Hi there! First story ko po ito.
)))) Just had an idea. Prologue
THE OTHER GIRL
Did you hear that Zed is dating the new transferee girl?
Yes, I did.
Gosh, I thought you guys were already going out.
Honey, we only flirted. We were never really dating.
Never mind him, if I were him I would’ve chosen you over that girl.
Then why didn’t he?
Why didn’t he choose me?
Why did he fall for her and not me?
I am so much better looking than her.
I am more popular.
I am the perfect girlfriend.
Shouldn’t I be the deserving one for his love?
I came first.
But, I guess that’s not the point now, huh.
While I thought we were on our way to a happily ever after, he was swiftly tripped by another girl.
He falls for her.
She catches him.
And there goes me,
Left in the open air and tossed to the side.
No choice but to watch them as their happily ever after unfolds right before my eyes.
What was I thinking?
This clearly is not my story.
I’m no heroine, but a side character
to their love story.
I was just the other girl.
So what would you do when you realize that you’re a mere supporting character until the main one arrives?
Accept your fate and move on?
I don’t think so.
In every story there is a protagonist and antagonist.
One upon a time, I was chosen as the antagonist.
So, why not act like one
? Pre-chapter 1
Once upon a time in a faraway land we call High School
, was a prince and a princess. Whose love story took everyone by surprise, including me.
For I thought dear readers, that I was surely the princess in this story.
‘Of course not’ said the author. TICK.TOCK.TICK.TOCK.
‘Why in heavens would you think that?’ laughed the narrator.
‘Then who am I in this story?’ I yelled.
‘You my dear are the one and only antagonist in this story.’ Came the reply.
The clock struck 12 midnight. A dazzling girl was in frenzy as she hurriedly ran down the stairs away from the castle. The magnificent gown that she wore transformed suddenly into a peasants’ dress. She swiftly pulled a few strands of her sophisticated hair that was once styled into an up do but had undone. Right after she disappeared into the night, a man appeared with a puzzled face.
She’s gone, I am too late. He thought. His shoulders and arms dragged down, dejected he was about to leave when he spotted a flicker of the light. Behold! IT was a glass slipper, from the pair that his lovely partner was wearing. He gently picked up the glass slipper and with hope in his eyes and newfound determination, he went back to the palace where a grand ball was awaiting his presence.
Not far off somewhere was I, sitting down bundled up in my dress, all made up and ready to proceed to the ball, but my feet dared not to move. I was left alone in the carriage contemplating as the scene that I had just witnessed not long ago replayed in my mind. My eyebrows were scrunched together. In my right hand I was gripping my poor mask with vengeance. I could feel a stab in the chest but it was quickly replaced by a fiery of hatred.
Dark thoughts entered my mind.
I could hear nothing but my own heartbeat and the trees rustling around me as the air breezed by. I did not know that I was holding my breath until my own chest expanded itself exhaling and inhaling. But nothing entered my mouth.
I felt like I was suffocating.
I was suffocating.
I was jolted awake by a noise, or at least I think I heard something but it was too dark in my room, there could have been a rapist right there in the shadows of my room but I quickly dismissed that horrid thought.
I’m just paranoid. Having a nightmare can mess up with your mind. Right. Just Paranoid. Just in case I let my groggily eyes quickly scan the room. I could only see the bathroom door that was still closed, and my books neatly placed in my bookshelves to the right side of my bed, the other part of my room was engulfed by the shadows.
Beside me my alarm clock that was fixed to the wall blinked 3:00 am. My chest that was already heaving drastically inhaling long breaths of air suddenly froze as I glanced at my study desk where right above it was my opened window. My squinted eyes suddenly opened with alertness. I remember closing that right before I went to sleep.
With slow and gentle movements I rose out of my bed and approached the window. Both my hands held onto the lock, I was about to close it when I dared to glance outside, down the street towards the side of our house and to the front where another pair of eyes met mines.
My whole body froze and I almost let out a scream. The eyes moved out of the shadows and placed his head outside the window. ‘Hello there’
the boy that was resting his head on his right hand waved at me with his other hand. Ugh. It was only Kai, my next door neighbor. I closed my eyes and breathed in a relief. ‘Oh its you.’
I pointed out dryly. ‘You should’ve seen your face’
He smiled and watched my face turn into a scowl.
His smiled grew and he let out a wide jolly laugh. I saw him say something else but I zoned him out by closing and locking my windows.
I smiled triumphantly at him and flashed him my middle finger before going back to the inner part of my room. I wiped out a trail of sweat at my forehead.
I rolled my eyes, leave it to Kai to sit by his window at this late of the hour and scare the !@#$ out of me.
I relaxed into my bed and soon sleep engulfed me but in the corner of my heart i could feel that something bad was about to happen.
