JUST FOR LOVE (Love, why?) 2 Episode 4 – 5 by Azeemah Salami
“Good!” I murmured as i watched the two fat girls beat Karissa.
How could someone be that mean.
I was having my lunch when my eyes darted to maniac’s table.
I don’t actually know the reason i looked at his at that moment.
I felt so furious when i saw what was going on.
I so much hate bully and mockery,i rushed down to their table and smashed my pie on Karissa’s face before slapping her.
Travis is so lucky that i didn’t give him a share of what he deserved the moment he told me to stop.
He’s a stupid school prefect who watches students get bullied and not do a thing about it.
“Mrs Olive requires your presence,the four of you should come with me” Travis said in a stern tone.
The students walked away from the scene and Karissa stood up from the floor in tears.
“You’re gonna regret this i swear down!” She yelled and barged out of the cafeteria.
The girls followed,then i and Travis,we were all walking to Mrs Oliver’s office.
I slapped Travis hand off my back, stopped walking and glared at him.
“You crazy?” I asked.
“I can make you skip the punishment,it’s up to you to decide” He licked his lips.
“You must be crazy,if you dare lay your filthy hand on me,i swear down.. I’ll beat you up in this hallway” I said and he flinched.
I walked faster to join the rest who were already standing in the front of Mrs Oliver’s office.
“Fighting is prohibited in this school,what was the cause of the fight?” Mrs Oliver asked sternly.
We were in her office standing in front of her desk,Travis sat at a corner watching us, giving me some eye treatment in the process.
“I was eating with my friends,then suddenly this two fat pigs started beating me up” Karissa said.
“You can lie all you want..Mrs Oliver i wanna ask something” i said.
“Go ahead” She said.
“Is bully and mockery legalized in this school?” I asked.
“Of course not” She answered and adjusted her eye glass.
“You two go ahead and tell Mrs Oliver what Karissa has been doing to you both” I said to the girls.
“Karissa has always bullied us since we resumed this school, she’ll ask us to kneel without any reason,hit us and mock us..”
“Really?” Mrs Oliver asked.
“I..it was not intentional” Karissa said.
“Will you shut up” Mrs Oliver barked at her “You know what you were doing is prohibited in this school and you still went ahead to do it,what sort of audacity is that!”
“I’m sorry” Karissa said and shot me a glare.
“we were infuriated and stood up to her today,leave her out of it..she knows nothing” One of the fat girls said and pointed to me.
“Im involved in it,i was actually the one who ordered them to beat her up” I said.
“Yeah…” I said.
“Well…you all went against the law of the school but you’ll be spared because you’re a newbie,when next you try such..you’ll be punished according to the decree..you may leave” She said and i nodded.
“Travis,put this three in detention” Mrs Oliver said.
I sighed and walked out of the office.
I’m glad the two girls taught Karissa a lesson.
They should beat her more in the detention.
I walked towards the class cause it seems the cafeteria light is already off.
I opened the door and stepped in to meet dozens of eyes on me.
They murmured as i made my to my seat.
I sat looking out of the window,i really love looking at this garden and I’m gonna make sure i go there soon.
I unzipped my backpack and brought out my phone to take some pictures of the beautiful garden.
“Phone isn’t allowed in the class” I heard a voice said.
Who else but handsome maniac,he’s the only one sitting beside me.
I don’t need to turn but he deserves a glare.
I turned and glared at him, hissing in the process.
“If only you know how ugly you are when glaring” He said but i wasn’t moved by his words,i know he’s trying to make me talk to him which will not even be in the next life to come.
But damn! He’s the first person that ever say that to me.
Whatever…I took few pictures of the garden and was about dropping my phone when a teacher walked in.
“Hey! Stand up, phones are prohibited in class” He said.
The students turned to me .
I stood up.
“Well…I wasn’t aware of that” I lied.
Maniac told me and i also read it during my research but this garden is too beautiful to be ignored.
“You were not aware? Didn’t you went through the school rules and regulations?” He asked.
“Yeah..i resumed yesterday actually”
“You’ll be pardoned because you’re a newbie but the next time you try such, you’ll be punished” He said.
“And you’re gonna be answering all the questions in class today” He added.
“Fine by me” I shrugged and sat down.
