💞 SHE’S AN INTROVERT 💞
BY EDOKPAYI .E. SCHOLASTIC
💎 Monique’s p.o.v 💎
The students were still serving their punishments but some of the boys have already been realeased.
“Hey.” I heard his voice, my rescurer.
I didn’t turn or reply.
He sat beside me where I sat watching the students.
I adjusted a little giving us a reasonable amount of space in between.
” Can’t you talk?” He asked calmly.
“I can. I’m not just used to talking to someone or people.” I managed to reply after minutes of uncomfortable silence.
“I see.” He muttered.
“But why are the students serving punishment’s?” I asked as I fondled with my fingers not staring at him.
“Because of what happened this morning.” He retorted plainly…… While I nodded my head understandably…..
“By the way, what’s your name?” He asked. I chewed on my bottom lip nervously as I took a quick glance at him.
“My name is Monique.” I replied staring at my shoes.
“Nice name. I’m Mason.” He said with a smile.
Wait!! Did he just smile?
I mean, I have never seen him smile and he looks very cute.
I diverted my gaze back to my legs when he caught me staring at him.
“You don’t need to be weak. You should try and stand up for yourself and stop allowing fellow students like you bully you.” He said and stood up, then he walked away.
It is easier said than done.
How I wish I can really stand up for myself like the way he said it but I just don’t have the guts.
All the students were finally released and Kerryn wouldn’t stop staring daggers at me..
Like seriously, I’m not the one whoordered her and other students to be punished…..
Anyways, it serves her right……..
It was lunch break and thankfully this time around, I ate without any disturbance.
I’m sure the punishments did teach them a big lesson.
I just hope they wouldn’t bother me again.
🌷 Kerryn’s p.o.v 🌷
I bursted into tears as I stepped into the house.
I cried loudly as mom rushed to me.
” Kerryn, what is it? Why are you crying?” Mom asked perturbed…..
I didn’t answer but wailed loudly and placed my head on her chest.
“Monique caused it. She made me kneel for hours with an apple on my head.
Now my kneel hurts.
Mom, I didn’t offend her, I didn’t do anything wrong to her but she had the guts to lie on me.” I wailed loudly…..
” I knew it!! I knew it was that useless and motherless girl that’s making you cry.
She’s so gonna regret her life today.” Mom said angrily and I smiled in between my tears…
I wiped my tears pouting as I stared at her.
“Mom, let me deal with her personally.” I said with a pout.
“Okay. Go take your bath and come down for dinner.” She said and patted my head softly.
“Okay mom.” I said and pecked her cheeks before scuttling to my room happily.
I’m such a good actress……….
Monique is so gonna cry today.
💎 Monique’s p.o.v 💎
I entered into my room with a heavy sigh.
Closing the door behind me, I was startled as hell as I stared at my step mom and her grinning daughter, Kerryn.
“Good evening Cass.” I greeted as I made my way to my bed but as usual she ignored me.
Okay, why is she in my room with Kerryn?
I didn’t do anything wrong this time around and I wonder what they have up their sleeves.
” You had the gut right? You made Kerryn serve punishments on her second day of school.
Do you wanna taint her reputation so quickly huh?” Cassandra’s voice suddenly came up as I tried to make my way to the bathroom.
I ignored her rantings and went to the bathroom….
After taking my bath, I came out and then went to my wardrobe.
After wearing my clothes, I was still surprised to see Cass and Kerryn still in my room.
” Okay, what do you guys want?” I asked as I crossed my hands akimbo.
Kerryn moved closer to the door and locked it then withrew the keys leaving me stunned and confused….
She walked towards me and landed a deafening slap across my face.
I held my flushed cheeks in pain as I stared angrily at her.
” What was that for?” I asked.
“Don’t think of trying anything stupid.
Kerryn is gonna do anything she wants with you for making her serve punishments in school today. I’m just gonna seat and watch.” Cass said with a smirk.
Kerryn withrew a csin from under my bed and whip my butt soundly.
“Arrrrghhhhhh!!” I groaned in pain as another lash landed on my butt……..
Why don’t you do something? Retaliate or she’s gonna kill you. My subconsciousness told me.
And if I should retaliate, my step mom would kill me and I don’t want to add to the pain ik feeling.
Kerryn whipped me twelve times and my butt was starting to hurt badly.
I don’t think I would be able to seat with my butt for a month.
I fell on my knees and wept bitterly after she was done.
She had a triumphant smile on her face.
She took my uniform and before my very own eyes, she shredded it into pieces.
She took my shoes and also used scissors to leave holes on them that they can’t be patched or sewn on any longer.
After she was done, she left with her mother leaving me in pains.
I managed to crawl to my bed and laid on my belly.
I held my shredded uniform and wept…………..
To be continued…
What will our Monique wear to school the next day???
