"How could you!" Maria, a stupid blond girl with brown eyes, just couldn't seem to take a hint that I wasn't interested in her one bit, even though I've spelled it out for her several times. She shouted at me from almost the other end of the hallway which was crowded with other people that were doing there own things. Much to my extreme disliking, they all halted the instant she yelled. As she kept going marching towards me, she continued to yell, "How the hell could you cheat on me?!"
"What are you talking about?" I shouted back, annoyed at her, "I couldn't che..."
"Don't you give me any of that!" she spat back as her hand ran across my face, "I saw you with that...that...that girl!" In response to her slapping me, the onlookers started to cheer and make assorted noises as I suddenly found myself slamming her right into a set of lockers that lined the pale white walls with strength that I didn't even know. As this was happening, everything around me started to blur together into one large clump of blurry colors and static-like sounds.
"I couldn't cheat on you," I attempted to yell at her once again, my voice erupting from my lungs, "Because we were never together!"
She pushed me backwards and punched me in the chest, which normally would have sent to me to my knees. This time, however, it barely seemed to affect me, as I was still able to breathe without even as so much having to bend over. "What is that supposed to mean?" she asked still outraged. While one of the teachers, followed by an officer, started to push through the crowd as I discovered that everything was eerily becoming extremely clear. I could hear, see, and smell everything so clearly that I could see the sweat on Maria's face, hear the beating hearts of the crowd, a wide assortment of colognes and perfumes, and eventually it seemed as though time completely halted. While time seemed to have stopped, I made a fist and punched her right on the nose, causing in her to fall backwards onto her bottom as blood flew everywhere covering her body, the floor, and the officer that separated us.
After the officer got us to separate, the teacher that accompanied him rushed Maria toward the nurse's office as time, just as quickly as it seemed to have stopped, started to speed up back to normal. The strange changes in the speed of time did not bother me near as much as the fact that my breathing was slower. However, I could not even start to think about what happened, as I was, almost immediately, at the office of the liaison officer that got in the middle of the event as one of the assistant principals handed him small, plain colored vanilla folder with my name on the tab.
"Are you Mr. Bronte Navarro?" he asked, looking at me sternly.
"Y-Yes sir," I stuttered, nervous because this was the first time that I have met an officer on these terms before.
"Would you care to explain what happened in the hallway about two minutes ago?" he asked, but I could not think of anything to say. After all, what are you supposed to tell an officer? She got on my nerves, even after telling her several times that I don't give a care for her, by accusing me of cheating on her, which resulting in me getting mad enough to have to get out all of my frustration. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt that the officer would care about that excuse. While I was thinking of what to tell him, he spoke once again. "Are you aware that her family could press charges on you?" he asked me, as I nodded slowly. "Not only are you looking at least three days of out of school suspension, but you are also looking at a possibility of going on trial for assault." Just then, I felt something crawling up inside of me as I closed my eyes, it felt like something attempting to find a way out of my body. The thing, whatever it was, felt warm yet cold, friendly yet fiendish, yet all I could do now was do my best to force it to stay where it was while dealing with what was happening outside of my body.
"Well, sir," I started to utter, the thing inside of me struggling even harder to come out, "I guess I lost my temper somehow." I suddenly felt like I was gasping for air as fighting the thing became harder and harder to do, yet I seemed to have found enough strength to keep going in the fight against the thing and to continue talking, "You see Maria..."
"Is that the name of the person you punched?" the officer asked, interrupting me, "And can I have her last name as well?"
"Yes she was the one who I punched. However, I don't know her last name," I answered back, still feeling like I was barely able to breath, "You see she seems to think I'm her girlfriend, no matter how many times I tell her I'm not, and she got on me for hanging out with another girl."
"Her name please?"
"Jessica Blaine," I waited for him to write down the name and nod before going on, still feeling like I was struggling to take breaths, "And Maria started to yell at me before slapping me across th..." only to notice the officer's quizzical look.
"Go on," he stated, still with the quizzical look that hinted that he did not see anything on my face, even though I pointed to where she hit me.
"...the face. I guess that's when I lost it as I slammed her into the locker and she punched me in the chest," I received another quizzical look, but ignored it as I kept my struggle under control as best as I could, "Then, I punched her in the face about the same time you and the teacher showed up."
The officer finished writing down that last bit before nodding, "Thank you, now then, where did she slap you?" I merely pointed at where she slapped me while he took out a camera and started to take a few picture of it, the flash blinding me more than once. Then he asked me to take off my shirt and started to take pictures of my chest, but as I looked down at it I couldn't even see any form of pink, it was as though nothing had happened to my body before I was told to back on my shirt.
"Excuse me, officer," the assistant principal walked in, "Are you done with him?" he received a slight nod as he turned to tell me that he called my mom and she would be here in about ten minutes. Then both, the liaison officer and assistant principal, handed me a couple of forms for me to sign, which I read, to discover one of them was a witness form containing everything I told the officer. The second one was a referral for the fight, and the last one pretty much told me the rules that came with receiving an out of school suspension. While struggling with whatever it was that still wanted to come out of me, I looked over all three of the forms, reluctantly signed, dated, and returned them to the assistant principal as he told me to sit in one of the chairs in the waiting room. However, the next thing that happened really startled me as one of the strongest people out of the whole school, Varian, who was wanted by just about every sports club in our school, was looking at me through his dark red, messy yet groomed, hair that went in front of his matching-colored eyes.
"It seems as though you are one," he stated with a slight smile on his face, sending shivers down my spine as the thing felt like it was about to leap out of me as I swore I heard something that amounted to growl from a…wolf? However, he seemed to leave me with another thing to think about because, before he could explain what he meant by 'you are one', the assistant principal and officer called him into an office. At the same time, my mom came into the waiting room with a furious look on her face to as one of the secretaries stopped her to tell her that the assistant principal and officer were talking to another student and that she needed to wait. Unfortunately, it only seemed to have bought me little of time from facing my mom's fury, since the secretary told her to take a chair next to me. My mom nodded to the secretary while faking a smile before sitting next to me, without words, for a few minutes before finally glaring at me.
"Once we get home," she demanded, "I WANT TO HEAR EVERYTHING!"
All I could do was nod while forcing down the thing down even more as it felt like it was within a few seconds of coming out of me. Looking around, something distracted me. I suddenly noticed there was something in the chair that Varian was sitting in, positioned in just the right spot where only I could see it in the chair on the other side of me. Quickly and quietly, I leaned over to pick it up from the when I discovered what it was a folded up piece of paper with just two lines of scribbled writing on the front. It read:
do not open until you are alone.
Although I was curious as to what it was and why I needed to open it when I was alone, I merely slipped it into my pocket without making a fuss, while fighting to keep the thing that was inside of me to stay down, at least for just little bit longer until I was home. Meanwhile, time ticked by slowly as I assumed Varian was being interviewed as a witness and then the three came out nodding, shaking hands, and then allowed Varian to walk back to class. On his way out of the office, however, he looked in the chair that he was sitting in prior to the investigation, and nodded before the officer and assistant principal started to talk to my mom in low voices. Although I couldn't exactly hear them, I knew it wasn't good as she looked at me, made slow head movements, glared at me, and then shook hands with the two of them before they made their way. My mom snapped at me to follow her, and I did, not wanting to get her more annoyed at me than what she already was.
