“mom did Peter tell you this” I asked feeling a little bit angry about this, he’s so juvenile.
“I told you it doesn’t matter how I know!! Answer me is it true?” my mom yelled and believe me when I say this is the first time I’ve seen her yell.
“yes it’s true, I do have a boyfriend” I tell her and she gasped heavily and I had to refrain myself from rolling my eyes.
“after..after.. everything your dad and I told you” my mom said dramatically moving her white blonde hair back.
“you guys say it like its a bad thing, James is really a nice gu–
“James? That’s his stupid name?” my mom said and I glared at her
“it’s not a stupid name, and he’s a really nice guy just because you don’t know him or you haven’t seen him doesn’t mean you have to judge him the way you like” I yelled feeling my cheek heat up.
“you’ve got a boyfriend now and he’s giving you the audacity to yell at me right!! Samantha I didn’t give birth to you to waste your body on useless boys” my mom yelled and I sighed and dropped my backpack on the Floor.
“I’m not wasting my body mom what the hell are you talking about you’re saying gibberish” I yelled and my mom gave me a sounding slap that my blood rose to my head that’s the first time she’d ever laid hands on me, I looked up at her and saw she felt guilty for what she did.
“I..I’m.. I’m.. S..
“you know what mom,” I sniffed tears dropping down my eyes like water fall and I could feel my nose red already.
“I think you and dad brought me up the wrong way, having a boyfriend doesn’t mean I’m wasting my body on him, having friends doesn’t mean I’m wasting my earthly time and watching movies doesn’t mean my thoughts are getting ruined, all those things you said to me were all lies. Lies!” I yelled and my mom flinched. And I cried even more.
“I’ve gotten a boyfriend behind your back who’s been really sweet to me, I’ve been watching movies behind your back and I’ve learned a lot of thing’s which I thought I knew and the most sweetest part of all was making friends, I finally made friends mom..” I cried.. “For the past sixteen years I haven’t had any friends if only Naomi hadn’t said hi to me at first I wouldn’t have had a friend, being perfect isn’t everything it’s not going to take me anywhere, and guess what nobody’s perfect, Naomi’s been singing that to me everytime but I’ve been too busy being a bitch around her because of you! Because of dad! I thought I could be perfect, I thought I was perfect but I was being deceived by me And your ugly thoughts” ..
My mom stood still as she watched me let all my anger out and god it felt so good.
“you made me live in a world where it made me an arrogant bitch, and Now I can’t get it out of my blood because without that blood there’s no Samantha, Mom you destroyed me, I loved myself at first but everyday something new, something tells me I’m always wrong when I feel like I’m right and now my friends won’t even talk to me and it’s not my fault it’s all yours cause you made me this way and it’s hurts now I know how my friends feel when my they’re are around me, and I know what you were trying to do all along, you were trying to get Peter and I together, so what’s the difference with me dating James!!” I yelled picked up my bag and started to walk upstairs while she just stared at me. Just as I got to the middle stairs I turned to my mom and said the word that will get her flabbergasted and appalled.
“I hate you mom” I said before storming into my room and slamming the door pretty hard for her to hear.
I threw my backpack on my bed and walked into my bathroom, I turned on the shower and let my uniform get wet and clingy to my body, I later took off my uniform and wasted a lot of time in my bathtub before coming out and changing into casuals clothes and falling asleep. What I just told my mother came out from every part of me, being perfect isn’t as easy as she thinks, it’s hard for me too and I don’t want to be ‘that’ perfect girl and I am not perfect.
**
I woke up by the sound of knock on my door and rubbed my eyes and got up from my bed. I turned on my phone to look at the time cause it’s nighttime already , it was (9:23pm) and I heard the knock again.
“Beatrice?!” I yelled.
“it’s not Beatrice it’s me” I heard my mom’s voice from outside and I sat down on my bed again. I’m not opening the door for her.
“what do you want?” I yelled so she could hear me from outside.
“please just open the door” my mom begged.. “no” I stated angrily.
“honey you’ve been in there for hours and you’ve missed dinner” my mom said sadly.
“it’s not the first time” I yelled.
“honey please!.. Look I’m sorry” my mom said and knocked lightly on the door and I sighed and walked to the door.. I turned the door knob and opened the door and my mom tried to smile seeing me.
“good night mom” I said and slammed the door. I went back to my bed and pulled my blanket over my body.. That night I couldn’t sleep a lot was bothering me but I didn’t know what but I know Tracey was one of them and I couldn’t sleep cause Ive already slept for hours, I manged to fall asleep around four in the morning and woke up by seven, I didn’t go for my morning jog cause I didn’t feel like it and I just got ready for school like that.
