Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
Smartly, I was able to locate Kim’s room and I looked around in amusement.
Her pictures were all over on the wall and indeed, we had the same face. It was more like I was staring at myself.
I sat on the bed in a ruminative mood. What if all these were true? What if I really belong here?
But what happened? Why did I grow up in the streets? Why was I dumped?
I had so many questions and needed answers. Perhaps, I’d go for a DNA test when I meet her.
Shortly, I heard a knock on the door and felt disturbed as I wondered who it might be.
The knock came again and I left the bed and decided to go check it out.
I opened the door to behold a young male – one who I might say was cute.
“Kim!” He smiled widely while I kept mute and stared at him without letting him in.
Suddenly, his smiles faded and got replaced with a confused one
“What happened to your hair?” He asked the same question everyone’s been asking me”.
“Why’s it…long and red?”
I sighed and relaxed more on the door.
“I fixed it”, I said coldly.
“Huh? B…But why?”
“I have my reasons, mister. Its late. I’d love to get some sleep”.
His jaws dropped.
“Did you just call me mister?” He asked crankily.
“Since when did Williams change to mister? Are you angry with me, Kim?”
“I’m not. I’m just tired” I said with a sigh and made a sign like I wanted to close the door.
“Uh…I know its late, but…I just wanted to give you these” he said and stretched out the polythene bag he had with him.
I stared at it briefly before collecting it
“Thanks” I muttered and tried closing the door, but he stopped me. What the hell?
“Uh…one last thing…I must admit – the new hair looks good on you” he said with a smile while I just shot him a stare.
I didn’t say anything but closed the door
I returned to the bed to sit and opened the polythene. Hm. They were cupcakes. I wonder who he is to Kim. I can’t believe he came all the way here to give her these
I took out one of the cakes and had a bite and hmm. It tasted yummy.
And suddenly, the thought niggled at me
That was the first time I was collecting something from someone that saw me as a friend.
I paused and looked down at the cupcakes.
So, this was what it felt like – having friends who wouldn’t mind coming late at night just to give you Cupcakes? Friends who’d take you to the party?
So, this is what it felt like?
Kim ji (Kind)
I stood at the balcony nervously, waiting for him.
I couldn’t help but feel twitchy about it.
After a while, I heard the door open and I turned to see him coming out.
Okay; I guess it’s now.
“Kim?” He called and came closer to me.
“Good morning” I greeted with my gaze on the floor.
“Yeah…good morning. Uh…why didn’t you come in?” He asked and I took in a deep breath.
“Actually…I came to pass an important information to you.” I paused and sighed again.
“I’ll be leaving, sir. I…I need to embark on a journey with my mum. So, I’m afraid you might have to look for another cook”.
His jaws dropped immediately.
“What?” It came out in a whisper.
“Wh…What are you talking about? What do you mean you’re leaving?”
“I’m sorry, But the urgency just came up and I have to leave with my mum. I’m really sorry”.
He scoffed and ruffled his hair.
‘Is it really necessary?” He asked.
“Yes- my mom’s already waiting for me. I just felt it wise to inform you” I replied and he sighed and ruffled his hair again.
“So…when will you be coming back?” He asked and I bit my lip, knowing that wasn’t certain.
“I’m…I’m not really sure. But…”
“What?” He cut me off.
“What exactly is going on?”
“It’s…its nothing serious. Just…a personal issue.” I replied and looked down at the floor and for a while, he didn’t say a word.
“Can I…have your contact?” He asked gruffly and I shook my head.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t have a phone”.
“What?” He flinched.
“Fine! Just stay here and I’ll get my phone so I could give you mine” he said and I nodded slowly.
Then, he turned around and went into the house.

Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
I brushed my hair and made it fall on my shoulders before leaving the room, ready for my rescue mission. This time around, I dressed more simple – considering the fact that I needed to go as a cleaner.
I was about climbing down the stairs when a grumpy looking boy showed up.
“You!” He snarled and grabbed my hand.
“You’ve really got some nerves, huh? How dare you punch me in the face in front of my friends?”
Oh! Let me guess? He’s the step brother.
“You really think you’ve grown enough wings to talk back at me, right? You really think you can stand me??”
“If you don’t let me go in the next two seconds, you’ll have yourself to be blame for it” I stated icily and he fumed.
“You pest! You’ve really got some nerves, huh? Right! Let’s end it once and for all! You want a fight, I’ll…”
Before he could finish up his statement, I punched him on the nose and kicked his leg.
“And you’re not even my size” I stated and kicked him again, making him lose balance and fall off the stairs.
“Ahhhh” he screamed as he rolled on the stairs.
I stood and watched him quietly until he got to the end of the stairs then, I went to squat in front of him.
“There’s just one thing stopping me from killing you”,I said calmly, looking into his bleeding face.
“You’re lucky” I added and left.
Kim nana (Crazy)
I sat tiredly on the floor, my back leaned against the wall.
My head and waist ached a lot – all the joints in my body. I was so tasty and hungry.
Oh, God! I’ve never felt this way my entire life. How will I get out of here?
I closed my eyes and tried to take in the pain and everything. But after a while, I heard the door open and opened my eyes to see who it was.
It was a guy.
What did they want again? Or is it time to move?
He came towards me and I wanted to move back but couldn’t.
“What do you want?” I asked again and he looked behind before looking back at me.
“Hey”, he called and squatted in front of me.
“I’m here to help you. Josh sent me” he whispered and dipped his hand into his trouser pocket, bringing out a pocket knife.
Surprisingly, he cut my ropes with it, making me free.
“Here” he placed the knife in my palm.
“Make use of this. The boys are having a meeting and now is a perfect time to escape. But you still need to be careful. Try to go out through the fence and keep running till you get to the junction. Josh is there waiting for you. Please, you need to be fast and smart” he concluded and stood up.
I was gobsmacked and watched him leave the room. I couldn’t even say a word the whole time.
I took my eyes to the knife with my hand.
Was this for real? Could he be trusted? But who’s Josh?
I thought for a while and finally decided to take the risk. Then, I stood up and left the room.
