When the weekends came, my friends and I had various activities so it was rare that I would spend much time at the flat.
As I was out most of the time, or doing something when I was at the flat, unless I physically stood on the veranda, Jade had little opportunity to get to me.
However, one of the ‘lessons’ I’d learned was that if I went too long without giving Jade twenty minutes to babble every other day, she’d try to pick a fight.
This could be from me using bug spray in my room, to not locking a gate. I assumed she did this to hear her own voice. For I never ‘defended’ or ‘argued’. I let her bounce the words off me, said nothing.
I don’t think she realised I was smarter than her, that I saw through her, and couldn’t care less about her.
As I never mentioned the lies, the proofs of her lies, she probably assumed I hadn’t noticed or forgot.
