I sat on the third step of stair on the staircase and sighed. I was feeling a bit different today and I could tell, my head was running a question and my mind was running another question I couldn’t understand, I was just so confused. But I know all was focused on Elsa. And then the question asked clearly in my head.
Do I like Elsa?
Of course I do not, I replied for myself immediately, stood up and head to my room,
I quickly opened the door and walked in to see Elsa slowly sitting up and cleaning her eyes, she Turned to me and called me in the most sweetest and calm voice ever.
“Yeah?” I replied. “You’re awake!”
“Yeah, looks like I just needed a little bit of sleep I am feeling better already!” she said.
She moved her black hair back and she breathed in and out slowly, she was still sleepy I could tell. And why didn’t I notice how pretty she was since.
She didn’t look her age at all she was super cute and I just didn’t know how I found myself completely lost and staring at her.
Suddenly her voice snapped me back to life.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked.
“I don’t… I… UhUh yeah so I just went downstairs and I met Dessera, she said my mom called and said you should please stay for dinner!” I told her.
“Uh, I don’t think I can and your mom, she has been at the hospital for a pretty long time, won’t she come back home and sorry I can’t stay for dinner, my dad might have gotten tired staying with my mom” she said and got down from the bed.
“Uh… Okay I understand!” I said.
She walked up to the desk and sat on her seat which she normally seats on that’s beside mine.
“So what about the work I gave you, are you done with it?” Elsa asked checking my book to see if I was done with it.
“Yes” I replied.
I was acting weird and I know it but I didn’t know what to do.
It’s like a weird feeling when you know something is wrong with you but you can’t tell what that something is and how can you solve what you don’t understand.
“Jason come over here!” Elsa suddenly ordered and I walked up to her. “what’s wrong?” I asked.
“You solved this one the wrong way!” she said cleaning her eyes.
Yeah she’s still sleepy.
“Okay how was I supposed to solve it?” I asked.
“Move your chair closer and listen attentively.” she ordered and I moved my chair closer to her and she grabbed my pen.
She starts to explain the topic very low and quietly and it was quite… I was very confused with what I was thinking.
I needed help, cause being close to her like this was making my heart beat like crazy.
“Jason? Jason?” Elsa called me and was looking at me like she was going to loose it.
“Are you even listening to me?” she asked with a sigh.
I moved back a bit.
“Uh sorry, I was quite lost!” I apologized.
“Lost? Okay? Did you impregnate someone, are you going to be a father or what the hell are you thinking about!” she asked with her voice getting high.
“No I am not going to be father!” I replied immediately.
“Then why are you so lost? What are you thinking about? You’re eighteen you’re not supposed to be zoning out every now and then”
She was tired, she let out a sleepy sigh and dug her fingers into her hair and then pull her hair out.
“To be honest, I am still sleepy!” she said.
Yeah I know that.
“But my work here is to teach you not to sleep on your bed and make myself at home.” Elsa joked.
“Well I don’t mind that!” I tell her.
“Very funny, now please just pay attention” she pleaded and I nodded.
Elsa explained the whole equation to me from the beginning and I tried my best not to get lost in thought again, and I did and finally understood the question better.
Well I did understand the question earlier but I don’t know why I did it wrong.
“Now try solving it again!” Elsa said and moved the book closer to my side and dropped the pen on the book.
“Okay” I said and grabbed the pen and book.
I start to solve the equation while Elsa rest her head on the desk and watched me and I almost freaked out at how fast my heart starts to beat.
Well she has watched me a dozen times attempting to different question. Why is my body acting so stupid right now.
“Why are your hands shaking?” Elsa suddenly ask me raising her head up.
“They’re not shaking your eyes are just seeing things!” i rolled my eyes.
Were they shaking??
Fuck! I’m screwed.
“Yeah I guess so, maybe my sleepy eyes are still seeing things” she sighed.
