“The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.”
– Kahlil Gibran
Our life becomes entangled with many things but let me tell you something. My life has become a hell of maze. My adoptive father tends to be overprotective with a lot of things. Today was one of those days, is my first day of my third semester he gave a self defense key chain. Also bought me a new phone where his can be connected to my somehow. Since I arrived at my dorm room, he had called me like 4 times already. “yes dad, is a dorm room for one person.”
“I worried, so take care. Call me when you need me, ok?” his worriedness had become too much.
“yes, I call you in the morning, is already late. I have an early class.” After he hung up, I went to change to get in bad. He had worried too much, but it was all my fault. A week before someone came to visit, so I thought it new dad, but it was the worst thing I could ever do for now.
“what are you doing here!” his rage caught me off guard, he storms at the person as the moment he saw him.
“dad I thought you new him or were friends, he said it was an old friend.” He was mad, I never saw him like that. He was always the cool dad; he was calm.
“Ana go to your room!” I only listened, I could her him screaming at the person. After that I did not hear anything more. He came to my room; he was calm now. “I am sorry, but I need you to understand that you are safe with me.” I only nodded.
After that he became overprotective, at least I was not the sociable person. I do not have to many friends. I don’t go out too much just to my part time job and back to the dorm. Well at least I will start a new semester without having dad calling every five minutes.
First day here I go. I really hate morning classes but let be positive the professor is not a witch. She always the best of them all, I had 4 classes with her in all the year. Is a pro-student, she helps us in anyway because we must make her proud in the future.” If a professor makes you go the hard way is because they do not want you to succeed and take their job.” Well, is true in a way. The classroom was already full, there was an empty seat next to a guy I never seen in the whole year. There is no other seat. I went there, I just have a glimpse of the guy and ignore him for the rest of the class. I felt watched but no one was looking at me in the moment. I must be going crazy right now. I ignore the feeling for the rest of the class. I had a free period so I could go get something to eat. I was walking on the empty halls, I felt someone following. Well, am I becoming my dad now? I turn to see who it was and only scream. The guy from earlier was right behind me, like close.
“sorry, I was calling you, but you seem distracted. You left this on the classroom.” He was calm, unbothered. He was holding my jacket.
“no, is ok. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have screamed.” I take my jacket. “I am Ana.”
“Athan.” I look at him, he was tall compared to my 5’4” frame. Pretty blue eyes, a little pale and jet-black hair. “huh… I should head to my next class” shit I must look like a creep.
“yeah, sure. Sorry for holding you.” He nods and leaves. I just still stare where he went, girl get a hold of yourself. I must gone crazy what is wrong with me, yeah he is hot but stop. He must think I am a crazy thirsty bitch. Well, I need my daily iced coffee. My dear coffee.
Can someone tell me why the common area is hell of calm and empty, did something happened, and I am the only on this world? I go to my favorite spot. It was a corner where not many go, is the perfect spot for reading or take quick nap. I set my thing on the small table and get my phone out. Having a new phone is annoying, trying to set things up again. I must have been there setting my phone for a while because someone was standing beside me.
“Damnit” I cuss I almost drop my phone. “Sorry, Hi.”
“you must be Ana?” she smiles. I nod, I swear I will punch that smile out of this blonde chick.
“I am, how did you know?” I ask her, she looks at me like if I am oblivious.
“you are very different here.” She keeps smiling. Yeah I am the only red hair full of freckle girl here. They do call me Merida darling. I thought sarcastically. “is your hair really that color or do you do it on a beauty salon?” I can tell she came to fuck around.
“well do you want to check in the bathroom for that?” I blurt that out, she was taking back by it.
“oh well mine is natural as well.” Basic bitch. “well, my friends find you a little outstanding, and she don’t want you around of the new guy.” I looked at her with disbelief. “so please don’t call his attention like right now.”
“why don’t you disappear from my view before I snatch your damn extensions.” Her smile faded into a glare and went back to her friends.
Who the fuck is this bitch, they must be freshman. I saw Athan smirking for the distance. Was he listening or something? Well I have more things to do than get distracted on boys.
