********
My mind got disrupted, what could be the reason he asked me to come, I asked myself.
I told Victor to go in first, I’ll join him later.
Mr wisdom’s office was located almost at the end of the hallway,
I sighed deeply as I knocked on his door followed by his voice
**” come in “**
My mind skipped a beat as I unlocked his door and entered.
**” help your self to a seat Mr Marseillaise “** he said without taking his eye away from the article he was reading, he has a pecky glass on his face which I presumed to be recommended.
I sat on one of the guest sit in his office waiting for him to tell me the reason he summoned me .
After what seemed like an eternity he raised his head up for the first time to speak.
***
MR WISDOM : I’m sorry for delaying you
***
ME : it’s okay sir, you asked of me
***
MR WISDOM : yes, it’s just that I want to ask about your mom’s health, I heard what happened to her
***
ME : she is getting better, thanks for your concern
***
MR WISDOM : and how are you coping with your beast side
***
ME : I’m getting use to it, and I can now control it ( i replied proudly )
***
MR WISDOM : that’s good, and about the beast, have you killed it?
***
ME : why are you asking
***
MR WISDOM : because it didn’t make appearance yesterday and day before,
that was the first time it will happen since the day you released it.
***
ME : {}( that was when my membrane sent a signal to me, Chris made mentioned that he can only weaken the beast but not kill it, could it be that it was the two wooden bullets he released into the beast body that has weaken the beast and render it powerless.
That must be the perfect explanation for the beast disappearance for the past two nights. ) I assured myself of my newly derived plan while thinking if I should come clean for Mr Wisdom,
can I really trust this man?
it was a question that that I really need someone to answer, maybe another supreme being who can decipher the true nature of human being.
Then I made the decision which I later regret.
***
Actually I haven’t kill the beast yet but someone helped me weakened it for a while
***
MR WISDOM : really, ( he exclaimed surprisingly ) who and how?
***
ME : ( my instinct was telling me to stop with the information for you now but I wasn’t ready to listen to it as I kept on BRINGING MY GRAVE NEARER ) His name is Chris and he is beast hunter, he shot the beast with a bullet which he claimed to be wooden bullet
***
MR WISDOM : Chris, a beast hunter!!! ( he exclaimed feeling unrelaxed)
***
ME : yeah, do you know him?
***
MR WISDOM : no, i don’t. but it’s a good news, he will also help in eliminating the beast
***
ME : yeah, you’re right, he is really helpful ( I replied happily ,which gat me wondering what was making me happy )
***
MR WISDOM : make sure you always inform about your progress concerning the beast and if you need any type of help, make sure you gat no clog hindering you from asking for my help
***
ME : okay, I’ll make sure I do that sir.
I’m already late for R S { Recreational Sport } and am sure Mrs Saltzman is going to skin me alive today
***
MR WISDOM : ( smirk ) funny guy, here ( he handed me letter ) give this to her and you are free
***
ME : thanks ( i collected the letter and walked magnificently out of his office )
**********************************************
*********After Ben’s Exit*******************
MR WISDOM : wow, so it was an hunter that shot the gun, the game is really getting interesting now. let see who wins at last.
But I hope this hunter doesn’t breach my plan ( he retorted laughing wildly )
**********************************************
*************back to Ben*********************
I walked magnificently back to class with the piece of letter in my hand, I wasn’t surprised not to meet anyone there, just the normal diagram that Mrs Saltzman usually draw on the board which will seem like meaningful rubbish to normal students that is not offering her course, before she takes us to the swimming pool for practical.
I was really good at swimming and the best student in her class, she so much like me and hate it when I miss her class, I’ve represented our school in some competitions and the lowest medal that I always come back with is silver,
Michael phelp is my role model, I really envy the guy, he started representing USA in Olympic from age 15 and the guy is even the only athlete that has the highest medal in Olympic ( 28 ).
My dream is to represent France in international competition especially Olympic and stop partaking in local competition but it seems impossible because their are many people that best me outside my school, I’ve tried but failed in two audition, so I was not accepted internationally.
***
I moved down to the dressing room and changed into my swimsuit .
I checked myself inside the mirror and saw that my abs has developed greatly, the swimsuit was kind of not sizing me but I forced it on.
***
As I got to the school swimming pool, I saw Victor giving me the kind of we are dead today look .
They were all wet which signifies that they had all swim.
***
**” Marseillaise ,get your damned a-s here “** Mrs Saltzman screamed at me which kind of triggered fear in me, tho she scream at other students but not me, I don’t blame her because that’s how all coach are and she has to show that she is tough even tho she is feminine.
I quickly ran to her with all the focus of all the students on me, there eye is of the pleading type and the message I was extracting from it is **” PLEASE SAVE US “**
**” where have you been since “**?
she fired at me which gat me confused what could have happened to her to make her this angry.
**” Mr Wisdom called me “** I replied her sternly
**” any clearance letter from him “**? she asked me in a tone which signifies that I was lying
irritated by her act, I acted arrogantly and wanted to deep my hand inside my pocket to fetch the letter but surprisingly, my pocket had gone missing.
what the hell, I’ve forgotten the letter inside the trousers I was wearing before I changed into my swimsuit.
I scratched my scalp as I tender the situation to her but she didn’t believe me.
***
**” now get into that f—–g water and perform
→b—-t stroke first
follows by
→side stroke
follows by
→elementary backstroke
follows by
→the. butterfly stroke
follows by
→back stroke
and end it with
→freestyle stroke in just a minute
***
**” are you for real “** I asked and she answered yes,
**” but you haven’t thought us that before, how can I combined all the skills in just a minute “** I asked angrily,
I thought those dummies over there ( stretching her hands to the other students including Becky and Victor ) and since you are not in school, I would have pardon you but since you decided to skip my class when you are also in school, I don’t care if you know how to do it or not. And if you fail it, no more swimming class for two weeks, all I will be treating you is essay.
Her condition for failure is very worse,
I can’t imagine being in R S class taking lectures only, it happened in our first year, then it was referred to as FPE ( Freshman Physical Education ) ,we failed her test and our punishment was a week of pure essay,
that single week felt like a year in hell and sure as hell, I knew that none of us that witnessed it then will like to experience it again, and two weeks for that.
she should just kill us.
without waiting for her shot, I dived into the swimming pool and started the combo, I was very surprised at my reflex, I already knew how to perform all the skills but I don’t know how to combine it all.
But I was surprised myself when I started combining the combo and in just 50 seconds, I performed it excellently,
As I got out of the water, everyone was very happy, I saw Victor and Becky giving me the thumbs up sign and winking at me.
Mrs Saltzman just stood there in awe of what just happened, she didn’t believe I can get it tho I was her best student.
She dismissed the class after praising me to brim.
***
That was the only course we were having that day so I decided to check on my mom before I go to Chris for my training.
***
I asked victor and Becky to join me in visiting her
Victor accepted to go with me to my mom and Becky said she’s going on an errand for her dad so she won’t be able to go
***
We quickly got on our bicycles and rode there.
When we got into the elevator ,
I started hearing someone screaming and hell yeah, the voice was that of my mom.
I felt uneasy and dashed out of the elevator as it opened and Victor was running behind me to catch up with me not knowing why I was running.
As I opened the Ward’s door, I saw my mom being lifted up with a long tongue that I traced to the mouth of my hot nurse ( Nurse Bianca ) with the scalpel I saw inside the ward yesterday in her hand.
Victor ran in and was very surprised at what he was seeing.
But I made it worse when I transformed and he fainted
To be continue…..
