A piece by Pourna; a narration of incidents during a week of school exhibitions.
I felt quite lucky to find my own class to be my project room. I just sat there glancing at all the projects set before me. Some were interesting and some were as dull and mundane as mine! There was a chart being prepared right before me; it was about Adobe Photoshop. The pictures which the girls were sticking to their chart caught my attention. One looked like a vampire, and my thoughts drifted. I yearned for a topic like fantasy to be allowed in the school exhibition. I didn’t give much heed to that thought, for it was extremely improbable.
Moments later, I looked at the chart again and found a face similar to that of Harry Styles from One Direction. I knew I couldn’t be wrong, with me being such a great fan of their music. I set my foot forward and went closer.
To my astonishment, it was indeed Hazza! For a second I was spellbound, the word ‘Hazza’ playing in a loop in my mind. Then I broke free and asked the girl making the chart, “Do you know who this is?”. I got the reply I expected, “No”. I pressed on and continued, “It’s Harry Styles from the band, One Direction.” The girl gave me a nasty look, which could’ve probably meant, “What can I do ab0ut that?”
With a wide grin on my face, I went back to my place. Only as I sat did I realise that the chart asserted that Harry’s face was photoshopped! I felt terrible; I’ve seen that photo before, but now it was awful and harrowing! The people here saw Harry’s face as being photoshopped, when it is absolutely not. I fretted and fumed for a while, and then left that as it is. The true fans know the allure of Harry’s face; his smile that is so heart-warming, and just listening to his voice is a gift itself! With that in mind, I turned a blind eye to that chart.