I wanted to say she should go to the bed and sleep all she wants and not torture herself but it was like she read my mind cause she immediately said. “And don’t tell me to go to sleep cause I won’t!”.
I smiled and she rolled her eyes.
“Do you know you’re a witch!” I tell her.
“I’m a fairy, you obviously see things differently” she replied making me want to laugh.
She’s classic with her jokes.
“And how did you know I was about to say that? About sleeping?” I asked curiously waiting for her reply and also attempting to the question.
“Because that’s the power of a fairy!” she replied.
“tch!” I laughed. “No that’s the power of a witch!”
“Okay, if you say I’m a witch, what witchy character have you seen me exhibit lately?” she asked.
Well you’re making my heart beat like the unusal and I can’t stop thinking about wanting you to make you smile, how is that not witchy, I’ve never felt this way before.
I wanted to say all that to her but that would make me look stupid and that is way too childish.
“First you just read my mind and lately you’ve been reprimanding me, how is that not witchy!” I laughed.
“You are so dumb!” she scoffed.
“Well technically I’m very dumb from your own point of view!” I added.
“Not only from my point of view and I also think, you’re stubborn, two headed and, a jerk” She said looking at the window.
“All that for just me, I am the most sweetest boy anyone can ever meet!” I said.
She turned to me immediately. (“Never call yourself sweet!”
“Why? I am sweet!” I laughed.
“You’re totally the opposite of sweet” she laughed too.
At least I made her laugh…
She suddenly cleared her throat and gave me a look.
“What?” I asked scared of the suspicious look.
“That reminds me. Have you apologized to Krystal yet?” she asked.
“Why are you asking?” I threw back the question.
“Because I want to know what type of guy-
“I apologized already!” I Lied cutting her off.
“Oh really? And what did she say about it?” she asked suspiciously.
“She told me not to worry about it and… And…
“You know I can tell you’re lying!” she said. And I could perfectly tell she wasn’t sleepy anymore and it was because of the small talk we just had.
“And I’m done!” I quickly changed the subject handing my book over to her.
She scanned my book with her suspicious eyes and gave me a look.
“You’re correct, now I just have an hour before I leave, we can work on one topic before I leave!” she said and I nodded.
She turned to me with a smile. Wait why is she smiling? Not that it’s a bad thing or so, it just made her look pretty.
She began, “You know it’s weird but, I like how you listen and agree to everything I say, it’s well… it’s lovely!”.
“Why did you have to tell me that, now I have to not listen and disagree with everything you say” I joked and she huffed.
I like joking or teasing her, her reactions are always priceless.
“You are one beast Jason!” she shook her head.
“maybe I should audition for the beast part in our school play, beauty and the beast!” I smiled and she rolled her eyes.
We started to work on another topic and honestly and I don’t even know where my mind keeps flying to, I was always lost, is this a new disease or what?
But Elsa is right in front of me what else would I be thinking of.
Okay wait. That was too much of me to think.
Elsa got frustrated when I asked her to repeat what she just explained like five times.
“Where the hell is your mind Jason?” she almost yelled.
“Sorry, I’m sorry if you just explain it again I promise I’ll listen!” I pleaded.
She sighed and placed both her hands on my shoulder.
She leaned closer to me. And in a whisper she began “Look! If you have gotten any girl pregnant, you can tell me, it can be just you, me and the girl and we will all think about it okay?” she said and I moved back letting her hand fall from my shoulder.
“What the hell? I did not pregnate any girl!” I rolled my eyes.
She held my face and I almost blew up when her hands gripped my cheeks. “Then get a grip! What the hell are you thinking about!??” she asked shaking my head and I Immediately pulled her hands down away from my face.
“Okay, I apologize and I promise I’ll listen!” I pleaded and she sighed.
“This is the last time!” she warned and I nodded.
