THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
The more she walked the more beautiful she appeared. She wore the correct ironed uniform-white lone sleeve shirt and green skirt. And on her head was a green barrette which some part of her hair came out and dangled around her cheek. Her black shoe fitted perfectly with the white stockings. She hung her one-handed bag across one of her shoulder with a white handkerchief in her hand. Immediately she saw Wisdom she began to smile. Wisdom could see part of her yellowish thighs from the short skirt she wore looking very attractive and sexually arose.
“Wow!” he exclaimed still with his hands in his pockets.
“Good morning” Tochi greeted and smiled in his presence but suddenly bent down her head.
“You look absolutely exquisite” Wisdom used the exact grammar Mr Anuma used on him.
“Chei! Are you abusing me? The grammar is too much oh”
“My dear you look beautiful”
“Thank you. You too”
“And you are too early today. Why?”
“I promised you never to come to school late again”
“That’s good” they became quiet smiling at each other, then Tochi gently passed him in a way her arm touched his. She walked into her class without looking back, then Wisdom smiled. Few minutes later he went to her classroom and saw her rehearsing what they learnt on Saturday.
“Come lets take a work” Wisdom suggested.
“But I’m busy”
“Just stand up” he held her by the hand and took her up.
They walked neatly around the school compound like couples.
“I want to ask you something” Tochi began. “Do you know how it feels to be inlove?”
“Yes, why asking?”
“Because someone is having the feelings and dying to hear you say you love her”
Wisdom became surprise at her words. He was actually thinking that she was indirectly telling him that she loves him. So he asked, “Who is this girl you are talking about?”
“It is Esther”
Wisdom stopped and stared at her. He was disappointed for the second time without knowing what to say.
“Yes, Wisdom” Tochi continued staring at him too. “She’s madly inlove with you. Why can’t you give her a chance? She’s my friend and I’m to be by her side always, please, give her a chance”
“But i don’t have any feelings for her!”
“Then develop it”
“I can’t! I have tried severally. My heart beat for only one woman. She’s the person i dream of day and night. How do you expect me to neglect my feelings?”
Tochi’s heart began to beat again as she stared and listened to him.
“Who is the woman your heart beat for?” she asked.
Wisdom wanted to respond but the presence of Jennifer who stood in their presence prevented him. She looked at Both of them angrily and hissed, then she walked away.
“Please, i have to go” Tochi also walked out but Wisdom held her back.
“I’m sorry, leave me alone” she added but Wisdom wouldn’t listen, then she get his hand off by force and walked into her classroom. She tried to think of how she feels for Wisdom, how girls flock around him, how she wasn’t in the same category with them and tears dropped from her eyes.
All the responsible students arrived including Esther, Chester, Melody and Calista. Just before the assembly was due, Chester went to Esther’s locker where she was bringing out her hymn book and startled her.
“Hi, good morning” he greeted.
“Good morning” Esther smiled at him and continued looking for the book. She thought of why Chester came to her that morning because it was unlike him.
“Can you give me your attention, please?” Chester requested, then she turned and smiled again. Her wetlips and power made her beauty sparkle.
“I want you to have this” Chested handed a package to her.
“What is this?” she gently took it smiling.
“It is for you and you alone”
Esther gradually opened it and couldn’t believe her eyes-a Samsung Galaxy cell phone!!
“Oh my God!” she exclaimed and looked at him. “Thank you” she said with a sad face.
“What is it?” Chester asked.
“I know you can afford this regarding your background but i can’t accept it. My parents will ask questions” to her surprise Chester brought out another package and handed it to her.
“I knew you will say something like this that’s why i made it two. It is a novel for women written by #Bright_Daniel, i hope you like it?” Chester said.
“I love it!” she exclaimed and glanced at the title; THE HEART OF WOMEN. “I like reading Bright Daniel’s novels. Thank you so much” she added.
“You are welcome” Chester walked away.
“But Chester!” she called him back. “Why are you giving me gifts?”
“Because you are my friend” he replied.
“Thank you once again”
“You are welcome once again” he smiled and departed.
The bell was rung and students went to the assembly ground. Tochi saw Jennifer monitoring her and making nefarious signs at her. She sensed that she was in trouble or probably will be beaten up by her or group of senior students. Wisdom looked disappointed and refused to talk or go to the assembly ground. Esther and Melody occasionally looked at him and wondered what was goin on..
