A GIRL IN A BOY'S SCHOOL
(Face The Problem(1)
It was Saturday and most people were out in the field playing while some people went home to meet their parents.
I was bored and I couldn't leave because I felt embarrassed.
What I did to Matt was so mean. I let my anger control me and now he must think I'm some kind of mad freak. I can't even build up the strength to face him and apologize for being rude and shouting at him.
I looked up at the ceiling.
Why does my life suck so much?
There was a knock on my door. I sighed before opening it.
It was Dad with a cup of coffee. He smiled.
"How are you feeling, Cerina?" I smiled.
"It's CeCe and I'm good."
He looked at the floor. I knew he wanted to say something.
"What is it?" I asked in a low voice, letting him in. He sat down on my bed and I sat next to him.
"I'm sorry." He said, looking at the cup of coffee in his hand.
I frowned. "You don't need to-" "I do." He said, looking at me.
"I left you all these years and I don't understand why... I just-"
I smiled. "Dad, it's fine. I thought I would be fine without you but I really need you." I looked at him with shine in my eyes when I saw fatherly love in his eyes.
"We will get through this, won't we?" I asked with a slightly determined tone.
We sat there for a while in comfortable silence.
"Cerina, is everything okay here? There were few complaints..." He said hesitantly.
I bit my lip.
"Yeah... don't worry about it.. it was nothing," I said, hoping he would just not talk about it.
"Cerina, I don't know what's going on but let me tell you one thing." I looked at him as he continued, "If there is a problem, instead of avoiding it... face it."
I smiled and nodded.
He kissed me on the forehead and left.
His words kept on spinning in my head.
Face the problem. I looked out of the window and I could see all the boys playing in the field. Few sitting on benches and some doing exercise.
I just stared outside in a daze. That's all I could do for now...
