THE INNOCENT WITCH
Six days went by and i didn’t have any
dreams/meeting. Six days of
daily mornin and night devotions. I had
gone with my sister to her boutique for five days. My life seemed
normal, and the waec lesson was
starting the next day.
The morning i started the waec lesson
was not eventful. I just went
to the store . Then by 3:30pm my sister took me to attend the lesson
as i wasn’t familiar with the town.
After my sister got me registered, she left
me there after giving me
T-fare to go home.
I was nervous about going into the class so i stood at the entrance
of the class for a while. I was just
standing there when i felt some
one’s hands on my shoulder. I turned and
saw a guy behind me. He was
still holding my shoulder, and he was smiling. That smile did
something to my tummy. It was like
hundreds of butterflies were
dancing in my stomach.
“i am sorry, but you were blocking the
entrance. You seemed lost in thoughts” he said “by the way i am
Kevin”.he said as he stretched his
other hand towards me and watched me.
He was handsome, tall, had broad
shoulders and a stunning smile.
Still, i didn’t reply, i never had any illusions in my mind that i
would have a happy ending because of
all I’ve done. So instead of
replying, i walked into the class. His hand
fell off my shoulder and i
missed his touch instantly. I walked to an empty seat at the back of
the class and sat down. I
didn’t know if and when Mr ogoh and his
crew would act again but i
didn’t want to befriend anybody. I won’t
take any chances that could hurt innocent people again.
Kelvin didn’t look offended that i ignored
him. He just kept
smiling at me even when he walked to his
seat which coincidentally was
behind mine. Throughout the class that day, i felt his
presence behind me. I
tried not to look behind me at him but
after an hour of trying, i gave
into temptation and looked behind me.
He was sitting back in his chair looking at me with a big grin on his face
like he knew i couldn’t
resist looking at him. I turned forward and
The classes fled by and soon it was over.
And i only looked thrice!. That was a big achievement. Kelvin was
like a magnet. As soon as the
last teacher let the class, i pack my books
with lightning speed and
rushed out of the class.
I only slowed down when i got to a street junction.
I had told my sister that i knew my way
back home but now i was
confuse. Every where looked identical. I
tried to concentration and
remember the right way but then some body touched my shoulder.
It was already dark so i thought maybe it
was a robber but when i
turned, i saw it was kelvin and his stupid
smile. Ok not stupid but
still, what’s with this guy and my shoulder?.
“hey mystery girl, you left your pen by
your desk”he said, lifting a
pen up to show me. I didn’t want to talk to
him but i just had to ask.
“mystery girl?” “yea, you didn’t tell me your name when i
told you mine earlier so i
decided to call your mystery girl”
“you know that’s not funny right?..and
that’s not my pen”i told him
while looking around trying to figure out which way to go.
“i know…I just wanted to talk to you..you
just keep walking or
running away from me”
“well that is because i dnt want to talk to
you, i don’t want to know you so please stop talking to me, so i can
figure out my way home”
“wait, you are lost?..don’t worry your
prince charming is here to
rescue you. I’ll take you home. I know i
am kind.No need to thank me”he smirked
“i dnt need your help, just go away”
“look, i get it, you don’t want to talk to me,
but please just let me
take you home, its already late, you could
get in trouble” he had a point so i gave him my sister’s address.
He walked me to our gate and before i
could thank him, he walked away.
