( I can’t stop Loving you �)

Anthony’s POV

I had just woke , sitting on my bed with my chin resting on my right palm like someone lost in thought.

Yes! I’m truly lost in thought. Everyday I wake , the memories of Donna and I springs afresh in me.

Even though, Donna is no more, her memories with me is stuck in my brain. The pain I feel everyday, anytime I remembered the day I met her �

Do I need to think about her smile or our days of going out together, being together, laughing together and crying together

We started dating when I was 19 years, she was 17 years. Our love grew beyond our expectations and at a time when I never expected, Donna travelled with her family out of the country and on their way coming, they had a plain crashed. Everyone in the plane died including Donna and her family members.

When I heard, I felt the greatest shock of my life. I held the necklace she gave to me as a gift on my 22nd birthday and sunk to my knees, I cried the hell outta me

I promise myself to keep loving her even though she is no more, I had never seen any girl, nor will I ever see any girl that would replace the love of Donna in my heart.

I put on the necklace she gave to me everyday, it’s my greatest treasure, it’s always on my neck even when I’m sleeping. Anytime I hold the necklace, it’s like I’m holding Donna

I miss her every morning, I sing songs and play my keyboard � in remembrance of her. Anytime I sing and play, the feelings of her love radiates and fills my soul and body.

Who am I?

I’m Anthony Nicholas, the only son of Nicholas.

My father owned the largest music school in New York.

Music had always being my passion, attending the school is never an issue for me.

I and my two closest friends, Brian and Scot are a brand of a artistes called FLOWER BOYS.

My dad created the record label for us, just the three of us in the record label and most songs that we had released hits the whole of America which makes us very popular,even though we are one of the most popular and cute artiste in America, I dislike being on news, I like a private life.

Most ladies in school adore us , they claim we are the most handsome in the school, they say I’m cute, they treat us almost like god and I use that privilege to bully many students

I dislike ladies , I dislike to see them, my class is filled with boys alone cus I always frustrate and make life hell of a living for any girl that attends my class. They always end up changing classes or leaving the school

More so, I have the power to expel any student,my dad is the owner of the school. Most ladies who prove stubborn after I must have frustrated them for being in my class, I always end up expelling them from the school. I dislike ladies with passion. I may not see the one I Love but she lives inside of me�

I stood from my bed and went to sit at the extreme edge of my room where my keyboard is. I must confess that I’m very good in playing keyboard. Dad made me learnt it since I was 8 years

I placed my hands on the keyboard and the memories of Donna kept flashing across my head.

Tears rolled gently from my eyes as I played and sing

� �

� I’ll be loving you forever �

�Deep inside my heart you’ll leave me never�

�Even if you took my heart�

�And tore it apart�

�I would love you still


�You are the sun�

�You are my light

�And you’re the last thing on my mind

�Before I go to sleep at night

�You’re always round

�When I’m in need

�When trouble’s on my mind

�You put my soul at ease

�There is no one in this world

�Who can love me like you do

�That is the reason that I

Wanna spend forever with you


My phone buzzed during the middle of me enjoying the memories of my Love with Donna while singing and playing the keyboard

With tears filled on my eye, I stood up and went to pick the call

“� Anthony, please don’t come late to the auditioning, we are to meet with the chairmen of Universe record label before the commencement of the show � ” Brian’s voice sounded softly on the phone

� Oh! I’m gonna try to come early � ” I said and hanged up

One of my closest friend had just called me, yes! I need to prepare for the auditioning today.

My Father’s music school is named “Nicholas High”

We do not admit student based on their intelligence or how good they are in a particular subject, the auditioning is the test we give to those wanting to be admitted in the school, Brian, Scot and I are always the judge.

