Chapter 1

My name’s Nikolai or Niko. Sounds pretty cool right, my name seems to have been a mistake. I was born with a rare condition that disfigured me. It affected my face and split my lip and my jaw didn’t develop well so I wasn’t handsome. My parents are filthy rich and it comes in handy but I always got bullied so my parents decided to move me to a new school, I knew It would still continue, I mean the bullying but at least it would reduce cause they wouldn’t know that I’m an over privileged ugly guy.


I sat in my car rethinking my choice to go to school, I could just wait till I turned 19 so I could have the surgery done, I mean it’s two years away, but I know that’s not what I want for myself. I plan to be a better CEO than my father ever was and slacking wouldn’t get me there. Who cares if I don’t have a girlfriend or I get bullied? I have to go. I pulled up my hoodie turned on the ignition of my car and drove off.


Henrietta’s P.O.V

I got down from my car and walked into school. Princeton High was like every other high school with the social groups and all and I happened to be a cheerleader. My locker came into view and I smiled at my boyfriend who was waiting patiently for me as always.

“Hello handsome.” I cooed with a smile and kissed him.

“Hey love how was your weekend?” he asked and I shrugged. “Same as usual hanging out and studying.”

He rolled his eyes dramatically. “Ok what now?”, I asked.

“Babe you didn’t come to my party.”,he sighed resting on my locker neighbor's locker.

I sighed and pulled out my needed note, textbook and project paper. “I’m sorry but you have to understand okay, I don’t have it easy like most of you, I have to get this scholarship that’s why I never come to your parties.” I answered and we began walking. He stuffed his hands into his pocket with a sigh. “Yeah, sure.”

“I’m sorry, okay.”

He smiled and nodded and I smiled back. “And um babe?”

“Hmm.," I hummed.

We stopped at my History class door. “Kim was looking for you, she said you’ve been slacking off on cheerleading practice.”

I raised a brow “She’s in school?”

“No, she texted me.”

I stared into his hazel eyes for a moment then smiled. “Ok, see ya.” I gave him one last peck before stepping into class and few seconds later the starting bell rang. I chuckled wishing I could see Jonah (my boyfriend) run to his class on the other side of school.

luckybean: Yay for Tate, the little ones and the fox. It is crazy to be subjected to the many ways that we humans hurt one another or others. Our selfishness seemed to be unparalleled. I hope that there are more good people than bad in every situation - these books and reality.
