|The Loverboys by Oyinprince(m): 11:26pm On May 19|
� The Loverboys�
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
‘Come on, Jeanne; you’re too slow. Does it really have to take you ages to get me a cup of coffee?’
Susan groused as I hurried with a cup of coffee to her.
'‘And where are the headphones I asked for?’ Ivy asked, opening her palms.
‘Sorry, Ivy; but I couldn’t find them in the room’ I replied dazily, , touching my forehead.
‘What? Have you gone blind? What do you mean you couldn’t find it?’ she groused.
‘Come on girls. Maybe the fact that she is going to the Alpha High School has suddenly made her blind’, their mom said and they laughed lightly.
‘I wonder why she insisted on going there. Does she think she will be able to win any of the lover boys?’ Ivy asked and they laughed again.
I bent my head and sniffed.
No, I couldn’t afford shedding a tear; not on a special day like this.
‘Enough of the jokes; I’ve warned you to stop doing this’, I heard his voice and I smiled to see the only man I could call family.
Although, he wasn’t my biological family, he had insisted I call him dad. Whenever he’s around, his wife and daughters never get to bully me.
He climbed down the stairs into the sitting room and touched my hair.
‘Are you ready?’ he asked and I nodded with a smile and took my bag from the table.
I looked at his daughters and their faces were already swollen with rage.
I bent my head and walked out of the room with dad – Mr. Raymond.
Mr. Raymond is actually my adopted father. He told me he had found me lying close to the river banks four years ago and he had taken me to the hospital.
But when I regained consciousness, I lost my memories and couldn’t recall a single thing from my past. So, I had no idea where I came from.
Mr. Raymond had even put me up on TV but no one came for me. So, he took me in as his daughter but his wife and kids never accepted me for once. They all saw me as a nuisance and didn’t want to associate with me.
His kids actually study abroad, but just come over for the long vacation.
I’m just a sad, lonely girl who wonders where her family might be and why they never came for her.
Well, thank God I fell into the hands of someone as kind as Mr. Raymond.
Right now, I’m going to Alpha High School and you wouldn’t believe the millions he spent just to get me admitted.
It’s actually one of the best schools in the country, but unfortunately, Mr. Raymond is a very busy person and he travels out of the country a lot. As a matter of fact, he will be leaving the country again by tomorrow, and that’s quite sad for me because, each time he isn’t around, his wife and kids make my life a living hell.
I got into the car with dad and sat at the back seat. Then, I let out a sweet wide smile.
For once, I had the opportunity to be happy about going to the Alpha High School.
It’s a school for only the rich;like, very rich and I only got lucky because Mr. Raymond is one of the rich.
I connected my headphones as my dad started the car.
Yeah, that’s me; I’m actually a music freak. I love singing with passion.
I played one of my favorite songs as I closed my eyes, enjoying the song. It was “kiss me again” by The Loverboys.
Okay, who are the love boys?
The Love Boys is the most popular band in the US, originally made up of five young, crazily handsome and sparingly wealthy boys – Theo, Alex, Carl, Daniel and Malcolm.
Wondering why I said “originally”?
Well, that’s because Theo is no longer with them. He unexplainably left the band four years ago, and since then, nobody has ever heard from him again.
He was actually the leader of the band, but since he left, Alex took over as the leader.
According to what, I heard, Alex and Theo were childhood friends and were both lovers of music and as a result, their parents teamed up and signed up with the Alpha Records and opened a band – The Love Boys.
Then Carl, Daniel and Malcolm who were also close friends of theirs back then, also joined the band.
So, the Love Boys started at a very young age and they were doing pretty well.
But, uncannily, things changed about them and it all started four years ago. Nobody knows exactly what happened, but we’re all sure something big must have transpired between them, especially Theo and Alex.
Theo uncannily left the band and since he left, Alex also changed. Alex was a happy flirty guy, but since Theo left, that happy personality of his died off, and he became a sad quiet introvert.
I even heard he was forced by his parents to take over as the band leader.
Another strange thing that happened since Theo left is that, all the girlfriends Alex ever had all ended up dead.
Yes, since Theo left, he’s had about two girlfriends and they all ended up dead and as a result, he’s been abstaining from the company of girls. He’s been trying as much as possible to avoid any contact with girls and I actually heard even in the Love Boy’s mansion, there are no female workers there; even their cook is a boy.
I really wonder what could have happened between him and Theo, and what could also be the cause of the death of the ladies he loved. Or, could it be just a coincidence? Or could there really be something or someone behind it? And why did it start happening after Theo left?
Well, it’s not like what happened stopped Alex from being the ladies’ crush. The Love Boys were all charming, but Alex was the cutest, trust me, I play his video every day.