Well I didn’t screw up this time, I listened as she explained and solved it correctly at the end of everything…
She gave me a few more to solve and said she was going to get a bottled water from the kitchen that was she was very thirsty, and then she blamed me for being thirsty cause apparently I’ve been making her talk more than usual.
Elsa came back telling me my mom was back and she’s been in her room for almost three hours without us knowing.
She checked my work and was happy and less frustrated with how I got them right and then with a few assignment she gave me, she starts to park her things ready to leave.
I walked out of Jason’s room and he walked behind me as I did.
I never forget to mention about apologizing to Krystal tomorrow to him and he just rolled his eyes and told me he’d apologize whenever he’s ready.
Jason escorted me out of the door and I was shocked when he entered the streets with me.
“Are you planning to go home with me?” I asked as I stood firm holding my bag.
“I can if you want me to!”
He teased, just like he’s always doing.
“You should better run home before your mom calls the cops on me saying I’ve kidnapped her son!” I tell him and he laughed.
“oh well I guess I better go back too, ’cause I’m being totally nice but you’re just pushing me away, it’s fine, I’ll just go home!” He shrugged.
“Awwn that’s sad! Cause I totally like rude Jason!” I teased.
Definitely love the nice Jason.
At least it’s less stress.
“You’re impossible!” he rolled his eyes and starts to walk away. I laughed and head my way too.

Jesus! This girl is bad.
Even after all the warning signs I gave her, she still went ahead to tell me.
“Really Xavier?” Mom asked and hastily moved towards me, before I could move away, her hand were already firmly on my ear.
She pulled me by the ear while I winced.
“Mom? It hurts!” I whined.
“What did I tell you about Delaney before going to school?” She asked, with a- stern-like voice.
“That I should take care of her.” I grumbled.
“And did you?” She asked.
I kept shut and tried to freed her grip on my ear but she twisted it painfully.
“Ouch!” I groaned.
“Answer me Xavier!” She ordered.
“I didn’t. Jeez mom, my ear hurts already.” I groaned.
“Seriously? You’re so stubborn.” She said and rolled her eyes.
“Delaney, go up and freshen up. I’ll come meet you shortly.” Mom said, still twisting my ear.
“Okay ma’am.” She giggled lightly.
Mom smiled lightly and pulled me by my ear and walked towards the stairs.
I glared at Delaney while she stared blankly at me.
I got back from school and I was damn tired.
I went to my room and had a quick shower.
I wore my clothes and went down to the kitchen.
I opened the pots and I was damned when I didn’t even find a leftover.
“Dang it!” I cussed angrily.
Mom and grandma weren’t home and they didn’t even bother to even leave if it’s just a leftover for me.
My stomach grumbled noisily, reminding me that I’ve got to feed it.
Having no other option, I drank a lot of water and dragged my tired and hungry self back to my room.
As I laid on the bed, my room door suddenly creaked opened and mom walked in.
“Hey Alicia, you’re back.” She said the obvious.
“Well, as you can see.” I rolled my eyes and turned to another direction.
Well, get your butt of the bed and wear something nice. We’re going out.” She said.
I snapped my head to look at her and sat on my bed.
“What’s the occasion mom? What are we celebrating?” I asked with a smile.
“Nothing special. Let’s just say I got a new job with a good pay.” She shrugged.
“Oh mom! That’s good news.” I smiled.
“Alright, so hurry up before I change my mind.” She said and walked out of my room.
“Yes!” I smiled elatedly.
I got down from my bed and hurriedly got to my wardrobe, looking for something nice to wear.
I wonder where we’re going to.
I got into the house and as usual, I was expecting to see an empty house apart from the maids, but I was damn so shocked to see my both parent seating on the sofa and watching TV.
“Mom? Dad?” I called surprisingly and walked up to them.
“Hey princess.” Mom beamed and walked to hug me.
I let her hug me but I was still so shocked to find them both at home.
“Welcome princess.” Dad smiled lightly.
