THE RED HAIRED WITCH
EPISODE •• FORTY •• ONE
THEME:NEW HOME
Kira POV
And then we were falling, everywhere black. I opened my mouth to let out a surprised shout but Darius had anticipated my reaction and I found his hand clamped over my lips,keeping me silent. He gripped me tighter,curling his body around mine protectively, trying to take as much of the impact of our fall as possible. For a moment we were devoid of anything other than the only darkness that surrounded us. And then just as quickly, our bodies came to an abruptly halt,landing on a hard immovable surface. Light invaded my senses I blinked. I was laying on top of Darius. He loosened his hold,slightly,his knuckles caressing my cheek.
“Are you okay?”
I held his strong gaze, while I took inventory of my body for a moment. It wasn’t a pleasant fall,but everything felt in the right places and working. I breathed
“Yes I think so…are you okay too?”
“Yes I’m fine”
I looked around slowly,my mouth forming a small ‘o’ we were in a rundown old mansion. Darius grabbed my shoulders and thrust our bodies hard to the side. I huffed in surprised,oh!…I looked back to find the duffel bag rolling down a set of stone steps. It landed with a thump where we were seated a while ago
“Where are we Darius?”
I twisted my neck to look at our surrounding again. I couldn’t turn too far. Darius’s arm were still protectively wrapped around me limiting my movement. It looked like a grand hall of a long forgotten Mansion, so forgotten,that the landscape had made its way into the building and now called the structured home. Leafy green foliage and cobwebs filled the house while pitched of moss crept up the walls almost reaching the jumbled mess of vines covering the dilapidated ceiling
“Are we staying in here Darius?”
“Not here Kira”
“Where is this place?”
“Long story Kira”
What did he mean by that…everything about Darius involves a long story. I looked around. The landscape was comprised of familiar elements, but everything was just bigger. The tree trunks were massive,and reached hundreds of feet into the air
“Can you at least tell me a short story about this weird place”
I said to Darius as we travelled on foot into the thick wood. The moon hire shine brightly,lighting up the way
“This place used to belong to the Fae”
Darius finally replied
“The Fae..”
“Yes…and that old mansion you saw earlier belonged to the Fae”
“All the Fae lived in that home”
“Not all the Fae in the world but just few of them. And they all lived in peace and harmony while In that Mansion”
“Don’t they own this place anymore”
“It belong to no one now”
“What happened?”
“A bloodline Vampire came with his men to claim the landscape above and the Fae world”
“How did he know there was a Fae world beneath?”
“A dark Fae was his ally,so he told the Vampire the Fae secret”
“He betrayed his own people”
“As history have it the Fae Leader then married the Dark Fae lover”
“So he told the secret”
“Yes..the lady Fae wasn’t the Dark Fae lover…but the Dark Fae was deeply in love with her buy she loved the Fae leader instead. The dark Fae was mad at the Lady Fae for choosing the Fae leader over him”
“Too bad”
“The vampire came but unfortunately for him the Fae leader was already prepared for a fight ever since he married the Lady Fae”
“So he knew those times that the Dark Fae would come to take the Lady Fae”
“Yes …and he was aware that he won’t come without bringing the blood thirst human”
“Vampire right?”
“Yes since the Dark Fae was an ally to a Vampire”
“So did the Vampires destroyed this whole place?”
“No but they only managed to kill some Fae”
“The vampire mission was to take the Lady Fae and claim the land as a reward for bringing the Lady Fae to the Dark Fae?”
“Yes but he failed in both aspect”
“How?”
“The Fae leader made every Fae disappeared from this world and managed to conquer the Vampire..”
“He destroyed the world he created himself”
“Exactly”
“So this place is really a forgotten place”
“Yes it is”
“Are you sure there are no Fae or Vampire lurking around her anymore?”
“No one is here..and am sure no supernatural being remembered this place”
“What about the Fae?”
“It been ages so they can never return to this place”
“Have you been here before?”
“Yes but just once after I heard the story a long time ago…I wanted to see for myself and I found out that it was true”
“So where are we staying?”
I asked Darius when we reached a clearing
“You are the one to set that place up Kira”
“What do you mean?”