The auditioning is the time where every one who collects a form of wanting to he accepted to Nicholas high , they come to the stage one after the other to display their musical talent, If two among us agreed that the person’s song is cool, the person has being automatically admitted to the school. And if two amidst us refuses, the person is automatically disqualified

I sighed and dropped my phone on the bed , I went inside the bathroom to dress but the memories of Donna kept flashing across my mind and I kept enjoying it. I came out of the bathroom , dressed and went to Nicholas high for the auctioning


Nancy’s POV

I heard a knock on my door, I had just finish cleansing my husky face with ordinary water in the bathroom

I walked towards the door and twisted the knob

“Good morning dad” I greeted my dad

“My beautiful daughter, hope you slept well, I came to tell you to be quick in whatever you are doing so you can get to the school quiet early for the auditioning” My father said with a welcoming smile on his face

I blushed and smiled

“Dad, I’m gonna make my dressings snappy” I said

He nodded and walked away

I watched as he left, I love my dad, my mum divorced him for another man because of infidelity, but I do not think my dad is guilty of such.

Ever since my mom left, I had never seen any lady coming to visit dad. I loved my dad because he is a gentle and caring type. He is very understanding

I closed the door gently and checked the wall clock, it’s almost an hour for the auditioning to commence

“I must not get there late, I need to be fast truly” I thought as I quickly went to the bathroom to take my bath

☀�☀Three days ago����☀

� Flash back✨�

Some weeks ago, I had being searching for jobs seriously , I need a decent job, while I was searching online, I stumbled across many jobs, but there is a particular request that got my attention, it’s a particular woman requesting for a babysitter. Her mobile number was written underneath the request so anyone interested can call her

I really love the job of a babysitter cus I love to play and stay around children

I know a baby sitter to be someone who cares for one or more babies or children for a period of time in place of their parents or legal guardians

I was happy that at least, If I’m able to get the babysitter job, I would be able to gather enough money and support my father in payment of our monthly rent.

We pay rent monthly and my father is not rich, ever since mom divorced him, mom ensured he lost his job and ever since then, he had being struggling for a living, taking a job and helping him will be the best thing I could have done to help him.

I put a call through to the woman who requested for a babysitter, she picked, we discussed and she gave me an address to visit the following day.

I went to the woman’s place and we discussed on the terms and conditions of the job, I gladly accepted.

The girl I’m to be babysitting was introduced to me, her name is Helen, she is five years old, she is smart , a little bit fleshy and beautiful.

“Helen” I called her name and smiled after her mom had introduced us

She smiled at me and hugged me, I carried her instead and pecked her .

I’m happy she likes me already, even on our first day of getting to meet each other

Her mum smiled

“You can resume work tomorrow” Helen’s mum said and walked away

“Helen, you are really beautiful, I can’t wait to play with you all day tomorrow” I said while smiling

“Why can’t you stay, I want you to meet brother, he promised to buy me fortune cookie” Helen said

I smiled

“If that’s what you want, I’ll stay till he comes” I said and paced Helen on the chair

I sat beside her and we started playing games together, after few minutes, some people entered behind us.

Helen turned and saw them , she ran towards them and flew on the shoulder of the one in middle

I had stood already , stylishly looking at them since I’m a just stranger

“Anthony, see Nancy, she is my new friend, mum said she is gonna be taking care of me for the time being” Helen said and they walked towards me

That was when I saw them clearly, they are the flower boys, the one in the middle is their leader, his fans call him flower boy

“Omg! I’m your biggest fan, I’ve being crushing on you for long, I can’t believe I’m seeing you, is this a dream, I have your posters all around my room, I have your song as my call ringtone, your picture is my phone wallpaper and also my profile pic on most of my social media account, can someone wake me! I like you, I like you so much, omg! I can’t imagine” I thought crazily, I wish I could say that out but he might just sack me from the job I’d just received

I comported myself and lowered my head slightly

“Who are you?” Anthony asked

“I’m Nancy Ja…” I said but he interrupted

“Enough, I do not need your surname, you are Nancy right?, what are you doing here?” Anthony asked

“Erm… Actually, I’m the new babysitter for Helen” I replied gently

“You can’t work here , you are fired, leave” Anthony said with an expressionless face

“But mom gave me the job and …” Before I could finish the statement, he went to the center table in the sitting room, he took a water bottle and spray the water in it to me

“you are just an ugly ducking , husky face and shameless body structure, Leave, before I do something crazier right now” He said

His friends kept looking at me with an expressionless face

I looked at Helen, she looked at me pathetically. I knew she didn’t like what his brother did, but she can’t help it.

