💖 The Loverboys💖
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
‘Come on, Jeanne; you’re too slow. Does it really have to take you ages to get me a cu-p of coffee?’
Susan groused as I hurried with a cu-p of coffee to her.
‘‘And where are the headphones I asked for?’ Ivy asked, opening her palms.
‘Sorry, Ivy; but I couldn’t find them in the room’ I replied dazily, , tou-ching my forehead.
‘What? Have you gone blind? What do you mean you couldn’t find it?’ she groused.
‘Come on girls. Maybe the fact that she is going to the Alpha High School has suddenly made her blind’, their mom said and they laughed lightly.
‘I wonder why she insisted on going there. Does she think she will be able to win any of the lover boys?’ Ivy asked and they laughed again.
I bent my head and sniffed.
No, I couldn’t afford shedding a tear; not on a special day like this.
‘Enough of the jokes; I’ve warned you to st©p doing this’, I heard his voice and I smiled to see the only man I could call family.
Although, he wasn’t my biological family, he had insisted I call him dad. Whenever he’s around, his wife and daughters never get to bully me.
He climbe-d down the stairs into the sitting room and t©uçhed my hair.
‘Are you re-ady?’ he asked and I nodded with a smile and took my bag from the table.
I looked at his daughters and their faces were alre-ady swollen with rage.
I bent my head and walked out of the room with dad – Mr. Raymond.
Mr. Raymond is actually my adopted father. He told me he had found me lying close to the river banks four years ago and he had taken me to the hospital.
But when I regained consciousness, I lost my memories and couldn’t recall a single thing from my past. So, I had no idea where I [email protected]£ from.
Mr. Raymond had even put me up on TV but no one [email protected]£ for me. So, he took me in as his daughter but his wife and kids never accepted me for once. They all saw me as a nuisance and didn’t want to as-sociate with me.
His kids actually study abroad, but just come over for the long vacation.
I’m just a sad, lonely girl who wonders where her family might be and why they never [email protected]£ for her.
Well, thank God I fell into the hands of someone as kind as Mr. Raymond.
Right now, I’m going to Alpha High School and you wouldn’t believe the millions he spent just to get me admitted.
It’s actually one of the best schools in the country, but unfortunately, Mr. Raymond is a very busy person and he travels out of the country a lot. As a matter of fact, he will be leaving the country again by tomorrow, and that’s quite sad for me because, each time he isn’t around, his wife and kids make my life a living hell.
I got into the car with dad and sat at the back seat. Then, I let out a sweet wi-de smile.
For once, I had the opportunity to be happy about going to the Alpha High School.
It’s a school for only the rich;like, very rich and I only got lucky because Mr. Raymond is one of the rich.
I connected my headphones as my dad started the car.
Yeah, that’s me; I’m actually a music freak. I love singing with pas-sion.
I pla-yed one of my favorite songs as I closed my eyes, enjoying the song. It was “k!ssme again” by The Loverboys.
Okay, who are the love boys?
The Love Boys is the most popular band in the US, originally made up of five young, crazily handsome and sparingly wealthy boys – Theo, Alex, Carl, Daniel and Malcolm.
Wondering why I said “originally”?
Well, that’s because Theo is no longer with them. He unexplainably left the band four years ago, and since then, nob©dy has ever heard from him again.
He was actually the leader of the band, but since he left, Alex took over as the leader.
According to what, I heard, Alex and Theo were childhood friends and were both lovers of music and as a result, their parents teamed up and signed up with the Alpha Records and opened a band – The Love Boys.
Then Carl, Daniel and Malcolm who were also close friends of theirs back then, also joined the band.
So, the Love Boys started at a very young age and they were doing pretty well.
But, uncannily, things changed about them and it all started four years ago. Nob©dy knows exactly what happened, but we’re all sure something big must have transpired between them, especially Theo and Alex.
Theo uncannily left the band and since he left, Alex also changed. Alex was a happy flir-ty guy, but since Theo left, that happy personality of his died off, and he [email protected]£ a sad quiet introvert.
I even heard he was f0rç£d by his parents to take over as the band leader.
Another strange thing that happened since Theo left is that, all the girlfriends Alex ever had all ended up dead.
Yes, since Theo left, he’s had about two girlfriends and they all ended up dead and as a result, he’s been abstaining from the company of girls. He’s been trying as much as possible to avoid any contact with girls and I actually heard even in the Love Boy’s mansion, there are no female workers there; even their cook is a boy.
