They are in the dormitory. They will soon
knock on our door, don open it" we heard
senior Eiras voice instruct us.
What the hell was wrong with this senior?
She thought she was the boss perhaps?
Finally, the school was taking a step towards
finding a way to save the students and curb
the whole virus pandemic but she wanted
us to not open the door. To go against the
rules and jeopardize the whole situation the
wish I could go over to pull her ears and
instruct her to stop being a bad girl. Her
mother would not be proud to hear her
daughter who was the top student in the
school was advising the school juniors into
breaking the school rules and not following
"What are you saying? And you
supposed to be our senior?" Mia crossed
her hands across her chest and gave the
senior a scolding look.
"The school would not be proud to hear a
senior, a top student at that was promoting
rebellion amidst the juniors" Mackenzie
The girls spoke my mind! God bless them!
I had to say something, I needed to say
something. "Your mama won be proud too"
I twisted my head and squeezed my face at
her to show my disgust.
The girls both turned to me "Medusa, really?
" they chorused.
Okay what have I done wrong again, was it
bad to support their motion?
"What?" I blurted in wonder.
"Very nice of you to remind someone of
their mother whom they haven seen in
years," Mia said to me sternly. She sounded
like my mama, it felt like one of mamas
"its fine Ive seen her occasionally When I
go on missions. I never fail to go visit her,
even if it was from afar. Im good, I finish my
missions early so I usually had time to
spare for visits" senior Eira shrugged. She
sounded sad, so even a strong lady like her
could fold. Nice to know she was still a
human and had some emotions left in her.
After what she did with the door, I thought
she had lost all the humanity left in her. A
normal person would not be so carefree
about leaving someone to die.
"Even on the last visit? You went to visit her
still?" Mias voice broke my thought. She
"I did not, we finished the mission late this
time" she answered in a low tone.
I saw Mia sigh heavily while putting a hand
on her chest. " Oh thank the Lord, what if
you went and the infected boy go with you?
You would have jeopardized her life. Thats
the thing about following rules, the rules
were there for a reason. Go on missions,
don go visiting parents!" Mia hollered
again. Scolding the senior like she was a
little girl. Mia can be such a talkative! Uhm...
I know, Im talkative too, so what?
I knew if it wasn for the situation of things,
Mia would have gotten herself in trouble for
speaking to a senior that way. Worst, she
might not only put herself in trouble she
might get us included too and we would be
awarded yet another week of after-class
chores. I would not forgive her.
The way you got them in trouble too and
the way you got them loads of after classes
chores also, a voice in my head whispered
No! The situation was different, I was only
trying to help while Mia was being arrogant
because she always feel her opinion
surpasses others opinions. It was two different Scenarios, I shushed the voice away. I refused to be taunted by a mocking inner
voice, I almost say out loud.
Senior Eira was not a person of patience,
that much was clear. With the way she
teleported to Mia and grabbed her hair,
while gazing at her with deadly gazes.
Poor Mia, she had lost her glasses. She
couldn even see well but she knew how to
run her mouth to the wrong people. She was now reaping the benefits of running ones mouth
anyhow and anywhere.
The way youll reap yours too, the voice
whispered again. I almost slapped my head
in annoyance, why was the voice in my
head messing with me?
What was it anyway? It was whispering to
me and it felt real. Could that be my powers
? Ability to speak to an unknown voice in
your head? I am turning 18 in less than 3
weeks. Maybe that was it, symptoms of
developing your ability.
But then, how sillier can I get? Who gets
the power of speaking to a voice in their
heads? Nobody right? Good, discard my
"I never got near my mum whenever I go on
random visits while on missions like that. I
stay a reasonable distance away. Do you
know how that feels? She doesn even
know who l am, I see her live her life happily
without me, I saw my dad too and my
siblings living happily without me being in
their lives while I was miserable they
weren in mine any longer but then, I still
had to go. Do you know what that feels like?
"Senior Eira spitted and pulled Mias hair
" Just say you
e sorry Mia" Mackenzie
" Im... Im sorry!" She screeched in a
I felt like her sorry was either from
Mackenzies advice or the pain she felt
from the pulling of her by the senior. I know
Mia, she might not even feel remorseful at
I actually felt the buried pain of the senior
and the unsaid words that hid behind her
spoken words and the hot tears that were
supposed to flow down her cheeks which
she blocked away from with the deadly look
she was shooting at Mia.
Sometimes, it was better to cry and let it all
out instead of being strong and stocking all
the pain in. That way, we would have real peace. I wanted to say to her but what if she
misinterprets it and decides it was my hair
she would pull next? Or maybe my bangs or
maybe she would break my legs. Oh no,
those were my points of pride. If I lost them,
how would I still have the hope of seducing
senior Oliver? How would I be able to raise
my head up high and talk to the annoying
Oh Medusa, why did you think of that
annoying senior with a feminine name
Anyway, I couldn bring my thoughts to
words so, I kept quiet.
I do not think Senior Eira had any thoughts of
releasing Mia anytime soon as she still had
the bloody look in her eyes while her golden brown irises fixated on Mias darting one.
A knock diverted our attention and she
let go of Mia.
Remember how I said Mias hair was so
scattered and looked unkept before? Good,
the unkept look had now taken a triple pace.
Now, she basically looked like a girl on
Halloween as her hair stood above her head
scattered in multiple strands.
She quickly used her fingers to comb the
hair down and swallowed while moving
toward the door. She was probably thinking
it was her time to retaliate as the senior had
said not to open the door. She was going to
open the door.
"Don " senior Eira stopped her in her tracks
with a whisper.
"Why shouldn I?" She said almost shouting, intentionally wanting to alert the people
"Shhh" the senior touched her lips "Don
open the door, lets Iay low, and then they will
go away thinking the room had no occupants. They do not have the time to
waste on one room" she reasoned.
She doesn want us to open the door, there
must be a reason.
"Why?" I whispered.
"There is no time to explain that now." She
turned to me.
"I am getting the door, you heard the
instruction from the school authority, they
said to open the door to get tested" I saw
the stop being a bitch that Mia couldn say
out loud dangling around her words.
"Ok, if you want to get the door, its just you
three if they ask. Im getting out of here" Senior Eira said at last after an ugly silence.
The silver-haired girl had warned us and we
didn listen, now we were in this mess
instead of laying comfortably in our beds
back in our hostel. Currently, senior Eira was
warning us too what if something bad
happens because we refused to listen
"Wait, Ill go with you" I ran to Senior Eira
surprising Mia as she glared at me
disappointedly but she managed to
maintain a composed face.
I could tell she was expecting me to be on
Surprisingly, "Wait!" Mackenzie said also "
I will go too then "
Now its the both of us with senior Eira,
leaving Mia the only one not supporting the
"Mia?" I called her persuasively, she needed
to rethink her decision.
She gulped loudly to our hearings, I could
tell she was on the verge of crying. "Just..
go" she finally said her voice breaking and
hands on the door handle.
"Very well then" senior Eira said and took
mine and Mackenzies hands in hers before
teleporting us out of the room.
