|A wish episode 13 by Pizarena: 12:48 pm On March 21, 2022|
There’s one thing i love about sitting at the back row, especially if its a seat that is very close to the window. You can either fall asleep or just look outside the window and enjoy the perfect view of the school surroundings. Honestly, i feel bad for those seated at the front row, they are trying their best to stay awake but all they really want to do is either fall asleep or run out of the class. Our geography teacher, Mr Phillip, was a really boring man, no offence, even though i am good at his subject doesn’t mean he’s my favourite teacher. Sometimes i wonder how he was hired when all he do is make students fall asleep with his long and boring explanation. Damon who is seated beside me is currently asleep with his head on the desk while i just stared at the window, hoping this class will end.
I snickered under my breath when Mr Phillip harshly slammed his hand on a boy’s desk, who was asleep, making the latter jump and look around only for his eyes to settle on the stern glare Mr Phillip was giving him. “I’ll appreciate it if you dont sleep in my class Aiden.” Mr Phillip scolded.
“Sorry sir.” Aiden muttered, adjusting himself on the chair. It looks like i snickered a bit too loud again cause Mr Phillip head snapped to my direction, his piercing green eyes boring holes on my face.
“What’s so funny Brielle?”
I coughed a little, trying to keep my voice straight and formal. “Nothing sir.”
“I thought so.” He then returned his attention to the book he’s been holding throughout the lesson. I glanced down at the middle row to see a girl already looking sleepy, trying to stiffle a yawn. I dont blame her though Mr Phillip is really a boring man, am sure he would be very good in making little noisy kids go to sleep.
I blinked, realising that me and Damon were the only one’s in class.
“Damon wake up.” I tapped on his back continuosly. Damon yawned and slowly sat up, rubbing his eyes.
“Is the stupid class finally over?”
“Yep.” I said popping the p.
“Finally.” Damon grimaced. “I though we were going to stay here forever and listen to the man talk about planets.”
I laughed. “C’mon let’s get going.” I picked up my book and pen before standing up and walking over to the door.
“Hey wait up!” I heard shuffling and scraping of chairs before Damon ran towards me. We headed to our lockers and put our books and stationaries inside.
“Damon i dont wanna eat.” I whined, jutting my bottom lip out.
“I’m not dumb Brielle, i saw you skip breakfast this morning and there’s no way you’re going to skip lunch under my watch. Now come on we have to get going or else Alex will have my head for making him wait.”
“Y’all can just eat without me.” I said drily.
“Brielle please dont fight with me on this.” Damon said, sounding frustrated. “Now come on let’s go.”
“I’m not going.” I stated bluntly.
Damon sighed, pinching the bridge of his nose. Something he only does when he’s getting irritated. “I wont hesitate to throw you over my shoulder if you dont move.”
“You cant do that.” I exclaimed.
Damon moved closer to me, his stance turning intimidating. “Wanna test me on that?” He growled.
“No?” I squeaked. Damon rolled his eyes and gripped my hand, practically dragging me towards the cafeteria door. His grip only tightened when i tried yanking my hand from his grasp.
“Sit.” Damon demaned once we got to our usual table in the cafeteria. Shooting him a glare, i reluctanly sat down beside Alex while Damon sat down beside Xavier who was giving us questioning looks.
“Finally.” Alex exasperated, throwing his hands up in the air. “What took you guys so long?”
“Damon was bei-” i was cut short by Damon.
“Brielle didn’t have breakfast this morning and i told her to have lunch with us at the cafeteria. All she said was that she’s not hungry.” Damon chastised.
“I dont see how that is a big deal.” I exclaimed, glaring at Damon.
Xavier sighed. “Just eat the food Brielle.”
“But am not hungry.” I mumbled, gripping the the table tightly.
“Brielle just eat, you dont want to see the annoyed side of Xavier.” Alex whispered in my ear.
“Want to repeat that again Brielle.” Xavier tone was a bit harsh. I gulped and quickly shook my head.
