Their sarcastic words were a weight on my chest. My head was lowered, but I was aggrieved by the situation.
Who do they think they are to keep looking down on me? Abruptly, I snapped my head upward, the fury in my eyes burning bright.
“Oh? Look at dear Erica. She's upset from our words.” The very sight of Tiana nauseated me.
Slap! The sound echoed in the small space. Startled, everyone fell silent and stared at me.
I had been unable to bear with their words anymore, so I had slapped her. In seconds, a bright red handprint emerged on Tiana's face.
The mere sight of it seemed painful. It was as if I was addicted to hitting others, for it seemed like a frequent occurrence recently. All I needed to do was raise my hand and land it on the cheek. No hesitation from my side at all.