I tried to make sense out of his words
“Are you saying I should build a house with my powers?”
“So why do you think I didn’t ask us to stay in that old mansion?”
“How am i supposed to do that?!”
“You have powers don’t you?”
“I haven’t tried building a house before with my powers!”
“There is always a first time to some things Kira”
“What spell do I chant to set up a house?”
“Are you asking me that?”
“Yes cause i don’t know!”
“Okay then…let’s go back to the old Mansion”
He grabbed my hand and dragged me behind him. There is no way I’m going to stay in that freaking old Mansion!
“Wait Darius..”
He didn’t stop
“Wait… I don’t want to go back there”
It didn’t work on him
“Okay..fine Darius..I will set up a house for us”
He stopped and turned to face me
“How will you do that without knowing a spell for it?”
“I once read it that a Red Witch can make things happen without the need of a spell”
“But you are not a well trained witch”
“Ah..yes..you’re right but I have done it before”
“When? Where?”
“In the wood when I compelled those vampires…I did that without chanting the compulsion spell”
“Thank goodness you know that a red witch can work magic without the need of a spell”
He placed his two hands on my head
“Good girl now let go set up a decent house for us”
He held my hand as we walked back to the clearing
“We don’t need a mansion,a decent sized home would do”
Darius stepped away from me with his arms folded,patiently waiting for me to make a house appear right on the land
“You can do it Kira”
Darius grounded
My palms sweat. I exhaled slowly to calm my nerves. On the next inhale, I forced power from my belly. My fingers and toes tingled as a surge of energy vibrates through me. Even without looking in a mirror, I knew my eyes were glowing green. The words of a wish flowed smooth as honey from my lips as I purred
“I need a decent sized house here on this land, so I can be comfortable here in this wood”
It wasn’t a spell so I was not sure if it could work, until everywhere became stormy at first,I felt the earth beneath my feet shake as I staggered I saw a house, building out of the earth in front of me. My eyes stopped glowing after the whole house appeared
“I did it!”
I screamed and ran to Darius,hurtling myself Into his arms. He stumbled back and grunted
“Yes you did it good girl!”
He whirled me
“I never knew I can do that!”
When our bodies stopped moving, he gently settled me with my feet touching the ground
“I have always known you can do something like this Kira”
“Well maybe I’m yet to know how powerful I am”
“Don’t worry you will learn that here Red Witch”
He bowed and we laughed
“This will be our new home till I settle everything okay?”
“Yes”
I gave him a hard nod
“So..since you can set up a beautiful house like this am sure you can bring in some other materials we need in a home”
“Yes I will try that… Will you like to have a beautiful garden here?”
“I will love that Kira..but you are not doing that today. You will do the outside tomorrow”
“Okay! Let’s go in and check out our new home!”
I ran up the small steps leading to the porch. I opened the door only to find that we have everything we could ever wish to have in a proper home..but just one thing was left out while I was checking the house. No clothes for us! And no books to read!
“Can I bring in some clothes Darius?!”
I called out from the room I picked to be mine
“Yes…do as you wish”
He replied from his room. I don’t need to push out power – all I did was whisper the words and clothes fell on the king sized bed
“Books!books! You know I can’t do without you Books!”
A second clicked by and a shelf filled with books appeared in a side of the room. I heard a soft knock on the door
“Come in Darius”
His gaze dropped in the heap of clothes on the bed
“Why so many clothes?”
“Well…I didn’t ask for too many clothes…I only said the word twice and they appeared like that”
“You can arrange them in your closet then”
“Sure..should I order some clothes for you too?”
Darius laughed at the ‘order’ in the sentence
“I will like some too”
I followed Darius into his to to bring in some clothes for him. I love this!

THE RED HAIRED WITCH
EPISODE •• FORTY •• TWO
THEME: LISTEN TO ME SAI!
MUMBAI
REYANSH MANSION
Kyle POV
“Sir Kyle!Sir Kyle!”
I felt a soft tap on my thigh and someone calling my name
“Get up sir Kyle or else you will be late for school”
I heard the familiar voice whisper into to my ears now.
