JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
I opened my eyes and groaned at the discomfort I’m feeling,i tried sitting up but my head is pounding with headache.
I groaned loudly with my eyes closed.
I finally opened my eyes when the head ache relieved me a bit.
I took a short glance around the unfamiliar room.
This is definitely not my room…there is no mirror here and also my favorite teddy bear “Tom” which is always beside my mirror .
Damn ! Where’s this?
I finally struggled to sit up….
“Where exactly is this?” I asked rhetorically..
Just then my eyes fell on some medical instrument placed in a little tray on the shelf.
Is this an hospital?
Am i ill?
Was i involved in an accident?
I looked down at my body____im still in my school uniform and there is no blood stain on it…then what the hell am i doing here?
The door flew open as i was trying hard to remember…
I froze when i saw hi__m…him.. Bryan, and at that moment,i remembered everything in a flash.
“Arrrrgh” I groaned in annoyance as my alarm grinned loudly, almost blocking off my ears.
I picked it up from my bedside table, switched it off and threw it to only where God knows.
I yawned and rubbed my palms over my face.
I sat up on the bed and turned off the bedside lamp which have no use anymore cause it’s daylight.
I sighed annoyingly….cursing at the damn alarm.
I’m very sure i didn’t set it…it must be mum or Liam..
I rolled my big eyes tucking my hair behind my ears.
What am i supposed to do this morning and why should Mum or Liam set up my alarm when I’m still on holi…
“What !!” I exclaimed loudly..my eyeballs nearly popping out of the socket.
Today is the resumption day for grade 8.
I screamed excitedly jumping happily on my wide mattress. .
I’m not excited about today being the first day of school…I’m excited about something else..
Yeah I’m gonna tell you__i will finally get to confess my feelings confidently to Bryan…my long time crush..i don’t just have a crush on him..I love him totally.
Bryan is the most handsome teen I’ve ever seen. His jet black curly hair is the first thing to make one drool.
His face alone melts the heart of every damn girl in our school.
His black eyes are the killer…his nose is perfectly shaped and his lips__oh..my..
Bryan has been my friend since grade 7 and it was since then I’ve loved him…I love him not only because of his looks but because my heart chose him..him and him alone.
Even when i was bullied and called “fatty Mara” ,Bryan stood up for me.. yeah..i was once a fat and ugly girl with no shape…I was surprised when i became Bryan’s friend in grade 7…I’ve always had a secret crush on him since grade 6.. becoming his friend was an honor to me.
The bullying got more intense,but Bryan always stood up for me.
We are three best friends___Bryan,Ellen and i..we’ve been friends since grade 7 and only Ellen knows about my secret love for Bryan..I didn’t have the nerve to confess my love to Bryan then cause of the way i looked..I was fat and ugly but now..no guy will see me and not take a second glance..
You’re wondering how that happened right?….well that will be a story for another day.
Right now … I’m as beautiful as the stars in the night…my features are model-like,my big blue eyes stood out against my brown skin..my black hair is full and thick, my nose stood pointed..and my lips is the perfect shape of love..
Who would resist someone with those possessions.
I look forward to seeing how those bullies are gonna react at my sudden change..
I graduated from grade 7 as the “fatty Mara” but now I’m resuming grade 8 as “the most beautiful Mara” … isn’t that worth a shock?…yes it is.
Once Bryan set his eyes on me..he’s gonna ask me out without delay but he might probably be shy to do that so I’m gonna ask him out myself…
Who would resist a beautiful girl’s proposal?
All thanks to Ellen…wow i can’t wait to see her too.
I stood up from the bed and walked majestically to the mirror.
I grinned as i admired myself.
I’m gonna knock Bryan off his feet and he would gladly accept to be my boyfriend.
Why won’t he?…I did all i did just for him.
My eyes flipped to the wall clock.
“Damn…I’m running late” I muttered and scurried to my wardrobe.
I pulled it open and un-hanged my well ironed school uniform,a pink shirt with “Makers high school” inscribed all over it in black colour then a white short flay skirt with black pop-socks.
I spread it on the bed and walked back to the drawer..I pulled it open and brought out my undies.
I closed it back and crouched in front of my shoe rack.
I selected a pair of new black shoes.
I placed it on the bed beside my school uniform and picked up my pink fluffy towel.
I strode into the bathroom,then hanged my towel on the bathroom closet.
I opened the closet and picked my tooth brush with a toothpaste..
I closed it and walked over to the sink to brush my teeth.
I smiled at my reflection in the oval mirror placed on the wall behind the sink.
I brushed my teeth happily humming Sorry by Beyonce.
I finished brushing..and returned my brushing tools back into the closet.
“Should i use the jacuzzi or just shower?” I deliberated while slipping out of my pink pajamas.
Using the jacuzzi is gonna slow away my time…I’m just gonna make do with the shower.
I opened the closet and picked my pink shower cap,body sponge and a bar soap..I wore my shower cap over my head before jumping naked under the shower.
I turned on the faucet, the tiny water splashed excitedly on my skin.
I scrubbed my sponge and soap together before scrubbing it all over my body.
I bath for some minutes under the shower then;i was done…I switched off the faucet.
I don’t take long bath.
I pick up my towel from the closet then wrapped it around my body.
I dried my body with the towel as i made my way back into my room.
I picked my body lotion “de-care” and applied it smoothly on my skin.
I wore my undies,then my school shirt..I buttoned it down before slipping into my pop-socks then my short flay skirt…
I tucked the shirt into the skirt perfectly before shoving my feet into my black shoes.
I pulled off my shower cap and sat on the stool facing the mirror…I picked my hair brush and hair lotion from the shelf.
I applied some hair lotion then brush back my long silky hair, making it fall down to my back.
I’ve decided not to pack it.
I applied a little lip gloss and stood up.
I looked at my reflection in the mirror and smiled in satisfaction with my look.
I threw my phone into my backpack and flung it over my shoulders,making it drop to my back.
I stole one last glance at myself in the mirror before walking out of my room.
I climb down the marble stairs running my fingers through the stair rails.
“Yummy” I muttered as i drifted in the aroma of hamburger and coffee.
I climbed down the last flight of stairs then quickened my step towards the kitchen.
I met mum dishing out the hamburger and pouring the coffee into the coffee cup before dousing it with creamer.
She placed the hamburger and creamy coffee on a little tray then turn back to the oven.
“Come in Mara..I already perceived your scent” Mum said still backing me.
“Aaaargh…Mum,you a witch” I muttered hugging her from behind.
“Is that how to say ‘good morning’ to your mum … Silly girl” She said and i chuckled.
“Good morning mum” I greeted.
She turned pecking me on both cheeks.
“Good morning angel and .. how was your night?” She asked.
“Fine mum but did you set up that crazy alarm?” I asked whining.
“Yes angel..I did” She smiled.
“Mum” I scolded..”you know i don’t like alarms,they block off my ears” I whined.
” I wouldn’t have set it if you are one of those early risers but you are the complete opposite” She teased and i shot her a playful glare.
“Mum you should apologise for setting up the alarm without my consent” I whined.
“Okay…I’m sorry Mara and you look more beautiful this morning” She said and i smiled.
“Thanks mum… where’s Liam?” I asked.. Liam is my brother,he’s out of college and he and mum controls dad’s companies…yeah dad is dead.
“He’s in his room…he drank so much last night” mum said and i groaned rolling my eyes.
“Now take your breakfast to the dining…you are running late” Mum said.
I picked up the tray of hamburger and coffee,then walked to the dining.
I sat on the chair and placed my breakfast on the dining table..
I started eating… smiling at interval..mum is a good cook.
I was done eating in few minutes..I gulped down the remaining coffee and sighed at the way it glided down my throat.
I returned the tray to the kitchen and pecked mum goodbye.
“Good bye mum” I said rushing out of the kitchen.
“Good bye angel… I hope you are with some cash for lunch break?”
“Yes mum” I yelled loudly from the living room.
I walked out of the house and met my driver.
“Good morning Max” I greeted my driver.
“Good morning Mara” he smiled.
I opened the back door and hopped in.
Max got behind the wheels turned on the ignition and drove out of the compound.
He drove into Makers high school’s parking lot.
He applied the break and i quickly alighted from the car after waving him bye.
I walked into the school main compound.
I saw students turn to look at me in astonishment.
Yeah! Who won’t be surprised at my sudden transformation.
I adjusted my skirt and walked on in pride, smiling at the whispers i overheard.
~ OMG!…Is this not the fatty Mara.
She’s so beautiful!
Look! Her shape is damn perfect.
Gosh! Look at her straight legs…. ~
My grin grew wider when i saw my best friend Ellen,resting on the school’s pole obviously waiting for someone.
I ran to her happily and pulled her in a hug.
She disengaged quickly from the hug but i shrugged it off.
“I miss you badly” I said excitedly but she just gave a slight nod without smiling.
Is this Ellen?
“Ellen what’s wrong?” I asked…she shook her head.
“Is it your cramps?” I asked.
“No it isn’t” she said slowly.
“Are you okay?” I asked.
“Do i look like I’m not?” She retorted.
“Well…I gat enough gist for you” I said holding her hands like i normally do but she flinched and removed her hand from mine.
Now…this is getting serious!
“Ellen what’s wrong?” I asked.
“I mean…you don’t act like this,did i do anything wrong?” I asked.
“Whatever….” She scoffed.
“Ellen,i don’t remember we had any quarrel the last time you came to my house…why are you being mean to me?” I asked worriedly.
“It’s not a must we quarrel before i decide not be your friend anymore” She blurted.
Ellen is my best friend i have and loosing her means i won’t ever be myself again.
“Ellen wh…” I was saying when i noticed the girls scream slightly all looking in one direction.
I followed their gaze and;
“There he is!” I screamed inwardly.
He walked towards us, looking more handsome with his black curly hair bouncing on his forehead,his bright eyes sparkled and his spotless skin glowed, his pink lips curved in a wide smile..I saw Ellen’s face dissolve in a smile.
I ignored her and face Bryan…he has gotten to us.
My smile froze when he walked past me to Ellen,he hugged her and placed his lips on her.
Ellen kissed him back rapidly.
I don’t know how it happened…i felt a strong head ache hit me before i felt myself going down slowly with my heart ripping away from my chest…my body hit the hard floor,I felt dizzy and my eyes started closing slowly, slowly till darkness enveloped me.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
My eyes stung with tears,my body in severe pains as i stood up from the bed facing Bryan with shattered heart.
“Mara are you okay now?” He asked in those cool voice that could melt one’s heart.
He walked closer to me and supported me with his arms.
Just the feel of his body made all my pains melt away,the tears stung in my eyes disappeared abruptly just like magic.
“I had to bring you to the school’s infirmary when you suddenly fainted in the hallway..are you sure you are okay?” He asked.
“Oh… thanks” I muttered.
“Did you had your breakfast?” He asked.
“It’s only when you don’t have your breakfast that you go weak…I was planning on saying hi to Ellen my girlfriend before saying hi to Mara my bestie” he said pulling my cheeks playfully.
Tears rolled freely down my cheeks.
I began crying loud holding my chest in pain.
“Oh my God…Mara what’s wrong?” He asked wiping my tears away.
More tears came …
“Do you want to go home…are you sure you are okay?” He asked with a worried expression.
I sniffed and clean my tears away with the back of my palm.
My heart is aching!
“I’m I..m..I’m fine” I stammered looking straight into his worried eyes.
“Mara you are not fine,what’s wrong?” He asked.
“I’m fine.. seriously,i just develop an head ache” I lied in a trembling voice.
“Sorry,can you go to class now?” He asked.
“Go ahead…I will join you,i need to rinse my face” I said in the most composed voice i can mutter.
“Okay Mara but are you sure you are okay?” He asked with an unconvinced look.
“Yes i am” I said with the saddest smile.
“I couldn’t recognize you at first cause you’ve changed a lot, looking more beautiful and you are gonna gist me about the guys hitting on you” he said with a wink.
I smiled ‘sadly’ .
He walked out with a grin.
I crumbled to the floor and cried out loud in pain.
I hit the floor furiously, holding my chest with one hand.
Ellen betrayed me after pushing me into what i did.
She went ahead to date the only guy i love,the only I’ve vowed to date,the only guy who has the key to my heart .
She knew the hell I went through just for Bryan to love me.
“I’m so broken” I cried silently beating my chest furiously.
How could this stupid heart made me love,how could this damn heart betrayed me.
Why the hell do i still love Bryan even after everything.
I stopped crying when i noticed my eyes now ache,tears couldn’t flow again.
My eyes felt heavy against my face as i stood up from the floor staggering back and forth.
I steadied my wobbling legs on the ground.
I sniffed as more tears threatened to come.
I opened my backpack and brought out my phone to call Max to come pick me .
I powered it and quickly threw it hard against the wall,i heard the screen shatter.
I began crying again.
Ellen’s picture is my lock screen wallpaper,and just seeing her ex-innocent face disheartened me .
I couldn’t unlock it because Bryan’s picture is my home screen wallpaper.
They meant a lot to me,i love them so much. How could they betray me, especially Ellen who is aware of my feelings for Bryan.
Or are they playing some kinda prank on me?
No they aren’t….they are both dead serious!
How will i leave without them,they are the only friends i had all my life .
Just tell me this is a dream…
No it isn’t! It’s reality Mara but just too hard to take.
I walked towards my phone and picked it up.
The screen is shattered beyond repair and it’s not coming up again,I removed the memory card and also the Sim card,put it in a small case in my backpack,then dropped the main phone in my pocket.
I walked to the infirmary restroom to rinse my face…
Few minutes later,i was trekking the streets of Paris lost in deep thought.
Tears kept rolling down my cheeks and i kept wiping it off.
I had to lie to the security that im not feeling well and i need to go to the hospital,he asked some questions and i answered with lies before he let me through the gate.
I walked for hours and surprisingly…I found myself in front of my house gate.
I quickly wiped off my tears and knocked on the gate .
“Who is there please?” James voice sounded through the gate..he’s the gate man.
“It.. it’s..s.. Mara” I stuttered.
“Mara?” James asked unlocking the gate,he seems more surprised to find me standing there with my puffy eyes.
“Mara what’s wrong?.. school isn’t over yet,are you okay?” He asked and i nodded.
He paved way for me to come in and i did.
“Is mum in?” I asked.
“No,she went to the company with Liam” he said.
I sighed in relief…mum would have been damn worried to find me like this.
“Okay” i mumbled before walking towards the door of the main house.
I pressed the code and the door opened.
I walked in and closed the door behind me.
I realised my legs ache terribly as i walked up the stairs to my room.
I opened the door and threw my backpack to one side of the room. I stood in front of the mirror and couldn’t recognize myself.
I look at the complete opposite of Mara in the mirror.
My eyes look so puffy and red and tears streaks drew a long line down to my jaw.
I picked a wipe from the drawer and wiped my entire face.
I pulled off my school uniform, socks and shoes…I need to freshen up.
I picked up my towel and walked into the bathroom.
I stood under the shower for so long hoping the cold water will wash away my pains but damn! It didn’t.
I turned off the faucet and reached for my body towel. I tied it firmly round my body,then picked up my hair towel and wrapped it around my dripping hair .
I walked back to my room and sat on the stool facing the mirror,i examined my face .
It has lessen but my eyes still ache.
I opened the drawer and picked up my hair dryer,i plugged it in the socket beside my mirror then switched it on then began drying my hair .
I unplugged it some minutes later,my hair isn’t completely dried but im a little bit weak to continue.
I picked my teddy bear and walked to my bed.
I laid on it with a sigh then hugged Tom tightly to my chest.
“Tom…I’m heartbroken” I whispered to my teddy bear and started crying.
I found myself dozing off and I’m sure i cried myself to sleep.
I rolled my eyes at the students staring at Bryan and i as we made our way to the school’s parking lot hand in hand.
School is over for the day.
Yeah…there are gonna be stares if you are dating the school’s most handsome guy.
Damn! I’m feeling so high,all thanks to my smartness
We got to the parking lot and met our drivers waiting beside our cars.
I waved to my driver in greeting.
“Good afternoon Rollins” Bryan greeted his driver who replied with a grin.
Damn! His teeth is so yellow.
“Let’s go check on Mara at home,she doesn’t seem fine and I’ve been trying to call her but it’s not going through” Bryan said.
“Is there a need to do that?” I asked.
“Of course there is”
“She might want to be left alone” I said getting pissed.
“No we need to check on her,she doesn’t seem fine” Bryan said.
“Okay” I replied calmly so as not to unleash my brewing anger.
Why the hell does he cares so much about her!
Even after all i went through just for him to date me.
Mara is now looking so beautiful and I’m the cause of that..
I should have allowed her grow with her fatty body.
Now everyone wants her .. what the heck!
“You go home,I’m gonna ride in Bryan’s car” I said to my driver.
“Why don’t we ride separately, there is no need to ride in my car” Bryan said.
“No I’m riding with you” I said.
“Let’s go in our different cars so your driver can drop you once we leave Mara’s home” he said.
“No I’m coming with you” I insisted secretly rolling my eyes.
I hopped into his car,he hoped in beside me and his yellowed teeth driver got behind the wheels,then drove out of the parking heading to Mara’s house.
I sulked in silence and stole a glance at Bryan who is concentrated on his phone.
Damn… shouldn’t he at least speak to me!
Do Bryan like Ellen at all?
Please don’t hesitate to comment

JUST FOR LOVE
(love made her)
“Angel you’ve caught a fever” I heard mum say from my sleep.
I stirred and yawned out loud..
My head is aching seriously.
I opened my eyes to see mum sitting beside me on the bed trying to wrap the towel around my body properly.
“Mum” I called slowly..
“Angel I’ve told you to always put on something anytime you wanna sleep…what if your brother or anyone else comes in and meet you like this” She said placing her hand on my forehead.
“I was too tired to put on something mum..I was..I was” I completed my statement with tears rolling down my cheeks.
“What’s wrong? Why are you crying, James told me you arrived earlier than your closing time ” Mum said worriedly.
“Are you not feeling well?”
“Did someone hurt you?” She asked and i nodded…im not used to keeping things away from my mum.
“Do you wanna talk about it?”
“No” I muttered in tears.
“Okay..you know what you’re gonna do for me now? Please just stop crying.. please”
“I know you are hurt but do you think crying will solve it all,just look at yourself.. you’ve almost cried your eyes out and now you are burning hot ” mum said with a slight frown.
“Please stop crying” she said pulling me closer to her chest.
She patted my hair, singing gently into my ears.
That’s one of the things that normally calm my nerves anytime I’m hurt but right now it isn’t working..it isn’t damn working cause I’m in love.
“Mum..my heart aches terribly” I cried on her shoulder.
“I know, Mara. But please stop crying,it’s hurting me to see you cry.. please Mara” mum said with her deep black eyes narrowed with concern.
The tears didn’t stop and my eyes and head has begin to ache again.
“Please Mara..just stop,do you think your father will be happy to see you this way,Mara remember your last promise to him” Mum said sadly and i cleaned away my tears immediately.
I wiped them off my face completely..
Dad! I promised him… yeah i promised him.
“Good..” mum said with a smile..”You are burning hot,will you go to the hospital?” She asked.
” No” I said..I hate hospital..that terrible smell and all.
“You are running a fever,you need to g”
“I will take aspirin” I interrupted her..
She sighed and got up from my bed.
She rummaged my drawer for the aspirin.. removed two pills and handed it to me.
“Let me get you a glass cup of water” mum said walking put of my room.
I stared into space fighting the tears that were threatening to come..
I lost the fight and it came rolling down my cheeks.
I quickly wiped it off before mum entered.
“Here” mum said and handed the cup of water to me.
I threw the aspirin in my throat then gulp it down with water.
“Your friends are here to see you” mum said and i nearly choked on the water.
“Bryan and Ellen?” I asked.
“Yes of course..do you have any other friend?”
I felt my heart beating fast, almost leaping out of my chest.
The head ache i thought had gone came back with full speed.
It took all the strength in me not to cry.
Mum walked to my wardrobe.. pulled it open and selected some clothes and undies for me.
She closed it and headed back to me.
“Now get dressed and arrange your hair properly then come to the living room to meet your friends” mum said.
“No! Just tell them to leave..i don’t wanna see anyone” I said.
“Really? You don’t wanna see the people that came to check on your welfare all the way from school…what’s wrong?” Mum asked.
“I don’t wanna see anyone..they should leave” I insisted.
“Com’on angel,now get up and get dressed,come meet your friends in the living room” Mum said looking a bit surprised i could say i don’t wanna see them.
“No mum..they should leave!” I said.
“What’s wrong?” Mum asked.
“There is nothing wrong and you don’t wanna see your friends.. I’m gonna tell them to come meet you here?” Mum said already heading outside.
“No mum.. okay,i will go and see them” I said.
“Fine..I will be in the kitchen” mum said before walking out.
I sighed and stood up from the bed.
I picked up the clothes she selected for me.
A blue tank top with white knee-length skirt.
I finished dressing up,then brushed my hair before walking out of my room.
I descended the stairs down to the living room with an urge to burst into tears.
I drew in a shaky breathe when i saw Bryan and Ellen sitting on the couch.
“Hi” I said and they both faced up.
“Damn! Mara,you look like a walking dead” Bryan said before standing up.
He stood in my front,and i felt that attraction..
That freaking attraction that led me into all this!
That freaking attraction that made me fall in love!
That freaking attraction that won’t ever stop!
“How are you feeling now?” He asked placing his hands on my shoulders.
I felt my heart leap…yeah it always did anytime Bryan touches me.
“I’m fine” I sniffed.
He led me to a couch and i sat on it,he sat beside me,I saw Ellen stood up from the couch she was sitting on then come to sit beside Bryan.
I looked at her face trying to get everything straight.
Who could have believed Ellen would do this to me!
How could she!
She isn’t even considerate about my feelings!
“Mara..just talk to us,is anything wrong?” Bryan asked.
I shook my head negatively…”no,I’m not just feeling well”
“Your face is tear-streaked … Mara,you don’t cry when you are ill, what’s wrong?” Bryan asked.
“It’s nothing Bryan…I’m fine” I said.
He cupped my cheeks in his palms singing;
Fatty fatty Mara.
Running on a field,
But ended up falling flat.
With her fatty bum bouncing like a ball..
I laughed out before i could realize it.
His voice sounded terrible… Bryan’s voice is so terrible but he’s the best in drawing..
He can sketch this entire living room without any stress.
I have a lot of his drawings pasted on the wall in my room.
I stopped laughing…
How was he able to make me laugh when he’s the cause of my sadness!
“Wow.. I made you laugh,i just had to quickly compose that song and I bet my voice sounded best even better that Rihanna’s” he said proudly and i ended up laughing loud again…he joined me in the laughter.
“Bryan…I think we should go,my parents will be expecting” Ellen said and our laughter died down.
“That was the reason i said you should come with your … I want to stay longer with Mara,i can’t leave her in this mood” he said.
“But my parents will be worried” Ellen said, sending a glare across me.
“Okay,i will give you some cash to board a cab” Bryan said dipping his hands into his pocket.
“You know how much i hate cabs!” Ellen exclaimed.
“Okay then..my driver is gonna go drop you first then come back to pick me” Bryan said.
“Bryan!!” Ellen yelled angrily while he gave her a surprised look.
“Bryan,you are both free to leave,just leave with Ellen..i will be fine” I said.
“No Mara,i want to spend more time with you..just imagine,we didn’t see throughout the holiday,you didn’t even attended my house party..I’ve missed you” he said with a smile.
“I missed you too Bryan but we are gonna see in school tomorrow..you both should leave together okay..I need to rest” I said standing up.
Bryan shrugged and shot Ellen a glare..
” Wow! They aren’t even acting like they are in a relationship” I thought sadly wishing I’m in Ellen’s shoes..I’m gonna make Bryan go crazy with love.
But…that isn’t possible anymore…Bryan can’t be mine again.
I pulled Ellen into a hug,then Bryan.
“Bye” I said before running up to my room in tears.
Hey sweeties…what do ya think

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her )
(The next day)
“Mum I’m okay” i insisted for the umpteenth time at the dining.
I’m already dressed for school, having my breakfast at the dining.
“Mara,you are going with me to the hospital right now” Mum yelled.
“Mum! Seriously?…I’m fine” I yelled back.
I so much hate going to the hospital and she knows that!
“You don’t expect me to buy that when you kept on crying and burning hot since yesterday…you didn’t even eat! You are going with me to the hospital and nothing is gonna change that” Mum said.
“Mum” I called softly,i know once she makes a decision..it’s gonna be a bit hard to change it.
“Don’t call me…you are going with me to the hospital” she said firmly.
Arrrrgh… Mum can be so strict at times.
“Mum..I was only having cramps throughout yesterday but now I’m fine” I lied.
“Spare me that,i know when you’re having cramps..you are going with me to the hospital and that’s final” She said.
“But Mum…Tam isn’t a kid,she said she’s fine..just let her be. She missed the first day of resumption,do you want her to miss the second day too..you know how far the teachers would have gone…if you insist she’s going with you to the hospital then that will be after she’s back from school” Liam said and i smiled.
I know mum is gonna give in once Liam talks..
Mum looked at the both of us with a doubt and i know she has given in.
“Okay then,by the time you are back from school,if i notice you are still burning hot or crying around the house like a bush baby..then you are going with me to the hospital immediately” she said and walked back to the kitchen.
I gave Liam a ‘high-five’
Best brother on earth..Liam is so handsome,his eyes are just like my mum’s,he has perfect nose and red lips..his blonde hair is always spiky and he has a hot body…his features are just too awesome,ladies draw theirselves to him like magnet and that’s one of the things that made him a bad boy..
I hope he’s gonna change soon..
I’m glad cause he’s a bad boy with brain…Liam is so intelligent..
He always graduate with distinctions and he was the overall best in the university.
He teaches me some subjects especially mathematics whenever he’s free and i understand him better than my teacher…
My brother rocks!
“You know ..i just saved your butt from going to the hospital” he grinned.
“And so?” I asked already knowing what’s gonna come next.
“Mhmm… please don’t tell mum i hosted a party here while she was in Italy” he pleaded.
“Ohh..,I’ve already forgotten about that but thank goodness you reminded me..I’m gonna tell mum right now” I threatened jokingly.
“Com’on Tam.. please” he pleaded.
“Mum” I called.
I laughed when he placed his hands over my mouth to stop me from talking..
“Damn! Liam,do you wanna choke me” I managed to say even with his hand over my mouth.
“Okay…I’m sorry” he said releasing my mouth.
I scoffed…”I’m gonna tell mum”
“Please Tam.. okay I’m gonna get you Pizza” he said with a grin.
Pizza is my favorite but I don’t want pizza right now..I want something else.
“No” I said to Liam’s surprise.
I’ve never refused pizza.
“Then what do you want?” He asked and i smiled.
“I want a new phone,my phone is damaged” I said.
“Ohh.. okay, done!” He said .
“Really?” I asked.
“Yeah.. you are gonna meet it on your bed once you are back from school” he said with a wink.
“Awwn thanks Liam” I pecked him on both cheeks before standing up from the dining chair.
“Goodbye mum” I said from the dining room.
“Bye angel, have a nice day at school” she said from the kitchen.
I walked towards the door,then out of the house.
I greeted Max and hopped in the back seat.
I sat quietly as he drove away.
Yesterday’s thought flooded my mind.
He drove into the school’s parking lot and accelerated the brake.
I opened the door and stepped down from the car heading towards my new class grade 8,with the help of the school’s map.
Students turned to stare at me, whispering all sort of things.
I’m not in the mood to reply any of them now.
I finally got to the end of the hallway and saw a door with “Grade 8” inscribed boldly on it.
I opened the door and walked in, students were hovering about, chatting loudly.
They fell silent immediately they noticed my presence,they looked at me in astonishment.
I noticed most of the students here are new.
I’m just seeing few of my grade 7 classmates.
I ignored their looks and went about searching for the seat with my name on it.
I found it!
I sat down and hanged my bag beside the table.
I noticed everyone has turn back to their businesses.
I sighed and looked around…this class is far different from grade 7 and i don’t really like it here.
I love grade 7,the class is so wide and beautiful and my seat was beside the window, which has the garden view…I always enjoy the fresh air,the scent of flowers and all.
But this classroom is filled with new faces.
It’s quite beautiful though.. there are a lot of chairs,desks and lockers .
The whiteboard is pasted on the wall facing the whole class,there is a poster on the wall,the floor is made of marble tiles unlike Grade 7 which is normal tiles.
I looked over to the only two windows in the class,there is the sports field view.
I flinched when i felt a tap on my shoulder.
I turned to see Bryan and Ellen standing in front of me with their hands tucked together.
I waved off the threatening tears.
“Mara how are you?” Bryan asked gripping my hair like he normally does.
I nodded with a fake smile.
“Com’on Mara,this isn’t you..what’s wrong?” He asked.
You are the one who’s wrong!!
Ellen gave me a pointed look and crossed her arms over Bryan’s shoulder .
I placed my head on the desk as i felt tears rolling down my cheeks.
I cried silently.
“Mara what’s wrong…why are you crying? you can just confide in us” I heard Bryan said patting my back.
The feeling his hands gave me sent shivers down my spine.
I love Bryan so much!
How could Ellen do this to me!!
“Bryan,she doesn’t wanna tell us what’s wrong with her then let her be! She needs the tears cause tears cleans out the eye duct” I heard Ellen said and raised up my head to look her in disbelief.
Is this person putting on Ellen’s face mask?
Is this Ellen?
Ellen cares for me more than anything in the world…she can’t stand seeing me cry!
I sniffed as i dabbed my face with handkerchief.
“I’m okay” I muttered in an heavy voice.
“Mara are you sur…” Bryan was saying before the teacher walked in.
Everyone scurried over to their seats.
That was when i noticed Bryan and Ellen’s seats are beside mine.
Ellen seat is beside Bryan’s making Bryan in the middle of both of us.
I turned sideways and saw an empty desk with the name Kelly Yates.
Whoa! A newcomer is gonna join us again.
“Good morning class” she said in a rich thick voice.
She must be a new teacher.
“She’s Miss Ardsley,the new mathematics teacher” Bryan whispered to me.
“Good morning Miss Ardsley” the students chorused.
“I will like us to have a review of what we did yesterday,i need a student out here to solve this equation” Miss Ardsley said before picking a board pen.
Everyone fell silent as she wrote the so called equation on the whiteboard.
She turned back to face us and i caught a glimpse of the equation.
Liam has taught me something like this but I’m not very sure and i don’t really have a good memory of it.
“So i want a student to come out here and solve this fast,we need to move to today’s topic” Miss Ardsley said.
Everyone sat still in their seats,the class overwhelmed with tension.
Whoa! I thought she taught them this yesterday then why isn’t anyone standing up..
Bryan is capable of solving this,i don’t just know why he’s still seated.
Only that i don’t really have a good memory of it.
“Mara” I heard Ellen call loudly pointing to me..”She said she can solve it” Ellen said and my mouth dropped in shock.
Everyone turned to look at me .
“She can’t Miss Ardsley,she was absent yesterday” Bryan said giving Ellen a surprised look.
“But she just told me she can solve it,it doesn’t matter if she’s absent from school or not” Ellen said.
“Ellen!” Bryan yelled angrily.
“Okay,you told your friend you can solve it then come out … You need to hurry” Miss Ardsley said.
I stood up and walked slowly towards the board.
I picked a board pen and stared blankly at the equation with tears rolling down my cheeks.
“Miss Ardsley,i will help her solve it . She wasn’t in school yesterday” I heard Bryan said.
“Let her solve it” Miss Ardsley replied calmly.
I heard him bang the desk angrily…damn! He’s getting pissed.
“Miss Ardsley what the hell!…I just fucking told you Mara wasn’t in school yesterday…and you still went ahead in telling her to solve it…I’m gonna report you to the school authorities” Bryan yelled and began walking out of the class.
“Bryan i didn’t mean it like that,she can go to her seat I’m gonna call on another student” Miss Ardsley said after him but he didn’t stop.
“Bryan i can solve it” I called loudly.
He stopped walking and turned back to me,he walked slowly towards me.
He gave me a “really?” look and i nodded.
“Yeah…Liam once taught me” I whispered to him.
He smiled and winked at me before walking to his seat.
The students watched in astonishment whispering among themselves.
I wiped off the tears on my face,then faced the board,i gripped the board pen tightly.
I closed my eyes and concentrated for few minutes..
I remembered how Liam taught me and i began applying the method gradually till i finished solving the equation..
I dropped the board pen and walked to my seat.
The students stared at me in surprise before clapping.
I got to my seat,Bryan grinned and gave me a high-five.
I smiled and sat down slowly…
Different eyes stared admiringly at me from different direction.
I looked over at Ellen and saw her picking her fingers.
My smile faded away.
Ellen always do that whenever she’s pissed.
“Wow…you surprised me,your full name?” Miss Ardsley asked.
“Tamara Weston” I said.
“That’s very encouraging,you were absent while we were having this topic and yet you solved it perfectly”
“Thanks Miss Ardsley” I said.
“Class” Miss Ardsley called.
“Yes Miss Ardsley” everyone replied.
“Don’t you think Tamara Weston should be considered as one of the people going for the class prefect post”
“Yesssss” the class chorused loudly in excitement, clapping hard.
A wow escaped my lips.
“Fatty fatty Mara did it” Bryan whispered to me..
I laughed…I laughed louder when he began tickling me and at that moment,all my worries and tears melted away..
How was this chapter guys?…

