I groan, shifting on my bed, pulling my pillow on top of my head, covering my ears.
The sound of an alarm is killing my head. With my left hand, I search for the source of the sound. When I get my hand on that, I turn it off.
I was up till late-night to complete the assignment, and tomorrow was the last day to submit it to the professor.
When I get down from the bed, The wood creeks under my foot. Stretching my body, I get up from the bed.
It's still 5 in the morning. I could only get four hours of sleep. I need to do all the house chores before going to college. Otherwise, my aunt will kill me.
My father and mother died in a car accident, and my custody fell in my aunt's hand. That's when my life became hell.
I don't remember much about my mom and dad. I was too young to remember anything at that time. But I know for sure they loved me so much.
My aunt Linda Martin is my mom's only sister. I don't know why she hates my mom to the core. And her daughter Tina Martin has taken a contract to make my life a living hell.
And my uncle, what should I say? He has no say in this house. He does the only thing in-home: watching TV, eating, and listening to my aunt's commands. I'm just glad that he doesn't care about my matters or me.
So, it's both mother and daughter that always nit-pick on anything I do. Make me do all the housework, cleaning, cooking, washing clothes, pressing cloths, etc., etc., etc.
I rush to the bathroom to get freshen up. My bathroom door opens with a sound when I push it. Entering, I sigh when I see myself in the mirror with my sleepy eyes.
I look like a ghost, with dark circles under my eyes. My hair looks like a bird's nest. Any bird can come and start living in my hair. My pale skin doesn't help either. People will think I'm a zombie or something if I go out like this.
Oh god, what wrong did I do to deserve this torment? I sigh once again, applying toothpaste to my brush. Washing my mouth, I hop into my shower, take a quick bath and leave the bathroom.
With a towel wrapped around my thin body, I start looking in my wardrobe for my clothes. All my clothes were given to me when Tina got tired of her clothes, and she didn't want to wear old ones.
I search for something which will make me less noticeable to people. To keep a low profile avoid any problems, this is the best way. I take a simple white T-shirt and blue jeans to wear to the college with this thought.
I brush my hair to remove all the knots, leaving them free. I look in the mirror, applying concealer to hide the dark circles around my eyes.
I have my mom's blue eyes my dad's button nose, I don't have plump lips, but they are not too thin either. They are perfect for my face.
I know I'm not a beauty. Having a familiar face that people will forget after a few days is advantageous for me, who wants to live in shadows.
I look at the clock; it's already six. I'm late to make breakfast, so I hurry up to start my day.
I look at myself one more time and at my parents' photo on my dressing table. They are both smiling at me. Smiling, I close the door of my room, expecting today will be a good day. I move to the kitchen.
When I reach the hallway, I see Tina sitting on the sofa with a face mask on her face. She is watching some teen movies on TV.
Trying to make my way to the kitchen not to make any noise, but she notices me when I'm just about to reach the kitchen counter.
"What are to doing? Walking like a thief," she comments, turning to face me.
"Nothing. Just here to make breakfast before leaving to college," I inform Tina while searching what is there in the refrigerator to make breakfast.
She snickers at me, "don't make it too oily, I don't want to have pimples on my face" she turns back to watch TV.
Sighing, I take out Carrots, tomatoes, corn, onion, and capsicum from the freezer.
I put two tp of oil into a pan, then add finely chopped onions, corn, capsicum, carrot, and fry them till they are half-cooked yet crunchy. Adding Spinach, salt, herbs, and pepper to the fry gives a good mix.
Taking two pieces of bread, I apply Sauce to one of them and then spread the stuffing evenly on the bread. I grate some cheese over the filling. Cover another slice of bread, then toast it on the pan by spreading butter on both sides to make it crispy.
Repeating this, I prepare three plates of veg sandwich for all of them.
Picking up my bag from the floor to get ready to leave the house to reach college. I have placed the prepared dishes on the dining table, I cleaned my hands. I look at the sofa. Tina is not there. Maybe she went to get ready for college as well.
So, I yell, "the breakfast is on the table; I'm leaving for college" I turn to leave.
"Why are you leaving so early?" aunt Linda comes out from her room.
I turn to face my Aunt "because I have to walk to the college so" I raise an eyebrow at her.
She scoffs, "but it's still 7. 30; what are you doing behind our back? going so early to hook up with guys?"
"Listen, Eliza, you may want to do as you please, but you are staying in my house, don't act like a whore just like your mother."
"How dare you bad mouth about my mom?" I glare at her. "She is your own sister- how could you..." tears well up in my eyes, but I don't cry. I'll never cry Infront of them.
"You can say anything about me, don't you dare say anything bad about my mother" I point the finger at her, anger well up in my stomach. I clench my hand at my side to control my emotions.
"Otherwise, what will you do? Bitch know where you are standing before you talk," she laughs.
I can't do anything about her, and she knows it. I can't leave before I turn 18, and she takes advantage of it to torment me mentally.
I decide I'll repay everything, every pain they give me, I'll get back to them when I become independent.
When I can support myself, I'll defiantly repay everything, thinking that I glare at her. She smirks at me.
I turn around and head out of the house, tears falling freely from my eyes now that nobody is there to watch.
I run at high speed to vent my anger, and I run until I can't run anymore.
Gasping for air, I stop placing my hands on my knees and take a deep breath. When I can control my breathing, I get up to see my college right before my eyes at the end of the road.
