THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
Esther is a very emotional girl but
physically strong that even Jennifer cannot
handle her beating if they are to test their
physical abilities. But at this moment,
Chester was only seeing the emotions in
her eyes that made his heart sank into his
stomach. From the way she looked, he
thought, if only he could do magic or
abracadabra for Wisdom to fall inlove with
Esther, he would have done it immediately
but he couldn’t, and the whole thing
rendered him speechless.
“Won’t you say anything?” Esther broke the
“Do you really want me to tell Wisdom that
you love him?” Chester wanted to be
“No, i want you to use your influence as his
best friend and make him understand that i
love him indirectly”
“Oh, now i understand. Don’t worry, i will
“Thank you” she smiled.
Wisdom met Tochi at Mr Anuma’s office
with her own list too. But she was standing
at the door.
“Good afternoon, senior” Tochi prostrated.
“Why are you standing outside?”
“Mr Anuma isn’t in”
“Where is he?”
“In principal’s office”
Wisdom looked around. He knew he
couldn’t just keep the list on his table, so
he looked at Tochi and stretched the list to
“Hold it, i will be coming back. My friends
are waiting for me”
Tochi gently collected the paper and he
rushed out. But he suddenly stopped and
turned when he heard Tochi murmured.
“What did you say?” he asked.
“I didn’t say anything senior”
“But you soliloquized”
“Hey! Senior when did you become Mr
Anuma again. I don’t know the meaning of
solilo…” she forgot the full pronunciation.
“I demand to know what you said now!”
Wisdom cut out a flower as a cane and
began to tie the branches together. Seeing
that Tochi confessed.
“Senior, i said you want to go and meet
your friends, that means me, standing here
is your enemy”
Wisdom stared at her, the more he looked
the more her beauty enters into his eyes,
mind and body. He threw away the cane
and said, “Kneel down”
“I said kneel down!”
Tochi gradually went on her kneels and
raised up her hands, then Wisdom left.
Just as Wisdom was walking back to Esther
and Chester, Jennifer and Calista met him.
Esther could see then from afar.
“I want to wait for you to close the
classrooms today” Jennifer told Wisdom
with her hands on his shoulder.
“Why?” he asked.
“So that i will be able to let the cat out of
“Is unfortunate that i have other things to
do after closing the classrooms. We shall
talk tomorrow” he disengaged her hands
from his shoulder.
“Okay, see you tomorrow then”
Esther exhaled deeply when Wisdom finally
came leaving the annoying Jennifer as she
thought. She smiled at him again.
“You always smile for no reason and i like
that” Wisdom told her.
“I don’t know how to control it and thank
God you like it” they giggled.
“Mr Anuma isn’t in his office, so i think you
can go instead of waiting for me”
“No, Esther will go while i wait for you
today” Chester said and gave Esther an eye
contact which shows that he wanted to
carryout their plans.
“Yes, is true” Esther supported. “Buy!” she
added and left.
Only few students remained nd it was only
remaining a classroom 2 be closed by
Wisdom, then he said, “Guy, d girl isn’t bad
“I told you! So you are now admiring her”
“That’s good, you should go for d person
that loves you”
“Like who?” Wisdom looked at him.
“Like Esther, i think she loves you”
Wisdom remained quiet looking at him.
“Esther is quite good but i don’t have any
feelings for her. How did u even know she
“Bcoz she always talks about you every
“Don’t worry, guy, we are just friends”
“Think about it oh, guy” Chester shook
hands with him and left.
Mr Anuma arrived at his office and saw
Tochi kneeling down.
“Desmond” he called. “Why are you on your
“Senior Wisdom told me to do so”
Before Tochi answered, Wisdom appeared,
then Mr Anuma turned to him.
“Caleb” he called. “What can warrant a
juvenile like you who should juxtapose with
elegant students like Tochi to put her in
such nefarious condition?”
Tochi began to smile when the grammar
scattered her head. Even Wisdom also
smiled, so he had no option but to explain
“Sir, she soliloquized after i gave her an
“You should have pardoned her.
Sometimes your punishment should be
“Okay, sir” Wisdom answered smiling even
though he didn’t know the meaning of
justifiable. “You can stand up, Tochi” he
added, then collected the list from her and
handed it to Mr Anuma.
Only Tochi and Wisdom remained in the
school. As they left the office quietly,
Widow asked, “Which road are you taking?”
“That road” Tochi pointed at it.
“Then we can go together. That’s the same
road i want to follow”
“You mean two of us?”
“Yes, any p?”
“No oh, no p”
They stared at each other.
“Wait let me get my bag” Wisdom said and
Wisdom was still in his classroom when Mr
Anuma drove out and saw Tochi standing
alone, then he whined down his glass and
adjusted his eyeglass.
