ELVIN’S

 

POINT OF VIEW

 

After all that happened yesterday.

 

I really have a whole lot in my mind..

 

Tomorrow came very fast having in mind that will be teaching Stephannie today is making me so worked up, I don’t really know I feels right now after watching her yesterday…..”

 

I woke up the next day and waited outside but she didn’t show up. I don’t even know if she is gonna come to school today.

 

I really feel her pain but the truth remains that I can’t grow the feeling I have for her, I can’t imagine myself having anything to do with love.

 

I just can’t.

 

I got to school that very day and she was also in school but she looks so downcast.

 

their was no much activity in school and I spent my day in a secret place where even Flora wasn’t able to find me.

 

After school our new driver and body came to pick us up by name Joe and Lextar.

 

We drove to a well built Mansion and we walked in and everything was nearly kept clean… I just did some walk around and then when it was time for me to go to the castle to have a lesson with her my mind still drive to what happened yesterday.

 

I just want to forget everything about her and focus on my education…. Well it gonna take some time

 

because I have to take her on the lesson for another one week to be sure that she us good to be taken by Miss Harrietta.

 

I know this is not gonna be easy but I have to do this for Kester’s sake…

 

For Kester ??? … Really…” My conscious asked.

 

Yeah

 

If I had known I should have allowed Mr. Barlon to call of the deal but I don’t know why I objected to that even though it was that same day and at that same hour she said those hurtful words to me….. I

 

still feel like the pains am passing is not way close to what is passing through….”

 

That’s because you have something for her…

 

You feels her pain….” My conscious said.

 

Never…

 

But what could this feeling be ???

 

Hope is not what am thinking because this warned me never to get involve in it and I wouldn’t even want to be acting stupid…..”

 

” But you are already stick in it..

 

You love her and no matter how hard you try to avoid her you can still not fight the feels you have.. Just accept the fact that you love her and allow your feelings lead you….” My conscious mind said.

 

 

 

No I won’t because am just taking pity on her I don’t have any feelings for her So there will be no need……”

 

I said.

 

 

Even if you lie to anyone not me because am you and what I see is what happens.. can’t you see she us changing for you..

 

She is no longer harsh and angry

 

She constantly smiles for you…. ”

 

My conscious mind said and I just put on my headphone and put the volume very high.

 

My head cooled a little bit and I put on something simple took my books and my laptop.

 

Walking down I meet victor chatting with one of our female bodyguard.

 

” What’s up Elvin

 

Where are you off to???? ……”

 

He asked.

 

” To the castle of course

 

I will be having classes with Stephannie today didn’t I tell you???…..”

 

Yeah you did mention that’s but you didn’t tell me the time…..

 

Just wait for me let me change and join you…” He said.

 

”Join me???… why changing again ”

 

I asked…

 

What happens to what you are wearing

 

I added.

 

” Nothing but I just what to change them…”

 

He said and run upstairs while I hiss and walked to the car

 

 

Well he didn’t take long for him to change..

 

he got into the car and we zoom off to the Castle



 

 

.

 

 

Getting there Stephannie were no where to be found…. is she not gonna study today I asked myself but

 

just then Tessia walked into the study room and informed me that Stephannie instructed her to bring me to her room.

 

” Her room ??????

 

What are we gonna be doing in her room…”

 

I asked.

 

She will be in a better position to answer just follow me ….” she said and lead the way will I followed her.

 

We walked into the main building and into Stephannie’s room… She bowed for her and walked away….

 

 

Wow

 

I said as I look around the massive and beautiful room of hers..

 

they are even more big than that if kester’s resident,

 

Their were a staircase inside the room the room seem to be a complete house side the building

 

What’s the wow for…..” She asked.

 

Your room looks good…..”

 

I said and she smiled at me and stood up from the bed she was laying… she was just putting a single and a short her hair were well packed… she really looks are beautiful and more tempting.

 

” Thanks….”

 

She said.

 

” Why invite me into your room??

