Chapter 2 Witch

  • Ae Ri's POV
  • I woke up panting heavily with beads of sweat on my forehead. I haven't had any nightmare ever since the death of my parents so why did I have one now.
  • I don't even understand the dream I had, it would have been much better if I understood.
  • I lay back on my bed but I couldn't close my eyes because of how scared I was. I clutched the sheets tightly with my eyes wide open till it was 6am.
  • I quickly got down from my bed and switched on the lights. I prepared my bath myself without waiting for the maids and in no time, I was seated in the bath tub.
  • After bathing, I left the bathroom and went to my room to dress for school. It was when I was dressing that the maids just came in.
  • "Good morning young miss" they greeted bowing their heads
  • "Morning" I answered not sparing them a glance
  • "Gosh!! She's just too rude, do we look like her mate?" I heard in my head
  • I turned back to look at the maids and I saw their heads were still bowed
  • That voice sounded like that of the head maid but she wouldn't dare say a thing like that to my face, what's going on?
  • I took my eyes back to my lotion and continue applying it on my body.
  • "Just the lotion she's using is enough to feed thirty children throughout a week" I heard again
  • I looked back at the maids but it didn't look like anyone of them said anything so I decided to face them to see if they're playing a prank on me.
  • "Why is she staring at us like that? Does she wants to kill us the same way she killed her parents?" I heard in my head again
  • "Leave the room" I said slowly trying to be as calm as possible
  • "Y... Young...."
  • "Now!!!!!" I screamed
  • They scurried out and closed the door behind them.
  • What's wrong with me? All the things I heard just now, where did they come from? Can I now read minds?
  • No, no that's not it! I've been thinking too much lately. That's why I had a nightmare and that's why this is happening. I have to stop thinking now.
  • I wore my uniform and picked up my back heading downstairs.
  • I sat in the dining room and was about eating the bread and tea when I heard something.
  • "She definitely doesn't know that this would be her last meal. Just a sip of the tea and she's gone" I heard the head maid's voice in my head
  • Are they planning to kill me through poison? I stood up abruptly and just left the house.
  • Different thoughts clouded my mind as I was seated in the car going to school. How come I can hear what is going on through people's mind?
  • That's not supposed to be possible right? But if it's not possible, what's the meaning of those things I've been hearing since I woke up?
  • I guess I'll find out when I get to school. I will see if I'm able to read the mind of the students before concluding in anything.
  • Few minutes later, we arrived at my school and I got down from the car and walked to class.
  • As usual, everyone cleared the way for me and I just walked to class but not before hearing the thought of one of the students.
  • "She's just too full of herself. I'm sure she killed her parents so she can have all their wealth to herself. Witch!!"
  • I stopped and stared at the girl. When she noticed me staring at her, she became scared and quickly bowed her head.
  • It means I heard right and yes, I can read minds. I think I'm done for!!
  • So everyone of them think I killed my parents, but why? Why will I kill the people I love so much when I'm not insane?
  • I took my eyes away from the girl and walked to my class. When I got in, I met the new transfer student and it's like I felt a connection with him.
  • I stared at him for a while before sitting down.
  • "Why did she come early today? Gosh!! Her arrogant behaviour disgusts me a lot" he said and I don't know why, but I felt a sting in my heart
  • "I just wish she leaves this school and never returns" he said in his mind again
  • "Can you please just stop it? Your thoughts are too loud" I said trying as much as possible not to show my emotions when I couldn't take it anymore
  • He raised his head and stared at me wide eyed
  • "Are you talking to me?" he asked pointing at himself but I just nodded my head
  • "You read minds?" he asked but I kept quiet and just brought out one of my books to read
  • Ye Jun's POV
  • I stared at the girl seated not too far from me. Is she human? Nah, I doubt that!
  • How will she be able to read someone else's mind if she's not supernatural? I stared at her quietly for a while before leaving the class.
  • I went to the library and pondered over what I just encountered few minutes ago.
  • "If she's not human, then what is she?" I asked myself a question which I had no answer to over and over again
  • After signing in frustration for a while, I stood up and began searching for books about supernatural in the library. Why didn't I think of it earlier?
  • I searched and searched until I finally found one. It looked old and rough probably because no one is interested in it.
  • I took it and went back to where I sat before opening the books.
  • The first one I came across was vampires.
  • They're known to be blood sucking creatures and I know that too but I never believed they exist.
  • I searched for their characteristics and it wasn't long before I found the one that said they read minds.
  • If this is true, does that mean Ae Ri is a vampire? If she's one, it means she sucks blood?
  • I gasped in shock and covered my mouth with my palm as realization dawned on me. I can't just concluded yet, let me check other supernatural.
  • I opened to the next page and found werewolves. I got interested in werewolves at a time and searched for everything about them but I don't think I saw anything that has to do with mind reading. Checking it once more won't hurt.
  • I read the characteristics from the beginning to the end but I didn't see anyone that said they could read thoughts.
  • The only thing I saw was that they could read the thoughts of their pack members whenever they're in their wolf form.
  • I opened to the next page and saw mermaids. I've never liked mermaids from the start and I don't know why.
  • I wanted to open another page but I decided to check the mermaid out first. I checked the characteristics but I didn't see anything about reading of minds so I moved on to the next one. I shouldn't have wasted my time.
  • I checked the last one there and found witches. Witches have always been known to be very powerful and I also knew that before.
  • If Ae Ri is a witch, then we're done for. But she doesn't look like a witch to me.
  • "Can you recognize a witch?" my subconscious mocked
  • I can't recognize a witch but her behaviour is supposed to be different if she's a witch.
  • So it means she's either a vampire or a witch but none of them suits her. She's really gentle and quiet. Although, she's rude and arrogant but I still don't think she can be a vampire or witch.
  • Ahh!!! I'm going crazy! I think I'm going to change school because I can't be in the same class with a strange person that can kill me within few seconds.
  • I'm really scared now.
  • "Mom, I don't want to be in this school anymore" I said within me as I left the library