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
I gazed at Mara worriedly as we all sat eating in the cafeteria.
I watched as she picked on her fries looking moody with tears building up in those beautiful eyes of hers.
What could be wrong?
Mara is a cheerful person.
Could she be sick?….No she’s not.
Or heartbroken?….No,no sane guy will leave her heartbroken not now she’s looking like an angel.
Or does she had a fight with Ellen?…I think so cause they both aren’t talking to each other and Ellen kept on picking on Mara in class today.
I looked over at Ellen and saw her busy with her phone, dipping fries into her mouth.
“Mara” I called.
She looked up at me with puffy eyes.
“Mara, please don’t blind those eyes with tears.. you’ve been crying repeatedly since yesterday” I said passing her my handkerchief.
She collected it and dabbed her face.
“Are you Ill? I asked.
She shook her head negatively.
“Tell me did a guy break your heart,let me just go out if here and blow off his brain” I said and she stared at me without saying a thing.
We both turned to Ellen when she laughed out loud .
“Bryan look at this” she said stretching her phone to me.
“I’m not looking at anything… Ellen what’s wrong with you, aren’t you seeing how moody Mara is?” I asked,a little bit pissed.
“Of course I’m not blind” She said flapping her lashes together.
“Why are you doing all these?” I asked.
“All what? Should i start weeping like a bush baby simply because someone is moody” She half yelled.
“Wow!” I exclaimed in surprise.
“You just called Mara someone.. It’s obvious both of you are not in talking terms but if i may ask…what caused it?”
“I just don’t want to friends with her anymore” Ellen blurted out and turned her attention back to her phone.
I gasped in shock and turned back to look at Mara who didn’t look surprised.
“Have she told you these before?” I asked Mara and she nodded.
She quickly duck a tears from rolling down her cheeks.
“Ellen did Mara offended you?” I asked surprisingly.
“As i said earlier,i just don’t want to be friends with her anymore”
Mara stood up and walked away in tears.
“Mara, Mara” I called after her.
She didn’t turn nor stopped.
“Ellen why are you doing this? How can you just decide not to be friends with her anymore without a solid reason”
“Do you have to be bothered with that?” She asked.
“Yes! If you don’t want to be friends with Mara anymore then also cut off the ties between us” I yelled and ran after Mara.
I hope he isn’t starting to develop feelings for Mara…
Well…I caused all this,i freaking caused all these…
If only i had let her remain fatty Mara who everyone hates,now she’s looking more beautiful than i..
I noticed people staring at her admiringly including Bryan who seems to like her more.
I don’t want to friends with her anymore.. isn’t that understandable!
I can’t be friends with someone who’s head over heels with my boyfriend.
Where the hell did both of them ran off to?
I stood up from the chair and started walking out from the cafeteria..
I saw Jessie fixed her gaze on me from one corner.
I hissed and walked away….
I headed straight to the school’s garden.
I sat on one of the benches and stared into space.
I don’t know why I’m so fragile, bursting into tears at every blessed minute.
How could love make me feel like this…
Just looking at Bryan made me love him more when I’m supposed to stop loving him! When he fucking went ahead to date my best friend who doesn’t even want me as a friend anymore even after betraying me.
She knows how much i love Bryan,she pushed me into what i did and even had the nerve to date someone i went through hell for .
Ellen and i talked over the phone during holiday and she didn’t mention a thing about Bryan asking her out,she even told me we shouldn’t attend Bryan’s house party and we didn’t..
How come they are now dating each other.
I coughed as i wiped off my tears with my school shirt.
My heart is in so much pain..the pain is almost tearing me apart…I can’t stop crying!
Should i blame Bryan?
He didn’t know of my feelings for him,not to talk of knowing how much i love him…he can go ahead and date anyone he likes but why does it hurt so much.
Why do i feel heartbroken?
Yeah…I’m in love!
I’m in a freaking thing called ‘love’ !!
* * *
* * *
School is over the day… students trooped out of the class in pairs..
I packed my books in my backpack and stood up, hanging it on my shoulders.
I started walking out of the class.
“Mara won’t you wait for us?” Bryan asked..I turned and saw him standing up from his seat.
“I need to go rinse my face in the restroom…I will meet you outside” I said and hurried out of the classroom heading to the restroom.
I know my face will look puffy and i have to rinse it off before getting home.
I opened the door to the restroom and walked to the sink.
I stared at my reflection in the mirror and damn! My face looks like hell.
I turned on the faucet and splashed water all over my face scrubbing and rinsing it with my hands.
I rinsed it for the last time and stared at my reflection again in the mirror.
Yes! It has gotten better… I dabbed the dots of water on my face with the handkerchief Bryan gave me.
“I’m gonna make sure,i find out about your sudden change” I heard and flinched.
Turning back,i saw Jessie. The beautiful proud bitch of Makers high school,she was one of my bullies.
“How could you graduate grade 7 as an ugly duckling and then resume grade 8 as one of the beautiful girls in school..isn’t something fishy?” She asked, letting out a wicked grin.
“That shows how jobless you are. Poking your flat nose into what doesn’t concern you” I retorted.
I smiled at the look of shock in her eyes.
Then,i will be trembling like a leaf anytime she approached me but now…I’m also surprised and happy at my sudden change.
I pushed her out of the way and walked out of the bathroom.
I walked into the school’s parking lot and met Max already waiting for me.
I looked around and there was no sight of Bryan and Ellen..
Of course the two love birds have gone!
I felt those stupid tears building up in my eyes..
I sniffed trying not to let if fall.
I greeted Max and got into the car.
He turned on the ignition and drove out.
Max drove in and parked the car under the parking shade.
I picked my backpack and alighted from the car heading into the house.
I walked in and closed the door behind me.
I gasped in surprise or rather shock when i saw mum and Liam crying.
“What’s wrong?” I screamed rushing to them..
|Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 1:29pm On Oct 22, 2019|
JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
“What’s wrong?” I screamed rushing to them.
“Mara” Mum called.
“Huh?” I answered worriedly.
“Today completes the second year your father died” she bursted out crying.
My face dissolved in a cloud of tears.
Mum hugged me together with Liam and we all cried, remembering dad.
Mum wiped our tears with the tip of her finger.
She sniffed ” Today being your father’s 2nd year remember…I want you both to do something for me”
“What mum?” We asked.
“Liam” Mum called.
“I’ve been telling you this for long but you didn’t listen,so i intentionally waited for this day..I know you will heed to my instructions as you promised your father…Liam, please i want you to stop your bad boy lifestyle..stop smoking Liam,it damages one’s health. I don’t want to lose any of you again.. please Liam stop it” Mum said.
His face changed and he sulked in confusion…
“Please Liam,for your father’s sake” Mum pleaded and i know Liam is gonna put a stop to his bad boy lifestyle.
Once mum adds ” for your father’s sake” in our conversation,then we will have no choice than to give in.
“Mum,i promise i will try to stop those habits…I promise” Liam said.
“Should i trust you to keep your promise?”
“Yes Mum…I will,for dad’s sake” Liam said.
Mum pulled him into a hug and kissed his blonde hair.
He pecked mum on both cheeks which brightened her face.
She faced me and i wonder what she’s gonna ask from me.
“Tamara” Mum called..
Wow…she called my full name.
“Uh?” I asked.
“Tamara, please my darling.. anything making you sad, crying around the house, would you please erase it off, seeing you cry burdens my heart. Just look at you, your face isn’t as bright as before.
My daughter was prettier than this,what went wrong Mara..I know heartbreak can be painful but please let go of …”
“Heartbreak?” Liam asked with a frown..Who broke your heart? I swear down I’m gonna chop off his head..is he crazy” Liam fumed.
“Com’on Liam” Mum said.
“Mara,there are a lot of guys who want you,you are not ugly and fat anymore,all thanks to Ellen whom you said gave you some procedures… Don’t cry anymore Mara,just let it go” Mum said.
“Mum…I can’t,i love him so much,my heart is in so much pain” I cried.
“Who is the guy,I’m gonna talk to him for you” Liam said.
I shook my head negatively…I’m not willing to expose Bryan’s name.
I know Liam is not gonna talk to him,he will punch his nose away from his face.
“Mara of course i understand how your heart feels,you can always love him but you don’t have to cry ,do you think i didn’t know you cried yourself to sleep last night” Mum said.
“Who the hell is this guy” Liam banged the table.
Liam has always being like that,he can’t stand me cry,he doesn’t allow anything or anyone hurt me..even when i was fat and bullied…he will always come with me to school and dared anyone to bully me.
Yeah…that’s expected of an older brother but Liam’s is exceptional.
“Liam…never mind,it’s okay” I said in a bid to calm him.
He shifted closer to me and used his shirt to clean my tears.
“Tam… don’t cry anymore okay,one crazy guy isn’t worth your tears” he said.
I nodded with a sad smile…’if only they know my best friends are the ones making me cry’
“Mara would you promise me,you won’t cry anymore?” Mum asked.
I nodded hesitantly.
“Please Mara, for you father’s sake” Mum pleaded.
Damn!…that word means a lot to us.
“Yes Mum..I won’t cry anymore for dad’s sake” I said.
Mum hugged the both of us kissing our hair.
I smiled…I love it when mum kisses my hair,it has this kinda feeling.
“Yes..you both have made me happy,now we are gonna prepare your father’s favorite dish..let’s go to the kitchen Litam ‘our sibling’s name’.
“Mum…I need to go freshen up” I said.
“Yeah i know… Liam will help me in the kitchen..go freshen up and join us soonest” Mum said, dragging the frowning Liam towards the kitchen.
I laughed… Liam is so lazy..
“The phone…on your bed” he whispered to me and i grinned giving him a thumb up..
Mum caught us…”what’s that for? Are you both planning something behind my back” she asked with a raised brow.
I chuckled and picked my backpack before running upstairs to my room.
I opened the door to my room and walked in.
I screamed in excitement when i saw an iPhone pack on my bed.
I dropped my backpack and rushed towards it.
I held the pack it in my hand looking at it admiringly.
I felt like opening it and bringing out the main phone but no! That will be after I’m done freshening up..
I dropped it gently on the bed grinning happily.
I picked my towel…pull off my shoes with my eyes not leaving the phone pack.
Damn! Mara you have to freshen up real fast.
I can’t wait to deal with this phone.
More stories @ www.chorusman.com
I pulled into my shorts and tank top after bathing..
I loosened my ponytail and let my hair flow down to my back.
I jumped on the bed and eagerly picked up the phone pack.
“Mara… lunch is ready,come to the dining” I heard mum said.
I ignored her calls and opened the phone pack..
My smile faded away when i saw my damaged phone inside the iPhone pack.
My stomach rumbled in anger and disappointment..
“Liam!!” I screamed in anger rushing out of my room.
I met him at the door laughing so hard, holding his stomach..
I hit him hard on the head.
“Ouch” he said still struggling to hold his laughter.
“Liam are you crazy” I half yelled dragging him into my room.
I closed the door behind us.
“Damn! I wonder how your face would be when you saw your damaged phone in the iPhone pack” he said laughing hard.
“Liam..this isn’t funny” I fumed.
“Chill sis,you look like one old nanny” he laughed.
I hit him and pushed him,he landed on the bed,still laughing..
I hissed…I’m also tempted to laugh but i won’t.
He jumped back to his feet.
“Okay… little sis is pissed with older bro” he said holding his laughter.
“Liam that was crazy” I yelled.
“Yeah..I know,you were expecting to see an iPhone but ended up seeing an expired phone” Liam laughed.
I also bursted out laughing.
He dipped his hand into the pocket of his jeans and brought out a golden iPhone..
I screamed excitedly, grabbing it from his hand.
It felt flat and great in my hand and wow!
It’s the latest version.
I never thought an iPhone could make me feel this way.
I now know the reason Ellen is always blabbing about hers even though hers is the old version.
I jumped on Liam hugging him happily.
He rolled me round the room in his arms.
I screamed happily..
“What are you both doing up there…lunch is getting cold” we heard mum shouted from the dining room.
We laughed…Liam dragged my hair before walking out of my room to meet mum..
I sat on the bed and powered my iPhone..
OMG…I feel so high.
I stood up from the bed when Mum yelled my name for the umpteenth time.
I used the pouch of the damaged phone to cover my iPhone.
I won’t want mum to know about it now, she’s gonna question Liam and he’s gonna be pissed at me.
I clicked on the boomplay app and list of music flowed it..
I clicked on “Till i met you” by Fallen angels and increased the volume.
I slipped into my footwear and bounced happily out of my room.. dancing to the beats of the music as i made my way down the stairs..

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
I finished my morning routine and jumped out of the bathroom in my towel, walked to where my school uniform is laid.
I started putting it on one after the other.
I was done in a matter of minutes,I sat back on the bed and picked my iPhone.
Can’t wait to show it to Bryan and probably Ellen.
“Wake up,sleepy head” I heard from my sleep.
I groaned opening my eyes slowly.
I already know it’s mum.
“Mum” I yelled.
“Shush…now get up and prepare for school it’s already 7 o’clock” she said and my eyes widened.
Damn! I quickly sat up on the bed.
“Mum you should have woken me earlier”
“And where did you keep your alarm?” She asked.
“Ohh…that?” I scratched my hair.
“Uh…I threw it off and it broke into tiny pieces” I said giving mum a one sided look.
I felt a hard knock on my head and yelped in pain.
“Mum” I yelled.
“Shut up,you broke your alarm into tiny pieces and you expect me to be your new alarm..i will get you a new one once i go shopping today..now get up” mum said.
I rubbed my forehead, getting up from the bed.
“Mum leave” I said picking up my towel.
She laughed…”no I’m staying here till you have your bath,get dressed and move to school”
“Okay,help me pick out my school uniform before I’m done bathing” I said heading into the bathroom.
“Okay son” mum said after me.
Mum finished brushing my hair and i hanged my backpack over my shoulders already dressed for school.
I winked at my reflection in the mirror before walking out of my room with Mum.
“Your dad will be back by next week” She said as we climbed down the stairs.
“Okay” I shrugged..dad doesn’t spend enough time with me so I’ve gotten used to his absence..I sometimes forget i have a father. Yeah!
“Kim…come serve Bryan his breakfast” Mum said Immediately we stepped into the dining room.
“Yes ma’am…” Kim said from the kitchen.
She’s our house help and has been working with us for years…
“Once you are done eating,meet me at the living room” Mum said.
“Okay Mum” I said.
I sat on the dining chair waiting for Kim to serve me my breakfast.
She walked into the dining room with a tray of pancake and coffee.
“Good morning Kim” I greeted.
“Morning Bryan, enjoy your breakfast” She said as she placed the tray in front of me.
I started eating a little bit fast,i love getting to school early and it seems I’m late already..
I gulped down my coffee.. wiped my mouth and stood up,i walked to the living room to meet Mum.
“Mum…I’m ready” I said.
“Okay,bye.. Ellen is already waiting outside with her driver” She said.
Can’t we just go to school separately… what have i gotten myself into!
“Okay Mum…bye” I pecked her cheeks.
“Bye darling…my greetings to Mara” She said.
I smiled…”okay mum”
Ellen and i walked into the classroom with everyone stealing glances at us.
I saw Mara looking happy as her head is bent towards something..
A white light reflected on her face.
Wait…is that a phone!
She grinned more happily still not noticing our presence.
I got to her table and tapped it gently.
She looked up and i saw the smile she wore faded away.
“What’s wrong…you were smiling just now” I said.
Ellen has went to sit on her seat, facing the window.
“Uhmm.. nothing,I’m okay and good morning” she said.
“Good morning to you also” I said sitting on my seat beside her.
“So what was making you smile?” I asked, hanging my backpack beside the table.
“Liam got an iPhone for me” She said.
“Wow.. like seriously..let me have a look” I smiled as she handed it over to me.
“Wow … It’s the latest version..Ellen, Mara has gotten a new phone” I said bringing Ellen’s attention to us.
“And what should i do about that?” She asked facing me fully.
“Ellen” I scolded.
“Okay… congratulations on your new phone, that’s what you want right?” Ellen said sarcastically.
I saw Mara placed her head on her desk and heard her sniffed.
Damn! Is she crying again.
“Mara…” I called.
She raised up her head and her face was dry which shows she didn’t cry at all.
“I thought you were crying” I said.
“Yeah…you won’t know how desperately I’m trying to hold my tears but i have to keep to a promise” She said.
“A promise…what promise?” I asked.
“I promised Mum that i will stop being sad and also not to cry on this issue anymore” She said.
“Okay can you just tell me the cause of your tears?” I asked.
I saw her face blinded with tears.
She quickly faced up to stop tears from rolling down her cheeks.
“What is that thing making you cry nonstop..just tell me” I said worriedly..
Everyone went silent as the teacher entered the classroom..
“Good morning class”
We sat in the cafeteria having our lunch break.
I ordered French fries and chicken,Bryan ordered pasta and Ellen,just a glass of juice telling Bryan she’s watching her weight.
We sat round a table in the cafeteria… students were walking about, ordering meals, eating and chatting.
I concentrated on my iPhone but i couldn’t help stealing glances at the both of them..
Bryan brought out his iPod and showed Ellen whatever!
I felt a pinch in my heart when she laughed out loud.
I eat my French fries slowly as my appetite has erased.
“Everyone listen” Jessie’s voice filled the whole Cafeteria.
Everyone kept quiet in expectation of what she’s about to say.
They all know her as the school’s bitch who bully any weakling.
“I’m curious about something” She started.
“How could someone who is fat and ugly be beautiful and fit just in the space of some months” She said.
My fork fell from my hand as i knew she was referring to me.
Everyone turned to look at me including Bryan who patted my hand.
I jerked my hand from his grip and stood up angrily.
I headed to where Jessie is standing.
I stood beside her and cleared my throat.
“If you had been this curious about your school work…I bet you would have graduated with the best grade” I said loudly to the dismay of everyone.
Some started laughing while others whispered to one another.
“I’m not fatty Mara anymore okay? You poke your flat nose into everything,it’s better you stay clear of me.. don’t try to pick on me this time cause I’m gonna make sure you regret it” I said and walked out of the cafeteria.
I heard murmurs trailing behind me as i headed to the school garden.
I sat on my favorite bench and stared at my feet..
I had unleased the anger i felt for Ellen and Bryan on Jessie..
Well…she deserved it.
I closed my eyes tightly as cool breeze blew through my hair making it fly high.
Thoughts of Bryan filled my mind..
I love him so much!
I struggled to hold the threatening tears.
I noticed the breeze suddenly stopped..I opened my eyes and saw a pair of eyes staring into mine..i screamed out in fear.
“Damn!” I said realising it’s Bryan who had started laughing.
“You get scared at every little thing” he said before sitting beside me.
“Mara…i love what you did back there in the cafeteria,you put Jessie right in her place” .
“Yeah,she deserved it” I said.
“To be sincere…I’m also curious about your sudden change,how did you go about it?” He asked.
“Ellen helped me”
“She helped you?..how?” He asked.
“I workout for days and also apply an effective facial and body lotion” I lied.
Of course i can’t tell him the main thing and i hate lieing to him but i gat no choice here.
“Wow…you mean Ellen made you do that… that’s so nice and thoughtful of her,but why is she insisting that she doesn’t wanna be friends with you anymore?”
I smiled… it’s because of you!
“I don’t also know…maybe she just planned on not talking to me for some days” I said.
“Okay…have your iPhone,you left it on the table in the cafeteria” he said stretching my phone towards me..
I muttered and ‘oh’ and collected it.
“I downloaded the video of fallen angels concert in Mexico” I said.
“Wow…let’s watch it” Bryan said excitedly.
We are both fans of the fallen angels.
I smiled and clicked on the video,we started watching it.
My heart started beating faster as he shifted closer to me.
This damn heart has always been like that.. beating every minute I’m with Bryan!
“They are so cute” I said admiringly as we watched the video.
“Yes they are…and they also have angelic voices,so perfect together” Bryan said with a smile.
I nodded and we kept on watching.
My gaze wasn’t on the video but on Bryan.
“So you think you can humiliate me in the cafeteria and go Scot free” I heard someone yelled..
I looked up to see Jessie with Ellen beside her.
Mig gave me a look to ignore her.
I did and we continued watching the video.
I suddenly felt her grab my iPhone from my hand..
She smashed it hard on the wall.
It broke into pieces.
Bryan gasp beside me.
My stomach rumbled with anger as i slowly stood up from the bench,i tried hard to resist the tears that has formed in my eyes.
I marched towards her grabbed her by her shirt sending two slaps on her cheeks before pushing her on the grass…..

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
Damn! where did she got that strength from.
Everyone watched as Mara beat up Jessie in the garden.
Can’t Jessie freaking stand up and deal with her!
She just laid there screaming like an enstrangled puppy.
I loved the way Mara’s new iPhone was smashed on the wall.
She can’t be using something greater than mine.
That damn iPhone is the latest version and im sure her brother got it for her.
I’m pissed at mum..if only she had bought the latest version for me.
I watched as Bryan is trying to separate Mara from Jessie.
He’s crazy! He walked out of the cafeteria immediately Mara left.
I was infuriated when i saw them both in the garden laughing and watching whatever on her damn iPhone.
“Ellen, come talk to Mara to leave Jessie alone,she will listen to you” Bryan said rushing towards me.
“Please Ellen,Mara is gonna injure Jessie. No one is willing to separate them from each other…I’ve tried to,but i can’t.. please Ellen,you know she’s gonna listen to you” He pleaded.
“They should hurt theirselves…to hell i care!” I said and walked away.
Jessie should be the one beating Mara.
She’s such a weakling!!
I sighed as i watched Ellen walk away.
I turned back to see Mara still beating the screaming Jessie.
I forcefully dragged her up making Jessie took to her race.
She ran out of the garden with the students running after her, singing a mocking song.
I saw Mara cleaned her tears as she bent slowly and picked the broken iPhone.
She sniffed before standing to her feet.
“Mara…” I called.
She turned to me,that was when i saw how red her eyes had turned.
Damn! Liam just got the iPhone for her yesterday..
Of course she will be so pained.
“Sorry Mara,i know you are so hurt she smashed your iPhone” I said.
She cried as she sat back on the bench.
“Li-a-m ju-st got t-he i-pho-ne fo-r me yes-te-rday” She whispered amidst tears.
“Yeah i know… Sorry” I said feeling truly sorry for her.
I cleaned her tears and made her rest her head on my shoulder.
I stroke her hair and sang “Till i met you” by Fallen angels to her ears..
That’s her favorite song.
She raised up her head and smiled after i was done singing..
Wow! I’m glad it worked!
I smiled back at her holding a handful of her hair in my hand..
She has a soft silky hair which i love to touch.
“Thanks Bryan,for making me smile even if your voice sounded terrible” she laughed.
“Im glad i made you smile” I said.
She nodded ” I just don’t know how to break this down to Liam..he will be so pissed and will come to confront Jessie”
“I’m gonna get another one for you” I said.
“No..no,you don’t have to” she said.
“I want to, I will get you another one and I’m gonna make sure it’s the same color as this” I said with a smile.
“Thanks Bryan I appreciate but never mind..Liam can still get another one for me” She said.
“So you want Liam to know about this broken phone,then you should consider Jessie in a mess cause he’s not gonna take it easy on her” I said.
She nodded…” I don’t want Jessie hurt but nevermind…I can stay off phone for some time”
“And what if Liam ask of it?”
“Mhmm…I’m gonna tell him it’s with Ellen,that we exchanged phone for the night” she said.
“Mara,you can’t keep telling him that forever” I said.
She nodded…”The iPhone costs a lot,i don’t want it to drain your bank account”
I laughed…”Drain my bank account?… Mara,you know me more than this,you know how much i control..just let me get it for you.. please” I said.
“Okay fine.. thanks so much” She said.
“It’s nothing…I’m glad i will be doing that for you,so should we go to get it after school or…” I said.
“No…let’s go get it tomorrow after school,i need to get home early today” She said.
“Okay.. fine” I said..
“Let’s go back to the class… lunch break is over… Mrs Hampton is gonna roll her big ugly eyes and yell at us” She said and took my hand.
I laughed as we both ran to the class.
(School is over )
Students trooped out of the class chattering loudly.
I gazed at Bryan who is already packing up his backpack.
I smiled…he made me happy today.
When he placed my head on his shoulder in the garden..I felt myself floating high in the sky.
Even his terrible voice sounded angel-like to me.
“Quit staring…let’s go” Bryan said and i flinched out of my thoughts looking embarrassed.
I looked over at Ellen and saw her still seated.
“Is Ellen not coming with you?” I asked.
“Oh..she is, Ellen let’s go home” He said to her.
“I’m not ready to leave” she said.
“Com’on Ellen, school is over!” Bryan said.
“I said I’m not ready to leave…you can leave with the female Mike Tyson” She yelled.
“Bryan…I have to be on my way,i need to get home early today” I said.
He nodded and waved me bye.
I waved back and headed out if the class.
I walked downstairs to the school’s parking lot only to realise Max isn’t here yet.
Damn! Where is he?
I gat no phone to put a call across him.
I sighed and rested my back on the wall.
“I will make you regret what you did to me…and trust me,that secret behind your sudden change…im gonna make sure i reveal it to the world” Jessie spat before hurrying to her car.
I stood still not knowing what to say.
What should i say?
“Mara” I heard Bryan called loudly.
I turned and saw him walking towards me.
“Liam just called me now,he said you should board a cab home…Max is sick and has been taken to the hospital” he said.
“Oh my God! Max is sick?…but he dropped me here in the morning” I said worriedly.
“Yeah… come with me,I’m gonna drop you home” he said.
I wanted to resist at first but dropped the idea.
“What of Ellen?” I asked as we walked to where his driver is.
“She’s still in the class”
“Won’t she go home?” I asked.
“She feels like staying in school for a while” Bryan replied.
“Good afternoon Rollins” Bryan and i greeted his driver.
“Afternoon students” he replied with a grin.
“Rollins…we are gonna drop Mara off,you still remember her house right?” He asked.
“Of course i do but Mara has changed a lot,she does not look fat anymore” Rollins said in amusement.
“Yeah…can we leave?” Bryan asked.
“Of course yes … Get into the car” Rollins smiled walking to the driver’s seat.
Bryan opened the car door…we were about to hop in.
“I’m coming with you!” I heard Ellen say behind us.
We turned to see her walking towards us.
“Ellen,your driver is over there waiting for you” Bryan said.
“I’m not going with him! I’m coming with you…Hey leave!” She yelled at her driver who quickly got behind the wheels and drove away.

“Mara,you can sit at the front seat” he said to me.
I nodded and opened the door to the front seat.
“You mean you are gonna allow her seat there while your girlfriend is gonna sit at the back! that isn’t happening” Ellen said.
“Okay Mara..I’m sorry,come sit with me at the back. Let Ellen take the front seat” Bryan said.
“So she’s gonna sit beside you at the while your girlfriend will sit alone in the front seat…that isn’t happening” She said.
“Ellen what the hell do you want then?” Bryan yelled.
“I don’t want her to come with us”Ellen said.
I sighed and stepped back…I already know this is where she’s coming to.
“Ellen like seriously?you don’t want Mara to come with us? What the hell!”
“She isn’t coming with us, except if you wanna separate a serious fight in that car…im not as weak as Jessie” Ellen retorted sending me a glare…
“Mara is coming with us,you can go board a cab. I don’t care..Mara come in” Bryan said to me.
I shook my head staying back.
“Thanks Bryan…I’m gonna board a cab” I said.
“No Mara,you are coming with me.. com’on” he said.
“She isn’t stepping her feet into this car!”Ellen yelled.
“Ellen this isn’t your car!” Bryan yelled back .
Damn!! What the hell is going on.
“I will get going Bryan..bye” I said and began walking to the school’s gate.
I heard Bryan calling me but i can’t respond.
The gate keeper opened the gate and i stepped out… fresh air blowing wildly.
I walked a bit and stopped at a place i can easily board a cab.
I can’t believe Ellen can be treating me this way.
I can’t remember if i offend her or something.
She’s dating Bryan!
She doesn’t wanna be friends with me anymore!
There must be something wrong somewhere..
How could all this be happening at the same time!
I saw a cab approaching and quickly waved it to stop.
I got in.
“Lington estate,phase 3” I said..
He nodded and started driving.
I alighted from the cab and paid him his charges.
I knocked on our gate.
“Please who is there?”
“Mara” I said.
James opened the gate and i walked in.
“Good afternoon James” I greeted.
“Afternoon Mara…Max is in the hospital” he said.
“Yeah…I heard that…I hope it isn’t very serious?” I asked.
“I can’t say” James said sadly.
Max is his buddy.
“He’s gonna get well soon” I said reassuringly before heading inside.
I opened the door and walked into the living room.
I met Liam on the couch playing a video game.
“Hey…” I greeted.
He dropped the game controller and faced me.
“Mara i called you but it keep saying switched off…that iPhone doesn’t just go off like that.. what’s wrong?” He asked.
I forced a smile and cleared my throat.
“Really?… yeah,i switched it off..I don’t want it to disturb me in class” I lied.
I should have thought of lies before arriving home.
“You never switch off your phone…you either set it on silence or vibration… okay where is it?” He asked.
My throat tightened…
“Uh…I exchanged it with Ellen”
“You exchanged it with Ellen?…I called Ellen but she didn’t pick up,and that was why i called Bryan…he told me you and Ellen are not in talking terms” Liam said.
I faked a chuckle “We’ve settled it all”
“Really? … okay…can i see Ellen’s phone?”