👩👩👦 isn’t she aware that Mr Jones questions are always difficult.
👩👩👦Serves her right.
👩👩👦I can’t wait to see her looking lost.
👩👩👦She’s definitely gonna talk to everyone once she fails to answer the questions.
My face remained stoic as Mr Jones started teaching.
He threw questions at me and i gladly answered.
He asked questions outside the scheme of work and i think i disappointed him by answering everything correctly.
Everyone gazed at me in astonishment…
“That was quite impressive” He said.
“It was totally impressive” A student said and the students chorused in agreement.
None of my concern though…I can’t wait to go home.
This school drama is something else.
“Goodbye class” He said and walked out of the class, after giving me a long look.
👩👩👦 That was impressive.
👩👩👦No new student have been able to answer Mr Jones questions.
👩👩👦You did quite well.
👩👩👦Can you please be my friend,I’ll do anything you want.
I didn’t answer any of them,i placed my head on my desk instead, humming.
I felt like singing aloud but i only do that when I’m at home.
I was told i have a very nice voice and i kinda believe it.
I felt a tap on my shoulder and quickly shrug off the hand in anger.
“Don’t you ever touch me again” i said raising up my head.
I met a girl standing before my table,i recognize her as one of the girls who normally eat with Maniac.
“I’m sorry but i just wanted to update you” She said.
“Aren’t you aware that i want no one to talk to me,no one should come closer to me. I hate it!” I half yelled.
“I’m sorry,but you might not know that there is after class activ….”
“Get away from my table,i know all that already”
I placed my head back on the desk feeling so pissed.
I took my phone and began going through pictures,i stopped at my mum’s.
I quickly wiped the tears that dropped from my eyes.
Mum why aren’t you here with me?
I arranged my books in my backpack and stood up,i hung the backpack over my shoulders and stepped out of my seat.
I noticed other students were not standing up or getting ready to leave.
“I thought you were aware that there is after class activities today?”Maniac said.
I don’t just get the reason he feels so bold to talk to me even after i clearly warned everyone not to speak to me.
He’s gonna back off once i break his head.
I ignored him and started walking out of the class.
They all watched me and i saw some trying to tell me about the after class activities but it seems they heed to my warning.
I should have sat down and wait for after class activities but i don’t want him to get that satisfaction that he made me stay.
I know i can’t leave for home now.
The gatekeeper will definitely not open the gate for me.
I should have just let down my pride and sat down in class.
Damn!…when did i start rethinking my actions.
Com’on Anel, remember you don’t care about anything or anyone.
I got to the school main compound and truly no student is out except me.
The gatekeeper is at his duty post basking in the sun.
I looked around and sighed,why is this school looking boring.
I miss Neltodine high school.
I should tour round the school.
I started by walking to the edge of the school building,i saw a corner which i walked into.
I saw a football field,next is a basketball’s.
I peered into the window of the school’s laboratory and shook my head.
Science isn’t my dream.
I don’t have a dream,cause most of what I’ve thought of involves dealing with people and i don’t want to deal with people.
I rather stay home after im done with school.
I cornered another doorway.
There i saw some beautiful artworks,most of them were placed in transparent glasses,one caught my attention,it’s looking exceptional and beautiful.
It’s a drawing of two students holding one book.
I touched it and smiled,i don’t know the reason I’m smiling but i found myself smiling.
The drawing gave me some indescribable feeling.
I checked the rear for the name of the artist;
Wow,the famous artist that hates popularity.
No one except his manager knows where he lives or works.
Contracts are being handed to his manager,he does not want to be seen.
Though his pictures are everywhere but that’s not like having a direct access to him.
He’s striking handsome…just like the older version of handsome maniac and ..why did i just thought of that dude!
There are rumors that Bryan shaw might be a ghost but i don’t believe it.
He might just be this calm person who cherish his privacy cause once people find out about where he lives then the press will make his house their abode.
I like him even if it’s rare for me to like someone outside my family circle but this man broke the yoke.
Someone like him should be so proud and show up at almost everywhere but this man proved many people wrong, by remaining humble which made me like him more.
If there’s one of the things i like most then it should be ‘humbleness’.
And i think i found that in handsome maniac..
I expected him to be arrogant because of his look but i didn’t notice such in him,he should be the one to be arrogant not that fool called Travis.
