EPISODE 4

I and Sandra left the school to prepare
for the movie. on my way home, I met
my coursemates Gofwane, ikbnice and
pu7pl3 at the school gate. They were
grinning from ear to ear when they saw me,
which showed that something was on their
minds. but I just can’t place it.
“prince, I saw you and Sandra some minutes
ago. are you dating her?” Gofwane asked.
“how did you do it?” ikbnice chipped in.
Gofwane, ikbnice and pu7pi3 were part of the
guys in class who had at one point in time
tried to woo Sandra, but their effort didn’t
yield any result. They had gotten similar
response from Sandra, which was to focus
more on boosting their cgpa.
“I’m not dating her” I answered their
question.
“then why did I see you both alone at the lab”
pu7pl3 asked.
“we were just discussing” I answered.
“we are saying the same thing” ikbnice cut in
“I want to know how you did it. I want to
know why Sandra of all people could sit with
you alone in an empty class for close to 30
minutes.”
“what did you give her to eat? which native
doctor did you go to? your charm must be
very powerful for it to have effect on Sandra.
Do you still have some portion left, because I
will like to use it on this new girl I saw today
in school.” Gofwane said.
I could only laugh at their silly questions and
comments.

I looked round to see grayjonz approaching us
from behind. the look on his face was not
funny at all. he shook hands with Gofwane,
ikbnice and pu7pl3 when he got to us, but
only shot me an angry glance. the look on his
face sent shivers down my spine.
“so you are dating Sandra now” he said to me.
so that was it. I thought. that was why he was
giving me that look. he thought I was dating
Sandra. well I don’t blame him, since he had
also tried to date Sandra but wasn’t
successful. infact, he had the worst encounter
with Sandra. it was an embarrassing moment
for him.
mustack had lied to him that he overheard
Sandra telling her friend, rebirthforgoody
that she had a huge crush on grayjonz.
grayjonz could not control his joy when
mustack told him this. he was so anxious to
profess his love for Sandra.

That same day in class, just immediately Dr.
jostico, our cost accounting lecturer left the
class, grayjonz walked to generalbush our
class rep and whisper some words into his
ear. generalbush walked to stand it front of
the class and asked to have everyone
attention. everyone paid attention to listen to
the information generalbush had for the
class.
“our coursemate grayjonz, has an important
announcement to make. I will encourage you
all to give him a listening ear while he passes
his information” generalbush said.
grayjonz stood up immediately and walked to
the front. he faced the whole class and
cleared his throat.
“I actually want to make a public declaration
just like generalbush said” he began.
“I know you all would have noticed how some
guys in this department had been trying to ask
Sandra for a date without yielding any result.
I’m not saying that they are not capable of
dating Sandra. all I am saying is that, once
your heart is made for someone, there is
nothing anybody can do to change that. I am
not saying that I am better than anyone for
coming out here to declare my intention. I
want to make a public declaration about my
feelings for Sandra.” he paused and looked
straight into Sandra’s eyes.
“Sandra I love you and I want to date you” he
said smiling.
there was total silence in the class. grayjonz
did not notice the glare that Sandra shot at
him.
Sandra stood up and walked to the front of
the class. all eyes in class followed her
direction, waiting curiously for her reply. she
walked to meet grayjonz and stood opposite
him.
“grayjonz” she called softly.
“yes dear” grayjonz responded, with smile
still visible on his face.
Sandra turned to face the class.
“grayjonz has publicly declared his love for
me” she began.
“and I must say that I am thankful to know
that he thinks highly of me. I also commend
his courage for coming out publicly to declare
his love for me. not everyone would be able
to do that for someone they love. i have to
make something clear right now.”
she turned and stared into grayjonz’s eyes.
“I am sorry grayjonz. I feel nothing for you.
it’s just a one-sided attraction. I’m publicly
turning you down. go look for someone that
Will love you just the way you love her and
get your mind off me. I don’t love you and
will never do. I’m sorry.”
Sandra shot him one last glance and walked
out of the class. the whole class roar with
laughter immediately Sandra left.grayjonz
stood still staring at the door Sandra just
walked out from.
the noise and laughter in the class was so loud
that it attracted students from other classes.

All generalbush effort to call the class to order
was fruitless. grayjonz stared at mustack with
a questioning look, probably asking him to
explain what just happened. but all mustack
could do, was to wink and show grayjonz his
two index fingers, which could be interpreted
as an even score. Meaning, grayjonz might
have done same to him and he is only getting
even with grayjonz.
grayjonz tried his possible best not to blink, to
prevent the tears which had already formed
in his eyes from dropping.
A tap on my shoulder brought me back to
reality. that was when I realise I was still
standing at the school entrance with my
coursemates.
“you have not answered my question” ikbnice
said.
“when did you and Sandra become that close
that you can discuss with her alone in an
empty class.”
I could only smile at his question.
my coursemates might be very good with
words when it comes to wooing ladies. but
what they don’t understand was that ladies
are different with their different
personalities. what worked for ladyA might
not work for ladyB.
Though, it is true that you can work your way
into a lady’s heart with the right use of
words. infact, some ladies unconsciously
yearned to hear those sweet words from guys.
but this don’t work for all ladies. sweet
words alone won’t work for ladies like
Sandra. ladies as pretty as Sandra have heard
those sweet words you have to say a
thousand times already. saying it to them
would make little or no effect.
if you go to their Facebook or IG page, you
will be shock at the number of sweet
comments you would see for just a picture
they uploaded. you would even see comment
like “did you fall from heaven”. so adding
yours to it, is just like adding a drop of water
to an ocean.

The only time such words will have effect on
them is, when is was coming from someone
they already love. someone that they already
have a place for in their heart. so the first
thing you should do before using, those words
on them, is to try having a place in their
heart. and some of the ways to do that, is to
try doing or saying things you believe no one
has done or said to them, changing their
moods when you are with them. if you can
make a lady happy this moment, the next
moment she is angry with you, after a while
she is worried, and later she is happy again.
then I must say that you are gradually
working your way into her heart.
if you are the type that think you are winning
a lady’s heart and you still can’t make her
happy or get her angry, she always has this
blank expression on her face whenever she is
with you. even if you go to the extent of
kissing her bestfriend in her presence, she
would still not get angry. Then you still have
a long way to go.

I was brought back to reality by a tap from
Gofwane.
“your mind seems to be elsewhere. what’s
wrong?” he asked.
“nothing bro. I have to leave now” I said
“okay no problem” Gofwane said.
I shook hands with them and left the school
to prepare for the movie.
goodnight…. am tired…pls try to understand,,, I
overworked myself today