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
“Goodbye love” Ellen said alighting from my car.
“Com’on are you still pissed at me,i already apologized to you” she said with a smirk.
“I’m not the one you should apologise to… apologise to Mara” I said.
“Really?…I should apologise to Mara! No i can’t” She said.
“Okay bye” I said.
“Com’on Bryan… okay i will” she said with a smile.
“Yeah i will, trust me babe” She said.
I pecked her on both cheeks before she finally alighted.
Rollins shook his head and drove off..
“Rollins drive me to the phone slot” I said and he nodded.
“Okay…i want to see Ellen’s phone” Liam said.
Sweat poured from my forehead and i slipped my backpack from my shoulder pretending to be searching for it.
I heard the door opened and turned..
“Mum” I said rushing to pull her in a hug.
She smiled and touched my cheeks slightly.
“I hope there wasn’t a problem in boarding the cab?” She asked.
“No mum and how’s Max?” I asked.
“He’s getting better…the doctor diagnosed shortage of blood,I’ve paid for the treatment and he’s gonna be discharged a day after tomorrow”
“Who is gonna be taking me to school?” I asked.
“Put a call through Ellen to come pick you up tomorrow morning,you know how much Liam hates driving” Mum said sitting on a couch.
Ellen!! She won’t even pick up my call.
Liam has resumed his video game…I’m so glad he has forgotten about the phone.
“I will board a cab” I said.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes mum…i need to go freshen up now” I said picking up my backpack.
I ran upstairs to my room.
“Liam…are your lips pasted together to greet” I heard mum yell at Liam.
I chuckled and entered my room closing the door behind me..
I dropped my bag and sat on the bed with a sigh.
I started pulling off my shoes and pop-socks .
I wish i had stopped Jessie from smashing the phone.
Now it’s gone!
Bryan is gonna get another one for me tomorrow.
I smiled remembering how i has rested my head on his shoulder in the garden .
That was the best feeling ever!
If only..if only,i can get him to date me.
It’s too late…he’s already into Ellen even if the both of them doesn’t act like they are dating or something.
Did they meet during the holiday or what?
I don’t seem to understand anymore…
How did they started dating all of a sudden…
Ellen never told me she likes Bryan and Bryan also never told me he likes Ellen so how did all these came about?
Well…I’m gonna ask Bryan tomorrow.
I stood up from my bed and picked up my towel.
I headed to the bathroom.
I stepped out of the bathroom and drying my body with the towel.
I just realised I’m starving…
I quickly picked a pink mini gown from the wardrobe,new set of undies from the drawer.
I put it on and combed my hair ,i selected a pink hair band…I packed it into a ponytail and slipped into my footwear.
I walked out of my room and climbed down the stairs to the kitchen.
I opened the fridge and brought out a chilled orange juice with a glass cup.
I rinsed the glass cup in the sink before pouring the orange juice in it.
I gulped down the entire juice in the glass cup before reaching for the cookies.
I munched it with my eyes closed, savouring the taste.
I poured juice into the glass cup and sipped it with the cookies.
I ate the cookies to my fill before stopping.
I rinsed the glass cup and put it back in it’s place.
I covered the remaining orange juice tightly and put it back in the fridge.
“Ahhh…I’m filled up” I groaned as i walked to the living room.
I met mum and Liam watching a kdrama.
“Title?” I asked sitting beside Liam.
“Fatty Tam” he said with a chuckle.
I frowned before hitting him hard on the back.
“Ouch… your hands are just like steel” he said.
“Thank you” I said concentrating on the movie.
“Fatty fatty Tam,fat,fat,fat” Liam sang quietly to my ear before laughing.
“You’ve started again” I said getting up from the couch.
He dragged me back grinning like a jolly panda.
“Okay okay…I won’t tease you anymore” he said.
“Liam you are gonna tutor me on more mathematics subject” I said.
“Really?… this is the first time you are willing to learn… nice change but I’m gonna charge you for it” he said.
I laughed…”like seriously?”
“Yeah…do you want to know what the charges is?” He asked.
“Okay what?” I asked.
“Go into the kitchen and make me pasta with chicken” he said.
“Ahhh…I can’t. I also had cookies and juice cause i was feeling lazy to cook” I said with a frown.
“Okay…it’s okay,forget the tutoring then” he said and faced the movie.
“Liam” I called.
He didn’t answer.
“Okay i will help you prepare it” I said.
He turned to me with a smile.
“Go make it fast … I’m starving” He grinned.
I felt like knocking off his head but i restrained myself.
I huffed and stood up.
“Mum do you care for some pasta and chicken?” I asked.
“Of course but get me a glass cup of water first” She said,her eyes not leaving the movie..
Mum loves kdrama a lot.
I walked to the kitchen,took a little tray from the shelf.
I placed a glass cup with a bottle of chilled water on it.
I carried it to the living room and placed it in front of mum.
I walked back to the kitchen,i wore and apron with hair net before rinsing my hands in the sink.
I dried it and reached for the frozen chicken in the freezer.
I’m gonna boil and fry the chicken first before making pasta.
I brought out the required utensils and ingredients before i started cooking.
“Lunch is ready” I said loudly from the dining room.
I’ve dished out the pasta and chicken on the dining.
I walked back to the kitchen and pulled off my apron and hair net.
I hanged it neatly in it’s position before heading back to the dining.
Mum and Liam are already seated..
I took a seat and we started eating.
“Yummy” Liam said with a mouthful.
“Yeah…Liam you are the one to make dinner” Mum said.
“Mum! I can’t” He said,his face already pulled into a frown.
I laughed inwardly.
“I want you to make dinner” mum insisted.
“Why don’t we employ a cook?” Liam asked.
“A cook? Hell no!” Mum said.
Mum and dad never liked the idea of employing anyone to work in our house..
We do everything ourself and it’s so frustrating!
We continued eating in silence….
“I want more” Liam whispered to me..
I looked into his plate only to find it empty.
“If you want more,go get it in the kitchen” I said loudly to the hearing of mum who eyed the both of us.
“Table manners” She said.
We nodded…I resumed my meal while Liam stood up and went into the kitchen.
So lazy! But loves food a lot.
I plopped on my bed with a tired sigh.
I yawned closing my eyes.
I need to take a nap
I walked down the stairs fully dressed for school.
I descended the last flight of stairs and headed to the kitchen.
I met mum dishing out hamburger and cappuccino…
“Good morning Mum” I greeted.
“Good morning Mara, how was your night?”
“Okay…come take your breakfast to the dining” She said.
I picked up the tray containing my breakfast, muttered ‘thanks’ before walking to the dining room.
I sat on the dining chair and began eating my breakfast.
“Bryan is here” I heard Liam said behind me.
I turned back and surprisingly i saw Bryan.
“Bryan…what are you doing here?” I asked.
“I called him to come,i don’t want you to board a cab” Liam said.
“But Liam…why would you do that,I’m okay with cab” I said knowing how Ellen is gonna react to this.
“What’s wrong,are you both not in talking terms?…cause this isn’t the first time I’m calling Bryan to pick you” Liam said.
“It’s not that but….”
“But what?” Liam asked.
“Nothing… okay i will go with him” I said.
“Like you have a choice” Bryan said.
I sent him a glare,he chuckled.
“Ohh… Bryan is here” Mum said walking out from the kitchen.
“Good morning Mum” Bryan greeted.
“Morning darling..do you care for hamburger and cappuccino?”
“No mum,i rushed here with my driver after having my breakfast” He said.
“Alright then… how’s your Mum?”
“Okay let’s get going…I’m done with my breakfast” I said standing up.
I adjusted my skirt and smiled.
“Goodbye mum” Bryan and i said.
“Goodbye darlings…have a nice day at school”.
We headed outside the house…
“Good morning Rollins” I greeted Bryan’s driver who nodded with a smile.
We got in the car.
“I have something for you” Bryan said on our way to school.
“Really?..what?” I asked.
He smiled and opened his backpack,he hesitated before bringing out my iPhone…
No it’s not mine…it’s the exact color of mine..
“Have it…it’s for you” He said stretching the phone.
“Oh…my… God” I screamed hugging him tightly.
“Thanks so much Bryan, thank you,thank you,thank you” I said happily checking out the phone which is the exact replica of the smashed one.
“How did you find the exact color?” I asked.
“I showed them the piece of the broken phone and they got the exact version and color for me… Liam is not gonna suspect a thing” He said.
“Yeah… thanks so much Bryan,i hope it wasn’t too costly?” I asked.
“Of course it isn’t…I’m glad you like it” he said.
“Yeah i do” I powered it and saw my picture already saved as the wall paper.
I looked over to Bryan who grinned.
“How did you do this?” I asked in amusement.
“Well…I inserted your old memory card and sim card into it and all your pictures, music, videos and all popped up” he said.
“Wow… thanks so much Bryan,i really appreciate this…you don’t know how happy i am” I said excitedly scrolling through the menu.
I didn’t realise Rollins has pulled into the school’s parking lot until Bryan tapped me gently.
“Mara…we are in school” he said.
“Yeah,you were so engrossed in your phone” he said.
I smiled..we both picked our backpacks and alighted from the car.
We waved Rollins bye before heading to our class..
The class went silent as we walked in.
They looked at us admiringly as we walked to our seat.
Ellen isn’t in school yet … Thank goodness!
We sat down,i picked my new iPhone and started from where i stopped in the car.
I so much love this phone.
“iPhone lover” Bryan whispered to me.
I smiled…”iPod lover” i said.
Ellen walked into the class heading straight to her seat which is beside ours.
I’ve missed her company…why is Ellen behaving this way?
I felt my stomach twitch,my iPhone nearly dropping from my hand when Ellen bent and kissed Bryan who reciprocated.
I quickly bent my head on the desk and sniffed.
I remained that way for some minutes before raising up my head.
I noticed the class had gone silent.
Mrs Ardsley stood in front of the class with a new student beside her.
Wow…he’s so cute…but not as cute as Bryan.
The girls flashed bright smiles sitting with their legs crossed.
I looked at Bryan and saw him smiling.
He caught my gaze..
“The new guy is cute right?” He Said.
“Yeah but not as cute as you” I blurted out.
“Yes” I said.
“Wow… thanks,i gat the best bestie” he said holding a handful of my hair in his hand.
He loves doing that and i also love that feeling it always gave me.
I love Bryan so much.
“Okay… good morning class” Mrs Ardsley said.
“Good morning Mrs Ardsley”
“We gat a new student among us.. please introduce yourself..” she said to the guy,who nodded smiling brightly.
Damn! He gat dimple.
“Hi everyone…I’m Kelly Yates,nice meeting you all” he said with a little bow..
Oh…he’s the one who owns this empty seat beside mine.
I chuckled as i saw how the girls were already trying to get his attention.
“You can move to your desk Kelly..class i will be back for our morning class” Miss Ardsley said walking out of the classroom.
Kelly walked to his seat which is beside mine.
I turned to Bryan and caught him staring at me.
“What?” I asked.
“Nothing” he said with a shrug.
“Okay…” I said.
“Mara look…Fallen angels are organizing their concert here in Paris next month” Bryan said to me showing me the news on his iPod..
I screamed happily and quickly comported myself when i noticed the whole class was starting at me.
“Oh..my..God… Bryan we must attend the concert” I said excitedly.
“Yes we must…I will go get our tickets after school” he said.
“High-five bestie” I said happily.
We exchanged high fives and giggled.
“Seriously i don’t understand this… Bryan how could you think of going to that concert with her when I’m here” Ellen said.
“But Ellen,you said you don’t like fallen angels…you are not their fans so i don’t see the reason why you should want to go to their concert” Bryan said.
“Okay..but I’m going with you” Ellen said.
“Your choice” Bryan replied.
“Hi” I heard a cool voice said beside me.
I know it’s the new guy’s voice but how could i be sure I’m the one he’s referring to.
“Hey” Ellen replied him with a small wave and a little smile.
“I’m sorry…you aren’t the one I’m referring to” He said to her and i almost bursted into laughter.
“Hi” he said again.
“Mara…the new guy is referring to you” Bryan said.
I turned to him..
He looks cuter on a closer look with brown spiky air,big blue eyes,pointed nose with a small round lips..he also gat a nice body.
He can’t be compared anywhere to Bryan but everyone is fine in their own way.
“Hi…I’m Kelly” he said with a smile making his dimple appear.
“I’m Tamara and here is my best friend Bryan” I said.
“Hi Bryan” Kelly said with a smile.
“Hey Kelly…how are you?” Bryan said nicely.
“I’m fine Bryan”
“Welcome to Makers high school…if you won’t mind,Mara and i will show you round the school during lunch break” Bryan.
“Wow… of course i don’t mind.. thanks Bryan you are so friendly,can we be friends?” Kelly asked Bryan who nodded eagerly.
“Of course…we are already friends” he said.
They both shook hands and smiled at each other.
It’s so sure their friendship is gonna be great!
“Okay … Tamara,can we also be friends?” Kelly asked.
I looked at Bryan who nudged me to say yes.
“Yes Kelly,we can be friends” I replied with a smile.
“Wow … I can’t believe i gat two new friends on my first day at school” Kelly said.
“Yeah” we smiled.
“I heard you talking about fallen angels, are you guys also their fans?” Kelly asked.
“Yes we are” I said.
“Wow…I’m also a fan” he said.
“Really?” Bryan and I asked together.
“Yeah…” He said.
Mrs Hampton came in..
“Shush… don’t talk anymore,if not she’s gonna roll her big ugly eyes and send us out of the class” I said.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
Bryan, Kelly and i entered the cafeteria after showing Kelly round the school.
Damn! The stares were too much.
“I’m starving” I muttered as we sat round a table.
I saw Ellen pick up her tray of meal, coming to join us.
“Bryan…” She called sitting down with us.
“Where have you been? I’ve been waiting for you so we can have lunch together” She said.
“I’m sorry Ellen,we showed Kelly round the school” Bryan said.
“Okay” she said and started eating.
“Ellen” I called.
“Huh?” She fumed.
“Meet Kelly,he has become part of us” I said and saw her face brightened up.
“Wait…is she your friend?” Kelly asked.
“Yeah. She,Bryan and i are best of friends so there is no how you wanna be friends with us and won’t be friends with her” I said.
“Wow…nice to meet you Ellen,so can we be friends?” Kelly asked.
“Yes!” Ellen suddenly screamed to everyone’s amazement.
Wow! Is there more to this.
“Huh… Sorry,that just came out as a scream” She smiled.
“It’s okay…we should order our own lunch” Kelly said.
“Mara what do you care for?” Bryan asked..
“Normal” I said.
He nodded and stood up with Kelly.
They both walked away to order lunch leaving Ellen and i.
She concentrated more on her lunch.
“Ellen,you really hurt me” I said making her turn to me.
“Hurt you? How?” She asked..
“Don’t pretend you don’t know what you did.. that was cruel of you” I said.
She laughed ” You are still on Bryan’s issue,you have to let it go cause Bryan is all mine now and forever” She said.
“You know how much i love Bryan,you know what i did just for Bryan to love me and yet you went ahead to date him!” I said starting to tear up.
“You are talking like it’s my fault” she retorted.
“Whose fault is it then?” I asked.
“Hey girls” Bryan said interrupting the conversation.
I braced up and forced a smile.
He placed a tray of French fries and chicken in front of me.
“Thanks Bryan” I smiled.
“Like it’s the first time I’m doing this” He said.
They both sat down and I can see Kelly ordered the same thing as Bryan…Pizza rolls.
Are they starting to get twinie now I hope not!
We started eating,i didn’t realize i was starving this much.
I finished my fries and chicken and had to dip my fork into Bryan’s meal.
“Get out!” He said holding his meal away, not allowing me to reach it.
I chuckled…” Bryan!”
“Don’t tell me you are starting to become a food monger” he said with a fake frown which made me laugh.
“You were the one who didn’t allow me to finish my breakfast” I said.
“No,you didn’t finish it yourself. When i came you were like ‘who’s this cute guy’ I was so breathtaking that you forgot to finish your breakfast” Bryan teased making me laugh more.
“Okay,for being so breathtaking and not allowing me to finish my breakfast,I’m gonna have a bite of your pizza rolls” I said reaching for his meal.
He kept moving it away from my reach making me laugh.
“What the Bleep! Bryan,do you mean you were the one who picked her up in the morning?” Ellen suddenly asked making my laughter fade away.
“Yeah…i was the one and I’m also gonna be the one to drop her off” Bryan said with a note of finality daring Ellen to object.
She hissed and stood up with force, walking out of the cafeteria.
“I thought you said she was your friend?” I heard Kelly asked,and that was when i noticed he was here with us.
“Yeah she is…she is our friend,she’s going through some things now so that explains her behavior” I said.
He nodded with an “Oh”
I turned back to Bryan who is eating his meal at an arm length.
“Bryan com’on,let me have a bite please” I said..
“No…I’m not giving you” He grinned.
“Aaaargh! so stingy” I said hitting my fork on his head.
“Ouch” he rubbed his head.
I stick out my tongue and sat down, sending him a wicked grin.
“I actually wanted to give you but you just hit that fork on my forehead so forget it” He said.
“Awwn..How would i have known you wanted to give me… Okay Sorry,let me have some” I said with a pout.
“No..” he said with a mouthful of pizza.
I rested my chin on my palms looking at the movement of his mouth.
“So yummy” he said holding a pizza roll in my face before putting it in his mouth.
“You can have mine” Kelly said shifting his plate of pizza rolls to me.
“No..I’m okay, don’t bother” I said.
He smiled… “You can have it…I’m filled up anyways”
“Thanks Kelly but seriously,I’m okay” I said.
“I insist” he said.
Bryan suddenly stuffed a pizza roll from his plate into my opened mouth.
“I won’t say thank you” I said to him with a mouthful.
“I don’t need your thanks,fatty Mara” He said with a chuckle.
“I think you want another hit on your forehead” I said already picking up my fork.
“Okay I’m sorry” he quickly pleaded before the fork could land on his forehead.
I smiled “good boy”.
I heard a little sound,i turned to Kelly to see him shifting his plate of pizza rolls back to himself.
I saw a cut on his upper arm but he quickly pulled down the sleeve of his shirt.
What’s that cut about?…Well,just normal injury.
His face is down like he’s not happy or something.
I felt a little bit sorry for him but I just can’t take anything from him for now!
The time keeper signalled “Lunch break over” by turning off the lights in the cafeteria.
Everyone stood up from their table and headed to their classes.
Bryan and Ellen walked in front while Kelly and i walked at the back to the school’s parking lot where different cars,bus and vans are waiting.
Students walked around, pushing their way past us.
We finally got to where Rollins is standing beside Bryan’s car.
“Good afternoon Rollins” We greeted.
“Afternoon students, this face is new” He said pointing to Kelly .
“He’s our new friend” Bryan said bringing Kelly forward.
It seems Bryan likes Kelly a lot.
“Hi Rollins…I’m Kelly” He said.
“Kelly how are you?” Rollins asked nicely.
“I’m fine Rollins” he answered.
“Alright.. Bryan and Mara should get in.. Kelly i guess your driver is here” Rollins said.
“Yes he is over there” Kelly said waving at a man who stood beside a white Lamborghini.
The man waved back.
Ellen stepped forward holding the handle of Bryan’s car, about getting in.
“Ellen is your driver not here?” Bryan asked.
“I told him not to come” She said.
“I want you to drop me off” She said..
“Okay no problem with that,but Mara is also coming with us .. if you are gonna argue over that you can go board a cab” Bryan said to her firmly…
She glared at me before getting into the car.
“Bryan…I think i should just board a cab” I said.
“No way!” Bryan said.
“I will be fine with cab… seriously” I said.
“No Mara…Liam doesn’t want you to board cab and I promised him i will pick and drop you off till your driver is able” Bryan said.
“I don’t want Ellen pulling my hair off during the middle of the ride home” I said.
“Will you come with me in my car then?” Kelly asked.
“No thanks…I will go with Bryan” I said.
I quickly got in the front seat while Bryan got in the back seat with Ellen.
Rollins got behind the wheels and began driving out of the school compound.
We waved Kelly goodbye but he stood there watching us leave with a not too happy expression.
“No you are dropping off Mara first!” Ellen yelled from the backseat.
I should have just gone with the cab or maybe Kelly’s car.
“But Ellen we are right in front of your house!” Bryan yelled back.
“You should have told your yellowed-teeth driver to drop her off first” Ellen said.
My gaze shifted to Rollins who shook his head with a sigh.
Initially, Ellen was a rude girl but she wasn’t this worst!
“Do you mean we have to go drop off Mara,then come back here to drop you off,do you know how far Mara’s house is from here!” Bryan said.
“I don’t care! All i know is I’m not getting off first!” Ellen said.
“I’m getting off,i will take a cab from here” I said unfastening my seat belt.
I quickly got out of the car before Bryan could stop me.
I waved a coming cab but it didnt stop..it sped past me.
“Mara” Bryan called already alighting from his car.
I walked farther away and just then i sighted a familiar white Lamborghini speeding towards me..
Oh! Kelly’s car…
Bryan has almost gotten to me …
“Mara wait” he shouted.
I waved Kelly’s car to a stop.
It stopped and i quickly got in.
I’m glad the driver drove off immediately.
“Tamara what’s wrong?” Kelly asked beside me.
I faked a smile… ” We planned to spend some time at Ellen’s house but mum just called me now and told me to start coming home” I lied.
“Oh… okay, what’s your address so Leo can know where to drop you”
“Ohh…Good afternoon Leo” i greeted.
“Good afternoon tamara” He replied.
” I will be dropping at Lington estate phase 3″ I said.
Silence filled the car and my mind raced back to Bryan..I know i shouldn’t have left him like that but i had no choice.
“So Tamara,tell me more about Makers high school” Kelly said breaking the silence.
I smiled…I love talking about my school a lot.
“Makers high school should be described as one of the best schools in Paris….
I smiled as i alighted from Kelly’s car.
“Thanks for the ride” I said.
“You are welcome Tamara…it’s nice having you in the car with me” He smiled.
“See you tomorrow…bye” I waved at him.
“Bye” he waved back before Leo drove off..
I smiled and turned back only to bump into Bryan.
“Damn! Bryan why do you like scaring my ass off” I said.
“Mara,Why did you leave like that?” He asked.
“Because i had to! Ellen won’t get off if i don’t” I said.
“You should have at least answered my calls instead of getting into a stranger’s car” He said.
“It’s Kelly’s car and Kelly is not a stranger to us,i didn’t want to get in at first but i had no choice..” I said.
“Ohh…that was Kelly’s car?” Bryan asked.
“Yeah it was” I said.
“Okay i didn’t know” he said.
We both stood there staring at each other..
My heart couldn’t stop accelerating as i stared into Bryan’s eyes.
That feeling arose and i felt myself wanting him more than ever.
The feeling i have for Bryan is indescribable…I love him so much!
Does this mean Bryan is starting to like me or probably having feelings for me?
I jolted out of my thoughts when Bryan cleared his throat.
“Are you starting to grow grey hair?” Bryan asked picking out a strand from my hair.
‘Damn! He was looking at my hair all this while and i was thinking otherwise, thinking he’s probably having feelings for me’ I thought and nearly cried.
“It’s just a strand” I said looking at the tiny grey hair in his hand.
When did i started growing grey hair?
Well…i hope it’s normal.
The gate opened..
Liam stepped out.
“Good afternoon Liam” Bryan greeted.
“What’s up B?” Liam said patting Bryan’s back.
“I’m fine bro” Bryan smiled.
“So you both have been outside… we’ve been expecting you,i was about coming over to your school” He said.
“How’s Max?” I asked.
“He will be discharged tomorrow but he won’t drive for a week or two” Liam said.
“Really?” I asked.
“So who’s gonna be driving me to school and back to the house?” I asked.
“Bryan will. Bryan won’t you?” Liam asked.
“Of course i will…I’m not complaining” Bryan said.
Damn! I will have to face Ellen’s problem for a week or two.
“So Bryan would you like to come in?” Liam asked..
“No i have to go now” Bryan said.
“Okay…Mara come in,Mum just made chocolate cake with whipped cream” Liam said making my smile widen.
Liam took my hand and we both walked in.
I turned back only to see Bryan walking behind us.
“What? I thought you said you are leaving” I said.
“Yeah, I was. But i can’t miss the chocolate cake” He said and i laughed.
Of course no one will want to miss my mum’s chocolate cake
Bryan,Liam,mum and i sat in the living room, watching a movie and eating the delicious and fluffy chocolate cake mum made
Rollins and James are outside chatting over some slices of cake with whipped cream.
I’ve freshened up and changed into a pink jumpsuit with my hair flowing down my back.
I don’t really apply lip gloss but i did and that’s because of Bryan.
“Wow…I have to get going,time is far spent” Bryan said eating the last slice of cake in his plate.
“Hold on,let me wrap some cake for your mum” Mum said.
“Ok Mum” Bryan said.
Mum walked to the kitchen.
I stood up from the couch getting ready to escort Bryan outside.
“Wow,the jumpsuit looks nice on you” Bryan said making my cheeks turn red immediately.
“Thanks” I said turning away only to see Liam winking at me.
I sent him a glare and he laughed singing Fatty Tam quietly.
More stories @ www.chorusman.com
I feel like taking Bryan’s empty plate and hitting it right in the middle of his head.
Mum returned with half of the cake wrapped in a foil paper,then the whipped cream in a covered plate.
She packed it in a small box before handing it to Bryan who grinned approvingly.
“Thanks Mum” He said.
“Alright dear,my greetings to your Mum”
“Bye bro” Bryan said to Liam who waved.
He cant talk cause of the cake stuffed in his mouth.
I walked Bryan outside the house,we met James and Rollins laughing and I’m not surprised to see an empty plate beside them.
Rollins saw us approaching.
“Wow…I gotta go buddy” he said to James and they shook each other.
“Bye Bryan” I said.
“Bye see you tomorrow” he said.
I smiled and walked back into the house.
Why is my cheeks getting hotter and probably redder even when Bryan had left.
I placed the pillow over my ears to stop myself from hearing Mum and dad fighting in the living room.
That has been a daily occurrence…they fight almost everyday!
They quarrel everytime…i wonder why they got married and gave birth to me in the first place.
I wish i was never born!
They are the reason i don’t allow friends into my house,they are the reason i left Vaulint Hill high school.
I remembered when i invited Tony and Eric my bestfriends over to my house.
Suddenly my parents started fighting… throwing things, hitting theirselves, until a broken glass hit Tony right in the head..
He fainted immediately and was quickly rushed to the hospital.
His parents were pissed and threatened on sueing my parents but the case was buried due to how influential dad is.
Since then,i was isolated at school…everyone was avoiding me like a plague.
I got so lonely and fed up,i managed to graduate grade 7 before telling Dad that i need a transfer.
I was transferred to Makers high school and i resumed on the forth day of resumption which is today cause i was at the hospital treating my cut arm.
My parents had mistakenly threw a knife blade at me while they were fighting.
I love my parents so much,they are all i have … Even if they fight every minute and second they still remain my parents.
I removed the pillow away from my head when i noticed the noise had died down.
I stood and walked out of my room,then descended the stairs to the living room.
I met no one there,but met the living room messed up.
I walked to the table to pick my phone when i felt a sharp pain tore through my feet.
I quickly sat on the couch raising up my leg to inspect my bleeding feet.
I saw a broken glass pierced into it,the cut is quite wide.
I cleaned the tears i didn’t know were flowing down my cheeks.
It’s okay…this isn’t the first time.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
I entered the living room and met mum sitting on the couch with her eyes fixed on the television.
“Hi mum” I said pecking mum on both cheeks.
“Bryan,how are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine mum” I said dropping beside her.
“You came home quite late and I’m perceiving something from your bag” She said.
I smiled…”Yeah…I was at Mara’s house and her mum gave me some chocolate cake to give you”
“Wow… Mimi’s chocolate cake has always been the best” Mum said smiling as i brought out the chocolate cake from my bag.
She collected it from me.
“Wow…she added whipped cream” mum said more happily.
“Kim” She called.
“Yes ma’am” Kim said walking to the living room.
“Hi Kim” I said.
“Welcome Bryan,how was school?” She asked.
“Very fine” I said.
“Kim get me a small knife,a plate and a fork” Mum said.
“Okay” Kim said and hurried to the kitchen.
She came back with it and dropped it on the table in front of Mum.
“Do you care for some?” Mum asked her,she nodded shyly.
I smiled ‘who would refuse Mara’s Mum chocolate cake’
“Mum…I need to go freshen up” I said getting up from the couch.
“I’m still coming back for some slices of cake” I said walking to the stairs.
“Didn’t you ate some at Mara’s place?” Mum asked.
“Of course i did,but i want more” I said climbing the stairs to my room.
“Be fast Bryan,we are going to pick your father at the airport” Mum said.
“Okay mum” I replied not feeling as excited as i should..
My dad is coming home after three months,i should be damn happy but I’m not cause I’ve gotten used to his absence.
I walked into my room and dropped my backpack on the cushion.
I pulled off my shoes and socks before walking into the bathroom with my towel in hand.
I pulled off my school uniform, wrapped it and placed it on the sink before getting under the shower.
I stood under the shower for some minutes before realizing that I’m going with mum to the airport.
I turned off the faucet and picked up my towel.
I wrapped it round my waist and picked up a smaller one for my hair.
I sponged out most of the water from my hair with the towel as i made my way back to my room.
I left the towel on my hair as i opened my wardrobe searching for a nice wear.
I settled for a blue jeans,white T-shirt and blue denim jacket,i placed it on the bed then walked back to my shoe rack.
I selected white sneakers and picked a body spray from the drawer…it was a gift from Mara.
I put on my outfit and i know i don’t need to look at my reflection in the mirror cause i know I’m gonna drool at the sight of me.
I can’t help being proud of cute face and great body.
I slipped my feet into my white sneakers then picked up my hair comb.
I brushed back my hair and applied a little hair lotion…I styled it into my preferable style and sighed approvingly.
I finally took a look at my reflection in the mirror and mehn!
I had to stop myself from drooling..
I look just like Miguel Sydney,fallen angel … He’s my fashion icon and i try my best just to always dress like him.
That guy is just so cute with a perfect body,he’s truly an angel..with his wife also.
They already have a little daughter who is classed as the most beautiful girl in the world..
That little girl is the combination of Migvin…she’s just so cute.
I must attend that concert and i can’t wait.
Next month should hurry over!
I wanna see my fashion icon.
“Bryan are you not done?” I heard mum said from the living room.
“I’m done mum” I shouted and walked out of my room.
I met mum waiting at the living room..
She has added some touches to her face and dressing looking as radiant as ever.
“Sweetest Mum in the world” I said.
“Sweetest son in the world” She said and we both giggled.
“Where’s my cake?” I asked.
“It’s in the freezer,you are gonna have it when we arrive” Mum said dragging me along.
We got outside.
She collected her car key from Rollins and we both got into her black sedan.
She turned on the ignition, reversed and drove out of the compound heading to the airport.
Mum parked alongside with other cars in the parking lot of Shade Airport.
We both alighted from the car.
Mum took out her phone to call Dad..
“Darlings” We heard a familiar broad voice.
We looked up and saw dad walking towards us with a broad smile,he’s looking younger and cuter.
He held a travelling bag in his hand, wheeling it towards us.
Mum ran into his arms and i followed suit.
“Wow, Tina you are looking prettier. I’ve missed you so much” He said kissing mum who blushed like a teen.
I stood back and watched them.
“Bryan is starting to grow into a man, come here son” Dad said pulling me closer to him .
He hugged me and patted my back.
Hmm…I missed his scent or do i miss him?
“Goodbye Mum, Dad” I said standing up from the dining chair after having my breakfast.
I pecked the both of them and headed outside.
I met Rollins already waiting beside my car.
“Good morning Rollins” I greeted and hopped in.
“Morning Bryan” He said getting behind the wheel.
“I hope you know we will go pick Mara”
“Yeah i do”
“Mum! If you won’t get me the latest version of iPhone,then don’t talk to me anymore” I yelled angrily getting up from the dining chair.
I picked my backpack and hung it round my shoulders.
I started walking out of the dining room angrily.
“Ellen” Mum called after me.
I ignored her and got to door.
“Okay…I’m gonna get it for you” She said making me turn.
“Really?” I asked happily.
“Yes” She said.
“Thanks Mum,I love you” I rushed to hug her.
“I love you too…I’m gonna go get it for you before you get back from school huh?” She said.
“Thanks Mum” I pecked her cheeks.
“I need to get going now…and i want the iPhone to be in my best color” I said before hurrying out of the house.
“Let’s go! Don’t come pick me after school okay” I said to my driver who nodded.
I got into the back seat,and dropped my backpack beside me.
Fort got behind the wheels and drove out of the compound.
I stared out of the windscreen lost in thoughts.
I kept regretting the reason i helped Mara!
She’s now getting everything her way…
Even the newbie is kinda into her and here i am forcing a guy to love me.
Wait! Do i really expect Bryan to love me?
I need to think of a way…to get either Bryan or the new guy,cause i can’t lose in two ways!
“Mara,check this out” Bryan said showing me a recent picture of Fallen angels and their little daughter.
We were seated in the class, Bryan came to pick me up for school and i was glad when we came in and didn’t meet Ellen in class.
“Wow…they are so cute” I said in complete admiration drooling over the picture.
“We will go get the tickets tomorrow” Bryan said.
“I can’t wait to see them in person,the concert is gonna be great” I said excitedly.
“Yeah it will”..
Just then we saw Kelly limping into the class,then towards his seat.
Students turned to look at him, wondering what’s wrong.
“What happened to Kelly?” Bryan asked me.
“How would i know?”
“Kelly what’s wrong?” Bryan and i asked together immediately he sat down.
“I hurt my feet” he said slowly and unhappily.
“Have you gone to the hospital?” Bryan asked.
“Yeah it has been treated” He said.
“Okay, sorry but you should have rested at home” I said.
“I missed school for three days. I won’t want to miss school again” He said.
“Why did you miss school for three days” I asked curiously.
“Hmm…I was away to Mexico” he said.
“OMG did you see fallen angels?” I asked.
“No i didn’t,i actually didn’t go there for them…I went there for something else” He said.
“Okay Mara and i are going to get the tickets tomorrow, would you like to come?” Bryan asked.
“No he can’t come with us, don’t you see he’s limping” I said .
“I will come with you guys….” he said making me shrug.
Ellen entered the classroom and walked briskly to her seat.
“Hi Kelly,hi Bryan” She said sitting down.
“Hey Ellen,how are you?” Kelly asked.
“I’m fine” She said with smiles.
“Hi Ellen” I greeted.
“Hey” She answered hesitantly.
Bryan tapped me gently and pointed to the front of the classroom.
I followed his gaze and saw Jessie and her parents.
Her father is a huge man scaring most of the students away.
Her mum stood with a mean look.
“Who the hell is Tamara Weston who beat up my daughter” Her father’s voice thundered the silent classroom.
I froze when Jessie pointed to me.
He barged towards me and i almost peed in my panties.
“You are Tamara Weston,why the hell did you beat up my daughter!”
“I..i” I was trying to talk but my lips are barged together in fear.
“Your daughter broke her newly bought iPhone” Bryan suddenly said.
“And so what? Does that require the beating of my daughter” He said more angrily to Bryan.
“Jessie caused it! If she had not broken Mara’s iPhone,then all that wouldn’t have happened” Bryan said boldly.
I noticed the entire students gaze are in our direction.
Can’t someone just get the hell up and go call a teacher!
“Why are you concerned about this! I have issues with Tamara Weston not you dumbass!” He said.
“Aren’t you ashamed to have issues with someone who’s your daughter’s age and classmate…that shows how regardless you are” Bryan said to the shock of everyone.
“Bryan” I scolded in whisper.
Jessie’s dad raised up his hand in anger, about landing it on Bryan’s face when Kelly stood up and hold his hand mid way.
Well…he’s fast enough cause that was what i planned on doing.
“This is Illegal! How could you come to our class and start beating up a student just because of your daughter who did something wrong…you are supposed to report it to the school authorities and they are gonna settle everything but this is not right!” Kelly yelled still holding the man’s hand.
His hand is so small compared to the huge man’s hand.
The man looked from Bryan to Kelly in surprise before flinging his hand away.
“Everyone of you should meet me in my office right now” Mr Allen the principal yelled.
“Mr and Mrs Baird,you don’t have the right to come to school,go straight to your daughter’s classroom and start beating up her fellow student, that’s totally wrong!” Mr Allen said.
Kelly,Bryan, Jessie and i were standing in Mr Allen’s office while Mr and Mrs Baird sat opposite Mr Allen.
Mr Allen is a strict man and I’m afraid of what our punishment is gonna be.
“I’m sorry Mr Allen,i actually didn’t plan on beating up the students but i was provoked” Mr Baird said.
“If you had come to report this to me first,it would have been better.. i won’t tolerate this next time..you both can leave,i need to talk to this students” Mr Allen said.
They both stood up, thanked Mr Allen and left the office.
“What reputation did you guys plan on giving this school… Tamara Weston,i don’t know you to be a fighter…what happened?” Mr Allen asked.
“Mr Allen, Jessie intentionally smashed my new iPhone on the wall and it shattered into pieces…she didn’t apologise or anything,so i got pissed and beat her” I said.
“Jessie Baird, can you tell me the reason you intentionally smashed her iPhone?” Mr Allen asked.
“It was unintentionally Mr Allen,she didn’t wait for me to explain before she started beating me up” Jessie lied making me want to hit her.
“Okay. Bryan Shaw and Kelly Yates,why were you being rude to Mr Baird?”
“We weren’t being rude,i just made some things clear to him,he got annoyed and wanted to hit him before Kelly stopped him by holding his hand” Bryan said.
“We are sorry Mr Allen” Kelly said.
“Of course i know you are sorry,but that won’t stop me from punishing you all…you will all be in detention for a week starting from monday after school work” Mr Allen said.
“Mr Allen please,we are sorry” We pleaded.
“I can extend the detention to two weeks if you like” He said adjusting his eye glass.
“Everyone should evacuate, don’t let me change my mind to something worst” He said and we all scurried out of his office.
“Jessie you caused all this!” I yell angrily at her in the hallway.
“Shut up! I caused what? You started it by beating me up” she yelled back.
“And you started it by smashing my iPhone!” I said.
“Enough of this! Think about how dark and scary that detention used to be” Bryan said.
We got back to the class and met a teacher in.
We quickly walked to our seats.
“I can’t survive for a week in that detention” I said dipping fries into my mouth.
“Then you shouldn’t have tried to act like a female Mike Tyson in the first place!” Ellen shouted.
“What’s your problem with that? As you can see i wasn’t talking to you,i was talking to Bryan and Kelly,you don’t have to interfere!” I said half pissed.
“It’s my problem cause it was because of you Bryan also got detention… who is gonna he dropping me at home huh?” She yelled.
“What’s wrong with your driver?” Bryan asked.
“Nothing” She said.
“Then he’s gonna be driving you home cause we will be staying in the detention for 3 hours after school is over and you can’t possibly wait” Bryan said.
“I will wait”
“No you can’t!”
“Bryan is the detention truly scary?” I asked.
“Yeah it is…it’s so dark and filled with old and dead authors books” he said and i shivered in fright.
I saw Kelly smiling.
“Why are you smiling… aren’t you afraid?” I asked.
“I’m not afraid cause i will be going in with my phone” He said.
“Yeah…me too” Bryan.
“Me too?” I asked.
“Of course” Bryan said.
“Okay…I’m less frightened now … ” I smiled.
Damn! I’ve finished my fries and chicken.
Bryan saw me peering into his pizza rolls.
He quickly shifted it closer to himself and i laughed.
“I’m gonna take one from Kelly’s” I said and grabbed one pizza roll from Kelly’s plate.
“I hope you don’t mind?” I asked.
“No eat as much as you want” He said and smiled making his dimple appear.
“I love your dimple…it’s so deep and perfectly round” I said munching the pizza roll.
I reached for another one.
“Thanks” Kelly grinned.
“Don’t tell me you are blushing?” I teased.
“No I’m not…I’ve received more compliments than this” He replied.
I laughed…”I was only teasing”
I think I’m gonna start ordering Pizza rolls for lunch..
It’s so yummy.
I kept picking and picking more pizza rolls from Kelly’s plate till it got to the last one.
What’s up with my appetite?
I don’t eat this much!
Kelly and i grabbed the last one together making me laugh..
“I’m not gonna leave it for you” I said as we both drag it to ourselves.
“Tammy Its gonna break into pieces,let’s just share it” He said.
Awwwn….he called me Tammy.
“No I’m not sharing it with you,let me have everything or I’m gonna hit my fork on your head” I said and laughed when he quickly released the pizza roll to me.
I ate half of it and looked at Kelly’s face.
“I’m not gonna give you” I said with a mouthful.
“Okay” he said and stood up and suddenly began smiling..
He had grabbed the remaining pizza roll from my hand before i could say JACK.
He threw it into his mouth and ran out of the cafeteria.
“Kelly!” I yelled and began running after him almost laughing my lungs out.
“Will you come in?” I asked Bryan after his driver parked in front of my house.
“No…i will come in another day,i will come pick you up tomorrow for the tickets” He said.
“Okay…bye.Wait,are we still going to pick Kelly?” I asked alighting from the car.
“But he didn’t give you his address” I said.
“I know his house” Bryan smiled.
“How?” I asked.
“Nevermind…let’s just go pick him up tomorrow” He said.
“Okay bye,but i think you need a goodbye knock” I said with a grin.
I laughed when he quickly closed the door of his car and Rollins drove off.
I walked closer to the gate and knocked.
James opened the door and paved way for me to come in before locking it back.
“Hi James” I said.
“How are you Mara?” He asked.
“I’m fine James…is mum home?” I asked.
“No she went to pick Max” he said.
I walked into the house and met the living room empty.
Is Liam not home?
I walked to the kitchen and picked a glass cup and a bottle of water.
I placed the glass cup on the kitchen counter and twisted the bottle cap.
I poured half of it into the glass cup then gulped it down my dry throat.
Damn! I was so thirsty.
I dropped the glass cup in the sink and walked out of the kitchen heading upstairs to my room.
I peeped into Liam’s room but can’t find him.
Maybe he went out for a walk.
I entered my room and dropped my backpack on the bed, sitting tiredly on it.
I can’t wait to be done with school.
Now,I’ve gotten a detention which I’m sure is gonna creep me out!
I felt my phone vibrating in my pocket.
I brought it out…”Mum”
I swiped it to the receiver before placing it on my ear.
Mara how are you?
Fine Mum, how’s Max?
He’s fine and we are on our way home.
Ohh…I’ve missed him.
I Know. I want you to prepare Macroons with spiced chicken.
That made me frown a bit,but I’m gonna do anything for Max
I dropped the call and sighed…
I need to quickly freshen up then rush into the kitchen.
I danced to the tune of “Forever mine” by Fallen angels as i climbed down the stairs after freshening up.
I’m clad in a pink bum short with a white single,my hair is packed in a bun.
I got to the living room and stopped the music.
I placed my phone on the couch and headed to the kitchen.
Taking phones or any device into the kitchen is dangerous.
I opened the kitchen cabinet and picked my apron and hair net.
I wore it and headed to the sink to wash my hands.
I dried it and walked to the fridge.
I brought out some tomatoes and veggies.
I’m gonna slice the tomatoes first.
I placed everything on the kitchen counter then went for a chopping board and knife.
I rinsed it in the sink together with the tomatoes.
I started slicing it….
“Boom ” I heard a thick voice shouted.
I shouted in fright, loosing my balance.
I fell hard on my butt shifting back in fear.
I heard a familiar laughter and managed to stand up only to see Liam laughing by the kitchen door.
I swallowed hard and picked up the knife.
“Liam you are so dead today”

