Thanks for all your comments.
*********

Edith gaped at her sobbing friend disbelievingly. This girl is wierd! She thought.

"So you are now Jay-Jay's Enemy?" she asked, her voice almost a whisper.

"I don't know...he said he doesn't wanna see me again.." Betty whimpered.

"se ori re buru? You thought he was joking?" Edith galred at her.

"I don't know if I'm mad too...everything- everyone is against me." Betty wailed

Edith felt sorry for her friend. What could she do to help.
"everybody is not against you, atleast I'm not. I'm still here for you." her lips quivered.

"My mother wants me to be a 5 pointer, she believes my relationship with boys is my stumbling block.." Betty lamented.

"Life is wicked" she concluded
before lyimg down on bed. She hugged her teddy, it was a gift from Jay-Jay. She wished the teddy would turn into Jay-Jay.

"Jay, I'm sorry.." she sobbed into the teddy

"stop crying, everything will be fine huh?!" edith assured her.

************
Things actually went on fine, Edith was right after all. Betty was in her final year, writting her final exams, she was now a sequential 5 pointer. Her name was a popular one in her department.

She was sitting beside the twin statue, she was exhausted after writting two papers that morning. She ran her hands on the statue and Emeka's face flashed across her mind. This was their favourite spot.

They had their first kiss behind the statue. She could vividly remember how it felt, tasted and how her lips got swollen in the process.

She smiled gently, trying to wave his face off her mind but it lingered, bringing sweet memories back. She could remember his seductive looks that made her felt special, how he complimented everything she did either good or bad.

She sighed. She learnt from Edith that he left for his youth service last year. He must have moved on with another girl...

She looked around her, wishing he'd appear.

She saw Tiger sauntering towards her, perhaps he was here to kill her. Her heart raced fastly. She quickly stood up, picked her bag, ready to go when he called out.

"Sisi how far na" he got to where she is.

"Hy..." she sounded nervous.

"how you dey?" he was smiling.

"Fine"

"Person no come dey see you again, na book cos am?" he queried.

She managed a smile.

"hmn, ever since Jay-Jay bin travel, you no fit come greet person ba?" he continued.

"He travelled?" she couldn't hide her suprise.

"Ehn now! You know say him graduate last year na, so him papa say him no go do NYSC, now him be medical practitioner for UK." Tiger explained.

"Wow thats nice!" was all she could say.

"Anyway make I dey go, If Jay-Jay call you, tell am say I dey hail" he said before walking away.

Gosh! So Tiger never knew she and Jay-Jay aint together anylonger? Wow! That means he kept it a secret. But wait! UK? Thats too far, she might never see him again. She thought as she walked slowly towards the hostel.

***********
Betty was sitting alone in the room, she's done with her exams, she was just waiting for Edith to conclude her's before she vacate school.

There was a knock on the door.
"Come in"

a short fat girl peeped in.
"Is Betty Amah here?" she asked in a baritone voice.

Betty looked at her amused
"Yes, I'm Betty."

"somebody is looking for you, he said you should meet him at the biological science garden" her baritone voice was deeper now.

"what's his name?" Betty asked

"me don't know, go and see for yourself" the girl replied impatiently, before taking her leave.

Betty wondered who it was. Perhaps it was one of her numerous coursemates.
Or one of those JJC's she gave tutorials.
She quickly adjusted her skirt, wore her shoes and walked out.

************
She saw him pacing up and down the garden, the cool evening breeze blew his deodorant sharply into her nose. She stood still, deciding what to do.

He turned sharply, their gaze met. Those eyes! She looked away.

"Baby?" he too was undecided.

As if suddenly drawn by a cord, she ran into his waiting arms.

"I'm sorry" he whispered

She searched his eyes "Emeka, I'm sorry for..."

He placed a finger on her lips
"Shhh, we all make mistakes..." Emeka smiled.

"Thank you." tears streaked down her cheeks.

"Don't cry" he wiped her tears.

"I came to take you with me.." he took her hands.

"me?" she whispered.

"uhm, so that we can spend our lives together, I think we should be one body" He explained searching her eyes.

