"Vaughn, stop, it's not funny" I said but I didn't bother to remove it, I have no strength.
"Come on, Avis, why are you silent? Do you need to go to the bathroom, don’t worry I can cover for you," he chuckled and let go of my face.
What surprises me is a big chocolate pouch drink on his other hand on the front of my face.
"Sweets can make you feel better when you have loose bowel movement," he told me and put the drink in both of my hands.
It made my heart warm and feels good. I clasped it with my own two hands, it made my feelings lighter than before. I just chuckled and tap him on his back, "Thank you."
I get the straw at back and put it at the designated hole in the pouch drink. Then we just sat on a bench. I didn’t notice we were on the school park in where vending drink machines are just around the area.
"You need to dry clean my handkerchief, it's full of snot" he smacked the handkerchief on my face.
I remove it and irritatingly smack it back on him, "I didn't even use it, you dumb."
"I used it because my hands were full of your snot." He projected a grossed face while showing me his hand.
"That's not my problem, who told you to put your hands on my face, weird guy."
"Because you are embarrassing me, you have snots streaming down and people were looking."
"IT'S NOT SNOT!" I slapped him on his back.
"It was," he just looked at me and smiled genuinely.
I stopped. This is the first time he smiles like I don't know what he is thinking, he smiles a lot to make fun of me or show his amusement. But now, it wasn't like that. He knows.
"Yes, it was snot." I sipped on my drink and lean back.
We just stayed silent for a while. We just sat there, looking around. The schools park is great; the school has a lot of areas, mainly for parking spaces, sports field, event field, park and etc. It was wide and great. I often go here with Tess to relax, while she sleeps on the benches. I like how everyone can stay under the shade of trees because a lot of them are planted everywhere, there were also birds staying at other trees. The breeze was much cooler and relaxing in here.
It makes me feel better now, with my surroundings, the chocolate drink, and Vaughn.
"So, do you still wanna go to the bathroom?" He chuckled.
I smacked him at the back.
After staying with Vaughn and I still have a vacant time, I received a call from Tess saying she was in the infirmary again. But not to sleep, she's been caught up in a fight.
I hurried back and saw that she has a bandage on her hand. A big one.
"What happened to you?" I ask.
"I live." she said casually.
I was bewildered, of course, I know my friend, Tess, is an A****n and she would never lose to anyone.
She's been my friend since we were 4th grader and I know her so well.
I basically consider her as my family and sister.
"You are not the type to lose, Tess." I told her.
"You've changed, you're getting weak." I teased her using a line from somewhere.
"I am not the type to lose, but not to some crazy mother fucker. I would not fight someone insane," she lay down on the bed and stretched.
"What do you mean?" I gasped. Insane?
"Apparently, Skylar's dog came here today. She's still insane about him."
Skylar's dog? Insane about him? This could only be one person.
Penny Winston. She's low-key violent when it comes to Skylar and is a big fan. She always posts him on a blog and always talks about him. Though I also follow the blog.
"Wasn't she's just in New York?" I asked. She was sent there by her parent’s maybe because she caused one harm to a student.
"Bruh, look at this, she stabbed me by a fork, isn't this proof she's back?"
"WHAT? SHE STABBED YOU?" I shouted.
"It's only a graze, that girl is dead ass scary. She really needs to admit to the hospital."
Penny Winston is actually a threat in this school and she must be reported, but wealth means power and they're family holds a big political role in the country and are far by one of the wealthiest family here.
"So, better don't get near to Skylar."
"You shouldn’t be." she looked at me seriously.
I gulped and nodded.
How can I go near? I had been rejected, Tess.
I waited for Tessa’s car to lose in my sight. I called her driver a little while ago so she can now go home. There is still a last class, which is 4 to 5 PM. She said she wanted to stay more and sleep in the library, but after my second to the last class. I insist she needs to go home. She doesn’t have a choice so.
I went back to classroom 15 minutes before the class starts. As I entered the door, I saw Vaughn sitting beside my seat. He is looking at me smiling like an idiot. He taps my seat gesturing me. That is Tessa’s seat if she was here now. I’m not in the mood to argue so I just let him do whatever he wants right now.
I lay my arms crossly on the table then set my head over there. My seat is beside the window, so I’m facing it right now. It is so quiet outside and inside. We have a quiz now, so all my classmates are reviewing their notes, expect for me and this guy beside me.
So, Penny Winston is back. I let out a sigh. She can now have Skylar all to herself.
