I explained the questions Jason failed, carefully to him and he listened attentively and when he attempted the question again he got it all.

 

“So? This seem pretty easy to you, why did you fail it at first?” I asked as I marked his correct answers.

 

“I have no idea.” he replied.

 

“Look mathematics doesn’t need anything but focus, so I have no idea what distracted you at first but please try to focus next time! Cause honestly you’re actually doing great, well if you continue like this, I’ll be gone before you know it, just like you wanted me to!” I tell him “I know, that’s my plan!” he smirked.

 

“But don’t make it too soon so my money can get a little extended” I added and he burst into a laugh saying. “what?”.

 

First time I heard him laugh though.

 

“It’s not funny, the only reason any one in the entire world is working is because of money, honestly I don’t like this job and I am sure one heck of a liar if I say I like you.!” I said to him.

 

“And we don’t like you either so the feeling’s mutual!” Jason smirked.

 

“We?” I repeated.

 

“Yeah. Me and my entire classmates, they already know so much about you, not that they know any good side about you, you have all bad qualities!” Jason scoffed,

 

And I gasped. “Bad qualities? And you think you have good qualities, you’re rotten both on your inside and outside Jason, I’m trying my best to cope with a brat like you but your dumb phony little brain won’t allow you to see what I’m trying to make out of you, I wonder how your parents breathe around you, maybe it’s because of you’re their only child, or maybe your friends are tired of you, you’re nothing but a bubble head, gormless weak-minded ass hole, you get that?” Yep I was pretty mad.

 

“Wow!” Jason yelled. “You just insulted the daylight out of me!”

 

“And I plan to do more if you talk bad about me next time.” I said as a matter of factly

 

“Your boyfriend or date buddy shouldn’t try and get on your bad side if he doesn’t want to see what’s really hidden in you!” Jason rolled his eyes.

 

“Shut up and let’s move to the next topic, I’ll be leaving soon!” I said and he breathed out a sigh of relief saying “Finally!”

 

I talked about another topic with him showed him how to solve it and this time we get to draw diagrams, he said he found it pretty easy and told me to leave and of course I did. I gave him an assignment with twenty questions. Wow I was pretty mad.

 

He complained about ten being too much and worse of all twenty, but I told him it was nothing and left with a blink of an eye.

 

That kid is such a pain, I’ve never insulted anyone like that before, I never insult, I’m a nice girl, he’s bringing out all the badness in me. And no way, I don’t have bad qualities. He does. –

 

“Hey mom!” I smiled seeing my mom in the living room immediately I got home.

 

“Finally, i get to see you back from work! It’s your third day how do you feel?” my mom asked. “It’s nice!” I said, well it is nice ever since Jason has been complying but I just hope he stops bad mouthing me.

 

“Okay I’m just about to prepare dinner.” my mom said.

 

“This late?” I asked

 

“Yeah I want your dad to eat with us too.” My mom said and I nodded, that’s really thoughtful.

 

“Okay then I’ll be in my room” I said and my mom nodded.

 

I sighed as I carefully dropped my bag on my bed and stripped my clothes off my body.

 

I made it to my shower and couldn’t feel more calm when the warm water beat my back.

 

Nothing is more relaxing than this, I have had a bad day.

 

Jason.

 

I walked back to my room and dressed in the most comfortable baggy clothes ever.

 

I suddenly remembered my date with Neil tomorrow and realised I have nothing to wear.

 

I opened my closet wide enough for me to see I really have nothing good to wear.

 

Suddenly I saw the dress I wanted to wear to prom, but didn’t go, somehow that night of prom I just didn’t want to go to prom and I didn’t go, which I didn’t regret one bit. My mom had bought the dress for me all psyched about me going to prom but I killed her excitement when I lied I was coming down with a cold, which I wasn’t.

 

I brought out the wheat coloured dress and place it on the bed. I looked at it and somehow it looked smaller in my eyes. But it’s elastic so it can pull down and cover my thighs, I place the dress back in it’s place and closed my closet, I’m wearing the dress, I really have nothing to wear and it’s my only pretty cloth.

 

I laid on my bed and played with my phone, suddenly wishing Neil could call again so I could hear his voice. Wait! Do I still have feelings for him??

 

Minutes later I heard my mom voice calling out my name and I knew it was time for dinner. The three of us has dinner that night and I could see the happiness in my dad eyes. Family matters so much.

