💅 THE BET 🎗️






“How could you Lene?! How could you?!” Mom rasped angrily.

“Mom please, don’t shout at me.

I’m a grown up and I can do whatever I want.

I’m eighteen for crying out loud!!” I yelled angrily.

“How dare you?!” Mom yelled and smacked my face hard.

I held my cheek as I stared unbelievably at my mom.

She looked so shocked as she stared agape at me.

“Mom, you slapped me?” I asked, barely audible.

“I’m so sorry Charlene. You pushed me to.

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to.” She said remorsefully and tried to touch me but I took a step backward.

I bursted into tears holding my cheek and ran upstairs.

“Baby, I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to.” She called out to me but I ignored her.

For the first time in my life mom slapped me.

It hurts!

It does hurt!

All because of that girl Paisley!

Don’t think it’s over Paisley, I would definitely get back at you.

I would make you regret ever crossing paths with me and humiliating me.

Just you wait Paisley!



All because of her I had to leave my dream high school to another.

Jeremy even broke up with me that day everything was revealed and he even blocked my number because I tried calling him.

I couldn’t go back to the school because of the stigma and humiliation.

It’s better I ain’t there when the discussion would be going on.

I really do love Jeremy but I was just blinded by greed to have two guys at the same time.

Jeremy never made any attempt to kiss me or even have sex with me.

But Jason approached me and confessed his feelings to me and even kissed me.

He bought me a silver bracelet where as, Jeremy has never bought anything for me except pay for my lunch at school.

I didn’t want to break up with Jeremy and I still wanted to be with Jason.

So, I had the two guys together.

If only that pest didn’t ruin everything.

I so much hate her!

I would surely get back at her.

It’s not over yet Paisley, I would surely and definitely get back at you!

I laid on my bed and cried my eyes out.




I’ve gotten over the betrayal of Jason and he apologized.

He knelt before me in front of our clique that is, I, Jayden and Javier. And apologized to me.

Well, I couldn’t stay angry with him forever and so, I forgave him.

Besides, he was given a two week suspension which made him have enough time to have a rethink and become remoserful.

Thank goodness Charlene has been transferred to another school.

I broke up with her too.

Jason had served his two weeks suspension and he’s back but he failed our first CA test because he was still on suspension when we wrote the test.



Paisley has returned to that cool and quiet girl she used to be.

She even has a friend, Daisy and they hangout alot together.

But that isn’t my business.

Like, it’s non of my business.

Well, I hadn’t forgotten about my revenge on her and I’ll definitely carry it on her.

I just need a little more time to think more of a good plan.



Over the weeks, I and Daisy and become really very close.

We hangout alot too and we literally do almost everything together.

She’s nice and has a good sense of humor.

I really do like her.

During our CA test that commenced three days ago, we did well.

But I did exceptionally well.

She’s intelligent but not as I am.

During recess, we read our books and sometimes, we read novels.



“So Leah, I’ve been meaning to ask you this question.

And I hope you don’t get mad at me.

I just want to satisfy my curiosity.” Daisy suddenly said as we ate lunch together.

I dropped my cutleries and stared at her.

“What is it? Go on and ask.” I said.

“But promise me you aren’t gonna get mad at me.

You won’t flare up.” She pouted with cute puppy eyes.

“Yeah, I promise.”

She breathed in and out nervously and drank water before spilling out the question.

“What happened before that you were afraid of having a friend? Did something bad happen to you before with a friend of yours?” She asked calmly.

I stared wide eyed at her and cleared my throat repeatedly.

I didn’t think I was gonna tell anyone what happened before.

It’s something I don’t want to ever remember or talk about.

“It’s fine if you don’t wanna talk about it.

I just thought that I could know what happened.

But it’s okay.” She said and smiled.

But I could tell she was sad.

“C’mon eat. Don’t think much into it if you don’t wanna talk about it.

I’ll wait till you open up to me. Till you’re ready to tell me.” She said when she noticed I wasn’t eating but staring into space.

She smiled lightly and touched my hand.

“I’ll tell you.” I suddenly blurted out and her countenance brightened immediately….

She beamed and sat properly, eager to hear what I was gonna say.

“Well……” I began after few seconds of an interrupted silence….


Who else wants to know why Paisley didn’t want to have a friend again?🤔.

You won’t believe what happened 😏😏.

Let’s find out in the next chapter 😁…
