(PAINS OF LOVE)
* * *
PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL.
We reached the school at about 7:12am. Eric left me to join the other seniors while I walked quietly to the assembly hall.
After the assembly, I walked with Queen to the class.
“Becky, I’m happy to see you again o,” Queen smiled and held my hands.
“I missed you too o but I’m not happy with you,” I smiled too.
“I know but don’t worry, I will pay for your lunch today.”
“Wow! Thank you,” I appreciated.
“Can I ask you something?” She said.
“I want us to be friends, not just any friend but best of friends,” she said.
“Wow!” I was overwhelmed. No one has ever said that to me before. “Sure, we are now best of friends,” I said happily while she hugged me briefly…
Soon, we walked into the class holding hands.
“Wow! Becky,” Some members of my class shouted happily and came to hug me. I was shocked beyond imaginations, even Emeka and Peace hugged me too.
“We missed you!”
“I missed you all too,” I said, laughing along with them though deep down my heart, I knew I was lieing because I didn’t miss any of them.
“Is it true that senior Eric is your brother?, Did your mom really kill your father???” This questions and many more were thrown at me from every corner making me wonder who might have leaked the information to them. I was lost on what to answer, so I simply said, “None of that is true,” to get them off my back.
“Okay but don’t leave us like that again,” Peace smiled while I nodded and she walked back to her seat as the Mathematics teacher walked in.
“I guess this term will end pretty well,” I thought as I sat on my locker. David sat at my back as usual while Queen sat beside me. I opened my locker and brought out my mathematics note book, only to open it and realise that my note was up to date.
I turned to Queen, “Did you copy my notes for me?” I asked.
“Yes!” she smiled and handed me my key.
“Thanks a lot,” I smiled back and collected the key. “But you didn’t lock the locker.”
“I guess David forgot coz he collected the key from me this morning before assembly,” she told me.
I turned back to glance at David but he looked down which made me face front again to find the mathematics teacher’s gaze fixed on me.
“I won’t ask you to keep quiet but instead I’ll punish you,” he said.
“I’m sorry sir,” I apologised calmly, amazed with myself that I could easily apologise.
The teacher simply ignored me and began teaching..
The rest of the teaching’s went well and some of the teachers cared well enough by welcoming me back, promising to conduct extra classes for me, starting from the next day during break.
Soon it was break period. I prepared so I could go the canteen with Queen as she promised.
“I’m ready, let’s go,” I said facing her as I stood up.
“Where’s your school bag?” Queen asked.
“Big girls don’t carry school bag around,” I said.
“I see,” she nodded and moved out from inbetween her locker seat and the top.
“Are you girls leaving without me?” David asked from behind and stood up too, then walked and stood infront of my locker, looking at me.
Queen just hissed and folded her arms, making me wonder what had happened between them.
“what was the meaning of what you did in the morning?” I asked.
“I don’t understand what you’re talking about.”
I eyed him angrily, then hissed and joined Queen who was already outside waiting for me.
“What happened between you and David?” I wanted to know as we walked along the path leading to the cafeteria. The same path I had insulted Eric.
“Dave is a wrong number,” Queen frowned.
“What did he do?”
“He told everyone about your family secret and even refused helping me copy your notes. But sha he did your assignments for you and that’s why I gave him your key this morning so he could put the assignment book inside your locker,” she concluded.
“David behaves strange, He drew the battle for love this morning with Eric but when I asked him why, he pretended not to remember,” I added thoughtfully.
“That’s his own cup of coffee, let’s hurry, you know we have limited time,” she said and began walking faster while I followed suit…
INSIDE THE CAFETERIA
Queen bought me popcorn and hollandia yoghurt and also bought same for herself, then we walked to the far end corner and sat down.
“Where did you get money from coz you don’t always bring money to school?” I asked curiously.
“Mom decided to shower me today o,” she laughed. Soon be began eating the popcorn and all of a sudden, something bad, very bad happened.
As we were gisting and laughing and at the same time eating our snacks, we sighted David through the open glass window frog jumping and that forced us to run outside, only to sight Eric at the far right end of the path with other seniors. The path was a long straight one and I wondered why David was frog jumping from one end of the path to the other…

PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
Queen and I glanced at each other, then as David was about jumping past us again, I quickly reached out and held him, then not minding the students that had gathered, I pulled him up and into my arms and held him tight. He was breathing heavily and I could also feel his legs shaking.
