“Nothing…just take your medication and go to sleep” she said.
“You said you had no appetite,yet you finished the whole meal” Liam teased.
I shot him a look and he laughed,i sighed…how did i end up finishing the entire meal.
“Well..I’m glad you ate,it’s gonna make the medication work faster” Mum said and dropped two different pills in my outstretched palm.
I threw it directly into my throat then quickly gulped it down with water.
I dropped the empty glass cup with a sigh and laid back on the bed.
“Liam take that tray back to the kitchen” Mum said.
“Is there still some pancake and omelette left for me?” He asked.
“Yeah…” Mum responded.
He walked out of the room with the tray.
Mum shifted my bedside table back to its place,and then placed the lamp back on it.
I was starting to doze off…mum tucked me perfectly into the blanket and sat beside me.
She watched me as i slept…
Five days later
It’s a sunday..
Mum, Liam and i walked into the house after attending Jessie’s burial.
It was so disheartening, everyone ended up crying..
Bryan, Kelly,Ellen,Laura,Ammy and most of our classmates were present. Mr Allen and all the teachers were also present..
I didn’t see her body cause it was placed in a designer coffin..I almost wept out my eyes.
It was a sad occurrence…
Jessie’s parents just stood numb at the burial,they were still as shocked as everyone over their daughter’s burial.
The burial rite was finished in three hours and everyone left sadly for their home.
I didn’t talk to anyone at the burial except Bryan whom i wept in his arms.
I was shocked when we were told about the cause of her death.
She was bleeding from the chest.
The autopsy report shows that a sharp object was pierced into her chest and yet no object was found.
The four detectives investigating Jessie’s case were found dead,since then every detective avoided the case like a plague.
The case was closed.
“I will be in my room” I said to Mum and Liam who already sat on the couch.
I climbed the stairs to my room and kept wondering how Jessie’s death came about.
I opened the door to my room and closed it behind me.
I sat in the bed and placed my face in my palms.
I feel like finding out about it,i feel like getting to the root of her death.
“Tamara Weston” I heard a thick voice said.
Fear ran down my spine as i raised up my head slowly..
My worst nightmare was confirmed when i saw Quilah leaning beside my shelf.
I screamed loudly and got up from my bed.
I rushed to the door and pulled it open but it didn’t bulge..
I kept throwing fist at it, dragging the door knob with all my strength but the crazy door didn’t bulge.
I was already covered in sweat…I turned back in fright but couldn’t find her beside my shelf anymore.
She was sitting right on the bed with a grin on her face.
“Keep on screaming and pushing the door open…no one will hear you and the door won’t bulge” She laughed.
She’s in her normal red robe but she wore her hair differently,it’s packed in two ponytails,then she plait the tip and—
Pontsplait!
“Yeah…I made pontsplait, doesn’t it look good on me?” She asked.
“I..it does” I said…her pontsplait is so long reaching her feet.
“Anyways,i came to warn you!” She said in a hoarse voice.
Warn me?
About what?
“Yeah I’m gonna tell you what i came here to warn you about but first,see this” She said and stretched her hand.
I flinched and ended up hurting my arm when a shiny sword appeared in her hand.
She held it tightly…my legs were starting to tremble.
“P..lease don’t hurt me” I cried.
“I won’t hurt you! I came here to warn you..stop being inquisitive!!” She suddenly yelled.
“I’m not being inquisitive” I cried, praying she won’t hurt me.
“This is the sword i used to kill Jessie” She said.
I stood shocked and couldn’t feel my feet anymore.
I wobbled to the floor and stared in disbelief.
“She was being inquisitive about you! About your sudden transformation! I warned her but she didn’t heed…have Ellen ever told you i hate inquisitiveness?” She asked and i was forced to shake my head.
I was still in shock knowing she was the one who killed Jessie.
But I’m not being inquisitive…
‘What am i being inquisitive about?’ I thought.
“You are being inquisitive about Jessie’s death and i hate inquisitiveness over my work!” She said.
“I..I’m S..orry,i won’t be I..inqui..sitive anymore” I stammered in tears.
“Good of you..if Jessie has been obedient as you,i wouldn’t have killed her!” She said.
She laughed and threw up the sword…it disappeared into thin air..
“I will be leaving now” She said and turned to the wall.
I started breathing sigh of relief when she suddenly turned back making my breathing cease for a moment.
“I will come back for you!!” She said and disappeared just like the sword.
“What have i gotten myself into” I cried.

Kelly’s POV
I woke up to the beeping of my alarm.
I sat up on the bed and stretched forth.
I placed one leg on the floor and yawned loudly.
I dismissed the alarm and placed my second leg on the floor.
I stood up from the bed and adjusted my pajamas.
I waited to hear the sound of my parents fighting.
I smiled when i didn’t hear any sound.
Their fight seems to have reduced the day i lashed out at them.
I need to get ready for school…
Last week has been a sad week for everyone due to Jessie’s death.
Her death was just so sudden and surprising.
Even though im not close to her,i felt the pain of her death.
I walked into the bathroom and picked my toothbrush and paste.
I stood in front of the sink and applied some paste on the toothbrush.
I started brushing my teeth…
I rinsed my mouth and toothbrush after i had finished brushing.
I kept it back in it’s place and proceeded to the bathtub.
I pulled off my pajamas and filled the tub with warm soapy water before sliding in.
I was done bathing in some minutes..
I headed back to my room…
I opened my closet and picked my hanged school uniform..
I bent a little and selected an underwear.
I closed the closet and began dressing for school.
I stood in front of the mirror,i was done dressing up,I just need to brush my hair and apply a little hair oil…it’s looking dry.
I picked my favorite hair brush,then brushed down my hair.
I applied enough hair oil,then adjust it while looking at my reflection in the mirror.
I wore my shoes over my white socks,then stood up to rearrange my hair.
I picked my backpack from the couch,glanced at my room one last time before walking out.
I met Dad in the living room watching his regular TV show.
Mum has probably gone to her business.
Dad doesn’t really go to work,he has people controlling his businesses for him..he goes to work once in a while to check how things are going.
I’m glad mum isn’t home, there would have been another round of hot fight.
“Good morning Dad” I greeted.
He turned..”Kel how was your night?”
“Fine Dad”
“Alright,your breakfast is in the kitchen” he said.
I nodded and walked into the kitchen.
I perceived the aroma of sandwich but i shrugged it off… I dont feel like eating anything.
I quickly made coffee,then doused it with cream.
I gulped it down and rinsed the coffee cup in the sink.
I dried my hand with the dishcloth and walked out of the kitchen.
“Bye dad” I said.
“Bye Kel…I want to take you out once you are back from school today..you know it been sooo long” he said.
“Thanks dad” I said and walked out of the house..
I had wanted to tell him I’m not interested but that’s gonna make him feel bad for the rest of the day.
I greeted Tina,my new driver..
My old driver was hit by a large stool during one of mum and dad’s fight.
He was rushed to the hospital,and after getting well,he insisted on not coming back to this house anymore…that wasn’t the first time,he got hit during my parents fights and i can’t blame him for refusing to come back.
I miss him so much cause I’ve gotten so used to him.
Tina is a good lady,but i prefer Hillster to her.
I wonder why mum employed a female driver…I had thought she was mum’s driver at first but was surprised when she told me,she’s gonna be my driver.
I opened the car door and got in.
She turned on the ignition, reversed out of the garage and then drove out of the open gate heading to my school.
My stomach rumbled in excitement,i don’t just get the reason i always look forward to see Tammy.
It’s normal tho…she’s just a friend.
Tina dropped me at school..i waved her bye and walked into the school’s main compound..i climbed the stairs to my classroom.
I walked in and was engulfed by ‘stares’ I ignored it and headed to my seat..
This school should have been named “Stares”
No one will come into this classroom without being followed by stares and it’s sometimes annoying!
I got to my seat and sat down before saying “hi” to Bryan.
Mara isn’t in school yet.
“Hey buddy, what’s up?” He asked nicely.
“I’m fine” I replied and dropped my backpack beside my desk.
“I gat this funny video.. come let’s watch it” He said and dragged me to Mara’s seat which was beside his.
I smiled as i peered into his iPod.
Bryan is so nice and i sometimes get so jealous of him.
We both raised our heads as Mara walked into the classroom.
Damn! Why’s this heart suddenly beating fast the moment she walked in.
She’s not looking very bright and i really hope she’s okay.
She headed towards her seat oblivious of the admiring stares she got.
She suddenly smiled..
That smile zapped every brain cell i had even though it wasn’t directed to me,it was directed to Bryan and i suddenly felt a pang of jealousy.
Haa! I can’t just describe that feeling she normally gives me anytime i set my eyes on her.
Is it because she’s beautiful? Lovely? and amazing?
Is it those things that makes my heart pump anytime she’s around.
I know the feeling but I’m not ready to admit it yet.
How can i love someone just few weeks of resuming school.
Obviously she doesn’t think of me as anything but her friend.
I sometimes envy the relationship between Bryan and her,they act like a couple.
Just imagine, she didn’t look bright when she walked into the class but her face brightened immediately she saw Bryan.
Bryan doesn’t even treat Ellen as nice as he treats Mara.
I just have to get rid of this funny feelings I’m having for her but I’m afraid i can’t!
I shifted back to my seat.
“Hey Bryan” she said as she sat down.
“Hi Miss pontsplait” he said and she laughed.
“I’ve missed that name” She giggled.
“How was your night?” He asked.
“Awesome” She said and shifted closer to him,then whispered something to his ear.
They both bursted out laughing and i felt my heart rage.
Their laughter subsided and she turned to me.
She always have all the good times with Bryan first before turning to me like she wasn’t aware im sitting beside her.
That hurts a lot! But what did i expect..they’ve been friends since grade 6.
“Hi Kelly” She smiled.
“Hey” I replied.
“Com’on reply me well” She said and poked my chest.
I found myself laughing…I so much love this girl.
Huh? Love? No!!
“Okay,hi Tammy” I said.
“Good boy”
“I’m not a boy” I said.
“Okay, good man” she said and we laughed..
She turned to Laura and tapped her shoulder…
Laura turned and smiled on seeing it was Tammy.
I noticed she likes Tammy a lot but Tammy doesn’t really like her.
“Hi Mara… good morning” She smiled.
“Good morning Laura,how are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine” she said.
“Ellen good morning” Tammy said.
Even with how mean this so called Ellen is to her,she still tries to talk to her but always ends up being snubbed.
Ellen didn’t reply her as usual and i held the urge to lash out at her, she’s so wicked and unfeeling!
“Bring your ear closer” She said.
I did and she whispered a joke in my ear.
My heart beat accelerated when i felt her hot breath against my neck.
I ended up laughing cause her breath tickles.
“I’m not done telling you,and you’ve started laughing” She said.
Bryan laughed…”The joke is funny right?”
“Yeah it is” I said.
Damn! I can’t believe he wasn’t pissed that Mara whispered in my ear.
I can relate on how pissed and jealous i felt when she whispered in his ear but he just acted cool.
Does this mean he doesn’t feel anything for Tammy,if he does..he should be getting jealous as i always do.
They are just friends and I’m secretly glad,he has nothing for her.
Does that gives me the chance?
“I can’t believe you all have the gut to smile and laugh after loosing a friend a week ago” Ellen blurted.
We ignored her and that got her more pissed.
Mara’s POV
I turned to Bryan…
He dropped his iPod and turned to look at me.
“You look sweet” he said.
“Thank you” I blushed.
“But…is there anything bothering you?” He asked.
“No..why did you ask?”
“You know my subconsciousness does not deceive me…I feel there is something wrong,i keep having that feeling over and over again.. Mara if there is anything,you can confide in me okay?” He asked.
That brought tears to my eyes…Bryan’s subconsciousness is always right,i remembered when we were in grade 7,he said he had a feeling a teacher is gonna die soon and it happened…the teacher died,we all thought it was coincidence but more incidents happened which proved Bryan’s subconsciousness is always right.
I know i might be in danger,not when Quilah said she will be back for me.
“It’s okay Mara,you don’t have to cry. It’s just a subconsciousness, nothing is gonna happen huh?” He said and placed his arm round my shoulders..
I suddenly felt at ease… just the feel of his hand on my shoulders brought the comfort i could ever imagined.
“Tammy what’s wrong?” Kelly asked.
I shook my head.
“Nothing, she will be fine” Bryan said.
I’m so afraid….
Why did i step my feet into all this at the first place.
Lunch break.
“I want pizza rolls” I said to Bryan as he and Kelly went to order lunch.
Laura,Ellen and i remained at the table.
Laura is now part of us, I won’t say she’s now our friend.
I’m not fully in support of her being around Bryan all the time.
“You love pizza rolls so much” Laura said and i know she’s trying to bring up a conversation.
She seems nice but i don’t just trust her yet.
“Yeah…I love fries and chicken also” I said.
“Really?”
“Yeah” I said.
“Initially, that was one of my best meals” she said.
“Oh” I replied.
Bryan and Kelly returned with our lunch,they placed it on the table and went to order theirs.
We waited for them to arrive before we all started eating.
I was eating and pondering on what Bryan said when i caught him wink at Kelly before laughing.
Kelly nodded and smiled, Bryan made a gesture of “Call me” and i saw Kelly nodded happily.
What’s wrong with this two?

RELATED: DESTINY TO LOVE

Bryan’s POV
I smiled when i caught Kelly stealing glances at Mara for the umpteenth time.
I already know before now that he has feelings for Mara,it’s so obvious with the way he behaves towards her.
I’m surprised Mara still don’t know how much Kelly loves her,I’ve been waiting for her to reciprocate his feelings but she’s not doing so.
She’s not even acting like she knows anything… i know within me that she does not have feelings for Kelly but we can make that work.
She also deserves to have someone in her life,i wish she can just notice how much Kelly loves her.
I’m glad he’s our friend, that’s gonna make it easier.
Mara might also have feelings for him,but maybe she’s just not ready to admit it.
I know the type of guys Mara likes.
Kelly fits so well into that description and i know everything is gonna fall into place.
I grinned as i wondered how much they will love each other once they start dating.
I need to see how Mara would look once they start dating,she will be so happy…and that will also be my happiness cause there’s nothing more glad than seeing your bestie happy.
Kelly caught me looking at him,i winked at him but he wore a confused look..
I laughed at how his face looks.
I secretly pointed to Mara,he seems surprised but nodded..
“Call me” i whispered,we need to talk about it..he grinned happily and i smiled..
I will be so glad to help… Mara deserves the best and i think Kelly is the best guy for her.
“Hope you both are not planning to kidnap us?” Mara asked making us laugh.
“Of course no! You will be so glad at what we are planning to do” i said.
“Really?” She asked.
“Yeah”
“I hope so” she sighed.
“Should i order more pizza rolls for you?” Kelly asked her.
“No,once I’m done with this..i will eat from yours and Bryan’s” She grinned.
“Mine is almost finished,so you have to eat from Kelly’s” I said.
She smirked…”Stingy Mr pontsplait”
I laughed…”Miss pontsplait the food monger”
She picked her chop sticks and i know she’s about to hit it on my head.
I smiled and pushed Kelly’s head forward.
The chopsticks landed on his head and we all laughed…
We returned back to class after lunch break.
We sat in our respective seats and waited for our next teacher; Mrs Ardsley to come in.
Kelly seems more happy and he kept grinning…I know he can’t wait to get home and give me a call..
Mara is oblivious of what’s going on,she focused on her mathematics textbook.
“Bryan, explain this equation to me” She said pointing to an equation.
“I don’t know it” I lied.
“You are lying” She said.
I laughed…”okay..I know it but I don’t feel like explaining anything…meet Kelly”
She twitched her nose and hit the textbook on my head before turning to Kelly.
I saw how glad Kelly was when Mara showed him the equation and told him to explain to her.
He did and i can tell Mara was impressed.
Yes! He has scored a goal.
Just remaining a goal to her heart and we are gonna plan that our soon.
I turned to Ellen…
“What’s up babe” I said and crossed my arm on her shoulder.
“Let me be” she said.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
” You just kept acting like I’m not your girlfriend! Even if it’s just for three months… at least treat me with respect” She said and i felt bad immediately.
“But you were always getting on my nerves” I said.
“And so? Shouldn’t you be able to tolerate me for three months” she said.
“Okay, I’m sorry” I said but she shrugged.
“I’m sorry babe” I pecked her cheeks.
She smiled…”I’m gonna come to your house one of these days” She said.
“Okay..you are welcome anytime” I said.
“You’ve not bought me any gift since we started dating” she pouted.
“What do you want me to get for you?” I asked.
“I want you to take me out,let’s go have a nice time” She said.
“Okay, when would you like us to go out?” I asked.
“I’m gonna tell you soon,I need to think of a perfect date” She smiled.
“Alright babe,once you are ready” I said.
“Thanks B. I love you” she hugged me.
I smiled and hugged her back..
I’m doing all this to make the three months remarkable for her…I don’t love her.
I can’t wait for three months the three months to be over…my heart is somewhere else.
Yeah! Somewhere else
Mrs Ardsley came into the class and we began another round of school work.
School over.
“Let’s go home” Kelly said excitedly..
Students were starting to troop out of the class.
We all stood up and wore our backpacks.
I held Ellen’s hand in mine as we made our way downstairs to the parking lot.
“Don’t forget to call me” i whispered to Kelly when we got to the parking lot.
“Of course… that’s the reason I’m rushing home” He whispered back with a smile.
He so much loves Mara and i hope she’s gonna love him too.
Everyone said “bye” . Got into their cars and left.
I got home and walked into the living room.
I met no one.
I heard some sounds in the kitchen,I walked there and peeped in.
I saw Kim making deserts…I smiled hungrily.
“Hi Kim” I said and strolled into the kitchen.
“Kelly,how are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine.. where’s Mum and dad?” I asked.
“They are not back from work” She said.
“Okay” I said, staring at the cake on the kitchen counter.
“Go freshen up,then I’m gonna dish out some for you” Kim said.
That didn’t stop me from picking a slice of red velvet cake before running out of the kitchen.
“Bryan!” Kim yelled…I giggled.
So delicious…
I climbed the stairs to my room and unlocked the door.
I walked in and closed the door behind me.
I dropped my backpack on the sofa,then pulled off my shoes and socks..
I picked my towel and hurried into the bathroom.
I can’t wait to devour the whole of that cake.
**
I walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around my waist.
My body was dripping wet as i opened the wardrobe.
I selected black shorts with black singlet.
I dried my body and quickly wore my selected clothes.
I hanged my towel back on the rail and slipped into my foot wear.
I was about walking out of my room when i heard my phone rang.
I unzipped my backpack and brought it out.
“Kelly”
I smiled and swiped it to the receiver..
I clicked on the speaker,then placed it on the table.
Hello Bryan.
Hi Kelly.
You know the reason I’m calling right?
Yeah… because of Mara.
I heard him sigh Bryan,i don’t know how to say this but i think i like Tammy.
You don’t think you do…You do. It’s a matter of fact, you have feelings for Mara right?
Yeah…I..i do.
Then go ahead and tell her.
I..i can’t.
I laughed… Are you afraid?.
No I’m not but what if she does not feel the same way about me.
She may not, but she will also think about it once you ask her out.
I’m still afraid to tell her cause it might spoil this little relationship between us…I don’t even know how i fell in love with her,it was so sudden and i tried to get rid of the feeling but it just won’t leave.
Yeah… that’s how true love is … If you tell Mara all these,trust me. She’s gonna give it a thought.
What if she rejects my proposal?
She will,at first … that’s normal. But you will keep pushing it.
Okay… should i tell her about it tomorrow?
Hmm…no.
Why?
You know it’s just remaining few weeks to Fallen angels concert?
Yeah.
Just ask her out few days after the concert cause she’s gonna be in a very good mood then, that would make it easier for you.
Wow.. that’s true, thanks buddy.
It’s nothing…do you mind coming over to my house,let’s discuss it more.
Of course i will gladly come,text me your address.
I smiled…he’s crazily in love.
Okay…I’m gonna text it to you now… Bye.
Bye..
I disconnected the call and quickly text my address to Kelly.
I dropped my iPod and smiled..
I’m glad…Mara finally has someone who truly loves her.
She deserves the best cause she’s the best herself.
I just hope this works out..
It must! Cause they are a perfect match
“My cake!” I ran out of my room and headed straight to the kitchen.

Some weeks later
Mara’s POV
“Get up Tam…it’s 6 pm” I heard Liam said as he stirred me from my sleep.
I yawned…”6 pm for what?”
“Have you forgotten this evening is Fallen angels concert” He said making me jump out of the bed in excitement.
He laughed…
“Do i need to bath?” I asked excitedly.
“Yeah.. you are gonna look more fresh if you do” he said.
I picked my towel and ran into the bathroom.
“Take it easy” Liam said.
I heard the door of my room open and close and i know he has left my room.
I pulled off the skirt and sweatshirt i was wearing and threw it into the closet,my undies also followed it.
I wore my shower cap over my hair and got under the shower.
I turned on the faucet and began bathing.
I turned off the faucet and stepped out of the shower.
I picked my towel and wrapped it around my body.
I walked back to my room and opened the wardrobe.
The pink mini gown i had selected for today was hanged neatly in my wardrobe.
I picked it and closed my wardrobe..I opened my drawer and selected matching undies.
I threw them on the bed and began drying my body.
After that,i picked my body lotion and rubbed it smoothly on my skin.
I wore my undies and my mini gown followed.
I stood in front of my mirror and smiled at how fitted the gown is.
It has a scooped neckline,with a white striking pattern.
It stopped far above my knees, hugging tightly to my curves.
I smiled and sat on the dressing chair.
I need to apply a little make up,i brought out my little make up kit, opened it and began applying the necessary one on my face.
I was done in some minutes…I stared at my reflection in the mirror and i was satisfied with the way i look.
The make up is simple and stunning..
My pink lips gloss shone brightly.
“Now to the hair” I said and removed my shower cap.
I picked my hair lotion, rubbed it between my palms and applied it on my hair.
I picked the brush and began brushing it down.
I brushed, brushed and brushed my hair for minutes.
I stopped when i was satisfied at how smooth it looks.
I’m not gonna pack it,I’m gonna leave it to flow down my back.
I smoothened it with my hands and stood up from the dressing chair.
I walked to my shoe rack and selected white minimal sandals.
I slipped my feet into it and picked up my white shoulder bag.
I sighed and walked to the mirror..I stood there and gasped at my reflection.
So perfect!
Bryan is sure gonna propose to me tonight!
I smiled and walked out of my room..
I can’t wait to see Fallen angels today..
I descended the stairs slowly tucking my hair behind my ears at each step.
I finally got to the living room…
I stood surprised as i saw Bryan, Kelly and Ellen already dressed sitting on the couch.
Bryan is putting on a pair of blue jeans, white top which was covered with blue denim jacket,with white sneakers…his hair is styled differently making him look more stunning.
Wow!…I love him more.
Kelly is putting on a grey t-shirt with black jeans, white sneakers and white face cap.
So simple and cute!
Ellen is putting on a blue cut off jeans with a bright yellow crop top,blue sandals and blue fashion glasses.
She’s wearing a tiny gold necklace and her hair is in roll waves,beside her is a blue shoulder bag and i must confess…Ellen looks so beautiful and sexy.
I suddenly felt like going back inside to change but they all turned at that minute and i felt so embarrassed even if i had to quickly fake a smile.
“Hi guys” I said and walked to them.
“Wow! You look totally beautiful” Kelly exclaimed.
I smiled…”Thanks Kelly”
“Miss pontsplait looks more stunning tonight” Bryan said and i felt my cheeks go hot.
“Thanks Bryan…I didn’t know you guys were around” I said.
“Yeah…we came not quite long” Kelly said.
“Okay…Liam will be ready soon” I said and sat beside Kelly.. Ellen was already occupying the couch beside Bryan so i had no choice.
“He’s already done dressing,he went to pick something” Bryan said.
“Okay…Hi Ellen,you are looking more beautiful” I said.
“Thanks” she said forcefully and placed her gaze back to her phone.
Liam walked down the stairs and i turned to look at him.
He’s putting on a pure white top with some black drawing at the front..A pair of skinny black jeans and white shoes.
He has a black face cap on with white cut glasses which made the redness if his lips stood out.
He smiled and;
What a cute bro I’ve got!
I just hope he won’t cause quarrel at the concert cause ladies are always leaving their boyfriends to flirt with him.
“So everyone,are we ready?” He asked.
“Yeah”
We arrived at the venue of the concert and my stomach kept bubbling with excitement as we all stepped out of the car.
I held Liam’s hand as we walked to the entrance of the arena.
I cling to Liam when a scary looking bouncer stared at me.
Liam chuckled and everyone brought out their tickets.
We showed him and we were led inside the hall to the VIP section.
Damn! people were so much!
Everyone was settled and it was time for fallen angels to come up the stage..
Everyone held their breath,the stage was dark and suddenly dimly there was a sparkle in the distance,just like meteors..Fallen angels came out .. there was a tiny spotlight and everyone could see them clearly.
I released the breath I didn’t know i was holding.
I gripped Bryan’s hand…
“Bryan they are too beautiful,they are truly angels” I cried.
Everyone gasped, amazed at their beauty.
Everyone suddenly held out their phones and started taking pictures including me.
We were in the VIP so we were close to them.
My phone fell from my hand and I quickly picked it up and continued taking pictures.
They are right in out front on the beautiful high stage.
OMG… Vinnie my role model,I wish i could jump on that freaking stage and hug her .
She’s wearing a dazzling silver gown which hugged tightly to her curves,her skin is the perfect description of honey,her hair was worn down,her … Eyes were so bright..it sparkled to the audience and her cheeks were held on in a smile.
She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen…more beautiful than in pictures..
Beside her is her husband…Miguel Sydney… looking at him right now made me believe he’s the most handsome man in the world.
He’s on a blue plaid shirt tucked in a pair of white jeans,with white denim jacket..he wore blue sparkling shoes making his entire body stood out.
Damm! He’s so handsome…
The Ladies were starting to cry calling onto him.
He smiled and held his wife’s hand.
I can’t believe I’m seeing fallen angels right now.
Hi everyone,it’s fallen angels! Thanks for attending our concert and we promise to give you the best” They said into the microphone..
OMG! Cool voices!
Of course the hall is filled to the brim.. everyone wants to see fallen angels.
Everyone cheered for some minutes before Fallen angels started singing their first song which i love most…”Till i met you”
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.
Turning through the countryside,
Where we first met.
You affected me so deeply,
Your piercing eyes alone accelerates my heartbeat.
Your love is driving me insane.
You are the only one for me.
Can you feel my heart beat.
There are too many memories.
Waiting to be remembered.
Look at the sky and count the stars,
That’s how uncountable my love is for you.
I can’t exchange you,even for the meteors in the sky.
I’m in love with you.
Let me stay in your heart.
Cause you are the only one for me.
No matter how it ends.
Even my life wasn’t complete till i met you….
My heart melted at their voice,and i didn’t know i was crying until Kelly passed me an handkerchief.
They sang on and on with the best voices ever..
Everyone was cheering… singing alongside with them.
They held out their hands to their fans as they sang.
Me being in the VIP..I was close enough to touch Vinnie’s hand.
“Jeez-us christ!
OMG I’m going crazy!
I just touched Vinnie’s hand!
Tell me it’s not true!
I just touched my role model’s hand!
Someone should grab me,I’m about to collapse!
Vinnie Sydney i love you” I yelled loudly among the crowd and i think i saw her wink at me.
“OMG! I need someone to hold me, Vinnie just winked at me” i said making Bryan laughed..
“You are one hell of a fan” he said and i smiled.
“Yeah i am…so as you” I said.
.
“I also touched Miguel’s hand…” He said happily.
They continued singing, holding out their hands.
I kept touching Vinnie’s and Miguel’s hand at intervals..
I’ve Never felt so happy in my life.
“Kelly are you enjoying the show?” I asked Kelly who was jumping excitedly trying to touch Miguel’s hand..
It’s obvious he is.
“Of course I’m enjoying it,I’ve never felt like this in a long time” He said and finally get to touch Miguel’s hand.
“Oh..my God” he screamed excitedly.
I smiled and cheered alongside the crowd..
They were singing in their best voice, dancing and jumping excitedly on the stage.
It’s only the VIP section that got the chance to hold their hands.
“Liam… what’s up?” I asked excitedly.
He was sweating from jumping and dancing.
“I love it here totally…I can’t believe i got to hold fallen angels hands….I feel like going home with them tonight” He said and continued singing and dancing with the crowd.
I smiled excitedly… Everyone seems to be enjoying this great concert except Ellen who stood pressing her phone with frown on her face.
She shouldn’t have come with us in the first place!
I ignored her and continued watching fallen angels as they sang on the stage.
This is a dream coming true…I’ve always dreamt of being close to Fallen angels on the stage.
They finished singing all of their songs in two hours.
Gosh! I don’t want them to leave
Even though I’ve taken more than hundred pictures.
Thanks so much everyone,for attending our concert. We really appreciate” Miguel Sydney said in a cool voice that melted all the ladies heart.
We wanna gift two of our lucky fans our most favorite treasure before we leave.
They both brought out a tiny necklace which shone brightly on the dark stage.
The necklace in Miguel’s hand has “Mig ” engraved on it..
While the necklace in Vinnie’s hand has “Vinnie
” engraved on it.
“Wow!” Everyone exclaimed..
Gosh … How i wish i could just get it!
We are gonna throw this and the two lucky fans will get to go home with it.
Everyone waited and suddenly they threw it..
Just like magic..it landed just on my sandals.
I cried in excitement as i secretly picked it up.
It’s Vinnie’s own.
I held it tightly in my hand not wanting anyone to see it cause they might hurt me for it.
Everyone was searching around for it while i smiled happily.
I saw Bryan also grinning at one side as people kept pushing him to search for it on the floor.
He caught me staring at him and winked.
I felt butterflies…
I saw him open his closed palm gently and there lay the second necklace which is Mig’s own.
I held myself from screaming out loud in happiness.
I can’t believe the both of us got Fallen angels favorite treasure.
We’ve been their fans for so long and i guess this is the reward.
I also opened my palm slowly and he saw it.
His eyes widened and he rushed to hug me .
I was surprised.
“I was wishing for the both of us to get the necklace and my wish was granted” he whispered to me.
“You don’t know how glad i am, that we are two lucky fans* I said excitedly.
“Shush…let’s not act like we were the ones who got the necklace,they might hurt us for it…we will celebrate this later” He said and i nodded.
We joined the rest in searching for the necklace and i couldn’t hold myself from laughing, seeing how serious a lot of people were on finding those two necklace..
Everyone resigned to their fate after searching without finding it..they all knew someone would have taken it.
Fallen angels were still standing on the stage,i thought they would have sneaked back into the back stage like other celebrities do but No! they remained there.
Congratulations to the lucky fans,others should not feel bad..just know we love you all” They said and everyone cheered loudly.
“We want to see your daughter” Someone suddenly said among the crowd.
Soon everyone started shouting “We want to see your daughter”
They smiled and signalled to someone to bring their daughter up to the stage.
A lady brought up their daughter and everyone exclaimed.
I froze as i stared at the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.
She’s putting on a bright pink princess gown, white little shoes and a beautiful magic wand.
Her golden hair shimmered brightly and her green eyes were just like emeralds.
Her chocolate chubby skin sparkled and she suddenly smiled.
Everyone roared,i was among the ones crying.
This little girl is the perfect description of an angel.
Anyone would kill to have this girl as a child.
Her pictures on social media is not as beautiful as this.
How could someone child be this beautiful to the extent of making a lot of people cry.
Everyone started another round of picture shot but this time, they were only snapping the little girl who clung to her mother’s leg waving her little magic wand.
I also brought out my phone and started taking pictures,i can’t miss this opportunity.
Thanks everyone for tonight…we appreciate your coming” Vinnie said in her angel like voice.
Thank you all…we will always love you” They bowed.. picked up their daughter, who giggled happily..
Then started walking out of the stage.
There was an uproar,cheers,screams,cries and a lot more as they left.
This is the best concert I’ve ever attended…not that I’ve attended one anyways.
The cheers didn’t stop,even when they were out of the stage completely.
Liam signalled for us to leave…
We passed through the crowds who were still cheering.
I smiled happily..I can’t believe i have something of the Fallen angels.
We all got outside and i was surprised at how dark it is.
I quickly checked the time on my phone.
“10pm!” I exclaimed as we walked to our car.
“Yeah” Liam said.
“Everyone get in the car,let me drop you at your homes” Liam said.
He doesn’t like driving and i was surprised when he offered to drive today.
“I will staying at your place tonight” Bryan said.
“Okay..Kelly and Ellen, would you also stay at our place tonight?” Liam asked.
“Yeah” Kelly said happily.
What’s he happy about?
“Ellen?” Liam asked again.
“I will stay” She said and i know we both will be sleeping together in my room tonight.
I smiled..
“Okay everyone get into the car” Liam said and we all hopped in.
He turned on the ignition and started driving home.
**
“I wonder who the two lucky fans are” Liam said as he drove into a street second to ours.
Bryan and i grinned and shouted “We are the two lucky fans!”
“What!” Everyone exclaimed and we laughed.
Liam quickly parked.
“You don’t believe us right?…Mara let’s show them” Bryan said and we both brought out the necklaces surprising the hell out of them.
Their mouths widened making Bryan and i laughed.
“And you both didn’t say anything at the hall” Liam said.
“We couldn’t say anything cause everyone desperately want this necklace and they might hurt us for it” Bryan said.
“Yeah that’s so wise of you…I’m so glad!” Liam said happily.
“Me too…Bryan and i is gonna be sharing that necklace” Kelly said happily.
“Of course buddy” Bryan said.
I looked at Ellen who didn’t say anything since…
“I can’t believe my siblings got the two necklaces…this calls for celebration” Liam said excitedly.
“Yesssss” We chorused happily except Ellen of course.
We all sat round the dining table eating the late dinner mum prepared for us,we didn’t even go to our room to freshen up,we just pulled off our shoes and started eating….
Mum has gone to her room to sleep after listening to our unending gist.
“Delicious” Bryan said with a mouthful.
“Yeah” Kelly said…he seems so happy to be here tonight,he called his parents earlier to tell them he’s not coming home.
We chatted and laughed as we ate dinner.
Bryan and i are already putting on our necklace and it looks so nice, making us look like a couple.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 2:02pm On Nov 11, 2019
I grinned happily..
We finished dinner, Kelly and i packed the dishes to the kitchen and started washing while Bryan and Ellen cleaned up the table.
I noticed Kelly kept grinning…
What’s wrong with this one?
We were done washing the dishes,we wiped our hands and went to join the others at the living room.
Bryan yawned…
“Bryan and Kelly,come with me to the guest room” Liam said.
“Good night” They chorused and climbed up the stairs.
I looked at Ellen…”Let’s go to my room”
She shrugged and we both climbed the stairs to my room.
We entered and i closed the door behind us.
“There’s a towel and pajamas in the bathroom closet if you wanna freshen up” I said to Ellen.
She dropped her phone on the bed and walked into the bathroom…this isn’t the first time she’s having a sleepover here..just that she was a nice Ellen then.
I sighed and sat on the dressing chair.
I used a wiper to wipe off my make up,then packed my hair in a ponytail.
I pulled off my gown and reached for my towel..I wrapped it round my body and smiled when i saw my new necklace.
I unhooked it and stared at it admiringly for a while before dropping it in a little case,then inside the drawer..
Just then, Ellen walked out of the bathroom,freshened up in favourite pajamas she always wore anytime she’s having a sleepover here.
She sat on the bed and picked her phone.
I walked into the bathroom to also freshen up.
I finished freshening up and pulled into my pink pajamas..
I felt so comfortable as i strolled back to my room.
Ellen is already laying on one part of the bed,still engrossed in her phone.
I sat on the bed for a while before laying beside her.
She dropped her phone and drew the blanket closer to her and i know she’s about to sleep.
I cleared my throat…”Ellen”
She didn’t answer till i called her for the third time.
“Huh?” She asked facing me.
“Did i offend you?” I asked.
“What made you think so?” She asked.
“Ellen,you’ve not been acting nice to me even after dating Bryan whom you know i love” I said.
“Bryan is not meant for just you okay?” She said.
“Okay…let’s forget that,but you’ve not been acting nice to me and im not happy about it”
“What exactly do you want?” She asked.
“Ellen, you were not like this before..what went wrong?” I asked.
“Nothing went wrong okay!” She half yelled.
“Okay..but please i want us to go back to how we were,i want you to go back to being my best friend” I said.
She smiled…”I’m gonna do that but on one condition” She said.
“What condition?” I asked eagerly, feeling glad I’m gonna get my friend back.
“You have to give me that necklace” She said.
“Necklace? Okay come search through my jewelry box and choose the necklace you want” I said.
“I want that Fallen angels necklace”
“What!”

Mara’s POV
“I want you to give me that fallen angels necklace”
“What!” I exclaimed..
“Yeah” she said.
I laughed…”I’m sorry,i think we will have to forget about being friends anymore” I said and saw her face widen with surprise.
“I thought you said you want my friendship back!” She said.
” I do! But do you know how much that necklace means to me? That’s the only thing Bryan and i have together!” I said and shifted up from the bed.
“You mean you still haven’t let go of your feelings for Bryan?” She asked.
“Of course i haven’t! Why should i? You know how much i love Bryan” I said.
“I think you better let go of your feelings cause Bryan doesn’t love you in that aspect!” She said.
“I don’t care if he doesn’t love me..all i know is that i love him and won’t ever love anyone else,my heart is only for Bryan” I said.
“Your heart is for him but his is not for you…let go of this stupid feelings and move on!” She said.
“You are saying that because you are in a relationship with Bryan right?.. anyways i don’t care! I love Bryan and that’s final!” I said shifting a pillow closer to my head.
“I hope you realise he doesnt love you as you think before it’s too late” She said.
“Thanks for your advice but I’m not giving you that necklace” I said.
“No problem with that .. not that am a fan of fallen angels,i just want Bryan and i to wear it cause it’s so obvious it’s for couple” she said.
“So….will you continue being my friend?” I asked hopefully.
“I don’t want to be your friend anymore, please just get that! Don’t disturb me about this again…good night!” She said and turned to the other side .
I sighed softly as i wondered what’s going on in her mind.
She seems serious tonight and i guess she’s having some thinking.
Is she probably thinking to leave Bryan for me?
That would be so nice! But impossible.
I drew the blanket closer and rested my head comfortably on the pillow.
I yawned and closed my eyes and that was the end of the day.
NEXT MORNING
I opened my eyes slowly as i heard some movements in the room.
My eyes got clearer when i saw Ellen sitting on my dressing chair.
She’s already dressed up in her yesterday’s outfit, brushing her hair and then packed it in a ponytail.
I sat up from the bed and yawned.
“Good morning Ellen” I said.
“Yeah..it’s a good morning for you but a bad one for me.. Kelly and Bryan have both came to check if you are awake” she said.
“Oh..you mean Bryan came?” I smiled.
“And Kelly also but Kelly came first…I don’t know why I’m talking to you!” She suddenly yelled and stood up.
She hissed and picked up her shoulder bag before storming out of my room.
What’s making her so pissed?
I stood up from the bed and arranged the pillow.
I will be back to make this bed,i need to go bath and dress to see Bryan before he leaves.
I walked into the bathroom and opened the closet,i picked my toothbrush and paste and headed to the sink and started brushing hurriedly.
I was done bathing…I turned off the faucet and picked a towel from the rail.
I wrapped it round my body and headed back to my room.
I was surprised when i saw how the bed is well spread.

