In the world afore, during 1880, a 10 year old girl named X got separated from her mother and worked as a slave in a palace. Her boss family is the richest family in that country and they owned schools, hospitals and so on. They have many slaves working for them. Her boss had a son named Y, who is 2 years older than X. Y was studying in boarding school and doesn’t come home often during holidays. Y is someone who doesn’t fall in love easily and hard to understand his character. He doesn’t like his dad but at the same time he respects him and follows his command. Y always gets into trouble and gets kicked out of school because he likes to be dominated in the school. Since Y got kicked out from his previous school, his dad made him go to their own school but still, Y lived in his friend’s house. Since Y is studying in his dad school, he likes to be much dominated and still gets into fight.

when X came to the palace for the first time her boss told her, “X! you can stay in this palace and get to sleep here” there wasn’t no happiness in her face because she was full of depressed and missed her mother. She got her own tiny room where she has to share with other slave members and she doesn’t get along with other slave members. One day on her way to the garden she found a small room full of used textbooks and newspapers and said to herself, “what are these use for? from that day onward she went to that room secretly every day to explore about these books and from there she got a knowledge about the world.

Every day she sits alone near the window and watches everyone playing outside or going out with their parents. “why couldn’t I be free and be like everyone with my parents?” says X. At one point she got really depressed and had a dream about her mother every night and woke up crying. At the age of 16, she tried to commit suicide. Knowing this her owner decided to send her to his own school as a half time student. So, she can get relief from her depression and concentrate on her work. So, he asked, “do you want to go to school as a half time student?” she was surprised after hearing this from her owner. She replied, “yes, I would love to but …” “But what?” Said the owner. “Is it possible for me to attend school?” said the girl. By reading the used history textbook, she knew that African American are not allowed to get educations. Her boss replied, “don’t worry it’s my school so, you would be able to attend school.”  The night before school, she couldn’t sleep and she had butterflies feelings on her stomach. All she was thinking about was, if she will get friends and if everyone will be nice to her.

But on the first day of school, she got bullied and it made her depressed even more and she didn’t have anyone to share her feelings with after going home. She got bullied every single day. On the second week of the school, the same thing happened again. She plead everyone to leave her alone. A dominate voice came from behind the crowd, “everyone leave her alone” said Y. That was the first time X met Y but, Y knew her from first day of school. Y had been noticing her and there was something that had been attracting him from her. Y helped her out from bullying and made her feel like she is also like one of them. She doesn’t know that Y is her owner’s son and he doesn’t know X works in his house. They both met every day in school and even outside the classroom. At one point they realized that they were in love and Y planned to propose X. So, he asked for her address and that’s how he came to know that X lives in his house as a slave. After knowing this he started to like her even more because she’s a girl with a lot of pain within her and never shows it out.

His parents came to know about this and warned him to forget her but he didn’t listen to them. Finally, his parents threaten him and said,” if you don’t forget her, then I would kill her” so, he didn’t know what to do so he started to avoid her. They both met each other after a week. X asked him “why aren’t you talking to me? Are you avoiding me?”  so he said, “you ain’t got no talent if you didn’t have a face you wouldn’t be nobody.” And she said, “god created heaven and earth and all that’s Black within them.” So he said, “you ain’t really no hot shit they tell me plenty sisters take care better business than you” this made her heart broken and felt alone again. When they went apart, tears rolled from Y’s eyes and said to himself, “I hope one day you will get to know that I did all these things to save your life from my parents.” Y went back to his house and told his parents, “I have done what you had told me to do. But, I want you to do me a favor.” His parents asked, “What is it” so, Y replied, “I want you to leave X alone and let her stay with her mother.” His parents said yes to it so, he won’t meet X again. His parents also planned secretly, to send X and her mother somewhere far away to a different place by their choice so, Y won’t find them.

As days went by, Y felt so bad for hurting X and wanted to tell her the truth. So, he decided to tell her the truth on the day when she meets her mother. Finally, the day had come where X will meet her mother after a long time. On that day morning, Y went to meet X with his parent’s permission and X wasn’t happy to see him back. Y went and spoke to her, “hi! X how you doing? I know that you really hate me but I wanted to tell you something” so X told  him, “ I don’t want to hear anything from you and I had heard a lot from you that’s enough” and Y replied “ I know that I have hurt you but, it wasn’t my fault. I did all those things to save your life from my parents” and he told her the truth behind their breakup and they both decided to move on. Y also told her that, “today I have a surprise for” and he made her meet her mother. After seeing her mother X ran and hugged her mother and was happy to see her back. But, it was the last day X and Y met each other. X and her mother went to a different place and days passed by, but Y couldn’t forget all his memories with X so he decided to join on the army and he never came back.



while writing this fanfiction i learned the concept of the poem and how poem can have their own stories. i can use this in the future to analysis a story and its main idea.  yes, it did helped me to analysis it by giving the poem its own story and a life to its characters.  i could have pushed my writing even further by making it more creative. In my fan fic i have used rhetorical choices that is similar to allusions. this choice have advanced the depth of my work by  using  past history and my imaginary  in my story and it has played an main role in it. the process of peer review had helped me to analysis it further by adding more details to the characters. next time  for my peer review i would like to focus on the creativity. for my future assignments i would like to use rhetorical choice such as irony, allusion.
