Rose Williams, a swarthy girl with black hair a yellow hoodie and her friend, Ana a blond-haired, blue-eyed cat-chimera in blue jumped into the mix as Benny was bruised and battered.
Angry rioters were trying to attack Robbie and other people were defending him. The boy was also in a battle with the clever devisor of this plan and being rammed into the wall by Phil.
Rose was defending Benny, but she wondered if she had made bad judgement. Robbie was being hurt more.
Robbie was very dizzy and pretty sure that blood was in his eye. Phil was suddenly kicked in the arm by a tall, lean boy with a blue hoodie and a red vest over it and a skateboard in hand. Robbie had met him before. Ish.
“Ah, thanks, Ish M… L… Ik…,” Robbie paused to think. “Uh, what’s your last name again? Actually, I’ll ask you later. We don’t have time to ask that question just yet. I mean, everyone’s fighting so we should do something rather then talking for hours. I mean—”
“Exactly,” interrupted Ish. “Come along. Ah!”
“You traitor to being a reindeer chimera!” cried a boy, punching Ish in the face. Ish ducked the second punch. Robbie made a step to help him, but in a flash, he was lifted up by Phil again and thrown into the wall, ten feet above the floor. The lad was soon pounded again and again on the wall when Phil was hit by a book and fell to the ground. Robbie landed safely on the ground, although his head was very hurt. Robbie couldn’t locate the person who threw the book. He saw the book was about something called “Advanced Organic Chemistry by Silvia Wood.”
He was soon surrounded again by kids, each attempting to beat him up. And, sure, Robbie was hailed as a hero but he still couldn’t fight forever. At last, Phil flew by and threw him into the wall. He had a thing for coming back to beat him up. It hurt much as Robbie’s head was repeatedly thrown against the wall. Blood gushed from his head and the cat chimera began to wonder if he would receive permanent brain injury when Phil was kicked to the side by a swarthy girl with a yellow hoodie and a top hat.
“Hi, Rose,” Robbie greeted weakly. “You still have the hat I see. Do you always wear yellow? No, you were wearing blue that one time. I thought you were defending Benny.”
“Ana’s taking care of it,” she replied. “and Benny is not helpless. Now kids are in danger, and we need to help—”
Before Rose could finish , Phil leapt upon them, and for many minutes he fought them both, neither sides winning. Phil was outnumbered but the common house-fly was perhaps the most agile beast on the planet. So they battled until at last Rose kicked him in the stomach. Robbie grabbed him before he could recover.
“Well, now Phillie,” said Robbie, with a smile. “Here you are, single-handedly defeated by yours truly. I think it says in second Samuel chapter one verse twenty-seven…” his voice trailed off as he caught sight of Mr. Mace entering the room, as if his eyes placed within the boy a feeling of guilt. The man slowly clapped and as he did so, all in the room saw him and went still. As the agents took children away to detention, Robbie felt like he should be sorry for something, but what it was, he knew not.
