A/N: Alright, this is really sort-of a first for me, writing an ACTUAL story and putting it up. So don't kill me, Please! It's really been a while since I've written anything and I'm a bit rusty.
Summary: Alex Waterworth get gets bullied by a, well, bully, and a fight breaks out. Alex has to get reconstructive surgery, and is about to find out what the guy in the other hospital bed means by "You don't want to know."
"Hey dweeb, I said gimme your damn lunch money!"
"No! I'm sick and tired of giving it to you, Dan! You have your own!"
"That may be true, but I'm saving up for a car. So fork it over, Waterworks!"
"It's Waterworth! Wa-ter-worth! Say it right or don't say it at all!"
Dan Meyers always bullied Alex Waterworth for lunch money. Alex was 16, a sophmore, had brown hair, hazel eyes, and a standard build. Dan was 17, a junior, and was the quarterback of the Sinfield High School football team. Alex was a shrimp to Dan, and was an easy victim. Now, Dan being a grade higher than him also made matters worse. And since the teachers didn't give a crap about what happened in the hallways, school grounds, or really anywhere, Dan could bully him right in front of any teacher and they wouldn't stop him. It was Security you had to watch out for. They'd come down any hallway and put any kid in detention for no reason whatsoever.
Times were always like this. Until one day…
"I SAID NO! You don't get my money today! I haven't eaten lunch in weeks because of you! I intend to do it today, though. Don't you have someone else to pick on?" Alex clearly wasn't interested in giving up his money today. Dan started to twitch a bit.
"Just give me the money and nobody gets hurt."
"Eh, up yours." Alex started to walk away. This was the biggest mistake he'll forever regret. Dan ran up behind him and pushed him down on the floor. A crowd of students gathered round yelling FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! over, and over and over. Alex got up, and brushed himself off. "So you want to fight, eh? I've been waiting for this day." Alex tried to punch him in the stomach. Blocked. Go for the face? Blocked again. But then he came up with a plan. He went for the face again, and Dan's arms locked into blocking position as fast as they could. Alex then kicked his parts. Ouch. Dan was on the floor, in pain. But somehow, he was able to get up and learn from his mistake.
Now it was Dan's turn. He tried to kick the same spot. Alex dodged it. He tried the stomach. Nothing. Alex then calmed down a bit. "Dan, we can't keep going like this. What if security is around the co-" POW. Dan kicked him in the face. Blood spattered everywhere on the floor. Alex now had what appeared to be a broken nose, and a bleeding ear. But Alex was right. Security heard the yells from the crowd that surrounded the two. They immediately rushed around the corner and attempted to catch Dan, who was now running down the hallway. "Get the nurse. We have an injury." One talked into a walkie-talkie on his belt. The nurse, who was down about seven doors, came rushing down the hallway with a few students to help with Alex. Alex was then taken to the hospital and was X-rayed. The results were bad. Alex needed reconstructive surgery done on his nose. The cartilage was too torn up to ever heal again. The set date was Wednesday, two days from then. For now he was confined to a hospital bed in a two-bed room. Suddenly, another patient came in. Alex didn't know what was going on with him, because he seemed just fine.
"Hey there," the guy answered. He looked to be the same age as Alex.
"Hi. What's your name?"
"Seth. Seth Ogdenworth."
"I'm Alex Waterworth. Hey, are you from around here? I've never seen you before."
"Nah, I live in a different county than this. This was the only hospital that does what I'm here for."
"You don't want to know." But Alex was soon to find out.
