"I knew that was you," he says making his way through the crowd of dancing people.
"Penn," I say, standing up a little straighter. I haven't seen him since I kicked his ass and got kicked out of school. His face seemed to heal completely back to normal.
"I think we have some unfinished business don't you think," he asks. I notice a couple of his friends making their way to stand behind him.
"Nah, I think your trip to the hospital made everything pretty final," I say, turning around to walk away but he stops me.
"You caught me off guard that day," he defends. "Bet you don't have the balls to fight me right here, right now," he says, shifting into a fighting stance with his fists out in front of him.
I'm thinking of knocking his ass out again, but then Camryn enters my mind. I promised her I'd stop fighting. But like Alyssa pointed out, I don't see her anywhere.
"Just hit em!" one of Penn's friends shouts. Penn listens and swings at me, but I duck, and he ends up punching the dude behind me.
I clench my fist and bring it up to meet his jaw, and with that hit, he's on the floor. The other guy he hit turns around and only sees me standing and comes after me. This guys has a good thirty pounds on me so he's slow as he throws his punches.
I'm quick enough to make it out of the way, but with people everywhere, it's kind of difficult.
"Bobby! You're going after the wrong guy!" I hear some girl yell. The guy swinging at me and looks at the girl confusedly. "It was him you dumbass," she says, pointing to Penn trying to stand up.
Bobby turns his attention to Penn and kicks him down before returning to whatever he was doing before he was hit. What the fuck, that was weird.
Penn tries to stand and his friends help him up.
"Okay bitch, can we squash this shit now?" I ask. This is all so childish. Penn rubs his jaw and glares at me.
"Fine," he says, sticking his hand out for me to shake. I'm hesitant to take it, but I'm sure he doesn't want to take his chances with me again.
I shake his hand and walk outside to meet Toby again.
"What took you so long?" he asks once I reach him. I try to understand what just happened myself before I try to explain it.
"Did you know Penn was here?" Is the first thing I ask. Toby's face goes from drunk to serious in .5 seconds.
"No, he's here? Did you see him? Did he see you? Did he try something?" He asks all too quickly. I replay the last five minutes in my head and ask myself if they actually happened.
"Um, yea, he swung first so I knocked him down," I say as if it was no big deal. But it is a big deal, Camryn doesn't want me fighting, and by the looks of it, neither does Toby.
"What the fuck Colton why didn't you call me?!" he shouts, earning the attention of his other friends.
"I was too busy trying to stop the prick from getting a hit on me!" I yell back. I knew I shouldn't have came. I've done a great job on trying to get my shit together but now all that progress is gone. One step forward, three steps back.
"Are you okay, did he get you?" he asks more calmly.
"No, of course he didn't," I say, brushing him away. I could really use a drink right now, so instead of going back inside I grab one from the girl standing a few feet away from me.
