Her scarred psyche.

Chapter 5

"It's my turn."


"no it's not."


" It is "


" Just let me change this movie Lisa " Onke begged for the hundredth time.


I laughed and handed him the remote before going to the kitchen to drink water . The popcorns were over. Mostly because we were throwing them at each other rather Than devouring them I walked towards the couch and settled down next to him. He motioned for me to come closer to him and when I did he put his arms around me cuddling me.


" You haven't told me why you missed your lectures today." I brought up the topic once again.


" You missed me didn't you?" Onke asked.


"Actually no Siya was a good company."


" Who is Siya?" He asked with so much concern in his tone.


" I met her at the cafeteria today.She is tall Skinny and Pretty."


Onke nodded his head deep in thoughts.


Right before a scary scene appeared on the tv screen.


"What's this?" I asked.


"Are you scared? We watching 'insidious'." He asked me a little amused.


" that doesn't even sound scary to me .why would I be afraid?"


Onke Smirked . We watched the movie up until the end . Every scary part I would scream and cover my eyes with a pillow. And Onke laughed this whole time. His chest vibrated against my ear as he laughed. I pushed back from his embrace and playfully hit him in the chest


" what's funny?"


" Everything about you is funny" I just stared at him in annoyed amusement knowing I had no comeback.

The next day I woke up earlier than planned so I relaxed and did my morning rituals peacefully. And headed to campus. I made my way to the library since it was still early so I decided to borrow a book. There was literally nothing to do at all. With my textbooks and my newly borrowed book in my hand I lightly walked through the halls which was barely filled with people. I was a few pages into the book when someone suddenly slapped the back of my head. My face almost hit the book but it didn't so I turned around and elbowed the person harshly


" wow you ready to fight back?" The person was no other than Siya who slightly applauded.


" shut up" I said.


She giggled. Siya told me she was going to write a test that morning and I should accompany her to her lecture.


" So did you prepare?"


" Yes I did "


"That's great" I complimented We continued talking all the way to our lectures.


" Bye

I will meet you at the cafeteria during lunch" I nodded and walked into my class.

I walked into the cafeteria and looked around. As walls of the cafeteria echoed with chatter and laughter. I went over to grab something to eat and lightly walked over to a table. I was about to reach the table when someone grabbed my food .


" what-" I said And I came face to face with Onke


"I'm so hungry i'm going to have this." He said.


" You can't i'm also hungry" And I was really hungry and my temper was rising.


" No but i'm going to eat this one" he replied smirked and completely amused.


" Onke No marn !" I said trying to grab my food but he was taller than me He held it up high. I took a deep breathe and forced a smile and pleaded with him.


"Let me think..." he said and looked Up as if he was thinking.


"No " He said at last and prepared to run. We were drawing the attention of several People So I decided not to chase him. I went to sit down and so did Onke . Within few seconds I spotted siya amongst the crowds making her way up to me.


" hey" she greeted Onke


"hello Siya " he replied.


"Okay I guess you two already know each other so i'm going to leave it here. " I said that as I attempted to grab my food from Onke. He lifted his hands up and smirked .


" Haven't you eaten ?" siya asked.


"no He took my food" I pointed at Onke.


" Give her food back!" Siya orded.


" I think I should get going before you guys gangup on me "

We all laughed.
