Read The Story
I left for my room after having the last piece of suya with Kelvin. I was beginning to like kelvin,he was most of the time calm and quiet but we just connect naturally. I got to my room and my phone signified there was a new message.

I clicked on the message and it was from Jordan.
In the message he said he got home not long ago and he did not know if my mom would still be scolding me by then which was why he decided to send a sms. I smilled and called him after reading his message. He sounded happy when i called and he told me how worried he was thinking i would be scolded by mom becos of him. I told him mom did not complain and we talked for a while before hanging up. I took my bath and retired for the day. I woke up 6:30 on Tuesday morning, i said my prayer and went to mom’s room be4 coming back to dress up for school. I wore a straped pink&black crop top on a high waist blue tight jean trouser and a blue pair of snickers with a pink chain bag. Ever since mom gave me the chain and ring dad got for me,i saw it as a last gift from my dad which i had to treasure and i promised myself never to remove it, if possible i would pass it on to my daughter when i have a family. I pulled out the chain over my top and wore a gold earring to match. I put on my wrist watch and wore a ‘Smart collection’ perfume before leaving for the kitchen to get breakfast. I met kelvin in the kitchen, i greeted him and asked if he had boiled the water for tea. He replied yes. I was about leaving the kitchen when he said “Smart collection”, i turned to face him and said what did u say? He smilled and said “your perfume,its a product of smart collection”.
I smilled and replied yes before leaving for the dinning room. Wondering how he got to know the name of the perfume collection i was wearing. I had my breakfast and informed mom i was ready for school before d driver took me to school. The receptionist greeted me warmly and i went to my department. It was few minutes to nine when i arrived but unlike yesterday,the hall was filled up already. I greeted some of my course mate be4 settling down in an empty sit. I checked my whatsap and i saw a message from Jordan ,he said he would be leaving for school later in the day and wont be back until weekend. ‘I wonder why everybody that makes my life fun always end up disappearing’ i thought. I replied his message with ‘stay safe’ and logged out of whatsap. Minutes later a man came into the lecture room and introduced himself has the government teacher. After the government class i left to have lunch at the school cafeteria.

I got my order and settled in an empty sit and I was about starting to eat when two girls came to join me,they introduced themeselv as Simi and Toke. I also told them my name and they asked alot of questions about the school i graduated from and the university i would love to attend.
This two girls sure love to talk alot as they went on and on about their choice of school and their reason for choosing the school. I would’nt love talkatives as friends so i excused myself after my meal and left for the general class. We had mathematics as the general subject for the day.

I hate mathematics as a subject and if i had the chance,i would have removed the course from d list of compulsory courses. After the lesson,d teacher gave us an assignment to submit on the following day and i was full of thought,not knowing who would help me to solve the mathematical problems. I arrived home by 3:00pm and met mom’s absent. I called her and she told me she had a bussiness transaction to carry out and would be back soon. I saw and greeted kelvin in d living room and headed to my room. I took my bath and had a change of cloth before going to the dinning room,to have lunch.
There was nothing on the dinning table when i got there, so i asked kelvin ‘whats for lunch?’ he said mom told him to wait for me be4 making lunch in order to know what i would want to have since she wont be around to have lunch with us.

I said ‘ok’ and left for d kitchen. I was about putting the pot on fire when kelvin came into d kitchen and said “ready to cause another disaster?” I smilled and told him yesterday incident was a mistake and am a good cook. He asked me what i wanted to make and i told him rice. He then suggested we make the meal together if i wont let him make it alone.

While cooking we discussed about different things like celebrities,d government and school.

I was surprised he was intelligent and well informed about everything. During the conversation,i got to know he was a civil engineering OND holder from kwara state polytechnic.


Just as i had thought, he told me he had to work to further his education because his mom was not financially stable at the moment. He did not talk about his dad and i did not bother to ask.

The rice was ready and we ate together on the dinning table, after which, i went to my room to have a nap
