At the sound of the closing bell, Segun hurriedly
walked to the SS1, SS2 class to inform the members
of the football team to wait behind for practice. After
that he went to the snacks shop where he paid for
the snacks he bought for the junior student during
the long break.
He got back changed his school uniform, put on his
football kits(all provided by the school) and got on
the pitch of play.
They did some exercise before they played a short
match against themselves to regain their pattern of
After one hour, they left the school after they had
achieved their set goal.
Segun walked out of the school compound and
headed for the bus/stop. Just then his phone
It was his mother.
“Hello mum.” he said.
“Are you at home?” she asked.
“Not yet, but am on my way.” he informed.
“Okay, i just want you to meet me in the shop.” she
“Hope no problem?” he asked.
“When you come.” she replied.
Segun returned his phone back to his pocket and
increased his pace. He got home fifteen minutes
He knocked on the gate but the gate was opened five
minutes later by Mary.
“What kept you long?” he asked.
“I I I I….erm….i was….busy.” she stammered.
Segun hissed and walked to the sitting room where
he met Mike sitting down comfortably with a bottle
of Maltina on a stool before him. Segun looked at
him with hatred before walking towards him.
“What are you doing here?” Segun asked angrily.
“Are you quarelling with google.” Mike replied
Segun angrily launched an attack hitting him on his
nose. Immediately he began bleeding from the nose.
Mary quickly held Segun from behind and in anger
Segun swung his hand, he hit Mary on the head
causing her to loose balance. She fell down and hit
her head on the pointed edge of the chair. She lost
Seeing this Mike ran away immediately with a
bleeding nose. Segun went into the kitchen and
returned with a first aid box and a bowl of water. He
applied his first aid knowledge of reviving a fainted
Twenty minutes later Mary came back to life which
relieved Segun. Her vision was blur and she was
dazed, she requested to be taken to her room to
sleep. Segun obliged her, he sat down on the edge
of the bed watching her closely. This time he was yet
to remove his school uniform.
Mary slept off some minutes later, Segun left for his
AN HOUR LATER THEIR MOTHER ARRIVED.
“Mary… Segun.” she called from the sitting room.
Segun answered her and ran to meet her in the
“Where is your sister?” she asked.
“She is not feeling fine, she is sleeping.” He
She stood up and headed for Mary’s room.
She barged into the room and woke her up in the
“Mummy welcome.” Mary greeted.
Her mother sat down on the edge of the bed and
touched her body, she touched her head and felt the
swollen part of her head.
“What happened to your head?” she asked.
Mary looked at her mother and then looked at
She cleared her throat to talk
Mary looked at her mother and then Segun before
she cleared her throat.
“Mum, i missed my steps while i was descending the
stairs.” she explained.
“Is anybody pursueing you?” she asked looking at
“No mum, it was the tile that caused it.” she lied.
“What have you taken?” her mother asked.
“Bro Segun has given me some pain relievers.” she
“Take your time and rest.” her mother said standing
up as she left for her room.
“Thanks mum.” Mary appreciated.
“And you, see me in my room now.” their mother
said referring to Segun.
Segun nodded his head as he sat down on the
available chair by the bedside with an apologetic
“Mary, am sorry for what i did.” he said.
She looked at him as tears welled up in her eyes.
“I don’t want you to have anything to do with Mike.
He is a player who will always toil with your
emotions.” Segun explained.
“But i love him.” Mary said sadly.
“I know but he doesn’t love you. Imagine him
running away when you fainted in the afternoon.”
“He was afraid.” Mary defended.
“Just be careful.” Segun adviced.
Mary nodded her head in affirmation.
“Let me go and see mummy.” Segun said as he
walked out of the room.
IN HIS MOTHER’S ROOM
“Segun, why didn’t you come to shop when i asked
you to come?” she asked.
“I was attending to Mary that was why.” he
“Is that so?” she asked.
“Yes mum.” he replied.
“I called you so that you can meet Jummy’s father.”
“thank God i didn’t come.” he thought within
“We have finalised things as it ought to be.” She
“What things?” he asked ignorantly.
“Her father will be going back to Japan in two days
time, so Jummy will have to live with us now. And
this will futher strengthen the relationship between
you two.” she explained.
“She can’t stay with us. What about her schooling?”
“I’ll enrol her in your school.” she informed.
“Our school doesn’t admitt final year students.” he
“I’ll meet Mr Hastrup tomorrow and hopefully he’ll
admit her.” she said.
Segun looked at his mother angrily who in turn
smiled at him.
“You can go.” she dismissed him.
He got out of his mother’s room and brought out his
“I need to establish something with this girl.” he said
as he dialled Nike’s number.
She picked the call after the fourth ring.
“Hello.” he said.
“Hi.” she replied.
“How are you?” he asked.
“Am fine.” she replied.
“Nike, i have something i want to tell you. It has
been bothering my mind since but i have to say it
out now.” he said.
“Say it.” she replied.
He brainwashed her for the next five minutes with
his romantic words which left Nike speechless.
He concluded his talks with.
“Nike, will you be my lover? Yes or no?” he asked.
She cleared her throat and replied.
“Segun let me think about it.”
“When should i expect a reply?” he asked.
“Before this week runs out.” she replied.
“Goodnight sweet.” he said.
“Goodnight.” she replied.
Segun walked out of his room and headed towards
Mary’s room to check on her.
After checking on Mary he retired back to his room
“Segun! What is this?” his mother called from the
He immediately ran to the sitting room where he
saw his parents standing.
“Daddy, you are back? Welcome sir.” he greeted.
His father ignored and looked at him with an “i will
kill you look.” which futher scared him.
“What is this?” his mother asked pointing to the
drops of blood on the tile.
