THE UNPREDICTED LOVE
Mr Anuma was known to be a teacher that explore students with grammars and good discipline. He had an average height with a big stomach. On his head was no hair and his shoes had no comparison.
He stood in front of his office spacing out with his hands in his pocket. He wore a big brown trouser and a long sleeve shirt which he tocked in. There were flowers in front of the office giving it a perfect beauty.
Students hung around at different angles of the school premises, though they appeared in Mr Anuma’s eyes but he wasn’t seeing any of them because he was lost in thought. But he suddenly realised himself to the voice of a familiar student who greeted him. He turned and looked at him.
“Wisdom!” he called and adjusted his eyeglass.
Wisdom wore a correct uniform of white and green. He never hesitated to tock-in properly and combed his hair. He had an attractive complexion which drives girls crazy making them to have fantasies about him before going to bed each night.
“Morning, Sir” he greeted Mr Anuma again smiling seriously.
“You look absolutely exquisite in your uniform”
Wisdom scratched his head for the unexpected grammar.
“You know what, Wisdom?” Mr Anuma continued. “I don’t want you to expostulate on the obstreperous students disturbing this school this morning because that shows you’ve deviated from your responsibilities”
“Thank you, Sir”
“No, the response isn’t efficacious. You should be apologizing”
“Oh, I’m sorry sir”
“You may go, now”
Wisdom smiled out after apologizing for what he didn’t know about.
“Na me carry my problem come greet this man this morning oh. MM. I for just waka pass. Now he has finished me with grammar” he thought in pigin English as he walked towards the junior section.
He could see students doing their morning duties and other senior students like him hanging around with their friends-male and female. Many admired and greeted him, especially Jennifer who had been looking for a way to capture his heart. She was with her two friends, Calista and Melody under a palm tree discussing about their previous holidays. They were on a green skirt and white long sleeve shirts. They plaited their hair which fell on one side of their cheek. Anybody who sees them will think they are sister due to how they relate with one another.
Melody could see how lustfully Jennifer was staring at Wisdom.
“O-girl take it easy oh!” she exclaimed.
“Don’t mind her, she behaves as if she hasn’t seen a boy before” Calista added before Jennifer turned to them.
“You won’t understand how i feel whenever i see him” she said with a low voice and her friends stared at her.
“How i wish he feels the same way for me” she added.
“Come on, girl! You can’t strip yourself so low to him” Melody said.
“I’m ready to ask him out”
“Jeez!” Calista exclaimed. “Don’t even try such a thing!”
“But i love him!”
“Love gbakwa uko!” Melody shouted angrily and dragged a palm leave down. She began to plug them off one after the other.
Jennifer still wanted to pour out her feelings but the sound of the bell put back the words into her mouth.
“Hey, go to the assembly ground!” Wisdom’s voice echoed from a distance…
Mrs Desmond, Tochi’s mother was at the backyard of her local house draining water from a drum when Tochi came out. She wore oversize skirt and a black top without a bra. Her b—-t dangled when she jumped down the stairs. Her hair was unkept and on her feet were bathroom slippers. She looks beautiful but her dirt overshadowed her beauty.
“Good morning, mama” she began to scratch her butt.
The mother brought out her head from the drum and turned.
“I thought you have gone to school. I have already talked to the principal and he said you can start school”
“You mean Winners International school?”
“Okay, mama!” she rejoiced and rushed into the bathroom.
Student gathered on the assembly ground. They sang and prayed waiting for the principal to come and addressed them. But before then, the senior prefect, Wisdom climbed up looking charming. Jennifer’s heart melted into her stomach.
“Hey!” Mr Anuma shouted at a student from a distance and all their concentration went there expecting to hear the next grammar that will come out from his mouth.
“Your voluminous skirt should be weeny. Then after your punishment, you explain to me unequivocally why it is so!” he completed and all the students on the assembly ground laughed. Even Wisdom couldn’t help it.
“Silence please” he said and all attention was given to him.
He continued, “As we wait for the principal to come up, i will like to use this opportunity to welcome you back to a new term…”
“Welcome too!!” Jennifer interrupted from the crowd.
“Thank, you” Wisdom smiled at her and she gave him an attractive wink. Of course she was good looking and beautiful to be admired..
Mr Nelson, the principal came in and Wisdom gently stepped down for him still admiring Jennifer’s beauty but he pretended as if nothing was going on. Even Mr Anuma arrived and stood beside the principal who wore black ironed trouser and shirt.