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
“Slice the onions,then after that bring out the chicken from the fridge” I said to Liam who frowned.
“Liam you are so dead today” I said and picked up the knife.
He had already ran out before i could get to him.
I ran after him…
He ran through the corridor,and kept turning and turning till he stumbled over a stool.
I quickly met up with him and smacked his head first with the bottom of the knife.
“Ouch..my head!” He said sitting up.
“Liam why the hell would you scare me like that” I said.
“And why the hell do you get afraid easily” He said.
“I can’t believe you are still talking after making me land on my butt” I said
He laughed and i hit his head again.
“You are so mean!” He said.
“Not when you scared the hell out of me” I said.
“Okay…Sorry,go and continue cooking” He said about standing up.
I pulled him back.
“What again?” He asked.
“I’m not taking Sorry from you” I said.
“Then what do you wanna take from me?” He asked.
“I’m gonna smack this on your head till I’m satisfied” I said grinning.
“What!!” He exclaimed.
“Yes and I’m damn serious about that” I said, intentionally checking out the knife in my hand.
“Damn! Mara do you want my head to develop a swell!” He said.
“I don’t care…if only you know how my butt is hurting” I said.
“So You’re still laughing when I’m about to make your forehead swell”
“Wait Mara,are you serious about this?” He asked.
“Of course i am, do you think i was joking?” I asked raising up the knife.
I won’t scare you again.
What do you want?
I will do anything” His last statement made me stop.
I grinned…”you mean you would do anything?” I asked.
He nodded hesitantly.
“I can’t believe you cherish your head that much but you said you will do anything to stop me from hitting this knife’s butt on your forehead…so what i want you to do now is come with me to the kitchen, you will do all the tedious work and wash the dishes once we are done eating” I said.
“What!…I’m not doing that” he shouted.
“Okay no problem, shift your head closer..let me go on with the hitting” I said positioning the knife perfectly in my hand.
I saw his eyes go wide and laughed inwardly.
“Okay…I will do it” He said slowly.
End of flashback
“You mean i should slice onions?” He asked.
“Yeah” I said lighting the stove.
“You know how much i hate doing that,my eyes will become watery in two seconds” He said.
“Why don’t you just bring your head closer,I’m just gonna smack it twenty times then I’ll release you to go” I said.
“No!” He yelled.
“Then slice!” I yelled back.
“Mara… please just let me go” he said and i sighed.
“I didn’t plan on keeping you here with me for long cause you are as lazy as a feather” I said and he smiled.
“Thank you” he said and began walking out.
“I haven’t said you should go..you have to promise not to scare me again”I said.
“Okay, i won’t scare you again” He said with a mischievous smile.
“Go” I said.
“Where’s your phone?” He asked and i can’t help but pray for Bryan.
“On the couch” I said.
“Okay” He blew me a kiss and left.
I began cooking…
“Max” I ran into his arms.
“I’ve missed you” He kissed my hair.
“Me too Max..I hope you are feeling strong now?” I asked.
“Yeah..I’m feeling stronger” He said.
“Does that mean you will drive me to school on Monday?” I asked happily.
“No! He’s not driving for a week…he needs to rest” Mum said closing the door of the car.
I frowned a bit.
I had rushed out of the dining where i was serving Macroons and chicken when i heard mum drove in.
“But after a week,you will continue driving me to school right?” I asked and he nodded.
“Max,go into your room,Mara is gonna serve you lunch” Mum said.
He smiled bowed and left…
I smiled when i saw James beaming happily.
His buddy is back!
“Welcome mum” I said as we headed inside.
“You look like one perfect chef with the apron and cap you are putting on” She said and that was when i realised im still wearing the apron.
I smiled and pulled it off when we got to the living room.
“Hi mum” Liam said and continued watching the movie.
“It’s a kdrama mum…I just purchased it” he said.
Mum quickly sat down beside him and they both started watching it together.
I walked back to the kitchen and wrapped the apron and cap
back into the kitchen cabinet.
I rinsed two plates and dished out Macroons and Chicken in both for Max and James.
I covered it and placed it in a food basket.
I carried it and walked out of the kitchen.
I met Mum and Liam still watching the so called kdrama.
I shrugged and made for the door.
I got outside and met James about to go into the room.
He stopped and i walked to him.
“Here is your lunch” I said, handing over the food basket to him.
I walked back inside and quickly finish setting the table..
“Lunch is ready!!” I yelled twice.
“We are coming” Mum said.
“I’m gonna start eating” I said.
“You dare not!” Mum said.
I washed the dishes after we were done with lunch.
I placed them in the dish drainer and rinsed the last cup.
I dried my hands and walked out of the kitchen.
I joined mum and Liam in the living room and we watched the movie together.
It’s quite interesting but i don’t feel like watching anymore.
I stood up and headed upstairs to my room.
I have some assignments and i also need to sleep for a whole lot of time.
I got to my room and sat on the bed.
I yawned…”No I’m gonna finish my assignment before sleeping”
I opened my backpack and brought out my English text and note.
I quickly glanced through it… answered all the questions and dropped it on my bedside table.
“I’m gonna deal with the mathematics when I’m awake” I said to myself and yawned one last time before falling into a deep sleep.
I sat on the edge of our pool with my legs dangling in the water and began sketching an imaginary image of Mara sitting on the grass and facing the sun with a longing look.
I was surprised when the drawing came into life.
I saw mara sitting opposite me with her face filled with tears.
“Mara what’s wrong?” I asked.
“Bryan why are you doing this to me?” She cried.
“What’s wrong,what am i doing to you?” I asked.
“You are hurting me” She cried louder.
“Hurting you? How?” I asked.
She stared at me without replying.
Her tears turned into a flood which started moving her farther from me.
“Mara” I called trying to reach her outstretched arm,to save her from floating away.
I tried hard but couldn’t reach her outstretched hand.
She waved at me with a bitter look before vanishing from my sight.
“Mara!!!” I shouted in tears.
I opened my eyes and rubbed my palms over my face.
It was a dream yet it looked so real.
What should i interpret the dream as?
Does it make any sense at all?
I sat up on the bed and saw my sketching pen and paper beside me.
“Ohh…” I laughed.
I was about sketching Mara when i fell asleep.
So that’s the reason i dreamt about her.
I stood up from my bed and slipped my feet into my footwear.
I walked out of my room and climbed down the stairs.
I smiled when i perceived omlette rice.
I love you Kim!
I sat on the couch in the living room after having breakfast, going through my Instagram page to pass time…I’m waiting for Bryan.
I’m clad in a white sleeveless top and a black and white skirt with a striking pattern.
A black face cap is pulled over my hair and I’m putting on a white slippers.
I had taken some selfies in my room and uploaded it on Instagram.
More stories @ www.chorusman.com
I smiled as i read comments until i came across Ellen’s;
Your dressing sucks! You look just like a Zebra.
I replied Thanks for the compliment bestie,Zebra is one of the most beautiful animal…I’m glad.
Her comment hurt me badly,i logged out and dropped my phone on my laps.
“Why isn’t Bryan coming?” I said aloud.
“I’m here” I heard his voice behind me and turned to see him.
He’s clad in a pair of black tight jeans,a plaid shirt and denim jacket with sneakers.
“Hi” he said.
“Hi what took you so long?” I asked.
“We didn’t plan on a particular time” he said.
“Ohh.. okay,i guess I’m so anxious about the tickets” I said.
“Me too…is mum and Liam at home?” He asked.
“No they went to Dad’s company” I said.
“Okay can we leave now?” I asked.
We got outside….
“Max arrived yesterday,have you checked on him?” I asked.
“Yeah… Rollins and i did before i came into the house”
Just then i saw Rollins emerge from Max’s room.
“Hi Rollins” I greeted.
“How are you Mara?” He asked.
“I’m good” I said and opened the door to the back seat ..
I was surprised or rather shocked when i saw Ellen seated there.
I looked at Bryan and he gave me a ‘i-am-sorry-look’ .
“She just showed up at my house this morning and insisted on going with us…I promise she isn’t gonna pick on you” He whispered to me.
I nodded and got in beside Ellen, Bryan got in beside me and Rollins got behind the wheels.
“Hi Ellen” I said.
“Hey” she replied and bent back to her phone..
I noticed it’s new….she has gotten a new phone.
“Wow ,Ellen your phone is pretty just like mine” I said.
She looked at me for a while and turned back to her phone.
Rollins drove out of the compound,into the street then the road.
“Are you sure you know where Kelly is staying?” I asked Bryan.
“How did you know it?” I asked.
“Remember when we were in Mr Allen’s office,i saw Kelly’s file on his table and….” Bryan said.
He opened a small bag…
“I have something for you” he said and brought out a paper.
He opened the paper and there is me! Sitting on a rock and staring at the sun.
“Oh..my..God… this is beautiful” I saw and grabbed the paper from him.
I’ve been disturbing him for a while to sketch me and he finally did.
“Thanks Bryan” I hugged him and turned back to look at the drawing.
It’s so perfect and beautiful…
Bryan I love you!
“You are gonna be the greatest artist,I’m gonna be the greatest surgeon and Ellen is gonna be the greatest dancer and Kelly…I don’t know his future ambition yet” I said.
“Why are you laughing?” I asked.
“Yo…” He was saying before Ellen interrupted him.
“Bryan where’s mine!?” She yelled.
“Calm down…Mara has been disturbing me for this…I’m gonna sketch yours and being it for you on Monday” He said.
Rollins parked in front of a white mansion.
“Is this where Kelly stays?” I asked.
“Yeah” he said and opened the car door.
We got down and walked to the gate.
Ellen smiled and knocked.
The gate opened and a man stepped out.
I guess it’s Kelly’s gatekeeper.
“Hi” we greeted.
“Whom do you ask for?” He asked.
“Kelly Yates…we are his friend” Ellen said.
“Okay come in” The gate keeper said.
We walked into the compound and i was wowed..
It’s so big and beautiful…
I clinged to Bryan when we suddenly heard the shattering of glass.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
I placed and headphone over my ear and increased the volume to the limit to prevent me from hearing Mum and dad fight.
I stared out of my window looking at the people and passing cars.
I know Tammy and Bryan would be on their way to get the tickets..
I forgot to give them my address and i don’t also have any of their contact… neither did they have mine.
I know Tammy’s house…Leo has dropped her their once but i just don’t feel like going not when Mum and dad is fighting.
I heard the sound of gate opening,I looked down and was shocked when i saw Tammy,Bryan and Ellen.
What are they doing here!
How did they found out about my address!
Mum and dad is freaking fighting right now!
How could this damn game keeper allow them in!
I removed my headphone when i saw Tammy cling to Bryan..
I heard the shattering of glass.
I quickly wore my footwear,arranged my hair, picked my phone and ran out of the room.
I got to the living room and met mum and dad still fighting.
I stood for a moment and cleaned the tears that were starting to form in my eyes.
I rushed outside and comported myself the best way i can .
I forced a smile as i walked towards them.
“Hi guys” I said in a fake cheerful voice.
“Wait what was that shattering sound?” Tammy asked.
“Ohh…one of the windows in the attic has broken again” I lied.
“Thank goodness…I was afraid someone is hurt” Tammy said.
“How did you found out about my house?” I asked curiously.
“I saw your file in Mr Allen’s office” Bryan said.
“Ohh… okay, can we leave now?” I asked.
“Aren’t you gonna invite us in?” Ellen asked.
“Not today…dad is having a meeting right now” I lied.
“We can just go to your room” She said.
“Ellen!” Bryan scolded giving her a look.
“Let’s go” He said and we walked out of the gate.
I saw his car parked beside my house.
We walked towards it..
“I’m sitting at the front” Tammy said.
“Of course that’s where you are gonna sit” Ellen said.
It seems there’s something off with these two.
We got to the car.
“Hi Rollins” I said.
“Kelly how are you?” He asked.
“I’m fine” I said.
Tammy got into the front seat.
We got into the backseat.
Rollins drove off.
We sat round a table in an unfamiliar restaurant eating and chatting.
We’ve finally gotten our tickets after all the stress.
Kelly offered us a treat in this nice restaurant.
“Their meals are awesome” I said biting into my chicken fried steak.
“Yeah…I love it” Bryan said.
“Me too” Kelly said.
We finished eating and started chatting about school work.
“Mrs Ardsley’s assignment was so difficult but Liam helped me out” I said.
“Who is Liam?” Kelly asked.
“My brother” I smiled.
“Wow…I wasn’t aware you have a brother” he said.
“Now you are aware” I said.
“We all have to exchange our contacts with Kelly”Bryan said and I nodded.
“Yeah…I was also planning on saying that” Ellen said.
Kelly passed his phone to Bryan who quickly inputted his number and passed it to me.
I did the same and passed it to Ellen who suddenly smiled.
What’s wrong with her?
The Cloud started rolling in…
“Damn! I’ve forgotten the weather forecast Rain by Mid afternoon…we need to leave” I said already standing up.
I was the last person Bryan dropped off.
I waved him bye and knocked on the gate.
The rain is starting to pour heavily.
James opened the gate,i rushed in and quickly ran into the house..
One of the things I hate most is getting drenched.
Mum and Liam are not back yet.
I climbed the stairs to my room and almost tripped.
I began pulling off my wet clothes immediately i entered my room.
I’m glad my ticket is safe!
I grabbed a long and thick sweater from the wardrobe and pulled it on.
I picked up my teddy bear and hugged it close to my chest.
I got under the covers and closed my eyes tightly shivering in cold.
I ended up falling asleep….
“By tomorrow…I’m gonna select students for the practical” Mr Tommy,said,picked his books and walked out of the class.
I sighed and rested my head on the desk..
I’m feeling so cold.
The weather has been so cold for the last two days.
I had to wear the school’s cardigan over my school uniform…I’m not the only one who did that..most of the students did also.
“Mara are you okay?” I heard Bryan asked.
“Yes i am…I’m just feeling cold” I said.
“Sorry” he said.
Someone wrapped a cardigan over me.
I smiled thinking it was Bryan but my smile faded when i saw it was Kelly.
“Thanks” I muttered.
He nodded and continued writing.
I looked at Bryan and saw him talking to Ellen with his hand wrapped on her shoulder.
I felt hurt and sad…
Isn’t it high time i told Bryan i love him.
But what if he doesn’t feel the same way for me… that’s gonna spoil our relationship.
We has four more classes before going to the cafeteria for lunch break.
“What do you want to take Mara/Tammy” Kelly and Bryan said together.
I faced Bryan..
“Kelly take Mara’s order,I’m gonna take Ellen’s order” Bryan said.
“I want Fries, salmon with steak” Ellen said.
“I want the same thing” I said.
“Okay” They said and walked away.
“I bet you are feeling lucky,two guys offered to take your order” Ellen said.
“What’s lucky about that?” I asked.
“Do you know what?” She asked.
“What?” I asked.
“I regret helping you to get this perfect body and face of yours” She said.
“I also regret accepting your help” I said.
Our lunch was placed in front of us, Kelly and Bryan also sat down and placed their lunch on the table.
We began eating…
“Damn!” I yelled a student poured a plate of pasta on my hair.
It dropped down to my Cardigan, staining it immediately..
“What the hell!” Bryan and Kelly yelled.
I stood up and turned to look at the girl.
She seemed frightened.
“I’m sorry…I was sent to do so” She said before running out of the cafeteria.
“Come here” Bryan said and began running after hair.
I quickly held him back..
“Let it go Bryan…just leave her,she was sent to do so” I said and noticed the whole Cafeteria has started laughing on how messed up i look.
“It’s okay…I will go wash off this,i will be right back” I said and hurried to the restroom.
I got there and let out the tears i was holding.
I’m the only one that keeps getting hurt and hurt and hurt forever!
I’m the only weird one!
I’m the only one who keeps crying non-stop!
I’m fed up!
I cleaned my tears and pulled off my cardigan..
I’m glad my school uniform is not stained.
I fold my cardigan with the pasta on it and threw it into the waste basket.
I turned on the faucet and splashed water on my face…
I turned off the faucet and dried my face.
I repacked my hair and looked at reflection in the mirror..
Tamara…how did you get this beautiful!
I only worked on my body not my face!
I walked out if the restroom and headed to the cafeteria.
It was damn silent and the lights were off meaning lunch break is over.
Did i stay so long in the restroom?
I’m still starving!
I headed back to the classroom holding back tears.
My eyes is just so watery!
I entered the class and met everyone seated.
They stared at me and whispered and i walked down to my seat.
I felt so terrible.
I sat down and sniffed…
“Are you okay?” Kelly and Bryan asked.
“I’m fine” I said.
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah” I said.
“I packed your leftover lunch for you…have it” Kelly said and stretched a covered plate of fries, salmon with steak to me.
“Thank you” I said happily,grabbed it from him and began eating hurriedly before a teacher walks in.
“You might need water” Bryan said and placed a bottle of water in front of me.
“Thanks bestie” I said happily.
I finished my lunch and gulped down half of the bottled water…
I sighed happily and sat up when a teacher walked in…
We began another round of class.
Bryan, Kelly and i watched as students trooped out of the class.
“Ellen won’t you leave..we are staying for our detention” Bryan said to Ellen.
“I’m not leaving! I will be here till you guys are done for today” she said.
“You will be the only one remaining in the class” Kelly said.
She smiled “I have my phone with me” She said.
The whole school has gone silent…a lot of students have left.
Jessie sat at the far end of the class staring into space.
A prefect walked in…and we stood up.
“Bryan Shaw, Kelly Yates, Tamara Weston, Jessie Baird…come with me for your detention” She said and we followed her.
We walked through the hallway, cornered and cornered till she stopped at a door.
She opened it and told us to go in.
I shivered seeing how dark the inside is.
Bryan walked in first, Kelly walked in second, Jessie then walked in only to scream and rushed out back.
I also ran off in f

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
Tam isn’t back yet and she didn’t call to say anything.
I’ve tried calling her but she’s not picking up!
I’ve tried calling Bryan too … Same thing!
Its getting late and I’m so worried.
“Mum would you give Mrs Shaw a call?” I asked.
“Okay” She said and picked her phone from the table.
I quickly climbed the stairs to my room, picked a jacket and brushed my hair.
I selected a pair of blue footwear,threw my phone into my pocket and headed back to the living room.
I met mum dropping the call.
“Mum what did she say?” I asked.
“She said Bryan isn’t home also” Mum said worriedly.
“Don’t worry mum…I’m going to their school now,i will give you a call if i find them there” I said and pecked her both cheeks.
I walked outside and saw James by the gate…he was about locking it.
“Don’t lock it James…I’m going out now” I said.
I walked outside the gate and waved an upcoming cab to a stop.
It did and i got in.
“Makers high school” I said and breathed.
“Okay” the cab man said and drove off.
I should have just gone with my car but i just don’t like driving and Max isn’t gonna drive for a week or two.
I brought out my phone and tried calling Mara again..
Now it’s unavailable!
I alighted from the cab after paying.
I adjusted my Jacket and knocked the gate gently.
It opened to reveal the gate keeper.
“Good afternoon” I greeted.
“Good afternoon…whom do you ask of?” He asked.
“Mhmm…my siblings” I said.
“Name?” He asked.
“Tamara Weston and Bryan Shaw”
“Ohh… okay,they are in school. You can come in” He said and paved way for me.
I breathed in relief and entered.
“Go through that hallway,you are gonna see a door with “grade 8″ ”
“Alright thanks” I said and followed his direction.
I brought out my phone and placed a call to mum.
I need to tell her Immediately that they are school cause she’s more worried than i am.
Mum they are in school.
Thank goodness,I’m gonna inform Mrs Shaw now.
I sighted the door with grade 8 and walked closer to it.
I pulled it open and walked in.
There was no one in the class except Ellen who has her head bent over something..
Phone…I guess..but i called her and she wasn’t picking up.
Was she ignoring my calls?
“Ellen” I called and she glanced up.
She seemed surprised to see me.
“Liam…what are you doing here?” She asked.
“Where’s Tam and Bryan?” I asked.
“Uhh…they are in the school’s detention” She said.
“Really?” I asked with surprise.
“Yeah” she said.
“Okay” I said.
“Ellen i called you more than twice to ask about Tam and Bryan but you weren’t picking up and your phone is right in your hand”
“Really?…I guess it was when i went to use the restroom” She lied and i smiled.
“I don’t care about the dispute between you and Tam but please anytime i call you, pick it up…you have no idea what i might want to tell you” I said and sat on a desk.
“Don’t you wanna know the reason why they are in detention?” She asked with a smile.
“I’m gonna ask Tam once she’s out” I said.
“Well…I’m gonna tell you,Mara fought with Jessie and the Jessie smashed her iPhone into pieces, Jessie’s parents came to school to report them but Bryan and Kelly who is our new friend were being rude to Jessie’s parents…Mr Allen punished them by giving them detention for a whole week” She said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“You mean the iPhone i recently bought for Tam was broken by Jessie?” I asked.
“That’s a lie…I was with Tam’s iPhone yesterday” I said.
She laughed…”well i don’t know how she got a new one to fool you but you are gonna confirm once they are out”
Is Ellen in her right senses?…
I guess not!
I was with Tam’s iPhone yesterday and it’s perfectly fine..
No scratches or anything.
My mind suddenly flashed back to when i asked Tam for her phone..she said she and Ellen exchanged it for the night.
I asked her to show me Ellen’s phone but Mum came in at that moment and i totally forgot about the phone.
“Wait…Ellen do you by any chance exchange phone with Tam for a night?” I asked.
“No i didn’t,we haven’t exchanged phone in this term!…I guess that was what she used to fool you” Ellen said and turned back to her phone.
I don’t believe her yet but if by any chance it’s true, Jessie should be prepared for the worst,there is a familiar sign on the iPhone i bought for her.
The classroom door opened and i stood up thinking it’s Tam and co but i was wrong..
The school prefect came in.
“Hi” she said.
“Hi” I sat down.
“I was told Tamara Weston and Bryan Shaw’s brother is here” She said suddenly adjusting her hair.
I smiled….she’s not my type!
“They will soon be out,Tamara and Jessie ran off and got their time delayed so Mr Allen added 2 hours to their stay in the detention…it’s just remaining an hour,they will be out soon” She said smiling.
I nodded, ignoring the signals she’s sending my way.
An hour later
I watched as Tam,Bryan, Jessie and some other guy walked into the class.
“Liam” I said in surprise.
“Bro” Bryan said.
I didn’t tell them I got detention at school..
He was probably worried and came to search for me.
He stood up and walked towards us..
I noticed his face isn’t bright.
“Tam let me see your iPhone” He suddenly said and i froze.
I looked from Bryan to Ellen who grinned.
I’m very sure she told him something.
“Let me have your iPhone!” He yelled.
Damn! Liam rarely yell at me.
“It.. it’s in my backpack” I stuttered.
“Go get it” He said and i walked slowly to my desk.
I unzipped my backpack and brought out my iPhone.
I head back to Liam and handed the phone to him.
He took it and checked the back.
He turned to me and i could see how hard he’s gritting hit teeth.
He’s so pissed! He has found out about this isn’t the one he bought for me.
“Tam this isn’t the iPhone i bought for you” He yelled making me shift back a little.
“I..she..i.it” I stuttered and started crying.
I saw his expression softened a bit.
He hates seeing me cry..
“What happened to the iPhone i bought for you?” He asked more calmly.
“She smashed it on the wall and it shattered into pieces” I said and cleaned my tears pointing to Jessie.
Liam turned to her and she quickly shift back in fear.
“I’m sorry” She stammered.
“I don’t hit girls but let me use this to sound as a warning to you..if you ever and ever hurt my sister or anything close to her…I’ll make sure you wear your teeth around your neck like a necklace” Liam yelled at her.
He turned back to me…
“Tam why did you lied to me?” He asked.
“Liam I’m sorry” I cried.
“Who got the phone for you?” He asked.
I sniffed and looked at Bryan,he seemed a little bit afraid.
He has never seen Liam in this mood.
“Bryan did?” Liam asked.
“Thanks b” He said and Bryan looked up in surprise..
He was thinking Liam would probably yell at him.
“Bryan!” Ellen suddenly yelled making everyone turn to her.
Damn! Is this girl crazy..
“You mean you bought an iPhone for Mara?” She asked in anger.
“Yes i did” Bryan said.
“Hey! What’s wrong with Bryan buying an iPhone for Tam.. aren’t you all friends!” Liam said.
“I swear down! Bryan you are gonna get another iPhone for me…I’m gonna dash this out soon” Ellen said.
“It’s so obvious you are going crazy” The prefect said.
“Ellen,if you dash that iPhone out..Im not gonna get a new one for you” Bryan said.
“Didn’t you get one for Mara?” She asked.
“I got her one cause she was helpless,that was the only available option then! I swear down! If you dash out your iPhone you can as well consider yourself phone less” Bryan said.
“Tam..go pick your backpack” Liam said to me.
I walked to my desk and picked my backpack.
I hung it over my shoulders and headed back to Liam.
He took my hand and we left the classroom.
We both alighted from the cab in front of our house.
We walked to the gate and Liam knocked.
“Liam…I’m sorry” I said but he didn’t reply me.
Why isn’t he talking to me!
I understand he’s pissed at me for lieing to him.
He hates lies!
He trusted me enough to tell him everything but i broke that trust!
“Liam I’m sorry” I said again but he didn’t respond.
James opened the gate and we both walked in.
We entered the living room.
I met Mum sitting on the couch,she smiled on seeing us.
I rushed to hug her…
I saw Liam climb the stairs to his room.
“Liam” I called but he didn’t respond.
I sat on the couch beside mum and started crying.
“What’s wrong?” Mum asked…
“Liam won’t talk to me again” I cried.
“He won’t talk to you again? Why?” She asked.
I sat up and began explaining everything to Mum, starting from the moment Liam bought the phone for me.
“Wow…how could you hide such thing from me” Mum said when i finished my narration.
“I’m sorry Mum” I said.
“Of course I’m not pissed about that but Liam is…so go into his room now and beg him”
“He’s not gonna answer me”
“He will…just go”
“Are you sure mum?”
“Yes i am”
I stood up and dropped my backpack on the couch.
I looked at Mum and she assured me to go.
I climbed the stairs and got to his room.
I knocked but didn’t get a response..
I knocked again…same thing!
I pulled the door open and stepped in.
I met him on the bed facing upward, staring at the ceiling.
I cleared my throat and sat beside him on the bed.
He didn’t look away from the ceiling nor did he acknowledge my presence.
“Liam,I’m sorry…I know you’re pissed at me and this was what i was trying to avoid in the first place…I’m so sorry Liam” I said and took his hand in mine.
“It’s okay” He said.
“It’s not okay Liam…you are still pissed at me”
“Like seriously…it’s fine Tam” he said and looked at me.
“No it’s not fine..you are still pissed at me” I said.
“I’m not pissed at you anymore…I’m just disappointed…I thought you don’t keep anything from me” He said.
I started crying again…Liam doesn’t trust me anymore..
“I’m sorry Liam…I know how you pissed you would have been if i had told you that the iPhone you recently bought for me has been destroyed”
I smiled amidst tears when he pulled me into a hug.
“Fatty Tam Tam” He sang funnily to my ears.
I laughed happily…he’s not pissed at me anymore
“It’s okay Tam,i understand…I’m sorry for making you cry and i still trust you 100% I’m not disappointed in you a bit” He said and pecked my cheeks.
“Yes fatty Tam” he said,now sounding like the Liam i know.
I hugged him tightly…
“Tam you are suffocating me” He said.
I laughed “yeah.. that’s for making me cry”
He laughed and kissed my hair…
“I’m starving” he said holding his stomach.
I sent him a one sided look already knowing what he’s trying to say.
“So what should i do?” I asked.
“I was running about searching for you guys,i almost got knocked over by a car,i was wai…”
“It’s okay.. it’s okay…what do you want me to make for you?” I asked.
He smiled widely…Ahhh! Food monger!
“Pasta with chicken” He said.
“Don’t you ever get tired of that?” I asked.
“You know it’s my best food” He smiled.
“Now you are gonna make everyone have that for lunch” I said.
“Yeah…we are gonna change lunch tomorrow… quickly go to the kitchen..I’m starving” He said and brought out my phone from his pocket.
“Bryan is a darling” He said.
“Yeah…my darling to be precise” I gasped realising i said that aloud.
Liam winked at me, i blushed and quickly walked out of his room.
I heard his laughter..
I walked into my room with smiles.
I picked up my teddy bear and throw it up happily..
” Liam has forgiven me.
Liam has forgiven me
Liam has forgiven me”
I sang happily.

