First day back at school. There was the usual excitement and of course, some sort of sadness, because who ever wants the holidays to come to an end? Definitely not Amara.
She knew she had offended a lot of her friends. Her not-keeping-in-touch policy, albeit subconscious was beginning to cause trouble. Her terrible phone which chose the days it wanted to work randomly was not making matters any better.
Where does one start begging from? Who does one start with? And knowing how much it annoyed her, she was really praying that none of the people she was to appease asked her what she brought back before she offered to give them anything.
That was the first mistake she had made. Being too friendly. Helping everybody and caring without even being asked. Now, that wasn’t a bad thing but she now had an obligation to keep that up and it could be tiring.
Amara sat in her seat and fiddled with her phone so that she didn’t have to look up and see her friends come in to class. She could start greeting and apologizing later. Right now, she wanted nothing but solitude.
