💞Anel’s POV💞

“Your throat looks funny” I laughed as i watched him gulp down his water.

He also laughed.

I threw back my head and laughed more.
I raised it back and gasped in shock,i saw someone clad in a pair of blue faded jeans,black singlet and a mask over his face,holding a rod and standing behind Dan.

How did he get here?

He held a rod and raised it up.

“Nooooo” I screamed but it was too late,the rod landed hard on Dan’s head.
He fell on the grass,part of his head had tore open and blood gushed out, making the green grass turn red.

My breathing hitched,i sat still in shock,i couldn’t move,my legs trembled and my eyes were filled with tears.

I heard some movement and watched as the anonymous perpetrator ran away.

I bent slowly beside Dan and shook him but he didn’t respond.
I was still in shock,i don’t know what to do,my lips trembled and i couldn’t utter a word.

“Help!!!” My voice broke through the whole school.

🥀🥀🥀

“I knew you’ll end up hurting him!” Jacq screamed in my face, cleaning her tears.

Dan has been brought to the school infirmary,the nurses are attending to him right now.

“You’re a screw” Karissa also yelled at me.
“Will you both stop yelling!” Travis shouted at them.
Karissa hissed and continued pacing the infirmary passageway.

I laughed sadly…

“You still have the gut to laugh after what you did! You’re such a cruel person” Jacq said.

There’s nothing that stop me from beating up both Karissa and Jacq right now but i can’t! Not when Dan is in there, going through pain.

Everything just happened in a flash,the perpetrator bolted away real quick and i remember seeing a love tattoo with three dots at the back of his neck.
He’s surely a grown up man and i promise to hunt him.

I’m damn sure the person is in this school or how else would he have entered without the gatekeeper’s knowledge and it was clearly because of me.

All this didn’t happen when Dan wasn’t my friend.
Just two days…two days of our friendship and he’s hurt!
What if we continue our friendship… he’ll probably die.

I never wanted this friendship thing in the first place!
But Dan made me want it and now he’s hurt because of me.

Maybe he’ll stop hurting if i stop being friends with him.

Can i do that?

Even if it’s just two days,I’ve gotten used to Dan and always look forward to his company.
I think i should call off this friendship thing while it’s still early,not when i won’t be able to live without him.

Everything should return to the way it was so everyone can be safe.
I’m sorry Dan but i have to do this.
Good thing he has two friends,I’ll continue with my lonely lifestyle and everything will be great.

But why does that hurt?

I’ve been lonely for years and i was fine with it,i can cope but not when i’ve experienced what friendship is like.

Aaaargh…what am i gonna do!

“Asanel” A voice jolted me out of my thoughts.
I raised my head and saw it was Travis.
He smiled and licked his lips and i felt like hitting him with the whole infirmary instrument.

“Mrs Oliver requests your presence” He said.
I started walking to Mrs Oliver’s office and noticed he was behind me.

“What?” I asked harshly.
“I was told to escort you,you might want to slip away after hitting Dan” He said.

Like seriously?
Everyone thinks i hit Dan?

I continued walking..

“But I’m the only one that believe you though,cause i love you” he said.

Why does that sound irritating?
I’ve heard “I love you” from countless guys,why does this sound the most irritating?

I got to Mrs Oliver’s office and knocked.

“Come in” Her loud voice sounded through the door.

I opened the door and walked in, Travis also walked in after me.

“Travis stay behind” She said to him and i nearly laughed as i watched him go out of the door.
“Good afternoon Mrs Oliver” I bowed a little.
“Good afternoon,have your seat” She said and i did.

“I want to know what happened” She said.
“We were both in the garden…”
“The garden is restricted for lunch,you don’t eat in the garden while the cafeteria is available. If you had both been in the cafeteria,the perpetrator wouldn’t have hurt Dan but you were both alone in the garden,thereby open to a lot of dangers” She said and signalled me to continue with what i was saying.

“I didn’t know how the person got behind Dan,he held a rod and suddenly hit Dan.”
“He? How did you know he’s a man?”
“The faded jeans he wore revealed his manly legs,the singlet he wore revealed his muscles and broad shoulders,there is no mistaking that he’s a man” I said.