School! School! I opened my eyes immediately then I saw Arjun staring at me. I looked at my bedside clock it read 7:25am beeping red on the small machine. My eyes widened 7:25am! I jumped out of bed and rushed to the bathroom
“Ooh Arjun why didn’t you wake up earlier that this?!”
I said from the bathroom, picked up my toothbrush and brushed my teeth first
“You’ve never needed anyone to wake you up Sir”
(Oh yes that true! I get out of bed on time but today was different because I slept late last night. I was chatting with Lana so I slept around 3:30am this morning
“I was surprised when I didn’t see you at the breakfast table this morning”
“What about Reyansh?”
“He already left for school… I think you need to see him when you get to school cause he was very annoyed this morning when he didn’t see you at breakfast. I wonder what punishment he would give to you this time around for waking up late”
I stepped out of the bathroom after taking the quickest bathe on record
“What should I do? Or say to Mr Reyansh when I get to school?”
“You can tell him that you aren’t feeling too well…a headache would do”
“Good idea Arjun!”
“Well that if he won’t find out you are lying”
“He won’t”
(He passed my backpack to me)
“Thank you Arjun”
Then I disappeared to the Academy!
Arjun is a boy but older than I am. He is one of Mr Reyansh workers. Arjun was assigned to take care of me. I told Mr Reyansh I don’t need a nanny or babysitter but he insisted that I have an India Citizen to teach me some certain things about India and also show me around. It being one month since I moved to India, staying in Mr Reyansh Mansion. He is the Dean of Vidyalaya Khanapara Academy. He is a good man and he has been kind to me but one thing about him is that he is good at giving punishments. Anytime he is training me, Mr Reyansh was always too quick to scold me for making little mistakes and he also gives punishments according to Mistakes Or offences. Every students of Vidyalaya fears Mr Reyansh and some of my classmates gives me credit for training under him and living in the same house with him. I have been able to learn so many things about my powers and some times I do wish that Kira was also here to learn about her powers too. My first day in Mr Reyansh mansion wasn’t a nice day to me.
FLASHBACK
A car was sent to pick me up at the airport and I was welcomed by Mr Reyansh Workers. Arjun introduced himself as my nanny and I was forced to roll my eyes when he said that. Arjun carried my boxes to the room arranged for Me and he asked me to changed up before meeting the master. I showered and came out of the bathroom only to find Arjun holding a male Indian dress in his hands
“You are to wear this sir”
“Don’t worry I have enough clothes in my box”
‘I’m sorry sir,you can’t wear a western dress to meet master”
“Are you for real?”
“Yes..Mr Reyansh likes his students dressed in Native wears”
“What did you say is your name again?”
“Arjun”
“How many of Mr Reyansh student go about dressing in that?”
“A lot of them..but for now you are the only student leaving in mansion”
“Why?”
I collected the clothes from Arjun and eyed it disgustingly
“The other students couldn’t cope with him so they are at the school dormitory”
(I checked it out and hissed)
“This outfit is called Dhoti.. It is the national dress of India”
The Dhoti is a white strip of Cotton about for to six feet long
“There is no way I’m walking about in a dress like this”
“Well let me give you a piece of Advise Sir. It better you wear it now and act like you are comfortable in it for today or else Mr Reyansh will order you continue wearing it till the day you leave here”
I reluctantly collected the clothes from him
“Dhoti is a traditional attire,it is mainly worn by men in villages”
“Village? Not even in cities? Please just tell me how to put this in and let me meet the master once and for all”
“Wrap it around your waist and you wear the white shirt on it. Mr Reyansh want you to wear a Pagri on your head too”
“What Pagri?”
“Indian turban”
I rolled my eyes. Arjun helped me after I failed on how to tie the Dhoti. I looked like a clown when I checked myself out in the mirror. Arjun let out a small laugh
“Arggggggg…I can’t believe I have to go through all this all in the name of training”
I grumbled
“It time to leave sir”
I followed Arjun out holding the wrapper in place so it won’t fall off. Arjun had given me a belt to hold it but it kept dropping. Some of Mr Reyansh workers stopped to laugh before passing by. I felt embarrassed when the maids stopped to stare and laughed at me…but they all drooled when I came in dressed in a western outfit and now they are making jest. Finally we got to Mr Reyansh study he ordered me to come in while he dismissed Arjun. Mr Reyansh was an old man in his 70’s with a gray hair on his head. His body was still physically fit and he doesn’t look like a man in his 70’s since he wasn’t using a walk stick
“Good morning sir”
I stretched my hands toward him. Mr Reyansh arched his brow – is it that he doesn’t understand English?