“I’m sorry” was all I could say while still hugging him.
“Let go of him now,” Eric said as he advanced towards us. His voice, I could tell, was filled with anger.
“I won’t release him till he’s stable,” I told him(the stubborn one’s knows how it feels to do frog jump as punishment, lol). Eric came and pulled me away from David forcefully and due to how weak his legs were, he was about falling but I held him and pulled him closer to myself again.
“Becky stop this madnes, students are watching,” Queen pleaded but I ignored her and faced Eric.
“What did David do?” I asked, then added SP as an afterthought because even though we were close, I never wished to disrespect him even one bit.
“I was given authority by the principal to punish him severely for making our family issues go viral,” Eric explained.
“Becky trust me please, I can never hurt the one I love,” David whispered in my ear, maybe for fear of others hearing. I looked directly into David’s eyes and for the first time, I could gladly and boldly defend him because I saw sincerity in his eyes.
“I trust David and I know he can never do such, why don’t you ask others you came along with to visit me, David is too polished to go about gossiping…” I paused and scaned Eric and the seniors face, then swallowed hard and continued, “Look, this isn’t the right time for this,” I concluded and with that placed my hand across David’s shoulder and led him away, leaving them behind to say whatsoever. I didn’t know if what I did was right or not but at that particular time, I felt David was unjustly punished…
I led David to the class and that was when I remembered the popcorn and hollandia yoghurt I had left in the cafeteria, though I felt bad coz it was a gift, I couldn’t bring myself to leave David all along coz last I remember, he had saved my poor ass in so many unpleasant situations.
I made him sit on his locker, tiny beads of sweat formed on his forehead which I used my handkerchief to clean. I opened his locker and brought out an empty coke bottle.
“Let me get you water from the dispenser to drink,” I smiled and made to leave but he held my left hand and I turned to face him.
“Thanks Becky,” he appreciated. “I’m sorry for everything.”
“It’s alright Dave, people make mistakes at times and tends to regret it later.”
“I know but…”
“No buts, Dave, you will always remain my bestie no matter what.”
“Your bestie?” He asked as his eyes widened in shock.
“Yea, your are special to me.”
“Please say that again?” he requested.
“You are special to me,” I repeated.
“One more time please?”
“You are special to me,” I repeated the third time and smiled amusingly. “Are you all right?”
“Yes!” he smiled too. “Watch your back, Queen is a wolf in fine linen,” he added and released my hand.
I stared at him for a moment and then nodded and left the class…
As I walked to the long hall close to our class where the water dispenser was, I couldn’t stop thinking of what David said about Queen and the statement “She’s a wolf in fine linen”” kept ringing in my head but then as I entered the hall, I pushed the thoughts aside, got the water and headed back to the class…
INSIDE THE CLASS
I walked in to meet Queen but didn’t talk to her till I had given David the water to drink. I sat on my locker amd faced her. “I’m sorry,” I apologised. Hmm, apologising seemed to be an easy thing for me that time. I don’t know why o but Queen ignored me. I apologised again, thinking she didn’t hear me at first but she surprised me.
“Just shut up and let me be,” she shouted and hissed loudly.
“Hia! Na so friends dey behave, abeg park well o,” I said in pidgin and also hissed too. Suddenly I felt like urinating but the C.R.K. Teacher came in and I had to wait. I wasn’t chanced to go out till after school and immediately after the bell had gone, I ran out of the class in a speed of light to the toilet…
IN THE TOILET
In our school, four students shared one toilet(i.e four males for one toilet, four females for another each in different sections for male and female. As I stood infront of the toilet I shared with Joy, peace and Queen, I noticed the key wasn’t at the normal hanging place. I tried opening the door but It was locked from inside so I stopped and knocked. I knew no one else could be inside except my partners. Peace and Queen were in class, so I knew the person inside was Joy. I knocked again and again and soon the door opened and guess who I saw coming out with Joy? Eric and gosh! He was trying to adjust his belt but stopped as he saw me…
