Cyber Bullying – Part 12
“Taking responsibility for your circumstances. Be strong enough to admit your wrongs, ask for forgiveness, and think of constructive solutions to solve your problem.”
Kayla’s mum had not forgotten about finding out who the Bully is. She called her daughter’s friends the next day to enquire about this so called James. They informed her that James had deleted his account the day Kayla had attempted suicide.
This made Kayla’s mum more furious because now it would be more difficult to find out who that person is. She asked them if they had any idea who would want to do something like that, if anyone had something against Kayla and only one girl came to mind. It was the most popular girl at school (karah) and her gang.
She wasn’t very fond of Kayla, she would always insult her, try to make a joke out of her, so maybe she had something to do with it.
Kayla’s mum paid Kara a visit but it was of no benefit. The father being a lawyer, used his knowledge and experience to his advantage. Basically he didn’t show any remorse whatsoever after finding out that his daughter had been bullying someone.
Instead of reprimanding her, he gave Kara more advantage to continue with her bad behavior. Sad to say but this is how parents have become today . Instead of guiding their child to the right path and teaching them right from wrong, they encourage them to reach out to the bad acts first.
If their child is popular no matter what the circumstances are, no matter what they could be involved in to gain popularity, it wouldn’t matter to them long as they are always getting some recognition and credit for being the parent of that famous child.
Kayla’s mum left in a rage. She couldn’t understand the mindset of that man.As she pulls in the drive way, she sees Hailey standing outside. This was the first time Hailey had stood outside, normally she would just barge in whenever she wanted.
Kayla’s mum : hailey why are you standing outside. Hailey : uhm hi aunt Dianna, I need to speak to you. Kayla’s mum : come inside, Kayla should be awake by now, she misses you Hailey.Hailey : no, uhhh, I dont think that’s a good idea… looks down feeling ashamedKayla’s mum : what’s wrong Hailey, did something happen at home? Hailey : no no, it’s not that. Aunt… I done something very terrible and I’m so sorry cries. I am James. I did this to Kayla. Kayla’s mum : shocked, she was trying to digest what she had just heard. Hailey why? Why would you do something like this? Do you realize how much of trauma you have caused for Kayla?
By now Kayla’s mum was furious and didn’t wanna hear another word coming out of Haileys mouth. Hailey apologized numerous times and realized that it won’t be so easy to earn their forgiveness. Not right now, not after confessing that she was to be blamed for Kayla’s Suicidal attempt. She left crying her eyeballs out.
Kayla’s mum stood outside for a few minutes, trying to gather whatever she heard and make sense of it but her mind was filled with mixed emotions… “why would hailey do that”, “what lead to this”, “what made her think of such a drastic thing”. How was she going to explain to he daughter that her best friend had betrayed her!
She took a deep breath in, exhaled before entering the house. She tried to be as calm as possible while her mind is still trying to figure out how to reveal the bitter truth to her child.