I was glad I didn’t run into my mom in the living room and after eating breakfast, Evans drove me to school.
I made a tiring journey to class and I didn’t see anyone in class. I sighed remembering today’s sport day and I dropped my bag and made my way to the gym class, I silently passed everyone in the gym room not letting anyone See Me and I walked into the girls changing room, three unfamiliar girls were inside the dressing room and two were standing and the third one was sitting on a bench crying while the ones standing were consoling her.
“Jennie it’s okay. You don’t have to cry over spilled milk” one of them said to me the girl sitting down and she cried even more. I turned to my locker and start to remove my uniform, I tried to mind my own business but I couldn’t cause the girls words were ear watering.
“Isaac was a good guy but you have to let him go, it’s over take it that way” one of the girls said to the Jennie and she didn’t reply them she still cried seriously.
“Jen.. He said you’re not good enough for him, he said you’re too dumb and naïve, he said you’re slow and boring, just let go of him and never talk to him again.. If you see him on the street ignore him okay?” the other girl said to Jennie and I shoved my school uniform inside my locker and slammed the locker door, scaring the three girls, I adjusted my jersey and turned.
“Jennie” I called and the three girls turned to me.
“yeah?” Jennie sniffed and looked up at me, her nose red and puffy, her cheeks red and her eyes swollen.
“Isaac is a human like you, even though he called you those absurd things if you see him anywhere don’t ignore, be the one to say hi with a smile, talk to him show him you’re happy without him and if he says anything that’s not funny laugh, show him you’re not boring, slow, dumb and naïve..
“who are yo.. Jennie’s friend tried to interrupt me but I cut her off still telling Jennie what to do.
“show him you can be strong, less boring, sophisticated and free spirited, let him know you’re not his level” I said with seriousness and Jennie hiccuped tears rushing down her eyes. I knelt down in front of her and cleaned her tears,
“he broke your heart, now it’s time for you to shatter his heart and rip his soul” I said and one of the girls gasped.
“excuse me” I said stood up and walked away, I didn’t know why I did that but I just felt like I had to and while walking out of the girls changing room I noticed my eyes wet and I cleaned them, maybe I felt for Jennie, but Isaac was a really stupid boyfriend, I don’t know what I would have turn to if James was the one who said all those things to me i don’t even want that day to exits.
James was standing at the front line with Kaden and Lucas, and beside them was Tracey, molly and Victoria. I sighed and stood alone watching them.

“okay everyone gather around!!” coach Rick announced and everyone started to move forward until we were all standing in front of her.
I watched as James glance at the door a few thousands times and then talked to Tracey about something.. Coach Rick said we were going to play volley ball boys against girls and while picking the first team to play in the first round she spotted me from the crowd.
“you girl, come out” she said and I walked out from the crowd and seeing me James smiled.
“you’ll be the first team leader and–
“can I take a sick leave please?” I tell her and she paused.
“what’s wrong with you, you look good” she said.
“but I don’t feel good” I said and she clicked Her tongue and gesture her head towards the door for me to leave.
*
“okay tell me what’s wrong with you?” the school nurse miss Rita asked as I walked into the school’s infirmary and laid on the bed.. “nothing just feeling a little tired” I said and she nods happily. Seems like she’s not in the mood to give anyone any treatment..
I decided to close my eyes for a little bit but I was interrupted by a cold hand that touched my wrist. I opened my eyes and found James beside me.
“what are you doing here?” I asked.
“I’m supposed to be me one asking that question.. Are you okay?” he asked as I gently sit up.
“yeah I just didn’t want to participate in any sports activity” I replied. “oh” he said.
“what are you doing here aren’t you supposed to be in the gym” I asked moving my hair back.
“I saw you coming here so I followed you, I was worried” he said and I smiled a little. “thanks” he was worried. That’s sweet.
“but no worries, you can rest, and I’ll go back to the gym” he said and I nod and laid back on the bed.
James had already taken two steps forward when he stopped and walked back to me kissing my forehead. “just know that I really really like you” he laughed and I rolled my eyes. “what’s up with that? That was cheesy” I said and he laughed before walking away.
I tried to fall asleep but I couldn’t, I wasn’t sleepy but I didn’t feel like getting up from the bed and nurse Rita kept texting and laughing at her phone screen which made me watch her every minute and when she glance at me I just looked away.
