(Ãnd the strãnge maidën)
By: Faith Lucky
The woman [email protected]£ running into the room immediately.
“Oh my God!!” She exclaimed and placed her hand on her che-st.
Her eyes were fixed to the strange mirror on the floor which was alre-ady broken.
“What the hell did you do? What happened to the television?” She asked in an alarming tone.
Tele what? What did she just call it?
“Oh! Delaney…What happened?” She grouse.
At that moment, the son stepped in and his eyes wi-de-ned in shock as well.
“I….I saw people moving in them. It was….it was scary” I stuttered to the woman.
Why do I feel like….I did something wrong?
“Hold on; she broke the television on purpose?” The son asked and I took my gaze to the floor immediately.
Why do they keep calling it television? Or is that what it is over here? Do they call their mirrors televisions??
“Seriously mum, Is this the kind of attitude you wanna tolerate here? I’m….”
The son tried speaking but paused and gro-an ed.
“This is just unbelievable” he muttered and walked away.
Why’s everyone mad at me?
“I’m sorry” I turned to the woman and said.
“I….I didn’t know..I mean…I saw people walking in them and I was scared they were….”
“Well, that’s because it’s a movie, Delaney! a movie! What did you expect??” She said with a little rancour and sighed.
Movie? What’s a movie? Why’s everything just being confusing, huh?
“Anyway” she continued.
“You can go back to your room and rest. I’ll just have one of the guards take care of this” she pointed to the strange mirror on the floor.
“Um….I thought we were going out? One of the maids actually…..”
“Yes, yes. I’d intended taking you out for shopping. But an urgent call just [email protected]£ in now and I nee-d to leave right away. So, don’t worry, we can just go in the morning” she replied and started walking away.
“Ma’am” I called her the name I’d been hearing the maids call.
“Oh. Um….go to the kitchen, you’ll find a maid there. Ask her to give you some food, okay? I’m running late alre-ady. So bye” she replied quic-kly and hurried out the door.
Hmm. Where’s the kitchen?
I turned around and looked at the broken mirror on the floor. Why does it seem important to them, huh? And why were they acting like….the people moving in the mirror were normal?
I was about walking away when the door opened and the handsome son walked in with a strange boy. Someone I’d never seen before.
“Woahhh” the new boy exclaimed, his eyes on the broken mirror.
“What happened to the television?”
The whole time, I was staring at him. I couldn’t believe they had a lot of males over here.
“All thanks to the alien” the son replied with an eye roll.
The new boy lifted his eyes and rested them on me.
“And who’s she, dude? Is she a new house help? But…..isn’t that your shi-t?” He asked and pointed to me.
“Seriously, Rio. I don’t wanna talk about it now. Come on” the son replied and started walking away.
The new boy kept staring as they walked pas-s me.
“Um….son” I called back their attention and he turned to look at me with a scoff.
“Hey; I’m not your son,okay? My name is Xavier”
He said with a disgruntled look.
“Xa…Xafier?” I tried pronouncing it and his friend laughed.
“Its Xavier, okay? Xavier”.
“Okay. Xavier” I repeated with a nod.
“I’m sorry but….where’s the kitchen, plea-se?”
He wore a crumpled look and was about saying something when a maid showed up.
“Perfect” he mumbled and walked away with his friend.
Hmm. How rude.
“plea-se, where’s the kitchen?” I asked
“This way, ma’am” she replied and led the way.
We took a corner and entered a different room and a *wow* escaped myl-ips immediately.
Good saviors! What a kitchen!!
Why’s everything about this place so different? Why?
“What would you love to eat, Miss?” The maid asked but I couldn’t reply as I continued gazing round the incredible room.
I saw a lot of amazing things.
I walked over to a table that had some good looking things on it.
“Are these eatable?* I asked the maid, pointing to a [email protected] plate.
“Of course, Miss. Those are bananas” she replied and I arched my brows in surprise.
Bananas? What are bananas?
I plucked one out and started eating it and…..
It was damn bitter!
