‘psycho!’ I thought.
“What did you just say?” She asked.
Did i said that aloud!
“What did you just say?” She asked again.
“Uh..hmm, i mean the author of this novel is a psycho” I lied.
She gave me a weird look before turning.
She grabbed the paper bag and dropped it on my table.
“Your clothes” She said without sparing me a glance.
Didn’t she just said ‘hello’ to me.
Damn! I was so happy, thinking she’s changed.
I watched as she packed her hair to a side.
She brought out a notebook from her backpack and started studying.
“I’ll help you with the notes you missed during the week” I said to her.
“Thanks,but i already have the notes” She said without glancing up from the book.
I wish she could just glance at me,those black eyes are so appealing.
“H..how?” I asked.
“I have the scheme of work with me and please stop talking to me” She said and i swallowed.
Her psychoactive is back!
Mrs Claus walked into the classroom and i swore under my breath.
I hate biology!!!
Three teachers came after Mrs Claus before the bell for lunch break was rung.
Jacq and Karissa walked to my seat,so we can go to lunch break together like we normally do but I’m worried about psycho,her head has been bent during the classes till now.
I stared at her and wished i could ask her what’s wrong.
“Dan let’s go for lunchbreak” Jacq held my hand.
I noticed Karissa stood a bit far than usual, trying to avoid psycho.
I reluctantly stood up and tucked my hands in my pockets.
I wish i could tell them to leave ahead of me but i know Jacq won’t have any of it.
She warned me not to give excuses during lunch break after what happened between Travis and i.
I glanced at psycho again before walking out of my seat.
I was about walking with Karissa and Jacq when i stopped.
I can’t leave her.
It’s unlike psycho to have her head bowed all day.
“You guys should go,i need to take some cash in my backpack” I lied.
“That’s worth waiting for” Jacq said and sat on a chair.
“I don’t know the exact place i kept it,i need to search for it and that will take some time,you know how large my backpack is” I said and was glad she stood up not until she said;
“I’ll help you search for it,I’ll make it fast” She said walking to my backpack.
“Wait” I stopped her.
“What’s all this? I’m starving!” Karissa said.
“That was the reason i said you should leave with Jacq,I’ll join you both soon,go set up our table at the cafeteria” I said.
Karissa dragged the reluctant Jacq out of the class and i sighed in relief.
The classroom is almost empty,just few students…
I turned back and was surprised to see psycho, sitting and eating chips.
I thought something was wrong with her.
Should i go join Karissa and Jacq or walk back to my seat.
My eyes met with hers, it remained that way for minutes before she removed her gaze.
I wasn’t close to her but i saw clearly how her long lashes flipped.
She brought put a bottle of water from her backpack.
Am i going to stand here, starving and watch another person have lunch.
I started walking out of the classroom.
“Daniel” I heard Psycho called and i almost peed in my pants,the way my name came out fluently from her mouth surprised me.
If I’m to pick someone with the best pronunciation of my name,then psycho will come first.
I turned to look at her.
‘come’ She signalled with her fingers.
I half ran to my seat, excited she’s calling me to join her.
I sat down and faced her.
She was not facing me this time,she was facing the garden.
Didn’t she just call me?
Did i misheard?
I cleared my throat and was about speaking but she spoke first still facing the garden though.
“I always find it difficult to relate with people outside my family circle, but Dan you’re an exception” She said and i grinned hard.
I’m glad she wasn’t look at me.
She continued ” I hate friends and i never had one since i was eight, i feel sad that im now betraying my vow,i had made up my mind not to have friends. Friends are the most deceitful people on earth,they lead one into a web and leave the person to tangle their way out”
I sighed,” I knew there was a reason behind your behavior but Anel,let me make this clear. There are different types of friends and how will you know them if you don’t associate with them. Even if one has bad friends,no matter how they lead one into a web,if you don’t want to be led then you won’t be”
She laughed and turned to me and i stifled a gasp when i saw how red her eyes were,she has been crying,her eyes now look puffy,her cheeks were sticky and more tears dropped from her eyes.
I shifted in my seat and looked at her.
