“How dare you, bitch!” I cringed when Chase slapped me, and trust me, that has to be the biggest mistake he ever made in his life. How could he even raise his hand on me?
“Fuck! You shouldn’t really have done that, Chase… you shouldn’t have,” I shook my head as I pushed him roughly, and he staggered back, but quickly maintained his balance.
“Did you just push me?” he raised his eyebrows in shock.
“You better expect the worse, because that is not all I’m going to do to you,” I uttered before I grabbed his shirt by the collar, slamming him hard against the wall, and I heard gasps from the students. I knew I was making a mess, touching him, but this bastard really needed someone to fucking teach him a lesson, and I’m going to fucking do that, regardless of the outcome of my action later.
“Get your hands off me!” he yelled at the top of his voice as he pushed me back roughly until I fell on my butt, and realization dawned on me that I was right in front of the remaining four members who didn’t even look like this was a big deal.
I tried to stand up and fight him, but something landed on my face. Someone just threw a hamburger at me. That was all it took for the others to join them in throwing their food at me. Tears brimmed in my eyes, not because I was weak, but because I was in rage. Yes, I really wanted to fight back, I couldn’t take the pain anymore, but what if I was expelled from the school? Where the heck will I go from here, especially knowing that no school will ever admit me ever again? With all these going on in my mind, I found the reason to endure the pain.
“How dare you push Chase like that?”
“You are just a pauper that doesn’t even deserve to be here. You don’t belong here, so why don’t you just leave?”
“Die, pauper. Die!” the students kept throwing their food at me, while I sat on the floor and stared into space. Yes, I wanted to break down in tears, I wanted to scream at them to stop, but that was only going to make me look weak, that will never stop anything even though I decided to do that. They were never going to change their mind from bullying me. I thought handling this was never going to be a problem for me, but turned out that I was mistaken. I was torn between fighting for myself to get my freedom and enduring the pain if I wanted to stay here.
As he squatted in front of me and stared at me, all I felt was disgust and hatred. I wanted to pounce on him, but I was handicapped.
“One week… You have only one week to leave the school, and if by then you are still hesitating, trust me, you won't like what will happen,” he threatened me, and I gulped down the lump that formed in my throat. I knew that he really meant business, and trust me, I couldn’t deny being scared of what will happen if I ended up getting thrown out of the school.
“You won't want to mess with me, Charity… No school will ever accept you in LA if I throw you out myself,” he smirked at me, emphasizing his last words, which scared the guts out of me.
I watched as he stood up to his feet and strode out of the canteen with the other boys, while I sat on the cold floor, staring at them until they were out of my sight.
“Are you ok? Come on, let me help you up,” I raised my gaze to find Enny looking at me sadly.
“Yes, I’m fine,” I smiled at her as I managed to stand up to my feet, and droplets of water fell from my body, which I ignored. Showing these bastards that I was hurt, was the last thing I was going to do.
“I will go to the washroom to clean the mess up. Can you help me get some snacks so I can eat when I get back to the class?” I asked her, and she quickly nodded her head. I gave her some money before I left for the washroom. The students I ran into on my way to the washroom kept glaring at me in disgust, some of them were covering their noses as I walked past them, but that wasn’t really my problem for now. I just wanted to clean up this mess.
I finally arrived at the washroom later, and I stripped out of my uniform when I was sure that I was the only one inside. Of course, I locked the door, so someone won't barge in on me naked. I had a quick bath after I was done washing off the dirt in my uniform, and I wore them afterward, even though they were not yet dried.
I was finally done, and I turned to leave for my class since I was already getting late, and the lunch break must've been over by now, but I realized that the door was locked from outside when I wanted to open it.
“Not again, please,” I groaned as I took a breath breath. Of course, I knew that it was the handwork of the students.
“Is anybody there?” I banged on the door as if they will even answer me even though someone was really outside.
“Open the door, please!” I banged the door for the second time, with the hope of getting attention. I was already getting choked by the awful smell of soap here, since I was allergic to soap smell.
“Is anybody there, please? Please open the door!” I banged the door hard for the umpteenth time. The light suddenly went off, and fear gripped me. I am nyctophobic, and can't even stand the sight of darkness.
“Please open the door… It’s scary here,” I felt my cheeks wet as I banged on the door. My heart was already beating fast, my body was trembling fearfully, and I could feel the hair at the back of my neck almost standing. My legs wobbled on the floor, so I crashed against the wall to stop myself from falling to the ground. This had to be the cruelest thing I have ever experienced in my life. These students were demons, heartless ones at that.
I wasn’t with my phone, and even if I was, I didn’t even know who I was going to call to come to my aid. I spent twenty minutes in the washroom, wallowing in fear, until I heard the clicking sounds of keys from outside. I wanted to stand up to my feet, but my legs were weak and couldn't even carry me anymore.
The door finally opened, and the least expected person walked in. It was Knoxville Brooklyn… one of the members of The K5...