I’ll make sure i end up breaking his head one of these days.
I clicked my tongue when i noticed I’ve been standing here for minutes.
I admired other paintings also before walking out of the doorway thinking of where next to head to.
I sighted a short passageway and i stood at the entrance deliberating if to go in or stay back.
I decided to go in,this might be the only chance I’ll get cause after school activities only comes once in a week.
The passageway is short so I got to the end in seconds.
I opened the door and gasped at the sight in front of me.
I held myself from screaming in excitement.
I breathed in fresh air as i stepped on the grass.
A feeling gripped my body but i managed to shrug it off.
Here’s the garden i’ve always seen from the window.
I exclaimed and quickly shifted back looking for my classroom window.
I sighted it from a distance, expecting to see maniac staring at me cause he’s the only one after me that’s closer to the window but it seems he’s not on seat.
I ran stealthily to the window, peeped in and surprisingly none of the students were in class.
They’ve all gone for their After class activities.
I finally let out a scream of excitement, turned and ran round the garden.
It’s so beautiful and wide,the grass is looking well treamed and clean,beautiful flowers popped from different direction.
There were short trees around the metal chairs.
I dropped my backpack and plucked a rose flower before sitting on one of the metal chairs.
I scent it… Wow!
I giggled happily as breeze blew across my face and hair loosening my packed pontsplait.
I left it that way.
Gardens should be counted among the things i love,its just so sad there’s none in my house.
I began singing ‘Stand by me’ by Fallen angels.
I feel happy…
I stood up from the chair and sat my butt on the grass then laid on in with my hands crossed on my stomach.
I giggled and raised my legs high in the hair.
The cool breeze was irresistible and i don’t know how i ended up falling asleep.
“You’re a jerk for stopping me!”
Why do you wanted to do that?” I heard from my sleep, i was forced to open my eyes.
I sat up when i noticed i was still in the garden.
I checked the time on my wrist watch and sighed,time isn’t fast gone like i thought.
“Hey! Why are you here while others are performing their after class activities” I heard a familiar voice said,i tilted my head and saw Travis and handsome maniac standing and why is his lips broken?
None of my business though.
Ohh…they own the voices i heard earlier.
“You’ll be punished for doing that,now come with me” Travis said.
I stood up and dusted my skirt.
I ignored him, picked my backpack and started walking out of the garden but not without plucking some flowers.
My eyes met with maniac’s,i felt like glaring at him but i didn’t.
I wonder what they were both doing here in the first place.
Did they have a fight?
Is that the reason maniac’s lips is broken?
“Come back here” Travis yelled after me.
I finally walked out of the garden.
I sat alone in the living room,munching a donut.
I got back from school some minutes ago..
They’ve all went to the park,i don’t feel like going today..I’m a bit stressed and need to rest, besides i don’t want piercing stares.
The hot chocolate on the donut dripped on my black shorts,i wiped it off with a finger,its just a tiny drop.
I continued eating, watching the uninteresting movie.
I’ll go change it soon.
I just need to finish my donut and ice cream.
I dropped the remaining donut on the flat plate and picked my plate of ice cream..i uncovered it.
I used the spoon to scoop some in my mouth.
Wow… Strawberry flavor is the best!
I was about scooping another when i heard a knock on the door.
Are they back?
They should have their own key. Besides,the door is not locked and they don’t knock before rushing in so it must be the gatekeeper.
What the hell does he want?
I dropped my plate of ice cream,covered it and stood up.
I walked to the door and pulled it open.
“What do y.. Milana!” I screamed and jumped into her open arms.
💞Dan’s POV 💞
I found myself smiling as i scrolled through beautiful psycho’s pictures.
I walked back into the class to pick my sketchbook.
We were about starting our after class activity,when i noticed i wasn’t with my sketchbook.
I joined the art class of course.
I was unzipping my backpack when i heard someone giggle,i ignored it until i heard a melodious voice singing, ‘Stand by me’ by Fallen angels.
It was coming from the garden.
‘Have the musical class moved to the garden?’ I thought and turned.
I shifted closer to the garden and saw the most beautiful female in Makers high school sitting in the garden.
My heart did a double turn as i watched her sing,her long black hair is free of hairband,it flowed along with the breeze.
