The more her fingers danced on the keyboard and clicked away, the more she realised how quiet her room was. All she could hear were her fingers, no birds outside, no wind blowing. It was silent. But then again, it was 1 am and she was trying hard to get her assignments done. There should be no reason for any living creature to be up that late. But she had got caught in this loop of work and school so bad that there was no way out for a while now. There were times when she would think about her personal life and realise that she didn’t have one, or that it had been too long since she had seen any of her friends. They would text, and occasionally talk via Facebook, but that was all. Her life felt so loud while she was in class or working away, that she never realised how quiet it really was when she was alone.
Sometimes she wished she could just shove the books aside, turn the alarm off, and just take a break. But it wasn’t time for that yet. A few more months until she would be back home in her own house resting her head in her grandma’s lap. That’s when this would all pay off. She would picture that moment in her head and a smile would slowly make its way across her face. She would do anything to make that dream come true, she could wait it out!
What’s the hardest thing you’ve had to wait out for?
