(CONTINUED FROM THE LAST EPISODE)
“Daniel, please let go.” I begged Daniel and he
looked at me dejectedly.
“Okay, my nigga don plead on behalf of you all,
so let me just leave you but… I won’t talk.”
Daniel replied and he got on his feet. We left the
class for the field, there we saw Princess in her
customized sport wear. She was looking stunning
and dazzling; she wore a jogger trouser and a
long sleeve shirt which her name was
customized at the back of the shirt.
“Oh, my God… this girl is so beautiful, I am
falling for her.” A velvet voice uttered from
“Ah!” Daniel and I exclaimed surprisingly. Behold
it was Senior Leo.
“What is ‘hmmm’?” Senior Leo asked with some
kind of husky voice.
“You’re falling for your junior, shame on you.”
Daniel abused smiling.
“Will you shut your mouth?” Senior Leo barked
with some kind of husky voice.
“Shut my mouth for what? Is that not your
antics?” Daniel riposted.
“Don’t push me! Don’t aggravate my anger!”
Senior Leo warned.
“You can do your worst for all I care.” Daniel
“Daniel, please stop.” I pleaded.
“Hi Ola.” Princess greeted with smile all over her
“Good morning Princess, how was your night?” I
replied and questioned.
“Splendid, I was just dreaming about you all
through.” She replied without a second though.
“Princess…” I called with my mouth opened in
“Hmm… hmmm.” Senior Leo sighed.
“Princess, so I don’t deserve your greeting?”
Daniel questioned disappointedly.
“Good morning…” Princess greeted without
looking at Daniel.
“Hmmm… I go love o.” Daniel uttered jokingly.
“Silly you.” I replied and I hit Daniel playfully.
Daniel whispered something into my ear and I
accepted. Daniel and I left the field leaving
Senior Leo and Princess on the field. We hide
somewhere we can see the two. Princess could
be seen smiling to Senior Leo talking.
“Ola, I think she is falling for him.” Daniel called
to my notice.
“So how does that concern me?” I asked facing
“Soyou’re indirectly telling me that you don’t like
that girl?” Daniel indirectly asked.
“I like her but…” I replied but unfinished.
“But what again? Since you love her, I can work
things out for you.” Daniel riposted and assured.
“Daniel, I don’t mean anything by saying, I like
her, I only like her as a classmate and friend and
that’s all.” I defended.
“Ola, look there.” Daniel called to my notice.
Behold, Princess was holding her left cheek from
the thunderous slap she received from Senior
“Daniel, Senior Leo slapped her…” I replied but
“Senior Leo did what?” Daniel ask surprisingly
already on his feet.
“Daniel… wait, please don’t do anything silly.” I
tried to hold on Daniel but he was already
running to the scene.
“Princess, what’s wrong?” Daniel asked looking at
Senior Leo dejectedly.
Princess did not utter a word rather she pave
was for more tears from her eyes.
“He slapped her.” A junior student who
witnessed the whole incident reported to me.
“You slapped her?” Daniel asked surprisingly. He
was really enraged and hopping mad, his anger
for Senior Leo aggravated and his strength
double-fold and activate. His eyes turned to red
and his anger could be notice on his face that is
no more inviting. Daniel moved closer to Senior
Leo who moved an inch backward. Daniel maybe
troublesome and niggling but he disliked fighting
and he always tried to avoid trouble especially
fighting. Daniel was brave and courageous and
he was known for that. He was equally
outspoken and honest and he open-minded
especially to me but he is equally secretive and
enigmatic. Daniel hate seeing his love one
punished unjustly and irrationally especially
ladies/girls. He will divert the whole issue on
himself and he would handle it professionally.
“I slapped her because her tongue run and she is
too arrogant and disrespectful…” Senior Leo
replied with a mean face.
“A senior student toasting his junior student,
isn’t that ridiculous?” Daniel asked standing
infront of Senior Leo courageously and
“Ah!” The witnesses expressed surprisingly.
“What nonsense! If you don’t shut that gutter you
call a mouth, I won’t hesitate to shut it for you.”
Senior Leo threatened loudly.
“Then shut it for me.” Daniel barked loudly.
“Isn’t this nonsensical, witness?” Daniel said as
“A secondary school undergraduate sleeping with
a fellow mate and you call yourself a role
model…” Daniel uttered loudly and the whole
witnesses exclaimed in disbelief.
“You fool!” Senior Leo barked angrily as he
raised his hand up in the air and he landed a
thunderous slap on Daniel cheek. Daniel
staggered a bit, but trust me, Daniel gave him a
befitting head-butt and blood could be seen
coming out of Senior Leo’s nose. Some other
senior students intervene and they tried to rough
handle Daniel but the SS1 and SS2 students also
intervene and it was an interesting fight in the
“What’s going on there?” Mr. Anume; the school
disciplinarian barked from a distance running
towards the scene and…