“M..my mum died at sixteen” She cried holding her chest with sadness in those beautiful eyes.
Ah! I cried for days when i lost my granny,what if it was my mum.
We are not very close but I’m not sure I’ll survive the news of her death.
Psycho didn’t even get to see her Mum,that hurts badly.
“I’m so sorry about that,It’s okay” I said but she didn’t stop crying.
Thank goodness our seats were a bit hidden,no one would easily see her crying.
I felt so hurt seeing her cry,and i kinda feel responsible for it.
I wish i could pull her in my arms and hug her tightly but i don’t want to have a death wish yet.
I held my hand to stop it from patting her back consolingly.
“It’s okay Anel” I said.
My stubborn hand were starting to reach slowly to her, it landed on her back soothingly and i expected her to yell or slap my hand away,she didn’t but she stopped crying instead.
Her mum died at sixteen,does that mean she died not long after psycho was born?
“It’s okay” I said and she nodded.
I wiped her tears with my hands and she was as surprised as i was.
Even after realising what I’m doing,i didn’t stop and she didn’t stop me either.
I wiped her tears and kept muttering “It’s okay”
How could someone’s cheeks be this soft and smooth.
“I know i shouldn’t say this but you look more cute when crying” I said and she managed to smile.
“Thanks for wanting to share part of your little world with me,i will make your perception of friends positive and you’ll find yourself wishing you had friends before now”
“I can never regret that i don’t have friends before now,as a matter of fact,you’re the only one I’m allowing into my little world,no one else” She said.
“You mean, you won’t have any other friend apart from me?” I asked and she nodded.
“That’s almost the same as being friendless” I said wishing she could be friends with more people.
“It’s almost the same but it’s not the same,every action i take has a reason…if you want me to be friends with everyone then forget being my friend, I’ll remain on my own” She said.
“N..no Anel don’t get me wrong,I’m sorry and I’m glad the most beautiful girl in makers high school wants to be my friend” I smiled.
She rubbed her cheeks and clicked her tongue at me.
We both laughed and damn! It felt so good.
“So,friends now?” I asked after our laughter subsided.
“Yes” She said.
“Wow..I’m so glad,come over for ‘friend hug’ ” I said.
“Yeah, we’re friends now. It won’t hurt if we hug” I said.
I still need to teach her a lot of things about friends.
“I’ve never hugged anyone outside my family circle” She said.
“Really?” I asked.
“Well..I’m glad I’ll be the first. You don’t have to hug me if you don’t want to,i just feel it’s neces…”
“I’ll hug you” She smiled and pushed her chest forward.
“That’s how i hug my dad” She said.
“Okay,come closer” I said.
“You are the one to come closer” She said.
“No, you’re the one”
“You’re the one”
“I’m not the one”…
We were left staring at each other waiting for who will come closer first.
I know it’s weird but it’s fun as well.
We came closer at the same time and i finally pulled psycho into a hug.
Why’s she pressing her chest on mine this hard.
I touched the hair I’ve always yearned to touch and oh..my… goodness,i felt so high.
I couldn’t understand the feeling the hug is giving me.
I hugged Jacq countless times and I’ve never felt this way .
There’s this exciting feeling that makes you wanna hug more tightly.
My hand was still in her hair and i closed my eyes inhaling the fragrance of her shampoo.
It smelt of honey mixed with flowers. I couldn’t get more of it.
Two minutes passed and we were still hugging.
Six min… before i felt something hard hit my forehead.
My eyes popped open and i disengaged from the hug rubbing my forehead.
“What?” Psycho asked.
“Aren’t you the one that hit me?” I asked.
“Hit you,no i didn’t” She said.
My gaze went straight to the open window and i saw Travis standing by the window with a scornful look, holding three pieces of stones.
He stoned me!
“You again!” Psycho yelled and stood up but i held her back.
“Why the hell did you hug her! knowing well that i have the hots for her” He yelled and i looked at psycho.
“We only did that as a friend” I said with gritted teeth,not wanting to make my anger obvious.