But when Theo was around, I heard it was difficult making a choice between him and Alex because they were both charming and breathtaking.
Trust me, if I were to choose between Theo and Alex, I wouldn’t know why to choose.
Too bad Theo left, but it’s a good thing Alex was still around to fill up the space. But, I’m still wondering why Theo left and where he is.
Will he ever come back?
‘We’re here’, my dad’s voice broke into my thoughts and I opened my eyes and discovered that we had already gotten to the Alpha High School.
Was this a school or a hotel?
I came out of the car and stood like a statue looking around with amusement.
This building was magnificent. it looks prettier than it seems on TV and magazines. I can’t believe I’m actually here.
AHS - Alpha High School is owned by Alpha Records, the company where the Love Boys worked under.
People from outside the country travel down here just to attend AHS because they get to see their superstars almost every day.
I heard they Love Boys move around very freely over here and are only accompanied by the guards on rare occasions. But, I also heard that Alex is rarely seen.
He always isolates himself from everyone, and on most occasions, he doesn’t attend classes. He had really turned out to be an introvert.
But whenever he comes around, they entire place is always set on ovation, and I also heard some female students even end up collapsing.
I hope I also get to meet face to face with him one day.
Dad held my hand as we headed for the Principal’[s office and I couldn’t stop admiring the entire place. Securities were everywhere and pretty boys and girls could be seen walking in pairs and taking pictures.
Dad and I got to the principal’s office but at that time, he was kind of settling an issue between two parents and their kids. So, we were asked to wait outside.
We sat on the three-seater chair outside the office together with one other man and I just couldn’t wait to see the principal so that he'd assign me to my class.
While we were seated there, three pretty ladies walked by and one of them had Alex’s name written on her hand.
Then, two other boys walked by and they were talking about Kimberly.
My role model!
She was my teacher at the Love girls – a female music band created from the Love Boys.
It was made up of eight girls and Kimberly Percival was they leader.
She’s actually my best song-writer and I love her so much.
I hope I also get to meet her here as well.
The meeting in the office was taking long and I was kind of getting impatient already.
I stood up and walked to the window in the passage, taking a look outside. I was so beautiful.
I looked back at dad and he was busy with his laptop.
well, like I said, he’s a very busy person.
Then, I decided to take a look around. Yes, just around the passage. I started walking and noticed the passages were free of students. They were probably in class.
I came to a staircase and sat by it bringing out a book from my bag, it was my song book.
I opened it and started writing new lyrics that came to my mind while I sat. I really love singing a lot, and I wish I would have an opportunity to explore it.
I was still writing in my song book when I heard a soft sound that caught my attention.
It seemed someone was playing they keyboard.
I listened carefully and noticed it was coming from upstairs.
Who could it be?
It was so enchanting.
I stood up and slowly, I started climbing the stairs.
As I drew nearer, the sound got clearer and it kept bemusing me.
But just as I finished climbing the stairs, I saw a signboard that read:
But there was someone in. Why does it have to be restricted?
I stood still and the sound of the keyboard kept enchanting me.
Only an expert can play this good.
It was a slow emotional song and I wondered who it could it be.
There was a big room ahead and the door was slightly open and it was obvious the sound was coming from there.
I looked around and couldn't find anyone.
Then, creepily, I walked pass the signboard and entered the room.
Like I said earlier, it was big and at the entrance were just scattered books, shelves ,canters, cartoons and papers. It looked more like a storage room.
I walked further and finally, I found the expert. Hah!
I smiled and looked at him and...wait!
Oh, my God!
I quickly ran and hid behind a canter.
Oh, my God!
Am I dreaming or what? am I really looking at Alex with my bare eyes?
The leader of the Loverboys?
It's a good thing he was backing me, else, I'd have been caught.
No wonder it was a restricted area.
He wanted to be alone.
He always wants to be alone.
Then that means I shouldn't be here. If I get caught, I'm definitely going to get punished.
But at that moment, I couldn't help but admire him.
Despite the fact he was backing me, I could still manage to have a side view of his face.
He was so charming and cute.
He had a tattoo on his neck and a diamond ring on his ear.
Now I understand why the sound was so emotional.
All the songs he led have always been emotional.
All the ladies have been dying for him. But too bad they only get to see him from a distance or on TV since he doesn't like associating with girls anymore.
I heard it's kind of made him cold hearted to some extent.
I wonder what really happened to them.
Suddenly, he stopped playing and I wondered why.
I was kind of enjoying it.
"Do you realise this is a restricted area?" He asked and I swear, my heart stopped beating.
