Bad Blood

Jenna collected her books from the floor, ignoring the laughter; the year was almost over and she would never have to deal with them again. She made her way down D Hall when Tim stepped in front of her, one of the dozen-or-so cowards who stood by the sides of her bullies, doing nothing. He unraveled a lengthy apology as his eyes welled up, unable to maintain eye contact and detailing the guilt he felt for not helping her; he never asked for forgiveness, in fact he said he didn’t deserve it, he just wanted her to know he was capable of shame.
