Immediately I left the class, I made my way to the assembly ground where it seems Principal awaited my arrival, I observed his every move, he was every inch the principal, I was watching his every move that I couldn’t help but question myself if he was anything like my father since
Birds of a feather flock together right?
I made my way towards him to give him the customary greeting since I wasn’t able to completely analyze him
“Good morning sir” I greeted, he stopped what he was doing and looked back at me, a wide grin spreading across his face, he extended his hands to me which I took shaking it in turn, as I made to leave he dragged me back his ever ready plastered smile on his face
“Cyrus, why don’t you lead the Assembly for today? You should be like your father when we were both in school he was the perfect example for others students and till now he hasn’t failed …..” he said talking on and onhe hasn’t failed the world but to his family, to his son he has a Giant F result awaiting him
“You can go “he said pointing towards the stage, I was discarded, I was right again he was trying to look for my father in me, that’s why he keeps describing me as a model student to otherswhat an error!!
I signed in defeat, before making my way to the stage, greeting other teachers on my way, I finally got to the podium where I stood like a statue, feeling the gaze of the principal on me again got me working, I began to conduct the other students though I wasn’t feared much my handsome face did the work, I always wonder how the girls still like me I was so especially cold towards them
The national anthem was about to begin when I saw that beautiful golden hair shining brightly in the sun, she was using a fan to shade herself from the sun, she looked towards the stage before turning to say something to her friends
She made friends so easily she had been in the school for just a day and yet she could pack such minions while I have been in school but I was rarely talked to unless it was the case of my classmates not clear with an assignment or they were looking for a scapegoat to represent them at the students/teachers meetings where each class has to pick a representative normally it was supposed to be the class monitor but mysteriously the Class monitor usually falls sick on the date assigned which leaves me as the next available option
I watched her come close, she joined the line for our class at the back talking nonstop her minions, immediately she got close, the assembly ground became rowdy and noisy, Boys were filled with desire while the girls were filled with envy
I tried to stop the noise but to no avail A mesmerizing beauty had arrived
Finally the assembly was over and we all fled from the agony inflicted upon us by the sun to the comfort of our classroom, walking steadily from the assembly ground I entered the class, miss beauty was still not on sit, I settled on my chair, getting ready for the day’s lecture
Sure enough Miss beauty soon walked in talking merrily with her minions who said a hurried goodbye to her at the door and went to their own sits, I could smell her sweet perfume as she took her sit, letting herhair fall to the side, her hair was plastered all over the desk creating a very tempting posture
I swallowed hurriedly focusing my attention on my books, I was still trying to open the book when a tall handsome silhouette I recognize as Richard the school playboy who he derives pleasure in going for the school beauties only it was a pity his relationships do not last a month
I ignored his existence but that could not stop me from hearing their conversation
“The name’s Richard “ he said extending a hand, she took the hand shaking it vigorously she applied a little more strength to her grip
Completely ignoring their existence I focused on bringing out the textbook we have for the first period , I began arranging my books on my desk, I tried to block out their discussion as the current glitch in my life flirted away not giving a care for anything.
I wondered how a girl could be so shameless, today was just her first day at school, yet she was agreeing to attend a pool party with him, this is Africa not America, where you dial 911 and it comes running in the blink of an eye, and boys like Richard are only looking for conquests to boost their ego
What a foolish princess
“So, I will pick you up after school” Richard offered, caressing her white skin, gently fiddling with it, a surge of anger wen t to me as he did that
She giggled giving her consent, the sound making all the boys around to flush and look at her obsessively, wanting to do nothing but to rip her clothes off and make love to herRichard plaid his time, the teacher was going to be in the classroom soon, he decided to fast track his game ”Can I get your number?” Using the same lame pickup line every lame guy has used in history
Wanting to cut off his ruse, I bent down as I wanted to pick up a book, my hand went straight to the siren, but it was broken, I wondered how, I was fully in charge of it and the other students knew better than to touch it, I will not spare them. Principal Francis is going to have a fit, and then he will judiciously tell my Dad
From the corner of my eye, I caught a sly curve up of a lip, I turned to look at it fully, a set of sexy lips painted in red stared back at me, they were enchanting, Marie winked at me, smiling like a devil, she switched to her cute innocent act in front of Richard, who went on talking to her like the gullible idiot he was
I stared blankly at her, what she devil did they bring close to me? What sort of trouble is this?
She was definitely throwing herself as bait, she just was not aware.