I walked out painfully


Flashback Ends

I dressed and bade my dad good bye, he wished me good luck.

I got to Nicholas high and entered the hall, I went to where the anticipating students stood.

They were calling them in one after the other with their names cus everyone that came had already collected Nicholas high form and registered including me

Many people were entering and performing, some passed, some failed.

I finally heard my name being called, I arched my brow in shock, my heart was beating.

I walked towards the stage and I was surprised to see that the flower boys were the judge

“They hate me, I’ve failed already” I thought painfully

“What song do you wanna sing for us Nancy?” One of them asked

I sighed and swallowed hard

“Ed sheeran, photograph” I replied

They gestured for me to commence


�Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes

But it’s the only thing that I know

When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes

It is the only thing makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts are never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep me

Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans

Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet

�You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home


I sang with all my emotions expressed with my voice, I waited anxiously on the stage ready to hear the result.

“Wow! I like your voice, for me. Yes” the first flower boy said and I almost jumped up happily but I had to wait for one more person to approve

“No, you have an ugly voice” Anthony said

I said it, he disliked me but I never stopped liking him, I still have a hope, if the last person can say yes, then , I’m qualified

“Well, for me, I’d say you did well, you have an awesome voice , Yes” The last flower boy said and I jumped up for joy

Anthony’s POV

“Why would you, huh? Why have you done that, I employed someone and you have the gut to sack the poor girl, Is it her fault that your girlfriend died, I employed her for Helen not you, anyways, the girl is coming back and you dare not touch her” My mother said angrily

Helen had told her about my actions towards Nancy few days ago, I can’t believe my mum is supporting this girl , how can I live in the same roof with a female

I dislike female with passion, when my mom talked about the death of my girlfriend, Donna, my heart skipped, I felt like crying but that will only make me look weak before mum

I know that life will be hell of a living for that girl in this house.

I left the presence of my mum and went inside , I buried my head under my pillow and sobbed, I Loved Donna so much.

She is my first Love, she is perfect, she is the one that completes me, she is the one my heart desire

“Donna! Why would you die, huh? Why would you” I said to myself crazily

I’m going crazy, my Love for Donna keeps increasing day by day even though I can’t see her

“No, Donna can’t be dead, may be she fell from the plane into the deep sea, may be she is safe, may be she will come back” I muttered

My heart is heavy, it is torn, I’m shattered . Love has broken me

“Donna” I yelled and grabbed my duvet .

I sobbed �

Tears rolled from my eyes warmly , I do not have any hope of seeing Dona

I remembered that day Donna and I went to bar last before she travelled with her family and experienced plane crash with her family

We sat together then and drank together, we discussed about the future , I remembered her revealing her set of teeth that is as white as snow when we were talking about the number of children we will give birth to in the future

“Donna why?” I said

When I can’t control myself again, I went to my keyboard and played

� � � � �

It’s been so long

That I haven’t seen your face

I’m tryna be strong

But the strength I have is washing away

It wont be long before I get you by my side

And just hold you, tease you, squeeze you

Tell you what’s been on my mind


I wanna make up right now na na

I wanna make up right now na na

Wish we never broke up right now na na

We need to link up right now na na


Girl I know, mistakes were made between us two

And we show our ass that night even said somethings weren’t true

Why’d you go and haven’t seen my girl since then

Why can’t it be the way it was

‘Cause you were my homie, lover and friend


I played with all my emotions, remembering Donna , I sobbed the more.

I remembered that I would be going to school that morning, I went to the bathroom , dressed and head off to school.

Nancy’s POV

I still didn’t know why Anthony dislikes me , I like him so much. I never knew we could even meet

I thought while getting prepared for school.


I’ve being admitted to Nicholas high. I’m commencing school today

I’m gonna make new friends and have all the fun of my life in school.