I really wonder what could have happened between him and Theo, and what could also be the cause of the death of the ladies he loved. Or, could it be just a coincidence? Or could there really be something or someone behind it? And why did it start happening after Theo left?
Well, it’s not like what happened st©pped Alex from being the ladies’ crush. The Love Boys were all charming, but Alex was the cutest, trust me, I [email protected] video every day.
But when Theo was around, I heard it was difficult ma-king a choice between him and Alex because they were both charming and breathtaking.
Trust me, if I were to choose between Theo and Alex, I wouldn’t know why to choose.
Too bad Theo left, but it’s a good thing Alex was still around to fill up the space. But, I’m still wondering why Theo left and where he is.
Will he ever come back?
‘We’re here’, my dad’s voice broke into my thoughts and I opened my eyes and discovered that we had alre-ady gotten to the Alpha High School.
Was this a school or a h0tel?
I [email protected]£ out of the car and stood like a statue looking around with amusement.
This building was magnificent. it looks prettier than it seems on TV and magazines. I can’t believe I’m actually here.
AHS – Alpha High School is owned by Alpha Records, the company where the Love Boys worked un-der.
People from outside the country travel down here just to attend AHS because they get to see their superstars almost every day.
I heard they Love Boys move around very freely over here and are only accompanied by the guards on rare occasions. But, I also heard that Alex is rarely seen.
He always isolates himself from everyone, and on most occasions, he doesn’t attend clas-ses. He had really turned out to be an introvert.
But whenever he comes around, they entire place is always set on ovation, and I also heard some female students even end up [email protected]
I hope I also get to meet face to face with him one day.
Dad held my hand as we headed for the Principal’[s office and I couldn’t st©p admiring the entire place. Securities were everywhere and pretty boys and girls could be seen walking in pairs and taking pictures.
Dad and I got to the principal’s office but at that time, he was kind of settling an issue between two parents and their kids. So, we were asked to wait outside.
We sat on the three-seater chair outside the office together with one other man and I just couldn’t wait to see the principal so that he’d as-sign me to my clas-s.
While we were seated there, three pretty ladies walked by and one of them had Alex’s name written on her hand.
Then, two other boys walked by and they were talking about Kimberly.
My role model!
She was my teacher at the Love girls – a female music band created from the Love Boys.
It was made up of eight girls and Kimberly Percival was they leader.
She’s actually my best song-writer and I love her so much.
I hope I also get to meet her here as well.
The meeting in the office was taking long and I was kind of getting impatient alre-ady.
I stood up and walked to the window in the pas-sage, taking a look outside. I was so beautiful.
I looked back at dad and he was busy with his [email protected]©p.
well, like I said, he’s a very busy person.
Then, I decided to take a look around. Yes, just around the pas-sage. I started walking and noticed the pas-sages were free of students. They were probably in clas-s.
I [email protected]£ to a staircase and sat by it bringing out a book from my bag, it was my song book.
I opened it and started writing new lyrics that [email protected]£ to my mind while I sat. I really love singing a lot, and I wish I would have an opportunity to explore it.
I was still writing in my song book when I heard a soft sound that caught my attention.
It seemed someone was pla-ying they keyboard.
I listened carefully and noticed it was coming from upstairs.
Who could it be?
It was so enchanting.
I stood up and slowly, I started climbing the stairs.
As I drew nearer, the sound got clearer and it kept bemusing me.
But just as I finished climbing the stairs, I saw a signboard that re-ad:
But there was someone in. Why does it have to be restricted?
I stood still and the sound of the keyboard kept enchanting me.
Only an expert can [email protected] good.
It was a slow emotional song and I wondered who it could it be.
There was a big room ahead and the door was slightly open and it was obvious the sound was coming from there.
I looked around and couldn’t find anyone.
Then, creepily, I walked pas-s the signboard and entered the room.
Like I said earlier, it was big and at the entrance were just scattered books, shelves ,canters, cartoons and papers. It looked more like a storage room.
I walked further and finally, I found the expert. Hah!
I smiled and looked at him and…wait!
Oh, my God!
I quic-kly ran and hid behind a canter.
Oh, my God!
Am I dreaming or what? am I really looking at Alex with my ba-re eyes?
The leader of the Loverboys?
It’s a good thing he was backing me, else, I’d have been caught.
No wonder it was a restricted area.
He wanted to be alone.
He always wants to be alone.