 

we are not supposed to be having lesson now???……”

 

I said and she smiled.

 

” Not really Elvin….

 

It just that here lead to out new study…” room……”

 

She said.

 

Just follow me

 

She added and she started walking up to a stairway that’s inside there room and I followed behind like she asked me to..

 

We walked up to a passage shows an image of a massive glass door at the ending of the passage.

 

She got their input a pin that I didn’t even look at her while she was touching it and the door open and I found my self in a huge and massive laboratory.

 

Everywhere were shinning and so classic

 

here is even more big and classic than that if the institution own..

 

” Here we are.. this is my personal laboratory

 

I does all my practical and experiment here, So we will be studying here from now on……”

 

She said and I couldn’t say anything

 

I was just looking around every corner of the laboratory.

 

Here is so huge…” I said.

 

 

Yeah, all we need is here…..” She said.

 

Come on we have no time

 

You can do the eyes surveying after the lesson…..”

 

She said and walk over to a table and I followed her.

 

I was backing my bag so I put it out and I took out my laptop place it on the table and I loved into my website and the lesson began.

 

Well I told you earlier we are gonna discuss about the BRAIN and we are as well going to have practical of how it looks and we will operate on any animal of your choice….”

 

I said look at her and she was fully focused.

 

A brain is an organ that serves as the center of the nervous system in all vertebrate and most invertebrate animals. It is located in the head, usually close to the sensory organs for senses such as vision.

 

It is the most complex organ in a vertebrate’s body. In a human, the cerebral cortex contains approximately 14–16 billion neurons, and the estimated number of neurons in the cerebellum is 55–70 billion.

 

Each neuron is connected by synapses to several thousand other neurons. These neurons communicate with one another by means of long protoplasmic fibers called axons, which carry trains of signal pulses called action potentials to distant parts of the brain or body targeting specific recipient cells.

 

I explained and look at her to know if she is paying attention and Wow.. She is focused in what I was saying this is unlike Stephannie I use to know of…

 

I mean were is the arrogant and angry Stephannie that I use to know .. She has really changed.

 

I said myself…

 

What’s the problem why did you stop…

 

Continue am enjoying what you are teaching.. Unno, knowing about the brain and how it functions is really good…”

 

She said looking directly into my eyes.

 

So tell me more .. How does the brain works She asks????

 

Well In order for your brain to think, you need nerve cells that can detect information about the outside world and can transmit that information to other nerve cells. It’s the transmission of information, the cells talking to each other, that’s the fundamental physical basis for how thinking works.

 

 

The human brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives signals from the body’s sensory organs and outputs information to the muscles….”

 

I said and I stood up and walk closer to a electric board and used my hand to zoom out the image of the BRAIN…. this is the nervous system I said pointing at the projectile for her to see what am saying….

 

Now let take a look at what and how the brain of this rabbit looks like..

 

I said and I put on my hand grove and medicated eyeglasses. and she put hers on.

 

I used a knife and opened the rabbit brain box and I put rabbit on a microscope…. pointing the system

 

pointer to the brain box and the brain appeared on the projectile.

 

Now what how the reaction will be appearing on the system

 

I said to her and I touch the rabbit and the reaction was showing for her to understand more.

 

This is just the practice of what am trying to explain….”

 

I said to her.

 

The HYMAN BRAIN has the same basic structure as other mammal brains but is larger in relation to body size than any other brains.

 

Further more…. Your brain has many different parts that work together. We’re going to talk about these

 

five parts, which are key players on the brain team:

 

*(1)Cerebrum

 

*(2)Cerebellum

 

*(3)Brain Stem

 

*(4)Pituitary

 

*(5)Hypothalamus

 

The Biggest Part: The Cerebrum

 

I called out their name while I did the pointing for her on at the electric bill board for her to see them on the projected imagine.

 

Going more details about this five part of the BRAIN

 

The biggest part of the brain is the cerebrum. The cerebrum is the thinking part of the human brain and it controls your voluntary muscles — the ones that move when you want them to. So you need your cerebrum to dance or kick a soccer ball.