I placed my teddy bear back on the table and started undressing.
I picked my body towel and ran naked into the bathroom.
I placed the towel on the cabinet and picked my shower cap.
I wore it over my hair and got under the shower,i turned on the faucet and shivered as the cold water hit my body.
I pulled on a pink cardigan with tiny pearl buttons and black polyster pants.
I combed my hair and packed it in a bun.
I don’t feel like applying body lotion so i let it be.
I adjusted the pink ribbons on my slippers before slipping my feet into it.
I hopped out of my room humming “Till i met you”..
I got to the living room and met mum watching a kdrama.
“Mum he forgave me” i said.
“I know he would,he isn’t as stubborn as you” She said and i shot her a playful glare.
“I’m going to make lunch” I said and she nodded.
She continued with her kdrama while i headed to the kitchen.
I washed my hands in the sink after putting on my apron and cap.
I dried my hands and proceeded to start cooking.
I sat in my room, sketching Liam.
I’m gonna take it to their house once I’m done.
Liam is probably not happy with me,i need to use this to pacify him.
I hope he’s gonna like it…Mara once told me he loves kdrama and his favorite actor is Lee min ho.
So I’m sketching a picture of him sitting opposite Lee min ho.
I googled the best picture of Lee min ho and saved it on my phone..i placed my phone beside me and looked from it to my sketching pad…I sketched the exact picture of Lee Min ho.
I’m done with his part so I started with Liam’s.
I was done with everything in an hour.
I felt so proud of myself when i looked at my drawing..
So perfect! Without flaws..
Lee min ho is sitting opposite Liam,they smiled at each other with a glass cup of wine in their hands.
I made the background to be korea-like … So it looked so real.
This drawing is just so beautiful..
I stood up…i don’t want to take forever in admiring a piece of work.
I grabbed a black sweatshirt from the wardrobe and quickly pulled it on.
I wore a black footwear, pulled a face cap over my ruffled hair.
I picked the drawing and put it inside a covered board.
I walked out of my room and descended the stairs into the living room.
I met Kim watching a movie.
“Where’s Mum and dad?” I asked.
“They are in the room” She said.
“Okay..I’m off to Mara’s house” I said.
I got outside and Rollins quickly went to open the car.
“No I’m gonna board a cab” I said to him.
He smiled and nodded.
Fort opened the gate and i stepped out.
It took few minutes for me to finally board a cab.
“Lington estate phase 3” I said.
I alighted in front of Mara’s house.
I paid the cab man in cash and he drove off.
I knocked on the gate,it took a while for James to come open it.
“Hi James” I said and walked in.
“How are you Bryan?” He asked.
“I’m fine” I said and walked to the door.
I opened it and stepped into the living room.
I met Liam and mum watching a kdrama.
“Good afternoon Mum” I greeted.
“Ohh..Bryan,you are here..how are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine mum…hi Liam” I said.
He waved to me with a smile.
“Mara is in the kitchen” Mum said.
“Okay…I will go join her” I said and walked to the kitchen.
I entered and saw Mara washing some utensils at the sink.
Her back is to me.
I perceived the aroma of pasta and fried chicken and that was when i realised I’m starving.
She turned back and flinched on seeing me.
I’m done with cooking and was washing some stained utensils at the sink when i felt Bryan’s presence.
My heart do speed faster whenever he’s around and now it’s happening.
I turned and flinched on seeing him.
He laughed and i smiled..
“Bryan what are you doing here?” I asked in surprise even though I’m feeling damn happy he’s here.
He stretched his sketching board to me..
Ohh…I didn’t realise he was holding that.
I collected it from him….”is this another drawing for me?” I asked..
He shook his head.
I felt a bit disappointed and brought out the drawing.
My mouth went agape when i saw the drawing..
Lee min ho and Liam!
It’s so perfect!
“Oh..my..God. Bryan you drew this?” I asked in surprise,even though i know what Bryan is capable of but this is just too beautiful.
“Liam is pissed with me so i thought of using this to pacify him..you know you once told me he loves kdrama and his favorite actor is Lee min ho so that was what i followed” He said and i felt like pulling him into a hug even though the drawing is not for me.
“It’s so beautiful…Liam is gonna love it..Liam!” I screamed.
“Mum pause the movie…I will be right back” I heard Liam said.
I smiled when he entered the kitchen.
“Liam look at this!” I said and stretched the drawing to him.
He collected it and looked at it..
His mouth fell open.
“Bryan..yo..you..drew th..is?He asked in disbelief.
He was surprised when Liam suddenly pulled him into a hug.
“Wow… thanks B,this is Lee min ho..my fav! I know it’s just a drawing but damn! It’s looking so real” Liam said.
“I’m so glad you like it” Bryan smiled.
“I don’t like it…I love it totally” Liam said looking at the drawing over and over again.
“So i hope you’ve forgiven me now?” Bryan asked.
“Of course yes…I forgive you and everyone close to you” Liam said and we laughed.
“Thanks so much B,i will forever cherish this piece of drawing..I can’t believe I’m sitting with Lee min ho..Mehn! I love this” Liam said making us laugh again.
“Mum needs to see this” Liam said and ran out of the kitchen…
“Wow … I’m so glad he has forgiven me” Bryan said.
“Thanks Bryan” I said.
“For what?” He asked.
“For making my brother happy” I said.
“It’s nothing..he deserve it so what should i help you with?” He asked and i smiled.
“Continue with the utensils in the sink while i dish out lunch” I said.
“Okay chef Mara” He said with a bow making me laugh.
Bryan…I so much love you
Bryan finished washing the utensils at the same time i finished dishing out lunch in the dining..
He came and stood beside me at the dining.
“It looks yummy” He said and i smiled..
“Wait till you have a taste then you will know it taste yummier” I said and we laughed.
“Kdrama lovers…lunch is ready!” I shouted.
“US drama lover,we are coming” They shouted back.
My cheeks were starting to ache from laughter.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
We were laughing at Jessie’s scream when i sighted the grey hair in Mara’s hair.
I looked at it in surprise…I just hope it doesn’t mean anything cause this is the second time I’m seeing this.
She suddenly turned to look at me.
“Mara…you have another strand of grey hair” I said worriedly.
Her eyes went wide..
“Really?” She asked.
“What’s wrong?” Kelly asked.
“There is a strand of grey hair in her hair and this is the second time I’m seeing it”
“Wow..is that the reason you look sad?” He asked.
“I’m afraid…why is grey hair suddenly growing in my hair” Mara said.
“It doesn’t mean anything…it’s normal” Kelly said.
“Really?” Mara asked.
“Yeah…it is normal,you don’t have to be scared” Kelly said.
She shrugged…”Let’s go home”
I took her hand in mine and we headed towards the parking lot.
“You are still worried right?” I asked.
“Trust Kelly,he said it’s normal”
“I hope so” She said and tightened her hands around mine.
I got home and walked into the living room..
I met mum and dad sitting on the couch with two plates of cookies and two glass cups of wine.
“Hi mum,hi Dad” I said as i walked closer to them.
“Bryan how was school?”
“Fine” I said and picked a cookie..
I threw it into my mouth and munched it slowly.
I picked another one,then gulped down the whole wine in a glass cup.
I don’t know if it’s for mum or dad but i gotta satisfy my stomach.
Mum glared at me and i know the wine i just gulped is for her.
I laughed and started to walk towards the stairs.
I turned back and rushed to Mum and Dad.
“Mum,dad…is there a need to be worried if one suddenly starts growing grey hair?” I asked.
“It’s one of the signs of old age..are you growing grey hair?” Mum asked already pushing my head forward.
“No Mum…im not! ” I said and shifted my head away.
“The person is just same age as me” I said.
“Really?” She asked and looked over to Dad who cleared his throat.
“It’s not necessary to be worried if one starts growing grey hair…it’s completely normal and part of growth” Dad said.
“Wow” I smiled.
“Thanks dad, thanks mum…I’m off to my room”I said and turned to leave.
“Oh…I ordered a novel and it’s gonna be delivered soon..Kim should bring it to my room and dad, pay for it” I said and walked towards the stairs.
I started climbing it to my room..
I’m glad the grey hair means nothing… Kelly also said so but Mara is still worried.
I’m gonna assure her tomorrow..
I unlocked the door to my room and got in.
I threw my bag on the sofa and stretched on the bed with a sigh.
We skipped detention…
All thanks to Liam!
I started pulling off my shoes and socks..
Ahh… school can be so tiring..
I need to shower and eat something.
I stood up and walked to the bathroom.
I walked back to my room with my body and hair dripping wet,I used the head towel to sponge out most of the water from my hair.
I heard a knock..
“Come in Kim” I said.
She walked in and handed me the novel.
“Ohh… thanks” I said and collected it.
I love the book cover… can’t wait to read this..
I raised up my head to see Kim still standing in front of me smiling at the novel in my hand..
“What?” I asked even though i know what she’s gonna ask for…we are both novel fans.
“Mhmm…will you please borrow me once you are done with it?” She asked.
“Okay no problem i will”
“Thank you” She said and turned to leave.
“Kim can i please have some cookies and wine” I said.
“Yeah..I’m coming” She said and walked out.
I dropped the novel and the bed and started dressing up.
I wore a pair of blue shorts with grey sweatshirt.
My hair is feeling damp against my skin and i hate it so much.
I sat on the chair facing the mirror and grabbed the hair dryer from the drawer.
I plugged it and placed it near my hair.
It was completely dried in some minutes,so i unplugged it put it back in the drawer.
I stood up and walked to the bed.
I sat on it and picked the novel..
“Meant to be” I’ve fallen in love with it even without reading it.
I turned the back and started reading the summary;
A young lady was found unconscious by two siblings; Fleur and Miguel in Fraser Island,the countryside of Australia.
They nursed her back….
I heard a knock on the door..
“Come in Kim” I said and she walked in.
I smiled when i saw a plate of cookies and a glass cup of chilled wine on a tray.
“Thanks” I said and collected it.
She nodded and walked out.
I shifted the bedside table closer to me and placed the tray on it.
I threw one cookies in my mouth and grinned.
So yummy but first i gotta finish this summary.
I walked into my room worriedly.
I dropped my backpack on the bed and sat down.
Mara’s grey hair….
Is it probably a result of what she did?
Or is it normal?
How would i know!
Shouldn’t i be happy that something is happening to her?
I should be but i don’t just know what’s happening to me!
Ellen you shouldn’t be doing this!
Remember she isn’t your friend anymore.
To hell i care!
I stood up and pulled off my shoes then my pop-socks, skirt and shirt.
I walked into the bathroom…
First…I need a long soak in the Jacuzzi.
I turned off the faucet and stepped out of the jacuzzi after spending an hour.
I feel relieved.
I picked my body towel from the towel hanger and wrapped it around my body.
I walked back into my room and flinched when i saw Quilah in her red robe.
Her long fingernails brushed her white hair which was long down to her feet.
Her white feather flapped hitting my bedside table.
Her plain white eyes were round and wide.
She gave a throaty laughter and beckoned me to come closer.
“Quilah…what are you doing here?” I whispered in fear….
I cleaned my tears as i finished reading Meant to be..
They really went through a lot… being successful is not a day job.
I can’t believe i just finished reading fallen angels biography..
This author is just too good…I’m ordering one for myself now.
I picked my phone and clicked on B&M delivery company..
Braun Mortimer delivery company…Mum’s favorite delivery company..mum orders things from B&M delivery company only.
It’s the best delivery company…they are so efficient and they are all over the world.
They deliver within minutes.
I clicked on their website…i checked their book stock and searched for Meant to be…Yes! They have it…its $100.
I quickly placed a call to them.
Hi, B&M delivery company on the line.
Hello…I want to order for a novel.
Okay,there are various types of novels in stock..can you please tell us the one you want.
Meant to be by Author Zee.
Alright…it’s in stock, kindly forward your address through email and you will have it delivered at your door step in minutes.
Okay thanks…I will do that now.
Bye, thanks for patronizing.
I dropped the call and quickly forward my address through email.
I stood up and stretched.
I slipped into my footwear,blew the novel a kiss before walking out of my room.
I got to the living room and sighed annoyingly when i met mum and Liam watching kdrama again.
I shook my head and walked to the kitchen.
Im just gonna have cheese and ham.
We just finished having lunch and i don’t know why I’m starving now..
What’s up with my large appetite this days…
I barely eat before!
“Tam… your delivery is here” I heard Liam shout from the living room.
I quickly jumped down from the kitchen stool and hurried to the living room.
I opened the door and met the delivery guy at the door step with my novel packaged in a little customised box.
“Hi,” He said and i nodded.
“I’m the one who ordered for the novel..” I said.
“The novel is It’s $100″ the delivery money is already charged with it” He said.
“Yeah I know … Transfer or cash?” I asked.
“Anyone you are comfortable with ”
“Liam…I need $100″ I said.
Okay I’m coming” He said.
I heard his footsteps…I turned back and saw him smirking with his mouth full.
Damn! He has eaten the remaining cheese and ham i left on the kitchen table.
He’s so dead today!
I dragged the money from him.
“Ungrateful fatty” He said and laughed,then walked back to the living room.
I turned to the delivery guy to see him holding his laughter.
Is that what he’s paid for huh?
I handed him the money and he gave me the novel.
“Thanks for patronising B&M delivery company” he said with a bow.
“You are welcome” I said,he got into their van and drove away.
I smiled as i checked it out…
So new and beautiful..
I love it! But first how could Liam eat the cheese and ham i left.
I closed the door and barged into the living room..
I met only mum.
“Mum where’s Liam?” I asked..
“In the kitchen” She said.
I walked to the kitchen but couldn’t find him there.
He has probably ran to his room..
I hissed at the empty plate of cheese and ham before walking out of the kitchen.
I began climbing the stairs to my room..
I’m gonna re-read this novel…
I caught Liam coming out of his room,he quickly turned and ran back into his room when he saw him.
I shook my head and opened his door.
I met him hiding behind the door.
“You know you are not good at hide and seek. Why did you eat my cheese and ham?” I asked.
He smiled widely…”Do you want your cheese and ham back?” He asked.
“Of course yes!” I said.
“Okay give me my $100” He said.
I hit the novel box on his forehead.
“Ouch” he groaned.
“You know i don’t have $100,you this food monger” I said and walked out of his room.
“Ungrateful fatty” He laughed..
“I will be back for you,i need to sleep” I shouted and opened the door to my room.
I don’t know the reason I’m suddenly feeling sleepy.
I dropped the novel on the dressing table and yawned…
I quickly climbed the bed and pulled the blanket over me.
I yawned for the last time before falling asleep.
I saw myself in a desert, looking around and crying..
Everywhere looked desolate,there was no one around.
The only name i could mention was Bryan..
There was a wild wind blowing sand into my eyes. The long white gown i was wearing started blowing with the wind…
It was so hectic and all i could do was scream.
The wind stopped abruptly and I managed to open my eyes.
“IM QUILAH,THE GREAT GODDESS OF WISHES”
I saw Quilah standing in her red robe,her long fingernails brushed her white hair which was long to her feet.
Her white bulgy eyes was so scary.
Her big white feathers flapped together.
She walked towards me with a grin and i kept shifting and shifting back in fear.
I reached the end of the deserts and could no longer move, except if i want to tumble downnnnn.
I shook in fear as Quilah stood in front of of me.
She pointed a finger to me,then made to clash my face with it.
I screamed and found myself tumbling down the desert..
I kept tumbling down, down, down, down with no end.
I opened my eyes breathing heavily..
Damn! It was a dream,yet it looked so real and scary.
I sat up on my bed and my heart jumped to my mouth when i saw Quilah sitting beside me on the bed.
She gave a throaty laugh and beckoned me closer with her long fingers.
I shivered in fear and managed to scream….