Did Ellen walked back to do this? No!
Bryan? I think so..
I smiled as i opened my wardrobe,i selected a yellow sweatshirt with white pants.
I dried my body and applied lotion before putting on my undies,then my clothes.
I stood in front of the mirror as i brushed my hair and applied just little lotion.
I picked my necklace from the drawer and wore it round my neck..I beamed approvingly..
I’m just so lucky!
I quickly made my pontsplait style and then slipped my feet into my bunny slippers.
I rushed out of the room and headed down the stairs, praying they haven’t left.
I smiled happily when i saw them at the living room watching a kdrama with Liam…
“Good morning guys” I said.
“Good morning Tammy,how was your night?” Kelly asked.
“Fine ” I said..he was putting on his yesterday’s outfit.
“Hey bestie,how are you?” Bryan asked.
“I’m fine” I smiled.
“Did you made the bed?” I asked with a smile..
My smile faded when he shook his head and pointed to Kelly..
“Huh… thanks Kelly” I said disappointedly.
“Why are you both still in your yesterday’s outfit? You should have asked Liam to give you a change of clothe” I said.
“We were about leaving,we were waiting for you to come down” Bryan.
“Why are you leaving so soon?” I asked.
“I wanted to stay till afternoon but my mom called me that Dad is leaving for the airport 10am and we have to see him off” Bryan said.
“Okay then…” I said.
Damn! I’m gonna be so bored.
“I can stay longer if you want” Kelly said.
I smiled…”No Kelly, don’t bother”
“Are you sure?” He asked..
“Yeah”
“Okay help me say hi to mum,she isn’t awake yet and i don’t want to disturb her” Bryan said and stood up.
Ellen followed suit,then Kelly who i noticed was reluctant to stand up.
“I’ve told Max to drop you guys…it was fun having you all around yesterday” Liam said.
“Yeah a lot of fun” we chorused..
“Hmm…and i can see the two lucky fans are wearing their necklace” Liam teased.
We chuckled as i stared at the necklace on Bryan’s neck,i stared at mine also which brought a grin to my face.
“Bye Liam” they chorused.
“Bye”
I saw them off to the car and bid them bye before returning to the house.
I walked into the living room and sat on the couch beside Liam.
I dragged his hair playfully and chuckled.
“I’m gonna loosen your pontsplait” he threatened and started moving his hand to my hair.
I slapped the threatening hand away and he gave out an “Ow!”
I laughed…”Don’t mess with me”
He chuckled “you’ve changed just within few weeks”
“Really?”
“Yeah you’ve grown more beautiful” he said.
“You better don’t waste time in taking me as your girlfriend” I said jokingly.
“I would gladly do so but i dare not!” He said and we both laughed.
“Do you know i had to switch off my phone” he said.
“Why?”
“I don’t know how i ended up giving a lot of people my contact yesterday” he said tiredly.
“A lot of people or a lot of girls?” I teased.
“Whatever” he said.
“You shouldn’t have given them your contacts” I said.
“I tried not to but you know the attention i do get” he said with pride.
I laughed…”the attention you get can’t be compared to Mig’s, didn’t you see how the girls were screaming for him even after seeing his wife beside him”
“You can’t compare me to him! I still get the attention most of the celebrities hope to get except Migvin of course and do you know what?” He asked.
“What?” I asked.
“They were all set of ugly girls” he said and i laughed loudly.
“Liam that’s unfair…those girls i saw yesterday are beautiful,they might be ugly to you though cause your taste is always…”
“What?” He asked.
“Nothing” I grinned.
“I feel like smacking this remote control on your head” he said.
“Go ahead bro and get double in return” I said and we laughed.
“Okay,I’m thinking of something” he said.
“What?” He asked.
“Do you saw that lady that brought Migvin’s daughter to the stage?” He asked.
“Uhm..no,i didn’t. I only concentrated on that beautiful girl” I said.
“Okay…she’s so beautiful and perfectly shaped,i took her pictures…where did i kept my phone” He said and began searching the couch.
I sighed…”So what about her?” I asked, already knowing what he’s about to say.
“Hmm…I like her” he said making me laugh.
“You like her?” I asked.
“Yeah,i do” he said.
“Do you like her or her body?” I asked and he sent me a glare making me chuckle.
“Of course i like her,so much..I heard she’s a distant cousin of Vinnie and you know i always told you i want to marry someone from fallen angels family” he said seriously.
“Wow! So you were serious about it?”
“Yeah i was and i am still serious about it…I like that girl a lot” he said.
“So what are you gonna do?” I asked.
“I’m gonna go back to the venue of the concert” he said.
“To do what? They would have left there and lodged in an hotel” I said.
“Yeah…I know,I’m gonna ask around for the hotel they lodged” he said.
“They won’t tell you cause such things are usually sealed! They would have been warned not to disclose the hotel because of security reasons so how would you do that?” I asked.
He laughed…”I’m just gonna sweet-talk one of the girls then and boom! She’s gonna disclose the hotel to me”
“Okay…let’s assume you get to the hotel,do you think they will allow you in? Or are you gonna sweet-talk the secretary also?” I asked.
“Hmm…no but i have my plans” he winked.
“I just hope those girls you keep promising marriage proposal doesn’t come to hurt you” I said.
“No! I’ve not promised anyone marriage proposal,i always tell them I’m not in for love and they use to agree to it…they just wanna spend some time with this cute guy” He said proudly beating his chest.
I laughed…”so you are gonna break up with everyone of them once you get this girl?”
“Yes of course… I’ve made it clear to everyone of them that I’m not interested in those lovey dovey stuff” He said.
“If you finally get this new girl and you try to break her heart,i hope you know you will be locked up?” I asked.
“I’m not gonna break her heart,i like her so much” he said with an expression I’ve never seen before.
“Let me take a look at her pics” I said.
He picked his phone…”if i turn on this phone,calls will flow in”
“You quickly apply airplane mode” I said.
“Oh… that’s true,I’ve totally forgotten about that” he said and powered his phone.
“You had eyes for the girl and still ended up giving other girls your contact” I said.
“That was before i saw her” he said.
“That’s a lie..I saw you give some girls your contact after the girl left the stage” I said.
“Huh?..mm.. yeah” he said.
He unlocked the phone and before he could place it on airplane mode,two calls came in.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 2:04pm On Nov 11, 2019
I laughed..
He hissed and disconnected the call.
He quickly swiped up about to click on airplane mode when another call interrupted him.
I laughed again…he glared at me before turning back to his phone.
He succeeded in placing it on airplane mode and sighed.
“I’m not showing you the pics anymore” he said.
“Why?” I asked.
“You should explain the reason you were laughing” he said.
“Com’on i wasn’t laughing at you,i was laughing at something else” I said and tried to hold this stupid laughter but it bursted out.
Liam stood up angrily but i know it was fake.
I dragged him back to the couch.
“I won’t laugh anymore” I said with a serious face even though i still felt like laughing.
He unlocked his phone and scrolled through the apps,he clicked on the gallery app and pictures flowed in.
He smiled and clicked on a particular picture and it came into full view.
“Wow!” I exclaimed staring at the lady.
So beautiful…how didn’t i notice her?
“She’s so young and beautiful” I said.
“Yeah she is” Liam smiled.
“Her face also looks cool and friendly” I said.
Liam’s grin did not stop and i decided to tease him.
“What if she has a boyfriend?” I asked.
His face changed immediately…
“Boyfriend? I never thought of that” he said sadly.
“So what will you do?” I asked.
“That’s the first thing i will make sure i find out” He said and i noticed his mood has changed.
“Com’on Liam…cheer up! Quickly find a way to meet her,cause they might be going back to Mexico soon” I said.
“Yeah…I’m gonna go after having my breakfast” He said.
“Okay..” I sighed and looked at the picture once more before sitting up.
She’s so beautiful…
“Won’t you go make breakfast?” He asked.
“No i won’t” I said and smiled inwardly.
“Why?” He asked.
“I don’t feel like having breakfast yet” I said.
“What of me?” He asked.
“Go make yours yourself” I said.
“That’s unfair..you know I’m leaving after eating breakfast… please” he pleaded..
“Okay..then you will help me get pizza and ice cream on your
back” I said.
“I can help you order it now” he said.
“No i want it when you are coming back”
“Okay…I want cheese and ham for breakfast,add coffee too” He said.
“You should add ‘please’ ” i said.
“Won’t i get pizza and ice cream for you” he said.
“Okay forget your breakfast then” I said and sat more comfortably.
We were silent for some minutes before he finally muttered “Please”
I smiled and stood up..
“Your breakfast will be ready in few minutes” I said.
“Whatever… you’ve gotten the ‘Please’ you want” He scoffed.
I laughed and walked into the kitchen,i picked my apron and cap then washed and rinsed my hands in the sink before i started making breakfast.
I dished out Liam’s breakfast on the dining table.
I’m not ready to eat mine now.
“Liam breakfast is ready” I said.
“Okay, coming” he said.
I walked back to the kitchen and washed the stained utensils.
I rinsed them,dried and placed it in it’s place.
I dried my hand with a clean dishcloth, hanged my towel and cap back in it’s place before walking out of the kitchen.
I met Liam at the dinning already eating.
“Hey,i will be in the living room” I said.
“Okay” he replied with a mouthful..
I smirked and walked to the living room.
I breathed out and jumped on the couch.
I hissed when i saw a kdrama playing.
I stood up and removed it from the DVD player then inserted an American movie “Bird box”
I sat down back on the couch and played the movie.
It came into life and i started watching.
Some minutes later
“Mara is this outfit okay?” Liam asked.
I turned and saw he has already changed into a blue peacoat over a black sweatshirt with blue polyster pants.
His hair is brushed backwards and he looked naturally handsome.
“Wow,you are looking good” I said.
“I know,so i will be leaving now..just tell mum i went to see some friends” he said.
“Okay, don’t stay long and don’t also forget my pizza” I said.
“I won’t…bye” he said.
“Bye”
I smiled as i watched him walk out of the house.
I hope he sees the girl he’s looking for.
I laid upwards on the couch and placed a throw pillow on my chest..
I continued watching the movie.
*
I inhaled a familiar scent of perfume.
Is mum already dressed for work?
I turned back and saw mum standing by the stairs and truly,she’s already dressed for work looking as beautiful as ever.
“Good morning Mum” i greeted.
“Morning Mara,how was your night?” She asked.
“Fine Mum” I smiled already walking to her.
“Your friends left already?” She asked.
“Yes Mum”
“Even Bryan?” She asked.
“Yeah…he has to see his dad off to the airport” i said.
“Oh… okay, where’s Liam?” she asked.
“He went to see some friends…I made breakfast” I said and took her hand, dragging her to the dining.
“Really? What did you made for breakfast?” She asked.
“Cheese and ham” I said.
“Okay… dish out mine,I will be leaving for work soon” she said.
“Alright Mum” I said and walked into the kitchen.
I brought out the leftover cheese and ham from the refrigerator and turn on the microwave.
I slipped it into the microwave and closed it back.
I stood beside it and hummed, waiting for the timer to go off.
It did and i switched it off..I used a dish cloth to bring it out of the microwave.
It was steaming into my nose as i carried it to the dining.
I placed it on the dining table and unleased the plates.
I quickly dished out mum’s and placed it in her front.
“Thanks Mara” she said and started eating.
I smiled and dished out mine,then started eating also.
“Mum don’t you wanna hear the remaining gists about yesterday’s concert?” I asked.
“Oh…I do, tell me” She said.
I grinned…if it was about something else mum would have said ‘Table manners’ but who does not like fallen angels.
“Okay…” I started.
**
“Bye Mum” I said as i saw her off to the living room.
“Do you have enough money to sustain you?” She asked.
“Yeah Mum” I said and pecked her cheeks.
She opened the door and waved at me before finally stepping out.
I closed the door and headed back to the kitchen to do the dishes..
I was done with the dishes within few minutes,i placed it on the drain board.
I wiped my hand with the dish cloth,then opened the refrigerator,i saw some cookies and strawberry cupcakes.
I picked a plate and placed four cookies and a cupcake in it.
I carried a pack of chilled juice before closing the refrigerator.
I picked a glass cup and then placed everything on a tray.
I carried it to the living room,placed it on the table,sat down and continued patience the movie which i guess will soon be over.
*
I was on the last cookie when i heard the doorbell rang.
Is that James?..No!
Bryan? Bryan doesn’t ring the doorbell and it’s too early for Liam to return.
I stood up and walked to the door.
I breathed in before opening it and i was surprised to see Laura standing by the door.
She looks totally beautiful in her house wear,pink skinny jeans and white tank top,black sandals and a small black backpack.
Her hair is still in pontsplait and her blue eyes stood out.
“Hi Mara” She said gently.
“Hi…come in” I smiled, seeing her here softened my mind against her.
She seems surprised that i asked her to come in so easily but she walked in and i closed the door behind us.
“Wow…you have a very nice house” She said.
“Thanks…come sit” I said and led her to one of the couches..
We both sat down on different couches.
“What do you care for?” I asked.
“I’m okay for now but I’m sure gonna eat before leaving, Bryan told me you are a very good cook” She said.
“Yeah” I sighed.
She smiled and started opening her backpack.
“How did you know my house,i don’t remember giving you my address?” I asked curiously.
“I told Bryan to give me…I’m sorry i didn’t tell you directly,i felt you might not want to…” She smiled.
“What made you think,i don’t want to?” I asked.
“Mara…to be sincere,i know you don’t really like me” she said surprising me to the core.
“You know i don’t like you?” I asked.
“Yeah i do”
“Then why do you keep coming closer to me?” I asked.
“Because i would love you to be my friend,i like you so much and I’ve always wanted to be your friend since when you were still called fatty Mara but i didn’t have the courage to come up to you then” She said.
“Really? Like seriously?” I asked in surprise.
“Yeah,but it hurts to know that i finally got the chance and you don’t like me, please I’m sorry. I might have offended you unknowingly..just forgive me and let’s be friends” She said.
“You want me to be friends with someone i don’t like?” I asked even though i like her,i just don’t like how she relates with Bryan.
“You mean,you still don’t like me?” She asked in a trembling voice.
Wait! Is she about to cry?
“I think so…I don’t have to like you,we don’t have to be friends..we can just say “hi” at a distance” I said.
I was surprised when i saw her blue eyes shone with unshed tears.
She suddenly bursted out crying making me feel bad immediately..
Damn! Mara when did you become this mean!
I have nothing against her,I’m only jealous about how she relates with Bryan..
She can’t date Bryan,not when Ellen is still on seat so why the hell am i being mean to this poor girl!
I need a spanking..
I stood up walked to her couch..
I sat beside her and she was seriously crying like she lost someone.
I can’t believe i made someone cry this way.
“Com’on Laura…I don’t mean all I’ve said! I will gladly be your friend” I said obviously to her surprise.
She sniffed…”You mean,you will be my friend?”
I nodded “Yes Laura…I didn’t mean all I said earlier,i was just being…I like you and everyone and i will be your friend okay?” I smiled.
“Thank you” She screamed and hugged me excitedly.
Like seriously?
I hugged her back and i was surprised at how glad i also felt.
We disengaged from the hug…I cleaned her tears and smiled.
“Crying doesn’t suit you but you are just as emotional as i” I said.
“Really?” She smiled.
“Yeah…I cry at every little thing” I said.
“Me too” She grinned..
“I’m so happy you are finally my friend” She said.
“Does it means so much to you?” I asked.
“Yeah it does,you don’t how long I’ve wanted to be your friend” She said happily.
“Wow! I’m so glad someone was yearning to be my friend for so long….now let me go get another glass cup,let’s toast to our friendship” I said.
“Yaaaaay” She cheered happily..
Funny girl…I smiled and stood up.
“Should i come with you?” She asked.
“No…I just want to get a glass cup and probably some cookies.. you’re definitely gonna come with me when i want to cook” I said.
“Wow…I’m gonna learn from you then,cause I’m a very bad cook” She said.
I laughed…”Really?”
“Yeah…I almost burnt down the whole house while making omelette” She said and we both bursted out laughing.
“That’s so serious” I said when the laughter subsided.
“Yeah..it was” She said.
I walked to the kitchen and picked a glass cup and also the remaining cookies in the refrigerator.
I walked back to the living room grinning hard.
Why am i so excited?
I didn’t even grin this hard when i was friends with Ellen.
Well…I’m still friends with her but isn’t friends with me .
I gat Laura now,i don’t have to think so much about her again.
I got to the living room and saw Laura drinking from my glass cup.
I placed the cookies and glass cup on the table.
“Laura that’s my glass cup” i said.
“Yeah i know… aren’t we friends now?” She grinned surprising me once more.
Ellen has never drank from my glass cup,she would insist i bring another cup for her but this girl here is making me feel so important.
“Wow…I’m surprised” I said and poured some juice into the glass cup.
“So let’s toast to our new friendship,i hope to be friends with you forever” She said and we both clicked our cups together.
We gulped down the juice and laughed.
She picked a cookie and threw it in her mouth, munching it softly.
“Wow…did you make this?” She asked.
“No..my mum did,she’s very good at making snacks” I said proudly.
“Wow…it tastes so nice” She said.
“Thanks” i said and also picked a cookie.
“Don’t say thanks to me, remember we are now friends” She said.
“Wow! Laura,you keep surprising me” I said.
“Really?…well,my own side of friendship is different” She said.
“Okay…so what’s your own side of friendship?” I asked.
” I feel once you are close friends with someone,you drop every formality,act like siblings,drink and eat from the same cup and dish,be free with each other and so many other things and that’s the definition of friendship cause saying ‘thanks’means we are not friends yet…I know there are some times when the thanks will be necessary but let’s just drop it for now” She said.
“Wow” I was moved to hug her and i did.
She hugged me back with her face full of excitement.
“I’m so glad you are opening me to another side of friendship which i guess it’s the best part” i smiled.
“I’m glad to be your friend… finally” she beamed and threw another cookie in her mouth.
“I’m gonna finish the cookies if you don’t start eating yours” She said.
I laughed….” Go ahead,I’ve already eaten much before you ca…” I’ve not finished talking when she grabbed the plate of cookies closer to her.
I laughed and poured some juice in my cup.
I gulped down half of it and sighed.
“I bought some US drama for you” she said.
“Really?” I asked.
“Yeah” She opened her backpack and brought out a lot of US drama.
“Wooo” I shouted happily and danced round the table before dragging it from her.
She laughed…”I didn’t know you were so crazy about US drama,i would have bought more… Mum is planning to thrash a lot of them” Laura said.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“You have to help me bring everything” I said.
“Yeah i will” she said.
I checked out the films and they all looked interesting,i couldn’t decide the one to watch first.
I felt like watching everything together.
“Watch that one first..it’s so funny and interesting” Laura said and pointed to the first one I’m holding.
I stood up and removed the movie i was watching earlier.
I inserted the one Laura recommended for me.
I sat down and played it,we started watching..
**
“Look at that one” I said pointing to the movie we were watching and we bursted into another round of laughter.
My cheeks were starting to ache from laughter,I’ve been laughing since the beginning of the movie and thank goodness it’s almost finished.
Laura’s laughter was worst,she had to held on to her stomach to laugh and that made me laugh more.
“Oh..my.. God” I said and we bursted out laughing again..
*
“Thank goodness it’s finished” i said as we finished another round of laughter.
“Damn! You didn’t tell me it was that funny,now my cheeks ache” I said rubbing my palm over my cheeks..
“I’m happy i made you laugh” She said and we both poured some juice in our glass cups then gulped it down.
“I feel so good” i said.
“Me too but I’m starting to starve” She said.
I glanced at the wall clock.
2 o’clock.
“Let’s go make Lunch” I said and we both stood up.
We walked to the kitchen.
“Let’s make casserole” I said and threw an apron and cap to her.
She caught it.
“You mean,you can make that?” She asked surprisingly.
“Of course” i said.
“Wow..I can’t wait to learn” She said pulling on her apron.
“I will be glad to help” I said and fixed my chef cap.
Laura was also done wearing her cap.
“So we are gonna wash our hands first” I said and we both walked to the sink…
We washed our hands and dried it with the dish cloth.
Laura’s was booming with happiness and i felt so glad myself.
“So firstly,the ingredient for casserole dish are;….
…..
“It’s almost ready…I can’t believe ive learnt how to make casserole,mum is gonna be so surprised” Laura said happily.
“Yeah… let’s quickly wash this utensils, the casserole would have been completely ready by then” i said.
“Okay” Laura said and packed the utensils to the sink.
“I’m gonna wash,then you will rinse in the second sink” She said.
I nodded and she started washing,passing it to me..
I rinsed and placed it in the drain board.
We kept passing and passing till we finished the washing.
I quickly dried my hand and went to check on the meal…
“It’s ready” i said and put off the gas cooker.
“Okay…I will bring out the plates and spoons” She said and opened the drawer.
I smiled at her while she picked out two plates and spoons.
I’ve liked her so much,just within the few hours we spent together.
She dropped the plates and spoons on the kitchen counter and i started dishing out the casserole.
The door bell rang…
“Who could be there?” I asked.
“Continue dishing out the meal,let me go check it” She said and quickly hurried to the door.
“Bryan” I heard.
But he doesn’t ring the bell.
The scent of his perfume got stronger and my heart started beating over the normal rate,then i know he’s so close to the kitchen.
I smiled when he strolled into the kitchen with Laura.
“Hey Mara” he waved.
“Hi Bryan…why did you ring the bell?” I asked.
“I thought you were sitting lazily at the living room so i wanted you to get up and come open the door for me” he said.
I laughed…”You are so lucky there is stick around”
He chuckled…”Isn’t that casserole?” He asked grinning.
“Yeah but you are not gonna get from it” I joked.
“You must be joking” he said.
I laughed…”what if I’m not?”
“Then i will have no choice but to take everything with me” he said.
“Then i will also have no choice but to hit your head with a wooden spoon or stick till you faint” I said and we all laughed.
“I love this” Laura said happily eating her casserole.
“Me too…so delicious” Bryan said.
We were almost done eating when we heard a phone ringing in the living room..
It’s Bryan’s..
“Ow! I dropped my iPod in the living room before coming into the kitchen,i will be back guys” He said and hurried to the living room.
Laura and i kept chatting while eating..
*
I noticed Bryan was taking too long..
“Didn’t you observe Bryan is taking long?” I asked Laura who nodded.
“Yeah…let’s check on him” She said.
We walked to the living room and saw him seated on the couch..
He was backing us but i noticed how his shoulders dropped.
“Bryan” I called and he turned..
I was shocked to see tears rolling down his cheeks.
“What’s wrong?” We rushed to him worriedly.
“Kelly has been stabbed” He cried.
What!!

Bryan’s POV
“I can’t believe the both of you fought to the extent of getting your only son stabbed!” Mara yelled at Kelly’s parents who was pacing to and fro in the hospital reception.
Kelly is already been attended to.
Thankfully,the doctor said the stab is not very deep.
“Seriously!you both needs to be be sued” Laura also said.
I stood resting on a pole watching Mara and Laura yell at Kelly’s parents who didn’t seem to mind them.
“This is what Kelly has been hiding! Do you how much scars you’ve given him! Do you know how hurt he is,do you how much pain you’ve made him went through…are you even sure he’s your son! Cause no reasonable parents should hurt their only child” Mara said angrily running her hand through her hair.
She has loosened her pontsplait while we were rushing to the hospital.
I noticed Kelly’s mum has started weeping,his dad looks sorry.
He has beautiful parents but they are animals in human clothings..
I’m waiting for Kelly to get well enough before ordering their arrest.
I will make sure they spend some days locked up.
“I’m so pissed right now,you just added another terrible scar to his chest…I swear down I’m gonna get you both sued” Laura threatened.
She and Mara paced to and fro in rage.
I smiled at how beautiful she looks even when annoyed.
“Bryan won’t you say something?” Mara asked.
“I don’t have to say anything,I’m only waiting for Kelly to be well enough before ordering their arrest” I said.
“Good!” She exclaimed.
Mara hates coming to hospital and Kelly is so lucky she came here for him.. that shows how much she cares and that’s gonna make it easier.
Go Kelly! You already have your girl..
The doctor walked back into the reception.
“How’s he?” We all rushed to him.
“Calm down…he’s fine, we’ve treated his wound and as i said earlier…it’s not deep so we only stitched it and placed him on drip but no one is allowed to see him until he’s awake and that would be by night or probably tomorrow cause he’s so weak now due to blood he lost” The doctor said.
“Haaaa!” I sighed and everyone looked on.
The doctor walked away.
“Ohh…my son” His mum cried.
We sat on the chairs waiting hopefully.

Liam’s POV
I can’t believe I’m sitting in front of this damsel.
It was so much stress before i finally get to see her.
All thanks to my good looks.
We were seating outside a bar in the hotel,there is a large swimming pool beside us and I’m so much enjoying the fresh air.
There were barely people around.
This hotel is a very costly hotel and a lot of people can’t afford it,only celebrities and wealthy people can pay the price without feeling a huge loss.
“I was told you were asking of me” She said in the most angel like voice I’ve ever heard.
She’s looking more beautiful today, wearing an armless jumpsuit which has a low neckline exposing the swell of those fresh boobs.
Sitting before her is giving me a funny feeling deep in my chest..my heart! to be precise.
“Hm..y.. yeah” I’ve never been speechless before a lady and i wonder what the hell is happening right now and she seems not to be affected by my looks.
“Hmm…I’m Liam” I smiled.
“Hi Liam” she said and sipped her drink..
“I was at your cousin’s concert yesterday” i said.
“And so?” She asked.
“Mind if i know your name?” I asked.
“Reiya” She said.
“Nice name” i smiled.
“I know it’s nice” She said.
“Okay…I saw you bring up fallen angel’s daughter up to the stage and..and i liked you” I said.
She smiled…”Thanks for liking me”
What! Who the hell says that?
Other girls would have jumped at me but she just sat still with a stoic look.
Damn! What am i gonna say next?
I was never good in asking ladies out,they ask me out theirselves and here is the repercussion.
Good for me!
“So…can i take you out tomorrow?” I asked.
“Are you asking me out?” She asked.
“Yes” i said.
“What makes you think we will still be here tomorrow?” She asked and tucked her hair behind her ears.
“A..are you leaving tonight?” I asked.
“No! But first thing tomorrow morning” She said.
I nearly cried but i just had to hold myself.
“To Mexico right?” I asked.
“Yeah…you’ve not said what you came here for. I have to leave soon” She said and i saw a little fear in her eyes.
“I don’t know how to say this but i think i have feelings for you” I said.
She laughed…”you think? Or you do?”
“Okay i do…I’ve been restless since i saw you yesterday…I would really like it if we get a thing going” I said.
“You think it’s that easy?” She asked.
“I will do anything, please just accept my feelings” I said.
She stood up and sighed,shifted back the chair and started walking away.
Damn!
This is so crazy!
No one has ever walked out on me!
I held myself from banging the plastic table.
I looked up and smiled when i saw a card on the table.
I said it!
No lady can ever walk out on me.
She was probably shy to tell me how she feels too.
I grinned and picked up the card,my grin faded when i saw;
“IM NOT INTERESTED!”
Damm! Damn! Damn!
This time i couldn’t resist the anger the bang the table.
I banged it so hard in anger.
How did she Write this just now?
Wait! Does she have a lot of this in that purse?
I heard a loud splash in the pool and turned to see REIYA helpless in the pool.
It’s so obvious she doesn’t know how to swim,as she kept battling and struggling to come out.
And who the hell swims in a thick jumpsuit?
Damn!
I flung my chair and ran towards the pool.
I jumped in and quickly swim to her direction.
Why the hell is this pool so large!
I succeeded in getting hold of her,i carried her and quickly placed her on the edge of the pool.
She coughed out water and her eyes has reddened.
I stepped out of the pool dripping wet.
“Reiya are you okay?” I asked worriedly as i wondered whether to press her chest or not.
If i do,i might end up doing something naughty.
She pointed to my back and i traced her finger,then saw a guy
standing at the other edge of the pool wearing an unfriendly look.
I remembered i saw him before jumping into the pool, everything came back rushing in.
“You mean this guy pushed you into the pool?” I asked.
She nodded.
I stood up angrily and marched towards him.
He was bigger than me in size and height,i should be afraid but not when Reiya is involved.
“Why the hell did you push her into the pool? Just tell me it’s a mistake and I’m gonna spare you” I said surprising myself.
How can i say I’m gonna spare this huge guy…he should be the one saying he’s gonna spare me.
He laughed…
“Reiya!” He yelled and i saw Reiya was already sitting up.
“You dare cheat on me with this little sonofabitch!” He thundered and the last thing i remembered was receiving a thunderous slap before falling into the pool.
The slap blinded me and i was unable to swim.
I held my breath in the pool kicking my legs.
“Dan! Why are you so cruel!” I heard reiya yelled.
My vision was starting to get clearer and i quickly managed to swim out of the pool.
I landed on the edge of the pool breathing heavily.
I wiped the drops of water on my face and sat up, expecting to find Reiya but i didn’t.
She’s gone! She’s freaking gone with that monster who claimed to be her boyfriend!
Was that the reason she didn’t accept my proposal?
Was that the reason i saw that fear in her eyes.
How could she be dating that monster..he’s so ugly and;
Ugh!!
I can’t believe i got slapped over a girl,not just a slap but a thunderous one which sent me flying into the pool.
That monster’s hand is just like steel.
I rubbed the affected cheek and stood up.
I’m soaking wet!
Thank goodness i brought my car.
I walked sadly to the parking lot knowing that’s the last time I’m gonna see reiya.
They are flying to Mexico first thing tomorrow morning and she has a boyfriend! A huge one at that!
I can’t believe she can date someone like that.
Is that the type of guys she likes?
I walked to where i parked my car.
I stood beside it,and looked around, hoping to see reiya but she was no where to be found.
I should have gotten out of the pool sooner but that slap blinded me totally.
I held myself from crying as i opened my car door.
I got behind the wheels,looked around once more desperately hoping to sight reiya but no!
That monster might have dragged her to the room.
I know her room number won’t be disclosed to me…it’s totally against the ethics of their profession.
I inserted the key into the ignition….
I drove into the compound and parked roughly before getting out of the car.
“Tell Max to park it properly” i said and threw the key to James who seemed surprised at my behavior and how wet i looked.
I walked into the house and met mum dropping a call,she looked worried but i don’t care just now.
“Hi Mum” i said heading up to my room.
“Liam what’s wrong?” She asked.
“I don’t want to talk about it” i said.
“Why are you this wet?” She asked.
“I don’t want to talk about it ” i said.
“Okay… Mara just called me now that Kelly was stabbed”
What!!
Mara’s POV
It’s 6pm, getting late.its been 30 minutes since i called Mum and she said she will be here soon.
Kelly hasn’t woken up and i can’t but sending glares to them.
They are so wicked!
They fought to the extent of stabbing their son.
I placed my head in my palms and sighed.
“Your mum is here” Bryan said and i turned to look at the door.
I saw mum and Liam running in..i noticed Liam’s face was sad.
“Mum” I said and stood up to meet her.
“How’s he?” Mum and Liam asked.
“He’s fine but sleeping at the moment,the doctor said we can see him once he’s awake” i said.
“Okay..we don’t have to worry much then” She said and sat on one the chairs.
“Good evening ma’am” Laura greeted.
“How are you dear?” Mum asked.
“I’m fine ma’am” Laura smiled.
“Mum..she’s Laura,my new friend” i said.
“Oh! Laura, good to meet you dear” Mum said.
“Same here ma’am,you look so much like Mara” She said.
Mum smiled…”Yes dear”
I turned to look at Liam,he stood at a corner sulking.
I walked to meet him…
“Liam what’s wrong?” I asked but he didn’t respond.
I sighed…”How was the place you went to? Did you see the girl” I asked.
“Yeah i saw her” he said.
“Wow! How did it go?” I asked eagerly.
“Negative!” He said.
**
I sighed when Liam finished explaining everything to me.
“That’s bad” I said.
“So bad,they are leaving for Mexico tomorrow” he said with so much strain in his voice.
“Do you like her that much?” I asked.
“I love her” he said surprising the hell outta me.
“Wow!” I exclaimed…Liam has never loved anyone.
His phone rang for the third time in his pocket but he ignored it.
“Why don’t you pick up the call” i said.
“It’s one of those girls” he said.
“What if it’s from the company,you know mum left her phone at home…maybe they couldn’t connect to her and tried call you” I said.
He hesitantly brought out the phone from his pocket.
He swiped it to the receiver and placed it on his ear.
“Hello” he said.
I saw his face changed as he began grinning.
“Reiya?” He said happily before running out of the hospital.
I laughed as i watched him go.
Laura, Bryan and i stood in Kelly’s ward.
Mum has gone home to make dinner and Kelly refused to see his parents so we were the only ones here with him.
“I hope you are feeling better?” I asked as i stared at his bandaged chest.
He smiled and nodded,then held my hand.
I let him…
“Be strong buddy” Bryan said with a smile.
“Hey Kelly… how are you?” Laura asked.
“I’m fine everyone…thanks for being here for me” He said.
“It all started when i was still very young,my parents were always fighting throwing things, hurting those around.
I got my first scar when i was five years old.
It continued till i grew up to this stage.
When i got into high school,i decided not to separate any of their fight anymore..I will always cry in my room anytime they are having their fight.
I got to grade 7 and invited my two best friends home..
My parents started their normal fight and ended up hurting one of my friend.
Since then,i was isolated at school. No one wanted to talk to me.
I managed to finish grade 7 and begged for a transfer to this school.
I didn’t resume the first week with you guys cause i was treating my wound at the hospital..
I don’t need to explain where i got that deep wound on my chest,the one you guys kept pestering me about in the school infirmary.
I always dreaded to go home after school cause i know what I’m facing, remember the day you guys came to my house and you heard the shattering of a glass… my parents was fighting then and i had to lie that a glass broke in the attic.
I don’t like my friends coming to my house cause I’m afraid they are gonna get hurt.
When i got home yesterday morning,i met them fighting..
I walked past them but i wasn’t fast enough to before a knife pierced in my chest and I’m glad it isn’t very deep.
I’m fine cause Ive gotten used to that type of life.
I just feel i had to tell you guys this cause you are the only true friends who stood by me.
Thanks so much guys and i love you all” Kelly said smiling amidst tears.
I cried…he has gone through a lot.
This is just too much for him.
Laura held his hand and cried…..
Bryan was trying to hold his tears but it ended up rolling down his cheeks.
“Kelly…I’m so sorry for everything that has happened to you,you’ve gone through a lot” I cried.
We all hugged him tightly and i felt so sick of his parents.
They are so heartless!
*
We disengaged from the hug and Bryan smiled.
“Thanks for sharing this with us” He said and pulled Kelly’s hair playfully.
“Ow! Don’t you see I’m not feeling well” Kelly said.
“Really? Then i guess i will have to pull it harder” Bryan said and we laughed.
“Don’t worry Kelly,we will protect you” i said and noticed he hasn’t released my hand from his grip.
“Yes Kelly,we are here for you okay?” Laura said.
“Thanks so much guys..I’m so happy to have everyone of you in my life” he said.
“We are gonna discuss about this better when you are well enough” Bryan said.
Laura’s phone rang and she walked out of the ward to receive it.
Bryan followed her and i was left in the ward with Kelly.
I felt like standing up but my hand is still in his grip which is making me so uncomfortable.
“Tammy” he called and i faced him.
“Huh?” I asked with a smile shoving one part of his hair aside.
He smiled “I have something to tell you”
“Okay,what?” I asked.
“I..I..i like your hair” He said making me laugh.

Mara’s POV
Damn!!
Why, Kelly!
I left the garden in tears and headed straight to the school restroom.
I opened the door and got in,then locked it behind me.
I walked to the the sink and stared at reflection for so long in the mirror.
I never expected this from Kelly,he just broke that line of friendship between us. I won’t be free around him again.
How could he love me?
How did he develop feelings for me?
Why him?
I want Bryan!!
I don’t want anyone else except Bryan.
Sooner or later,I’m gonna tell him about my feelings,i can’t keep it any longer.
If i had told him earlier,that would have prevented Kelly from telling me s**t..
Ugh!!
I never even thought of Kelly as anything else.
I just like him for being a sweet friend.
Is that the reason he has been so caring about me?
I feel so bad for breaking his heart..it’s so obvious he loves me. I saw that LOVE in his eyes at the garden..
Why didn’t i notice he has feelings for me all this while?
I wish it was Bryan that confessed his feelings to me…i never wished it was Kelly.
I don’t even have any sort of feelings for him.
He never affected me the way Bryan does.
He doesn’t make my heart,beat faster.
He doesn’t stir something deep in my abdomen.
He doesn’t arose any feeling in me.
I was shocked when he told me and i couldn’t help but get annoyed, wishing it was someone else.
I’m sorry Kelly..
I turned on the faucet and rinsed my face in the sink.
I sighed and quickly repacked my hair.
I turned off the faucet then wiped my face with the edge of my shirt.
I tucked in properly and smiled when i sighted the necklace on my neck.
I touched it before kissing it,it has become my treasure and i can’t be more happy to have been one of the lucky fans.
I made the pendant to be inside my shirt.
I didn’t want to answer silly questions from anyone.
I breathed out and walked to the door,i unlocked it and walked out of the restroom…I headed to the class and wondered how I’m gonna face Kelly.
He shouldn’t have told me anything,now I’m dreading to face him.
I walked into the class and thankfully,he isn’t in class yet.
I quickly walked to my seat and sat down.
I saw Bryan and Laura looking at me curiously.
Did they know about this!
Did Bryan know about this!
“Where’s Kelly?” He asked.
“He should be in the garden, Bryan did you knew about it?” I asked.
“About what?” He asked.
“About what Kelly told me in the garden?” I asked.
“What did he tell you?” He asked.
I sighed in relief… thank goodness Bryan doesn’t know about it cause if he does,that means he doesn’t have any feelings for me.
I smiled…”Nevermind”
“Are you sure?” He asked.
“Yeah…he only went to show me some beautiful flowers” I lied.
“Really?” His eyes widened.
“Yeah” I said..
I picked my note when i saw Kelly walk into the class.
He’s looking so sad, making me feel so bad.
He sat on his seat which is beside mine and i had to pretend he wasn’t there.
I saw Kelly look at him, then at me.
I faced Bryan to start up a conversation,i won’t want him knowing what happened.