Hours passed and I decided to go back to the class and I told nurse Rita and she just nods not paying attention to me but her phone.. I walked out of the infirmary and walked through the classes hallway, I made my way to the gym class which was empty and into the girls changing room, with me being alone I took my time and changed into my school uniform ,
I made my to the class, and immediately I was about to enter the class I heard the bell for lunch break, and the teacher in our class walked out, while I walked in and went to my seat.
“hey Sam! Are you okay?” Victoria suddenly jumped in Front of me, I flinched a little but I controlled myself.
“yeah, I’m fine” I replied looking at my desk.
“oh thank God, I thought something happened to you when you told coach Rick you had to go to the infirmary, but it’s seems like you’re fine” Victoria said and I shrugged.
“so are you going for lunch?” she asked.
“yeah why?”
“great! Let’s go together” she squeaked.
“it’s okay, I’m going with James you can go with Tracey and Molly, I won’t bother you guys” I explained, “what makes you think, you’re a bother to us?” Tori asked calmly sitting on a chair beside mine.
“I don’t know, seems like Tracey has something against me” I scoffed, rolling my eyes after that.
“oh Tracey’s just being that way, she said she really wanted you to seat with us but she said you’re being a total kvetch..” Victoria said and I huffed. “she said if you just listen to her and be–
Victoria was interrupted by Tracey and James, as Tracey pushed James slowly in front of us.
“okay tell her” Tracey ordered and James rubbed his neck.
“do you really have to do this” James whined.
“yeah I do” Tracey stated and James stood in front of me firmly and he let out a nervous grin.
“Sam..” he called and my brows raised up at him.
“I have to tell you something” He said..

Sometimes In life, our wishes gets the best of us, challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful, death is not the most tragic loss in life, the most tragic loss is what dies inside while you’re still alive, and lastly expectations are dangerous.. I know all this cause I actually feel them.
#
After that evening with Naomi, she left leaving me to feel bad for myself and I ended up falling asleep without eating Dinner.
“Samantha!!” I heard my name.
“Sammie..” I heard it again and my eyes flutter open.
“mom!. What are you doing here?” I asked sitting on my bed.
“Beatrice told me you slept without eating dinner and I brought you some even though to late” my mom said quietly and I glance at my phone to check the time but it wasn’t on, so I forgot about it, my mom smiled gently as me and handed the tray on her hand over to me.
“C’mon eat, you’ve been getting really skinny” she said with a worried tone and I rolled my eyes. Since I didn’t want her to worry much, I started to eat, I didn’t have an appetite but I had to force myself.
“Samantha, I’m sorry” my mom said.
“you should be” I muttered.
“I’m sorry, for pushing you and controlling you to be who you’re not supposed to be and I rea–
“mom..” I cut her off “it’s okay don’t remind me”
“if there’s one thing I know is this”.. “forgive others not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace, and I need peace.. forgiveness is not something we do for other people, we do it for ourselves to get well and move on” I tell my mom and she sniffed and pulled me in a warm hug, “oh honey, I’m so sorry” she said.
“it’s okay” I said.
After eating my mom took back the tray and I laid on my bed again, I looked at the time and it was ten thirty (10:30pm) I sighed and before I knew it I fell asleep again.
The next morning I woke up feeling a little energetic unlike yesterday and after my morning run, I had a splendid shower, put on my uniform, ate breakfast before having Evans drive me to school.
I got to school and made my journey to class, I got to class and sat on my seat, everyone was busy talking to each other since there was no teacher In the class, and I didn’t want to talk to anyone but I didn’t know when I got on my seat and walked up to Tracey who was talking to a girl beside her, seeing me she said something to the girl and she smiled and left.
“hey,” I smiled.. .”hi” she said in a whisper and looked away.
“I…i. I’m not here to say anything bad, I’m just here to apologize” I tell her.
“apolo–
“before you say anything” I cut her off.. “I just want you to know that I am sorry for everything I’ve said or done to you and I really wish..we could talk again cause I really miss you” I rushed the last part and she giggled.
“ditto,..” she said and stood up “I really feel the same way, it’s not my intention to be this way to you but I kind of have to cau-
My sudden hug stopped her from talking and I could feel her smiles from my shoulder “it’s okay, as long as you added ditto, you don’t have to say anything else” I tell her and we both released from the hug … “I didn’t know you’re this nice” Tracey laughed.
“don’t joke with it, it only comes once in a blue moon” I laughed too. The English teacher walked in and everyone groaned while I walked back to my seat. After learning a lot that morning it was time for lunch break and honestly I wish I could keep learning cause this few days, I’ve been loosing my appetite. “hey” someone growled behind me making me flinch and turn immediately.
