The Big Moments

Chapter Text

On his first day of high school Warren gets beaten up by an older guy. The attack is unprovoked and leaves Warren with a bloody nose and a deep sense of shame as people gather around to watch.

A girl comes to his defence, grabbing his attacker’s arm. “Hey, leave him alone. He’s just a kid.” The guy laughs and leaves Warren on the floor. Warren’s humiliation only grows as word spreads around school that he needed a girl to protect him.

He eventually forgets the name of the guy who beat him up, but he never forgives the girl.
