Chapter 5

Life isn't a bowl of cherries. It's no longer a secret if a second party knows.

"You twat, your mother is a whore." She abused. "I need to protect my boyfriend before she gets her tits all over his face with her legs in the air." She demonstrated in her short Jean skirt that showed her beautiful legs.

"That makes her a bitch right? Making you a bitchling, if there's anything like that." She added, her minions guffawed and sounded like hyenas to me.

I wish I could yank her hair out of her skull.

"You're just going to be like her." She said, making me to clench my fist and I remembered when I told Melanie about my mum weeks back.

Oh my God! Melanie was a traitor, how could she? After how much I trusted her.

Sophia slapped my books to the ground and walked out with her girls. I bent to pick them up and saw Melanie bending beside me to help.

"Bullying you again?" She asked as we stood up.

"Get away from me, you traitor!" I exclaimed and began to breathe really hard.

"Calm down, what happened?" She asked, placing her left hand on me.

"Get your filthy hand off me!" I pushed her away. "I can't believe you did this to me, you told them about my mum." I glared at her.

"Holy shit, I never told any one I swear!" She lied to me with those Amber eyes of hers.

"How dare you lie to me." I slapped her on her right cheek and watched it go red. I shook in anger, I felt hot blood running through my veins and I needed to hit something really hard.

I ran away from the school and really fast to the bus stop. I felt a lot of emotions whirling inside of me.

Where should I go?

I wanted to cry. No, I wanted to scream, hit things and maybe explode. I wish I could go some where far away from humans, away from planet earth.

I just-ugh! 

I didn't know, Maybe run off to Pluto then die of cold.

Who was I kidding?

I couldn't leave earth and all these beautiful creatures. By creatures, I meant the animals not the terrifying humans. Running to Pluto would be like me ditching my one true friend, mother nature.

Was I seriously thinking about running to Pluto? 

I walked into a bush and sat near a tree. I cried my eyes out. I screamed, picked up some dry leaves and threw them angrily on the floor. I muttered curses underneath my breath.

I was done crying now, but I just didn't feel satisfied yet. I stood to my feet and pondered about where to go. Where would I go? I couldn't go home like this. I mean, I looked like shit. My hair, my eyes I didn't want to be like this in front of Father. Oh, yeah, I forgot he was ok now and went to work today.

I walked to the bus stop and got on a bus that just halted in front of me. I plopped on the seat beside a young boy. I casted a disgusting look at him when he smiled at me. I mean, why was he smiling at me?  Shouldn't he be in school? 

Shouldn't you be in school too?

My mind asked me. Whatever!

Where do I go? I bit hard on my white nails.

Go to your mother's office and talk to her.  My mind suggested.

Why should I even do that? Okay, now I get it. I'd go there and tell her how I feel, how she made them humiliate me in front of maybe the whole of my grade or more. Exactly, I'd tell her why a woman with a loving man like my father shouldn't cheat.

What was I saying? I couldn't go there, not to her working place, I didn't want to create a scene. No, I'll just go there. I shook my legs profusely as I watched the shops we pass by.

"Hi," the boy beside me said almost in a whispering tone. I didn't answer, but squeezed the paper in my hand and gritted my teeth. He moved away from me, obviously scared.

I finally got off the bus and got a last view of the boys deep dimples and blues eyes that reminded me of the sea. I watched the bus zoom off. I pressed my hands on my face and took deep breaths before I finally walked into the building. "Keep calm coco." I whispered to my self.

I was finally in front of my mothers office, but I didn't see any sign of her through the transparent glass. "Oh God." I closed my eyes tight. "Where could she-" I got cut off by mother's colleague, Mr Robert, who was standing behind me.

"Nicole?" He said in a surprised tune. Of course he was. I mean, I should be in school, in class learning something that I guess would make me a better person in future.

"Uh Nicole." He reached for my left shoulder, but I shoved it off.

"Mr Robert, do you by any chance know where my mum is?" I asked.

"Uhm, I should be the one asking the questions here." He widened his grey eyes and nodded his head.

"Uhm," I said, unsure of what else to say.

"Why aren't you in school?"

"I need to speak to my mum," I said, holding tight to the handle of my black backpack.

"What's the problem miss?"

"Nothing, where's my mum?"

"She went to represent us at a firm." He demonstrated with his hands. I didn't answer him, but walked out of the building quickly.

"Nicole, wait up!" He yelled and trailed up behind me. I continued walking.

Why the drama lady?

I stopped in my tracks and shut my eyes tight. I glanced over my shoulders and gave him the "what?" Look.

"Hey wait up, why are you out of school?"

"Nothing serious."

"Go back to school or go home," he said softly. I so do not want to go back to school, I can't face the humiliation in school.

"I can't go back to school, I can't,"

"Why? You had a fight or something?"

"You wouldn't understand." I sighed.

He scrunched his face up and asked what was up with me that he wouldn't understand. I just sighed in frustration. "I'll take the bus home." I turned to walk.

"Wait, let me give you a ride home." He said it more like a command.

I shook my head in dismay. "I said I'm taking you home," he said with authority and shoved his hands into his black pants.

I mean, who did he think he was, My father or the brother I never had? Any way, it'll be a free ride. So, yeah I'll just agree.

"Okay." I bit my lips and fidgeted with the hem on my black shirt. He walked back into the building to like maybe take an excuse or something.  I stood and sucked onto my down lips and waited for his arrival.

"Here." He showed me the way to follow. "Okay, here we are." He tapped the trunk of his car. He opened the door like a perfect gentleman and gestured for me to sit on the passengers seat.

I climbed into the car and fastened my seat belt. My eyes studied him as he got into the car. I looked at his perfectly carved side burns. "Checking me out again?" He smirked.

"Euw no!" I scrunched my face up and averted my gaze

The ride was not rough or too slow, it was kind of in between. There was an awkward silence, but I didn't care. I mean, I had a lot of things going through my mind now, I didn't have the time to think about what to say. Talking wasn't my thing.

"Nicole!" Mr Robert snapped me out of my trance. I was so deep in my thoughts that I didn't notice the car stopping in front of my house.

I stepped out of the car and wore my back pack. "No gratitude?" He corked up his eye brow.

"Thanks," I said dryly and walked into my house. Just as I slammed the door I realized Mr Robert was behind me. Meaning, I slammed the door at his face.

"Yes?" Puzzled, I opened the door.

"Gosh you're so rude, I'm coming in. I mean, you don't look so good," he said. I gave him no reply, but left the door open for him to come in.

I threw my backpack on the floor and went to find something to drink. I needed Mr Robert to leave me alone. What if mother came and saw him?

What if he had a weird interest in--No! I wouldn't think about disgusting things like that. I shoved the thought out of my head.

Should I be worried about how he was becoming warm?