“I thought so.” Xavier picked up a knife and cut through his chocolate cake before stabbing a fork in it and shoving it inside his mouth. Damon and Alex already started eating, all i did was eye the strawberry cheese cake in my plate. Without looking at the cake, i pushed it towards Alex.
“Brielle. Eat.” Xavier said firmly.
“Can i order salad instead?” I pleaded.
“I thought you loved cheesecake why do now want to suddenly order salad?” Damon asked, furrowing his eyesbrows in confusion.
“I just want to try it out.” I blubbered, trying to avoid Xavier suspicious look.
Xavier nodded. “You can get salad.” I got up and walked over to the lunch lady before ordering vegetable salad from her. I took the plate from her hands and went back to the table, it was hard to eat when you know a certain grey eyed boy is burning holes on the side of your face.
I am seated on my bed doing nothing but staring at the window. At school today, i avoided Xavier like a plague because of the whole lunch thing. One thing i’ve taken note of about Xavier is that he’s very smart and isn’t easy to fool. Xavier had cornered me in the janitor’s closet at school today after lunch, demanding that i should tell him why i skipped breakfast today so i did the first thing that came in my mind. I kicked him in a shin and ran out.
“I just hope he isn’t too suspicious.” I muttered to no one in particular. I got up from the bed and made my way over to my walk-in closet, pulling out a blue denim jacket to wear since i only had a yellow tank top on. I went downstairs to the living room and opened the front door, making sure not to make any noise cause i dont need Xavier telling me his usual quote of ‘if you’re going out one of us should be with you’ it can be really annoying when Xavier is overprotective. I thought Alex was just blabbing when he said Xavier is really protective now i understand why he said that. Two days ago when a boy of about nineteen who is also the pizza delivery guy, asked for my number. Xavier was ready to pounce on the guy but the pizza guy just gave him the middle f!ng£r which made Xavier turn red. His last words were.
‘See you later baby girl’ as if that was not enough. He fudging winked at me. Damon had to hold Xavier down from beating up the pizza guy cause the pizza guy might end up in the hospital with many broken bones.
I chuckled softly at the memory and continued walking till i reached the park. I sat down on the swing and began swaying back and forth as i watched little kids play together. I noticed a girl curled up on a bench crying, she seems to be not more than seven. I got down from the swing and walked up to her. I crouched down to her level and stroked her hair soft curly brown hair, her light brown skin was beautiful and seems to glimmer in the sun. She looked up and immediately flinched.
“Its okay sweetie.” I reassured. “I’m not gonna hurt you.” She nodded, sniffing again.
“What’s your name?” I asked gently.
“Abby.” She mumbled.
I smiled. “That’s a nice name for a beatiful girl like you.”
“No am not.”
I frowned. “Why would you say that Abby, of course you’re beautiful.”
“The other kids dont want to play with me!”
“Because of my skin colour.” Abby sniffed. My heart ached for her, why cant people just see her as any other human being on earth? Racism is a really cruel thing that some fellow white people are fond of.
“I’m i ugly?” Abby asked me.
I quickly shook my head. “No! Of course not Abby, dont listen to what other people say okay? You’re really beautiful.”
Abby smiled. “Thank you um?”
“Thank you Brielle, you’re really nice and pretty.” She giggled.
“Aww thanks darling.” I said. “Where are your parents? You shouldn’t be alone at the park.
“I’m here with my big sister!” She exclaimed.
“Oh, where is she then?”
Abby instantly looked down guiltily. “I kinda ran off without informing her.”
“Abby.” I scolded. “That’s not very nice, now come on let’s go find your big sister. She must be really worried about you.” I got up and held my hand down which she gladly took. We walked for a while and we still couldn’t find Abby sister.
“Abby!” A feminine voice yelled, sounding exhausted and relieved. I looked over to see a girl of about my age running towards us. She grabbed Abby and engulfed her in a hug.
“Dont ever scare me again like that Abby.” She said softly, pulling back from the hug and klzzing Abby’s forehead.
“I’m sorry.” Abby apologized, looking down at her lap.
