“For real, man?” Jake said as he walked alongside
Daniel. The two were currently on their way to class.
Daniel had left Ann’s place early and reached his hostel
just in time to shower and leave with Jake as they had
an early lecture, so which meant no time for breakfast.
Daniel had given him the gist of how he left lecture and
stayed in a friend’s place, omitting information of the
ambush from Luke as well as not revealing the name of
the “friend” that he stayed with. He already had Ann
laughing at him. He didn’t want another comedy
“Yeah” Daniel replied. “it just happened all of a sudden.
One minute, we are watching a movie and before we
know it, time has passed away. The movies were
“Which ones?” Jake asked.
“The ghost and the darkness..” Daniel began.
“Seriously? That movie is old school” Jake interrupted “
You haven’t watched it before?”
“ No” Daniel lied. Truth be told, he had watched it a
long time ago but he needed that lie to make his other
lie look convincing. He sighed inwardly as he
remembered that saying. If you tell a lie, you’ll need
another lie to cover that one up.
Sudden rumbling was heard above them and they
looked up just to see the sky darken and grey clouds
began to surround it.
“Na wa o” Jake grumbled. “ Since the beginning of this
semester, one hasn’t seen the sun. If it is not rain, it is
fog. Weird, right?” he turned to Daniel.
“ Yeah” Daniel muttered absentmindedly. “ Weird”
“Jake, how far na?”
“Guy, I heard o. sorry. I hope you are feeling better?”
“You didn’t miss much,sha”
These were the words that greeted the duo, particularly
Jake, as they entered the class. Jake replied in the
affirmative and moved over to where the rest of the
clique were seated.
“ Jake” Tomiwa beamed as he sat beside her. “ How
are you feeling now?”
“Better than ever” He replied with his ever confident
grin. “ Malaria can’t take me down”
“I told you” Daniel said to the girls. “Dude’s too
Jake elbowed his ribs slightly and they all laughed.
“It’s good to have you back, though” Tomiwa said,
twirling her hair in her fingers.
“Hey, it was just for one day” Jake said, raising his
eyebrow at her. “ Did you miss me that much?” he
“You wish” She muttered flicking her finger against his
“Don’t mind her” Sharon said, giving her friend an evil
smile. Opportunity to get back at her. “ She missed you
more than you can imagine and she couldn’t stop
talking about you throughout yesterday. It was getting
“Keep deceiving yourself” Tomiwa retorted, though a tint
of pink appeared on her cheeks, which Sharon detected
“OOH!” Sharon squealed. “ See? She’s blushing!!
Tomiwa and Jake, sitting in a tree, K-I-S…”
She couldn’t complete her sentence, courtesy of Daniel
who covered her mouth with his palm. She frowned as
she struggled against his grip, but he was the stronger.
“Alright, Sharon” Daniel laughed at the girl’s feeble
attempt to get his hand off her mouth. “ Cut your friend
some slack. She’s already….AAAH!!!”
Daniel cried out as she bit his hand. He withdrew his
hand and wringled it before scowling at her.
“ What the.. You bit me!!”
She stuck her tongue out at him. “ Serves you right”
“ Urgh, that’s disgusting” He retorted before smearing
his wet hand on her shirt.
“HEY!!” she cried out in disgust.
“Stop complaining” Tomiwa smiled “ It’s your own spit
Sharon grumbled and remained quiet and Daniel
couldn’t help but chuckle at this. Turning around, he
saw Annabelle sitting a few seats behind him. For once
she wasn’t staring. She was engrossed in a book, a
serious expression on her face. As if realizing she was
being watched, she looked up from her book and their
eyes met. A smile came to her face and she waved
slightly at him. He waved back and faced his front
quickly as a lecturer came to the class.
‘You know?’ he thought to himself. ‘ Now that I think
about it, she’s not so bad. Teasing, playful, flirty. But
that’s what makes her interesting. I really feel bad for
thinking she was a weirdo. Crazy as this sounds, I
might really want to take her up on her offer on teaching
He laughed at that final thought, which unfortunately
was caught by his lecturer. A middle aged sadist who
loved dishing out difficult assignments and tests much
to the frustration of the class. Wrong move, Daniel.
“DANIEL JOHNSON!!” the man bellowed, rather
unnecessarily. “ STAND UP!!”
‘Oh.****!’ Daniel groaned inwardly as he knew he was
busted. He stood up quickly and all eyes were on him.
