Chapter 01: My First Step

My life, I never thought I would have a life like this neither I wanted it to be. Like normal people, having a loving family and living happily, Whenever getting bored, hanging out with friends they have in number, sitting in the living room with their family and sharing the feelings and experiences they had in the day,like people get an attraction towards someone, a feeling that develops for someone and when perfectly know them, taking them as their life partners and spending rest of life with them ,loving them. Actually I wanted a life like this but kismet has some other things decided for me. Well, let me introduce you with me first, I'm Carolyn, huh, sorry no surname, that's strange I know but that's like my parents left me in the corner of a street the day I was born. It is possible that they might have some fiscal problem or they didn't wanted to have me or raise me up well I don't have any idea why they did this but my life didn't ended and I was rescued and I thought I was lucky but no I was not, now I wish I would have died. A kind woman took pity on me and took me with her to her little house, it simply had two bedrooms, one little kitchen and a launch. She was alone, no child and no relative even so that much of a shelter was enough for us to live. She only had me and it seemed she was very pleased to have me and thought I was enough to reduce her feeling of lonliness. She raised me like my mother. When I learned to walk and speak, I first called her 'Ma'. From then onwards, She was my mother and me, I was her unknown daughter. She gave me my name "Carolyn" that means "joy" and "Song of Happiness". She thought my life would be joyful and full of happiness. That was just a thought. She used to sell shoes and her shoe creation was unmatchable. She was best known in the town for her elegant and unique shoemaking. The money she used to earn by selling shoes, she used to spend most of then on me like my school expenses, shopping, partying with friends and all useless things I'd demand. I was delighted to have her motherly love and I thought I'm the luckiest girl ever. When I reached the middle of my teens, I was indeed a beautiful girl with a perfect figure and fair complexion. My eyes were grey giving out an attractive shade and my hair were always flowing down my waste and those layer of brown hair always use to invite other toward them. So let's finish with my appearance. It was now my time for the university. And my mother, Linda Ray, was worried to hell.

I was packing my bags for going when I saw the expression on her face, that was scary, actually not scary but that was worried one. "Mom, how many times will I have to tell you that I'm not a Kid anymore, I know about the world, I understand what and how people are, around me so please let your extra concern fly off" She was still anxious and she was trying her best to hide it but she couldn't do it well. "Carrie! I'm not taking you as a little kid nor do I think that you are a fool but it's just like you're my daughter and it is my responsibility to care for you" she took a long breadth before saying the rest of the sentence "What if you have feelings for someone, I wouldn't be there with you so how would I examine that guy and tell you if he's good for you or not" I was just like 'what the hell', I never thought that thing, that was far away from my imaginations. "Mom you're going too far, I would never ever have feelings for someone, please get it soon in your mind". She was a bit relaxed by my confident voice but what was the proof if I'm saying the truth. "Carrie! What if someone started harrasing you there. I'll not be there with you. What will you do?" I was antagonized and also I was just starting to think myself a fool. Am I that incapable? "Mom! I'll call the cops. Is that okay?" She got a simple answer. Now, was she thinking of another excuse to scare me and stop me from going to stay in the hostel? But I wanted to go and study because I didn't wanted my future to be a shoemaker, she again started "Carrolyn! What if you get a feve.." I interrupted "Stop, Mom". First time, it was like I was not simply saying but I was shouting at her. I think my voice hit her like a big punch on her face and her expression was making me guilty. Mean, Carolyn she was just concerned about you and you just scolded her? How rude you her? In the meantime, she walked outside my room with fast and hard steps. I must go and apologise to her. After scolding myself alot, I walked out of my room and gone towards her's. Her door was unlocked and from the outside I could see her sitting on her bed with her hands covering her face, she was obviously weeping. I shouldn't have spoken that way with her. I entered her room, she surely heard my footsteps as she slowly started to wipe her tears with her palm. I slowly walked toward her bed and sat beside her. "Mom! I'm sorry" She looked at me with a pretty smile on her face and she too, was surely very pretty. "No need to apologise, dear. I know I've always been annoying to everyone" I was embarrased. Actually you're always been caring for everyone "No mom don't say like that. I know you only care for everyone but mom too much of something is also not good. Your concern and care are obvious but you should just care for someone until he cares for himself" she started caressing my face" Dear! I'm sorry but I simply don't want to be alone again. The time I spent before you came in my life, was horrible. I was always alone, no one to talk with, no one to share my feelings with, just alone, Ray, he also left me because of my behaviour, he committed suicide you know?" I couldn't simply reply her because this sentence pierced my heart. I was probably about to say that I'm not going but she said before I said " But I want to make you my educated daughter who would make her mother proud one day, so I shall have to let you go" I was being very emotional. Tears started coming down my face when I tightly hugged her. The warmth in that hug just wasn't allowing me to leave her. I wasn't able to believe that she isn't my real mother. It seemed that I lived in her womb for 9 months. She not only gave me the shelter, food, clothes or things from which I would able to live but she also gave me the care, the concern and the love with which I would feel my life and feel some support with me. She was truly an 'angel' for me.