“Are you Kyle Hunter?”
Why is he asking when he already know that Kyle Hunter to coming to serve him
“Yes sir”
Mr Reyansh stood up from his chair,he picked up a small rod on his desk and came to me
“Aushsh!”
I yelped in pain when the rod hit my forehead..I never imagined that
“Didn’t they teach you in Fountain Falls on how to greet an Indian Master?
I rubbed my head…and who the heck is this man to hit me with a rod?
“On your Kneels!”
He barked out and I obeyed
“Hands up!”
I raised my hands above my head
“You should greet your elderly ones properly!”
How come a man in his 70’s still have the baritone voice to snarl at me Like this?
“Now what do you say?”
“I am sorry sir”
He frowned deeply.. Guess am wrong again but that what we say in America ‘I am sorry ‘
“Apologize in India”
“What?! I have no idea of how to say that”
“Get up”
I stood straight
“Your hand holding your two ears”
I followed his instruction
“Apologised now!”
“I am sorry….”
His frown deepened – what should I say? Oh yes!
“Forgive me master Reyansh”
I said to him slowly,thinking I was wrong again but a small smile formed on his lips before he walked back to him desk
“Do you like India?”
“Yes master”
“You like your new mode of dressing?”
“Yes master”
I replied sharply following Arjun Advice
“Take a seat”
“No I am fine master”
I refused his offer to sit cause Arjun said Mr Reyansh might have placed sharp pin on it. He doesn’t like his student sitting on the chair meant for his important guests. The two chairs belong to high Social level guests not students
“You are a very smart boy Kyle..a young child shouldn’t sit facing an elder..he should remain standing and gaze fixed to the ground while the elder speaks”
He paused
“Now that you as here let me show you around the Mansion myself”
He got out of his chair again and motioned to me to follow him. The rest of the day didn’t go well,Mr Reyansh told me the history of the academy which was owned by his Family. He spent hours telling me about the academy,his mansion and stories of his childhood. I was tired and hungry but I dared not say that to him all I did was listen to Mr Reyansh repeating the same stories of old time. I collapsed on my bed after taking dinner that night only for Arjun to come into my room around 5’o clock am to dress me up for a wedding ceremony
“Mr Reyansh insist that you go with him to a wedding ceremony”
I grumbled for minutes almost deciding to move back to America but Mr Reyansh walked in causing me to jump out of bed quickly
“You are still sleeping?”
“No sir..I was only saying my morning prayers when Arjun came in”
I lied to him
“My friend child is getting married today…his second child. I want you to come with me so I can introduce you to him. He is a Master too”
“Okay Master”
“No just call me Mr Reyansh since you passed your test yesterday”
“Yesterday….”
“Yes you never complained to me while I was telling you my stories”
“Oh! I enjoyed it..every bit of it”
“Don’t worry I will tell you more on our way to the ceremony”
“Okay Mr Reyansh”
“Take this Achkan”
He gave me the clothes in his hands
“It used to be for my son SAI but am sure it going to fit you”
I noticed the sadness in his tone
“We will leave by 7:00”
7:00? And I am awake by 5:00! So annoying
“Thank you Mr Reyansh”
He tapped my shoulder before walking out
“Hey Arjun where is Sai?”
“He is dead”
“Dead?”