“James!!” I yelled and held my chest. “you scared me!” I added.
“sorry” he laughed
“so…? You going out for lunch break?” he asked.
“why not, I mean aren’t we supposed to eat to live?” I said sarcastically and he laughed.
“well then let’s go eat and live together” he said and placed his hand in front of me and I gently placed mine on top of his with a smile and we both walked out.
We both ordered our food and went to a table at the center of the cafeteria, but I just couldn’t eat, it was so noisy that my head start to spin it was like the noise was about me, it was like everyone’s talking about me.
“are you okay?” James asked. But I shook my head negatively.
“I can’t seem to find myself hungry in here” .
“okay, well they’re other places you can quietly eat where no one will bother you” James said.
“like?..
“the classroom, the gym, the auditorium and the school garden” James replied .
“the school has a garden?” I asked.
“yeah at the back of the second building” he replied.
“no wonder I always see a wide empty area at the schools map not knowing what it was” .
“students aren’t there and Esther’s the watch lady, don’t worry if she finds us there I’ll threaten her with her big sleepover and she won’t report us” James said and I smiled and gave him a flirty eye roll.
We both left for the school garden and a small wow, escaped my lips and I smiled, it was magical, like that of fairytale stories, it was greenish, breezy and has this strong smell of dew and leaves and it made my non hungry mouth, hungry. There was a long bench at the middle of the low trimmed grasses and I walked up to it and sat down. James walked up to me and sat beside me and we both quietly start to eat, James finished his food in a jiffy and start to drink his box of milk, he bought like three boxes of milk.. “is it skimmed milk?” I asked.
“nope, the one that gives you a lot of fat” he said and I nod and chew hard on my burger.
“but you’ve been taking it and you’re not getting any fat, shouldn’t you visit the doctor” I said playfully and he playfully glared at me.
“that’s not something I should worry about, I’m not destined to get fat I just take them cause it helps me think, milks are like drugs to me, just as you are to me now” he said sulking a whole lot of milk in his mouth. and I almost cried at his romantic statement, I couldn’t help but get flushed at that so I pretended like I didn’t hear a thing.
“have you tried taking chocolate milk, cake or chocolate candy bars. I heard it’s good for adding to your–
“I’m not trying to get fat Sam, I love the way I am” James cut me off.
“I’m sorry have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately?” I asked and rolled my eyes
“yep, I still look as charming as always” he beamed. But it’s true.
“show off to any other girl, for a boy, you’re too skinny I mean take a look at Kaden for example he’s not skinny like you he’s fleshy and full of boyish meat unlike you” I said and James scoffed, “if you want to date him just say it don’t use skinny as an excuse” .
I rolled my eyes at James for saying that and continued, “I mean under his shirt I’m sure they’re a lot of breathtaking packs that will make girls for to their knees” I said with seriousness to get James angry but he didn’t seem affected by it.
“I’ve got packs too six of them” he said boastfully opening his second box of milk.
“six packs??, are you sure they’re packs or your ribs?” I asked and he sighed, “gosh that hurts” I laughed.
We both remained quiet and with a small smile still on my lips and as I shoved my straw inside my juice box and start to sulk the pineapple juice inside it, James breathed out loudly before saying.
“you know I didn’t like you at first, cause you’re always pestering and disturbing that it made me disliked an you, and with all Kaden was saying about you, but then I suddenly saw through you and saw this sweet lovely Sam who just wants a life like everyone else but was very different from everyone else and the way you confessed your feelings was shocking to me at first but If I think about it sometimes I just laugh cause it wasn’t just funny it was sweet, I wasn’t supposed to like you Sam, but I did cause you’re a real charmer, you got me and I’ve never liked someone my whole life” James smile and I slowly turned to him.
What does he mean by he wasn’t supposed to fall for me.
“James you really are f–
“Samantha..” he cut me off “I really…. really like you even though it’s bizarre but I do, I like it that I do but I also hate it but I can’t help it, our deities once fell in love and it doesn’t matter who they fell in love with cause the feeling’s there but In this century it matters,” ..
I don’t know why James is saying all this and somehow it made me scared, when the person you’re dating start to say things like this, it only means one thing, they’re diagnosed with a horrible disease and they want to break up. So I asked.
“James, are you alright?”
