I was in my room crying, I had cried myself to sleep last night, I woke up thinking they would have opened the door but it was still locked and I was very hungry.
“I’m sorry, please open up” I cried but nobody answered my dad had left for a conference last week and won’t be back until the end of the month and the maids were not allowed to open the door, who’s going to help me now
“Diamond” I heard someone calling from downstairs, wait is that not my dad, what’s he doing at home
“Dad, help me” I cried, not long after I heard the door being opened from outside and my dad came in, I ran to him and hugged him while crying
I was at the diner eating and watching my Dad, he was very angry I could tell. He and my mom, wait is she my mom?, Well he and his wife had quarrelled today because of me and I was scared right now, what’s if he gets angry at me with what I’m about to ask, well I won’t know if I don’t try.
” Dad” I called and he looked at me softly. ” Uhm, I would like to go to school” I said
” I’m sorry baby, but you can’t”
“Is it because I’m mad”
“No, it’s just that.., okay which school do you have in mind”
“Uhm, the school sister Clarissa attends, uhm Starz high”
” Okay but if you must go, you’re going to go with fifty guards” he said
” Ten guards” I negotiated
“Forty” he countered
“Thirty and that’s final” he said
” Deal” I said and shook his hands while he smiled
” I’m really sorry I can’t be here all the time but I promise to always be here when you need me, okay?” He asked and I nodded.
It was Monday and my dad had leave for work again, but not before enrolling me to Starz high, so I was now a proud student of the school. I got down from the car and students kept stealing glances at me and whispering, maybe it’s because of the guards
👥 Isn’t that the girl that pushed Raymond last week
👥 Yes it’s her, she’s really beautiful
👥 She must be very rich look at her guards
👥 And her dress
I ignored the students and checked if I would see Clarissa to apologize, as I searched through the crowd i saw him, my prince charming. I was so happy I squealed drawing attention
I Know that squeal and I also know what comes after such squeal I didn’t think twice I started running forgetting my status, as I ran she chased after me followed by my guards followed by her guards then the students.
They all chased after us, till she caught up with me, gosh I completely forgot she was a fast runner. She pushed me to the ground and started tickling me
“You thought you could run unh” she said as she tickled me
” Baby, stop it” I said while laughing. My guards were shocked, the students were beyond shocked, some were videoing it
👥Did Raymond just laugh
👥 Gosh his laugh his so sweet, just like music to my ears
👥 I already made his laughter my ringing tone, but who’s she to Raymond
The students mummured but I didn’t care, it was just like our childhood days, she had always been the playful and outspoken one while I was the reserved one.
The guards were finally able to get Diamond off me , while the students dispersed when they heard the bell which signifies beginning of lecture
I had to follow Diamond to the principal office since she hadn’t finished her admission process , we got to the principal office and sat down.
” Raymond, nice to meet you in person my dad is your number one fan” the principal said
” Whatever” I said and rolled my eyes and immediately I received a snack on my head
My guards chuckled and I glared at them before looking at the person that smacked me
“Diamond” I called but she just rolled her eyes at me
“Whatever” she said mimicking me. ” You were being rude and that’s bad, apologize to him” she said sternly
I don’t know how but even as a child Diamond always had this authoritative aura, as in when she gives a command most of the time, you couldn’t help but obey, so without realizing it I actually apologized
To say the principal was shocked is an understatement, he was totally perplexed the great Raymond Kings apologize .
” Oh Diamond, you’re really changing me” I thought
