The story of 'Babe'

Babe's father works in construction and goes away for two weeks, leaving her in the care of her brother, Has, and his friend, Zola. School is out and there's not much to do. Finding herself with time on her hands, Babe comes across a local boxing studio. There, she runs into Michelle - the local bully who has an eye on Zola - before stealing an old punchbag that she finds in the corner. When she gets home, she keeps the bag and her theft a secret and starts to teach herself how to box. When Babe is insulted by Michelle again, she tells her some awful gossip that she has heard from Zola and Michelle chases her down the street before losing her. The next night, Has leaves Babe alone to go on a date with his dream girl, Chrissie Miller. He gives his keys to Zola, who has an unhealthy interest in Babe. When he arrives, he tries to kiss her but Babe uncomfortably goes to bed. Shortly afterwards, Michelle bangs on the door repeating the chain of gossip that she has heard before spitting in Zola's face. Zola returns to the apartment and enters Babe's room. Scared, she tries to leave before she tries to use the skills she has taught herself to escape. However, she does not stand a chance and Zola rapes her. Has returns, finds out what has happened, and does nothing. The next day, still in shock and overwhelmed by the feeling that she is in some way responsible for what has happened to her, Babe returns the stolen punchbag in the hope that it will clear her mind of the tragic occurrence.
