Not my gif.
This was requested by @itsall-inmy-head and this was a challenge for me to write. At my school we have a super strict bullying policy and I never have witnessed bullying. But I gave it my best shot.
“Seriously, how is anyone that fat?”
“Why is he even with her?”
You hear all the whispers walking down the hall. You hug your cardigan tighter around you. Girls giggle and a boy sticks his foot out, causing you to trip over it. Your books fly out of your hands and everyone laughs. You gather your things and rush to your hiding spot behind the bleachers. You cry and curl your legs to your chest. You feel so useless and you feel like a burden. You look at your phone and it vibrates with messages.
[Nice fall, fatty]
[I would have taken a video but I didn’t want your
stupid face to break my camera]
You try to brush them off along with your tears but the next text hits you hard.
[Brett is only with you because he feels sorry for you]
Your light cries turn to sobs and you sob into your shirt. Brett has been your boyfriend for almost a year now and he was your first boyfriend, your first kiss, your first. Even though you are part of the McCall pack, Brett and you were close and loved each other.
After about an hour of crying and no one coming to your rescue, you walk home. Your parents didn’t know about you being bullied. No one did. No one knew except Brett. Brett only found out because he heard girls being mean to you at the lacrosse game. You go to your room and cry yourself to sleep.
Brett got a call from Scott about an hour after you went home asking Brett where you were. Brett goes to your house to find you asleep and covered in tissues and runny mascara. He moves the phone that’s in your hand when the phone vibrates. Another text from another girl.
[Brett must be cheating on you]
Brett can feel himself getting angrier and angrier by the second. He grabs your phone and comes downstairs. Scott and the pack arrived to look for you.
“Did you know about this?!” Brett asks. He shoves Scott. Liam growls at Brett, ready to fight but Scott steps in front.
“Know about what?” Scott asks. Brett gives him the phone and Scott reads all the texts. Lydia takes the phone and reads the texts herself.
“We had no idea.” Scott whispers.
“How? How did you not know?!” Brett yells again.
“Because I didn’t tell them.” You say, surprising everyone. You walk down the steps and sit on the final step. “It’s not something I want to brag about.”
“TELL THEM WOULDN’T BE BRAGGING! It would be asking for help!” Brett shouts at you. It makes you flinch and Brett immediately regrets yelling. The group leaves Brett and you alone to speak.
“Why didn’t you tell me it was this bad?” He sits next to you. You shrug. “Baby, you have to tell someone.”
“Why? It’s not gonna stop them.” You stare at your bare feet. Brett cups your cheek and kisses you. You smile into the kiss and sigh.
“None of the things they were telling you are true.” You shrug again and Brett pulls you close. The pack comes back and Lydia smiles.
“No one likes them now.” She smiles and hugs you.
“I’ll walk you to class everyday, (Y/N).” Liam smiles and walks outside with Lydia. Scott sits by you guys.
“I’m not leaving until I know you forgive me.” Scott smiles. So you, Scott and Brett stay together at your house until you feel better. Stiles showed up with the boy who tripped you and made him apologize. At the end of the day, you knew you would be okay and things would get better.