That might prevent him from asking me out.
School is over for today,we all trooped out of the class heading to the parking lot.
Kelly made me feel guilty throughout the day.
His face was so sad and he didn’t talk to anyone.
Why did he propose to me in the first place!
I just hope he gets over it soon cause I’m not ready to date anyone except Bryan.
Laura and i walked side by side.
Ellen walked at our back and Kelly and Bryan was in the front.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
We got to the parking lot and we all stopped walking.
There was a strain among us and anyone wasn’t willing to talk.
I saw Max waiting beside my car .
“Bye everyone,see you tomorrow” I waved and walked to Max.
I can’t keep seeing Kelly’s face..I hate feeling guilty over something I’m not guilty about.
“Hi Max” I smiled.
“How are you Mara?” He asked.
“I’m fine” I said and opened the car door.
I got in and pulled off my backpack.
Max also got in and turned on the ignition.
I bowed my head as he drove out of the school gate.
He got to the main road and i sighed raising up my head.
I smiled as i felt breeze rush at me.
Max parked properly and i carried my backpack and alighted from the car.
I walked into the house and saw Mum at the living room.
She’s working on her laptop..
“Hi Mum, good afternoon” i said and rushed to peck her.
“Mara you are home…how was school?” She asked pecking me back.
“Fine Mum.. where’s Liam?” I asked.
“He’s in the kitchen” she said.
“Really? Doing what?” I asked.
“Preparing lunch” she said and i laughed.
“Wow! Did he offered to do so?” I asked.
“Yeah” Mum said.
Reiya did a good job in influencing him positively… Liam has changed over the few days he met reiya.
They are now friends and he’s going to meet her in Mexico soon.
I just hope her crazy boyfriend won’t hurt him,cause Liam still insisted on dating her.
I walked to the kitchen and saw Liam walking about in the kitchen with an apron and chef cap.
I laughed at how funny he looked..
He smiled on seeing me…
“Hey sis” he said and started chopping onions.
“Hi bro…I thought you didn’t like chopping onions” i teased.
“Reiya said onion is the best natural medicine for the eyes,so i just decided to add it to our lunch” He smiled.
“Hmm…do you know ever since you ran out of the hospital,you can’t say a full sentence without including reiya” I said.
“Yeah” he grinned.
“Do you like her that much?” I asked.
“I don’t like her,i love her” he said.
“Awwwn” I said placing my jaw on my palms.
He laughed…”quickly go freshen up, lunch will be ready soon”.
“Wow…I can’t wait” i said and started running up the stairs to my room.
I opened the door and stepped in.
I dropped my backpack on the shelf and pulled off my shoes and socks.
I closed the door and pulled off my school wears remaining my undies.
I hanged my school wears and picked my towel before walking into the bathroom.
*
I was rinsing my body under the shower when i noticed i didn’t pull off the necklace.
Damn! I hope it doesn’t rust..
I turned off the faucet and picked my towel.
I quickly dried the necklace, checking it all around expecting it to start rusting but no! I was wrong…it shone brighter surprising me.
“Wow!” I exclaimed and smiled…does this mean i can be bathing with it.
I grinned and wrapped the towel around my body, handling the necklace as i walked back to my room.
I opened my wardrobe and sighed..
I’m tired of seeing the same set of clothes everyday!
I need to change my wardrobe…
I selected a blue faded jeans, with a blue matching blouse.
I dried my body and selected another set of undies.
I smirked before putting it on and then wore my jeans and blouse over it.
I loosened my pontsplait and combed through my hair.
I dropped one hair band on the shelf and used the second one to pack normal ponytail.
I selected a blue slippers from the shoe rack and slide my feet into it.
I walked out of my room and headed down the stairs with my slippers making some funny sounds on the marble stairs.
I got to the dinning room and met mum and Liam seated obviously waiting for me.
I smiled and quickly joined them.
Liam dished out mine for me and we all started eating.
“So delicious” I muttered.
“Yeah” Mum concurred.
Liam smiled..”thanks”
“Liam,you look and act more responsible this days, who is the inspiration?” Mum asked and i giggled looking at Liam.
“It’s Reiya” i said and received a glare from Liam.
I chuckled and gulped down my drink.
“Who is Reiya? And why are you glaring at her, didn’t you want me to know what’s happening?” Mum asked.
“No Mum,but i want to start dating her before telling you about it” He said.
“Oh.. okay,you mean she’s the one who influenced you?” Mum asked.
“I guess so” Liam smiled.
“Wow,is she one of your normal girlfriends?” Mum asked.
“No! She’s not, I’ve not started dating her and she has a monster boyfriend” Liam said sadly.
“Ohh… that’s the reason you’ve not started dating yet?” Mum asked.
He nodded.
“Do you love her?” Mum asked.
“Of course i do”
“Then go for her” Mum said.
“I will Mum,you should trust me..I will be leaving for Mexico by next week” He said.
“Alright..for the girl right?”
“Yes Mum,she didn’t leave for Mexico with her family because of me and she took this morning flight so i promised to come see her over there” he said.
“Okay.. that’s good” Mum said.
I bit into my chicken..”She’s a distant cousin of fallen angels” i grinned with a mouthful.
“Really?”
“Yes Mum and she’s so beautiful” i said.
“I’m gonna show you her pics once we are done eating” Liam said.
“Okay” Mum breathed…”I need to see the lady who made the mighty Liam a chef” Mum said and we laughed.
“I want more” i said.
“Food monger” Liam whispered under his breath,i heard him and ended up hitting a large spoon on his head.
We’ve finished eating and im washing the dishes in the kitchen while Liam showed Mum Reiya’s pics in the living room.
I rinsed the last dish and placed it on the drain board.
I dried my hand with a dishcloth.
I walked out of the kitchen.
“I will be in my room” I said to mum and Liam,then climbed the stairs to my room to read the novel i stole from Liam.
I entered my room and closed the door behind me.
I removed my footwear and jumped on the bed.
I shifted the bedside table and picked the novel behind it.
I smiled…”The mystery of revenge by Azeemah .S.”
Liam didn’t want to borrow me so I had to steal it.
I read the summary before opening to the first page.
I started reading;
“Tam,can i come in” I heard Liam said and quickly hid the novel behind my back.
Damn! Not when I’m enjoying this novel.
He opened the door and walked in.
He laughed and i wondered why he did.
“Bring out the novel you are hiding” he said making me gasp in surprise.
“W.. which novel?” I asked.
“I saw you when you took it from my room but i just decided to let you be..the novel is interesting,you are gonna enjoy it” he said and sat beside me on the bed.
“You are a wizard” I said and he laughed.
“No I’m not”
“You always find out anything I’m hiding” I said.
“I guess you are not a good hider then” he said.
I brought out the novel from my back and hit it hard on his shoulder.
“Ouch” he said.
“Yes! That’s for being a wizard” i said and we both laughed.
We went silent for a moment..
“How’s Bryan and everyone?” He asked.
“They are fine”
“How’s Kelly’s chest?” He asked and that brought back the memories of the garden.
“It’s getting better” I said.
“Is anything wrong?” He asked.
“No, why did you think there’s something wrong?” I asked.
“Well…I sensed a strain in your voice” he said and i sighed.
“I got it! There is something wrong right?” He asked and i nodded.
I was planning on telling him though.
“Kelly confessed his feelings to me” I blurted out.
“Wow.. really?” He asked.
“Yeah” i said.
“So..what was your response?” He asked.
“Response as how?…what did you expect me to tell him?” I asked.
“Don’t you like him also?” He asked.
“No! I don’t,i like him only as a friend..I don’t even like him in that aspect,i was so disappointed when he told me..I told him I’m not interested that he should erase the feelings he’s having for me” I said.
“That’s bad!” Liam said.
“Why’s is it bad?” I asked.
“Don’t you know that speech will hurt him, even if you are not interested,you shouldn’t have talked like that” Liam said.
“Okay..I will apologise to him tomorrow” i said.
“Why didn’t you accept his proposal?”
“Cause i don’t love him! I love someone else” I said.
“Bryan right?” He asked and i nodded.
“Do you know Bryan doesn’t have feelings for you” Liam said making my heart stop for a moment.
“Did he tell you that?” I asked.
“No he didn’t” he said and i sighed in relief.
“But I’m a guy Tam,i would have known if Bryan has feelings for you..he would have confessed to you long ago” Liam said.
“He’s probably shy to do that,i will tell him about my feelings soon” I said.
“He’s not shy Tam, Bryan can’t be shy in that aspect,he only think of you as a friend and nothing else but i had known Kelly has feelings for you the day he came here for your so called practical” Liam said.
“Whatever! He’s gonna forget about the feelings soon” i said.
“He won’t Tam,he loves you” Liam said.
“But i don’t love him! I’m gonna wait for Bryan” I said determinedly.
I can never date Kelly!
“Do you have to wait for Bryan,why don’t you date Kelly for the main time” Liam said.
“I can’t date Kelly cause i don’t love him..let’s not talk about this anymore..it’s making me pissed already” i said.
“Well…I’m gonna respect your decision,you are allowed to do what pleases you cause you know what your heart feels” he said.
“This necklace looks so great on you” He said switching to another topic.
I smiled…”Yeah it does,can you believe it didn’t rust when i showered with it” I said.
“Really?” He asked.
“Yeah” I said.
“Well…you won’t know if it’s gonna rust or not for the next few days” he said.
“No..it shone even brighter” i said.
“Wow..let me have a look at it” he said.
I gladly showed it to him.
Ellen’s POV
I grabbed a towel from the rail after stepping out of the shower.
I wrapped it round my body and walked out of the bathroom,i closed the door and stepped into my room.
I flinched on seeing Quilah sitting on the dressing chair.
“Quilah please have some manners! you can’t just appear in people’s room scaring the freaking hell out of them” I said angrily and moved to the wardrobe.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
“I want you to do something for me” She said.
I closed the wardrobe and walked closer to her.
“I’m not doing anything for you!you told me to slap our cook.
I did!.
You told me to be rude to my parents for a week.
I did!.
You told me to be mean to Mara and not to talk to her anymore.
I did!
And now she already has a new friend,she doesn’t care about me again.. she’s starting to forget me!” I yelled and didn’t know I’ve started crying.
I regret meeting Quilah..
I’ve missed Mara so much!
“You can regret meeting me but you already met me so there is no going back. Listen to what i have to say now, will you do what I’m about to say or not?” She asked.
“I’m not doing anything for you again! Just get out of my life” I yelled and she laughed.
“You shouldn’t have come to me in the first place!” She thundered and stood up making me shift back.
“I regret coming to you! I regret knowing you! I regret bringing Mara to you! ” I said.
“Regret always come last! But i don’t care about that now..will you do what I’m about to ask or not?” She asked.
“I’m not doing anything” i said.
“Well…I guess you should listen to me first; I want you to get that necklace off Tamara Weston’s neck.. it’s preventing me from getting close to her” She said and i sighed.
“Why is it preventing you from getting close to her,it’s just a necklace” I said.
“That necklace is made of the golds in Mofidorano garden,the oldest and the most powerful and spiritual garden in the world…I’ve tried accessing that garden for years but no one can have access to it except the real owners of it..that made it forbidden for us.
I want to get to Mara cause I’m about coming back for her but that necklace is preventing me from doing so..i want you to get it off her neck” She said.
“I can’t get the necklace off her neck cause i can’t allow you hurt Mara” i said sternly.
“Who says i want to hurt her? I’m not hurting her,i need to make some things clear to her,so will you get the necklace off her neck or what?” She asked.
“I won’t!” I said.
“You will! And you must!” She said.
“Mara doesn’t joke with that necklace,even when i told her to give me if she wants to restore her friendship,she didn’t! So how will i collect it from her” i said..
“I just need it off her neck for some minutes so i can get access to her,i don’t care how you are gonna do it..and for the last time,will you do it or not?” She asked.
“I..i will not” I said.
“Okay then,Be ready to mourn your parents” She said and started walking away.
“Wait!” I called starting to tear up.
“What?” She asked.
“I will do it” I cried…

Did she acted due to shock?
Was she surprised i made move on her?
Was i too fast?
Should i give her some time?
But she said she doesn’t love me and will never love me…that statement alone made me so sad.
Is she probably in love with another person?
She said she didn’t wish i could be the one…was she expecting another person?
I guess no! Because Bryan told me she doesn’t have another person,he said she’s still perfectly single and has no crush so why is she rejecting my offer.
Or she doesn’t want to say ‘yes’ on the first trial?
I didn’t plan on giving up on her,i will keep trying till she says ‘yes’ i love Tammy a lot and her words yesterday really hurt me but that made me love her more.
She’s the only one i ever want to be with.
It seems she doesn’t love me but i love her and that’s what matters,i don’t care if she loves me,as long as i love her then we are good..
I need to apologise to Bryan cause i unleased the anger of the rejection on him yesterday…
“Kelly, won’t you get up and dress to school?” I heard Mum said walking into my room.
“OMG are you crying?,why are you crying?” She asked.
I shook my head ” Nothing”
“You mean you just feel like crying all of a sudden?” She asked.
“I don’t want to talk about it” I said slowly.
” Darling,you can tell me anything.. what’s wrong?” She asked.
“I’m fine…I don’t want to talk about anything” I said wishing she would just leave.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes Mum”
“Should i call your dad?” She asked.
“Nooo…I’m fine” I said.
“Did you and Bryan had a fight?” She asked.
“No” I said getting fed up of her questions.
I just wish to be left alone.
“Then why are you crying and ain’t dressed for school yet?” She asked.
“Mum! I just told you i don’t want to talk about it” I said.
“So won’t you go to school?” She asked.
“I don’t feel like going to school today” I said.
“But why?!”
“I don’t want to talk about it…just leave,i want to be left alone” I half yelled drawing the blanket closer to me.
I faced the other side cause i was starting to tear up and wouldn’t want mum to see that..
I sighed when i felt she have gone out.
I turned back and i was right, she has walked out of my room.
Am a total coward for crying over a girl’s rejection but Tammy isn’t just a girl.
She’s my heart!
I was starting to doze off when i heard “Kelly”
‘Bryan?’ I thought then turned to see Bryan walked into my room.
He’s fully dressed for school and i know his driver will be waiting outside.
I sat up “Bryan”
“Kelly,are you okay?” He asked and i nodded.
“H.. how did you come here?” I asked.
“Your Mum called me that you are crying and you refused to dress up for school” he said,then drop his backpack on the couch and sat beside me on the bed.
I sighed and shifted a little so he could be comfortable.
“So why were you crying..are you ill?” He asked and i shook my head.
He smiled..”Mara?”
I didn’t respond,i bowed my head.
“But, Kelly you don’t expect her to concede to your request on the first trial,you will keep trying till she agrees.
“I’m sorry about the way i acted towards you yesterday,I acted according to the pain of the rejection” I said.
“I understand but you haven’t given me enough details,i just knew that she rejected so how did it happen?” Bryan asked.
“I told her about my feelings and she flared up” I said.
“Really?”
“Yeah…she said she didn’t love me and will never love me,she only took me as a friend,i should erase any feelings I’m having for her that she didn’t wish i was the one” I said.
“She said she didn’t wish you were the one?” Bryan asked.
“Yeah”
“Is she expecting someone else to ask her out” Bryan said.
“I think so” I said.
“But, Mara doesn’t have a crush. If she has,she will have told me and i also didn’t observe her crushing on anyone…she probably said that to discourage you” Bryan said.
“Really?”
“Yeah, you are gonna try again..you claim you love her right?”
“Yeah i do” i said.
“Then you’ll keep trying until you get her” he said.
“She warned me not to talk about it again if i don’t want to put our friendship at risk” I said.
“It’s just a threat,she might even want you to keep on trying ” Bryan said.
“Really?” I said starting to smile.
“Yeah or…” Bryan said with a raised brow.
“Or what?” I asked.
“Should i help you talk to her?” He asked and my smile widened.
“Yesssss” I said happily…she will listen to Bryan if he helps me talk to her.
“Okay..i will talk to her on your behalf” He said.
“Thanks,she’s gonna listen to you” i said happily.
“Let’s hope she does,Mara can be stubborn at times” he said.
“But you are gonna help me talk to her right?”
“Yeah..I will” he said.
“Thanks buddy” I hugged him.
He suddenly laughed making me look at him curiously.
“You looked exactly like Mr Curt when you were crying” he said and we both laughed.
“Now get up and start dressing for sch–” he was saying but i already jumped out of bed.
I picked my towel.
“Help me bring out my school wears,it’s in the wardrobe” I said before running into the bathroom.
I hanged my towel on the rail and opened the cabinet,i brought out my toothbrush and paste then moved to the wash basin.
I applied enough paste on my toothbrush.
I started brushing.
I brushed, brushed and brushed till i was certain my teeth were clean.
I turned on the mixer tap and rinsed my mouth thoroughly before rinsing the toothbrush.
I put the brush and paste back into the cabinet then picked my sponge case,then pulled off my pajamas before entering the shower cubicle.
I picked my soap from the soap dish and placed it on my sponge.
I turned on the shower and started bathing.
I turned off the shower and stepped out of the shower cubicle,i picked my towel and wrapped it round my waist,then dried my feet on the bath mat before walking back into my room.
I saw my school wears and underwear already spread on the bed but couldn’t find Bryan.
Has he left?
I sighed when i saw his backpack still on the couch.
I quickly dried my body and applied body lotion.
I put on my underwear then my school trouser,my school shirt which i tucked into the trouser after buttoning it down.
I wore my socks then picked my black shoes from the shoe rack,i slide my socked feet into it then headed to the front of the full length mirror.
I’m looking good,i just need to brush back my hair the way Tammy likes.
I so much love that girl and i smiled at how happy I’m gonna be once she accepts to date me.
I picked my hairbrush and brushed down my hair.
I dropped the brush and stood straight.
“Wow! You are cute but not as cute as i am ” Bryan said walking into the room with a tray of steaming tea and toast bread.
I smiled…”I’m gonna be cuter than you soon so just watch out”
He laughed and dropped the tray on the table.
“Where were you,I thought you had gone when i didn’t see you in the room but your backpack assured me” I said.
“I went to help Mum in the kitchen,then after that i was served breakfast..i offered to bring yours to you,so you can eat fast cause we are running late” he said and i glanced at the wall clock.
“Wow!” I exclaimed and quickly settled down to eat my breakfast.
Bryan laughed at how i was rushing breakfast.
“Be careful not to burn your mouth,that tea is damn hot!” He said.
I nodded and ate the last piece of toast.
I gulped down the entire team making Bryan gasp.
“Damn! Is your mouth made for hot things?” He asked.
I laughed…”Hell no! But I’m used to it”
“Wow,i had to wait for my tea to be warm before taking it but you just gulped everything without wincing” he said.
“That shows I’m more matured than you” I teased.
“In your dreams” he said and we laughed.
We stood up and picked our backpacks,i held my empty tray of breakfast as we both walked out of the room.
We descended the stairs and headed to the kitchen.
We met mum switching off the gas cooker.
“Wow… thanks Bryan,i can see he’s already dressed for school” Mum said.
“Sorry for being rude earlier mum” I said and dropped the tray on the breakfast bar.
“No it’s okay,i understood your mood so you guys are ready to leave right?”
“Yes Mum” we chorused.
“Alright,have a nice day at school..my greetings to Tamara and Laura”
“Okay mum…bye” we said and walked out of the kitchen.
“Bye” she called after us.
We stepped out of the house…
“Rollins is gonna drive the both of us in my car” Bryan said to me as we walked to Tina.
“Okay, good morning Tina” I greeted.
“How are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine…my friend’s driver offered to drive us to school” i said.
“Okay,no problem..I will head back to my quarter” She said and walked away.
“Okay Tina”
We walked to Rollins who was standing beside Bryan’s car.
“Hi Rollins” I greeted.
“Hey Kelly,how are you?” He asked.
“I’m fine”
“Okay guys,hop into the car let’s go” he said.
Mara’s POV
Everyone was seated in class except Bryan and Kelly of course.
I planned on apologising to him for being harsh yesterday but he’s yet to be here.
He and Bryan do arrive early to school but none of them is here.
I just hope nothing is wrong.
I placed my head on the desk starting to get worried Bryan isn’t in school.
He always calls me anytime he’s gonna be absent but I’ve not seen his call.
I will wait for a little bit before calling him.
I felt a tap on my shoulder and i was shocked to see it’s Ellen.
I smiled..’is she about to reconcile with me?’
“Hi Mara” she said and i almost hugged her.
“Ellen” I nearly screamed.
“How have you been?” She asked and this time i couldn’t resist hugging her.
I hugged her tightly and i was surprised she hugged me too.
“I’ve not been good Ellen,i missed you” I said and peck her cheeks like i always do.
She smiled but i saw a hint of sadness behind that smile.
“I’m sorry for being mean to you all this while,I’m so sorry” She pleaded.
“Oh..my..God please don’t tell me sorry, having you back as my friend is okay” I smiled and held her hand.
I’m so happy!!
She dragged my cheeks and pinched my nose.
We both laughed as we hugged each other again.
“You know we are back as friends now?” She asked.
“Yeah” I grinned.
“So will you borrow me your necklace,till school is over..i also want to feel it against my neck” She said.
“Of course..I will give you” i said and began unhooking the necklace.
I unhooked it and wore it round her neck.
“Wow…it looks so nice on you” i said.
“Yeah … Thanks Mara,I’m gonna return it before school is over” She said.
“No problem,so friends?” I asked.
“Of course” she said and i hugged her again.
I felt her withdraw but smiled when i saw Bryan and Kelly walked in.
Damn! So hot…I mean Bryan.
They both walked over to their seats.
“Hi Bryan,you were quite late today” I said as he sat down and dropped his backpack.
I turned to him fully.
“Yeah i went to Kelly’s house,his mum called me while i was on my way to school that he’s crying and refuses to dress up for school..so i went over to his house” he said.
“Oh..Kay” I said feeling so uncomfortable knowing he’s sitting right beside me.
“Don’t you care to know the reason he was crying?” Bryan asked.
“I don’t think i should know” I said feeling bad i made someone cry.
I turned to Kelly..
Wow i didn’t notice he wore his hair back just like the way I like and i think it looks good on him.
“Hi Kelly” I said.
“H..huh? Hi” he stammered..
I already know things won’t be same between us anymore.
“I’m sorry for the way i reacted yesterday” I said.
He smiled and that killer dimple appeared.
“It’s okay Tammy” he said.
“Did you cried because of me?” I asked,he nodded and i felt so bad.
I held his hand and i guess he was surprised..
“I’m sorry for making you cry but i need to tell you this clearly; I’m not interested” I said and withdrew my hand when i noticed he was starting to hold it tightly.
“I will make you interested Tammy” he said kinda pissing me off.
“Whatever!” I scoffed.
I turned back to Bryan.
“Bryan guess what?” I asked excitedly.
“What?” He asked.
“Ellen and i have reconciled” I said.
“Really?” He asked and looked at Ellen who nodded and smiled.
“Wow… that’s a great news.. finally,the two best friends are back together..i miss seeing the both of you together ” he said.
“Me too” I grinned.
My eyes locked with Laura’s and i saw a look of hurt in her eyes.
Oh! Is she jealous?…
“Laura” I called.
“Huh?” She asked.
“You still remain my friend okay?” I said.
Laura is someone i will never stop being friends with,she’s fun and lovely.
“Really?” She asked.
“Yeah, you still remain my friend now and forever” I said.
She smiled..”Thanks Mara,i thought you will dispose me cause i can see you are back with Ellen”
“Of course no! I can’t dispose of you, you were there when I needed you most and you will forever be my friend…Ellen will be so glad to be friends with you” i said.
“Thanks Mara,but… don’t you think you gave her that necklace a little bit soon,i mean; you both just reconciled and the next thing she asked for was your necklace” Laura said.
“No, there is nothing wrong with that.. Ellen always admire beautiful accessories and she said she’s gonna give it back to me before school is over,she only likes it and feel like wearing it for a while” I said.
“Ohh… okay, I’m glad you still considered me as your friend even after reconciling with Ellen” She said.
“Yeah it’s fine… Ellen” I called and she glanced up.
“Huh?” She asked.
“Meet Laura,she’s so nice” i said.
I sighed when i saw them glare at each other.
A teacher walked in and everyone sat properly and faced the front of the class.
I’m not so happy cause i know Laura and Ellen won’t get along.
“She was my friend before you popped in like a balloon okay?” Ellen yelled at Laura.
“You were mean to her for months,i was the one who stand in so you should Bleep off” Laura retorted.
We were in the cafeteria having lunch when they both started yelling at each other.
“You are just an ugly bitch who wants to make friends with the school prettiest girl,why didn’t you make friends with her when she was fat!” Ellen said.
“Fat?” Kelly asked and i felt a bit embarrassed.
“Yeah…Mara was once fat” Ellen said.
“Really?” Kelly asked.
“Yeah” I murmured.
“So how did you turn this way?” He asked.
“I did some workout” I said.
“Wow! Merely looking at you,i wouldn’t have imagined you were once fat” he said.
I nodded and continued with my lunch.
I looked at Bryan and noticed he didn’t say anything since.
I brushed my shoulder with his making him look at me.
“What’s wrong?” I asked while Ellen and Laura kept yelling at each other.
“Come with me to the garden” He said and picked his iPod on the table before standing up.
I stood up after him.
“Where are you guys going to?” Ellen asked.
“We’ll be right back” Bryan said.
We both walked to the garden and i wondered what’s bothering him.
I just hope he will be fine or is he about-
Confess his feelings to me!
OMG!
I will say ‘yes’ immediately…
I sat on the bench beside Bryan waiting for what he’s about to say.
I feel my heart fluid overflowing… i really hope he’s about to confess his feelings to me.
He cleared his throat and my pumped twice.
“Mara i don’t know how to break this down t-”
“Yes..I agree” I said excitedly.
“Agree to what?” He asked
“I agree to anything you are about to say” I smiled.
“You mean you are gonna agree to anything i say?” He asked with a smile.
“Yes i will” i said happy that my dream is about to come true.
OMG!! At last!!
“Okay.. thank goodness you promise to agree to anything i say” he said.
“Yeah i promise” I grinned.
“Okay…it’s about Kelly” he said and my heart sank.
I stood up abruptly…
“What do you want to tell me about Kelly?” I said feeling so disappointed it’s not what i thought.
“Please Mara, Kelly really loves you. You might not love him but please just give him a chance, please Mara” he said and i felt my stomach rumbled in anger.
I held myself from slapping him and i hope the tears I’m holding is not gonna pour.
“Y-you are pleading for Kelly?” I asked in disbelief.
“Yes is anything wrong?” He asked.
“You must be crazy!” I yelled in anger and turned to leave.
“Mara” he called and held me back.
I feel like shrugging off his hand but i can’t! Feeling his touch alone weakened me.
Does this mean he doesn’t feel anything for me?
If he does! He won’t have begged on Kelly’s behalf!
Why the hell did Kelly told him to beg me!
He might have wanted to tell me about his feelings but Kelly stopped it!
I freaking hate that guy right now!
I’m sure Bryan feels something for me,it’s because Kelly came first destroying everything.
I have to make him know i don’t love Kelly so he will confess his hidden feelings for me and if he doesn’t i will confess to him myself.
It’s high time i did that!
“Mara but you said you will agree to anything i say” he said and i turned to him.
“I’m sorry i yelled at you but if i knew this was what you were gonna say. I wouldn’t have uttered that” i said.
“Why don’t you wanna date Kelly? Mara that guy loves you,he cried overnight just because of you.. please just give him a chance” he said.
“I don’t love him! I don’t freaking love him,i can’t date someone i don’t love” I said.
“Okay,but just give him a chance and i promise you will get to love him” he said.
“I can’t love him,even in hundred years to come!.. Bryan i can’t believe you are pleading on Kelly’s behalf” I said.
“Why shouldn’t i? Kelly is my friend and i have to help him pursue anything he wants” he said.
“Whatever! I just want you to know that i don’t love him and will never love him” I said imagining Kelly and i in a relationship.
I spat…it can’t even work!
“Why? Mara why are you refusing to date Kelly?” He asked.
“Cause I’m in love with someone else!” I blurted out.
“Who?” He asked.
“Y.. Nevermind” I said and felt like spanking myself for not having the courage to talk.
“You are in love with someone?” He asked and i nodded.
“Yeah” I said.
“You are in love with someone else and i don’t know. Cut the crap Mara,i know you are saying that to make Kelly back off” He said.
“I’m not joking! I love someone else” i said.
“Are you sure the person loves you? Don’t lose Kelly over someone who you aren’t sure loves you” he said and i felt sad.
Am i sure Bryan loves me?
Yes! Hell yes! I’m sure Bryan loves me.
He’s being timid to tell me that yet.
“Bryan, listen; I don’t love Kelly,i don’t love him and can’t date him. Can you date someone you don’t love? Or if you don’t love Ellen, would you have dated her?” I asked.
“I don’t love Ellen” He said to my surprise.
“What?” I asked, feeling a bit happy he doesn’t love Ellen..
Am i the one he love instead?
Yes! I knew it!
“Yeah i don’t have any feelings for Ellen, infact..I don’t even feel a thing for her” Bryan said.
“Then why did you date her?” I asked.
“It was a truth and dare” he said shocking me to the bone.
“T-truth and dare?” I asked .
“Yeah..we had a truth and dare at my house part-” he was saying but i cut him short.
“You mean; Ellen came to your house party?” I asked in disbelief.
Ellen was the one who said we shouldn’t attend Bryan’s party and we didn’t! So what the hell is going on?
“Yes,she attended my house party so during the truth and dare section,she dared me to date her for three months and that’s how all these came about. Didn’t she told you?” he asked.
Damn!!

Liam’s POV
I sat in the living room smiling as i chatted with Reiya.
I’ve been meeting girls but Reiya’s case is exceptional.
I initially thought i love her because she’s relative to fallen angels but no!
I found out that i really love her not because of who she is or who she is related to.

I wanna be her boyfriend but she gat one silly ass
who doesn’t wanna let her be.
Am gonna ask her about it;
Liam; I guess you like huge guys.
Reiya; huh? Not really.
I wish i was huge.
Lol..Why?
So you will notice me.
I wouldn’t have noticed you if i don’t want to.
Really?
Yeah…
I was surprised to know that huge guy is your boyfriend..i mean he doesn’t befit you,you are not meant for someone like him.
I think so too but i agreed to date him cause he was so sweet at first.
Can’t you call off things with him?
Why should i?
“Cause I’m here for you,why don’t you understand that!” I said aloud wishing i can text it to her.
He hits you! He nearly killed me with that slap.
Lol,he didn’t hit me. He only pushed me into the pool and he apologized thoroughly,i forgave him and we are back together.
When will i ever get a chance ?
For?
Reiya,i love you and i badly want you to be mine.
We can’t discuss that here, we will,once you drop in at Mexico.
Really?
Yeah.
Wow! Is she about to give me a chance?
I will be so glad.
Okay..I’m gonna drop in next week.
You still with that address i gave you?
Of course…
*The door bell rang.
BRB” i quickly texted before dropping my phone on the couch.
I stood up and walked to the door.
I opened it and was surprised to see Oona.
Damn! What’s she doing here?
I’ve broken up with her long ago.
“Oona what are you doing here?” I asked.
“Won’t you allow me in first?” She asked pushing her cleavage up.
I remembered i met her when i went to the grocery store,i got my things and was about leaving when she stopped me.
I was not surprised to see her ask me out.
That’s a normal routine for me.
I accepted and placed her on condition..”I don’t love! and i break up whenever i feel like.
She accepted and we got on with the relationship.
I sneak her into the house a lot of times like i do with the others.
I got tired of her and i called off things with her but she just wouldn’t leave.
I’ve called off things with all the girls I’m having a nice time with but Oona remained on my neck!
This girl wouldn’t just leave!
“Liam am still standing!” She said.
“I didn’t ask you to come” I said.
“Is that the reason you will leave me standing by the door?” She asked.
I’m glad mum isn’t home.
“Come in” I hesitantly said and paved way for her to come in.
She walked in and i noticed she was putting on a red mini gown with a low neckline,red heels and a black shoulder bag,she packed her black hair in a smooth ponytail and her lushed lips were covered in deep red lipstick.
She’s looking stunning but not as Reiya,there is something about Reiya that keep pulling me to her.
I’ve never felt anything for Oona or any other lady except Reiya.
What i have for Reiya is Love,what i have for others is lust!
I closed the door and walked to her.
She’s already seated on the couch.
I sat on a different couch to listened to what she has to say.
“Why are you here?” I asked.
“Liam, please don’t do this to me,i love you” she said.
“Oona i told you right from the start that i don’t love you! I told you I’ll break up anytime i want and you conceded to it” I said.
“Yeah i did but i love you,just tell me all i need to do” She said.
“You don’t need to do anything,I’m done with you! That was our agreement,you are beautiful and there are other guys who are willing to kill for you…just go for one of them” I said.
“I know but you are the one i want” she said.
“You want me but can’t get me..I’m so sorry Oona,I’m not interested anymore..not that we were in a relationship though…it’s just sex” I blurted.
“I’m willing to give you more of the sex,just don’t call off things with me..I really love you Liam and i want to be with you” She said.
“Oona…I’m starting to get fed up about all this. Can’t you just get this! I’m not interested anymore..I’m sorry” i said.
“Is there anyone else?” She asked and i nodded.
“I guess so,we are not in a relationship yet but very soon we will” I said.
“I’m gonna kill that freaking girl! If i set my eyes on her” Oona cried and got up on her feet.
“I understand but also go get a life,date a responsible being out there and you are gonna enjoy it” I said.
I stood up and drew her close to me when i noticed she has started sobbing.
“I’m sorry Oona,you just have to let it go..you don’t always get what you want” I said and stroked her.
I got the surprise of my life when she pushed me on the couch and got on top of me then began pulling down my shorts.
“Oona wait,are you…stop!” I yelled pushing her hands away.
I didn’t succeed in holding off her hands,she was more like a wild animal now.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
She started pulling off her gown.
“Oona,get off me! I don’t want to hurt you” I said.
I pulled back her gown and my hand accidentally brushed her b**bs.
I groaned as i noticed i was starting to get hard.
I might end up doing something crazy if i didn’t push her away.
I finally succeeded in pushing her away.
I sighed when she landed on the floor.
I picked her up, then also picked her bag and shoes,she kept dragging my t-shirt, stretching to kiss me as i carried her outside.
I opened the door and dropped her outside ,then dropping her bag and shoes beside her.
“Oona just leave! Okay?” I said.
“To hell with you” She spat and stood up.
She adjusted her gown,wore her shoes and picked her bag.
She loosened her ponytail and repacked it.
The next thing i heard was a loud bang on my cheek.
She slapped me!
I sighed and rubbed my cheek..i think my cheeks are made only for slaps and surprisingly the two slaps I’ve ever received is because of Reiya.
“Go to hell Liam! I’m gonna kill that fucking bitch! You are fucking in love with!” She yelled.
“I’m sorry,i understand how you feel but I’m not at fault,we made an agreement from the beginning and you agreed to it!” I said.
“I don’t care! I’m leaving now but watch out for me” she said and turned to walk away.
I smiled and closed the door…I’ve received more dangerous threats than this.
We will have an agreement at the beginning but they just won’t wanna leave me.
I felt my stomach rumbled in hunger.
That crazy girl has drained me…I’m glad she’s outta my life.
I walked to the kitchen but didn’t feel like cooking,i opened the fridge and saw some biscuits and chocolate.
I would rather order pizza..
I picked a glass of wine wine with a glass cup then headed back to the living room.
I dropped the wine and glass on the table then rubbed my cheeks.
She looks soft but her palm is just like that monster’s.
I sat down and popped the wine open.
I poured a whole lot into the glass cup then gulped it down.
I picked my phone,i need to order the pizza now.
Reiya; Hey! are you there?
I smiled and quickly replied..
Yeah…i went to sort out some things.
Oka-
*A call came in..
Sandra?
I thought I’ve called off things with her too.
I swiped it to the receiver and placed it on my ear.
You sonofabitch! you think you can dump me and go Scot free,I’m gonna hunt you” Sandra yelled into the phone.
Don’t block off my ear with your immature yell okay!”
I..im sorry Liam but please i want you back.
After calling me a sonofabitch?
I’m glad i never brought her to my house,we normally make use of the hotel.
She would have come ranting and i hope she doesn’t find out my residence soon.
Girls are so crazy!
I’m sorry,my anger took the better part of me.
Sandra! Don’t call me again,I’ve called off things with you!
But i freaking want you back!!” She yelled almost blocking off my ears.
Where did i meet this girl!
Of course she asked me out herself.
I would never have asked a crazy dog out!
Remember we had agreement at the start,why don’t you girls keep to agreements! I told you I’m not in for a relationship! I’m not ready for love! I will break up whenever i want and you agreed to it.. I only wanted your body, nothing else!
I didn’t know when i fell in love with you! please Liam,i don’t want to lose you.
I’m very sorry but i gotta click on you” I said and quickly disconnected the call.
Haaa!…she’s calling back again.
I just have to switch to airplane mode but i won’t be able to chat Reiya anymore.
I will make use of my second phone.
I quickly switched my phone to airplane mode before another crazy call comes in.
I’m fed up!
They keep calling each minute and would not allow one to rest..not that i asked them out myself.
I placed my phone on the couch and unplugged my second phone.
I have to order pizza first before continuing the chat with Reiya because i know once i continue chatting her,my brain would not think of anything else.
Reiya what have you done to me
Mara’s POV
“You mean; Ellen came to your house party?” I asked in disbelief.
Ellen was the one who said we shouldn’t attend Bryan’s party and we didn’t! So what the hell is going on?
“Yes,she attended my house party so during the truth and dare section,she dared me to date her for three months and that’s how all these came about” he said.
Damn!!
“S..she didn’t tell me … I wasn’t aware” I smiled.
Does that mean,i still have a chance with Bryan.
It’s three months already,it’s just remaining few weeks.
Is he waiting for the three months to be complete before asking me out?
Yes! Why didn’t i thought of that.
“She told me she already told you, that’s why i didn’t bother on telling you..I’m surprised you didn’t know all this while” he said.
“Huh…she tried to tell me but i didn’t want to listen” I lied.
“Really?”
“Yeah” I grinned.
“So what about what i discussed with you?” He asked.
“What?” I asked.
“About Kelly” he said and i had to stop myself from hissing.
“I’m not interested” i said firmly.
“Please Mara, Kelly is gonna be expecting a positive reply..he trusted me to talk to you” he said.
“Just tell him i don’t love him! I can’t date someone I’m not in love with.. that’s totally crazy” I said.
“It doesn’t matter, please just consider him” Bryan said.
“I’m going back to class” I said.
“What should i tell Kelly? He’s gonna be expecting something positive or close to it” he said.
“Okay…just tell him I’m gonna have a rethink about it” i said.
“You mean,you are gonna have a rethink about it?” Bryan asked with a smile surprising me.
“Hell no! I’m not having a rethink about anything,I just wanted you to tell him that cause you said he’ll be expecting a positive reply,so just tell him that…I don’t want him weeping his eyes out overnight” I said and turned to leave.
“But Mara,this is unfair” he said.
“Seriously! I don’t get you anymore Bryan.. do you expect me to get into a loveless relationship?” I said.
“You will get to love him later on, Kelly is a lovable person and you know it!” He said.
“Spare me that thrash” i said and walked away from the garden.
I smiled when i cornered to the direction of the classroom.
That’s gonna convince Bryan enough that i don’t love Kelly,then he’s gonna propose to me in few weeks!
I’m so happy.
I walked into the class and noticed everyone was back in their seats, including Ellen, Laura and of course Kelly who sat like he’s waiting for an examination result.
I walked to my desk and dropped on my seat.
I turned to Ellen…
“Ellen,you didn’t tell me you and Bryan are just dating for three months” I said.
“Yeah, remember we were not in talking terms then” She said and i nodded.
“That’s true so do you think after three months. Bryan is gonna confess his feelings to me?” I grinned.
“Yes he will” Ellen said.
“I can’t wait!” I said holding myself from jumping and screaming.
“Hey what’s up? You look so excited” Laura said.
“Just face your desk! You don’t have to know the reason she looks excited” Ellen yelled at her.
“Tch! You act so childish” Laura said and turned back to her desk.
I sighed as i looked at the both of them.
Why can’t they just get along? The three of us will make great friends..
Bryan walked into the classroom and attracted attention as usual.
He went to Kelly’s seat and whispered something in his ear.
Kelly smiled and looked at me..
Oh! What a fool,he fell for the ‘rethink’ of a thing.
Rethink! My foot!
Bryan walked back to his seat which is beside mine.
I smiled knowing he’ll be my boyfriend in weeks to come..
I’m not gonna let go of him.
I will make sure we get married and have beautiful kids.
That would be the best thing that will ever happen to me and I’m waiting.
*
We had three more subjects before school is over.
Everyone picked their backpack and began trooping out of the class.
I kept deciding who to walk with between Laura and Ellen cause they both stood waiting for me.
I sighed…”Let’s go girls”
I took their hands each, making me in the middle.
We walked to the parking lot and i can’t help but smile when they both cursed at each other..
Me being in the middle, everything was directed to me.
We got to the parking lot and waited for Bryan and Kelly to join us.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 6:43pm On Nov 21, 2019
“Mara, don’t forget to collect your necklace” Laura said.
“Wow, thanks. I’ve totally forgotten” I said.
“I was about giving her,so you reminding her is just a waste” Ellen said to Laura.
I helped her unhook the necklace,i wore it back on my neck and sighed.
There’s this feeling that rush over me once i wear this necklace but i guess it’s normal.
I’m probably feeling the tension of wearing fallen angel neckline.
Bryan and Kelly walked into the parking lot and i must confess they both look like idols.
Breathtakingly handsome but Bryan is far handsome that Kelly.
They got to us.
“Bye everyone” Ellen said first,then pecked Bryan and waved at Kelly and i before walking over to her car.
She got in and her driver drove off.
“Bye guys” Laura said and pecked my cheeks,she held Kelly and Bryan’s hands and then walked to her car.
“Okay by–” Bryan was saying when i cut him off.
He’s about leaving me with this guy.
“I will leave first” i said and pecked Bryan.
It felt more good,i think it’s because I’m gonna belong to him soon.
I waved at Kelly who has that longing look in his eyes as i walked away.
He should just let me be!
“Hey Max” I greeted when i got into the car.
“How are you Mara?” He asked nicely.
“I’m fine Max” I said.
He turned on the ignition and drove out of tbr the school compound, speeding home.
“Wow!” I exclaimed as i walked into the living room and saw a family size pizza on the table, in front of Liam who was engrossed in his phone.
He looked up and smiled on seeing me.
“Hey Liam” i said and shifted closer to the pizza.
Yummy
I noticed he has eaten some slices.
I bent to pick a slice but got spanked on the back of my palm.
“Ow!” I exclaimed and sent daggers at Liam.
“Go freshen up first before you dip your hand into it” He said.
“But I’m just gonna take a slice!” I half yelled.
“I know but just go freshen up first then you can eat as much as you want” he said.
“Whatever” I rolled my eyes still eyeing the pizza as i walked slowly to the stairs.
“I’m chatting with Reiya” Liam said.
“Really?” I said and walked back to him.
I was looking for an opportunity to take a slice of pizza before going to my room and here! It has present itself.
“Yeah” Liam said and i bent to look at his phone.
“Wow!” I exclaimed slowly taking my hand to the pizza.
Liam caught me and was about to slap my hand away but i had already grabbed a slice..no it’s two.
I laughed as i ran up the stairs, stuffing the pizza in my mouth.
“I shouldn’t have allowed you see the pizza” Liam called after me.
“Good for you” I shouted with a mouthful.
I smiled and opened the door to my room.
I walked in and finished chewing the pizza before dropping my backpack on the shelf..
I pulled off my shoes first then my pop sock,my shirt came third while my skirt came last.
I grabbed a towel and wrapped it round my body before hanging back my school wears on the rail.
I walked to the bathroom and hanged my towel on the rail,then pulled off my undies and added them to the laundry.
I stood under the shower and was about turning on the faucet when i saw i still had my necklace on.
Should i remove it so it won’t rust?
I showered with it yesterday and it didn’t show any sign of ‘rusting’
I’m not gonna remove it,i want to see how it’s gonna shone after i finish bathing just like yesterday.
“Wow!” I exclaimed when i saw the necklace shone brightly.
I just finished bathing and was about picking my towel when a light shone into my eyes.
I looked down and noticed it was coming from my necklace..
It shone yesterday after i finished bathing with it and it shone today too,that means I’m never gonna be taking it off..
Thanks fallen angels…
I picked my towel, wrapped it round my body and walked back to my room.
**
I was done putting on my pink sweatshirt and white pants.
I stood in front of the mirror and repacked my pontsplait.
Perfect!
I bent over my shoe rack and selected a pair of pink flip flop.
I slide my feet into it, picked my phone from my backpack and walked out of my room.
I closed the door descended the stairs to the living room.
*
I sat beside Liam and poured some wine in the glass cup.
I drank a little before reaching for the pizza.
I picked three slices together and started eating.
I noticed Liam was engrossed in his chat and wasn’t paying attention to me.
i can’t just sit, eating pizza and staring into space.
I stood up and selected one of the US drama Laura brought for me.
I inserted it into the DVD player, turned on the TV and went to sit waiting for it to load.
I gulped down some wine and picked another two slices of pizza.
I started eating it and then placed my legs on the footstool.
I took the remote control and pressed ‘play’
It started playing…
Ellen’s POV
I sat on the bed eating burger with my phone on my laps.
Im watching a comedy skit on Instagram.
It wasn’t funny so i scrolled up to see other updates.
A message came in…
Hi
To hell I’m replying that!
The guy is so ugly!!!
I left the message section and continued scrolling up.
I picked my glass cup of juice and gulped down enough before picking my burger.
I bit into it and continued checking updates.
I suddenly felt Quilah presence,i raised up my head and saw her leaning beside my dressing table.
Solely written by Azeemah .S.
‘What again?’
“What again right?” She asked.
“Yeah,what again? I guess you saw that i collected the necklace from Mara so what else?” She asked.
“You haven’t completed your task cause i wasn’t able to get access to her” She said surprising me a bit.
“Really? But i took the necklace from her” i said.
“Yeah but she was close to someone that has that necklace on so i wasn’t able to access her”
Which other person has the necklace on.
“That’s Bryan,i remembered they both went to the garden together… Wow! So he actually protected her with his own necklace” i said.
“Yes he did,you have another task to complete for me” She said.
“Quilah, seriously I’m fed up of these tasks you keep asking me to complete…when will all this stop?” I asked.
“Not anytime soon” She said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yeah so the second task is to make sure Bryan Shaw doesn’t wear that necklace to school tomorrow,then you will also collect Tamara Weston’s tomorrow” She said already pissing me off.
“I’m not doing that! Would i just call Bryan and tell him not to wear the necklace he cherishes so much to school…what reason will i give him. Quilah this is totally crazy!” I said.
“I don’t care how you’ll go about it,just make sure they are both not with their necklaces tomorrow…this is taking forever,i have to access Tamara Weston before Kimptuhd” She said.
“What’s Kimptuhd?” I asked curiously.
“You are not entitled to know that” She said.
“I really want to know the meaning” i said.
“Are you starting to get inquisitive now!” She half yelled.
“No no..” I quickly replied.
“So will you carry out the task or not?” Quilah asked.
“I will be able to get Mara’s necklace from her tomorrow cause she’s a bit dumb but Bryan,how will i tell him not to wear his necklace to school” I said thinking of a way but none came.
“I don’t care how you are gonna do it,all i want is for the task to be done. If you don’t do it,i guess you know the price” She laughed and disappeared.
I sighed and picked up my phone.
I logged out of my Instagram page and scrolled through my call logs.
I clicked on Bryan’s contact and placed it on speaker as it began ringing.
I thought of how to tell him not to wear his necklace to school tomorrow…
Hey babe” His voice broke through my thoughts.
Hi Bryan,how are you?
I’m fine.
Uh…do you wear your necklace to school all the time?
Of course,why are you asking?
Uhm…cause i don’t want you to wear it to school tomorrow.
Why?”
I just don’t want you to wear it, remember you promised me to do whatever i want for me.
I did! But there must be a reason you said i should not wear my necklace to school tomorrow..you never noticed the necklace so how come you are suddenly saying i shouldn’t wear it?
I just don’t feel like seeing it on your neck tomorrow” I said at loss for words.
He laughed Are you okay?
Yes i am,just don’t wear it tomorrow..you promised you will do anything i ask.
Yeah but I’m sorry i can’t do this,ask for another thing.
I don’t want another thing apart fr–
It’s impossible Ellen…Bye!
Bryan.. Bryan.
He has disconnected the call..
I breathed out and got up from the bed.
I’m going to his house, that’s an opportunity for me to carry out my second plan.
Three months is almost over and i can’t lose on both end.
I grabbed a yellow jacket and wore it over my white armless jumpsuit.
I selected a yellow slippers and dropped my phone inside the jacket pocket.
I sat on the dressing stool and applied a little make up.
I stood up and opened the drawer,then brought out the sedative I’ve been keeping for today.
Three months is a long period of time and i can’t allow it go to waste without achieving a thing.
I held it tightly and wrapped it in a nylon before putting it in my pocket.
I took a last glance at the mirror and sighed before walking out of my room.
Yeah!