Not only is she beautiful, she’s intelligent and also have a nice voice.
She’s looking so happy and like i said before.
If she smiles, people are gonna melt internally.
She has never smiled in my presence before except now.
Her smile is so pure and contagious cause i found myself smiling too.
But when next will i see her in this vibe?
I quickly opened my backpack and brought out my phone.
I took several shots of her and stopped,i quickly dodged when she stood up from the chair.
I saw her sat on the grass before laying on it.
She raised up her legs and giggled.
I quickly took that shot,it looked funny and i laughed but quickly silenced myself.
Her hair was sprawled on the grass, lifting gently with the aid of the breeze.
I took two more shots and smiled in satisfaction.
Damn! How could i forget the sketchbook i came to pick,even at that; I don’t wanna stop staring at her but i have to, and it seems she’s also falling asleep.
I turned and walked closer to my backpack.
I dropped my phone back there and picked my sketchbook,i zipped my backpack and decided to take one last look at her before walking out of the class but i was alarmed when i saw Travis walk into the garden.
He got closer to her and smiled,he bent and trailed his hand to her skirt,he was about lifting it up when i stopped him with a shout.
He looked up and saw me,his face grew furious.
I quickly ran out of the class, heading straight to the garden.
What was he trying to open her skirt for?
What an insolent act.
Travis is a bad guy to the core,i won’t allow him mess with psycho.
This isn’t the first time he’s doing such.
I got there and walked towards him,he already stood up.
I watched the sleeping beauty who’s even more beautiful on a closer look.
I glanced back at Travis but was met with a hard punch on my lips,i staggered back and swallowed the little blood that spilled into my mouth.
I know my lips is broken already, that won’t stop it from looking cute though.
I wiped the blood away from my lips with my pullover.
I expected this.
“You’re a jerk for stopping me!” Travis growled.
“Why do you wanted to do that?” I asked.
He tightened his fist and i know i should be ready for another punch but I’m ready to dodge it this time.
But psycho suddenly sat up which made him stop.
“Hey! Why are you here while others are performing their after class activities” He said to her.
She tilted her head and glanced at us.
“You’ll be punished for doing that,now come with me” Travis said.
She stood up and dusted her skirt, ignoring him.
She picked her backpack,plucked some flowers and started walking out of the garden.
Our eyes met and i thought she’ll glare at me but she didn’t.
“Come back here!” Travis yelled after her.
She walked out of the garden and i held my brewing laughter.
She ignored him like he’s nothing..a whole son of a billionaire..haha😂
“Dan…let’s go” I heard Jacq said from the window.
Wow..the after class activities is over,this is my first time of missing it and it’s all because of beautiful psycho but I’m glad i have something to console me.
I glanced at Travis who stood rooted to the spot, looking pained.
I finally let out my laughter before walking out of the garden to meet Jacq.
👅End of flashback👅
“Ouch” I said, holding my back.
I turned and saw Michael laughing,with a big spoon in his hand.
Damn! He actually hit my back with that.
“Mum has been calling you for some minutes,but you were staring at your phone so i thought you needed a spoon lash…” He laughed.
I stood up but he already ran away before i could get hold of him.
💗💔JUST FOR LOVE💗💔
“OMG Milana!” I smiled after we disengaged from the hug,i ushered her in, carrying her box.
“Asanel” She smiled brightly and i felt jealous of her beauty.
I always thought I’m so beautiful but where does my beauty stand beside milana’s.. anyway I’m glad she’s here.
She’s wearing a yellow tank top with black leggings filled with glitters, yellow sneakers and black shoulder bag.
I closed the door and we both walked to the couch.
We sat down.
“I wasn’t aware you were coming” I said.
“Well..yeah,I’m just here to spend few days,mehn! The press already found my residence at Mexico and wouldn’t let me rest,i had to sneak out at midnight with my manager,we lodged in an hotel till this morning,i took the next available flight here” She said tiredly and i quickly passed my melting ice cream to her.
She smiled and took it.
“Wow! So you mean Mum is not also aware of your coming?” I asked.
“Yeah she’s not… i came here for two reasons” She said and scooped some ice cream in her mouth.
“Let me guess” I smiled.
“First, because of the press”
“Yes you got that,and second?” She asked.
