Strong gusts of chilling air swirled around the metal bench she was seated on.
The blue paint of the bench faded into almost off white with a thin layer of moss covering its side armsets, sparkling dew drops floating in air collecting around it.
Karma was suspended for a week taking notice of 'no bullying' policy of school. Rumors speared like forest fire of how 'vicious' the electric blue eyed girl could be.
Geralt believed that Karma was framed and asked her not only once but countless times to say the truth but the petite girl didn't budged knowing if Atlanta told everyone about her escapades, Gerald would be beyond furious.
She felt like a whore.
Karma refused to go home rather running away to the nearby park. Her small feet carrying her as far as she could go.
Away from the disappointed eyes of Geralt. She hated Atlanta. Her mind trying to digest the fact that not only the jade eyed lioness tried ruining her but completely stripped her of any dignity left behind.
Her friends would never talk to her again. She would be thrown into a dark world and she was terrified....she only had Alaric now..as long as he loved her, everything would be fine.
"Karma" Platinum blonde hair contrasting to golden hairs of karma was kissed by wind, flowing with breeze. Atlanta came running towards the girl stopping right infront of her panting harshly.
"Listen Karma ...."she chided as soon as she regained her breathing sitting beside the girl who didn't seem to meet her jade irises.
"I am not sorry for what I did" she puffed out.
Karma stayed quiet not knowing what to say as she fiddled her fingers together.
"Listen Karma, you aren't the first girl Alaric has destroyed, he is not what he appears to be."
"How dare you?" Karma glared at the girl.
"Is it not enough? You trying to destroy my life? Now you wish to take away the one good thing I have." Karma stood up walking away.
"Listen to me stupid girl. I am warning you because I have seen the consequences of his actions-" Atlanta followed her.
" Enough! Please just let me be." Karma ran away leaving behind everything that could have saved her life.
2 months later
Time, the strongest string of uncertainty that moved lives like a puppet on show.
Karma's eyes were no longer the electrifying hues of cyan they used to be, murkiness and sadness whirling like a maelstrom sucked every ounce of energy she had.
The girl locked herself in her room sitting for hours in a chair, pouring herself in books..only those papers were her escape, even for an hour she forgot what had she lost.
They saved her, as long as she loved her books they never left her behind.
At first Geralt thought that it was a phase because she had been suspended but when her health started dwindling he sensed something was wrong.
Karma refused to talk to anyone. Violet tried as much as she could but even when the smaller girl smiled, she couldn't help but see how fake it was..Karma was slipping right through their fingers.
"I was a stupid girl falling for charms and appearances.
If only I had listened to Atlanta, if only I had paid heed to her warnings.
I was not even aware of the magnitude of results. Outcomes of the deeds I was commiting were always hidden from my shallow eyesight...or were they?"
The therapist gave her an encouraging smile.
"Maybe not, the small actions always indicated to my upcoming destiny but I was so blinded by love that the fine line between reality and dreams blurred.
I had sex with Alaric the very next day because I thought that would keep him to me, that would change him. That I would tame the beast."
She chuckled dryly no more tears left behind to cry or express greif, she felt numb.
"I couldn't stop crying when he threw me out of his house right after taking my virginity, he said that I knew it wasn't serious...ever, pathetic tears dribbling down my eyes were untamable.
I was barefoot walking down the streets in the afternoon sun, the heat burning me in the fire of vengeance when I saw police cars lining up by the side of the lake.
Wide Yellow paper stopped netizens from stepping inside the boundary of investigation but I sensed it...even before seeing it with my own eyes, I knew it.... something was weighing upon my soul.
I asked them about the incident that what had happened and they told me." A single tear left her eyes closely followed by others.
"A girl had drowned.... Atlanta her id was there but I refused to believe, the only thing I was certain before all this was how i would apologize to her.
I had friends....the ones that never ever asked me if I was alright, a best friend who couldn't care less what I was doing and then there was she so selfless and kind.
She wanted to show me through all that she did that Alaric didn't cared about me, what was she of mine to worry so much? I wasn't her responsibility, she could have let me buried deep in my sins but she tried.
And there I was standing with her notebook and id by the lakeside waiting for them to take her deadbody out of the lake."
Karma sobbed, crying frantically, hiding her face in the palm of her hands.
