I couldn't believe what just happened. This kid that walked in was picking on Katt, he got ahold of one of her pictures, and it was the one she was doing in class, he then read the love note off the back and tore it to pieces. Katt was angry and embarrassed and she punched him right before she left for class. Matt was blushing hard, and it seemed J was furious but couldn't do anything about it. I was at a loss of words like the rest of the class.
"Damn..." Jordan said as he stood up, his nose and lip bleeding. And then George walked into the room, livid.
My head snapped up when I heard Jordon read the love note. I watched as both Katt and Matthew turn bright red. Katt stood and punched the school bully in the face, Jordon falling to the ground with a bloody nose. He deserved it, probably thousands more. He's picked on so many, I am no exception. Katt and I are his main targets, Katt more so. Katt ran out of the room, brushing by George who came in, looking really pissed. He walked up to Jordon, and picked him up by the shirt collar.
"I don't know what you did, but you're gonna get it after school, punk." George growled.
Jordon just laughed then winced at the pain in his nose. "Just the normal. I'd like to see you try Georgey boy."
George set him down, looked at me and nodded.
Just then Matt ran out of the room.
This was too much. Jordon deserved every bit of pain Katt enforced upon him. After she ran out of the room, and George did his damage, or promised his damage, I couldn't take it anymore. Jumping up, I ran out of the room to find Katt. I ran throughout the school, desperate to find my dear friend. I eventually found her... in the school's courtyard, hiding among the over growth.
Carefully I walked up to her. "Katt?"
I walked up to Jordan after George left. "I'll be there too..." and walked out of the room to catch up with George.
I saw Matt there and wiped my face and gave a small smile. he sat next to me and pulled out a pen and paper.
"I really liked the picture and the note with it." he wrote.
"thanks..." I wrote back, a small laugh escaping.
"I liked the picture to," he wrote back.
"Thanks...it was supposed to be a birthday present," I wrote back.
"Well it was very nice thank you..." he wrote.
"Yeah..." I wrote back, wondering if he will say anything more about it....
I looked at Katt, her eyes red and teary. I brushed a strand of hair from her face, smiling.
[Don't worry about Jordan, George and I have got it.] I wrote.
I stood and looked Jordan in the eye. "Count on me being there too." I left looking for George. I found him and Dylan talking. By the looks of it, George was on the edge, unsure of Dylan. I stayed, pressed up against the wall, out of their sight and listening in. That's the advantage of being a twig... not very many people see you when you don't want to be seen.
"Okay..well now that my biggest secret has been spilled..." I replied back with a small smile wiping my eyes. I looked at Matt, and he seemed in thought...
"Hey George wait up!" I called out to him as he followed Matt. "What do you want?" George hissed as me. "I want to help, I may have just met everyone, but what that guy did was wrong. I want to help." I said in return.
"Oh really?" George. "I don't like you, not one bit....but I suppose if you want to help, you can..." George said. "Dont follow me," he said and went after Matt.
I nodded and thought for a bit. "You know..." before I could say anything, George burst through the doors.
"Katt, are you okay?" He asked, kneeling down next to her.
I sighed, and said nothing.
I sighed apparently a little loudly.
I found Em hiding behind a wall. "That sigh was you right?" I asked with a small smile. She nodded "Yeah...we should get back to class." she said. I nodded and followed her back in, eager to have more words with this Jordan character.
I nodded as George asked me questions. I heard Matt sigh and then the lunch bell rang, so we just sat and ate here, knowing the others would be here soon enough.
Soon, Jorel, Dylan, and Ember were sitting with us. Well, most were. Ember sat by herself.
They were worried about Katt, but she waved them off. She wasn't one who normally attracted attention to herself. Soon, we just resorted to small talk and jokes.
i walked up to Katt, exchanged a few words, traded a few things for lunch then went to sit by myself. No matter how close some may claim to be to me, I've never really been able to come close to anybody. Not with what I had myself knee deep in.
People kept bugging me if I was okay or not, and of course I am now, Matt is sitting so close....
I was more worried about Em than me.
George was glaring at Dylan still, just not as much. Em sighed a bit, I guess George does like her, but she likes Dylan I bet...but I wasn't thinking of them long because Matts hand brushed up against my thigh, making me blush so hard.
I want to sit next to Em, but George was glaring at me. I can't help but feel he likes her, and thats why he doesn't like me, because Em noticed me and not him. I feel bad, because I have only just gotten here... I looked over to J and he and Katt were talking, it seemed to be a happy conversation, which is good, considering what just happened. I suppose I should learn sign language so she and I can talk.
Jorel was in the middle of telling a joke when none other than Jordon entered the courtyard, grinning like an idiot.
"Hello Kitty cat." He teased, looking at Katt.
Jorel, George, Dylan, Ember and I stood, glaring at the jerk.
"Touch her, or any of 'em, you're gonna wish you hadn't." George growled.
Jordon cackled. "Oh don't worry, I'm saving it for after school. This is where we meet, got it? Oh, and since you have your own friends helping you, I brought my own. You know them well. See you then." he laughed as he left.
I swallowed hard. What had I just gotten myself into? Jordon's friends... they weren't good people, almost worse than Jordon himself. I looked over at Dylan, he seemed deeply confused.
"Friends? That guy has friends?" He asked, befuddled.
jorel nodded stiffly. "somehow, yes. But they're just as bad as him."
"Who are they?"
"Aron and Jeff..." I breathed... we're so screwed...
