[trouble in trouble]
11:00, Lydia finally let me go to bed by 11:00
. How long will my life be so painful? life with
my step mom has been hell! She didn’t even
have plans of letting me go until I lied, i had to
tell her that my period showed up and she had
to let me go because the entire neighbourhood
knows that odeya has bad cramps!
I tried lying on my bed when I received a text
from rose, i looked Into her window and her
room lights where shining brightly; its obvious
she is missing me.I rushed out of my room, i’d
rather sleep with my bestie than stay alone in
this heaven forsaken room thinking about
” what are you looking at?”I asked her because
she was deeply engrossed in her laptop
“Odeya come closer,check out this
headline”she said adjusting on her bed.
“Dream high school isn’t a school , rather it is
‘hell.” These where the last words of min soo,
senior high student of dreame high school who
just committed suicide today;she is just 18. in a
white paper min soo had boldly written
“girlfriends?”..no, it should be “girl-devils.” The
industry behind “girlfriends” had taken the
” a student commits suicide out of depression,
but she blames it on a female band of girls juzt
her age; Is the world really going to believe
that lie?” These where the words of Richard,
General manager of v entertainment.
“Odeya, dreame high school is really scary”
“I don’t really care, odeya doesn’t go to school
and its obvious I never will.I am just really
really sorry for min soo.”i said.
“Me too,”she said.
My phone sparkled and I saw a text, since
8pm. I opened up and it was The manager our
dept in blinkz hotels/suites.
Odeya there will be a show on Saturday night
at the hall,you have been chosen as one of the
“Ok sir”I repiled.
” show?”rose asked
“Yes Saturday night.”I said
She hastily browsed it and it previewed.
Lenora Thompson will be seen live at blinkz on
Saturday night in honour of the presidents
I smiled and hugged rose tight,Lenora Is my
“I can’t believe am going to watch Lenora sing
” i said.
“Better prepare to look good,the show is still a
bit far”she said.
“Silly u, am on the waiting list”I said and she
another headline turned up
Dreame released a song today in honour of the
commoner min soo’s death, not only that;Bryan
personally honored the family for their loss.
some fans dropped a comment
“This is all formalities, the boyfriends and
girlfriends know exactly what happened to that
commoner. The Idea of scholarship in dreame
high is a total failure cos the only 3 common
students who where admitted had a bad story
to tell;2 committed suicide while one ran away.
I believe I am speaking for the General
populace when I say that we commoners are
no longer interested in dreane high,its a school
for the rich and nothing can change that. so the
scholarship which just started has to end.”he
. The board behind dreame high school
had already marked today as the very end of
the new scholarship into dreame high school.
” wow,”rose Said
“Are the boyfriends really that bad?”I asked
” I guess,”she said.
” so u texted, what did you want me to do for
you?” I asked
” i wanted you too–” I heard my room bell
oh no!! I told Lydia I was sleeping.
I hastily stood up and rushed out.
” odeya good night.
I pulled into my window and Lydia was
standing there with her face like Lydia the
” you told me you got your period and u were
weak and sleepy,am i right?” she asked.
“Well I just —
“But it’s obvious you are very fit tonight, follow
me!!” She said and i followed her innocently.
We got to the passage and she brought out a
Basket of beads.
” what should i–
” count them
“These are bold beads, i just want to know if
madam Lincoln cheated me,”she said.
” can’t I count it tomorrow, you know I really —
“Start!!!!!” She shouted and headed into her
I sat on the floor and started counting, ever
since my mum ran away, I stopped living .
I was done by 3:30,i hastily rushed into my
room to sleep.
“IS that stupid girl still sleeping,odeya!!” My
stepmother shouted, she woke me up from my
I stood up and picked my clock;its 4:00 am,it’s
time to open her shop, i better jump out the
window so she won’t slap me for delaying.
Other kids are going to school, but what about
I work alot of jobs daily, trying to survive is not
I help so many women both pregnant and lazy
to clean their shops early In the morning. I
headed to all the shops one after the other just
after I was done cleaning lydia’s store. i locked
their doors and I kept their keys.
I did this half awake and half asleep.
Day broke and i ran off to “pause for pizza,”
that’s where i work ; both delivery and manual
” good morning sir,” I said, I was fully drooling
and looking so tired but I can’t miss work, I
might get fired.
” s-square entertainment ordered coffee,” he
” dreame?,”i asked.
“Yes, the company not the “boyfriends”
“I understand sir, i will take their order.” I said
as I hastily wore my t-shirt and ran off with the
coffee neatly arranged. thank God s-square is
really close, and After this delivery i will go
home for a hot bath. I can’t even open my eye
well,i cant even see well,God help me!
The security let me in and i strolled in while
really really trying to clear my sight.
I suddenly ran into someone , the hot coffee
poured on us both and stained his shirt. He
flinched with full shock, my own mouth was now
open. he is tall And has a sexy figure,he is
just too beautiful. his blue eyes was already
turning wet with pain as he rolled his eyes. I
looked into his white transparent shirt and i saw
the red marks on his flat tummy….odeya what
did you do?
” what the — how the hell can you be so stupid
miss!!!” he yelled, while hastily brushing his
diamond laid finger from his forehead into his
” am sorry, am really sorry..i..i wasn’t seeing
clearly,please i didn’t –” i couldnt talk again
because i saw the gold necklace he was
wearing,it was originally signed “boyfriend”…o
