It's been two days since the fight I had with Monica and it's already the weekend too.
I tossed the ball up and down. I just wanted to keep moping around in my room.
Yesterday's drama kept coming back into my mind. "Aishhh!" I rubbed my hair.
The ringtone of my phone rang. Where the heck I put it?
Ah right. It's in my bag. As I get my phone from my bag, a folded paper fell from it.
It's the music sheet, Monica gave me.
I crumpled it up and throw it up in the trash bin. That's right. I make it clear that I should have nothing to do with her.
I slid up my phone to see mom's message that both her and dad will be late today due to a company meeting.
I replied back with 'Ok. Take care.' And threw the phone on my bed as I slumped my body there too.
Battle of the Bands. The first round of the preliminaries will be held on Monday already.
"Even if the world is against me, I will not give up on my dream."
"Damn!" I stand up and picked the piece of paper I threw and unscrambled it.I took a seat and read its contents. Not a bad song nor a great one too. I slumped back in my bed again, just staring at the ceiling.
"Never give up, huh?" How long since those words came to my mouth. It still left a sweet but bitter feeling.
Sleep should make me forget about it. it's not like I'll join her just because I read her song. I closed my eyes. But then someone loud entered my room. "Celene! It's already afternoon! I'm hungry." Clara shouted.
I just waved my hand to her. "There are foods on the ref. You could eat them." I said.
"No! I don't want those! I want fried nuggets!"
"We already ate one last night."
"But I still wanted to eat nuggets now! Please cook some for me." Clara walked closer to me as she tried to pull my arms. But I refused to stand up. Aishh. I just wanted to lie and sleep all day.
"Ask Nanny Mira. She could cook for you."
"Don't you forget? It's the weekend, she's on leave. Now cook some for me now. Please, please, please."
"Yey!" She jumped up and down before dashing out. "Call me once it has done!" She shouted.
*sigh* this kid. I grudgingly stood up then walked out the room down to the kitchen. When I reached the kitchen, I quickly brought out the nuggets. I should some for mine too. I brought out eggs, tomatoes, and onions too.
I started heating the pan. While waiting, I washed and started cutting the tomatoes and onions. Then I break and started beating the eggs in a bowl.
Afterward, the pan is already hot, and put the cooking oil. I fried first the nuggets. After I remove them from the pan. I put the onions and tomatoes next and when it is already a little bit brown, I put the scrambled eggs and started mixing them together.
After a few more minutes my owned omelet is finally done and finished.
I prepared the table and dishes. "Carla! It's time to eat!" I shouted. "Coming!" Carla came down running from the stairs towards our dining area.
"Hey! How many times do I have to tell you, stop running while you're on stairs."
"Yes. I'll remember that." She nodded her head with enthusiasm. "Let's eat!" After we said our little prayer of thanks for the meal. Carla started eating very fast.
"You little pig. Eat slowly, or you'll choke."
"Yesh. Big...Swiss." She nodded again and started to eat slowly.
"And don't talk when your mouth is full of food." I sigh. She nodded her head again and returned back to eating heartily. I started to eat too. Yum! I'm really such a great cook. Too bad, I'm too lazy to cooked every day. Well, Nanny Mira is not a bad cook either so it's not really a loss for me.
After we had our meal, I help Clara with her homework in the living room. And soon she started to fall asleep after we finished everything. I carried her back to her room and laid her on her bed. I then put the blanket on her. And just when I am going to leave, she grabbed my arm.
"Don't leave me, big sis. I'm scared." She said as she looked at me half-awake.
"Don't worry, I'll stay here until you wake up again."
She nodded her head and her eyes finally closed again. Soon her hold in my hand gradually lightens until she let it go. I sat on the floor near her bed. And lean my body to the side of the bed.
Now that she's completely asleep. Everything was very quiet now. "It's very quiet." Soon my eyelids became heavier and I too drifted to the dreamland.
I suddenly found myself above a cliff and just below me a waterfall is falling. And the small lake under it was very clear.
This place, why does it look familiar?
"You have an awful curse, Celene."
That voice. The voice sounds always solemn and calm. In all the world I reincarnated, I only know one person who has that voice. And this place, I finally remembered. It's my first reincarnation to a Wuxia world Xalen. And my fifth reincarnation.