Does he know I'm here?
I gasped and turned around in fear, leaning my back on the canter.
How did this happen?

(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
Jeanne's Pov continues:
I heard him touch the keys again and just then, his phone started ringing.
I'll be there" he said on the phone.
His voice was so soft as he spoke and it made me drool more on him.
But at this moment, I was scared.
What is he going to do to me?
I heard him stand and started walking to the door which was towards my direction.
Surprisingly, he walked pass me and didn't even turn to take a look at me.
Is he really such an introvert?
I watched in surprise as he walked to the door, but just when he was about going out, something like car keys fell from his hands and I exhaled.
He's definitely going to turn around to pick it up.
My heartheart skipped as he bent and turned to pick it up and boom!
That was it.
We made the eye contact
Is this for real?
Jesus; he was so heavenly cute; cuter than he looked on TV and magazines.
Oh, my God! I could hardly breathe.
He had this long baby lashes and a dark curly hair that flopped across his forehead.
Even though I only had to look at him for a short time, I could swear he was the most handsome guy I'd ever seen.
He stared at me briefly and quickly took his eyes away like he had seen no one important.
And finally, he left the room.
I placed my hand on my chest and took in a deep breath.
Gosh; that was so close.
I can't believe he didn't even react to my presence there.
But it's still a miracle to know I was in the same room with loverboy Alex.
I left the room and got outside and looked left and right to see if I could still get a glimpse of him.
But unfortunately, he was gone.
I stood at the passage for a while, still recalling the whole thing.
I smiled when I remembered his soft voice that had spoken to me:
'Do you realise this is a restricted area?'
I wish I could hear him speak again.
I finally took the stairs and returned to the office and there I met my dad in already, talking with the principal.
"Jeanne, where have you been? I've been looking for you" he said as I took a seat beside me.
"Sorry dad. I was just taking a look around" I replied and turned to the principal who was a chubby handsome man.
"Good morning sir" I greeted and checked the header on his desk for a name.
It was Mr Mark Clarkson.
"Good morning, dear. Your dad here has already told me everything about you.
Just fill this form over here and you'll be assigned to your new class" he said and slided the form to me on the table and I collected it and filled in my details.
"I'm sure you have the school map on your school already. But I'll be assigning someone to show you around later in the day.
Welcome to Alpha High School" he concluded with a warm smile and brought out his hand for a handshake and I smiled and collected it.
"Thank you sir" I replied and stood up with dad.
"Thank you very much Mr Clarkson. I really appreciate the effort" dad told him and exchanged a handshake with him and we left the office afterwards.
"Make sure you stay out of trouble, Jeanne. And be attentive in class, okay?"he told me as we held hands and walked out of the passage.
Then when we got to the balcony, I stopped and embraced him.
"Thank you dad. Thank you so much for this" I said happily and he patted my back.
"Just make me proud okay?" He said softly and I nodded and unlocked from the hug.
"Now hurry to class so you don't be late for lectures" he said and I smiled and waved at him and left.
I opened the school map on my phone and followed the direction to my new classroom.
It was very big and pretty and filled with young good looking boys and girls.
Well, all the students in Alpha High were undoubtedly rich because Alpha High doesn't give out scholarships.
So, there were no rooms for commoners.
Well, it's a good thing I had someone like Mr Raymond to back me up.
I nervously walked into the classroom as all the students stared at me.
I kept my gaze low and found anan empty seat on the third row.
wow! I can't believe I was in Alpha High.
I wonder what grade the loverboys were in. I wish we could have the same grade.
After a short while, a teacher came in and all the students settled down.
"Good morning, Mrs Smith" few of the students greeted as she walked up to the front of the class and kept her books on the table.
"Good morning, students. How was the weekend?" She replied and asked.
Some of the students chorused a reply while some chuckled.
"Okay, okay. However it was" Mrs Smith replied.
"By the way, we're having a new student in our midst today.
Miss Jeanne, could you step out for a brief introduction, please?" She said, staring at me and I took in a deep breath and stood up.
I sauntered to the front of the class and turned, facing the students and now I had the opportunity to take a proper look at them.
They all looked rich and charming and flirty too.
"Your name, miss" Mrs Smith said and I shook my head.
"Uhn...I'm Jeanne Raymond" I replied a little shyly.
"Okay. Jeanne. Welcome to Alpha High. You can have your seat" she said to me and I smiled and returned to my seat.
She commenced teaching and after that, we had two more subjects and it was break time.
Students started walking out in pairs and I also stood up and thought of going to the canteen.
Hm. It seems all the students here are just bumptious as none of them even cared to pay any attention to me.
