After leaving the Huggins residence, I left for the hospital.
When I got into the ward my mom mom was in, i met my dad half asleep on the cushion he was seated,
I accidentally slammed the door waking my dad, but thankfully my mom was alseep and seemed very deep in her sleep.
“Oh you’re here!” My dad said.
“Yeah!” I grinned.
“How was work?” he asked.
“How is mom?” I asked.
“She’s doing okay and when I say that I mean better than okay!” my dad said and I laughed happily.
“Okay dad you can go home I’ll take it from here!” I tell my Dad.
“No it’s okay!” He protested.
“Dad, you’re tired I walked in here to see you sleeping, go home, take a bath, and rest all you can, I’m here with mom, my job doesn’t start until midday, so it doesn’t matter if I pull an all nighter here in the hospital.” I sighed.
My dad smiled and stood up.
“Thanks dear, you’re the best!”
“I know right?” I teased and the both of us laughed.
Seconds later my dad left leaving my mom and I alone. And I breathed a sigh of relief, at least she’s doing okay!
I was alone and thinking to myself about nothing when a call came into my phone.
“HI.. Neil… Hello!” I breathed into the phone.
“Hi there Elsa! How are you?” He asked.
“I am fine!” I replied.
“Okay so, don’t be surprised, I’m in front of your house now, can you come out?”
“My house? Uh..
“Yeah, your house, what’s wrong?” he asked.
“I am not at home right now actually, I’m at the hospital!”
“The hospital!” his voice was suddenly loud. “What happened to you, are you okay?”
“Yeah, I am fine, it’s my mom, she… She got into an accident but don’t worry she’s fine!” I sighed.
“But still… What is the name of the hospital she got admitted?” Neil asked.
“Look you don’t have to come here Neil it’s okay, and besides visiting hours are closed, only close family members can come, even cousins are not allowed!” I made it clear to him and he sighed.
“Yeah but still just tell me the name of the hospital, I will show up tomorrow” He sighed.
“Okay fine, I’ll text you the address but you might not find me here when you come cause I might have left for work already!” I expound and heard his intense breathing.
“Okay then, I’ll be waiting for your text!” He said and I nodded with a “sure” before hanging up.
I texted the address immediately before I forgot and I started to think why I didn’t tell him the name of the address through the call, it would have been so much easier that way.
I stayed with my mom all through the night and when it got to 3.am I was woken up by my mom’s soft voice calling out my name.
I opened my eyes and my mom smiled.
And with a flushed smile she whispered. “I have to pee!”
I smiled back and wiped out my sleepy eyes with my hands before helping my mom to the bathroom.
My mom and I talked through the night but she later found out i was still so sleepy and she begged me to sleep a little, I declined but later fell asleep without knowing.
The next morning when I woke up, I met my dad in the hospital already and I knew it was my cue to go home and rest well.
It was morning and I could hear the back of mind thinking about Elsa.
Like what the hell.
I didn’t know why but all I wanted to do today was not go to school.
I heard a knock on the door and yelled “come in”.
The door opened and Dessera walked in.
“Oh sera, it’s you!” I said sitting on my bed.
“It’s Dessera!” she said.
“Like I don’t know that!” I rolled my eyes. “Instead of calling you Dessera, I had to make it short by calling you sera so it wouldn’t waste time. Where the fuck did you live in a farm?”
“Yes I actually grew farm with my grandparents! We used to have this big farm but then my grand pappy got… Scom.. Uhm… ScSca… scam.. Scammed yeah scammed and we lost every one… Ev.. Every thing” Dessera explained happily gesturing her hands.
She doesn’t get it.
“You know what, there’s no point explaining things to you, why are you here anyways!” I asked.
“It’s eight thirty and you’re late for school your mother said I should come check on you!” Dessera slowly took her time to compose that.
“Well I’m not going to school today!” I broke the news.
“Why? Are you sick?” Dessera asked.
I sighed. “It’s none of your business sera and if mom asks, yes I am sick!”
“But you look fine to me!” Dessera said.
Okay I’m going to cry now.
“Just go get me a cup of coffee that would be nice or no thank you I’ll go get it myself and if I happen to run into mom, I’ll tell her why I’m skipping school myself thank you for your time Dessera!” I said and walked out of my room.
I walked into the kitchen and saw my mom making coffee and I smiled.
“Good morning mom!” I grinned.
“Do not smile with me! It’s past the time you leave for school! What the hell are you still doing at home!” my mom half yelled.
“Well cause, I don’t want to go.!” I stated.
“Why?” she gave me an angry look.
“I just don’t want to be in school today okay! And please do not ask me why, cause I am confused and don’t know why I want to stay home either!” I yelled and my mom sighed heavily.
“Are you going through any breakup?” she looked at me suspiciously.