“There’s a movie to shoot at Paris” i guessed.
“You got it right” She said and i laughed.
“But seriously,if there was no movie to shoot,you wouldn’t have come?” I asked.
“Hmm…i was planning to come visit you,but you should know how busy i get, going to different countries for film making” She said and i nodded.
“I’ve missed you,i actually thought of you few days back” I said.
“Why didn’t you give me a call?” She asked.
“Like you’ll be the one to pick up,your manager always do that and you know how much i hate talking to people”
“Anel you need to change,that’s not nice” Mil said.
“Let’s not talk about that Mil,so how’s Mexico?” I asked.
“Great as always,but the press there are crazy,just like ants on a lollipop” She said and i laughed.
“So how did you get here without people seeing you?” I asked.
“I was disguised in my sunglass and scarf,some people wanted to take the hint but i was way smarter and i already ordered my Lexus to be brought down to Paris before i got there, so i just took a short walk to where my Lexus is parked.
I dropped my manager in flourish hotel and drove down here” She explained.
“Ohh…i sometimes feel for celebrities cause they just have to hide most of the time” I said.
“Exactly, but it has a lot good sides..”
“Yeah,i sometimes wonder how it’ll feel like to be a celebrity,tell me how you do feel like” I smiled.
“Here goes you and your questions” She said and we both laughed.
“You can’t be a celebrity if you don’t wanna relate with people,you have to talk to a lot of pe..” She was saying but i cut her short.
“Let’s leave that..” I said and she sighed.
“You don’t like me talking about that. Anel,i know the reason you’re doing all this but you just have to let it go, don’t you feel bored at times…not having friends is a boring lifestyle” She said.
“Boring? Hell no! Not having friends even made me learn to enjoy my own company,I’m never bored. I started living like this for the past eight years and I’ve gotten used to it…” I said.
“You’re doing all this because of your Mum right?” She asked and i nodded with tears clouding my eyes.
“Anel,your mum is long gone,do you think she’ll be happy to see you being a loner,from what I’ve heard..your Mum is a friendly person who talks to almost everyone…”
“And that was the reason she died early” I said and let out my tears.
“She had friends who made her got into a mess,she was manipulated and pushed by this so called friend,she did it for a damn guy who couldn’t love her back and she ended up dieing in the process while they are still alive enjoying their lives” I said slowly in pain.
“Anel,you don’t have to put the blame on anyone,your mum wouldn’t have done it if she didn’t want to…”
“If she also didn’t have any friend,all this wouldn’t have happened,she wouldn’t have followed anyone to any granny’s place” I said and collected the hankie Mil handed to me.
I cleaned my tears…
“Just let all this go,thank goodness you don’t know the people you believed cause your mum’s death…I can’t even imagine what you would have done to them. Uncle Liam did a good job by not revealing them to you” She said.
“You know them right?” I asked and she nodded.
“Just tell me,i promise i won’t do anything” I lied.
Of course I’ll do something, setting their house ablaze is the least I’ll do!
“No way I’m telling you” She said.
“I know you won’t though” I sighed.
“Liam never wanted you to know or meet them,that was the reason he made you all relocate from where you were staying before your Mum died as i was told by Reiya” She said.
“I’ve asked several times but no one is willing to disclose their identity to me and Liam warned me not to ask again,Even dad was not willing to disclose it to me and it was then i backed off” I said.
Speaking of dad,he hasn’t call me today.
“Those people might really care about you,they might have tour the whole of this Paris for you not knowing you guys are staying in this hidden street” She said.
“Why should they care about me? They would probably be happy that im outta sight” I said.
“Well..who knows,all i want is for you to change,Anel,i know a lot of people that’ll be willing to be your friend,just give them a chance..not everyone is like your mum’s friends” She said.
“Do you know i already started another school” I smiled trying to wave off the talk she was trying to bring up.
No one can convince me on this.
“All right,you succeeded in dismissing my discussion..so what the name of your new school” She asked.
“Makers high school” I smiled.
Why the hell am i smiling?
“Isn’t that the school your mum attended?” She asked and i nodded.
“Wow!” She exclaimed…”you seem to like the school” She added.
“Why do you think i do?” I asked.
“Your cheeks were filled with smiles when you talked about it” She said.