“Hey; hey; why’re you chewing it that way? You didn’t peel off the back” she ran to me and said as I chewed with a crumpled look.
What back? I wondered?
“That isn’t how its done, miss. You should’ve….”
“No, no. Give me something else. It isn’t sweet” I st©pped her from plucking out another.
It tasted so…gross.
She shrugged and got me something else.
This time around, she called it rice.
She’d given me a strange object to use with, but I couldn’t and insisted on using my hands instead.
Hmm. It was delicious.
When I was done from the kitchen, I left so I could return to my room but unfortunately, I couldn’t locate the room.
Well, the house was so big and different and you wouldn’t blame.
Still turning and turning around, I [email protected]£ across a room with familiar voices.
I st©pped and placed my ear on the door so I could listen properly. It was the woman’s son and his friend.
“Do you think it’s a good idea going there?” I heard his voice.
“Of course, dude. There’s gonna be plenty of as-ses tofu-ck” his friend replied and I cringed.
What’s as-ses? And what’sfu-ck?
“Do you think Chelsea would be there?” The son asked again.
“Well….it’s possible. So, she didn’t speak to you throu-ghout the rest day in school?”
I think that’s a female.
“Yeah….I’ve got no idea what her problem is, anyway”.
“Come on, dude. Hurry up . the earlier we go, the better for us…..”
Hmm. It seems they’re going out?
I left the door and walked away, taking the long thing called *stairs*
Where are they going to huh? It sounds fun.
His mother isn’t at home. And now….he also wants to go out? They wanna leave me all alone?
What if…..I go out with him?
I walked out of the house and looked around.
They normally go out with the tiny houses, right? The ones they call cars?
Hmm. How do I identify the car they’d be going out with? They were so many of them.
I bit my nails and did a guess work.
There was a red house – sorry car – closer to the house and I ran towards it and opened the back door.
The inside was very dark but I got in and la-id on the seat. I wonder why they call this a car. Its almost like a house.
I breathed heavily as I la-id on the car and not long after, I heard their voces.
They were talking and laughing so noisily.
Good saviors. I hope they’re ma-king use of this car.
Their voices and footsteps got closer and closer until I heard the front doors opening.
I was in the right car!!!
“You sure you wanna drive?” I heard his friend ask.
“Yeah….leave it to me” the son replied and immediately, the car started moving.

I tried as much as possible not to make any sound as I la-id in the moving house.
Oh; the car.
“So… Your mother’s gonna be adopting the strange lady?” I heard his friend ask.
“Yeah…and that’s so yuck? I seriously don’t get what’s wrong with mum. Did you see that lady? She’s an alien, dude. She actually broke the television, claiming she saw people moving in them. What the heck???” The son replied, ma-king his friend laugh.
So, they were talking about me?
“But seriously, I think she’s damn beautiful” his friend said and I felt my cheeks become h0t.
“Who’s beautiful? With that long dirty hair of hers? She can’t even….”
“Oh! Cut it out, Xavier. She’s pretty and you know it. You’re just being grumpy”.
“Yeah…whatever. But you know me, Rio. I hate it when I’m stuck with a [email protected] lady. I’m a pla-yboy and I hate…..”
“Yeah…Whatever. Tell that to your mum”.
I heard laughter and they began talking about something else which made me feel better.
So, he hates my pres£nce in the house?
If only I had an option. But, thinking of it, for how long would I nee-d to stay with them? What if people from Marazkna were alre-ady looking for me?
I paused and t©uçhed the treasure on my n£¢k. Well, there’s Noway I’m ever letting go of it.
Its my own way of punishing the Queen for her cruelty.
After a long while, I felt the car st©p moving.
Are we there alre-ady?
“Time for fun!” I heard the son say and next were sound of doors opening.
I remained still and quiet in the car till I couldn’t hear a sound anymore.
I got out of car with Rio and walked towards the house. It was actually a little birthday [email protected] from a clas-smate.
Although, her parents were rich, she didn’t want to [email protected] it in a big way but just decided to hold a little house [email protected] for us.
