I looked quietly in Obi’s face before saying anything…gosh,is he human?
finally I found myself speaking .
“Obi,I guess your amulet and royal neck valuable to you– I paused.
my whole system shivered when my eyes met with those charming eyes of his..
“well obi,I just came to tell you that some people out there are after you and your valuables…most importantly they won’t stop till they see you falling”I said.I felt relieved telling him this…
He breathed out and quietly turn his face to the other side cutely.
“what is your main motive of telling me this Emeka,knowing fully well that your brother and I are competitors….
shouldn’t you also be among the people looking for my downfall”he said,smartly.His ringed fingers slowly went for the steering.
I smiled.”am not an enemy,I just want to be a friend,friend”.
hope am convincing again.
“umm obi can we get a drink together?”I asked.
“alright,you can fix a date for the drink”he said.We exchanged cards and I left afterwards.
I breathed out….step one has just been carried out successfully.
I beamed like a good dream.Going over there is like a dream coming true and I regret myself for pushing diamonds away and chasing after stones.
imagine. where was my senses then?
my phone rang,I checked the screen, it was Kelvin.I hissed and cut the call why are you calling me now??
you made me changed towards obi now what exactly are you calling me for?? the phone rang again and I had no other choice than to pick it.
“kelvin…don’t call me,am done here” I dropped the call.
the research manager I hired came in with some files neatly arranged.
“tell me”I said and poured juice in my glass…
“Just found out that Obi is amadioha’s apparent heir…”
I covered my mouth when the research manager spoke.
don’t tell me obi owns this land I stand on–
I managed a smile,she rushed out..
Finally,am going back to make amend.I know I make mistakes but only obi knows how to handle a woman so manly out of the men have met.
“the car is ready”a maid came in..
I moved out with my bag and got into the car straightaway to royal institute.
I stepped out and met the school press already.This place is really huge.
🎤 waoow.Angelina Stardford!!
🎤 now that we have you here,its a pleasure but are you going to be a competitor to our dear Ujunwa…
“competitor…Your dear ujunwa is not close to my competitor,she’s low” I answered with pride.
🎤 Now you’re here…surely going to compete for this years Mrs royal, what’s your assurance of beating queen ujunwa on this”..
“well,my assurance is 100%… have beaten Ujunwa twice at nationals and am back to beat her in completion here in front of her people…..soo bye” I said and walked out in the school press with my two maids,one was handling my box containing my files while the other took my bag.
I smiled when I saw obi’s picture on the first page of the school magazine
hmmm…ujunwa you’re not even close to me in terms of beauty.
jeeez I still don’t get why I feel so happy.Have been smiling since midnight when granny told me am going to move in with Obi so as to relieve school stress.
going to royal institute from here is really stressful.Now,I will be moving in with Obi.
seriously what am I thinking..
staying with Obi,same house I mean his house,main house and not spark mansion..
isn’t that worth being happy for…
chaiii am lucky. I just pray I get to get full concentration in my studies…
“cheta what are you doing again…the car is waiting oooo”I heard granny’s voice..
I breathed out and carefully place my laptop in my bag.
granny came in and was surprised to see a box.
“hiaa,what are you packing since? are you packing the whole world”she said..
“no need to pack all my clothes, I already got a little box fixed”I told her
“will that be enough–
she suddenly dragged out a big box and emptied all the contents in my wardrobe into it.
I chuckled…she’s pushing me to Obi now,what type of dramatic grandmother do I have.
“now you’re good to go”she said.
“but am not going to a husband’s house” I chuckled and dragged the bag out.
the guard was in our sitting room already. He smiled and rushed to the bag I was dragging immediately..
“good morning madam”he told me when we finally moved in the car.
Rita should better come visiting on Saturdays else am going to miss her scatter.
I fastened my seatbealt and smiled when the driver took off..
soon we arrived in a different estate.