As I turned around, there he was. He was wearing his usual long white Daoist attire and his long dark hair is flowing effortlessly in the wind. "Master."
I chuckled. "How am I cursed, master? I feel very fine." I lied.
His light emerald eyes looked at me seriously. "I don't know what cursed you have. But I could see clearly the balance of yin and yang around you is unstable. You'll suffer a lot. But remember to never give up and lose hope. Or else you will be completely consumed by that curse."
"Master. I don't know. But somehow I felt tired already."
"Remember that in every darkness, the light would always come. "
"But sometimes even light got absorbed to endless darkness master." I clenched my fist and looked down.
He looked at me and smiled sadly. "I hope you find the thing that will set you free from your curse, my disciple."
I don't even know what it is. Or how I even started reincarnating in the first place. I just woke up imprisoned in this endless cycle.
I bowed my head as I clasped both of my palms. "This disciple will remember Master's teachings."
A single tear fell from my cheek as I opened my eyes. Another memory again and it's in the form of a dream this time.
Why do I keep remembering things in this lifetime? Sigh.
"Curse huh?" Basically at this rate, I should also be an immortal right now but in another sense. *Sigh.* It's not like, I haven't tried anything to know what causes this reincarnation cycle. And in the end, the only thing I reached was dust.
I turned to check on Clara. She was still asleep. Since I can't sleep, I just played with my phone until mom and dad returned home.
It was already the morning of Sunday. Clara decided to go for a walk in the park. It's only a 2-kilometer walk from our house."Let's get going! Let's get going!" Clara pulled my hands to the front entrance of our house. Her voice was full of excitement."Mom and Dad! We're going!" I yelled."Be careful!" Dad was ecstatic."Remember to return before lunch!" Mom said."Yeah,"We noticed someone as we were leaving the house. Aunt Meliza is sweeping the streets, which are strewn with dry red flowers from the fire tree. Even though it's July, the fire trees are still blooming. She isn't connected by blood or anything. But we simply referred to her as an aunt. She is our next-door neighbor who lives with us since my parents are still young adults. So our family is already quite close with her."Good day, aunt!" Clara was thrilled
A perfect Sunday morning where there was no school, work, or anything to think of, was supposed to be the time you'll felt relax and have a good time rest.Well, only if you didn't have anything to rush for your deadline. And since the school year just started there was nothing much to do first. So life sucks if you still needed to do work on this beautiful day.And life sucks if you needed to deal with a lot of problem children in some random park.I took a deep breath. 'Here goes nothing.' "Carla, we will play something else ok?"They all turned to me at my sudden change of attitude. "Play? Yes!" Carla jumped up and down.The two problem children. Monica, Cylle looked at me with confusion. While Dylan's smile only grew as if something interesting was going to happen.I immediately pulled Carla's hands. "For our dear peace..." I dashed with
'"Sister! Wake up!" "I don't want to!" "Why do you always make things difficult for me?" "Because mom invites those people in dinner!" "Celestine Monte! Wake up!" My body stood up like it was being controlled by someone. My back was straight like those military shoulders. 'Mom called me in my full name. Hah. I'm sure in trouble. "Why are you always like this in school mornings?" Mom said as she leaned on the door of my room, her arms crossed. "Carla, go eat your breakfast now. I'll deal with your sister now." "Alright! Good luck Celene!" Carla said as she dashed out of the room. I sat back on my bed as mom moved closer to me. "Why do you hate so much that I invited them for dinner yesterday." "Because I don't like them," I replied with hon
"Hey!" I shouted which made the whole auditorium silent.The booes and the bashing of the students stopped as they all looked at me. 'Well since I decided to get involved, let me make this a blast that no one would ever forget! My eyes looked everywhere until they stopped in a certain direction.'Perfect.'"Hey..." The student council president wanted to say something to me more, but I didn't have time for her. On my mark, I ran towards the direction of the stage."Let me borrow this for now," I said as I grabbed a guitar from a random student.I jumped high above the railings then while in the air, I grabbed one of the cords to connect the guitar to the speaker. As I put the condenser on, I landed on the stage perfectl
