Finding Kim

Everyone knows me as Kim, it's just that everyone has a different perception of who Kim is...

Kim is working towards her master in microbiology. She is intelligent, attractive and looks forward to her very prospective future. But then someone walks back into her life, just as she is getting over her tortured high school past.

She dreamt of seeking revenge but she soon comes to realise that this girl - the girl who made her teenage years a living hell - has, perhaps, already paid the price...

2. Ally

 

Immersed in finishing my essay and slurping the chocolate-y goodness of the Starbuck's frappuccino, I don't notice her coming into the coffee shop. The constant, irritating wailing of a young child makes me snap out of my trance-like state. My fingers stop caressing the laptop keyboard and I slam my drink against the table. Then I see her in the queue. I almost don't recognise her. Almost. She has put on a few inches around the waist, well enough to go up about three dress sizes. Her hair is scraped back into a rather dishevelled bun and her tired, aged face is sparse of make-up. But there is absolutely not a doubt that this is Ally. She orders something and as the barista prepares her drinks, she tries to soothe the screaming toddler who is now lying on the floor. A slightly older girl tries to pick up the toddler, but she is whacked in the face.

Mum Tommy just punched me! You saw that, right?”

“Sandy, I am not in the mood!”

Ally pays for the drinks and then carries them over to a table near me. I quickly avert my eyes back to my laptop screen, but Ally has already seen me.

Mum! You've spilled the drinks!”

I look up from the screen and into the eyes of my former high school best friend. Her hands are covered in whipped cream and iced coffee. A frappuccino is now rolling around on its side, pouring its icy contents onto a large, calorific muffin. A large mug lies in shatters, drowning in the steaming hot coffee.

“Kim.”
