I wake up peacefully today. Like what I am doing everyday, I smile and forget the problems that I have encountered for the past few days.
I know that forgetting the problems is not the best solution, but will I let myself be drown in sadness? Of course not. So that I just smile and do several things for me not to remember the problems I am facing.
"Miss Fatima, are you going to your restaurant today?" I asked.
She is fixing herself up so I think that she is going to her restaurant.
"No. I am going to meet my old friend," she answered.
"But that will not take too long. We will just talk about our lives and after that, I will go home," she get her sling bag and walk towards me to hug a goodbye.
"I'll be home before 1pm. Be ready. Later we will start your piano lesson."
She walk to leave the house while I am the only person here. I locked the door and the gate to ensure my safety. I heard that there are some robbers who enter houses. It is better to prevent that fr happening.
Since I am the only one left in the house, I just read some books from the library.
Yeah, you heard that right. Library.
Miss Fatima is a bibliophile. My dad wants her to be happy so dad built a libraru inside this house. Miss Fatima said that they bought over a thousand books.
"Hmm. What will I read?" I asked myself.
At last, I get The Great Gatsby.
I remember, when I was still a child, Rhea forces me to read this book instead of reading children's book. She said the children's book are just for brainless who will not succeed in life.
Of course, I did what she said. I tried to read the book she wants. But in the end, I surrendred. I can not understand the story for I was still 5 years old when she forced me to read that.
But instead of being mad at this book, I made it as an inspiration to read more and more books, not just today but also in the future.

I am here in my house living and waiting for Dwyane to come here. He has all of the materials that we need in order to conduct our plan to sabotage Fatima's restaurant.
When Dwyane already reached my house, we will prepare and organize all of the materials we are going to use. I know that my plan will work effectively.
I stood up when I heard the doorbell rings. I walk towards the gate to open it for Dwyane.
"Do you have all of the materials?" I asked him.
"Of course," he replied and he showed me a big plastic containing tupperwares.
I smiled and I let him enter the house. I close the gate and followed him inside.
"Look, these materials are fresh. I am sure that Fatima's restaurant will surely go down after this," Dwyane said and he burst out an evil laugh.
I joined his laughter.
He is right. This plan will work, and this will be the cause of Fatima's downfall. With that, I can prove that they are real losers.
Or worse, their costumers will file a case against them after our plan.
I can now imagine their lonely faces after we have done our plan. I can see them begging for me, kissing my shoe, and treating me as their master.

Third Person's POV
Rhea is smiling secretly while she is doing her disguise. She puts black contact lens and a black wig. She also hide her freckles on her face. She made her eyes smaller. She looks at herself in the mirror.
"Wow. You really look an Asian and not an American anymore" Dwyane said. "But you are still beautiful."
"Thank you. You are also," Rhea said.
Dwyane also changes himself. He does some make-ups to make himself look as an Asian. His blonde hair became black. He made his tummy bigger than usual so that he will look very differently from his true appearance.
People will surely not be familiar with their faces.
"We need to change our voice from normal. Can you do that?" Rhea asked Dwyane.
"Yes, I can," Dwyane said using a lower voice that is different from his original voice.
They enter their car and Dwyane start driving while the materials are on the compartment.
"Are you ready?" Dwyane asked
"I am born ready," Rhea said confidently.
While driving their way to the restaurant, Rhea saw Fatima talking to another person outside a mall. Fatima and the lady walk inside the mall.
Rhea thinks that this is a perfect time to conduct their plan. Fatima is not in her restaurant. She can move freely. She can easily made the employees head twirl in just a matter of seconds.
"This will be easy," Rhea said to herself.
Finally, the time has come for Rhea and Dwyane. They finally reached the restaurant. Their materials was packed inside a big bag.
"Good afternoon, Sir, Ma'am," the guard greeted them.
"Please open your bag,"the guard added.
Dwyane open the bag. The guard saw the plastics with a mark of a store. The guard thought that those were their groceries so he let them in.
When they finally have a table, the two sit comfortably.
"Good morning, Ma'am, Sir. This is the menu," the waiter said while handling them the menu.
Rhea smiled. The people here are not able to recognize herself.
"Can I just have a one piece chicken and a rice?" Rhea said.
"That's mine too," Dwyane said.
They ordered rice so that it will look that they are real Asians.
"Two orders of chicken with rice. Please wait for 3-5 minutes for your order."
When the waiter already leave, Dwyane and Rhea stood up to do their plan.
They wait outside the chef's area. Luckily, there are only 5 chefs inside. They wait for the moment.
When the four chefs left the area, they enter the room and Dwyane made the remaining chef to go to sleep because of chloroform.
Rhea removes the plastic from her bag. While holding a tupperware, she walks toward the refrigerator. The tupperware contains crickets, while the one the Dwyane is holding contains cockroaches.
Rhea puts the crickets inside the refrigerator while Dwyane let the cockroaches to fly over the food containers.
After conducting their plan, Rhea and Dwyane get their order as take out and immediately leave the restaurant.
They enter their car and they drive away from the restaurant. They are happy, for they made their plan successfully.
But they did not know that there is a CCTV camera in the chef's area, so as in the parking lot.