The older girl tilted Abby’s chin up, smiling softly at her. “Hey am not mad okay? Just dont run off like that again.”
“Okay.” Abby said happily. “I promise!”
“Oh Ava.” Abby turned to face me. “Brielle helped me in searching for you.”
The older girl smiled at me. “Hi, i’m Ava, Ava Turner.” She stretched her hand out for a handshake.
I smiled back and shook her hand. “Brielle.”
“Thank you for keeping my sister’s company.”
“Its alright, Abby is a cutie.” I pinced Abby’s cheek causing her to pout and huff. Ava and i both chuckled at that. Me, Ava and Abby walked over to a bench and sat down while Abby played in the swings. Ava and i talked for a while, she’s really nice and carefree. I learned that she and her family just moved here. The best thing of all is that she’s going to be attending my school. I was happy when we both exchanged phone numbers cause i finally made a friend, not just any friend, a female friend!
I love Xavier, Damon and Alex but sometimes i cant help but feel out cause i dont have a female character in my life. Ava is actually the first girl that has ever smiled at me, most looks i usually receive from girls is glares or insults.” I bid goodbye to Ava and Abby before i walked over to an eatery and ordered a plate of avocado salad. My eyes dart to the clock and i nearly choked on my food. Its 7:30 freaking pm! I quickly finished up and remaining salad and i drank water. I placed the bill on the table before running out of the eatery. I reached for my phone, turning it on.
I had lots of calls and texts from the boys telling me to pick up my phone. I quickly tucked the phone in my pocket and stopped an Uber before hopping inside as i directed the driver to where am headed. When he dropped me off i paid and thanked the man, turning around and walking towards the gate. I opened it and walked to the front door, inhaling and exhaling two times.
I quietly opened the door and entered inside to see the boys all seated on the couch but i dont think they heard me enter. Alex had a scared and worried look on his face, Damon look a lille angry but worried and Xavier expression screams anger but i could see a hint of worry swirling in his eyes.
“Uh guys.” I said awkwardly and all their heads snapped up to me. Xavier got up and stormed towards me, surprising me with what he did next. He hugged me.
“I’m so glad you’re okay.” He whispered, tightening his hold on me so much, he was literary crushing my ribs.
Alex came over and hugged me. “You scared me Brielle.”
“Please dont ever make me worry like that again.” This time around it was Damon.
“You guys are so caring but seriously am fine.” I chuckled. Xavier smiled at me but it vanished quickly, morphing into a scowl. His eyes were narrowed into slits.
“Where did you go to Brielle?” I shivered at his dark tone.
“Uh i went for a walk?” It came out as a question rather than a statement.
“Alex go to your room.” Xavier ordered, not taking his eyes off mine.
“Alex.” Xavier growled threatenly. Alex gulped and walked towards the stairs but not before shooting me sad smile.
“So Brielle.” Damon started, crossing his arms. “Mind telling us where you’ve been?” Their stare was intense and intimidating which made me audibly gulp. Damon still hasn’t apologized for telling me off to Xavier, if he thinks am going to respond to his question boy is he wrong.
“Damon just asked you a question Brielle so answer!” Xavier seethed. “Where have you been?”
“I was at the park.” I blurted out. Xavier leaned down and brought his face really close to mine, his hands gripping my shoulders. “Are you lying to me Brielle?”
“No.” I squeaked, feeling my face heat up. I dont why am blushing, its either because of my squeaky voice or the fact that Xavier face is merely inches from mine, our noses almost touching. Xavier stared at me a little longer before he let go off my shoulder and faced Damon. “She’s telling the truth.” Damon just sighed and gave me a once over look. I just ignored him and made my way pass Xavier, heading towards my room. I was about closing my bedroom door when a foot was placed in between. I sighed and looked up to meet Xavier grey eyes pooling with worry and concern.
“Can i come i come in?”
“Yes.” I said bluntly. I turned around and plopped down on my bed, avoiding Xavier stare. It was quiet for a moment until Xavier sighed and walked closer to me till he was now in front of me.
“Get up Brielle.” He demanded.
