"What do you think you're doing?"William was furious. The anger wasn't directly shown through any action, but his emotions were enough to pierce through the air so everyone around him could feel it."I won't let you go to Noah.""Oh? And how are you going to stop me?"William ran straight towards Saha. She braced herself for the impact. Instead, William mockingly did a little spin around Saha, attempting to just evade her. She stuck out her leg and tripped him, making him crash onto the ground."Who do you think you are!"He tried to kick Saha from the ground. She hops backward and just barely dodged the kick. In retaliation, Saha kicked William in the stomach with a thump. He clenched his stomach and called for Mackenzie."Get her away from me!"Mackenzie charged at Saha and tackled her to the ground. Saha was completely overpowered by Mackenzie, being pinned to the ground. Saha gripped Mackenzie's hair with all her might and
It was Sunday morning.I looked out the window of my dorm. There were some students who were already awake, frolicking on the path, youth, leaning on railings, laughing, talking with friends. The rising sun coloured the atmosphere in an orange tint.I was somewhat bored.I guess I'll go to the mall.As I made my way inside, I saw that the centre was practically empty, it was to be expected since it was so early. There were employees preparing the stores for opening, only a scarce few cafes and retail stores were open.Now that I'm here, I'm not really sure what I'm going to do.I slowly made my way around the mall, inspecting the storefronts which had yet to open for the day. Suddenly, someone called out to me from behind."Ollie!"It wasn't Maia, it was Trista.It came to somewhat of a pleasant surprise to me."Hey,""So, what are you doing here?""I was just looking for something to do in the morni
"We shall now vote on the idea that: All class points in year one will be revised to a fluid merit-based system, with the ability to increase or decrease class points based on performance in examinations."Thisnew rule would've been one that strongly favoured the higher classes. Based on the class systems, the higher classes would naturally be able to increase their class points with the lower classes losing their class points. It was a blatant 'rich get richer, poor get poorer' system. The school approved this based on the idea that the school was already a meritocracy so this didn't seem any more unusual. Even so, this was still biased.Caleb however, did not mind this obvious discrimination when he put forward the idea, for he had his own goals in mind.The year one student council members sat around an awkwardly large table. Basically, everyone had already decided whether or not they were going to vote for the bill.Everyone in the student counc
I didn't really need to ponder that much about what Maia and Noah were up to.It was way before my alarm was set to ring when I heard a knock. I had just barely woken up when they decided it was a good time to start speaking."Ollie, I need a favour."It was Maia, and thus began the second round of pointlessly speaking through my door."What is it?""I need to borrow 1500 points."It was a very sudden request, given that Maia likely has a lot of points anyways, I was confused why she needed these points from me.Then again, I guess she was planning to do something against Caleb."I'll pay you back double the amount once I'm done."This sounded like the premise of a very risky investment, maybe even a scam.Although given her rank and status, I deduced that it likely wouldn't be hard for her to pay me back, even a hefty sum like 3000 points."I assume you're not going to tell me why you need these points?"
I woke up to the sound of my phone beeping.
A day had passed since I saw Maia.It was Monday morning so I began packing my bag for class. The classrooms were very close to the dorms so I didn't need to worry about being late.I had a bitter taste in my mouth. What was the letter about? What was Maia talking about? It was uncomfortable.Was I missing something?Is there something I haven't noticed yet?*I made my way into the classroom for the first period, taking my seat beside Noah. He was speaking to the girl behind him."Hey, Saha.""Hello, slug."She was a very uninviting person. She was often alone, without a circle of friends to be with. The only person who ever seemed to talk to her was Noah. She was without a doubt mean and cold to everyone, but it seemed to be intensified even more around Noah."I hear it's going t
The two of us walked into the convenience store."Anyways, enough about that, while we're here, let's have some fun!""We're in a convenience store, not an amusement park..."At this school, each student gets an allowance based on their rank, class and test results. The points are basically a one-to-one imitation of the dollar in terms of value. However, the points can only be spent in the school.Points can be earned in the following ways:Class Points, Class A - 1000 points, Class B - 500 points, Class C - 200 points, Class D - 100 points (Per month).Rank Points, each student gets (100 - [their rank]) points multiplied by 10. (E.g. Rank #2 would earn (100-2) multiplied by 10 equalling 980 points.) (Per month).Test Points, (During midterm and End-of-Year exams only, for each of the four tests), a score above 70% earns 100 points, a score above 80% earns 300 points, a score about 90% earns 1000 points and
I removed the envelope from the cupboard. A neatly folded sheet of paper was inside. I looked at the contents of the letter, a single sentence."I'm waiting for you."What was this esoteric message? This was not what I was expecting. Nothing else was found on the letter, no name, no reference to anything related to the senderWas I missing something? This feeling was eerily familiar.I took the kettle off the stand and poured water into my cup of instant noodles. The steam brushed my face, warming me up in an instant.*It was Saturday, during which, students could do basically anything they wanted as there were no scheduled classes. I was not someone who overly enjoyed usual recreation activities. As I watched the rising sun through the window, I pondered what I was going to do.There seemed to be someone knocking on the door."Ollie,"It was a voi
