THE INNOCENT WITCH
The next day, i was so excited to go for
the lessons. I knew, i
should not get close to kelvin but i just
couldn’t help it. He was goodlooking, kindof funny and kind. So i
decided, i could just look
and admire him without getting close.
At the lesson that day, i got a seat mate.
Her name was Ada and she
was nice and jovial. She was the kind of girl i could befriend if my
life was normal. She tried talking to me
but i just shut her off and
pretended to be engrossed in the lesson.
Meanwhile my attention was on
kelvin. He didn’t seem to be paying attention either. He was really
focused on what he was drawing on a
paper. I couldn’t really see what
he was drawing though.
At the end of the lesson, Ada asked me
where i lived so we could walk home together. I thought of an excuse to
use to avoid going wit her
but before i could voice it out, some one
answered for me.
“she already has a walking home buddy”.
I turned to look at kelvin and he smiled at me. The pencil he was using
to draw was sitting on his
ear and he still looked good.
Ada looked to me for confirmation and i
nodded my head.
“alright, see you tomorrow Racheal, and you artist boy” she said as
she walked away.
“Racheal” kelvin said, testing my name on
his lips and that made me
shudder. The sound of my name on his
lips made goose bumps to break out on my hands.
I rubbed the goose bumps away as i
walked away from him.
“hey, wait for me, we are supposed to be
going home together right?”
“goodnight kelvin” “come on, you already told your friend, so
from now on, we walk home
together. Or else you want her to know
you are avoiding her”he said,
as he caught up with me.
“okay, fine… I just have to endure walking home with you every day
for 3 months…such a hardship” i replied,
trying to sound reluctant.
But the truth was, i did want to walk with
“yay!” he said as he grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the class
and it felt like electricity was running
through where our hands were
connected. He never let go of my hands
till we got to my gate. This
time, i thanked him. He just smiled and said “anything for you,
This made me blush and he laughed at
I have never thought of my self as
beautiful. I never even paid any attention to how i looked but hearing him
call me beautiful made me
want to be beautiful for him. So the next
day, i made a little effort
and i applied my sister’s pink lip gloss. He
noticed and commented on how pretty my lips were.
From that day, i always applied the lip
gloss, just to see him glance
at my lips whenever he talked to me
while we walked home together
every night. Ada still kept on being friendly. She
teased me about kelvin, but i
told her, kelvin and i were not even
friend. Two weeks later she
invited me to her birthday party. I told her
i couldn’t attend but she still gave me the invite card.
I asked kelvin if he would attend and he
said he would, if i agreed
to go with him. I laughed it off and told
him, he better go so he
could find another girl to pest. He just squeeze my hands and grinned.
The thought of him finding another girl
left a bitter taste in my
mouth but it woul be for his own good’ i