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
(Zeemah writes )
I sat up on my bed and my heart jumped to my mouth when i saw Quilah sitting beside me on the bed.
I shivered in fear and managed to scream.
I closed my eyes and screamed so loud in a deafening manner.
“Mara what’s wrong?” I heard and started opening my eyes little by little till i opened it completely.
I saw mum and Liam standing beside me,and Quilah gone!
I sighed in relief and looked at Liam.
“What’s wrong?…why did you scream like that?” Liam asked.
“I had a scary dream” I said breathing heavily.
“Yeah” I said…. Quilah is back… what the hell!
“Would you like to narrate the dream?” Mum asked.
I shook my head “No”
“Are you sure you are okay?” Liam asked.
“I’m fine” I said.
“Should we leave?” Mum asked.
“I’m leaving with you guys..I can’t stay here alone” I said and began to stand up.
I got up to find mum and Liam looking at me weirdly.
“What?” I asked.
“This behavior of yours is totally off” Mum said.
“I just told you i had a scary dream” I said..mum can be so pressing.
“Yeah I know,but you rarely dream not to talk of having a scary dream” She said.
“The novel you ordered,was it scary?” Liam asked.
“Hell no…it’s so interesting,the novel has nothing to do with the dream… Having a scary dream is normal and part of life” I said to clear their suspicion.
“Okay,let’s go to the living room” Mum said and i quickly jumped to their front.
I don’t want Quilah dragging my hair from the back.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
We got to the living room and Mum played her Kdrama to continue watching.
I kept breathing heavily..
“Tam what’s wrong?” Liam asked in a whisper.
“Nothing…it was just a dream” I said.
“You are not behaving like it’s just a dream. Is there anything else?” He asked.
Damn! Liam is just so inquisitive.
“Nothing else…I’m only reacting to the scariness of the dream” I said.
“Okay” he said and continued watching the movie.
What the hell have i gotten myself into..
I’m so dead!
I can’t sleep alone in that room tonight.
“Liam” I called.
“Huh?” He asked.
“I’m sleeping in your room tonight” I said.
“Okay” he said.
I’m so scared!!
“Wow…it’s late,Liam come with me to prepare dinner” Mum said.
“I will come with you” I said and jumped up..
I can’t stay alone in the living room.
“Thanks Tam” Liam smiled.
“Okay,come baby” Mum said,took my hand and we walked to the kitchen together.
“Grab your apron and cap” She said after grabbing hers.
I grabbed mine and quickly put it on.
We washed and dried our hands.
“Mara” Mum called.
“Are you sure you are okay?” She asked.
“Yes mum…I am” I said.
“You know you can confide in me huh? If anything is bothering you..feel free to tell mum okay?” Mum said and i nodded starting to get teary..
I hugged mum tight and she hugged me back..
I wish i could tell her everything…
But i can’t! I just can’t!
I sniffed and forced a smile…I disengaged from the hug.
“So Mum,what are we making for dinner ?” I asked.
“You decide” She said.
I raised my brows in thinking..
“Let’s make casserole” I said.
“Casserole?” She asked.
“I want more” Liam said with a mouthful.
We were done making Casserole.
I’ve went to serve Max and James theirs and here we are at the dining room eating ours.
“But you still have some casserole left in that plate” Mum said.
“Yeah…but I’m gonna be needing more” He said.
I can’t eat as much as i want…I’m not happy. I’m scared!
“Mara,you aren’t eating” Mum said.
“I will” I said and began eating.
“Make sure you finish it,you were the one who said we should make it for dinner” Mum said and i nodded.
“If you can’t finish it,just pass it to me okay?” Liam said with a grin.
I eyed him and concentrated on my meal.
Mum and I sat on the couch in the living room after dinner..
Liam is washing the dishes in the kitchen.
“Mum please,let’s watch US drama” I said.
“Please Mum, you’ve been watching Kdrama for long,just give me the chance tonight” I said.
“Okay, make use of the television in Liam’s room” She said.
“No! I want to make use of this” I said.
“But I’m watching a movie” She said.
“Please Mum” I pleaded.
Mum gave in after a lot of persuasion.
I happily inserted a US drama into the DVD player.
I took the remote control and went back to sit beside mum.
“Mum,you will find it more interesting than those Kdrama(s) Bryan gave me,he said it’s interesting” I said and watched as the Movie came into life.
We started watching it and i could tell Mum was enjoying it,so as i.
“This isn’t the kdrama we were watching” I heard Liam said.
I paused the movie and watch him sat down on the couch.
“It’s US drama” I said.
“Mum! Why did you allow her?” He asked mum with a frown.
I chuckled and stuck out my tongue.
“Let her watch her US drama tonight, we’ve being watching Kdrama” Mum said.
“But you could have just told her to make use of the television in your room or mine” He said.
“Let her be and moreover I’m enjoying this movie…it’s getting interesting” Mum said making me grin more.
“Also watch it” I said to Liam who shot me a glare.
I chuckled and played the movie..we continued watching it.
“It’s bedtime…” Mum said and grabbed the remote control from my hand.
She turned off the television and DVD player..I frowned.
“You will continue it tomorrow,once you are back from school” She said.
“Liam turn off the lights” Mum said standing up.
I suddenly remembered Quilah and clinged to Liam who shrug me off making me land back on the couch.
“Ouch..You are so wicked!” I said poking my finger at him.
He laughed and stuck out his tongue at me.
“My turn” he said.
I smirked….”You are so childish”
“Thanks for the compliment baby sis” He said.
“I’m not a baby!” I said.
“Okay…kid sis” he teased and i felt like knocking off his head.
“I’m not a kid!” I yelled.
“Enough of this drama…now up to your rooms” Mum said.
I stood up and followed Liam…
Mum walked at my back,we were about climbing the stairs when Mum switched off the lights..
I found myself screaming loud…
Mum quickly switched on the lights…
“Mara what’s wrong?”She asked worriedly.
“Why the scream?” Liam asked.
“I’m sorry,I got scared” I said regretting why the hell i screamed.
“But this isn’t the first time we are switching off the lights” Mum said.
“Yeah i know…I’m sorry” I said.
Liam sighed….”Tam are you sure you are okay?” He asked.
“I’m okay” I said.
“Okay…you both should go up to your room before i switch off the lights” Mum said.
Liam took my hand and we both climbed the stairs.
We got to the door of his room..
He opened it and we stepped in.
“Tam your hand is trembling…. what’s wrong?” He asked leading me to the bed.
I sat and he sat down beside me.
“There is nothing wrong” I said.
“There’s something wrong Tam, you’ve been acting skittish since you said you had a scary dream, it’s just a dream but you are acting out of proportion like something else happened” He said.
“Seriously…I’m fine, there’s nothing wrong with me…this is the first time im having a scary dream.. that’s the reason I’m behaving like this” I lied..
“Okay,but you know you can tell me anything right?” He asked and i nodded .
“Tam if i found out that you are keeping something away from me,i won’t forgive you again” Liam said seriously making me feel bad.
I wish i can tell them everything…
But i can’t! I just can’t.
“I’m not keeping anything away from you Liam.. trust me it’s just a dream” I said with a fake smile.
“Don’t smile if you don’t want to,you don’t have to fake your smile. You should know i know your real smile” He said.
Damn! He caught me.
He laid flat on the bed and picked his phone.
“Make use of Maya’s pajamas in the wardrobe” He said and i grinned.
Maya is one of his ex-girl friends whom he always sneak into his room whenever mum is around.
He would buy me pizza to keep my mouth shut and i would..
I remembered when he broke up with her.
Maya gave me $500 to beg Liam but once Liam is done with someone… that’s the end.
More ladies have come and gone.
What a Playboy bro i have.
“Why are you grinning?” He asked making me jump out of my thoughts.
“Why are you smiling?” He asked making me chuckle.
“Why are you chuckling?” He asked making me giggle.
“Why are you giggling?” He asked making me laugh.
He hit my head with his hand.
“You are starting to get naughty” He said with a smirk.
“So i was right!” He exclaimed..”I need a stronger object to hit your head” he said starting to get up .
“No…no i was thinking about Maya” I said and he sat down and rolled his eyes.
“Do you miss her?” I asked.
“No…I don’t miss anyone,you know that” he said.
“Like you are most handsome guy?” I asked.
“Nay..I’m not but i should be counted among the handsome guys” He said with pride.
“What of Miguel Sydney,you know there’s still a debate going on about him being the most handsome guy on earth” I said.
“Yeah…that guy is damn handsome…I’ve not seen anyone as handsome as him. I want to get married to someone as beautiful as his wife” Liam said with a grin.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yeah… I’ll be going to Mexico soon, then im gonna make sure im close to Fallen angels..you know they are both beautiful so their families will surely have beautiful breeds,then I’m gonna select the one i love…you know I’m handsome so it’s not gonna be difficult for me” he said.
“In your dream” I laughed…
“So you don’t trust me to do that?” He asked.
“I do but even if you go to Mexico,you may not be allowed to have access to Fallen angels.. don’t you know how famous they are..they are always surrounded with hefty bodyguards” I said.
“Yeah..I know but i have my plans” he said.
“Really? … Are you serious about this?” I asked.
“Yes i am… trust me” he said seriously.
“Wow…that means I’m also gonna be relative to fallen angels,go on … I’m in complete support of you” I said happily.
“Thanks sis” he smiled.
“I hope you know they are having concert here in Paris in few weeks” I said.
“Yeah I’m aware…I’m going to get my ticket tomorrow” he said.
“We’ve gone to got ours” I said.
“You and Bryan right?”
“With Kelly and Ellen” I said.
“Who is Kelly?” He asked.
“He’s our new friend,he’s so nice and cool” I said.
“Oh..you mean that guy i saw with you guys?”
“Exactly! He’s the one” I smiled.
“Okay.” Liam said.
I sighted the drawing Bryan gave to Liam… it’s pasted on the wall just beside his bed..
It’s so perfect and beautiful.
“He’s so good” I said.
“Who?” Liam asked.
I suddenly realized i said that aloud.
I scratched my hair and he traced my gaze to the drawing on the wall.
He smiled “Yeah Bryan is so good..I cherish this drawing more than anything” He said.
“Do you like Bryan?” He asked making my cheeks turn red instantly..
My heart accelerated at the mere mention of his name and i suddenly began thinking about him.
Liam laughed…”I know you like Bryan” he said.
“No i don’t” I lied with my cheeks getting hotter.
“You are not good at lieing” he said.
“Aren’t you both sleeping yet?” We heard mum yelled from the door.
“We are already sleeping” Liam said.
I smiled and walked to the wardrobe.
I pulled it open and saw various outfits..
Liam is a fashion icon… his dressing is always perfect and hot..
That’s one of the things that attract ladies to him.
I picked Maya’s yellow pajamas which was folded neatly on the top board.
I closed the wardrobe and walked to the bathroom.
Liam’s bathroom is completely different from mine.
It’s bigger,more beautiful and neat.
Everything is in cool blue and white.
I placed the pajamas on the bathroom cabinet,then picked a toothbrush and paste.
I strolled to the sink, turned on the faucet and started brushing..
I finished brushing,rinsed the brush then my mouth.
I turned off the faucet and walked back to drop the toothbrush and paste.
I started pulling off my clothe…
I picked the blue shower cap and wore it over my hair.
I finished showering and saw two towels, blue and white,hanged on the towel hanger.
I picked the blue and wrapped it around my body.
I started drying my body…
I pulled on the pajamas,it’s a bit big but i like it..
It’s so free and silky.
I removed the shower cap and threw it in the cabinet.
I spread the towel on the hanger,then picked my clothes.
I threw it alongside with Liam’s laundry.
I sighed and walked out of the bathroom..
I jumped on the bed beside Liam and drew his hair.
“You are so troublesome” He said and made to drag my pointed nose.
I shifted my head back and he ended up dragging my mouth.
We both laughed.
“I’m going to have my night bath” He said and stood up from the bed.
He walked to the wardrobe, opened it and picked his blue pajamas.
He winked at me before strolling into the bathroom.
I picked his phone and turned it on, revealing the lock screen wallpaper …Mum,dad, Liam and i..I could remember it was when we went to Castillo park…I missed Dad
I unlocked it to play games but i came across his chat with a girl..Oona.
I don’t feel like reading it cause i already know what it’s about but i had to satisfy my curiosity.
Liam is gonna be pissed,he doesn’t like me going through his chats.
Oona: Liam why are you doing this to me?
Oona: I love you Liam,you can’t leave me
Liam: When we started this relationship,i told you its just for fun. I don’t love you.
Oona: Yeah…you did but i fell in love with you… Please Liam,i will give you more of my body.
Liam: I’m done with you… don’t you get that?
Oona: please Liam, you can’t do this to me.
Liam: (Message seen)
Liam is a heartbreaker.
I exit the WhatsApp and scrolled through the applications..
I clicked on the game app and saw different games.
I selected Criminal case…I love this game a lot.
Actually…I love any detective game,movie and novel.
I began playing it…
I was solving cases, investigating crimes, going to the next level, upgrading my representative in the game and enjoying every bit of it.
“What’s this fatty doing with my phone?” I heard Liam asked.
He laid beside me on the bed and peered into the phone.
“I’m not fat anymore!” I snapped.
“Yeah i know,you are now looking more beautiful than most of my girlfriends” he said.
I smiled….”Of course”.
“Criminal case? You love dull games a lot” He said.
“It’s not dull” I said.
“It is” he said.
“If it is,then how come you have it on your phone?” I asked and he shrugged.
“I didn’t know it was dull till i downloaded it and played it” he said.
“Whatever” I scoffed…”it’s not dull to me”.
I yawned and exited the game…
“It’s past bedtime” I said and shifted closer to a pillow.
I placed my head on it.
“Good night Liam” I said.
“Night Tam” he pecked my forehead.
“Make sure you dream about Bryan” he said.
I shot him a glare…
I closed my eyes and yawned, wishing desperately to dream about Bryan.
I slept off….
“Wake up,sleepy head” I heard Liam said from my sleep.
He shook me.
“Leave me alone” I said sleepily.
“It’s 8’o clock” He said making me jump out of bed.
“Really?” I said,my eyes getting clearer.
He’s putting on a pair of blue shorts which is the same as his top..his blonde hair is packed in a short ponytail.. he’s wearing blue trainers with long white socks.
There are signs of sweat on his face and muscles and i know he’s just coming back from his early morning workout.
“I was only joking” he laughed.
I picked a pillow and threw it directly at his head.
It didn’t have any effect cause it’s as soft as silk.
I’m gonna get back at him!
I stood up and stretched…
“Come, follow me to my room” I said.
“Why?” He asked.
“I need to dress up for school and i can’t stay alone in that room” I said.
“Tam..when did you began getting scared?” He asked.
“That scary dream keeps replaying in my head” I lied.
“Ahh.. okay, hold on..let me pull off this socks and trainers” He said and began pulling it off.
“Be fast,i have to go dress for school” I said.
“It’s because of you i won’t even bath..you know i bath right after im back from my workout” He said.
“Yeah i know,you will bath in my bathroom once I’m done bathing” I said.
“In that small bathroom of yours? Hell no!” He said making me feel like hitting him.
“Let’s go” he said and took my hand.
We both walked out of his room..
“Go in first” I said when we got to the door of my room.
He opened the door and walked in.
I walked in behind him expecting to see Quilah on the bed but nothing was there.
Liam sat on the bed.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“Why are you standing there, won’t you get on with bathing and dressing for school” He said.
I walked to the wardrobe, opened it and started picking out my school uniform.
I closed it after i was done,then opened the drawer and selected my undies.i held it together with my school uniform.
“Your password?” Liam asked and I turned to see him holding my phone.
Damn! How will i tell him it’s Bryan i used for my password after denying that i don’t like him.
“Bring it,I’m gonna unlock it for you” I said.
“Are you hiding your password from me?” He asked.
|Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 1:16pm On Nov 01, 2019|
“What?” He asked.
“I’m not hiding it from you” I said.
“Then why don’t you wanna tell me?” He asked.
“Okay…it’s B..ryan” I managed to say and quickly turned away..
“I thought as much” He laughed.
I turned back at him and he winked.
Liam is damn cute! I can see the reason he keeps breaking girls heart.
If i were as beautiful and fit as him…I won’t have gone through hell.
I picked my body towel together with my school uniform and undies…I walked into the bathroom and closed the door behind me.
I finished dressing up in the bathroom..
I walked back to my room…
I stood in fear when i didn’t find Liam on the room.
Thoughts of Quilah came running through my head.
“Liam!” I screamed in fear.
I heard his laughter behind me.
I turned,then flinched when i saw Liam hiding right beside the wardrobe.
He laughed…”Damn! Tam,you thought i was gone and you started screaming your head off”
“Liam…you are crazy” I said and picked my school shoe from the shoe rack.
I was about hitting him with it.
“If you hit me with that…I’m gonna leave your room” He said making me stop halfway.
I sulked before dropping the shoe.
I sat on the chair facing my dressing table.
I started applying body lotion,after i was done with that. I picked an hair brush, applied little hair lotion on my hair and started brushing it.
“Should i pack it in a ponytail or just leave it?” I asked Liam.
“However you like it” he said.
“Don’t you know how your girlfriends do theirs” I teased.
“I knew you were starting to get naughty right from yesterday night” He said
“Okay…just leave it,let if flow down your back..it’s more beautiful and sexy that way” He said and i smiled.
“Okay” I said and let down my hair.
“Pass me my shoe Liam” I said.
He dropped a pair of blue school shoes beside me.
“So you expect me to wear these…pass me the black one” I said.
“Wear these…try to be looking different everyday,you can’t just be wearing those black shoes, when you have various of beautiful school shoes” He said.
I smiled…”Awwn… that’s true…I love you Liam” I said and started slipping my pop-socked feet into the pair of blue I smiled…”Awwn… that’s true…I love you Liam” I said and started slipping my pop-socked feet into the pair of blue shoes.
“I’ve heard that severally” he said.
“From your girlfriends right?” I asked.
He shot me a look.
I stood up from the chair and positioned myself right in front of the mirror.
Wow!…I’m looking more beautiful.
I picked my backpack and hung it round my shoulders making me look great.
I smiled…”how do i look,do i look better than your girlfriends?” I asked.
“Why do you keep talking about girlfri__ wait… don’t tell me you went through my chats?” He asked already coming closer to me.
Thank God I’m fully dressed….Time to run!
“Yeah…I went through it” I said and ran out of my room laughing hysterically as Liam chased me.
I quickly ran down the stairs…then into the kitchen to meet mum..
I know I’m safe with her..
“What’s making you ru.” Mum was saying when Liam ran into the kitchen.
I stood at her back and laughed.
“What happened?” Mum asked?.
“I went through his chats” I whispered to Mum.
She nodded and smiled…
“You shouldn’t have done that” she said.
“I didn’t mean to,i just came across it” I said.
“Apologize” she said.
“I’m sorry Liam…I’m gonna make the most delicious pasta and Chicken for you once I’m back from school” I said.
“Are you sure?” He asked.
“Yes” I said coming out from mum’s back.
“Okay you are spared…I need to go bath,take your iPhonehone” he said.
I smiled and stretched my hand to collect it.
He hit it on my hand hardly.
“That’s for going through my chats and you dare not make the pasta and chicken once you are back from school” He said,then dropped my phone on the fridge before walking away.
I smirked behind him..
“So wicked!” I said and turned back to Mum.
“Take your breakfast” She said pointing to a tray containing croissants and hot chocolate.
I grinned…”Thanks Mum”
I finished eating my breakfast,then sat down waiting for Bryan to come pick me.
“Good morning class” Mr Tommy said.
“Good morning Mr Tommy” we chorused.
Bryan came to pick me and had admired the way i let down my hair and also my shoes.
When we walked into the class..the students admired my shoes asking various questions about where i bought it..I felt so high.
I told them my mum ordered it from B&M.
Most of them said they are gonna get the same..they kept snapping it.
I love you Liam
I saw another wound on Kelly’s arm but decided not to ask about it.
Why does he keep getting wounded?
Is he probably involved in some dangerous business?
I hope not!
“So class,we are in the second week of Grade 8 and in your scheme of work,the second week involves practical…I’m gonna pair you in twos and you will come forward to collect what your practical contains,you are gonna do it over the weekend and submit it on Monday” He said and everyone was silent.
He began the pairing..and i was praying earnestly to be paired with Bryan
“Ally Silver and John Tom” he called and a girl and a boy stood up and walked to the front of the classroom.
They collected their practical rule and walked back to their seat.
He kept calling names…
“Felia Daniels and Eric Hunter” They also went forward to collect their practical rule.
“Sabrina Martin and Ravin Luther”…..
“Jessie Baird and Ellen Blaise” He called and both Jessie and Ellen walked to the front of the class to collect their practical rule.
Why is Jessie smiling?
“Kelly Yates and Tamara Weston” he called and i felt my heart shatter.
I want Bryan!!
|Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 1:17pm On Nov 01, 2019|
JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
(Zeemah writes )
“Kelly Yates and Tamara Weston”
“I want Bryan!”
Kelly looked at me with a smile and i quickly faked a smile too.
We both walked to the front of the class, collected our practical rule and walked back to our seats.
“Bryan Shaw Laura Jingle”
Damn! This girl have always had a crush on Bryan.
All the females in the class have a crush on Bryan and i know how happy this lucky girl will be.
Bryan sighed and stood up..
Everyone watched as he walked with the girl to the front of the classroom.
They collected their practical rule and walked back to their seats.
“I wish we were paired together” Bryan said.
I smiled… feeling so happy he’s starting to want my company.
“Me too” I said.
“But it’s fine…that gurl isn’t that bad” He said and waved to Laura,who blushed and waved back happily.
She turned to her friends and they began their gossip.
She’s quite beautiful with a thick brown hair which is long to her shoulders,her nose isn’t very pointed,her eyes is the most beautiful part of her face,it’s pure blue and it made her fair skin stood out…I’ve always gotten jealous of her eyes..
I held myself from hissing…
“Now I’m done with calling out the pairs,you can all check your practical and discuss it with your partner…I will be expecting the results on Monday” Mr Tommy said and walked out of the classroom.
Everyone started discussing with their partner.
Laura has jumped to Bryan’s seat, smiling happily as Bryan told her how they were gonna do it their practical.
“So, your house or mine?” She asked gleefully.
I felt my heart ripping….is this girl crazy!
Well…they are practical mate..
“My house … I’m gonna text you my address” Bryan said.
“Hey! He’s my boyfriend okay, don’t try to pull up any naughty act while at his place” Ellen snapped at Laura who nodded,her stupid smile faded away.
Yeah… that’s good!
“Tammy… won’t we discuss our practical?” I heard Kelly asked.
“Oh..I’m sorry” I said and turned to him.
“So…we were asked to knit a cotton sweater and a cap” he said and my eyes widened.
“What the hell! I don’t know how to knit” I said.
“Well … I do, and I’m gonna teach you” he said.
“Awwwn, thanks Kelly…so your house or mine?” I asked.
“Yours” he said a bit too hurriedly.
“Ohhkay…till Saturday then” I said and turned back to face Bryan.
Laura has gone back to her seat,she kept looking back at interval.
“Bryan what were you asked to make?” I asked.
“A pillow case and bed spread” he said.
“Wow! Can you do that?” I asked.
“No but Laura said she can,her mum is a seamstress” He said.
I nodded and felt like hitting Laura’s head with the bottom of my pen.
“What were you asked to make?” He asked.
“Knit a cotton sweater and cap” I said.
“You don’t know how to knit” Bryan said.
“Yeah…but Kelly is gonna teach me” I said.
“Okay” he said.
“Yes! Kelly,the novel you borrowed me was awesome,I’ve ordered mine also” I said and unzipped my backpack.
I brought out the one he borrowed me and stretched it to him.
“Thanks” I said..he nodded and started opening the pages.
“Bryan,have you ordered the novel?” I asked.
“Yes! I ordered it and read it thrice..it’s so interesting and i had to borrow Kim..you know she’s a novel freak like me” He said and i nodded.
“Yeah…my greetings to Kim,I’ve missed her” I said.
“Okay, check out this game…I just downloaded it” he said and gave me his iPod.
“Ellen what were you asked to make?” I asked.
“I don’t think i need to tell you that” She said.
“Okay” I said slowly and sadly.
Bryan patted my hand..
I smiled and looked up at him…
Just his eyes alone reassured me, looking at this handsome face alone healed all my pains.
Bryan..I love you! Why don’t you get that!
“Hey! Why are you two looking at yourselves like a couple” We heard a thick voice said.
Everyone turned to look at us and my cheeks forcefully went red on it’s own.
Bryan laughed…”You all should face your work,she’s my best friend and there is no crime in staring into her beautiful face”
“He seems in love with her”
“They are so cute”
“No! I own Bryan”
“I really hope they are just friends”…. The class chorused.
I think my cheeks had turned purple.
I placed my head on the desk..
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“Quit blushing Mara…it made your cheeks look like wholesale tomatoes” Bryan whispered to me.
I smiled…and raised up my head.
I suddenly met Kelly piercing gaze…I gave him a questioning look and he took his gaze away.
“Good morning class, so let’s move to today’s topic” Mrs Hampton said.
“That practical is gonna be hell” I said and threw one fries in my mouth.
“Yeah… knitting is not very simple” Kelly said.
“You are lucky to be paired with a friend..” Bryan said.
“I wish the big headed Mr Tommy can just change that pairing…I don’t really like Jessie” Ellen said.
“You can go talk to Mr Tommy that you want a change of your pair,you know he likes you” I said.
“Hey! I was not talking to you,you can see i was referring to Bryan and Kelly” She said.
“Hey! Who said i was talking to you,i was talking to Bryan” I defended making her face dropped… she’s the one i was talking to but i gotta defend myself.
Bryan and Kelly tried to hold themselves from laughing.
I continued my eating my fries…
I raised up my head to see Jessie standing beside our table with her tray of lunch.
What’s she trying to do?
“Hi partner” She said to Ellen who smiled.
“Can i sit?” She asked.
“Of course” Ellen said shifting out a chair.
“But she isn’t the only one in this table..you should ask the rest of us if you can sit” I said.
“She doesn’t need permission from you or anyone to sit…this isn’t your table” Ellen yelled.
“You don’t have to yell over trival matters…it’s gonna make you age faster” I said.
“Whatever” She scoffed.
I looked at Bryan who was busy with iPod leaving his lunch untouched.
“Bryan why aren’t you eating?” I asked.
“Nothing” he said with a smile.
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Should i eat it then” I teased.
I laughed when he grabbed it closer to him..
He started eating..
I craved for ice cream when i saw a student running off with a cup of ice cream..
“I’m coming guys” I said and stood up.
“Hi, please i need ice cream” I said to the woman.
“Awwn…I’m sorry,the last one was just ordered, they’ve gone to get the supplies…if they return before lunch break is over,then I’m gonna serve you” She said to my disappointment.
“Okay” I shrugged and turned back,i began walking back to my seat.
I hissed as the cafeteria light were off.
I’ve not finished my fries.
I walked out of the cafeteria alone and headed to the garden.
I don’t know,i suddenly had a change of mood.
I sat down on one of the benches and stared into space..
I was thinking about nothing in particular when i felt pain in my stomach.
I tapped my feet on the grass and laid flat on my stomach.
I started crying as the pain was increasing.
“Mara i’ve been searching everywhere for you. Are you okay?” I heard Bryan asked.
I opened my eyes and saw him crouched beside me.
I nodded and managed to sit up.
“Please help me call Ellen” I said.
“What happened?” He asked.
“Just help me call Ellen” I snapped…I didn’t mean to snap at him but i can’t help it.
“Okay…I’m coming” he said and walked out of the garden.
I should have known before i left home in the morning…I was busy thinking about Quilah.
Bryan returned alone…
“Where’s she?” I asked.
“She..she doesn’t want to come” he said.
“Aaaargh” I groaned in pain, and held on to my stomach.
“OMG Mara what’s wrong?” He asked worriedly.
I’ve begun tearing up again..
This is just too painful!
“C..cr.. cramps” I managed.
“Ahh sorry,get up let’s go to the school infirmary” he said but i shook my head.
“Why don’t you wanna go?” He asked.
“My skirt is all stained… just help me call Ellen.. please” I cried.
“Okay but are you sure you will be fine” he said and stood.
He ran out of the garden…
He returned few minutes later with Laura.
“Where’s Ellen?” I asked in pain.
“She doesn’t want to come…i begged her but she refused to come so i called on Laura, she’s with the things you will need..let me head back to class..Be fine okay?” He said and pecked my cheeks.
My pains disappeared for a moment,then returned the moment he left the garden.
“Hi I’m Laura” She said.
“I don’t need introductions” I said.
She smiled…”Sorry…I know how you are feeling right now,let me help you up” She said and began helping me up.
Why is she pretending to be nice huh?
I wish it was Ellen !
But she’s just being cruel!
I sat alone in the class,with my head placed on the desk.
I cried in pain as i battled with my stomach.
It’s sport time, everyone is on the field.
I’m seeing a little part of the field from the window.
I’m grateful for Laura’s help,she seems nice.
She gave me her skirt and told me she’s gonna wear her sport outfit home.
I raised up my head when i heard footsteps..
“Mara sorry huh?” He said and i nodded.
He sat on his seat which is beside mine.
“Aren’t you supposed to be on the field?” I asked.
“Not when you are in pains” he said with care which aroused a different type of feeling.
“Thanks but don’t worry about me…just go and continue your sport” I said.
“No…i want to stay here with you” he said.
I smiled and stared at him..
“Thanks Kelly” I said.
“It’s nothing” He said…”i hope the pain has relieved you a bit?”
“Yeah it has…I feel better” I said.
We turned to the front of the classroom when we heard another set of footsteps.
It’s Bryan and Laura.
Bryan smiled as they walked up to us.
I smiled back.
“Tamara are you okay now?” Laura asked.
“Yeah.. thanks I’m fine” I said.
“Sorry i couldn’t stay with you…Mr Curt didn’t allow me out of the field..I had to sneak here with Laura” he said and held my hand.
“Mr Curt is gonna punish you if he finds out” I said worriedly.
“He isn’t gonna find out” he said.
I smiled..”I hope so”
“Thank God Kelly has been keeping you company before i arrived” Bryan said..
I looked at Kelly but noticed his face expression had changed.
What’s wrong with him?
Bryan sat beside me…
“Okay, which song do you want me to sing for you?” He asked.
“Till i met you by Fallen angels” I said happily.
“I think i will go back to the field” Laura said and walked away.
“Okay Laura, thanks for your help” Bryan said.
“You are welcome” she said.
Bryan cleared his throat…
He started singing and all i could do was laugh.
Bryan has such a terrible voice…
Everyone returned to the class after sport.
Some had changed back to their school uniform.
I saw Ellen barging towards us…
“So you were here with her right?..you left the field for someone who is incapable of calculating her menstrual cycle” Ellen said so loud that everyone turned to look at me.
I placed my head on the desk in embarrassment.
How could Ellen do this to me..
This is gonna be topic of the school for a whole week.
“Ellen are you crazy…what the hell is wrong with you?” Bryan asked angrily.
Murmurs were starting to take over the class and i can’t feel more embarrassed than this.
“You wanna know what the hell is wrong with me right? I will be right back” She said and walked out of the classroom.
“Mara I’m sorry” Bryan said.
“You are sorry for what?” I asked not able to raise up my head.
I know the students are waiting to send daggers at me.
“I’m sorry on her behalf” He said.
“Mara but you said you guys are friends,how could she do this to you?” Kelly asked.
I felt tears well up in my eyes…
I heard Bryan gasp..I raised up my head and traced his gaze..
I saw Ellen walking in with Mr Curt.
“Bryan Shaw,i was told you sneaked away from the field while sport is going on..come with me to serve your punishment” Mr Curt said.
Oh no! Mr Curt punishment is hell!
“Mr Curt..he cam…”
“Shut up!” He barked interrupting me.
“Now Bryan Shaw, come with me” he said.
Bryan stood up,gave Ellen a long stare before walking out of the classroom with Mr Curt.
“Bryan…I’m coming with you” I said and stood up.
“No..no don’t come with me” he said.
“I’m coming with you” I insisted already getting out of my seat.
“Mara don’t come with me,i will be fine” He said.
“I have to come with you,we are serving the punishment together…it’s because of me you are about to be punished” I cried.
“Kelly, don’t allow her come with me, she’s in pains” Bryan said to Kelly before finally walking our with Mr Curt.
Kelly stood up and led me back to my seat.
“Just let me go with him okay?” I said starting to tear up again.
“No you can’t Mara…you can’t” Kelly.
“Ellen you are so cruel…you are not fit to be among humans” I yelled in anger as I made to hit her.
I felt someone held my hand,i turned to see it’s Laura.
I dragged my hand from her grip.
“Mara…it’s okay,let her be” She said to me.
“Do you know how severe Mr Curt’s punishment is… Bryan is gonna run round that wide field for more than fourty times after that he’s gonna get whipped by Mr Curt,me Curt is gonna add to the punishment cause Bryan is the leader of the volleyball practice… Bryan is gonna be in pains just because of this fool and you’re telling me not to hit her” I cried.
Makers high school is a British military school,we get punished according to how our offense is ..

I sank on my seat when the terrible pain returned..
I cried and looked outside the window waiting to see Bryan.
I gripped my stomach as the pain increased drastically..
Sometimes i just wonder why I’m a female!
I sniffled and placed my head on the desk.
“Sorry” Kelly and Laura said to me.
I nodded with my head still on the desk.
I raised up my head few minutes later..I noticed Laura was stood beside me after Kelly gave her a sign.
What’s that for?… Anyways i don’t care.
“Laura please move,you are obstructing my view to the window” I said.
I need to see if Bryan has started his punishment.
“Huh?” She asked.
“Move” I said.
“Mara…look at this” Kelly said and i turned to face him.
“What?” I asked.
“What?” I asked again.
I turned back to Laura who hasn’t move.
“Laura move” I said but she didn’t..
I pushed her and my gaze went straight to the window.
I saw Bryan sweating profusely as he ran round the garden.
Mr Curt kept hitting him anytime he slowed down.
Other students also watched,i noticed Ellen concentrated on her phone.
I held myself from beating her badly.
Bryan fell down on his chest,Mr Curt slashed his back with a whip.
I started crying as i watched how he struggled to stand up and started running.
I stood up and walked closer to the window.
“Bryan I’m sorry” I called loudly to his hearing.
He stopped running and turned to look at me.
He smiled but i saw pain beneath that smile.
“Don’t be sorry Mara…I’m perfectly fine,stop crying okay?” he said and continued running before Mr Curt could get to him.
I cried as i held on to the window…
Bryan,he’s still going to get flogged after this.
“Now,lay on the field with your back up” Mr Curt ordered after Bryan finished running.
“Mara,just go and sit..I know you won’t be able to watch Bryan get flogged” Kelly said to me.
He’s also standing beside me,with Laura.
“Let me be, please” I snapped and turned my attention back to Bryan.
He’s laying on the grass,his direction was towards us.
Mr Curt got his whip ready and i saw how tired Bryan is.
He’s looking at me with a smile..
“I’m sorry” I muttered.
“I’m fine” I read his lips.
I gripped the window steel as a stroke of whip landed on his back.
“It’s not painful” I read his lips.
It’s damn painful!
Bryan stop trying to be strong! That thing is damn painful.
I didn’t know I’ve started weeping until Laura passed me an handkerchief.
I collected it and wiped my face, blowing my runny nose into it.
“You are a leader in sport and yet you sneaked out of the field,what example do you want to give your followers” Mr Curt said and kept flogging Bryan who is starting to groan in pain.
It felt like i was the one,who was getting flogged.
Every stroke that landed on Bryan’s back affected me and also brought tears to my eyes.
I started crying loud when i saw tears dropping out of Bryan’s eyes.
He has held on for long…now the pain is unbearable..
He isn’t gonna take the pain alone.
I pushed a student out of the way as i ran out of the classroom and headed to the field.
I got there when Mr Curt was about landing another stroke on Bryan’s back.
I moved fast enough and laid on his back.
The stroke hit me and damn! The pain was terrible.
“Mara get up! Go to the class…I’m fine!” Bryan yelled at me.
“I’m not going to the class!.. Mr Curt hit me,you’ve flogged him enough,he sneaked out of the field because of me” I said still nursing the pain the stroke of the whip gave me.
“Mr Curt, don’t flog her,just continue with me..she’s out of her mind” Bryan said.
“She’s on your back and i can’t hit you without hitting her first” Mr Curt said.
“Mara get off my back!” Bryan yelled.
“I’m not getting off…Mr Curt flog me!” I yelled.
“Mr Curt don’t flog her” Bryan said rolling me off his back.
I quickly climbed back on his back and the next stroke hit me again.
Mr Curt continued the flogging and i was starting to cry in pain..
Bryan kept yelling for me to get off his back but i ignored and held on to him tightly.
I felt the weight of someone on my back,i turned and saw it was Laura.
Her blue eyes welled with tears!
What the hell!
“Laura get off…he’s gonna hit you” I said.
“Yeah…he has flogged you enough,let him flog me” she said.
“No Laura get off” I said.
“Both of you should get off my back” Bryan said.
“What’s all these?” Mr Curt yelled..
“I sneaked out of the field with Bryan,so please flog me too” Laura said..
I tried rolling her off my back but she held on to me tightly.
“Really?..you mean,you also sneaked out of the field?” Mr Curt asked.
“Yes” Laura said.
“Good!” He said and landed a stroke of whip on her back.
She screamed in pain as Mr Curt kept on hitting her.
“Laura i told you to get off my back!”
“Mr Curt,i also sneaked out of the field” We heard Kelly said and turned to his direction.
“Really?” Mr Curt asked.
“Yeah” he said and laid on the grass beside Bryan.
“I’m done with you guys” He said to us and started hitting Kelly..
Bryan jumped on Kelly’s back and ended up being flogged,i jumped on Bryan’s back and ended up being flogged.
Laura jumped on my back and ended up being flogged also..
We made four layers as we ended up jumping on each other’s back anytime Mr Curt wants to flog any of us.
We all sat on the grass,in pain after Mr Curt left.
“Mara are you okay?” Bryan asked.
“Why did you get on my back…I told you not to” he said.
“But you were being flogged because of me” I said and tightened my eyes i felt pains on my back.
“Thanks bestie” He said and hugged me.
He sighed and turned to Kelly.
“Kelly are you okay?” He asked.
“Yeah I’m fine” Kelly said weakly.
“You shouldn’t have told Mr Curt, that you also sneaked out of the field” Bryan said to him.
“I can’t watch you being punished” He said..
“Thanks buddy” he said and hugged Kelly.
He turned to Laura..
“Laura are you okay?” He asked.
“Yeah I’m fine” she smiled but i caught her held on to her back.
She’s in pains…so as everyone.
“I’m surprised you also joined this stubborn people” He said pointing to Kelly and i.
We hit his head and he let out an “Ow!”
“It’s nothing..I just felt it’s nice to help my partner” She said.
“Thanks Laura” he said and hugged her.
She blushed terribly making me want to hit her but i restrained myself.
“Let’s go to the class” Bryan said and we all stood up.
I saw Kelly sway but he quickly stood back on his feet.
Is he okay?
We were starting to walk to the class when Laura screamed.
We turned and saw Kelly laying unconscious on the floor.
We rushed to him..
“Kelly” we shouted and shook him but he didn’t respond.
“Someone should come help” Laura shouted.
“Kelly” I said worriedly and shook him..
Just then his button opened and i sighted a very deep wound and various scars on his chest.

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)

