Sweet Candy

It is just one of these days you hate and you wish you were dead although your mom says it's not real and it's all in your head.

But... how can she know that?

She never set a foot inside with me or kept me company, just dropped me, even kicked me out of the car because she said she couldn't walk that far.

How can she do this to her only child - lonely me - deliver it into the claws of to the enemy?

I tried it all cried, yelled, screamed and begged for hours on my knees.

She totally ignored me, asked advice from her niece.

"Better let Candy cool down somewhere else or you create a monster."

That is what the stupid cow of a niece said to my mom, I wonder how that woman can be so blind and extremely dumb.

It is very hard to believe she ever went to that monstrous school, those teachers are not cool!

"Candy behave", my mom said.

What the hell does she mean by saying that to me I'm the sweetest girl around, she should be happy and proud of me instead of spanking me on her knee!

"Mom please!"

I cried out loud and begged her again and again...

"It is me Candy your sweety I am so scared of that man!"

"Please, come inside with me and see..."

"Who do you mean?", she asked suddenly, "Is it a kid in your class that's bothering you or do you mean that handsome teacher..."

Her eyes sparkled as she blushed while my mouth fell wide open as I noticed her neck that showed me the bite.

"Who did taste you over there, when was it and where", I yelled at her.

She giggled like a stupid 13-years old chick as she declared that stupid teacher did it.

"I'm not always ignoring you my sweetheart I had a look at your school, well for the biggest part, and you know what he thinks I'm smart."

How come I am the only one with a mother who can not even protect her daughter?

Next day as I went back to school I didn't say goodbye to the fool that was no longer the person I once loved to death.

It didn't matter she didn't notice I left.

"What made him ask what is written on the blackboard if he knows I can not read and it's all abracadabra to me?"

"Hey sweety sit straight, I asked you to read out loud what this is about", he hissed at me.

He looked me in the eye and suddenly I knew why.


This was not about me, that teacher was a big joke, how come I didn't see he cannot write at all.

"Prepare for your fall!"

I ain't the sweetest candy - it's only what you all believe - I can seriously hurt with my scream of fear and that is how I'll pierce that blood-sucking heart.

Death is near.

When I read this kind of write up, I tend to dwell into the scenario, and had the dejavu feeling inside of me. As if it really happened to me in the past life. Then I started to pickup a beg of potato chips and start stuffing them into my mouth, the more I go on with the story, more chips goes into my mouth without realizing it.

And I just noticed I gain back some pounds πŸ˜‚

22.01.2020 03:18

@davidke20 I made you eat? πŸ€” I wonder how many pounds of chips you ate... You need to run more or focus on the story. πŸ’•Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

Nah πŸ˜‚ I'm the guy who always have many excuses. Km just being mouth itchy. Had that pot of potato chips being replaced with a bowl of cucumber, do you think I will still stuff them into my mouth? πŸ˜‚

22.01.2020 10:10

I think you are both. Cucumber with a mayo-garlic or curry sauce tastes fine. πŸ˜πŸ’•

22.01.2020 18:30

@wakeupkitty All I can say is WOW, I did not expect that ending.

21.01.2020 02:14

Thank you for reading. What did you expect? πŸ’•

21.01.2020 04:05

@wakeupkitty I thought the child did not like school and her Mother was making her go, then I took it as the teacher was not educated and the child could kill the teacher with a scream. Am I seeing it wrong?

22.01.2020 01:45

@myjob The child does not like school bevause of the teacher.
The mother doesn't care but about the teaher so the child takes care about that - all of it - with a scream...

@wakeupkitty you are a good storyteller

23.01.2020 00:54

Wow! You are indeed a writer. A good writer!!! How did you do that? You never ran out of creative juice. You are simply amazing my friend!

How come I cannot write?!? Huhuhu! 😭 I can only be in awe with good writers and wish that I could do the same. Hehehe! πŸ˜‚

21.01.2020 07:27

@gingbabida A certain rhythm is in my head if I write something like this.

There is a very old Dutch tale written.in rhyme.. it counts hundreds ofpages..I studied it.
To make it rhyme the - unknown - writer cut of sentences hald away. This is an unique way of poetry. If you are used to it it's easier to write but for readers it may be harder.

You can.write too.
Perhaps it is easier in your language. Practise with 4 or 6 lines.

I.wrote this very fast I do not know why but sometimes I need three days to finish it.

