Sophia Jones was a normal high school student.
"...and then I told him that I think the same about him..."
She had a lot of friends.
"...I know, though I will have to wait a little more..."
She had good grades as well. Her parents were proud of her and bought her a lot of things.
"...It will be so fun!"
Her biggest defect?
"I can't wait to dump him after he buys me that expensive necklace!"
She manipulated everyone close to her in order to get what she wanted.
The felling of greed was the only emotion that was guiding her. It slowly started when she was a little kid, and like all normal kids, she wanted a lot of toys. Because of her parents always granting all her wishes, and because of her personality, she grew up becoming greedier and greedier until all her other emotions disappeared, being engulfed by the desire to have everything for herself.
"Anyway, I have to hang up the phone now. See you Alice!"
"If everything goes well, she should be my slave in no time." said Sophia to herself after hanging up the phone.
Sophia heard a gentle knock on her room's door.
"It's me Sophia, I brought your dinner."
Sophia jumped out of the bed and sat down at her desk. She opened a notebook and assumed a studying position.
"You can enter mom!"
Her mom entered the room with a food tray full of Sophia's favorite dishes.
"Look at my daughter studying so hard!"
"Well, the exams are coming and I want to get good grades so I can make you and dad happy!" said Sophia smiling
"I'll let you study in peace now!"
When her mother left the room, Sophia closed the notebook she was pretending to write on and opened her phone.
"After I talk to that stupid teacher and convince him to give me the grades I want, that piano will be all mine. How can all the other people be so stupid? Well, I guess it's my destiny to acquire all the things that I want. "
Sophia heard another knock at the door. She quickly hid her phone and opened the notebook.
"Did you forget anything mom? You can enter."
There was no response.
"Did you hear me? You can enter mom!"
Again there was no response. Then Sophia heard another knock, this time it was louder.
"Who is there? I am trying to study!"
There was another knock, this time it was even louder. Sophia slowly approached the door. With every step she took, the knocks were getting louder and louder. What started as an annoying knock at the door, now terrified her. She slowly opened the door, but before she could see anything, the girl heard a weak voice calling her name.
Sophia fully opened the door and screamed!
"Why are you screaming, what happened Sophia?"
The girl realized that the one who nocked at the door was just her grandpa that had hearing problems. He also used to call her by her full name.
"Oh grandpa, it's just you!"
"I just received my pension. I wanted to give you a little gift."
"Thanks grandpa! I love you!"
After her grandpa left, Sophia sighed with relief.
"What was that old man doing, scaring me like that! I guess I am tired I should go to bed now."
Sophia closed the door and lied down in her bed. While falling asleep she looked all around her room seeing all the things that she received by manipulating others. A bike that she never used, an expensive laptop, a signed poster of her favorite singer, and many others. Her room was so full of things that it looked more like a storage room then a bedroom. But just before falling asleep she heard something.
"Would you like to play a game, Sophia Jones?"
