(She’s too Perfect)
By: Faith Lucky.
I stared at them in surprise.
Huh? What could be wrong?
“Miss?” He called again and I blinked rapidly.
“Sorry…but why exactly do you need me? What’s wrong?” I asked and he turned to look at his partner.
Few of the contestants were already sparing glances at us.
“You don’t have to worry about a thing ma’am, its nothing serious. We just…”
He was suddenly interrupted by the presence of one of the coordinators.
“Is there a problem?” She asked, looking at the two men.
“Of course not, ma’am. We just wanted to have a word with…the veiled dancer. Its more like an interview” the second one replied and i flinched.
Huh? Just an interview? But the way they had approached me, it didn’t sound like they were coming for an interview.
“Oh! Is that so?” The coordinator exclaimed.
“So…what station are you from?” She asked and I noticed they twitched.
“You know what? Never mind. We’ll just wait till she’s done dancing” the second man replied and before the coordinator could say any other thing, they left.
Huh? What the hell was that?
The coordinator looked at me.
“Are you alright?” She asked and I nodded lightly.
She stared into my face for a long time, probably imagining what I’d look like.
“Just be careful, okay?’
After a long while, it finally got to my turn to dance.
I sat at the VIP table and entertained my eyes as the different dancers performed incredibly.
Most of them were really great, but some were…quite unfortunate.
I looked around but couldn’t find any trace of Noah. Where could he be? I was pretty sure he wouldn’t miss this for anything in the world. So, why isn’t he here?
After a long while, the crazy dancer was called upon and it gladdened my heart.
The stage lights went dim as she came out of the curtains, her face halfly covered, but her appearance and physique completely killing.
Gosh! I pray the boys will be able to execute their plans. I really couldn’t wait to get this lady all to myself. Its gonna mean a lot to me.
There was an ovation at first as she entered, but the ovation cooled off after a while and a song came up for her – perfect enough.
It was just like magic – the way she danced to it. It was something I’d never seen.
Gosh! How did she get to be such a great dancer?
I sat in my car and watched the whole performance from my phone. No other dance interested me, but just Maxine. And when it had gotten to her turn, I couldn’t help but feel elated.
Geez! She’s got a great talent. In my whole life, I’ve never experienced
She danced as tho it was ballet, but at some point, she’d put in a different step.
I smiled and leaned on the car seat.
Her talent was driving me nuts. Thank goodness I got to discover her identity in time. I can’t believe someone with such talent had been treated like a slave by her own family. No wonder she had to make use of a veil.
I shook my head and continued watching in amusement and suddenly, Father’s words replayed in my head.
As soon as I was done dancing, I left.
Well, that had been Noah’s instructions.
He didn’t want me to mingle with others in order to protect my identity.
Well, I guess I really like the idea of putting on a veil. It made me unique…
The men I had come with were already waiting for me at the entrance and they led me out to the car. As expected, all eyes were revolving around me but I tried as much as possible to avoid their gaze
Oh! And the “interview” men – funny I didn’t get to see them again.
We got into the car and as soon as we were all in, the driver took off
After a short drive, I met Noah at the junction I had left him and I felt so relieved seeing him.
“Thank you” I muttered to the men as I left the car and went over to join Noah.
“Welcome” he said and I just smiled and sat next to him in the car.
Gosh! At last.
“You were awesome” he added and I flushed.
“Thank you sir” I replied shyly, playing with the tip of my shirt.
“Noah” he said.
“You call me Noah”.
And the driver took off.
As soon as we got home, I went straight to the room to shower so I could have some rest. I didn’t know of Maxine, but I wasn’t hungry.
I spent a long time in the bathroom, enjoying the cold water. And when I was done, I dried the water from my body and reached for my pyjamas.
I was about laying on the bed when I just decided to check up on Maxine from the computer and there I found her room empty. She wasn’t in.
I was about walking away when the door of her bathroom suddenly opened and I spotted her coming in, having a towel tied to her body.
