"Wish I have a power to fight back to those bullies is school. It's not my fault that I was born in this world ugly. Is it a sin now if you were born Ugly.?" The little girl cry her heart out while sobbing in the corner of an empty room, soaked with whatever that black liquid all over her uniform.
"It's not like I can go back to my Mom's womb and ask her to reconstruct my face. Is that even possible?" Millet continue sobbing releasing the sadness that keep on lingering in her heart. She has no one beside here, even one friend she doesn't have that. She's alone, scared on the reality that no one will want, not ever.
"My heart is crying for this little Millet, Eklavu, what to do? Should we grant her a wish?" It was a witch living in some place where no one knows. Only a few people knows about their existence. They are the Good witch who grants wishes for those who deserve it and a KDrama addict.
They have a big screen in front where they can see the happenings outside their world. It is a modern one that came from the human earth. They are using it while being supplied by their magic. Every now and then they will use their broom to get what they need especially the new technology that the modern world developed as they are very fascinated in it
"Don't be in haste Kelavu, let me think first if it's okay to grant her that wish. You know it's not that easy, we need to see if there's a chance that darkness can eat her system. And you know what's going to happen if ever we didn't look into it first." It was Eklavu busy watching the Korean TV Series Penthouse, in her iPhone 12 Pro. She's on episode where Logan's twin appear.
"But I can say that she's a really a good kid. Look at her, just look at her Kelavu jebal and stop looking at your phone just even for a second. This is an important matters aish!"
"But Logan Lee has a twin!" It was Kelavu her eyes was as wide as the ocean because of the revelation. She was flabbergasted and astonished to what she has discover.
"Mworago!!!!!" Startled with the news Eklavu just tweaked her hair also with widened eyes.
Millet heard someone talking but she did not mind it coz maybe he's talking to someone else. But she suddenly stopped and think hard of what she heard. "I'm the only ugly kid here so maybe he's talking to me, and I am the Froggy."
Millet was about to cry again when an idea popped up in her head. She saw a frog on her side along with the bush, it's a small one. "This will do."
She walk slowly closer to where the frog is. Unhurried, she extend her hand to get the frog from the bush and her face can't be draw as she is also afraid that it might jump into her. Her hand is just an inches away when suddenly the kid blab something. "Oi!"
"Kokak, kokak, kokak, ahooo!"
"What! Are you talking to me!" Millet who was mad because of the sudden appearance of the kid was also startled and snap at him. She thought the frog will jump and will steal away her first kiss, but good thing the frog jump out in the different direction.
"Where's your head kid, we're the only one here. Are you for real? Stupid." It was the kid who has a white complexion. He looks cute with his eye glasses and his neat uniform. And he looks... Mad?
"What do you want, and I'm not froggy you - you cute kid!"
"Ano kako ang kailangan mo, baluga ka!"
"Did the frog eat your brain that you become like that or is that inborn to you?
Malditong bata na cute "You called me Froggy just a few minutes ago." She look at her digital watch and added "Or 6 minutes and 37 second ago."
I learned to always look on my watch because of Conan. That's why he have answer of everything because he has a track on time.
"Seriously, what do you want?" It was Millet, she continue walking and because she remember what those bullies did to her, as sad expression shows in her face.
"Why you didn't fight back there and just let them bullied you?" It was him, he's looking at him like I'm some lice that he wants to pulverize.
"Will it it change if ever I did that? I think they'll get mad more and will retaliate again with a more serious bullying that they can do." Millet as a soft kid to everyone doesn't have a guts to fight back. All she can do was to look down and wait for what they want to do. "And there's nothing new in all of these. I experienced a more serious one on my dormer school. I was beaten to death that time." She added.
"Then why not make yourself more stronger, you can do that at least right?"
"It's not just simple, I want to learn judo actually but I don't have money for that. And my step mother won't allow it" She said and look at her with her puffy eyes.
"Why? Is she a bad step mother like the one in Cinderella?" He asked while frowning and he looks really curious.
"Yeah, just like that."
"Hmmm, well whatever. It's your life I don't really have a say in it isn't there? But remember this, they will never stop until they can see that you're afraid to them, that you're weak. They will toy you in their hands and they will do anything to destroy you. Try to fight back for once. Being brave is not that bad. Learn to react, not that where you will just cry in the corner. You're 16 right? Be strong! You're still young, you will experience more once you get old. So it's better if you'll learn it now."
Millet feel amaze because of what the kid said. And some of her words really hit the spot in me. "Do you think I can?"
"I think you can, just believe in yourself."
"By the way what's your name?" Millet look at the kid and wait for his response.
"I'm Caramba, and I'm from just around here." He answered while looking at her.
Millet look at Caramba and she notice that Caramba is wearing a different uniform. She suddenly feel sad because she thought she will see him often here. "Ahh, I thought you're studying here. Thank you for the encouragement, I will do that. I will be brave!" She just said it like she's taking an oath with her hands up.
Caramba just smile and walk away and they go in separate ways. Millet can't help herself that's why she look back to where Caramba went. But she was greeted with an empty space, Caramba is gone already.
"Ehhh? Did he run?" Millet thought while frowning.
The next day....
Millet ready her self for school. She doesn't want to be late that's why she eat as fast as she can.
"Mom, I'm going!" She just shout and immediately run outside.
Millet run lile there's no tomorrow. This is also her way of exercising. She doesn't want to be weak anymore that's why she'll take care if her physical strength. She's about to enter in their room but she bumps into someone and both of them collapsed in the ground. "Awww!" It was Cathy - the one who loves to bully her.
"I'm Sorry!" And because Millet was used into doing this, she didn't think much and just say her sorry. Just like what she always do. She is so afraid and actually forgot what Caramba said to her yesterday. Her mind went blank and she wanted to runaway but her feet cannot move. She's also trembling with fears.
Cathy look at her soldiers and sign to them to bring Millet somewhere. And poor Millet who was so afraid didn't even fight and just go with them while her head is looking down.
But before everyone can go outside, the door suddenly close on it's own like someone push it. But there's no one outside. Suddenly, the cold breeze get into the windows and just like a tornado the 5 girls together with Cathy was carried away by the small tornado while the other kids inside was still in shock on what they saw.
On the other hand, Millet was also shock to what she saw. She can't move and since then, she become a stone. And her stone was displayed in front of their school.
