The school bell rang, and within minutes the assembly ground was filled with students. I hurried to the ss2 girls line and fixed myself into a position, where i got a tap from behind. It was Deborah Omonaiye, my best friend. We smiled and chuckled at each other, whispering words only we, could understand. We listened to the announcement made by the principal, who left after the announcement leaving the ss3 prefects to end the assembly with the usual routine of show me your nails, where is ur socks etc.
The ss3 prefects shared themselves into different class with the head boy, Deborah’s immediate elder brother, Nicholas Omonaiye inspecting my class. I have never agreed to be on the same boat with Nicholas, i can’t stand him. I remember how he had written me a love letter in my jss1, which i gave to the principal who punished him infront of every one present at school that day. And since then, we have become enemies, now, i wonder why he chose to inspect this class. Nicholas looked more handsome than ever, he has a well built tall body with fair complexion, he was known as smart, funny and intelligent but the only thing i know about him was his arrogance.
I kept my calm even if i couldnt stand the sight of him, i thought i would explode if he comes close to me but he seems to draw near, as he moved towards me on this line.
“Oh, how i hate him, see the way he keeps flirting with the female students. Yuck i feel like throwing up” i said irritated, to Deborah who laughed uncontrollaby.
“What does he even feel like?” i held on tightly to Deborah’s hand as Nicholas got to me.
I was restless and already sweating and felt like throwing up on him. He looked at me and smiled making me wonder why he was smiling. He drew closer to me and whispered into my ear and i felt like melting into the ground. He left me to inspect others, then after which dismissed us into our various class.
I lost concentration in class that morning, and wondered why he wanted to see me during lunch break. Deborah was the only one who knew what Nicholas told me, she has told me a million times that she can’t wait 2 have me as her sister inlaw.
While still in deep thought, the school bell rang for lunch break, and i felt sick as the sound of ban ga, ban ga, ban ga came out from the bell. I buried my face in my hands and prayed that moment pass me by, i also dismissed Deborah with a nod when she asked if i was alright telling her i would join her at the school’s restaurant. I composed myself and was determined to eat before seeing the headboy if not i would lose my appetite for the rest of the day.
I hurried to the school’s restaurant but was stopped from buying my snacks by Raymond the games prefect who happens to be Nicholas best friend.
