It had been a week since Lola and I became closer. After that conversation.
We went out together and rumours of us being friends were buzzing around the internet.
It was such a shame that Lola would be heartbroken in a few months and I wouldn't even be able to console her.
I didn't know she was this easy to manipulate. Why would she think I would want to be friends with her despite what her useless father did to my mom.
I didn't tell mom about my plan because she wouldn't understand. I knew I wouldn't be able to hide it for long but I was ready to face the consequences later.
Meanwhile, Jade reunited with her boyfriend and family and she decided to book an appointment to fix her ear next week Wednesday.
I was really happy for her, her life was getting back on track.
Whilst scrolling through my phone in my room, I heard glasses shatter everywhere. The noise seemed to be coming from mom's room.
I sneaked into my house quickly and was about to get past the living room when the lights suddenly went on. Mom. I exhaled.“Where were you?” She asked seriously as she cut the apple into two with the knife in her hand.It hurt to admit but I was scared of the way she was holding the knife. What if she snaps again and..Flashback*I just got back from highschool and was really hungry. Thankfully, the nanny already prepared my favorite fried plantain and scrambled eggs. Then I remembered hearing sobs and glasses shattering in Mom's room."Mummy?!" I asked running straight to her room only to find her cutting her wrist with a knife."Mummy what are you doing stop! Why are you hurting yourself?" I asked tears in my eyes. But before I could blink she pushed me against the wall and pointed the knife aga
After Jadesola reunited with her family and boyfriend, she did her ear surgery and it was successful.That was the last time I heard of her.Pictures of her with old friends and her boyfriend were all over Instagram.I simply smiled, those people didn't even check on her when she was down and now she was okay again, they were all over her.I sighed and decided to do some shopping.Thank God mom wasn't home, I didn't want to deal with her after yesterday.I grabbed my car keys and headed out.Then all of a sudden I felt light-headed so I leaned against my car for support and when I felt well, I got in.I started my car and hit the road.I decided to go to the most expensive store not far from here. I passed by the Gallery.. I quickly remembered what happened with Romeo.Flashback*
‘Beautiful you remind me of the good memories when I could be myself without any fear of having flaws’I smile as the first few lines of the poem Esther brought for me. I was extremely grateful to it because somehow it reminded me of old times with my mom. When we weren't popular and could be ourselves anywhere.Somehow it reminded me of Romeo too, I was carefree with him maybe because of the wig on my head that made him not recognize me. I liked the fact that I didn't have to fake anything around him. He definitely brought out a better part of me.I grabbed my diary and decided to write my thoughts.I asked Esther to buy me a diary earlier today and she did without hesitation. She was a very kind hearted person and I was grateful to have met someone like her. I shouldn't have judged her wrongly when we first met at the beach. I was wrong to do that.‘Your smile
I accepted Lola's invite to travel to Jamaica with her and her family. Then I begged Stephanie to get me out of here.Because I knew mom would come here since I ignored all of her calls, I didn't want to talk to her yet.What I heard through the phone call shook me a lot.I couldn't help but think of how wonderful this world truly was.These three girls, Esther, Stephanie and Lola were now like friends and it bugged me because I had never made many friends like this before.I was confused.I'm supposed to hate Lola, but I couldn't.I needed a drink.“Hey! After much persuading, they decided to discharge you. Your mom paid the bills before now so let's go” Stephanie said and I shrugged.She helped me pack my things and instead of her to drop me at the hotel I told her to, she drove past it.“Stephanie! You passed th
I finally gathered some balls and went back home to have a decent conversation with mom after I'd park my things, of course.And yes I made a decision to go with Lola to Jamaica. There's no way I would give all of this up when I'm so close."Ola" Mom started."Mother" I say dully."I have a confession" she took a deep breath then looked me unsurely. I nod for her to continue and what i heard next shocked me."I've been with Rahul for over two years now"He was the man I met talking to mom on the day we were to receive our award.Flashback*"Hi Mom, good day sir" I greeted pecking my mom on the cheeks and strecthing my hand towards the man for an handshake. He was quite attractive. He shake my
Claudia SmithI am a murderer.I killed my own daughter because of my hatred for her father. I made myself motherless. I am a monster.I sobbed bitterly as I hit my head on the wall repeatedly. I don't deserve to live, no."Honey Stop!" Rahul says pulling me away from the wall to a chair across from us."She'll never forgive me" I cried on his shoulder. I HATE MYSELF. I HATE MYSELF.I suddenly ran out of the hospital to the roadside. My daughter is dead. I don't deserve to live."Claudia please don't do this to yourself. Your daughter is in there fighting for her life and there's a fifty percent chance she'll survive" I hear Rahul said behind me but that did nothing.That's how I lost my first child when the doctor said he had a fifty percent chance of surviving. He left me alo
ROMEO"Anna hasn't been picking any of my calls as of recent, it's unusual of her" I say to Theo, my best friend who keeps trying to convince me that Rose and Ola, the slutty celebrity were one person.I would never believe that. Never.Anna was a gold, I liked her while Ola was a spoiled brat. She even ruined a painting so dear to my heart and I disliked her for it."Bro Ola Smith got involved in a home accident and she got stabbed in the process, the chances of her surviving are very low" he said and I glared at him."Why are you telling me that?""Since when did you become so heartless? Ola Smith might die from internal bleeding and if she dies, Rose dies""Shut up!" I say running my hands through my hair. He was beginning to frustrate me. Rose and O
"Mom please don't! Help!" I cried as Mom approached me with a knife. She was about to stab me when I let out a piercing scream..Beep beep beepI opened my eyes and found myself in a strange room, thank God it was just a dream.I sat up on the bed, confused, and I instantly regretted it because it hurt like a bitch.I looked around me and tears filled my eyes. It wasn't a dream.Mom stabbed me.I look at my body as they were supported by wires and machines. I felt pain all over my body and I wished I died instead.The pain was just too much to handle.Death was way better than this.I suddenly felt very weak so I decided to sleep..***Beep beep beepI woke up only