(Zeemah writes )
Mara, Laura and i stood in the infirmary as the nurse attended to Kelly who is laying unconscious on the bed.
My back is stinging in pain and i had to keep rubbing it through my shirt.
Kelly’s shirt has been pulled off and seeing the scars and wound made my heart heavy.
He has hurt so much!
He’s in pains yet he kept mute about it!
Is he being maltreated?
He never talked about his family.
I can’t wait for him to be awake… there is a lot to ask him.
I watched Laura as she stood beside Mara.
I hadn’t known she was this nice.
Someone i just got to know to today received strokes for me, cried for me and now worried about my friend.
She has a very caring heart and i don’t regret being paired with her.
I would like to know her better.
“Seriously,we have to report this to the school board! Mr Curt’s punishment was extreme and above the law of the school” Laura said.
“Yeah…decree 25 of Makers high school says that “Do not punish students extremely..punish them according to their offense” Mara said.
“Yeah,and decree 12 of Makers high school says any offense involving sport activities; the punishment is just to run round the field forty times and not more than that! But Mr Curt flogged us” Laura said.
“I’m the leader of the volleyball practice,so my punishment has to be extreme…we can’t report this to the school board if we don’t want this matter to go further” i said.
“But Mr Curt’s punishment was over the extreme,just imagine.. Kelly is laying there unconscious after Mr Curt flogged him” Mara said.
“Kelly Yates isn’t unconscious because of Mr Curt’s strokes..he has been nursing this deep wound on his chest without medical care,the wound has contacted some bacteria and it spread all over his body,that was what made him unconscious,but I’ve treated the wound and I’ve given him antibiotics and also placed him on drip. If he isn’t conscious in the next two hours,he’s gonna be transferred to the hospital” The nurse said,picked her little tray and left.
We rushed to Kelly on the bed…
He’s breathing fine but his eyes is shut.
Mara held his hand and started crying.
“Kelly,why couldn’t you tell us about all this? Just open your eyes and explain how you got this scars and wound ” Mara cried.
I felt guilty…yeah,cause I’m always seeing little wounds on his arm but never asked him about it.
I held his second hand and prayed earnestly for him to wake up.
I don’t want him transferred to the hospital.
Time is ticking fast…
One and half hour had gone and Kelly isn’t yet to open his eyes.
The nurses were starting to prepare how to transfer him to the hospital.
Our gazes were fixed on his closed eyes..
“Kelly they are about transferring you to the hospital… won’t you open your eyes” Mara said in tears.
She’s just so emotional…
I saw Kelly batted an eyelid…I quickly called Mara’s attention to it.
She and Laura also watched him bat an eyelid and he did that slowly till his eyes opened..
“He’s awake!” Mara shouted..
I noticed his grip tightened on my hand as he struggled to recollect what happened.
Two nurses walked into the ward and started another roll of treatment on him.
Solely written by Azeemah Salami
We watched in anticipation as he kept opening and closing his eyes..
It’s so obvious he’s in pains…
I felt damn sorry for him!
“He’s weak right now and needs to rest,none of you should disturb him…he’s gonna go to sleep now and he’ll be stronger once he wakes up…we’ve treated him and he will be fine okay?” One of the nurses said and we nodded.
They both walked away.
“Kelly how are you feeling?” Mara asked.
“We were told not to disturb him…let him sleep” I said.
She nodded and stood back…we watched Kelly worriedly as he closed his eyes and started to sleep.
School is over but Kelly isn’t awake yet.
“Wow… time is far spent” I said.
“Yeah…I can’t believe we missed some subjects today” Mara said.
“I’m gonna ask my friends for the notes,then we are gonna copy it” Laura.
“Ohh…that will be nice” Mara said.
“Laura, school is over.. won’t you leave for home?” I asked.
She shook her head…”No…I will be here with you guys till Kelly is awake”
“Wow!” Mara exclaimed.
“Won’t your parents be worried?” I asked.
“Actually it’s a parent…I lost my dad to leukemia when i was a kid so I’m just with my mum now” She said.
“So sorry about that” Mara and i said.
“It’s okay… it’s long gone” She said.
“Let’s go pick our backpacks” Mara said.
“You guys should go…I will stay with Kelly” I said.
“Okay,Laura come on” Mara said and she and Laura both walked out of the infirmary.
I sighed and turned back to Kelly..
He’s awake! Smiling..
We picked our backpacks and also picked Kelly’s and Bryan’s.
Actually i was holding Bryan’s and backing mine while Laura was holding Kelly’s and backing hers.
She said goodbye to her friends and we walked back to the infirmary.
Ellen wasn’t in class and she’s lucky she isn’t!
We entered the infirmary and smiled on seeing Kelly awake..
He’s sitting up and discussing with Bryan.
The nurse was right,she said he’s gonna be stronger and he is!
“Thank goodness you are awake Kelly,how are you feeling?” I asked as i passed Bryan’s backpack to him.
Laura dropped Kelly’s beside the bed.
“I’m feeling far better” he said and smiled.
“I hope the pain has lessened?” Laura asked.
“Yeah.. thanks” he said.
“Thanks everyone for caring for me,you all made me feel loved” He said and we smiled.
“It’s nothing Kelly” we chorused.
“But i wanna ask…how did you came about this scars and wound on your chest?” I asked curiously..
I’ve been so worried about that since he was laying unconscious.
He sighed…”I don’t want to talk about that”
“Are you being maltreated?..we can go report at the human rights institute” Bryan said.
“Of course no! I’m not being maltreated,i live with my parents and they take very good care of me” Kelly said.
“You are living with your parents? Yet you have scars and wounds…I actually thought you were being maltreated cause this is just too much” Laura said.
“The scars are from my childhood days,i was always playing rough with my friends then and the wound..I..i hit my chest on the bedside table..I was planning on going to the hospital after school to treat it” he said.
“How come you hit your chest on your bed side table?” I asked.
“It was unknowingly” he said and we all sighed knowing he doesn’t wanna tell the truth.
“Those scars on your chest are not from childhood days,it’s obvious they are recent cause they are still fresh” Bryan said and i nodded in agreement.
“And it’s not possible to hit your chest on your bedside table and have such a deep wound”Laura said and i nodded again in agreement.
“Kelly..just open up to us,we will help you if we can” I said.
“Believe me! The scars are from my childhood days and the wound is from my bedside table” He said and turned his gaze to the drip connected to his hand.
The drip is almost finished…
“Kelly we can’t believe you cause we know you aren’t telling the truth.. please how did you get these scars and wounds…who punished you this way?” Bryan asked starting to get pissed.
“Believe me or not…I’m sorry but I’m ready to say anything” he said.
“But Kelly..” I was saying before the nurse walked in.
“Ohh…he’s awake,why didn’t one of you come to call me?” She asked and started disconnecting the finished drip from his hand.
“How are you feeling now?” She asked Kelly.
“Much better” he said.
“Next time, don’t ever try to cover up a wound cause it causes a lot of damage to the body” The nurse said.
Kelly nodded “Thanks ma’am”
“So,now you are free to go home…come collect your medications at the desk and you have to come back tomorrow so you can have a change of the band aid” She said.
“Okay ma’am” he said.
“Alright, don’t forget to come to collect your medications before leaving okay?” She said.
She packed the waste and thrashed it before walking out of the ward.
“Let’s go home” Kelly said and stood on his feet.
He started buttoning his shirt,then wore his shoes.
“Kelly, avoiding our questions won’t help anything” Bryan said what’s exactly on my mind.
“I’m not avoiding anything…I’ve answered all your questions..let’s just leave,i need to go rest at home” He said and picked his backpack…
He hung it round his shoulders and walked out of the ward, ahead of us.
Why isn’t he opening up?
Is what he’s facing that bad!
I just hope nothing hurts him again.
We got to the parking lot after following Kelly to get his medications.
I also went to pick up my skirt…
I had washed it and also dried it.
The school is deserted…there were little or no students in the school, making everywhere dead silent.
Our voices echoed as we talk..
Even the cars in the parking lot are not more than five.
Rollins is standing beside Bryan’s car and i also saw Kelly’s driver standing beside Kelly’s white Lamborghini.
I guess Laura’s car should be among the remaining three cars in the lot.
I guessed right cause she waved to a man whom i guessed to be her driver..
He’s standing beside a red Lexus..
Wow! Laura is living big.
“Thanks for today Laura,i will return your skirt tomorrow” I said.
“No problem Tamara” she said nicely.
Is she forming to be nice?…well…who knows
We all exchanged goodbyes…
I got into Bryan’s car, Kelly got into his and Laura into hers.
The drivers drove off and i can’t wait to be home.
I need to go change this soaking….
I entered the living room and met mum and dad quarrelling….they didn’t acknowledged my presence like always.
I stood and watched them quarrel until they were about throwing things at each other.
“Will you fucking stop!” I thundered making them stop dead in their tracks.
This is actually the first time I’m doing this..
I had never yell at my parents to stop fighting…instead i will be crying and trying to separate them which ended up giving me the scars on my chest.
“Why the hell do you have to fight always!
Why the hell do you have to throw things,hurt yourselves and hurt me also.
Dad,do you derive pleasure in hitting mum!
What you’re doing is against the law!
Why did you both get married at the first place!
Why did you give birth to me!
What you both are doing is unfair!
I can’t even invite my friends home!” I yelled in tears, having shallow breathings.
They both stood dumbfounded as they watch me.
I un-bottened my shirt and revealed the scars and wound they gave me.
They gasp and rushed to me.
“Don’t freaking touch me!” I yelled making them shift back.
“I was unconscious for more than an hour at school today,i wasn’t able to tell my friends how i got the scars and wound…I had to lie!” I said softly and rested my arm on the novel shelf, i was starting to get weak.
“I’m so sorry Kel,your mother caused it” Dad said.
“No,your father caused it”
“Your mother did!”
“Your father did!”
“You freaking did!”
“I freaking didn’t…you are the devil!”
“You are the devil’s advocate!”
I shook my hand and picked up my backpack,i hung my shirt on my shoulder and made my way to my room.
I noticed they are starting to follow me .
“Don’t! I repeat..none of you should follow me!” I yelled.
“What happened to your back?” Mum asked.
“Why do you care to know! You both doesn’t care about me so just let me be!” I snapped and started climbing the stairs to my room.
“Have you seen what you caused?…Kelly now yells at you!”
“He yelled at you too!”
“No! He yelled at you”
“You are crazy”
“You are mentally derailed!”
“To hell with you!”
I shut the door of my room close behind me.
I dropped my backpack and sat on the bed.
My back is aching seriously…I need someone who will just apply soothing balm on it for me.
I’m gonna go meet my driver once I’m done freshening up.
And; my heart is aching…
I don’t know if it’s from the wound on my chest or..o..r..Mara.
I don’t know how I’m feeling for her…
Well…it’s just normal feelings as friends.
I hope so.
|Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 6:46pm On Nov 05, 2019|
“Thanks for the ride Bryan and also thanks for today” I said as i alighted from Bryan’s car.
“It’s nothing Mara…bye” he said.
“Bye” I said and waved till Rollins drove away.
I knocked on the gate and James unlocked it.
Solely written by Azeemah Salami
I walked in and greeted him…
“Is mum and Liam in?” I asked.
“Yeah,they are just coming back from the company” he said.
“Who drove?” I asked.
“Your mum did” he said and i smiled knowingly..
I wonder why Liam hates driving…he drives before.
I walked inside the house and shut the door behind me.
I met only Liam in the living room..
“Hi Liam” I said tiredly and dropped on the couch beside him.
“Don’t act tired,you are still gonna prepare the pasta and chicken you promised me” He said.
“I’m not acting tired Liam…I’m really tired and in pain” I said.
“In pain? What happened?” He asked worriedly dropping his phone.
“I got flogged by Mr Curt today and the pain I’m feeling on my back is terrible” I said.
“Really? Let me see” he said and stood up.
I un-bottened my shirt and showed him my bare back.
“What!” He exclaimed.
“Yeah” I said.
“Tam…there are several signs of strokes on your back…is Mr Curt going crazy or what!” Liam yelled.
“What’s going on?” I heard Mum asked coming down from the stairs.
“Hi mum” I said.
“Welcome Mara…how was school?” She asked.
“Mum you need to see Tam’s back!” Liam yelled.
“What happened to her ba…What!” Mum exclaimed on sighting my back.
“Gosh! What happened?” She asked.
I started narrating everything right from where i was in pain in the garden.
I finished narrating, leaving out Ellen’s part,Liam was already pacing in anger.
“You mean that bald headed Mr Curt flogged you because of that?” He asked and i nodded, trying to hold my laughter.
Liam is so abusive.
“He’s gonna go completely crazy after I’m done with him…Mum I’m going to Tam’s school right now … That bald headed needs to be sacked” Liam said and rushed up to his room.
He’s going to grab a Jacket and cap.
I’m not allowing him leave!
“Mum, please don’t allow Liam leave,he’s going to beat up Mr Curt” I said and stood up from the couch.
“But what Mr Curt did is totally wrong…Liam needs to pull off two of his teeth” Mum said…I know she’s also pissed cause she doesn’t allow Liam to go fight.
“Mum… please I’m okay,just stop him.. please” I pleaded.
“I’m not stopping him! That your bald headed teacher needs to go more bald” Mum said angrily.
I sighted Liam rushing down the stairs and quickly went to stand by the door.
He has put on a black jacket with a black cap, black shorts and black trainers.
If i allow Liam out in that all- black outfit,then Mr Curt should be considered incapacitated.
Liam wears black completely whenever he’s seriously angered and that spells doom.
Liam’s anger can’t be underrated..
“Tam move away from the door” he said in a calm angry voice.
“Please Liam, don’t go fight him..i will report him myself once i get to school tomorrow” I said, regretting why i showed him my back at the first place.
“Move away Tam…I will make Mr Curt regret why he did your back like that” he said.
“I was the one who jumped on Bryan’s back” I said.
“And so?..does that give the reason for you to be flogged like an animal?,he flogged you like an animal and I’m also gonna treat him like an animal” He said.
“Please Liam…I beg of you, don’t go.. please” I said starting to tear up.
“Mara move away from the door…I don’t want to hurt you” He warned.
“Mum please, tell Liam not to go” I said but she just stood and stared at us.
Liam started dragging the door knob with me..
I started crying and held on tightly to the door knob.
“Liam please” I cried.
I know he’s gonna succeed at dragging the door knob from me.
“Mum please talk to him” I cried but mum sat down without saying anything.
“Liam please…I beg of you” I cried louder holding onto my stomach in pain.
He stopped dragging the door knob with me and watched me as i cried.
My tears weakens and softens his heart.
Liam hates to see me cry.
He pulled me closer to him and hugged me tightly..
I hugged him back and continued crying on his shoulder.
“I won’t go again…I promise” he said and kissed my hair.
I sniffled,then smiled..
“But the next time Mr Curt tries this..I’m gonna make sure he uses his ear as a pendant” Liam threatened as he pulled up my shirt to check my back again.
“I don’t like this” he said bitterly..
I nodded…”it will soon clear off”
“Sorry huh? Is the pain stinging?” He asked.
“No it’s not” I lied.
“You don’t have to lie” he said and led me to a couch.
Damn! He knows so much about me.
I sat down and he sat beside me.
“Sorry” Mum said to me.
“Should i help you apply balm to it?” Liam asked.
“No… she’s gonna freshen up first,then take pain reliever,you will help her apply balm after that..Mara come with me” Mum said and i stood up.
“Liam you can see how tired Mara is…so go into the kitchen and make lunch okay?” Mum said.
“Of course i will…just For Tam” He said and i smiled.
Mum helped me with my backpack and we both started walking to the stairs..
“Sorry Tam…I love you” Liam said after us.
I smiled….”I love you too”
I walked out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel.
Mum was sitting on my bed,she has helped me pick out an outfit.
I’m already putting on my undies,so all i need now is to get into that white tank top and black skirt.
I pulled off my towel and mum passed me the black skirt..
I pulled it on,then the white tank top followed.
I removed the shower cap from my hair and made to brush it.
“Mara… didn’t you calculate your menstrual cycle,you were always marking it on your table calendar so what went wrong this time?” Mum asked.
“Mum…I’ve been occupied lately” I said.
“But you’ve always being occupied other times too and you were always marking your date in the calendar… you know your cramps are terrible” She said and i nodded.
“I will try to always mark it mum..I totally forgot” I said.
“Yeah it happens,are you feeling alright now?”
“Yes mum” I smiled and started brushing my hair.
“Once you are done eating…you take the pain reliever okay?”
“Yes sweet mum” I said making her smile.
“Wow…my mum is the most beautiful woman on earth once she smiles” I said making her smile wider.
“Mum help me pack my hair” I said and picked a black hair band.
“Make the hair band two” she said.
“Really?” I asked.
“Okay” I picked another hair band.
I sat on the dressing chair facing the mirror..
Mum took it and started packing my hair…
It felt so good…I closed my eyes enjoying the feeling of mum’s hand on my hair.
“I’m done” she said few minutes later.
I opened my eyes and i was wowed.
My hair was packed in two high ponytails,then it was plaited at the tip..it dropped to my shoulders looking so simple and beautiful..
I love it!
“Thanks Mum…I love it” I said and stood up bouncing in front of the mirror..I smiled as my ponytails bounced with me.
“You still behave childish” Mum said.
“No i don’t…i just love the hair,this is what I’m gonna be packing to school” I said.
“It’s an old style..my mum always make it for me anytime I’m going out.. people loved it then and almost all the ladies started packing two ponytails but now it has fade off…new styles are trending” She said.
“Wow! I love it more cause i love old things..it makes me imagine myself in the 1970s… I’m making it to school tomorrow” I said.
“Okay, once you are done come to my room for the soothing balm” Mum said.
“I’m done let me follow you” I said and picked my phone.
I slipped into my slippers and we both walked out of my room.
I was descending the stairs after Mum gave me the soothing balm.
I thought Liam is preparing lunch,why am i not perceiving any aroma.
I walked inside the kitchen and met no one.
There was not also sign of cooking or anything..
I walked back to the living room and met it empty also..
Where the hell is Liam!
“Liam” I called loudly..but there was no response.
“Liam” I called again…same thing!
Oh my God…i hope he hasn’t gone to meet Mr Curt.
“Liam” I called, starting to get afraid that my thoughts are true..
“Boom ” I heard and landed on the couch in fear.
I heard a familiar laughter which is Liam’s.
He stood in front of me..
“Liam I’ve told you to stop scaring me!” I yelled.
“Why do you also have to get scared at little things…I just said ‘Boom’ and you already landed on the couch” he smirked.
“Whatever” I said,a little bit glad he didn’t go to meet Mr Curt.
He sat down beside me…and took the soothing balm from me.
“Lay flat on my legs,let me apply it for you” he said.
“I got to the kitchen now and i couldn’t find the lunch you were asked to prepare…have you dished it out on the dining table?” I asked.
“Why are you smiling?” I asked.
“Mhmm..I’ve not made lunch” He said.
“What! And you are smiling..what the hell were you doing?” I asked.
“Nothing,i just didn’t feel like making lunch…you know how much i hate cooking” He said.
“But you said you will make it fir me” I said.
“I’m sorry, should i order pizza for you?”
“I don’t want pizza!” I said pissed off.
“I don’t want!”
“I don’t want!”
“But i said I’m sorry”
“Leave me alone!”
“What’s going on Litam?” Mum asked walking into living room…
“Mum can you believe Liam has not made lunch” I said.
“What! I actually came downstairs for lunch… Liam what were you doing?” Mum asked advancing towards Liam.
He stood up and shifted back, giving that annoying smile.
“You are smiling” Mum said and made to hit him.
He ran round the living room with Mum running after him…
I laughed as they ran round the table.
Liam was about escaping when i blocked his way.
Mum caught up with him and we both began hitting him, laughing hysterically…

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
(Zeemah writes )
I walked out of the bathroom wrapped in my towel.
I opened the wardrobe and picked my school uniform one by one before closing it back.
I opened the drawer and selected a red bra…i closed it and walked towards the bed.
I dropped everything on the bed and started drying my body with the towel.
I picked my body lotion and started applying it.
I wore my red bra and adjusted the strap.. before wearing my school shirt over it.
I wore my popsock then my short flay skirt.
I tucked the shirt into the skirt and adjusted the popsock.
I removed the shower cap on my head and my hair came flowing down.
I rubbed the hair lotion in my palms then smoothened it on my hair.
I took the hair brush and started brushing my hair.
I was about packing it in a ponytail when i remembered the style mum did for me yesterday.
I smiled and picked two hair bands.
I’m gonna meet mum to pack it for me.
I quickly wore the blue shoes Liam selected for me.
I picked the paper bag containing Laura’s skirt…I washed it yesterday, ironed and folded it neatly in the paper bag.
I carried my backpack, looked at my reflection in the mirror before walking out of my room.
I descended the stairs and let my hand trail on the rails.
My grin widened when i perceived omlette.
I quickened my step towards the kitchen.. dropped my backpack and the paper bag on one of the dining chairs before entering the kitchen.
I met Mum adding cheese to the omelette,she was backing me..
“Mara” She called and i smiled…
“I can’t even surprise you,you always know when I’m around you” I said.
“Of course,I will always feel your presence …” She said still backing me.
“Wow! Good morning Mum” I said and hugged her from behind.
She turned and pecked my cheeks.
“Good morning Mara…how was your night?” She asked.
“Fine Mum” I said.
“Your breakfast is almost ready,i just need to make coffee” She said and i nodded.
“Thanks Mum” I said.
I watched as she topped the omelette with chives and cheese..
She placed it on a tray and turned on the coffee maker, it started brewing.
“Mum you are gonna help me pack that style,the one you did for me yesterday” I said.
“Ohh…it’s called pontsplait” She said.
“Pontsplait?” I asked.
“Yeah… actually we gave it that name cause it doesn’t have any specific name,the ponts stands for ponytails” She said.
“Wow!..so that means ponytails plait” I said and mum nodded.
“I will help you with that once you are done with your breakfast. Your coffee is ready” She said and placed a coffee cup under the coffeemaker,she pressed a button and hot coffee poured out, into the coffee cup.
“Do you want it doused with cream?” She asked
“No…I don’t like taking creamy coffee with omelette…I prefer it black” I said.
She placed the coffee cup on a saucer then,placed it on the tray containing the omelette.
“Your breakfast is ready” she said.
I smiled…”Thanks mum”
I picked the tray and walked tp the dining room.
I sat down and started eating my breakfast.
The omelette really tasted nice… of course mum is a good cook and that was one of the reasons she didn’t want a maid..
I gulped the whole coffee after eating the whole of my omelette.
I stood up and carried the empty plate and coffee cup to the kitchen.
Mum was making another omelette which i think is for Liam.
“Mum I’m done” I said.
“Okay” she said.
“My hair” I said and brought out the two hair bands .
“I’m coming,we can’t do that here in the kitchen…just wait a little bit..the omelette is almost done” She said.
I shrugged and walked back to the dining room.
I picked my phone from my backpack,sat down and started playing games while waiting for Mum.
“I’m done” She said walking out of the kitchen.
I dropped my phone…I was starting to get bored with the game.
She picked the two hair bands and started helping me to make the so called pontsplait style.
She’s done. I looked at my phone’s screen and smiled when i saw my reflection.
It’s looking more beautiful than yesterday’s.
“Thanks mum…I love it” I said.
“You can even make it yourself” She said.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yeah…you just have to divide your hair into two parts, pack the two parts with the hairbands..after that you plait the tip,curl it with your hand and make it drop.. that’s all” She said.
“Wow…I didn’t know that was the magic,i will try packing it myself tomorrow” I said.
“Good morning” We heard Bryan’s voice said from the living room.
I started grinning…Mum caught me and gave me a wierd look.
I know she’s gonna ask me about that later.
“Morning Bryan…we are over here” Mum said and i heard his light footsteps coming closer to the dining room.
I adjusted my pontsplait and stood up.
He had entered the dining room.
“Good morning Mum” he greeted.
“Morning Bryan,how was your night?”
“Fine Mum” he said.
I wore my backpack and carried the paper bag.
“Do you care for omelette and coffee?” Mum asked.
“Thanks Mum but im filled already,i had a large breakfast” he said.
“Alright dear,i have to return to the kitchen” she said.
Mum walked back into the kitchen.
“Hi” He said dragging my cheeks.
“This hair looks very good on you” he said holding the pontsplait in his hand.
I blushed “Thanks Bryan,mum actually made it for me”
“Really? It’s so beautiful. I like it” he said.
“Thanks” I said.
“So,can we leave now?” He asked.
“Of course..who dares goes late to Makers high school” I said and we both chuckled.
“How’s your back…I hope it hurts less?” He asked and i nodded.
“Yeah…I took pain reliever and Liam helped me apply soothing balm on it…has yours also lessen?” I asked.
“Yeah…i asked Kim to help me apply soothing oil,i couldn’t tell Mum and dad cause they will be so pissed” He said.
“I actually told Mum and Liam and i regretted doing so cause Liam was bent on going to fight Mr Curt until i stopped him with tears” I said.
He laughed…”You should have allowed him go,Mr Curt also need punishment.
“Yeah but Liam’s punishment will be over the extreme..you know how Liam is” I said and he nodded.
“Yeah…but i wish you had let him go. I would love to see Mr Curt trembling on his seat” Bryan said and we both laughed.
“Damn! We are running late” I said.
“Goodbye Mum” We chorused..
“Bye darlings” Mum responded from the kitchen.
“Let’s go Miss pontsplait” Bryan said and ran to the door before i could hit him.
I laughed and ran after him.
We entered the classroom, laughing…I kept hitting Bryan as he kept repeating ‘Miss pontsplait’
I suddenly heard ‘Wow(s)’ …
I stopped hitting Bryan and i noticed the ‘wow(s)’ I heard was directed to me.
“You hair looks beautiful
What’s the name of the style?
I will love to make it.
I love it.
It looks simple.
Please teach us how you made it…” The females in the class chorused to my surprise.
Is pontsplait this great?
Or they just love anything on me..I remembered how they all asked me about my shoes and now most of them are putting on the same shoes as mine.
I smiled, feeling so happy… Bryan stood beside me and kept whispering Miss pontsplait in my ears…I held myself from hitting his forehead,the females kept complimenting my hair and throwing questions.
I grinned and cleared my throat…they all keep quiet to hear what i was about to say.
“Hi class..the name of this style is pontsplait,the ponts stands for ponytails” I said.
“Wow!” They exclaimed just like i did when Mum told me.
“It’s an old style and my mum made it for me,I’m gonna teach you all how to make it” I said.
“Yaaaaay” they chorused happily..
I smiled….”you just have to divide your hair into two parts,then you pack the two parts with your hairbands..after that,you plait the tip,you curl it with your hand and make it drop.. that’s all” I said exactly as Mum told me.
“Wow! Thanks” They chorused and i was surprised when to see them loosening their already packed hair.
They started packing pontsplait style and within the blinking of an eye most of the females in the class has pontsplait style on their head.
I’m more surprised they got it perfectly.
“Wow!” I exclaimed…
It looked so beautiful on everyone..
I saw Laura battling with hers…I walked to her, collected her hair bands and helped her pack it.
She smiled “Thanks Mara and good morning”
“Good morning… thanks for yesterday and here is your skirt” I said and placed the paper bag on her desk.
“Okay Mara” She smiled admiring her pontsplait style…
“Thanks Mara” the females chorused loudly making my smile widen.
“You are welcome everyone” I said and noticed all the females hair is in pontsplait.. everyone looks good with the style,they all admired it and thanked me over and over again.
Ellen and Jessie are the only ones who looked different in their ponytail, Ellen is placing her head on the desk.
Is she feeling sorry about what she did?…I hope so.
Jessie is busy with her phone…
“Let’s go to our seats Miss pontsplait” Bryan said to me.
I hit him hard on his shoulder and he let out an “ouch” I stuck out my tongue and smirked..
I stopped when i noticed everyone was staring at us.
“Awwwn” They chorused…
I blushed and briskly walked to my seat.
“Hi Kelly” Bryan and i said.
“Hi” he replied not as cheerful as usual.
“Are you feeling well now?” I asked.
He nodded and turned his gaze back to the novel he was reading.
“I hope you are feeling better now?” Bryan asked… He nodded without removing his gaze from the novel.
“What’s the title of the novel?…is it one of Zeemah’s novel ?” I asked.
“Family Album by Danielle steel” He said slowly.
“Kelly what’s wrong?” I asked.
“Why did you ask?” He asked.
“You are not as cheerful as you used to be,is your chest paining you? Should i go with you to the infirmary?” I asked.
He suddenly smiled and I’m glad he did.
“I’m fine Tammy… thanks for your care” He said.
“It’s nothing buddy” I said patted his back like Bryan always do,but i didn’t get it…I ended up slapping his back.
We both bursted into laughter….
“Hi class…I’m directing this to the females” A girl whom i recognised as Ammy said loudly standing in front of the class.
Everyone paid attention to what she’s about to say.
“No one should teach or tell other classes how pontsplait is made cause this is the hairstyle that’s gonna distinguish grade 8 females from other classes” she said and everyone nodded in agreement.
“Yeah,we agree” The females chorused.
“Grade 8 females have something to distinguish them from other classes,what of we males?” A guy asked and the other guys nodded in support..
Laura cleared her throat…”you all need something distinguishable right?” She asked.
“Yeah” they chorused.
“Okay no problem…why don’t you all go bald like Mr Curt” She said throwing everyone into laughter..
I didn’t know she was this funny…I laughed so hard.
The laughter died down when Mrs Siobhan,our History teacher walked into the class…
We all love her cause she’s one of the most jovial teacher,she tells us interesting stories and jokes,she also teach us some useful things outside history subject.
Ammy returned to her seat.
“Good morning Mrs Siobhan” We chorused.
“Good morning class,how are you all?”
“Wow…all the females in this class are looking more beautiful this morning…what’s this hairstyle called?” Mrs Siobhan asked.
“Pontsplait” We females chorused happily.
“Pontsplait?” She asked.
“Yes…Ponts stands for ponytails” we chorused.
“Wow! This is so nice..it made every female’s face bright and beautiful” She said making us smile.
“So,did you guys planned to pack the same style cause everyone female in here is on pontsplait” She said.
Yeah… everyone except Jessie and Ellen who still has her head placed on the desk.
Ellen does that whenever she’s sorry about her action.
“She packed the style to school this morning and taught us all” They said and pointed to me..
I felt honoured and happy…
“Wow… Tamara,you are such a nice girl to have taught them the style” Mrs Siobhan said.
“Yeah she is” the class chorused.
“You can all call her Miss pontsplait” Bryan said loudly.
“Miss pontsplait” Everyone chorused and we all laughed…
Bryan, Kelly,Laura and i sat round a table in the cafeteria.
It was actually Bryan who told Laura to join us.
We discussed and laughed as we ate our lunch.
Various female students from different classes have come to ask us how we made the pontsplait and we kept explaining that it’s just for the females in our class…they all left disappointed.
Grade 8 females stood out in the cafeteria,other students admired us, making us raise our shoulders high.
It felt so good…I’m gonna tell mum how her hairstyle made everyone happy.
I saw Ellen sitting at another table,she not looking happy and i felt a bit bad for her.
She should come…there is still an empty chair left…it’s five chairs per table.
“Hi.. please how did you make this style..it looks so beautiful “Another set of female students stopped at our table.
“This style is only meant for grade 8 females!” Laura half yelled making them scurry away.
“You all look special with this style”Kelly said.
“Yeah they do” Bryan said.
“But it will be more special if you guys can also make your head bald” Laura teased.
Kelly and Bryan shot her a glare and we both laughed.
I dipped my fries into my mouth and chewed it happily..
My mouth movement suddenly stopped when i saw Ellen standing beside our table holding her tray of lunch with a very sorry look.
“Ca..can i sit?” She asked.
Bryan hissed and made to stand up but i held his hand and pleaded for him to sit back.
He did but not without hesitating..
“Yes you can sit Ellen” I said.
She sat and placed her tray on the table.
“I’m sorry Bryan and Kelly…I didn’t know the punishment will be that severe. Please forgive me..I’m sorry” She pleaded.
No one talked…
“We’ve forgiven you Ellen” I said.
“I’m not asking you for forgiveness…it’s Bryan and Kelly I’m asking for forgiveness…you are not my friend so why should i care if you forgive me or not” She said surprising them.
I smiled…I’m not surprised..
“And who says i need your pleas … Of course i don’t,i was only trying to be nice and moreso,you didn’t offend me..it was Bryan you offended” I said.
|Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 6:47pm On Nov 05, 2019|
She shot me a glare and i did the same.
“Seriously… Ellen,you expect me to forgive you?” Bryan asked.
“I’m sorry Bryan and Kelly” she said.
“How could you say you don’t need Mara’s forgiveness..if you don’t need her forgiveness,the
n you don’t also need mine” Kelly said.
“So Laura is invisible right?…you didn’t even act like you saw her…she helped us while you were being a bitch yesterday and all you could do is ignore her…if you don’t ask for her forgiveness,then I’m not also forgiving you” Bryan said.
“But i only reported you to Mr Curt,they were the ones who jumped on your back like Ronda Rousey..I don’t need their forgiveness!” She said to the surprise of everyone.
Why did i allow her sit!
“I can’t believe you can still run your mouth after everything you did! If you think you don’t need their forgiveness,then you don’t need our forgiveness also…guys let’s get outta here” Bryan said already standing up.
“Okay okay… please everyone.. forgive me” She said.
“You have to apologise to us one after the other” Bryan said.
“So Bryan…you mean you are gonna forgive her?” Kelly asked.
Bryan ran his hand through his hair..
“Yeah…I will,she’s my girlfriend” He said making a part of my heart shrink.
I felt like crying..
“Okay…you can forgive her but I’ll not!” Kelly said and stood up from the chair, about walking away but i grabbed him back..
“Please Kelly…let’s forgive her” I said.
“Why should we forgive her over such cruel act and she kept saying she does not need you guys forgiveness…even after all she did!” Kelly said.
“Please Kelly…let’s just forgive her,she’s our friend” I said.
“Didn’t you heard when she said you are not her friend anymore…why do you keep acting nice to her when she keeps being cruel to you” Kelly said.
“She’s not being cruel to me Kelly,just let it go..let’s forgive her” I said and looked at Bryan…
He sighed and sat down.
“Im sorry Laura.. please forgive me” Ellen said.
“It’s okay…I’ve forgiven you,you didn’t offend me” Laura said..
I noticed Laura didn’t talk during the little clash and i so much loved how she maintained her lane.
“I’m sorry Mara, please forgive me” She said.
“It’s fine Ellen..I’ve forgiven you” I said and held her hand.
I sighed when she secretly shrugged my hand away.
“I’m so sorry Kelly… please forgive me,it wasn’t intentional” She said.
“I’ve forgiven you Ellen…but just don’t try to behave that next time” he said.
“I won’t… thanks Kelly” She said with a smile.
She turned to Bryan…
“My love” She called..I felt like walking away from this table but what excuse do i give..
She held his hand on the table and my heart keeps breaking anytime i look at their intertwined hands on the table..
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“I’m sorry babe…i didn’t mean to do that,if i knew the punishment would be extreme.. Trust me,i wouldn’t have gone to Mr Curt.. forgive me babe,this is the last time i will try that” She said and tightened her hold on Bryan’s hand.
“I’ve forgiven you babe, but you really hurt me” Bryan said.
“I’m sorry babe.. please” Ellen said.
“It’s okay I’ve forgiven you” He said and smiled.
She smiled back,stood up and kissed him on the lips..
He returned the kiss and my heart finally shattered..
I was starting to tear up…
The cafeteria light went off and i kept hearing the sound of their kiss, i began sobbing quietly in the darkness..
I stood up from the chair and picked my phone from the table.
I felt Kelly grab my hand in the darkness and we both walked out of the cafeteria..
I quickly use my other hand to wipe my tears…I wouldn’t want anyone to know I’m crying.
“Bryan…I won’t be going with you” I said as we all got to the parking lot after going to the infirmary with Kelly.
“Why?” He asked.
“Kelly and i planned to go get our practical materials” I said.
“Ohh…okay,Laura offered to bring ours,you know her mum is a seamstress” He said.
“Yeah i know…bye” I said and began walking towards Kelly’s car even though Kelly is still with Bryan.
“Mara” Bryan called.
I stopped and he walked up to me.
“What’s wrong?” He asked.
“Nothing” I said.
“Are you sure?” He asked.
“What made you think I’m not sure?” I asked.
“You look sullen and unhappy” he said and i shrugged.
I was surprised when he pulled me into a hug.
My unhappiness flew far away..my face brightened up in a smile and i felt so happy.
“Whatever the problem is…just let it go and be happy huh?” He said and kissed my hair.
I smiled and nodded…
I saw Kelly walking towards us, Ellen fuming beside Bryan’s car and Laura getting into her red Lexus.
Bryan disengaged from the hug..
“Miss pontsplait…take care and make sure you purchase the best practical materials” He said like a professor.
He waved as Kelly and i got into the car..
I waved back happily..
He made me sad moments ago and here he is making me happy again.
“Haa” I said tiredly and alighted from Kelly’s car.
We’ve gone to get the practical materials and it was a bit stressful.
I’m taking the practical materials cause it’s gonna be done in my house.
“Bye Kelly…make sure you come early tomorrow” I said.
“Okay..Bye Mara” He said and smiled.
His driver drove away and i turned to knock on the gate.
“Miss pontsplait” I heard from a distance..I smiled and turned already knowing who it is.
I saw Bryan walking towards me.
He’s already changed into blue jeans and white plaid shirt,he looks stunning from afar as the sun reflected on his hair making it glitter.
His smiles made my heart beat accelerate and i watched him get closer with a stiff breath.
He got to me and drag my cheeks first.
I regained myself…”Bryan” I said.
“Miss pontsplait,you are surprised to see me here…i noticed you weren’t happy so i came here to make you happy” He said and tucked his hands into the pocket of his jeans.
I smiled….”thanks Mr pontsplait” I said and we both laughed.
“Let’s go in” He said and helped me with the practical materials..
He took my hand and my heart leaped.
I love Bryan and i will forever do, nothing can ever stop my feelings for him cause what i have for him is not just love…it’s far more than that..
Bryan please love me back ..

