The late afternoon weather turned out to be favourable the shining sun smiled down on mother earth slight breeze bristled silently as students and lecturers trooped in and out of the ever too busy canteen most students wore their expressions on there faces,the loud creaking of chairs,clatters of plates and cutleries,the place was rather crowdy and noisy.
Iris and Ivie walked into the canteen accompanied by sagbore there close friend and a course mate of Ivie they both work at the school press club but Iris was yet to understand the mystery between the two why he always seems to get on Ivie nerves though she thought he was a perfect match for her loquacious and tenacious friend,the moods between the two was rather
“My love tell me what you would like to have for lunch,I will ensure you are treated like the princess you are” Sagbore purred he was in a playful mood as he drew out seats for the
ladies”see I can be a gentleman”
Ivie grunted as she sat down facing Iris “I told you it was a bad idea following him here the whole school will know he is the one treating us for lunch”
Iris chuckled as sagbore drew his seat closer to them.
Sagbore was as tall as Ivie dark complexioned with a polished chiseled face that looks almost innocent hiding any trace of sin he had this smooth sweet voice that caught people attention whenever he speaks,he wasn’t fat but was all meaty and fresh smooth skin which he treated with delicate care spending most of his free time in a spa or massage house .
The first time Ivie had introduced her to him she had almost confused him for a sissy,never the less he was just a cheerful person and fun to be with he was that kind of guy that was rather seen in the company of girls rather than his male peers.
“Will you stop fussing over me at least Iris is here too” she complained as he smuggled more closer fussing over her hair
“I have just missed you so much love of my life” he stole a quick kiss from her cheeks he made an attempt on arranging the strands of weave on that had dropped to her face but she quickly swatted his hands away sagbore laughed obviously enjoying himself he just didn’t know why he enjoyed getting to her.
“Pretty do you believe me when I say am head over heels for this girl” he chuckled turning his attention to Iris who seem to be enjoying the childish banter replied with a muffled laugh
“yes I do believe you ”
“Wetin that one come mean na…I reject every sagbore in my life” Ivie replied with a smile
“Okay I think I have gotten under your toes enough for today,can we order”
“Finally” Ivie leaped with excitement “am going to make sure I empty your pocket before we leave here” she threatened as she motioned for the server
“The pleasure is all mine”sagbore smiled
” so I heard you finally put Mr jerk in his place
“Ivie asked as they were served the food they had ordered with a wave from Jude who sighted Iris it was her half day today
” how news travel fast…though serves him right…he called me names “Iris mind brewed at the thought of him
” like what”sagbore asked with a chuckle
“Impulsive,rude scary and ugly…” she tried racking her head for others but her two friends was finding it funny.
“That guy must have gotten under your skin…even peter didn’t made you that pissed”
“Lies they both make my skin crawl” she pointed out
“Whatever” Ivie slurred
“So you guys coming for the girls night or what”sagbore asked excited of the next day that happened to be Friday
” why does it had to be in a club”Iris frowned she had never been to a club before and had several times declined to follow her friends there
“Loosen up spoil sport jeez!…it’s not a club its just a night lounge and many of our students will be there and you are coming “Ivie replied glaring at her
“Fine …am coming with you guys” she spoke with a slight hesitation
“Good girl…you won’t regret it” sagbore clapped happily giving her a wink as she flipped her tongue at him.
Liam sat down at the other end of the restaurant he had purposely choose that spot when he spotted miss firecracker that’s iris sitting with a group of friends there he could get a clear view of her.
He was beginning to admit grudgingly that the d--n name Philip gave her really suits her when she wasn’t all wild and scary,she no longer wore the oversized worn out shirt but a chocolate faded tank top that did little to accentuate her shape ,even from a distance her smile was contagious, he didn’t realize he was smiling too.
If she kept that up the world will lit up
he thought her musical laughter rang out through out the restaurant
What was it about her ?
Picking at his food he had for a moment forgotten that Erin and Philip were sitting close to him
“Helloo am here flesh and blood ,alive and breathing” Erin spat our irritated as she waved her beautiful manicured fingers at him
“Isn’t obvious” Philip drawled as miss high and mighty glared at him then turned to Liam
“Care to share what or who might have piqued your interest”
Erin smiled painfully a trace of sarcasm in her vioce
“Well you wouldn’t guess” Liam replied her
Philip scoffed given Liam a knowing look of what had piqued his interest
“Common intrigue me” Erin let on
“Quit it Erin,can we just eat and make out of this day a peaceful one,you promised”
“I wasn’t making a fuss or anything” she replied wanting to have the last say
“There she goes again” Philip rolled his eyes
“Just mind your d--n business nose pucker”
She cut him off she just hated the guy he was just one of the many obstacles that stood in the way of her and Liam getting together.
Liam silently chewed on his lunch,he inwardly wondered what his mom had seen in Erin to try to encourage a thing between them all he saw between the both of them if they happened to end up together was an imminent crash he wouldn’t have the patience to endure her dramatic display,he wondered why she was after him her father has his own fair share of wealth and a senator of the state,what does she really want from him.
Liam eyes drifted to where miss firecracker was paying less attention to Erin who was going out of her way to be chatty with him as she hovers close dotting her attention on him he knew her better she was creating a perfect picture of how close they are she was like a dog ready to bite at girl who came close to him
He followed Iris every move with his eyes even when she went to the counter to talk to the mancho guy that looked like a sack of rice the familiarity between them made him frown.
“You are staring at her again” Erin spoke with a frown etched on her face “could you at least get a grip of yourself and respect the fact am here”
“What? Do I look like have lost it,you are been irrational” Liam replied surprised at himself too
“Is she the latest” Erin asked not minding if she was actually creating a scene
Philip almost choked on the water he was gulping
Liam glared at him unsmiling.
“Even if she is what is it to you” he asked now testy
“Is she the reason why you are rejecting me” she asked ignoring Philip upsetting presence
“What is it she has that am lacking in tell me Liam,s far as my senses permits me isn’t she the canteen staff” her eyes widened in as if in disbelief
“How could you stand me up for some random impoverished gold digger,a scruffy staff at that”
Liam snapped dropping his spoon
“Do you know what you are lacking Erin,self control,you are too overly illusive and irrational for my liking” he glared at her and spoke in a low tone”and don’t you dare give me that sassy attitude maybe you have forgotten who I am I can do as I d--n well please”
Erin was in no way close to his level and can never be his type,he couldn’t even consider been with her it would turn out a disaster
“Besides I don’t even recall giving you an impression we have an us” Liam added knowing there quarell had attracted peoples attention he saw as Mrs firecracker looked at him with disdain and turned away from him
Erin gave him a chagrined look picking her fancy
handbag and half ran out of the canteen.
He couldn’t careless if she was crying
“Am not certain if you really put her in her place, trust me she would come back to stake her claim”
Philip replied with a worried frown
“At least I have a few hour of peace and rational thinking” Liam signed with a loss of appetite
“And an eyeful of someone I guess”. Philip completed grinning from ear to ear
” you know what I think my friend ”
Liam asked motioning for Philip to come closer
“What?” Philip whispered with a chuckle
“You are really feather brained”
Liam concluded his face expression less doing his best to ignore wiping the stupid smirk off his friend face.
Love is like the wind
You can’t see it but feel it