“What the… What happened? Why are you guys home? I thought you were supposed to be home by the end of the month.
But you’re home now.” I voiced out, still finding it hard to believe that my parent were both home.
Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t unhappy to see my parent but it’s a shocker to see them.
Anytime my parent are about leaving and give me a particular date they’d be home, they’ll never fulfill their promise.
They’ll always have an excuse to extend their stay.
But this time around today, they are home, more earlier than I imagined.
“We just decided to surprise you.” Mom beamed happily.
“Really? Surprise indeed.” I said nonchalantly, like I didn’t care but I do care.
“So, princess, freshen up and get dressed. We’re going out.” Dad smiled.
“What? We’re going out!” I half yelled happily, not believing my ears.
“Yes dear.” Mom said.
“Hope this isn’t a joke?” I asked sternly.
“Of course not.” Dad said and smiled.
I got dressed and my parent and I got into one of the cars; a red Bugatti Veyron.
I smiled and watched the view happily as the chaffeur drove off.
I admired the beautiful tall skyscrapers and other beautiful buildings.
Not as if I fancy them or something but for the fact that I was happy made me gaze admiringly at them.
The chaffeur finally pulled over in front of a classic restaurant and we alighted.
I removed my sunshade glasses and walked elegantly with my parent into the restaurant.
I chatted with my parent as we ate on our meal.
If felt so good to finally seat, eat and talk calmly with them, without me getting angry like I would do when I’m being told about their departure again.
After we were done eating and drinking, I decided we dropped by at the Mall to get some stuffs I needed.
Mum and dad were still in the car and I stepped out before then, headed for the entrance. But unfortunately, a clumsy lady bumped into me.
“Hey! Are you blind??” I snapped at her.
“Seriously?” She scoffed.
That face! She looked really familiar.
“You????” We both exclaimed at the same time.
“What the f**k are you doing here? And why’re you always being so clumsy?!” She snapped at me, making me shocked.
She was the same filthy lady my driver had splashed mud water on.
“Seriously?? I think I should be asking you that damn question. What’re you doing here? We actually don’t need low lives in the mall” I scoffed.
“Listen to me, you little brat” she pointed her finger at me.
“I’m not gonna take any more insults from you, okay?”
“Alicia!” A young woman came calling after her.
“Hey! Alicia; what’s wrong? What’s going on, huh?” She asked and held the lady’s hand.
So, Alicia’s her name?
“I unfortunately bumped into an animal, mum” the Alicia girl replied and my eyes widened in shock.
What the heck???
Did she just call me animal??
Immediately, mum and dad showed up.
“Hey! Chelsea, what’s going on?” Mum asked as she stood beside me with dad.
I kept throwing glares at the puppies in front of me.
But then, I noticed something – the young woman was fixing her eyes on dad.
And dad….he was staring back at her as well.
“Clarissa??” He suddenly called out.
“Jerry?” She called out as well.
Hold on; do they know each other or what???

Wait, isn’t this the girl that I took her strange necklace?
She also attends this school?
And that aside, why’s she with Xavier?
Why did they come in together?
Do they know each other?
Different unanswered questions!
Tch, tch, she better don’t have eyes for my Xavier because he’s mine.
As we stepped into the cafeteria, the cafeteria suddenly became noisy as students screamed happily.
I turned and noticed Xavier had a plain look while Chelsea was clingy to him like a magnet would do to a magnetic object.
She had smiles on her face as she placed her arms around Xavier.
The girls were throwing glances at him and it wasn’t just any glance but I really couldn’t tell the kind of look.
But there seemed to be something special in that look they gave him.
But soon enough, the news died down and the students continued eating.
I shrugged and followed them as they walked towards a strange looking thing that the students sat to eat.
Okay, what’s this?
Why’s everything here looking strange to me?
I don’t want to go about causing another humiliation for myself because of my ignorance. And so, I just decided to ask.
