Six months ago, I arrived in Enfield looking for a fresh start. Scarred by an old incident, I hoped life in a new town would help me finally accept myself, but I was wrong because the big change brought something way worse. Blake Jones.
I was on Blake’s radar from the first day of our senior year, when he humiliated me in front of the whole school with a “welcome party.” However, it wasn’t welcoming at all, and it was just the start.
Day after day, Blake was there to remind me I was fat and worthless, and the coward in me never let me defend myself.
Until I finally exploded and fought back, right in the middle of class.
But now? Now I have to pay the price because Blake won’t let it slide. He’ll make sure I regret it.
Unless I manage to break out of his hatred and my all-consuming fears.
“I’m aware that I’m not the bravest person out there, but I can change. I want to change.”
“Aww, so touching. Do you want applause? Here.” He clapped his hands hard. Each clap brought me more shame and pain, but I didn’t back down.
“You can mock me all you want, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’ll be out of high school soon and won’t have to see your face ever again.” He clenched his jaw. “One day, I’ll be a better person, but you’ll never change. You’ll always remain this horrible jerk without a heart.” Something flashed in his eyes, and the veins at his temples bulged out. “You’ll stay alone.”