I dressed up and stared at my beautiful self in the wall mirror, wow! I can’t believe I’m this beautiful

I slung my school bag across my shoulder when my phone suddenly buzzed

“Who could that be” I thought and picked the call

� Hello, is this Nancy � A voice sounded

� Yes ma � I replied

� Good, please do not mind what my son, Anthony did, he does not have the power to sack you, please resume work today � The woman said

� Alright ma, I’ll come there when returning from school , thanks so much ma, how is Helen? � I asked

� She is fine, she misses you too, she will be expecting you by evening cus I don’t really stay at home, I move from one city to the other, call me if Anthony is making life difficult for you � She said

� Alright ma � I said and hung up

“What the heck, I thought she should be at home, how can I babysit Helen comfortably when Anthony does not like me, but who really cares? I’m happy that I will be living with Anthony, seeing him alone makes me happy, I really like him” I muttered and stared at his picture on my wall, I went to it and peck it

I walked out of the room and went to school.


Anthony’s POV

As soon as I got to school, my phone buzzed briefly, I knew it was an SMS, I checked it and saw a message from my father saying I should meet him at his office

“Hope everything is alright?” I asked myself cus dad doesn’t send for me abruptly like this

I went to meet him at his office

“Sit son” He said and gestured for me to sit

I noticed a lady sitting on the second chair facing him , I ignored the lady and sat on the first chair facing my father

“Anthony, meet Karen, Karen meet Anthony” My father said

“Hi” Karen said

“Hi” I replied Karen cus I respected my father, if not, why would dad introduce me to an opposite sex when he knows I hated them with passion

“Anthony, Karen is the daughter of the CEO of Universe record label, she lived all her life in Germany with her mother , but her Father brought her here to attend this school cus of her passion for music. And trust me, she is very good” my father said and paused

I wondered why my dad is saying all this

” So if she is the daughter of the biggest record label in America, what should I do with her then?” I thought curiously

“Anthony, take a look at Helen” My father said

I squeezed my face but I still had to obey father, I turned my gaze at her and looked at her

She is slim and beautiful, her lips are red.

I turned my gaze at Father

“She is cool” I said to my dad . I do not want to use the word beautiful

“She is gonna make a perfect girlfriend right?” Dad asked

“What are you talking about?” I asked furiously in my heart. I dare not say it out

“Dad” I said and paused

“Anthony , don’t feel shy, I know you like her , so what?” my dad said and smiled

I stole a glance at Karen, she also maintained a smiling face

“I was really furious at father, is he forcing me to date Karen or what?” I thought

“Anyways, I do not expect you to fall in Love with her immediately , so I thought of the best thing that will enhance your relationship, she will be staying with you in the house” Dad said

“Dad” I yelled and paused

I felt I could do something crazy to my dad right now, but I can’t

“Why yelling my name?” My dad asked gently and looked at me sternly

“I’m sorry” I said and swallowed my anger cus I really didn’t have a choice

“You can go now” My dad said

I stood up immediately and went out furiously

“What is dad up too, did he think I would easily fall in Love with another female not when Donna is still in my heart” I thought and went to class


Nancy’s POV

I held the map of the school , my class had being circled with a blue ink in the map. I gazed at the map for minutes, I was frustrated cus I did not know how to read map

“Hi dear, are you confused?” A feminine voice asked from behind

“I am” I said and turned and I saw a very beautiful and tall lady

“Hi” I greeted

She smiled and collected the map from me, she saw my circled class in the map

“What!” She exclaimed

I blinked in surprise wondering why she yelled

“You won’t last long in this school, in fact, you are out already” She said

My heart beats in fear of what she just said

“What did you mean please?” i asked anxiously

“This class is for the flower boys, all the boys there are rich , most ladies who got unlucky to be fixed to their class always end up being frustrated, even if the girl proves stubborn, Flower boy himself will sack the lady” the lady said

I sighed

“What am I suppose to do now?” I asked

“My name is Patricia and You?” The lady asked

“I’m Nancy” I replied

She gestured for me to follow her and I obliged.

