Chapter 1: Cassy's Perspective
"Hey Cassy, do you want some garbage? I have a lot of clothes that I have been planning to throw, you want some?" My classmate, Bernadette, insulted me in a slang that a mean girls' ways to talk. Well, if you had a classmate like her, you can imagine how Bernadette talks. And it was definitely irksome, therefore we should not fight back to people like Bernadette, or Berna, that's what most students called her because if we did, we will come to be forever slaves.
I ignored Berna, but the moment I tried to just walked away from her, her group or to be more specific, her friends, plugged up my path.
They stood up in front of me, smirking like witches, feeling happy with the catastrophe. I looked at them and it was so unhappy to examine their eyes, it displayed no sympathy, they were not scared to tormentor students, particularly, the weaker ones.
I sighed and didn't give them any attention, and I knew inside me that I was frightened, yet still trying to hold my composure. And I didn't want them to heed it, once they noticed it, it would surely be my verge.
Berna and her group were the worst bully in our school.
"I'm sorry, Berna, but I really have to go home," I pleaded softly, but seriously.
"But we're not done yet," she laughed as she made circles on her hair using her index finger while chewing her gum.
"So, how was your father's business? And your alcoholic mother?" She poked fun at me.
"Well, what do you expect Berna? Her father might be on the street right now, collecting garbages and some sort of stuff, haha" her friend asserted, glimpsing at me from head to toe, staring, like I am too disgusting that she even bent her lips as she narrowed her eyes.
They laughed together, and I wanted to run away but I couldn't, things might get worst, so I remained mute and just let them say what they wanted to say, and deep inside me, was a hole created by them.
Berna went closer to me and held my shoulder as she slowly moved her head near my head and whispered, "Cassy, I advise you to just run, run and never go back, I don't want to catch a glimpse of you anymore, you're a pain in my eyes, do you know that?" Her voice was threatening me. Her words were not just words, there were things inside each phrase, that was difficult to rationalize, it shivered me.
"Cassy, calm down, Cassy," my tongue kept telling to my ears, and my heart kept speeding up inside me. Actually, I really do want to transfer to another school, but it was too far away from my home and from my work. It will cost a lot, especially when it comes to transportation. But I still had the patience, next year, I will be a college student, and I will be finally free from this sort of humiliation.
"Cassy, do you hear me?" Berna whispered.
"Hey, what are you doing?" I turned my face beside me and saw Drake, a friend of mine, glaring at them.
"Nothing, we're just talking, right, Cassy?" Berna smiled.
"Is that true, Cassy?" Drake asked me. And what else can I do? But to say, yes! I shook my head informing him that Berna was telling the truth and then, he let out a heavy mood from his nose.
"Okay, if that what you said so," he answered.
"So, see you next time, Cassy," Berna said and faked a smile, then she winked at Drake as she waved her hands, moving her fingers, flirting, I should say.
"What made you came here so sudden?" I asked Drake.
"Well, to pick you up," he immediately answered without a second thought.
"Pick me up?" I bent my brows.
"Yeah, come on, Cassy, we're neighbors," he said and grinned. Well, yeah, his house was about a hundred steps away from our home, and it was too embarrassing that he could discern what a family I had.
"Okay," I just answered. And I was surprised when he pulled my bag.
"Hey, what are you going to do with that?" I yelled.
"Let me carry it for you," he said. And I was speechless. Well, he actually confessed his feelings to me, but I can't see him as a man, he was like a brother in my eyes.
I said, "it's okay," but he refused, so I didn't want to make things complicated, I just let him carry my bag. And while walking from school to our home, we're halfway when he suddenly stopped from walking. So, I looked at him in confusion and asked him why did he stop, and I was stunned by what he looked like, he was sad.
"What's the problem, Drake?" I asked him.
"Well, about Bernadette's group, I just remembered about them, why did you lie?" He asked out of nowhere.
"Hah? Why did I lie? What do you mean, Drake," I said, and I saw him sighed as he calms himself.
"Cassy, I know that they are bullying you. But you agreed to them a while ago that you were just talking! I don't understand, I'm worried!" He sincerely said, and I sighed.
I apologized to Drake and explained to him that I just didn't want to make the situation between me and Berna's group worst, he disagreed at first but later on, he understands what I meant. And he just let himself relaxed and we kept walking.
Well, he insisted to walk me in front of our house, but I refused either. It was too uncomfortable for me anymore that he always witness how messy inside our home, I mean how messy my mom is, she always drunk, but I can't just understand how my father understands everything about her, he's too kind in a way you can't imagine.
Before I could let my feet inside our entrance, I heard a loud noise, something was banging inside. I hurried to remove my shoes and went inside, and I was shocked by what I saw.