“The blood abi?” he asked foolishly.
“And who drank this?” she asked pointing to the
bottle on the stool.
“Talk now or never.” his father yelled.
Mary walked into the sitting room holding the walls
“The blood is from me.” she said.
“How?” her mother asked.
“I’m seeing my period.” she lied.
Their parents bought the lies foolishly as they
dismissed them after Segun had been ordered to
clean the blood. They both left the sitting room and
Segun followed Mary back to her room.
“Mary, thanks for saving me for the second time
today.” he said.
Mary was in pains as she couldn’t reply.
Just then her phone ranged. It was Mike. She looked
at an angry Segun who pretended not to be angry.
“Hello, is this when you are supposed to call me. As
if you are not the cause of all these. And i was trying
to stop him from hitting you, that was how i got
injured. Now look at the time you are calling me.”
Segun couldn’t hear what Mike was saying in the
background. He just heard Mary reply.
“How dare you call my brother an animal?” she
Segun folded his fists like he wants to punch Mary.
“Mike, so this is life? This is how you want to repay
me, despite how much i have done for you.
Remember i love you with my heart and body.” she
Segun was confused as to what she was saying.
She quickly got herself back as she ended the call
and removed her battery.
Segun looked at her with an askance look.
“He has broken up with me.” she cried.
Segun told her to lower her voice which she did to
“Thank God you have not invested much in the
relationship.” Segun said happily but faked sadness.
“How i wish i haven’t invested heavily.” she said.
“What do you mean?” Segun asked agitatedly
“I had s*x with him.” she said with a teary voice.
“Mary, why? I’m highly disappointed in you. Why
would you allow such guy to take advantage of you?”
he asked in anger.
“Please, its not my fault. I thought that was the best
way to seal our love.” she explained.
Segun moved close to her and held her shoulder.
“Mary, did he use protection?” Segun asked.
“No.” she responded.
“Segun are you there with Mary?” their father asked.
“Yes sir.” Segun replied as he quickly composed
himself and cleaned the tears in Mary’s eyes.
Their father opened the door to the room, checked
on Mary, prayed for her and left but not after telling
her, she would be visiting the hospital the following
Mary knelt down before Segun immediately their
“Please lets keep this a secret.” she said pleadingly.
Segun sighed and looked at her sympathetically.
“Mary, i don’t want to see you with Mike again. But
he will be punished for this.” Segun said angrily.
“Bro please, if you attack him people will know
about us.” she explained.
“Okay.” Segun said and left for his room.
He got into his room filled with rage and laid on his
bed before he drifted into a fitful sleep.
**9 O’CLOCK THE FOLLOWING DAY**
Segun was standing before the principal.
“What is wrong with your sister? I learnt she is not
in school today.” the principal asked.
“She’s not feeling fine.” he replied.
“But i think i told you to come with your father this
morning. Where is he now?” the man asked.
“He took Mary to the hospital.” he replied.
Just then there was a knock on the door to the
“Yes come in.” Mr Hastrup said.
Mrs Akinola(Segun’s mum) entered with Jummy
following closely behind her. Jummy was dressed in
a black knee-length skirt and a purple top over a
multicoloured flip flop(slippers).
Mr Hastrup dismissed Segun immediately he
discovered that Mrs Akinola was there for business.
Segun got outside and thought to himself.
“Why on earth will this girl be brought to this place?
Imagine how she was winking at me in there. She’s
gonna be a stalker for sure.” he said and left for his
He got into the class and saw some mathematics
questions on the board. He settled down and solved
them all to the amazement of all other students who
were present when the teacher was teaching them
the topic. They(his classmates) all agreed he is truely
a genius even though they were mad at him because
of the way he insulted them the previous day when
they tried to preach to him.
“Good morning sir.” they all rose up to greet Mr
Adio(the vice principal academics)who was
accopanied by Jummy.
“How are you all?” he asked.
“We are fine sir.” they chorused.
The students started murmuring some inaudible
words. The guys were busy admiring her beauty,
while the girls were accessing her base on what she
“Hello class, this is Olagunju Olajumoke. A new
student of this school.” Mr Adio said calling the
attention of everybody.
“Good morning.” the whole class greeted her
“Good morning.” she replied shyly.
Mr Adio left her in the class to get acquinted with
her new classmates.
She left where she was standing and walked to
where Segun was seated.
“Hi.” she greeted him.
“Hello.” he replied without raising up his head.
“The serious student.” she said mockingly.
“Oh! You are welcome to our school.” Segun said
standing up to shake her hands like they were
meeting for the first time.
She took the handshake but not after hitting him
playfully. She left Segun’s seat and went on to
introduce herself better to other members of the
“Olagunju. The principal wants to see you.” the
secretary said referring to Jummy.
Jummy followed the secretary and off they went to
the principal office.
“Segun, this girl makes sense o.” Wilson said.
“I heard about it.” Segun replied sacarstically.
“Can i have her number?” Wilson stressed further.
“You don’t know any other thing than to toast girls.”
Bolanle(a girl sitting in the front said).
“Is it because he didn’t toast you, now you are
jealous.” Segun chipped in and everybody bursted
“Segun, i don’t like it o.” she said angrily.
“Don’t mind me jare.” Segun apologised mockingly.
Jummy came back into the class and went straight to
Segun’s seat. They began gisting like new friends.
Segun called all the members of the school football
team and addressed them on behalf of the games
master. He reminded them of the need to put more
seriousness in practice, so that they can triumph
over their opponent.
Segun left the school compound and joined Jummy
outside as they both walked home.
“I never knew we could come back together this
soon.” Jummy said happily.
Segun was shocked.
“What did you say?” he asked
