I have been notified several times as to my mistake for putting Outcast on the list twice. Thanks for letting me know, but I have decided that you may use the second Outcast for any topic that you want. It is now officially a wild card. Good luck to all of you who are working on this challenge! Still have a long list ahead of me...
Still have a long list ahead of me...
Summary: He never saw it coming. I did, but there was nothing I could do about it.
"Hey, Danny, rough night?" I asked, looking at my best friend who currently possessed dark bags under his eyes. It seemed to take him great effort in order to lift his head up and look at me with his answer, which came out as slurred speech.
"Yeah, had to fight Skulker, Ember, Technus, Youngblood, the Box Ghost eight times, as well as a painful visit from the wonderful Lord Fruit loop."
"Wow, I didn't realize it was that bad!" I said no doubt the concern was evident in my voice."
"Don't worry, it's no problem. I can handle it." Something told me that Danny didn't even believe himself. As I matched his slow pace on the way to class I heard some commotion behind us. I turned and gasped.
Dash, who has really picked up the habit of bullying Danny, had just thrown a football in our direction. Instantly, I knew its destination was Danny's head. I only got to open my mouth before ─ thwack! The ball connected with its intended target.
Danny, being caught off guard and exhausted crumpled to the ground as his legs gave out. Poor Danny! He never saw it coming. I did, but there was nothing I could do about it. If only I known earlier, I could have protected him.
I knelt down, "Are you okay?" His face turned towards me and gave me a half-hearted glare. "Sorry, standard question." I added as I helped lift him up. By this time everybody left to go to their respected classes leaving only Danny and I in the hall.
"I know that this is a little late, but look out!"