“Yes Mr Reyansh lost his son ten years ago in a car crash. Sai died when he was 17 years old…and his death actually changed his father’s attitude towards children. Mr Reyansh was never a strict man but he was only a well principled man who believed in caring for a child and giving that child whatever he/she needs. Sai took his father care for granted,he was a disobedient boy and never listened to his father’s instructions. He started going out with bad friends which his dad warned him to stay away from them but Sai felt his dad was trying to deprive him of his freedom. At times Mr Reyansh ordered his workers to lock up the doors and Sai room too but he was always sneaking out through the window. On February 26, like I was told..that day was on Friday, Sai prepared for club but Mr Reyansh told him about the Vision he had that morning – Mr Reyansh dreamt that Sai was involved in an accident. Sai refused to listen,he fought with his dad that night when Mr Reyansh seized his fast cards and phones. Mr Reyansh locked all the doors with his powers but that didn’t stop Sai from leaving home that night”
“How did he leave?”
“I was told that he disappeared using his powers while Mr Reyansh was in the toilet – Mr Reyansh was mad at his workers that night when he met an empty chair. He went in search of Sai in some clubs but he couldn’t find him. He gave up on the search and prayed to Buddha to protect his son but it seems Sai was destined to die that night because of disobedience. The first call Mr Reyansh received the next morning was the announcement of Sai Death”
“Which club did he go to?”
“He didn’t go clubbing close by but in the next town. Sai and three of his friends were involved in the car accident on their way back home drunk. The rest of his friends had fatal injuries and they survived but only Sai died in the crash. Mr Reyansh changed his ways in training a child because he felt Sai death was his fault. He had over pampered SAI because he was his only child”
“What about Sai mom?”
“She died when she wanted to give birth to Sai”
That was the story Arjun told me that morning about Mr Reyansh only child. If only Sai had listened to his father that morning then he would have escaped death that night. Sai would have been alive now”
FLASHFORWARD
I appeared in the crowded school hallway and made my way to Mr Reyansh office! I just hope I get a fair punishment this time around!

The first call Mr Reyansh received the next morning was the announcement of Sai Death”
“Which club did he go to?”
“He didn’t go clubbing close by but in the next town. Sai and three of his friends were involved in the car accident on their way back home drunk. The rest of his friends had fatal injuries and they survived but only Sai died in the crash. Mr Reyansh changed his ways in training a child because he felt Sai death was his fault. He had over pampered SAI because he was his only child”
“What about Sai mom?”
“She died when she wanted to give birth to Sai”
That was the story Arjun told me that morning about Mr Reyansh only child. If only Sai had listened to his father that morning then he would have escaped death that night. Sai would have been alive now”
FLASHFORWARD
I appeared in the crowded school hallway and made my way to Mr Reyansh office! I just hope I get a fair punishment this time around!

THE RED HAIRED WITCH
EPISODE •• FORTY •• THREE
THEME:VIDYALAYA KHANAPARA ACADEMY
IN MR REYANSH OFFICE
Kyle POV
I knocked on Mr Reyansh door and entered after I heard a “come in”. Mr Reyansh looked up at me after I walked into his office. I greeted him in India
” Namaste”
Arjun taught me how to greet in India “Namaste” which means “I bow to the divine in you”. Arjun had showed me how to do the Namaste properly by bringing my hands together with my palms touching In front of my chest in a graceful fashion. He also told me that Namaste means to greet,for taking your leave from a place and also to seek forgiveness
” you were still asleep when I left home this morning”
“Yes Mr Reyansh”
“What were you doing up late night?”
I thought of what to say.. Cause I don’t think Arjun idea will work..it kinda impossible to lie to Mr Reyansh cause he has a way of finding out the truth. And he also loves it when someone is open with him and truthful
“Uhmmm..I..I was..”
“Chatting with a girl?”
He dropped his pen and looked straight at me
“Yes sir”
I avoided his gaze and stared at the ground. How on earth did he find out about that? Or was Mr Reyansh in my room last night?
“Was it Aakriti?”
“Aakriti? No! It wasn’t Aakriti”
Aakriti is Mr Reyansh friend’s last child..the one we went to his child’s wedding that day. I met Aakriti at the wedding while Mr Reyansh was introducing to his friends. Aakriti attends my school too and we are in the same class. I was able to learn fast from Mr Reyansh, so I took the school test and I passed..that made them put me in Class Five. Aakriti wants to get closer to me but I am seriously not interested in being friends with any India girl…they are beautiful and tempting but I don’t want any one getting attached to me because one thing keeps ringing in my head which is my promise to Lana. My love for that drama Queen make it impossible for me to like any other girl
“Then who is she?”
