THE POOR HERO

 

Amaka was the prettiest girl in my class while in primary two.
She was loved by everyone including teachers and students alike. Everyone wanted to be her friend and I wasn’t an exception. I used to pray for the day she would borrow sharpener from me so that I could have the opportunity to talk to her but she never borrowed anything from me because she had lots of whatever she wanted.

One day, the names of noisemakers was written by the assistant class monitor who was a girl and didn’t like Amaka like the rest of us, so she wrote Amaka’s name.
My name was in it too.

When it was time for us to be flogged, the teacher said he was giving us three strokes each. Even though I had a phobia for ‘koboko’, I decided to do ‘odeshi’ for my three strokes because I didn’t want Amaka to see me cry. After my three lashes, I went to my seat. It was from there I saw my pretty Amaka shivering out out fear. She was already crying even though it wasn’t her turn to be flogged. My heart melted for her.
Finally, her turn came.

As the teacher was about to cane her, I stood up from my seat and shouted, ‘Uncle I will collect the cane for her!’

The whole class became quiet. Everyone’s mouth was opened. The teacher turned to me and asked, “what did you say?”
I replied again, “I want to collect the cane for her”.

I saw the look on Amaka’s face. She was surprised. I felt like a savior and wanted to use this moment to show her that I can go any length to get her attention. I was ready to sacrifice my little bumbum.

“Come outside!”, he commanded me, as he asked Amaka to go back to her seat.
The tempo of my heartbeat increased. Everyone’s gaze was fixed on me and the teacher.

As I got to where he was, he muttered something like ‘stupid boy, I will show you today’ and grabbed me by the front part of my shorts thereby making my bumbum very visible and smooth and even revealing the lines of the panties I wore. I knew I was in trouble because he didn’t hold anybody’s shorts this way.

I was still feeling the pain from the one I received for myself and now I was about to collect for Amaka. I didn’t bother, at least, Amaka will be my friend after now and she will borrow my cleaner and sharpener henceforth.

The first stroke landed on me and it felt like a cutlass was used to divide my yansh!

I screamed with pain as I tried to escape from the teacher’s grip but he was way bigger than me so I couldn’t escape.

The second stroke came, fiam!
This time around, I knew I was going to die in this man’s hand. The whole class felt for me. I tried to look at Amaka’s face and that was when I saw her laughing at me. My heart broke like the screen of a Tecno phone. See the person I’m suffering for laughing at me when others were pitying me.

The third one came gbam! and landed on the same place that the other ones landed!
I thought that was all since it was three strokes each, but the teacher didn’t let me go.
I ended up receiving 6 hefty strokes for Amaka!

As he let me go, I staggered and fell down. It was as if I was paralyzed.
Somehow, I managed to get to my seat.

Everyone was telling me sorry and it made me cry the more.
I expected Amaka to be the first person to come and tell me sorry but she never came.

After closing hours, I was going to meet her and talk to her when I saw her talking to another boy from my class.

“Amaka how are you?” I asked her. She looked at me and burst into the loud laugher with the other boy.

I began to cry again. I felt betrayed!
That day, I concluded that she was a witch because no normal person would do what she did to me. I was left with many questions. How could she not sympathise with me after all I did? Not even a small accolade. I was devastated!

Today’s lesson is simple!
1. Not everyone you sacrifice for, will appreciate you. Some people are born ingrates.
2. Never inherit another man’s problems in the name of helping them. That’s foolishness.
3. Never inherit another man’s enemy in the name of trying to be loyal! The enemy may deal with you more than they dealt with the person!
4. Never try to force someone into loving you, let it happen naturally else your efforts may end up in tears!
5. I called her a witch because I couldn’t get her to like me.
Because you can’t have something doesn’t mean you should call it bad. That you’re poor, does not make money bad. That you can’t afford an iPhone doesnt mean you should start beefing those who own it. Lol

The following day at school, her name was written again as a noisemaker but mine wasn’t written because I had not even recovered from the strokes of the previous day, so I didn’t have the power to make noise.

As it got to her turn to be flogged, the teacher paused and said, “where is that your husband that collected cane for you yesterday?”

As she pointed to me, I wanted to invoke the gods of my forefathers on her but didn’t know to reach them so I just gave her that Patience Ozokwu kind of evil eyes until the teacher then asked me, “are you not collecting for her today?”

As I nodded my head to say no, tears flowed down my small cheeks when i remembered the previous day, but that didn’t block my view from seeing Amaka cry as the Uncle unleashed six sweet strokes on her buttocks and I clapped for him from where I was seated!
That was the day I knew My God is indeed a God of vengeance! Lol