I was awed…a big waow escaped my mind.
how many houses does obi have?.
the car pulled into a halt in front of the first mansion.
“is this obi’s main house?”I asked the driver.
“yes”he answered.Jeeezz this is really huge.
I will be staying alone in this neat mansion with obi not even as a maid but as a girlfriend.
how will I cope?.
the driver stepped out and like ten maids in neat uniform rushed out in a roll.I watched them took my luggage in one after the other.
I watched in full bewilderedment.
jeeez I really can’t wait.
the drive back to school was quiet.
soon we arrived.
“have a nice day madam,I will be here waiting for you when you’re ready to leave”he said.
I nodded and swallowed into nothing.
I walked into the compound fully,
a set of princesses catwalked by my right soo dreamingly, they all wore attires so color blocking.
I looked down at my uniform and smiled.I wished I was a princess to so that I won’t be wearing uniform and uniform days.
finally when I thought I will be left out,I came across students who wore the same uniforms like I did.
where are my friends??
I turned,no one.
I sighed and followed the other students.We walked past the class notice board..a lot of students were there checking out their results.
I was also checking with my eyes, although I wasn’t close enough.
the students quickly cleared the road immediately and approaching footstep was heard.
I don’t know who was coming but I also moved out of the way.
The people turned out to be princess Ujunwa and her crews.
her dress sense…..she dress so wild.
the students cheered her name in hails.
🚺 waoow…that cloth worth 6million. hair checked,shoe checked….
uju just kill me already-
I heard murmurs.
she didn’t look at anyone,not even a wave despite how she’s being cheered.
is she this inhuman-
her pride is her worst mistake.
Being a school queen entails so many things some if not all is Love and that’s the greatest,the charisma of being a queen and loyal leader is love,yes the feeling of goodness and kindness towards one another.
but all this,ujunwa lacked it towards her people.
she’s failing in her duty as a school queen,how will she pass when she becomes the queen of a nation?.
Ujunwa still walked in front,as she did that,the securities informed we the non royal students to clear road.
“the school queen wants to check her result,you will check yours when she’s done”the security said
“we were here before her…this is unfair ooo the royals cheat we the non royal students in so many ways” a fat girl said.
“are you high,you want to check results with me—
“but uju,we came here before–
“omg! she just called my name,guards did you hear that. Comoners don’t call my name,its bad luck”Uju said.
“I think she wants to be evicted” Amaka said from behind uju. The fat girls face dropped.
“we have a tradition right”ifeoma said
“yes we do…” uju replied and collected the marker.
phones quickly went up.
Ujunwa boldly wrote
Beware of commoners
dirt lucks around royal high
all her creews laughed.I pitied the fat girl.
“stop please…stop stop!!the girl said.
Just then uju tried painting her school shirt but the girl held her hand with tears in her eyes.
“my mum really suffered to buy me this uniform”the girl said.
I couldn’t hold watching the bullying scene,I shift my face away.
“she doesn’t know I can withdraw her admission,hey don’t you know my father owns this school”said uju.
Just then the fat girl withdrew her hand and uju marked her.
she even had to paint the girls face then she dropped the marker and a maid sterilized her hand.
uju walked out. I felt pity for the bullied girl.
but come to think of it,who exactly made uju the school queen?.
I minded my business.
Margaret tapped me from behind.. I hugged her,I really miss her.
the other students made her move to the front…waow feels good to be a celebrity friend,now I can see the board clearly.
🚺 ohhh I wish the spark boys will come to school to check results.
🚺 I swear we won’t make way if we see obi,we will all hug him.
🚺 omg! did you see Angelina..
I heard.I didn’t turn neither did I look, I was busy looking for my results.
ohhh there it is..I smiled.
waaaaat Zero moved in a line.
the spark boys scored zero out of 100.
I looked up again but I didn’t see my results.
“Margaret my result is not here”I said
“whaaaattt…umm let’s just leave to the announcement hall,we will check later”she said.
we both walked out to the huge hall.
it was already crowded so we moved to the back.
although I couldn’t really see the front.