“My American girlfriend”
“Oh! You have a girlfriend in America?”
“Yes Mr Reyansh”
“Okay..but you shouldn’t let that distract you remember that you are here for a reason”
“Yes I know Mr Reyansh”
The bell rang
“You can go back to class then.. We will meet at home”
I bowed slightly before exiting the office
CLASS 5
I stepped into class 5 and they all stared at me before focusing back on what they were doing. They will never stop that act of staring anytime I come Into the class just like my first day in here. Virtually, all the girls had screamed and drooled when i came in with Mr Reyansh. There are no single English citizen in our class,I am the only student from America the rest are Indians and I still haven’t seen anyone from America or any English country in the school. Some of the Indian girls dress in Sari,a clothe meant for females in India while some other girls dresses in western ways. The boys dresses in India outfit on Fridays,but the other days they dress in western outfit. We all relate in English but some of them can’t speak English fluently like I do while some understands English but can’t speak it. Some students in the class write in India language,and sometimes I have to use my powers to translate whenever they are discussing a very important rumor in class
“Kyle! Kyle!”
I heard my male friend Vihaan waving from his seat as he adjusted his eyes glasses. He is the class captain and the most brilliant student in class 5. I Mean Vihaan is a genius! I settled down beside him and brought out my maths textbook and notepad
“Hey bro”
I thought him that word “hey bro” Vihaan used to greet me with a Namaste
“Good to see you Vihaan”
“Why are you late?”
“Slept late last night”
“Chatting with girlfriends”
“Girlfriend.. No ‘S’ ”
Vihaan thinks am a Playboy because I get attention from girls each time I come into the class
“Okay…kyle”
An old Lady dressed in purple Sari walked into the class. Mrs Aahna is the Mathematics teacher. She is strongly against western dressing for India girls. There is only one girl in class who wears Sari to school all the time. She is Aakriti, I have never seen her dressed in jeans and top or even gown just Sari. Mr Aarav who is Mr Reyansh friend..and Aakriti dad must have made his only daughter that way..he is also against western dress for India girls And Women
“Good Morning class”
“Good Morning Mrs Aahna”
We chorused
I glanced up at the teacher who was turned around writing on the board. SIMULTANEOUS EQUATION
I wrote the topic down in my notepad. I turned to see Myra staring at me. Myra is Vidyalaya goddess… She is Miss Vidyalaya. She got that title after she was crowned the most beautiful girl when they hosted a beauty pageant in the Academy as one of the social activities. She was pronounced the most beautiful girl in Vidyalaya Academy but I can tell you that there are other girls in the school that are prettier than She is. I raised an eyebrow and she nudged her head towards a crumpled paper that was laying next to my slide. I picked it up and read it
“Will you like to hang out with me and my friends tonight?”
I looked up at her and gave her a fake smile and she smiled back. I wrote a big No on the paper and threw it back at her while Mrs Aahna was solving an equation. Myra smile disappeared wen she looked at the paper. She glanced at me with crimson eyes. I don’t care!
LUNCH TIME
I walked down the crowded hallway as I made my way to my locker. Vihaan was in one of the teacher’s office to pick up test scripts. I dropped my books in the locker and picked a candy for my locker. I closed it then I saw Myra leaning against the next locker
“Hi Kyle”
“Hello Myra”
I started walking away but she followed me
“Why don’t you want to hang out with me?”
“Nothing I just don’t want to hang out with you”
“Well you have no choice”
She swerved in my pathway
“I do have a choice Myra..and my choice is that I am not interested in hanging out with you and your friends”
I made an attempt to move but she blocked me. I did the same and she blocked me
“What do you want?”
“Go on a date with me…simple”
“You should go on a date with someone you love and someone who loves you in return”
“I know”
She folded her arms
“Then go on a date with that person who is your boyfriend”
“I don’t have one”
“Well I have a girlfriend and I don’t have plan to have another one aside her”
She frowned
“Who is she?..Aakriti?”
