“Thank you” I muttered not knowing what to say, I was just having mixed feelings
“I would be going now, I’m gonna get close to you through him, expect me in your house, all I want you to know Is this, I don’t love him but you, don’t get anyway jealous with what I do to him, that’s the only way he wouldn’t know what is going on” she said and I nodded feeling relief,
At least, Austin wouldn’t hurt me again
She left the room and i slumped on the chair there..
The fear of Austin catching us one day started finding it way into my mind, I took a deep breath and stood up..
“Austin had caused me pain a lot, I don’t care breaking his heart!”
I walked back to the class and saw Austin and Clara sitting together..
Austin caught my stare and smirked..
“That riff raff must be regretting why he said those words to you!” I heard him say and I felt like laughing at him..
“I guess he must have thought I was crushing on him..” I huffed and he laughed.
“Crush on a poor thing..” He said and I hiccupped..
“What is it??.are you okay??” He asked with care and I nodded my head..
How can he call him a poor thing, someone better than him..
“But do you know why he suddenly hated me, it seem something happened yesterday” I inquired and he scratched his head.
“Maybe he had a bad day I guess” he said and I gawped at him
“What made his day bad, the both of you live in the same house, you should know what really happened to him” I said and he sighed
“We are now talking much about him, do he even worth being talked about?..let talk of something different please” he spited and I breathed
“What…” A teacher came in and I walked back to my seat .
“You can seat with me…” He said but I shook my head in disagreement..
“Thank you” I said moving to my seat, I was really feeling irritated sitting with him, he is just too proud, see how he keeps insulting Steve like a piece of dung..
I sat down and winked at Steve who smiled with his gaze straight.
The lesson went on and we were all listening except Austin who kept staring at me
I hate his stare..
Just wish I can shut that eyes..
“So I have a question to ask and the question goes to you” the teacher said and gestured at me making me cringe.
Everyone turned their gaze to me.
Ohh, I pray I knows the answer, I don’t want shame oo..
“What was the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790?” She asked and my eyes widened..
I don’t know it a bit, like seriously..
Was I born then?
I stood up there staring at the space, I can’t believe I couldn’t answer the first question asked to me,
“You don’t know it???” She asked
I squeezed my face, rack my brain but nothing was coming
“Okay, does she has a boyfriend?..he should help her out” the teacher said and everyone gazed at Austin whose face was exuding shock..
“He is her boyfriend!” They all chorused and the teacher nodded..
“Now help your bae out or else I’m gonna send her out!” She said sternly
Austin scratched his head, fluttered his eyes and looked around as if to see the answer hanging on the air..
Erm..what is your question again?” He asked trying to cover the shame,
“So you aren’t listening..I can’t repeat myself”
“I know the question and the answer so don’t bother yourself” he said giving me a reassuring smile..
“The answer is…is….” He couldn’t say anything..
“You are the class prefect right??” I sneered at him
“You are the class prefect and you can’t say the answer” the teacher blurted and he bend his head low in shame..
“Who else knows the answer?” The teacher asked and I glanced at Steve and saw him trying to raise his hand..
“Please I have something to say..” I chipped in and the teacher gazed at me with a nod
“I’d like to kiss anyone who would answer the question correctly” I said and the teacher smiled and nodded..
Every boys in the class started raising their hand but all ends up failing the question..
Just then, Steve raised his hand..
“Okay, the last man standing…what is the answer?” She asked..
“New York was the capital from 1785 to 1790” he answered and the teacher smiled
“Correct!!!!” She screamed and my heart leaped for joy..
I felt like jumping in glee but held myself so that Austin won’t suspect anything..
I walked to where Steve stood and held his hand..
Our eyes locked and i felt the chemistry, I felt the tension, for some moment I forgot we were in the class, I could only see him only..
“Thanks for saving me” I smiled and pushed my lips deep into his..
“Steve!!!” Austin called immediately not waiting for the kiss to even last for 5 second..
He broke the kiss and sat on his seat without saying a word..
I walked to Austin with a glare..
“So you couldn’t answer that question???” I sneered
“I forgot.. it isn’t that I don’t know it, it just skipped my mind..” he said squeezing his face..
“what if I say I’m someway disappointed in you..you just made me kiss him!!” I squeaked and he sighed..
“I regret it, he is the first to kiss you” he said gnashing his teeth..
