CHAPTER 4 We both arrived at the doorstep of the class simultaneously. Me and the mr.blue eye. well I think I should call him by his name but I didn’t got to know that. We shared a smile and then sat on different seats this time. I was feeling awkward because of proffesor Johnson’s behviour of yesterday but tried to behave normally. The class was to be started with the discussion on Wuthering heights And I was really excited to listen if proffessor was going to behave as he was supposed to do because I have loved that book for some reason. The proffesor placed a question based on yesterdays discussion in which I was quite lost but because I had read the novel earlier so I thought I was to answer.
The question was this-” Everyone plays an important in their own life, Tell about any one side character of the novel about whom you would like to read deeply and why so?” After listening the question I knew I couldn’t answer any question better than this one, so I raised my hand. He asked me to share my views and So I did, ” I would like to read about Hareton as his character is the one I pity for,the most. He lost his mother when he was born, Nelly left him when he was to be teached and he was left with his devil daddy”. A familiar voice interrupted and said- “Why did you mentioned Mr.
Hindley as a negative character?” The interruption was done by Mr. blue eye But at this time I was clear of my opinionI replied confidently- “Because he is mentioned as that of a devil character in the novel” He snapped back-” But we are asking for your views not of the Authors” ” And my views are the same as I said earlier.””Can we know the reason behind this opinion?””He should have treated Hareton like he was to be treated but he never did, I never understood why people do this ? why are they unable to understand thatthey need to care for their child”- I shouted, tears rolling down my cheeks.The whole class fell into deadly silence and everyone was looking at us And he was staring at me blankly.
Proffesor declared that today’s discussion is over ! I left the class hurriedly but I felt someone walking behind me.Mr.blue eye called out my name but I ignored and started walking as fast as I could.He called out again and this time I stopped because I didn’t wanted to create a scenario. He came towards me and asked-“I am sorry that I made you cry”Its okay, now leave me alone- I requested him. “You’ve spent your whole life,wasn’t that enough to be alone ?” – He said and I was dumbstruck at his choiceof words.
I was just about to leave then he said, “well, my name is Zayn”. I replied back with “But I never asked your name”.He laughed and said that-“yes, you never said but you wanted to”. I walked away and felt as if he could read my mind. It was the first time someone saidthe things I felt !
