🌺Pinky’s Short series🌺
Tears welled down my face continuously as mopped my face with a handkerchief.
“Why the heck are you crying Gracie? You should be happy you found your real parents” Mona patted my back.
“Mona! Am happy that am finally going to be with my real parents but I just can’t bear this” I wept
“Bear what Gracie?” Mona asked
“The news is all over the school and Cas-sandra feels that I stole her life from her” I cried
“She was the one who stole a life from you” Mona said
“Mona how am I going to live in such a big house with no siblings?” I worried
“And you prefer living in a small house where you’re being treated like a slave and you have siblings?” Mona cried out.
“Mona to be honest am really going to miss them… Am going to miss my friends so badly especially Naomi” I wailed
“You know girl…. Living with your parents is going to be more fun!” Mona said
“Oh Mona! You know I don’t want this too right?” I cried
“I know” Mona said as I hvgged her ti-ghtly.
“So what’s the court’s final verdict?” Mona asked anxiously
“Nothing yet… But there will be a hearing tomorrow and possibly the last” I said in tears.
“Oh God! I just hope this works out!” Mona said calmly.
It was leisure time….
I was very famished so I headed towards the cafeteria with my friends.
“Cas-sie! What would you like for lunch” Lucy asked
“Apple jui-ce and smashed potatoes with chicken” I said as we walked into the cafeteria.
I looked around in shock….
We stood at a place for five minutes…
We exchanged glances!
Normally, whenever I walk into the cafeteria all the students leaves immediately.
But right now, no-one noticed my pres£nce.
“Hey! What are you guys still doing here?” I yelled angrily
They cl@pped their hands and made jest of me laughing.
We bec@m£ embarras-sed.
“Excuse me! Did she just say we should leave?” one of them said audibly
“That’s stupid! We should tell her to shoo because she’s nothing but a slum girl” Amelia said loudly.
Shame filled my face as I bowed my head.
This is worst humiliation I’ve ever gotten…
They laughed loudly.
My friends p@rted from me as they walked to a table.
“How dare you Amelia?” I shouted as I raised my hand to sl@p her but she held my hand and pushed me ha-rd on the ground.
My bu-tts landed on the ha-rd floor and the students hit their hands on the desk laughing.
“You belong in the slums Cas-sandra so go back to where you belong” Amelia said as they supported her.
“You will all pay for this!” I cried as I rushed out of the cafeteria.
I ran as fast as my legs could carry me.
Tears didn’t st©p running down my face.
I headed straight to the restroom and ban-ged the door.
I leaned against the door and gradually slumped on the ground in tears.
This is all your fault Gracie.
“I HATE YOU SO MUCH GRACIE” i screamed.
I can’t believe those students talked back at me.
Talk more of ma-king me look like a piece of trash.
My cell phone rang aloud
It was mommy….
📱Hello mommy…. I said as I wiped off my tears
📱Hey baby! plea-se do come back early today OK…. Mom said
📱Why mom?… I asked
📱Just come home early baby. Mom said and hung up.
I shook my head.
Why did she hang up so early?
I have to make Gracie pay for everything she has done to me.
I have to teach her a lesson
I can’t believe I’ve not only been belittled but has also become an object of ridicule.
I have to use this to my favour!
I sm-irked wickedly.
I walked downstairs with my books in my hands.
I saw Gracie climbing upstairs with Mona.
I walked closer to her and pushed her r0ûghly and she fell ha-rd on the ground.
Luckily Mona caught her.
“Cas-sandra you almost hurt her badly” Mona screamed at me.
I rolled my eyes.
Gracie only kept mute as she cleaned her b©dy.
They turned to leave but I held Gracie’s hair and dragged her back.
“Ouchh…. You’re hurting me!” Gracie cried
“You might think you have won Gracie but believe me, enjoy while you can cos it won’t last… I will take back everything you are stealing from me” I said harshly
“I stole nothing from you Cas-sandra!! Am as confused as you are” Gracie said as she walked away from me.
I will make your life hell Gracie!
You will forever regret that you crossed my path.
I drove into the mansion and parked my car at the garage
I walked into the house.
I saw momma and daddy sitting at the sitting room crying.
The nanny was also sitting beside mom and consoling her.
“Hi mommy…Hi daddy!” I said as they calmly nodded.
That was when I sighted my bags all packed up and placed beside the stairs.
My heart skipped a beat.
The door was thrown open and Mr Fred walked in.
“Mommy! Daddy what’s going on?” I asked anxiously in tears.
Mommy quic-kly hvgged me ti-ghtly.
“plea-se calm down baby” Daddy said
Mom couldn’t talk, she was alre-ady in tears.
I bur-st into tears as I held mommy ti-ght.
“Mommy plea-se don’t give me to him!” I cried out.
“plea-se leave my baby” Mommy said sharply
I held mommy so ti-ght and mom held me too.
“Mommy I don’t want to go with him…” I wailed uncontrollably…..
Tears welled down my chubby cheeks as I sat in the tricycle with the God damn man that calls himself my father.