She shouldn’t have messed with me, I will express my opinions to her in action later only it wouldn’t be the act or prank she was expecting, I will show her a different type of action that will make her run kilometers away from me.
I don’t do friends, I was much of a loner and the earlier I put an end to this charade the better, the little minx would get the shock of her life in Library class
The teacher entered the room carrying his books, we all stood up to greet as usual, Marie’s mouth slid open at the action, it was new to her definitely, she turned to me to complain but I ignored her and hid my face in my Mathematics Textbook
After a while, I glanced at her, she was fidgeting around in her sit, totally uncomfortable, she would stop and smile sweetly when she notice the students attention on her, I laughed silently. School was going to be fun.
MARIE P.O.VI was beyond tired of standing up to introduce myself every time a new teacher enters, my butt was beginning to ache from standing up and sitting down in short intervals, but I was comforted a little as the teachers all liked me and gave me special attention except my seat mate of course, who delightfully ignored meI tried to pen down whatever the teachers were saying, but it all felt like gibberish in my ears, I was not one who was particular about my grades, all I needed was the perfect score to get into universityI decided to stop jotting down and just collect my Cyrus note when the teacher left, but I wondered how I would achieve that, he se
CYRUS KAYE POV“Have you seen Marie Richwood?”The urgency with which Anna asked me the question made me look up from my Map tracing; it was a free period after the library class which I decided to put to good use. After what I did to Marie at the library, I knew she was going to retaliate but I did not expect her to disappear.Examining Anna, she was looking so worried and tensed, her hands wrung together, she seemed to be on the verge of tears. Fat globes of tears sat on her eyelids, threatening to fall which was something I hated, crying girls were not my thing.
MARIE RICHWOOD POVI am the queen bee. If Cyrus Kaye thinks he can take me on, then he needs to be awakened from his delusion. I was beyond livid at Cyrus treatment of me. Quintessential me refused to back down. I waited for Anna behind the football court, with my equipment ready, Anna was such a good resource in getting them. The only thing I needed was that arrogant African prince. I did not have to wait for long, from my hiding spot, I could see him coming closer arguing with Anna, the petite girl was doing such a good job, I felt like giving her a medal, he was perfectly distracted, his brows crease
MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.V“Marie Richwood?”“Shit,” I muttered, shocked by how shaky my voice was. “Principal Francis?” “I was told someone was impersonating my name on their first day school, what do you have to say about that Marie?” he asked quietly, putting his hands at his back like a disoriented preacherI sent Nicole an icy glare, which she returned with equal fervor. I would deal with her later, I turned to Principal Francis and sent him my sweetest smile, one I h
MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.VIt was only two days later, as I sat in my room with Cyrus who was sitting with every bit of my school books scattered around us on my study table that I found out Nicole identity“She is Principal Francis daughter, she is our age mate also” Why do you ask?” he answered, nose bent in a bookI shook my head “Nothing, just wanted to know, she seems to have so much power in the school that’s all”“Never mind that, whatever respect she has gathered has nothing to
CYRUS KAYE P.O.V“How are you preparing for your exams?” My mom asked me at breakfast, the following day being a weekend. Thanking God for small mercies, she suddenly developed stomach cramps from not eating properly and the doctor advised her to stay home.“Exams has not started Mum, it’s just the beginning of the term” “Really?" I thought it was at least close to the midterms”
MARIE RICHWOOD POV“You look gorgeous, Marie. Are we sure you are going to school and not a party?”I observed myself in the mirror, my blond hair was perfectly styled, and I weaved the edges, giving it a semi African look. I allowed my hand brush over my extremely short skirt. There was nothing I could do about the customary white shirt other than make sure I loosened at least two buttons while Cyrus was looking. My makeup was top notch also, though I tried to make it look as natural as humanly possible then I finished it with a bright red lipstick. The uniform had been longer when it was given to me but I had reshaped it to my taste. No quirky uniform was going to spoil my reputation. No way I would allow myself to wear the nunne
CYRUS P.O.VGlancing around me, I let my gaze slid across the wicked beauty sitting beside me. She was looking exquisite; her hair was the perfect shade. Her creamy thighs were lusciously spread for my gaze. I swallowed deeply, am sure if I slid my hand in she would be more than ready to accommodate me. She smiled seductively at me, resting her head on her desk; she faced me staring at me with cute eyes. The only thing I could think of was holding Marie inn my arms. The feel of her body against mine would make me feel complete fo
