Episode 40

He was so surprise she came back. Charlie walked in slowly looking at him. “ sorry. I came to pick my bag”she said looking at him. She bent down to pick it up. Justin didn’t say anything, he was just staring at her till she get out of the room with her bag.
She took a deep breath leaning her back to the door. She touched her cheek with both hands to feel the temperature as it feels like it’s burning like hell.”why am I acting strange? I think am loosing it seriously.”she said laughing at herself. She started walking back to the compound smiling.
Justin sat at the end of the couch thinking about how Sarah just acted. “What a strange girl”he said and stood up heading to the bathroom.
When Sarah got back to school, she missed two periods already. She met Lucia on her way to the next class. “Hey. Are you just coming to school by this time? Why?”she asked following her. “It’s nothing. I went to get something at home”she replied smiling. “OK. I thought you are not coming to school for today when I couldn’t find you”Lucia said.
Hanna and Daniel were sitting at the back of the basketball field as usual.”Hanna can I ask you a question?”Daniel asked looking at her. She wondered what he was going to ask her. “You can go ahead”she replied. “Fine. Why do you like picking on Charlie? I noticed you guys were not close. The more I look at it, I think Charlie don’t have the same hatred for you. She liked you as her real sister. She tried all her possible best to make you guys get along well, but you were just opposite of what she feels about you.”Daniel said looking at her. Hanna stared at him for a while before responding”it’s not that I hate her, to be sincere with you…”she stopped for a while looking at him. Daniel want her to say the reasons of her hatred towards Sarah. “I just got jealous of her in everything. I think she’s better than me in many things. Because of this, I always find myself not satisfied by everything she does. Because she’s pretty, brilliant and more smarter than me. Because she always get more attention from people than I. My hatred for her grew each day by day. I can see she was trying her best to keep peace between us but I was never ready to do the same. Now I just realized it’s useless because the person I was doing all this to, was not even moved by it.”she said feeling bad. “You now see pride and hatred doesn’t have any gain, it left the heart with more pains and regrets. You can still make it up with her if you could drop that pride of yours and get along well”Daniel said looking at her. “Thank you so much. You’re such a wonderful friend to me. You stood up for me in times of difficulties. You made me realize whats good from what’s bad. I know you’re trying to make me a better person. Thank you so much Daniel”she said smiling. “It’s nothing. I think that’s just the right thing to do. I can’t let you go astray. I also thank you for heading to my advises.”Daniel said smiling.
Justin was indoor all day. He felt his whole body was in pain. His body was burning like fire. He wrapper himself up in his blanket feeling sick. He tried reaching his hand for the glass cup of water on his shelf, but his hand hit it and it fell to the ground broken into pieces.
Its 7:30pm, Sarah was in her room reading for test. As she stared at those words in it the note, nothing got into her brain. She kept thinking of how Justin treated her back in his room. “How can he treat me like that? I thought he was always cool and gentle but he acted like another person today. If you don’t want to see me worried about you again, Fine. I would also just ignore you from now on.”Sarah said.
She dropped her pen and closed the note when she couldn’t memorize anything from it. She stood up from the stood switching off the light to sleep. She lied down on her bed hoping she could just get a peaceful sleep without her seeing his images in her head again. She closed her eyes to sleep, but the ringing tone of her phone woke her up. Her eyes were widely opened as the ring tone pierced through her ears. “Who could it be?”she asked herself feeling lazy to pick it up. She reached her hand for it and brought it to her face to see the caller. To her surprise, it was Justin. She quickly jumped up from her bed looking at her phone’s screen again. “Why? Am I seeing it wrong? Why is he calling me this late?”she asked herself looking up at the time, It was 7:45pm. She swiped the screen to answer and placed it to her ear. “Hello. Why….”she hasn’t finish asking the reason before she heard his weak voice talking. “I think I need your help now”he said sounding weak and sick. “What happened to you? Am coming to you right now”she said to him. She hung up the call and quickly changed into something else taking off the night gown. She took her key and left the room rushing out to the compound for her car.
Justin’s fever got higher each minutes. He dropped his phone by his side after the call. “I think I have no else to call but her.”he said in a faint voice.
Few minutes later, Sarah came in rushing to his side with her face full of worries. “Are you OK? What happened? Why are you like this? Do you have a fever?”she kept asking questions. “thanks for coming. Am OK. Am seriously OK”he said closing his eyes little by little until they were both shut finally. She checked his temperature by placing her hand on his forehead. She quickly took her away from him due to the hotness. “Oh you’re seriously burning. what should I do?”she said looking at his face. She went out and came back with a bowl of cold water and white towel. She bent down beside Him soaking the towel in the water. She placed it on his forehead to cool down the fever.
After a while, Justin opened his eyes slowly. He feels all better and was in his right self now. He noticed something was on his forehead. He removed the wet towel and drop it in the bowl beside Sarah. She was sleeping already. She sat on a stood with her head placed on the sofa beside Justin. He moved closer to her face staring at her as she sleeps. He stared At her for long before standing up from her side. He headed to the bathroom to wash his face. When he got back to his room, Sarah has already woke up from her sleep. She checked the time and it was 10pm. “Oh no. It’s too late already”she said standing up. Justin walked up to her as she was wearing her shoes to start heading back home. “Thank you for tonight”he said not looking at her. Sarah stood up looking at him. “It’s good to see you all better now. Don’t ever get sick again OK. You scared me a while ago”Sarah said. “If you don’t want me to get sick, don’t ever lie or keep anything from me again. Don’t pretend you don’t know me ignoring me like a stranger. It hurts more than you thought” Justin said looking at her. “Am sorry for doing that in the first place. Please forgive me”Sarah said. Justin nodded his head smiling”I have forgiving you already. Am also sorry for acting a little harsh this morning.”he said looking at her. He walked to his drawer and brought out the necklace box. “I don’t think it’s a surprise anymore. Since you saw it already.”Justin said as he brought out the necklace. He moved closer her and put on the necklace for her. “Do you like it?”he asked smiling. “Thank you so much. Its so pretty”Sarah said smiling. “I think it suites you perfectly”Justin said smiling. Sarah checked the time and saw it was almost 10 already. “Oh time really runs so fast”she said smiling.
