You winced as a rather mean girl shoved you into a locker. Knocking the books out of your hands and sending papers flying everywhere. People laughed as you tried to hold back tears that threatened to fall from your eyes.
As the hall started to empty it got quieter. Not for the first time that year you felt like you didn’t want to go to class. Along you sat there in the hall, leaning against the cool metal of the lockers.
“Hey girl,” a rough voice said.
You looked up hesitantly. Only to see Matthiu. You heard that he was a bully that liked to beat up people that got on his bad side. You gulped, “Y-yes?”
He smirked at your reaction and crouched down to look at you, “Never seen you around here. What’s your name?”
“_-_________,” you said quietly, pulling your books closer to your chest as if to shield yourself from him and his piecing gaze that hid behind a pair of sunglasses.
“__________,” the name rolled off his tongue like maple syrup. It you were standing, you were sure that his voice would make your knees wobble. “Nice name.” he complimented.
“I’m Matthiu,” he said smirking.
Giving a short nod you said quietly, “I know.”
“You do?” he asked almost amused.
You blushed, you didn’t intend of him to hear you.
He moved your books away from you and smirked, “You’re kinda hot. You know?”
You blushed harder.
“Well, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll keep those bullies away from you if…”
“If you be my girl,” he said placing his fist against the locker next to your head.
No coherent thought came to you for a few seconds. After your little brain fart you managed to get out a squeaky, “What?”
He leaned in closer to your face, “I’ll keep people from picking on you if you become my girlfriend.”
“Oh, you don’t want me to keep people from picking on you?”
“No!” you said quickly. Making him smile even wider. “O-ok…”
With a small grunt he pulled you up by your arm and said, “Alright, babe. Let’s go to class then.”
You smiled, “Alright…”
With his arm around your waist he guided you to class.
And from that day never again were you picked on.