“Desmond!” he called. “What are still doing
standing like an evacuee. You can see the
weather is hundred percent egreglous”
Tochi smiled because she always enjoys
“I’m waiting for Wisdom, sir” she replied.
As Mr Anuma wanted to whine up the
glass, Tochi interrupted him.
“Sir!” she called smiling, and Wisdom saw
her through the window how she was so
conversant with Mr Anuma.
“Any problem, Desmond” Mr Anuma asked.
“Sir, i want to be like you oh”
“Yes sir. I enjoy your grammar”
Mr Anuma smiled. “For you to be like me,
you have to become a Lexicographer” he
“Ele ngini?!” Tochi asked in igbo language
holding her ears closer to Mr Anuma and
Wisdom smiled from the window.
“Lexicographer!” Mr Anuma repeated.
“Nna sir, this one is too much”
“Just make use of your oxford dictionary
my dear, sixth edition and above” Mr
Anuma concluded and drove out, then
Wisdom came out.
“Are you ready?” he asked.
“Yes” Tochi replied.
“Let’s go, the weather is bad”
They began to walk briskly towards the
narrow lonely road. The more they walk,
the more the weather changes. None of
them said a word but only thought of how
unbelievable it was for both of them to
walk home together. Tochi occasionally
glanced at him with the corner of her eyes.
And sometimes if their eyes catch together
they will smile.
Just at the middle of the road, rain began
to fall and there was no nearby buildings.
“Oh Lala!” Tochi exclaimed. “Senior is
raining oh” she added.
“What are we going to do?!”
Wisdom raised his head and saw a tree
that serves as a shelter.
“Let’s go to that tree and stay under it!
Tochi couldn’t run due to her bag and
Wisdom collected it from her, then she
stared at him in surprise
“Why are you looking at me? Run!” Wisdom
shouted again before she realised herself.
They finally got to the tree partially wet and
Wisdom saw Tochi breathing heavily with
her hands on her kneels trying to regain
“I’m tired” Tochi stood erect.
“Sorry” Wisdom said without looking at her
but she stared at him.
“Can i have my bag?” she demanded.
“Sure” Wisdom handed it to her and they
looked at each other straight into the eyes.
“I never knew you are this good” Tochi
broke the silence. “You have been so mean
to me lately”
Wisdom smiled, he kept his bag and began
to unbotton his shirt.
“Such is school life, though I’m sorry for
being so mean to you” he apologized, then
Tochi kept quiet. She dropped her bag too
and placed her hands across her shoulder
gazing into the sky. Wisdom noticed that
she was battling with cold, then he brought
out a jacket from his bag and covered her
shoulder without her knowledge. Tochi
became speechless, she also watched him
clear the ground and told her to sit.
Without hesitation, she gradually sat down
and Wisdom sat beside her with just a
singlet, then they stared at each other…
Esther wore a jacket and a jean trouser at
home. In her room, she walked towards the
window and held the metal protector
staring at the heavy rain. She couldn’t stop
thinking about Wisdom. “Chester don’t
disappoint me” she thought and brought
out her assignment book.
On the other hand, Jennifer was already
doing her assignment. She didn’t put on
anything but just a pant and bra. One could
see the shape of her p—y through the white
pant. She suddenly kept her pen and raised
one of her legs up. “Is time to tell Wisdom
my mind since he can’t just notice it” she
thought and grabbed her pen back.
However, Calista had done her assignment
already. She wore a bumshort and a red
top. She couldn’t stop thinking of the way
Chester shouted at her at school, then she
became heartbroken and blamed Esther for
Moreover, Melody walked in2 her room
wearing a long fairy gown without a bra.
Her n—–s were visibly seen but she didn’t
mind bcoz she was the only one at home.
She wasn’t thinking of anybody but the
good deed Wisdom rendered to her
couldn’t get off her memory. His handsome
face appeared to her each time she closed
Finally, at Chester’s resident, he couldn’t
just stop thinking about Esther’s very
statement: Just make Wisdom understand
that i love him, please!
Tochi was carried away by Wisdom’s
muscular body. So she became shy to look
“Why did you pull your cloth?” she asked.
“To allow it dry” Wisdom replied and they
became quiet again.
“Thank you very much for your kindness,
senior” Tochi broke the silence.
“You’re welcome. But you can stop calling
“Calling you what?”
“But you are my senior”
“Under a tree?” they smiled.
Tochi struggled to rest her back on the tree
comfortably. When Wisdom noticed it, he
placed his hand across her shoulder and
said, “Rest in my arms”
Tochi smiled and slept off in his arms…..🙈
Shey u dey grab😁😁
