Linda saw what was happening through the window and ran outside but didn’t go near because she was only but under all the senior students. So she walked around and stood behind Tochi whose hand was on her cheek to reduce the pain of the hot slap.
“We should deal with this girl eh!!” one of the seniors said and made a move but Esther turned and pushed her out.
“You people should get out of here and leave her alone!” she shouted.
“Esther, you pushed me because of this rat!” the student shouted.
“I will do worst than that if you don’t get out of here!”
The student wanted to make another move but Jennifer prevented her.
“Listen to me, Tochi” she began. “Anywhere you see Wisdom start running because next time i will do worst than a slap! Nonsense!” she hissed and walked out angrily with her friends shaking their butts vigorously. Just then, Melody and Chester sighted Esther through the window shouting at Tochi.
“I never knew you are this deadly and wicked” Esther began. “How can you stab me at the back after all i told you?”
“I swear we didn’t do anything” Tochi said. “We are not even doing anything” she added.
“You disgust me!” Esther walked out angrily. She nearly pushed Chester down unintentionally.
“Esther listen to me!” Tochi shouted and followed her. “Senior! Esther! Please, hear me out!” she stopped on the way and went into her classroom trying so hard to control her tears.
Melody and Chester became speechless wondering what was going on, so Chester asked Linda what happened and she told him everything from A-Z.
“That girl Jennifer is so annoying!” Chester said angrily and wanted to go and confront her but Melody held his arms.
“Don’t go there, you will make the issue worst” she said softly. “Just allow them be” she added.
Chester’s mind gradually slowed down then he looked at Melody’s hands on his arm and she gradually disengage her hands.
“I’m sorry” she said but Chester didn’t say a word, then they walked into their classroom while Linda also went into her classroom just to see Tochi with her head on her locker shedding tears.
“Is okay” she began. “You have only one option for this tears not to linger. Just stay away from Wisdom. I’m telling you as a friend who knows what Jennifer and her mother can do to get what they want” she placed her hand on her shoulder.
Esther’s eyes were wet with tears too but wasn’t crying. She spaced out through the window since her locker was beside the window. Her heart was partially broken when she decided to let Wisdom know her feelings by herself instead of sending people like Tochi whom she believed that betrayed her. Just then Melody and Chester walked up to her.
“Esther is okay” Chester gradually touched her shoulder. “Tochi is innocent. She’s not having any relationship with Wisdom” he added but Esther didn’t look at him.
Seeing that, Melody gradually went out to Jennifer and her friends. She met them laughing seriously at the entrance of the classroom.
“Just look at how you are disgracing yourself!” she told Jennifer.
“Wait, na who get this one way you talk now?!” Jennifer asked in pigin English.
“You heard me, how could you do such a thing to that innocent girl?”
“Come, you don smoke weed, abi?”
“Don’t mind her?” Calista added disdainfully. “Come, i saw you holding Chester’s arms. I hope you are not eying him or you will also receive slap” she added.
“Both of you disgust me! I cease to be your friend from today” Melody walked out shaking her attractive butt involuntarily.
“And who cares?!” Jennifer shouted. “Gerara heeaar!” she added and they laughed.
Break period ended yet, Wisdom wasn’t back from the important and difficult erran. Just ten minutes before school over, he arrived and found everywhere quiet and organized. Tochi saw him walking into principal’s office through the window and she removed her eyes instantly. But that wasn’t constant. She kept glancing at the office to know when he will come out looking admirable. Suddenly, the bell rang for school over.
Just as Wisdom was walking to Chester’s classroom, he saw Tochi and Linda going home with their bags.
“Tochi!” he called but she didn’t answer him. “Tochukwu!” yet, no response.
To his very eyes, Melody and Esther walked out and headed straight to the road of their homes without even saying ‘Hi’ as usual, then he wondered why.
“Guy, what is going on?” Wisdom asked Chester who met him. “Why is everybody behaving formal to me?”
“You mean Esther and Tochi?”
“Jennifer got into a fight with Tochi because of you, in Esther’s presence and you know what that means”
“But why would Jennifer do such a thing?”
“Guy, i can’t believe you are the one asking this question! She said she saw you with Tochi at Mr Anuma’s office on Friday”
“And so what?! I think that girl is over reacting. What nonsense is that?! I’m going to teach her a lesson!”
“Guy, calm down”
Wisdom saw Jennifer and Calista at that moment, then he hurried to meet them..