We got to a particular class

“This is the class for flower boys, I hope you can cope” Patricia said

I sighed heavily

“I hope so” I replied

“That is my class” Patricia said pointing to the class beside the flower boys class

I nodded

“You can come by break and let’s have fun” Patricia said and went to her class

I entered the class and I saw few boys strolling around, some were discussing, others were sitting and reading

I was looking for a sit for myself when I heard a voice behind me

“Yes? are you mistaken?” A voice sounded inquisitively from behind

I turned swiftly and saw Anthony and his two friends.

I shook my head and bowed. Other boys started rallying round me

“Is this her class for real..is she really fixed to this class…why is she is so unlucky…” Many of those boys starting rumouring audibly into my ears

Flower boy walked closer to me

“Are you fixed to this class for real?” Anthony asked

I nodded

He giggled and laughed, everyone laughed

Everyone continued laughing.

I wondered why they kept laughing

I found out that the laughter is not from their heart , it is not genuine , it is a laughter of mockery

Anthony was laughing and his face was still stern, but I really like his beautiful face as I stole glances at him as he laughs

He stopped laughing abruptly and as if all of them had planned it, they all stopped laughing at once

“You are only welcome to this class if you can do one thing” Anthony said

I smiled

“What is it?” I asked anxiously and happily

“You know what? Everyone of us here dislikes ladies and everything about ladies, you gonna go to the front of the class there and sing while we sit, if you can sing and make any of the flower boys stand up because of your song, you are welcome, let me tell you this too, If you can truly make me stand up from my sit with your voice , you will become my friend, I know you can’t do it cus the only person that can do that is dead” Anthony said

I smiled as he spoke but my smile changed to a sterned one when he talked about someone that had died . I wondered who the person was

“I would like to give it a try” I said ready to take up the challenge

Anthony smirked and signalled for everyone to sit, he went to sit too

I dropped my bag on a chair. I walked forward.

I sing;


Goodbye to you my trusted friend

We’ve known each other since we were nine or ten

Together we’ve climbed hills and trees

Learned of love and ABC’s

Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees

Goodbye my friend it’s hard to die

When all the birds are singing in the sky

Now that spring is in the air

Pretty girls are everywhere

Think of me and I’ll be there ��

Before I could sing the chorus, most of the boys in the class had stood up including two of the flower boys.

I wish Anthony can stand up because I really wanna be his friend as he promised



We had joy, we had fun

we had seasons in the sun

But the hills that we climbed

Were just seasons out of time


Omg! Anthony stands up with a smile mixed with tears on his face

I happily sang the chorus again and everyone sang with me;


We had joy, we had fun

we had seasons in the sun

But the hills that we climbed

Were just seasons out of time

(I am strong on your shoulders )

Download and listen to WESTLIFE – YOU RAISE ME UP

Anthony’s POV

The song Nancy sang made me remember my days with Donna, my heart tickles and my imaginations gets flooded with Donna.

My memories with Donna arose strongly in me, the emotion at which Nancy sang with got me.

I promise myself not to stand no matter what and how she sing but I felt sorry for myself when I realized that I stood up

It was crazier when my colleagues noticed that I was crying including Nancy, I dislike being seeing by a lady crying, it makes me feel I’m weak

I cleaned my face gently with my handkerchief.

I do not have any choice now, she had made all the flower boys stand up in class including me.

I walked to her

“Welcome to this class” I said to her

“Thanks” she said softly with her head bowed

“Do I really need to keep the second promise, I do not want you as my friend, I only said that cus I’m so certain your song can never make me stand , but your song really got me. I’m thinking, maybe I can give you some sort of cash or something , can you ask for something else, I’d be glad to willingly do it for you” I said to Nancy

She shook her head with her head still bowed

“What’s the meaning of that?” I asked

She raised her head and looked at me in fear.

Something Struck my heart like a needle, the way she just looked at me is the same way Donna looks at me when I’m scolding her

She bowed her head again

“Actually, I do not want anything, I just want you to fulfil your promise” Nancy said

“Oh really? Must you be friends with me?” I said feeling very irritated at her.

I’m stuck here, I can’t break my promise , I’d promised her already.

Nancy nodded slowly

“Fine, fine” I said painfully . I disliked ladies.

“Why do I have to make this promise ” I thought and closed my eyes tightly feeling a great pain

I sighed

Nancy looked up

“So I’m your friend now” Nancy said

“Yes” I said sternly and walked back to my place.