★★ JUNE ★★
My heart skipped a beat as Erick hugged me but I maintained my balance and rested my chin on his shoulder.
I could get used to this, this warmth, and comfort. My hands were slowly starting to rise up and hug him back but Augie’s happy voice ruined the moment.
“Erick!!!” he called happily, he and Ella running up to meet him, Erick let’s go of me and with a smile he walked passed me to meet my baby brother and his Ex dog.
I closed the door with a sigh and turned to the happy reunion in front of my eyes.
The door to my grandma’s room opened and of course, my grandma walked out.
“oh, Erick!” she exclaimed
“grandma!” Erick smiled and walked up to her to give her a hug.
“is it just me or you look more younger and prettier” Erick said and my grandma laughed hysterically pulling his cheeks.
“you’ll never change”.
“and why in the world, would I change?” Erick smiled.
“so what should I get you! Water? Juice—
“grandma, am fine and I also ate like a king during dinner, so it’s okay” Erick smiled and my grandma smiled.
My family surrounded Erick and bombered him with different kind of questions.
My grandma asking him about his new life, and Augie at the same time asking him why he dyed his hair blue and Ella barking and jumping around Erick asking him questions of her own, that no one understands.
I just sat still and watched Erick bring laughter to the whole house and I laughed too when he talked something funny, I kind of missed this atmosphere, I missed the days when dinner would be fun because Erick was there and I also missed the days chores became fun cause he was still there too.. He is such an influence.
*.
Finally Augie fell asleep and Ella fell asleep on his stomach, wrapping her small body to fit his small body.
Maltese dogs are just so small
My grandma retired to her room. Wishing us goodnight and I sighed as I slowly carried Ella from my baby brother’s stomach.
I was about to carry Augie up but Erick stopped me.
“it’s fine” I tell him.. “it’s not like it’s the first time I’ll be taking his sleeping body to bed”.
“still, you’re a girl and I’m a guy watching you carry him will just make me a complete useless Person” Erick said and picked up Augie carefully placing him on his shoulder.
I picked Ella up and trailed behind Erick as he walked to my room, the door was open. So we just walked in and I closed the door after dropping Ella on her doggy bed.
Augie was placed on his bed by Erick while I covered his body with the thick blanket.
“whoa” Erick said.
“what?” I asked as I watched him look at sleeping Augie.
“he looks so much like you!” he blurted and I laughed.
“his my brother you idiot! How can we not look alike” I rolled my eyes.
“but you know June, this feels weird” Erick whispered with a smile and he bit his bottom lip still smiling.
“what, feels weird?” I asked.
“it’s like we’re putting our ‘son’ off to bed” Erick said and I rolled my eyes and walked away from him.
“you’re unbelievable” I said as I got on my own bed and rummage through my drawer for a rubber band.
“what?. I am actually making a point, we both look like two young parents” Erick said walking up to me.
“sometimes you say the most stupidest thing ever” I huffed pushing the strands of hair in front of my face to go with my sudden pony tail.
“and sometimes, the most stupidest thing may be the most meaningful thing” Erick said as he got on my bed.
“hey take off your shoes” I warned him.
“what? It’s not like I’m sitting with my feet” he scoffed.
“I don’t care, take it off” I said and he sighed and pushed his shoes off his legs leaving a pair of black stockings on his feet.
“happy?” he mocked
“more than you think” I smiled.
He let out a small sigh and laid on the bed, removing my hands on my thigh, he laid his head on my thighs, and placed my hands on his hair.
“what are you—
“can you please not complain and just let me stay like this for a while” he said with his eyes closed and my vocal chords clogged immediately.
We both remained quiet and my hands didn’t move from his hair, the air was cool and fine minutes ago but now, it seems hot and I feel like I’m gonna burst any minute.

“say something” Erick said, his eyes still closed. “I hate silence”.
“wh–what do you want me to say?” I stutter.
“anything, you can sing if you want to.”
“no, I think I’ve had enough singing today,” I said and his eyes fluttered opened and it was staring at mine and I don’t know how foolish I’ve become that my eyes suddenly adverted to his lips but I quickly shifted them back to his eyes.
“what was that?” he asked with a teasing smile.
“what was what?” I asked looking away.
“I saw you, why did you look at my lips Like that?” he asked, and even though I’m not looking at him I know he’s holding the most teasing smile he could produce.
“I–I–i did not–
“do not lie to me June, I saw you” he interrupted me and sat up.

“you totally wanted to–
“can you just shut up” I yelled and he laughed, shook his head negatively and laid back on the bed with his hair on my thigh.
“June.” he called.
“what?” I barked.
“can you cool it, I was just joking okay” he laughed.
“well have I told you I never find your jokes funny” I asked looking down at him sternly.
“you wouldn’t cause my jokes always comes out as a joke and half the truth” he said and I rolled my eyes.
He breathed out a small sigh. While I looked away…
This feels weirdly comfotable, even though it shouldn’t. I am actually enjoying Erick’s company…

“have you… Dated a guy before?” his voice echoed.
Why Is he suddenly asking “this” kind of question.
“why are you asking?”
“I don’t know…” he shrugged on my legs.
“you’re kind of acting like someone who got her heart broken big time” he said and I smiled.
“yeah, I did got my heart broken once!” I said and slowly looked down at him to see his reaction and he was staring straight at me, but he suddenly stood up.
“really?” he asked as he adjusted a little closer to me.
“yeah.” I said looking away to smile at the wall.
“well that explains why you’re like this.”
“like what?” I snapped.
“nothing” he replied with a grin “so tell me June, this guy that broke your heart, how did it start and how did it end”.
“well see I was in the Nineth grade when that happened” I said with a nod
“okay I’m all ears.” Erick smiled.
“you want me to narrate the whole story to you?” I asked.
“yep” he replied making the “p” pop.
Time for a whole story of lies.
“okay so there’s this guy Jus.. John… No.. Jared… Yes Jared! He’s tall—
“taller than me?” Erick caught me off with a smile.
“he’s– he’s height is just like yours”. I said and Erick nod.
“he has blonde hair, brown eyes, he’s a little bit slender, he’s got perfect nose and amazing lips he also has this smile that makes your heart melt and gosh he’s a smile addict—
“wait! Why do I feel like you’re talking about me?” Erick said and I glowered at him.
“Shut up I’m taking about John this is about John”. I yelled.
“but I thought you said his name was Jared?”
“I did?” God I am so bad at lying
“yeah,, wait are you making this all up?”
“what! No way he’s name is Jared and he’s got a baby brother names John, their names get me confused sometimes” I said with a nervous laugh “so Jared was the captain of the football club then and gosh all the girls loved him cause you knows, he’s our handsome Jared and we always win whenever there’s a football game and whenever he’s around, so luckily out of all the whole girls in school he chose me!” I said and bat my lashes dramatically.
“I don’t see a reason for him not to” Erick said and I blushed.

