It has been three months since I have been friend with Veronica. We three including me, Veronica and Jung and sometimes, Reyansh has been enjoying the bond of friendship, hanging out with each other, studying together and all other things that other normal people do in their friends group. Reyansh even made a friends group in messenger application for four of us and I would occasionally help them out if they had any doubts in maths or any other subject. But, there was something that always bugged me. It was Veronica. Whenever she smiled, I would feel something off.

As if she really wasn't that happy how she shows us to be. I don't really feel anything or sense anything whenever she laughs. You know that feeling when you smile, seeing other people smile? But in this case, I don't really feel anything whenever she smiles. There was something in her eyes. All these months, I have been completely focussing upon her and it makes question myself if I was getting attracted to her. But then, I was only a fifteen year old kid, what really do i know about life or love?

Her eyes were always empty. She was hiding something behind that smile and that made me stay away from her. I had never really liked secrets nor do I have any intentions on knowing what she is hiding, but still I don't know why, I feel weird. Just plain weird, to see that there was indeed something that was disturbing her and restrained her from being happy.

But whatever it was, I really liked what was going on. Honestly, I had never really had many friends and I didn't really like to socialise but now it was good to have some friends with whom I could hang out.

"What are you reading?" I asked looking down at Veronica who seemed to be reading a book but her eyes were not really trained on the book. She seemed to be lost in deep thoughts but feigned as if she was reading the book. "Nothing, " she whispered as closed the book and placed some notebooks over it, as if trying to hide it from me. But, I removed the notebooks and grabbed the book while she gasped and tried to take it from me.

"Business Economics?" bewildered by her choice of book, for being a science student who had physics exam in less than ten days. "Don't you think that you should read physics books instead of this?" I asked as I took a seat before her and kept the book down.

"Oh yeah! I wasn't really reading

st her that she beat her mercilessly and even showed the authorities the scratches and bruises she had gotten because of Veronica, "

"Then?" I asked wanting to know more about it.

"But due to lack of evidence that Veronica really did abuse her, the authorities let Veronica slip and changed her roommates building, avoiding anymore nuisance from both of them. Not only this, but the girl in my class told me that Veronica had no girl friends and the girls in the hostel were scared of her and even avoided meeting her gaze, " he said and I sighed as I kept my burger down and got off from my place.

"Where are you going?" Jung asked and I showed him my lunch box. "To throw it in the dustbin, " I told him and it was when he handed me his empty sandwich box wanting me to throw it in the dustbin for him. I excused myself and walked back into the school building and threw the boxes into the dustbin and made my way towards the water purifier machine to have some water.

But there was something that caught my attention and I stopped in the middle of the hallway and changed my trance as I walked towards the direction of the dean's chamber and there she was. Veronica, came out of the room quietly and closed the door behind her and ran towards the other direction, missing my presence.

"What is she doing here?" I said out to myself as I walked to the dean's chamber and opened the door thinking she came there to meet the dean but was surprised to find no one inside.

That made me look back at the direction where Veronica had just left. This girl is seriously weird.
