“What? No, I can’t do that!” Rio shook his head negatively.
I scrunched up my face and rolled my eyes at him.
Like seriously, I know he was gonna object but not so blunt like this.
I had whispered the plan into his ears and as I stared at his face which didn’t agree to what I’ve said, I frowned my face ha-rder.
What’s with this guy huh? An opportunity for him to be closer to Delaney and he’s refusing such opportunity and offer.
But I ain’t backing down. I’ll definitely persuade him and if he doesn’t agree, then I have another plan.
“Why Rio? It’s a lifetime opportunity for you to become closer or who knows, an item with Delaney.
Why are you rejecting such offer?” I scoffed and folded my arms un-der my b©©b s and scanned him with eyes.
“Really Chelsea? You want me to frame Delaney because of what exactly?” He rolled his eyes.
“It’s also an opportunity for you to become closer to Delaney and I’m doing you good by telling you to agree with the plan.
We are both helping ourselves.” I smiled lightly and walked closer to him, covering the remaining space in between us.
I placed my hand on his che-st and used my other hand to [email protected] his tie.
“plea-se Rio, I know you like f^cking girls and I have them re-ady for you and they’re re-ady to give you the best s^x styles – only if you’d agree to the plan.” I li-cked myl-ips and win-ked at him.
He pushed me lightly and sighed de-eply.
“Do you really think low of me that much? If I want to f^ck some girls, I know where I can get them and it’s never ha-rd getting tons of girls to satisfy me.
plea-se Chelsea, leave me out of this.
I don’t want to be a [email protected] of your so-called plan. I can’t frame Delaney and I won’t do it.” He scoffed and turned around to leave.
“plea-se Rio, you’ve got to help me out.” I begged calmly.
“I’m sorry Chelsea. And plea-se keep me out of this.
Don’t worry, I won’t tell Xavier since the plan wouldn’t be carried out.” He said and walked out of the Lab.
I huffed ridiculously with my both hands on my [email protected]!st as I watched him leave.
Seriously? He’s proving stubborn right?
Well, then I’ll have to go with the second plan and Rio is gonna be [email protected] of it, without his knowledge and cons£nt.
“So, I’m gonna teach you how to construct your words properly. The letter you wrote the other day… It wasn’t impressive, really.
I could ha-rd ly un-derstand what you wrote.” I chuckled while Laney gave me a pla-yful glare.
“Really? And you didn’t even let me know. I thought I constructed it well.” She pouted.
“Okay, that aside anyways, let’s start alre-ady.” I said, bringing out my books from my backpack and placing them on the desk.
“Firstly…” I started while she listened with ra-pt attention.
“Wow Delaney! You’re really a fast learner.” I commended.
Delaney smiled shyly and bent her head.
“Okay! So, that will be all for today.” I sighed and dropped my pen on the desk while Laney grinned happily.
“Hah! The teaching was fun today but I’m so famished right now.” She yawned lightly and stretched out her b©dy.
“Yeah, me too. Let’s go downstairs alre-ady, I’m sure dinner would be re-ady alre-ady.” I said, alre-ady on my feet.
She nodded her head and stood up.
We made our way downstairs and mom was just about coming to meet us and since we were alre-ady on our way to the dinning room, the three of us started there together.
“Hera, what is the problem? You’ve been gloomy all day.” Emily sighed and sat down beside me on the be-d.
“Yeah… I’ve been thinking all day and there are so many questions going throu-gh my mind and I haven’t gotten any answers and it’s ma-king me worried.” I sighed despondently.
“What is it? You can talk to me.” She spoke calmly.
“I nee-d to find someone – Delaney, because she stole something very valuable and it can lead to disasters if not taken from her and given to rightful owner.
I don’t know where she lives and I’ve got no time, I nee-d to get it from her as soon as possible.” I lamented.
“What did she steal? And why’s it so important?” She asked, clearly lost.
“A n£¢klace — she stole a n£¢klace, not just an ordinary n£¢klace.
My mother, the queen of Marazona where I [email protected]£ from, nee-ds the n£¢klace so badly else, she’d loose the throne.” I explained sadly.
“Sincerely, I don’t entirely un-derstand what you un-derstand, but you don’t have to worry, you’ll find her.” She smiled and stro-ked my hair affectionately.
“You know what? Why don’t you accompany me to the Maddox mansion so you could get to meet the son properly.
You can make friends with him and with his wealth, I think he’ll be able to help you find this Delaney and you’ll be able to get back the n£¢klace.” She smiled and win-ked at me.
My heart jumped in excitement – the son might help me in finding Delaney only if I just become friends with him.
That would be great!
This is the best news I’ve heard since I got here!
“When do we go?” I asked enthusiastically.
“Now, if you want. I bet he’ll be home by now.” She beamed.
“Really? Then, what are we waiting for, let’s get going alre-ady!”

Emily did some magic on my face that I looked completely different.