“anyways… He told me he liked me and I liked him too and we started to go out” I paused thinking of another lie.
“okay, why or how did he break your heart?” Erick asked inquisitively.
“he uhm… He… He stole… My pen and lied about… It, and then we broke up” I said and bit my lip hard, I am terrible at lies!.
“what? That is one cliché story! How can you guys break up because of a stupid pen, are you lying to me??” he asked narrowing his eyes.
“I am not! And did I say pen, that’s what actually happened to his brother, I caught him kissing another girl and he lied about it when I tried to confront him about it” I said and the look Erick gave me made me gulped hard.
“you’re lying” Erick breathed.
“and why would I?”
“cause somehow you think this is fun, telling me about some guy who you described as me and how he broke your heart by stealing your pen then kissing a girl”. I giggled a little when I listened to my story in my head and he grabbed my hand.
“okay, maybe, somehow I am making up stories or so but it doesn’t matter” I rolled my eyes.
“it does matter cause you’re keeping your heart isolated and it’s…” he sighed…
“you know I really like you June and–
“can we not talk about this now Erick” I said slipping my hand away from his and standing up.
“if not now, then when?” he asked standing up.
“I don’t know—but can we please not talk about it now?” I said folding my hand, I’m suddenly feeling cold.
“you always do this, pushing me away or shunning me whenever I talk about my feelings with you, at least am honest and proud about it, how long do I have to wait?” he asked and I bit my lips and looked up at him.
“a little longer” I mumbled and I moved back a little cause he moved closer to me.
He remained quiet for a while and so did I. . .
Finally I heard his sigh and “fine” after that.
“I’ll wait! You don’t know but I’m pretty good at it” he said and I looked up at him to see his slightly disappointed face.
His phone suddenly ring and he brought it out from his pocket, he rolled his eyes and shoved it back in his pocket.
“I have to go” he announced
“oh!” I said and looked away,
Good… For me.
“I’ll escort you to the door” I said but he shook his head negatively.
“don’t! You might not like what I might do and besides, you might not come back too” he said calmly and my eyebrows flew up.
What is this dude saying, Just by escorting him to the door, I might not return home??.

“so… Uhm… Goodnight?” I shrugged
“no… It’s actually a bad night” he said making me flinch.
I’m sorry Erick I don’t know why I’m being like this towards you, I wanted to say so badly but I couldn’t bring myself too.
What is wrong with me.
He suddenly moved closer and gave me one of his comforting hugs,
and I hugged him back.
He said nothing as he let’s go of me and I couldn’t even look at him as he walked towards the door and opened it and walked out.
<~~•~~>
He did it!
That night I couldn’t sleep, I kept tossing and turning like never before,
My heart is still working and I know that… And I do know I like Erick but I don’t know, I don’t know what to even think.
I screamed in my pillow loudly and turned on my night light,
I hate this!!! Not being able to sleep.
I decided to listen to music, maybe it’ll help me fall asleep. But when I tried it, it didn’t work I just sang along and it’s Maria Li’s song, how can I not sing along.

I haven’t watched Erick’s video yet. I smiled at the recall of that, I head straight to YouTube, it’s been years since I’ve been to the Internet. Aside watching or downloading Maria Li’s song. I haven’t done anything.
I searched the name Erick and Erick-J suddenly popped on the search list and my eyes widen immediately. I tapped on the name and it took me to his music video.
“8.9million views” I gasped as I clicked on watch to watch the video.
*.
After re-watching Erick’s music video for the fifth time I was starting to feel a bit sleepy, but I couldn’t help the smile that made my lips stretch so widely as I watched as Erick gave the camera a breath taking gaze as the video ended.
This guy likes me! I thought as I dropped my phone on my drawer,
But what the hell is holding me back?!! I thought, thinking about that my eyes slowly starts to close and before I knew it, I fell asleep
*.
The rays of sunlight shone on my face and the amazing smell of burnt crust and butter filled my nostrils and I smiled and slowly opened my eyes.
It was twelve pm when I looked at the time and I slowly walked to the bathroom to brush my teeth.
As I brushed my teeth, I looked at myself in the wall mirror,
What the hell did Erick sees in me. I held my brush with my teeth and touched my face, I examined my huge round eyes and sighed, my eyes moved down to my lips, I’ve always wanted full lips but I got thin ones instead.
I stopped examining myself and continued to brush my teeth.
:
The house seemed quiet, I’ve eaten breakfast but still I feel empty, sitting outside staring at the empty street with Ella jumping around my leg.
“go play by yourself Ella. I’m not in the mood to play with you” I said and she let out a pitiful yelp.
“you just have to wait till Augie’s back from school”. I said and she suddenly jumped at the mention of Augie and ran inside.
I sighed as I stared at the blank sky, my chest feels heavy and I don’t know why.
Actually… I do know why..
I suddenly head inside and putting on my sandals, I yelled from the door.
“grandma, I’ll be back”.
“where are you going?” she yelled from inside.
“uhhh… To Erick’s?” I said truthfully
“okay be back before dinner” she announced
“I will.”
I hurried down the stairs of our building and the wind took over my hair. Today’s supposed to be my resting day for yesterday’s stress, but no! This is more important.