{The next day }
Bryan’s POV
“I had sex with Ellen!
I had sex with her!
I freaking had sex with that girl” I yelled on the verge of tears.
“Chill Bryan,how did everything happened?” Kelly asked sitting beside me on the bed,he’s fully dressed for school and it’s just remaining for me to wear my shoes but I’m freaking mad at myself.
I had asked him to come down to my house,i don’t think i can cope with the fact that i had sex with Ellen right on this bed.. yesterday!
“She called me yesterday afternoon and was speaking gibberish about me not wearing my necklace to school today.
I disconnected the call and placed a call to Kim to get me a glass cup of orange juice.
I waited for a lot of minutes,i was about going down to meet Kim about my glass cup of juice when Ellen walked in with it.
I was surprised to see her….
Flashback
I was sitting on the bed in my room when Ellen walked in.
“Ellen,how come you are here?” I asked her as she walked into my room with a tray containing the orange juice i requested for from Kim.
She smiled…”I came to spend some time with you”
“Okay,so what were you saying over the phone?” I asked.
“I was only pulling your legs” She laughed and i felt relieved.
“I thought you were probably going crazy” i said and we both laughed.
She handed me the glass cup of orange juice and placed the tray on the table.
I gulped down half of it.
“Do you care for some juice?” I asked stretching the remaining half to her.
“No thanks”
“Or should i call Kim to bring yours?” I asked feeling she might not want to drink from the same glass cup.
“No I’m okay,i just finished taking burger and a juice” she said.
“Oh.. okay” I gulped down the remaining juice and started showing her some things on my phone.
I wanted to tell her that we should just go to the living room but i don’t want her to feel i had anything bad in mind.
I suddenly yawned…it felt strange cause i didn’t felt like sleeping before now.
I shrugged off the yawn and we both continued watching the video.
I yawned again and noticed my eyes were starting to get blurry.
I felt dizzy and couldn’t get hold of myself anymore.
I dropped my phone and kept yawning.
I laid back on the bed and closed my eyes but i noticed i wasn’t feeling asleep anymore,I..i…was feeling strong down there.
I dimly saw Ellen pulled off her clothes and got on top of me.
She pulled off the shorts i was wearing and started r.. riding me.
It felt sweet even if that wasn’t the first time I’m experiencing this but all i knew was that i wasn’t in my right sense.
She placed my hands on her b**bs and i began handling it.
She kept riding me and i turned her over and began….
I released into her and dropped tiredly on the bed,then that sleeping feeling returned.
I yawned and slept off.
***
I woke up in the evening and sat up on the bed.
I remembered what happened earlier and nearly bit myself for it.
I was so pissed,i never wanted to have anything to do with Ellen before three months is complete.
I realised she added something to my juice and the worst part of it was that i couldn’t find my necklace anymore.
She has gone with it.
Tears poured out of my eyes and i felt like killing myself.
End of flashback
“Wow!” Kelly exclaimed after i finished narrating everything.
“I..I’m..i don’t know what to do right now” I sighed.
“It’s okay since you didn’t force your way with her,she willingly gave herself to you” Kelly said.
“Yeah,she drugged my juice. Normally I would never have done that” I said.
“Is it your first time?” Kelly asked.
“No it’s not,i had sex with two girls at my house party but with Ellen..it just doesn’t feel right,I’m not feeling happy about it,i feel hurt and bad” I said sincerely.
“You don’t have to feel that way,once you get to school..you discuss it with her,she wanted it to happen,that was the reason she drugged your drink” Kelly said.
“Of course. But I’m gonna pull out her eyes once we get to school” I threatened.
Kelly laughed…”Of course you can’t do that, once you get to school. Just talk things straight” He said.
“I will but i can’t just believe it,i never imagined it” I said.
“You keep complaining as if you didn’t enjoy it” Kelly said and started grinning.
“Of course i did but … Wait! Why are you grinning?” I asked and he suddenly bursted out laughing.
I tried to hold my laughter as i hit him but i couldn’t.
We ended up laughing together..
“Kelly stop making me laugh over such matter” I said holding back the threatening laughter.
He twisted his mouth and we laughed again.
“What you should be concerned about is your necklace” he said and i nodded.
“I’m not even concerned about that cause i know it’s with her..she wants to wear it today but didn’t know how to tell me about it” I said.
“Yeah… that’s right cause there’s no other reason for her to tell you not to wear your necklace today” he said.
“Do you know what surprises me about that necklace?” I asked.
“What?”
“You know once water touches accessories,it begins to rust but instead of that necklace to rust,it’s gonna shine brighter” I said.
“Really?” Kelly asked in surprise.
“Yeah..I’m gonna show you when i get it back from Ellen” I said.
“Can’t wait…we are running late” He said and i glanced at the wall clock.
“Help me get my shoes from the rack” i said and stretched on the bed.
“Don’t tell me that sex weakened you?” Kelly teased.
I laughed and smacked his head.
He got up and helped me with my shoes.
I quickly slipped my feet into it and got up.
I walked to the shelf and drew out a comb.
I combed my hair and i saw Kelly through the mirror already picking his backpack.
“I’m gonna talk to Tammy today” He said and i sighed.
Mara doesn’t look interested but he can try his luck today,her mind might have softened.
“Okay..i hope she agrees” i said.
“This time…I’m gonna make sure she considers my request. I love her so much” he said with a little bit of sadness.
I felt sorry for him.
“She will! Just keep pressing it..she’s gonna give in one day,i will help you call her to the garden during break” i said.
“Thanks buddy” he smiled.
I dropped the comb and also picked my backpack.
I dropped my iPod into it before hanging it over my shoulders.
“Let’s go buddy” I said and we both walked out of my room.
“Tell Max to stay back,Tina is gonna drop us” he said.
“Okay”
We entered the class and walked to our seats.
My eyes went straight to Ellen,she bowed her head when our eyes locked.
She’s gonna explain the reason she did that yesterday.
“Hi Bryan” Laura called as i passed her desk.
My nerves relaxed and i stopped to take a good look at her.
She looks more beautiful this morning,I’m always intrigued about that beautiful blue eyes.
I don’t know how this girl always make me feel.
I’m gonna have time to decipher that feeling once i end things with Ellen.
“Hi Laura,how are you?” I asked.
“I’m fine” She smiled and my heart melted.
She was surprised but happy when i touched her cheeks before walking to my seat.
Kelly was already seated exchanging greetings with Mara.
I dropped my backpack but didn’t sit.
“Hi Bryan” Mara smiled.
“Hey bestie.. what’s up?” I asked.
“I’m fine”
“Ellen come with me” I said and started walking out of the classroom.
I didn’t look back to know if she followed me or not.
I turned when i got to the hallway and i was a bit glad she followed me.
She got to me and i held her neck against the wall..my anger rising.
“What was that stunt you pulled up yesterday” I said releasing her neck a bit.
“I..I’m sorry” She murmured.
“What the hell did you added to my juice?” I asked.
“S.s..sedative mix” She said with a sigh.
“Why did you do that?” I asked.
“Im sorry i did that,i just wanted to have something to remember you for after three months” She said.
“Oh.. really? is that the way to go about it?” I asked.
“Y..you are hurting me” She said and i released my hold on her neck.
I brushed down my hair with my fingers and let out a breath.
“I’m sorry,if i had told you about it..you wouldn’t have conceded” She said.
“Of course i wouldn’t have! I can’t believe i..i had sex with you” I said.
“Well…the deed is already done” She said boldly.
I restrained myself from yelling out loud.
“Where’s my necklace?” I asked.
“It’s in your drawer” She said.
“Really?”
“Yeah…I kept it there” She said..
“Okay” I said and walked back to class.
Mara’s POV
Wow!
Did he called her out to end things with her just because of me.
That will be great.
Maybe he couldn’t resist me anymore and think he has to confess his feelings to me fast.
I will be so glad.
He walked back into the classroom and headed straight to his seat which is beside mine.
He sat down and breathed out.
“Are you okay?” I asked.
“Sure” he said.
“Can you go wait for me in the garden after lunch break?” He asked and i felt my breathing cease for a moment.
“Y-yes” I said.
“Okay thanks” he smiled.
Finally!
My thoughts were right!
But he shouldn’t have ended things so soon with Ellen just because of me.
Anyways…I’m so happy.
It took all the strength in me not to jump high into the sky.
I couldn’t help but grin…
Ellen walked into the class and i felt so sorry for her.
She isn’t looking so great.
Bryan should have waited for three months before breaking up with her.
I hope she will understand and just let it go.
She sat down.
“Mara” She called and i quickly turned to face her.
“Huh?” I asked.
“Hmm…I want to ask for something from you and I will so glad if you can do it for me” she said.
Im ready to grant her anything cause she’s heartbroken right now.
“I will do it Ellen,I’m gonna do anything” I said.
“I want you to let me wear that necklace till school’s over” She said.
“Mara you must not give her!” Laura suddenly yelled making me flinch.
“No..she’s just asking to wear my necklace till school’s over” i said, thinking she misheard Ellen.
“Yeah! I heard her clearly but Mara you mustn’t give her that necklace” Laura said to my surprise.
“What the hell is your problem,does the necklace belongs to you” Ellen yelled.
“Laura,why shouldn’t i give her?” I asked.
“Don’t just give her,why is she so concerned on that necklace! She borrowed it yesterday, same thing today! What do you want to use the necklace for? If you want a necklace..there are so many,why are you insisting on this same necklace and last time i checked you are not a fan of fallen angels” Laura said.
I smiled…”is that the reason you told me not to give her? but i told you Ellen values accessories a lot..it’s just till school’s over so i don’t see anything bad” I said and began unhooking my necklace.
“Seriously Mara you wanna give her?” Laura asked.
“Why not?” I asked and wore the necklace round Ellen’s neck.
I have my reasons.
“Face your desk” Ellen said to Laura who sighed and turned hesitantly.
I’m not bothered about these two..I’m bothered about Bryan,i can’t wait till lunch break is over..I’m gonna jump to the garden.
At last!
Laura’s POV
Im not usually mean to people but i don’t know the reason i don’t like Ellen.
I keep having this strange feeling about her.
I don’t know why Mara is so soft hearted.
How couldn’t she suspect that Ellen has other plans about that necklace.
She shouldn’t have given her so easily!
I began to suspect her when then reconciled yesterday and the next thing she asked for was the necklace.
Who does that!
She even borrowed it today…it’s not about liking accessories,even if she likes accessories. She should have hers and not borrow others.
I just hope Mara is safe,I’m starting to have a bad feeling.
I glanced back to look at Mara but my gaze caught with Bryan’s.
It held on for a while before i removed my gaze.
Why do my stomach feels funny whenever my gaze lock with his.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 6:44pm On Nov 21, 2019
I’ve always had a crush on Bryan so as other girls in class but it wasn’t as intense as this.
What I’m feeling now is totally a different thing.
My heart seems not to rest anytime Bryan is around me.
And i kinda kept thinking about him.
I’ve never felt like this in years.
Mr Tommy walked into the classroom.
“Good morning class”
“Good morning Mr Tommy” we chorused.
Lunch break
We walked into the cafeteria and sat on our favorite spot.
Bryan and Kelly went to order our lunch leaving Mara,Ellen and i at the table.
No one said anything but i kept a close watch on Ellen making her uncomfortable .
“Hey why are you staring at me like you want a death wish!” She yelled.
She loves yelling at trivial issues and that’s so childish.
I ignored her and faced Mara..
“Mara don’t forget to collect your necklace once school’s over” I said.
“Of course i won’t” Mara said.
“You are truly a lucky fans, this necklace surely costs a lot” i said to Mara.
“Yeah..it landed right on my feet when it was thrown” She said.
“Wow!”
“Do you even know the interesting part?” She asked.
“What?” I asked.
“Once water touches it,instead of it to rust..it’s gonna shine brighter” she said.
“Really!” Ellen exclaimed loudly.
“Yeah…I was also surprised” Mara said.
“You have to cherish it, don’t just give it out to people” I said indirectly referring to Ellen.
“Of course,i cherish it a lot” She said.
Kelly and Bryan returned with our lunch.
They placed it in front of each person and went to carry theirs and i noticed Mara is kinda avoiding Kelly.
What’s up with the both of them?
We all started eating when Kelly and Bryan settled down.
“Laura’s blue eyes is so beautiful” i suddenly heard Bryan said making me gasp and at the same time blush.
I glanced up and saw everyone of them looking at me.
“Yeah it is” Kelly said and continued eating his meal.
“Thanks” I muttered and continued eating.
I was still surprised Bryan could utter that.
I didn’t expect it but i felt so glad.
He surprised me more when he picked a pizza roll from my dish.
I looked at him and he smiled brightly making my heart race twice.
I smiled shyly and continued eating.
We were done eating in some minutes,Mara stood up and left the table abruptly.
“Mara where are you going to?” I asked.
“I will be right back” She said.
“Okay” I muttered.
She walked out of the cafeteria and i saw Kelly also stood up.
He winked at Bryan and followed her.
“Bryan what’s going on between Kelly and Mara?” I asked.
He smiled…”Actually Kelly loves Mara”
“What!” Ellen screamed making everyone turn to look at our table.

.
“What’s wrong,why did you screamed that way?” I asked.
“And why do you care!” She yelled.
I shook my head and turned back to Bryan.
“Really?” I smiled.
“Yeah but Mara isn’t returning the feeling so he went to the garden to talk it out with her” he said.
“Wow! I hope she returns the feeling, Kelly is the right guy for her” i said.
“Yeah he is,i will be right back” Bryan said and also walked away from the table.
I sighed as i watched him go …
I turned back to the table.
What!
Don’t tell me I’m left alone with this bitch!
Mara’s POV
I got to the garden and decided whether to sit or stand.
I decided to stand, feeling so happy within me.
I traced my fingers on the flowers but stopped when i heard footsteps.
I smiled and turned expecting to see Bryan but saw Kelly.
My smile faded and i turned to leave.
He grabbed me back,i shrugged his hands off my back but stood still.
“Tammy, please just consider my request. I swear down I’m never gonna leave you, please Tammy” I said.
I turned to him;
“Kelly,i don’t love you so i can’t date you” i said.
“You don’t have to love me,me loving you is enough” he said.
“I can’t get into a relationship where i don’t love my partner…if you don’t love me, would you have confessed your feelings to me” i said.
“I know but please you will get to love me,just accept my request” he pleaded.
I shook my head “Im sorry Kelly..I’m tired of repeating this but i don’t love you… there are many beautiful girls in class that will be willing to be your girlfriend, it’s not a must im the one” i said getting pissed already.
“It’s a must Tammy,it’s a must for me to date you” he said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Because i love you” he said.
“But i don’t love you” i said.
“You will get to love me” he said.
“I can’t get to love you cause my heart doesn’t belong to you” i said and started walking away.
“Who does your heart belongs to?” He asked.
I guess it’s time to talk.
“My heart belongs to Bryan” i said and heard him gasp.
I smiled and continued…”I developed feelings for Bryan since i was in grade 6,i love Bryan so much and he’s the only one i wish to date..he’s the only one with the key to my heart…I just can’t stop loving him” I said.
“Mara! You love me?”
I turned immediately and saw Bryan standing beside Kelly.
He heard all i said.
My heart sped beyond control..
“Yes Bryan,i love you and will always love you” i said.
“But Mara,i don’t love you!” He said and i felt my heart shatter.
Tears gathered in my eyes.
“I only thought of you as a best friend,i never had any sort of feelings for you,i never imagined you are in love with me,i never thought of you in that aspect..Mara I’m shocked!” He said and this time tears were starting to roll down my cheeks.
I felt so hurt..i could die any minute from now.
“It’s better you accept Kelly’s request cause i don’t love you in that aspect,my heart belongs to someone else..I’m sorry” he said and i suddenly felt cold before slumping to the grass.

Ellen’s POV cont’d
“I’m sorry,she has less than a year to live” Doc Mart said.
What!!!
Everyone bursted into tears, shouting and wailing loudly.
I stood in shock without saying anything.
Mara has less than a year to live!
Ma..ra … I bursted into my own tears feeling guilty.
I’m the cause of all this!
I pushed that innocent girl into all this.
“Doc please help me,is there anything else we can do.. Mara must not die” Mrs Weston cried.
“There is nothing we can do Mrs Weston,if there’s anything we can do..I will gladly do it because i also don’t want Tamara dead but it gone beyond medical control…all we just have to do is resign to fate…make sure you give her all the care and love before the year elapse” he said
“Can we go see her?” Liam asked through gritted teeth.
“Of course.. she’s awake” Doc Mart said.
Everyone walked out of the office heading to Mara’s ward.
Everyone was buried in sorrow,no one talked to the other and we were all weeping like babies.
*”*”*
We got to Mara’s door and no one wants to open the door,we we were all acting like she’s already dead.
The door was pushed open by Bryan and we all staggered in.
Mara was laying on the bed with a drip connected to her arm.
She’s already in the hospital’s wear and I’m glad there’s no blood stain on it.
Her body had returned to normal and the necklace stood firmly on her neck.
Her eyes are opened but she wasn’t looking in our direction,she was sobbing quietly.
She shifted her neck and sighted us.
She started crying louder and beckoned for us to get closer.
We all rushed to her..
“Mum am i gonna die?” She asked in tears holding her mum’s and Liam’s hand.
“No you are not gonna die angel..you are not gonna die” her mum cried.
She looked up at everyone’s face one after the other but her gaze lingered on my face and i felt so bad.
“Bryan said he doesn’t love me but i love him so much” She said softly, surprising everyone.
I can’t believe she can still think of Bryan even in this condition…the love must be really deep.
Everyone looked at Bryan who bowed his head.
“Bryan why don’t you love her!” His mum yelled at him.
“I..i love her but i don’t have feelings for her..I’m sorry Mara” he cried.
“Is that the reason you were vomiting blood, Mara i told you Bryan doesn’t love you!” Liam yelled.
“But i love him” She said.
“I love you too” Bryan said.
“You don’t love me like i want” She cried.
“I wish i can” Bryan said.
Everyone stood back and looked at them.
“I planned on giving my first kiss to you” She said surprising everyone again.
Bryan looked at her, speechless so as everyone.
“I’m sorry Mara,I’m going to date you,I’m gonna do everything that will make you happy” He said.
“Don’t date me anymore Bryan,i know how it feels to be in a relationship with someone you don’t love. Did you see the reason why i was rejecting Kelly, because i don’t love him….just go for the person you love cause even if we date it’s not gonna last…i will be gone soon” She said and everyone fought back tears.
Laura and Mara’s mum didn’t fought back theirs.
It poured down on their cheeks which prompted mine to also pour.
“I’m sorry Mara,i wish you had told me earlier..we would have worked things out” Bryan cried.
“I was waiting for you to confess your feelings to me,i never knew you didn’t love me” She said.
“I love you Mara,i love you so much” Bryan said.
“Will you do something for me?” She asked.
“What? I will do anything for you” Bryan said.
“Let me have my first kiss with you like I’ve always imagined” She said.
Bryan didn’t hesitate before bending to kiss her.
The kiss was so deep and long and i was starting to feel like i was the one being kissed.
The forever kiss finally stopped and I’ve never seen Mara so happy.
Bryan smiled and helped her sit up on the bed.
“Mum i feel whole again” She said happily.
Her mum smiled sadly…”I’m glad”
No one uttered anything and we kept looking at one another.
“Why are you guys not saying anything. Is anything wrong? I know i have less than a year to live” She said.
Everyone stared at her in surprise.
She knew!
“Yes… Mara i don’t want to lose you” her mum cried.
“I also don’t want to die” She cried.
“I have a confession to make but that will be after I’m discharged,i know you will all be pissed at me” She said and stared at me.
My heart beat faster and i know she’s gonna confess about Quilah..I’m relieved she will be safe because of that necklace on her neck cause no one confesses about Quilah and live.
I think i will also make my confession.
“Tam, leave the confession part. let’s find what we are gonna do about you..i don’t want to lose you..” Liam cried.
“I don’t want to lose you too Liam..I love you” she cried.
It’s getting dark and we were still with Mara in the ward.
Mum has called and i told her of the situation,she promised to come first thing tomorrow morning same as Laura’s mum and Kelly’s mum.
We all decided to be happy,when Mara complained about our mood.
The doctor came to check her drip.
He changed it and told us to go wait at the reception but no one answered him.
She seems so happy after Bryan’s kiss and she has been holding his hand since then.
He’s the only one seated on the bed beside her.
“I’m feeling hungry” She pouted and my stomach rumbled.
I noticed everyone also touched their stomach.
No one has eaten anything since we were here and it’s night already.
“What do you wanna eat,I’m gonna order it for you” Liam said.
“No.. don’t order it,i want you to go make it for me and i guess everyone here is also hungry..so make a very largeeee portion” she said dramatically and we all smiled.
“I’m going to go make it, Liam is not very good at making large portion…he might end up messing the food” Mara’s mum said and stood up.
“I’m gonna come with you” Bryan’s mum said, standing up after Mara’s.
“I want to eat casserole” Mara said and her mum nodded.
“Com’on Mum,i don’t want you crying,i don’t want anyone crying…your tears is gonna make me believe what the doctor said. I won’t die so no one should cry okay?” She said and everyone nodded.
Her mum pecked her before walking out of the ward with Bryan’s Mum and i know she’s gonna burst into tears when she get to the reception.
Her mum is so emotional,just like Mara.
“Kelly,come sit beside me” She said and he smiled and quickly jumped beside her on the bed opposite Bryan.
He held her hand and smiled happily.
“Now this is how happy i want everyone to be,you all should have your seat.. you’ve been standing for so long” She said and we sat slowly on the available chairs.
We are the ones who should be making her happy but she’s trying to make us happy instead. Her personality is the best and i regret and will forever regret taking her to Quilah.
I know they will all pounce on me once i confess but i will do it.
I’m gonna say everything once Mara is discharged.
“Seriously,i don’t like this mood.. y’all shouldn’t believe what doc Mart said..I’m not gonna die. I’m gonna start crying if you all keep up with this mood” She said and everyone quickly forced a smile.
“Good boys and girls” She smiled almost making me laugh.
“I’m not a boy” Kelly said.
“Me too” Bryan said.
“Me three” Liam said and we all laughed.
It felt so good to laugh,my sadness has erased completely and i was also trying not to believe what Doc Mart said but it was impossible.
I know it’s true.
“Tam” Liam called.
“Yes Liam”
“Doc Mart said you took a strange portion,what portion is that?” He asked.
“Really?” She asked and glanced at me before glancing back to Liam.
“Yeah”
“Uhm…I’m gonna say everything once I’m discharged” she said.
“Okay! But i also don’t believe what doc Mart said or who else believed?” Liam asked.
“I don’t” We chorused and smiled.
“Good!” Mara exclaimed and yawned.
“You wanna sleep?” Bryan asked.
“I think so” she yawned again.
He laid her properly on the bed, avoiding to touch the drip.
“You both shouldn’t stand up or I’m gonna feel cold” she said as Kelly drew the bed cover closer to her.
They both nodded and she slept off so fast.
Laura placed her head on her laps and i thought she also wanted to sleep not until i heard her sobbing.
It got more loud which also triggered mine.
We both cried quietly and my eyes were starting to ache.
Kelly joined us then Bryan and Liam.
We all cried with our gaze on Mara who was sleeping peacefully on the bed.
We might not see her in the next year to come.
Mrs Weston and Mrs Shaw returned with dinner.
Their eyes looked puffy and its obvious they had cried.
Casserole was served round and Mara was waken by a light tap.
She opened her eyes and smiled.
Bryan helped her sit up and placed her plate of casserole beside her on the bed.
“Why’s everyone not eating? I’m not also gonna eat” She said and made to lay down back.
Everyone started eating and i must confess the casserole tastes real good.
“Who is gonna feed me?” She asked.
“I will” We chorused.
She smiled “I was joking,i can eat well with my left hand”
She started eating and everyone watched her.
She turned to face us and we all continued eating.
“Kelly please pass me a cup of water” She said.
Kelly sprouted and quickly poured her a cup of water.
He handed it to her and she collected it and gulped it down.
She placed the remaining beside her and continued eating.
We all finished eating and i checked the wall clock.
{8:30pm}
Wow!
Bryan, Kelly,Laura and i were still in our uniform.
I sighed..our backpacks is also still in school .
Thank goodness we all brought our phones along.
“I’m gonna tell Max to go drop you all,you’ve been here all day” Mara’s mum said.
“No Mum..I’m gonna stay here with Mara” Bryan said.
“Me also” Kelly said.
“Me too” I said.
“Me too” Laura said.
She smiled..”I know you all wanna stay with her but it’s wise you all go freshen up and sleep then you will come back tomorrow morning” She said.
“Yeah…you guys should go freshen up,you are stinking” Mara said jokingly and covered her nose.
We all smiled…
“Max is waiting outside,i already told him” She said.
We pecked Mara one after the other before walking out of the ward.
Bryan Mum also followed us.
We got outside and we all entered the Lexus.
Max ignited the engine and drove out of the hospital.
I was the last person he dropped.
“Good night Max” I said alighting from the car.
“Night Ellen” he said.
I closed the car door and walked to the gate.
I knocked on the gate and heard Max drove off.
The gate was opened and i entered and headed into the house after greeting the gatekeeper.
I rang the doorbell twice before mum came to open the door.
She’s already in her nightwear.
I stepped in with a tired yawn.
“OMG Ellen, how’s Mara?” She asked worriedly.
“She’s getting better” I said trying not to tell her the bad news.
She’s gonna scream her head off the entire building.
Mum loves Mara a lot and she and dad has been asking me about her since we were not in talking terms.
“Thank goodness,i thought you were gonna spend the night with her” She said.
“Yeah but we are going back tomorrow morning” i said.
“Okay,I’m gonna go with you tomorrow, should i call the maid to quickly make you something to eat?” Mum asked.
“No I’ve eaten dinner at the hospital,i just need to freshen up and sleep..did dad called?” i asked.
“Yes but i didn’t tell him about Mara,he’s gonna get worried” She said and i nodded.
“Good night Mum” I said and started climbing the stairs to my room.
“Night sweetheart” Mum called after me.
I stepped into my room and dropped on the bed.
I yawned not feeling like freshening up but just sleep right away but i can’t.
I stood up and quickly pulled off my school wears.
I dropped it at a corner and picked my towel.
I walked into the bathroom, determined to have brush and have a quick shower.
I walked back to my room after freshening up.
I was expecting to see Quilah but i didn’t and i remembered Bryan’s necklace is in on my shelf. I lied to him that it was in his drawer.
I put on my pajamas and packed my hair in a bun.
I picked up the necklace and quickly wore it round my neck.
Good for her!
She won’t be able to access me and i can sleep soundly.
I jumped on the bed and drew the blanket closer to my chest.
I yawned once more before drifting to Dreamland..
Mara’s POV
I started sobbing quietly after i was sure Liam and Mum has slept off.
Liam was sleeping on the bed beside me while mum slept on the couch.
I know i will be gone in less than a year just as Doc Mart has said.
He’s right!
He’s perfectly right!
Quilah also told me that the moment i was vomiting blood in the garden.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 10:24am On Nov 27, 2019
“I SHOULD KILL YOU IMMEDIATELY BUT IM GONNA MAKE YOU LIVE FOR A YEAR BECAUSE IT SEEMS YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU SO MUCH” She had said.
It’s so sad knowing I’m gonna die soon but i just had to reassure everyone.
They seems so worried about me especially Mum and Liam who i know will never cope with
my departure.
There is still 12 months for me to live and I’m glad I’ll be spending more time with my friends and family.
To be sincere;i don’t want to die but i caused it myself.
If only i had been contented with the way i was.
If only i didn’t get to meet Quilah.
My stomach is filled with regret and I wish all this was just a dream but no! It’s real.
Bryan’s kiss healed me and made me feel whole,it was better than i imagined.
I will never force him to date him,i know his heart is somewhere else.. forcing him to date me is just like a punishment.
I don’t want to be a burden to anyone while I’m still alive.
I kept imagining how mum and Liam will feel after learning the truth of my sudden transformation.
I had lied that Ellen made me work out almost everyday while we were at her granny’s house.
I spent one month with Ellen to make it look more true.
Mum and Liam was so surprised to see me change,they kept asking if it was just work out and i assured them that it is.
They trusted me so they stopped bothering me about it again.
What will happen if they found out that everything was all lies!
Liam hates been lied to and this time he’s not gonna trust me ever again.
I hope they will both forgive me but it’s gonn be a hard task.
They trusted me but i betrayed their trust.
Its past midnight and i haven’t stopped sobbing.
This is just so sad!
I saw Liam stirred and i quickly cleaned my eyes and closed my eyes pretending to be asleep.
I felt his hand stroke my hair and heard him sniffle.
He’s crying.
My tears flowed freely through closed eyes,the bedspread was there to prevent him from seeing my face.
I dozed off in tears…
{Next morning}
I woke up to the chattering in the ward.
I yawned and opened my eyes more clearly.
I saw Bryan, Kelly, Ellen and Laura with their mum.
I’m glad the ward is wide enough to accommodate every person.
I didn’t see Liam but i saw Mum chatting sadly with other’s.
“She’s awake” Bryan gasped and they all rushed to me.
I smiled at everyone of them.
“Good morning Mara” they chorused.
“How are you feeling?” They chorused.
Their mums looked at me brightly holding and touching my cheeks except Bryan’s mum who stood back sadly with my mum.
I guess they’ve not been told that I have a year to live.
“Good morning to you all, thanks for coming” I said and they all took turns in pecking my cheeks.
Kelly’s peck lingered and i smiled knowing there’s at least someone who has feelings for me.. it’s just so sad i don’t feel the same way for him.
“There’s a bad news” Mum said.
Those who didn’t know turned to look at her.
“Mara has less than a year to live” She said.
They screamed and cried turning back to look at me abruptly.
“Oh..my..God,Mara no!” Ellen’s Mum cried holding on to me tightly.
“So sorry” Laura’s mum dabbed her teary face with an handkerchief.
“What! This is just so sad” Kelly’s mum muttered.
They all looked at me with pity and i felt so uncomfortable restraining myself not to cry along with them.
“Won’t you guys go to school?” Mum asked referring to my friends.
They all shook their heads.
“No! You must all go to school,you are gonna miss your classes” Mum said worriedly.
“No Mum,we will make up for the classes,we want to stay with Mara” Bryan said and the rest nodded in affirmative.
Mum sighed.
The ward was silent except for the little sobs in the background.
“Where’s Liam?” I asked mum.
“He went home to freshen up and prepare your breakfast” She said.
I nodded.
I sat up with a smile…i can move freely now,the drip has been removed.
Bryan and Kelly sat with me on the bed like they did yesterday.
I wasn’t comfortable with the awkward silence.
I was about to speak when Doc Mart walked in with two nurses behind him.
“Good morning everyone” he greeted.
“Good morning”
“You will all have to go wait at the reception,she has to freshen up and we will be moving her to a normal ward cause she seems very okay now and she will be discharged in few day” he said.
I watched everyone walked out and i was left with the two nurses.
I stood up and they both led me to the bathroom.
I was sitting on the well made bed in my new ward.
I like the scent here, it’s not as wide as the former ward but it was still able to contain every one of us.
I’ve been given an injection, it was so painful i nearly chop off the hand of the nurse who stared at me in awe.
I’m no longer in the hospital wear..I don’t like it anyways.
I’m now clad in a pink t-shirt with a pair of blue jeans.
I felt so freshened up and I’m glad I’m feeling a whole lot better.
Everyone is seated on the plastic chairs in the the ward,their gazes directed to me.
I wonder what will be going on in their minds.
I sighed and waited for Liam to be back.
He’s not yet back and I’ve missed him.
I grinned when he walked into the ward with a breakfast basket.
His phone was placed on his ear and it’s obvious he’s on a call.
He bowed in greetings to everyone and they responded,he dropped the basket beside my bed and dragged my cheeks playfully.
“Reiya wants to speak to you” he said and handed his phone to me.
“Wow” I exclaimed before placing it on my ear.
Hi Reiya.
Darling,how are you?” She asked and her voice sounds pretty.
I’m fine Reiya and you?
I’m not so happy,i heard about your condition and damn! I felt so sorry for you.
Thanks Reiya.
I’m gonna come check on you in Paris once I’m less busy,i should be coming right away but there are loads of work on my desk.
Wow! Thanks Reiya,i will be looking forward to seeing you.
Me too darling, don’t let what the doctor said to bother you huh? He isn’t God,only God takes life okay?” She said and i felt so relieved..
It’s true,only God gives and takes life.
Okay Reiya, thanks so much..you actually lifted my spirit with this speech of yours.
Wow! You talk so intelligently and I’m glad i made you feel better with my speech…I have to go now darling.
Thanks Reiya.
Take care Tamara… Bye.
I sighed happily…
“Everyone Reiya just said something we all didn’t thought about” I said.
“What?” Everyone asked.
“Only God gives and takes life,it doesn’t matter what the doctor says,he’s only speaking in accordance to his profession…let’s all be happy please” i said and was glad each one of them smiled.
The bad tension has relieved everyone and their faces brightened,they agreed to what Reiya said but there’s still a hint of sadness on their faces.
I agree to what Reiya said but i know and I’m very sure i will be gone soon.
That’s the fact but i can’t tell anyone that.
“Good morning everyone” Liam smiled.
“Good morning Liam”
“Should i order breakfast for everyone?” He asked.
“No”
“We all had breakfast before coming” They chorused.
“Okay” he said and began dishing out my breakfast.
It was hamburger and coffee.
I started eating glancing at everyone one after the other.
“Bryan come take a bite,you look like you want some” I said and they all giggled.
He stood up and walked to me,he took a little bite and stole my coffee before returning back to his chair.
“Kelly,come take a bite. You might swear at me if i don’t give you” I said and made them giggle again.
Kelly walked to me and took a large bite.
I eyed him and he laughed before walking back to his seat.
“Hmm…Ellen, your face look like it might burst open anytime soon if i don’t give, come have a bite” I said and they all laughed.
Ellen walked to me and took a huge bite.
I hit her head and she laughed before returning to her seat.
“Lauuuura…come have a bite,i wouldn’t want you to cry over this hamburger”
We all giggled and Laura jumped to her feet.
She took a bite from the hamburger but did not return to her seat.
She said down beside me on the bed and passed me my coffee when i was done eating.
“Liam” I called.
“Huh?” He asked.
“Reiya said she’s gonna visit me anytime soon” I smiled.
“Ohh.. really?”
“Yeah”
“She actually cried over the phone when i told her of your condition” Liam said.
“Wow! She’s so nice,her voice sounds so pretty and i can’t wait to meet her in person” I said.
“Guess what?” Liam whispered.
“What?” I asked.
“She has broken up with that monster!” He whispered to me happily.
“Wow! That gives you a chance” I grinned.
“Of course but i wish you weren’t in this condition” he said sadly.
I held his hand…”it’s okay Liam,I’m not gonna die”
“Doc Mart said the strange portion you took has spread all over your system making your chance of survival shorter,Mara this is painful but we all have to accept it…Tam you have less than a year to live and we are all pretending everything is fine… everything is not fine! My sister will gone soon! I’ll no longer have a playmate! This is just so sad!” Liam said in tears and everyone bursted into tears including me..I couldn’t hold my tears back anymore.
I let it flow along with everyone’s.
Few days later
Ellen’s POV
I walked out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel.
I gotta dress fast and leave for Mara’s place.
She was discharged yesterday and requested to see everyone today.
I know it’s because of the confession she’s about to make and I’m also ready to make mine.
We all didn’t go to school during the time Mara was in the hospital,we only went to pick our backpacks and the whole class bombarded us with questions.
More stories @ www.chorusman.com
.
I chuckled when i remembered how the gatekeeper glared at Laura and i.
Ive decided I’m gonna confess everything,i don’t care about what might happen.
The necklace has been keeping me safe from Quilah but i returned it to Bryan yesterday,he saw it on my neck and requested to have it.
I gave it to him sadly knowing my only source of protection is gone.
Quilah will have been waiting desperately to access me and now that the necklace is gone,i was expecting to see her in my bedroom as usual but she didn’t turn up and i was so glad she didn’t.
I have to dress up real quick before she appears.
I opened my wardrobe and selected yellow joggers with black singlet and yellow denim jacket.
I opened my undies box and selected the one i want.
I quickly dropped everything on the bed and started drying my body.
I applied body lotion and wore my undies,the joggers and singlet followed.
I hanged the jacket on the chair,im gonna put on once I’m set to leave.
I sat on my dressing stool and unpacked my hair.
It loosened on my shoulders and i quickly thought of a style to make.
Pontsplait!
I’ve never made it before but i could still remember vividly how Mara explained it to the class.
I cleaned my tears knowing I’m gonna lose my best friend soon.
I picked up a comb and combed my hair thoroughly before splitting it into two,then braided the tip and curl it with my fingers.
I got it!
Its so beautiful.
I stood up and selected a black footwear from my shoe rack.
I slide my feet into it and picked my jacket.
I quickly wore it, opened my drawer and brought out some dollar bills.
I arranged it neatly and put it in my pocket.
I took my phone from the shelf and started heading out of my room.
I was expecting Quilah to pop up behind me but she didn’t.
I quickly descended the stairs..
The living room was empty, Mum has gone to work,dad hasn’t returned from his business trip.
“Good morning” I greeted the maid.
“Good morning Ellen,your breakfast is ready” She said.
I couldn’t sit and eat breakfast due to the fear of Quilah.
“I’m just gonna take coffee ” I said and walked to the dinning table.
I gulped down half of the coffee and was about to leave but the pancake looks tantalising and i quickly stole from bite before hurrying out of the house,but i suddenly sensed Quilah’s presence.
I shifted back in fear.
Quilah’s POV
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh….
“Kimptuhd I’m not sparing her!” I yelled.
I was in my cave stirring a portion,i plan to go meet Ellen Blaise after im done with it.
How dare she disobey me!
I sensed kimpthud presence and turned from the large portion i was making.
I sighed softly knowing what he came for.
“Hi Quilah” he said gently, gathered his white robe before sitting on my magical couch.
“What did you came here for kimpthud?” I asked.
“Quilah,you know what i came here for” He said.
“Of course! but it will be better if you talk” i said and continued stirring the portion.
Dangerous smoke emanated from it and i know kimpthud would have been dead by now if he wasn’t a powerful being.
“I want you to spare Tamara Weston and Ellen Blaise” he said.
“Kimpthud I’m not sparing any of them” I turned to him.
Starting to get pissed.
“But why do you do favor and collect something bigger in return?” He asked.
I laughed…”That’s the way my fore bears was and I’m not gonna depart from it.. anyone whom i do a favor must pay in large folds”
“That’s unfair!” Kimpthud yelled angrily, standing abruptly from the couch.
“They shouldn’t have come to me in the first place!” I yelled back.
“I guess you are seeing how sad their family is from your mirror?” He asked.
“I am but that doesn’t stop me from taking Tamara Weston’s life,she asked for a favor and i gladly did it for her…it’s time for her to pay back” i said.
“Does she have to pay back in this way! Quilah do you have to kill her?” Kimpthud asked starting to piss me off.
He’s just like an obstruction on every of my handwork.
I would have gladly killed him if his power wasn’t stronger than mine.
“The payback for sudden transformation is death and you know it! Kimpthud you know it! Stop obstructing my work” i said angrily.
Two birds flew out from my mouth and kimpthud dismissed them with a wave of hand.
“I wish i can save her” He said.
“You know you can’t save her,not even with anything in the world,she has gotten to the last stage of her payback and I’ve sealed it so nothing can save her” I said.
He sighed”I know you won’t kill her if you don’t want to… please Quilah just let her leave! This girl is young!”
“Of course she is! But haven’t i tried enough by giving her a year! I should have killed her right away but i had pity on her” I said and quickly whispered a short spell into the portion.
It turned green and i tasted it…
Yeah it’s ready..
“Are you making that for another person also?” He asked.
“Of course! Why else do you think I’m making it” I said and pointed to the cover of the pot.
It rose and finally landed on the pot, covering it tightly.
I faced kimpthud.
“If only the person you are making that for knows the payback, he or she wouldn’t have come to you” he said.
“Yes! And as for Tamara Weston’s issue..I’m not sparing her! If she had been contented with the way she is,she wouldn’t have gotten herself into this” I said.
“You insist on not sparing her?” Kimpthud asked.
“Yes kimpthud…I’m not sparing her” I said.
He sighed and turned to me with pleading eyes.
I didn’t fall for it this time cause I’m already determined.
“I can see you’ve made up your mind” He said.
“Yes kimpthud,if you will please leave i have to make a visit to Ellen Blaise’s house” I said.
“Ugh! You going there to hurt her?” He asked.
“No! To warn her. She disobeyed me” i said.
“Quilah it will be better if you leave those people alone…they might be the cause to your end” he said.
“Never!”
“Do you know the necklace on those two necks is capable of destroying you,once the necklace is thrown at you…you are gonna vanish forever,you are forbidden from anything from Mofidorano garden” He said.
“Yes i know…i can’t access them with that necklace on their necks so how will they be able to throw it at me.. kimpthud prepare to start leaving,i will be leaving for Ellen Blaise’s house now”
“I will leave but it’s better you desist from all these” He said.
“Go!” I said and noticed he has disappeared already.
I tap my fingers at my magic mirror and it came into view.
I saw Ellen eating her breakfast hurriedly.
I read her mind and know she’s about to go confess the whole thing.
No one confesses about me and live!
Damn! She’s about to leave,i wasn’t able to access her all this days due to the necklace with her but i know the necklace isn’t with her anymore and now she’s about running away from me.
Impossible!!
I muttered a ‘disappearing spell’ and i found myself on the air in front of Ellen Blaise’s house.
I will be invisible to everyone but her.
I waited for her to come out,the door opened and i quickly stretched my hand.
My sword appeared and i rushed at Ellen with it.
I was rooted halfway when i sensed the necklace around.
I quickly turned to see Bryan Shaw’s car driving into the compound and on his neck is the necklace.
Damn!
I shifted far to the sky and watched him come out of the car, Ellen and walked out of the house at the same time.
I saw them exchanged greetings and she quickly entered his car.
I know she sensed my presence.
I wish i had struck this sword in her tummy.
Now she’s going to confess everything and i can’t access her with that damn necklace that sonofabitch is putting on.
I laughed…”She thought she’s smart but I’ve found another way”
She should know no one is smarter than Quilah.
I will make sure she drops dead today!!