“Ohh! You’ve succeeded in becoming her friend right? I’ll make you her enemy soon and you” He pointed to psycho. “I’ll have you by all means” He threatened and stormed away.
“Says a school prefect with zero brain..Scum bag” psycho shouted after him.
I smiled and watched her,she was still facing the window trying to get more words at Travis.
Her neck looks shiny and smooth and i had to resist the urge to touch it.
She faced me and her hair swayed in the process,she tucked it to a side.
“It looks like you gat a bump on your forehead” She said and touched it slightly.
I winced in pain.
“Sorry,let’s go to the infirmary and after that we’ll go report that dumbass” She said.
“No,just let him be. I’ll sort out this bump with ice cubes when i get home”
I quickly bent and crawled under my desk when i saw Jacq entered the class searching for me.
“Tell her I’m not here” I whispered to psycho who laughed.
“Hey did you see Dan?” I heard jacq’s voice.
Psycho wore a frown,she didn’t answer Jacq,she twisted the cap of her bottle water and gulped it down her throat.
“I shouldn’t have asked a dumb person” Jacq said.
“Says a fool who looks like an Irish cat” Psycho said and gulped more water.
I covered my mouth with my hands to stop my laughter.
“Huh!” Jacq yelled angrily.
My back was starting to ache, i don’t know if Jacq has gone or not..I’m not seeing clearly under the dark desk,the only person im seeing clearly is psycho.
She kept gulping water and i think it’s because Jacq is still here.
Ah! My back.
I was starting to sweat.
“She has left for over ten minutes” Psycho said and i exclaimed.
“What! And you left me there” I said, coming out from the desk slowly.
“You chose to stay there” She said.
This girl is a real psychopath!
I stood up and stretched, relieving the pain off my back.
I sat down and looked at psycho.
“I need water” I said.
She laughed and passed her remaining water to me.
I gulped it down and sighed before tossing the bottle in the trash bin.
“Thats not an attribute of a friend” I said.
“Serves you right” She stuck out her tongue and i smiled.
She opened her backpack and brought out two packs of chips,she handed me one and i collected it, opened it and started chewing.
“I’m still waiting for ‘thanks’ ” She said.
“We are friends now, ‘thanks’is not necessary” I said.
“You mean,friends does not say thanks to each other?” She asked.
“Of course friends say thanks to each other but that’s only when necessary” I said and she nodded.
I remembered the chocolate and smiled.
“I gat something better for you” I said and dropped the chips on the desk,i opened my backpack and brought out the box of chocolate.
“Oh..my..God” She half screamed as she grabbed the chocolates from me.
She opened the box,took a chocolate, unwrapped it and threw it in her mouth.
“Yummy” She said as she chewed it.
She’s already on the fourth one.
I stared at her in amazement.
She’s a chocoholic.
I’m gonna buy more chocolates for her.
Watching her chew it happily also made me happy.
Who would have thought psycho will be my friend just two weeks of getting to this school.
Is that how special i am?
I hope this is not a dream,i won’t like to commit suicide when i wake up.
“Have one too” She said and shoved one into my mouth before i could protest.
I smiled and also chewed it happily.
I didn’t realize lunch break was over until students bursted into the classroom.
I wish they had remained in the cafeteria.
Nothing is as sweet as being alone with psycho .
I tried to hide again but Jacq caught me,i saw the look of surprise in her eyes when she saw me talking to Psycho.
She walked to my seat.
“Dan,you said you’ll meet us at the cafeteria and you disappeared like wind” She said and i know she’s pissed.
“I’m sorry,i was helping Mrs Oliver with some things in her office,i returned just now” I lied.
“Okay,i didn’t know that was it,so you skipped lunch” She said.
“I had some potato chips in her office”
“Ohh.. okay” She glared at psycho who was concentrated on her chocolates.
She walked back to her seat and i sighed,then looked at Psycho who grinned at me.
“Good afternoon class” Mr Jones bursted in.
“Everyone get up” He said and we all did.
“You’re all gonna answer questions from the last topic before sitting down,if you fail to answer my question then you remain standing till the class is over”
He started asking questions, starting from the front,most people remained standing while few sat.
