Shantel and Becky sat on the dinning table silently.

the

maid came and serve them thier food after which she

stun

out. Becky was Shantel best friend.

“Becky,

the issue here is not what my parents told you or how

my

depletion is affecting them. Is about someone I love.

An

innocent man they fraimed up, who will be sentence

God

knows how many years in prison. His not happy there.

he’s

always crying and there is no way I will be free nor

happy

with him in there, absolutely no way” Shantel placed

her

right hand on her forehead facing downward remembering

the

good memories she shared with Austin.

“It.really baffles me how a millionaires daughter, did

I

say millionaire? a billionaire like your dad could be doing

all this

for this guy. Do you know if he could be a good digger

for

God sake he was your driver…your serv……..”

“Just stop it” Shantel

interrupted waving her hand at her.

“Infact

leave this place” Shantel instructed.

“Awww!!!” Becky pretended not to have heard her.

“I

said leave this place right now” shantel repeated

herself.

“Shantel, are you asking me out of your house?” Becky

asked.

“Becky I said get out of this place before I stab you and

join Austin in

cell” Shantel shouted. Becky stood up.

“Ok.

I will go” she said and left.

“Shantel,you are here crying again today why?” Vicky

asked

Shantel yet no response from her. She tried wiping off

the

tears rolling down on Shantel’s cheek but it seems

to

be dropping the more. Vicky was Shantel’s school

friend.

meanwhile, they were seen seating at the back of their

school

building where lovers mostly hang around.

“I

don’t think I will ever have joy. I mean, the guy I love is

still

in the prison” Shantel replied sneezing.

“Girl. our

final exam is coming up tomorrow and you are behaving

this

way why nah?” Vicky asked again rhetorically.

“Is

of no use to me. I know my future is bright but I have

no

future without Austin” Shantel replied.

“Shantel.

I’m highly disappointed at you. fear will not help anything

at all”

“Vicky, you don’t know him”

“you have told me everything about him. A guy that

invested

so much energy and time lecturing you will not be

happy

to learn that you messed it up because he was away.

that’s

the worst way to show appreciation”

“I don’t

know what to do, I’m so confused” Shantel Replied crying.

Becky

adjusted closer to her and used her hands to wipe her

tears.

“is ok. compose yourself write your exams, that’s the

greatest

gift you can give him still in the prison. write your exams

very

well and see him after that, you owe him that you know!”