¥¥Confession¥¥
Mara’s POV
I climbed down from the stairs and headed to the living room.
Everyone is seated like i requested.
Laura, Bryan, Kelly, Ellen, Liam and Mum.
The past few days have been sad for everyone and i know my confession is gonna make it worse but i gotta do it.
“Good morning everyone”
“Morning Mara”
I sat down on a separate couch and cleared my throat
It all began like this;
Flashback
“Ellen i really love Bryan” I said sadly to her.
We were on a holiday to her granny’s place in the countryside.
We were having our lunch at the dining.
Granny was taking a nap.
“I know you love him,but why don’t you tell him,he might feel something for you too” she said.
“Feel something for me?” I laughed.
“What’s funny?” Ellen asked.
“He can’t feel anything for me” I said.
“And why is that?” Ellen asked.
“Cause IM FAT AND UGLY” I said close to tears.
I’ve always complained about the way i am.
I want to be slim and beautiful like other girls but all i gat is a useless fat body and ugly face.
“Com’on Mara,I’ve always told you not to be condemning yourself,you are beautiful the way you are. Now tell me,if Bryan thinks of you as fat and ugly then why did he became your friend” She said.
“I want more than friends. Ellen, friend is nothing compared to what I’m feeling for Bryan” I said.
“Tell him about it,even if he’s gonna reject you. You will get over it,he might also like you” She said.
“Quit the tease, who is gonna like a fat and ugly girl” I said and dropped my spoon.
I’ve always being bullied and taunted all the days of my life just because of this damn body structure.
“Mara! You are beautiful! being fat is not a disease!” Ellen said.
“Being fat is not a disease? Then why am i being laughed at anywhere i go! Why am i being bullied! Why am i being criticized!”
“We love you for who you are, don’t care about what other people think. Strive hard to attain your goals and then disappoint them. Those people who were laughing at you will end up begging on their knees…Mara love yourself the way you are” She said.
“My only goal now is to date Bryan,I’ve never loved anyone like i love him…but the courage to tell him isn’t there cause he’s probably gonna refuse a fatty” i said.
“So are you going to wait till forever before you tell him?” She asked.
“I don’t know!” I said.
“Uhg!” She sighed.
“I wish i can change into what I’ve always imagined” I said and she laughed.
“You wish you will just become a svelte all of a sudden..how’s that possible?” She asked.
“I know it’s not possible… that’s the reason it’s called a ‘wish’ ” I said.
“Okay but let be serious here, you need to tell Bryan” She said.
“I can’t”
“You will”
“He’s gonna mock me”
“He will not!”
“He will”
“I’m done with this!” I said and picked my tray of breakfast,then carried it to the kitchen.
Ellen followed me and we both wash our dishes in silence.
I dried my hands.
“El…I will be in the library” I said.
“I want to have a Walk” She said.
I would have loved to follow her but right now,im kinda pissed…if only i had the perfect body, I’ll freely go anywhere!
“Okay” I said and walked to the library.
I selected a love novel and sat down on a single chair to read.
I really love everything about this countryside.
So natural and cool.
I opened to the first page of the novel.
It looks boring.
I closed it and placed it on the plastic table.
I rested my head on the table and began thinking of Bryan like I’ve always done…
***
“Mara” Ellen shouted followed by a bang.
Ahh! I’ve slept off.
“Ellen come in,the library door is open” I shouted and she did.
She has an anxious look in her eyes.
“Ellen what happened?” I asked.
She sat quietly on the chair opposite mine.
“Mara didn’t you say you want to have a perfect figure and also a beautiful face” She said.
“Yeah…I wish to” I said.
“Hmm….I’ve seen a solution to that” She said.
I laughed “Well…you have the right to mock me”
“I’m not mocking you, Mara I’m serious!” She said with a very serious look.
“Really?” I asked almost sliding off my chair.
“Yeah”
“OMG what’s the solution?” I asked anxiously.
“I just met a goddess of wish” She said.
“A goddess of wish? Where? How?” I asked.
“I was out for my walk and i kinda disobey granny,you know granny said we shouldn’t visit that cave on the rock?” She said.
“Ellen you did!?” I asked and she nodded.
“But granny warned us not to go there!” I said.
“Yeah…I actually don’t know what pushed me there but i went there and..”
“Does that have to with my figure?” I asked.
“Of course! I went there and stood by the entrance of the cave,i heard;
I’m Quilah the great goddess of wishes.
What do you want me to do for you?
“Wow! She told you that?” I asked.
“No! There was someone in her cave at that moment” She said.
“Okay continue,so what happened?” I asked.
“The lady then said;
Quilah,i want you to grant me a wish.
My wish is to be among the wealthiest ladies in the world.
“Wow really?” I asked.
“Of course! Guess what?”
“What?” I asked.
“The lady came out of the cave with two sacks containing billions of dollars,she dragged it to her car smiling happily and then zoomed off”
“Wow! Quilah granted her her wish” I said.
“Yeah but I’m not done…when i was about leaving the entrance and running home to tell you the gist,do you know what happened?” She asked.
“What?” I asked more anxiously.
“Quilah said;
ELLEN BLAISE COME IN…
“What!! How did she know your name?” I asked in shock.
“I also didn’t know…I was shocked to my feet..I made to run but found my legs glued to the spot,i couldn’t move and i started crying.
I felt a great force push me in and i found myself standing right in front of Quilah” Ellen said and i gasp.
“How is she like?” I asked curiously.
“I was expecting to meet an ugly being but i was wrong,she’s a beautiful woman in a deep red robe,she held a white staff and can you believe this?” Ellen asked.
“What?” I asked.
“She has a white hair which is long down to her feet!” Ellen said.
“Wow! Really?” I asked.
“Yes! So let me continue;
I met myself standing right in front of her,i shivered in fear.
She gave a long throaty laughter and said;
«ELLEN BLAISE,WHY ARE YOU HERE?»
I’m s.. sorry,i was just taking a walk.
«HAVEN’T YOU BEEN WARNED NOT TO GET TO THIS CAVE?»
I’ve been warned… please I’m sorry. Just let me go,i won’t ever come here again.
«YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE COME HERE AT THE FIRST PLACE BUT YOUR INQUISITIVENESS GOT THE BETTER PART OF YOU. I QUILAH THE GREAT GODDESS OF WISHES HATES INQUISITIVENESS AND IM GONNA PUNISH YOU FOR IT.»
“OMG,did she punish you? How come you returned home unscathed?” I asked
“She didn’t punish me,i cried and begged her,she pardoned me and warned me never to come close to her cave again…I was about running out when i thought of you”
“I?” I asked curiously.
“Yeah didn’t you always say you wish to have an attractive body and face?” She asked.
“Yeah and what does that have to do with the witch!” I asked.
“Com’on she’s not a witch! She’s a goddess. So i stopped and asked her if truly she can grant any wish;
«HAHAHA…WHY DO YOU THINK IM A GODDESS OF WISH?»
Can you grant my friend’s wish?
«OF COURSE! YOUR FRIEND WANT TO HAVE A PERFECT BODY…HAHA,THAT IS THE EASIEST PART OF MY WORK!!»
“What!! Ellen,you shouldn’t have told her about me” I said in fear.
“I didn’t tell her,i only mentioned ‘my friend’ and i was surprised she got the whole detail”
“Whatever! I don’t want to have anything to do with that witch” I said.
“Mara she’s not a witch! I’ve told you she’s a goddess!”
“Are you starting to defend her? Ellen you shouldn’t have gone there in the first place!” I said.
“I know but the deed has been done” She said.
“No deed has been done! Thank goodness she made you return unscathed, that’s all. Don’t ever visit the cave again” I said.
“She told me she’s ready to grant your wish,that you are gonna become the way you’ve always wished in 24hours” Ellen said making me exclaim.
“Really!”
“Yeah”
“Uhh! I don’t want to have anything to do with that w–woman” I said.
“Com’on don’t you badly want that!”
“I don’t anymore.” I said.
“But Mara,I’ve told her about you” She said.
“That’s it! You shouldn’t have told her about me,why did you?” I asked.
“Cause i want the best for you,you’ve always complained on how bad you look. Now there is an opportunity and you are willing to allow it slip away” She said.
“Don’t get me wrong! I know I’ve always wished for that perfect figure but I’m afraid to have anything to do with that goddess” I said.
“She’s not gonna hurt you, she’s gonna grant your wish and then we’ll leave” She said.
“Is it that easy?” I asked.
“Of course! She gave that woman two sacks of dollars without requesting anything”.
“But…”
“But what? Mara just agree to this, remember we are leaving for the city by next week, don’t allow this opportunity to slip away” She said.
“I know…I’m gonna think about it” I said.
“Think about what? I told her I’m gonna come with you tomorrow”
“What! Weren’t you afraid of her?” I asked.
“No,she’s not scary”
“Well…I’m not going with you to her cave..I’m afraid” I said.
“You are gonna go with me” She said.
“Ellen I’m not going with you” I said.
“You will”
“I will not!” I said.
“You will not?” She asked.
“Yeah” I said.
“And you think you can get Bryan?” She asked making me froze.
OMG…I didn’t even think of him,he probably doesn’t want to ask me out because of the way i look.
But once i turn to an attractive thing,he’s gonna ask me out and boom!
I’m gonna become his girlfriend..
“Huh..I will think about it” I said.
“I want you to give me and answer now” She said.
“Ellen,i still need to think” I said.
“Okay! But you are going with me to the goddess tomorrow” She said.
If i want to go with her,it will be because of Bryan but i still need to think about it.
“Ellen,Mara” We both heard granny called and then walked out to meet her.
NEXT MORNING…
I had a sleepless night fantasizing on how I’m gonna turn to a slim beautiful girl,on how Bryan is gonna drool at my sight and ask me to be his girlfriend.
Should i go with Ellen to the cave?
I badly need to change from this disgusting figure.
I shouldn’t miss this opportunity.
The goddess won’t request anything from me,so why don’t i just go for it.
I should be able to do anything for love.
I stood up from the bed and quickly walked to the bathroom.
I loosened my robe and hanged it on the rail then picked my toothbrush and paste.
***. ***
I finished my morning routine and walked out of the bathroom in a blue fluffy towel.
A white smaller one wrapped round my head.
Ellen is still asleep…I’m gonna wake her up after I’m done dressing up.
I opened my cloth bag and selected a black turtle neck and a pair of blue jeans.
I opened a smaller zip and selected my undies.
We didn’t plan on spending our whole holiday day,just a week so we didn’t bother unpacking.
I dried my body with the towel and applied body lotion.
I got into my selected outfit and settled down to dry my hair.
I don’t think there’s hair dryer here,so sad i didn’t bring mine.
I used the head towel to sponge out most of the water in my hair.
I kept repeating that till my hair was better. I won’t say dry cause it’s not completely dried.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 10:25am On Nov 27, 2019
I combed it and packed it in a high ponytail.
I turned and saw Ellen sitting up on the bed.
“Hey! Sleepyhead,i was about waking you” I said.
“Thank Goodness you didn’t,i would have bitten off your hand” She said.
“Gross!” I rolled my eyes.
She laughed and stood up from the bed.
“So have you decided?” She asked.
“About what?” I asked even though i clearly know what she’s talking about.
“Like you don’t know” She said and picked her yellow towel.
She loves anything yellow but i think yellow is always flashy so i don’t really like it.
My favorite color is black.
“Okay” I sighed…”I’ve decided about it”
“And?” She asked.
“I will go for it” I said slowly.
“Wow! That’s great,you finally came to your senses” She teased.
“There’s a reason I’m doing this” I said and slide my feet into my bunny flip-flops.
“For Bryan?” She asked.
“Yeah…I’m doing this for Bryan or rather for love” i said.
“Do you love him that much?” She asked more seriously.
“If i don’t,i won’t step my feet into this. I’m crazily in love with him” I said.
“To be sincere,Mara you are starting to slim down. You look beautiful,there are a lot of people who envy you” she said.
“Envy me?” I laughed.
“Yeah…they envy you and that’s the reason they bully you” She said and i sighed not wanting to believe her.
Who would envy a fat,ugly girl? Even if I’m not very ugly but my shape is!.
“So do you still want to do this?” She asked.
“Of course,i will…I fantasized about it all night” I smiled.
“Okay,let me go have my bath…we will leave once granny is taking her afternoon nap” She whispered.
“Okay…I will be in the kitchen” i said walking out of the room.
*** ***
We sneaked out of the house after we were sure granny is deeply asleep.
I saw the cave from afar and began having second thought.
Should i still do this?
I shrugged and kept following Ellen.
We finally got to the entrance of the cave.
We both stopped and stared at each other.
I was starting to get afraid…”Ellen let’s go back home”
“No! She already knows we are here” She said.
«TAMARA WESTON AND ELLEN BLAISE COME IN»
I shook in fear as Quilah said that.
“H..how did she know my name?” I asked.
“She also knew my name yesterday” Ellen said.
“Let’s run back home” I whispered.
“We can’t!”
“Why?” I asked.
“You won’t be able to move” She said.
“Really?” I asked and gasped when i discovered it was true.
I was not able to move from the spot.
«WILL YOU BOTH COME IN OR DO YOU NEED MY HELP»
“We will come in but please free our legs” Ellen said.
«FREED»
I noticed i was able to move and then began running but i felt a sudden force pulled me back.
I opened my eyes and found myself and Ellen inside the cave right in front of the so called Quilah.
I gasped … This wasn’t i expected,she’s exceptionally beautiful in a red robe and pure white.
Her hair is long to her feet as Ellen said and her body structure is just so perfect.
If only i was as beautiful as that,i wouldn’t have come here.
SHE LAUGHED «IF ONLY YOU WERE AS BEAUTIFUL AS I,YOU WOULDN’T HAVE COME HERE»
I was shocked…how did she..did she read my mind?
«YES! I READ MINDS,BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU THINK WHILE YOU ARE WITH ME»
I nodded in fright and then stared at Ellen.
«YOU WANT TO BECOME BEAUTIFUL AND HAVE A PERFECT BODY RIGHT?»
“Yes but not anymore, please let me leave” I said.
“Mara! Didn’t you decide you wanted to do this” Ellen said and i glared at her.
“I don’t want to do this anymore” I said.
“Quilah she’s going to do it” Ellen said.
“I’m not doing it”
“You will”
“I will not!”
“You will!”
«STOP!!!»
We both kept quiet and stared at each other.
«TAMARA WESTON,WHY ARE YOU REFUSING TO DO THIS AFTER YOU’VE DECIDED TO DO IT»
“I..i don’t know,i just don’t want to do this anymore” I said.
“Mara! Remember Bryan, don’t you want him to love you, don’t you want people to admire you everywhere you go instead of bullying and making fun of you” Ellen said.
I don’t care about all that except Bryan.
I’m gonna do this,just for him.
“Okay…I will do it but i hope i won’t be hurt?” I asked.
«OFCOURSE NO! YOU WILL TRANSFORM IN 24HOURS AFTER YOU DRINK HOGOBITRE PORTION»
“What’s that?” I asked curiously.
«THE TRANSFORMATION PORTION! YOU WILL STAY HERE FOR A DAY»
“Here?” I asked and looked around.
There are dirty local pots everywhere with cobwebs and some rotten things i can’t name.
I nearly puked.
SHE LAUGHED «I WILL FORGIVE YOU FOR THINKING MY CAVE IS DISGUSTING,THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE GONNA SLEEP» She said and pointed her staff to the wall.
I gasped in shock and shifted back when the most beautiful bedroom appeared.
It’s sparkling neat with everything i could ever request for.
The bed is well spread and the rug…OMG.
“H..ow did you do that?” I gasped.
“Can i sleep in there with her?” Ellen asked.
«NO!! YOU CAN’T»
“it’s so beautiful!” I exclaimed.
«SO,COME CLOSER TO HAVE YOUR PORTION»
I looked at Ellen and she gave me a reassuring look.
I sighed and walked closer to her.
She dipped a little bowl in a large pot containing greenish liquid.
She handed it over to me.
«DRINK IT ALL IN A GULP, DON’T STOP»
I turned back to look at Ellen and she whispered “Drink it”
Just for Bryan…I gulped it down and it tasted like a sour soup down my throat.
I restrained the urge to vomit,the little empty bowl fell from my hand and i staggered back.
It seems the portion changed my entire system.
I felt so new.
My eyes were starting to get dizzy and all i remembered was falling to the ground before blacking out.
*** ***
I opened my glued eyes and adjusted it to the brightness surrounding me.
I noticed im laying in an unfamiliar room but the most beautiful room I’ve ever seen.
What am i doing here?
I heard some sounds like a chant.
I laid still cause i was afraid to move or do anything.
I noticed i was not feeling heavy like i normally feel but i shrugged it off.
Where exactly is this?
«SHE’S AWAKE» I heard the familiar voice and everything came running back into my head.
Q..uilah!
I was in the beautiful bedroom she created.
I remembered i had slumped after drinking the portion.
Where’s Ellen?
“OMG… Mara,you are awake” i heard Ellen giggled excitedly before sitting beside me.
I felt so relieved she’s here with me.
“What happened to me?” I asked.
“You slumped yesterday..”
“Yesterday?” I asked.
“Yeah,it was yesterday you drank the portion..you slumped and i was so afraid. Quilah said the portion is too strong for you and i had to quickly go about getting the things she asked me to. Thank goodness you are awake now..I was so afraid” She said.
I sighed; “I was here since yesterday?” I asked.
“Yes”
“What of granny? What did you tell her?” I asked.
” I lied to her that your mum is sick and you already went home but that aside… Mara you need to see how you look now” She said and i noticed she’s holding herself from screaming.
“How i look?” I asked.
“Yes” She smiled.
“The portion worked?” I asked anxiously.
“Yes it did, Mara you are now more beautiful than i” She said and i almost shouted at her to stop teasing me.
“Im gonna blindfold you now and make you stand in front of that mirror then you’ll see how changed you are” Ellen said.
I smiled,hoping it’s true.
**
I knew i was standing in front of the mirror but i couldn’t see my reflection cause i was still blindfolded.
“Surprise!” She said and removed the blindfold.
I was shocked when i saw a different person.
A beautiful and perfectly structured teenager with the most beautiful set of eyes,nose and lips.
Just the way I’ve always wished to be but i know I’m not the one.
I waited for the girl to move away so i can see my fatty self but she refused to move.
I moved my hand and the beautiful reflection also did.
What a coincidence!
I moved my legs,the beautiful reflection did also.
Is it another coincidence?
I pushed my chest forward and the reflection did also.
This time,i was sure it was no coincidence;
I’m the one!
I’m the one!!
I’m the one!!!
I’m no longer the fatty Mara!
“IM THE ONE!” I screamed excitedly and jumped into Ellen’s hand.
She didn’t fall, my weight wasn’t too much for her.
I’m now perfect.
We both screamed happily jumping round the room.
My happiness knew no bound as i thanked Quilah profusely.
My wish has been granted just by drinking a simple portion which did me no harm.
I’m so grateful.
I can now walk freely!
I can now walk into the school cafeteria without anyone laughing but admiring me.
I can now be counted among the most beautiful girls in Makers high school and finally;
I can now own Bryan’s heart!
That will be so great.
I looked at my reflection in the mirror for the twentieth time and can’t help but admire the damsel i’ve become.
Am i really the one?
Yes i am..
“Ellen” I called after i suddenly thought of something.
“Huh?” She asked.
“What am i gonna tell mum and Liam” I said worriedly.
“I already thought of that,so you are gonna tell them i made you workout and also drank the fit tea granny always make”
“Fit tea?” I asked.
“Yeah…I cooked up that, you’ll tell them the fit tea normally makes one fit and conjoined with the workout i made you do,this is the result” She said.
“Wow! Do you think they’d believe that?” I asked knowing Mum and Liam can be so curious.
“Of course they will! You’ll make them believe that” She said.
“Okay,let’s assume they are gonna believe that,what about my beautiful face” I said proudly.
“That’s not a problem, you’ll tell them that there are some delicacies in the countryside which normally changes one’s face,you know they’ve never been to the countryside so they will have no choice but to believe you and besides they won’t ever think you did something like this?” Ellen said.
“Wow…high five bestie” I said and we both exchanged high fives grinning happily.
“But you’ll have to do something to make them believe you better” She said.
“What?” I asked.
“You will stay here for a month” She said.
“But you already told granny that I’ve gone home” I said.
“You are gonna stay with Quilah” She said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yeah…if you go home with me, granny will know we visited this cave and she’s gonna run a call across Mum” She said.
“Haaa so you mean i will stay with Quilah for some weeks?” I asked a little bit terrified.
“Yes..I’ve told her about it and she said you can have the bedroom to yourself,she isn’t gonna disturb you or anything…I will come visiting everyday” Ellen said and i sighed.
“What about food? I can’t see a kitchen here” I said.
“Quilah is gonna add a kitchen to this room”
“So you want me to be eating magical food? Hell no!” I said.
“Okay,i will be bringing you food.. breakfast, lunch and dinner” She said.
“Thanks bestie” I hugged her happily.
“So everything is well planned out right?” She asked.
“Of course!” I said.
“That aside, you are making me jealous as i keep staring at you…just imagine! Fatty Mara is more beautiful than I” She teased and we both laughed.
I danced happily in front of the mirror.
OMG…just like a dream!!
I’m so happy to have transformed into this beautiful girl.
Quilah thank you…..