Nancy’s POV

Omg! I exclaimed inaudibly after he fulfilled his promise of being my friend, I was so happy but sad that he is still cold.

It’s obvious he doesn’t want to be friends with me neither did he wants me accepted to this class, but I’m happy I passed the text he gave me, he even stood up.

“But why is he not happy and why would he cry, is it because of the song I sang or because of something else” I thought

I went to a new sit I found for myself and sat. I can’t believe I’m in the same class with the flower boys

I liked where my sit is, I can easily steal glances at flower boy, his face is always expressionless, not smiling, not sad. Just still

A teacher entered after few minutes that I had sat

“Good morning class” The teacher greeted

“Hi” Few students replied while the others remained silent

I wondered why they can’t all greet the man.

“Yesterday , I talked to us about the basics of keyboard

Learning to read music is like learning a second language. There are no shortcuts – you simply have to slowly familiarise yourself with the grammar and appearance of written music. I gave an easy introduction to the piano keyboard and how music is written yesterday.” The teacher said as he strolls to and fro in the class facing us

“Today, I’m gonna be talking about how to sit at the keyboard

• Always sit in the middle of the keyboard. Use an adjustable stool, if possible, to find the most comfortable height.

• Sit with your back straight, shoulders in a relaxed position. Imagine there is a string attached to the top of your head, gently pulling upwards.

• Keep your fingers rounded over the keys. Fingers curved, wrists level with your arm. Imagine you are holding a ball under each hand.

• Keep both feet firmly on the ground. ” The teacher taught and I took down some points inside my notepad just like other students did

“Now, let’s move to the practical class” The teacher said and went to the free space behind the last sets of benches and chairs

There is a keyboard there with a stool.

The teacher walked towards the keyboard and positioned himself in the same way he had taught us

“Did you all see how I positioned myself and my hands, when you wanna sing and play, you must have mastered playing of keyboards for a very long time, that implies you can play any sound of music without waiting for the tony sofa, Did we get that?” The teacher asked

“Yeah” the whole class who had stood and rallied round him all said

“Good, all you have to do is sing a song coming from your heart , remember you play the keyboard with you heart too, so you gonna be playing keyboard and singing all at once cus they are both emanating from the same source which is the heart, are we cleared?” The teacher taught conclusively

“Yeah” the whole class echoed

“Good, can anyone try to sing and play keyboard at the same time for us here, so others can watch him as he does?” The teacher asked

“I will” Flower boy said

The teacher stood up and signalled for Anthony to come sit at the stool before the keyboard

Anthony, who is the flower boy sat in the same position the teacher sat. His fingers were rounded over they keys and curved and his wrist levelled with his arms

“wao! Flower boy is so intelligent ” I exclaimed inaudibly

He looks extremely handsome before the keyboard

“This is very good. He got the sitting position I taught right” the teacher commented on Flower boy’s sitting position

“James Blunt, title is Goodbye my Lover” Flower said

We all watched as flower boy sing and played at the same time.

�� � ��

Did I disappoint you or let you down?

Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?

‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,

Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.

So I took what’s mine by eternal right.

Took your soul out into the night.

It may be over but it won’t stop there,

I am here for you if you’d only care.

You touched my heart

you touched my soul.

You changed my life and all my goals.

And love is blind and that I knew when,

My heart was blinded by you.

I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.

Shared your dreams and shared your bed.

I know you well, I know your smell.

I’ve been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover. �

Goodbye my friend. �

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.



I’ve seen you cry, I’ve seen you smile.

I’ve watched you sleeping for a while.

I’d be the father of your child.

I’d spend a lifetime with you.

I know your fears and you know mine.

We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine,

And I love you, I swear that’s true.

I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover. �

Goodbye my friend. �

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.

In mine when I’m asleep.

And I will bear my soul in tim�

When I’m kneeling at your feet.

Goodbye my lover. �

Goodbye my friend. �

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.


Anthony’s POV

I sang with passion mixed with pain, I can never stop Loving Donna, I sang the song purposely for her .

