemed pissed off. Honestly, I really didn't go to snitch on her. I was telling the truth but she would't listen. I didn't know what happened really. I wanted to just let go, let my tears come down again... but I had to be brave right? I would have to stand up to Melissa.. right?

"It's ok Lilly.. you can cry." said Melissa mocking me as she rubbed away fake tears. I clenched my fists. Boy did I want to get her back so badly!

"Lilly, no!" Luke shouted as he stepped forward. Stupidly I tried. I took my fist and swung at her. I hit her but it seemed to not phase her. She swung back a couple times more and it did much more damage to me then her. I fell hardly on my butt after she kicked me a few times and all of a sudden my view was blurry. My mouth and nose were bleeding and now I had some rips in my leggings. Along with those rips were bleeding knees from falling on them. Tear drops fell from where I sat. Luke rushed over and helped me up. He tried brushing off some dust on my shirt from the ground but I wiped away some blood and tried running home. Luke chased after me. It hurt like hell to run but I did anyway. As fast as I could, as far away as I could. Surprisingly, Luke hasn't caught up with me yet.. I'm running pretty slowly. 

Finally, after I was out of Melissa's sight I slowed down to a walk. She's my neighbor so i'd probably see her sometime soon anyway but I just didn't want to talk to her, or anyone really. Luke caught up with me. He went to rub my back but I flinched from the pain and he stepped away. The walk was pretty much silent except for when I sniffled trying to keep my nose from bleeding even more.

Once we got to my house I went straight up to my bedroom. Luke just looked around and trailed behind me. I went into my bedroom and grabbed some comfy new clothes. Luke followed me in and sat on my bed.

"I'll be in the shower." I said a little angrily, still wiping away some blood. He just nods and his face seems to sadden a little. 

I went into the bathroom and turned on the shower to let the water heat up. Meanwhile, I washed the blood out of my mouth by gargling water. I held a tissue to my nose for a while. Once I got in the shower I washed the rest of the blood from my nose. I gently scrubbed the dried blood on my face and rinsed the scrapes on my knees. I stood in the water and just tried to refresh. Refresh my thoughts, my feelings, everything. Once I calmed down I turned off the shower and got out. I changed into my sweatpants and my sweatshirt... comfort once again. Well.. sort of, my back hurts like crazy still and I still taste blood in my mouth.

I turn off the light and grab my dirty clothes. Luke stares at me as I walk in. I look up at him and I see the little scratch on his head from his own fight he had earlier.

"Maybe you should wash up a little." I smile even though it hurts a little. Luke shrugs as I put my clothes in a basket. 

"How ya feeling?" He asks.

I sigh.. "Long story short, I feel like shit."

"You know, it really hurts to see you this way." He adds.. a little sadness in his voice. We both stare at each other for a few solid seconds.

"Don't worry." I say as I sit down and carefully lean against my bedpost. 

"I have to Lilly. What they're doing is not right. Someone has to protect you." He says placing his hand in mine. I smile a small smile and look down at my bruises. "Maybe you should rest a little?" He asks. I nod and lay down pulling my blanket over me. Luke grabs the end of the blanket near him and slides under it. He moves over and gently wraps his hands around my waist, making sure not to touch any bruises. Within minutes I drifted off to sleep..