Mrs ekins walked in,there was silence.
more students trooped in.
“as you all know that the result of the best student in exams is not shown publicly”.
“the best student with a total of 100 out of 100 in all courses is no one else but….
All the students started clapping.
the clap got soundedly.
“CHETACHI OKEKE!!….chetachi okeke come forward for your results*she said.
I got goosebumps all over.only me, just me out of 1000+ students.
“give it all for the first female student to win “greatness” award…
Mrs Ekins said.
Everyone clapped as I moved forward I feel sooo nervous,you know all eyes moved with me.
I took my results,Mrs Ekins hugged me.I smiled.
hadn’t I make history.
the meanest proffesor just hugged me….
The agencies wore me the school sash boldly written on it was “Mrs greatness”.
chaiiiii…..is this a dream! someone please pour me water.
its really reality.
many lights flashed on me,I smiled broadly.
“congrats on being the school president as well”Mrs ekins said.
I smiled broadly when she presented my award.
the claps increased.
I hugged my award.
🚺 congrats cheta
I rushed over to hug Margarete.
“honey,you deserve it….the candles you burnt wasn’t in vain alas”she said.
I smiled as I and Margaret walked out.I looked back,I still heard congrats.I smiled.
I feel so happy.
now I am the school president,I will soon get there.
A set of girls walked past Margaret and I.I turned slightly.
“those girls are they students??” I asked,she covered my mouth.
“ummm you were loud..that’s Angelina be careful wherever she is” she said.
Angelina?? Angelina?? why do I feel like have seen her before…even the name sounds familiar.
I walked to the dean and collected my list of activities from her.
then I attend lectures.
I checked my time table..I was free for the day so I returned to the car. It took me back to Obi’s main house.
it was evening already.
I called home and informed granny happily about my award winning. I even sent her pictures.
she suddenly changed topic. “how is Obi…has he seen you already” she said.I dropped my phone and looked at the screen.
“are you not a funny woman already” I said..
“bye my daughter”she smiled.
I ended the call and entered the house fully. I looked around speechlessly..
over beautifulness is worrying this house.oooo.
the base was slivery built.
“welcome ma’am…have arranged your room”a maid suddenly showed up.I follower her behind.
there were 6 suite rooms in a roll.
the first door has a thick bluish glass from up.waoow.
the maid opened the second room door,I followed quietly.The room was ten times my room at home.
“You should use the shower,I will be back to keep you company”she said.
“but can you call me Cheta…madam makes me look old”I said.
“well– she smiled and rushed out.
I dropped my bag and brought out my award. I smiled at it and found a suitable place to keep it.
I used the shower and wore the type of outfit I used to whenever am alone.
A bumber shot and a singlet then I tier a bonnet on my hair.
since there is no boy around,I walked round the penthouse,it was so romantic.everywhere was beautiful the pool had two colors the white part and blue part.
I wondered why there was a stair inside the pool,the stair demarcated the blue side from the white side.
red roses floated on the water beautifully.This is really pretty.
I came across a golden statues… waow Obi has his statue is his house
there was also a fountain man. it was beautiful.There was a button on the hand which says touch me…
I touched it..it poured me water in all direction.
“that water has chemicals–
I rushed out immediately, I was thoroughly soaked.
the maid came to me.
“the water has chemicals,you need to quickly bath!! chemical”she shouted.
jeezzz I rushed in.
my sight was already reducing.
Either way I entered a suite and rushed to the bathroom where I quickly took off my clothes.
I washed my face and body thoroughly with water.
“once water touches it it will go”
I smiled and washed my self with more water…
“darman…I paid 20million plus, Kelly paid the rest–”
I suddenly heard footsteps coming.
coming to where???
hold on isn’t that Obi–
my eyes search around for the towel but then……..

Jesus! This girl is bad.
