Cyber Bullying -Part 7
Bullying is very difficult for children, or anyone, to deal with. It makes you feel afraid and degraded and often makes a person feel worthless.
Unfortunately, bullying also makes you stop wanting to go out because you’re scared you might see the person or people bullying you.
The next day was sunny and mild, Kayla’s mum felt guilty that she hardly spent time with her daughter, so today she decided to leave everything aside and focus on having a chilled day with her.
She heads to Kayla’s room, opens the door and gets shocked by seeing food and sweet papers spread out, Kayla is covered with the blanket from head to toe.
She knows her daughter would only sleep like that after watching a horror movie.
Kayla groans, while turning to make herself comfy and continues with her beauty sleep.
Her mum won’t let her sleep any longer. She draws the curtains, letting the sun’s ray shine throughout the room.
She walks towards the bed, shakes Kayla gently and tells her it’s time to wake up but that doesn’t help much, she’s still in a deep slumber.
Kayla’s mum : Kayla wake up, it’s 9am,
I have some exciting things planned for us.
Kayla clears throat, turns around slowly while eyes still closed. She pulls the blanket down, eyes opened slightly, with a confused look.
“uhm mum raised eyebrow, what are you going on about and why are you shouting”
Kayla’s mum : I’m not shouting, you just woke up and clearly not in your right senses as yet laughs and hugs her daughter. “I know i haven’t spent much time with you and I want to make up for it today, go freshen up and I’ll make breakfast okay.”
Kayla smiles and agrees.
She gets out of bed, stretches and heads to the bathroom.
Her mother had come at the right time and distracted her.
Her friends, the chat account hasn’t crossed her mind as yet.
she’s happy, she’s surprised that her mother is making an effort to spend the day with her. She looks forward to see what her mum has planned.
At Naomi place :
It’s almost 10am, Naomi is awake but has no strength or energy to get out of bed.
She sits up, finds Tash and Hailey in such awkward positions.
Hailey is sleeping on the leg side with her legs facing tash face and tash is holding Hailey’s legs as if it were a pillow.
Naomi bursts into laugher, she grabs her phone to take a photo only to realise it’s off.
She gets out of bed, puts the phone to charge and goes to freshen up.
She comes out of the bathroom and see the girls are awake, the splitting headache is visible on their faces.
Tash and Hailey : “we need a tablet nalz, my head is cracking.”
Naomi “let’s eat first, then we need to sort this room out or else my mum is going to go all dragon mode on me, then we can chill or maybe go by Kayla since we haven’t spoken to her the entire night.”
The sudden guilt appeared on haileys face when she heard Kayla’s name.
She remembered what she had done last night. Her phone is off so she can’t log in to see the comments until she returns home. She thought Kayla would have already seen the comments by now so she would get to see it when she goes there.
They tidy the room, make something to eat, then shower and get ready to leave to Kayla’s place.
Although they are still hangover, they knew they can rest by Kayla while telling her about the epic night in return they would hear about how she spent her night.
Back at Kayla’s place :
Kayla’s mum made pancakes topped with ice cream, chocolate pieces, golden syrup, and sliced strawberries laid out on a fancy plate. She was about to get the drinks when Kayla walked into the dining room. Seeing the yummy food, her face lit up.
Kayla: “oooh mum this looks divine” Kayla’s mum ” smiles, let me get the drinks.
Kayla is impatient so she begins to indulge while her mom gets the drinks.
Mum and daughter were enjoying their breakfast together after ages.
Kayla had told her mum she really missed having moments like this, she told her mother that she had lost the courage to speak to her about certain things because she was always busy and never had time to check on her.
Hearing all this made her mum feel absolutely terrible, like as if she abandoned her child and buried herself in work.
It was all work and no play at home.
Her mother had promised to change as of today.
Kayla had nodded in agreement and hugged her mum.
They were having a heart to heart moment when the door bell rang.
Kayla goes to check and finds her friends waiting at the doorstep.
she opens the door, they rush in and hug her .
Girls : ” we’re sorry Kay, last night was hectic night but we’re here to make up.
Kayla : laughs, Mum made pancakes, come on.
After having breakfast, they chill in the lounge, discussing about their night.
Hailey is surprised to see Kayla in a joyful mood. She knew Kayla had not seen the post as yet, she was becoming impatient and needed to leave right now.
She makes an excuse saying that her mother needs help with something and leaves.
The girls were still talking when Kayla’s mum had brought some movies for them to choose.
They go through all and screams in excitement when come across girls trip.
Naomi and Tash look at each other and grin because the movie title had made them think of last night.
Tash : Kay after watching this, you’d want to join us next time I assure you, wink wink.
They spend the rest of the day chilling with Kayla and her mother.
Still not interested in checking their phones.
Hailey on the other hand is rushing to go home and check what’s the latest.