"Are you asking me to marry you?" she sounded coy.

"yea, please..." he brought out a saphire ring.

"will you marry me?" he knelt on a knee.

"Yes" she whispered tears streaming down her face.

He started to insert the ring into her fingers..

Boom! came the sound of a gun shot. Betty shivered.
Emeka held his stomach and sloped towards the ground.
Only then did she realise he was shot.

"Emeka" she gasped

She bent over him "Emeka?" she whispered in fear.
But he was unconcious.

"Emeka!" She shook him vehemently.
"Please open your eyes" she whispered.

"Emeka don't leave me here, please don't leave me.." she wailed throwing her self on his body.

She heard a siren blasting the air.
Next thing she heard was

"You are under arrest."

Her head was spinning, she didn't stand up from Emeka's body, she kept begging him not to leave her.

A policeman dragged her up, handcuffed her hands, and led her towards a waiting van.
Tears blurred her vision. She kept screaming.
"Emeka please don't leave me, don't let them take me away... Emeka...biko nu oooo"

"shut up" the police office yelled at her.

She made to jump out of the van but a resounding slap stopped her.
She staggered and fell, her head bashing a rim...she tried to open her eyes...everything became dark, she passed out.

Betty stared blankly at the walls surrounding her, riots of thoughts were on in her mind. She heard the barred door open, she didn't look around, she knew it was one of those policemen who normally came to beat her up.

"Criminal." the voice called.

She fastened her gaze to the wall.

" Some is here to see you, so get up." the voice ordered.

She stood up reluctantly and followed him.

She saw them, Edith and her mother. They were both weeping. She bit her dried lips.

"Sorry.." Edith hugged her weeping.
She hugged her mum, holding her gingerly, her mum wept on her shoulder. Betty didn't cry, she only swallowed and bit her lower lip.

She would never cry! She won't let life mock her, wicked life!

"Sorry my dear..." Dr Amah wept.

"Enough, your five minutes are exhausted." an officer said roughly, pulling Betty from her mother.

"please just some more time" Dr Amah wailed as they took Betty back to her cell.
Betty walked on, she didn't look back.

*************
"please eat" Edith told her gently

Edith always brought her food.

"They've...is..Emeka buried?" betty asked chewing her food slowly.

"no...The body is missing" edith looked away.

" missing?" betty dropped the food, spilling it.

"did you say missing?"

"yea, let's not talk about that now. Your mum will bring you a lawyer tomorrow" Edith tried to change the topic.

Betty stood up, walked towards the wall and spoke to it

"Did you hear that? His body is missing." she whispered.
"I'm doomed right? Life! Must I suffer all this?" she muttered.

She turned to look at Edith.
"Thanks for coming, can you leave now."

"see...I..." Edith looked confused.

Betty turned the wall, rested on it, she won't talk again.

As Edith left the police station, she saw a black Jeep. Its occupant wore a black jacket, she looked at the car, trying to recall something familiar about it.
Its occupant spoke something into a reciever and drove off.

****************
Edith was putting her things and that of Betty in a cab, she was leaving the hostel, she was going back home. She saw the Black Jeep she saw at the station few days ago coming from a distance. It sped towards her and stopped beside the cab.
Its occupant got out, it was Tiger.
She gasped.

"Hey, how're you."

She didn't reply.

"you're vacating the hostel?" he asked again. She never knew he could speak good english.
She kept mute

"How's Betty? I heard what happened."

"You heard? How am I sure you aint the killer?" she dared him.

"Killer?" he chuckled.

"Jay-Jay would be in town this night, when he comes you can ask him that. Meanwhile don't leave yet, Jay-Jay would come looking for you, we need you to solve some issues." he sounded cool.

"nothing is gonna stop me from leaving." she glared at him.

"I guess Jay-Jay can stop you. If you really love your friend as you claim, wait and hear what Jay-Jay has to say." tiger told her, hopping into his jeep and off he went.

Edith looked up, down, left, centre, she was confused. What if Jay-jay killed her? Well she would wait.

