Saved By A Bully
*** Ranked no. 4, in YA Fiction Writing Contest II (Session One) ***
I am running as faster as I can. Some men are running behind me. I do not want to get caught by them. No one on the road is there in the middle of the night.
As I crossed that dark alley, my eyes fell on a motorbike which is coming in my direction. I ran toward that motorbike with the hope that the person might save me from those guys. The biker halted his motorbike to see me coming.
I ran toward the person and stuttered with tears in my eyes, “P-please h-help m-me.” I am shaking in terror and sweating miserably.
I told him breathless whose helmet is still on, saying, “T-they a-are c-coming. P-please.” I am pleading to him helplessly.
I started crying when I heard those men said out, “There she is. You made us run for so long, little girl. Now come to us. We are going to have a good time with you.”
No! God! I have to go back to my daughter.
Then I screamed out in horror when I heard a gun firing by my side.
I looked at the biker and my eyes widened to see his face. The infamous and most feared bully, the boy from senior year, in my school. He was staring at the goons with his cold green eyes with holding a gun in his hand. The school bully saved me!