I started placing my luggage inside my car. At that time Mom was watching me from inside the main door. She was pretending to be happy which she wasn't in actual. I also didn't wanted to start that conversation again so I simply gave her a smile. It was the time for me to leave now. That moment was a way sensitive for me but I couldn't resist sitting on the driving seat, silently. I then made my face smile a bit yet my face was showing nervousness and I was trying to conceal it. I put my both hands on each side of the steering wheel and I was breathing heavily. It was difficult for me to even face her but I did so I waved my hand at her and she also did the same as the answer. So that was when I last saw my mother. I started driving with a heavy heart and I knew what would have been her feeling when I disappeared from her sight, that feeling would be stronger than mine. Let's forget it i'll overcome it.

After the drive of an hour and a half, I saw a signboard with a broad writing on it, it read 'Cape Breton University' and I was amazed to see this, and that was pointing towards the right turn. I turned right hopefully as I was walking towards my successful future yet I was nervous too. I was thinking like' what am I gonna do? How many friends will I have? How will be the girls in here? And the most dominant, how would be the hostel mess? As I was thinking these things, I found the entry gate of the university infront of me. It was not big but the whole of the university was more like twenty of millioniers' palaces in one. That was a good view. I was being excited. I started looking around to find a parking lot. And I found so it was just beside the entry gate. I started driving in that direction. I was the most exciting moment of my life, I drove into the parking lot and parked my car with a Grey Mercedes and was a bit embarrased to see my liitle Nissan Micra standing between such expensive cars. But I shall get them too, soon, with this confident thought, I started taking steps outside the parking lot and my eyes were on the the very unique building of the university. This is my dream walk, I was thinking this at that time. I was taking fast steps with many things running inside my little confused mind and my mother's last seen face expression was also one of those. I hope I didn't hurt her, did I? I never shall be able to get any success in real if my mother is unhappy, but she did wanted to send me here to make her proud. It means I didn't hurt her at all. What I saw, I was just standing in front of the gate and I came back to the real world from the Zone of wonderings. My lips curved in a faint smile and unintentionally gave it a slight push and it opened. I could see a very big garden on the inner side of the gate. It had many types and coloured of flowers in it like there were roses, orchids, sunflowers and jasmine flowers even and there was a very tasteful scent all over. I could feel that scent and freshness passing through my body and that was giving m a lot of pleasure. I was simply delighted and I walked inside the gate and then, I saw the little main door of the university which was very simple and of wood colour. It was giving a good contrast with the colour of that building. I slowly walked towards that door and my eyes had a hopeful sparkle in them. As I reached nearer to it, I was feeling as I'm moving nearer to my luck. I finally reached one step far from it. I stood their still and my hand reached to knock at it, slightly. My heartbeat accelerated as it was my first time to stay somewhere without my mom. The reply was instant as the door was opened at my first knock and the person who opened it was a young and handsome man with blue eyes. It seemed that he was just waiting for the door to be knocked. He was wearing dark blue pants and his shirt was also of the same colour. He was smart and slim and the shirt was tight so it was showing his perfect figure. I was just being nervous and confused, confused at what? I didn't know. He was also staring at me with interrogative gaze, "Yes?" He asked, gently. I was awakened by this voice. You jerk! Stop acting weird. "Hello! I'm a newcomer" I think he also felt that I'm a bit jumpy so to reduce my brittleness, he made his voice friendly,"what's your nice name pretty newcomer?" I blushed. It wasn't intentional but I actually blushed. "Oh yes, I'm Carolyn from Sydney." The man, after hearing my answer, said " wait for a moment here" I shook my head obediently and he went into the door again. My nosiness was increasing as the time was running ahead. I held each side strip of my bad with each hand tightly, and I was gazing around the garden I just walked through. I heard the sound of the door opening again and I turned my face towards it at the moment. Again, I saw that man as he stood in front of me with a sweet smile on his face: "So, are you the Carolyn from the Ray(s)?" The question didn't surprised me,a bit. Obviously, my mother was Mrs. Ray so I must be from the Ray(s). "Yes, I am" my answer was quite confident. The man moved a bit giving me a space to walk and pointing toward the door, he said "You can go inside". I was pleased to hear it and my face started turning red, not because I was angry, neither was I shy, what was that, then? I quietly walked inside the university door and now I was standing in a big hall made of black smooth tiles. It has about 20 LED lights and it was as big as the garden outside. There was an information glass block with a round hole on it and on the front of that were sofas for waiting people to sit. There were no other people today except the lady who was sitting inside the information block. She had blonde hair and a perfect figure. She was wearing a full white qipao and was looking very pretty. She saw me and stood from her seat. Maybe, She was pointing me to go towards her side. I started walking toward the block, nearer to her. I reached there and stood in front of the hole to talk to her. She smirked prettily and asked "So, are you Carolyn from the Ray(s)? It looked as though the man on the door had came to her to ask. I answered "yes" She started typing something on the computer and asked me with a well mannered tone "So, Is your room number well checked on your form? Is it 129?" I was unsure about it So I removed my bag from my shoulders and reached my hands for my registration form. I checked it and it was clearly written room no.29. I shook my head, looking towards the lady. I think she was expecting the same reply from me because she was holding some keys in her hands and when I shook my head, she moved her hand towards me "The keys of your room, Your room is on the third floor, the third room of the second row. I smiled at her, holding the keys "Thank you".