“what are you talking about I’m perfectly fine” he smiled,
“really?” I said and my voice shook. He nods and I sighed,
“you saying all this is making me scared and it somehow felt like you’re about to break up with me” I said, but he just stared at the grasses not saying anything..
“James..” I called for his attention and he turned to me. “can we… Kiss?” he asked slowly as he turned to me.
“why are you suddenly acting this way?” I asked, normally if he wanted to kiss me he does it on his own free will but now he’s asking for my permission.
“because nothing lasts forever we better live in the moment” he added leaning close to me but I stood up.
“if you’re going to continue like this I’m leaving” and was about to go but he pulled me back.
“I’m sorry.” he said and stood up too.
“so you’re coming over to my house this Saturday right?” he asked with a smile. “Yeah, wait why again?” I asked.
“for our project in history” he said and I nod, “yeah right” I nod and grabbed my tray.
“you’re done eating, I’m done too so let’s just go back to class” I said and he nods and we both walked back to class,
I didn’t really pay attention in class because of James words earlier, why was he saying all those things, he acted really weird and that was scary.
.
** Fast forward **
.
School was over and we all went to drama class, everyone acted their scenes perfectly even Victoria and the drama teacher gave her a small nod when she was done acting.
When it was the time for James and I to do the kissing scene, I noticed James strange behaviour like when am a princess I promised to kiss him so he could be prince again and not a frog and when I kissed him lightly on his lips he wanted more.. But I withdrew quickly we earned a small applaud and the drama teacher told me the kissing didn’t have to be real but he didn’t mind it being real.
I said goodbye to James before getting into my limo.
I got home and took a shower and I couldn’t just stop thinking about my James I was seriously worried that I didn’t pay attention during dinner and I received a few worried questions from my mom.
That night I decided to watch TV and turning it on it gave a great highlight to our living room cause I’ve never turned the TV on, it was my first time, I turned on my phone hot-spot and the TV’s Wi-Fi and streamed the internet for movies, I spotted like three interesting ones and clicked on the first one. and watching movie from TV is better than watching it from a laptop, my mom met me watching TV but she just passed me by and it helped me took my mind off James a little.
But the memory of James came back when I was about to sleep… But thankfully I manged to fall asleep.
**
The next morning I was surprised I wasn’t woken up by my alarm but Beatrice told me it was Saturday and I insanely laughed at myself for not knowing that. I ate breakfast and told my parents I’m going over to a friend’s house for our history project.. “is it James?” my mom questioned when I told her
“yes” I replied
“okay be home early” she said.
“I’m also going to a sleepover” I tell her
“what? You and Naomi can have one here” she suggested.
“mom please!” I said and she sighed and gave in, “make sure you invite Naomi too” she said and I rolled my eyes “sure” I said before walking away.
Evans drove me to Jame’s residence and seeing me he smiled and open the door wider for me to walk in, I met six guys in his living room and you’ll know they’re all related to James cause they have the same face features but James’s the prettiest.
“hi” I wave at them.
“is this the Cinderella?” one of the guys asked and another one nod.
“nice to meet you Samantha” the guy who nodded winked at me and I smiled. “nice to meet you t–
“ignore them sam” James said as he dragged me upstairs.
James slammed the door to his room and I turned to him immediately.
“they’re your–
“brothers.. Yeah” he interrupted me and I smiled.
“how do they know my name” I asked sitting on his bed.
“the last time you came here three of my brothers met you and they wondered who you were cause you suddenly walked passed them without saying hi and then they started to call you Cinderella”. James explained and I giggled.
“okay well I’ve gotten everything ready, we have to get somethings done and get ready for Esther’s sleepover” James said and I nod and took off my jacket.
We both got really busy with our project, I got to wear an apron and rubber gloves cause I was dealing with paint and glue, James brother didn’t allow us to concentrate cause they kept barging into his room and each of them either handing me hot chocolate or orange juice and I couldn’t say no cause they held such beautiful smile when giving it to me.. James wasn’t just handsome he was creative, I sat on his bed and watch him paint Jupiter very carefully. He noticed me watching him and he shyly smiled.
“don’t fall me too much” he said.
“why? Aren’t you worth falling for?” I asked and his smile faded.
“no” he muttered.
“what.. You silly boy, like you don’t know you’re the most handsome b–
“can I tell you something?” he asked.
“sure go on” I gesture my head giving him a go.
“no not now, when I’m done painting” he said and I nod “I’ll be waiting”.
James was done painting and we both washed our hands and set the five planets we’ve created beside his window for the afternoon sun and breeze to dry them and we’ll do the other ones later.