He was approaching us and psycho was so busy with her chocolate.
“Anel” I whispered.
“You!” Mr Jones pointed to her.
She glanced at him,then back at her chocolate.
“Mention three things used to make chocolate” Mr Allen said.
“Cocoa beans, coconut oil and honey… But is that part of geography?” Psycho asked and everyone struggled to hold their laughter.
“You’ll remain standing till the end of this class” Mr Jones said sternly.
“I answered your question” She said shoving another piece of chocolate in her mouth.
Psycho gat what is called ‘guts’.
Mr Jones searched for what to say but couldn’t find any.
“Remain standing like i said” He finally said after long moment of silence.
“I don’t think it’s in the school rules and regulations to tell a student to remain standing after answering your question…Mr Jones,I’m sitting” She said and sat down surprising everyone.
Mr Jones quickly turned to me and asked question.
I answered and sat.
He walked to the front of the classroom and started teaching.
“Anel,why did you do that ?” I asked.
“Do what?” She asked.
“You disobeyed Mr Jones”
“I didn’t,he didn’t keep to his words,he said each student is gonna sit once his question is answered,i answered his question and he told me to remain standing,meanwh
“You should have obeyed him at least” I said.
“Okay,i will. Next time” She said.
I turned back to the board and realised half of the class was staring at us.
They seem surprised to see me talking to psycho.
Haha… Ain’t i lucky.
Jacq and Karissa stood by my table waiting for me to finish packing my books while I was waiting for psycho.
I was done packing my books and psycho was also done with hers.
“Let’s go” I said to her and she stood up and hung her backpack over her shoulders.
I did the same and we both stepped out of our seats.
“Let’s go girls” I said and took psycho’s hand.
I was surprised when Karissa also took my second hand.
She never holds my hand,I’m surprised she did so now.
I tried to slip my hand out of her grip but she held on tightly.
Psycho slipped her hand out of my grip and walked ahead of us.
I fumed as Karissa held my hand till we got to the school gate.
We showed the gatekeeper our school ID card before stepping out of the gate.
Psycho was there, waiting for her car to show up.
I noticed my driver isn’t also here.
Karissa’s car parked in front of us and her maid rushed out to take her backpack.
I made use of the opportunity to slip my hand out of hers.
Her maid took her backpack to her car but she remained standing beside me.
“Won’t you leave” I said trying not to sound harsh.
“No I’ll wait till your car shows up” She said.
“Miss Karissa,boss said he’ll like you to come early for lady emerald’s ball party” her maid said.
Karissa gasped and then smiled.
“That’s true. Bye guys” Karissa said and hopped into her car.
“Bye Dan” Psycho waved and hopped into the backseat of her car.
“Jacq,i need to say hi to her mum” I said to Jacq but she didn’t respond.
She has been behaving this way since lunch break.
Is she still pissed with me for not joining her for lunch.
Well…I’m gonna apologise to her later.
I shifted closer to the car and saw the woman behind the wheel,she’s so beautiful.
“Good afternoon ma’am” I bowed a little.
“How’re you dear?” She asked with one hand on the wheel.
“I’m fine ma’am”
“Pumpkin is this your friend…he’s cuteeeeee” I heard a little girl’s voice from the backseat,i peered closer and saw the girl sitting beside psycho.
Shes a beautiful girl and from what i suspected,she might be psycho’s cousin but that doesn’t matter…she just called psycho pumpkin!
“Hi” I said to the girl.
“Hey, don’t be friends with Asanel. She’ll end up breaking your head” She said and i laughed.
“She won’t” I said and looked at psycho who smiled.
“He trusts me” She whispered to the little girl and stuck out her tongue.
The little girl rolled her eyes and i remembered Mike immediately.
Won’t they be a better match?…haha.
If one has two of this girl or Mike in a house,then the house is gonna collapse.
“Well… Mum,this is my new friend Daniel” She said.
“Really?” Her mum asked like in surprise.
“Daniel, what’s your last name?” She asked.
“Marton” I lied.

HIS GOLDEN SECRET (being perfect) EPISODE 17

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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“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..