“Did you see his face?” She asked.
“He wore a mask” I said.
“Wow,then how did he enter the school premise without the gatekeeper’s knowledge,the security alarm didn’t also sound..I need to call Theo” She said and punched some numbers in the landline on her table.

Theo is the gatekeeper and i also can’t wait to hear what he’s gonna say.

She picked up the receiver and listened for a dial tone.

📞Theo,meet me in my office” She dropped and dropped the receiver.

She brought out some files from her drawer and began going through them.
*
The door opened and Theo walked in.

“Good afternoon Mrs Oliver” He greeted.
“You heard of what happened to Daniel Shaw?” She asked him.

Shaw?

I think she mixed it up,Dan’s last name is Marton.
Haha … could this mean she’s also a fan of Bryan Shaw and his last name got in her mouth.
It could happen to me too.

“Yes ma’am” Theo said.
“Who entered the school compound last?” She asked.
“No one, except students who came in the morning”
“Really?”
“Yes, I’m by the gate and I’m perfectly sure no one came in,i didn’t open the gate for anyone besides no one knocked” He said.

“Go meet Eryn in the security room and tell her to check the footage of the recent activities in the school” Mrs Oliver said to Theo who left immediately.

She sighed.
“Truly,Theo never leaves his duty post” She said.

We both waited in silence waiting for Theo to return,her landline rang instead.

“Eryn” She said before picking up the receiver.

I didn’t know what Eryn said at the other end.

📞You mean no one came into the school at all?

Now I’m very sure the perpetrator is in this school and damn! I’m gonna track him down.

***

I walked back to the infirmary after Mrs Oliver dismissed me.

I can’t believe this would happen,we were both excited about going to see Mil and other actors but now it’s all ruined.

I walked into the infirmary and saw the loquacious nurse talking to Jacq and Karissa.
I rushed to them.

“How’s he?” I asked.
“He’s fine, he has been treated but he refused to go to the hospital” She said.
“Why not leave him here?” I asked.
“We can’t,we only work during school hours,we go home at the same time with the students and i don’t think it’s nice if we leave him alone here, he’s gonna need medical care from time to time” She said.

“Why is he refusing to go to the hospital?” I asked ignoring jacq’s glare.
I expected karissa’s glare not jacq’s.
I don’t just like her.

“His parents. They are on a trip, he doesn’t want them to know about what happened to him, they’ll be damn worried and start coming home straightaway,he doesn’t want them to lose the contract they went there for” She said and i nodded in affirmative.

“True,so what are we gonna do?” I asked.
“I can’t believe you’re talking to me” She smiled.

There goes she and her madness…

“What are we going to do?” I asked again.
“I don’t also know” She said .
“I’m thinking of something” I said.
“Okay what?” She grinned.

“Would you please accept to treat him at home?”
She was about refusing but i applied my puppy eyes.
“Okay” She breathed.
“I’ll pay you for it” I said.
“No,no Dan is just like my sibling. I’ll take care of him without collecting a dime” She said.

“OMG thanks so much” I smiled.
“You smiled?” She asked in surprise.
“Damn! You need to see how beautiful you looked when smiling”

I nodded “Can i go see him now?”
“Uhm yes” She answered and pointed to the ward.
“We’ve been asking you how Dan is but you didn’t say a thing, until she came!” Karissa half yelled.

I ignored them and walked to Dan’s ward.
I opened the door and saw him laying on the bed with his eyes closed,a bandage was wrapped round his head and a drip was connected to his hand,he looked so pale.

I walked slowly towards him and stood by his bed.
His breathing was the only thing that sounded in the ward.

Tears filled my eyes as i watched him breath slowly.
We were playing just now before all this happened.
Who would have thought this would happen.

I held his free hand and cried.
It’s better to stop this friendship to avoid further danger.
The person who did this is watching us closely.

My eyes got clearer when his hold tightened on mine.

He’s awake!
Smiling.

I saw his face wet with my tears.
Damn!
I quickly wiped it off.

His normal bright eyes were dull and he tried to smile but i know he’s in pain.

“Dan I’m sorry” I said and slipped my hand from his.
“For what?” He asked weakly.
“Are you okay now?” I asked.
He nodded and winced in pain…
“OMG are you okay?” I asked.