“Uhm, Xavier? What’s this that the students are sitting on?” I asked lowly and tapped him lightly on his shoulder.
He turned and glared at me.
“Dumb head.” He muttered and rolled his eyes.
“That’s a booth.” He grumbled lightly.
“Oh!” I nodded my head.
“Wait! Don’t tell me she’s sitting with us?” Chelsea suddenly grunted with a disdainful look.
“I guess so.” Xavier shrugged nonchalantly.
“Xavier?” She whined.
“She can’t seat with us! I don’t want her to seat with us!” She grumbled angrily.
Xavier didn’t say anything but went ahead to seat down.
As I was about to seat down too, she held me firmly by my arm.
“Hey, you don’t belong here, you know? You’re too dirty to seat with us.
You’re classless and you don’t belong here.
You are not supposed to dine with us.” She snorted disgustfully like I’m a piece of trash or dirt.
“I don’t get you Chelsea.” I said lowly and twitched my lips.
Xavier just sat down and watch us.
“Seriously? Are you that dumb? I don’t want you to seat us.” She hissed angrily.
“But Xavier’s mom said he should take care of me at school because it’s my first time.
If I don’t eat here where then will I eat?” I asked and stared at her crumpled face.
She doesn’t know that she looks the devil’s daughter when she’s angry and having that crumpled look.
“Does he even look like he cares? He’s obviously unconcerned.” She said and smirked.
Before I could say anything, she pushed me hard and before I could even hold anything, I landed hard on the floor with my butt.
Some students turned to our directions and I felt so hurt.
Some students laughed mockingly while my head was bent in shame.
Chelsea crouched in front of me and lifted my chin up.
“I don’t want to see you near my Xavier again. Don’t think because you live with him in his house you should feel like a queen.
You definitely don’t stand any chance with him.” She whispered with a taunting grin.
She stood up and patted my hair, “good girl.” She said with a hint of mockery in her voice.
As I tried to stand up, I felt a strong hand around my waist.
I turned and saw Xavier’s friend, the one that had told me that I look pretty.
He helped me up from the floor. Xavier and him threw angry glare at each other before he held my hands and walked away.
We got to another booth and he gestured for me to seat.
Without any hesitation or reluctancy, I succumbed and sat on the booth.
As I sat on my booth and ate, I suddenly started hearing whisperings from the booth beside mine.
I listened raptly and I got to find out that they were talking about the new student and Chelsea.
Now, only for me to take a look and saw Chelsea bullying Delaney when Xavier is there.
I wasn’t happy seeing Delaney being talked rudely and being bullied by Chelsea.
She has no right whatsover!
Though I use girls, I don’t fancy bullying. In fact, I don’t like it one bit.
Xavier couldn’t even do anything but just seat and watched Chelsea hurt Delaney.
Xavier’s is still blind not to see the mesmirizing beauty of Delaney.
He’s still blind not to notice how beautiful she is.
He shouldn’t worry, until I make her mine before he’ll realise how pretty she is.
I feel I’m attracted towards her and I wouldn’t mind having her myself.
I’m going to make sure I have her and Xavier isn’t gonna stand a chance.
“I’m Rio, in case you don’t know.” Xavier’s friend who helped me, said with a small smile.
“Oh! Okay.” I mouthed lowly.
“So, you are Delaney right?” He asked.
“Yeah.” I smiled lightly.
“Hope you like the meal?” He asked sweetly.
I stared at the food in front of me and stared back at him.
“Yes.” I nodded my head with a smile.
“I’m really grateful Rio.” I said sincerely.
“You’re welcome. And don’t worry about Xavier, he’s always like that; he’s the I- don’t- care type but he’ll definitely come around.
And Chelsea, she behaves bitchy sometimes especially when it comes to Xavier.
So, don’t take her actions toward you to heart.” He told me with a smile.
“It’s no big deal. I don’t really care too.” I shrugged plainly and ate slowly from my meal.