Oh! So, she was taking her bath.
I fell on the chair behind me and watched her.
She was quite pretty, you know? Despite the fact she just finished wetting her body, the beauty was still there.
I smiled and watched her as she stood in front of the mirror and packed her hair.
And next, she held the tip of her towel and tried taking it off.

I quickly shut the system and closed my eyes.
Geez! What the hell was i doing??
I hit my head and laughed.
I can’t believe I almost fell to the temptation of having a peep at her. Thank goodness I didn’t do it.
Although…it was kinda tempting.
I smiled and leaned back on my chair and after a little while, decided to open the system again.
I opened it slowly, step by step and boom! It showed up
But she was already done dressing and was sitting on the bed, working on a book.
I watched her for a little while. I wonder what she’s doing.
I finally shut the system and went to lie on the bed to sleep
“Damn it!!” I cursed and kicked the wall.
“What the hell is wrong with you? I gave you a simple task, yet you couldn’t even do it?” I yelled to those jobless people un front of me.
“It was really difficult, sir. The securities were too tight and forcing our way around her would’ve caused a fight which we weren’t ready for. We’re sorry” the leader among them apologized, making me more angry.
Damn it! I really needed to see that lady! Why couldn’t they carry out the job?
“We promise to put in more effort next time” he further said and I glared at him.
“No” I huffed.
“I want you to do something else for.me.
“My brother – I want you to beat him up. Can you do that?” I asked and they looked at each other, surprised.
“You…you mean Mr Noah?” Another asked.
“Yes – Noah. I want you to attack him and give him the beating of his life. I just need him to feel a little of the pains he’s caused me. Can you do that?” I asked angrily and they nodded.
I woke up the next morning, feeling a little excited. Although, I couldn’t tell why.
I reached for the remote and turned on the TV in the room.
Oh my geeeeee
My face was all over the news
I mean…the veiled face, tho. But it was me!
They were talking about my performance the previous night!
📺And once again, the crazy dancer’s left a lot of people speechless with her incredible performance from last night. According to many, none of the contestants danced perfectly like her as there was something strange and magical in her dance steps” the reporter announced.
I covered my mouth with my palms to prevent myself from screaming.
Oh, my God! Its unbelievable!
I checked other channels and the same thing was going on.
📺The big question is: Who’s the Crazy Dancer?” The reporter on one of the channels asked and my cheeks turned red.
Geez! I wonder what the reactions would be when I finally reveal my face
I checked for more news to see if the lucky contestants had been announced but negative.
They were yet to announce those that made it to the next stage and it made me really nervous.
Well, with the news going on around me, I could possibly be among, right?
I decided to leave the bed to do something else and as soon as I stood up, my eyes caught the window and I flinched at what I saw.
I drew closer to have a look and confirmed it was true.
There were policemen standing outside with Noah – and my uncle was among.
Oh my God!!
I was trying to get a coffee from the kitchen when one of the maids showed up and told me some men wanted to see me.
“They’re waiting outside, sir” she added and left and I wondered who they could be.
I sipped from my coffee and kept it on the kitchen, then went ahead to meet the men afterwards and…oh!
What a surprise!
Maxine’s uncle and some police men.
I paused by the door but finally shook my head and moved closer to them.
“Good morning, Mr Noah” one of them greeted but I didn’t reply immediately
I scrutinized them and stared keenly at the mischievous uncle.
“Good morning, officer. How may I help you?” I asked with my hand in my trouser pocket and he brought out his I.D.
“I’m officer Carl. And you’ve been accused of the illegal abduction of the young niece of Mr Richard here. We’re here to take her away and you’ll have to come with us to the station” he said levelly and I scoffed.
I exhaled deeply and took a step closer.
“Officers”, I called, looking at the uncle instead.
“Before you take Maxine away, you’ll have to kill me”.
What happens between Noah and the police?
