Standing On My Own

Standing On My Own Chapter 4

1 I stormed into my room.

2I wanted to be out of this outfit as fast as possible.

3I ripped the hair tie out of my head and let all of my locks fall on my shoulders.

4There was a knock on my door. Without thinking I slammed it open and said, “WHAT?!”

5There, standing, was Mr. Caffrey. My anger immediately channeled out of me and instead guilt took its place. “Mr. Caffrey… I’m so sorry… I thought you were…”

6“Someone else.” he said, finishing my thought for me.

7“Yeah. I’m sorry.” I said in attempts to amend my inappropriate outburst.

8“All is forgiven child. Follow me.” he said simply.

9I didn’t know what to say so I just followed him quietly.

10All I could feel was surprise and confusion when he led me to the kitchen.

11I didn’t know how hungry I was until I smelled the array of delicious scents all around. Mr. Caffrey told me to wait here and quietly stepped away without leaving the kitchen entirely.

12I was still scanning the kitchen when someone caught my eye…

13That jerk…

14“Wow, you stormed off in a hurry.” he said with a smile as he walked over.

15How did he have the nerve to even attempt to talk to me after what just happened?

16“You… you… you… INSENSITIVE JERK!” I yelled. “I can’t believe…” I began…

17“Woah, woah. Calm down.” he said whilst laughing.

18What? Why is he laughing?

19“Can you give me a chance to explain?” he asked.

20I just nodded; I had absolutely no idea what he was saying or where this was going.

21“You passed.” he stated simply.

22HUH?

Thanks for reading! Feel free to let me know what you thought~

  1. Well, uhm, thanks, rich random stranger. She could sue you for what you just did! If she had the money… But well… I’m really wondering where you’re going to take this. I need an explanation…