Songs are my soft spot, I had cried unconsciously , others who watched too had a teary eyes while some cleaned the tears almost dropping at the corner of their eyes

Anyone could suspect that I had lost someone that completes me, the bone of my bone, Donna my heartbeat��

I stood up gently and took few steps away from the keyboard, I felt someone eyes gaze particularly on me. I directed my gaze at the person and It was Nancy

“Oh! Not again, she had seen tears in my eyes twice today, one of the reason why I do not want ladies around me, I wonder why she is looking at me ” I thought and looked away

“Guys, the time is fast spent, see you tomorrow,I guess I’m taking the last period tomorrow” The teacher said and few students nodded

The teacher walked out of the class while everyone walked back to their sits including me

Next teacher came to teach and left after his period.

The bell for break time rang!


Nancy’s POV

I knew Anthony had fulfill his promise of being my friend but I do not know how that will be , are we gonna be going out together by break or something

I sat in my place and waited for a while for him to show up but he didn’t

I remembered that the lady that helped me to this class said I can come to her by break.

Since her class is right beside our class, I do not have to go through the stress of searching her class

I stood at the entrance of her class and signaled for her by waving my arms

She sighted me, stood and walked towards me

“Hi Nancy, have you being expelled” Patricia asked

“No , I was given a test and I passed ” I said happily

“You mean to tell me that everything is going well with you and the flower boys” Patricia asked

“Yeah” I said happily and blushed

“Humn, such a lucky girl, should we go to the cafeteria together ” Patricia asked

“Sure” I replied

Patricia and I went to the cafeteria, we discussed extensively even on personal issues, we became close friends from there.

We went back to our various classes

Teachings proceeds and I must say it was really fun cus it’s most time theoretical and practical

The bell for closing time finally rang!

I slung my school bag and walked out of the class to meet Patricia since I know Anthony might not come.

Patricia and I walked out of the school together as we chatted about many things.

She took a cab home while I took a cab to Helen’s place. Her mum had said I can resume babysitting her

I only hope it goes well with Anthony , he will definitely finds out when he comes home, I do not want to think about how he is gonna react.

I got to Helen’s house. I was happy to see Helen, she looked more beautiful, she was happy to see me too.

Helen ran towards me and hugged me while I carried her in my arms instead

“Sorry for what Tony did the last time” Helen apologized on behalf of her brother

“It’s alright dear” I said and smiled as I walked inside carrying her on my shoulder

“Bring your school bag, let me start by helping you with your assignment” I said as I placed her gently on the floor

“Nancy, brother liked someone that can sing, I wish he can like you, but he might like you if you really know how to sing, do you?” Helen asked ignoring my question

“I now attend the same school with Anthony and my skilled voice made them admit me into the school” I replied

“Oh! So you are in the same school with brother, but brother dislikes you, he might expel you very soon, sing for me now . Please” Helen pleaded

I sighed

“It will be somehow dry without keyboard” I said

“Come …follow me” Helen said and pulled my wrist cus I was reluctant to stand up cus I had just returned from school and I’m a bit tired.

I wondered where she is taking me too. I stood up when I had no other choice.

She took me into a room, I need no one to tell me that it’s a musical room

“Wow! ” I exclaimed as I stared around the room

I saw a keyboard and a beautiful stool in before it

“Nancy, sit and play a song for me please, brother only has the time to play and sing for me once a while. ” Helen said with a pleading face

I smiled at her, I liked kids and their behaviors, that’s why I prefer a babysitting job, it has always being my passion to play with kids

“Sure, I will. So what songs can I play for you?” I asked

“Erm… My favorite… U raise me up ” Helen said and smiled

I played and sang


When I am down and oh my soul so weary

When troubles come and my heart burdened be

Then I am still and wait here in the silence

Until you come and sit a while with me

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders

You raise me up, to more than I can be


Chorus: �

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains (stand on mountains)

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas (stormy seas)

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders

You raise me up, to more than I can be

You raise me up, to more than I can be


“Wow” Someone said and clapped from behind

I turned to see who the person is

“Omg! It’s Anthony!
