PROLOGUE

My eyes opened slowly. Pain coursed through my body as I lay on the cold, wet cement. I coughed up blood. “That’s from Kendra!” A boy yelled to me. I looked up and seen the 5 Park High School Seniors that just jumped me. Kendra was one of my exes and she’s hated my guts ever since I broke up with her. The boy she’s dating now led the group of seniors. They laughed as they all began to walk away. I used up the little strength I had left to get to my feet. “C’mon pussies!!!!...” I yelled weakly. I know that was stupid but they couldn't just get away with this! The 5 of them turned around turned around. “What the hell did you just say!?” One yelled as they all ran at me. I readied myself as a fist slammed into my jaw, sending me back to the damp cement. A dozen fists and feet pounded me to a bloody pulp.

After a minute or two of the attack, they stopped. The pain was excruciating! I was pretty sure they broke a couple of my ribs.. One spit at me and said, “Try ta get back up now!” They started to walk away again but then Kendra’s boyfriend turned around and kicked me in the gut harder than before. I coughed up even more blood and the other 4 tried to hold him back. He stopped struggling and his friend began yelling at him. I didn’t pay attention to what he was saying. I was seeing red… The pain faded away. I got to my feet while they weren’t paying attention. I limped over to Kendra’s boyfriend. By the time they noticed me I swung. I put all my power behind this jab and I hit Kendra’s boyfriend right in the nose. I heard a crack so I’m pretty sure I broke it. Then, the 4 other seniors tackled me to the ground. They held me down, punching, kicking, elbowing. The next thing I heard was the loud, agonizing screaming of the boys and the roaring of flames…