Erick smiled at me and goodness his blue hair was to die for. And Daniel’s gone pink, which suit him too.
“oh my God” Grace said standing up.
“D-Daniel..” she stutter.. “E-Erick”.
Daniel smiled at her and Cassie quickly stood up,
“Daniel, I am your biggest fan and… ” she sighed breathlessly giving both of them a loving look.
“and you, and I just love the both of you”. Cassie said and Grace nodded.
“well that’s great.. cause we love you guys too” Daniel said giving them a small smile.

“oh if it isn’t Travel” Erick said smiling.
“it’s Travis”. Travis snapped.
“yeah, whatever” Erick smiled and walked up to me.

“hey” I said with a smile and he held my hand making me stand up.
The number of eyes staring at us made me gulped down and I had to avoid their eyes and look at Erick.
“h-happy debut’s day” I said and he laughed.
“that’s not a thing” he said.
“sorry… I’m just out of words” I said lowly.
“you look beautiful” he said and grace coughed and held myself not to glance at her and give her a glare. “thanks”.. I beamed.
“you’re all getting ready for the competition right?” Erick asked and I nod.
“luckily, I found a pen in my bag, Daniel can I have your autograph, I missed your fan signing event” Cassie said and Daniel smiled.”sure” and took the pen from her.
“where would you like me to sign?” Daniel asked.
“on my wrist” Cassie replied immediately.
Daniel took her wrist and grace yelped. While Erick turned back to me “I missed you, it was kind of stressful and bored without you there”.
“oh” I said my cheeks heating up. I can’t help myself when he’s being like this
“And I also–
His buzzing phone interrupted him from finishing his words, and he sighed and he read whatever was on his screen.
“dang it!” he muttered as he dropped his phone back in his pocket. “I have to go, these days I’m gonna be a lot scarcer than ever because of my debut” he sighed and pushed his hair back.
“your hair. . .” I said
“what is it bad?” he rushed his words
“no! it’s beautiful and so is Daniel’s” I smiled and glanced at Daniel to see him crowded by Grace and Cassie.
“I asked for myself not for Daniel too, you could have just complimented me alone”
“can you not be a jealous freak!” I rolled my eyes and he laughed.
“I’ll try, anyways I have to go I’ll see you when heavens tell us too” he said and gave a charming smile.
“okay,” I laughed.
He let’s go of my hand and sighed tiredly looking at me.
“what?” I asked.
“i-i… I could have kissed you but I’ll ruin your makeover” he said.
°It doesn’t matter° I wanted to say but good thing I stopped myself cause I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
“i–i–i
I stopped talking cause I keep saying “I” which means I don’t know what to say, even if I really do.
“anyways, I’ll see you real soon” he said, smiled and walked up to Daniel, Grace and Cassie asked for Erick’s autograph and he gave them too.
“don’t you want one?” Erick asked Travis, referring to their autographs
“I’m good” Travis replied sternly.
“okay… Here’s your pen” Erick handed Cassie her pen.
“good luck to you all” Erick said.
“thanks” Grace grinned and Erick glance at me before he and Daniel walked out.

