Angel and Jewel sat quietly at the faculty garden. They were the only one in the garden. every other
students have gone back to their hostel. The garden was very quiet and conducive for reading. They were both holding different materials which they were reading. even though they were sitting very close to each other, they had not say anything to each other since they got to garden. They were not even studying together. Each of them was reading his own material. they were not working together as they should have.
Henry suddenly walked into the garden. He froze immediately he saw Jewel and Angel sitting at the far-left in the garden. They were too engrossed in what they were reading, that they didn't notice his presence. Henry quickly hid behind a tree and stared at them from a distance. He frown when he saw Jewel sitting very close to Angel. He glared at them. His eyes suddenly turned red. if those eyes were gun, about six bullets would have pierced into Jewel's body. He glared at them with so much pain in his heart.
"someone I thought was my friend, went behind me to get the lady I love. so people could be this wicked" he said, bitterly.
"Jewel, don't think you have won, because I will surely come back for you. you will regret going for the lady I love. I'm going to make you regret doing this to me. just wait and see. you have just drawn the battle line. you will surely regret this. I promise you" Henry sworn.
He glared at them one last time and left the garden without their awareness.
Lucy sat quietly in Jessica's room, waiting for her to return. she had been sitting there all alone for close to 2 hours. she was becoming impatient. She had tried calling her several times but her number was not reachable. she looked at her phone screen and realized it was already 8:15pm.
"I have to leave now. it's late already. but what is she doing out at this time. Even Angel that left since 6pm has not returned. will she still be with Jewel up till now? What are they even discussing? why did they even agree to meet up in the first? I hope it's not what i'm thinking. I will have to find out. I won't just sit and do nothing." she said, carried her bag and stood up to leave.
The door opened immediately she stood up, and Jessica walked in. she heaved a sigh of relief when she was Jessica.
"Jessica, where have you been? I have been waiting for you for two hours now." Lucy said.
"why didn't you call me?" Jessica asked.
"I called but it was not reachable." Lucy responded.
Jessica brought out her phone from her bag and realized that her phone was switched off.
"oh, sorry my phone is switched off. why do you want to see me?" Jessica asked.
"come and sit down" Lucy said and pulled Jessica to sit with her on the bed.
"by the way, where is Angel?" Jessica asked.
"she left the hostel since 6pm. she went to meet Jewel" Lucy responded.
"Jewel!" Jessica said, surprised.
"I thought they were not on good terms."
"that was what I thought too. but Jewel called her this evening to meet him at the gate." Lucy responded.
"maybe he just wanted to apologize for what he did to Angel. whatever the case may be, i'm glad they have settled their differences." Jessica said.
"that's true" Lucy responded.
"so what do you want to discuss with me?" Jessica asked.
"I want to ask ........."
The door suddenly opened, cutting Lucy off from saying what she wanted to say.
They both turned there attention to the door to she Angel standing at the door. she looked exhausted. she walked into the room and went straight to her bed to sit. she dropped her bag beside her.
"Angel, where have you been all this while?" Lucy asked.
"I was with Jewel. we were ......." she suddenly paused when she realized she shouldn't have said that.
"I mean to say, I was at the faculty garden reading."
Lucy stared at her suspiciously. she wasn't convinced by Angel's response. she knew Angel wanted to say something about Jewel but suddenly stopped.
'there must be something going on between Angel and Jewel, if not, she wouldn't have kept the fact that she was with him all these while a secret.' she thought.
Angel stood up from her bed and walked to the door.
"where are you going?" Jessica asked.
"I want to get my clothes" Angel responded.
"let me come with you. I want to get mine also" Jessica said.
"okay, let's go then" Angel responded.
Jessica stood up from her bed and left the room with Angel.
Lucy rushed to Angel's bed immediately they left the room. she took Angel's bag and opened it. she searched through it to see if she could find anything that proves that Angel and Jewel were seeing each other.
Jewel walked into his room to find Henry already asleep. He quietly went to his bed and sat. he dropped his books and lay on his bed to catch some sleep. Henry secretly opened his eyes. He glared at Jewel for some time before closing his eyes to get some sleep.
Jewel woke up very early and prepare for lecture. Henry was not in the room when he woke up. He couldn't believe that Henry left for lecture so early. He quickly prepared for lecture and left the hostel when he was set.
The class was almost filled. Angel, Jessica and Lucy could been seen sitting at the far left. Jewel and Francis were occupying the front sit. Henry was sitting alone at the back. They were all waiting for the lecturer to arrive. Few minutes later, Daniel walked into the class. He went straight to the podium and faced the class.
"hello everyone" he called the attention of the class.
The class focused their attention on him.
"i'm sorry, this class won't hold. The lecturer is not available. He is attending a seminar" Daniel said.
Students started leaving the class immediately Daniel made the announcement. Angel, Jessica and Lucy stood up to leave but Daniel approach them immediately.
"hi ladies" he greeted.
"hi Daniel" they responded in unison.
"Angel can i talk to you?" he asked.
"sure" she responded.
Jessica and Lucy walked ahead. Daniel waited until they had left before he turned to face Angel.
"I'm curious" Daniel said.
"curious about what?" Angel asked.
"why did I see you and Jewel together. I thought you were not on good terms." Daniel asked.
Angel stared at him for a while, not sure why he asked such question.
"I'm not quarreling with Jewel. we just had little misunderstanding." she responded.
"I saw you alone with him yesterday night. Are you guys........"
"I have to leave now. my friends are waiting for me." she cut in immediately.
She left his presence without listening to any more questions from him. she didn't know why he was asking her questions about Jewel, and don't feel like answering question relating to Jewel.
Angel entered her room and was surprised to see that Jessica was not back. she was expecting to meet her in the room since she left before her.
'maybe she has gone to her cousin's hostel.' she thought.
She sat on her bed and removed her shoes. she opened her bag and brought out her notebook. A piece of paper dropped from her bag immediately. She ignored it at first, but later picked it up and unwrapped it. she stared in confusion when she saw the content written on the paper.
'stay away from him. he is evil. he will ruin your life'. that was the content of the paper.
she stared at the paper confused, as she couldn't understand what those words mean.
"who was this meant for? what is it doing in my bag?" she mumbled.
"who kept it in my bag, and who is it referring to? I don't think this is for me. maybe it mistakenly find it way to my bag."
She dropped the paper back in her bag and lay on her bed. The content of the paper kept resurfacing in her mind and she became troubled.
