Still wondering what Mrs Huggins have to say to me, I left the house and in no time I was at the bus stop.
The drive to my destination was smooth and I was glad.
I got to the Huggins residence in no time and i breathed in heavily as I rang the doorbell.
The door opened immediately and Mrs Huggins stood there grinning like she’s just meeting me for the first time.
“Well come on in!” she smiled and I nodded before walking inside.
“So you said Jason isn’t home?” I asked.
“Well he seemed a bit off, mostly pissed about something so I guess he went for a run or something. Come on let’s talk before he gets back and don’t worry you’ll still tutor him today I just want to talk about something real quick!” Mrs Huggins said and laughed nervously pulling me towards the couch.
I sat beside her and she bit her bottom lip and breathed a sigh of relief.
“So… Jason didn’t go to school today!” she started.
Why is she telling me?
“And?” I said in a tone that gave her the signal to continue.
“Okay, so I asked him why, and he said he’s confused about something, okay this is seriously wrong of me to butt into his business or any of uou business, but as a mom, who loves his son, I have to do this!” Mrs Huggins sighed.
Okay I still don’t understand where she’s going.
“So after this conversation can you promise me you won’t treat Jason differently or talk to him about anything?” Mrs Huggins asked.
“Uhh… Okay! I won’t!” I promised.
“Okay, wow! This is actually making me feel a bit cranky, and Jason won’t ever probably talk to me if he finds out about this either!” Mrs Huggins laughed.
Now she’s making me really curious.
“Mrs Huggins can you get straight to the point… please!” I said and she gave me a look before sighing and grabbing her phone beside her.
“Listen carefully, I recorded this, this morning. Jason had no idea about it and try not to get… You know what, I’ll just play it for you.!” Mrs Huggins said and tapped the play button that was showing bodly on her phone.
I relaxed my tense shoulder when I heard Mrs Huggins voice,but was shocked by what she said.
*Do you like Elsa?*
I looked at Mrs Huggins with my eyes widely open but she just stared at me like she said nothing, well she did, but she did record she and Jason having this conversation.
*What?* Jason’s voice followed
*What kind of absurd question is that mom?*.
“Yeah that is seriously an absurd question Mrs Huggins!” I chimed,
Mrs Huggins sighed and paused the playing audio, she moved the duration a bit forward and told me to listen.
And I listen carefully immediately Mrs Huggins and Jason’s voice came alive again.
*You won’t judge!* Jason’s voice said.
*I won’t!* Mrs Huggins told him in an assuring way.
I heard Jason’s sigh and silently gasped at his next words that followed *Okay… I think I like Elsa!*
*You think or you do?* Mrs Huggins voice followed.
*I do!* Jason’s sigh could be heard sighed.
Jason likes me??
I was completely speechless so I just had to listen to the audio.
*See that’s nothing to be ashamed of!* Mrs Huggins voice popped up.
*Really?* Jason’s voice followed
*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!* Mrs Huggins said.
Jason’s ashamed of liking me?
*So now you know, what do you want me to do?* I could hear the sadness in Jason’s voice.
*Whatever you do, do not confess your feelings to Elsa!* that was what I heard before Mrs Huggins turned off her phone.
I was completely speechless I didn’t even know how to react.
Like yeah I was flustered that Jason liked me, but I didn’t know what else I was feeling or what else I could think and I came back to reality when Mrs Huggins let out a loud depressing sigh.
“So now you know my Jason has feelings for you and I think he’s been planning to keep it to himself but somehow he doesn’t want to, well I found out and I know you’ll go nuts if he ever tells you this, I mean a student falling his teacher, it’s a bit preposterous but I just don’t want him to feel dejected if he ever tells you and then you let him down, I just want to tell you this so you won’t be too moved when he confesses to you, I just want you to know so you’ll know how to reply him if that day ever comes. I’m so sorry for butting in like this but he’s my son!” Mrs Huggins expounded but I still remained quiet.
We heard the front door being opened by someone and Mrs Huggins grabbed my hands immediately.
“Act like we never had this conversation, please! That must be Jason!” she said and I nodded still feeling a bit awkward.
Jason came into view and his mom gave me a sharp look before turning to him.
“And where have you been young man!?” Mrs Huggins asked…
Jason glanced at his mom, then at me, he was kind of suspicious I could tell but didn’t put it into thoughts actually. Well maybe because of the expression I gave, I guess my acting is finally picking up.
“I’ve been nowhere!” Jason sighed.
“Nowhere?” i scoffed. “How come I’m here waiting if you’ve been nowhere!”.
“Well I’m here now, so can we start with the tutoring!” Jason sighed and starts to walk to his room.
“Sure” I said, glanced at his mother before trailing behind him.
I closed the door to Jason’s room and immediately I arranged my books on his desk, I got a call from Neil.
“Neil! Hi, hello!” I said into the phone and watched as Jason walked around before finally sitting on his seat in front of his desk and beside the chair I’m always sitting.