“today is the most happiest day of my life” Cassie smiled sitting back on her chair.
“yeah I almost cried” Grace added.
“tch” Travis scoffed.
“oh and Travis, have you met Daniel and Erick before?” Cassie asked.
“they would have probably have, cause how would they know his name” Grace said
“I’ve met them and they hate me, you could have heard Erick called me Travel” Travis said and he turned to me while I gave him an apologizing look.
Cassie suddenly laughed hysterically and we all turned to her.
“Travel? Wow that’s more convenient than Travis” she said while Travis rolled his eyes.
“but I have to say this June! I’m jealous, you’re dating a celebrity and he’s also best friend with the king of pop and wow… You’re lucky” Grace said whimsically and I smiled briefly.
The door opened and our stylists walked inside with our clothes.
“wow…” grace beamed as she gazed at the clothes happily, the clothes were all purple and black and it was shiny and sparkly like that of a clothes worn at disco balls.
“here”. One of the stylist said and gave Travis his clothes, And ours was handed to us.
“you! You can change in here” one of the stylist said and moved Travis to a door, and no one knew there was a door there cause there was no knob, the door just rhymed with the wall.
We were all moved to a small dressing room and I don’t know if anyone’s room is as tiny as mine cause mine’s suffocating.
I quickly changed into the black crop top and sparkly purple bum short, the shorts surprisingly came with purple sparkly suspenders and after bracing it up, I slipped the black shoes on which has sparkly shoe laces and lastly put on the sparkly purple hand gloves that came with the clothes.
I walked out of the small room and met Travis who was already dressed in a black pants, a black shirt and a sparkly blazer on top of the shirt. Cassie came out next and hers was a purple sparkly short jumpsuit with a black belly belt around her waist. Grace came out last and hers was a simple armless purple crop top and black trousers with purple sparkly belt and the same shoes as mine.
We heard noises coming from outside and one of the stylist said to us “our job here is done and everyone’s outside you guys need to go”.
We all walked out after the stylist who went their own way. And I was surprised to see every group looking fabulous with their group colour code. And everyone wearing sparkly outfits, ours were purple and the first group were green, the third group were blue and the last group were orange.
We all gathered together cause we were all told to and suddenly four judges walked in, two male two females, all wearing thick red suits and none of them smiling.
Why do they always give us mean looking judges.
The judges moved to the four chairs facing the stage and they all sat down.
A woman walked up to the stage with a smile and a microphone in her hand.
“um… Hi everyone.” she said and the curious eyes made her smile again and continued, “you all know that during your last round, you were told that this round you’re all going to perform three times before entering the next round, but guess what! Due to some stuff going on in the industry that rule has been terminated, you get to the next round with just this performance, so you all should do your best with this performance and reach for the stars!!!” the woman said and everyone clapped. While she walked down the stage.
*.
The first group were called on stage the song they chose got everyone’s body moving to the beat,
“I don’t know what song this is, but this is pretty good” Cassie said.
“guys is it just me or are these clothes tight and suffocating” Grace said and fanned herself with her hand.
“it’s not! It’s fabulous” Cassie said.
I glance at Grace and she looked scared as she watched the first group display their awesome dance moves.
“are you nervous?” I asked Grace as I stood beside her.
“no!” she scoffed. (this story is written by Ruthie Lee)
“you don’t have to lie, I know you are and honestly I am too” I said and she breathed out a sigh of relief. “I am so nervous I feel like crying” Grace stated and Travis turned to her, placing his hands on her shoulder.
“you don’t have to be Grace, just act like you’re still in dance class and just let your body go with the music okay, we’re all human here don’t act like someone’s going to slaughter you for not performing well, and let me tell you nervousness ruins everything, so just get rid of your nervousness and Let’s blow everyone’s mind and I believe we have the best dance moves and amazing song to go with, so Grace, I don’t see any reason for you to be nervous” Travis expound and Grace pulled him in a hug.
“thanks Travis” she muttered
“you’re welcome” he said as he hugged her back.
*.
We watched the first group dance together and Travis hand laid on Grace’s shoulder the whole time, he was keeping her calm the whole time and she felt comfortable under his under his arm and rested her head on his shoulder.
Cassie kept looking at them and I kept looking at her looking at them without her knowing .
Finally the first group ended their performance and everyone clapped.
“remember guys, Let’s give our best!” Travis stated strongly as our group name were being called.
::
::
We ended our performance with a catchy pose and everyone clapped.
“wow that was magical” Grace said happily, as we all walked down to the crowd.
We all did great no one became the best dancer when we got on stage cause everyone did their best in singing and dancing, the lyrics giving to Grace was strong and she did a pretty good job drawing the song and dancing at the same time. And I think getting that part perfectly is making her happy
“see I told you there’s nothing to worry about” Travis said and she flashed him a smile.
Cassie rolled her eyes at that I started to wonder what was wrong with her.
A woman came and handed us bottled water and everyone chugged down the whole thing, I can’t believe I’ll be so thirsty to ask for another bottle.
The next group chose a slow song and everyone giggled to how slow and funny the dance looked and oh their poor souls, the judges are looking pretty angry and I don’t think they’re going to stay. It’s not their fault, it’s their dance teachers and I am so glad we got Justin.