I took my books from the table and was about going out of the class when a pretty lady came in and walked up to me.
"Hi. You must be Jeanne, right?" She asked and I nodded, Wondering who she was.
She was chewing a gum and looked classic.
"Okay. I'm Carissa. And I've been assigned by Mr Mark to show you around the school" she said and I flinched.
Such a classic girl showing me around the school?
"Uhm...you don't have to worry about that miss." I tried speaking.
"I can just make use of the..."
"Oh, please; don't in any way feel like I'm being stressed out or something. It's part of my course and will only add to my G.P when I'm done. So, it's for my own good" she cut in and I sighed and nodded.
"Come with me" she said lowly and started walking out of the class and I followed her behind.
She looked and sounded strict, but normally, she was a jovial person.
She took me to the vital places in the school - the sports hall, the lab, the library, the bookstore and other interesting places.
"This is the sports hall." She told me when we entered the enormous sports hall.
It was very big and had so many sporting materials.
"Our sport days are Wednesdays" she added and I just nodded and looked around.
"Uhm...do the loverboys also come down for sports on Wednesdays?" I asked and she looked at me and smiled.
"Everybody always wants them to. But unfortunately, they only come down once in a blue pretty moon" she replied and I smiled and nodded.
"You're also crushing on them, right?" She asked as we left the sports hall.
I blushed in a smile.
"Every body loves the loverboys" I replied.
"Oh; that's true.
Why don't we grab lunch together?" She asked and I hesitated for a while.
"Uh...okay. sure" I replied and she smiled and led me to the canteen.
The canteen was very big and pretty and was filled up with students.
But it wasn't too crowded or noisy.
Carissa and I found a suitable seat and she left to order our meal and returned with a big tray.
"What grade are the loverboys?" I asked as I took my own plate of banana split. .
"Oh; they're actually in your grade" she replied and my eyes beamed.
"Yes they don't always attend classes" she cut in, knowing what I wanted to say.
"Why?" I asked despondently.
"Well, that's because they don't like mixing up with others, at least not all the time.
But loverboys like Carl, Daniel and Malcolm do attend classes a little often. But someone like Alex...gosh! It's only once in a pink moon. And that pink moon's actually when the class is being handled by Mr Leonard".
I chuckled and looked at her.
"Mr Leonard?" I asked .
"Yes. He's the further maths teacher. He's the only one who can actually make Alex attend classes. That's because he's very strict and hard and doesn't tolerate any partial treatment. He believes every student must be treated equally. And as a result, he's Alex's worst enemy" she replied and I scoffed.
I really can't wait for the maths class.
According to the time table, we'd be having further maths by tomorrow.
Hopefully, Alex will be there.
"It's amazing, right? Attending the same school with the loverboys" she asked and I smiled and nodded.
"Uhm...Carissa" I called.
"Can I ask you a question?"
"Sure. What is it?"
I cleared my throat a little.
"Do you have any idea what happened between Alex and Theo?" I asked.
What do you think might have happened between Alex and Theo? Find out by reading episode 3 here - https://youngicee.com/2020/05/the-loverboys-episode-2.html

� The Loverboys�
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
She paused and took in some juice.
"Oh, that?" She asked and continued eating, but I wasn't.
I was just staring at her, hopefully waiting for an answer.
"Well, I have no idea. Nobody does - maybe except the loverboys" she replied and I sighed disappointed
"But it all started four years ago" she added.
"Theo was the leader of the band back then and him and Alex were best of friends. They seemed inseparable.
"Normally, Theo was a nice quiet guy, while Alex was the flirty type. Carl, I
Daniel and Malcolm were just like Alex - always having fun.
"But unexplainbly, Theo disappeared; like he just disappeared and nobody has heard from him since then.
"So, Alex took over as the band leader, but things were never the same again..."
"Like the deaths of his girlfriend?" I interpolated and she shrugged.
"well, yeah. The death of his girlfriends. It's also kind of complicated.
Since Theo left, Alex has fallen in love with two girls and they both ended up dead".
"So what do you think?" I asked.
"Do you think it's just a coincidence?"
"Well, I don't know about that. Like I said, it's complicated. Maybe its a coincidence, maybe it's not. But one things for sure; something really big definitely happened between Theo and Alex - something really big".
A brief silence stepped in for a while.
"I heard they're no female workers in the loverboys mansion" I broke the silence.
"Oh, yes. Alex's idea" she replied. "He's been trying to avoid contact with girls in every way.
"You know his dad is late and his mum and little sis actually live in the mansion because of the kid.
She's a very very busy woman and travels out of the country a lot.