I enter the college, it’s still too early for the college. I see no soul on the campus on my way. I feel grateful that I left early. I open my locker, where my bag and belongings are kept. My class schedule is stuck on the inside of the locker door. I look at my schedule; my first class is English literature. I searched for my assignment, which I worked all night to finish. Taking that, I go look for the professor’s offices. My luck office is open. I enter and place my assignment on the table, then move out of the office, closing the door. Students start to arrive, so I enter my class. I always sit at the back in my class at the corner seat so that nobody will notice me and pick on me. I make my way towards my seat, but someone doesn’t want me to have a peaceful life. “Hey, freak, did you do my assignment?” David comes my way. He is the son of one of the richest men in the city and Tina’s boyfriend. Both he and Tina nev
Christian's POV "Mr. Ford, it's a pleasure to meet you. I always admired you," a person approached me "you are a role model for the younger generations for being a successful businessman at a young age ." I Shift my eyes to the person talking, "Mr. Steel, I'm honed." Mr. Steel is one of the best friends of my grandfathers. He just nods his head. "Are u planning to shift to the city? Or you'll also stay there only in the woods". I get stiff at the question, shaking my head. "No, I'll stay with my family in the woods only." "I don't get your family sometimes. What's there in there that you guys never come and leave in the city". I just smile at him. "I'll come back in a few minutes" I go towards the balcony to get fresh air. It's the full moon today. I didn't take my medicine. Well, it slipped from my mind totally. What should I do? I'll just return to my mansion then take my medication. No, I can't leave now. Party is still half
Christian's Point of View, Her face was scarlet red, she was taking long breaths, her eyes were clouded; I think she couldn't focus on anything at this time. It looked like she was struggling to keep herself sane at this time. She looked like someone who was drugged. I don't know why anger well up in my stomach seeing her suffering like this. I think it's my people who did it. I'll definitely punish whoever did this to her. How could they drug someone to deliver a person to me? The thought it may not be my people who sent her here never came to my mind. Since she was at my door, I concluded that she was here for me. She stared at me for some time then started to struggle against my bare body. Did this girl know what she is doing now and how it affects me? It was the thought running in my head currently. I looked down at her when there was no movement. She had gone to sleep. She struggled for some time, then gone still i
Her blood tasted so sweet I had a feeling like I was drinking a glass of wine. Instead of taking a small amount of blood, I just drank without thinking. The girl's face was becoming pale with a loss of blood. When I thrust hard into her, she cried and bit my shoulder so hard. I could sense that my skin tore, and blood came out from there when she bit. When I spilled into her, she took a long breath and slumped on the bed, licking her lips with my blood on them. When I saw that, my eyes went wild. She tasted my blood, M-My blood… and I took her blood at that same time…Shit...We... We…we consumed blood from each other at the same time. We are mated now. What should I do? This wasn't supposed to happen. I screamed in my head. Now she is my mate. But she is human, and vamps only have one mate for their life, and because she took my blood and I took hers simultaneously, we got mated. We have bonded with each other al
Elizabeth's POV When I get up, I look around to find myself in an unfamiliar bed. It's still a little dark outside, and I don't get it at first. I slowly start to move my body to get up. I yelp at the pain in my lower body. That's when it clicked. My eyes widen at the realization. I look down to my body to see if anything is wrong, Praying it's all a dream, but the reality is a b*tch. Last night Tina and her friends drugged me. WHY… covering my face with my hands, I cry. I don't know how long I sobbed. When I stop and braise myself, I lift my face to look at my surrounding. I see my body covered in bruises and bites, questioning my life. This room is quite large compared to other rooms you have been assigned to clean and check on. The large bed covers a large part of the room, leaving both sides to walk around freely. There is a couch just in the front of the room. The floor is covered with carpet. It's
I stare at the place for a few seconds as my eyes widen at what I see there. A beautiful mark of the full moon sits, half-covered with Gray clouds, and a bat is flying around it. Did I get a tattoo yesterday? It is the thought that crosses my mind. How did this mark come on my neck? I run my fingers on the mark shiver runs through my body. I kind of like it there. It feels like it belongs there on my body. With all the questions and debates running through my mind, I get ready for college. I try not to make any noise; I had enough of their bullshit yesterday night. I don't want to listen to the same today as well. So, I prepare a simple breakfast and arrange the table for the family. Without any concerns, I slip out of the house. When I reached the college, It was still early. I collected my things from the locker for the first class. I make my way to my classroom. It was empty, and because I came so early for the course and I
When those words leave his mouth, the class gets Pindrop silent. I know it's normal for girls to lose their virginity so early, but it's not okay to exhibit it to the whole city. We have a reputation to maintain, and people are a little old-fashioned in this small city. Their mindset is not as open as people living in big cities. And people are a little conservative and suspicious of anything new. Our city is so tiny that it is unmapped on the country map. It's like a group of people arrived here and cleared a small part of the forest to construct houses and make a living in them. Everybody knows everyone in this city. And everybody will know that I lost my virginity before turning 18, before my marriage. And it will be taboo in everybody's eyes. I'll be a shameless person now in their eyes. And what comes after that is a judgemental eye every time I leave the house. If this incident is known by my manager at work, I will have
I wanted to yell at her for what she did to me. How can she have the face to say it was me sleeping around the town for fun to lose count of the men I slept with. Is she sane? "It was all you and your…." "Okay, what's going on here?" professors voice cut my argument, and the whole class became silent. "Nothing, sir, just a health argument between us sisters," Tina replayed, eyeing me to keep my mouth shut. "Whatever she said," I replayed, making my way towards my chair. Everyone parted with a look of disgust when I moved near them like I was a plague. Even if the professor noticed, I'm glad he did not comment on that. What would his reaction be if he knew the situation? Well, he will know about it by the end of the day. My seat was near the window. I started looking outside, not interested in listening to whatever the professor said. My class is situated on the third floor, and I can get a pretty view of the forest behi