JUST FOR LOVE
(Love made her)
#Chapter 36

(Zeemah writes )
Mara’s POV
“GET OUTTT!!!” Liam yelled at Ellen.
She stood up in tears and started walking out.
“Ellen” Mum called and she turned.
“Liam let her say what she has to” Mum said.
“Thank you Mum” She said and sat down.
She wiped her tears and began;
“After we left the countryside, Quilah kept pestering me,she will force me to do what i don’t want to when i was not even the one she granted a wish.
I got so pissed cause i was suffering for what Mara did.
I knew very well that Bryan was the reason Mara did all she did,so i planned to also make her sad by dating Bryan, though Quilah initially told me to be mean to Mara but i added my own ways.
I told Mara that we shouldn’t attend Bryan’s party,she agreed but i went behind her back.
So,it got to the truth and dare section in the party and i carried out my plan.
I dared Bryan to date me for three months and he accepted the dare.
I know that was going to make Mara sad but then i didn’t care cause i was going through hell in Quilah’s hand just for Mara.
Recently, Quilah came to meet me that she wants me to take the necklace off Mara’s neck so she can be able to have access to her.
“Necklace?” I asked.
“Yeah,the fallen angels necklace” she said and i stared at my neck.
My necklace was still laying there,i glanced at Bryan also.. same thing.
“What does this necklace has to do with Quilah?” I asked curiously.
“Quilah said it’s a magical necklace made with the golds from a so called garden,the garden is forbidden to Quilah and others except the real owners.
So she told me the necklace is preventing her from accessing you,i should find ways to get it away from your neck if i don’t want to mourn my parents.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yes, she threatened me with that and i know she’s gonna do whatever she says so i..i agreed to get the necklace from your neck..T..that was the reason i reconciled with you”
“Geez!” I exclaimed in shock.
I now see the reason she told me to give her my necklace immediately we reconciled.
Laura warned me but i was being a fool.
I looked over at Laura and she gave me a i-told-you look.
I sighed and turned back to Ellen.
“I’m sorry…She agreed not to hurt you,that she just wanted to have a little chat with you.
So when you gave me that necklace,i was expecting Quilah to meet with you but it seems she didn’t till school was over.
I was curious as i handed the necklace back to you.
I got home and met her as usual.
I told her i already got the necklace off your neck that what does she want again.
She said she wasn’t able to access you still cause Bryan Shaw was with you”
“She knows my name?” Bryan asked in surprise gripping my hand in fear.
I should have laughed but i can’t in this tension.
“She knows everyone’s name” I said and remembered i was with Bryan the day Ellen and i reconciled.
He took me to the garden to talk to me about Kelly but unknowingly his necklace saved him.
“So she told me Bryan protected Mara with his own necklace,that i will need to get the necklace away from both Bryan and Mara’s neck… Bryan remember i called you that afternoon and told you not to wear your necklace to school the next day…”
“OMG! So this was the reason?” Bryan asked.
“Yes it was…I told Bryan not to wear his necklace to school the next day but he refused so i went to his house and..and..and…”
I noticed her cheeks had gone pink.
Did something happen?
Did anything naughty happened?
I hope not!!
“I..i stole the necklace from him and went home” She said and i was relieved nothing funny happened.
If anything happened,she would have said it cause she’s confessing everything right now.
“I lied to him the next day that it was in his drawer and he let me be. I also persuaded Mara to let me have her necklace and she gave it to me.
Later in the day,Mara went to the garden, Kelly and Bryan followed her and i know Quilah will have access to her cause none of them is with the necklace. More stories @ www.chorusman.com
.
We were later called that Mara was vomiting blood and i felt so guilty knowing I’m the cause..I shouldn’t have helped Quilah to get the necklace away but i don’t want to lose my parents… Please forgive me” She said in tears.
I was crying in shock knowing my best friend is the cause to all this.
“You mean you were the reason that witch got access to Mara and then hurt her,do you know what you did led to her limited days on earth..Ellen why would you do that” Laura cried.
“I’m sorry,i didn’t want to lose my parents. I love them so much..I’m sorry Mara please forgive me” She said and crawled to my front in tears.
Liam’s face had gone red and i hope he doesn’t pounce on Ellen right now.
Mum looked so sad,sadder than when we lost dad.
I feel so bad knowing I’m the cause of all this.
I cried loudly nonstop for a lot of minutes.
No one said anything but cried.
The sadness in our faces was huge.
“I’m going to continue,i know you all want to kill me but let me be done first” Ellen sniffled.
She’s still bent at my front.
“When Mara was taken to the hospital,i know she might die,then i thought of something ‘if the necklace can prevent Quilah from accessing her,it might also prevent her from dieing’ So i lied to Laura that we were told the necklace can heal all sort of illness. She believed me and that was how we came to the hospital and Liam wore the necklace around Mara’s neck”
I’m glad she saved me,i would have kept vomiting blood and the doctor wouldn’t be able to diagnose a thing.
I might be in discomfort throughout a year but she saved me from that.
And to look at it in another direction,she isn’t at fault. Who would want to mourn his parents.
“Thanks Ellen” I muttered.
“Don’t thank me” She screamed in tears.
“I caused you all this,i want you to swear at me,hit me, kill me. Mara don’t thank me!” She cried.
She held my legs “Please forgive me”
“Ellen,i don’t owe anything against you..I’ve forgiven you. All this isn’t your fault,no one would love to lose his or her parents.
I might also do the same if i were in your shoes.
I’ve forgiven you” I said and pulled her up hugging her tightly.
She sobbed and kept saying she’s sorry.
Of course i know she’s sorry.
We disengaged from the hug and she turned to face everyone.
“I’m so sorry,i wish i had listen to granny,i wish i hadn’t visited that cave cause my visit to the cave started all this.
Now Mara has a year to live just because i forced her to do that s**t.
Mara,we are leaving together huh? I pushed you into all this and i can’t allow you to die alone” She said.
“No Ellen,you must not.please. I don’t want anyone to die after me” I said.
“But you are dieing because of me, i would love to die with you” She said.
“You can’t! Please Ellen,i won’t forgive you if you do that” I threatened.
“Yeah! I’m gonna do it. Mara please don’t persuade me..I’m the reason you have limited days on earth and yet you are telling me not to die. Once you are dead,I’m also coming with you!” She said with a note of finality.
She’s so serious about it and i know she’s gonna do as she said.
She isn’t in the mood to listen right now..im gonna persuade her later.
“Please you all should forgive Ellen, please” I pleaded.
“Please forgive me” She cried.
Mum was the first to pull her in a hug.
“Ellen,you are just like a daughter to me. You both were just being childish,i don’t blame any of you for anything,this is probably the way God wants it” Mum said with tears rolling down her cheeks.
“Thanks Mum” Ellen smile amidst tears and wiped mum’s face with the tip of her jacket.
Laura was the second to speak up.
“Ellen,i understand. You are not entirely at fault. Its okay,i forgive you” She said and hugged Ellen lightly.
“Thanks Laura” Ellen said.
Bryan stood up next.
“I should be the one to blame for all this,you both did all this because of me and I’ve never felt this guilty all my life.
“Ellen i forgive you” He said and pecked her cheeks.
“Thanks Bryan” She smiled.
“I wish all this was just a dream but it turns out to be reality.
I might never get over losing Mara but i forgive you Ellen,you sure worth my forgiveness” Kelly and hugged her.
“Thanks Kelly” She smiled sadly.
It’s remaining a person… the stubborn Liam.
We stared at him expecting him to also forgive Ellen but he remained seated glancing back at us.
I can see so many things in that eyes.
We will have to talk later.
“Li..”
“Don’t call me!” He yelled at me brushing back his hair with his fingers.
He folded his palm tightly trying hard to hold his tears.
His fingers were starting to cut into his flesh which produced blood.
I gasped and quickly stood up,i don’t care if he’s still pissed at me. I can’t watch him hurt himself.
I split his palm after several attempt.
I hold his palm in mine and sat down beside me.
I noticed his tears were starting to roll down his cheeks.
He looked so hurt and tried to release his palm from my grip but i held on tightly.
“I’m sorry Liam” I said and my lips quivered as hot tears poured down my face.
“Please forgive me,I’m sorry i hid things from you,i know i promised never to hide anything from you but such things are better left unsaid…I’m so sorry Liam, please forgive me. I love you” I said and placed my head on his arm.
I smiled when i felt him kiss my hair.
“Tam,I’m so pained you hid things from me after promising not to.
I forgive you and i love you too but it would have been better if your days on earth aren’t limited, that’s what’s bothering me. I don’t want to lose you,there will be no one left for me” He said in tears and hugged me tightly to his chest.
I cried and ran my hand through his hair.
“I’m sorry Liam,but I’m not gonna die soon. The doctor only said that medically” I said to reassure him.
“Even if the doctor said that medically,what of that witch! She killed Jessie and she’s capable of killing anyone else” He said.
“My necklace is here to protect me” I said and smiled up at him even though i know the necklace can’t prevent me from dieing in the next twelve months. The doctor is right so is Quilah.
I know and i accept i will be gone soon but i have to reassure everyone.
“I don’t want to believe that” he said.
“Com’on Liam,you just have to. I’m assuring you that i won’t die,trust me” I said and poked his chest.
He refused to smile and i did again, he’s trying to hold his smile.
I continued till he grinned,i chuckled happily and kissed his cheek.
“You look so cute when grinning” I said.
“I’m not flattered” he rolled his eyes.
“But you will be if Reiya tells you that” I teased and saw his face brightened at the mention of Reiya.
I’m glad there’ll be someone to keep him happy after I’m gone.
“Look” I said and pointed to his blood stained palm,some has stained my dress.
“Why did you wanted to hurt yourself,Reiya won’t like to have a rough palmed lover” I said and we both giggled.
“Will you forgive Ellen too?.. please” I whispered to him.
He frowned and nodded.
“Ellen,i forgive you but only because i believe Tam isn’t gonna die” he said.
“Thanks so much Liam” Ellen said and gladly hugged him before returning to sit back on the couch.
“Now let’s all think on what next to do” I said looking at Everyone.
Kelly’s POV
I can’t believe she loves Bryan that much to do such thing.
Will she ever love me that way?
Hell no! She won’t,she can’t.
She’s in love with Bryan and that hurt like hell..
I’m a little bit glad Bryan doesn’t have feelings for her, that still gives me a chance.
I still love her even after hearing the dreadful things she did.
She did it for love…i can also do the same for her.
I wish time can be reversed,i wish all this is just a dream,i wish her days aren’t limited.
It’s just so sad! I’m trying not to believe that,I’m trying to prove the doctor wrong but i..i know it’s real.
The only girl i will ever love is gonna die soon.
I looked over at her,she was resting her head on Liam’s chest while he stroked her hair.
That soft hair I’ve always wished to touch..
Anyone who comes in now will think they are a couple.
I wish i also have a sibling..
I wondered if i would have had feelings for her if she was still fat but i think yes! Cause i don’t look at body structure or face.
I always listen to my heart.
Body criticizers should be blamed for all this.
If she hadn’t been criticized about the way she looked,she wouldn’t have gotten the nerve to do this.
I’ve never criticized anyone,cause there are reasons they are created that way.
Instead of criticizing,one should be glad and thankful.
Tammy…I’m gonna date you and im trying to believe you won’t leave soon.
Bryan’s POV
To think I’m the reason Mara did all this is so unbearable.
I’m the cause of all this!
And yet i don’t even feel a thing for her.
I wish i can love her just the way she loves me. I tried to,but my heart is not heeding..it is turning to another person instead.
It is turning to someone that did not even did anything to have me.
I don’t care if i have feelings for Laura.
I’m gonna date Mara,she can’t go through hell for nothing.
She can’t live for a year without getting what she have always wanted.
I’m gonna make sure she’s happy for the remaining months even though I’m trying not to believe that Mara will be gone soon.
That so called witch is a bitch!
I’ve never felt this sad and guilty,i hope everything turns out well. I don’t want to lose Mara.
I looked at her and sincerely she’s undeniably prettier than Laura,she has a dark blue eyes which made her brown skin stood out..her hair is so black and full,her nose is beautiful pointed..and her lips are Wow..
It tasted good when i kissed her but i didn’t feel what i wanted to feel.
That doesn’t change anything,I’m still gonna date her and;
The necklace is a bit surprising.
No wonder it shines.
Who would have thought it was magical.
I thought it’s an original gold that do no rust but wow__it saved our lives.
What if fallen angels had decided to keep the necklace to theirselves?
What if we were not the lucky fans?
That means… Mara would have been long gone.
Ugh! I’m so terrified..what if that witch decides to turn up.
Well…she can’t cause we are with our necklace.
I’m so curious to see her myself.
I’m gonna hit her till she faints but i know i dare not.
She might squeeze me at first glance.
My heart pumped when i caught Laura’s gaze.
Damn! This heart should go to hell.
Laura’s POV
I sighed softly still surprised at the confessions.
I was shocked at first but it was later dissolved into surprise.
Who would do that just for love?
I doubt if i can do that cause it’s so huge and terrific.
It turns out that Bryan doesn’t have feelings for her,i would have just killed myself if i were in her shoes.
Mara has a rare personality,she’s so soft hearted,she forgives easily and is very emotional.
Ellen did all this to her and she didn’t hesitate a bit to forgive her.
Even though Ellen is not entirely at fault,some blames are still attached to her.
She has a year to live!
Yet she assures everyone that she isn’t gonna die.
It’s just so sad,i wish i can do something.
I can sense fear in her eyes…she’s afraid to die and we are afraid to lose her.
She shouldn’t have done all this in the first place.
She didn’t do it only because of love,she did it because she was not contented about the way she is.
If she had been wiser,she should have known love overlooks things.
Being fat doesn’t mean she will never find true love,she will definitely find someone who will love her for who she is.
Even the Bryan she did it for does not feel a thing for her even after she became beautiful.
Isn’t that a waste?
Feelings is not in the eyes but in the heart.
No matter how bad someone looks, feelings will always prevail.
I wish i had told her all this before she went ahead to meet that so called goddess who is so cruel to demand her life as payback.
What if Bryan decides to date her?
Why should i worry about that?
I just need to erase this crazy feelings I’m starting to develop for him.
Mara really needs him… at least for a while.
Ellen’s POV
I felt so relieved after saying everything and I’m so happy everyone forgave me.
I initially thought they would pounce on me and beat the hell out of me…yeah! I deserve that.
I totally deserve that.
I’m the main cause of everything.
I’m the one who caused my friend’s limited days on earth.
I’m the one!
“Can we see Quilah?” Liam suddenly asked and everyone sat up in fear.
“Yes we can see her,I’m very sure she’s lurking around but she can’t access us due to this necklaces” I said.
“If we get this necklace away,will she come?” Liam asked.
“Of course she will come,i sensed her presence when i was about leaving home but she wasn’t able to access me because of Bryan..he came to pick me wearing his necklace” I said.
“We need to see her” Liam said.
“Let’s not s..see her” Bryan said.
“Please, don’t let her come here” Kelly said.
Laura gripped the couch arm while Mara’s mum looked nervous.
It’s so obvious they are all afraid except Liam,Mara and i.
“Bryan, Tam, submit your necklaces. I will give it to James and tell him to move far away from here” Liam said stretching his palm forward to collect the necklaces.
“Liam, please let’s not see her” Bryan said.
“I need to beg her,i must not lose my sister..you still have the gut to talk after my sis did all this because she loves you and yet you didn’t love her back. Submit your necklace,i won’t like to pull it from your neck” Liam said.
“B..b”
“It’s okay Bryan, just give him the necklace” Mara’s mum said.
Bryan humbly unhooked his necklace and handed it over to Liam.
Mara also dropped hers in his palm.
“Should i follow you?” She asked.
“No Tam,i will be right back” he pecked her and walked out of the door.
** **
Liam has returned some minutes ago.
He has told James to go far away with the necklace and we all sat in silence waiting for Quilah to show up.
Fear is written on their faces.
I sat up when i suddenly felt Quilah’s presence.
I won’t deny that im also afraid.
Her shadow suddenly ran past us and everyone screamed already rushing to the door.
“I’M QUILAH,THE GREAT GODDESS OF WISHES”
She’s here.
Everyone froze,not able to move from the spot.
Sweat broke out from Bryan’s forehead and he tightly held Mara’s hand.
Kelly shivered and stared at her in awe.
Fear was written on Liam’s face and his mum kept muttering a prayer.
Laura screamed and rushed to the door,she pulled the knob but it didn’t open.
She tried again…same thing.
She started crying begging to leave.
«Hahaha…LAURA SAVE YOUR STRENGTH,THAT DOOR WON’T OPEN!! ELLEN BLAISE,YOU ARE TO BE PUNISHED FOR DISOBEYING ME» She said and stretched her staff to me.
I felt like i was being electrocuted.
I fell to the floor in pains…
Quilah please!!

Mara’s POV
«Hahaha…LAURA SAVE YOUR STRENGTH,THAT DOOR WON’T OPEN!! ELLEN BLAISE,YOU ARE TO BE PUNISHED FOR DISOBEYING ME» She said and stretched her staff to Ellen.
She fell to the floor shaking in pains.
“Quilah please!!” I pleaded..
«I WILL LEAVE YOU FOR NOW, BUT YOU WILL BE PUNISHED BEFORE I LEAVE» She said and released Ellen who sat up with a startled look.
Everyone was shaking in fear as she glanced at them one after the other.
«YOU ALL SHOULD SIT DOWN» She said but no one dare move.
“Liam you caused this” Bryan cried.
“I didn’t know she was gonna come” Liam said.
“Look at her wings…so scary” Laura cried gripping my arm.
«SIT DOWN!! DO YOU WANT ME TO HELP YOU SIT»
Ellen and i quickly sat down.
“Sit down” i whispered to them but they were shaken to sit.
Quilah raised her fingers and within the blinking of an eye they were all seated. I was not surprised but the rest gasped in shock excluding Ellen.
“Please don’t kill us” Laura pleaded rubbing her palms together.
«SHUT UP! I’M NOT HERE TO KILL ANYONE,LIAM WESTON YOU MADE ME TO BE HERE,WHAT DID YOU WANT TO SAY TO ME»
“I didn’t know you will turn up,but i called you because i wanted to plead. Please don’t let me lose my sister” Liam said.
She laughed «I KNOW THEY’VE BOTH TOLD YOU EVERYTHING,I GRANTED HER WISH AND ITS HIGH TIME SHE PAID ME BACK»
“Please we are gonna give you any amount,just spare my daughter. I beg of you.. please” Mum pleaded in tears.
«JUST SO YOU KNOW; TAMARA WESTON IS IN THE LAST STAGE OF HER PAYBACK. I’VE SEALED IT AND THERE’S NOTHING THAT CAN CHANGE IT».
“Quilah please,I’m the cause of all this. Take my life instead” Ellen said.
«OFCOURSE YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING BUT YOU AREN’T THE ONE I GRANTED A WISH SO I CAN’T TAKE YOUR LIFE,YOU WILL STILL GET PUNISHED FOR DISOBEYING ME BEFORE I LEAVE»
“Mrs Q..quilah please we don’t want to lose Mara. Spare her please,she won’t come to you again” Laura pleaded.
«AHAH, THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE! I SHOULD HAVE KILLED HER IMMEDIATELY BUT I GAVE HER A YEAR TO LIVE,YOU ALL SHOULD GO CUDDLE HER BEFORE THIS YEAR RUNS OUT»
“Quilah please don’t let me die,i don’t want to die…please” I pleaded in tears.
“Please”
“Quilah please” Everyone chorused and started begging on their knees.
«YOUR PLEAS CAN’T CHANGE A THING,CAUSE IT HAS ALL BEEN SEALED AND MOREOVER I DON’T LISTEN TO PLEAS,ONCE YOU COME TO ME THEN GET READY TO PAY ME BACK. I DON’T GRANT WISHES FREELY»
“Even if she has to pay back, does it have to be with death. That’s s..so c..c.. cruel” Liam said.
«LIAM WESTON,I WON’T WANT TO PUNISH YOU CAUSE NO ONE GETS OUT OF MY PUNISHMENT ALIVE,BUT I’M GONNA WARN YOU…MIND THE WAY YOU SPEAK IN MY PRESENCE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DIE EARLIER THAN YOUR SISTER»
“Please, don’t kill Mara. Let her live,she did all she did for me. Please spare her” Bryan begged.
«BRYAN SHAW,KEEP TO YOURSELF AND SPARE YOUR PARENTS. YOUR FATHER IS ON A BUSINESS TRIP RIGHT? WOULD YOU LOVE TO HIS SHIP TO CAPSIZE?»
“No!! Please don’t do that, don’t hurt my dad” Bryan cried.
«NO ONE SHOULD PLEAD TO ME ANYMORE,I WON’T WANT TO HURT ANYONE BEFORE LEAVING…TAMARA WESTON PAYBACK IS SEALED AND ,THERE IS NO GOING BACK!!!»
“Quilah, please take me instead,don’t kill Mara.. please” Ellen said.
“No! Take me instead” Bryan said.
«DONT GET ME PISSED!» Quilah thundered and two white birds flew out of her mouth.
Laura bursted into tears and others gasped.
I was not surprised but worried, Quilah is so serious and i know there’s truly no going back.
There’s just a year left for me.
A year!
I’m not gonna see this faces anymore.
I don’t want to believe this but i just have to.
I will be gone soon.
Mum cried silently looking at me, seeing her sad and knowing I’m the cause of her sadness is one of my worst fears.
Who would have believed i would visit a goddess.
Everyone is so disappointed at me,I’m also disappointed at myself.
What will happen to my dream of becoming a surgeon.
I’ve always said it’s death that will stop me from becoming a surgeon and i think that’s what’s happening.
«OFCOURSE IT’S DEATH THAT’S GONNA STOP YOU FROM BECOMING A SURGEON»
“Did you say anything about that?” Liam asked.
“No,she reads thoughts” I said.
“Really?”
“Yes”
«I THINK ITS HIGH TIME I LEFT BUT ELLEN BLAISE I SAID I WAS GOING TO PUNISH YOU»
“Quilah please”
«I DON’T LISTEN TO PLEAS,I DO WHAT I WANT..IF I DON’T WANT TO PUNISH YOU THEN I WON’T»
“Then why did you want to punish her,you can spare her if you want but you chose to be cruel” Liam blurted.
“Liam” I whispered and nudged him with my arm.
«LIAM WESTON..MIND! YOUR! SPEECH!» Quilah warned.
«THE ONLY REASON I’LL SPARE YOU IS BECAUSE TAMARA WILL BE GONE IN A YEAR»
“I’m gonna make sure my sister do not die” Liam said.
Quilah laughed «IN YOUR DREAMS»
«BACK TO YOU ELLEN BLAISE»
…….
James POV
I sat in a restaurant far away from the house with the two necklaces in my left hand while i used my right hand to sip the juice i ordered..
I can’t just sit here staring into space.. that’ll be absurd.
I wonder the reason Liam gave me this necklaces and told me to walk far away from home.
His face was tear streaked and i noticed all wasn’t going well inside the house.
I just hope everyone of them is safe.
Come to think of it, this necklaces are so beautiful.
I smiled as i touched the name engraved on it.
I only know Bryan and Mara are the lucky fans at fallen angels concert.
I would have loved to go with them to the concert.
I’m starting to get bored here,I’m on my third glass of juice.
Liam gave me some dollar bills and said i shouldn’t return home till he calls me.
I kept checking my phone but his calls weren’t coming in.
I’m starting to get hungry.
I picked the menu from the table and scanned through it.
I signalled to the waitress,she rushed over.
“Do you need another glass of juice sir?” She asked.
“No. Serve me fries and chicken” I said.
“Okay” She bowed and left.
The restaurant is a bit crowded,i kept glancing from table to table waiting for my order.
Most of the tables are filled up.
I glanced at the last table and noticed the guy was staring at me.
Not at me exactly but the necklaces in my palm.
He’s obviously admiring it.
The waitress returned with my order,placed it on the table.
“Thanks” I said.
“Wow! Are you one of the lucky fans?” She asked staring at the necklace.
I smiled…”No I’m not but my siblings are”
“Wow,your siblings are so lucky..i searched for this necklace when it was thrown but i wasn’t lucky” She said.
“Aww” I sighed.
“Can I touch it?” She asked.
“Of course” I said.
She touched it and grinned widely.
“OMG it’s so cool” She said.
“Yes it is” I said wanting her to leave already.
“Thanks” She said and scampered away.
I sighed and started eating.
**
“Hi” I heard and glanced up from the table.
I just finished eating.
It was the man who was admiring the necklaces.
I smiled “Hello”
“Mind if i share the table with you?” He asked.
“No,you are free to sit” I said.
“Thanks” He sat and dropped his glass cup of wine on the table.
If Liam doesn’t call soon..I’m just gonna leave.
“This necklaces look so beautiful” The man said.
“Yeah it does” I said.
“It’s gonna worth a large sum of money” he said.
“Of course it will”
“It looks so raw and it’s an original gold” He said.
I shrugged.
“Do you own it?” He asked.
I shook my head “My siblings do”
“Wow. They gave it to you right?” He asked.
“Hmm..yeah”
“Good! You can make a fortune out of this necklaces” He said starting to confuse me.
“A fortune? I don’t get what you are saying” I said.
“I mean this necklaces costs a lot,you can make a fortune out of it” He said.
“I don’t own it..” I said.
“Your siblings do right? They shouldn’t question you if you don’t return it to them” He said.
I chuckled…”They are not actually my siblings, I’ve been working for them as a gate keeper for years,so i became part of the family and what do you mean by they won’t question it if i don’t return it to them? They only gave me to hold it for some hours” I said.
“Huh you mean you’re their gatekeeper?” He asked and i nodded.
“Wow, you can stop being a gatekeeper and also build your mansion with fleet of cars and a lot of money” He said confusing me more.
“I don’t get,can you please go straight to the point..I’m confused here” I said.
“Okay,i mean I’m ready to buy this necklaces for a valuable amount of money” He said and i laughed.
“That will be nice but i can’t sell it” I said.
“Why?” He asked.
“It isn’t mine,it will be so wrong to do that” I said.
“But they already took you as family,so they won’t bother you if you don’t return it” He said.
“Does that sound good to your ears? They hold the necklaces in high esteem and i dare not return without it”
“You don’t even have to return to that house,once you sell it to me now, there are some bags of dollars in my car. I will give one to you and then you go set up your life” He said cunningly.
“I don’t need the money,I’m very okay with that house,i should have left there a long time ago but this people treated me well,i sometimes forget I’m a gatekeeper…I was offered a good job in their company but i declined.. being their gatekeeper is enough for me” I said.
“Do you wish to remain their gatekeeper forever? Sell this necklaces to me and take a bag of dollars. Then you set up your life” He said.
” Why are you so interested in buying this necklaces?” I asked.
“Uhh..i love it,it’s so beautiful” he said.
“Then go to a jewelry store and purchase one,there are others that are more beautiful than this” I said.
“Of course i know but i so much prefer this ones,i love them so much” He said.
“Okay,just take a pics of the necklaces and go to a jeweler to engrave the same for you” I said.
“Why don’t you do that after I give you the money,your siblings will never find out cause it’s gonna look exactly the same” He said.
“That’s an inhumane act,i can’t do that,the only thing i can do for you is to allow you take the pics” I said and held the necklaces tightly.
This man looks so desperate.
“Sell this to me please,do you know how much you will earn? Okay just name any price,I’m gonna give you” He said.
“I don’t need money! This necklaces aren’t mine,I can’t sell it okay?” I said.
“Com’on man,just it to me.. okay I’m gonna give you all the bags of dollars in my car” He said.
“Just for this necklaces?” I asked.
“Of course”
“That’s making me suspicious,looks like you have an ulterior motive,if you will excuse me” I said and stood up from the chair.
“Sit down man,let’s talk this out” he said.
I slipped the bill of my meal on the table and started walking out of the cafeteria.
I got outside and breathed in fresh air.
Liam should just call,i need to get out of this place.
“Damn!” I muttered when i noticed the man followed me outside.
“Chill man,I’m ready to pay anything for those necklaces” He persisted.
I ignored him.
I grinned when my phone rang,i brought it out of my pocket expecting it to be Liam but it was Max.
Hey buddy, where are you? He asked.
The restaurant in the fourth estate.
What you doing there!” He asked.
Liam called me out and gave me those necklaces,that i should move far away from home till he calls me.
Really!
Yeah,I’ve been expecting his call and I’m so bored of staying here.
You need to start coming home, Mara’s classmates are here and they’ve been banging the gate but i gat no key with me.
Oh..my really?
Yeah.
I’m on my way already.
I disconnected the call and started running home ignoring the calls of that pester.
Mara’s POV
We were all silent,we heard the banging of gate but no one could go out cause Quilah has control over the door.
Of course she’s still here!
She said she feels like parading our entire living room before leaving.
Who does that?
Ellen was crying, Quilah vowed to hurt her before she leaves.
There were tears in others eyes but tears wasn’t rolling down my cheeks anymore.
I’m tired of crying.
«I WILL BE LEAVING IN SOME MINUTES,I SHOULDN’T HAVE STAYED THIS LONG BUT I FOUND COMFORT IN YOUR LIVING ROOM»
“That doesn’t mean you should come visiting anytime you please,you are not welcome here” Liam said.
«Hahaha THANKS YOUR STARS I ALREADY VOWED NOT TO HURT YOU»
“You can hurt me or kill me instead,i think that will be better than seeing my sister die” Liam said.
«LIAM WESTON YOU ARE GETTING ON MY NERVES!!»
“Liam” Mum scolded.
“Mum s..”
“Shut up” Mum interrupted him.
“You think you can brace up to her right? Do you think we can hold her down if she kills you..I’m still trying to bare your sister’s and yet you are trying to call on your own death” Mum said.
“I’m sorry Mum” He muttered.
«WHATEVER!! GOOD THING YOU REPRIMANDED HIM,I WAS STARTING TO GET PISSED AND I WOULD HAVE HURT HIM WITHOUT HESITATION» She said and produced a glass cup of reddish liquid with just her fingers.
She gulped it down and threw the glass cup in the air.
I gasped so as others, thinking it’s gonna shatter into pieces but it seems we all forgot who Quilah is.
The glass cup disappeared and she turned to Ellen who sniffled and wiped off her tears.
«ELLEN BLAISE,ITS TIME FOR ME TO LEAVE AND I GUESS YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS»
“Quilah i beg of you,just spare me this once” Ellen pleaded.
«IMPOSSIBLE!! I’M NOT GONNA KILL YOU,JUST A LITTLE PUNISHMENT» She said and was about to point her staff to Ellen when the door bursted open.
We all turned in surprise to see James.
He was rushing in and slipped in the process,the necklace flew out of his hand and went high in the air.
We all watched as it landed on Quilah.
She seems stuck to where she stood.
She was not able to move and her cheeks has turned pale green.
Her staff and wings disappeared and large green veins stuck out of her body.
She screamed like she’s in pains but i guess she’s performing one of her magics.
Can Quilah ever scream in pains.
She screamed louder holding tightly to her body..this time i don’t think she’s performing any magic..
She’s truly screaming in pains!
What happened?
Wait..t..is it the necklace?
Wow!
“Jeez-us christ!!” James exclaimed loudly.
“What’s this?” He asked in fear and ran out of the living room.
We were all still in shock.
“Everyone get up” Liam said.
We all stood up staring at Quilah in amazement,she kept turning in one direction screaming and hugging her body.
Her white hair was starting to turn black and her red robe was magically turned into shredded clothes.
“OMG She’s been attacked!” Laura screamed and threw the remote control at her.
It landed on her forehead and she held it in pains.
Wow..the remote control affected her!
“This is so shocking!” Kelly exclaimed.
“What happened to her?” Bryan asked.
“OMG!” Mum gasped.
“Good for her,i think the necklaces affected her, you know the necklaces is forbidden to her” Liam said picked the vase.
He also threw it at her.
“Serves her right!!” Ellen yelled and pulled off her jacket,she started Quilah with it, hitting her so hard.
I was surprised when everyone also picked something and started hitting Quilah even Mum!
They were all swearing at her as they threw things at her.
I must not miss this opportunity…even if im still gonna die,it won’t be bad if i also beat the hell out of Quilah.
I picked the empty magazine rack and hit it right on her head.
I continued hitting her and damn! It felt so good.
Who would have thought we will be beating the almighty Quilah.
“Wicked witch”
“So cruel”
“Disgusting”
“Ugly goddess”
“Dumbass”
“Quilah to hell with you!!”
“Rot in hell!” We all chorused hitting her hard.
We all shifted back when dark smoke suddenly started emanating from her body.
Her whole body turned into ashes and melted away.
“We are free!!” Ellen yelled in excitement.
“Yesssss” we chorused happily hugging one another.
“I’m glad i beat her up real bad” Liam chuckled.
“I’m Quilah, the great goddess of wishes” Laura mocked and we all laughed hard.
Bryan and i quickly picked the necklace and wore it round our necks.
“Liam you almost killed us” Bryan said.
“Well…thank God i didn’t”
“Quilah is gone” Ellen jumped happily and we all laughed again.
Our classmates suddenly rushed in surprising the hell outta us.
Wait…they were the one banging the gate!…Haha.
I’m glad Quilah is gone but does that mean i will not die in a year?
I wish..

Mara’s POV
“Thanks for coming to check on me everyone” i yelled amidst the noise.
Damn…just like chaos.
The couches in the living room were not enough for them,some were sitting on each other’s laps while some stood.
They were chattering so loud and i laughed when i saw Mum ran up to her room.
Liam stood looking at them in awe.
Laura,Ellen and Bryan went to get some cookies and juice in the kitchen.
I hope it will be enough for everyone.
They really surprised me,who would have believed they would come check on me.
Im feeling so happy and loved…
I grinned when i remembered how mum was surprised when she saw every girl on pontsplait.
Haha…she was like “Mara pontsplait!”
“Yes Mum,i taught them” I had replied.
“Everyone please keep quiet” Kelly shouted beside me.
They all stopped talking one after the other.
“Tamara how are you feeling now?
Why did you vomit blood?
What did the doctor diagnosed?
Are you sure you are okay?
Yes she is.. she looks more beautiful.
Do you wear this dress at home?
I love it.
We miss you at school.
When are you gonna resume..
Tamara!!!” I restrained myself from blocking my ears.
Damn!!! They should have just waited for me to come to school,instead of coming here but i so much appreciate.
“Thanks everyone,I’m very much okay now and I’m gonna resume school next week” I said and noticed their attention seems to be somewhere else.
OMG..is Quilah back!!!
I’m just gonna run mad.
I turned and saw they were staring at Liam especially the girls.
He was concentrated on his phone oblivious of the stares he’s getting.
I smiled and turned back to them.
“OMG…
Tamara is that your brother?
His name please?
He’s so cute.
His hair…damn!
Look at his lips.
He’s gorgeous..
Oh…my…
Tell him to say hi to us….” I sighed and turned to Liam.
He’s looking at them,not in surprise but… attracting attention isn’t new to him.
I always wish i was as cute as Liam..i wouldn’t have met Quilah.
I sometimes wonder if we are really of the same parents… Liam is naturally handsome but just take a look at the hell i went through just to become beautiful yet I’m still not as gorgeous as Liam..
So glad i gat a hot bro…his cuteness has saved me a lot of times.
“Liam.. please say hi” I whispered to him.
He cleared his throat…
“OMG,he did that in a cute way” The girls chorused.
Most of my old classmates knew Liam cause he always comes to my school anytime i got bullied but these are new set of people..I wonder where those ones went to.
“Hi cuties.. thanks for coming to check on my sister” He said.
“His voice… wow!!
Gosh..he called us cuties.
Can i touch you?
Your voice is the best.
Please talk again.
Can i take a snap?
OMG…look at his smile.
I’m gonna melt right now…”The girls chorused holding their chest.
Liam smiled and stood up then started walking up the stairs.
“Please don’t leave.
Let me touch you.
Tamara can i have his contact….” I sighed and rolled my eyes.
I think it’s a crime to have a cute brother.
I grinned inwardly knowing how lucky i am.
“He’s getting married soon” I shouted to stop all the chatter and it worked.
They went pale and silent and i was starting to hear sniffle.
Jeez-us! Are they really serious about Liam.
I thought they were only crushing.
“No one should cry,we are all here for you girls” A guy said and they all sent him glares.
“It would have been better if all the guys in our class are as cute as him,they we wouldn’t have drooled this much but you guys are bunch of ugly ducklings” The girl said and i held my laughter.
Others were starting to laugh except the guys.
“Com’on girls. Grade 8 males are the most handsome guys in Makers high school, our class is the envy of other classes so let’s appreciate how we all look” I said.
“Hmm..
That’s true.
We are sorry guys..
You guys are not ugly ducklings,you are princes charming….”The girls chorused,the guys kept mute but it’s so obvious they enjoyed the praises.
“Look…they are blushing” Ammy said and we all laughed..
Laura,Ellen and Bryan walked into the living room with little dishes of freshly baked cookies on wide trays.
My mouth watered as they started serving it round…
Everyone munched it happily commenting on how delicious it is.
Wow! I can’t believe the cookies was enough for everyone…well it was up to 34 dishes.
Did mum baked more?
“Did Mum baked more cookies?” I asked Bryan as he finished serving the last dish of cookies on his tray.
“Yeah…she came back into the kitchen to make more” He said.
“Okay…help me with mine please..I’m starving” I said.
“Come get yours in the kitchen” He grinned wickedly.
“Please” I said.
“No no” He said with a wink and i felt my stomach upturn.
“You are so wicked!” I said.
“Wow…that’s a compliment bestie” He said.
“Tch” I rolled my eyes at him.
He lifted the tray and hit it on my head before hurrying away.
“Ouch” I rubbed my head.
“Damn…I must not get you!” I yelled after him.
I heard him laugh…
I should just go to the kitchen myself.
“Should i help you get some cookies?” I heard Kelly asked and turned to him.
“Haa…i was about going to the kitchen to get it myself” I said and stood up.
The TV was on and that was what kept my classmates busy.
They were watching a US drama,one of the ones Laura brought for me.
I walked to the kitchen and saw Laura cleaning the breakfast table.
Ellen was putting things back in it’s place and Bryan was washing some dishes in the sink backing me.
Good!
I silently picked a steel tray.
Laura gave me a confused look but i pleaded for her not to utter a word.
Ellen chuckled already knowing what i was about to do.
I go to his back and lifted the tray.
I think he heard Ellen chuckled,he turned and the tray landed hard on his forehead.
Ahhhh…
We all bursted out laughing except Bryan who gave me a fake mean look.
I laughed…”You shouldn’t have turned,i wanted to hit it on your hair so it will be less painful but you turned” I said and bursted into another round of laughter, closing my eyes in the process.
Ellen and Laura laughed with me.
I suddenly felt a splash of water in my open mouth.
It tasted..;
Soapy!
Damn!
Bryan!!
I opened my eyes and found out he has disappeared from the kitchen.
I quickly rinsed off my mouth and turned when i heard laughter. I know it’s Bryan.
He was standing at the entrance of the kitchen grinning widely and sticking out his tongue.
Okay!
“Bryan you are so dead today” I screamed and ran after him.
\°\\\°\\\°\\\°\°
“Ahh…they’ve all left” Liam said happily as i walked into his room.
“Yesssss” I said and jumped on his bed.
Everyone has left for their home and I’m damn tired right now.
It was fun though…
I laid beside Liam and placed my head on his chest looking up at him.
I owe him some apology.
“Uhm…whom do i owe that look?” He asked and dropped his phone.
He stroked my hair and i smiled.
“Liam,I’m sorry” I said.
“For what?”
“For everything” I said.
“Okay…I’ve forgiven you earlier” He said.
“I know but i feel i need your forgiveness again” I said.
“Okay..I’ve forgiven you even before you asked for forgiveness,i was only shocked you could do such” He said.
That’s it!
“Yeah…but i just wasn’t happy with the way i looked and i also thought Bryan is gonna love me more if I’m beautiful” I said.
“No! You looked perfect,you were not just satisfied with that. Even with the way you looked then,did we ever treated you like an outcast?”
“No…but other people did” I shook my head.
“You shouldn’t have cared about what people said, people will always have something to say but you just gotta ignore them,you almost lost your life because you are so concerned about what people say to you…you shouldn’t give a Bleep” He said.
“I know but it wasn’t only about what people said,i did it for another reason” I said.
“Bryan right?” He asked and i nodded my head.
“I won’t chastise you for doing that just for love cause i now know what love means,i know know how love controls…if you are in love with your partner,i bet you’ll gladly kill a whole nation for him but you gat a problem” He said.
“Which is?” I asked.
“He doesn’t love you back” Liam said and i felt my heart shrink.
It’s so true… Bryan doesn’t love me.
But I’m not accepting that,i still love him and that’s all that matters.
“The person you did that for do not love you,just like a waste. He made you did something this terrible and yet he can’t love you back! I know love can’t be forced but that’s a little cruel of him…I might hate Bryan” Liam said making me gasp.
“Oh..no! Please Liam don’t hate him,he didn’t push me to do all this. I did it myself and he wasn’t even aware that i have feelings for him till last few days, don’t blame him for not loving me…it’s his heart. If Bryan can change his heart,he will gladly do that because of me. Please Liam, don’t hate him, remember you promised to take him as your sibling” I said.
“That was before he messed up,if Quilah hadn’t died, then you will die in a year just because of him. But thank goodness Quilah is gone…you are gonna stay with me forever” Liam smiled dragging my cheeks.
I sighed.
“What? Are you not happy?” Liam asked.
“Do you think Quilah’s disappearance means that i won’t die anymore?” I asked.
“Of course! She’s gone with the whatever portion she kept in you so you are free” He smiled.
I smiled also, trying to believe that but I’m still very afraid.
“So promise me you won’t hate Bryan” I said.
“I tore off the drawing he drew for me” He said and i gasp.
I looked at the wall and the drawing was no longer pasted there.
“Liam!! That’s bad” I said and sat up.
“Do you know the stress he went through just to draw it,you shouldn’t have tore it and besides that’s childish” I frowned.
“Whatever! I was pissed at him so i tore it off in anger, don’t blame me for that. You know i do worse things when annoyed.. thank goodness it was the drawing i tore and not his face” He said.
“Com’on Liam, Bryan is not at fault..I am. Please just don’t hate him,you know how much Bryan likes you” I said.
“I don’t hate him anymore cause my sister isn’t dieing in a year time anymore…I will call him tomorrow and tell him to draw another one for me” He said and i grinned.
“Thanks Liam…I’m so happy.. everything is great, Quilah is gone” I said and laid back on his chest.
He laughed…”Do you know that when Quilah disappeared to the living room..I almost peed in my pants”
We laughed…
“She seems so scary and beautiful at the same time” He said.
“She looked so ugly when the necklace hit her” I said.
“Yeah…just like a wild witch” Liam said and we laughed again.
“I made sure i hit her real bad”
“Me too…it was so funny and surprising cause we were afraid of her this moment and we were beating her up the next moment” I said.
We giggled….”Serves her right”
“So what do you think of my classmates?” I asked.
“Damn! They are so rash, especially the girls but I’m not surprised” He smiled.
“Of course i know you are not surprised,you’ve gotten so used to it” I said.
“Remember you are still keeping the detention prefect waiting” I laughed.
“She fell for my sweet words” He said.
“That’s unfair” I said.
“Whatever but i saved you guys from getting detained” he smiled.
“I miss Jessie” I said sadly.
“Damn! Me too” he said.
“She would have gotten on my nerves when they all came visiting today” I said.
“Yeah…but let’s forget about her and move on”
I nodded and smiled…”So what were we saying?”
“Yeah..School girls… I get approached mostly by ladies, school girls admire me” He said proudly.
“Like that’s an achievement” I teased.
“Aww… someone is jealous” he chuckled.
“Jealous my foot! I also get approached by cute guys,not only you!” I rolled my eyes.
“Lies!” He said.
“Trues!” I joked..we laughed.
“What about Kelly?” Liam asked.
“What’s wrong with him?” I asked.
“Hmm…will you consider his request?” Liam asked.
“Of course no! I can’t date Kelly..never!” I said.
“But why? You speak like he disgusts you and that’s unfair” Liam said.
“He doesn’t disgust me but i can’t even get in the fact that i will date him..i never imagined it and i don’t have feelings for him a bit so how do you expect me to cope” I said.
“Don’t tell me you still love Bryan?” Liam asked.
“Of course i still love Bryan,my feelings for him didn’t decrease a bit,it increased instead..I don’t think i will ever stop loving Bryan h…”
“He’s not gonna date you!” Liam interrupted me.
“I know he’s not gonna date me..Ive accepted the fact that he doesn’t have feelings for me,he can go on to date anyone he has feelings for but my own feelings for him will remain…I won’t love anyone else,my heart can’t and won’t even accept that” I said.
“Bryan will go on to date another person despite all you did for him and you will remain single thinking about him right?”
“It’s not my fault but my heart’s…”
“Just give Kelly a chance… please” He said.
“I don’t have feelings for Kelly just as Bryan doesn’t have feelings for me.. everyone should spare me this. Can you date someone you don’t have any sort of feelings for? My heart is in control of me not me!” I said.
“Okay…i won’t force you to date someone you don’t have feelings for but…”
I yawned..
“Are you trying to avoid this talk?” He asked.
“No..I’m actually feeling sleepy” I said and placed my head on a pillow.
“But it’s still noon”
“Yeah…I know,i need to rest” I said.
“Okay”
“See you when i wake up” i said and forcefully dragged his hair.
I turned to the other side of the bed and closed my eyes,sleep visited me and i welcomed it happily.
DINNER TIME
“Get up! Dinner is ready” I heard Liam said, shaking me from my sleep.
Aaaargh…I was so enjoying my dream.
I yawned and sat up, resisting to glare at Liam for waking me up at such time.
“Glare at me already,your big eyes looks like it might pop out of the sockets” He said and i laughed.
“You are unbelievable… making me laugh the next minute i woke up” I said.
“Yeah…have you forgotten I’m Liam” he boasted.
“It wasn’t funny,i just tried to laugh” I lied.
“You should know i always know when you are lieing so get up sis… Mum thinks you are dead already,she’s panicking at the dinning” he said.
“Really?” I laughed.
“Yeah…you slept from noon till 7:30pm,i was also afraid to wake you up at first thinking you’ve finally followed Quilah” He said and we both laughed.
I stood up from the bed..
“I’ll join you guys at the dinning, i have to rinse my mouth and face” I said.
“No I’m gonna wait for you, Quilah can pop up at any minute” he said.
I laughed and walked into his bathroom.
So neat!
I got to the sink, turn on the faucet and splashed water on my face.
I rinsed my mouth and splashed some water on my face again.
It felt so good.
I turned off the faucet and picked a napkin from the rail.
I dried my face and walked back to Liam.
He sighed in relief when he saw me come out.
I smiled…”Do you think I’m just gonna disappear?
“Yeah w..
“Litam!! Dinner is getting cold” Mum yelled from the dinning.
“Mum we are coming” We said and rushed out of the room, laughing and pushing ourselves.
Ellen’s POV
I danced in my room with no music except the one coming out from my mouth;
Quiiiiiilah…
I dare you to come here right now,
Come here…and I’m gonna shred your robe into pieces..
You always use me
Forcing me to do what i don’t want to .
But now I’m free
Freeeeeeee…. because you are goneeeeee.
Quilah byeeee….
I laughed so hard and stopped dancing.
I feel so tired… I’ve been singing and dancing for hours.
Yeah!! I need to celebrate Quilah’s disappearance.
I’ve gotten my friends back! No one is gonna die anymore,but i got so lucky.
What if she had punished me before James barged in then i would be gone with her.
But i think she can’t stay close to where the necklace is and yet James came back into the compound with the necklaces and even walked in with it yet she can’t disappear.
Maybe the necklace held her rooted to the spot just like she always hold us rooted to a spot.
Haha….good for her!
I sighed in relief and stood up,i just need to eat right now.
I’m starving.
I slide my feet into my footwear and walked out of the roo.
“Mum” I called when i got to the living room.
I walked to the kitchen when i noticed she’s on a call.
Where’s the maid?
I need to apologise to her for slapping her when Quilah told me to.
It’s been ages i cooked but i still remembered everything perfectly.
Yesss I’m gonna make casserole! Mum’s favorite…I also need to apologise for being rude all this while.
I opened the cabinet and brought out apron and cap .
I wore it and headed to the sink to wash my hands.
I rinsed and dried it and then turned to see mum standing by the door looking at me in surprise.
“Mum” I called and hugged her pecking her on both cheeks.
“Ellen is this you?” She asked.
“Of course Mum..I’m the one,i know I’ve been rude to you and Dad but I’m sorry..i was been influenced but right now,your baby girl is back” I grinned.
She looks so surprised and happily.
She pulled me into a hug and pecked my forehead..
Awwwn…I’ve missed this.
“I’ve missed you baby” She said happily.
“I missed you too mum and I’m about to prepare your favorite,I’m gonna serve you once I’m done” i grinned.
“Wow…can i ever be happier than this” She said and I’m so glad there’s pure happiness in her eyes.
“Where’s the maid?” I asked.
“She went to get some things at the grocery store”
“Okay,i planned on apologising to her also” I said.
“Wow.. Really?”
“Yes mum”
“OMG I’m calling your dad now” She said happily and jumped out of the the kitchen.
I smiled and turned,my smile froze when i saw;
Qui…
What!
Just joking,i didn’t see anything.
Haha I gat you

