A/N: I added a small chapter. Hope you guys don't mind.

Today was Halloween, a day Kate somewhat liked but never got to participate in do to Nick and his wife.

Speaking of his wife, she left him a few weeks ago, why? She didn't say, probably didn't love him anymore. Either way, he's taken to blaming her for it, it's got to the point where he would come into Kates room while she was sleeping, drag her out of the bed, take her downstairs, and beat the living shit out of her. His wife leaving him threw him into a huge fit, he wasn't getting over it at all. Instead, he was just taking his rage out on Kate.

Anyways, it was morning, Kate got dressed for school in her terrible clothes and headed to school. Now Mr. Anderson was a cool principal, he allowed the students to come dressed up in costumes if they wished to, no matter what it was, it's Halloween. The day you're supposed to be scary. The only thing was, no actual weapons, we all know why. When she got to school, she saw a lot of students dressed up in costumes. Humphrey and his small gang, who go by their nicknames: Salty, Shakey, and Mooch, were all dressed up in red cloaks and a toy on their side.

The group was huddled up beside their lockers, which were right next to hers surprisingly.
As she was heading to her locker, she couldn't help but listen in on their conversation.

"Yeah no, the cloaks didn't cost that much, nor did the lightsabers. How cool would it be if they were real?" Humphrey asked them.
"Well for one, we'd be able to melt through things that we wanted to get into…" Salty told him.

"I'm just glad we chose to do this instead." Mooch told them.

Apparently, they were acting like Siths from Star Wars.

When she was done getting her stuff out of the locker, she headed on. The one thing bugging her was that she didn't see Jacob anywhere. Hopefully, he was out for the day. Which was the case, when the first period came, he wasn't here. She had a free day from him for once. Enjoying the peace and quiet, she kept to herself, looking at everyone's costumes as they walked by.

At the end of the day, the principal did a costume rating, some freshman won the contest. Her costume was a female version of Freddy Krueger. Greatly detailed and played him spot on.

When she got home from school, Nick looked at her with a disgusted look before telling her to get in his truck. She was confused as he never took her anywhere, but she complied, hesitant, she got in his truck. He got in the driver's side and pulled out of the driveway, taking her downtown. He parked the truck somewhere and got out, telling her to follow him. She did, he took her for a walk around the block.

"It's all your fault you know?" He told her.

She didn't answer him, she looked away. Everything was her fault, everything. He kept belittling her, she kept quiet and listened to him. Five minutes of walking passed, she was looking in front of her, a few vehicles were driving by. The next thing she knows, he shoves her in front of an oncoming truck. She looked on in fear as the truck tried to dodge her and slow down, but it was too sudden and everything went black from there.

Once traffic was stopped, Kate was lying on the ground, bleeding, few broken bones, the driver panicking, Nick was faking his terror, telling everyone she ran in front of the truck and he was trying to stop her. Everyone believed him. Eventually, an ambulance came and took her away, news spread fast about her being hit.

A/N: This correlates with what would've been said if I put the actual next chapter in.