James seemed to be enjoying the hot chocolate his brothers brought for me and I giggled.
“and I thought you only love milk, looks like I was wrong”.
“hot chocolate and hot afternoon go perfectly well you can feel your blood ignite” he said and I rolled my eyes.
“so.. About the ‘thing’ you said you were going to tell me” I reminded him and he sighed and dropped the mug of chocolate..
“gosh I’m nervous” he muttered and stood up. “Samantha keeping this from you is just going to make me commit suicide one day so you have to know” he sighed.
“know what?” I asked.
“that.. That I’m not a guy,” James breathed out.
“Huh?” I moved my head forward.
“I’m a girl” he added.
“I’m sorry but can you speak actual words” I stated angrily.. “I’m not a guy Sam, I’m a girl, you’ve been dating a girl” he said and I laughed bitterly.
“if this is a new method of breaking up with girls then it sucks” I huffed.
“I’m not trying to break up with you, well I am but I don’t want you to get hurt but don’t you see it?” he asked and moved his hair back and I almost cried of how beautiful he looked. And for the first time I saw a girl in him.
“did Tracey poison your mind to break up with me did she give you this idea??!!!” I yelled and he groaned and walked to his door slammed it close and locked it. “fine, then I’ll prove it to you” he said and I looked at him from head to toe. Why??!!
“I’ve always been putting on chest binders.. He said as he unbutton his shirt and I just stood and watched him not wanting to believe my eyes and ears.. my body shook strangely, when my teary eyes laid on his.. Or her chest that was pressed with a grey colored chest binder.
“Ja… Ja.. Ja.. I couldn’t speak and I suddenly fell to the floor.. How could it be
“I’m sorry Samantha” he said kneeling in front of me,.. “no.. No this is a dream right?” I cried as my eyes met his.. “I’m sorry” he gasp.
“but why.. Why..” I cried.
Why did he have to pretend to be a boy and why did I fall for him and I’ve been dating girl, how could this be.. I cried even more when he hugged me but I pushed him away.
“you made a fool out of me!! Why didn’t tell me!” I yelled
“I’m sorry I wanted to but I started to like you” he said not looking at me.
“you started to like me? If you really liked me you would have told me sooner!” I sobbed and stood up, ..
“people like you should rot in hell” I said and walked passed him… “Samantha I..
“I wish I never spoke to you” I cut him off.
“and James.. James.. Is that even your real name?” I sob as I stare at the door.
“it’s.. Janice” he muttered lowly and his or her.. I don’t even know what gender to feel in.. This is annoying, it’s killing me!!
“well Janice, I hope to never see you again” I said and walked out.

“Sam..” James called
“I have to tell you something” he added .. “okay.. Go on” I said and glanced at Tracey who was looking at James attentively.
“actually Sam I… I’ve been wanting to tell you this” james said lowly and I smiled “take your time”.
“I want you to go on a date with me” James rushed his words and I giggled.
“James..?” Tracey glared at him.
“what’s your problem Tracey” James snarled.
“my problem is you dating her, tell her or I show her” Tracey ordered and I stare at the both of them wondering what’s going on.
“look I’m gonna tell her but not today and not now okay?!!” he said to Tracey and then tired to me.
“Sam.. I’ll be back”
James said and dragged Tracey out of the class.. “what do you think they’re going to talk about?” I asked Victoria as I watched them walk out of the class
“w..w.who k..knows??” Victoria stutter and I turned to her Victoria never stutters.
“I’m sorry do you know something?” I ask her.
“me?” she grinned.
“yeah, you’re the only one sitting with me and the only person I’m talking to so who could I be talking to if not you” I narrowed my eyes at her and she laughed nervously.
“oh Sarah you’re so funny” victoria laughed and my jaw dropped slightly. “I didn’t say anything funny and when did my name turn to Sarah?” I asked and she stood up immediately.
“hmm.. I smell muffins, I’m starving let’s go eat lunch together” she said and dragged me up. She’s sure acting weird since I wasn’t in the mood to question her anymore I let her drag me out of the class. We both walked out of the class and I bumped into James with my head hiting his chest.
“ouch.. That hurt” he said dryly and he saw me and smiled.
“sorry” I apologized and he laughed.
“I’m giving you till Friday James, Friday!!” Tracey barked at James before walking into the class.
“sure thing mom” James said sarcastically and Tracey turned and gave him a small glare.

James, victoria, and i ate lunch together and I “kind of” missed molly not seeing her or eating with her. And left me wondering where she was but I later realised she’ll be with Tracey.