“he did what earned him that, if you had answer the question, I would have kissed you so deeply..” I rolled my eyes and plopped down on his seat..
“but you shouldn’t have kissed him, like..you should have just say no.. you wouldn’t be forced..” he said glancing at Steve with anger
“I can’t go back on my words, it would make me look foolish..” I rolled my eyes and he sighed..
“I’m so sorry..” he breathed
“but you said you are the class prefect, I expect you to be very intelligent and smart, you called Steve a dumb guy but he just got that question!” I half yelled with a frown.
“so sorry..” he said and I took a deep breath and held his hands..
“I’m sure you just forgot the answer, I’m sorry for yelling at you” I said and he smiled and squeezed my hand..
“thanks for your understanding” he grinned.
“I want to kiss you” he added and I squeezed my face.
“answer a question and get the kiss” I said with a funny look making him laugh sadly gazing at my lips..
I walked to my seat and glanced at Steve again, I caught him also glancing at me..
I smiled inwardly and faced the board..
Not long after, the school bell rang for closure..
“you would join me in my car, I have to show you my house” he said with a grin holding my hand.
“where is Steve?” i asked looking around..
“he must have gone home”.
We both entered the car and drove off..
It was evening and I was fully dressed looking so gorgeous and stunning, I took my time to dress well not for Austin but Steve who i wanted to impress badly..
I was standing in the porch of Austin’s house and i was really nervous to see Steve dressed without uniform,
I’m sure he would look great..
I knocked on the door and it was opened immediately…
I looked up and it was Steve dressed on trouser alone..
His hairy chest was bare, I couldn’t help but stare at him..
His eyes were on me for long, he couldn’t remove his eyes as he was really mesmerised..
” I came for you” I whispered and he smiled and held my hand leading me in..
“You look too beautiful!” He exclaimed making me blush..
Just then, Austin walked downstairs, I quickly detached my hand from Steve’s grasp and ran into him with a tight hug..
“Oh you are here!!” He said with glee..
“Why won’t I be here, you are my boyfriend..” I chuckled and he moved his eyes all over my body..
“Jeez, so s£xy!!”
“Thanks” I replied
“I think we should go to my room, I hate his stares at us, he must be dreaming right now!” He said gesturing at Steve who had his gaze at us..
It really took me a lot to hold myself as I saw them walk to Austin room..
Oh god, I pray he didn’t touch her..
I slumped on the couch feeling drained,
I was still in thought when I heard a scream, it really sounded like that of Clara..
I quickly jolted up from the sofa and made to rush upstairs when I saw Clara running down..
“oh God!!..what happened!!!” I asked with my eyes widened as she ran to me and hugged me tightly..
“he wants to force me into s£x..” she sobbed and I felt my heart pierced..
I looked up and saw Austin walking downstairs with his face berserk..
“you wouldn’t let me touch you but you kissed him!!!!!” he growled as he walked down the stairs but just as he saw her hugging tightly, he stood transfixed in shock..
“what is going on here??” he asked and Clara went to my back and wrap her arm round my back..
“Austin are you mad!!” I gritted and he gawked at me trying to ascertain if I was really talking to him..
“are you trying me again??” he scowled and I scoffed
“I decided to keep calm didn’t mean I can’t break your head, it wouldn’t take me anything to beat you up even when you are older than me!” I sneered and he broke into laughter..
“you want to fight for a lady who doesn’t even love you???” he sneered
“I won’t allow you touch her” I said sternly and he walked closer..
“and what if I touch her??” he said and I scoffed..
“then be ready to get the beating of your life” I snarled and he got infuriated..
“if you got the gut, try stopping me..” he said and I smirked..
He rushed at Clara and made to drag her but I gave him a slap that I don’t even know when it was released..
He held his cheek and stared at me in horror..
“next would be a punch” I smirked and his whole body shook in total shock..
“what gives you the balls, you remember what happened when you….”
“don’t remember me about that because it isn’t happening again…” I snorted and held Clara’s hand..
“tell him who you love” I said to her and she flinched..
“you think you are the one??” he laughed and I gawped at his foolishness..
“I love Steve, he is my boyfriend.. you are just a fake one, I love him alone, just tricked you and you fell for it.. dumb head!!” she spited and I smirked
“he may doubt it so kiss me again” I smiled and she wrapped her hand round my neck and plunged her lips into mine making Austin shocked.
I think it’s time to be a man..