Now that I thought about him again, I felt tears starting to form again. I’m mad at him for rejecting me even if I didn’t actually confessed to him, also because he is maybe the reason Penny is back. If she wasn’t back, my friend wouldn’t suffer. I get that Tess is an amazon girl and she is also fearless and a fighter, but she doesn’t deserve what happened. She doesn’t deserve the pain because, Penny is insane. And I…. I don’t deserve this pain given by Skylar because, I haven’t even confessed to him properly. That’s unfair. But, I’m not really confessing, since I was already rejected.Maybe that is the thing about liking someone for too long. Liking someone for too long doesn’t mean they have to like you back too. And maybe, Skylar is really insensitive, he just said ‘stop liking me’ casually. Like it was a line from a movie and he wanted to try it to someone, and then he chose me.Fr
“Grandma, can I ask a question?” I asked.“What is it darling?” she smiled at me then, held my hand.I looked at her.“In all of the stories you told me up until now that I’m close to a grown up woman, I’m 17 now, if you’re missing it grandma. So, why does the girl in your story always die?” I curiously asked.I wonder why the girl in her story named Avis like mine, always dies. The happenings in the story changes, but the ending is still the same, I’m getting pissed off by that. “Because, she always chooses to save him. She always wants to save him.” She answered as she caresses gently my hands.“That’s how love works; you get to experience sacrificing your own happiness or even own life for the sake of your love ones.” She continued.“Is she
Vaughn walks until he reached beside me. “What are you doing here?” I asked him. “That should be my question. It’s past 1 A.M. and you are still roaming around outside.” He said, concerned. Then, he looks at Skylar. “What are you planning to do this time, Skylar? He asked to Skylar. “Just like what you did earlier.” Skylar answered with a grin in his face. “Stop it. She’s innocent.” Says Vaughn as he glared to Skylar. “Really?” Skylar smirked then glanced at my side. “If you are talking about me, yes I’m innocent.” I said to Skylar and there is still his smirking face. “I don’t think so.” He answered. He looks like he is enjoying this conversation because he is smiling to annoy me and Vaughn. “What?” I exclaimed. “Why do you have the necklace?” he asked. And the smile in his face is now gone. “What necklace?” I asked back. Now that he mentioned it. I roam my hands around my neck to feel m
“That is hilarious! I wish I was there! Oh my god! I missed every exciting moments that happened to you!” commented by Tess. She’s so happy even that she was stabbed yesterday. I don’t know why she still attends school today when she’s injured. Its lunch now and we’re here in a café talking about what happened last night and what I think about the two having a steamy romantic relationship between them. But, my mind is flying somewhere, so I cannot focus to Tessa’s comments after I told her the story. Early this morning, I woke up from a dream and there are tears on my cheeks again, but this time, my grandma was not there telling stories. Instead, I was there, I am the girl; I received a necklace, from a guy whom I don’t know, but he looks like Skylar. He has Skylar’s resemblance when it comes to eyes, nose and lips. Also, I feel like I’m the girl there in that dream, but I feel like it’s a different girl too. It’s so frustrating! I gently messed my ha
“Aren’t you gonna ask where I am going?” Penny asked. Well to be honest I don’t care where she would go. I don’t even care about her existence. “You’re still cold-hearted asshole god.” She commented. “And you are not?” I rebutted to her. She’s acting like she’s isn’t evil like me, I hate it. “Can’t you even thank me for travelling around this world just to find the balance, I mean the girl?” She asked. “Just go.” I just said and gets into my car then, drive away from her. It’s been hundred years when I exist here on earth and we still haven’t find the girl who is also called the balance. She is fated to be the balance of Dark which is me, and Light which is fucking Vaughn. If she was found first by Vaughn, and didn’t die for about three months after we had found her existence, then I will die, so I need to find her first to kill her so she can’t balance us and Vaughn will die. That is our fate. I kill the balance
I woke up from a loud bang from what I know is happening outside. After that, I heard a continuous shouting also from outside, from which I recognized a woman's voice and a man’s voice. I tried to remember what happened earlier, but I couldn't. I looked around the room and there's no special about it. I just found books, shelves, cabinets, and a long sofa, with the room’s gray motif, including gray bed sheet, pillowcase, sofa, and curtains. Just when I realized I wasn't in my own house. This isn’t Tessa’s room. There’s no room like this in Tessa’s house. Where am I? Did I just enter someone’s home without permission? Questions flooded my brain. All I remember is I was escaping from Skylar because of the embarrassment I did. I go down from the bed and wear the slippers waiting there. “You’re awake.” I look above to the person entered the room. I didn’t hear the door opened though. It’s Skylar. Why is he here? Wait… is this his f
I put the pen down as I stopped writing and remembered the pendant earlier. While looking at it earlier, I felt like something tugged me when I saw that thing. It made have goosebumps for a sec but I don't really understand why.I just brushed it off earlier and because of it, it made me quiet the entire time riding in Skylar's car. Skylar might have noticed it or he just don't careI just got home because when I wake up at Skylar, the school time is over, my mom is gonna kill me for sure. I walked up and tried to fix the things in my desk after I wrote something. That feeling still bugged me till now, and it's quite annoying actually.I lied down in bed and reached for the remote of my television in my bedside table. I should just watch some movies to ease my mind, since I'm done with my school works and other related stuffs.Horror movie seems quite nice; I think it can relieve my thoughts on the pendant if I watched some.
I must say, I felt like I’m in the other dimension with Skylar when we’re riding all the way from our house to Tess’, in other dimension where it’s only the two of us. The time we had together was so precious to me and magical even if it is just 15 minutes and we even didn’t talk. And that was the first time that I saw and hear him laugh. His laugh…..is so manly and addicting in my ears. I want to hear it every second!“So, what’s going on between you and Skylar?”I wish the time stopped so I could be with him for too long. Then, I remember Vaughn. Was there really going on between them?“Earth to Avis!” shouted Tess to me and claps her hand in front of my face.I slightly jump on my seat because of what she did. We are sitting here in her bed in her bedroom. It’s been 1 hour since Skylar drop me off here in Tess’ house.“What’s your problem?!” I shoute