So, as a result, she stays in the mansion so whenever she was away, the loverboys could help in looking after Molly.
But the loverboys are usually very busy and many times, Molly has gone missing.
"Huh? Why doesn't she just get a nanny or something?" I asked, muddled.
"Hello? Have you forgotten I said no female workers in the mansion?
Alex's mum has hiredhired about eight nannies - if I'm not mistaken - but they all lost their jobs within 24 hours".
"You mean Alex sends them away?" I asked.
"Nope. Not Alex, but Molly. She always cooks up one complain or the other or ill treat and scare the nannies away and in the end, they end up running away.
But, it's rumoured Alex's the one behind it. I heard he's actually the one making her send the nanny away and that's because he doesn't want any girl around him. Even their cook is a boy."
"But why's he suddenly abstaining from girls?" I asked.
"Well, maybe he's scared to fall love again. I mean, after what happened to the other two girls he loved. Anyway, I don't know; I have no idea" .
I nodded and looked down at my food.
"So, who's your favourite among the loverboys?" I asked and she blushed.

� The Loverboys
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
"So, who's your favourite among the loverboys?" I asked and she blushed.
"Huh? Of course it's Alex. Who else could it be?" She replied happily.
"But...If you were to chose between Theo and Alex, whom would you chose?" I asked and she looked stuck a bit.
"Well...I don't know. Theo's also very lovely and comparable to Alex. But, I think id still chose Alex" she replied and I smiled.
"What about the lovergirls? Are they also in my grade?" I asked and Carissa crinkled up her face.
"Who? Those spoilt arrogant brats?" She asked and I pulled a surprised face.
"Huh? Why are you saying that about them? I love them" I said defensively and she scoffed.
"Trust me, darling. It's because you haven't gotten to meet them.
They're vipers, especially their leader - Kimberly. She's a she wolf. You really need to be careful with them" .
I scoffed and shook my head. Is she serious or something?
Kimberly is my role model.
How can she tell me to be careful around her?
Carissa and I went on talking for sometime and I kind of enjoyed her company. She was a fun person.
After lunch, she followed me to class. But since we were in different grades, we couldn't stay together and she left afterwards.
To be sincere, I didn't entirely enjoy my first day in Alpha High because I didn't get to meet any of my superstars - aside Alex who had just acted blinded towards me.
After some hours, the school was over and everybody headed home.
When I got home, luckily, dad was still around. And so, his wife and kids didn't have an opportunity to bully me.
Too bad he'll be leaving tomorrow.
I had dinner with him and explained briefly about my first day in alpha high. Although I didn't tell him about the Alex part.
We spent a long time together and after a while, I went up to my room for a bath and a rest.
Well, like I said, I only get to enjoy these privileges when dad was around .
The moment he leaves again by tomorrow, my life's gonna turn into a living hell.
I brought out my diary and wrote about my little experience with Alex.
It was very brief, but meant a lot to me . I kept smiling the whole time.
I remembered his sweet words to me:
"Do you realise this is a restricted area?"
Hold on; did I just say sweet?
Well, at that moment, they were scary. But right now, they're sweet.
I could recall how cute he looked when he turned around to pick up the keys - those dazzling eyes of his; the nose; the sweet pink lips and the hair.
I wish I could be hold that face again. Even if it was just for a second.
'I really like you, Alex' I wrote in my diary.
'And I wish I could take away the sadness you feel.
Too bad you now dislike ladies'.
I closed the diary and led upwards, rethinking the whole thing.
I really wish I can get to see Alex again.
Well, tomorrow was tuesday, right? And we had further maths.
Mr Leonard's definitely going to force him to come to class.
I really can't wait.
I wish I get to sit next to him.
I woke up the next morning, feeling kind of excited.
I had breakfast and dressed up and after that, dad dropped me off at school.
"See you later, Jeanne" he told me as he stopped in front of the school and awaited me to step down.
I was sitting down at the front seat with him.
"Dad" I called sadly.
"When will you be travelling?"
"Oh; in less than two hours" he replied and my eyes drooped.
"Uhm...how long will it take before you return?"
"Uhm...I don't know; maybe some weeks".
My heart ached when he told me about it. I can't imagine what it's going to be like living with those family of his.
"Don't worry, Jeanne. Everything will be fine, okay?" He said she kissed my forehead and I smiled and left the car.
Back again in Alpha High. I hope today won't be as boring as yesterday.
I started walking into the building, admiring all the students I came across. Too bad none of them paid attention to me.
I got to the classroom and took a seat at the back close to the window.
More students kept trooping in and I looked curiously for the loverboys.
Oh; maths was the last subject before break.
That means the loverboys might not be coming now.