“Alright, eat up. Lunch break is almost over.” He urged and smiled at me.
“Uh! Sure.” I mouthed.
After few other subjects, school was finally over.
It wasn’t too much of fun because the students weren’t nice at all.
They didn’t even want to talk nicely to me.
And the obj… Laptop, I had broken due to my ignorance, was taken away and I was given a new one.
The teacher had taught me how to use it and I was quick to grab the teachings.
For the rest of day, I was able to use the laptop: but not perfectly well. At least, I can open it and turn it on and off.
Chelsea was so clingy to Xavier as we were about going home.
She wanted to come along with us but she said she got things to do in the house.
I was glad because I wouldn’t seat with her in the same car with her throwing angry glare at me at intervals.
She hugged Xavier before going over to her ride.
I got inside the car with Xavier and he didn’t even spare me a side glance.
The drive home was very quiet, with no words said between the two of us.
The quietness was so uncomfortable and I couldn’t wait to go home.
We got home and I was the first to alight.
He alighted too and he surprised me by suddenly gripping my arm, pulling me to an abrupt stop.
“Don’t tell mom about what happened at the cafeteria okay?” Xavier warned sternly.
I yanked my hand away from his grip and stared blankly at him.
“That’s for me to decide.” I snorted and walked into the house.
“Delaney!” His mom screamed happily and ran to meet me at the door.
I smiled lightly at her and went into her open arms.
“How was school today? Do you like the school? Were the students nice to you?
Did the things in the school fascinate you?” She asked all at once, not even giving me the chance to say anything.
“Which one am I supposed to answer?” I laughed lightly.
“Oh! My bad! Sorry, I guess I was too elated. So, how was school today?” She asked with a smile.
“It was fine.” I smiled lightly.
“We’ll talk about the school later, so tell me, how was Xavier to you today?” She asked eagerly.
I turned and caught Xavier giving me a warning sign not to say anything.
“Well…” I was suddenly saying when Xavier suddenly interrupted and walked up to meet us.
“Really mom? Have I become invisible that you couldn’t even welcome me?” He scoffed.
“That will wait. Not until Delaney tells me something nice about what you did to school today.” She chuckled lightly, like a young school girl.
“Seriously mom.” He huffed and glared at me.
“So Delaney, tell me. How was Xavier at school today toward you?” She asked.
“Well, he wasn’t nice. He made Chelsea bully me.” I pouted sadly.
The woman turned and glared at him and walked to cover the remaining space between Xavier and her but Xavier moved backwards quickly and widen his eyes in shock.
“What? Just kill me already!” Xavier exclaimed disbelievingly.

“What?” The teacher gasped loudly in shock as she stared wide eyed at the object on the floor.
The whole class attention were now on me and they were gawking at me.
Did I do anything wrong?
“Delaney?” The teacher called and took her gaze from the object to stare at me.
“Why did you do that? Why did you smash the laptop?” She asked still shocked.
She walked closer to meet me on my seat and picked up the object.
“What did you call it? Lap… What? Or lap tight?” I asked as I tried to pronounce what she had called the object.
The whole class suddenly bursted into amusing laughter.
Did I say anything funny?
The teacher chuckled and looked at me awkwardly.
“A laptop, I said. Now, why did you smash the laptop?” She asked, this time, sternly.
“Well ma’am, I thought it would open that way. I tried opening it the way I saw others doing but I couldn’t and I thought that by smashing it, it will open.” I said and fondled nervously with the tip of my hair.
“Really? Where exactly are you from? You don’t know how to open a laptop?” She asked.
“No ma’am. I’ve never seen an object like this before.” I said innocently.
“What? Jeez! What on Earth are you?” She gasped shockingly.
“I…” My statement was cut short when Xavier suddenly spoke up.
“Ma’am Teresa, I bet you don’t want to use the whole day talking to her? The time is ticking, tick-tock.” He said and did the his tongue in a way I couldn’t really understand.