Even after all the warning signs I gave her, she still went ahead to tell me.
“Really Xavier?” Mom asked and hastily moved towards me, before I could move away, her hand were already firmly on my ear.
She pulled me by the ear while I winced.
“Mom? It hurts!” I whined.
“What did I tell you about Delaney before going to school?” She asked, with a- stern-like voice.
“That I should take care of her.” I grumbled.
“And did you?” She asked.
I kept shut and tried to freed her grip on my ear but she twisted it painfully.
“Ouch!” I groaned.
“Answer me Xavier!” She ordered.
“I didn’t. Jeez mom, my ear hurts already.” I groaned.
“Seriously? You’re so stubborn.” She said and rolled her eyes.
“Delaney, go up and freshen up. I’ll come meet you shortly.” Mom said, still twisting my ear.
“Okay ma’am.” She giggled lightly.
Mom smiled lightly and pulled me by my ear and walked towards the stairs.
I glared at Delaney while she stared blankly at me.
I got back from school and I was damn tired.
I went to my room and had a quick shower.
I wore my clothes and went down to the kitchen.
I opened the pots and I was damned when I didn’t even find a leftover.
“Dang it!” I cussed angrily.
Mom and grandma weren’t home and they didn’t even bother to even leave if it’s just a leftover for me.
My stomach grumbled noisily, reminding me that I’ve got to feed it.
Having no other option, I drank a lot of water and dragged my tired and hungry self back to my room.
As I laid on the bed, my room door suddenly creaked opened and mom walked in.
“Hey Alicia, you’re back.” She said the obvious.
“Well, as you can see.” I rolled my eyes and turned to another direction.
Well, get your butt of the bed and wear something nice. We’re going out.” She said.
I snapped my head to look at her and sat on my bed.
“What’s the occasion mom? What are we celebrating?” I asked with a smile.
“Nothing special. Let’s just say I got a new job with a good pay.” She shrugged.
“Oh mom! That’s good news.” I smiled.
“Alright, so hurry up before I change my mind.” She said and walked out of my room.
“Yes!” I smiled elatedly.
I got down from my bed and hurriedly got to my wardrobe, looking for something nice to wear.
I wonder where we’re going to.
I got into the house and as usual, I was expecting to see an empty house apart from the maids, but I was damn so shocked to see my both parent seating on the sofa and watching TV.
“Mom? Dad?” I called surprisingly and walked up to them.
“Hey princess.” Mom beamed and walked to hug me.
I let her hug me but I was still so shocked to find them both at home.
“Welcome princess.” Dad smiled lightly.
“What the… What happened? Why are you guys home? I thought you were supposed to be home by the end of the month.
But you’re home now.” I voiced out, still finding it hard to believe that my parent were both home.
Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t unhappy to see my parent but it’s a shocker to see them.
Anytime my parent are about leaving and give me a particular date they’d be home, they’ll never fulfill their promise.
They’ll always have an excuse to extend their stay.
But this time around today, they are home, more earlier than I imagined.
“We just decided to surprise you.” Mom beamed happily.
“Really? Surprise indeed.” I said nonchalantly, like I didn’t care but I do care.
“So, princess, freshen up and get dressed. We’re going out.” Dad smiled.
“What? We’re going out!” I half yelled happily, not believing my ears.
“Yes dear.” Mom said.
“Hope this isn’t a joke?” I asked sternly.
“Of course not.” Dad said and smiled.
I got dressed and my parent and I got into one of the cars; a red Bugatti Veyron.
I smiled and watched the view happily as the chaffeur drove off.
I admired the beautiful tall skyscrapers and other beautiful buildings.
Not as if I fancy them or something but for the fact that I was happy made me gaze admiringly at them.
The chaffeur finally pulled over in front of a classic restaurant and we alighted.
I removed my sunshade glasses and walked elegantly with my parent into the restaurant.
I chatted with my parent as we ate on our meal.