I was awed as I stared at my self on the mirror.
Wait! Is this really me?
I looked so pretty and my hair was styled beautifully.
“Wow! I look really pretty.” I beamed happily as I admired my face on the mirror.
“Yeah, I want you to look extremely pretty and that was why I took my time to make you look good.
I’m very sure the son would love pretty girls.” Emily smiled at me throu-gh the mirror.
I blu-shed and t©uçhed my face ; still feeling awed.
“Okay, let’s get you dressed so we’ll look even more pretty and the son would surely wouldn’t be able to take his eyes of you.” She flashed me a smile and made me stand up from the chair.
She went to my wardrobe and started ransacking throu-gh.
I sighed and watched her scatter my wardrobe, looking for whatever she wants.
After minutes of searching throu-gh, she finally pu-ll-ed out a cloth that I didn’t know its name.
“This would look great on you!” She exclaimed happily, showing me the cloth.
After dressing up, I looked at myself on the mirror and smiled for the umpteenth time.
Wow! I look really great!
The cloth I wore fitted me so perfectly and brou-ght out my curves.
Now, I look like the princess I am.
“Wow Hera, you look absolutely stunning.” Emily complimented with a smile.
I nodded my head and smiled shyly at her.
“Now, let’s get going alre-ady.”
She held my hands in hers and we both left my room.
I grinned happily as Xavier and I alighted from the car.
His hands were tucked in inside his trou-ser pockets as we made our way into the school compound.
Students screamed happily as usual while Xavier just ignored them as if they weren’t chanting his name.
He walked majestically while I kept my head bent, feeling bashful as usual.
Chelsea walked up to us with a smile and entwined their hands together.
She flashed Xavier a charming smile but Xavier ignored her and I could tell she felt really hurt because of the way he ignored her but she covered it up with a faux smile.
I chuckled mockingly but Chelsea’s ha-rd glare on me made me keep shut and pretend as if I hadn’t made any sound seconds ago.
I know her apologies to me weren’t sincere but I had to [email protected]
She isn’t genuine and I don’t like her. She’s good at pretending and I’m never going to fall for her fake lies and pretence.
I had told Xavier that she had apologized and they had settled whatever dispute they had before.
Chelsea was so happy because she was back to being clingy to Xavier and now as I think about it, it’s really irritating.
“So Xavier, do you have someone in mind as your prom [email protected]? Prom is just few weeks away from now and every single students are waiting for you to choose your prom [email protected]” Chelsea smiled sweetly as we walked in the hallway that leads to the clas-sroom.
“Yeah, I know. I haven’t found anyone yet.” He shrugged plainly.
Chelsea pout and tung on his arm pla-yfully.
“You have to choose a [email protected] Xavier.” She whined.
“I’ll choose whenever I’m re-ady and I’ve found the right one that deserve to be my prom [email protected]£.” He replied and rolled his eyes.
I mentally hissed as I listened to them.
She’s just like a pest!
“Okay Xavier.” She pouted. And the rest of the walk to the clas-sroom was quiet with just the sound of our shoes on the floor.
“Grandma, are you okay? You look pale.” I asked grandma and placed the back of my palm on her forehead.
“Jesus!” I screamed and quic-kly re-moved my hand from her forehead as her temperature was high.
It literally burned the back of my palm.
“You’re burning up grandma!” I panicked.
“It’s nothing Alicia, it’s just a little fever but don’t worry, I’ll be fine.” She smiled sadly and t©uçhed my cheek.
“Grandma! You don’t look fine to me! Have you taken any drug?” I asked worriedly.
“Yeah, but that was in the morning.” She shrugged.
“Are you for real? Geez grandma!” I sighed and placed my hand on my forehead and paced worriedly in the room.
“St©p panicking okay, I’ll be fine.” Grandma said softly, her voice ba-rely audible.
She got down from her be-d and started towards the toilet.
“I want to pee.” She smiled lightly, holding the walls for support because she was weak.
I tried to support her but the next thing I knew was that, grandma [email protected] on the floor.
“What’s wrong with my mother?” Mom asked the doctor worriedly as we sat in the doctors office.
“Well…” The doctor cleared his throat and adjusted his glas-ses to the bridge of his nose and darted his eyes from me to mom.
Mom looked rather impatient as she stared curiously at the doctor.
“Well, she has hepatitis and because she wasn’t brou-ght when it was still in it’s early stage, it developed into hepatitis B and now, she nee-ds to un-dergo a liver transplant.” The doctor sighed.
“What!” Mom skrie-ked in dismay.
“But grandma didn’t act like she was sick all these while. Why didn’t she tell us that she was sick?” I asked, clearly taken aback by the doctors suddenly outbur-st.
“Okay, so doctor, how much is the surgical bill?” Mom asked.
“What! That is approximately 304, 400 thousand naira! How do we get such amount of money!” Mom [email protected] out in shock.
