Chapter 1: Prologue
Kim Crawford, the blonde black belt beauty that everyone loves, or is afraid of. Well at least she makes everyone see her that way. Kim has a horrible home life, and none of her friends know. Kim's father Chuck has been abusing her ever since his wife, and her mother Crystal left him. He was abusing Crystal claiming that she was cheating on him, when really all she was trying to do was get little six year old Kim a therapist. About three years later she got fed up with it and left. Kim always thought that she had done something to make her mom leave, that's why she doesn't tell anyone and takes the beatings, because she thinks that it is her fault. Now Kim is fifteen, a sophomore in high school and battling the world with her awesome best friends. There's Milton the nerdy one that Kim secretly loves because he cares a lot more about her than she thinks that he should. Jerry the slightly idiotic one that has an amazing sense of humor, but only when he is not trying. Rudy their sensei that Kim has come to love like a father, even though he is just a giant three year old. Then there's Jack Kim's best friend, Jack is the one that protects her, and can tell when something is wrong, he is the one that Kim is in love with, but Jack can never know that Kim likes him. He can also never know that her dad beats her up, she has gotten very good at makeup skills ever since this has started, so she can cover up all of her injuries with ease, well this one is harder. Kim's father just got her report card in the mail, and in one of Kim's classes she has an A- because she got two questions wrong on a test. This was the angriest that Kim has ever seen her father. She has a black eye, a busted lip, two huge bruises on her stomach, a cut on her calf, and a sprained ankle. There is no way to cover up her lip and her limp for her sprained ankle. What is she going to tell everyone?
