"We call this court adjourned." The judge said as he pounded his mallet. "Ha!" the DA told herself. Ali went out of the courtroom with the gang following close behind her. "You just wait..." she told them seeing the Press outside. "No comment.." she said as she got through the people and walked down the steps of the court house, and down the road. It was getting real dark. Not many people could see Ali, she was wearing a black t-shirt with a jacket over top of it. Long jeans that were colored black with designs on them.
Ali was a previous gang banger but it was a kill or be killed situation. She dropped out soon after seeing one of her friends brothers being killed because of a stupid agreement between him and the gang. Now, Ali was sent to fight in court against the gang, for first degree murder.
This is wack one of the guys from the gang said as he walked down the street, opposite from Ali. Come on guys.. He said going into an old abandoned warehouse. She aint gon get us on this yall. She aint got no proof. Only her stupid eyes.. he said. Shut up moron.. one of the other guys said, hitting the other in the stomach..
Im gonna do it.. I will get them sent to prison Ali said, walking down the street. AHHH! someone screamed as Ali was walking by an alley. Ali saw a small girl curled up in the corner of an alley with a large man standing over her. I told you not to scream! the man said and slapped the girl. now shut up! he said and grabbed the girl by the arm and went to walk away with her. You couldnt really see the girl. She had a black t-shirt on, that was tore in the sleeve. She had a pair of blue jeans on, tore at both knees. Yo! Leave her alone, ese! Ali shouted at the man as the guy took off running, leaving the girl behind. Ali ran over to the girl who was now in the corner of the alley crying.
You alright? Ali asked as she kneeled down to the girl. The girl flinched and hid more, she said nothing. I aint gonna hurt you Ali said as she put her hand, gently on the girls knee. The girl opened her eyes slightly, she was still quiet. You okay? Ali asked again, the girl nodded slowly. Ali sat down beside the girl, did he hurt you? the girl nodded looking to the ground. He hurt you bad? Ali asked. The girl shook her head curling up more in the corner trying to hide the scratches on her face from the man slapping her. Ali had seen the scratches before the girl had turned, Whats ya name? Ali asked the girl, Do-Donquel the girl managed to say.. oh. Donquel? thats a nice name.. Ali said in a soothing voice. Donquel was starting to relax, she was feeling safer when Ali was around. Im Ali.. she said wiping the tears that that were rolling down Donquels cheek. Donquel flinched when Ali touched her but calmed down a few seconds after. Im not gonna hurt you, dear.. Ali said in a gentle tone. Donquel nodded crying a little still. Ali carefully hugged Donquel. Donquel clung to Ali tightly. Ali kept Donquel close as the girl curled up in Alis arms. No ones gonna hurt you now.. Ali said as she held Donquel close. th-thank y-you Donquel managed to say. mhmm.. Ali said in a quiet tone as she started rubbing Donquels back. Donquel was a little calmer now, being with Ali and all.
So how old are you? Ali asked the girl, still trying to keep her calm. I-Im 16... Donquel said as she started to feel rain on her head. Aww.. Thats cute Im 18... Ali said. Donquel looked up a little. Will he come back?
