Cindy never felt like going to school, instead she would rather stay home and watch TV. Her friends Jaime and Amberlynn always looked out for her.

During lunch Cindy noticed another student looking at her. It was the boy Bobby Wallace, Jaime’s x-boyfriend. Jaime broke up with bobby because he was abusive towards her. Walking home from school that day Bobby drove by Cindy and asked her did she need a ride home. Cindy was unsure, but decided to go with him because she was eager to get home and tell her mom the news of how her English teacher asked her to draw for the school newspaper at school that day.
