The word ‘Genius’ used to be our favorite for some time… now it kills me every time I hear it. Not for it’s meaning, but for it’s memories.

I hid from the word ‘Genius’ for all the time I could… I should have realised that I couldn’t hide forever. It hurt. These were the tears no one saw. Innocently she used the word and innocently she killed me. I should have known.
I stared at the screen humiliated, hurt and puzzled. I thought of a reply but I didn’t know how exactly to say it. I threw my head back and pulled my chemistry book closer to me. That was the only thing I had for comfort. I wrapped the blanket tighter around my feet as the chills came down the back of my neck. I typed back to her my defensive argument. I touched the ‘send’ button and the tears came down simultaneously.
