    High School
    Chapter 8

    I was shocked, scared mostly. I have never seen Zane so angry that my eyes filled with tears. But I managed to hold it back.
    “Who the hell do you think you are?” his face was red with fury. I couldn’t reply. Words won’t come out of my mouth. I was thinking about how we had that one moment, where everything just faded away. The fight, the anger, the pain... Now it was all back. He is now humiliating me in front of the whole class full of my enemies.
    “If you want to say something, say it on my face. If you don’t have the guts for it, then rot in hell”. I could feel his anger surging on each of his words. And adding flavour to the scene, everyone in the class who hates me started clapping hands and whistling. Wow! Didn’t expect that one. Adam was in the front row of the show going on. That hurt me more. Suddenly Damian came into the class and asked for Zane, but he was too busy trash talking to me. When Zane didn’t respond to Damian’s call, he came inside and poked him. Zane looked at him for a second and turned to me again.
    “This would be the last time I speak to you. Hereafter I don’t even wish to look at your face even to fight. Because that’s how much hatred I have for you. So mind your own business and stay away from me.” That was it. He just walked away in between all the clapping and whistling. If it was in a movie, the slow-motion would have suited the situation. Whatever heroic moment Zane and others thought it was, Damian was pissed. He came to me and asked, “I suggest you write me a complaint, do you have any?”
    And before I could respond, Adam from the back said, “even if she has, what’s the big deal? It will be a suspension to an extent; Zane will be okay with it”.
    “I don’t”, I said blinking back the tears.
    “That’s settled then. Back to class, where were we, Coding?”
    I was thinking about the reason why Zane was pissed at me. He seemed fine before the ceremony. What might have triggered him so much? Ahhh! There you go.
    I remembered the conversation I had with the cabinet girls just before the ceremony began. I think I might have told them his only nickname nobody knows, or nobody knew. I used to call him ‘Boo’ when we were dating. And I was the only one who called him that. So he didn’t need to investigate much on who published that name to some girls in Biomaths. I didn’t do it on purpose and I regretted it the moment it came out of my mouth. But it was my fault. I shouldn’t have said it. Those bitches! I turned around to see Zane staring at me, he was still angry. I don’t know how or why, but I mouthed “I am sorry” to him, and his expression changed. I think I saw a glimpse of a smile on the corner of his lips, but that was it. He turned his head back to class before I could make sure of it. After class, I took my things and waited for Rose at the basketball court. Matt came to me.
    “Hey Mad”. He started talking to me with a small smile on his face.
    “ohh you weren’t there,” I said and chuckled.
    “Nope, but I heard.”
    “Isn’t that obvious?”
    “He can be an ass at times, you know that”
    “He wasn’t, this was my mistake. And I learned my lesson. Never try to be friends with people who hate you”
    He smiled and asked, “so you re okay?”
    “I have been at worse, so no big deal. How are you holding up? I am sure they mock you for being friends with me.”
    “They do, as a matter of fact. But they did the same in my case also. So there is hope”
    “They didn’t talk to u for months, not for years. It’s been 2 years, so I am not hopping anything. But I am fine.” I said with a fake smile. I saw his eyes shifting to someone. I could predict who it was in an instant by that look. It’s Jules, his girlfriend. Matt and Jules got together in 9th grade. They are a bit cheesy but perfect for each other.
    “I will be back in a minute”, Matt said to me shyly.
    “Its okay, Rose is here, I will be going. Seeya”. He gave me a quick hug and left.
    “I didn’t know you and Jules were the same course”, I said to Rose as she came laughing towards me.”
    “You didn’t?” she said acting confused and then she started laughing again.
    “Someone’s in a good mood huh?” I asked casually
    “Yea, I didn’t get any scolding today. Usually, I will be outside the class for most of the period. Today I got to sleep in class. You know that’s progress!”
    I didn’t say anything. I just stared at her with my ‘wtf’ expression.
    “Heard about the little show off in class by Zane”, she sighed. I didn’t respond again.
    “I am sure he is feeling a bit guilty right now. I could sense it in his face.”
    “Oh, Mr Zane Cooper felt guilty? That’s new and odd”. I mocked.
    “Come on! Come let’s buy Sipup”. I and Rose went back to being our crazy normal.
    I was getting ready for bed after the dishes. I got a message and I took my phone to check it. I might be dreaming. Its Zane.

