While I was at lunch. My school is divided into two courtyards, separated by a small hallway. My friends and I were sitting in the left courtyard, eating our lunch when suddenly a milk carton fell from the sky and splattered all over a friend of mine. She was furious and demanded to know who was responsible. After doing some looking around, we figured out it had been thrown over the hallway, so she let it go, assuming it was an accident, until she saw a guy standing at the window, pointing and laughing at her. Then one of his friends came over and told us that he was the one that threw it. She tore out towards his courtyard to "even the score" and I was sent after her to try and reel her back. When I arrived, however, she had already dumped her drink on him and he, in retaliation, was throwing another milk carton at her. When she hit him in the chest, he proceeded to try and hit her, so I got in the way and moved his hand into the wall (causing him to squeal out in pain.) When he got over that little pain, he tried to hit me, so I moved out of the way, pulling my friend with me, making it seem like I was cowering. Once she was safely out of the way, he came again and I ducked and moved, leaving my right foot for him to trip, and after he did I kicked him in the back of the shin, forcing him to the ground. His friend then decided to come up and try to punch me, so I ducked out of the way in a sort of cowering position, but really I was setting up for an elbow to his solar plexus (which worked out perfectly). The first guy was getting up, but fortunately a friend of mine arrived with his scary words of "Don't ********** touch him" which stopped them long enough for the police to arrive and pull us apart. When I explained to them that I was just trying to get my friend out of the way of getting hit, and everything that happened after that was an accident, they told me it was okay, to tell them next time, and not take so many risks, because next time I might not get so lucky. No punishment at all because no one believed anything I did was conscious, even the kick looked like a misstep. So I went to my class and was met with a thousand questions about what happened until someone decided to talk down to me, telling me I looked like an idiot, thinking I could do something. I guess this is sort of me tooting my own horn, but I kind of want to know if anybody else has ever been in a situation like this, where they LOOKED like they were just flailing around but actually coordinated their movements.