 

 

The cerebrum has two halves, with one on either side of the head. according to the Scientists.. they thinks that the right half helps you think about abstract things like music, colors, and shapes. The left half is said to be more analytical, helping you with math, logic, and speech. Scientists do know for sure that the right half of the cerebrum controls the left side of your body, and the left half controls the right side.

 

Next up is the cerebellum.

 

The cerebellum is at the back of the brain, below the cerebrum. It’s a lot smaller than the cerebrum. But it’s a very important part of the brain. It controls balance, movement, and coordination I said and pointed at what I was saying.

 

I look at her again to and she was just staring at me…

 

Am listening….”

 

She said still not removing her eyes on me but I still turned back to the electric bill board and continue.

 

With your cerebellum, you can stand upright, keep your balance, and move around.

 

” Now tell me…

 

Think about a surfer riding the waves on his board. What does he need most to stay balanced????……”

 

I asked looking at her for an answer.

 

” Well I think he needs,

 

His cerebellum because just like you said the cerebellum help to make you keep balance and move around….”

 

She answered correctly.

 

That’s so smart …..” I said and she smiled.

 

Thanks ……”

 

She said and I smiled back and then turn back to the electric bill board and continue.

 

The work of the Brain Stem is to Keep you Breathing

 

This is another mighty brain part that’s small. The brain stem sits beneath the cerebrum and in front of the cerebellum. It connects the rest of the brain to the spinal cord, which runs down your neck and back.

 

The brain stem is in charge of all the functions your body needs to stay alive, like breathing air, digesting food, and circulating blood.

 

Wow ! Wow !! Wow !!!…

 

That’s so much for one head….” She said.

 

” Oh really???

 

I asked her and she nod.

 

Are you lost….” I asked her…

 

Not really but what is the function of the Brain Stem ??? ……” She asked.

 

Well Part of the brain stem’s job is to control your involuntary muscles — the ones that work automatically, without you even thinking about it. There are involuntary muscles in the heart and stomach, and it’s the brain stem that tells your heart to pump more blood when you’re biking or your stomach to start digesting your lunch.

 

The brain stem also sorts through the millions of messages that the brain and the rest of the body send back and forth. Whew! It’s a big job being the brain’s secretary!

 

I concluded look at her and I zoom the fourth one which is the pituitary gland.

 

the pituitary gland is very small — only about the size of a pea! Its job is to produce and release hormones into your body. If your clothes from last year are too small, it’s because your pituitary gland released special hormones that made you grow. This gland is a big player in puberty too. This is the time when boys’ and girls’ bodies go through major changes as they slowly become men and women, all thanks to hormones released by the pituitary gland.

 

This little gland also plays a role with lots of other hormones, like ones that control the amount of sugars and water in your body.

 

Well when we talk about the Hypothalamus Controls Temperature

 

The hypothalamus is like your brain’s inner thermostat (that little box on the wall that controls the heat in your house)…..”

 

I said click on the image and I zoom it more to point at what am saying.

 

This brain part knows what temperature your body should.

 

If your body is too hot, the hypothalamus tells it to sweat. If you’re too cold, the hypothalamus gets you shivering.

 

Both shivering and sweating are attempts to get your body’s temperature back where it needs to be……”

 

I concluded.

 

Does this mean that the brain can function on it’s own without needing the help of any other human system…….”

 

She asked.

 

 

Not really though the brain is boss but it can’t do it alone. It needs some nerves, actually a lot of them. And it needs the spinal cord, which is a long bundle of nerves inside your spinal column, the vertebrae that protect it.

 

It’s the spinal cord and nerves ” known as the nervous system ” that let messages flow back and forth between the brain and body.

 

If a spiky cactus falls off a shelf headed right for your best friend, your nerves and brain communicate so that you jump up and yell for your friend to get out of the way. If you’re really good, maybe you’re able to catch the plant before it hits your friend!

