THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Edwin smiled at Jennifer. He stood up from her seat when students were ready for the second paper. He glanced at Melody and smiled at her even though she pretended not to see him. Everybody was ready except Jennifer who was lost in thought of what Edwin told her but she came back to her senses when a question paper was dropped on her locker, then she began to fill her personal data.
The exam lasted for another two hours and students began to troop outside. Before then, Mr Anuma stood in front of them all and said, “Those of you who have turned this school to a love or romantic garden should be careful..”
Hearing that, Esther giggled looking at Chester because she knew he was indirectly talking to her.
Mr Anuma continued, “You are here to put down what you have been taught throughout the years not taking pleasure on someone’s thighs. Understood?!”
“Yes, sir” the students responded.
Jennifer was the last person to leave the hall. Nobody talked to her or walked with her. She moved outside and saw Edwin standing with Wisdom under the same tree then she shamefully walked to them.
“Good day” she greeted with her face down. Wisdom was surprise, he actually thought the greeting was meant for Edwin but realised it was for him when Jennifer greeted again saying, “Good day, Wisdom”
“Good day, how are you?” he responded.
“I guess I’m fine”
Edwin kept smiling as he watched both of them. He could see Jennifer glancing at him occasionally feeling shy to say something or apologize for something.
“I..i..i..” Jennifer began slightly looking at Wisdom and glanced at Edwin again. “I’m sorry for what i have done to you and Tochi. Please, forgive me” she said.
Wisdom couldn’t believe his ears. “Is okay, dear. You were only carried away” he replied.
“Does that mean you have forgiven me?”
They smiled at each other. Jennifer looked at Edwin and found out that he was staring at Melody and Calista at a distance.
“Please, excuse me” Edwin said and went out to meet them. Just at that moment, Chester and Esther arrived.
“Hi bro” he shook hands with Wisdom without looking at Jennifer.
“Hi, Jennifer” Esther said standing very close to Chester with her hands across his arms.
“Hi” Jennifer replied. “Do i need to apologize to you too?” she asked.
“Apologize for what?” Chester asked.
“For my past actions. Listen, I’m sorry for whatever i have done to you and for disgracing myself in the public”
“Is okay” Chester said.
“Oh my dear, come here, i really missed you!” Esther gave her a hug.
“Thanks” she replied from her shoulder smiling.
“But promise me you won’t be troublesome again”
“I promise” they giggled and hugged again while Chester and Wisdom couldn’t stop smiling.
Just at a distance from the entrance of the hall beside a palm tree, Edwin meet Calista and Melody discussing.
“Hi” he interrupted them.
“Hi” Calista replied and glanced at Melody who also greeted.
“Please, can i have a word with you? I mean Melody”
Calista smiled. “I think you both need some privacy, but stay away from Mr Anuma’s sight” she said and went out, then Melody stared at Edwin feeling her heartbeat…
Calista was surprised when she saw Jennifer and others under the tree laughing and chatting then she quickly moved closer.
“What is going on here?” she asked letting out a smile.
“And what does it seem like is going on here?” Jennifer replied smiling too.
“We are turning the school into a romantic garden” Esther replied and they laughed.
Jennifer hugged Calista and said. “I’m sorry for..”
“Is okay, i understand”Calista interrupted. “I’m so happy to have you back” she added.
“I’m happy too” they smiled and joined the conversation.
Melody had never found herself in the position where she stood with Edwin beside the palm tree. She could sense unspoken words from him, probably one of those preaching boys do just to win a girl’s heart.
“I have been trying to catch your attention” Edwin began with a smile. “How did you see the exam?”
“It was fine” Melody replied and gave out a smile too. “I saw you talking to Wisdom. Do you know him” she asked.
“Not really, i just made him a friend when i discovered that he has my personality”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean he is a senior prefect like me and reason like me too”
“Wow, senior prefect of which school?”
“Intellectual Academy Senior Secondary Schools”
“I think that makes us friends too”
“But i don’t have your personality”
“Does it really matter?”
“Sometimes it does”
“Not in this case” they smiled and became quiet. “Can i have your number?” Edwin requested.
“Sorry, i don’t have a phone”
“Then have mine” Edwin gave her his number and they smiled out to Jennifer and others.
“What is going on here?” Calista asked.
“We should be asking you what you are doing with a handsome guy” Esther replied and they smiled.
Jennifer apologized to her and Wisdom introduced Edwin to Esther and Chester, then they went away discussing like big friends..