“Yeah…I am”
“You don’t want to go to the hospital right?” He nodded.
“I’ve told that nurse…the one who talks a lot” I paused when he smiled.
“Nurse Ella” He said and i nodded.
“I told her to come take care of you at home that I’m gonna pay her but she refused and said she won’t collect a dime from you”

He smiled weakly…”Thanks Anel”
I nodded.
“Is it painful?” I asked.
“Not really” He said.
“Sorry” I said.
“Thank you, and thanks again” He said.

Thanks again?

The door opened… Jacq and Karissa bursted in heading straight to the bed.
Jacq pushed me out of the way,i dragged her back and stayed at my former position daring her to come close to me.

She hissed and walked to the other side of the bed.

“Dan how are you?” They chorused.
“I’m fine” He smiled.

“She caused everything! You shouldn’t have been friends with her,while you were with us, nothing of such happened” Karissa glared.
“Yes! If you weren’t with her,that wouldn’t have happened. She caused everything” Jacq added.

“Com’on!” Dan scolded.
“She didn’t cause anything, stop accusing her wrongly..” He said.
“I can’t believe you’re taking her side after she hurt you!” Jacq said.
“Stop saying this! She didn’t hurt me okay? Even if she did,I’m the affected person” He said and squeezed my hand.

“What’s happening here” Nurse Ella walked in.
“Everyone should leave,return when school’s over, Mrs Olivia will soon be here” She said.

“We’ll like to stay” I said.
“Only one person is allowed to stay,Mrs Oliver can’t come in here and meet the three of you” She said.

“I will stay with him,the rest should leave” Karissa said.
“I’ll stay with him” Jacq said.
“You leave!” She pointed to me.

“Dan,choose who you want to stay with you” Jacq said to Dan.
There was silence as everyone waited for him to talk.
He didn’t.

“You know what? Everyone should leave,come back when school’s over, we’ll be discharging him then” Nurse Ella said.
“No ,he should choose” Jacq said.

“I’ll be leaving,see you when school’s over Dan” I smiled and walked out.
I breathed in fresh air when i got to the hallway.

“Ta-da” Travis appeared in front of me.
Ah! I nearly had an attack.

“Get lost!” I spat and walked to the classroom.
I opened the door and stepped in,the students stupid gaze followed me till i got to my seat.

I sat down and helped Dan pack his books in his backpack.
I zipped it and dropped it on his seat.
I know we still have a subject to go before school’s over.

I’m so worried about Dan.
He would be going home this noon,his parents are on a trip. Who’s gonna take care of him and his brother.
I think he’ll need to employ a house help for a week before his parents are back.

I feel i caused all this.

Jacq and Karissa walked into the classroom looking like they had a quarrel.
I personally don’t like this Jacq,she looks like she harbor things deep in her mind. Karissa looks like a free-minded person.

Whatever!

💋School over💋

I zipped my backpack and stood up.
I hung it over my shoulders and proceeded to carry Dan’s but Jacq was faster.
She carried it and quickly walked out of the class with Karissa.

Fools!

***

I got to the infirmary and entered Dan’s ward,they were preparing him to leave.

He smiled on seeing me and i smiled back.
I walked to him,he was sitting up on the bed now.

“How’re you feeling now?” I asked.
“Fine, thanks”

Jacq and Karissa were beside him doing nothing but stare.

So what were they rushing here for?

I don’t know how to break the news to Dan.
We need to quit our friendship to keep him out of danger.

Nurse Ella walked in…

“So,your driver is waiting downstairs. I’ll be coming to treat you everyday after school okay?”
“Thanks Nurse Ella” Dan said.
“It’s nothing,so get up..I’ll take you to your car” She helped him up.

He stood up and with the help of Nurse Ella,he walked outside the ward.
We all followed him till we got to the school gate,students turned and looked at him in pity.
The female students tried to get to him but Nurse Ella held them back.

We showed the gate keeper our ID card before walking out of the gate.
He was led towards a blue Ferrari.

His driver came out and gasp.

“Dan what happened?” He asked.
“You should discuss everything when you get home,he needs to rest” Nurse Ella said.

The driver nodded and quickly opened the backseat door which revealed a young boy.

“Geez!” He screamed when he saw Dan.
“Dan,what happened to you,who hurt you..just tell me” He cried and i was surprised.

He’s surely Dan’s brother,he looks cute enough and he has this stubborn look.. I’m surprised he broke down easily,he loves his brother so much.