    Problem itself is a problem and every problem has it's own solution. Instead of counting your problems just count your blessings.

    Annual Day

    As I lay down and wonder
    What the hell did I do to make such a blunder
    Seeing my friends laughing and joking
    As I gave a performance such rocking

    Yes you are right it's an annual day
    And I made myself embarrassing in front of my bae
    I thought the song I would sing would be a smash
    But I thing it's rythem unfortunately just crashed
    It was a song that I did written on my own
    Thought that the school staff would listen and get blown
    Thank God, the tomatoes were not thrown

    I guess I could not become a simple songwriter
    As my song aren't such billboard brighter
    Well I guess I just have another plan
    To make a thousand or so fans

    Will you guess that my beautiful audience?
    Yes I am a comedian...

    To be successful. you need patience that allows you to:
    Never be scared to be called as failure
    Never thought to be extremely happy for your success.

  • ritukumarchand 2w

    Every single day. I don't pray to God to let me always be happy. I pray to God to give me the power to endure all the pain with smile.

    I dreamt of you today
    In my dream, you went away
    You didn't even look back
    And you never came back
    I guess dreams really are an extension of real life
    Because all I wanted was you in my life
    But all you did was break me into little pieces
    Now I'm writing these notes knowing you will never see them
    But I'll write them all the same
    This is the only way I know to mourn what I was too blinded to see
    Blinded by love that swallowed me like the sea
    I am starting to realize now
    That to be rejected by one does not make me worthless
    For every one that rejected me
    It showed me there's more that accepts me
    Not for what I can offer, like you wanted
    But for who I am, like I always wanted
    That is not a dream, afterall
    I thought it was, when you left
    I miss you, but there is nothing left
    For now I will be my all.

    Darkness filling me,
    Anger consuming me,
    My subconscious,
    thwarting my consciousness,
    I can't breathe,
    I can't hold much longer
    Should I give in?
    No! Have faith, this time will pass,
    I assumed.
    But, it went on and on
    In the end, I lost my grip,
    and I gave in.

    Bebas si ye shaam hai
    Nhi pata anjaam hai
    Phir bhi ek aas rhega
    Nhi jab koi saath rhega
    Bana sadaiv vishwaas rhega
    Jab jab mere paas rhega

    She was alone and desperate.
    She suffered and lost.
    Loneliness was worse, she realized
    Love couldn’t help her, but words did.
    She fell in love with the letters,
    that made her look deep, and in between each word,
    she created poetry with her heart
    Because that what helped her express
    when she couldn’t, alone!

    High School
    Chapter 7

    I was getting ready for the cabinet ceremony. We all were. It was so congested in the girls' room that it was really suffocating. Beads of sweat slipping down my throat. It felt like a steam bath, except for the noise, sweat smell, and above all, it was a washroom. I got out as soon as I finished my hair. Cool air blew over my face and god! That's the best feeling ever. I went back to class. There was no one there. Everyone went out for the general assembly. The ceremony was after that. I went to my seat, took the water bottle from my bag and started drinking when I heard footsteps approaching. I was turned away from the door. Someone came into the class and was standing close to me. I put the bottle back in my bag and turned around abruptly. It was Zane. His seat was 2 rows in front of me. And he was taking something from his bag, maybe the vows. I barely noticed. I was concentrating on his looks. He was so hot in his suit and the sweat beads on my temples were back. He caught me looking at him. And what the fuck am I doing? I was looking at him as a puppy waiting for his master to throw a ball to fetch. He came close to me never taking his eyes off me. For one second I saw the old Zane through his eyes. For one second I thought he was mine. And I was his. And now he was standing so close to me that I could literally feel his breath on my face, a warm breeze. Though it was warm, it was like an ice cube on the back of my neck and I trembled. He held out his hands to my side and leaned in close.... and took Adam's bag from the side, turned around with one side glance at me and left. And I... I let myself out a long breath which I didn't know I was holding all this time. I sat there, as memories flooded back to mind.

