I was stunned Donald appeared on the stage and came to hug me. I have no idea what he did that for.
“March inside.” Raymond declared and everyone started marching inside.
Donald had already made everyone believe that a relationship subsist bbetween he and I, I knew he said he loves me but isn’t his act to me now too odd.
Raymond walked to where Leonard and Donald stood. They walked away.
Pearl and I also started walking out of the assembly hall.
As soon as we got out of the assembly hall, Pearl jumped up happily.
” The ice creams…” She said and her face melted quickly into a pathetic one. “I thought I had lost free ice cream.”
Her face lightened up quickly again as she jumped up happily.
I shook my head and dragged her.
“I was scared, I was scared of what I would tell my mom.”I said as we waddled our way inside the class.
” Donald came to hug you? have you guys been up to something and you did not even tell me?” She asked with a squeezed face.
“He once told me he loves me.”I said and Pearl paused.
” Why will he love you? Oh no!” Pearl sat to the floor and started crying.
“What’s wrong with you Pearl, the first lecture will soon start.” I said but she only continued crying.
“I only told you what he tell me, why are you crying?” I asked her.
“I had been crushing on Donald and Raymond for a very long time.” She stood and dusted her cloth.
“Really?” I scoffed at her. I covered my mouth with my hand and adjusted back.
“What’s funny? you took Raymond away and I did not talk , now you took Donald.” She said and stood akimbo.
“You didn’t even have them in the first place, they didn’t even know you exist.” I said and laughed as I ran away.
She chased me while I laughed.
After the first lecture, someone came to me and said; “Please follow me.”
I turned to the female student and asked; “to where?”
“Raymond sends for you.” She replied and my heart skipped.
I became nervous that even my fingers shook on it’s own.
I did not know why.
I turned to Pearl and said; “Raymond send for me.”
“Go, maybe he wants to tell you he loves you, go quick.” She said and pushed me up.
“Han Han!” I said to Pearl and smiled lightly and then followed the girl.
The lady took me to a a room that was beside the computer room, I had met him there once when I went there to cry.
The room is empty. What exactly did he want to see me for.
Did he probably want to talk about the hug betwen Donald and I?
I haven’t even thanked him for saving me from being expelled.
I walked into the room and I saw him sitting on a seat that was backing me.
I walked slowly to where his chair was.
“I’m here.” I said slowly and shyly.
“I know.” He replied but didn’t turn to me.
“Thank you for saving me from being expelled.” I said.
“Where is my anky?”He asked and then turned to me.
Haky? I recollected that he gave me an hanky but I can’t remember where I placed it cause he gave me when I was crying to clean my tears.
” I can’t find it.” I retorted softly, avoiding his gaze.
“You…” Before he could say what was next, I quickly said;
“There is nothing between Donald and I.” I had thought he wanted to say something about it.
He stated faintly at me and said; “See this.”
He was stretching a sheet of paper that had something written inside to me.
I collected it and found out that it was my chemistry test result, I had scored 3 out of 20.
I was ashamed, I really don’t like physics plus I’m not as brilliant as the head boy
Did he want to embarrass me for failing?
“I didn’t know it, I’ll read better next time.” I said slowly and shyly.
He stood from the chair he sat and said; “Even if you read , you would still fail.”
Why is he cursing for me?
His presence is so domineering, I can’t believe I once slapped him.
“I can teach you.” He said to my surprise and my face lightened in shock.
I swallowed happily and said; “Thank you.”
“Thank Marie! I won’t be able to teach you in school , come to my house daily after we had close and I’ll teach you physics and other subjects.” He said.
“Thank you! can I come with Pearl?” I asked.
“Why don’t you come with all your family members?” He asked with his hand in his pocket and walked to the exit.
He paused and said; “I will be expecting you.”
He walked away.