“I’m fine Mike” Dan said still holding on to Nurse Ella.
“You are not! I’m coming to beat up the person who did this to you” He said and started coming out of the car.
The driver held him down and Dan was led into the backseat,his backpack was dropped beside him.

Karissa opened the front door to sit but nurse Ella stopped her.
“No one is going with him!” She said and shut the door.

“I’ll come see you Dan” I said,glad that i have his home address.
“Okay,bye guys” He waved.

We waved back,the door was shut closed and the driver got behind the wheels.
I saw Mike pestering Dan before the car sped away.

“Thanks Nurse Ella for wanting to help” I said.
“You’re welcome and your voice sounds best,i would love if you continue this way” She grinned and walked back into the school.

Jacq, Karissa and i stood there .
I made sure their cars arrived before i board a cab.
I already called Mum not to come pick me.

“Finite estate phase 4” I said to the cab man before getting in.

💋💋💋

I entered Dan’s living room and was wowed when i saw Bryan Shaw’s artworks,some hanged on the wall and the rest were arranged neatly on the floor.

I walked closer to them and touched it one after the other.
It’s all looking beautiful and unique, different from the ones i do see online.

It gave the living room a kind of classic look.
The furnitures shone and the main living room sparkled to my delight.

It’s obvious fortunes were spent on this house.
It looks exactly like a celebrity home.

Did Dan love Bryan Shaw artworks this much to have dozens of them in one living room.

I guess he’s a die hard fan than i am.

“Dan is in his room” I heard a small voice said and was startled.
I turned and saw Dan’s younger brother walking towards me.

He’s still in his school wears.

“How’re you?” I asked.
“I’m not fine cause my brother is not” He said sadly.
“He’ll be fine soon okay?”
He nodded. “Come with me,he told me to bring you up when you arrive”

I smiled and followed him, checking out the structure of the house .

Damn!

Dan lives in wealth…this house is just too beautiful,the colours were matching,the house looks cool.
I was more overwhelmed when i saw more of Bryan Shaw’s artwork as we walked to Dan’s room.

Wow…Dan is surely a crazy fan.
I wish I can set Bryan Shaw’s artworks this way in my house but the strong headed Liam won’t agree.

💋

“Anel,what do you mean by we have to quit our friendship?” Dan asked.

I’m in his room,which look beautiful and classic like the living room.
I just broke the news to him.

“I’m sorry Dan but you’ll get more hurt if you’re with me,you got hurt today because of me” I said trying to hold my tears.
“Who told you that! Anel how could you say this,i didn’t get hurt because of you..it was destined to happen so why blame yourself” He said and i sensed pain in his voice.

“No Dan,you just won’t understand..you got hurt because of me,all this didn’t happen while you were friends with Karissa and Jacq but just two days of been with me..your head was broken..if we continue our friendship, it might hurt you further and i don’t want that..” I said.

“Come off it,stop speaking this way. I’m damn surprised,i know you to be a fearless person. Where’s all this coming from?” He sat up on his bed.

“I’m sorry Dan, I’m sorry it had to happen this way”
“Like,are you serious?” He asked.
“Yeah”
“It’s fine,you never wanted to my friend anyway” His voice quivered.

“If i never wanted to be your friend,i wouldn’t have been your friend in the first place. I’m doing this to make us safe. I can’t be selfish to continue this friendship while your life is in danger” i said, trying to hide the emotion in my voice.

I feel like bursting into tears right now.
I’m surprised tears have not fallen from my eyes.

“I can’t believe you’re saying this,i can’t believe you could give up our friendship this easily..we are meant to face difficult things together but you chose to quit,it’s okay..you can leave” his voice quivered and i saw him wiped his face.

“I’m sorry” I said and walked out of his room.

I descended the stairs slowly with tears running down my eyes.

“What happened?” Mike asked.
I shook my head and wiped my tears away.

I got to the living room, trying hard to hold another round of tears.

I opened the door only to burst into Karissa and Jacq.

“You thought you were smart” They both said, pushing their way in.

I ignored them and walked out of the door.
My heart felt heavy as i dragged my feet to the gate.

I couldn’t walk anymore,i stood there and bursted into another round of tears…

I shouldn’t be crying,i should be prepared to continue my lonely life.

Oh no!

I cried harder.

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..