If felt so good to finally seat, eat and talk calmly with them, without me getting angry like I would do when I’m being told about their departure again.
After we were done eating and drinking, I decided we dropped by at the Mall to get some stuffs I needed.
Mum and dad were still in the car and I stepped out before then, headed for the entrance. But unfortunately, a clumsy lady bumped into me.
“Hey! Are you blind??” I snapped at her.
“Seriously?” She scoffed.
That face! She looked really familiar.
“You????” We both exclaimed at the same time.
“What the f**k are you doing here? And why’re you always being so clumsy?!” She snapped at me, making me shocked.
She was the same filthy lady my driver had splashed mud water on.
“Seriously?? I think I should be asking you that damn question. What’re you doing here? We actually don’t need low lives in the mall” I scoffed.
“Listen to me, you little brat” she pointed her finger at me.
“I’m not gonna take any more insults from you, okay?”
“Alicia!” A young woman came calling after her.
“Hey! Alicia; what’s wrong? What’s going on, huh?” She asked and held the lady’s hand.
So, Alicia’s her name?
“I unfortunately bumped into an animal, mum” the Alicia girl replied and my eyes widened in shock.
What the heck???
Did she just call me animal??
Immediately, mum and dad showed up.
“Hey! Chelsea, what’s going on?” Mum asked as she stood beside me with dad.
I kept throwing glares at the puppies in front of me.
But then, I noticed something – the young woman was fixing her eyes on dad.
And dad….he was staring back at her as well.
“Clarissa??” He suddenly called out.
“Jerry?” She called out as well.
Hold on; do they know each other or what???

Wait, isn’t this the girl that I took her strange necklace?
She also attends this school?
And that aside, why’s she with Xavier?
Why did they come in together?
Do they know each other?
Different unanswered questions!
Tch, tch, she better don’t have eyes for my Xavier because he’s mine.
As we stepped into the cafeteria, the cafeteria suddenly became noisy as students screamed happily.
I turned and noticed Xavier had a plain look while Chelsea was clingy to him like a magnet would do to a magnetic object.
She had smiles on her face as she placed her arms around Xavier.
The girls were throwing glances at him and it wasn’t just any glance but I really couldn’t tell the kind of look.
But there seemed to be something special in that look they gave him.
But soon enough, the news died down and the students continued eating.
I shrugged and followed them as they walked towards a strange looking thing that the students sat to eat.
Okay, what’s this?
Why’s everything here looking strange to me?
I don’t want to go about causing another humiliation for myself because of my ignorance. And so, I just decided to ask.
“Uhm, Xavier? What’s this that the students are sitting on?” I asked lowly and tapped him lightly on his shoulder.
He turned and glared at me.
“Dumb head.” He muttered and rolled his eyes.
“That’s a booth.” He grumbled lightly.
“Oh!” I nodded my head.
“Wait! Don’t tell me she’s sitting with us?” Chelsea suddenly grunted with a disdainful look.
“I guess so.” Xavier shrugged nonchalantly.
“Xavier?” She whined.
“She can’t seat with us! I don’t want her to seat with us!” She grumbled angrily.
Xavier didn’t say anything but went ahead to seat down.
As I was about to seat down too, she held me firmly by my arm.
“Hey, you don’t belong here, you know? You’re too dirty to seat with us.
You’re classless and you don’t belong here.
You are not supposed to dine with us.” She snorted disgustfully like I’m a piece of trash or dirt.
“I don’t get you Chelsea.” I said lowly and twitched my lips.
Xavier just sat down and watch us.
“Seriously? Are you that dumb? I don’t want you to seat us.” She hissed angrily.
“But Xavier’s mom said he should take care of me at school because it’s my first time.
If I don’t eat here where then will I eat?” I asked and stared at her crumpled face.
She doesn’t know that she looks the devil’s daughter when she’s angry and having that crumpled look.