As expected, I was invited.
Well, if Xavier Maddox isn’t in a [email protected], its useless.
“He’s here!!!” The ladies exclaimed as soon as they sp©tted Rio and I.
Mitchell – the [email protected] – stood up immediately and ran to me.
“Oh! Xavier…I was beginning to think you wouldn’t show up anymore. Thank goodness you made it” she giggled.
‘Yeah….anything for my birthday girl. Happy birthday” I cooed and pe-cked her and her cheeks [email protected]£ red instantly.
Hm. I couldn’t wait to scre-w that as-s.
I looked around but couldn’t find Chelsea. Didn’t she attend?
“Hello Xavier” more greetings kept coming in as Rio and I settled down.
Even the boys pres£nt gave me respect.
“So, what do we have for fun?” One of them asked and immediately, a loud music was turned on, resulting to a mas-sive dance floor.
After staying in the car for a long time and ma-king sure they weren’t around anymore, I opened the door and stepped out.
Wow! My [email protected]!st was hurting like hell.
I stretched and looked around, I was in a different house and heard a loud sound from a [email protected] direction.
So…now, I’m here. What’s next?
I looked around and [email protected]£ really confused, not knowing what else to do.
Maybe, I should check out the direction of the loud sound.
I started walking towards it, ma-king sure my steps were slow and soundless.
As I got closer, the sound [email protected]£ clearer.
And finally, I found them.
Huh? There were so many of them – boys and girls.
I made sure I was well hidden behind a wall as I watched them dance and do strange things.
they seemed to be having fun.
I sp©tted the son – what’s his name again?
A girl was sitting on his legs, while he drank noisily.
And suddenly, I saw something else – I saw a boy and a girl placing theirl-ips on each other. Huh? What’re they doing??
They were both….su-cking each other’sl-ips.
What’re they doing??
I made a crumpled look as I stared at them. It looked really gross. Why would they be s**king each other’sl-ips huh?
I watched them for a long time and after a while, decided to go elsewhere.
Maybe, I should just take a look outside.
I started looking around for an exit and found a tall wall – a fence.
I climbe-d on it and successfully got outside. Wow! But it was so dark.
Where do I start from?
I marked the building properly so I’d be able to find my way back and with that, I started walking away.
I walked for a long time and finally [email protected]£ out to a busy place.
Good saviors!! It was sooo beautiful.
I stood on a fixed point and admired the Paradise. Was earth really this beautiful???
I opened my mouth in shock as I stared at the different lights, people and event.
So many things to try out!!!
I tried running to a [email protected] direction, but suddenly, a car from nowhere flashed lights at me and was on the verge of hitting me when I screamed and fell on the floor.
Thank goodness the car st©pped immediately.
What the hell????
I lifted my head to the car and saw a pretty woman running out from it.
“Hey! I’m so sorry. Were you hurt?” She asked as she rushed to me and helped me from the floor.
Wow! She was so beautiful.
“Oh, dearie. Why weren’t you careful? Did you get hurt?” She asked again, holding my hand.
“I’m….I’m fine” I replied and fred my hand from hers.
I checked myself to be sure I wasn’t bruised in anyway.
“What’re you doing out here dressed like this? And why were you running?” She asked and I pondered.
What’s wrong with my dress?
I paused and looked at my knee.
I can’t see what’s wrong with my dress. Isn’t this the kind of leaves they make use of?
Something started ringing from her bag immediately.
“Um….I nee-d to leave now, okay? Just stay out of trouble and go home? Okay?” She said briskly and I just nodded as she hurried back to her car.
I watched keenly as she opened the door and went in, then moved the car afterwards and a smile t©uçhed myl-ips.
Gosh! She was soo beautiful.
I stood like a statue and watched the car until it’d gotten lost and couldn’t be sp©tted anymore and then, I [email protected]£ back to my s-en-ses.
I was about walking away when I noticed something different about me.
I [email protected] and t©uçhed my n£¢k.
It was empty.
Where is it???