And at the mention of Neil Jason couldn’t help but throw glances at me.
I feel awkward.
“Will you be able to meet me after work today?” Neil asked.
“Uh let’s see… I can’t, you my mom is still at the hos–
“I went to the hospital to see your mom and I’m happy that she’s getting better, she said to let you know, not to pressure yourself and worry about her, that you should have fun!” Neil said and I laughed.
“Are you trying to make me come with you?” I asked.
“Well… Yeah, but your mom did say that!” Neil said.
“And don’t worry I’ll spent less time with you and make sure you get to see your mom in time, please it’s just one stupid dinner!” Neil sighed.
“Stupid?” I repeated.
“No, I wanted to sound cool, scratch that, I’m sorry!” Neil laughed making me laugh too.
“It’s okay” I assured him.
“I can come pick you up right?” he asked.
“Yeah sure!” I said and hung up.
I cut the call and turned to Jason to see him staring at the books on the desk.
“Okay we can start now!” I said to him sitting down.
“Are you guys going to keep doing this to yourselves, just date already!” Jason stated.
Oh really? I thought he liked me. Is he supposed to be saying stuff like this?
“Oh well soon enough” I added and Jason shrugged.
I bet in a million fold he’s jealous.
Or I guess not. Cause he doesn’t look like he is.
Jason and I started on a new topic and I explained once and was surprised by the way he grabbed it once and solved it on his own. I didn’t yell much I didn’t even tell at all, neither did he tease me or badmouth me.
He was super nice through the first topic we went to and I was impressed.
Or wait, is he being super nice because he likes me?
Okay now this is getting funny!.
“looks like this topic is on your good side, or are you in a good mood today, you seem to be getting along with math.!” I smiled.
“Good side my butt! I skipped school today!” Jason stated.
“Why?” I turned to him.
“Because I’m not in a good mood!” he sighed.
“So you skipped school because you’re not in a good mood?” I shook my head not believing my ears.
“And what brought your bad mood?” I asked.
“Is this a math lesson or a therapy session?” Jason rolled his eyes.
“So you can’t share with me?” I asked in a calm way.
“I can’t, now can we move on?” I asked.
“Of course!” I sighed,
He’s not going to admit it, fine.
We moved to another topic and we had to draw diagrams and all and so the topic took forever.
Finally it was my time to finally go home, and as I cleared the table by shoving my books and textbooks inside my bag, Jason stood up and said. “do you want me to escort you out the door?”.
I looked up at him. “And why do you want to escort me?”.
I was teasing him and I couldn’t believe myself.
“I’m trying to be nice, now don’t make this awkward!” Jason sighed.
“I know!” I laughed. “I appreciate your nice effort, but…
I suddenly got a text from Neil saying he’s here.
“But Neil is here!” I added.
“Okay I get it!” Jason said and sat on his bed.
“Good, till tomorrow then!” I smiled and left his room.
I didn’t run into Mrs Huggins on my way down and I was glad. I made it outside and saw Neil beside his car.
“HI.” he smiled.
“Hi” I replied.
He opened the car door for me and I got in.
Neil and I were both quiet through the whole drive, we only talked once until we got to our destination.
Neil had booked our names under the same restaurant as last time, but this time in a different room.
“You booked our names down?” I asked as we patiently waited for the waiter to come with our drinks.
“Yeah what’s wrong?” Neil asked.
“What if I had turned you down?”
Neil laughed. “Then my money would have been gone, all or nothing I don’t care! What matter is that you’re here now!”
“Okay, you and your sweet talks” I smiled and he smiled too.
“So how is everything with Jason going? Are you coping well, still with your mom at the hospital!”
“Well I am, and Jason is being really nice and less stressful,” I said and paused.
The thought of him liking me made me laugh.
“What’s wrong?” Neil asked. Cause he never said anything funny so he’d be wondering why I was laughing.
I looked up at Neil. “So Neil you were right!” I said.
“Right? Right about what?” Neil asked.
“About Jason!” I sighed. “So I heard from his mom today that he has feelings for me!”.
“I told you!” Neil rolled his eyes.
“Well it’s not a bad thing he likes me! But I was really speechless when I found out though, cause he doesn’t seem like the type to like someone, and come to think of me! It’s funny as it’s creepy!” I expound.
“So you like him back?” Neil asked.
“I don’t!” I shook my head. He has started to travel his mind again.
“Okay so when I told you, you didn’t believe, so how do you feel now when you know a boy younger than you has feelings for you!” Neil asked.
“Well I feel… Glad! I guess cause who wouldn’t want to be loved, and besides I’ve always been the one having feelings for a particular person, but now it’s the opposite and he is younger than me, that is why it’s funny!” I shrugged.
“But you know I have feelings for you too! So mine isn’t funny?” Neil asked and I looked at him.
Okay this is getting awkward.

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.