Chapter 6 Charity POV My day in school was rough yesterday, and I finally got to know how toxic those bastards are. Yes, I so much wanted to show my identity and fight back, I wanted to show who I am, I wanted to make them pay for doing that to me, but I couldn't. I was handicapped in this situation and there was nothing I could do about it. Standing in front of the mirror yet again and all ready for school, I was scared. Scared of what those toxic bullies had in store for me when I get to the school later, but still, I had to go, right? I took a deep breath and picked up my backpack from the bed where I kept it earlier, leaving for school afterward. Standing at the side of the road minutes later and waiting for a cab, I couldn't get one, so I decided to trek to the bus stop and take the bus from there. "Hey, Cha Cha," I heard Enny's familiar voice, so I stopped and turned to find her scurrying over to me. I pulled a puzzled look. "What are you doing here?" I asked her, creasing
Chapter 7Charity POVI tossed on the bed for the umpteenth time and squeezed my face when I heard my stomach grumble hungrily. Now I regret leaving the school earlier. At least I would've gotten the chance to have a free meal there if I hadn't left earlier. What was I going to eat now that I came home? With the little strength left in me, I dragged myself from the bed and headed to the kitchen hoping to find something I could eat to give me strength, but I was met with an empty kitchen and I felt like crying my eyes out."Not now, please. I don't have a dime on me," I whined, facepalming myself frustratingly. I have spent my savings on my rent and I was left to starve now."I am an ulcer patient, please," I whined, almost in tears."When were you diagnosed with an ulcer?" My subconscious mind asked me, and I sighed before I walked back into my room and crashed against the bed.My phone beeped, and when I checked it, I sighed and shook my head. The video of me teaching that bitch a l
Chapter 8Chase POVI scoffed after I watched the video from yesterday for the second time again this morning. The new commoner is pretty interesting. I thought I should throw her out of the school before, but fuck it. I won't ever do that. I had something in store for her this time.My phone beeped, and a text from Mom popped on the screen.'Are you dropping by to have breakfast before you leave for school? I already made something for all of you' I scoffed when I read the text. Going to the mansion to see her was the last thing on my mind, knowing that will frustrate the living soul out of me. I didn't have the energy for her nagging.'No, Mom. Knox already made breakfast, so we will eat here before leaving for school' I replied to her text, and as if she was waiting to get my reply, her message popped up on the screen again.'You are going to kill Knox. Do you all ever do stuff for yourselves? Anyway, don't you dare skip class today if you don't want me to go crazy' I rolled my eye
Chapter 9Charity POV"You have to expel that girl from the school. Do you know the damage she caused to my child?" I heard a feminine voice from the principal's office, and I needed not to be told that she would definitely be Xee's Mom. If only my Mom was alive, she would've been here for me."I'm sorry, ma'am...""Do you know how much I paid to get my girl here? Do you know how much I'm paying every damn semester? I've been supporting this school, and if one girl that got here through scholarship would be a problem to my daughter and the school can't do anything, then I would have to transfer my daughter from here," I heard the woman arguing with the principal, and I couldn't fight back the tears that threatened to leave my eyes as I allowed them to fall freely down my cheeks. "She will be expelled, Mrs. Stewart," my heart dropped when I heard the principal's voice, and I knew that it was really over for me this time. After I was expelled from here, I wouldn't ever be admitted into
Chapter 10Mason AndrewsStanding in front of the mirror in the restroom, I felt nervous as I stared at my reflection. Dipping my hand into my inner pocket, I brought out the jewelry box I hid neatly there, and opening it, it revealed the diamond ring laying neatly inside. I was finally going to propose to my girlfriend after a few years of being together now."Be confident, Mason. Be confident," I whispered to myself, trying to stop myself from being nervous, but I couldn't. Once I was calm, I headed back into the restaurant where we were both having a date."I'm sorry that took much time. I felt really pressed," I apologized to her when I got to our seats, and she nodded her head. Melissa Joel was the prettiest woman I've ever seen all my life. She was the woman that stole my heart at first sight three years ago, and all I ever wanted was to spend the rest of my life with her. She was the definition of perfection. Sexy curvy body, long raven hair, smooth skin, 5'5 ft tall, had a pair
Chapter 11Charity POVSince going home wasn't an option for me at the moment, I headed to the park where I will be able to clear my head and maybe go home later. As I walked to the Park, people kept throwing glances at me and some of them were making comments because of how horrible I looked. I should wash myself and change my clothes, but I couldn't even think of that.'How does it feel? I told you to leave yourself' Those words replay in my head over and over again, how they were throwing insults at me, how they bullied me. Just the thought of it made me want to stop existing. For the first time in my whole years of existence, I was bullied and I couldn't even fight back, for the first time, they made me feel like a weakling, I couldn't fight for myself, and it felt so horrible."Is it my fault that I'm poor? Is it my fault that I was born like this? You wealthy people are horrible and disgusting," I yelled at the top of my voice as I stopped at the side of the road to catch my bre
Chapter 12Charity POV Following the address whoever the person was sent to me, I scoffed when I got to the penthouse and found out that it was Chase I was going to meet. When I arrived, one of the several guards led me into the spacious living room, and as much as I wanted to take my time to admire the beauty of the penthouse, knowing that this was my enemy's house, I knew better to comport myself.He soon came to the living room, dressed casually, and I wondered if he didn't go to school today, but that wasn't supposed to be my problem, right?"You came? I didn't think you would show up," he uttered, sitting on the couch and crossing his legs, and I scoffed."If I knew you were the one that called me, I wouldn't have come down here. So, don't waste my time and go straight to the point. What do you want from me this time?" I asked rudely, looking down at him as I was standing on my feet."Come, you should take a seat. We aren't fighting, are we?" He sounded sarcastic and it was anno
Chapter 13Charity POVIt was a tough decision to make, but I didn't have any choice at this point. Waking up this morning, I had my bath and got ready for school. I have made up my mind to go plead with Xee to talk her Mom out of withdrawing her command to expel me from the school. This was going to be another way for them to bully me again, but I would endure whatever I had to until I leave the school. I have made up my mind to be the weak girl they wanted me to be, the girl they will bully and won't fight back. If that was the only thing it would take me, I would make the sacrifice.The cab I boarded soon got to the usual spot where he drops all the time, I headed to the school gate. Standing in front of the school gate, I stopped to ask myself if what I was doing was right, but then, I didn't have any choice.Taking a deep breath, I finally walked into the school compound and walked slowly toward the verandah. I could feel every students' gaze on me as they whispered. I could hear
