Came the sound as Daniel was once again floored by
his teacher, none other than our beloved Annabelle.
“Too slow” she teased as she walked around his
groaning form. “How do you expect to beat Luke and
the rest if I am too much for you”
She raised her leg up and brought it down on his chest
but he quickly rolled away at the last minute making
her heel smash into the wooden floor, creating a hole in
it. He raised his eyebrow at that.
“ Hmm” he said as he stood in a fighting stance. “ Not
planning to go easy on me?”
She charged towards him and threw a punch but he
dodged barely as he felt the breeze move past his face
from the movement of her fist. He landed a punch in her
stomach stunning her a bit and making her double over.
Seeing an opportunity to strike, he attempted to hit knee
her face but she put her palm in the way, pushing his
knee back and aimed to strike his stomach but he
quickly caught her fist and spun her around before
grabbing her from behind in a chokehold.
“ I guess the student is gaining ground on the teacher”
He whispered into her ear as he held her tight. “ Or are
you getting rusty?”
“You are doing well” She grinned in his hold. “But you
are forgetting something”
“What’s that?” he mused.
She elbowed him in the stomach, making him release
his hold and she reached behind her, grabbed his left
arm and flipped him over, making him land on his back
for the 20th time that day. She sat on his stomach with
her knees on either side of him and pinned his hands
with hers above his head. He struggled against her but
it was pointless. She was clearly the stronger one.
“ If you have the upper hand in a fight” She smiled as
she watched him squirm. “ Never let your guard down or
your opponent would use it against you. Haven’t you
ever noticed why the good guys always win in most
Daniel stopped struggling and gave her a confused look.
“ Because they are the better fighters” He said
“Wrong” she released one of her hand and poked him on
the nose with her index finger. “ Trust me, majority of
the good guys always lose against the bad guys in
movies when it comes to hand to hand combat. If you
notice, the bad guys are the better fighters and they
always dominate in fights. A bad guy’s Achilles heel in
movies is always his stupidity. He clearly has the good
guy beaten and battered before him, vulnerable to his
finishing blow and what does he do? He starts
sputtering nonsense on how he won the fight and how
he is going to finish him and rule the world or some
kind of nonsense like that”
Daniel couldn’t help but chuckle at that.
“And then” Annabelle continued “ The good guy gets
momentum and quickly kills the bad guy. The end”
She concluded and they both laughed at that. Daniel
smiled inwardly as he watched her laugh. He was glad
to see this side of her. The bright and cheerful side.
She got up from him and offered him a hand which he
accepted and she pulled him up.
“My point is “ she continued, a serious look appearing
on her face. “ Vampires are bloodthirsty and ten times
stronger and faster than humans. So if you have the
opportunity to kill one, do it. Because they would do
much worse to you.”
“What could be worse than death?” he questioned
“Trust me” she said, picking up a small towel and
wrapping it around her neck. “ A lot of things could be
worse than death. Remember that. Class is over. Any
Daniel stared at the sweaty form of Annabelle as she
wiped her face with the towel. She was currently
wearing a black sports bra and black shorts that were
way too short, revealing her long tanned legs. Her fists
were covered with white tapes and her hair was in a
ponytail. She looked like quite the bombshell. Daniel
gulped as a bead of sweat made it’s way from her face
down to her neck and slithered slowly into her exposed
“Hello!!” she snapped her fingers in front of his face and
he looked up.
“ My eyes are up here” She grinned teasingly.
He blushed as he knew he had been caught.
“Again?!!” Jake cried out as he stared at Tomiwa in
surprise. “ What don’t you understand in that part?!”
They were currently sitting on a bench beside her hostel
as boys were prohibited from entering the building and
vice versa. It was already dark and the were studying
with the aid of the light coming from the bulb that was
outside her hostel as well as their phone torches.
Sharon was in the hostel taking her bath and Daniel
was AWOL… as usual. So it was just two of them.
“It’s so complicated” she whined cutely pointing at a
spot in the book. “ Please go over it again one more
time. I promise I will give you all my attention”
“What?” Jake blanched as he misinterpreted her words.
“I meant attention to your teaching!” she squealed, her
cheeks becoming pink as she realized her blunder. “
Yeah, that’s what I meant” she concluded with a silly
Jake smiled and explained the chapter all over again
and this time, she did all her best to grab as much as
she could. When he was done, he asked her if she got
all he said and she nodded approvingly. He tested her
with some questions, closing the book ,and she
“See?” he grinned. “ It’s easy when you get the hang of
“Yeah” she smiled back at him. Jake caught her look
and he blushed, rubbing the back of his neck. He didn’t
know why but there was something about her that
made him melt. Whether it was her teasing smile or her
cute laughter or the way she pouted when she was
frustrated. He couldn’t place his finger on it. Or was it
her looks? Her dark skin, heart shaped face, pink lips
and lively eyes. She was just too perfect.
“Hey, tomi?” he coughed
“Yeah?” she replied.
“I was just thinking” he pressed his index finger against
his other palm and she almost giggled at that. “ Well,
tomorrow night. I was wondering if, well.. if we could
eat out together. Just you and I?. Nothing really fancy”
‘ Is he asking me what I think he is asking me?’ she
squealed happily in her head. Only Sharon knew of her
crush on Jake as she made sure to tease her to no end
“Jacob Adewale” She tilted her head side ways at him
and smiled. “ Are you asking me out on a date?”
“Well..” he stuttered and then coughed to regain his
composure. “ What if I am?” he winked at her. “ Will I
get arrested for it?”
“No” she replied. “ You’ll get a yes for it”
They stared into each other’s eyes for a while before the
church bell startled them from nearby. They laughed at
that before getting up. He walked her to the entrance
before turning around.
“Jake?” she called and he turned around
“Yeah” he replied
“Don’t be late” she whispered, smiling
“I won’t” he replied. “ Goodnight”
“Goodnight” she said and walked inside.
He sighed happily and walked away towards the
direction of his hostel.
From his viewing place, an evil smile made it’s way on
Luke’s face as he watched Jake walk quickly and
excitedly towards the hostel.
“ First Esther, then Jacob” he whispered to himself. “
This is going to be a thrilling party. ”
