Ethan pushes through the herd of students who are trying to get out  of the class. I don't stop. I push forward. I squeeze through two boys who shoot me death glares. I cower under their gazes and dart out of there.
  
    I don't stop. He'll kill me. He'll kill me just like I killed his sister. 
  
    I shake my head trying squeeze the tears back in. One escapes. I escape, too. I'm out of the class. My lower lip is trembling. I run a hand through my blue streaked hair. Stop crying, Miriam. You'll ruin your makeup. Like I cared about my makeup. I run down the hall and to my locker, my footsteps merging into one racket with a hundred more. My heart is pounding like a herd of bulls stampeding in a field.
  
    He'll kill me.