“Does he even look like he cares? He’s obviously unconcerned.” She said and smirked.
Before I could say anything, she pushed me hard and before I could even hold anything, I landed hard on the floor with my butt.
Some students turned to our directions and I felt so hurt.
Some students laughed mockingly while my head was bent in shame.
Chelsea crouched in front of me and lifted my chin up.
“I don’t want to see you near my Xavier again. Don’t think because you live with him in his house you should feel like a queen.
You definitely don’t stand any chance with him.” She whispered with a taunting grin.
She stood up and patted my hair, “good girl.” She said with a hint of mockery in her voice.
As I tried to stand up, I felt a strong hand around my waist.
I turned and saw Xavier’s friend, the one that had told me that I look pretty.
He helped me up from the floor. Xavier and him threw angry glare at each other before he held my hands and walked away.
We got to another booth and he gestured for me to seat.
Without any hesitation or reluctancy, I succumbed and sat on the booth.
As I sat on my booth and ate, I suddenly started hearing whisperings from the booth beside mine.
I listened raptly and I got to find out that they were talking about the new student and Chelsea.
Now, only for me to take a look and saw Chelsea bullying Delaney when Xavier is there.
I wasn’t happy seeing Delaney being talked rudely and being bullied by Chelsea.
She has no right whatsover!
Though I use girls, I don’t fancy bullying. In fact, I don’t like it one bit.
Xavier couldn’t even do anything but just seat and watched Chelsea hurt Delaney.
Xavier’s is still blind not to see the mesmirizing beauty of Delaney.
He’s still blind not to notice how beautiful she is.
He shouldn’t worry, until I make her mine before he’ll realise how pretty she is.
I feel I’m attracted towards her and I wouldn’t mind having her myself.
I’m going to make sure I have her and Xavier isn’t gonna stand a chance.
“I’m Rio, in case you don’t know.” Xavier’s friend who helped me, said with a small smile.
“Oh! Okay.” I mouthed lowly.
“So, you are Delaney right?” He asked.
“Yeah.” I smiled lightly.
“Hope you like the meal?” He asked sweetly.
I stared at the food in front of me and stared back at him.
“Yes.” I nodded my head with a smile.
“I’m really grateful Rio.” I said sincerely.
“You’re welcome. And don’t worry about Xavier, he’s always like that; he’s the I- don’t- care type but he’ll definitely come around.
And Chelsea, she behaves bitchy sometimes especially when it comes to Xavier.
So, don’t take her actions toward you to heart.” He told me with a smile.
“It’s no big deal. I don’t really care too.” I shrugged plainly and ate slowly from my meal.
“Alright, eat up. Lunch break is almost over.” He urged and smiled at me.
“Uh! Sure.” I mouthed.
After few other subjects, school was finally over.
It wasn’t too much of fun because the students weren’t nice at all.
They didn’t even want to talk nicely to me.
And the obj… Laptop, I had broken due to my ignorance, was taken away and I was given a new one.
The teacher had taught me how to use it and I was quick to grab the teachings.
For the rest of day, I was able to use the laptop: but not perfectly well. At least, I can open it and turn it on and off.
Chelsea was so clingy to Xavier as we were about going home.
She wanted to come along with us but she said she got things to do in the house.
I was glad because I wouldn’t seat with her in the same car with her throwing angry glare at me at intervals.
She hugged Xavier before going over to her ride.
I got inside the car with Xavier and he didn’t even spare me a side glance.
The drive home was very quiet, with no words said between the two of us.
The quietness was so uncomfortable and I couldn’t wait to go home.
We got home and I was the first to alight.
He alighted too and he surprised me by suddenly gripping my arm, pulling me to an abrupt stop.
“Don’t tell mom about what happened at the cafeteria okay?” Xavier warned sternly.
I yanked my hand away from his grip and stared blankly at him.
“That’s for me to decide.” I snorted and walked into the house.
“Delaney!” His mom screamed happily and ran to meet me at the door.