“Really?..well,i didn’t smile because of the school. I just thought it’s nice to smile at the moment” I lied.
Damn! I’m gradually becoming a professional liar.
“But you don’t normally think it’s nice to smile when you talk about Neltodine high school” She said.
“Well the schools are different… Neltodine high school is filled with jerks and perverts who wants their heads broken all the time! But Makers high school is different,i like the school a bit” I said.
“So have you broken anyone’s head in Makers high school?” She asked.
“Mm…no! But i plan on doing that soon,there’s this crazy thing who’s getting on my nerve,i just had to give him more time cause i resumed the school just yesterday” I said.
“Hmm” She sighed.
“You look stunning as usual” I said.
“Thanks,you also look more beautiful” She said.
“How’s fallen angels?” I asked.
“Mum and dad are fine, Ive decided not to sign any film contract after this,i want to spend more time with them” She said.
“What of your sibling Scott?” I asked.
“He’s fine, he’ll be graduating from high school soon” She smiled.
Just like mil,Scott is also breathtaking.
I saw him once when i was on holiday at fallen angel’s.
“Oh..my.. bad! What do you wanna take?” I asked.
“I took something in the plane already,but i think i need more ice cream” She said and dropped the empty plate of ice cream.
“Okay” I said and walked to the kitchen.
I opened the freezer and brought out two covered plates of strawberry ice cream,one for me and one for Mil.
Ah! I’ve forgotten the flavor she likes..
“Mil, which flavor do you want?” I asked loudly.
“Vanilla” She said and i returned a plate of ice cream and replaced it with vanilla.
I closed the freezer and walked out of the kitchen with the plates of ice cream in my hand.
I got to the living room and met mil on her iPad,she dropped it when she saw me approaching,i handed her ice cream to her and caught a glimpse of what displayed on the screen of her iPad.
I smiled and dropped my ice cream.
“Do you want him to draw or paint for you?” I asked Mil who i think look uneasy.
I picked the iPad and stared at Bryan Shaw’s pictures.
“Uh..mm..n.. Yes” She said.
I also want him to draw for me,i badly want a piece of his work but Liam is always giving excuses anytime i tell him.
I’m gonna get one myself one of these days.
“I like him so much,he looks so calm and humble” I said.
“You mean you like him?” Mil asked and i nodded and continued scrolling through his other pictures.
Mil suddenly jerked the iPad from my hand.
I looked at her in surprise..
“Sorry Anel,i totally forgot,i need to call my manager now for the time I’ll arrive at the film location tomorrow” She smiled.
“Ohh.. okay” I said and sat back on the couch and uncovered my ice cream.
I noticed the uninteresting movie was still playing.
I picked the remote control and changed the movie while mil was on phone with her manager.
She dropped her iPad and i turned to face her,glad she already finished the almost everlasting call.
“So you want Bryan Shaw to draw for you? Can you make him draw and paint for me also? I’m gonna pay for it” I said.
“Uhm.. actually,the director of the movie said we might use one of Bryan Shaw’s art for the movie we’ll be shooting,but when i called my manager now,she informed me that the director already changed his mind” She said and i sighed sadly.
“Okay” I breathed and scooped some ice cream into my mouth.
“Do you want a piece of his work that bad?” She asked.
“Yes i do” I said..
“I can’t believe you like Bryan Shaw” She said.
“Why shouldn’t i?,is there a reason i shouldn’t?” I asked.
“Of course no! Like him all you want and I’ll try to get you a piece of his work” She said and i dropped my ice cream and shifted closer to hug her.
I pecked her happily…
“I’m honored to be sitting with the world’s famous, youngest actor and model” I teased and we both laughed.
“My pleasure” She said with a fake arrogance and we laughed more.
We talked on and on,till the door open.
The whole family bursted in and Ana screamed on seeing Mil,then rushed into her arms.
🌺🌺 Dinner 🌺🌺
We all sat round the table having our dinner mum prepared..
Mil is already freshened up.
“How’s Mig and Vin?” Mum asked Mil.
“They are fine” She said.
“What of Scott?” Liam asked.
“They are all fine, Scott will be graduating from high school soon” She smiled.
“Wow,that’s an achievement” Granny said.
“Liam” I called.
