A/N: I do not own Saved by the bell or any of the characters, as much as I wish I did LOL. This story is a complete work of my own imagination and is completely false.
She felt the fire in her face as his hand connected with her cheek. She gulped and shrunk into the corner of the room. She wasn't all that certain what was going on or how she was going to deal with this but he was drunk and on a rampage.
"You're mine you slut." He shouted at her as he charged towards the frightened woman in the corner.
"Please stop." She screamed. "Someone help me, please, he is trying to kill me!"
"No one can hear you bitch." Came the snarled reply as he slammed his fist into her flesh once again.
"Stop it." She shouted as she pushed at him, trying to force him to get away. She felt the blood trickling as she lost complete conscious.
Kelly smiled as she and Zack were eating dinner together. "So do you think Slater will ever pop the question?" She asked him finally as she set her fork aside.
"That's none of our business." Zack said shaking his head.
"Aw come on, tell me you don't want to know." Kelly said to her husband with a smirk.
"I don't want to know." Zack said with a grin.
"Alex and he are so close." Kelly said with a pout. "You should talk him into it."
"Kelly." Zack warned since he knew something she didn't. "Slater and Alex broke up this morning."
"What? Why?" Kelly asked shocked as her fork clattered to her plate.
"Something about a phone call Slater got that made him not want to be with her or something like that." Zack said shrugging his shoulders.
"What kind of phone call? From who?" Kelly asked suspicious.
"Don't know." Zack said shrugging again.
Lisa sat by her friend's side as she bit her bottom lip. She knew she needed to call someone to help her, but whom could she call. She glanced down at the phone numbers she had and closed her eyes, randomly picking one. She landed on Slater's name and she sighed, knowing this was going to cause some problems.
"Hello?" Slater answered his phone sleepily, it was 1AM and whoever was on the line was gonna get it.
"Slater it's Lisa." Lisa said in a hushed voice.
"Hey what's going on?" Slater asked alarmed, he knew Lisa wouldn't be at this time or calling him if it wasn't important.
"Slater something really bad has happened and I need your help. Can you come to Chicago?" Lisa asked softly. "It's an emergency and trust me when you get here you'll agree."
"All right, I'll be there." Slater said agreeing. "Since when do you have a place in Chicago?" He asked doing a double take.
"I don't. I'm at Chicago Memorial Hospital. Please you need to hurry." Lisa said as she hung up the phone.
Slater jumped out of bed and quickly got dressed and packed a bag. He looked at the phone, debating on whether or not to call Zack and let him know. Deciding that there was no around it he called his best friend to let him know what was going on and where he was going. He had a feeling Zack and Kelly were going to be coming along.
Four hours later, Slater, Zack and Kelly all sat on a red eye flight heading for Chicago. They were all worried about Lisa's health and were all jumpy. When they finally reached Chicago they took a cab immediately to the hospital, not daring to find a hotel first. When they got there they saw Lisa waiting for them in front of the hospital.
"Thanks for coming." Lisa said with a small smile.
"Wait if your not hurt than who is?" Zack asked confused.
"I knew you would bring them along with you, I guess I made the right call, although she is going to kill me for it later on. I can't tell you what happened to her, because I don't even know, but I can tell you whatever it was, it's bad. She needs help and she needs someone to look after her." Lisa said softly.
"Wait a minute who are you talking about?" Kelly asked holding onto Zack's hand.
"She's in pretty bad shape but the only thing she wants is to get out of here." Lisa said biting her lower lip. "She transferred out this way a few months ago I guess."
"Wait a minute you have to tell us who you are talking about." Slater said starting to sound confused. He had seriously thought that it was Lisa who was badly injured and in the hospital and now that he knew it wasn't her he really wanted to know what was going on.
"Promise you won't get mad that I didn't tell you over the phone? Or that I didn't call you sooner?" Lisa asked as they all walked into the hospital.
"Yeah we promise." Kelly, Zack and Slater all said at once.
"She's in a room right now with a doctor, trying to get them to release her, although she doesn't realize she has been her, unconscious for a week." Lisa said with a sigh as they took the elevator to the next floor.
"Wait you still haven't told us who she is." Kelly said starting to get irritated.
"Be patient." Lisa snapped getting annoyed. "I know you want to know but you have to wait. She doesn't look at all like a young woman, she looks like a battered body."
"I know who it is." Slater whispered as he felt pain shoot through his heart.
"How do you know?" Zack asked confused.
"Because she would only call me if it were one person. I have been wanting to keep tabs on her because I knew she was getting herself into trouble with this guy we met last time we saw her. I knew he was trouble and I tried to warn her." Slater said looking at the ground.
"Who is it?" Zack and Kelly asked together as they arrived at a room. Just then Lisa pushed open the door and everyone's mouths dropped.
"Oh my god." Kelly said as she rushed into the room. "Jessie tell me you're all right." She whispered to her friend.
"Just peachy." Jessie said as she tried to smile but failed because of the pain she was in.
"I should have protected you." Slater whispered as he went to her other side that the doctor vacated and held her hand. "I won't let you out of my sight. Did he get arrested?"
"They can't find him." Jessie whispered to him. "He's gonna kill me, I just know it." She said as she started to cry.
"I won't let him." Slater said fiercely, promising both her and himself.
