"Scarlet, I told you many times to always wear the watch from London." Mrs. Williams said in a cold way.
"But aunt gifted me it, and i have never worn it." Scarlet tried to reason with her mother.
"That isn't what a business typhoon's daughter should wear...that doesn't define your status. " Mrs. Williams snatched away the watch from her, "I don't know why that lady even thought of gifting this..."
"She is your sister! You know she's broke!" She nearly screamed on her mother.
"Scarlet! We didn't teach you to scream on elders" Mr. Williams entered the room, fixing his sleeves.
"You taught nothing except acting like we are a perfect family!" Scarlet stormed out of the room and locked herself in the study.
Scarlet was right, the Williams were not a perfect family. She witnessed fights between her parents ever since she can remember, she recalls those fights sometimes turning physical, she saw how her father used come home drunk with a new conquest every month, she witnessed her mother calling someone everyday and going out for 5 hours after that, she witnessed the biggest fight this year which lead to the decision that after she graduates her parents would get a divorce. And since childhood it was the help who took care of her. The maids and the butlers cared about her more than her parents did. She always blamed this events on the fact that they were so rich.
Scarlet felt as if no one loved her except Kevin, her boyfriend of a year. In this one year, she knew that she had finally got the love she deserved. many of her friends were jealous, they tried hard to not let them get together. Yet when she is thinking about the future...3 months from now her parents would file the divorce and she would be asked with whom she wants to stay.
"No one" Scarlet whispered to herself.
"Mistress, your parents are calling you downstairs. You will have to leave in five minutes." The house maid called her, but she didn't reply, "Miss Scarlet?"
"Tell them I'm coming" Scarlet tried not let her emotions overpower her.
Scarlet cleaned up her face and changed into her summer dress, they were going to West Shoreline for a few days. They normally visit that place, as they used to live there till Scarlet turned 7. And Scarlet was just like that place, calm like the breeze, yet would become like the waves when angry, though has a lot of rich influence is welcome towards people of other class. Her flaming red hair just like the sun at dusk, she had doe eyes which were as blue as the sea and her skin tone a lighter shade of tan. She really seemed like the sea goddess, she was not that tall yet she was blessed with a pretty face and the talent of swimming. She was unlike most of the rich girls of her school.
Scarlet came out of the house with her luggage, as she saw Kevin waiting outside for her. Along with him was Jennifer, his best friend...Scarlet didn't like her at all. They didn't notice her, might be that's why she could hear what Jennifer commented. Jennifer, that slut! She said that this was the last holiday of the unbroken family, and that Scarlet is the main reason why their parents are getting divorced...they should have given up Scarlet. This was enough to trigger her anger. Like seriously? Who asked her to comment on someone else's family.
"Jen! If you are brave enough say it in my face!" Scarlet pulled her away from Kevin.
"It's my wish, and i don't wanna talk to you" Jennifer was going to away, but Scarlet stopped her.
"Your object of discussion was me, and thus don't back bitch you coward" she put her middle finger in the air and ignored her other insults.
She kissed Kevin goodbye and then was on her way to West Shoreline.
Beline was still playing her favorite MMORPG while in the next room, her parents and her brother were packing the luggage. They were not that rich, yet her parents always tried to give her and her sister, Beth everything they wanted. Beline wasn't the real daughter of the family, neither was Beth...they were adopted when they were 8 and 5 respectively. Beline only knew the fact, and she was thankful to them. One thing she hated was, her classmates used to bully her and ignore her just because she was adopted (and people thought that just because she was orphaned, she might be an illegitimate), not like the other rich and pretty girls.
"Hey RPG goddess!" Mrs. York came in, "You realize you aren't ready yet. Don't you?"
'uh-hu...a little bit more, I just need 132 mana more." She leaned towards the screen, "And I'll just need to defeat this cyborg for that."
"Okay, but only one" Mrs. Williams laughed and started to clean the room before they leave.
"Beline! They boys are here!" Her sister came shouting in.
"Shit! UGHHH..." Beline got up and faced her sister, "they are here real early."
"We aren't. wake up! It's 10 already." Her boyfriend, Oliver hugged her.
"What? I don't care I'll just go wearing what I'm wearing now. As if someone's gonna click my pic and post it." Beline closed her pc and the ac.
Suddenly a flash came, someone did click her pic. Yep, and it was done by none other than the great, Marcel. Marcel is Beline's best friend he was the first few who knew Beline's secret. Beline was used to Marcel and Oliver's antics. They had always been like these, they are the one's who had always protected her from those mean kids from school. And Beline was enough herself, she was total bad ass, a geek and a kind of tomboy. There had been many occasions when Beline almost beat them up, and the boys got her out of trouble.
Beline always wanted to go to West Shoreline, and thus the family decided to go there before Beline shifts to Parbay for her college. And well her everything matched with Parbay's lifestyle and the subject she wants to pursue. She is great with electronics, smart and well as I have mentioned earlier a bad ass, geek and a kinda tomboy. She has poker straight brunette hair with a blue streak done, Large hazel eyes, fair like anything, tall and slender. If you looked at her you'd know that she was an RPG goddess. She knew all the ways of winning all the RPGs. She even went for a Inter-school and brought back the first trophy for her school. Yet there were many people who hated her.
Beline finally decided to freshen up and change her clothes after a lot on convincing by the boys. But that's Beline, she'll never ditch her signature black clothing and sneakers. She normally wore a top and a skirt/shorts. Beline...Beline...Beline...She'll never change.
"Beline, are you seriously trying to fit in that RPG into the luggage?" Marcel asked softly and as calm as possible.
"Just like the way you can't stay without your camera...RPG is my true love!" She smiled and closed the chain.
Just then she noticed Oliver giving a 'What?' look. She went towards him, kissed and hugged, "well next to RPG, you are there" And all started to laugh.
"Inform us when you reach" Oliver leaned into the car to kiss her again.
"I would" She kissed back.
"Bye" Marcel gave a wide grin.
"Marcel! Bye! And Please..Be a bit jolly. I wanna see fun Marcel when I'm Back" Beline gave a calm smile.
"You are going just for five days!" Both the boys said together.
Beline waved the boys bye, before leaving for West Shoreline.ns 126.96.36.199da2