“Huh?” He turned to me.
“My birthday is drawing near,can i ask for a gift?” I asked.
“Of course you can,I’ll do anything for you” He said and i sighed.
“Okay,i want one of Bryan Shaw’s drawing of me” I said and noticed they all dropped their spoon.
“Bryan Shaw?” Mum asked.
“Yes Mum,he’s so good at what he does. I like him” I said.
“So.. Liam that’s what i want,you said you’ll do anything for me” I said.
He didn’t answer,he rather stared at me.
“Uhm… everyone is done eating,Anel go wash the dishes” Mum said.
“Liam, won’t you say something? Should i consider that as a yes” I said hopefully.
“Anel go and wash the dishes” Granny also said.
“When did you start pestering me to go wash the dishes? Anyway,i will go wash it” I said and stood up.
I packed the dishes and headed to the kitchen.
I sat on my bed and stared into space.
I don’t feel like sleeping yet,i began fondling my necklace singing softly…
I stared at her pictures, smiling.
I just had my night bath,I’m about to sleep but i don’t feel like sleeping yet.
I remembered her pictures and decided to scroll through it.
I laughed at the one she held her legs high in the hair.
She look more beautiful when smiling.
She resumed just yesterday!.
Why is her pictures on my phone.
That proud psycho.
I’m just gonna delete everything right now.
I made to delete the pictures but i just couldn’t.
I placed my phone on the bedside table and drew the blanket closer to my chest.
I walked out of my room after i was done dressing for school.
I got to the living room and met Dad, sipping a cup of coffee while going through his art book.
I smiled as i watched him.
“Dan” He called without turning.
I know he’s gonna notice my presence.
“Good morning Dad” I said and walked closer to him.
“How was your night?”
“Fine Dad,i have to quickly go take my breakfast..I’m running late” I said and hurried to the dinning.
My breakfast was placed on the dining,i saw the empty plate of Mike’s breakfast but he wasn’t there.
I walked to the kitchen and didn’t see mum.
I walked back to the dining.
“Dad where’s Mum and Mike?” I asked.
“They are both in her room,she’s dressing up for work” Dad said.
“Okay..i better eat fast”
I dropped my backpack and started eating.
“Bye” I waved to mum and Mike as i alighted from the car.
“Bye” they waved back before Mum drove off.
I showed my school identity card before the gatekeeper allowed me in.
I walked straight to the class knowing I’m a bit late.
I was right,when i walked into the classroom and saw teaching has commenced.
“Good morning Mrs Carde” I greeted.
“Why are you late?” She asked.
“I’m sorry…” I was saying but got interrupted by the least person i expected.
“He’s not late, he has five minutes left,you were the one who came to teach earlier than your supposed time” Psycho said boldly with a stoic face.
Mrs Carde look surprised so as the students.
Sh..she actually defended me!
“Go to your seat” Mrs Carde said.
I smiled and walked to my sit,glad that psycho want to start talking to me.
I’m also ready to talk to her.
“Hi” I smiled when i got to my seat.
She didn’t turn to look at me nor answer.
“Thanks for saving me” I said but she didn’t act like she was the one i was talking to.
I thought she wanted to start talking to me.
I just feel like hitting her head right now for making me happy over nothing.
I sat alone on my chair in the cafeteria, eating and watching as students walked to and fro.
I’m pissed at myself for defending maniac in the morning.
I don’t just know how those words popped out of my mouth.
I sighed and stared at maniac’s table.
I caught his eyes and he quickly lowered his long natural lashes.
How did i see that?
He loves eating with that girl and Karissa.
I bet Karissa won’t dare bully anyone anymore,not when I’m here.
She has been sending glares my way and just like the Anel i am,i returned her glares back to her.
“Everyone, should order anything they want,im gonna pay for it” Travis shouted in the cafeteria.
The students shouted happily and ran to the counter.
I hissed and turned back to my meal.
I twisted the cap of my bottle water and gulped it down.
I sighed and cleaned my mouth.
I found my eyes going to maniac’s table again.
He was laughing at whatever Karissa was telling him.
His napkin fell and he bent to pick it.
I gasped when i sa..saw the fallen angel’s necklace drop from his neck.
JUST FOR LOVE 2 (Love, why?)