Kelly’s POV
I sighed as i got up from the bed.
I rubbed my burning forehead and sniffled.
I was having runny nose since yesterday night.
I couldn’t sleep and kept tossing and turning on the bed thinking about Tammy of course.
It’s morning and i just have to get up and prepare for school,we all planned to resume school today, we’ve missed some days.
I opened my wardrobe and brought out my school wears with underwear.
I sneezed twice and placed my school wears on the bed.
I walked into the bathroom and headed for my toothbrush and paste.
I sometimes get tired of this morning routine..
I walked out of the bathroom with a towel draped over my waist.
I dried my body and applied body lotion before reaching for my underwear.
I put it on and reached for my school shirt…
I stood in front of my mirror after putting on my school wears.
I don’t like the way i look…my nose looks so red making my pale skin obvious.
Should i still go to school?
Yeah…i will,seeing Tammy can make me feel better.
I put on my shoes and re-brushed my hair.
I picked my backpack and hung it over my shoulders.
I picked an hankie and blew my nose into it.
I picked two more and kept it in my backpack.
I walked out of my room….
“Good morning Mum” I greeted loudly from the dining room.
She’s in the kitchen and i don’t think i have that strength to walk there.
What’s wrong with me this morning.
I quickly took a seat on the dining chair and rested my head on the dining table.
I heard mum’s footstep.
“Kelly your breakfast is ready” She said followed by a sound of a ceramic plate hitting the dining table.
“Kelly” She called again and this time i managed to raise up my head.
“Gosh!” She exclaimed.
“What’s wrong?” She asked.
“Nothing” I said and noticed my voice sounded hoarse.
“You look sick…” She said and felt my body temperature with the back of her palm.
She gasped…”Kelly!”
“What?” I asked.
“Why didn’t you tell me you are sick?” She asked.
“I’m not sick..just a runny nose,I’m just gonna eat my breakfast and leave for school” I said and pushed the tray forward.
“No way I’m letting you go to school in this condition,you are coming with me to the hospital” She said.
“Mum which condition…I’m fine, just a runny nose” I said,truly I’m not feeling good but i can’t admit that to mum.
“Go drop your backpack,let’s leave for the hospital” She said.
“I’m not going to the hospital,we all planned to resume school today” I sniffled and rubbed my forehead,i felt nauseated and strongly restrained the urge to vomit.
Migraine!
“Kelly you are not looking fine,you need to see the way you are now.. you’re getting me worried,let’s just go to the hospital”
“I’m not going Mum” I said weakly and rested my head on the chair’s headrest.
“Geez! Kelly are you okay,if you won’t come with me to the hospital,then I’m calling your dad” She said.
“Mum! I’m fine, don’t get too dramatic about this… I’ll be leaving for school now” I said and wanted to stand up from the chair but couldn’t.
I sighed as my eyes started getting dizzy,i tried to look okay just for Mum but it got worse and i finally let out a groan.
“Kelly!”
“Tina come in!” Mum shouted.
My eyelids felt heavy and i had to close my eyes.
I don’t know if i fell asleep or unconscious but the last thing i heard was “Kelly!!”
Mara’s POV
“Bryan what happen?” I asked as we sat in the cafeteria..
It’s lunch break.
“Aren’t you aware Kelly is not in school today?” He asked.
“Of course i am” I said and chewed on my fries.
“You are not bothered?” He asked.
“Why should i be bothered,is he sick?” I asked.
“I don’t know” He said.
“Then you shouldn’t be bothered,he might just decide not to come to school today” I said and picked a slice of Ellen’s cake,she glared at me and i chuckled.
“He just can’t decide not to come to school today without a reason,we all agreed to resume school today” Bryan said.
I sighed…”So why do you think he’s not in school today?”
“I don’t know but i feel if he’s okay,he should have called me and told me the reason he’s absent from school” He said.
I shrugged…it’s nothing to be bothered about,he should be okay wherever he is..he might just be too busy to come to school today.
“Have you tried calling him?” Laura asked.
“Of course…he isn’t picking up” Bryan said worriedly.
“OMG!” Laura suddenly exclaimed.
“What?” We asked.
“I hope his parents have not resumed their fight” She said with alarm.
“That’s true!” Bryan said.
“Geez! I hope not” I said and chewed my last fry.
“I’m gonna try calling him again” Bryan said.
The cafeteria light will be off soon and we’ll go on to our class.
I eyed the last piece of cake on Ellen’s plate.
She frowned and quickly stuffed it in her mouth.
“Ugh! So stingy” I said with nose high.
“He’s not picking up” Bryan said.
“I just hope he’s okay” I said.
“Me too”
“Well let’s go to the class” I said and stood up.
“Won’t you wait for the light to go off?” Laura asked.
“We’ve all finished eating and I’m getting tempted to order more,so if i don’t leave here on time then…..”
“Let’s go” Ellen stood up, followed by Laura then Bryan.
We walked back to the class, Bryan kept murmuring about Kelly.
SCHOOL OVER
“Should we go check on Kelly at home?” Bryan asked as we all headed to our cars in the parking lot.
“But why?” I asked.
“He wasn’t in school today”
“So? He might be busy Bryan, he’ll come tomorrow” I said not feeling like going to anyone’s house. I want to go home, freshen up,eat and then sleep.
I’m so tired,the whole class bombarded me with questions when i walked into the class this morning and i had to answer them all.
They were all happy I’ve resumed school but i keep having this unamed feeling concerning the remaining one year im gonna use.
Quilah is gone doesn’t mean the seal is changed.
I’m gonna go confirm from Doc Mart,i will redo the test,if it comes out that I’m safe then good but if it comes out like I’m thinking,I’m just gonna keep it to myself and prepare on my departure in the next year to come.
“He’s calling!” Bryan almost shouted, making me close the door to my thoughts.
He smiled as he swiped to the receiver,he placed it on his ear and we all waited.
Hey buddy…
**We didn’t hear what Kelly was saying at the other end but i furrowed my brows when his face changed.
Kelly was unconscious?” He asked and we gasped.
….
W..where is he?” He asked.
….
We are on our way.
“Kelly was about coming to school this morning when he fell unconscious” Bryan said and a tear dropped out of his eyes.
Why is he crying?
“What happened to him exactly?” Laura asked.
“I don’t know till we get there” He said.
“Damn! We need to go see him” Ellen said.
“Yes”
“He’s conscious now right?” I asked.
“Yeah…he’s at home with his mum and doctor”
“Let’s go check on him fast,i need to go home” I said.
They turned to look at me and i gave them a questioning look.
“What? Why are you all staring at me. Let’s go check on Kelly..whose car are we going in?” I asked.
“My car” Bryan said.
“Alright,a minute. I gotta tell Max to go home” i said and headed to where Max is standing,the rest also did the same except Bryan.
“Hey Max, good afternoon” i greeted.
“How are you?”
“I’m fine,we just got a call that Kelly is sick so we’re all going to his house in Bryan’s car” i said.
“Alright..I’m free to leave then?”
“Of course…bye Max” I said.
“Bye Mara”
I turned and started walking back to Bryan’s car, Ellen was also doing so and we both met and walked together.
“Mara” She called.
“Huh?” I asked.
“Do you hate Kelly?” She asked.
“Gosh! Hell no,why would you say that?” I asked.
“I’m very sure if it was Bryan that fell unconscious,you would have willingly jumped out of the gate for him” She said.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“We were told Kelly fell unconscious and you didn’t act like you care, that’s unfair” She said.
“I didn’t act like i care? Of course i care, Kelly is my friend so why won’t i care and what am i being unfair about?” I asked unhappily.
“You both should hurry up” Bryan shouted from his car.
We quickened our steps and we were in Bryan’s car in no time.
Rollins drove into Kelly’s compound and parked at a suitable spot.
We all stepped out of the car and Bryan, Laura and Ellen already dashed to the door.
What’s wrong with these ones?
I also ran after them,i don’t want anyone saying i don’t care again.
His mum opened the door and i saw her face red with tears.
Is he not yet conscious?
“What happened to Kelly?” We chorused.
She smiled…”He fell unconscious in the morning but my doctor has attended to him,he’s fine now” She said.
Bryan heaved a loud sigh of relief.
“Thank goodness” I muttered.
“My bad! You all should come in” She said and paved way for us.
We entered and i was a little bit wowed.
This is the first time i will be allowed into Kelly’s living room and this is the second time i will be visiting his house.
“He’s in his room right?” Bryan asked.
“Yeah, what do you all care for?” She asked.
“We are okay ma’am” we chorused.
“Let’s go check on him” Bryan said and started walking towards the stairs.
“Do you know his room?” I asked.
He laughed…”of course”.
We followed his lead until we got to Kelly’s door.
He pulled it open and we walked in.
I was wowed again by the setting of his room.
Kelly is really living big and yet he acts like one poor guy.
He’s sleeping cutely on the bed,with an almost finished drip connected to his arm.
A beautiful female doctor was beside him, packing her things back into a box.
“Good afternoon” We greeted.
“Good afternoon”She smiled..”You are gonna wake him” She said to Bryan who was already beside Kelly.
“Is he going to be fine?” He asked.
“Of course he will..infact,he’s already fine,once he wakes up..he’s just gonna eat and rest” She said.
“What really happened to him? Why was he unconscious?” Laura asked.
“He has been thinking a lot,and having sleepless nights. Having little sleep can make one weak. His was so much to the extent that he fell unconscious,he will be fine” She said.
“What could he be thinking about?” Ellen asked.
Bryan glanced at me and i sighed.
“Bryan can you tell me what Kelly is thinking about,his dad and i already stopped fighting” Kelly’s mum said worriedly.
I hadn’t noticed she came in behind us.
“I..i don’t know what he could be thinking about” Bryan said glancing at me occasionally.
Why the glance huh?
I’m not the one he’s thinking about,he’s thinking about the school work he has missed not me!
Kelly’s mum followed the doctor out of the room.
Thank goodness the doctor said he will be fine,
I have to leave now…I need to go rest.
I cleared my throat.
“I would have loved to wait till he wakes up but i have to go” I said.
“Mara!” Bryan exclaimed while Laura and Ellen glared at him.
“What?” I asked confusingly.
“You mean you are leaving?” He asked.
“Bryan was that the reason you yelled?” I asked.
“Why would you leave!”
“Why won’t i leave? Should i babysit him! The doctor said he’s fine and i need to go home to rest,I’m not feeling so well” I said, getting pissed they are thinking that I’m not caring enough.
“Mara that’s not nice” Laura said .
“Seriously what’s wrong with you Mara?” Ellen asked.
“What’s all this?” I restrained myself from yelling.
“You can leave if you want to, we’ll tell him you stop by” Bryan said.
“Alright,then why the yell… Bye guys,see you all tomorrow” I said and turned to leave.
“Mara like seriously you are leaving?” Laura asked.
“What?!” I yelled loudly turning in the process.
They shifted back.
“What do you want me to do? Consider my explanation also, you’ll thinking I’m not caring..I am! Kelly is my friend and i care about him but i just have to go home,i don’t understand how I’m feeling..i need to leave” I said and walked to the door.
I held the door knob and turned,they all stood staring at me.
I saw Kelly’s eyes open.
“He’s awake” I said to them, turned the door knob and walked out of the room.
I alighted from the cab in front of my house and walked to the gate.
I paid him already.
I knocked on the gate waiting for James.
The gate was opened but not by James but Max.
“Where’s James?” I asked.
“He went to get something” He said.
“Okay” i said and started walking to the main door.
“How’s your friend feeling and you are back earlier than we thought ” Max said.
“He’s fine and do you think I’m gonna spend the night there?” I asked and walked to the door.
I’m not usually this rude but why do everyone keep expecting me to spend the whole time with Kelly.
I opened the door and walked in.
Liam and Mum was at the living room and surprisingly none of them was watching movie.
“Mara how’s Kelly?” Liam asked.
“Good afternoon Mum” I greeted.
“How’s Kelly?” Liam asked again.
“He’s fine” i said and started walking up to my room.
“Mara” he called.
“What?” I turned.
“I said how’s Kelly?” He asked.
“LIAM, AND I HE’S FINE” I shouted before i could stop myself.
“What’s wrong?” Mum asked.
“You mean what’s wrong with me or Kelly?” I asked.
“Kelly,i can understand your mood right now” She said.
Understand my mood?
How?
“Kelly fell unconscious in the morning but now he’s fine,placed on drip” I said.
“Why are you home?” Liam asked.
“Am i to sleep on the road?” I asked.
“Is Bryan still with him?” He asked.
“Yeah with Laura and Ellen ” I said.
“Then why are you home,can’t you also wait with the poor guy?” He asked.
“The doctor said he’ll be fine or rather he’s fine so what else do i have to wait for?” I asked.
“Mara that’s unfair, Kelly stood by you and refused to go home while you were at the hospital and now he’s sick,I’m very sure you didn’t spend up to an hour with him. What the hell is wrong with you?” Liam blasted.
“What the Bleep is wrong with everyone! Do you’ll expect me to spend the whole day and night with him. I know he stood by me at the hospital but i don’t just know how I’m feeling, that’s the reason i just have to come home and besides he’s FINE! Go babysit him if you wish” I hissed and started climbing the stairs.
“Liam, let her be” Mum shouted.
I turned and saw Liam at the edge of the stairs.
I chuckled “Were you about to hit me?”
“I can’t hit you but do you really have to be this way? Kelly confessed his feelings to you does not mean you should treat him this way,this is totally unfair!” He said.
“Everyone should just leave me alone! Let me be!” I yelled and stomped to my room.
I sighed angrily as i entered my room.
I dropped my backpack on the couch and started pulling off my shoes.
I was about sitting on the bed when i noticed i felt wet.
I stood straight and quickly walked to the calendar.
It was yesterday i marked but it turned out to be today.
Damn! I should have known there was more to my mood swing.
It’s a shame mum knows me than i know myself.
If i dont feel pains when on my period then my mood takes the blame.
No wonder i didn’t feel so good and was yelling at everyone.
But is this really the reason i don’t want to stay with Kelly?…I guess so but i would have stayed with him if i like so I’m not gonna blame my mood for that.
I feel like spanking myself..I can’t believe i yelled at Bryan,what would he think of me? I’m just gonna apologise to him tomorrow.
I was done freshening up and was putting on my blue tank top,my black shorts came next and i combed my hair.
I packed it in a high ponytail, slipped into my footwear and walked out of my room.
I’m hungryyyyy…
*
I saw Liam and Mum at the living room but this time they were watching a movie.
I felt bad about the way i spoke to Liam but I’m not gonna apologise first.
It’s not my fault but this nature of a thing.
I walked to the kitchen.
I sighed and thought of what to make,i just wished we had a Kitchener.
Noodles will be fine.
I sat at the dining eating the noodles i prepared when Liam walked past me to the kitchen.
Well..I remained some noodles for him.
I thought he was eating the noodles i prepared for him but was surprised when he came out with a cup of cereal, milk,sugar and water all placed on a tray.
He walked past me to the living room and then i know he’s really angry with me.
Like i care!
I continued eating my noodles staring at the wall and thinking in the process.
Im sure Kelly saw me walked out of his room.
What actually got into me to behave that way.
I had known things won’t be the same between us anymore the moment he confessed his feelings to me but that does not bring about what i did today.
Fine! I’m just gonna apologise.
“Mum..I will be in my room” i said after i finished washing the dish.
“Alright” She said.
My eyes met with Liam,he gave me a glare before looking away.
I shrugged and climbed the stairs to my room.
I opened the door and stepped in.
A chill ran down my spine and i quickly scanned my room.
Nothing!
What was i expecting.
Why do i feel like going back to the living room.
I closed the door behind me and walked to my bed.
I picked my phone as i sat down.
I thought of calling Bryan but later resorted to playing games.
Aaaargh…I have some assignments to do.
I dropped my phone and stared at my backpack on the shelf.
“Can’t you just come meet me yourself,do i have to always get up to get you” I said tiredly.
I got the shock of my life when the backpack moved from the shelf down to bed,just beside me.
I screamed….”Mummy!!”
„DONT SHOUT,YOU WON’T BE HEARD“ The most gentle voice I’ve ever heard said.
I opened my eyes and saw the most handsome man on Earth in a pure white robe.
His face alone made me felt at ease,he looks kind but i was still scared.
How did he get in here?
Quilah’s sibling?
„IM KIMPTHUD,THE GOD OF PEACE“
Wow!
„I’VE BEEN HERE FOR SOME HOURS BUT I CHOSE TO REMAIN INVISIBLE TO YOU,I GOT YOUR BACKPACK FOR YOU, DIDN’T YOU WISH FOR IT TO COME TO YOU“ He chuckled and i held myself from smiling.
“You are a the god of peace?” I asked.
„YES,TAMARA WESTON”
I’m not surprised he knows my name.
“Do you by any chance know Quilah?” I asked.
„YES, SHE’S A FRIEND OF MINE. SHE WASN’T SO KIND,SHE MISUSED HER POWERS,HER DEPARTURE WAS A SAD ONE FOR ME AND I MISS HER DEARLY…IM HERE CONCERNING YOU“
“I? Is there anything?” I asked.
„I TRIED TO STOP QUILAH,WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT HURTING YOU,I WENT TO HER CAVE AND TOLD HER TO SPARE YOU BUT SHE REFUSED“
“You mean,you told her to spare me?”
„YES.“
“Wow! Thanks” I smiled.
„I DO THAT A LOT FOR QUILAH’S CAPTIVE,SHE LISTENS TO ME MOST OF THE TIME BUT SHE WAS SO ADAMANT ON YOUR CASE,I LEFT HER TO DO AS SHE WISHED AND THAT CAUSED HER DEPARTURE… REMEMBER QUILAH SAID YOU HAVE A YEAR TO LIVE,YOU THINK IT’S ALL GONE WITH QUILAH RIGHT? YOU ARE WRONG,YOU STILL HAVE A YEAR TO LIVE“ He said and my heart thumped faster.
I knew it!
“I don’t want to die, please help me” i said starting to cry.
„THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO CAUSE QUILAH ALREADY SEALED IT, WHETHER IN HER DEPARTURE OR PRESENCE.. ANYTHING SHE SEALED WILL HAPPEN WITH NOTHING TO STOP IT,IF QUILAH HAD TAKEN BACK WHAT SHE GAVE YOU BEFORE SHE LEFT THEN YOU WILL BE SPARED BUT SHE DIDN’T,WHICH MEANS YOU ARE STILL AMONG HER CAPTIVES“
I bursted into tears…”Help me please i don’t want to die, please help me” I cried.
„I WISH THERE’S SOMETHING I CAN DO BUT THERE’S NOTHING,I CAN’T CHANGE ANYTHING QUILAH SEALS,I CAN ONLY PERSUADE HER TO CHANGE IT BUT NOW SHES GONE. I CAME TO TELL YOU THIS SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR DAYS ON EARTH…ITS SO SAD LOVE BLINDED YOU TO DO WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE NOT. I WILL LEAVE NOW“
“Plea…” I was pleading but noticed he already left.
“I knew it” i said and cried hard on the bed.
I have a year to live!!

Bryan’s POV
“Why did Tammy leave?” Kelly asked immediately Mara walked out of the door.
“S..she her mum called her” Laura said.
“I heard everything,i didn’t know she hated me that much” He said with so much pain in his voice.
“Com’on Kelly,you know how Mara is. She doesn’t mean a thing,it’s just her mood swing” Ellen said.
He nodded…”Thanks but you guys can leave now”
We stared at him in surprise.
“Kelly…are you okay? We came here to stay with you” i said.
“I know but just leave,i need to rest” He said.
“Are you asking us to leave because of Mara?” Laura asked.
“No…I don’t want anyone around me, please leave” He said.
“Buddy,we came all the way from school to see you,you can’t ask us to leave. Should i call Mara to come back?” I asked.
“No” He said and i noticed his eyes were clouded with tears.
“Kelly we are here for you, trust me Mara is gonna apologise” Ellen said.
“I’m sorry but i need to be left alone, Leave..I’m gonna come to school tomorrow” He said.
Laura shook her head and sigh.
“I can’t believe you are asking us to leave because of Mara” Ellen said and picked her backpack.
Laura also did the same.
“We should leave?” I asked and he nodded.
I stood up and also picked my backpack.
“Bye” We chorused sadly and walked out of his room.
His mum was about coming in.
“You guys are leaving so soon?” She asked.
“Kelly asked us to leave” Ellen said and walked away angrily.
Laura followed.
“Kelly asked them to leave? Including you?” She asked in surprise.
“Yes ma’am” i smiled.
I understand how he’s feeling.
“Bye ma’am” I said and walked away.
NEXT DAY AT SCHOOL
“I don’t like all this” Ellen said to me.
We were all seated in the classroom.
Kelly walked into the class and sat down without saying hi to anyone.
We said hi but was ignored.
We asked what was wrong but got ignored again.
Mara also did the same.
I understand Kelly’s but Mara… what’s wrong.
Her eyes looks so red like she’s been crying.
Mara can’t do without saying hi to me but she just acted like i was not there.
“I don’t like this also” I said.
“What’s wrong with them?” Laura whispered from her seat.
“I don’t know” I sighed.
“Mara is anything the matter?” I asked and was glad to get a response which was the shaking of her head.
“Kelly” I called.
He glanced at me “Huh?”
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Nothing” He said.
“You sure?” I asked.
He nodded and turned back to his book.
I caught him looking worriedly at Mara.
He should talk to her already.
Could Mara be sad because im not reciprocating her feelings?
I planned on making her my girlfriend,even though i don’t love her. We can still cope with it.
I can’t let her remain sad, considering the hell she went through just for me.
I’m gonna stretch out everything at the garden during lunch break.
I glanced at Laura and almost changed my mind.
Damn! Those blue eyes are captivating.
Laura has this character that moves me a lot .. she loves being herself.
“I’m sorry for the way i reacted yesterday” I heard Mara said and then turned to her.
I saw that she was talking to me.
She should apologise to Kelly not me.
“Mara, apologise to Kelly,not me” I said.
“I’m apologising for yelling at you not because of anything else” She blurted to my surprise.
Wow! Mara never talks to me this way.
“Kelly I’m sorry” She said.
“For what?” He asked.
“Don’t pretend you don’t know,i can’t stress myself over words” She said.
“Specify the reason you are apologising to me” He said.
“Kelly,i actually don’t know what you want. You should be contented that i came to visit you yesterday instead you’re getting all swollen about it. You were awake the entire time and listened to me say i have to go cause i wasn’t feeling too well,yet you are getting annoyed that i didn’t stay with you…you can pay me for babysitting yunno” Mara hissed surprising me more.
“Mara!” I exclaimed.
“What?” She asked.
“Mara tha..”
“Hey! Hold on to yourself,no one should get on my nerves” She interrupted Ellen.
“I should be shocked by your words but I’m not cause i know you don’t like me” Kelly said.
“Whatever” Mara said.
Kelly smiled sadly and shook his head.
“This is the end of my feelings for you” He said.
Damn!
“OMG really? That’s the best news I’ve heard, thanks so much Kelly.thank goodness you did that soon cause if you hadn’t,your sweet feelings are just gonna go to waste. I don’t love you a bit..im sorry” Mara said.
“Yeah” Kelly forced a smile.
“Now i can be so free around you” Mara said happily.
“What’s wrong with the both of you?” I asked.
“Yeah what’s wrong with the both of you?” Ellen also asked.
“Like? Am i acting out of proportion?” She asked.
“Yes you are! I can’t believe this is you Mara” I said.
” If I’m acting out of proportion then you guys are the cause” She said.
“How?” I asked.
“Everyone should just let me be for the entire day” she said.
“Wow!” Laura exclaimed and i had to breath out at the way her lips looked when she pronounced ‘Wow’
There is a more serious matter at hand,yet I’m thinking about someone’s lips.
Mrs Ardsley walked into the classroom.
“Good morning class” She said.
“Good morning Mrs Ardsley” We chorused.
LUNCH BREAK
We all sat round the table with our lunch waiting for Mara to come join us.
She didn’t allow me nor Kelly to order her lunch like we normally do. Instead, she went to get it herself.
She returned with her tray of lunch,sat down and started eating.
“Mara,you were the one we were waiting for,yet you just sat down and started eating without acknowledging us” Laura said.
Mara ignored her and continued eating.
We also started eating in silence and the strain was obvious.
We were all affected by Mara’s behavior.
*
She finished eating and stood up to go back to the classroom.
I stood up after her.
“I’m coming guys” i said and walked fast to meet up with her.
“Can you come with me to the garden?” I asked.
She shrugged and led the way.
We got to the garden and she sat on a bench rubbing a petal in her palm.
She looked so sad.
“Mara” I called.
“Huh?” She asked.
“What’s wrong?” She asked.
“Nothing… what do you wanna say?” She asked.
“Hmm… Mara,you went through a lot because of me, because you love me and wanted me to love you back”
“Yeah..and so?” She asked.
“I want you to be my girlfriend even if i feel nothing for you,just to make you happy” I said.
She laughed “You want me to be your girlfriend?”
“Yes”
“Out of pity?” She asked.
“No but…”
“What do you take me for?” She asked.
“I didn’t mean it like that,i can get to love you” I said.
“I would have being the happiest person on Earth if you had said this like two days ago but right now. I mean right now,i don’t want to have anything to do with you or anyone else anymore” She said.
“What!” I exclaimed in surprise.
“Don’t be surprised,i still love you. My feelings for you can never erase but is that gonna pay for the limited days i have on earth”
“Limited days? But Quilah is gone” I said.
“I can’t confide in you anymore,just go for the Laura you love…”She said shocking me to the bone.
She knows i love Laura!
I turned my face away sadly,i turned to her when i heard her sniffed.
“I’m gonna keep my distance from everyone for now. Is that all you have to say?” She asked and i nodded.
She stood up but i quickly stopped her.
“You’re not interested in being my girlfriend?” I asked.
“You don’t love me,that’s enough for me to turn down your proposal”
“Then would you…. accept Kelly’s?” I asked.
She hissed and walked away.
I sighed and watched her leave.
Mara changed just in the space of a day.
She was more accommodating yesterday but now she totally shut everyone out.
Why can’t i love her back,I’m so crazy. She did all that for me and yet I’m loving another person.
It’s not my fault but my heart’s.
What did she meant by having limited days on earth?
That was before Quilah was defeated and now she’s free.
Is she still thinking about the past?
Mara has her ways of handling things and i believe she will come back to us soon.
I’m so worried about her.
Should i press her further?
It seems she doesn’t even enjoy my company anymore.
I stood up and also walked to the classroom.
***
“Mara… Mara wait” I called after her.
School’s over and she just took her backpack and walked out of the classroom.
Is she serious about not having anything to do with anyone anymore.
Solely written by Azeemah Salami
We looked at ourselves and sighed.
“What happened?” Laura asked.
“I don’t know” I said and picked my backpack.
“I don’t just get the reason Mara would behave that way” Ellen said.
Kelly looked worried without saying anything.
“She actually said she wants to keep her distance from everyone” I said.
“Really?” Ellen asked.
“Yes..I’m so worried,she looked so sad and mentioned having limited days on earth” I said.
“Really!” Kelly exclaimed and ran after her.
We also ran after him.
We got to the parking lot and surprisingly she has left.
We quickly walked to Max who was about entering the car.
“Max” I called.
“Oh.. Bryan how are you?”
“I’m fine… where’s Mara?” I asked.
He looked surprised…”She left already and wait…is this not the sick Kelly?”
“Yes i am…what do you mean by Tammy already left?” Kelly asked.
“She told me to go home that she’s going to your place to check on you” Max said to our surprise.
We glanced at one another.
“OMG!” Ellen exclaimed.
“What?”
“I hope she’s not about to hurt herself” She said and we all gasped.
“She wouldn’t have gone too far..let’s go” Max said and we all hopped into the car.
“Mara” Ellen cried.
Mara’s POV
It’s night already..
I cried as i roam the streets.
I don’t want to go home yet.
FLASHBACK
“Good afternoon Doc Mart” I greeted.
I had lied to Max that i was going to check on Kelly.
“Good afternoon tamara,how are you?”
“Fine Doc Mart” I said.
“Did your mum sent you here?” He asked and i shook my head.
“No Doc Mart,i came here myself and i would like if you don’t tell mum or anyone about my visit” I said.
“Huh? Why?” He asked.
“The reasons are best known to me and i would like if you will respect my decision” I said.
“Okay”
“I’m here because,i want you to retake a test on me,my system to be precise” i said.
“We already did that” he said.
“Yeah i know, that was the reason i said ‘retake’ I’ll pay for it, please just do it for me. I have to be sure” I said.
“Okay, I’m gonna take a sample of your blood now and take it to the lab,will you wait or come back later cause it might take hours” He said.
“Thanks Doc Mart…I’m gonna wait” I said.
*
“Will you wait in here or the reception?” He asked after collecting a sample of my blood.
I rubbed the back of my palm in pain.
“I will just stay in here” I said.
He nodded and walked out of the office.
Why did i come here for a test even after knowing that god is right.
I can’t just help but hate everyone immediately.
They all irritate me.
They are all gonna live long while i will be gone soon,i will be forgotten and they will move on with their lives and yet they were the ones who caused my upcoming death.
I don’t want to associate with any of them anymore.
They are fools!
I hate them!
How could Bryan love Laura who didn’t do anything for him.
How could he!
Im about to die because of him and he has that gut to tell me he doesn’t have feelings for me!
I’m just so pissed right now.
I hate him.
I couldn’t stop my tears as i placed my head on the doctor’s desk and waited for him to come back with the result.
**
“Tamara” I heard and felt a tap on my shoulder.
I opened my eyes and raised up my head from the desk.
I looked around and noticed I’m in the doctor’s office.
My eyes met with the result in Doc Mart’s hand and my heart skipped a beat.
I glanced at the wall clock.
6:39pm…Wow!
If i hadn’t switched off my phone,it would have been destroyed with calls.
“The result of your test is out” He said and sat on his swiveled chair opposite me.
I swallowed hard as he brought it out from the white envelope.
He stretched it to me but i refused to take it.
“R..read it for me” I said.
He sighed…”Tamara,the result is the same with last time if not worst”
My heart broke completely and i sniffed back tears.
“The strange portion is still in your system and it has spread faster than i even expected. It’s just so sad but to be sincere with you. You have just months to live” He said sadly.
I let out the tears i was holding…
Wait…what did i expect to hear?
Like; Mara the strange portion is no longer in your system.
Mara it’s a surprise but you are now free,you have forever to live.
Congratulations Mara, the test result states that you are not dieing anymore.
Hell no!
The god told me and i was a fool for not believing him.
Now I’ve got what i want.
I’m now very sure i will be gone soon.
I cleaned my tears and took the result from Doc Mart with a little bow.
“Will you be okay?” He asked. I nodded.
“Should i call your mum?” He asked.
“No” i almost yelled.
I quickly walked out of his office and headed out of the hospital.
END OF FLASHBACK
And that was how i refused to go home till 8pm.
Without looking at the mirror,i already know i looked terrible.
I sighed knowing how mum and Liam would be so worried.
I quickly stopped a cab.
“Lington estate phase 3” I said before hopping in.
I thought i can live with knowing i have just a year but i can’t.
I can’t be happy knowing i will be gone soon from this beautiful world.
How could i be so daft!
How could i succumb to the power of love!
Why wasn’t i contented!
Why! Why! Why!
“Miss are you okay?” The driver asked.
“Face your business!” I yelled in tears.
“Sorry Miss” He said and continued driving.
Mum and Liam had been so relaxed with the fact that I’m no longer dieing.
How will i break this to them?
I did not plan on doing that anytime soon.
I don’t want them being sad again.
The cab stopped and i realised it’s in front of my house.
I placed his bill on the back seat and alighted.
I walked inside the open gate.
Damm! They are obviously searching for me for leaving the gate opened.
I hurried to the door and pulled it open.
I walked in…
“Max you shouldn’t have allowed her leave!” Mum cried.
“She’s here!”
I was infuriated to see Bryan, Laura,Ellen and Kelly.
I should have known they will be here acting like they care.
I hissed as they all rushed to me.
I stopped Ellen with a finger from hugging me.
“Mara where have you been?” Mum sniffed.
“Tam we’ve been worried about you,why did you lie to Max? Where have you been?” Liam asked.
“Ma..”
“Shush!” I interrupted Bryan.
“I went out and mum I’m sorry for coming back late” I said and pushed Laura out of the way walking to my room.
I turned.
“I want this to be last time i will ever see any of you in my house! Our friendship cease from this moment” i said and climbed the stairs leaving the shocked.
I got to my room and started fresh tears.
TWO WEEKS LATER
Bryan’s POV
I walked into my room sadly after returning from school.
I’ve always returned home sad for the past two weeks.
We’re no longer Mara’s friends, she no longer talk to us,she’s gonna ignore if we try to talk to her,she now eat in a separate table at the cafeteria,she requested for a change of seat but Mr Allen didn’t grant it because she does not have a concrete reason. Mara has become so mean to everyone, and ive caught her severally crying silently.
There’s something wrong somewhere but she does not want to open up.
I’m so worried.
We are all affected by Mara’s silence,we don’t talk and joke with one another anymore, everyone is concerned about her,she keeps shutting us out anytime we try to get close.
I sighed and dropped my backpack on the couch.
I pulled off my shoes and socks before sitting on a chair.
I removed my pullover and unzipped my backpack.
I should freshen up before doing my assignment.
I stood up and was about to walk to the bathroom when i heard my phone ring.
I pulled it out of my backpack and stared at the screen.
“Ellen”
We’ve ended things a week ago which completed the three months of our dare.
She hasn’t called me since then.
I swiped to the receiver..
Hey Ellen.
Bryan” She called and i think i heard her sniffle.
What’s wrong?
She bursted into tears and i got scared.
Ellen what went wrong?” I asked worriedly.
I..I……
You are what? What happened Ellen?
I..I’m pregnant!
Damn!!!

Ellen’s POV
I just returned from school and quickly went to sit on one of the couches in the living room due to how weak i was feeling.
Mum came down the stairs and saw me laying on the couch.
“Ellen” She called.
“Hi mum” I said.
“How are you?” She asked.
“I’m not fine Mum” I mumbled and closed my eyes.
“What happened?” She asked.
“I feel weak continuously … I’m just gonna make sure i start eating enough meal” I said.
“You mean you feel weak continuously?” She asked and i nodded.
“Yes Mum, don’t scold me for not eating much” I said.
“Go freshen up,you are coming with me to the hospital” She said.
“Mum! I just feel weak,that’s it! Nothing else…I promise I’m gonna start eating enough meal from now on” I said.
“I know but you’ll come with me,the doctor needs to run a test on you so we can know the reason you get sick continuously” She said.
I sighed…”it’s because i don’t eat and i think i told you about Mara’s new behavior which is bothering me..I don’t eat at times,i just worry about Mara but i promise I’m gonna start eating enough from now on” I said.
“Its just a test El,it won’t take long. Just go freshen up and join me downstairs” She said.
“Being weak is not sickness,why do i have to run a test” I said.
“Will you listen to mum! Go freshen up now and join me” She said sternly.
I pouted “Stop being stern,it doesn’t fit your beautiful face”
She smiled.
“Okay I’ll go freshen up and join you,just a test and I’m gonna return home” I sang as i ran up to my room.
**
I was done freshening up,clad in a black mini gown and blue flip flops,i packed my hair in a low ponytail with a blue hair pack.
My phone is in the pocket of my gown.
“Mum I’m ready” I said as i got to the living room.
She was looking worried.
“Mum what’s wrong?” I asked.
“Huh?”
“You look worried” I said and dragged her hair gently.
“It’s nothing…let’s go” She said.
“Okay Mum…I will lead the way” i said and jumped in front of her.
“Oh..you can as well drive” She said and i laughed.
“And we can as well be admitted in the hospital we are going” I said and we both laughed.
We got outside and I hopped into the backseat of mum’s Lexus.
She got in the front, behind the wheels.
She glanced at me at the back before turning on the ignition.
Mike opened the gate and she drove out slowly.
I collected my phone from my pocket and unlocked it.
I played games till we got to the hospital.
Mum parked in the little parking space.
“I won’t be surprised if Doc Mitch looks at you weirdly for bringing your daughter because she complained of being weak” I said.
She smiled and unlocked the car door.
“We can still go back home” I said.
“Too late,we are here already” She said and got down from the car.
I sighed and threw my phone in the pocket before getting down.
Mum locked the car and we both walked into the hospital.
The nurses at the reception are familiar with us.
“Good afternoon Mrs Blaise” They greeted.
“Good afternoon nurses…how are you?” Mum asked.
“Fine ma’am”
“Good. We’re here to see Doc Mitch” Mum said.
“She has been in the theatre since morning, performing a surgery but i assure you she will be done soon” One of the nurses said.
Mum sighed.
“Mum let’s just leave for home” I whispered to her.
“Are you sure she will be done soon?” Mum asked making me roll my eyes.
“Yes ma’am..oh…she’s here already” The nurse said and pointed at our backs.
We turned and saw the beautiful nurse walking towards us.
It’s been ages i saw her.
I don’t get sick so i don’t visit the hospital regularly.
“Oh… Miss Blaise” She said with a grin.
“Nurse Mitch,how have you been?” Mum asked.
“I’ve been fine, have you been here for long?” She asked.
“No..we came just now”
“Hi Nurse Mitch” I said.
“Ellen how are you?” She asked.
“I’m fine” I smiled.
“Wow..you look more big and beautiful” She said but i didn’t blush.
“You came to see me right? Let’s go to my office,i was on a surgery since morning and damn! It was tedious” She said.
“Aww…I hope it was successful?” Mum asked as we walked to nurse Claire’s office.
“Yes it was and I’m so glad” She said.
We got to the door and she produced a key then inserted ut into the lock.
She twitched it,then it opened.
She walked in and of course we walked in after her.
She hanged her surgical wears behind her chair and motioned for us to sit.
We did and she also sat opposite us with a smile.
If only she knew mum is about to complain about my little weakness,she won’t get too serious.
“Nurse Mitch,i came here for Ellen,she complained of feeling weak regularly and i was so worried and decided for her to have a test. I want to know what the problem is” Mum said.
Which problem!
“Okay” Nurse Mitch sighed.
“I’m gonna run a test for her but i need to ask her some questions” She said.
I nodded.