    9th grade

    We were having a free hour. I think the substitution was Chemistry. But the teacher wasn't here yet. Zane was looking at me from where he was sitting, but I didn't look back. I was so shy to catch him looking at me. But I could feel his eyes on me. And knowing that made me smile.
    "Chemistry lab. Now". Our then chemistry teacher came to the class and said. Everyone was forming a line to go to the lab. I couldn't find my record. It was here. I saw it a few minutes ago. Where did it go?
    " Madi, come on", the teacher said.
    "Yes ma'am, will be there in a minute."
    And they left. I was checking everywhere for my record. My bag, my desk, under it, Jill's bag (the girl who was sitting next to me) and I couldn't find. Suddenly there was a bang on my desk that made me turn around, terrified. Zane was standing in front of me with my record in his hands. I tried to snatch it from him, but he grabbed my hand, leaned in and kissed me. It was shocking/surprising. I didn't even have time to look around to see if someone was in the class. But obviously, Zane checked that out already. Like he wasn't planning to kiss me while I look for my record which obviously he took so that I will be alone in the class so that he can come and --- and yeah -- do this. My heart started sinking inside and my knees felt weak. I was melting on it. When he pulled back, it was like some part of me was taken away from me like I suddenly became incomplete. And I realised that part was him.
    He was resting his forehead on mine. Breathing hard, he said
    "Thanks for the record, see you in the lab." And left. I sat there, feeling his sweetness left on my lips.

    I let myself cool for a minute and I went out for the ceremony.
    House 4 captain was Elec. But he got into a fight with some of the seniors and got suspended for 3 days and was removed from the cabinet post. And I missed it while I went with mom for her joining. Good for him. I mean a bit good for me.
    Matt came to me.
    "You look pretty! Are you wearing lipstick?" He asked casually.
    "Nope, just some gloss". I replied by dramatically pouting my lips and patting my hair back on my shoulder. He smirked.
    " you look good yourself". I said to Matt. And yes he was. His straight, light Auburn hair was all set up and his forehead was visible. Usually, he puts his hair messy and we could barely see his eyes. Why has he covered all his beauty so long? I wondered.
    "Thank you". He said, slightly blushing.
    Everyone was looking good. To be precise, everyone was looking decent. I went to the girls' cabinet members and blended into their conversations. The ceremony was over and I couldn't wait to go spend some time with Rose. I miss her so much. I came back to class and everyone was there. I got in, packed my things and was going to leave when Zane came inside the class and started shouting at me in front of the whole class. I have never seen him this angry, not even when we broke up.

    Chapter 6

    "10 hours? Really? 10 hours by road?" I was literally yelling at my mom for no reason, pacing on the hallway.
    "Yea, I will try to come all weekends," she said.
    "No, you can't. You can't travel every week like that. You will get sick travelling that far by bus"
    "I said I will try". She stressed on try.
    I sighed and sat on the couch, trying so hard to keep it together. The only constant I have now in my life is her. And she's moving. My mother is a Nurse. She got the job after she gave birth to me.
    " hey, you are gonna be okay, okay?" She put a hand on my knee and tried to calm me."
    "So it's just me, dad and him?"
    And this 'him' is my brother. Yes, I have an elder brother, Mike who is 2years elder to me. I don't think I am gonna make it with the both of them. Mike is a pain in the ass.
    "You can handle it. Your brother will take care of you"
    "Yeah, you tell him!"
    "I just don't want you two to fight all the time. Your dad will kill you both" she laughed. But I didn't think that was funny, so I remained silent.
    "When do you leave?"
    "Next week."
    "What!?" Yelled again.
    "Shuh, yeah we have a week together. Besides you can come along when I join." She said. I was being calm until she added
    "If this transfer came a week ago, you could have come along and joined some school there."
    I bit the inside of my cheeks. Trying to keep it cool. Now I have to adjust with all these happening. I have to survive this without no happiness at home and at school. Life is greater than I ever imagined. How can I thank God!
    We were having dinner at night when I realised another thing. Cooking. Omg, now I have to learn how to cook. I will have to cook for my dad and Mike. We finished our dinner and I went back to bed. I called Rose and told her about the same. She kinda supported me with all her dry jokes, which at times made me think I wanna puke everything I ate. And my good brother was yelling at some online random guys who he plays DOTA with.
    "YOU HAVE TO KILL HIM YOU ASS****" he yelled on the other side.
    "Shut up Mike, I want to sleep" I yelled back.

