This story is officially written By: Faith Lucky.
Did she just mention school??
I’ll be going to school??
“What now, mum? What new development is this? What’ school are you talking about??” The son asked ridiculously, like he was really angry.
“I know what I’m doing, Xavier. Okay?” The woman rolled her eyes and looked at me.
“Delaney, where you come from, do you have a school over there where you were taught how to read and write?” She asked.
“Um….actually, yes. We had a mini school were we taught the 26 alphabets, how to write on leafs with inks, and how to read as well. I have a wide knowledge” I replied.
“So..you can read??” The woman asked and I nodded.
“Okay. Can you….read this out?” She brought out a….what is this?
She placed it in front of me and although, the object looked really strange, I just focused on the letters there.
“The….Full….meaning….of geography” I read out and her eyes beamed in excitement.
“Oh my gosh! Xavier!! Can you see that???” she chuckled and closed the object but the son only scoffed.
“She can read, Xavier!! I told you! She’s fit for school!”
“Mum, this lady should be in kindergarten ” he disparaged her idea.
“Come on, Xavier. She’s way too old for Kindergarten. I just need to speed her up, okay? Don’t worry, I have my own way of doing it. Since she’ll be going to your school, I’ll assign special teachers to her on some occasions. She’s also going to have a home teacher. So….”
“Seriously?” He scoffed.
“You’re going to break the protocols of education?” The son asked.
“Don’t worry about it, Xavier. I’ve got it all handled, okay?” She rolled her eyes again.
why’re they so fond of that?
“So, Delaney; you would want to go to school, right?” She turned to me and asked and I gulped nervously before nodding.
So, I’ll be in the midst of so many different people?
“That’s great. So, we’ll be going shopping this morning. And by tomorrow, you should be in school already. Right?” she asked with smiles and the son scoffed.
She was about saying something else when something on the table started ringing.
“Excuse me” she mumbled and left.
Now, I was left with just the son.
I lowered my gaze to my plate and continued eating with my hands.
“Hey you;” he growled and I looked up at him.
“If you know what’s good for you, just tell her you aren’t interested, okay? Tell her you don’t wanna go to school”.
“Wh….Why?” I wondered.
“Seriously?? Don’t ask me lame questions,okay? Tell her to take you to Kindergarten”.
I paused when a pretty looking lady walked in.
“Xavier!!” She shrieked and ran in
The *Xavier* also turned to look at her and a smile touched his lips.
“Hey, bae. What’s up?” He stood up and hugged her.
“I’m fine and you?” She chuckled and suddenly drifted her eyes to me.
“Who’s she?” She asked with a glare.
“Come on, Antonio. What’re you trying to say? What do you mean it doesn’t have value?” I grouse as I stood in front of the man I intended selling the necklace to.
He was telling me sh*t like it wasn’t important and all that.
“I’m telling you, Alicia. I’ve never seen something like this before. It looks more like a toy. I’m not sure anyone would want to buy it. But…to be considerate and since you actually need money, I can offer five dollars” he replied.
“Whaaat?? What the heck??? Five what?? Are you kidding me or what?? What on earth am I gonna do with five dollars??”
“That’s the deal, Alicia. Leave it or take it” he said brusquely and walked away, going to fix somethings in the shop.
Hmph. How rude.
I lifted the necklace and stared at it.
Why do I have a feeling its actually important?
I could recall how desperately that lady had been searching for it that night.
It looks useless..but also looks special.
I’ll just keep it to myself and find a better buyer. I can’t sell it for five dollars. That’s impossible.
I walked all the way home, feeling so tired and hungry. Gosh! I couldn’t believe I just wasted my time for nothing.
Nothing at all.
I yawned as I got into the house and sat on a chair to rest my back.
Where’s mother and granny anyway? Please, just tell me they’ve cooked something already.
I yawned again and was about standing up when something from the TV gripped my attention.
The scholarship results!!!
They were announcing the results at the moment.
My eyes widened in shock as I stared at the names being displayed on the screen and immediately, I screamed.
I sprang on my feet and started jumping.
“I made it!!!!”
“I made it!!!!!!
“I’ve been admitted into Xavier Classic High School.