Hy guys, sorry for the delay, I was a little bit down.
Thanks for all ya comments...
***********
Betty stared blankly at the prison walls, she was lucky to be alone in her cell- the police count her too dangerous to stay with other prisoners; since she was a murderer.
She've been here for a week now, no one has come to see her, except the few officers who came to interrogate her.

The barred door to her cell opened with a squeaking sound. Another interrogation again! She rolled her eyes.

"Criminal!" a policeman sneered.

She didn't look up, she fastened her eyes to the floor.

"come with me, some people are here to see you"

She got up reluctantly and followed him.

Edith and her mother were there. She froze, what was she going to tell her mum? . She stoped a few metres away from them, she started counting her toes.

"Betty?" Edith's voice was weak, she rushed towards her friend.

"I'm sorry.." Edith was sobbing.
They hugged each other.

She hugged her mum gingerly. Her mum was weeping on her shoulders.

She bit her lower lip, she was in deep pain! But she did not cry. She has made up her mind never to cry, she won't let life mock her.

"Enough! You've exhausted the five minutes you were granted." the policeman pulled Betty away.

She could hear her mother wailing, but she didn't look back. She was used to life.

************:
She sat down; legs spread on the floor. Edith was spoon feeding her, while her mum looked on. Dr Amah paid alot of money before she was allowed to bring food for her daughter.

"Take some water." she said gently.

"Is...They've...is Emeka buried?" Betty stammered.

Edith shook her head "The body is missing."

"Missing?" Betty gasped.
"Did I hear you say missing?" she whispered fiercely.

"Life..." she said meditatively.

"Eat up." Dr Amah wanted to change the topic.

"Eat up? Did you say eat up?" Betty faced her mum.

"do you know who Emeka is to me?" her eyes narrowed.

"you guys can leave now, thanks for coming to see me." she waved them off.

"But our time isn't up." Edith protested.

"and I am tired of seeing your faces" Betty snapped.

They left her in peace.
As the walked slowing towards Dr Amah's car, Edith noticed a black jeep, she'd have seen it somewher e before.
The occupant was a male in a black Jacket, he said something into a reciever and drove off.

"Did you see that jeep?" Edith asked Dr Amah.

"yes." Dr Amah unlocked her car.

"There's something fishy about it.." Edith said quitely.

Dr Amah simply grunted, Edith sighed and got into the car.

**********
Edith stood by the road side trying to flag down a taxi. A jeep pulled up beside her- same as the one she saw few days ago.

It's occupant got out, it was Tiger.
She gasped.

"so, whats up?" Tiger moved towards her, she looked away.

"where are you going?" he asked again.
She remained mute.

"I heard what happened, how is Betty?" he pestered.

"how is Betty?" she mimicked him.
"And why do you want to know?" she queried.

"cos I feel I need to know" He looked at her squarely.

"hmn, you don't need to know! How am I sure you aint the killer" Edith retorted.

"Killer?" Tiger smiled.

"Well..." he pocketed his hands.

"Jay-jay will be in town tonight." he added.

"Did I ask you to tell me?" she snapped.

He laughed.
"Well...I thought I should inform you...atleast before he comes to see you." he said gently.

"Coming to see me or kill me? Please o...just leave me alone." her voice was rising.

"whats making you think we are responsible for what happened to Betty?" He asked again gently.

"Question!" Edith hissed.
"Stop following me about. You've done enough damage already."
She stoped a taxi and got into it.

He, Jay-Jay and all are rubbish! She is not scared of them, they should kill her self! Mtchew!
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 12:19am On Jan 16, 2013
*********
Edith stood before JaY-Jay, she counted her toes, then she stared at them.
"You haven't answered my question...how is Betty?" jay-jay asked her.
She fastened her eyes to the ground.

"hope I'm not talking to a brick wall?" he queried

"I don't know".

Jay-jay chuckled.
"Tiger said, you told him we're responsible for what happened"
"now how could you think like that?"

Edith grimaced.

"my boys were there when it happened, the killer was a female, they could not catch her..." he swallowed hard

"I sent a word to all campuses in this federation, she must be fetched out." he stoped to look at her.

Edith was speechless.

"I'l leave you alone now, tomorrow morning you'l take me to see Betty" he concluded.
