Tantalizing Tuesday's Tete-tete's #No.3- Alicia

Tantalizing Tuesday's Tete-tete's #No.3- Alicia

Prompts :  bitter,encouragement, invigorate

“Mom? Are you sure this place is a school of higher learning? Didn't you see the sign? They spelled beginning incorrectly,”Alicia said bitterly.
“They probably ran out of letters. It will be a great beginning for you,”the mother encouraged.

The mother and child entered the school and walked towards the office to register.

“Fill out these forms.” the school secretary said
“Mom, third grade? Why did we have to move here anyway?” the child whispered.
“Alicia you know very well why we moved here now it’s time to pay the piper.” the mother whispered.
“Why can’t I go back to my old school?”
“The government was scared by the super computer you created. The school will never suspect that you aren’t nine years old. I have fake ID and a birth certificate.”
“Testing for all grade three students is today take the tests, but we’ll discount the results consider it’s your first day,” the secretary stated.
“Just do badly,” the mother commanded.
“I’ll try but it's hard when it's so easy.”
“Why did I create you anyway?”
“You wanted the first cyber child with the mind of a computer but the ability to love and an invigorating meaning to your life.”
“So I did. Have a good day sweetheart “she said hugging the child and watching her go.

They'd only have to pretend for a little while. Alicia would be able to graduate to the new body her mother was building then they could move on. Alicia would save the world as she was built to do.
