After staring at the retreating figure of Sylvia for a while, I turned back to face Sharon. Her face was still curved in a smile. I stared at her, not knowing what to say next. After
staring silently at each other for a while, she finally spoke.
"I think we should leave now. I will come to your place later in the evening for the tutorial." she said
I thought she has something important to tell me.
"Sharon" I called
"yes dear" she responded.
"I thought you wanted to tell me something important" I said
"yes, but let's leave that for now. when I come to your place for the tutorial, I will tell you." she responded.
"okay" I said
"where are you going from here?" she asked
"I don't know. anywhere the spirit leads me" I responded.
"okay, I'm just asking so that I won't get to your place and start waiting" she said.
"you won't have to wait. I will get home on time" I assured her.
"okay let's leave then" she said.
we left the garden and went our separate ways.
I found myself going back to the garden called, the garden of eden in school. I couldn't explain why I was going back there. the last time I was there, I didn't do anything important aside from staring at ladies trooping in and out of the garden. the garden is a perfect place for lovers to show how much they love each other. you would always see a guy and a lady doing all sort of things when you get to the garden. it is the only place in school where students are free to do whatever they like without any disturbance. it is believed that the garden of eden is the only place you can woo a lady and ask her to come over to your place at that spot, and she would agree without any stress. it is also believed that ladies who usually come to the garden are those who want to explore the world and use the freedom they have gotten to the maximum, after being held bondage by their parent before gaining admission. so wooing a lady in the garden of eden is as easy as abc. they don't prove difficult to get, and if you play your card well, she might agree to go to you place with you.
I made myself believe I was going to the garden to clear my mind of all worries and nothing else. I got to the garden, and as usual, the place was already filled with guys hanging out with their woman. I located an empty seat beside a tree and sat down. I kept staring at ladies trooping in and out of the garden. I didn't do anything else aside from staring at any lady that passed my way. I was enjoying what I was seeing. it was really pleasing to the eyes. After about an hour, I heard someone called my name from behind. I recognized the voice. I quickly turned to see Kate standing behind me. her face was curved in a smile. she walked to me and sat beside me.
"Christian, how are you?" she asked
"I'm good and you?"
"I'm good too" she responded
Her mood suddenly changed.
"Christian I'm really angry with you" she said.
"why, what did I do?" I asked
"don't ask me. just know that I will never set foot in your house again" she said
"this is serious. please tell me what I did wrong, so that I will know how to correct my mistake." I said.
"you have to find out yourself. I can't tell you that. just take your mind back to the last time I visited you. you will realize your mistake." she said
"okay, I will try find out what I did wrong, and when I realize it, I will surely come back and make correction." I said
"hmm, maybe that will be when we have already graduated from this school." she said
"I promise you, I will find out very soon" I said
"okay, let me believe you then." she said
"I have to leave now. I have an important appointment by 6pm"
"okay" I responded.
she stood up and left the garden. I continued staring at ladies trooping in and out of the garden when Kate left. I turned my gaze to the left and saw a lady staring at me. she was sitting alone at the far-left of the garden. I stared back at her without blinking. After a while of staring at each other, she stood up and walked towards me. she got to me and sat beside me.
"hi" she greeted
"hi" I responded
"I guess you haven't seen your spec" she said
"I don't understand" I said, confused.
"don't pretend not to know what i'm talking about. I know why you are here. you are looking for the next lady who would warm your bed. I have been watching you for a while now. I saw you staring at every lady that passed your way. I guess you have not seen any lady that match your taste." she said.
look at how this lady is laying false accusation on me . I thought. I have to play along to see what she was driving at.
"so you caught me already. you can't blame me. man got to ease himself of some stress. it is not bad to mingle and have fun after the day's stress" I said
"so you have not seen anyone to mingle with since you have been here" she said
"not really. I have not seen any lady that match my taste. it won't be a bad idea if we mingle. since we are both alone" I said.
"you mean the both of us?" she asked
"yes" I responded
She laughed out loud immediately.
"sorry, you are not my type" she said
I was hurt by that statement, but I remained calm.
"so can you describe your kind of guy to me" I said
"guys with flashy cars" she responded
"I see. so how are you so sure that I'm not your kind of guy, when you are only seeing me for the first time" I said
"do you have a car?" she asked.
"you will have to find out yourself" I said
"how?" she asked
I wanted to speak but my phone started ringing. I brought out the phone from my pocket and realized the call was from Sharon.
"give me a minute" I said to the lady beside me and picked the call.
"hello Sharon" I said
"Christian I hope you are at home, because I'm already on my way to your place." she said
"yes I'm at home" I lied
"okay I will be there very soon" she said
"okay" I responded.
I ended the call and turned to face the lady beside me.
"that was one of your girlfriend right?" she asked
"something like that. I have to start leaving now. she needs me" I said
"okay" she responded
"so what's your name" I asked
"I can't tell you that now. maybe when next we meet. and make sure you are with your car when next I see you" she said
"okay" I responded.
I stood up and left the garden.
'that lady is something else' I said to myself as I left the garden.
