The very first day she came into the school, I got very much attracted to her.
I loved everything about her and wanted it deeply for her to be my girlfriend but there was no way it could happen, it would be dangerous having her in my life.
I kept turning her down even when she ask me out..
It pained me that I had to snub her, I had to stay away from her..
I couldn’t accept her because I knew how dangerous it is..
I know my half brother Austin, he would make my life a hell and could probably kill me.
My name is Steve..
I was born without anyone to call a father or mother, just grew up to find my self in the orphanage home..
Life was miserable as I did not seem to cope with living there..
I needed to go out to the world and become something, I want to go out of the orphanage home and live with a family, go to school and have a happy life,
My want was accomplished but It wasn’t really what I wanted that came..
I was adopted by a very rich and wealthy family…
I would have been the happiest guy on earth if Austin wasn’t in my life..
Austin is the only son of the parent who took me, he is bad and arrogant, always ordering me on what to do..
He subjected me to become like a servant to him..
I sees him as superior and had never crossed his path knowing fully well that he could change my life in a twinkle of an eye….
Everything went well as I got used to doing his bidding, but it all changed when Clara came..
The very day she started school and introduced her self, I fell so attracted to her..
Once in my entire life, someone stole my heart, I fell in love…
I was ready to make her mine but it became dangerous when Austin also wants her in his life..
The alarm in my room made a blaring sound jolting me from my sleep,
I groaned in anger and turned off the alarm..
My head was really heavy and my eyes was bulged and bloodshot.
I still needed to sleep,
It was 5:00 and I just went to bed around 12:04…
I still needed some sleep but I can’t dare to sleep again or I would have to face Austin’s wrath,
He would punish me badly for that..
I’m just like his servant or sbould I say slave..
He hates me like mad and I can’t tell why,
Since he came back from Korea, I had been his greatest enemy, my presence alone irks him..
I don’t know why..
I had never wronged him but he keeps finding fault in all I do..
He would always intentionally hurt my feelings, he would keep pestering my life,
From the very day we met till now, he had never smiled at me..
I would have left this house if I had any other place to go..
His parent abducted me from the orphanage home,
It had been nice being with them not until Austin came, the worst of it was that, few weeks after he came down here, his parent left for a business trip leaving just the both of us..
I had to face his arrogant and baleful behavior..
He had deliberately made me stay up last night..
I don’t see any reason why he should order me to start counting money late at night..
Just like that, he gave me bundles of money and ordered me to start counting it one after the other even when he already knew how much it was..
That’s how wicked he is..
I stretched my body and yawned before stepping down from the bed..
I don’t wanna be late to school,
I’d be going on foot while he drives in his car..
He would never want me to ride on any of the fleets of car parked in the garage..
I walked to the bathroom feeling dizzy,
I was half asleep half awake, my vision was even blurry…
I managed to take my bath and quickly dressed up,
I scurried off after picking my backpack..
As i got to the sitting room, Austin was seated on the couch pressing his phone still wearing his night wear..
I sighed knowing well that this morning wouldn’t go well for me,
I thought he was still in his room so I’d just sneak away..
“I’m going to school” I said to him with a smile which attracted a glare from him..
“Ohh..wow..as a rich guy!..hmm, like you are going to school, you are going to one of the best school in town, school for the rich, you are going there..a bastard in both side!” He snorted and I bent my head feeling hurt..
Austin is just a year older than me but he had reduced me to trash that I don’t even seem to be a human in front of him..
“But your father had cleared off all my school fees, he gave me scholarship..” I tried explaining even when I knew he already knows about it..
“Do you know it is an insult to me that a guy picked from the road is just being like me..we live in the same house, attend the same school and even eat the same food..don’t you know it is intimidating me!” He grunted and I breathed.
“The difference is clear, stop all this, you are a model, everyone drools around you because you are not only rich but also cute and smoking hot..I’m not like you in any way..” I said in a low tone looking into his eyes which was always baleful..
“Do you know I want you to go back to the trash can you came from?” He spited and I cringed..
“What??” My eyes widened..
“Your luck is really annoying me, how can my billionaire parent notice you?..how could they bring you here to live with them..just look at the house you are living in..aren’t you awe!!” He asked and I forced out a smile even when I was flushing in shame..
“Yeah, I’m really lucky” I breathed and he sneered at me..
“So you are already prepared for school?” He scoffed and I nodded
“What does that shows? You are more serious in your education ugh?..like seriously, you are trying to show me you are more serious..” He glared and I arched my brow at him..
“I don’t understand..” I muttered
“You must wait for me..I’d be the first to go to school, you poor brat, don’t you have respect.. you are on scholarship and is schooling from my dad’s pocket so you have no right to go there before me, get back to your room and wait till I finally leave..” He gritted and I took a deep breath trying to contain my anger which was boiling up..
I stared at Austin with anger in my heart wishing I can hit him, he is just too annoying..
“Okay, I’ll gladly do as you said” I smiled and walked back to my room..
I glared at him as he walked back to his room,
I don’t just like that bastard like seriously..
Seeing him makes me feel anger swelling in me..
I just hate him because of his perfection,.
He is not only cute but also very intelligent,
I really envy him..
You can’t believe he is the class prefect, well I had already ordered for the position to be withdrawn from him and given to me, which would be done today..
He is such a cool guy that can really melt any one’s heart with his smile,
I just had to make life hard for him so he wouldn’t have the cause to smile,
I had been able to make him dumb in school after introducing him to the class as my servant brought by my father, He hardly talks and would always stay alone..
I finally rose from where I sat and got prepared for school,
Without telling him, I left for school leaving him waiting for me..
I drove away to school feeling happy,
I got to school and parked my car..
Immediately I stepped down from the car, many student especially the girls came out to look at me..
There is no doubt they couldn’t get over my cuteness,
Not long after I had sat down on my reserved seat with a proud smile,
Steve walked in making my countenance turn into a frown..
He walked to his seat gently without glancing at anyone,
“Here comes my servant!!” I said out and everyone burst into laughter making him bend his head in shame..
“He had been washing my shorts since morning that was why he came late” I said again and this time, they did not only laugh but also drew him up from where he sat..
“What is it??” He growled
“Is it true?”
“What he said, is it true?” They asked him and he glanced at me.
I gave him a cold stare and he turned to them with a deep sigh..
“Can you guys let me be!!” He gritted and they all left..
I guess they are still respecting him as a class prefect not knowing it ends today..
Not long after, the form teacher walked into the class,
“I just came to announce to you all that we now have a new class prefect..” She said and everyone gazed at Steve who was shocked with what he heard..
“Oh yes, another person has been appointed, we can’t have a student on scholarship as the leader of this class of is degrading!” She continued and I smiled with a raised shoulder waiting for my name to be called..
“Can I say something?” Steve said immediately raising his hand up,
I gawped at him as he stood up..
“I need to make a correction, I am not here in scholarship, I live with Brenda’s family.. I’m their son and Austin here is my half brother”
“God forbid!!” I squealed immediately and jolted up..
I rushed at him and slapped him hardly..
“Don’t dare to say that again you wretched brat!!..Do I look like your brother in any way???” I growled..
He stared at me for some time before rushing away from the class,
I could see tears fall off from his eyes..