“No.” I said drily.
“I’m not kidding Brielle.” Xavier stated firmly. I didn’t respond nor got up, i just remained seated, still staring at him blankly. He sighed and sat down beside me, taking my hand in his as he played with my f!ng£rs.
“Brielle.” Worry was evident in Xavier’s tone.
“Are you okay?”
I furrowed my brows in confusion, staring at him. “Of course am okay.”
“No Brielle you’re not okay.” He said calmly. Oh no he figured it out!
“What on earth are you talking about Xavier? of course am okay!” I screamed in frustration, getting up from the bed. Xavier got up and ran his f!ng£rs through his already messy hair making it more messy than before.
“Brielle.” Xavier carefully approached me, placing both his hands on my shoulders. “Talk to me Brielle, what’s wrong?” I was about to say something when he cut me off with a glare.
“And dont even think of lying cause i heard you screaming last night and i had to pin you down until you had calm down before you fell asleep again. Damon and Alex are deep sleepers so i dont think they heard you.”
“Okay.” I whispered. Xavier gave me a small smile and sat me down on the bed, sitting down beside me. I took a deep breath and started speaking up. “After you guys rescued me from Liam and Richard, some days after i started having nightmares. Sometimes its like flashbacks of when Liam used to hatefully abuse me like i was some kind of ragdoll. Then nightmares of when Richard tried to force himself on me. Gosh Xavier it was so awful, its like i cant get the image out of my head even though i want to.” As i explained Xavier kept on rubbing circles on my arm, to assure me that he is still here with me and will never allow anything or anoyone to hurt me.
“I’m scared Xavier.” I whispered, tears brimming my eyes. I tried to blink them back but they kept on falling. Xavier used his thumb to wipe my tears away, his f!ng£rs gently caressing my cheeks.
“Scared of what Brielle?” He asked softly.
“I’m scared of losing you guys cause i’ve gotten so attached to you and your brothers, i’m scared that one day you’ll just come out and say everthing was a bet or dare. I’m scared of what will happen if Liam or Richard escape from jail, i dont want him to come after you guys for siding with me and taking care of me. I dont know what i’ll do if one of you gets hurt because of me. I’m scared Xavier, am scared.” I was now a sobbing mess. Xavier instantly wrapped his arms around my sobbing form, gently stroking my hair as he whispered sweet nothings in my ear.
“Look Brielle.” Xavier pulled back from the hug, giving me a stern look.
“You’ll never lose us and this is not a prank, bet or dare. I really care about you and will hate myself if i hurt you in any way.”
“Okay.” I smiled.
“So now do you want to tell me why you skipped breakfast today?” Xavier asked, his warm breath fanning my face.
I tangled my f!ng£rs together, pursing my lips as i averted my eyes from Xavier grey ones. “Its nothing.”
Xavier gently used his index f!ng£r to lift my chin up, making me meet his stern gaze. “Tell me what’s wrong, please?”
“I’m fat.” I muttered, chewing inside my cheek.
“What?” Xavier asked with raised eyebrows, not sure if he heard me right.
“Its because am fat!” I said louder. Xavier eyes darkened and he let go off my chin and held both my wrist. “Who told you that?” He growled.
“I posted a picture my instagram account and some of the comments that people wrote was that am fat and i should lose my weight.”
Xavier sighed and let go off my wrist, pinching the bridge of his nose. “Brielle you dont listen to people harsh comments about you, you ignore them. They’re just jealous because you have what they dont.”
“So am not fat?” I asked hopefully.
“No Brielle you’re not fat, you’re perfect just the way you are so dont listen to people’s opinion about you.”
“Wow thanks for the advice Xav.” I smiled brightly at him.
“You’re welcome Brielle. No offence Brielle but sometimes you think like Damon.” Before i could ask him what that means, he quickly walked out of my room. It took me a minute to understand what Xavier said and i ran out of my room, screaming at Xavier who was bolting down the hall.
“Xavier you’re such a jerk, get back here!”
A/N i’ll go and work on the draft for the next chapter.
