FRIENDSHIP AND HIDDEN SECRETS
I took a long stare at the memory wall where all the pictures of all the deceased pupils were hung to pay their respect. I walked toward Mesmick’s photo and placed down ‘Twinkie’ my sunflower near it then recycled a short prayer before leaving.
I suddenly spotted Apple standing near my classroom. I was sure she was looking for me as I quickly fixed myself then moved toward her.
CONFESSIONAND TEARSIsat on my bed with my legs crossed as I ran my eyes on Sorrow’s historytextbook. My eyes were now aching and everything I was reading was becomingblur. I finally dropped the textbook on my bed then reached my hand on my phonewhich on the drawer just beside me.Istared at Apple’s number for a minute before tapping on it. It started ringingbut no one picked it. Something was wrong, Apple never let her phone ring forthat long, let
PAINING HEARTS AND COLD HEARTSI sat on the benches in the waiting room with my hands trembling.“Siren!” yelled a familiar voice. I rapidly got up and spotted Jack who was a few steps away from me. Tears slid down my cheeks just after he hugged me as I tigh
AKIRA’S CONFESSIONI looked around the empty benches while I fiddle with the ticket on my hand. It was at the middle of the month alright but still I didn’t know that even in hospitals during these time people were few.“Number 33!” the lady on the third counter finally yelled out. GUNGOES MISSINGInervously rocked my body back and forward while I fiddle with my hands. Thefootsteps approaching me caught my ear.“Anythingto drink?” he asked.Ilooked up at Plot’s dark brown eyes as he took a drink on his beer still withhis eyes focused on

REVENGEI followed the running sound of water and whistle. His bulky back with a bull tattoo faced straight at the gun’s barrel.“You don’t want do this” were his first words.“Shut it and move” I ordered.“Can you at least let me get my clothes before killing me” he said.“Shut it and walk” I said firmly.He slowly walked down the small passage into the lounge with his hands up.“Stop” I ordered. “Now slowly turn around.”He did as he was told but as soon as our eyes met he let out a loud laughter.“Shut it or I’ll blow your brains!” I snapped still with the gun pointing at his head.At that instant my hands were trembling crazily.“Go home kid whatever you are trying to do isn’t going to happen” he said lowering his hands.I pulled the trigger shooting at the vase
ACCEPTING PAIN, THE TRUTH HURTSI stared at the ceiling drinking beer with the gun on my left hand. I slowly moved my head to my dresser. I stared at the few pictures which were still stuck on the mirror. My eyes shifted toward Jin’s one.“I got him brother” I said as I pointed the gun at the mirror. “Now you can rest.”For some reason I felt like killing, killing everyone who had caused me pain. Suddenly I had a knock from the front door. I rapidly got up as I hid the gun under the pillow and the half-filled beer underneath the bed then limped out.I opened the door half way with the chain lock on.“Jack” I said in surprise.“Your face” he said in shock. “What happened?”“I fell” I lied as I opened the chain lock letting him inside.“You fell?” he asked as he took a sit on the couch while turning on the television.
NUMBI sat on the washing machine as I gently ran my sharp lead pencil on the last page of my sketch book.“I can’t believe that Mr. Volt is really dead” my mother said out of the blue. “First it was Jack’s brother then it was that hag’s troublesome son then little Aki tried to kill himself now it’s Mr. Volt.I felt my body go tense as I tried to ignore her.“The worse part of this is that he was ambushed inside his apartment, imagine if the children were around or Mrs. Shem what could have happened to them?” she said giving me a glance.“Aren’t there any baskets to deliver today?” I asked in effort to change the subject.“Oh no daughter not today” she replied while handing a thin man his basket.Suddenly the door clicked open as my heart pounded faster.“Apple my child” my mother said out loud in joy. “A
FILLING THE VOID“Are you going to eat that food or you’ll keep torturing it like that?” my mother asked with her eyes on me.Plot cleared his throat then said, “Yesterday the police found a car just around the corner burnt and it’s believed two people were inside in fact they were locked inside then burnt to death”“Oh my god, who could be so evil to do such a thing?” my mother exclaimed.“My gun also went missing a day ago” added Plot.The spoon from my hand dropped inside the bowl as I pushed my chair back then got up.“I have to go finish my project with Apple” I lied as I headed for the front door.“Be back before dark!” she yelled just as I shut the door behind me.I walked down the crowded 33 street with my body feeling numb. I had just killed Sophie and Ten but I felt nothing. Was I losing emotions or what?The old door slowly slid open revealing the dirt inside the small room that had become my nightmare
