Such an eye contact was unexpected. Wisdom saw Tochi’s real beauty from it, then he disconnected his eyes from hers. Even Tochi saw the reason why girls flock around him but she regarded herself as not worthy to compete with them just to have a handsome senior. “I’m only an SS2 illiterate” she thought.
“Desmond” Mr Anuma broke the silence. “I believe you won’t be able to participate on the quiz, right?”
“No oh!” Tochi exclaimed. “Sir, i should even be the first person on the list. I will make sure i beat the SS3 students even..” she glanced at Wisdom and continued with a low voice. “..even this one standing here”
“You mean Wisdom?”
“Yes, i can win him”
Mr Anuma began to laugh while Wisdom smiled quietly at her boldness and her funny way of talking.
“Desmond” Mr Anuma called. “Wisdom here is very intelligent that’s why he was made the senior prefect of this school. So there is no way you can beat him intellectually”
“Sir, just wait and see, i will study very haaaarrd and with the small small grammar I’m learning from you, i will win him”
Mr Anuma laughed again. He had never seen a student with such boldness and zeal to learn. Wisdom didn’t smile at the second time because the word ‘grammar’ Tochi used reminded him of the one she used on him that morning.
“Okay then, lets see what you can do” Mr Anuma concluded. “Wisdom you can put her through on how to go about with the list” he added.
“Okay, sir” Wisdom replied.
“You may go now”
Wisdom waited for Tochi to lead the way, then followed her. Their height was perfect like fitted couples. Tochi was quite tall but Wisdom was taller as they walked semutanuoisly towards where they came from. They were flowers on the road that led to the office and dwarf palme trees circulated everywhere which made people not to have a good view of them. Wisdom expected Tochi to walk faster than him but she didn’t rather she followed him right by his side-but was a bit far.
“Senior” Tochi broke the silence, then Wisdom looked at her without responding. “Why is your friend so mean to me? I mean that one.. I have forgotten her name”
“Jennifer?” Wisdom helped.
“Yes, Jennifer! Sorry, senior Jennifer” she lower her voice. “I don’t like her. Senior Esther is MORE GOOD..”
“Wrong English” Wisdom interrupted.
“What do you mean?”
“You don’t say Esther is MORE GOOD. There is no English word like MORE GOOD”
Tochi stopped and looked at him. “Then tell me the correct one” she said.
“You can only say Esther is BETTER”
“Hmm, Senior thank you for teaching me oh” she gave an attractive smile.
“You’re welcome” Wisdom replied. “Just don’t disobey Jennifer, with time she won’t be harsh on you” he added and they continued walking.
“Okay” Tochi glanced at him again. “Senior, don’t you like senior Esther?” she asked.
“Pardon?” Wisdom gared.
“You better be! You are crossing your boundary”
“I’m sorry” she began to walk faster leaving him behind. Wisdom saw her attractive buttocks again but neglected the feelings.
Tochi went back to Esther and Linda while Wisdom to his friends.
“How did it go?” Esther asked in anticipation.
“Mr Anuma gave us an assignment”
“Is that all?”
“Did senior Wisdom talk to you?” Linda questioned.
“That means both of you are now friends” Esther wanted to know.
“What do you mean?”
“We are not friends, he even shouted at me at last”
They kept quiet. Immediately the bell rang.
Break was over and all the students entered into their classrooms. None of them made noise enabling the singing of distance birds and sound of distance vehicles to be heard.
Few hours later, the bell was rung again for school over. Meanwhile, Tochi and Wisdom got the list of the quiz participants ready only wanting to get back to Mr Anuma.
Esther and Chester came out with their bags followed by Melody.
“Hi Esther!” she waved her hand.
“Hi” Esther responded to her. “Are you going now?” she asked.
As Chester stood with Esther, Wisdom arrived with a paper in his hand, then Esther smiled at him.
“Good day, Wisdom” she greeted.
“Good day my dear. Let me just submit this list to Mr Anuma, I’m coming back” he went out immediately, then Esther looked at Chester.
“Chester, can i talk to you?” she demanded.
“I hope no problem”
“Can you talk to Wisdom for me?”
“I know it seems awkward or weird, but I’m inlove with him”
Chester became dumb staring at her.
“Please, can you make Wisdom realise that i love him?” Esther asked emotionally. “I’m dying in silence, please!” she added.
Just before Chester responded, Calista showed up.
“Hi, Chester” she placed her hand on his shoulder. “Let’s go home” she added.
“No, I’m in the middle of something. Moreover, we aren’t following the same way”
“Just let’s go”
“I said no!” Chester exclaimed angrily before she disdained Esther and left thinking that it was because of her Chester shouted at her.
Chester looked at Esther again, he could see the love in her eyes…
