Sixteen-year-old Sabrina Reeves begged for her life. Tears and snot ran down her face. Her arm hung limply at her side, already shattered from warding off the first couple of blows. Sabrina was defenseless and she knew it, so she begged, trying to stop the attack.
Jess was merciless, listening to the pleading with a smile and egging it on, hoping to hear more reasons to spare Sabrina’s stupid, useless life, as the bat hung menacingly.
Sabrina had not been randomly picked. Drug use and promiscuity were her only contributions to society. Sabrina couldn’t even be bothered to find a minimum wage job to pay for her drugs.
“Please, Jess, don’t do this!” Sabrina shouted at Jess. “I’ll change! I can do it! Just give me a chance!”
Jess was growing tired of the repetitive pleas. Sabrina wasn’t very imaginative. Her reasons for wanting to live were selfish and asinine. Jess brought up the bat and took a two handed grip. Sabrina screamed, raising her good arm to defend against the blow that was coming. Jess swung. The aluminum bat made a dull ringing noise as it hit Sabrina’s skull, right above the ear. Blood exploded from the wound. It sprayed the bat, the wall, and the floor.
Sabrina was knocked over from the force. The world was moving even though she wasn’t. The pain was consuming. Her arm hurt and tingled. Her head hurt, both on the outside and the inside. Despite the pain, she tried to convince herself it was a nightmare; one that she desperately needed to wake up from.
Jess swung the bat again, this time in a more downward motion. It caught Sabrina’s shoulder. There was a cracking sound and the bat recoiled. It sent shockwaves up Jess’s arms.
