Chapter 15 Invisible Pain
- As soon as Nikita heard what I said, she immediately gave me her full attention. She knows that my mom and I have never had a fight, especially not over something small or because of something superficial. It also happened just now. From the movement of her eyes, I can see her curiosity about the root of our misunderstanding. I quickly averted my gaze to cover the conflicting feelings I was experiencing. It scares me to think that she can read them in the blink of an eye. For some reason, I'd still want it to hide.
- "Why? What’s the problem?" She asked in a low tone that I could only hear. Nikita tried to catch my attention by touching one of my shoulders, but I did not look in her direction. "When we last spoke, didn't you say that she had once again left your home?"
- I inhaled deeply and exhaled slowly. I don't want her to judge my mom only because of what she is doing in her life, but if it's not just her, I don't know what else to say. Nikita has earned my trust more than any of our other mutual friends. After I've finished ranting, I'm certain that she'll bombard me with questions. I am prepared for that, and I have nothing more to hide from her at this point. She is very knowledgeable about me. It is not in my nature to conceal information from her, as I treat her as my sibling and not just a friend.