“So..you feel weak regularly right?” She asked.
“Yes…but i know it’s because i don’t eat much” I said.
She smiled…”Are there other symptoms?”
“No..just that I feel like vomiting every morning but i won’t so i guess that’s what’s making me weak,it started a week ago” I said.
“Really?” She asked seriously.
I nodded.
“We need to run the test now,come with me” She said and stood up.
“Mrs Blaise, we’ll be right back” She said to mum who only nodded.
I followed her out of the office.
***
We returned to her office after she ran the whatever test.
“Mrs Blaise,you must be bored” She said to Mum.
“Ah no,i was not.. you didn’t spend up to an hour” She said.
Nurse Mitch and i sat down.
“So is the result out?” Mum asked.
“Hmm…it should be out,I’ve sent a nurse to collect it and bring it here” She said.
Mum nodded and looked at me.
“It’s been so long you came here” Nurse Mitch said to Mum.
“Oh .. Yes,i always want to stop by at times to say hi but i know the nature of your job..I might not meet you in the office and i won’t want to disturb” Mum said.
I brought out my phone when i noticed they are about to start one of their boring conversations.
I logged in to my Instagram account.
Notifications flowed it and i had to read it one after the other, skipping the annoying ones.
I replied to the messages i should and ignored the ugly ones .
I glanced up when the door to Nurse Mitch’s office opened.
A nurse came in with a folded white paper.
“Good afternoon Mrs Blaise” She greeted mum and handed the paper to Nurse Mitch.
“How have you been?” Mum asked.
“Fine ma’am” She bowed and walked out.
Nurse Claire opened the paper and gasp.
She wiped off her face and stared at me.
OMG have i developed some sort of disease.
Hell no!
“Nurse Mitch,what’s the content of the result?” Mum asked.
“Ellen how old are you?” She asked.
“I’m sixteen”
“When last did you saw your period and when last did you had sex?” She asked and my heart thumped faster.
“I..i it was a month ago or two that i had sex and I’ve not seen my period since then. I had finished my monthly period before having sex and I’ve not seen it since then but I’m expecting it by the end of this week” I said.
“Ellen you are pregnant” She said and my heart stopped for a moment.
“What!” Mum screamed.
I.. I’m pregnant?
For Bryan?
I..i..
“No I’m not pregnant” I said in a shaky voice.
“You are! You are three weeks pregnant. I wonder why you didn’t use protection” She said disappointedly.
My neck felt heavy as i turned to look at Mum.
I nearly fainted at the look i saw in her eyes.
Sadness!
Disappointment!
Disbelief!
Shock!
Haaa…I can’t be pregnant!!
But it’s true! I’m pregnant! There is a tiny baby growing in me right now.
What’s gonna happen to my dream!
How am i gonna cope.
Will i have to stop schooling.
I’m such a disgrace!
I shattered my dreams just because of enjoyment.
I..I’m done!
I should just kill myself…
I felt a drop of water dropped on my palm and i realised i was sobbing.
I sobbed loudly looking at mum at interval… she looked shocked.
“Ellen,were you raped?” She asked slowly..
“N..o i was not,I..i did it myself” I cried..
“Without protection?” She asked.
“I didn’t know i could ever get pregnant,i was so foolish” I sniffed.
“Ellen,I’m disappointed! You are 16 for goodness sake!” Mum yelled.
“I’m sorry Mum..i..I’m sorry” I said.
“What’s gonna happen to you? Pregnancy is a difficult task,you are too young for it… Ellen what’s gonna happen to your education, how’s your dad gonna feel” Mum said sadly and i cried loudly.
“I’m not pregnant,she needs to retake the test..mum please I’m sorry” I said.
“Nurse Mitch what are we gonna do?” Mum asked.
“I don’t know… Ellen I’m just so disappointed” She said..
“I don’t want the baby,i want it gone” I said and they both looked at me in surprise.
“You want it gone?” Nurse Mitch asked.
“Yes,i don’t wa…”
“Will you shut up! You want what gone? You are thinking of abortion right..you are not 18 yet and even if you are,i would never allow the abortion… you’ll give birth to the baby” Mum said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
Re: JUST FOR LOVE >> Zeemah Writes by emperorblog21(m): 9:42am On Dec 05, 2019
Yeah Ellen,you’ll give birth to the baby” Nurse Mitch.
“You mean I’m gonna be pregnant for nine months and give birth to one tiny baby?” I asked.
“Yes…Ellen i didn’t even know you’ve started having sex! Why didn’t you tell me,i could have advised you” Mum said.
“I’m sorry Mum but i don’t want the baby,that means I’ll stop schooling, what’s gonna happen to my dream, I’ll be the talk of the school… Mum please let her remove the baby” I cried.
“You’ll stop schooling once the baby bump gets obvious,you give birth and continue your education” Nurse Mitch said.
“That means I’ll have to repeat my class,no i don’t want that… Mum please i don’t want the baby” I said in tears.
“Ellen,i want the baby! Why would you think of abortion,did you not consider that tiny baby who’s happy to be growing in you,if i had aborted you.. would you be present here” Mum said.
“Mum! You were old enough to have me that was the reason you didn’t abort me,i don’t just want this baby” I said.
“I will transfer you to another school once you give birth… Thanks Nurse Mitch, I’ll bring her later for antenatal,get up let’s go” Mum said.
“Okay Mrs Blaise… Ellen it’s okay, you’re not the first to get pregnant at this age..next time you must be very careful and I’ll be expecting you for the natal” She said.
I nodded and cried, sniffing as i followed Mum out of the office.
I cleaned my tears when we got closer to the reception.
“Bye nurses” Mum said.
“Bye Mrs Blaise” They chorused.
Mum dropped some dollar bills on their glass desk and they were so happy.
“Thanks so much Mrs Blaise… thanks” They said.
I walked out of the hospital sadly and waited for Mum by the car.
Fresh tears poured out my eyes when i saw her approaching.
She must be very disappointed.
She unlocked the car and i quietly got into the back seat.
Mum got into the front and glanced at me as she adjusted her seatbelt.
She sighed and shook her head before turning on the ignition.
She started driving out of the hospital and i cried silently at the backseat.
We were both silent till we almost got home.
“Who’s responsible for the pregnancy?” Mum asked.
“B .. Bryan” I muttered.
“Really!” She exclaimed.
“Yes”
“Were you both in a relationship?” She asked.
“Yes but it’s over now” i said.
“Wow” She honked twice and i realised we’ve gotten home.
Mike opened the gate and she drove in.
She parked under the parking shade and we both stepped out of the car.
I felt dizzy and quickly rested on the car.
“Are you okay?” Mum asked.
“Just dizzy” I sighed.
“That’s the result of your tears…stop crying,you might lose the baby” She said worriedly.
Wow! I’m gonna lose the baby if i cry much.
Then what’s stopping me from crying.
“Haaaa” I bursted into tears and mum laughed.
“Because i said you might lose the baby if you cry much,and you started crying… com’on let’s go into the house” She said and held my hand.
I followed her glancing at my stomach at interval.
It’s still very flat.
We got into the living room and i sat on the couch.
Mum dropped her purse and sat beside me.
“You have to call Bryan now” She said making my heart jump.
“Call Bryan?”
He’ll be so pissed,besides he didn’t force me. I was the one that forced him,i added something to his drink.
“Mum i can’t call Bryan” I said.
“Why? Isn’t he the father?” She asked.
“He is but he did not wanted to do anything with him..I was the one who added sedative mix to his drink…” I said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yes Mum” I said in regret.
“Why would you do that! You shouldn’t have done that. Ellen that was huge” She said.
“I’m sorry Mum” I said.
“Don’t tell me you’re sorry,call Bryan now” She said.
“He will not accept it I..”
“I don’t care if he accepts the pregnancy or not,we are capable to take care of the baby ourselves but i just thought it will be unfair not to inform him” She said.
I nodded and picked my phone from my pocket.
I scrolled to the call logs and clicked on Bryan.
Tears gathered in my eyes as it rang.
I placed it on speaker to enable Mum hear whatever he has to say.
I just wish to have a miscarriage!
I don’t want this thing!
Hey Ellen” He said.
Bryan” I called and sniffed.
What’s wrong?
I bursted into tears.
Ellen what went wrong?” He asked worriedly.
I..I……
You are what? What happened Ellen?
I..I’m pregnant!” I blurted crying loudly expecting what he’s gonna say.
Y.. you are pregnant?” He sounded shocked
Yes..I’m three weeks pregnant for you” I said and looked at Mum.
She paced the living room.
W..wh..what..why ” He stammered and i felt the fear in his voice.
Mum took the phone from my hand and placed it on her ear.
Bryan,you don’t have to take responsibility for the pregnancy,i just thought it’ll be fair for us to inform you.. Ellen will take care of the baby herself okay.. Bye.
She disconnected the call and placed the phone on the table.
“I just don’t understand why you are crying,go eat something” She said.
“I’m not hungry” I said.
“But the baby is hungry.. look Ellen,you just have to accept that baby,do you know how happy it is to be growing in you. It’s just nine months and you resume school after that. I will transfer you to another school if you want,just learn to cope for this nine months,I’m here and will always be here for you okay?” She said and hugged me.
I cried on her shoulder trying to accept what she said.
I’m a little excited that I’m gonna have a beautiful baby but it just seems wrong. I’m too young for this,i shouldn’t have done it.
I’m glad mum is gonna stand by me..
I’m glad I’m gonna have a beautiful baby.
It’s time i stopped crying and go eat..my baby would be hungry.
“Thanks Mum..I love you” I said.
“I love you too hunny” She kissed my forehead.
“What about dad?” I asked.
“Don’t bother about your dad…I’m gonna break the news to him and he’s gonna understand”
I smiled and nodded.
“Why’s my stomach still flat?” I pouted.
“It’s still gonna pop out like a balloon and you’ll have to start walking like a jelly” She said and i laughed.
“Really?”
“Yes”
“I need to go eat,i don’t want my baby starving” i said and stood.
“I’m glad you finally accepted the baby…let’s go eat together,I’m also starving” She said.
“When am i gonna start antenatal?” I asked.
“We’ll go back to Nurse Mitch after you are back from school tomorrow”
“Okay Mum but how am i gonna break the news to my friends”
“You tell them tomorrow and you will stop going to school after two months.. tomorrow is Friday making your pregnancy complete a month” She said.
“I’m not sure i can tell them,what will they think of me” I said.
“They should think whatever but i know your set of friends is gonna support you” She said and i nodded.
“I hope so Mum”
“And…”
“What?” I asked.
“You need to stop acting like a baby cause you are about to have a baby” She said and i laughed..
Mara’s POV
I sat in my room after having lunch.
I was reading a novel but my mind wasn’t completely there.
I was thinking of my friends…I hope I’m not treading the wrong path.
I haven’t talked to them for two weeks now and it’s affecting me deeply.
I’ve missed them even though i act like i don’t care.
Seeing them look sad every blessed day just because of me is making me grieve.
I kept shutting them out anytime they get close to me and i now eat separately,go home separately and do everything separately.
It’s making me feel so lonely.
Is it there fault?
Are they responsible for my misfortune?
No! Yet I’m punishing them for it.
I’m angry at myself and then unleashed the anger on them.
I love Bryan so much and i don’t think i can bare not talking to him after today, and the rest also but i miss Bryan most.
I’m glad he seemed so worried about me for the past weeks.
He didn’t push me to meet Quilah,i met Quilah myself and how dare i blame him for it..he isn’t responsible for any of my bad deeds and he even asked me to be his girlfriend just to make me happy but i foolishly refused and was even malicious with him.
Ellen pushed me to meet Quilah but it wasn’t entirely her fault.
The greatest fault here is mine..
I was in love and was willing to do anything.
Ellen isn’t at fault.
Kelly and Laura,did they even did anything to me at all?
They were not even existing in my life when i did all this and i stupidly blamed them for it and refused to talk to them also.
I’m just gonna apologise to everyone…that’s it.
I need to apologise. I’ve missed us and thank goodness Mr Allen didn’t agree to change my seat.
I’m just gonna sit with them during lunch break and render my apology.
I hope they forgive me…they will.
I will soon be gone from this Earth and i should be at peace with everyone..I should.
What should i do with the remaining months of my life?
I can’t leave just like that.
I fondled my necklace as i thought of what to do and just then,an idea popped in my head.
I shrugged it off cause it’s just so crazy.
I need to think of another thing!..
Bryan’s POV
“Bryan how could you?” Mum asked.
“Mum I’m sorry,she drugged my drink” i said.
I felt so crazy after Ellen told me she was pregnant for me.
She caused it!
What am i gonna do?
“We don’t have to worry,her Mum said she’s gonna take care of it herself” i said.
“Are you okay?” Mum asked.
“Yes Mum,i don’t want the baby. She’s gonna take care of it herself” I said.
“Shut up!” Mum yelled..”Take care of what herself? Take it or not,you own that pregnancy and you both are gonna take care of it together”
“Mum she own the pregnancy herself,i didn’t force her to do anything” I said angrily.
If only i could punch the baby out of her stomach but i can’t! cause i think I’m beginning to feel some affection for the baby.
I love babies but never imagined i could have one this early.
“Bryan,i want that baby and you’re gonna accept the pregnancy. I don’t care if she forced you or not,that doesn’t change the fact that you are the father,that girl is gonna stop schooling for a while just because of you and i can’t believe you have the gut to say you don’t want the baby.. Ellen is only 16,you can imagine the pains she’ll go through during delivery. All you have to do now is support her just for nine months..” She said and i think my heart softened.
I frowned…”She shouldn’t have gotten pregnant”
“She can’t help it..it’s her body” Mum said.
“So I’m going to be a father? Mum I’m still very young” I said worriedly.
“You should be glad you aren’t the one carrying the pregnancy,who would know you are already a father. No one would know”
“Really?”
“Of course and aren’t you happy you’ll be having a little baby?” Mum asked.
I held myself from smiling…”No” I lied.
I’m so excited at the thought.
“You lie!” Mum laughed.
“I can’t believe I’m already loving the baby,mum you know how much i love babies” I said.
“Of course i do,you nearly made us adopted a baby”
I smiled.
“So have you accepted the baby?” She asked.
“Y..yes, I’ll make sure i take care of her till she gives birth” I said.
“That’s my boy” Mum hugged.
“I’m not a boy anymore cause I’m gonna be having a boy” I smiled.
“Hmm…you already think it’s gonna be a boy?”
“Of course…a cute boy” I grinned.
“Wow! I’m so glad you accepted the baby..now call Ellen” She’s said and i sigh.
“Do i have to? I can just talk to her in school tomorrow” I said.
“You think so?” She asked.
“Yeah”
“Alright.. I’ll go call your dad now” She said.
I squeezed my face…”Dad is gonna scold me”
“You deserve some scolding” She said and walked away.
I sighed and walked to my room.
I laid on the bed.
How am i gonna break this news to Kelly, Laura and Mara.
Well…I’m just gonna do it.
I was thinking of dating Laura but it’s all ruined now,i need to stay with Ellen not for anything but the baby.
How’s the baby gonna look like?
A boy or girl?
Is he gonna have the same eyes as mine and then same hair as Ellen’s.
I smiled at the thought.
But damn! I still have to wait for nine months!
It’s worth waiting for my baby.
Wow! I feel so excited.
I picked my phone and started texting Ellen.
Hey,how are you?” I texted and clicked on send.
‘sent’
I was about dropping my phone when it beeped.
She replied so soon.
Is this message for me?
I smiled Yes and how’s my baby?
Really!
Yes I’m gonna take responsibility for the baby and I’ll support you till the child is born.
OMG, Bryan are you serious?
Of course i am.
No! You might not be the one texting,I’m gonna call you now.
I smiled and waited for her call,it came in almost immediately.
Hey Ellen,I’m the one texting you and I’m serious about taking responsibility for the baby..I’m the father and I’m gonna support you till you give birth. We both own the baby” I said.
Wow..this is surprising but I’m so happy.. thanks so much Bryan, having you support me is gonna be great.
Yeah, we’ll discuss better at school tomorrow.
We are gonna tell our friends right?
Yes will…are you feeling anything funny in your stomach?” I asked and she laughed.
Not yet Bryan…but i think my stomach got rounder and Fuller.
Really? You’re gonna show me at school tomorrow” I said trying to hide my happiness.
Yes i will..I’m so happy,i need to go tell mum about this..bye Bryan.
Bye.
I smiled as she disconnected the call.
Bryan you’re gonna be a father….
I yawned and stretched on the bed.
It’s morning.
I wiped my face with my palm and sat up on the bed.
I felt like sleeping more but i need to get up and prepare for school.
I smiled still excited at the thought of having a baby..I’m glad it isn’t a dream.
I got up from the bed and walked to the wardrobe,i brought out my school wears and underwear then laid it on the bed.
I reached for my towel and walked into the bathroom in my pajamas.
***
I walked out of the bathroom after finishing my morning routine,i dried my body as i made my way to the bed.
I quickly wore my underwear then my trouser,shirt and socks.
I selected another pair of black shoes…I’m bored of the first one.
I wore it and picked an hair comb,i stood in front of the mirror as i combed it.
I applied some hair oil and sighed in approvement of how i looked.
I don’t need body lotion,i gat a natural glowing skin and applying body lotion displeases me.
I threw my phone in my backpack and looked at the wall clock.
‚7 o’clock…good!
I picked my backpack and hung it on my shoulders before walking out of my room.
*
“Good morning Mum” I greeted when i got to the dining.
She was setting up my breakfast.
“How was your night?” She asked.
“Fine mum” i dropped my backpack on a chair and sat on the other.
I started eating.
I noticed mum stood there watching me.
She smiled and i returned the smile then continued eating.
“Where’s Kim?” I asked.
“In the kitchen”
“Okay” i said and gulped down my coffee before wiping my mouth with a napkin.
I stood up and grabbed my backpack.
“Bye Mum”
“So soon….”
“Yes mum,you know how much i love getting to school early.
“Okay..hurry, Bye and say hi to Ellen for me”
“Okay Mum” i said and hurried to the door.
I pulled it open and stepped out.
Rollins was already standing beside my car.
“Good morning Rollins” i greeted.
“Morning Bryan”
I opened the car door and got into the backseat.
###
I sat in the class after saying hi to Kelly, Laura and then Mara who didn’t respond as usual.
I stared on and waited for Ellen to come in.
I held myself from staring at Laura even though she kept looking at me at interval.
Ellen walked in and my eyes went straight to her stomach.
Still flat!
She walked to her seat saying hi to people,my eyes was on her stomach all this while till she got to the front of my desk.
“Hi” She grinned.
“Hey” I said.
She sat down and dropped her backpack, tucked her hair behind her ears and turned to look at me.
“How are you?” I asked.
“I’m fine and you?”
“I’m so good, how’s the baby?” I whispered to her.
“It’s not a baby yet but it’s good..i fe.”
Mrs Hampton came in and i felt like rushing to the front of the class to strangle her.
Aaaargh!
LUNCH BREAK
Ellen, Laura, Kelly and i sat round our table at the cafeteria,we stared at our meals then at Mara who was still ordering her lunch at the counter.
She was done and walked towards us but i know she’s gonna sit in her new table..
She always walk past us and go sit on another table.
I was surprised and at the same time happy when she stopped at our table.
She placed her tray of lunch on it and sat down.
I stared at Everyone and they looked surprised as i am.
Ellen screamed happily and hugged Mara on her seat.
Aw! She shouldn’t hurt the baby.
“M.. Mara” Kelly called.
“Yeah… please you all should forgive me,i know i acted crazy for the past two weeks” She said.
“I forgive you and I’ve missed you so much,just forget what i said then..my feelings is not yet over for you” Kelly said.
“I forgive you Mara,so good to have you back” Laura smiled.
“My bestie is back” I sang happily and she laughed.
“We forgive you” We chorused happy to have her again in our midst.
“Thanks everyone” She said.
We took turns to hug her,even though Kelly’s hug took forever,she had to pull away.
We all smiled.
“So cheers to our restored friendship” She asked and picked up two fries as toast, everyone also picked up whatever they ordered and we all clicked it together.
We laughed…
“Okay guys,Ellen and i have a good news” I said, feeling this is the best time to say this.
“Really?”
“Yeah…”
“Go on..I’m eager” Kelly said.
“Huh.. Ellen is three weeks pregnant for me” I said.
“What!!” They screamed.
I expected that but i didn’t expect Mara to fall out of her chair.
“Mara” I called but she already bursted into tears.
Haaaa!

Mara’s POV
“Ellen is three weeks pregnant for me” Bryan said.
Shock bursted into my veins and i couldn’t hold myself anymore.
I fell off my chair.
“Mara” Bryan called and i bursted into tears.
“E.. Ellen you are pregnant for for Bryan?” I asked, ignoring the stares i was getting.
I was still on the floor.
“Yes Mara..I’m sorry it was a mistake” She said.
“Wow .. you mean there’s a baby growing in you right now?” Kelly asked.
Ellen nodded.
“Congratulations” he said and winked at Bryan.
“Wow..I’m surprised,you plan on keeping the baby?” Laura asked with pain in her voice..she has feelings for Bryan.
Good for her!
“Yes” She said.
“I’m sorry Mara,i should never have done it” Ellen pleaded.
I wiped my tears and sat back on the chair.
Bryan held my hands.
“I’m sorry” He said and i nodded with pain.
Ellen is gonna have a baby for Bryan..
“Mara,we all know what you went through but you just have to accept this” Laura said,like she would also accept it.
I know she’s burning inwardly.
“Mara,they wouldn’t have done it if they knew it’ll result in pregnancy..I’m here for you” Kelly patted my arm and i nodded.
“I’m so sorry Mara… please” Bryan pleaded.
“Mara I’m sorry, should i remove the baby?” Ellen asked.
“Hell no” I blurted.
I wiped my face and stared at Bryan.
There’s nothing between them..just pregnancy which I’m sure was a mistake.
“H..how did you get pregnant?” I asked.
So they had sex.
They both looked at each other..
“It was a mistake” Bryan said.
“It’s okay…it’s just pregnancy and i don’t get the reason I’m crying like a baby…I couldn’t have tied your d**k to the back of my palm” I said and they all laughed but i didn’t find it funny.
It looks they are both excited about having a baby.
I feel like screaming out loud in pain.
I’m in pains!
I’m heartbroken!
I will be gone soon!
“Does that means you’ll stop schooling?” Laura asked Ellen.
“Yeah after two months or when my bump starts showing” She said.
“If the baby is a girl,will you name her after me” I said struggling to hold my tears.
“After you?” Bryan asked,i nodded.
“What do you mean by after you,it’s mostly dead people a child is named after,you are not going to die so why are you saying this?” Ellen asked.
“Oh…are you still afraid of Quilah,she’s gone so nothing is gonna happen to you again” Bryan said.
I smiled sadly…”I know but just give her my name please”
“Of course we’ll do that…I’ve always love that name..my bestie and my baby girl is gonna be Tamara..so wonderful” Bryan smiled.
“Yeah,i love it but what if the baby is a boy?” Ellen asked.
“Then you name him according to your choice” i said.
“Okay..I’m so glad you accepted this news without so much fuss.. thanks for accepting us everyone” Bryan said.
Without fuss?
What it is me right now is more than a fuss.
I want to cry my eyes out.
I’m hurt.
“I’m gonna be the child’s godfather” Kelly smiled.
“Of course buddy” Bryan said.
“Mara will be the godmother” Ellen said.
I nodded sadly.
I secretly looked at Laura,she has her face in her palms looking at Bryan.
“The cafeteria light will be off soon and we haven’t touched our lunch” Kelly said.
“Haaa!” We exclaimed and started eating,stuffing it in our mouths and laughing in the process.
“Ellen take it easy…the baby” Bryan said and Ellen blushed,i felt so hurt and restrained myself from getting up.
I ate the rest of my meal in silence and sincerely it tasted bitter in my mouth.
I can’t burst into tears now when they all thought I’ve accepted the baby.
And Kelly should just stop looking at me already!
“Tamara…i will like you solve this equation” Mrs Ardsley said pissing me off already.
All she knows is about equations,she never teaches something new.
I got up from my seat and walked to the board.
I picked the board pen and quickly solved it.
I know all eyes will be on my back and there are some naughty students here.
I dropped the board pen and walked to my seat.
“She got it” Mrs Ardsley said.
“Bravo” the class chorused.
“Okay so Ann,you are next” She said to a girl.
“Mrs Ardsley you’ve not taught us this” Ann said.
“I told you to always study ahead”
“I didn’t so i don’t know it” Ann said and sat down.
“Who’s gonna solve this?” She asked and pointed to the board.
No one raised up their hands except Bryan and Kelly who did together.
“Go buddy” Bryan said and dropped his hand.
“No,you go” Kelly said.
“Who’s solving it between you two?” Mrs Ardsley asked.
“He will” They said together.
I smiled.
“Kelly Yates come solve it” Mrs Ardsley said.
Kelly sighed and stood,then walked to the front of the class.
He solved the equation correctly with so much speed that surprised everyone.
“Wow!” Mrs Ardsley exclaimed.
He dropped the board pen and walked back to his seat.
“Bravo! Bravo!” The class chorused.
He smiled and exchanged an hi five with Bryan before sitting down.
I looked at him and noticed he wasn’t so bad.
He’s handsome and I’m always intrigued by his dimple.
The feeling is not just there for him and i think he really loves me.
Should i use him for my plan?
Hell no!
I planned on using Bryan..
Students filed out to solve more equations but none was as fast as Kelly.
The only person i know to be faster than Kelly is Bryan.
Damn! Bryan is just so good,he’s handsome with great brain.
Who would wish for him to be hers.
I placed my head on the desk tiredly staring at my feet.
I should commend myself for being so brave.
I know I’m gonna die soon, yet i kept smiling and playing..I should be wallowed in sadness.
I shivered when i felt a palm on my back.
I already know it’s Bryan cause he’s the only one that gives me such feeling.
“Thinking about what?” He whispered to me.
I don’t want to raise my head up yet.
“Nothing” I said.
“You still sad about the pregnancy?” He asked.
I shook my head and felt tears building in my eyes.
Thank goodness I’ve not raised up my head.
“Don’t worry about that…I don’t love Ellen,I’m only taking responsibility for her pregnancy” He said.
He do not love Ellen but loves Laura..why can’t he just love me instead after all i did for him.
That made my tears drop and i sniffed so quietly not wanting anyone to know I’m crying.
“You okay?” Bryan asked and i nodded.
“Bryan come solve this part” I heard Mrs Ardsley said.
“Right back” He said to me before walking to the board.
I love watching Bryan solve cause everything goes just like magic but i can’t raise up my head.
My face is filled with tears already.
“Tammy are you okay?” I heard.
What the hell does Tammy means?i love the name though.
“I’m fine” I muttered.
I smiled when i heard ” Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!”
I knew Bryan is already coming back to his seat.
I wiped my tears with my palm then with my school shirt.
School’s over…time to leave for home.
There were noise and chatters as the students walk out of the classroom.
I packed my books in my backpack and stood up.
I hung it over my shoulders and waited for the rest to do the same.
We’ll be going to the parking lot together after so many days.
“Let’s go guys” Bryan said and took my hand.
I smiled and held him tighter.
We walked in the front and the rest at the back.
“I’ve miss walking with you to the parking lot” He said.
“Me too” I said.
“Is there a reason you did that?” He asked.
“Yeah.. you’ll know soon” I said.
We already got to the parking lot, everyone said goodbye and walked to their respective cars.
“Hi Max”
“Mara how are you?” He asked.
“I’m fine” I said and hopped into the car.
I’m not fine!
I closed the car door and freed myself from my backpack.
Max got behind the wheels and started driving.
Ellen is pregnant, that makes Bryan hers.
Who would abandon his baby mother, obviously they are both excited to have a baby.
I just can’t believe this!
If Ellen hadn’t gotten pregnant,no one would have known they had sex.
How did it happen?
They both know it’s a freaking contract and they went ahead to have sex saying it’s a mistake.
I wish I’m dreaming…
I wish I’m still the fatty Mara.
All this is just too much for me,I’m fed up.
The world is being unfair to me..why?
A tears slipped from my eyes and i didn’t bother cleaning it off,i let more flow and kept sniffing.
Life has nothing to offer me anymore,why can’t i just kill myself!
Living with the knowledge that I’m gonna die soon is already killing me slowly.
Liam and mum does not know about this, they’re thinking I’m free after Quilah is gone.
I hope Doc Mart respects my decision and not call Mum.
I didn’t notice Max already drove into the compound until the car stopped.
I glanced up and sighed.
I carried my backpack on one shoulder and stepped out of the car.
I walked towards the door, pulled it open and stepped into the house.
Liam was coming from the kitchen with a glass cup of juice while mum sat separating some files.
“Hi Mum, Liam” I said coldly.
“What happened to you?” Liam asked..
“Mara what’s wrong?” Mum asked worriedly.
I bursted into tears…
They both rushed to me.
“What happened?”
“Ellen is three weeks pregnant for Bryan” I said in tears.
“What!!” They both exclaimed in shock.
“Damn!” Liam swore.
“Ohh…is that the reason you’re crying? Com’on Mara” Mum said.
“I knew something was up with those two,anyways you just don’t cry…they are not worth your tears” Liam said and patted my back.
“Did they plan on keeping it?” Mum asked.
” Yes Mum” I said.
“Congratulations to them” Mum said and wiped my tears.
“I’m sure the pregnancy was a mistake, Bryan won’t dare impregnate Ellen purposely…forget it and move on. Mara move on! I’ve told you this severally,Kelly is th..”
“Just let me be if you are gonna be talking about Kelly” I said.
“Aw! Okay,clean your tears,go freshen up and guess what?” He asked.
“What?” I mumbled.
“Reiya is coming next month” He smiled happily.
“OMG really?” I smiled..I so much love Reiya.
“Yes, yes and she’s gonna be staying with us for the whole month” He said and i can’t help but jump.
“Wow…I can’t wait for her to be here,i need to see her in person” I said.
“Mum also,so go freshen up, I’m preparing pasta and chicken” He said.
I rolled my eyes and adjusted my backpack.
“Trust me,you are gonna enjoy it,i used different procedure” He said.
“I’m gonna pour it on your head if it tastes sour in my mouth” I said and he chuckled.
“Go freshen up” He dragged my hair, dropped mum’s juice on the table then ran back to the kitchen.
I walked upstairs to my room, opened the door and got in.
I dropped my backpack and pulled off my shoes.
I plan on freshening up,eat,then plan what next to do,i can’t keep crying round the house like a bush baby.
I slipped my school wears off my body and ran naked to the bathroom.
***
Damn! The water was so refreshing.
My brain feels settled and my body feels so smooth.
I wiped the droplets of water from my skin as i walked back to my room.
I opened the wardrobe and let out a ‘Wow’
Mum already changed my wardrobe for me!
“Mum thank you” I screamed.
The new clothes and undies i ordered are all neatly set in my wardrobe.
It looked beautiful and different but i think i miss my own clothings.
Mum has probably thrown them away or dash it out.
So sad i don’t have a female sibling.
I wore a black cardigan with tiny pearl buttons with a pair of skinny purple jeans.
I stood in front of the mirror and smiled on how good the clothes looked on my.
I combed my hair and decided not to pack it.
I let it down my shoulders and admired myself.
I’m a beauty to behold.
I perceived the aroma of pasta and felt my stomach rumbled.
I just need to wear my slippers and…
“Wow” i screamed on seeing my shoe rack.
Mum changed it too!
I marveled at the sight of beautiful shoes and slippers.
I love you mummy.
I grabbed a black one with two purple flowers on top.
I dashed out of the room.
I got to the living room,i didn’t see mum.
I ran to the dining room and met her there.
I pulled her into a hug.
“Mum I love you… thanks so much” I pecked her forehead twice.
She smiled “You’re welcome darling,the cloth looks so nice on you”
“Thanks mum..i love you i love you i love you i love you i love you” I said happily.
“I love you too darling”
“Can we eat” Liam groaned behind me and i turned and sent him a glare but grinned at the plates of pasta and chicken on the table.
I sang as i wash the dishes after we were done eating.
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.
“Mara can you stop singing,you voice sounds croaked and terrible” Liam said from the living room.
I laughed and continued singing..this time louder.
Your smiles alone made my heart dissolve.
“Wow your voice is the most beautiful I’ve ever heard,it’s even better than fallen angels’ but can you please stop singing” He pleaded and i chuckled.
“Oooookay” I shouted.
I rinsed the last dish and placed it in the drain board.
I wiped my hands dry on a napkin and walked out of the kitchen.
“I’ll be in my room Liam” I said.
“Okay sis”.
I climbed the stairs and smiled as my necklace dangled from one side to another.
I held it as i opened the door to my room.
‘dear necklace, please help me with a good plan’ I kissed it and sat on the bed.
I stared into space and began thinking.
Three ideas popped into my head but i don’t like them.
I finally got to my conclusion..I chose one out of the ideas but who am i gonna use?
Bryan?
No! Ellen is about to have a child for Bryan.
Who’s the next available guy?
Kelly?
Yes! Kelly.
Laura’s POV
I cried hard on my bed throwing things across the room angrily.
Why! Why! Why!
Why did pregnancy suddenly popped up out of nowhere when I’m starting to develop feelings for Bryan.
To hell with Ellen and the pregnancy!
I’m gonna get Bryan,i don’t freaking care!
He’s the first guy i ever have genuine feelings for.
I love him so much.
Didn’t he love me?
Why did he accept that pregnancy and he was even so happy about it.
Who knows if the pregnancy is fake!
Ellen is so manipulative!
I hate her! I freaking hate her.
Oh..my..Bryan has been taken from me
He said he’s gonna take care of Ellen for nine months and we would have almost graduate by then.
I’m so hurt right now… this is so heartbreaking.
Why did i develop feelings for him at the first place.
“Laura open the door” I heard mum said.
“Mum i want to be alone for now” I said.
“What happened?”
“Nothing..just let me be” I said.
“Are you okay?”
“Yes mum.. leave” I said.
My phone rang beside me and i refused to look at it not to talk of picking it up.
I cried on…
My phone rang again but i ignored it.
I cried on…
It rang the the third time..
Who the hell is calling me at this moment.
I shifted a little to look at the screen.
My eyes nearly popped out…”Bryan!”
I cleaned my face and cleared my throat then swiped to the receiver.
Laura” he called and that voice sent shivers down my spine.
B.. Bryan.
How are you? I’ve been calling you.
Hh..I’m fine,sorry i was in the bathroom.
Okay, so how you doing?
Very fine Bryan” I smiled.
I was bored and decided on calling you.
Really?
Yeah, let’s chat on WhatsApp..
Okay Bryan.
I disconnected the call and jumped happily.
Does this means he likes me too?
Yes he does
Mara’s POV
I’ve called Kelly and he’s on his way.
I already pulled off my cardigan remaining just my singlet and skirt.
I paced the room and await Kelly’s arrival.
I told him to come straight to my room once he arrive here.
*
I sat on the bed, tired of pacing.
Kelly should just arrive fast before i change my mind.
I almost jumped up when i heard a knock on the door.
I pushed the door open and he walked in with a smile.
I hope he’s gonna continue smiling once i told him…
“Hi Kelly” I said and closed the door behind us.
“Tammy how’re you?” He asked.
“I’m not fine” I said.
“What’s wrong?” He asked.
“Kelly,i have some months to live” i said.
“What!” He shouted and i had to hold his mouth.
“How? I thought Quilah is gone?” He asked.
“Yes, but a god appeared to me again” I said.
“Jeez-us” he screamed about running out of the room.
I quickly held him back.
“Com’on Kelly..he’s not here! He only appeared to me once” I said.
“Haaa… Tammy I’m afraid,what’s really going on?” He asked.
“He appeared to me and said;the fact that Quilah is gone doesn’t mean i won’t die anymore,he said i still have a year to live that i should do something useful before i leave”.
“Damn! Really?” Kelly asked.
“Yes,do you remember the day i lied to Max and came home late?” I asked.
“Yeah” He said sadly.
“I went to Doc Mart to retake the the test and it was the same thing,he also confirmed i have less than a year to live” I said and started crying.
“So you’ll be gone again! I thought you won’t leave us anymore.. Tammy” He said in tears and hugged me to his chest.
I cried on his shoulder…”That was the reason i was mean to you guys,I was so pissed knowing i have a year to live”
“Isn’t there anything we can do about it?” He asked, cleaning my tears with his thumb.
I shook my head…”No,all i just have to do is make sure i don’t leave without nothing”
“Have you planned on anything?” He asked.
“Yes and that was the reason i called you… Kelly please would you do it for me?” I asked.
“You should know i will do anything for you” He said.
“Is that a promise?”
“Yes,even though I’ve not believed you will leave,you are leaving to nowhere Tammy” He said.
“I wish so…So can i say it?” I asked.
“Go on”
“Kelly please,get me pregnant” I said and he suddenly pulled away from me in shock.
“What did i hear you say?” He asked.
“I want you to have sex with me,i want to get pregnant.. please Kelly” I pleaded in tears.
“No! I can’t do that.. Tammy what are you thinking? You’ve made a bad choice,i can’t do that” He said.
“No! It’s not a bad choice,i planned it thoroughly,i would have told Bryan to do it for me if Ellen was not pregnant for him.. please i have less than a year to live,i need to get pregnant ASAP and give birth before i die. Please Kelly,just do this for me” I said.
“Tammy what are you saying? You mean i should get you pregnant so you can give birth before you die? What if we have sex and it does not result to pregnancy? Not that I’m even willing to do it” He said.
“I’m gonna get pregnant,I’m in my ovulation period and this is the perfect time for it.. please i beg if you Kelly,do this for me” I pleaded.
“It will be like just taking advantage of you…”
“Take advantage of me, please Kelly. I want to have a baby before i die, Mum and Liam will be so heartbroken if i die,they will miss me so much and I’m afraid Liam might never survive from it but if i drop a baby,they will both look on to the baby,the baby will represent me in their lives. I can’t leave just like that,Kelly please..I’m pleading”
He wore a confused look and seem to thinking about it.
I hope he agrees.
My ovulation period ends tomorrow.
Kelly please!
“I’m sorry,i can’t” He said and my heart broke completely.
I watched as he walked out of my room.
I cried loudly in my palms…
*
I was seated on the bed still crying when the door suddenly opened.
I quickly cleaned my tears thinking it’s Liam,i raised my head and saw Kelly walked back into my room.
He locked the door behind him and walked to me slowly.
“Tammy… I’ll do it” He said and i jumped from the bed.
I hugged him tightly and smiled amidst tears.
“Thanks Kelly, thanks so much” I said and pulled him to the bed with him.
He kissed me and started taking off my clothes one after the other;
I wondered if i should tell him it’s my first time.
“I’m gonna be gentle…i know it’s your first time” he said as if reading my mind.
I smiled and drew him closer to my body,kissing his neck and ears to make him arouse.
He kissed me fully on the lips and;
We did it!