Then that means I shouldn’t be here. If I get caught, I’m definitely going to get punished.
But at that moment, I couldn’t help but admire him.
Despite the fact he was backing me, I could still manage to have a side view of his face.
He was so charming and cute.
He had a tattoo on his n£¢k and a diamond ring on his ear.
Now I un-derstand why the sound was so emotional.
All the songs he led have always been emotional.
All the ladies have been dying for him. But too bad they only get to see him from a distance or on TV since he doesn’t like as-sociating with girls anymore.
I heard it’s kind of made him cold hearted to some extent.
I wonder what really happened to them.
Suddenly, he st©pped pla-ying and I wondered why.
I was kind of enjoying it.
“Do you realise this is a restricted area?” He asked and I swear, my heart st©pped beating.
Does he know I’m here?
I [email protected] and turned around in fear, leaning my back on the canter.
How did this happen?
(What happened to them?)
By: Faith Lucky.
Jeanne’s Pov continues:
I heard him t©uçh the keys again and just then, his phone started ringing.
I’ll be there” he said on the phone.
His voice was so soft as he spoke and it made me drool more on him.
But at this moment, I was scared.
What is he going to do to me?
I heard him stand and started walking to the door which was towards my direction.
Surprisingly, he walked pas-s me and didn’t even turn to take a look at me.
Is he really such an introvert?
I watched in surprise as he walked to the door, but just when he was about going out, something like car keys fell from his hands and I exhaled.
He’s definitely going to turn around to pick it up.
My heartheart skipped as he bent and turned to pick it up and boom!
That was it.
We made the eye contact
Is this for real?
Jesus; he was so heavenly cute; cuter than he looked on TV and magazines.
Oh, my God! I could ha-rd ly breathe.
He had this long baby lashes and a dark curly hair that flopped across his forehead.
Even though I only had to look at him for a short time, I could swear he was the most handsome guy I’d ever seen.
He stared at me briefly and quic-kly took his eyes away like he had seen no one important.
And finally, he left the room.
I placed my hand on my che-st and took in a de-ep breath.
Gosh; that was so close.
I can’t believe he didn’t even react to my pres£nce there.
But it’s still a miracle to know I was in the same room with loverboy Alex.
I left the room and got outside and looked left and right to see if I could still get a glimpse of him.
But unfortunately, he was gone.
I stood at the pas-sage for a while, still recalling the whole thing.
I smiled when I remembered his soft voice that had spoken to me:
‘Do you realise this is a restricted area?’
I wish I could hear him speak again.
I finally took the stairs and returned to the office and there I met my dad in alre-ady, talking with the principal.
“Jeanne, where have you been? I’ve been looking for you” he said as I took a seat beside me.
“Sorry dad. I was just taking a look around” I replied and turned to the principal who was a chubby handsome man.
“Good morning sir” I greeted and checked the header on his desk for a name.
It was Mr Mark Clarkson.
“Good morning, dear. Your dad here has alre-ady told me everything about you.
Just fill this form over here and you’ll be as-signed to your new clas-s” he said and slided the form to me on the table and I collected it and filled in my details.
“I’m sure you have the school map on your school alre-ady. But I’ll be as-signing someone to show you around later in the day.
Welcome to Alpha High School” he concluded with a warm smile and brou-ght out his hand for a handshake and I smiled and collected it.
“Thank you sir” I replied and stood up with dad.
“Thank you very much Mr Clarkson. I really appreciate the effort” dad told him and exchanged a handshake with him and we left the office afterwards.
“Make sure you stay out of trouble, Jeanne. And be attentive in clas-s, okay?”he told me as we held hands and walked out of the pas-sage.
Then when we got to the balcony, I st©pped and [email protected] him.
“Thank you dad. Thank you so much for this” I said happily and he patted my back.
“Just make me proud okay?” He said softly and I nodded and unlocked from the hvg.
“Now hurry to clas-s so you don’t be late for lectures” he said and I smiled and waved at him and left.
I opened the school map on my phone and followed the direction to my new clas-sroom.
It was very big and pretty and filled with young good looking boys and girls.
Well, all the students in Alpha High were undoubtedly rich because Alpha High doesn’t give out scholarsh!ps.
So, there were no rooms for commoners.
Well, it’s a good thing I had someone like Mr Raymond to back me up.
I nervously walked into the clas-sroom as all the students stared at me.
I kept my gaze low and found anan empty seat on the third row.
wow! I can’t believe I was in Alpha High.