After a short while, the first teacher came in and took us on science.
I just jolted perfunctorily as that wasn't what I was waiting for.
Then, after 45 minutes, the next teacher came in and took us on social norms. And finally, it was time for maths!
I can hardly wait!
The maths teacher came in and commenced teaching and I was kind of puzzled because the loverboys were yet to come.
I itched my head and couldn't pay attention to the lesson because my mind was occupied.
Where are the loverboys? I thought they never fail to miss Mr Leonard's class?
I became brood and totally lost focus in the class.
I had really planed on seeing them.
"Can anyone help with the equation on the board?" Mr Leonard's voice broke into my thoughts and I took a look at the board.
It was a familiar equation.
"Yes? Anyone? Jeanne? The new student?" He called and I felt surprised he had actually called my name.
Some of the students turned and looked at me and I became nervous.
"Jeanne, can you help us out?" He asked again and I stuttered and stood on my feet.
"Uhm...okay sir" I replied as I walked up to the front of the class and took the marker from him.
Then, I faced the board and started solving the equation.
like I said, it was a familiar equation. But since it was further maths, it had to be lengthy.
I was still focused on the board, solving the equation when I suddenly heard the students gasping and jiltering.
I turned to see what was going on and...Oh, my God!
Oh, my God!
They really did come!
Am I dreaming?

� The Loverboys
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
My cheeks turned red immediately and my eyes beamed.
The Loverboys are here!
They fulfilled my wish.
Wait, hold on; where's Alex?
Yes, where's Alex?
I mean, he's not with them.
The only Loverboys I can see are Carl, Daniel and Malcolm.
Don't tell me he's not coming.
I watched despondently as the three Loverboys took separate seats and oh, my; they're so cute.
They were so charming and dreamy, just that my Alex was still unbeatable.
But where's he?
"Uhm...miss Jeanne" Mr Leonard called and pointed to the board and I understood he wanted me to continue with the equation.
I became sad as the thought of not seeing Alex niggled at me.
I was about turning around when I saw a young dazzling masculine figure entering into the class.
I left my mouth open as a gasp escaped it.
Oh, my God; it was Alex!
The leader of the Loverboys; my crush!
Oh, my God!
He really did come!
I stood motionless as I watched him walk into the class, looking all broody.
He had so many jewelleries and was heavenly cute. Even a blind man would trip for him.
He was so stylish; even with the way he walked.
Can someone really be this perfect?
I mean, so rich, crazily handsome, stylish, famous and all that.
He was just too cute; too cute that I feel there's no one else like him.
Oh, my Alex.
I watched him as he ran his fingers into his hair and looked around for a seat.
Then, Holy Mary, he took my seat!
I mean, yes!
He picked up my bag from the locker and kept it on the next seat which was vacant and then, he took my seat.
Oh, my God!
Alex just touched my bag.
Am I day dreaming or what?
I'm definitely going to take that bag to the museum.
"Haven't I warned you all to switch off your phones?" Mr Leonard asked, referring to the students that were already taking pictures of the Loverboys with their phones.
They giggled and switched it off.
"Miss Jeanne" he called and I shrugged out of my thoughts and turned back to the board.
I tried focusing on the equation and prayed I don't end up writing Alex's name on the board.
In less than two minutes, I saw done and handed the marker to Mr loenard.
He went through the equation for a short time and released a light smile.
"Wow! That's correct. Quite impressive" he said and I felt my head becoming two.
Oh, Alex did you see that?
I was able to solve the equation.
"Thank you sir" I said to Mr Leonard and tired going back to my seat.
My seat; Alex was already there.
Oh, God! What do I do now?
But the next seat was vacant.
Hold on; doss this mean I'm going to have to sit next to Alex?
I noticed some of the students were now staring at me as they also wanted to know what would happen.
And Alex wasn't even staring at me or anyone. He just leaned on the chair and starred outside. He probably had no idea what was going on.
I walked slowly to the row and stood in front of him. But he didn't even turn to look at me.
Wait; what if he recognises me as the lady he had seen in that store the previous day?
I quietly took my books from the locker and moved on to the next sea where my bag had already been kept.
He still didn't make an attempt to look at me; like I was just invisible or something.
I sat on my 'new' locker and sighed nervously.
I really can't believe I'm sitting next to Alex.
The maths teacher continued teaching but I swear, my attention was so not there.
All I could think about was the lovervoy sitting next to me.
There was a particular fragrance that came from him and it was so sweet. I wonder what body spray be used. I'm sure one of it could buy a house.
I noticed the jewelries on him. They looked expensive and glittered like they were made of gold.