The last group performed well but I still think we gave the best performance, and after the last group ended their dance everyone were called on stage and we all stood separately, but side by side with our group members.
“group D. Move forward” one of the female judge with the meanest face said and the first group moved forward.
“you guys were wonderful, but I’ll take back my “ful” cause you guys weren’t completely wonderful, you with the tiny waist, your body’s flexible but doesn’t go with your voice while you dance, and you with the gloves, your voice is amazing and so is your dance steps but you don’t have confidence in you and that sucks. You, the only boy in the group, you’re the worst, whatever vibe the group had you ruined it with your frozen body and trembling voice, you suck!” the judge said minding her foul words and everyone gasped.
“and lastly you, you did just perfect, so you and you, you’re out and you and you are in” the female judge said and everyone watched as the girl with the tiny waist and the boy with the frozen body walked down the stage sadly, leaving the two girls to feel happy for themselves.
“group A. Move forward” the room echoed with that and my heart skipped a beat as we moved forward.
The woman sighed and shook her head negatively while Grace starts to tremble.
“you’re all wonderful, and I’m leaving my ful thus time”.
“you with the blonde hair” the woman said to Cassie “you’re not so good with dancing but you have a nice voice and you keep up and there’s so much confidence in you and that’s the first thing a super star needs, confidence! So congratulations dear, you made it” the woman smiled and Cassie gasped and covered her mouth giving the woman a small bow.
She made it.
“you” the woman said to Travis and he kind of flinched, “your voice isn’t that great, but I’ll put it in the list of okay, but the way your body moves with the beat, made me wish I was teenager and you carry this catchy aura that makes someone smile seeing you dance, you were wonderFUL young man and I’m not taking my ful this time, congratulations!” the woman said and Travis smiled giving a small bow.
“and you” dang it! it’s my turn, can she stop referring to us as “YOU” it’s scary.
“you have a nice voice and a flexible body, you’re full with passion and you smile while you dance, and just everything a super star needs, congratulation” the woman said and I smiled happily and gave her a bow.
I made it!!!! I screamed happily in me,
I cannot believe I did it.
“and you!” the woman said to Grace and she held her breath, holding my hand.
“you were not so good, but honey people like you who are not-so-good are the best and I mean it, there’s a part where the dance part became harder and the song note became higher, I thought you’d be a vibe killer and destroy your group by singing that part badly and dancing stupidly, but sweetie you blew my mind when you dance and drew the song like it was nothing, your singing talent Is to die for, so dear congratulation!” the woman said and grace screamed before giving an apologetic and thankful bow.
“we all did it” Travis said as we all walked to the back stage
“yeah, I cannot believe it” I said and he laughed.
“me too, I was so scared I almost peed on stage” Grace said and we all laughed.
.
The third group only the boy made it and the last group, three of them made it, making us a complete ten.
We were giving speeches on how and where our next performance will be taking place, and this time around they’re going to be just four winners and that was sad cause anyways one or two of us are going to make it and the rest is going to loose. I wish we could all make it but it’s not possible…
*.
That day after sharing happiness with my groupies I made my journey home, inside the bus I listened carefully to the bus radio as the broadcaster talked about out certain things and then moved to celebrities.
«“and now with this news coming live, DH industry. One of the biggest music entertainment in Mahnline, announced a new star’s debut, who goes by the name Erick-J, Erick-J debut was released at 6:00am today, ten hours ago and grossing 8million views in just ten hours and that is mind blowing cause it is the fas—
I smiled as I got down the bus, look at Erick being adored, and he wanted to throw all that away.
I got home and I met my grandma eating dinner with Augie and I happily joined them, I told my grandma about the competition and how everything went and she happily listened as I spilled the whole story to her.
*
It was nighttime and I just finished doing the dishes about to go to my room to take a long lasting nap, when a soft knock landed on the door, I yawned softly and walked to the door, wondering who it could be.
I opened the door and he smiled showing his complete white teeth.
“what are you doing here?” I said can’t help my smile
“are you gonna let me in or ask me more questions till I freeze out here and die” Erick said and I rolled my eyes and opened the door wider for him to walk in but instead he hugged me.

~•~ “June” ~•~
“h-ow is this possible..” Cassie breathed out and I rolled my eyes.
I don’t know if she’s saying that because she’s surprised that I’m dating Erick (which I’m not) and he’s going to be super star. Or she’s surprised that a girl like me is dating Erick. (which I’m not)
“June, I didn’t know Erick sings” Travis said as I held my bottled water close to my chest.
“he does and I sang his song in our last performance” I said and Travis and Grace nodded.
“okay this is mad. I really want to ask you a lot of questions Now June” grace said biting her lip.
Please don’t.
“yeah me too” Cassie primped… I wanted to pretend to have a sudden phone call but thankfully my phone ringed and bless who ever called.
Erick’s name was on the screen and I sighed. This is not the perfect time for him to call me, but I kind of appreciate it since it’ll be my getaway.
“hey… Hi..” I stutter as I said into the phone, cause everyone’s eyes are on me and I don’t know why they’re all staring at me that way.
“is it Erick?” Grace mouthed to me lowly. I tried to shake my head negatively, but I’ll be lying to her so instead I just nod positively but hesitantly.
“hello?” a familiar voice said, but not the voice I was expecting hear.
“Erick will be here any Second now, I can’t believe he called you and left his phone”. The voice complained and my brows arched.
“Daniel?” I asked making Cassie and Grace gasped.
It’s “their” Daniel, but don’t tell me their heads have gone to me calling Daniel already just because Erick’s going to be a celebrity.
“has she picked yet?” I heard Erick’s voice from afar and I breathed out a sigh.
“oh you mean I should come outside?” I said as everyone’s eyes pierced at my ear and mouth.
“I didn’t say that” Daniel said and I suddenly hurried to the door, if only he knew that word was my escape plan. I gave them all an apologetic look before walking out.
I walked into the hallway and I breathed out a sigh of relief, Erick the phone from Daniel and we both started to talk…
We both talked as I walked into the elevator, as I got to the first floor, as I walked out of DH and as I head to the bus stop. I had to end the call as I got into the bus and I smiled as I looked at the window and at everything moved back slowly then with full speed,
It’s a good thing Erick called, it was nice to hear his voice for once it’s been ages and he’s been feeding me stories of making his music video and then who started to ask about how I am and how my competition is going.
I got home that hot afternoon and after taking a shower, I had lunch with my grandma and Ella Who was jumping and barking at the door. telling her about the competition and why I had to come home early, I then moved on to Erick’s debut and she smiled about it and praised Erick about his God’s gift talent. even though she smiled and praised Erick she still seemed a little lackadaisical about the story.

