THE MAIDS

SHE’S AN INTROVERT

BY EDOKPAYI SCHOLASTIC

CHAPTER 18

πŸŽ€ Mason’s p.o.v πŸŽ€

Okay, Kerryn is being weird…
I mean, she’s that girl that’s bold and smart when it comes to academics…

She has that pride whenever she walks to the front of the class ready to solve any mathematical problem even arithmetic…

But she’s changed…
She isn’t so bold anymore, she’s always so nervous like she doesn’t trust her capability anymore..

I need to find out what exactly is going on. What’s wrong with her……

The class applauded us after Mr Gethro confirmed that our work was correct.

I solved the seventh one that Kerryn was supposed to solve and it was even the simplest question….

Then why couldn’t she solve something as simple as that algebraic expression??
I’m so curious!

It’s lunch time and Kerryn didn’t return to the class ever since what happened in Math class……..

I climbed the stairs going to the fifth floor where we normally do hangout sometimes during recess……

There, I found her sitting on a long bench and staring down and watching students who were at the field……

Seems she noticed my presence, she turned and faced me…..

“Hey.” I called but she just took her gaze down the stairs…

I walked to where she sat and sat beside her….

“Kerryn.” I called as I stared at her.

“I’ve been having a hard time at home. There’s something going on at home and it’s making me all worked up.

I don’t even get to study after school because my mind is pretty preoccupied lately.

I don’t know what to do..
I’m just hoping and waiting for everything to die down so I can go back to studying my books. I know everybody including you are wondering why I’m not doing well in school recently, why I’m not as smart as before.

I want you to know that it’s because of what I’m facing at home.” She muttered in tears as she faced me, holding my hands….

“It’s okay Kerryn. Even if I don’t entirely understand what you are talking about or what you are passing through, I want you to know that everything is gonna be fine.” I cooed as I placed her head on my shoulders…

She wrapped her hands around my neck and sniffed…

“Thank you Mason.” She said, still sniffing……..

“It’s okay.” I said.

“Let’s have lunch together….” I said after she had stopped crying and wiped her tears.

“Sure.” She retorted with a small smile….

I held her hands in mine as we stood up and walked down the stairs……..

What gave her the idea or thought that I was gonna ask her questions concerning her low performance of recent? I thought but then I waved it off…

The important thing is that she has explained herself and I totally believe her……..

I just hope whatever she’s passing through comes to an end …….

🌷 Kerryn’s p.o.v 🌷
I’m such a drama queen…..
A good actress and I need some accolades for my good acting skills…..

I just have to put on a facade to make Mason not to have any doubts concerning my poor academics of recent since Monique’s absence..

Part of me knew that he was going to come look for me and ask questions..

Thank goodness, I was able to think through and lie to him.
No doubt that he believes my cooked up lie……..

πŸ’Ž Monique’s p.o.v πŸ’Ž

I stood gisting with with three maids in the kitchen as they prepared lunch…..

I stood washing the plates we had used to eat not quite long in the sink.

I didn’t want to use the dishwasher so that I won’t get to leave the kitchen quick.

I was enjoying my chats with them and they are very friendly……

I and Mason stayed in the balcony and talked..
He told me about school and it wasn’t really boring…

I told him the activities I did when he wasn’t around and he was so surprised when he knew that I got to finish the whole novel even before lunch..

According to him, he ended the novel on the second day… He read the novel for two days…..

When it was midnight, we said goodnight to each other and retired to bed…

🌷 Kerryn’s p.o.v 🌷

I fumed in anger as pieces of my note book poured out from my locker..

There was a yellow card and a written note.
“It isn’t a threat Kerryn. I have ruined a relationship with Mason before and I won’t think twice to ruin yours.

But since you’re been so stubborn and adamant, I would have to hurt you.

I’m dangerous Kerryn! Don’t think everybody loves you.
Don’t ruin my plans to get back together with Mason.

Stay away from Mason, Kerryn Lorenzo!. From anonymous.” The letter read.

Who the hell is this person?!
She’s really getting on my nerves……

I took my books and headed back to the classroom……

Nothing much happened in class today.
No questions and I was glad……

Mason talked to the class on my behalf concerning what I told him the previous day and they understood…

I got home and told Mom about the letter from the anonymous but she told me not to bother about it.

“It’s just an empty threat….” She had said while I nodded in agreement…

I don’t even know whom to suspect..
Wait!
Could it be Mason’s ex?
And Mason’s ex is Sophia but she’s my friend ; a very close one at that….

I trust that she can’t even hurt a fly…….

But I’m seriously so confused……..

πŸ’Ž Monique’s p.o.v πŸ’Ž

Nothing much happened today.
I and Mason went to the hospital together and my head bandage was changed..

My head doesn’t hurt much….
The doctor said I might regain my memory in two weeks but if I see anything familiar, it might be a week ….

I just can’t wait to regain my memory and know my past.
How exactly I lived…..

I’m really very grateful to Mason’s kindness.
I haven’t even started performing my role and duties as a maid to him…

He said till I’m fully recovered and I’m grateful for that….

🌷 Kerryn’s p.o.v 🌷

I got to school and said hi to everybody…
They smiled at me and none seems suspicious…..

I walked to my locker and opened it…
There wasn’t any pieces that poured on the floor and I was glad……

But there was write-ups with red pen all over my locker….
Skeletons were also designed inside the locker with red marker or something…

Then a red sticker which a skull was drawn on top was stuck on my locker edge….

I nearly screamed my lungs out!!!!
I couldn’t even read the paintings on my locker.
There wasn’t any letter too.

I quickly went back to the class in fear and I made up my mind to tell Mason about it.

Who the hell is this anonymous person?

I’m gonna tell him during lunch time. I thought.

It was almost lunch time and I was pressed…

I excused myself to go use the restroom…..
I got to the restroom and emptied my bladder……

After I was done, I washed my hands in the sink…
As I made to leave, I saw a person ; a huge man clad in overall black……
He had a black mask on and a small knife was in his right hand..

My heart beat accelerated as I feared the worse….
I was so scared and I wished the ground would swallow me up at that moment…..

“I’m gonna scream! And what do hell do you want from me?!” I yelled trying to sound bold but my voice only came out in a quiver……

He advanced towards me and I let out a loud shout……
But seems my voice isn’t loud enough….

“Please, don’t! Please, I beg of you don’t hurt me. I will give you whatever you want.” I pleaded in tears….

I would have long ran away but the fact that the man is so close to me and he’s intimidating made me stand rooted at one spot and not moving……..

And the way he’s so close to me, there’s no room to escape…

Before I could even say *jack* or lift a finger, I felt a sharp pain in my stomach..

He had stabbed me in the stomach with the small knife in his hand..

I fell on the floor as I held my stomach in pain…

The assassin turned and walked out in long strides…..
Leaving me in the pool of my blood…….

I tried calling for help but my voice wasn’t loud….

I held my bleeding stomach as I laid sprouted on the floor gradually slipping into unconsciousness………

To be continued….

Who’s this person?
Our Kerryn has been stabbed!!!

Who’s gonna save her now?😭😭
Even if she’s a bitch, I seriously don’t want her to die…..
What about you?
The unknown is gonna be unveiled in the next chapter..
