Chapter 26






















Ella looked at Jeff without saying a word, she found her voice lost that she can’t tell Jeff what she wanted to say. Her beat increased not for any reason but for the fear that it will be so childish for her a lady to tell a guy how she feels about him.


“I’m sorry Jeff “she apologized looking while Jeff knew something is wrong



“Was that what you wanted to say “? Jeff asked looking deeply into her eyes


“Yes “she lied looking away but Jeff was so fast to know it as she called her name.


Silence took over again as Jeff stopped teaching and looked at Ella in a loving and pleading eyes.


“Can I tell you something “? He asked as Ella nodded her head in a yes gesture while Jeff swallowed hard for the feelings he had been hiding for so long now it’s time to let Ella know he has been feeling for her.


“I love you Ella ” Jeff said holding Ella’s palm caressing it carefully as she found it hard to believe just then the door cracked open and Mr Lanz walked in and Jeff immediately switched over to his teachings.




Richard sat in the house thinking critically since he has decided to make a move by inviting Mirabel to a private and cool place where they can talk without any distraction ,his fear was that if Mirabel will show up but Gentle his main man assured him.




Mirabel on the other find it difficult to concentrate on her books she was trying to read just then she recalled that Richard invited her over which she kicked against it but her instincts kept disturbing her as if Richard is her guardian angel.


“Send me the address now ” Mirabel said on phone praying it will lead her to a safe ground while Richard smiled widely like a man who had lost his senses, immediately without time wastage he send the message across to her and also to Gentle telling him of the latest news on ground that Mirabel will show up.




“It looks like Eric is no longer having anything to do with Ella again ” Rachel said as Josephine looked up



“How sure are you “? She asked while Racheal smiled


“It’s true sha due to the shame and everything ” Nelson said walking out from the room well dressed in his sport clothes, it’s obvious they are about going for sports so as to prepare themselves for the competition.


“I’m not sure I will come today I’m feeling weak ” Josephine complained while Nelson walked to Rachel and kisses her passionately on the lips while Josephine narrowed her brows at them.


“You better do that in the room not here “Josephine said and hissed as Nelson and Rachel moved to the field while she followed from behind.




Richard located a cool corner and sat down while cool blues was playing on the background, Gentle his left hand man didn’t leave him from behind he always stands by him to see him through.


He glanced at his wristwatch looking dull and weak


“Calm down dude she will be here soon ” Gentle said smiling as Richard smiled too a bit.


He was dressed in a long sleeve Blue shirt with blue Jean trouser too which made him look cool.


Soon they saw Mirabel coming in from the front door looking more cute than ever, that made Richard drilled.


She was lost as Gentle stood up walking to her taking her to where Richard waited patiently for them.





Jeffery was done Witt the lesson of the day as Ella walked him to the gate as usual, they didn’t exchanged words. Ella’s heart was beating so fast as Jeff stopped immediately they crossed the gate to the road. Jeff stopped looking directly into her eyes as she looked back seeing what Eric threw away because of a common mistake.


“Jeff….Ella ” the both of them called at once as Ella gesture him to continue.


I’ve been so disturbed seeing my heart being taken away and I stood and watched without doing anything” Jeff said in parebles and Ella was lost


“I’m confusing ” she said as Jeff smiled


“All I’m saying is that you have taken my sense and my heart away to an unknown destination which jm not requesting for you to return it but all am saying is for you to keep it safe for me, and allow me have yours too ” Jeff finally said and Ella found herself lost. She felt her heart beating for joy.


Her dream was coming true because that’s what she has been praying for, Jeff watched her smiling but pretended as if not nothing.


“I’m not understanding you, I’m losting somewhere ” she said as Jeff smiled


“Please Ella Lanz will you be the queen of my heart “? Jeff asked just then the gate was opened and Ella was ordered inside by one of the guard telling her it’s his father that wants her presence.

“How are you preparing for the competition “? Richard asked


“I won’t compete ” she replied

“We spent a lot of time building our relationship and now it’s because of a girl issues you are trying to messed up ” Jeff said boldly as Eric looked up knowing that what Jeff is saying is true not because of a lady that they separate but need to stay strong and see others following their footsteps.
