Like no tomorrow
“Sir please sir, my parents can’t pick me up today. My bus will leave in 15 minutes. I have no way to go home” she begged. “You have not performed well in your internals. You have to stay back for special classes” her maths teacher told blocking her way out of the room. It was already late. She doesn’t want to attend the special classes. She might have scored less in internals. But that’s because they kept changing the teacher for maths. It confused her. She was standing near the door waiting for some kind of miracle. Someone save me, she thought pouting and wringing her hands in her uniform.
“Psst!”a voice whispered behind the teacher, who was talking to one of the parents inside the class. Her best friend was standing on the other side, near the staircase. “Give me your bag” her best friend whispered. “Why?” she asked, sliding her bag to her friend, when their teacher turned his back to them. “Run when I tell you, don’t look back, we’ll meet at the gate” her friend explained without any pretext. “What?” she asked, panicking. This idiot’s gonna kill me she thought looking at her friend, who had both their bags on her shoulder.
Their teacher went inside for something and “RUN GIRL RUN!!! DON’T LOOK BACK!!” her best friend screamed running down the stairs next to her. “HEY, don’t you dare bunk the -” their teacher came to stop her. I’m dead I’m dead I’m dead, I’m gonna die and come and haunt that stupid friend i chose, she thought as she ran to the stairs that was on the other side of the corridor. Her teacher was calling but she didn’t look back. She ran till legs spasmed and breath came short. He saw her standing near the gate, waiting near the gate, holding up the bus. Maybe I won't kill her today, she thought, as they boarded the bus and catched their breath sitting at their usual spot.
“Idiot” she told her friend. “hey,I came and saved you like a guardian angel from that guy’s mind numbing class and this is how you thank me. I should have left you there. Whatever small amount of brain you have would have become noodles at the end of the class.”, her friend ranted, throwing a water bottle to her. “ ahhh My hero” she mocked her friend, leaning heavily on her. “Alright Alright, move.” her best friend said.
“hey, what’s the first class tomorrow?” she asked her friend.
“...He’s gonna kill us”
Let’s take care of that tomorrow...