Chapter 2: Third Person's PerspectiveCassy hurried inside their house and went frozen in a period of time when she saw her father's head bleeding while picking up the broken pieces of bottles on the floor.She glanced at her mother who was squatting on the sofa; a sofa that her father picked up at the street, two months ago. Well, her mother was still soaking up some beer, sitting pretty as if nothing happened. Cassy clenched her hands into a fist, but then, she handled her temper and helped her father."What just happened, dad?" She asked him, her eyes were filled in anguish.Her dad smiled at her and told her it was okay, that it was just an accident, but Cassy was sure that her mother threw the bottle at him.**********When they finished tidying up the mess, Cassy's father washed his face, however, while she was watching her father, she almost wanted to cry."Dad, you always suffer because of Mom, don't you have any plan of leaving her?" She said and her father got shocked that he
Chapter 3: Cassy's PerspectiveI woke up and got frozen as I noticed that I was not at my house, I was inside an unfamiliar place to me, a library. I was in the middle of the place that I could see the whole room, it was a huge library and it was really stunning. In my entire life, I've never seen this huge before- it was big as a palace, and what amazed me, even more, was that it has unexpected leeways for people and the fact that it towering 4 storey."Wow, just wow," my own creation was stuck in this place that I couldn't even step my feet, I just continued to scan the whole place using my eyes. The books are really amazing, the whole place was neat and clean. But I was too curious why there's nobody in here? not even a single person, but the real question was, how did I get in here? I couldn't recall a
Chapter 4: Cassy's Perspective A random voice filled the library which woke me up, and I was shocked to see how many students were here, sitting in every corner of the place, reading different books, laughing with their friends, which made me envious. I wished I had someone like them, with whom I could share my interest, my hobbies, and hang out with, but there was just part of my dreams. I sighed but then, I remembered what happened to me.I wonder why the light didn't fetch me yet? I'm confused, I thought."Come on, Cassy, don't overthink things again, just walked around, it is much better," I mumbled.I roamed around the place and I noticed that no one could see me nor touch me. I was certainly afraid at that moment.I've tried to talk with the students that were passing by but they really couldn't see me. Their eyes never meet mine either.I wanted to cry but it was a waste of time, the fact that nothing will gonna change if I cried. So I lifted my chin up, and just watched the st
CHAPTER 5: ZON'S PERSPECTIVEI guess it was a hapless day! I was fixing the books, organizing them one by one to where it belongs. When I heard Angela's voice, my Ex-girlfriend. My heart was racing too fast, and it was competing with my mind. Honestly, I felt uncomfortable and nervous!"Haiist, not again!" I murmured.I sighed and calmed down, I went down at the ladder and tried to avoid meeting them, but I was too late, yeah, I was too late because, the moment that my feet touched the floor, they were right in front of me, literally. And it was the vastly horrible day ever.I was speechless when I saw her, I didn't know how will I supposed to approach her, and of course, also her new boyfriend.Well, it was absolutely embarrassing, because while I was feeling worried about how will I approach them,they just walked pass by me, as if they have never seen me. It was ac
Chapter 6: Zon's PerspectiveI was still shocked by what happened. I couldn't believe that people like them really exist in this world.Well, I have read an article before, about people from another world.It was about a hundred years ago, when this world we live in, faces such a situation like this, that there are few people who can travel here. It was very preposterous to believe that, who could even imagine that aside from our world, there was another world that exists somewhere? Yet, it was genuine, but according to the article, only their souls can travel here. When they were asleep, their souls leave their bodies and started wandering here. But not all people could travel in here, only a few of them.It was also actually written in our history, but as time passes by, they have forgotten about it, because no one has experienced such circumstances like it after a hundred years.
Chapter 7: Zon's Perspective I took a deep breath and went closer to her, "You came back?" I said but I guessed, she didn't hear me."I didn't expect that you can actually go back..." I hesitated when I saw her eyes, it's swollen, and she was still tearing up, and she wiped it secretly. And then I noticed some bruises on her arms, I looked at her, and then she rapidly hid her hands at her back. I wonder what happened to her? I thought as I stared at her."Are you okay?" I asked as I looked at her eyes again, to examine her emotion, but what happened next was something so unprecedented for me, my heart twisted promptly, because of her eyes; her eyes implied too much suffering, I could feel it, her emotions and her pain, they were deep, but why? "Who are you?" My mind whispered. What's happening to her in their world? And it made me crazy once again, she was absolutely mysterious.But then,
CHAPTER 8: ZON'S PERSPECTIVE- A few weeks later-Cassy came back while I was busy with my research."How was your research?" Cassy asked, and I frowned as I shook my head, for I found nothing after a month! Yeah, as in no information about them.She went near me and sat on the floor, "That's okay! We can found it soon," she smiled, and her blue eyes shine again. Those eyes again, it's so pretty."Gosh! What am I up to?!" I thought, and blaming her eyes!Well, yeah we've been seeing each other for almost more than a month, but not daily because we didn't know when could she appeared, here again, that's the problem. ******* A weeks ago ******I waited at my secret room every day, waiting for her to come bec
Chapter 9: Cassy's PerspectiveIt was a cold rainy night, and what I and that guy, named Zon's situation was really amazing, we were meeting to found out about two worlds, his world and of course, my own world, but I couldn't find anything.How amazing, wasn't it? The things you thought were a dream, was actually real? Well, we must expect the unexpected. Who knows what else could we see in the future.Beep!I heard my phone rang and when I saw it, it was Drake. I opened his message and honestly, it made me smile."Hey, how are your bruises? Next time be careful with your steps, I don't want to see you getting hurt, and how sad you did not wait for me! You went home early, however, it's fine, see you tomorrow!" He texted with a smiling emoji's every sentence from his message.Actually, I lied, my bruises were because of Berna, but I didn't want to tell him