I landed softly on my bed feeling a little tired, but not so much since lunch covered a bit of my tiredness, which isn’t tiredness but hunger, I stretched a bit on the bed and immediately I yawned and started to feel sleepy, not holding back the darling feeling, I turned go Augie’s bed to look at his sleeping body before I closed my eyes and fell asleep.
*.
I suddenly woke up with shock when I felt a heavy painful weight on my body, I breathed out a sigh when I saw Augie on my body.
“what’s this?” I asked as he quickly jumped down from my bed. “so you woke up from your own slumber and the living room couldn’t contain your play date with Ella so you decided to play on me” I said dryly sitting up.
“I’m sorry, Ella was chasing me and I didn’t have anywhere to run so I accidentally jumped on your bed, I thought you weren’t there” he said giving me that sheer look.
“wow, how have I become so transparent, and I don’t know why you’re being so rough these days, is it because of Ella?” I asked with an angry glare.
“cause if it’s because of her then I won’t hesitate to take her back to Erick, cause you’re not the Augie I once knew” I added and he suddenly start to shed tears.
“I’m sorry”.
“do not cry in front of me, do not cry in front of me when you know you’ve done something very offensive cause I won’t fall for your trick this time Augie, what if you killed me! Cause you know I was asleep and you suddenly pounced on me in… my sleep, what if I died huh? Tell me!” I asked breathlessly and he gave me a look, he tried to say something but he stopped himself, suddenly the door opened and my grandma walked in.
“what’s going on?” she asked and I had to explain the whole thing for her.
“Augie when did you become so rough?” my grandma asked Augie who suddenly cleaned his tears .
“I said I was sorry and I didn’t mean to”. Augie said finding his voice.
“you know that was dangerous, she was asleep and goodness what if something happened to her Augie?” grandma sighed and Augie suddenly rushed to give her a hug. He knows hugging grandma will get him on her side.
“June, you have to know he’s just a boy and you shouldn’t yell so much at him”.
“are you serious with me grandma? He’s turning to a complete brat and you still don’t want me to yell at him!” I said and my grandma smiled.
“it’s okay June don’t get too angry, anyways I just came in here to tell you about dinner” my grandma said, tapped Augie’s back and walked out.
“don’t kill me Augie, I still have a dream I haven’t accomplished yet” I sighed before walking out.
We all had a quiet dinner before I went back to my room to have some peace and quiet. I’ve gotten enough rest for today and now I feel like I can move a mountain, how I can’t wait for tomorrow.
Listening to Erick’s song and thinking about him I fell asleep again.
*.
The next morning I woke up feeling a little nervous, the competition is today and well I’m nervous.. So nervous.
Augie was still asleep when I got ready to leave and having just a slice of bread and butter, pushing it down with tea. I found myself on the streets heading to the bus stop.
The day was dull and sombre and before I knew it thick grey clouds blanketed the sky and I was thankful I got into the bus before the rain starts to fall.
The bus was noisy and everyone focused on their phones talking about music, and I suddenly gasped loudly, Daniel’s comeback and Erick’s debut are going to be released today.
Is out yet? Is that what everyone’s so busy with? I thought. I brought out my phone but dropped it back when I realised I can’t do anything to have me distracted from this competition.
I got down the bus and I had run to get into DH to avoid getting wet but still I got a little wet.
DH seemed unusually busy and I saw moved to the elevator I bumped into so many people before spotting Travis and grace getting into the last elevator, I made sure I hurried up to them and we all walked into the elevator.
“when did you get here?” grace asked.
“just now, where are we going?” I asked.
“6th floor, that’s where the competition is taking place”. Grace rushed her words.
“and June” Grace grinned at me.
“what?” I asked while Travis rolled his eyes.
“your boyfriend’s amazing, he his God’s gift to us all, his music video was a blast and his voice, God his voice was marvellous, I cried and watched it three times on YouTube before downloading it to my phone” Grace said with a sigh
“I thought you and Cassie were looking forward to Daniel’s comeback”. Travis said.
“well June’s our friend so we have to see if her boyfriend’s talented and oh God of Daniel please forgive me for saying this, but I think Erick’s more— talented” Grace said and dramatically covered her mouth like she has said a bad thing.
“you’re funny” Travis laughed
“but I can’t betray Daniel, he’s my king, the king of pop music actually and I’ll make sure I watch his video before the competition, he’s like a medicine that ease your pain and his smile can make you forget about your worries and stress—
Grace stopped talking when the elevator door stopped and opened. The three of us walked out letting the four tall ladies walk into the lift with different dresses in their hands.