I can’t believe I entered this nons-en-se cab.
Cas-sandra of all people….
A born queen like me!
Does this mean I have no car anymore?
Am now so poor…..
I mopped my face with my handkerchief….
I stared at the man with so much hatred and disdain.
“Don’t worry Cas-sie! You’ll be fine!!” He said as he tried tou-ching my hand.
I quic-kly pushed him f0rç£fully.
“Don’t you dare t©uçh me with your filthy disgusting hands! I can never be fine with your wretched family” I said as I sighed loudly.
I can’t stand this good for nothing man.
I quic-kly picked up my cell phone and plugged my ear pod into my ears.
This is the worst day of my life.
I breathed heavily.
I walked into the mansion with my luggage.
“Mother plea-se I don’t want to stay here” I said in fear.
“”Shut your mouth! Go ahead to your parents” Mother said with no slightest sympathy.
Actually her whole b©dy was bruised.
She was thor0ûghly beaten up in the prison before she was bailed out.
I entered the big sitting room.
The maids and Mr and Mrs Charlotte Salvador were waiting for me.
I looked around the sitting room……
The uncountable pictures of Cas-sandra were hung on the wall.
“Gracie dear! You’re welcome home!” Mr Sam Salvador said as he hvgged me.
Mrs Charlotte was in tears.
They hvgged me ti-ghtly.
“I’ll show you to your room honey” Mrs Charlotte said
“Thank you ma’am” I said calmly as I watched mother walk away.
I alre-ady miss her….
Though she doesn’t want to admit it, I know she misses me too.
“It’s mommy!” Mrs Charlotte corrected me.
I f0rç£d a smile.
“Am sorry…. It’s going to be a little difficult for me but I’ll try” I said as she k!$$£d my forehead.
I climbe-d the stairs with her.
Is this a dream?
I wondered as we walked into the well furnished room.
My jaw dropped in awe.
I walked in caculable steps into the room.
“Is this for me?” I asked
“Yes baby! This is going to be your new room” Mrs Charlotte said smiling.
A big banner decorated and written GRACIE was hanged on the wall.
“Thank you so much ma’am… I mean mom!” I said as she smiled.
“Am happy we found you child…. And am willing to make up for the time we were ap@rt from each other! This is gonna be tough but I promise to try my best dear Gracie” Mrs Charlotte said with tears in the tone of her voice.
“Thank you… For the first time in my life, I feel loved” I said as we hvgged each other.
Mr Sam entered and joined the group hvg.
The stupid old looking cab halted in front of the hell hole called a house.
I glanced around in disgust.
Am I really going to live in this hole?
I can’t breathe….. I got down from the cab with my face squee-zed.
The so called siblings rushed out to meet me.
“Hey! Don’t! Don’t t©uçh me….” I screamed as they stood at a place.
I watched Mr Fred drag my luggage inside.
I can never t©uçh them….
I just had my nails done!
Expensive one at that… I can’t afford to ruin in them.
“You’re welcome to our house and home” one of them said excitedly.
They were so excited as they perceived my expensive perfume.
Tch… I cli-cked my ton-gue loudly.
“Really? Is this a home?” I blurted out still staring disgustedly at everywhere.
“Cas-sandra this is your home and our home toi” Mr Fred said
“Duh! Gross….. I am not a rabbit so this can never be my home… NEVER” I gro-an ed
“So are you calling us rabbits?” Monica asked
I rolled my eyes mischievously.
“This… Is a hole not a house and you guys live here so what lives in a hole if not rabbits?” I said rudely.
The girls bec@m£ angry but I don’t care.
Just then, their mother walked in with her messed up face.
“My daughter…!!” She called and tried to hvg me.
I quic-kly pushed her r0ûghly and she landed her bu-tt on the ground.
They g@sped in shock.
“Eww! Before you t©uçh me try to sanitize those stinky sticks you call hands…. You disgust me!” I exclaimed
Monica raised her hand to sl@p me but the old lady who called herself my mom st©pped her.
“Monica plea-se don’t” She said.
“Cas-sandra am your mother!” She said as I scoffed.
“In your next three lives, you can never be anything close to my mother, the only thing you can be is a God forsaken maid to me” I said as they stared at me stunned.
They really don’t know how much I despise this place!
I walked into the poor furnished room.
The dressing mirror was half broken.
And the ceiling fan looked so old.
I looked around in disgust.
“This is your new room” Mr Fred said.
“You are really a worthless man Mr Fred! So this is all you can afford as a room…. That means I can no longer have a sleepover p@rty with my friends cos they can’t stand this mess you called a room” I said
He stared at me in anger.
But he kept mute.
You know what Mr Fred! You failed as a man!” I said
He flared up in annoyance.
And landed a dirty sl@p on my cheeks.
I held my cheeks in shock as tears flooded down my face……
To be continued….
Cas-sandra have got guts ooh 🙄
Very spoilt… 😶
The Salvador’s really spoilt her
