Lilian Sanchez

The sound of my blaring alarm pulls me out of my deep slumber, and I force my eyes open as the blurry ceiling welcomes me. Again, I have woken up to deal with the miseries of my life and choose whether to stay alive or get thrown into depression and probably end up committing suicide. I know that I will eventually have to choose between the two. What do you expect from a young innocent lady that got nothing all her life, but bullies and rejection from the world?

My name is Lilian Sanchez, twenty-one years old chubby, short and ugly young lady. The only child of my sick father and my mom who was said to have divorced my father and abandoned me when I was just six months old. I have no idea about the reason she had to make that decision. What wouldve pushed her to abandon her six months old baby? That is the question that has been disturbing me for years now, but I never got an answer to it. What do I even expect? Maybe I was so fat that she couldn stand my presence and had to reject me too. Guess I was born for that.

Realizing that I have an interview at Bradfords empire in two hours, I hurry down the bed and scurry into my bathroom to have my bath before I finally get dressed. Staring at my plump reflection in the mirror, I try so hard not to cry. I don have good feelings about this. They may reject and bully me, just the way I have always been bullied all my life.

”Believe in yourself, Lilian, ” I assure myself although I know its not going to help me. I need this job so badly so I can pay for our house rent later. My strict stepmother will eventually kill me with frustration if I don get the job. Speaking of my stepmother, my father got married to the witch when I was just ten, and since then she hasn had a single child for my father, not even a miscarriage. All she does in the house is bully me and call me all sorts of names. I guess being extremely fat is a curse. Lose weight already, you pig, you
e too chubby and not smart enough in moving your body. Are you scared of falling to the ground? My stepmother would always mock me. For goodness sake, I don weigh up to three hundred pounds, and Im 52 for crying out loud, Im not that worse.

Taking a deep breath, I finally pick up my file from the bed and amble out of the room. Stepping into the living room a few minutes later, the annoying glare of my stepmother welcomes me.

”Good morning, maam Felicia, ” I greet her politely, but she only glares hard at me. Don blame me for calling her that, its what she prefers. In all the years she has spent with my dad, she has never for once allowed me to call her mom, and not that I want to anyway.

”You know the landlord would throw us out later if we don provide the money, so don fail us, ” She says to me like Im the one thats going to employ myself there. Why does my life have to be this awful?

”Ill take note of that, ” I reply to her before I finally stride out of the house and take a cab to the company.

Arriving at the company a few minutes later, I stare at the building in front of me as I hold my file tightly. They called me for the interview, but Im not sure if I should go in there, or if I should just turn back from here to save myself the bully Ill surely get from there.

”You can do this, Lilian. Just believe in yourself that you can, ” I assure myself one more time before I finally amble to the big iron gate and walk in since its opened. Stepping into the company minutes later, the stares that welcome me give me a bad feeling and make me regret showing up here in the first place. If I could