He had one on his ear, then three on his wrist and a long gold chain. And I also noticed he had a tattoo on his hand.
This boy's really something else.
I looked down at his shoes and noticed they were designers. It was the latest fad in the country.
Everything about him was so classic and expensive.
Too bad I couldn't really look at his face because he'd have caught me staring and might angrily move to another seat.
I don't want that to happen.
He didn't even come with a book or pen. The only things I saw him with were three big phones and car keys.
He kept staring through the window but after some time, he opened one of his phones and started operating it.
I tried to have a peep at what he was doing and noticed he was just viewing pictures of clothes, shoes, jewelries.
He's not even interested in the class. And he's also not interested in me.
I wonder what really happened that changed him this way.
"Switch off your phones, Alex." Mr Leonard said and all eyes turned to him - Alex.
I also turned and looked at him. I mean, everyone was staring at him. So, this was an opportunity.
I looked at him and...wow! Look at his spotless face. This was the first time I was viewing him from such a close range.
Where do you come from, Mr?
"Mr Leo, I listen with my ears, not my eyes" he replied churlishly and few of the students chuckled.
Oh, my God; is he this rude?
Mr Leonard looked angry, but just when he was about saying something, three people walked into the class - two men and one woman.
The students started mumbling as they all wondered why they were there.
They walked up to Mr Leonard and made a silent conversation with him and afterwards, they came up to my locker; no, not my locker; but Alex's locker.
Who are they?
"Sorry for the disturbance, sir Alex; but we have a little question for you:" the woman among them said and Alex just glanced at her and took his eyes back to his phone.
"Uhm...Some very vital items have gone missing from the storage room you had made use of yesterday while practicing on your keyboard. So, we jus wanted to know if you might have any idea about it" the woman said and my heart gave a mighty leap.
what? Some vital items were stolen?
But how come she's questioning Alex? I was in the room with him.
Alex scoffed and looked at her.
"Hold on; are you trying to accuse me of something?" He asked.
"No, no, no sir Alex. Please don't misunderstand us. Of course you can never do such a thing. It's unimaginable.
We just want to know if there was someone else with you at that moment. Or, if you had seen someone else entering or leaving the room" the woman said and my eyes dilated.
This is not happening.
I...I was the only one with Alex in that room. And.. he had seen my face.
But I didn't take anything. I didn't.
My heart was beating so fast.
Alex suddenly turned and looked at me and I felt my breath becoming still.
Jesus, no. This is not happening.
Is he really going to call my name?
But I didn't do it.

(Be my daughter's nanny)
By: Faith Lucky.
Our eyes ran into each other and he just glanced at me and took his eyes back to his phone.
"I don't know anything about it" he said. "I didn't see anyone in the room".
My heart skipped immediately as I looked at him in disbelieve.
Hold on, did Alex just cover up for me?
like, did he just lie for my sake?
"Okay, sir Alex. Thanks a lot for your time. We apologise for the inconvenience" the woman said and left with the two men beside her.
I took my eyes away from Alex and starred down at my locker. The whole thing still seemed a dream to me.
Why did Alex lie to the woman? Did he really do that to protect me?
But he doesn't even know me. He barely looks at me.
Why did he cover up for me?
I smiled, even if I tried not to.
My Alex defended me today.
Although it's possible he only did that because he was an introvert and didn't care about other people's issues, but it still meant a lot to me.
Or, could it be possible he doesn't recognise me?
I swear, my cheeks couldn't stop turning red the rest of the time.
The fact that my Alex defended me today still looked like a miracle to me.
How can I thank him enough?
Immediately the maths class was over, he stood up and left the class even before Mr Leonard did.
I looked at him as he walked away and when Mr Leonard finally left the class, the rest of the Loverboys also stood up and left.
Immediately, all the students started noistering and viewing all the pictures they had taken the Loverboys with their phones.
� Oh, my! Check out Carl's hairstyle. It's so pretty
� Yes did you see Alex? He was sitting next to the newbie
� Oh! How I wish I was the one
� look at Daniel's glasses
� Did you notice the ring Alex was putting on?
I looked at them and smiled.
The lover boys were such a celebrity. They're so lucky.
It was time for lunch and not really being hungry, I just bought some cupcakes and a canned drink from the canteen and looked for a quiet place to stay.
Luckily, I found an isolated place behind the school library and I sat on the floored ground.
I took a bite from my cup cake and drank from my canned drink.
I ate with relishment as I recalled the wonderful maths class.
How I wish we could take maths thrice a day.
I smiled as I recalled the moment when alex had walked into the class.
I remembered when he had touched my bag.
Oh, my bag!