“I think, this is the room we were told to come” Travis said, opened the door and we all walked in, each group stood together talking to each other, the stage looked more fancier and it had spotlights on each angle of the stage.
Suddenly a woman in casual clothes and a small head microphone walked up to the stage with a sheet of paper in her hand.
“I want everyone’s attention”. The woman said and everywhere went silent.
“thank you” the woman breathed out. “group D, the first group you’re the first to perform and your changing room is that way”. The woman said pointing to a door.
And everyone starts to murmur
“what changing room?” Travis asked, and that same question was asked around.
“you guys weren’t told? For this level of performance, you’re not supposed to perform with your clothes, but the industries, DH is giving you all free wardrobes and makeover for just this performance an–
Everyone screamed in excitement and the woman rolled her eyes.
“and group, D, that’s your changing room, group A, that’s yours” the woman said and pointed to a door at her left and we all turned to look at it.
“group N, that’s yours and group Z, that’s yours” the woman said and showed them to their changing room.
“you can all start changing and you all have just an hour to get dressed” the woman said and ran down the stage.
“where is Cassie for Christ’s sake” Grace asked looking around and suddenly Cassie stormed in, she sighted us and started walking up to us.
“finally you’re here” Grace said
“sorry I woke up late” Cassie said as she followed us to the changing room.
“where are we going?” she asked.
“our changing room, we are going to be given free wardrobes and makeover for today’s performance” Grace explained and Cassie gasped.
“are you serious?” she asked and Grace nodded.
We got into the changing room which has purple dark paintings. mirrors surrounded the wall and has two white drawers and chairs behind every drawers.
“wow” Cassie said as she opened a drawer, “this is amazing” she said sitting down to explore whatever she saw inside the drawer.
Four middle aged woman walked in wearing all black and with a smile one of them said.
“we are all here to get your ready, we’re the stylist and they’re the make up artist” the woman said and gestured her hand showing us the make over artists and the stylist.
Few minutes later we were all glued to the chair in front of each drawer and stared at the morrow, watching what the women did for us.
Cassie and Travis had already got their hair done so the stylist switched places with the make over artists, as Cassie and Travis got their make up done Grace and I got out hair done.
My straight hair was weaved a little at my left side and the rest was curled into dark bouncy waves.
I peeped at Grace and her brown curly hair was made into more curly curls and the front was stylishly weaved to her side.
“oh you look pretty” The woman who made my hair said and I smiled “thanks.”
“I totally forgot Cassie, have you watched Erick’s debut music video?” grace asked looking at Cassie’s reflection in her mirror.
“no!” Cassie replied plainly.
“what about Daniel? Did you watched his?” Cassie asked.
“no” Grace replied.
“what?. Then you’re seriously missing, his comeback this time around was mind blowing and goodness he melted my heart with this song and even though I haven’t watched Erick’s.. I don’t think his would be up to Daniel’s comeback” Cassie cranky voice filled the whole room and I sighed.
“well… I haven’t watched Daniel’s comeback, but now I love Erick’s music video” Grace said and the woman making her hair smile.
“ugh, I don’t know how Erick’s music video like but whatever I will go check it out” Cassie said, grabbed her phone and after tapping for a while she screamed.
“1.4million views in just four hours!!”.
“my re-watching did really pay off” Grace laughed.
“well I’m about to find out how ‘talented’ Erick is” Cassie said and did air quote around talented.
“he’s not only talented but handsome and gosh his new blue hair really suits him, he’s amazing and I love him… No offense June” grace said and I shrugged.
And Erick’s gone blue.
“can you just shut up and let me watch please?” Cassie yelled, she’s through with her makeover so she can yell and move whichever way she likes.
“sorry” Grace apologized lowly
“can you for once try to be nice in your life” Travis voice echoed but Cassie ignored him and played the video.
She was the one watching the video but the song could be heard around the whole room and at the chorus Grace sang along but she was told to stop moving and singing cause she is getting her own makeover and so was I.
The song ended and Cassie played it again.
“he is talented” Cassie said as Grace laughed lightly
“told Ya” Grace said happily and the lady giving her a makeover gave her a look that made her to apologize.

“goodness, Erick is some competition” Cassie said as she dropped her phone.
“yeah” Grace agreed.
“but Daniel’s song is still way ahead of Erick’s, he’s gotten 4million views already” Cassie primped.
“you cannot compare Daniel and Erick, Cassie. Daniel’s a world super star and Erick’s just an upcoming super star in Mahnline” Grace explained, and breathed a sigh of relief when her makeup was done, and immediately mine was done too.
The four ladies stood together and the same person who introduced them said; “we’re done and lastly were going to get your clothes” she said and they all walked out.
We all had the chance to turn and take a good look at each other, Cassie looked beautiful even though her hairstyle is still the same, Travis looked like a prince,his brown hair was gelled all back and because of the gel, it made his hair looked more darker and his voice looked good with the light makeup and he looked breath taking.
“wow” he said to me and then turned to Grace.
“I don’t know if it’s still June or Grace cause you guys looks so different right now” Travis said and grace and I shared a flushed laugh
“you look so different too” I said and Travis rolled his eyes.
“different in a bad way”.
“no” I said and he shrugged.
“aren’t you seeing me?” Cassie asked primping along
“you look good too” Travis said with a small smile and Cassie prissily looked away.
“so.. I want to ask you this question June” Grace said and I turned to her.
“have you met Daniel before?” she asked.
Seriously?.
“yeah” I said calmly.
“like in real life, face to face?” she asked again looking very pretty as she bat her straightened lashes .
“yeah” I replied.
“how did he smell like?” Cassie suddenly Turned to me and Travis brows arched, “I’ve seen him like once of twice here in DH but I haven’t really got close to him to smell him” Cassie said and we all looked at her worldly.
“he smells normal” I breathed out.
“Aww c’mon and stop pretending June, you’ve mu–
Cassie was interrupted by the clicking of the door and we all turned to the door.
“oh our dresses must be here!” Grace said happily.
But well to her disappointment, I wouldn’t say to her disappointment but to everyone’s astonishment, like rays of sunlight Erick and Daniel came shining through the door and I noticed the way Cassie’s breath seized.