 

The nervous system is made up of millions and millions of neurons which are microscopic cells. Each neuron has tiny branches coming off it that let it connect to many other neurons.

 

When you learn things, the messages travel from one neuron to another, over and over. Eventually, the brain starts to create connections (or pathways) between the neurons, so things become easier and you can do them better and better.

 

Think back to the first time you rode a bike. Your brain had to think about pedaling, staying balanced, steering with the handlebars, watching the road, and maybe even hitting the brakes, all at once. Hard work, right? But eventually, as you got more practice, the neurons sent messages back and forth until a pathway was created in your brain. Now you can ride your bike without thinking about it because the neurons have successfully created a “bike riding” pathway in your mind…..”

 

Do brain has anything to do with our feeling.. I mean when it comes to emotions or something related to that????…..”

 

She asked.

 

Very well… see the brain also have the full control of your Emotion… What do I mean by that

 

With all the other things the brain does, is it any surprise that the brain runs your emotions? Maybe you had fun on your birthday and you were really happy. Or your friend is sick and you feel sad. Or your little brother messed up your room, so you’re really angry! Where do those feelings come from? Your brain, of course……”

 

I said looking at her and she was fully concentrating and I continued

 

Your brain has a little bunch of cells on each side called the amygdala. The word amygdala is Latin for almond, and that’s what this area looks like. Scientists believe that the amygdala is responsible for emotion. It’s normal to feel all different kinds of emotions, good and bad. Sometimes you might feel a little sad, and other times you might feel scared, or silly, or glad…..” I said and took out a deep breath.

 

Look at my time and it am already forty-eight minutes pass the normal time.

 

 

” Oh gosh..

 

I thing we will have to continue tomorrow is already late and I needs to go….”

 

I said and her mood changed.

 

But you can sleepover, and to to school from here …..” She said and I smiled.

 

Off course I know but there are some unfinished business I have I needs to get them done before tomorrow …”

 

I said and she just nod.

 

Okay…”

 

She said.

 

I pick up my laptop put them on the bag, back it and walk away while she followed me from behind.

 

So what happens to the questions I was gonna ask…..” She asked.

 

Well pen them down I will answer them tomorrow…” I said and she smiled.

 

I got down and Victor and Kester were already waiting….I walk up to them and still behind me were Stephannie….”

 

Is she planning coming with us Huh!!???

 

Don’t you think it already late for you guys to get going????

 

We heard someone’s voice from behind only to turn and see it Stephannie.

 

Don’t worry we are gonna be fine….” I said.

 

We needs to get going…..”

 

Victor said entered into the car and I turned at Stephannie and she smiled

 

” Bye ……”

 

Take care of yourself and Victor drive safe…” She said

 

Okay Ma ….”

 

Victor said and start the car and woom

 

we are out of the Castle.

 

 

KESTER’S

 

 

POINT OF VIEW

 

Wow ! Wow !! Wow !!!

 

This is unbelievable

 

I was shocked hearing that form my own sister Stephannie.

 

She left for her room immediately they drive out from the castle and u went upstairs as well.

 

This is surprising

 

Elvin is the only one she had showed care for the past four years now.

 

” Wow ! Wow !! Wow !!!……”

 

Elvin was so right. Him leaving the castle has done a lot of changes in Stephannie’s behaviors.

 

 

Am so happy now finally the two head will finally fall in love I said to myself and I smiled.



with each other.

 

 

” What’s the happiness all about????

 

I heard Stephannie’s voice asking and she sat down on my cushion.

 

I thought I asked something????

 

She draw my attention.

 

 

Well you are the cause of the excitement …..”

 

How possible is that???

 

What did I do that caused the excitement??? ……”

 

She asked again

 

Can you remember the last time you told me that it already late for me to go out in the night???

 

And what are you driving at???…” She asked back.

 

Am not driving at anything Stephannie, you just told Elvin to drive save….” I said.