 

I tired back to my room and before I knew it I was fast asleep

I groaned angrily when I couldn’t find my maroon coloured boots that went with my necklace, I need to have everything together, so this date would go perfectly. Neil already called saying he wanted to check on me and I know he wanted to know if I’m still ready about the date and I made sure I sounded very psyched about it and we fixed a time which is 8:00pm, that will give me time to teach Jason and then go on my date. Easy peasy

 

 

I got my stuff ready in my bag, my necklace and earrings, I’ve never been on a date before.

 

Wow, okay so I’m a bit flushed and nervous about this one.

 

I wore the dress I’ve planned for today and my jaw dropped when I stared at my reflection on my mirror, I’ve never wore the dress before I only wore it before prom night and didn’t even go to prom.

 

Did I grow taller?

 

I’m sure I did, cause the dress didn’t just hug every inch of my body, but was also short and the elasticity didn’t help at all. It was armless, leaving my shoulder and neck exposed. I sighed, well on the other end, it looks kind of sΒ£xy, so it’s staying.

 

I’ve never looked like this before.

 

I grabbed a very big jacket from my closet, the jacket was long and big, so when I put it on, it covered my thighs and stopped at my knees, it was like a robe but in a khaki version.

 

 

The jacket covered the dress completely and also my body, I packed my hair up, dropped my phone in my bag and left the house.

 

The bus drive was hectic but I got there in Time.

 

As always Mrs Huggins greeted me with a smile before I left for Jason’s room.

 

I got to Jason’s room and the door was open already and getting in I found him on the bed, with his phone, making a call.

 

He ended the call immediately and turned to me.

 

“Elsa?” he called, like he was irritated about something.

 

“What?” I snapped, annoyed by the way he called me and slammed the door.

 

“I thought you weren’t coming today, thought you had a date?” Jason blurted.

 

“My date is none of your business and yes I do have a date, and also I won’t ever miss our lesson now get your butt ready!” I said and walked to his study table to place my bag.

 

Jason got down from his bed. “You’re going on a date and you’re dressed like that?” Jason said eyeing my khaki jacket.

 

“Just get your butt over here.” I said and he came to sit down without saying a word.

 

Wow he is listening to me.

 

“Okay can we get this lesson over with, I’m getting sleepy!” Jason said.

 

“I know you’re indirectly saying my class is boring but I don’t care!” I said as I pulled out my textbooks.

 

I started on a new topic, explaining about it and I had to draw a diagram, the diagram I drew didn’t look very good and I got mocked by Jason, which I very well expected. I ignored him.

 

After treating about three more subject. I asked about his assignment and was shocked when I saw he got all twenty of them. He just held on a proud smirk when he noticed how shocked I was.

 

“Well I have nothing to say rather than, good job” I tell him.

 

“And I think I deserved it!” Jason smirked.

 

“Okay, so I’ll be dropping another assignment–

 

“What? no way!” Jason exclaimed.

 

“What?” I was confused.

 

“Can you not give me an assignment. Please?” Jason said shocking me with his please. “I cracked my head up for this, it took me hours and tomorrow my mom said you won’t be coming cause you won’t be coming on weekends and I have this Saturday and Sunday to prepare for my birthday, so an assignment will just be left untouched.” he explained. “Oh okay, I understand, no assignment for you then,” I said and stood up.

 

“What’s the time” I asked.

 

He glanced at my phone. “7;30pm” he said and I gasped.

 

Well I can still get in time for my date.

 

I quickly shoved my books inside my bag, and brought out my necklace and earrings.

 

“That’s it for today lesson Jason, now please get me a mirror!” I ordered.

 

“What?” he laughed. “Are you late for you date.”

 

“Just get me a mirror” I almost yelled and he gave me a look before getting me one.

 

“Well thank you.” I tell him as I placed the square shaped mirror in front of me.

 

Jason stood behind me and watched me wear my necklace.

 

“No matter what accessory you wear, your clothes already killed it all, you look like a lost passenger.” Jason said and I rolled my eyes. “Just shut up.” I yanked.

 

I grabbed my earrings and quickly placed it on both my ears and I look good. I guess.

 

I stood up and carried my bag, I dropped it again when I realised my ugly jacket is still on my body.

 

I loosened the ropes around my body and took off the jacket.

 

“No f**king way” Jason scoffed.

 

“What?” I looked up at him.

 

“You look hot!” he smirked.
