THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Final Episode (Episode 41)
The lesson lasted for 1hr and Tochi escorted Wisdom as usual.
“Promise me you will make me proud next week” Wisdom told her but she didn’t answer rather she began to bite her fingernail.
“There is no reason to be scared. Just believe in yourself and you will make it, okay?”
“Okay, thank you” Tochi replied.
“See you next week, but make sure you keep studying”
“I will” they hugged and departed.
It was the quiz day. All students came to school as early as possible. The school hall was decorated with different colours of fabric and chairs arranged in order. A dim light shone at the centre of the place meant for the participants. Esther entered into her classroom and saw Chester keeping his bag.
“Good morning, Chester” she greeted and passed.
“Morning, welcome” Chester replied looking at her. But she stopped and turned.
“How was your weekend?” she asked.
“It was fine. And you?”
They stared at each other. Chester could see her glowing with smiles and beauty.
“I’m sorry..” both said at the same time and paused still smiling.
“I’m sorry for acting woozy the other time” Esther said.
“Is okay, i understand. I’m also sorry for.. kissing you”
“No, you shouldn’t be. It was actually nice” she smiled.
“Really? Does that make us friends?”
“No, that makes us more than a friend” she replied and smiled out looking charming.
Chester couldn’t believe it! “Yes!!” he exclaimed silently and walked out.
The assembly and other school activities ended very well. Now was the time for the quiz. The bell was wrong and all the students began to move into the hall. Melody and Calista met Esther on her way to the hall too and they gave her unexpected hugged.
“Come on, girls, what’s this hug for?” Esther asked smiling. “I hope you are not planning to kidnap me”
“Yes, we want to kidnap you” Calista replied. “After all Chester is capable of paying a ransom” she added and they laughed.
“You girls are not serious”
“You look beautiful today oh. Tell us the secret” Melody requested.
“Yes, tell us” Calista supported.
“It seems like they sent both of you to tempt me this afternoon. Well, lets go and win the quiz, after we talk about that” Esther replied and they smiled out like big friends holding hands together. Just at the entrance of the hall, Tochi met them.
“Good day seniors” she greeted smiling.
“Hey Tochi!!” all shouted.
“I hope you are going to make us proud” Esther said.
“Aren’t you supporting your class?” Tochi asked.
“Forget about our class. We are supporting you” Calista said.
“Thank you!” she exclaimed smiling and they walked in.
The hall was populated with more than one thousand students. Mr Anuma and the principal’s with other teachers walked to the front of all students. Wisdom, Chester and the other prefects walked around with canes to keep everybody calm.
“Good afternoon students?!”
“Good afternoon sir!”
Mr Nelson began with a microphone in his hand. “Today is the day we all have been waiting for. The participants are required to come up here if they hear their names”
Mr Anuma began to call the names. As he called, students clapped. When Tochi was called, she looked at Wisdom who smiled at her broadly and her heart skipped.
Few minutes later, the quiz commenced. As brilliant students, SS3 was winning the SS2 with one point but just at the end, SS2 met up with them with the help of Tochi who answered several questions and Mr Anuma couldn’t believe it! Only a question was remaining.
“SS3, what is the meaning of the word EXPOSTULATE?”
The hall became quiet anticipating to know the winner. SS3 participants couldn’t think of the meaning of EXPOSTULATE.
“It means to move from one place to another” one of them answered.
“Wrong! Bonus to the SS2”
Hearing that, students became more quiet.
“Come on Tochi!” Wisdom exclaimed in his mind. Then Tochi stood up at the sight of everybody and said, “Expostulate means to argue or disagree about something”
There was a thunderous clap and shout in the hall and without wasting time prices were given to d SS2 participants especially Tochi.
“I’m very impress for the performance of the SS2 students..” the principal narrated and gave Tochi microphone to say something, then all the hall became quiet. Before she started tears ran down from her eyes.
“I thank you all who supported and show me kindness. I thank Mr Anuma for his help, even Wisdom who sacrificed to make sure i win this quiz. I was once regarde as personanongrata but they accepted and made me believe in myself. I also say a big thank u to my friends, Linda, Esther, Chester Melody and Calista, even d principal. Thank u all!” everybody began to clap. Wisdom’s eyes caught with hers and they smiled again.
Jennifer never hesitated to study her books. She sat outside with a book before her remembering all her friends and past actions in school, then tears ran down from her eyes.
