The three boys move closer to the crowd
“ excuse us , the boss is here “ Thomas said and patted way for Jude
Jude stepped amidst the crowd like a boss and observe carefully what made all of them gathered
“ what is happening here “ Jude asked turning his head around amidst the crowd
“ I came to dispose a blunt pencil inside the liter bin here some minutes ago and I found a letter there , I first wanted to ignore but I decided to check to see what was written on it , I opened it and I was shocked when I read what was written inside” a student said and handed over the letter to Jude
Jude read the letter , It was the letter that Mary wrote to owen , After Owen had thrown iit inside the liter bin and walked away , Mary did not bother taking it , she simply walked away.
Jude arched his eye brow when he was reading the letter
“ Mary can not write this , someone is framing Mary up “ He said and moved towards the guy that saw the letter and pulled the crowd around
Jude held him roughly in his collar
“ tell me , huh? Young boy , why did you want to frame up evil against Mary ?” Jude said
“ I’m not … I ain’t… doing that , I sincerely found the letter there “ the junior student said with an expression of fear on his face
“ I’m gonna have to teach you a lesson “ Jude said
“ Jude !” a sweet voice called from behind
Jude gently looked back to discover the gentle and sweet voice calling him from behind. It was Mary
Mary and her three friends had received their first lecture , they also heard the rumours in their class that one Mary wrote a letter to Owen and it was discovered by a junior student.
Mary and her two friends rushed curiously to where they were told by the carrier of rumour that the crowds were
Mary walked a bit faster and find her way amidst the crowd of student surrounding the liter bin
Mary was surprised to see Jude bullying a junior student
Jude saw Mary and quickly disengaged his hand on the boy’s collar , the boy exhaled deeply
“ Mary !” Jude called almost silently , he was surprised that he could hear his name being called in the mouth of the girl he had always dreamt of having as his love
“ what is happening here “ Mary asked . Her heart was beating , she was praying it shouldn’t be what she saw thinking , she remembered that Owen had thrown the letter she wrote to him in this same liter bin
“ Mary , can you imagine ! this junior student is trying to frame up something against you ,he said he found a letter in the liter bin and that you were the one that wrote it to Owen “ Jude said confidently
Mary’s heart skipped and beat faster
She stretched her hand and collected the letter from Jude , she saw it and read it , it was the same letter she wrote to Owen
She raised her head and she saw crowds of students waiting to hear her say something about the letter so they can know if the junior boy is lying or not
“ Jude , let the junior boy leave?” Mary said with tears forming on her eyes
“ Oh no! I know the letter is not true , I must teach this b***h a lesson” Jude said and moved closer to the junior boy roughly like he would devour him immediately
Mary knew that Jude will not take it easy with the junior boy .
She can never allow an innocent junior boy suffer just because she is trying to protect her integrity
“ It’s true “ Mary said out loud
Jude who had moved closer to the junior boy and backed Mary turned his face to see if he heard well and if the voice was that of Mary.
He looked at Mary’s face with an incredible expression hoping that it wasn’t Mary who spoke
“ yeah , it is true , I wrote the letter to Owen but he dispose it to the liter bin “ Mary said and lowered her head
“ Mary , don’t feel sad “ he said and moved closer to Mary
“ Mary , I’m angry to the guy that you wrote this letter to , you mean the guy threw the letter you wrote to him inside the liter bin, Mary , I’ll deal with that Owen of a guy for you , why will he treat a beautiful girl like you with contempt ?” Jude said and face his friend
“ where is that Owen of a guy?” Jude said angrily
“ he is right here “ a student amidst the crowd answered and they patted way , they all saw Owen standing not too far from them.
He was also observing wat was happening and what had made crowd surrounded where he threw the letter that Mary wrote to him some minutes ago
He suddenly noticed that all eyes were on him , he was shocked , his heart was beating fast ,he did not know what to think
“ why are they all staring at me ?” Owen thought
He noticed a student coming towards him
“what is he coming for ? Zeus , you know I can not speak , please do not betray me here, help me ,I need your help, if everyone knows that I can not speak , they will call me dumb and I will loose my respect in this school “ Owen prayed to Zeus his god in fear
“ hey , you, who did you think you are?” Jude asked as he got closer to where Owen was.
Owen smirked and parted his lips gently like he wanted to speak
“ are you mocking me or what ?, I will rough handle you , why will a beautiful girl write you a letter and you will throw it inside the liter bin , huh ?” Jude asked
Owen gasped and stood akimbo , his body expression was revealing that he was bold but inside of him , he was very afraid
“ tell me “ Jude said and moved closer to Owen
“ please leave him “ Mary pleaded from behind.
She walked towards Owen
“ this shouldn’t be , he is not even speaking , he is proud “ Jude said
Mary remained silent for few seconds and spoke
“ the fault is all on me “ Mary said and tears rushed down her face
“ you made an innocent girl cry “ Jude said and pretended as if he would slap Owen
Owen was greatly shocked and closed his eyes , he had never being that shocked before , he fell and lost consciousness.
“ what !” someone in the crowd exclaimed
“ I didn’t slap him “ Jude said defensively
“ call the ambulance “ Mary yelled
in few minutes, the ambulance came to pick Owen
The crowds dispersed and the rumour of what happened spread the more
Mary picked up her phone and called her dad, she explained to her dad the tragic incident that happened . her dad told Mary to go the hospital Owen was carried to and that he would meet her there
Mary took permission from the school authority and went to the hospital.
Owen became conscious all of a sudden in the hospital , he recalled what happened in the school and thanked Zeus in his heart for making him faint , he is happy that his prayer was answered . he believed that Zeus had made him fainted so he can escape the predicament that is about to befall him from Jude and the crowd of students
A young doctor entered , his hair was curly and his skin was red
Owen watched as the man entered, his heartbeat increased but he didn’t know why , fear engulfed him but he did not know why.
“ Owen , did your mother tell you about Lennox“ the doctor said with a neutral voice
Owen could not believe what he was hearing , his heart raced rapidly and his body trembled
“ how did this man know Lennox, My mum said Lennox appeared to her in the dream shortly after my birth and said a man who called himself Lennox prophesied that although I am dumb, I will speak if the right lady kisses me “ Owen thought and set his gaze on the man watching every body movement of the man
“ I know you can not speak , I am Lennox , did you want to know who the right lady is ?” The doctor said
“you are Lennox “ Owen thought and his eyes was full of surprised
