I looked at him, I don’t know I was expecting him to say but I know whatever he say will make a difference and it got my heart pounding.
“Barbie barbie, its too early in the day to think of dinner” he said. We are already at night what is he talking about, its just his way of saying he don’t feel the same way.
“I will be going inside” I said feeling broken “I will hold my end of Tue bargain and went inside, I listen for him to call but he didn’t.
I went inside with mixed feelings, I don’t know if I should be happy he’s out or I should be sad I didn’t get I love you too.
I went to school, in the morning all eyes on me, I have only one motive to convince his friends the reason why he did what he did. I ignored the stare and waited for the delinquent to arrive cause I know they are the one that need explanation.
“And just like that, you became the most popular girl” Amina said coming beside me, I smiled
“How are you” I asked trying to ignore the popular girl talk.
“Am fine, just kept telling my parents I had no idea about Eric” she said with a sigh “how stupid we are, we never reason the fact his name is Eric and he never said his surname” she said bewildered and the delinquents arrived.
“Help me and convince the delinquents the reason why Eric did what he did” I pleaded Amina
“Truthfully, I don’t know why he did it” she said. I forget she also need convincing, I sighed, I guess she is the first, she will then help me to convince the delinquents during break. So I started telling her the whole story
“So you mean his life might still be in danger since they haven’t catch the culprit” she asked and I nodded
“Wow, he have guts, cause I will still be hiding if am him” she said, I have told her everything, just not the personal part and the fact am the one that prompt him. At least now she will help me convince the delinquents.
“So help me convince the delinquents” I said and she nodded, we departed when she got to her class, I went inside mine and Amanda eyes was on me, well I will convince them during break time.
“So that’s what he had to shoulder alone” Richie said feeling pity for Eric after am done telling them everything, its break time but non have the appetite to eat.
“One question, how come you recognised him, when even me couldn’t” Collins asked, he was Eric bestfriend before he left
“Love recognises the heart, thats how she recognized him” Amanda said, thank God she did cause I have nothing to say.
“What do you mean by that” Richie asked
“You know for a guy with high IQ you’re dumb” Amina said to the oblivious Richie, and the started they’re chitchat. We just smiled and started our normal chatting, am happy its all been resolved, I can’t wait to tell him all about it.
“You knew its Eric Junior all along so you left me for him” I heard Kevin saying, he looks mad, I feel pity for him.
“Does it matter anything to you” Amanda said barring her fangs, she never hasitate to bare her teeth
“Leave since you are not welcome” Collins said standing up, I looked and saw Kelly and his crew advancing, I remembered how it ended d the first time, since the monster is not here it might get more severe, I then decided to end it. “Leave Kevin, I never knew he was Junior, and I was never with you” I said, he gave me a death glare and walked away. Collins and the rest only stand down when they saw Kevin and Kelly gang have settle down.
“I appreciate you guys standing up for me” I said gratefully.
“You’re Eric’s woman, that makes you the Luna of this crew since Eric is considered the Alpha” Richie said and we all laughed, I feel so honoured.
I didn’t see Eric the whole day, except seeing him in the TV, he kept answering questions on where he’s been, he told them everything but never mentioned me. Even when they asked her about the girl he was with, he said ‘she just my classmate’ it kept ringing in my head, every other thing he said to me suddenly became a sweet word with no volume. I have been played.