Miss Fatima's POVToday is indeed a good day."It is nice to meet you again, Fatima," Sydney, my old classmate and friend, said while having shakehands with me."I feel the same," I replied."Maybe in other times, if we are not busy, we can hangout. I want to meet your husband and also Sarah.""It is my pleasure to introduce you to them. Bye. Have a safe trip to Spain," I said.She gave me a warm hug before leaving.Yes. She is now going to Spain for a business trip. She said that she will stay there for almost three months.Sydney is a very busy person, and also a successful businesswoman.I remember when we are still studying in highschool, we are in the same class. Our subject teachers are mad at her for she does not pass the requirements on time.Sydney is intelligent, but lazy. We
Miss Fatima's POV"Miss Fatima, am I doing well?" Sarah asked me."Yes. You are doing so good," I replied.Her fingers move so fast while playing the Bohemian Rhapsody in piano.While watching Sarah, my phone rings."Sarah?" I interrupt her."Yes?""I am going to answer this call. Just continue on playing."Her nod is a signal that I can leave and answer the phone call.I look at my phone to know who is the caller but the display is just a number."Hello? Who is this?"(Miss Fatima!)Wait! That voice sounds familiar!"Geneveive? Is that you?"Geneveive is my assistant. I feel nervous. She will not call me if there is no emergency in the restaurant.(Ma'am. Please go here in the restaurant. There is a very big
Miss Fatima's POVWe are still here in the restaurant, checking and analyzing the CCTV footage from the chef's area."Can you sat when is the time that the insects were discovered in the chef's area?" PO2 Lopez asked the old woman.The old woman thinks for some second before she answers the policeman's question."Maybe, before 12 noon. I am not sure."The police authorities started to look for the CCTV footage before 12 noon at this day. It took them only a few minutes to find the footage. They start at 11:30 am.We are just sitting still while facing the monitor and keeping our eyes landed on its screen.At the start of the footage, there is nothing suspicious in the chef's area. As usual, the chefs are cooking the orders of the costumers.We just watched the footage. After several minutes, there is still nothing to worry. The policemen
Sarah's POVI feel very frustrated when no one in Rhea's house opened the gate for me. I am here for more than 15 minutes, I kept ringing their doorbell, no one answered. I also shook their gate to get their attention but still, there is no response from the people inside."Excuse me," I get the notice of one of the homeowners in this subdivision."Yes? How may I help you?" he asked."Ahm, is the owner inside of her house? I want to talk to her. I kept ringing their bell but I get no response.""I don't think so. Ma'am Rhea just left her house not that much. Well, today, I only saw her left her house in time of the afternoon. I didn't notice her after that.""Thank you.""You're welcome. Just keep knocking or you may try to call her through phone." he said before he leave.Just like what he said, I continue on ringing their doorbell, and I did
Miss Fatima's POVI can't believe it. Sarah was able to face Rhea without even feeling sad or bereft.I know Sarah. She loved her mother more than her life and herself, so I was surprised at what she said."Sarah, I can't understand you," I said while holding her."Huh? What do you not understand on what I said? I became like her," Sarah replied to me."Sarah, what I'm saying is I don't understand why you have to be like her. Rhea is a kind of person who is arrogant, and she's stumping other people just to get on the top. And I don't want you to imitate her. We better talk about this matter inside the house. "Sarah and I entered the house. I asked her to sat down on the couch first and then went to the kitchen to get something to eat while we are talking. I feel like this is going to be a long and long conversation.While in the kitchen, I h
Sarah's POVMy head is in frustration!I can't understand Miss Fatima. Does she even know that I confront Rhea because I want to help her?"Argh! How difficult life could be?!" I said while massaging my temple.My head is now aching. Maybe because I am stressed, plus the argument that happened a while ago.In order to forget my problems, temporarily, I open my laptop so that I can open my social media accounts and have some chit - chat with my friends. I think it's been a week since I last open my facebook account.I am tapping my fingers in the cursor pad of the laptop while waiting for it to load the home screen."Argh! Why does it took so long?"I almost throw my gadget. Good thing that I manage my temper. If that happens, my father will surely be mad at me. He will say that I am wasting money by destroyi
Third Person's POV"Why? Do I have to?" Sarah said with a poker face.Her sentence is a strong proof to know that there is really something wrong between them.Sandro can now feel the tension between Sarah and Fatima. This is the first time that he sees her daughter like that.Sarah looks very furious. He can see the her daughter is really mad."Of course, you have to. You cannot just leave the house without permission. Don't you think there will be someone worried for you when you losesuddenly?" Fatima exclaimed.Even if Fatima knows that Sarah is angry at her, she still have the concern for Sarah. Fatima knows that Sarah is acting so rude towards her because of argument that happened earlier."I can go outside whenever I want! I am already 18! I have my own decisions for my self!" Sarah shouts at Fatima, saying that she has her own mind to
Third Person's POV"Are you crazy? I can't believe you!" Sandro exclaimed.Sandro was so confused about Sarah. Also, he can not believed that her daughter just said that kind of thing."What do you expect me to think? It feels like you do not trust me anymore!" Sarah shouted between her anger."Stop shouting at me! I am your father! You must learn how to respect me!" Sandro shouted back at her."That is it! You are my father. So you must be the one who will understand my situation. You must understand my reasons why I did that! But you don't!""Do you want to know why I don't trust you?" Sandro asked her daughter."Of course!""Because your reason is nonsense!"Both of them are in the agony over the situation. They are both blazing up. It seems like the two of them cannot understand each other since what they
