My parents were still talking to the police officers that brought me home. Again. After talking to the police my parents went to their bore-Raksha-to-death speeches. Of course they couldn’t ground me I’m their little angel. Which I’m anything but. I’m the only child but I’m not spoiled.
Later that night dad came into the room.
“Can I talk to you?” he asked.
“Sure”, I replied. I made room for him to sit down.
“What happened today?” dad asked.
“Well”, I said. I told him how I caught Bratt cheating and I made him into a human piñata. And got some kids to beat him up with some big sticks. I also filled him with a lot of candy. Dad signed and said, “You can’t do that anymore de.”
I kept my head down saying nothing. “Your mother and I will talk to you tomorrow about your punishment.” I groaned. “Hey, you brought this upon yourself. Anyway, good night my little demon.” He kissed me on my forehead and left. My first name Raksha means ‘demon’ in Latin. So he just uses it as his little nickname for me.
I cursed up a storm when I woke up the next morning. Not only was I blinded by the sun streaming through my window, I also hit my head on my night stand while falling of the bed. And I also stubbed my toe on the way to the bathroom. So you can say I had a crappy morning. Or karma came to bite me in the ass for what I did to Bratt yesterday and the day before that.
Before I Bratt into a human piñata, my friends caught him on video making out with the school slut. So I went to his house at night climbing through the window. My friends Katrina, Mia and Gina came with me. Bratt was sleeping and guess who was in his arms after doing the nasty. How sweet. Mia took pictures of them together and the room before we get started.
Bratt likes to keep his room tidy. We decided to give it some what we call a messy flavor. We started throwing things around. I found Allie’s (slut) bag. I took her red lipstick and wrote ‘it’s over’ on his mirror with X’s around. That should give him a heart attack in the morning. Bratt have a vicious Chihuahua. So I threw his precious stuff out the window. Teddy (dog) shred them to shreds. Mia took some more pictures and left.
Teddy had the cuff of my pants between her teeth refusing to let go. At that precise moment the cops came. When they saw it was me they brought me home to my worried parents. Good thing my friends got away. They were already on probation. They never thought for a second that my friends will be on it too.
“Finally, decided to join us this afternoon, Ever”, mom said. “Eh” was all I said. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down.
“So what is my punishment?” I asked after taking a sip from my coffee. Mom and dad exchanged looks between them. Dad cleared his throat.
“Well, your mom-we- decided to sand you to boarding school”, he said.
“WHAT?” I yelled after spitting out my coffee and knocking my chair down. They didn’t flinch; they’re used to my outburst. “I’m not going”, I stated simply.
“We already bought your ticket and talked to the headmaster of the school conforming your stay”, mom said. “You’re leaving tomorrow. It’s final and we are not discussing this anymore”.
At that mom left dragging dad behind her. I texted my friends to meet me at the usual spot. I ran upstairs took a showered, brush my teeth and put my clothes on. I let my hair air dry. It will take too long to blow dry it.
“I’m going to meet my friends at the spot”, I yelled leaving my room. “What? But you have to pack your stuff”, mom said looking dazed. I notice her hair is a little messy and her clothes are wrinkled. I shivered. Even though my ‘rentals have been married for 18 years. The still act like they are in high school.
“You and dad can start packing for me”, I said. “I’ll be back so I can pack the rest later. Bye”.
I bolted down the stairs and out the door before she can say anything else. I spotted my friends at our table. I sat next to Kathy. “So what did you…?” Mia started. “Want to talk about”, Gina finished. Mia and Gina are twins; the only way you can tell them apart is by their hair. Mia has black hair and Gina have white hair. Kathy has black pink and purple in her hair.