I smiled and hugged it and kissed it.
From now on, this bag means a lot to me. I don't think I'm even going toto wash it.
I recalled the moment he had stared at me when the woman had asked him that question.
It was so beautiful.
Oh, Alex; when am I ever going to be so close to him again?
I opened my bag and brought out my song book and the 1st page I saw was the lyrics of one of my sad songs.
It was about my family.
Come to think of it; where are my family? Who could they be? Do I even have one?
Of course I do. Everyone has a family.
But, where could mine be?
And why didn't they show up when Mr Raymond had put me up on TV?
And why did I have to lose my memories four years ago?
But come to think of it; four years ago. That was the same year the loverboys had a conflict and Theo left the band.
Quite a coincidence.
I turned to the next page and it was still about my family.
I looked at it and started singing it out.
� What if I have a family?
Somewhere beyond the sea?
Could there be someone there missing me?
� I need to know these answers
I need to find my way...�
"That's from Barbie, right?" I heard a tiny sweet voice ask and I turned curiously and found a young, pretty kid standing in front of me.
"The song- it's from barbie right?" She asked as she drew close and stood in front of me.
She was actually smiling.
"Uhm...yes." I replied perfunctorily, taking a good look at her and trying to figure who she was.
She was very pretty and had her long hair parked into two.
She had a toy with her and looked quite rich and I figured maybe...she was a sister to one of the students.
"Oh, my God! You also love barbie? My friends always tell me she's outdated and it kind of makes angry. But it seems I've found someone else who's like me" she said happily and I just kept staring at her.
She seemed very bold and confident.
"And you have a nice voice" she added and I smiled.
"Thanks" I replied and she nodded happily.
"By the way, do you know any more of barbie songs?" She asked.
"Uhm...yes. A little".
"Oh! Could you sing more to me, please? I really love listening to her songs. Too bad I don't know how to sing. And my brother's always too busy to help me out."
Oh; so she does have a brother?
"Could you sing for me, please?" She said in an appealing tone.
"Uh...maybe. but right now, I'm eating..."
"I'll wait" she cut in immediately and I scoffed.
Where does this kid come from?
I took up my cupcake Nd ate from it and she stared at me.
"Want some?" I asked and she nodded after a little reluctancy.
Then I fed some of the cupcakes to her and cleaned off the little particles that fell on her lips.
"Uhm...by the way, who are you? Are you here with someone?" I asked and she pulled a surprised face.
"You seriously don't know me?" She asked and I shrugged.
Am I supposed to know her?
But I must say, she kind looks familiar.
"Molly!" I heard someone call and I looked and saw a woman walking towards my direction with two armed men.
"Oh, my God, molly! What re you doing here? You made me worried again." She said as she took the little girl beside me.
Oh, my God! It was Mrs Tristan - Alex's mum.
I sprang on my feet immediately and the canned drink I held spilled on the floor.
"I'm sorry, mum. I was just taking a look around" the little girl replied and my eyes beamed.
What? She's Alex's sister! The one I've heard about.
No wonder she looked so rich and bold. She was just like her brother.
"And what re you eating?" Mrs Tristan asked after observing her lips and then she looked at me.
My legs were almost shaking.
I have standing in front of the loverboys mum.
"G...Good day, ma'am" I stuttered nervously, keeping my gaze low.
"And who are you?" She asked inquisitively.
"She's a nice person, mum" Molly replied immediately.
"She has a nice voice and also loves barbie."
Mrs Tristan scoffed and looked surprised and at the same time, bemused.
"Did...did you just say she's a nice person? Like...do you like her, Molly?" She asked and molly nodded excitedly.
Then she exhaled and looked at me.
"What's your name?' She asked.
"Uhm. ..miss Jeanne, ma'am" I replied with a little bow.
"Jeanne" she called softly.
"I can't believe my daughter likes you. Believe me, it's rare.
It's really not been easy on me- managing my business and taking care of her. She's gone missing several times. And last time, and had all most fallen into a ditch.
"My son is always very busy and doesn't have time for himself, not to mention taking care of his sister."
She paused and looked at Molly.
"Baby, would you like her to be your new nanny?" She asked and my heart skipped.
My eyes dilated.
"Well...I don't know. But I really do like her" molly replied and Mrs Tristan looked back at me, her eyes beaming.
"Oh, Jeanne, would you consider being my daughter's nanny, please? Please, I beg of you. I'll do anything you ask for" she said pleadingly, placing her two palms together.
okay; this has got to be a dream.
Is this really happening?
Like, Mrs Tristan's asking me to become her daughter's nanny and...and that'd mean for me to start living in the loverboys mansion?
