Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 5
“Cali, what’s wrong with you? Why did you have to exchange words with her?” Mum asked as she sat next to me and i huffed.
“Seriously, mum? What’re you talking about? Didn’t you see what she did to me? She was so rude” I said in a pissed manner.
“Cali, please. You’re new here and have to be careful. Just try as much as possible to stay out of trouble, okay?”.
“Whatever” I muttered with an eye roll and folded my hands.
Just then, the two people in the office stepped out and I breathed a sigh of relief, knowing I’d soon be done with all these.
Mum and I stood up and went into the office and there we met the chubby looking man busy with some files.
“Good day, sir. I’m back with her” mum said and I wondered when she’s met him before.
“Oh! Please, take a seat”, the man replied in a brisk and mum and I sat in front of him.
Then, he brought out a form and started scribbling down on it.
“So, you’re….Cali Jenner, 17 years old, light skinned, long hair, grey eyes, mind reader, banshee…” He murmured all these as he wrote them down on the form and I cringed in amusement of the necessities of all those details.
When he was done, he passed the form to me with a pen.
“Here; sign it” he said and I slowly went through the details before inputting my signature.
“Good. And welcome to the White Diãmônds institute, girly. You’ll be taken to your room from here and in a short time, an orientation will be held for all the freshers.
Endeavour to be in it so you can get to know the rules and regulations guiding this place to avoid getting into trouble. Everything you need to know about this institute will be highlighted at the orientation. So, like I said, make sure you don’t miss it.
“Once again, welcome to the Diãmônd’s institute”, he concluded with a warm smile and stretched out his hand for a handshake and I hesitated before taking it.
“Thank you” I said in a mild voice and quickly collected my hand.
“Thank you so much, sir. I just hope she’ll be safe here” mum said.
“Well, of course. As long as she keeps to the rules and avoids trouble” he replied and I rolled my eyes, avoiding mum’s glance..
“She…she will. We’ll be on our way now”,
“Hold on” the chubby man said and reached for his telephone.
He requested the presence of someone and in less than 60 seconds, the person showed up – a young boy.
“Take her to her room. Room 9 – apartment 4” he instructed the boy.
“Yes, sir”,he replied and started walking out of the office.
“Thank you so much, sir. We’ll be on our way now” mum said to the chubby man.
“Okay, sure. Take care of yourself”.
And we finally left the God-d--n office.
The boy assigned to take me to my room was already ahead of us and mum and I had to hasten our steps in order to catch up with him.
After walking through the passage for a long time, we finally got out to the open space and I gasped at the buildings in front of me.
It was more like i had entered a different world as soon as we stepped out of the passage because the sight in front of me was undescribable.
Is this what the institute looks like??
The place was sooo big and had tall buildings all over. There was a big fountain fall in the center of the building, bringing out sparkles as it flowed.
A lot of boys and girls could be spotted all over, doing one thing or the other.
It looked more like a palace.
“Come on, Cali. Let’s get your things from the car” mum broke into my fancy thoughts and I followed her to the car where she opened the booth and brought out my bag of clothes.
Mehn! This sh*t is real.
The boy who was leading us also had to stop walking when he noticed we’d stopped at mum’s car.
“You’ll be fine here, Cali. Okay? I promise to come visiting at every slightest opportunity they give. Remember to be a good girl and stay out of trouble. Okay?” Mum said as she touched my cheeks affectionately.
I sniffed and suddenly got moody.
“Okay, mum. Extend my regards to dad and Owens” I mumbled and she smiled and brought out a necklace from her bag.
“Here. Always have this with you. It should remind you of me so you don’t miss me much,,okay?” She said as she locked the pretty necklace around my neck and we hugged after that.
“I love you, Cali” she whispered into my ears.
“Love you too, mum” I winced and we pulled away from the hug.
“Okay. Its time. Don’t keep the young man waiting”, she chuckled but I only let out a rueful smile as i sluggishly carried my bags.
I waved at her one last time and she finally got into the car before I walked away.
This has really happened. I’m now alone!
I’m f**king alone.
“Hurry up, miss. I’ve got other things to do” the boy said impatiently and continued walking away and I just watched him without saying a word.
I kept my gaze on the floor, thinking of what my life would be in the institute.
How do I cope?
Still walking, I saw something that gripped my attention.
A group of girls were gathered and one of them was making lights with our hands.
Like…the crown of sparkling light just kept rotating in her hand while the others giggled.
It was so beautiful, but too bad, I couldn’t admire it for long as a result of the boy who was moving like a car.
We walked for a long time and finally got to a particular apartment that was dazzlingly beautiful.
We had to take the stairs, coming across a lot of people and finally, we got to the “Royal” room.
“That’s your room” the boy simply said and left.
I looked at the room and confirmed it was indeed room 9.
I took in a deep breath and was about opening the door when I heard strange voices.
Hold on; it didn’t even occur to me.
Would I be staying alone? Or I’d actually have room mates?
I flinched at the sound I was hearing because they didn’t seem to be normal. It actually seemed to be…
I turned the knob and slowly pushed the door open and my eyes drooped at the sight in front of me.
Two ladies….On the bed….
Holy Molly! Please, don’t tell me these are my room mates.
