Blake was dribbling his basketball when he suddenly stopped as he saw Richard going to soccer practice that day. Blake gave a smirk and continued dribbling.
Today was 13-08-2014. Exactly one year since 13-08-2013. Today's date might not have been a special day for anyone in the school. Not even 15 year old Blake remember it and neither could 16 year old Richard remember anything. But today's date was a day that changed Richard's life altogether and perhaps the reason that changed Blake's future.
Richard was never the school jock he was now. He was never the popular kid. In fact he was the shy kid entering adolescence standing in a corner during lunch. Some people would even make fun of him. But all this changed on 13-08-2013. Blake was the same as Richard and lived across the community park near Richard's house.
Richard went to the drinking water fountain after his soccer practice. He drank some water, washed his face and raised up his face to see Blake standing there with a smirk. Richard went up to him, pushed him by the shoulder and said, "I've had it enough, I've seen you stare at me like a million times you freak! What do you want weirdo?". Blake replied, "I know what you did last year Richard, I remember it, and I sure am in no mood to let you forget it." Richard's face went a little pale. "What... What do you know? what are you talking about?", Richard said.
Blake shrug off his shoulders and started walking away and said in a low voice, "let's say I like to take a walk to the community park at midnights". Richard started sweating ,"dude you don't know anything about this, don't tell anyone, who have you talked to about this?", said Richard running after Blake. "Relax, your secret is safe till you keep following my instructions.", Blake said. "What do you mean?"asked Richard. "I own you now, whatever I say you do, you do my homework, make all your cool friends hang out with me, give me a place at your group's lunch table at cafeteria, basically every freaking wish of mine is your command!"
The next few weeks went like hell for Richard. He was made to do Blake's homework, assignments, projects and even mow Blake's backyard. He hardly could meet his friends and whenever he did , he was forced to take Blake along with him.
Then it was prom time. The time that all teenagers had been waiting for. Richard had made special plans for his sweetheart Ginnie. Ginnie was the most beautiful cheerleader of their school and had been dating Richard for the past 4 months. They were truly in love. Richard was planning to hire a Limo for her when he picked up his phone and Blake just called him. "I want to meet you in the community park right now!"
Richard put on a shirt and went to the park. "Well Richard, I'll cut the chase, you know that prom's near right?" said Blake. "yeah! What do you want?" Richard replied. "I don't have any date for the prom.", Blake said. "What do you expect ME to do about it?"- Richard. "So, I want Ginnie to go to the prom with me."- Blake
"Dude you're just crossing the line, She's my girlfriend!! and besides, she will never go out with you in a million years!!", Richard said. "Oh then would she go out with a murderer ?" Blake replied.
It was true, Richard had killed a guy named Johny on 13-08-2013. Johny was his 19 years old bully from the block. He would take advantage of Richard's fears and bully him to do things Richard didn't want to. That particular Johny had asked Richard for his mom's bra and when Richard refused, Johny started beating him up. Richard couldn't take no more and hit Johny on his head with a brick. Johny started crawling to the gates and when Richard saw a car coming by, he pushed Johny towards the road and the car hit Johny running over him completely to result in Johny's death. Richard ran away into the park as fast as he could and made his way home from the fence. The driver told the police that he saw someone pushing the dead guy but no one would believe him as he was drunk driving. The wound on Johny's head was lost from his face being smashed by ramming between the car and a tree.
This day had changed Richard's life forever. When he found out that he had gotten away with the crime, he became more confident, or to say, fearless. Now, he had started being more open to others, started to display his amazing soccer skills and gradually became a popular kid in his school. What he didn't know was that Blake had seen this when he came to let his dog pee at night.
Richard had no option now, he had to convince Ginnie somehow. He forced her to go to the prom with Blake. He was sitting outside the hall where the prom was going on, feeling helpless, just when Ginnie came out crying. She looked at Richard and said, "I'm breaking up with you, I don't want anything to do with you or your perverted friend " Ginnie said.
"What did he do? Richard asked."He cupped me" said Ginnie crying and ran away.
Richard was furious by now. He took Blake to the parking lot and held Blake's collar and asked, How dare you try to score second base with my girlfriend?"
To which Blake replied, " Nothing's yours now Richard. I will have your girlfirend, your friends, hell I'll even have your wife. I own you for life bitch!"
Richard couldn't take it anymore. He was could not run like this for life. He responded with what he would do on being cornered, he became violent and punched Blake on the face knocking his teeth out. Blake could only hear a buzzing sound now and his vision was extremely blurred. He started to run towards a wall and climbed up top. on the other side was a car going out the parking lot being driven by two drunk teenagers. Richard pushed Blake to the other side causing Blake to fall down and the car to crash into Blake and Blake's death.
Richard ran away from the scene and nobody even saw him as he was behind the wall. When Richard woke up the next day, he was anxious to go to school. When he reached school and found out that nobody had seen him, He smiled and went to the gym to change into his soccer clothes.