While we’re eating Esther walked up to us and sat down beside Victoria, she said hi to the three of us and I was the only who replied Her cause James and Victoria were having a mouth full.
“so finally, I’m a little free from school’s president stuff and to celebrate, I’m having a sleepover and I’m inviting all my very good friends” Esther said and Victoria turned to her. “really?” she said with her mouth full.
“I’m muff spleefova.” victoria tried to speak and ended saying a bunch of messed up words and Esther passed her a bottle water and she took it from Esther and gulped it all down.
“I love sleepovers” Victoria corrected her self.
“that’s why I’m inviting you first, and you and you” Esther smiled referring the you and you to James and I.
“I’m not coming.” James said.
“what why?” Esther asked sadly.
“no reason, I’m not coming” Jame’s replied and Esther held his hand which made me glared at it a little bit which made James slipped his hand out of her grip.
“C’mon.. James.. It could be like old times, I’ll even invite Kaden and Lucas too.. Please James” Esther begged but James shook his head negatively.
“why aren’t you going?” I asked him.
“like I said no reason, I just don’t want to go” James said and I blinked rapidly. “I’m going and you’re going too” I stated and James sigh “whatever”.
“what’s this, I invited you and you said no, she ordered you and you agreed is she your girlfriend or what?” Esther rolled her eyes.
“you can say that again” James scoffed, Esther gazed at me a little. before turning back to Victoria.
“okay, it’s sweet you three are coming, I have to go invite the others” Esther said and walked away.
“it’s been ages since we all had a slumber party together, I think it’s going to be awesome” Victoria suggested.
“I think it’s going to be boring” James added, while I just ate my food thinking about nothing but the slumber party.
Lunch break was over and we all went back to class. Our history teacher came and he said we should get ready and start to prepare our project cause it’s remaining three week before the semester ends, I kind of registered late.. Well it’s not bad I’ll still have my final year and prom here but till next year…
After that we had biology and then art before school was finally closed, as I packed my books inside my bag, Catherine walked passed me not knowing my foot was in her way she tripped and almost fell, I don’t know how blind she is but she should have looked harder. I mean how could she not know.
“bitch, you did that on purpose didn’t you?” Catherine huffed.
“or you actually did that on purpose so you could find a way to take it down with me” I said and she glared at her.
“you bitch, apologize?” she yelled gaining a small amount of attention from different angles of the class.
“I’m sorry” I smirked. And carried my bag, she seemed a little bit amused by my apology and I slowly walk up to her
“address me as bitch again, and I’ll show you what bitches feel and act like” I threatened and walked up to James, one thing about girls like Catherine is that they look for that little frightened part of you and then take advantage of it and the next day you get bullied, and then the next day and the next day and that’s how your life ends, peer pressure. But if you stand up to your height and give them a taste of their own medicine they’ll be the frightened one, when some one is actually prettier than them or smarter than them, they find a way to crush that person, I’ve already crushed myself and I don’t need another damn crusher.
“ready?” I asked James.
He nods as he flipped his bag over his shoulder and we both walked out of the class together.
We got to drama class and the drama teacher suggested we rehearse first and we got everything right, we gained applause for our wonderful acting and the next set acted theirs and was applauded also, but the drama teacher had to yell when it was the scene of where Victoria and I are having the mother and daughter talk. Victoria kept mixing up Her words and that made me laugh a bit and the drama teacher yelled at us countless of times, but he calmed down when he noticed Victoria was just nervous and he told me to stop laughing.
Drama class was over and the drama teacher told me Victoria and three other girls who looked kind of familiar, to stay behind and clean the stage. I tried to tell him I did great in all my scene and he agreed but reminded me of my scene with Victoria and i gave in and stayed behind, James wanted to stay too and help me clean but after telling him not to worry and after receiving yells from our drama teacher to go home, he gave me a heart-throbing smile before leaving.
:
“I’m tired” Victoria whined as she picked up the broom-stick and shoving it inside the hole of the broom, “you haven’t even cleaned a single thing” I tell her and she sighed. “I know! thinking about it is making me more weaker” Victoria said and I laughed,. “don’t be a lazy bed and let’s clean that place, look at those girls they’re on fire” I said and Victoria turned to look at the three girls who were busy cleaning without any distraction. “okay you go ahead, I’ll be with you in a minute” Victoria said, and her voice echoed. I shook my head negatively and pulled her. “C’mon”.
“seriously Sam, I’ll be there”.
“be where?, we’re already there, just start cleaning” I giggled.