JUST FOR LOVE
(love made her)

(Zeemah writes )
Our worlds begin to cross path.
Those absurd moments
When you couldn’t speak,
When you feel down.
I lit up the freckles on your face.
Your smiles alone made my heart dissolve” I sang as i walked out of the bathroom..
I laughed…if Mara was here,she would have tell me how my voice sounds terrible..
I miss her even though i was at her place yesterday,we cooked,ate,sang and danced…
What i great friend i have..
Today is our schedule for the practical…Laura will be here soon..gotta dress up!
I opened my wardrobe and saw a blue t-shirt staring at me.
“I’m not gonna pick you,you can stare all you want” I mumbled and shifted it aside.
I selected a black sweatshirt with a pair of white pants.
I dropped the wet towel on the bed,put on my boxers, pants and sweatshirt.
I continued singing as i brushed my hair.
I don’t like applying body lotion,i already have a glowing skin
I picked the wet towel and packed it together with the clothes that needs to be laundered.
I slipped into my red covered slippers and walked out of my room heading to the laundry..
I wash my dirty clothes myself… Mum told Kim not to help me with my clothes anymore and that’s totally crazy..
I’m not very pissed cause i make use of the machine…
I opened the door to the laundry room and dropped the clothes on the empty wooden table.
I walked closer to the machine and connected it to electricity….
Few minutes later,i was watching my clothes spin.
The door to the laundry room opened and Kim walked in.
“Bryan… your classmate is asking of you” she said.
“She’s my friend… okay, help me continue with the washing please..I have to go meet her,we have a practical” I said.
“Okay no problem” She said.
“Thanks Kim” I smiled and walked out.
I got to the living room and met Laura sitting with her eyes plastered on the television…
It’s showing a kdrama..
“Don’t tell me you are also a fan of kdrama?” I asked and she turned towards me with smile.
She’s quite beautiful..
“Hi Bryan,yes i am..I love kdrama a lot” she said.
“Tch!” I rolled my eyes..”Well… Mara and i are fans of US drama” I said and sat on the couch opposite her.
Just then i noticed there’s a large backpack beside her.
Oh…our practical materials..
She kept to her promise.
“I love US drama also but i love kdrama more” she said.
“Your choice…so what do you care for?” I asked.
“Huh…I’m okay for now” she said.
“Are you sure?”
“Should we start the practical now or you want to relax a bit?” I asked.
“Let’s start now,we have so much to do” She said and began opening her backpack.
I smiled…I like people like this,she’s serious on what she came here for..I remembered my practical in grade 7,i was paired with a girl also,the girl came to my house and kept loitering, entering rooms, jumping from one couch to another,i sent her home and we ended up failing the practical..
But this beauty before me is nothing like that,she’s so calm and cautious.
I noticed she’s putting on a pink knee length gown with white boots.
Her hair is still in their so called pontsplait style
Her face is bare of make up and some strand of gold hair laid on her forehead.
Wow! She has a good dress sense,i love people who care about what they wore cause I’m a fashion icon myself
Haa! Her boobs looks bigger in house wear.
That uniform sure covers a lot..
I’m just noticing how beautiful Laura is.
I was lost staring at her and didn’t know she was already placing some materials on the table.
“Bryan” she called.
“Huh?” I jolted in embarrassment..
She smiled…”you were lost,are you scared our practical is gonna ruin?”
“No” I said,still a bit embarrassed.
“I’m gonna teach you, remember i told you my mum is a seamstress,she has taught me everything so don’t bother huh?” She said nicely.
I smiled…What a girl!
“Okay… fine so we are gonna start now” I said.
“Yeah…are your parents around,i need to say hi” she said.
“No,they went to a friend’s party,they will be back soon” I said.
“Oh.. okay please can i get a foot wear,this boot is gonna make things slow” She said.
“Of course…give me a minute” I said and stood up.
I quickly walked up to my room, searched the shoe rack and grabbed a purple footwear..
I was about heading out when i heard my phone ring.
I turned back and picked it up from the bedside table..
Hey babe” I said.
Bryan! I hope you aren’t doing anything naughty with that girl !” She screamed so loud that i had to hold the phone far away from my ear.
What sort of person is this!
Ellen… listen,she’s strictly here for practical and not for anything else okay?”
If i found out that something later happened,i swear down i won’t take it lightly with you.
Whatever!…I’m about clicking up”
I’m the one to do the clicking up not you! I just don’t want any silly stuff popping up..if not…” She said and clicked up.
I sighed and dropped my phone into my pocket..
I headed out of the room and down the stairs to the living room room.
I met Laura watching the kdrama,she has pulled off her boot and it’s placed neatly beside the couch.
I looked at all the things on the table..
The cloth material is a beautiful floral material,there are needles, different colors of threads,scissors,paper sheets,pen and other things i can’t name..
“Here” I said and dropped the purple footwear beside her leg.
“Thanks” she smiled and slipped her feet into in.
She gat beautiful tiny feet…
“Wow…I love the feeling it’s giving my feet” She said and dipped her finger into the wide fur on the footwear.
I smiled and headed back to where i was sitting.
“So…” She started and an hour later,i was sewing the pillow case perfectly while she see the bed spread..
She taught me for 30 minutes before i could do it perfectly and now I’m enjoying it.
She’s so nice and we kept on laughing and chatting as we sew.
I selected a blue mini skirt with a white cotton top.
I threw it on the bed and started drying my body with my towel.
I applied body lotion,then my undies came second,my skirt and my top.
I removed the shower cap, making my hair tumble down back.
I picked an hair comb and started combing it.
I picked two hair bands and divided my hair into two parts,I packed the two parts each with the hair band,then i plait the tip,curl it with my hand and make it drop.
My pontsplait is ready!
And it’s looking wow…I got it perfectly.
I smiled and dropped the hair comb back in it’s place.
I picked my towel and shower cap and headed back to the bathroom,I spread my wet towel on the towel rail and threw my shower cap in the closet.
I walked back to my room,danced in front of the mirror with no music.
I laughed at my madness and picked my phone.
I unlocked it and scrolled through the apps.
I clicked on boomplay and list of music filed in.
I searched for my favorite music…’Till i met you’ I clicked on it and it began playing.
I placed it on the dressing table and started dancing, chuckling at my stupid dance steps..
I don’t know the reason I’m excited,is it because Bryan spent some time with me yesterday.
I laughed when i remembered when Bryan sang,mum and Liam closed the door to their rooms.
Haa,it seems I’m the only one that enjoys that terrible voice… not only his voice,i enjoy everything about him, either good or bad.
I just hope he notices me soon..I can’t seem to love another person.
Who do i even want to love except Bryan…is it those crazy guys in the class that has started making advances towards me or who?
I’m gonna tell Bryan i love him soon,I don’t care if he’s dating anyone or not.
I’m tired of hiding!
I can’t go through hell for nothing!
I love Bryan and no one else…he’s the only one with the key to my heart and I’m gonna date him.
He’s the one that’s gonna get my first kiss!
He’s the only one i love! Why can’t he love me back or;
Is he probably shy to confess to me?…
I’m gonna confess to him myself…I just hope i don’t chicken out like i always do.
I heard a knock on the door..
“Come in” I said.
“Breakfast is ready” Liam said and left.
We are not on talking terms…we actually quarreled yesterday night and i was the one who caused it but I’m not gonna apologise first!
He should be mad at me…I don’t care!
Who am i kidding? Of course i care!
He would have dragged my pontsplait and we would have played till mum shouts our names.and he doesn’t knock..he’s just gonna say ‘Mara can i come in’ but he just came in and walked out like a jerk!
I slipped my feet into my slippers, picked my phone and headed out of my room.
I walked down the stairs and got to the dining room.
Liam is already seated,reading a novel but i guess mum is still in the kitchen, breakfast was already dished out on the table.
“Good morning mum” I shouted from the dining room before sitting on one of the dining chair facing Liam.
“Morning Mara” she replied.
I unlocked my phone and started playing games…we are gonna wait for Mum before touching our breakfast.
“Hey! Reduce the volume of that game..it’s distracting me” Liam said seriously.
“Okay” I said and reduced it.
He continued reading the novel and i kept glancing at him, wishing he would talk to me but he’s just so strong headed!
My gaze fell on the novel in his hand and i gasp..
” The Mystery of Revenge by this same author, Azeemah”
Damn! I’ve been searching for another of her novel after i read Meant to be and here it is in this jerk’s hand.
I’m gonna order mine,i don’t want to speak to him first..but who’s gonna pay for the delivery..
I’m gonna tell mum to pay for it.
I can live without him!
I intentionally increased the volume of the game i was playing..I want him to freaking speak to me!
“Tamara,I warned you earlier about this volume… don’t get me pissed” he said.
Damn! He called me Tamara.
“I’m not gonna enjoy the game if i don’t increase the volume and what do you mean that i shouldn’t get you pissed..you can get pissed. To hell i care” I said.
“Mind the way you talk to me okay? don’t just run your mouth and expect me to keep calm” He said.
“Whatever! You are being so mean” I scoffed..
“Why shouldn’t i be mean?” He asked.
“But you started the quarrel” I said.

“No! You did”
“What’s all these about?” We heard mum asked and glanced up.
“Liam isn’t talking to me” I said.
“What happened?” She asked and took a seat.
“We quarreled over films to watch yesterday night and i ended up breaking his film into two” I said.
“Why would you do that?” Mum asked.
“It wasn’t intentional! He pushed me” I said.
“It was intentional” he said.
“Stop!” Mum said.
“Now apologise to him” She said.
“I’m not!” I said.
“Apologise to him!” Mum insisted.
I frowned “I’m sorry”
“It’s okay” He smiled ..
I know he’s feeling high that i apologised to him and he’s gonna taunt me with it later.
“It was a fake apology” I whispered to him.
“But at least,you apologised” He whispered back with an annoying grin.
Haa! I feel like smacking this spoon on his head.
“Let’s eat” Mum said..
We opened our breakfast and it was egg and bacon..
“Have you gone to serve Max and James theirs?” I asked.
“Yeah…Liam did” she said.
Liam grinned, dropped the novel and started eating.
I stretched my hand to pick it up when i received a hard smack.
“Ouch,can’t i pick up the novel again!” I yelled.
“It’s mine,you have to take permission before taking it” he said.
“I thought you have forgiven me” I said.
“You said the apology was fake so my forgiveness was also fake” he whispered to me .
“I’m gonna order mine” I said.
“Go ahead” he replied with a mouthful.
“Table manners” Mum interrupted me.
I started eating, sending glares at Liam who keep stuffing bacon in his mouth..
I sat in the living room,with mum and Liam.
They were watching their kdrama while i waited for Kelly.
I laid on the couch, getting bored.
Where the hell is Kelly! I told him to come early.
I glanced at our practical materials on the table..
It glanced back at me..
“Where’s Kelly?” I whispered to it.
“Damn! Tam who are you talking to?” Liam asked.
I almost laughed…”it’s none of your business” I said.
“I just hope you are normal” he said and turned back to the TV.
I hissed and kept waiting for Liam..
I slept off…
“Mara…” I heard mum said from my sleep.
I perceived a familiar fragrance and opened my eyes slowly.
I saw Mum and Liam standing in front of me, already dressed up.
I yawned and sat up…
“Is your practical mate not coming anymore?” Liam asked.
“He’s coming,he should be on his way” I said slowly and glanced at the wall clock.
“We are going to the company,we will be back soon” Mum said and i nodded, feeling sad Kelly isn’t here yet.
“Are you feeling sick?” Liam asked and i shook my head.
“Talk! Stop shaking and nodding your head..you are making us worried, should i stay back?” He asked.
“No…I’m fine” I said.
“Are you sure?”
We heard a knock and Liam went to open the door.
I desperately prayed it’s Kelly..
Kelly walked in with a smile…
Haaa! Thank goodness.
“Good morning ma’am” He greeted mum.
“How are you darling?” Mum asked.
“I’m fine ma’am” he said and looked at me.
“What took you so long?” I asked.
“I’m sorry,i went to get some things” he said.
“Okay…what do you care for?” I asked..
“Nothing… thanks” he said.
“Come Sit” i said and pointed to the couch beside mine.
I looked up and found Mum and Liam staring.
“What?” I whispered..
“Liam is gonna stay back” She said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Mmm,he just told me now that he’s having runny stomach” Mum said with a smile and i knew she was lieing.
“Yeah…I’m gonna stay back” he said.
“Okay..bye Mum” I said.
“Bye ma’am” Kelly said.
“Bye darlings…take care” Mum said before walking out of the living room.
I sighed and looked from Liam to Kelly.
“Kelly,this is my brother.. Liam” I said.
“Hi Liam” Kelly said.
“Hey Kelly…how are you?” He asked.
“I’m fine… thanks” he said.
Liam went to sit and continued his kdrama.
“I thought you said you are having runny stomach?” I asked.
“Yeah..I am” he said.
“You look so comfortable” I furthered.
“Tam face the practical your friend is here for and let me be” he said.
I turned to Kelly..
“Are you sure you don’t want anything?” I asked.
“Yeah” He said.
“Okay,so should we start?” I asked.
“Of course” he said.
I reached for the practical materials on the table.
Some minutes later
“Hold the knitting pin with your right hand,then intersect it with the wool,you keep doing that and it will be forming gradually” Kelly said for the umpteenth time…
He has been teaching me but I’m not just getting it.
I was getting fed up,Liam kept sticking out his tongue at me and i guess it won’t be bad if i stick this knitting pin in his nose.
I tried it again and again and;
“I got it” I said happily..
“Yeah that’s it” Kelly smiled..
He has already gone halfway with the sweater while I’m still struggling to knit the beginning of the cap but now i got it and i was also knitting the cap fast to meet up with him.
Three hours later,we were still on the practical.
Kelly was almost done with the sweater,just remaining to add some finishing touches.
I was getting tired and i was still halfway with the cap.
Liam has dozed off on the couch and i kept laughing at how funny he looked.
Kelly is not a borer…he kept me busy with gists about his old school and all..I kept laughing and laughing and that’s the reason i was still halfway with my cap.
My hands were starting to ache..
“Isn’t your hand aching?” I asked.
“No it’s not…I’m used to it” he said.
“Aaaargh! My hand is starting to ache terribly” I said.
“Sorry” he said with so much concern..
He shouldn’t be this caring…if it was Bryan,he would pick my hand and bend it harder…haha..I miss him.
“Yes! I’m done with the sweater” he said and stretched it out..
“Wow!” I exclaimed..
It’s so beautiful…the wool is a combination and bright pink and black,the color of our school uniform.it has two pearl buttons at the front.
It’s so perfect,If i wasn’t here i wouldn’t have believed it was hand made.
“Wow…it’s beautiful” I said.
“Yeah it is…” He said and stretched it to me.
I collected it and checked it out..it’s looking more beautiful on a closer look.
“I love this” I said.
“Me too, bring the cap,let me continue with it” he said.
“Why?” I asked.
“You said your hands are aching” he said.
“Yeah but thanks, don’t help me with it” I said.
“Why?” He asked.
“You just finished knitting a whole sweater,i can’t just give the cap to you” I said.
He smiled making a dimple appear..
Awwwn…I love it.
“I’m not tired, knitting is what i enjoy doing and if you go on with the knitting..it’s not gonna be neat cause your hands are starting to ache so you won’t put in more effort like you should” he said.
“Wow…you talk so intelligently” i said.
He smiled…”I’m not in for a tease” he said.
“Seriously,I’m not teasing you..here,have it. You convinced me” I said and handed the cap to him.
He collected it and continued from where i stopped.
I folded the sweater neatly and placed it in a paper bag.
I stood up.
“I want to go make lunch for us” I said.
“Thanks…I’m starting to starve tho” he said.
I smiled…I like him for being truthful.
I walked to the kitchen,wore my apron and cap,washed my hands and started cooking pasta and chicken… Liam’s favorite…I need him to borrow me that novel.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“I hope you don’t mind if i come in” I heard and turned to see Kelly standing by the kitchen door.
I smiled…”of course..i dont mind,I need you to help me with the dishes in the sink” I said.
“I will be glad to help” he smiled and walked in.
“Are you done with the cap?” I asked.
“Yeah” he said.
“That was fast” I said and stirred the cooking pasta,I’ve boiled and fried the chicken.
“Wow! You are a good cook” he said and sniffed the aroma of the meal.
“Wait till you taste it…I’m preparing pasta and chicken” I said.
“Wow! Can’t wait” he said with a grin.
How many food monger do we have
He walked over to the sink and began washing the dishes..
I chopped the carrots on the chopping board, listening to Kelly’s gist.
I’ve added the required ingredient except carrots and spring onions.
I laughed so hard when he said a teacher in his former school fell hard on his butts while he was rushing to beat a student.
“Seriously,your former school will be full of fun..why did you leave there?” I asked and noticed his expression changed.
“My parents actually asked for a transfer,they feel Makers high school is nearer to home” He said and rinsed the last dish.
“Ohh” I said and poured the chopped carrots into the boiling pasta..I covered it back.
He dried his hands and faced me.
“So,do you find Makers high school fun?” I said and began chopping spring onions.
“Hmm… yeah, Makers high school is also fun but can’t be compared to my former school” he said.
“Didn’t you miss your friends?” I asked and poured the chopped spring onions in a small plate…I’m gonna pour it into the pasta when it’s almost done.
“I miss them so much” he said.
“I don’t know if i should ask this but do you have a girlfriend or someone you like in your former school?” I asked…
I don’t know the reason I’m suddenly free with him.
“I don’t have a girlfriend but i had someone i like,the feelings disappeared the moment i left Vaulint Hill” he said.
“Wow!” I headed to the sink to rinse the knife when i tripped, almost falling when i landed in someone’s hands.
A sweet fragrance passed through my nostrils and i sighed in relief.
Kelly caught me from falling but why isn’t he putting me down.
I raised up my head still in his arms when i met his gaze…
He has this kinda longing and pensive gaze.
I freed myself from his grip and muttered “thanks”
I rinsed the knife in the sink and found him still staring at me.
“Kelly” I called…he seemed lost in thought.
“Kelly..is anything wrong?” I asked bringing him out of his thoughts.
“Huh… Nothing” he said.
“You sure?” I asked.
“Yeah” he smiled.
“Okay… bring four three dishes from that dish drainer,pasta is almost ready” I said and poured the chopped spring onions into it.
I stirred it and left it for some minutes..
Kelly is already beside me with the plates.
“Anything else, you need?” He asked.
“Yeah.. spoons and glass cups,check that drawer for it” I said and pointed to the drawer beside the sink.
He went to get it while i put off the gas cooker.
We laughed over our meal in the dining.
Kelly and Liam seems to be getting along.
They talked about varieties of things, laughing and teasing me.
Liam loves intelligent people and Kelly is one but i wish it was Bryan that’s here…it would be more enjoyable than this.
Although i enjoyed Kelly’s company…he’s such a lovable person but i miss Bryan..
What’s he gonna be doing now?
Probably doing his practical with Laura.
“Hey! What’s that faraway look in your eyes?” Liam asked.
“Huh?… nothing” I said and continued eating.
“Tammy this is delicious” Kelly said.
“Thanks Kelly” I smiled.
“Tam is the best cook” Liam boasted making me grin.
“Wow! I’m looking forward to more of your meals” He said.
“My pleasure” I said.
“You are both talking like business associates” Liam said and we laughed.
It’s getting late and Kelly is already leaving.
“Bye Liam” he said.
“Bye Kelly” Liam smiled.
I escorted him outside where his driver is already waiting for him.
“I really enjoyed being at your place today” he said with so much happiness.
“I also enjoyed your company” I said.
He smiled…”See you on Monday”he got into his car.
“Alright…bye” I waved.
“Bye” he waved back before his driver drove off.
I headed back to the house, smiling.
We were done with our practical…
We did it in Jessie’s house beside the pool.
I picked my bag and hung it on my shoulder..
“Bye” I said.
“Hey! Wait” She said making me stop.
“What?” I asked..
“Hmm…i want you to tell me something” she said.
“What?” I asked..
“You are Tamara’s best friend right?” She asked.
“Not anymore” I said.
“Good! I believe you were still friends with Tamara during the period she went slim and beautiful?” She asked.
“Mm Yeah” I said.
“Okay,do you probably know what she did to get slim and beautiful…i promise I’m not gonna tell anyone” She said.
Damn! She shouldn’t have asked this!
Quilah is gonna hunt for her!
Quilah hates people being inquisitive over her work!
Damn! Damn! Damn!….I wished she hadn’t asked.
“Just tell me,i promise not to tell anyone” She said.
“You wanna know?” I asked.
“Yes” she replied happily.
“Then mind your business!” I said and turned to leave.
“Fool” she shouted behind me.
“Same here” I shouted back.
Why didn’t i get paired with Kelly instead of this brat!
I wonder what Mara will be doing with him right now.
Are they kissing?…Hell no!
Wait…i need to call Bryan..
That Laura girl can be something else.
“Wow! It was so nice having you here with me today” I said as i walked Laura to her car.
It’s getting late and she said she has to leave even though i didn’t want her to.
We finished our practical in the afternoon and it was the best bed spread and pillow case I’ve ever seen, even though it was hand made..it looked so beautiful and neat! All thanks to this seamstress daughter..
We ate lunch and swam and it was fun.
Laura is great…I wasn’t bored,the entire time i was with her.
She gat enough gist for a whole day.
Mum and dad liked her, especially mum who kept commenting on how beautiful and well dressed she is.
Mum needs to see how Mara looks now…
Mara is now the most beautiful girl in Makers high school..
I missed her….I wished she was my practical mate..we would have had more fun but Laura didn’t made me regret not having Mara as a partner…she made me almost laugh my lungs out.
She’s such a charming girl…Kim also took a liking to her.
“Wow! Today was fun” She said as she stood beside her car..
Her driver is in..
I said hi to him and he waved back.
“Yeah…I enjoyed your company” I said.
“Me too,i look forward to coming here some other time” She smiled.
“You are always welcome” I said.
We stared at each other for a while before i got hold of myself.
What the hell am i doing?
I cleared my throat and smiled…
“See you in school on Monday” I said.
“Same here.. thanks for today” She said and hugged me.
I wasn’t surprised cause, l had also wanted to hug her in thanks for today.
“Thanks for today also” I said and hugged her back.
I felt something spark within me, something i haven’t felt for long.
I hugged her tightly for long till her driver honked.
I smiled and released her…
I saw her blush through the headlight of the car.
“Bye” she said and got into her car.
“Bye” I waved.
Her driver drove off…
I walked back into the house grinning.
I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket.
I brought it out and looked at the screen.
I swiped to the receiver and placed it on my ear.
What happened between you and Laura today?” She asked with a yell.
Ellen,stop yelling at trival issues.. nothing happened between Laura and I” I said and smiled remembering how i hugged her.
Are you telling the truth.
Believe me or not.
If i eventually found out that you touched her,not to talk of hugging and kissing…I will make the both of you regret it.
How do you expect me not to touch my practical mate! Should i keep shifting back if s..” I was saying but she has always hung up.
“Aaaargh…i can’t wait for three months to be over!”

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)

(Zeemah writes )
“Jessie Baird is dead” Mr Allen said.
I sat still in shock!
I know what killed her!
I knew who killed her!
She’s the only child of her parents!
She shouldn’t have asked me anything about Mara.
But,Quilah gives warning before hurting someone.
I didn’t know tears has started rolling down my cheeks.
Even with how mean Jessie is,I’ve never wished her death.
The whole class screamed and everyone started crying.
Jessie is well known in the school,even if she use to be a bully…she entertains people a lot and a lot of people loves her.
I looked over at Mara and found her weeping..
She looked so hurt and sad.
But she was the cause of Jessie’s death!
If she had just remain being fat, Jessie wouldn’t have been inquisitive.
Well…I pushed Mara into what she did so she’s not to blame.
I’m the one to be blamed!
I caused everything!
I regret ever helping Mara.
I cried not only because of Jessie but for myself.
I’m so scared…Quilah might hurt me too.
I watched as everyone cried, shouting and wailing.
Some were almost screaming out their lungs.
It’s so obvious everyone is pained..this is just so sad.
I cleaned my tears but more keep rolling down my cheeks…i couldn’t believe i can be crying for Jessie this much.
I suddenly missed her.
I was actually planning on making her my friend and now she’s gone.
I was so pissed with her when I got disqualified for the practical..I had thought she intentionally didn’t come not knowing she was battling with Quilah at that moment.
I’ve never felt this terrible.
This is way too much, Jessie just died like a normal chicken.
The wails got louder and i couldn’t help but feel guilty.
“I want everyone in the school podium,we have to announce this” Mr Allen said and walked out with the two other teachers.
No one stood up… everyone was buried in cries.
I watched as Bryan patted Mara’s back and i felt more enraged.
Does he loves her or what?
I shouldn’t be bothered about that now, presently the whole class is in tears..I shouldn’t be thinking of all this!
“Oh..no Jessie is gone” I cried as we headed towards our cars in the parking lot.
It was a shock and i didn’t believe at first but it seems real!
Mr Allen told everyone to go home earlier than closing time.
Bryan held my hand and i saw how hard he was trying to hold his tears.
Jessie can be so mean but she doesn’t deserve death.
Such a beautiful girl doesn’t deserve death!
Sometimes i get jealous of her looks cause everything about her is complete natural.
Grade 8 student’s are the saddest people right now in Makers high school.
Everyone cried for her…Bryan, Kelly,Ellen,Laura and i cried as we stood in the parking lot.
Other students got into their cars with tears still in their eyes.
It hurts so much to lose someone like that.
School will be totally boring without Jessie.
I’m starting to miss her.
Why couldn’t she live just for us,her family,her friends and everyone.
What was the cause of her death?
Did she fell sick?
“Ellen, Jessie was your practical mate right?” I asked and she nodded wiping off her tears.
This is the soft side of Ellen…she’s so emotional.
“Did she show any sign of sickness while you were at her place?” I asked.
“She d..idnt ,she was so health– Wait..why the hell am i talking to you” She yelled in tears making me flinch.
“We lost a friend and all you can do is yell!” Bryan barked.
He’s also as pained as everyone about Jessie’s sudden death.
“Bye” Ellen said and walked towards her car in tears.
She got in and her driver drove off.
Ellen’s cry rate is totally off,she acts like she’s feeling guilty or so but what could she be feeling guilty about?..she’s only worried about Jessie’s sudden death.
“I can’t believe Jessie is gone so soon,she was such a sweet girl” Laura cried.
“Yeah She was,even if she acts mean at times..no one would have wished her dead” Kelly said sadly.
“I will leaving for home now…bye” Bryan said and also walked towards his car,he got in and Rollins drove off.
I remained there with Kelly and Laura…who stood saying nothing.
“Bye” We all said at the same time.
Each person walked towards their car got in.
“Hi Max” I said sullenly.
“Mara why are you crying?” He asked.
“I lost a friend” I said and cried more loudly.
I won’t be seeing Jessie anymore.
No one is gonna be stepping on my toes!
No one is gonna be teasing me!
No one is gonna make me mad!
No one! No one! No one!
I’m gonna miss Jessie.
“I’m so sorry about that..may her soul rest in peace” Max said tensely.
He turned on the ignition and started driving out of the school gate.
I peered out of the windscreen and saw Laura and Kelly’s cars gone.
I sighed and rested my back..
Max drove into the compound and parked at a suitable shade.
I picked my backpack and alighted from the car.
I walked straight into the house..
I met Liam laying on the couch but not asleep.
He was busy with his phone.
He looked up at me and smiled..
He suddenly sat up when he saw how strained and puffy my eyes looks.
“What happened…did Mr Curt flogged you again?..I swear I’m not gonna let him off the hook this time” he said and slipped into his footwear.
He stood up.
“Jessie is dead!” I announced and saw his phone fell from his hand.
His eyes widened in shock as he momentarily sat back on the couch staring into space.
“Oh..my..God” he muttered slowly over and over.
Liam and Jessie do not get along,but i know Liam likes her a lot. He only threatens her so she can let me be.
Liam doesn’t have a thing against her,so as i and everyone.
I can tell he’s more shocked than i am.
“W..what was the cause of her death?” He asked trying hard not to cry..
I know he’s gonna cry once he gets to his room.
“We were not told” I sniffled.
I walked up the stairs to my room not wanting to burst into tears again.
I opened the door and got in.
I dropped my backpack on the floor,sat on the bed and cried.
My tears dropped on my pop sock making it gum to my skin.
I cared less as i cried, remembering the moments Jessie was alive.
I wish i had treated her more nicely.
I wish i hadn’t beaten her up the day she smashed my phone.
I wish i hadn’t responded to any of her insults.
But she was mean to me,how could i have known she’s gonna die soon.
I wish you rest in peace Jessie…I’m so gonna miss you.
I yawned after crying for a while..
I pulled off my shoes and laid on the bed,i tried staying awake but the sleep won.
I opened my eyes slowly as i felt an headache over take me.
My head is aching seriously..
I yawned and felt my eyes has gone heavier.
My mouth was so dry and bitter.
I rubbed my forehead and yawned once more.
I turned to the other side of the bed and flinched on seeing Mum and Liam beside me.
Liam’s eyes is so red and puffy,mum looks a bit sad and that was when i remembered Jessie..
The headache increased with full force making my entire body tremble.
I drew the blanket closer to me as i felt suddenly cold.
I noticed i was still in my uniform..I didn’t pull it off before falling asleep.
“Mara… Liam told me about your friend..I’m so sorry about that okay?” Mum said pitifully bringing tears to my eyes.
I sneezed and coughed the next minute.
Mum felt my temperature and gasped.
“Mara you’ve caught the flu..you are burning hot” She said.
I’m burning hot,yet I’m feeling damn cold.
“Will you go to the hospital?” She asked.
I shook my head sharply.
“How exactly are you feeling?” She asked.
“Just headache and cold” I said praying inwardly she won’t force me to the hospital.
“Liam, go put a call through Doc Mart, explain how Mara is feeling for him” She said.
“Okay mum… sorry huh?” Liam pecked my forehead and left the room.
“Is the..is she your best friend?” Mum asked.
“No” I replied sadly…she was not even my friend.
“You care so much about her?” She asked and i nodded.
I didn’t even know i care this much about her until i heard she’s dead.
“Don’t worry huh? May her soul rest in peace” Mum said.
“Amen” I said.
The headache kept increasing but i couldn’t talk cause mum is gonna force me to the hospital.
Liam walked back into my room..
Doc Mart said you should run a cold bath for her and he also prescribed some medications for me..I will quickly go to the pharmacy and get it now” He said.
“Alright.. don’t take long please” Mum said as she felt my temperature again..
I just hope she won’t change her mind and send me to the hospital.
“Okay Mum… Sorry Tam,i love you” He said before walking out of my room.
“I love you too” I said but was not sure if he heard me.
“Get up…Doc Mart said you should run a cold bath” Mum said.
I held out my hand and she helped me up, almost carrying me in her arms if i hadn’t refused.
They treat me like a kid and it’s sometimes annoying.
I picked my towel.
“I will help you select an outfit, quickly go have a bath” Mum said and turned towards my wardrobe.
I peeled off my school uniform and wrapped my towel around my body.
The headache seemed to be increasing and decreasing..
I walked to the bathroom, dreading the fact that I’m gonna bath with cold water despite how cold I’m feeling.
I got into the outfit mum selected for me.
It was a pink tank top with white shorts.
I had felt so relieved after bathing.
But the headache still took the better part of me.
I finally zipped the shorts and landed back on the bed.
Mum drew closer to me with an hair dryer,she plugged it on the socket beside my bed and began drying my hair.
I forgot to use my shower cap,due to how badly i wanted to return back to bed,it was late when i realised it and i can’t walk out of the shower to pick my shower cap after my hair has gone wet already.
I didn’t know mum was done drying my hair until i didn’t hear the sound of the dryer anymore.
She switched off the socket, unplugged the dryer and returned it back to the drawer.
She picked an hair pack from the shelf and walked back to me.
She helped me pack my hair in a simple bun and told me to lay back on the bed.
I did, and I’ve never felt more better.
I stared at the ceiling as mum walked about putting things in place.
Tears clouded my eyes but it couldn’t drop due to how im laying.
I felt mum sat beside me on the bed.
“Mara..it’s okay huh?” She said and took my hand in hers.
I nodded and that made the tears in my eyes roll sideways.
Mum sighed and kept on patting my hand..
Liam walked in with my medications.
Mum collected it from him..
“How did he say she should take it?” She asked.
“Two pills of the red one while a pill of the white one” he said.
Mum nodded and started bringing it out.
“Bring a glass cup of water” she said to him.
“Doc Mart said she must have a meal before taking any of the medications” Liam said,the mere mention of ‘meal’ made me feel like puking.
“Okay..Mara what do you want eat?” Mum asked.
“I don’t want anything” I said.
“Should i prepare pancake and omelette ?” She asked.
“No…I don’t feel like eating anything right now” I said.
“But you have to eat something before taking your medication” Mum said.
“I know. But I don’t want anything,i don’t have appetite for anything” I said.
“Then how will you take your medication?” She asked.
“I will take it tomorrow when I feel like eating” I said.
“Are you being serious right now?” Liam asked.
“Mara please you just have to take something! ” Mum said.
“And i said,i don’t want anything..I will take the medication tomorrow…I’m starting to feel better” I lied…the headache was increasing as i kept on taking and i was shivering beneath the blanket.
“You don’t wanna take anything right? Then get up,you are going with me to the hospital” Mum said making me groan.
“You can just have little of the meal,just eat something please” Liam persuaded.
I nodded not wanting mum to get serious about her threat of taking me to the hospital.
With that crazy sick smell and some other annoying smell which always made me wanna puke.
“Okay..Liam go make pan– No! you may end up burning it to the scratch” Mum said and stood up.
“I will be right back angel” She pecked my cheeks before walking out.
Liam took her position and began stroking my hair.
I held his hand and weep silently.
He sniffled…”It’s so hard to believe that girl is gone,i don’t really get along with her but i like her so much..she’s one beautiful girl..i never even thought she will gone so soon” He said sadly.
I cried…”She’s just a teenager, aspiring to be great in the future but death…it’s just so sad!”
Liam nodded…”i kept putting myself in her parents shoes,she’s an only child right?”
“Yeah…her parents are still very young to have another child but loosing a grown up is unbearable”
“Was she sick or something?” Liam asked.
“Ellen said she didn’t show any sign of sickness while she was at her place on Saturday…I really wanna know the cause of her death” I said curiously.
“Me too” Liam said.
“I’m gonna find out when we attend her burial” i said.
Mum returned with a plate of steaming pancake and omelette placed on a silver tray with a bottle of water and glass cup.
Liam stood up and collected it from her.
She placed my bedside lamp on the floor and shifted the bedside table closer to me.
Liam placed the tray on it,that was when i saw how delicious it looks.
My dried mouth was suddenly salivated.
Mum helped me up..
“Should i feed you?” Liam asked.
I shook my head…”my hand isn’t broken”
I started eating and each bite got more delicious..
I ended up emptying the plate to everyone’s surprise and mine also.
I twisted the cap of the bottled water and poured some into the glass cup..
I gulped it down and felt more better.
I gazed up and saw Mum and Liam grinning..
They tried to stop but i already caught them.
“What?” I asked.
