""Charlene Roberts! Will you hurry up! I need the bathroom, NOW! I am running late for work." Jessica shouted at me.
"OK! I am coming out now." I grumbled. She is always rushing me. I walked out of the toilet dressed in a soft blue shirt and dark blue jeans. My name is Charlene Roberts. I have an older sister Jessica, "Jess". She's four years older than me and we are very close. I am slightly taller than average and quite slim. No boyfriends yet. I am still waiting for the right one.
Jess has graduated just graduated from university and is currently working as stocks/shares adviser, I don't have a clue as to what exactly she does, but it seems to involve very flexible working hours and high pay. We often go shopping together to buy clothes and accessories.,
I also have some very close friends, best friends since secondary school- Kyra "Ky" Tanners, Anne Hathaway and Elizabeth "Liz" Chandler. Ky is of average height and have short hair cut in a trendy bob. Anne is short and have long hair down to the middle of her back while Liz is tall and have long hair too. As for me, I have layered shoulder length hair and slightly taller than average. We are all Asians so what colour hair/eyes do we have?
Mom called "Girls breakfast is ready! I've got to leave for work now." It was 7am. Dad is a work from home artist. Mom is the finance manager of her company, so we are quite well-to-do. I made ham and eggs sandwiches. Jess came rushing down madly, searching for her car keys. I calmly passed her her keys and put a sandwich into her hands. She is always in a rush in the mornings while I am not.
I walked out of the house to the bus stop, where Ky and Liz are waiting for me. We went to school together. Anne and I are in the same class while Liz and Ky are not. Shit! I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to do my chemistry homework. Miss Zelda is going to kill me! Out of all my subjects, I hated chemistry the most. I am currently taking Biology, Maths, English and Chemistry of course. It makes no sense to me, all those funny reactions and stuff that we have to know. Biology is interesting but involves lots of memory work. Sometimes I really regret taking advanced classed sometimes.
Chemistry lecture is really boring. Anne and I are dozing off. Miss Zelda droned on. "….organic chemistry…" After chemistry, finally it's time to go home. Before we went home Anne, Ky, Liz and I always go to Candy Café. They sell awesome food! You name it, they have it.
"Hey guys, what do you want?" Ky asked.
"Burger with Fried Fries and Coke"
"Waffles with peanut butter with green tea"
"Pancakes with honey and maple syrup and cold milk" were the replies.
"Right, I will have the same as you, Liz." I grinned. Ky and Liz usually have the same taste.
Our food arrived quickly and I doved in. Hmmm I love the honey and maple syrup! I pulled out my iPhone and texted Mom,Dad and Jess.
'Want anything fm CC?"
The replies came quickly.
'No thanks' From Mom and Dad
'Onion rings' Jess.
"Kay" I texted back.
After I got her onion rings, i went back home. To my surprise, Mom was already home and preparing dinner-spaghetti. Jess reached home soon after and we munched on onion rings while watching Dad paint in his art studio.
Mom has been looking frazzled and stressed recently, so we decided to take over the preparation of dinner.
"Thanks Jess, Char." She smiled gratefully at us.
After a delicious dinner, I went to my room to do homework-the dreaded Collision theory-chemical reactions occur only if reaction particles undergo collisions that take place with the least amount of energy and have correct geometry blah blah boring. After struggling and finally finishing everything at 11pm, I decided to go to bed.I finish my usual bedtime routine-combing my hair neatly before sleeping. Anne once asked me, what's the point of brushing your hair before you go to bed as it's going to get messed up anyway? I didn't have a reply to that,just shrugged and said I like it.
Just as I was about to go to sleep, I heard someone's voice. I am curious as my bedroom is in a quiet corner of the house near the storeroom. I wondered, who at home could be talking at such a late hour? I wanted to find out so I tiptoed to my door and listened.
"No, I can't bear it anymore." Mom's voice. What is she talking about? I was mystified
"I really hate her, why is she still alive? She is a jinx. A jinx to us all! "
The sound of soft sobs. Silence. Mom must have walked away. I decided to follow her. Quietly, i opened my door and saw a shadowy figure slipping out to the living room, where the front door is. I knew of a faster way to get out of the house- through my window.
I quickly went into my room,wore my slippers and opened the window. I then placed a stool under the window and vaulted out.
Silently, I walked behind Mom, keeping to the shadows, freezing when she stopped. She was still mumbling and gesturing to herself. She walked to a tree by the roadside and kneeled down. I felt surprised and curious about what she was doing.
She started sobbing and ranting about a girl."She should have been dead when she was born. She ruined my life from the moment she was born. I will never forgive her. NEVER EVER!"
My eyes widened with shock and tears.
"Mom?" My voice trembled
She turned, her eyes were filled with hatred and disgust. Voice dripping with sarcasm.
"Oh, it's the little jinx i was talking about a moment ago. You can go to hell right now."
The sheer force of her hatred and disgust shook me to my very core. Squeezing my eyes shut, I asked. "Why?"
Her reply filled me with unimaginable feelings. Sadness. Hurt. Confusion.
I felt an unbelievable burst of pain and the last thing i saw was her leering face.
"Now maybe you will begin to atone for your mistake"
I fell into a blissful black void.
