Whatever weaknesses our friends or workmates might be having, let’s not put them off at all. Doing so may result in deleterious consequences that could never be dealt with.
Shirley gazed at her image in the mirror fixedly. Her eyes, red like beetroot, she felt downcast .She grimaced, and like a mad rhino, dropped the mirror impassively and left the dormitory with the agility of a cobra. She cast furtive glances around and with her hands covering her eyes, abruptly broke into tears.
Melancholy had swirled around her for a long time now, and she was nigh getting tired of it. She felt indignant at the fact that she was always the casualty when it came to matters pertaining punishment .She was a dull student and constant punishment in the wake of her failure to do well had become the order of her day.
Getting the basic concepts and comprehending them, then applying them in exams had proved to be above her head. She felt bewitched. She had experienced a chapter of nosedives and consequently, all teachers had been on her neck. She had rose to being the laughing stock of the school.
“Look at her! She is crying! This is not your home you damn hypocrite! Style up!” Those were some of the words that had really put her off and she was gradually throwing in the towel. She felt she had reached the peak of her folly and life was meaningless to her.
She looked up and her eyes darted across the place. She was surrounded by many students who kept mocking her. She let out a slight groan, fished a penknife from her side pockets and ouch! She pierced her neck. Blood gushed out of her in torrents and not being able to support herself, she fell with a thud, dead.
She had died. Just like that.
There was a mad rush that resulted in an unexpected pandemonium and everyone was blurting out, “Oh my God! What just happened! Jesus…” SHIRLEY was gone. Just like that.