“but…
“no buts, if we clean in time we’ll go home earl––
“yea she’s so rude” I was interrupted by one of those three girls saying that and I had a feeling they were talking about me.
“excuse me?” I said to them and they turned to me.
“what?” one of them said.. “are you just talking about me just now?” I asked to be sure. I hate back blabbers.
“it’s you, and what are you going to do about it?” another one said and I scoffed. “I remember I don’t owe any of you girls money”.
“she’s the Samantha right?” one of the girls at the back whispered to the one in her front. “yeah” the front girl whispered .. “she’s still as rude as they say” the one at the back said and I breathed in.
“you’re just like everyone is saying rude selfish and Proud, people like you are meant to be g–
“hold on there cupcake” I said to the girl talking she had black long hair and she stood beside the girl in front. “you and I don’t know each other neither have we ever talk so what’s with your choice of words” I asked angrily.
“your friend didn’t want to work and yet you were still pressuring her Isn’t that wickedness?” the girl with black hair said and I scoffed.
“you’re not her and she’s not you and–
“she wasn’t pressuring me so it’s better if you guys mind your businesses” Victoria interrupted me and the girls looked a bit astonished by that but the one at the back huffed and they all mind their business , “looks like she bewitched Her friend” I heard one said but I ignored them.
“you know what, let’s start cleaning and go home early” Victoria said and I nod and we both did.
Evans drove me home and when I got home, I took a long bath that my skin started to get wrinkles. I wrapped a towel around my body and walked into my room to see Naomi on my bed, with my laptop and seeing me she dropped it.
“hi” she smiled at me.
“hey, when did you get here?” I smiled back.
“a few seconds ago, I came back from school and I was bored so I decided to come here, maybe you have something interesting to tell me?” Naomi smiled but I shook my head negatively..
“what were you doing with my laptop?” I asked. “I was just checking the web for stuffs interesting” she replied with a nervous grin.
“then why’d you stop?” I asked.
“I thought you’d be mad seeing me with it” she sighed
“well I’m not, you should totally continue with whatever you’re doing” I smiled.
“really?”.. She looks surprise. “yeah”.. She smiled happily and grabbed my laptop.
After wearing a white T-shirt and a short mini jeans skirt, I sat down in front of my dressing mirror and from the drawer beside it, I pulled out my hair dryer, I plugged it in and started to dry my hair. Naomi suddenly stood up and took the dryer from my hand “let me help” she beamed.
“thanks” I said. We both remained quiet as she dried my hair, and then looking at myself in the mirror I asked.. “Naomi, am I rude?”
“what?..tch.. no..” she said and rolled her eyes and I grabbed the hair dryer from her and turned it off dropping it on the drawer,
“tell me the truth, am I rude?” I asked again as she sat down on the bed opposite me.
“well..well.. A little bit” she whispered. Who’s she whispering to
“really?” I asked to be sure.
“well a lot” she added and my brows arched. “everyone says, I’m rude selfish and proud is that true?” I asked again but she gave no reply…
“Naomi…. ” I called and she sighed.
“well… yeah,” she said and stood up. I breathed in trying to sulk in my heavy tears, have I really been that bad. I covered my face with my palm and cried lightly in my arms.
“oh my god, I seriously didn’t mean to make you Sam, I’m sorry” Naomi said as she knelt in front of me and I pulled her in a tight and cried even more.
“I’m sorry” she said guiltily.
“I’m sorry if I haven’t been good to you, I’m sorry it’s taking me just now to grow up, I’m really sorry” I sniffed.
“it’s okay, if you haven’t been good to me I would have gave up years ago of being friends with you but I liked you for you that’s why I’m still here” Naomi said and I hugged her tightly.. I’ve been blind to see that I’ve been blessed with a good friend….
when i was little my mom took me to this children summer funfair and every kid there wanted to talk to me but my mom said I should not talk to them cause they were not up to our class that they’re just dirt and I stood side by side with my mom even though I wanted to talk to them badly and Naomi was among then, she was dressed in all yellow except her shoes which were pink exactly like mine and I was dressed in all pink, every mother had to let go of their child and let them have fun their selves and when all the children were all alone no one wanted to talk to me because of the way I treated them but then Naomi walked in front of me as I watched the children play together without me. I remembered the first words she said to me.
“hey we’re wearing the same shoes”
After those words we became friends I thought I we would never see each other again after that day but we ended leaving so close. As we grew up my mom couldn’t separate us and then I snapped and became this girl everyone hates but still Naomi loved me for me and I love her more..
