“Hi You didn’t tell us you were coming, Daniel said opening up for her.

“I didn’t plan to but I just decided to, thanks for your help, Jenny replied stretching the bag to him.
“Aren’t You coming in? Daniel asked.

“Nope, I have to hurry up to somewhere now, Jenny said.
“That quick? Theodore asked coming out to meet them.

“Ermm yes, Jenny replied and Theodore suddenly screamed and ran in.
Daniel confusedly ran in to find out what the problem is which Jennifer joined him too only to see Theodore on the floor laughing.

“When last did You go for check up Theodore? Daniel angrily asked.
“What’s wrong with him? Jenny asked scared.

“I knew you were lying so I had to come up with something to make you come in, Theodore replied still laughing and Daniel hissed.
“He’s always mad this way, we need to order for his medicine soon, Daniel said going to close the door.

“Like seriously Theodore you did that on purpose? Jenny asked still trying to get herself back.
“Yea in this house, Daniel made everyone mad. He taught me that trick, Theo replied.

“fvck you! Daniel shouted and left for his room.
“But that was too serious and you laughing this hard makes it more amazing to me, Jenny said and slowly sat down.

“Why did you refuse to come in? Theodore asked putting on his serious look.
“Nothing, I don’t just go to people houses, She replied and he nodded.


The coordinator of the model stuff met me today, he said the lecturers wants you to contest because there will be a cross contest between schools and they are hoping You will make the school proud, Theo said.
“How is that possible and how are they sure about that? Natasha is capable isn’t she? Jennifer asked.

“To them she isn’t sound academically, she’s only good in the fashion aspect, Theo replied.
“Then good for them because I am not interested, Jenny replied.

“Can you give me one reason why you’re strongly against it? Theo asked.
“No reason, I don’t just want it, Jenny replied.

“Jennifer, is there anything you’re not telling me? Theodore asked.
“Theodore I need to go now, Jenny said getting up to go.

“Am I really your friend Jennifer? Theodore asked and she stopped.
“Why that question? Jenny replied.

“Because you’re hiding something from me, and I don’t seem to understand why you can’t say it to me if truly i am your friend. But its fine and sorry for bringing this up again, I’ll go open the door for you, Theodore said and left to the door opening it for her while she slowly stepped out confused and left.

“You can see that for yourself, Theo replied.

“But why? I don’t really understand what’s she’s really hiding that is making her behave that way or not to trust us, Daniel said worried.
“I won’t ask her about it again. Let her go ahead and hide it but one thing for sure is I don’t trust her and nothing serious can happen between us, Theo said gulping down water while Daniel looked at him weak…………..

Jennifer got home and noticed her friends were not at home, she fell on the bed crying her eyes out as what happened months ago replayed to her face.
‘Am I just scared this is going to happen to me again because I don’t think I can survive it if it does, Jennifer said in her heart closing her eyes tight.

Her phone began to ring and it was her mom calling,
“hello mom, she picked up.

“What happened wasn’t really a good one. You messed up big time yes, but you can correct it, what do you think? Her mom asked.

“You think I can go for it? Jenny asked.
“Yes dear, but just be careful to avoid such a history. Don’t be scared dear, you can do this, her mom replied and Jenny sniffed feeling a bit relieved hearing that.

“What you’re hiding! Treasure shouted back.

“So you’ll do what huh? OK fine I love him, I don’t know if he feels the same way for me but I don’t care as long as we are cool this way. Are you okay now? Excuse me, Jenny said and went inside passing Annabel who was confused.

“So what next now? Jenny asked Theodore.

“Oh yea, some of the contestants were screened off and we are just left with 2 males and 2 females now to contest, Theodore replied..
“What! That quick? Jenny asked.

“They have never been this fast, but they are running out of time anyway and they need no too much protocols, Theo replied.
“So I guess I was screened out too right? Jenny asked.

“You wish. You are against Natasha and Damian is against me, tough ones right? Theo asked.
“What are we going to contest for then? Jenny asked.

“The portal will be open tomorrow for the students to start voting who they want, the highest votes stands a better chance while the lecturers and school authority makes the final decision, He replied
“Ouchhhh, I barely know the students, who’s gonna vote now? Jenny asked and he smiled.

“You have our department support for sure and don’t worry too much okay. Let’s go out, Theodore said.
“To where? She asked.

“Common lets go questioner, Theo replied holding her hands to the car.
“Hope the place gonna be good, Jenny said and he opened the door for her and drove off…………………

He took her to a boutique and she looked at him surprised,
“OK sir why are we here? She asked.
“OK ma’am, we need this clothes for our studio shoots, answered? Theo replied and she smiled.

“I almost forgot about that, she said.
“Good one there, now let’s see what they got, Theo said taking off the seat belts.

“But am not with cash here, Jenny said.
“Are you kidding me? Common let’s go, Theo said and she happily left the car.

A lot of designer clothes and shoes were bought and Jennifer hair was styled which gave her a more glamorous look.
Theodore couldn’t help but steal glances at her, and when Jennifer turns smiling at him asking how she looks on the Dress, he’s always speechless.

“Will this do? Theo asked seeing the clothes packed in a bag.
“Yea please its okay. This jacket will look so good on you, what do you think? Jenny asked placing the jacket on his body and he slowly held her hand.

“You’re beautiful, he whispered looking at her which she only smiled not knowing what to say……………………

“Hello, Natasha said meeting with a young guy who Lydia arranged for her.
“Yea welcome, he replied.

“Thank you, I hope by now you know why you’re here? Natasha asked.
“Why are you doing this? He asked.

“Common you don’t need to ask that. I need the video of her, Natasha said.
“I don’t have it anymore, I mean why should i still keep that? He asked.

“What made you made the video then if you can’t keep it? Natasha asked and he rubbed his head.
“I was paid okay, I was only doing my job, he replied.

“And you need the money for your mom treatment, I can give you double, Natasha said and he scoffed.
“I can’t do any video with her anymore, he replied.

“But you can get the previous video. Am not satisfied with the nudes and i understand the video was not posted in her previous school yet she was that dealt with. I need the video and you have to do everything possible to get it and the money will be paid immediately, Natasha said and he weakly rubbed his head looking at her.

“What has she ever done to you girls? Before it was Perpetual who pursued her tooth and nails and ended everything about her just for a guy, now what’s your reason for doing this? He asked.
“Its not for you to know, just do your job and drop the sympathy cause it won’t pay your bills. And be fast about it, the ceremony is just by the corner, make it memorial again okay, Natasha replied smiling at him.

“Be a good guy, Lydia said touching his cheeks and left with Natasha………………..

“What are you looking at? Theodor asked him..

“Just enjoying the way you’re exercising, Daniel replied and sat down.
“I can’t hold this anymore Daniel, am loosing it, Theo said.

“What are you talking about? Daniel asked.
“Stop pretending like you don’t know, its Jennifer, everyday with her am consumed with her love and I don’t know what to do, Theodore replied.

“Then tell her how you feel, it won’t be difficult because she feels same. I hope you’re not waiting for her to make the first move? Daniel asked.
“No its just that……… Oh God i wasn’t expecting I’ll fall in love with her this much, Theodore said.

“I see pride talking, yea i can remember you bragging how you’ll never fall for her and i know that’s what is keeping you from approaching her. swallow it bro, that was in the past, Daniel said.
“Fine, am not proud okay so stop saying what you don’t know. I’ll surely tell her how i feel and that will be soon, very soon, Theodor replied.

“Perfect time, Theodore replied and they laughed together.
