THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Tochi went to school with a heavy heart feeling like she had been deprived from her right. She never ceased to appear beautiful and lovely in the sight of boys especially Wisdom. She made sure she was in school as early as possible. She walked majestically on the road leading to her classroom where she saw Wisdom coming from the other side of the road. They came closer without looking at each other.
“Good morning, senior” Tochi greeted but Wisdom didn’t respond, then she passed him but suddenly turned. “Won’t you answer my greetings?” she asked.
“When you are ready to greet me, you call me by my name” Wisdom replied.
Tochi gave a weak smile. “Good morning, Wisdom” she repeated.
“Good morning, Welcome” he replied and also gave a weak smile.
Melody, who had small feelings for Wisdom got rid of it immediately when she knew that it won’t favor her and planned to be closer to Esther and Tochi. However, Esther couldn’t wait to express her feelings to Wisdom. She came immediately after Tochi left into her classroom and met Wisdom on the same road.
“Good morning, Wisdom” she greeted glowing with smiles and even gave him one sided hug.
“You look beautiful and happy this morning” Wisdom smiled too.
“Why shouldn’t i be?”
“Wow! Good to hear”
They stared at each other.
“Can i see you..” both said at the same time and laughed.
“You go first” Esther suggested.
At that moment, Tochi came out and saw them in such a close range, then she became jealous staring at them.
“No, you go first” Wisdom insisted.
“Okay, i wanted to ask if i can see you after school hour”
“That’s the same thing i wanted to ask”
“That means we have the same thing in mind”
“Okay, see you then” Esther concluded nd walked out just to see Tochi looking at her. They stared at each other, then Esther hissed and went into her classroom.
Jennifer and Calista also came to school without smiling monitoring Tochi’s movement but didn’t see any implication.
Melody was more familiar with Esther than initial. They stayed inside the classroom cracking jokes but Melody suddenly wore a different face.
“What is it?” Esther asked her.
“Is it true you love Wisdom?”
“Who told you?”
“Of course yesterday’s drama made it obvious”
Esther remained quiet remembering the all thing.
“What if i say i love him?” she asked.
“That will be great! But what of Jennifer?”
“And so? Why is everyday scared of her?”
“I’m just saying”
Just at that moment, Tochi walked in after taking permission, then Esther frowned her face.
“Good day seniors” Tochi greeted.
“Welcome” Melody replied.
“Esther, can i talk to you?”
“But i want you to understand that..”
“I said no!” Esther interrupted her angrily.
“Take it easy nah, listen to her!” Melody suggested.
“No, i will not. I have nothing to do with her anymore. Come, who allowed this girl into this class?!” she exclaimed and strong_headed boys appeared immediately and chased Tochi away.
“You are so mean to her” Melody said.
“That girl is a betrayer”
“Hmm” She remained quiet.
Chester cornered Tochi after Wisdom told him to wait for him to talk to Esther as they planned. Students had gone home even Jennifer who had been monitoring Tochi’s movement.
“Chester, i want to go” Tochi told him at the entrance the her road home.
“Okay, but can i ask you something?”
“What is it?”
“Do you really love Wisdom?”
Hearing that, her heart began to beat again and feeling scared.
“Don’t lie to me, do you love him?” Chester persuaded then she nodded her head positively.
Tochi gradually turned to go but stopped and looked at Chester.
“Where is Wisdom?” she asked.
“He’s with Esther?”
Hearing that, her heart skipped thinking that Wisdom was actually carryingout her instructions, so she went home heartbroken.
There was no student in the class where Wisdom stood at the window with Esther in a way Esther laid her back on the wall. She gradually grabbed his waist and stared into his eyes.
“So tell me that which you wanted to tell me?” she said smiling.
“No, you go first” Wisdom expostulated.
“No, i disagree”
“Okay, if you say so” Wisdom began. “I want you to understand that Tochi have nothing to do with me. By the way, why are you even angry with her?”
Esther remained quiet biting her finger, them Wisdom gently remove it.
“I only came here to tell you that she’s innocence”
“Then who does your heart beat for?” Esther asked but Wisdom became quiet. Esther could sense that it wasn’t her then she touched his cheeks and said, “Wisdom, i love you with all my heart. Please, tell me that u love me too, or am i not beautiful enough?”
“U are very beautiful my dear and i like you as a friend”
“Who then do you love?”
“Is Tochi! My heart beat for,her”
Esther began to shed tears. “Please, don’t do this to me” she said.
“I’m sorry, Esther” Wisdom gradually disengaged himself from her and walked away.
“Wisdom, please!” Esther cried…