( what he hated the most)
“Since you find my lecture so amusing, can you be so
kind and generous to share with the class what is
making you laugh?” The man continued as he adjusted
his glasses on his nose.
“Nothing, sir” Daniel replied quickly.
“Oh really?” the man was amused. “ All of a sudden you
felt like laughing” he added and slight laughter rang out
throughout the class.
“SILENCE!!” he roared and the class became as silent
as a graveyard. If a pin dropped on the ground, You
could definitely hear it. Turning to Daniel, he continued.
“ What did you score in my last test?”
‘ is this really necessary?’ Daniel thought. He replied
The class was surprised. Well, except Jake and the rest
of the clique. The man’s tests were very difficult to
pass and very few people managed to get an average
score on it. Daniel was two marks away from getting a
A look of surprise passed the man’s face momentarily
before it vanished and his expression was back to his
usual monstrous one.
“Oh” He began “ So because you managed to score high,
you think you can misbehave abi? Sit down.”
Daniel obeyed immediately. He looked around and
noticed some girls giggling at his direction. However,
they were scared off by Sharon’s murderous glare.
“Since my class is so hilarious,” The man continued as
an evil smile began to appear on his face. A smile the
students had come to know and hate. “ I believe my
test tomorrow will be even funnier. You all are going to
laugh and rollover on the floor when you see it. Prepare
for my test tomorrow”
There was a collective groan in the class as majority
casted venomous glares at Daniel’s direction making
him shrink in guilt on his seat. Way to go, Dan.
A certain student kept on staring at his direction.
Manicured fingers drumming slightly at the table and a
slight smile appearing on her lips. There was definitely
some updates she would give her master tonight…..
Class was soon over and the lecturer left. They had an
hour’s break before the next lecture could commence.
“ Men, I’m hungry” Jake grumbled standing up from his
“Tell me about it” Daniel replied. “ So, to where? Lets go
to highland canteen”
“ Yeah, sure” Sharon said, Tomiwa agreeing.
“ Hey, Dan” a familiar voice came from behind them. It
was Annabelle . She walked up to the group and linked
her arm around Daniel’s much to the group’s surprise.
Daniel blushed a bit but made no effort to remove her
“ Hey Ann” he said awkwardly, ignoring the teasing
grins on Jake and Tomiwa’s faces as well as oblivious
to Sharon’s angry look.
“Sorry, guys” Annabelle apologized. “ But I need to
borrow your friend for a while”
“Oh feel free” Jake waved his hands dismissively. “ He’s
‘Really?’ Daniel thought sarcastically. ‘ Traitor’
“Alright” Annabelle smiled swiftly and dragged Daniel
away from the classroom.
Sharon’s glare intensified and Tomiwa took notice of
“Wow” tomiwa teased. “ If looks could kill, Annabelle
would have been dead minutes ago”
Jake was about to reply in agreement when two hands
slipped from behind him and covered his eyes.
“Guess who” a feminine voice whispered.
Jake sighed and replied. “ Angela”
She removed her hands and he turned to look at her.
She was a lady of average height with a voluptuous
figure and fair skin. She had a flat nose and her hair
was fixed in a weave on. She wore a rather short
miniskirt and a blue jacket which were unbuttoned to
reveal a pink shirt.
“Correct” she smiled. “ How are you now?”
“I’m great. Thanks” Jake forced a smile on his face. Her
reputation for flirting around wasn’t lost on him and he
didn’t really want any of that right now. His stomach
was waging war and he needed to pacify it.
“Since you are back,” she smiled, running her finger
along his arm and giving him a seductive smile which
was not missed by the other girls. “ Come and buy me
food. I’m starving”
“I’m sorry” Tomiwa cut in, having had enough. She
linked her arm around Jake’s making him blush and
Sharon giggle. “ But we were about going to eat”
“Okay, then” Angela smiled but her eyes held a different
expression in them. She turned to Jake “some other
He shrugged uncaringly. She smiled and walked away,
swaying her hips as she did. Jake rolled his eyes and
“ Erm.. Tomi?” Jake said turning to her.
“Yeah?” she smiled at him.
“Our arms” he said in a low voice, gesturing to their
“OH, RIGHT!” she squealed bashfully and released his
arm, blushing rapidly. “ Sorry”
“No problem” he muttered rubbing the back of his neck
and looking away.
Sharon laughed and they turned to look at her.
“ You guys are hopeless” she giggled.
