Though fighting was prohibited in WISS especially when it comes from a prefect like Wisdom who suppose to show good example, but the rules vanished from his head as he walked with all anger to Jennifer. Chester pursued him trying to stop him. “Wisdom stop, you are making a mistake!” he said.
Being a man and also a wise person, Wisdom knew that it will be against him and uncall for if him, a boy fight or quarrel with girl unnecessarily so he made it look like an offence. Before Jennifer could notice what was happening, Wisdom spank her back hardly and cut out a flower as a cane.
“Wisdom what is it?!” Jennifer asked.
“Get on your kneels!” Wisdom instruction preparin the cane very well. Seein that, Chester stood aside.
“I said get on your kneels!”
“For bullying an innocent girl, Tochi. And u know that’s against the school rules, so get on your kneels now!” Wisdom had never been so serious and annoyed. Chester wanted to stop him but he looked at him and said. “Stay out of this!”
“So because of Tochi that’s why you are acting this way” Jennifer hissed and walked out but Wisdom flogged her with the cane still insisting that she kneel down. Jennifer grabbed him on the cloth ready to fight which attracted several students, even Tochi saw them from a distance and wanted to go and separate them.
“Where are you going to?” Linda asked her.
“Please, i want to go and make peace”
“No, you are going nowhere!” Linda held her hand. “Let’s go home” she added.
“Linda, please nah!”
“I won’t allow you go there!”
“Okay, but let me see what will happen” Linda released her.
Meanwhile, Jennifer suddenly released Wisdom when Mr Anuma appeared.
“Caleb, what’s going on?” he asked.
“She bullied an innocent girl and refused to adhere to my instructions”
“Jennifer, you have to obey the senior prefect now!” Mr Anuma ordered.
“Get on your kneels!” Wisdom instructed again before she sluggishly knelt down, then Mr Anuma walked away.
Seeing that, Linda dragged Tochi home.
Jennifer remained like that under the sun planning how she will take her revenge. While Wisdom went to close the classrooms with Chester.
“Guy, you need to forgive her”
“But why would she lay her hands on an innocent girl for no reason?”
“Remember you did the same thing to Tochi before she became your friend”
“But with a good reason, she refused to show respect!”
Chester became quiet. Few minutes later, they went back to Jennifer. Meanwhile most students had gone except others and Calista who sat aside waiting for Jennifer to be released.
“You may stand up” Wisdom told her with a low voice. “I’m sorry but you are over reacting. Tochi has done nothing to you” he added.
Jennifer stood up and dusted her kneels looking at him.
“You did this because of Tochi abi” she said. “Well, you’ve not started because i won’t watch that girl take you away from me”
“Jennifer stop this madness! You’re acting crazy!”
“You are yet to see madness, just get ready!” she hissed and walked away followed by Calista.
Tochi sat before her table full of books. She couldn’t concentrat because she expected Wisdom to come. Even her mother noticed it.
“Tochi, is you teacher not coming today?” the mother asked.
“I don’t know mama” she replied.
Suddenly Wisdom appeared. He greeted Mrs Desmond who responded to him very well and he walked down to Tochi.
“Good evening” she greeted without smiling.
“Evening” Wisdom grabbed a current affairs and they began without any casualty.
5:50pm, Wisdom was set to go, he walked out expecting Tochi to escort him as usual but she didn’t.
“Tochi won’t you go and escort him?” the mother asked.
“Mama, i don’t want to”
“Biko nwam, is not good after helping you like this you allow him go like that. Just go and escort him”
Wisdom had already loosed hope that she won’t be escorting him but to his surprise Tochi walked beside him without saying a word.
“I thought you won’t escort me today” he broke the silence.
“I saw you punishing Jennifer” Tochi changed the topic.
“You shouldn’t have done that”
“Though i apologized to her and released her. But she shouldn’t have laid her hands on you”
“She thinks we are dating” she smiled.
“I’m sorry dear”
“No problem. But do me a favour” she stopped and stared into his eyes.
“What favour?” Wisdom asked.
“I want you tell Esther tomorrow that we aren’t dating and that you love her”
“For me to free my conscience. She thinks that I’m taking you away from her just like Jennifer!”
Wisdom remained speechless.
“Please, will you do that for me?” Tochi asked.
“I guess i should be going now” Wisdom walked out without looking back. Though, it pained Tochi, she felt her eyes wet with tears but she couldn’t do anything. She was only trying to make peace and free herself from trouble. She watched Wisdom walked until he vanished, then the tears finally dropped…
