I try to avoid him for the rest of the day but as if he has a tracking device on me he finds me. It was now gym time, and class was letting out. He waited by the gym doors for me, and once I saw him I tensed up.

"Are you okay?" My friend Austin asks me.

"Yeah I'm fine..." I respond as I look back at Jalonni who is looking at me and tapping his watch. Which symbolizes that he's getting impatient.

"I-I have to go..." I say to Austin quickly before turning to leave. Once I get near Jalonni he pats my back but to most people it looks like he is casually holding my shoulder, but he's really squeezing my neck roughly.

"Jalonni don't----" I start as he punches me in the chest two times as we are walking away from the gym.

Every time we walked past someone he would dap them, and say hey then resume his abuse.

He punches me again in the chest and I wimper. "Jalonni stop pl---"

"Shut the fuck up.." He whispers and I do as I'm told. "You want to play lil games and shit I got your ass check and mate."

I try not to cry loudly because I know it would only escalate once we get home. I had to find a way to stall. "I have to stay after today.." I lie hoping he wouldn't question it.

"For who.." He asks removing his hand from my neck finally.

"Mr. Mart" I quickly say.

"How long?" He heaves.

"Until 6" I lie. "I'm doing super bad in his class." I lie again.

"You better not be lying to me Hyden.." he says through gritted teeth.

"I aren't, I me- I mean I'm not" I say as the twitch begins to vigorate.

"Okay I want you home at 6:10" He demands.

"But the busses don't leave until--"

"I don't fucking care about that you leave at 5:45" He urges me.

"Why are you doing--"

He grabs my face, and holds my lips together. "I swear if you don't shut the fuck up right now, La'rey will take the ass beating for you..." He says and instantly I oblige with his commands.

He motions for me to leave, and quickly walk off. Once I get back into the school, I quickly walk towards the boys locker room. I didn't want to let my tears escape in front of anyone other than me. Once I got inside I threw my bookbag at one of the lockers, and sat on one of the benches inside the locker room. I start to sob loudly letting my cries echo throughout the locker room. I tried to wipe away each fallen tear as they fell. I briefly stopped once I heard a locker quietly shut.

"Who's there?" I ask stopping my sob session.

"I'm sorry I---" The voice says coming around the corner. "Mahyden.." He says surprisingly.

I sigh. "Oh Theo.." I place my head in my hands.

"Are you okay?" He asks walking over towards the bench to comfort me.

"I'm fine.." I wave him off.

"No you aren't what is wrong?" He pushes me to answer.

I stand up from the bench to grab my bookbag. "Just let me be.."

He grabs my arm softly. "You know I'm not going to do that?" He admits.

I look at him with watery eyes. "Why won't you?" I ask.