 

Are you kind of jealous or something?? She asked.

 

Not really Just think why you had to even sent Tessia and Stella to watch over them till then get Home……”

 

That’s a lie Kester

 

Who told you I sent my guard to escort them home???? ……”

 

She asked..

 

The same person that told me password to your room did…..” I said and she rolled her eyes

 

Come on Kester don’t give your mind space to dirty thinking, Elvin is my teacher, am just making sure he is safe……”

 

She said

 

I guess he also watch over you at nights????……”

 

Stop !!! Kester

 

You are making me regret coming her in the first place……”

 

She said.

 

You don’t have to but you know that am saying the truth just that you don’t want to admit to it…..”

 

” Will you stop or I walk out of here.

 

Is either you change the topic bow or I will leave and will never come back again…..”

 

She threatened and I just smiled.

 

Okay fine I will change the topic….” I said.

 

So why are you here…..”

 

I asked.

 

So I can’t come and say hey to my brother again…..” She said and I smiled again..

 

Oh!!!

 

That’s wonderful just remembering the last time you visited

 

Anyway am happy you came over today….”

 

Well just want to say thank you.. She said.

 

For what???

 

For everything.

 

I gat to sleep I had a long day at school

 

She said stood up and walk away.

 

 

Goodnight Sweetheart

 

 

Sleep tight ….”

 

” You too…”

 

She said and shut the door.

 

Wow !!!

 

Nobody needs to tell me that their is love hovering around the air.

 

I can tell that Stephannie is nursing feelings for Elvin.

 

That’s a good thing anyway.

 

I said to myself and smiled.

 

ELVIN’S

 

POINT OF VIEW

 

What’s that all about

 

Victor asked immediately we drove into our Manson.

 

Look Victor you needs to be very careful whenever you are driving, didn’t you notice a car was ruding behind us….”

 

I asked and he looked surprised.

 

But Lextar should have noticed that

 

He said.

 

” And how do you expect him to when you are the one driving.

 

Look the only way he would have noticed is if he was the one driving but he were sitting at the back….”

 

Victor you needs to be very careful with your life whenever you are driving.

 

Always watch you aside mirror for security reasons…” I said and he smiled.

 

Thanks bro

 

But who do you think those guys are ???…”

 

He asked.

 

They aren’t guys they are she and Tessia and Stella in particular I said knowing what his next question would be.

 

Tessia!! Why are they following us

 

” How would I know

 

I guess kester asked them to escort us home just for our safety…..”

 

I said.

 

 

” Kester !!! Of course you no that’s a lie

 

They are Stephannie’s personal bodyguard so they are been sent by Stephannie instead……”

 

He said .

 

” That’s your own cup of tea

 

I have no business with who sent them

 

We are back home save……”

 

I said and I walked up to my room while he followed me behind.

 

I know something is going on between the two of you, she warned I drive safe and then she still sent her guard to watch over you, Elvin this girl has started loving you …..”

 

He said.

 

And how is that any of my business

 

Look Victor we are not even sure that Stephannie sent them, those girl are crazy about me and they can do this on their own will so leave her out if it ….”

 

But you have feelings for her right ???…” He asked.

 

That’s my personal life and I don’t discuss it with even my conscious…..” I said not looking at him.

 

Even if you don’t tell me I know you have something stronger than what you can even think of fighting, for her so kill the pretence…..”

 

He said.

 

Keep thinking

 

I said and walk faster.

 

” He is right Elvin

 

You can’t win even if you fight it……”

 

My conscious said.

 

I walked into my room and I sat down on the bed and all the day event stared flowing through my mind.

 

If she has something for me why then did she asked me to stay far away from her Why?????……”

 

I asked myself.

 

Off course she is trying to fight her feelings for you just like you want to kill what you have for her but don’t worry

 

She can’t kill it that’s why she had no option than to give up fighting.

 

 

She asked you to stay save and warned Victor to drive safe

 

She loves you and she can no longer fight it …..”

 

My conscious said.