    A week passed by with all the horrible things. Cabinet practice, the ignorance of my best friends, and the loneliness. My mom was packing everything when I came back home. She's leaving tomorrow. Mike and I are going with dad to drop her. 8 and a half hours in the car sucked. But the place was so beautiful. One way I was happy that my mom is going to work here. She doesn't have to travel a lot daily. She will have a calm and relaxed atmosphere to work, she doesn't have to bother about me and Mike. She will be alright. I will be too. There wasn't much drama when we said goodbyes. She will be coming next week home. We hugged and kissed. But, the feeling came rushing into my veins on the journey back. Another 8 and a half hours without her in the car. I slept most of the time.

    The first day without mom wasn't that awful, but shocking. Mike made me coffee in the morning while I was getting ready for school.
    "What you want?" I asked him.
    "Screw you, dad asked me too. Don't flatter yourself!" He said loathing.
    I pouted and said thank you.
    "Yeah, whatever. Don't bother me with anything else, am going back to bed.
    " yeah whatever". I said and took a sip. Mm, it's good.

    "Madi's mother got a promotion transfer, did you know?"
    Adam's mom was washing dishes in their kitchen when he came to drink water.
    "How would I know?" Adam responded opening the fridge and taking the bottle out.
    "She called me some time back."
    "Who? Madi?" He asked taking a mouth full Water.
    "No, her mother. She joined also."
    "Seriously? Again?"
    "Again what?"
    "You two fighting again?"
    Adam didn't respond to that, instead, he put the bottle back in the fridge and went back.
    "Adam?" His mom called out, which he completely ignored.

    Adam came back to his room and locked it behind. He fell back on his bed, took his phone and dialled Zane.
    "Yep," Zane said on the other side.
    "Madi's mom got transferred"
    "So?" Adam laughed. Adam has this unique kind of laugh, which makes other people laugh along, even though the joke isn't that funny.
    "What's wrong with you?" Zane asked, irritated.
    "Nothing, just checking on you. Obviously, you loved her once. And obviously, we hate her now, I hate her now." Adam stressed on 'I'. He continued "so I should probably check if you have any soft spot for her."
    "Look who's talking! Listen, I don't care about her anymore. Did u seriously call me to talk about Madi?"
    "Nope, I called to check on you" a wicked grin on his face.
    "Thank you for your concern. I am sleepy. Can I go?" Zane asked tiredly.
    "Oh yeah sure. Goodnight brother!"
    Zane put his phone down. A worried expression came on his face which he tried to hide. No, he wasn't hiding it. He was making himself believe that he didn't care. And then he went to bed.

    The next day, the day of the Cabinet ceremony, when I came to school, everyone was asking me about my mom. What the hell? How come? At first, I thought it was Rose who played the BBC. But then I realised it was Adam. Rose isn't here. She's in CBSE. My mom called his mom yesterday. It has to be it. Damnit, Adam!
    I was pissed at him for that. Everyone was looking at me with pity.
    "Hey, Madi" a girl from our cabinet, whom Adam was totally crushing on the other day came beside me.
    "Hey" I smiled.
    "How are you feeling?"
    "I am okay, why?"
    "Heard about you mom"
    "Uh, she's not dead, actually," I said putting an uncertain expression on my face.
    "No, no I mean, I know what you go through with all the boys, not talking and all that. This would be terrible."
    I didn't respond to her. Her presence started annoying me.
    "Adam told me not to talk to you, but still you are on Cabinet and all, so I thought I will say hi"
    "Oh, hi. And thanks for the hi." I walked away.
    That just made me so mad. Adam, my best friend since childhood told some girl he barely knew not to talk to me!
    Wth was he thinking?
    I came into class. I looked at Adam, who didn't even look at me.
    I got cranky and sat on my seat. Everyone was busy talking and laughing and writing notes. I just sat there. Took in everything. And thinking about the 2years I am gonna spend in this hell.