I smiled lightly at her and went into her open arms.
“How was school today? Do you like the school? Were the students nice to you?
Did the things in the school fascinate you?” She asked all at once, not even giving me the chance to say anything.
“Which one am I supposed to answer?” I laughed lightly.
“Oh! My bad! Sorry, I guess I was too elated. So, how was school today?” She asked with a smile.
“It was fine.” I smiled lightly.
“We’ll talk about the school later, so tell me, how was Xavier to you today?” She asked eagerly.
I turned and caught Xavier giving me a warning sign not to say anything.
“Well…” I was suddenly saying when Xavier suddenly interrupted and walked up to meet us.
“Really mom? Have I become invisible that you couldn’t even welcome me?” He scoffed.
“That will wait. Not until Delaney tells me something nice about what you did to school today.” She chuckled lightly, like a young school girl.
“Seriously mom.” He huffed and glared at me.
“So Delaney, tell me. How was Xavier at school today toward you?” She asked.
“Well, he wasn’t nice. He made Chelsea bully me.” I pouted sadly.
The woman turned and glared at him and walked to cover the remaining space between Xavier and her but Xavier moved backwards quickly and widen his eyes in shock.
“What? Just kill me already!” Xavier exclaimed disbelievingly.

“What?” The teacher gasped loudly in shock as she stared wide eyed at the object on the floor.
The whole class attention were now on me and they were gawking at me.
Did I do anything wrong?
“Delaney?” The teacher called and took her gaze from the object to stare at me.
“Why did you do that? Why did you smash the laptop?” She asked still shocked.
She walked closer to meet me on my seat and picked up the object.
“What did you call it? Lap… What? Or lap tight?” I asked as I tried to pronounce what she had called the object.
The whole class suddenly bursted into amusing laughter.
Did I say anything funny?
The teacher chuckled and looked at me awkwardly.
“A laptop, I said. Now, why did you smash the laptop?” She asked, this time, sternly.
“Well ma’am, I thought it would open that way. I tried opening it the way I saw others doing but I couldn’t and I thought that by smashing it, it will open.” I said and fondled nervously with the tip of my hair.
“Really? Where exactly are you from? You don’t know how to open a laptop?” She asked.
“No ma’am. I’ve never seen an object like this before.” I said innocently.
“What? Jeez! What on Earth are you?” She gasped shockingly.
“I…” My statement was cut short when Xavier suddenly spoke up.
“Ma’am Teresa, I bet you don’t want to use the whole day talking to her? The time is ticking, tick-tock.” He said and did the his tongue in a way I couldn’t really understand.
The teacher sighed and looked me.
She shook her head sadly and walked back to where she stood in front of the class.
I turned to look at Xavier and he gave me me an hard glare.
I gulped down nothing and looked away.
The teacher taught and seriously, my mind wasn’t there.
The students were using the laptop or whatever, while I just stared at them like they’re performing some sort of magic.
I yawned lightly and stretched out my tired body.
The sunlight illuminated the room and flashed through my face.
I groaned and turned to the other side of the bed.
After what seems like forever, I finally squinted my eyes opened.
I opened my eyes fully and rubbed them sleepily.
I yawned lightly and sat on top of the strange mattress. But it was so comfy and I really enjoyed my night.
The previous day, the woman took me to her house which I found rather too strange to be called a house.
It wasn’t very big but it still was big.
The structure and everything looked totally different from the one back there at Marazona.
In fact, everything here looks so strange and different from that of Marazona’s.
The woman whom I haven’t quite gotten familiar with, made me take my bath under something like a rain, but she called it *shower*.
Jeez! I haven’t seen something like that before.
She taught me how to use it since I couldn’t; I don’t even know how to use it.
She also gave me strange leaves she called *clothes* for me to wear.
I had wrapped them around my body like I used to do to leaves but she had gawked at me and looked weirdly at me.