The teacher sighed and looked me.
She shook her head sadly and walked back to where she stood in front of the class.
I turned to look at Xavier and he gave me me an hard glare.
I gulped down nothing and looked away.
The teacher taught and seriously, my mind wasn’t there.
The students were using the laptop or whatever, while I just stared at them like they’re performing some sort of magic.
I yawned lightly and stretched out my tired body.
The sunlight illuminated the room and flashed through my face.
I groaned and turned to the other side of the bed.
After what seems like forever, I finally squinted my eyes opened.
I opened my eyes fully and rubbed them sleepily.
I yawned lightly and sat on top of the strange mattress. But it was so comfy and I really enjoyed my night.
The previous day, the woman took me to her house which I found rather too strange to be called a house.
It wasn’t very big but it still was big.
The structure and everything looked totally different from the one back there at Marazona.
In fact, everything here looks so strange and different from that of Marazona’s.
The woman whom I haven’t quite gotten familiar with, made me take my bath under something like a rain, but she called it *shower*.
Jeez! I haven’t seen something like that before.
She taught me how to use it since I couldn’t; I don’t even know how to use it.
She also gave me strange leaves she called *clothes* for me to wear.
I had wrapped them around my body like I used to do to leaves but she had gawked at me and looked weirdly at me.
She had taken the clothes and wore it for me in a strange way too.
She had called me strange but I don’t know between I and her who’s more strange.
Nothing looks familiar to me.
I walked out of the room and followed the same place we had followed yesternight.
Finally, I got to the sitting room and a sweet smell waft through my nose.
I sniffed in the air and suddenly, my stomach grumbled noisily.
I held my stomach to shut it up from growling noisily.
I haven’t eaten since the previous day and I’m hungry.
I look around the sitting room and I was really bedazzled by the beautiful decorations and strange looking things.
I saw a wide and dark mirror which was on top of something. But the mirror still looked strange.
I moved closer to it and stared at myself but it wasn’t clear.
I couldn’t see myself properly. Back at Marazona, the mirror in my room is placed to stand upright and it’s long and plain glass white.
But this one here is something different.
“Hey.” I heard. I turned swiftly and saw the woman coming towards me.
In broad daylight, I could see her clearly now.
She’s a middle aged woman and she’s tall and pretty.
She had her hair rolled up in a messy bun and she had beads of sweat on her forehead.
She had a smile on her face.
“Good morning.” I greeted calmly.
“Morning dear. What are you doing standing there?” She asked.
“Uhm, nothing. I was just staring at myself on the mirror.” I shrugged.
“Huh? Mirror?” She asked and furrowed her eyebrows.
“Yes, mirror.” I nodded my head and pointed at the black mirror.
She chuckled in amusement and stared at me.
“That’s a tv.” She giggled lightly.
“A … Tv… What?” I stuttered, not wanting to bite my tongue because of how difficult the name sounded.
“A tv.” She said slowly.
“What’s that? What’s a tv?” I asked as I stared at her.
“You know what? We have a lot of things to discuss. I don’t even know your name yet.
But first, breakfast is ready. Let’s eat and after that, we’ll talk better.” The woman said and held my hands.
Without any further hesitation, I followed her.
After the teacher had left, the students started stealing glances at me and whisperings amongst themselves and I need not anyone to tell me that they are whisperings are about me.
“Jeez, I can’t believe her! She acted like a girl from the forest or maybe jungle.” I heard one of the students laughed.
“Seriously Jane, I was really so surprised when she smashed the laptop.
She’s pretty but weird.” Another girl said.
I shook my head and ignored them.
They can gossip for all I care.
I had gotten ready for school feeling so enthusiastic.
I had woken up very early because I was restless and anxious.
I couldn’t even sleep well because I kept on tossing and turning on the bed.
I was just so damn anxious and eager to go to school.
