Natalia's pov

I was enjoying my peaceful sleep,I was still dreaming about me and a guy dancing suddenly I

felt my body wet.

All my beds were filled with water,all my body was soaked with water.

I stood up lazily to check the person and I discovered it was my mum.

I checked the time and discovered it was 4am in the morning..... Anyways, that is how I wake up

early.I sleep late and still wake up early while Eva, my sister, wakes at 7:30 am.

"Mummy good morning ma"I greeted her.

"Keep your greetings to yourself you fool, I had woken up to ease myself and I discovered you

are still asleep. Are you not supposed to be washing the dishes now huh?" she asked.

"Am sorry...am sorry mum" I said and quickly ran out of the room.

When I reached the kitchen,I felt a sharp pain in my belly and I already knew that it was a

menstrual pain.I usually have pains if I am on my period but my mum does not want to know if I

am having pains or not.

"I suddenly realised - Omg,ooooh!!! I don't even have a sanitary pad to use . I normally buy it for

myself if I have money but It have finished now...I guess I can use a piece of cloth for this time .

Because sometimes when I have no money I usually use it and I have almost finished my pads,

I normally use cloth for my periods.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Natalia James. I am 19 yrs old,I am staying with my

parents and I have a younger sister who is 17 yrs,we are not poor in my family let me just say

middle class.

My mum is a business woman while my Dad is a banker.... With all this they still allow me to

hawk cupcakes everyday anytime I am back from school_ I think that is okay about me now.

I don't know why my family dislikes me, but I have been asking myself the question since.

I saw the plates in the kitchen and I almost passed out.....why are there so many dishes today


I picked them and I started washing them, even though I was feeling pains.

I guess I'm the only one awake, because I could not hear sounds again. Maybe my mum has

gone back to sleep.

I started feeling cold and also shaking vigorously due to the water she poured on me.

After I finished washing the dishes,I started cooking breakfast and I checked the time and it

was 5'o o'clock.....I am a dead meat.

I quickly left the kitchen to wash the dirty clothes because if she is awake and not done she is

going to beat me for it.

I am the one that wash the family cloth every day including my sister's own.

We even have a washing machine but she does not allow me to use it.

After I finished washing the plates,I quickly picked the broom and I swept the whole house.

Before I knew it,I finished my work.....

After I finished my work I reached my room and I quickly removed my clothes and entered the

bathroom to bath after I finished bathing I checked the time that I was late already which is a

normal thing for me so I quickly dressed up on my way to the kitchen to carry my food I met Eva

on her way to school.

Eve and I does not stay in the same room her room is more prettier and we'll furnished than my

own.....the only thing I have in my room is my cloth and an abandoned bed the bed is even

smelling due to the way my mum pours water on it whenever I did not wake up early.

"Natalia go and help me to bring my school bag," she said.

"What?? Did you mean me?? " I asked her

"Who else will I be talking to if not you,are you deaf??" She asked.

"You must be stupid" I said and wanted to pass her.

"You heard her clearly you fool,how many times will I tell you to help her to do whatever she

asked you" mum said and she came out of her room fully dressed.

"But mum" I was about to say something when she shushed me.

"Will you keep quiet, have I not told you not to talk whenever I am talking huh" she asked.

"Am sorry mum" I said.

"For that this is your punishment no school for you today, thank God there is no food in the pot

again,wash all the toilets in the house and after that you should come to my shop to collect

cupcakes and you must sell everything finished" she said and walked out.

No school for me and they have finished the food today again,why is my life like this?? Why is

my life different huh?

Adrian's pov

I waited for Natalia to come to school but I did not see her.

I guess she is not coming again today, something seems strange about her that I don't know.

I think she is hiding something from me. Anytime I wanted to follow her to get home she always

stopped me.

She looks really poor and tattered even though her beauty still overcomes it.... sometimes I

wonder how she pays her school fees.

Enough about Natalia,let me introduce myself.....my name is Adrian am the only child of my

parents.....my parents are rich and am 18 yrs old.

My best friend is Natalia and I love her so much even though she is older than me.

I don't really understand her....

"School will be really boring for me today without her" I thought.