On his eyes were a pair of eyeglasses and a paper in his hands.
“Good morning, students!” he began, “This is another term, a term that you all should work hard for your examinations especially the SS3 students…”
All the students were quiet with their eyes and ears opened but Jennifer never stop eying Widom. Melody and Calista noticed it but kept quiet. Suddenly, Esther, a senior prefect too walked to the quiet assembly ground and stood beside Wisdom. They looked at each other and smiled as a way of saying ‘Good morning’
Seeing such an eye contact and smiles on their faces, Jennifer became jealous and frowned her face.
“..Put away any negative thought and concentrate on your studies. Understood?!” the principal concluded.
“Yes sir!” the students chorused.
After that, Mr Anuma climbed up and the students stared at him in silence. They were expecting nothing but a grammar from his mouth.
“Good morning students!”
“Good morning sir!” some started laughing already even when he had not even spoken a word.
“Some of you are already perspicacious of my perversion” Mr Anuma began and all the students began to laughing. “In other words, you understand my behavior which you believe to be abnormal simply because you are unable to comprehend my grammatical structure” Mr Anuma paused, his attention and that of the students went to a girl that walked into the assembly ground without a uniform-Tochi. She wore a big skirt nd a red top. One hand of her bra was seen and on her feet were sandals.
“Hey, come back here!” Wisdom took an action walking briskly to her.
Tochi stopped and turned.
All the students even Mr Anuma watched to see what will happen.
“Who are you and why did you dress like this to school?” Wisdom asked.
“My name is Tochukwu” she turned angrily and began to walk again.
“Hey I’m talking to you, you aren’t through with my questions!” he dragged her back on her fairy and elastic cloth in a way her bra was openly seen by everybody.
“Hey! Hey!!” the students began to shout.
Meanwhile, Tochi had given Wisdom a hot slap and grabbed his uniform. Students gathered around.
Chester, Wisdom’s friend quickly stood behind him trying to disengage Tochi’s hands from his uniform but he couldn’t.
“Hey! All of you should get into your classes now!” Mr Anuma shouted walking towards the scene with a fat cane and all the students ran into their classes leaving only Wisdom and Tochi.
“Get your hands off me!” Wisdom shouted at her.
“You are the one that look for my trouble this morning oh. Me, i will not leave oh!” she replied shaking her body in a way her breasts flung up and down.
“Hey, leave him alone” Mr Anuma said holding Tochi’s hand. “Don’t prove stubborn, just leave him alone!”
“But sir, he naked me. I will not leave him oh!”
Mr Anuma didn’t know how to deal with such issue and stubborn girl. So he turned just to see the principal coming probably because of the noise he heard.
“What’s going On, Mr Anuma?” he asked.
“Just a little misunderstanding, sir”
The principal looked at Tochi and recognized her. He asked again but Tochi narrated that Wisdom naked her.
“Just leave his shirt, first” the principal suggested before Tochi disengaged her hands from his shirt.
“Both of you follow me to my office” he added.
Wisdom adjusted his rumpled uniform angrily and they followed the principal.
Meanwhile, students were already peeping through the windows, especially Jennifer and her friends.
“Na this kind girls fit that Wisdom of a boy eh” Melody started.
“Hey, hollam there!” Jennifer harangued. “Don’t speak of him like that in my presence again”
“If i do, what will happen?!” They gazed at each other angrily.
“Hey, girls, make una takam easy oh” Calista stepped forward. “The very question now is; who is that girl that Wisdom striped naked?” she asked but none of them answered…
In the principal’s office, Wisdom stood beside Tochi. Both looked angry facing the principal’s table.
“Wisdom, what happened?” the principal asked.
“She disobeyed me, sir”
“And does that warrant you to naked her in public?!”
“It wasn’t intentional, sir”
Mr Nelson became quiet for a while and rubbed his pen on his jaw looking for the rightful judgment.
“Now, i apologize to her” he said.
At first, Wisdom hesitated.
“I said apologize to her!” the principal shouted.
Wisdom gradually faced Tochi and said, “I’m sorry, it will not happen again” but Tochi didn’t even look at him.
“Is okay” the principal began. “She’s only a new student that’s why she isn’t on our uniform” he looked at Tochi and continued, “And you Tochi, this boy here is the senior prefect of this whole school and you must respect him. Understood?!”
“You may now go” They walked out……..
