I walked hurriedly towards the school’s hostel. The cold air rose to my feet and then to my breasts, making my nipples hard.
I walked past her. She wasn’t smiling. She had a strange elusive smell on her. Like that of blood. She stopped and turned towards me.
I stopped too. She started coming towards me. Slow steps with a scary face. I didn’t know what to do. To run or to shout.
Don’t run, she’s just a girl, I said within me.
She increased her pace. Just few steps to get to me. I started to pee. The hot urine flowed down to my trousers.
Just then, a slap landed on my face.
“Wake up, fool! Why are you peeing on your mattress?”
I woke up immediately. It was mum’s voice.