“No…Not Aakriti”
“Now he is denying his girlfriend..I should have believed it when they said you are truly dating Aakriti – you are so old fashioned Kyle.. dating that Aakriti”
“Hey Myra listen to me I don’t know where you got that False rumor from…I am not dating Aakriti.. You can do me a favour and tell it to other gossipers”
I brought out my phone and showed Myra my wallpaper. Lana’s pictures was displayed on it
“This is my girlfriend..or does she look like Aakriti?”
“I don’t believe you…she is probably you younger sister”
“Too bad I don’t have a younger sister..I only have a twin sister and she is a Redhead not a brown haired girl – are we done now?”
She didn’t reply
“You still have to prove to me that she’s your girlfriend”
This girl is a psycho…what the hell is wrong with this India girl
“Give me her contact or Facebook username”
“For what?”
“To confirm what you just said”
“Or to frame me up that I’m dating you and Aakriti..it not going to work”
“Just give me a prove that you have a girlfriend”
“Sure I will but you have to stay away from me after you’ve proved that I have a girlfriend”
“Maybe”
“Hold on”
I clicked on my screen trying to video call Lana. We agreed to meet up during my lunch time since she will be free at school. Luckily for me it got connected and Lana showed up on the screen
“Hi Boo”
“Hello My love”
“What took you so long? I was waiting for your call”
“I’m sorry Hun…I got delayed by a girl who wants to go on a date with me”
Lana eyes widened
“Are you dating one of those belly dancer now Kyle?!”
(I giggled)
“No..no..my love”
“So what then?”
“Do me a favour of telling a girl that you’re my girlfriend…you can show her your own band”
“Our couples band right?”
“Yes”
Lana raised her wrist to show that she was wearing the same wristband we bought on our first date
“Just put her on the line”
I gave the phone to Myra but she refused it
“Where is she?! Tell her to stay away from you!”
Myra turned and walked away
“Chill my love she left already..your voice scared the hell out of her”
“Don’t go near her again Zachary”
Lana said in a calm tone
“Don’t worry love am sure she will back off now that she knows I really do have a girlfriend”
“She better not come close to you or else I’m coming straight to India to pull out her hair”
I laughed at Lana’s demonstration of how she would pull out Myra’s hair
“How is mom and dad?”
“They are Fine..I forgot to tell you, your dad came back home yesterday and I’m moving into your house this weekend”
“To take care of mom right?”
“Yes and to help with the house chores”
“Who is going to help your mom?”
“The maid at home and mom even hired another worker two days ago”
“So you have two maids now?”
“Exactly”
“And your dad ordered mom not to go to school again”
“Why?”
“The baby.. He insisted she stay at home cause she needs enough rest and he even called off every of his schedules overseas”
“So he is not travelling out of the country for business deals?”
“Yes..he want to stay back in the country till mom put to bed”
“What did mom say to that?”
“She said he doesn’t have to cancel his business deals because of her and the baby but his mind was already made up so mom had to give in”
“So any news from Kira?”
“No news yet..yes that reminds me,mom had a vision on Saturday night”
“What was it about?”
“She saw herself talking to Kira in her dream”
“Was Kira okay?”
“Yes mom said she looks fine in the vision”
“That means she is safe”
“Yes.. and mom hopes she contacts us soon”
“If kira calls give her my number okay?”
“Sure I will do that..you still can’t connect with her?”
“Yes and Mr Reyansh said I shouldn’t try to connect with her”
“Okay Kyle”
“Anything from Max?”
“I haven’t heard from him since the day we met at the Mall”
“He is not bothered about Kira”
“I don’t know Kyle..”
“He is a playboy and I doubt it if he loves Kira.. He only used Kira powers to heal his sister. I just hope he doesn’t come near Kira whenever she returns”
“Let just forget about him Zach”
“Okay… I miss you my love”
“Same her Zachary…but I still have five months left to live without you”
“It seems like five years”
“Exactly”
“Don’t worry before you know it am back home”
“I wish it was that easy Zach”
I heard a bell
“I’ve to go Kyle”
“Yeah we will talk in the night”
The call go disconnected. I placed my phone back in my pocket and made my way to the cafeteria
