“It will not be a problem, my dear, I lack anything but the money” sounds behind me. and I stiffen at the roughness of the voice. My back is facing the man who is talking I wonder who he is. When I was contemplating the answers, I see Susan’s eyes lit up when her eyes land on the man behind me. Jack is also smiling at him.
“Brother!!” Susan squills crossing by me and jump in the man’s arms. When I turn around to see who it was, I see her pouting at the man like a little child. Was she the same girl that made me have a heart attack a few minutes ago? Jack is shaking his head laughing at her tactics. He knows something I don’t, And I stand there like an idiot trying to figure out what is going on here.
The boy, I mean Susan’s brother looks handsome. He has a blue eye which draws me to him immediately. There is a cut on his eyebrow giving him a dangerous look. A smirk sitting on his lips, Sharp nose. His well-built body can
She cheered because I agreed to her request. Even though I felt like I was a burden to them, I was glad they didn’t think like that of me. and now I don’t need to worry about my lunch, I can eat healthy food for few days. Susan grabs my hand pulling me towards the cafeteria door, and I let her since I agreed to have lunch with her.“You know I can walk by myself. you don’t need to drag me know I won’t escape from here” I chuckle teasing her.“Shut up and come with me, I'll finally get have a lunch with you, I was looking forward to it from yesterday itself and I’m also excited to introduce you to my friends” she is talking about what she is planning looking forward without turning back to see us.“Your friends? Like YOUR FRIENDS? the popular’s group friends?” I stop deadpan in my tracks and she tries to tug me forward but she doesn’t use touch force so stay there itself and when she tu
When I come back to my sense, we are already near the table filled with her hyper friends. Commonly all the tables are round and have four to five chairs to sit in groups. But Susan and he friends had managed to convince the faculty and had a long table at the corner of the cafeteria which can fit more than twenty people at one go. And it still is not enough for them they add extra chairs from here and there if they all can’t sit together.It must be our luck or because we wasted the time arguing about my lunch most of them had finished their lunch and left for their next class. There are only eight members are sitting and most of the chairs are empty. They are all involved in a conversation. I see Jack running to the table and sits beside a boy and starts to gobble the food on his plate hungrily. Everybody makes fun of him for his eating style. I and Susan approach the table shortly and Susan sits next to Jack and I sit beside her. And Ron goes and sits at the end of t
The table quiet down when she finished speaking. I could see the mocking smile on Tina's face. She was enjoying it a lot and it was clearly visible to whoever knew her well. She was rubbing her fingers with excitement under the table even though her face masked those feelings well.The table was too silent for my bad and my mind started to wander at the dangerous area, deep fears buried inside my head start to come up. The fear of losing, fear of rejection, fear of being left alone in this world.I have always been alone in this cruel world surviving on my own. And darkness surrounding me is so thick and cold but the warmth I felt from my friends, Riya, Jack, Susan including acceptance from Ron had made a crack in the dark shell I have locked myself in. And a ray of light finally penetratedfrom it to fill my life with little happiness. And now it will be gone I'll be left all alone in this world again, to live in the darkness. I was so indulged in my sor
Maybe she doesn’t notice that she slipped her faced of acting like a concerned sister when she hears that someone was willing to spend their money for me.“Why are you paying for her food?” Tina crosses her hand in front of her. Sitting back comfortably her chin up in the air, she looks like an arrogant boss of a gang who has a say in everything others do.“And why can’t I pay for my friend’s food?” Susan asked Mockery in her voice and a smirk on her face.“Who wants to be her friend, she is just a B*tc-” she stops mid-sentence. Finally, she comes to know that she has exposed her real face in front of them. She looks at Susan as if she has seen the ghost. A victory smile forms on Susan’s face. I turn to see what exactly is she up to, wasn’t she angry at me. I see from the corner of my eyes not only Susan but others also have a smile n their face. What’s so funny about their talk is that ever
Ron and Susan are from the Wilson family. Everybody except me and Tina was calm because they all know about it beforehand. I wonder what others family background is, they must be from very big families if they hang out with Ron and Susan. Is Jack also from a reputed family? If they are from the Wilson family why are they working in the hotel. They can easily get whatever amount of money they want from their parents.Wilson's family are business tycoons and have a merger with Ford industries. There is a rumor that they both are related to each other with a very close keen. And both of their family have hidden so well they barely come in contact with common folks. Nobody knows how they look even if they pass by you as they concealed themself so well. I'm I been lucky that I get to see both Mr. Ford and heirs of the Wilson family back to back.Whatever it is and whoever they are, they treated me well, Stood up to me when I was bullied and insulted in the public. so I'll b
"There is nothing on your face, it's your eyes" Madison a boy with spectacle informed me when I start to search my face."My eyes?" My hands cover my eyes rubbing them to remove any spread of mascara "is it my eye mascara? Did it spread around? Am I looking so hideous? oh god now I understand why you were looking at me like you saw a ghost""It's not that," Vanessa a bubbly girl in front of me tells me."It's not that? then what is it? why are you all looking at me like that?""See for yourself" Susan hand me her cellphone opening the camera switching it to the selfie mood. I take it from her with doubt but I don't look at it, are they playing a prank with me. What if my eyes are okay and they all are acting to make a fool."Oh please I'm not falling for your stupid prank, You can't fool me with this stupid act of yours" I smile at them placing the cellphone back on the table, I make sure it is facing down."Common don't act smart, Why
They all made a new group leaving me alone at this table and started to talk with each other in a hushed voice. in between their discussion, they lift their eyes and stare at me like I'm a monkey sitting here for their entertainment for few seconds and again starts to discuss like they have found a new topic just by looking at me. It's frustrating sitting here doing nothing and being a topic of their conversation.It's not like I was never been a topic of discussion but every time it happened I knew what they were talking about and what exactly had happened with me. But now I know they are talking about my eyes but I don't know why it is like that but they know the reason. It is happing to me so I should know the reason first, not them. And my curiosity is killing me.It's not like I didn't try to listen to their conversation. In the beginning, they were sitting at this table only and because of my curiosity I tried to hear their Discourse and theories about my eyes bu
Riya was standing at the entrance waiting for us. we approach her smiling and she looks at me curiously. I raise my head to give her a full view of my face and she gasps with wide eyes.“Oh God, your eyes are gold and glowing like a torch” Her hand moved to touch at the edge of my eyes lightly caressing my skin “I thought she was exaggerating when she called me” I smile at her. She looks at me gapping for a minute and holds my hand drags me with her to the hotel and enters her office with me.Others follow us to enter the room but just when they were about to enter the office Riya turns around and lifts her hand to stop them. "Give us few minutes I need to talk to her, I'll call you in when we finish" and everybody nods at her and backs away as Riya closes the door.She sighs as she turns to me "Why?" she askes."???..." I look at her confused.She pinches between her eyebrows, she must be getting a headache now but he