She had taken the clothes and wore it for me in a strange way too.
She had called me strange but I don’t know between I and her who’s more strange.
Nothing looks familiar to me.
I walked out of the room and followed the same place we had followed yesternight.
Finally, I got to the sitting room and a sweet smell waft through my nose.
I sniffed in the air and suddenly, my stomach grumbled noisily.
I held my stomach to shut it up from growling noisily.
I haven’t eaten since the previous day and I’m hungry.
I look around the sitting room and I was really bedazzled by the beautiful decorations and strange looking things.
I saw a wide and dark mirror which was on top of something. But the mirror still looked strange.
I moved closer to it and stared at myself but it wasn’t clear.
I couldn’t see myself properly. Back at Marazona, the mirror in my room is placed to stand upright and it’s long and plain glass white.
But this one here is something different.
“Hey.” I heard. I turned swiftly and saw the woman coming towards me.
In broad daylight, I could see her clearly now.
She’s a middle aged woman and she’s tall and pretty.
She had her hair rolled up in a messy bun and she had beads of sweat on her forehead.
She had a smile on her face.
“Good morning.” I greeted calmly.
“Morning dear. What are you doing standing there?” She asked.
“Uhm, nothing. I was just staring at myself on the mirror.” I shrugged.
“Huh? Mirror?” She asked and furrowed her eyebrows.
“Yes, mirror.” I nodded my head and pointed at the black mirror.
She chuckled in amusement and stared at me.
“That’s a tv.” She giggled lightly.
“A … Tv… What?” I stuttered, not wanting to bite my tongue because of how difficult the name sounded.
“A tv.” She said slowly.
“What’s that? What’s a tv?” I asked as I stared at her.
“You know what? We have a lot of things to discuss. I don’t even know your name yet.
But first, breakfast is ready. Let’s eat and after that, we’ll talk better.” The woman said and held my hands.
Without any further hesitation, I followed her.
After the teacher had left, the students started stealing glances at me and whisperings amongst themselves and I need not anyone to tell me that they are whisperings are about me.
“Jeez, I can’t believe her! She acted like a girl from the forest or maybe jungle.” I heard one of the students laughed.
“Seriously Jane, I was really so surprised when she smashed the laptop.
She’s pretty but weird.” Another girl said.
I shook my head and ignored them.
They can gossip for all I care.
I had gotten ready for school feeling so enthusiastic.
I had woken up very early because I was restless and anxious.
I couldn’t even sleep well because I kept on tossing and turning on the bed.
I was just so damn anxious and eager to go to school.
When I had gotten, everywhere looked really beautiful and magnificent. It looked better in real than on tv and magazines.
I had squealed happily and stared around bedazzling.
The principal told me he was gonna tell the students about me and the other students that won the scholarship the following day.
When I got to the classroom, my attention was just centered on Xavier.
Oh my! He looked absolutely breathtaking in his uniform.
Oh God! I can’t believe I’m in the same grade as Xavier and I’ll get to see him everyday.
Who knows, I might have the opportunity to even touch him.
A teacher entered the classroom and I was surprised when a very beautiful and classy girl smashed a laptop saying she couldn’t open it.
I was really so surprised.
She looked really classy like someone from a very wealthy home.
But I didn’t get to see her face properly because I was seating behind her at the back.
But from her side view, I could tell she was really pretty.
It was lunch break already, I walked out of the classroom alongside some of the students.
With the school map in my phone, I got to find my way to the cafeteria.
As I sat down on my booth eating, the cafeteria suddenly became noisy and happy squeals broke out from most especially the girls lips.
I tilted my head and saw Xavier walking in with two girls.
He looked like a demi god as he took slow and elegant strides inside the cafeteria.
He had a a sweet in his mouth and his hands were tucked inside his trouser pockets.
He looked really mesmerizing.
But then, I had a proper look at the girls and one of them gripped my attention.
I stared intently at the girl and…
