Toby pov

Ash: Can I hang at your house for a while? Jinxx doesn't want me staying with him for some reason.

Toby: yeah, of course

Poor Ash. I was actually gonna ask her to hang out at my place for a while. But I guess she asked for me.

My doorbell rings and I rush to the door opening it. It's Ash. And some kid is with her. A boy. He has black floppy hair. If I swung that way, I'd totally tap dat.

"Hey." He says. He has a husky voice.

"Hey, snowball. This is Damien. " Ash motions towards the boy

"Hello, Damien. I'm Toby. Ash calls me snowball or Ticci Toby." I say. He nods.

"May we come in? I would like talk to you." He asks.

"Uh, yeah. Sure."

"There's this guy bullying Ash and I want you and Jinxx to help me beat him shitless. I'm not really giving you a choice. Trust me I'm scarier than I look." He says smiling.

"I believe you. I've seen you fight. Who I'm I killing?"

Ash sighs and Damien scratches his neck and sits down on the couch and I follow.

"Who?" I ask.

"Cody Camille." He says.  NOPE!

"OH HELL NAH BITCH! I SWEAR THAN MAN IS ON STEROIDS!" I shout. Then I see Ash and her face looks so sad.

I sit back down.

"I will. But! I'm gonna get a couple jocks in with it too. By the way Ash, you may not know it, but half jocks have a HUGE crush on you. And they'd beat Cody up for you."

"Cody is really strong a bulky, but if we just have one jock, Jinxx, you and me, we got him pinned down on the ground begging for mercy." Damien says.

"You're hair would look adorable if it were blue." Ash says looking at Damien smiling.

"Like cotton candy blue?" He asks.

"No. Like, electric blue. Or just at the tips maybe?"

"I'll think about it." He says smiling. I glare at him. She can't seriously like him, right?

"Listen, I love you guys, but I gotta go. I need to get my stuff from Jinxx's house. I'll be back in about half an hour maybe less. I'm also gonna pick up some food. What do you guys want?" Ash says.

"Ooh! McDonald's! McDonald's! PLEASE please please please please!" He says like a child.

Ash laughs and smiles.

"Sure sweetheart."

Sweetheart?! What?!

She walks out of the house.

"Are you guys a thing?" I ask.

"Nah. I don't think so...I like her, but I think. I don't think she likes me back. We kinda had a hot make out session, but I think that's all we are. Nothing's gonna happen between us. I think."

"Me and Jinxx like her too. She's the girl that half the boys in the school like. I am actually really scared for her. She doesn't look like she could really defend herself. And I don't know if she can save herself from- well, herself."

"I'm tired. Wake me up when she gets here." Damien says.

He lays his head in my lap and lays down. Oh dang. He's hot. Am I bi? I'm definitely not gay. Bi curious? I would say I'm bi. I think.

He flashes his eyes open. He's adorable and hot at the same time.

"Thanks." He says.


"You said that out loud sexy idiot."

"O-oh. Sorry."

"It's fine. I know you'd tap dis. I'm sexy as fuck."

"Fuck isn't very sexy."

"Shut up. I'm sleeping now. Try not to drool over me. And if you get a boner I will poke you in the eye."


With that, he falls asleep.

Ash pov

I'm walking to McDonald's since it's a two minute walk. A guy in a blue hoodie starts walking towards me. I panic and start walking back to Toby's house. The man grabs my arm. He pulls me into an apartment. I try to pull away but he tightens his grip.

What's he doing? Is he gonna mug me?! Rape me?! Sell me to some weird old man?! Fuck!

I try to speak but my throat closes up and I can't breathe. I'm having an anxiety attack. The man gets ducktape and puts several layers around my mouth. I try to scream but I can't.

"Oh shit. You're having an anxiety attack." I recognize the voice. It's- oh god no, it's him!