Thanks for your compliment. ❀️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

22.01.2020 08:34

I see. No wonder you are very good at writing. Back in my university years, we studied poetry with our local dialect. Right there and then I knew that I am not a poet. Hahaha! πŸ˜‚

22.01.2020 08:58

To me they said I was bad in language especially Dutch and if I cannot speak and write proper Dutch I will never learn another language.
Do not believe what they say. There is a time for everything and what you do not understand now you can understand easily tomorrow. We grow so does our language. πŸ’•

Vaya, que genio!! te felicito, que imaginaciΓ³n!. Es arte, muy lejos de mi capacidad creativa.

Wow, what a genius! I congratulate you, what an imagination! It is art, far from my creative capacity.

21.01.2020 19:50

@gertu Es algo que puedes practicar. Solo puedo escribir de esta manera si la rima ya estΓ‘ en mi cabeza. Gracias por tu cumplido. Abrazos. πŸ’•

It is something you can.practise. I can only write this way if the rhyme is in my head already. Thank you for your compliment. Hugs. πŸ’•Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

Your post brought up a lot of what schooling was like for me. I hated to read out loud because I didn't know phonics back then. So ph and f - ea making the different sounds it did in different words and so forth didn't make much sense to me.

I wish I was homeschooled and then I wouldn't have been kicked out of the car.

I don't recall my mother ever getting a teacher, she slept around quite a bit. I hope I would have gotten better grades if she did. lol

Was the rhyming intensional? It worked well for this peice, I thought.

22.01.2020 02:08

@tristancarax I can only remember the teacher saying I was too stupid to learn. He loved to hit us. My mother never went to school she worked or slept. Everything they labelled me with turned out to be sooo wrong and proves the teacher(s) have no idea what they talk about.

The rhyming was in my head. I guess triggered by the first sentence (poem Vincent)..

Ohhh I'm so sorry you, too, had bad experiences at school!
Worse than most if the teacher hit you.
I was merely spanked and yelled at. Accused of inattentiveness, more so than stupidity.
Revenge is sweet, at least in the guise of fiction.
Triggered - that has multiple meanings here! Even though I'm more than half a century old, I find I can be "triggered" is a woman my own age, a peer, not a parent or teacher, starts yelling and accusing me of incompetence or bad intentions. I'm back in first grade again and Mrs. Hoffman is spanking me in front of the class. Not that this is a conscious thing; it's taken me decades to notice, recognize, realize, and now, of course, a lot of people make fun of "Trigger" as a thing that can set people off... but let us not go there now.

@carolkean Thank you for stopping by. I still liked school better as being at home. Kindergarten was fine I guess although I was sick. The teacher took care of me and two other girls, meds, creams, etc. It was normal for her. In the afternoon we laid on mattresses, the ones used for gym, she told a story and we slept for some time. I liked that.

High school was better too. Teachers were different just the children not but already at that time, I didn't like to belong to the cattle. Only the last school was bad. Some teachers were screwed up, hated those who did not come from the South. Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

I love the opening lines of this story - the rhymes throughout, like a song -and the sense of child who sees one thing but is told by a parent that no, you're mistaken, your mom says it's not real and it's all in your head. Classic trick of an abusive parent.

And I love this! the stupid cow of a niece

No wonder Mom is unable to defend her daughter - Mom is herself a victim - but it sounds like she was a bad mother even before that.

Awesome ending! Did the good little girl give up and go to the dark side herself?

24.01.2020 21:58

@carolkean Thank you for your great comment. This one is precious to me.

How the girl went... I guess she takes care of herself and she sees what's going on for real.

You're welcome!
School... I'm just glad those days are behind me.
I've been googling it in vain: what does !trdo mean?

26.01.2020 23:24

@carolkean you can give 10 such votes per day and the curation split is, i think, 40%

@Kitty Wu , but in general, the !trendotoken call you need to buy and stake TRDO tokens

in contrast, !trendovoter is for delegators to trendovoter account

Okay... !trendovoter = is activated if I delegate to @trendovoter

And the !trdo is like this or !TRDO or !trendotoken?

unstaking is, i think, 2 weeks in 2 payments

yes, need to stake to calculate the vote strength

and @Kitty Wu , if ur gonna distribute trendo votes manually, the day is defined as a UTC day

just make sure and verify the account is "trendovoter"

maybe faster, as less overheads is steemyy.com