I wonder what grade the loverboys were in. I wish we could have the same grade.
After a short while, a teacher [email protected]£ in and all the students settled down.
“Good morning, Mrs Smith” few of the students greeted as she walked up to the front of the clas-s and kept her books on the table.
“Good morning, students. How was the weekend?” She replied and asked.
Some of the students chorused a reply while some chuckled.
“Okay, okay. However it was” Mrs Smith replied.
“By the way, we’re having a new student in our midst today.
Miss Jeanne, could you step out for a brief introduction, plea-se?” She said, staring at me and I took in a de-ep breath and stood up.
I sauntered to the front of the clas-s and turned, facing the students and now I had the opportunity to take a proper look at them.
They all looked rich and charming and flir-ty too.
“Your name, miss” Mrs Smith said and I shook my head.
“Uhn…I’m Jeanne Raymond” I replied a little shyly.
“Okay. Jeanne. Welcome to Alpha High. You can have your seat” she said to me and I smiled and returned to my seat.
She commenced teaching and after that, we had two more subjects and it was break time.
Students started walking out in pairs and I also stood up and thought of going to the canteen.
Hm. It seems all the students here are just bu-mptious as none of them even cared to pay any attention to me.
I took my books from the table and was about going out of the clas-s when a pretty lady [email protected]£ in and walked up to me.
“Hi. You must be Jeanne, right?” She asked and I nodded, Wondering who she was.
She was chewing a gum and looked clas-sic.
“Okay. I’m Carissa. And I’ve been as-signed by Mr Mark to show you around the school” she said and I flin-ched.
Such a clas-sic girl showing me around the school?
“Uhm…you don’t have to worry about that miss.” I tried speaking.
“I can just make use of the…”
“Oh, plea-se; don’t in any way feel like I’m being stressed out or something. It’s [email protected] of my course and will only add to my G.P when I’m done. So, it’s for my own good” she cut in and I sighed and nodded.
“Come with me” she said lowly and started walking out of the clas-s and I followed her behind.
She looked and sounded strict, but normally, she was a jovial person.
She took me to the vital places in the school – the sports hall, the lab, the [email protected], the bookstore and other interesting places.
“This is the sports hall.” She told me when we entered the enormous sports hall.
It was very big and had so many sporting materials.
“Our sport days are Wednesdays” she added and I just nodded and looked around.
“Uhm…do the loverboys also come down for sports on Wednesdays?” I asked and she looked at me and smiled.
“Everyb©dy always wants them to. But unfortunately, they only come down once in a blue pretty moon” she replied and I smiled and nodded.
“You’re also crushing on them, right?” She asked as we left the sports hall.
I blu-shed in a smile.
“Every b©dy loves the loverboys” I replied.
“Oh; that’s true.
Why don’t we gr-ab lunch together?” She asked and I hesitated for a while.
“Uh…okay. sure” I replied and she smiled and led me to the canteen.
The canteen was very big and pretty and was filled up with students.
But it wasn’t too crowded or noisy.
Carissa and I found a suitable seat and she left to order our meal and returned with a big tray.
“What grade are the loverboys?” I asked as I took my own plate of banana split. .
“Oh; they’re actually in your grade” she replied and my eyes beamed.
“Yes they don’t always attend clas-ses” she cut in, knowing what I wanted to say.
“Why?” I asked despondently.
“Well, that’s because they don’t like mixing up with others, at least not all the time.
But loverboys like Carl, Daniel and Malcolm do attend clas-ses a little often. But someone like Alex…gosh! It’s only once in a pink moon. And that pink moon’s actually when the clas-s is being handled by Mr Leonard”.
I chuckled and looked at her.
“Mr Leonard?” I asked .
“Yes. He’s the further maths teacher. He’s the only one who can actually make Alex attend clas-ses. That’s because he’s very strict and ha-rd and doesn’t tolerate any [email protected] treatment. He believes every student must be treated equally. And as a result, he’s Alex’s worst enemy” she replied and I scoffed.
I really can’t wait for the maths clas-s.
According to the time table, we’d be having further maths by tomorrow.
Hopefully, Alex will be there.
“It’s amazing, right? Attending the same school with the loverboys” she asked and I smiled and nodded.
“Uhm…Carissa” I called.
“Can I ask you a question?”
“Sure. What is it?”
I cleared my throat a little.
“Do you have any idea what happened between Alex and Theo?” I asked.
What do you think might have happened between Alex and Theo?