“No, I’m dating I haven’t even dated anyone!” I made it clear to her.
“Then what is wrong with you, why are you so confused? Are you depressed or something? I hope you’re not! Tell me Jason what is wrong with you?” my mom asked with care.
I sighed. “Honestly mom I don’t know, I just want today to speed up so Elsa can come here Tutor me and then leave and bam today will be over and that’s the end of today, I don’t know!”
My mom paused and looked at me.
“So you want to run past time or you just want Elsa here?”
“Huh?” I was confused by her words. “What are you implying?” I asked.
She crossed her hands and moved her hair back gently.
“Do you like Elsa?” my mom asked.
“What?” I laughed.
“What kind of absurd question is that mom?” I crossed my arms.
“Look at you acting all tough and manly in front of me like you have no clue of what I’m talking about just because you grew little muscle all up in there!” my mom said reffering to my bicep and punching them with her soft hands.
“You like Elsa don’t you, and don’t say it’s absurd! Cause it’s not its a normal question and why do you even say it’s absurd, isn’t she worth liking, Elsa is very pretty if I’m to judge!” my mom stated rushing her words.
“Well okay Elsa is pretty and worth to like but your question to me doesn’t make any sense!” I huffed.
“What?” she scoffed “You’re the one not making any sense it’s just a simple question Jason. Yes or no?”.
“No okay! I don’t like Elsa!” I yelled angrily hating myself for lying about liking her.
My mom paused and adjusted her robe on her body. She suddenly received a text from her phone and I don’t know who that was but she was angry when she replied the person, and then dropped her phone on the counter.
“You’re lying!” she narrowed her eyes at me.
“Okay mom why don’t you just kill me!” I huffed.
“I would but I can’t cause I love you, I gave birth to you and I want the best for you, so now just tell me, remember Jason, you can tell me anything okay? And I promise I won’t judge!” She said sounding like really promising and I looked up at her stern and serious face.
I can trust her.
“You won’t judge!”
“I won’t!” she assured me.
I sighed “Okay… I think I like Elsa!”
“You think or you do?”
“I do!” I sighed.
“See that’s nothing to be ashamed of!” my mom smiled.
“Really?” I asked.
“Of course, people fall in love all the time and I haven’t seen you fall for anyone before, I had no clue it would be Elsa!” my mom said focusing back on her coffee.
“So now you know, what do you want me to do?” I shrugged.
“Whatever you do, do not confess your feelings to Elsa!” my mom warned.
“What? Why?” I asked.
I wasn’t planning to do so anyways.
“she has a boyfriend!”
“You mean that guy who came looking for her Neil?” I asked and my mom nodded talomh a sip out of her coffee.
“Well Neil isn’t her boyfriend they’re just friends!” I explained.
“That’s what we all think, but they might start dating you may not know. And just look at the age difference Jason and she is your teacher!” my mom said making me feel worse about myself.
“And what the fuck is wrong with that?” I was getting pissed. “Elsa is just twenty one”
“And you just turned eighteen! Do you ever see the two of you together?” my mom asked.
Always good with asking stupid questions.
And now she’s making me feel like shit. Why did I ever tell her about this
“Mom remember you said you won’t judge!” I stated.
“Sorry but I have to! Look I Love you Jason, cause you came out of me and I really like Elsa cause, she’s very sweet and because she gives you different tastes of your own medicine, but I don’t see any good with you falling for her.” my mom explained.
“You know what mom, let’s not talk about this anymore, I regret talking to you about this!” I said and stormed off to my room angrily.
Ugh she just have to ruin everything, now my hopes of Elsa has dried down and I don’t think it will ever be coming back up.
So what if she’s twenty and I’m eighteen age doesn’t fucking matter.
I like her and don’t care if she’s older.
Ugh my mom is such a… Ugh I don’t even know what to call her.
So what if she and Neil are friends.
Feeling pissed, I kicked my study desk angrily and the light wooden table crashed to the floor and landed in peices. Yeah that’s how mad I am.
I started getting ready for what and I put on my casual Jean and t-shirt before packing my hair up.
I had bread and jam for lunch, didn’t have the time to cook, I ate lunch and carried my bag with books in it and was ready to leave when I got a call from Mrs Huggins.
Huh why is she calling?
“Mrs Huggins? Good day, what a surprise you called I am on my way to your h–
“Jason isn’t feeling well today Elsa! And he’s not home right now, but I want you to come over, I have something to talk to you about!” Mrs Huggins stated and I could hear the seriousness in her voice.
“Is something wrong Mrs Huggins?” I aksed to be sure.
And she suddenly laughed. “oh everything is fine dear, but it’s about Jason, please just come over” Mrs Huggins added and I agreed before hanging up.
I left the house and hoped it is not anything bad.

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.
