I Am The Girl in Their Dream

Yeah, another short which doom to be left hanging and died a lonely discontinuation. Or, I will try to take some time to complete this one haha. I suddenly got the idea while trying to fall asleep. I legit started to write it down in my phone, and below is the outcome lol. I didn't double checked on the grammar and vocabs, so don't kill me please~ T^T


"Empty table!" I literally screamed in my head. As a girl with glasses and two pony tails in braid aka the nerd girl, it's really an enormous salvation for me to find an empty table during the peak hour of lunch.

I rushed to the table, carefully holding my food tray and sit down with triumph. This table with 4 seaters is mine all over the lunch. I can guarantee there is absolutely no one who will sit here. After all, I'm the nerd girl with glasses anyway.

Looking down at my carbonara spaghetti, I twisted it carefully with the forks and brought it to my mouth. As I was chewing my lunch, my ears caught something bizarre as hell.

"Hi, Tara. This space is empty right? I'll sit here okay". A voice of a good looking guy. Well, I think he is a good looking guy based on his voice, and he wasn't even doubted that I might have companies. Darn the nerd girl reputation.

My eyebrows twitched as I'm seeing Jade Brown in front of me. Yup, a good looking guy for sure, a reaallyyy good looking one on top of that. My brain cells all running around imitating The Flash as trying to figure out why the most popular guy would sit on the same table with me? And oh gosh, don't even skip this one; he freaking know my name!

Wait! Readers! Stop! Stop your cursing at once!

This is certainly not the kind of cliche story where the hot popular boy falls in love with a mere nerd girl in glasses, because... wait! Jade is waving his hand, calling someone over, "Hey buddy! Here!"

I glimpsed at the person Jade's reaching out, and guess what, it's the infamous nerd guy!

Luke came to our table, and sit besides Jade indifferently. "Hello Tara," Luke greated me.

Whaaattt now? The story where the nerd guy unexpectedly become a damn hot and rich guy in disguise and falls in love with the glasses nerd girl??


The sound of a girl clearing her throat purposely doesn't shocked me anymore. Things can get even weirder, so guess I'll accept things the way it is. Looking up at the cheerleader captain, Queen Noir, I gave her a smile, and invited her, "You can sit here too if you want". Queen return the smile and sit on the empty slot. "Thanks Tara," she thanked me.

It was an awkward silence for a few moments. Well, it's really a weird combination on earth having the most popular guy, the most popular girl,  the most nerdy guy and the not really most nerdy girl sitting for lunch in the same table, and why the heck all of them know my name anyway? I mean, is the apocalypse currently stumbling around the corner?

Jade cleared his throat. "Tara, sorry to disturb your lunch..." he looked at me. Queen suddenly interrupted Jade, "Yeah, truly sorry about that, but we don't have much time." Staring straight into my eyes, Jade exclaimed, "You have to help us."

My mouth slightly opened in disbelief. "What do you mean? And I've meant to ask this, how do you know me in the first place? I don't think we ever exchanged words, or even eye contact before," I gave out my concerns and Luke's answer gave me the shocked of the world.

"You were in our dreams, Tara."

To be continued...

I know everything about him.

The way his face distorted when sneezing, how he sometimes stumble when walking, the noises he made when he eat anything delicious, the gentle patting whenever he encounter street cats.

And the fact,
That he hates me.

“Yo, Elise! Whatchu’ doin’ this weekend?” asked Luke from behind.

We’ve been friends for 15 years. 

“If you don’t have any plan, Imma crash at your place”.

His past is my past.

“There’s this movie Jacob recommended. He’ll lend the DvD tomorrow! Yahoo!” Luke seems rejoiced by it.


“Man, Elise. You’re gonna love it so freaking bad!” he then giggled at his remark.

I’m sick of this fake friendship.

“Hey, silence means yes right?” Luke put his hand on my left shoulder, tried to make me turn to him.

Why must pretend?

“Ah, shoot! I forgot my meeting with the baseball manager! Go home without me!” he exclaimed suddenly.

Is it so hard to look into my eyes and say you hate me?

I turned my back and stared blankly as Luke stormed back to the campus.

Let’s just end everything, Luke…

I Like Acting Tough, Am I?

My family acknowledged that I love to act, in my own way of course. Being dramatic of some sorts. Even some of my classmates in uni thought that too. It's not that I watch drama a lot (in fact, I really not fond of watching drama), but I love seeing their expression whenever I am being dramatic. Y'know, their reaction? It really makes me happy.

Well, let's put that aside for now.

Acting tough.

Have I been acting tough?

Yeah, I think I did. Plenty of time. Or, most of the time? I couldn't remember.

One of my principle or my habit, is to think positively and stay optimistic. This might be where the 'acting tough' come from.

I still don't know the cons of acting tough, but somewhere deep in my heart, I think there's a bit of gloomy side. Just a tiny little bit okay.

So, what's the reason for acting tough? To gain respect, to make others not worry about you, to keep others to stay tough too...

A lot of things happened.

Well, part of me comforted me by saying, "It's okay. It's okay. It's okay."

Dear heart, please just be okay.

I hate complaining y'know. And I hope I will never be insyaAllah. I like to accept things the way they are. But that is where one of my shortcoming comes from.

Err... What am I blabbing now? All the points seems out of places haha. Weird.
This is not a complaining 'kay. It's called, pouring-out-what's-inside-your-heart-from-time-to-time-so-it-wouldn't-cramped-inside-and-burst-later.

Okay, till next time insyaAllah =)
