Jewel became very scared that he did not know who is trying to harm him, and what the person planned to do.
"what will I do now? this is a threat to
my life. I don't know if this person is just trying to scare me, or he is actually serious with what he said" he said.
A knock sounded on the door and he turned quickly to the direction of the door. He was scared. He knew that was not Henry, because Henry wouldn't have knocked on the door. He stood up from his bed and walked to the door. He opened the door to see Jessica standing at the door.
"hi Jessica" he said, surprised.
He wasn't expecting to see her standing at the door.
"hi Jewel" she responded, smiling.
She was carrying a handbag.
"is Henry around?" she asked.
"no, he has not returned yet" Jewel responded.
"can I wait for him?" Jessica asked.
"sure, please come in" Jewel said and gave way for her to enter.
She entered into the room and Jewel followed behind her.
"please have a seat" Jewel said, pointing at Henry's bed.
"thank you" Jessica responded and sat down on Henry's bed.
Jewel went back to sit on his bed. He took a book and busied himself with it. After a while of deafening silence, he spoke.
"have you called to inform him that you are waiting for him?" Jewel asked.
"no, let me call him now" she responded and dailed Jewel's number.
she placed the phone on her ear and waited for him to pick up.
"hello Jessica" Henry's voice sounded at the other end.
"I'm waiting for you in your room" Jessica said.
"oh! I will be with you soon. I'm on my way. give me 5minutes" Henry responded.
"okay, I'm waiting" Jessica said and ended the call.
"what did he say?" Jewel asked, immediately.
"he is on his way" Jessica responded.
"okay" Jewel said.
Jewel stood up from his bed.
"you can wait for him here. I need to go and get something from my friend's hostel." he said.
"okay" Jessica responded.
Jewel walked to the door and went out. He wasn't actually going to get anything. He just wanted to give them some privacy.
Jessica sat alone in the room, staring at every corners of the room.
After sitting alone in the room for a while, Henry walked into the room and went straight to me Jessica on his bed.
"sorry for keeping you waiting" he apologized.
"it's nothing" Jessica said.
"so, to what do I owe this surprise visit?" Henry asked
"I actually want you to explain something for me" Jessica responded.
"let's see what it is then" Henry said.
"before that, let's have lunch. I brought food" Jessica said and brought out a food flask from her handbag
"you shouldn't have bothered bringing food. Anyway, thanks very much." Henry said.
"go and bring plate let me dish out the food" Jessica said.
Henry hurried to his cupboard and brought two plates and spoons. He handed them to Jessica. Jessica dished out the food in just one of the plates, for them to eat together.
They sat facing each other on the bed and consumed the food silently. The didn't say a word to each other until they were done eating.
"thank you very much. it's really delicious." Henry said when they were done eating.
"you are welcome" Jessica responded.
"but you don't always have to bring me food whenever you need my assistance. you can always come to me whenever you need me." he said, trying to act like a gentle man, but In actual sense, he doesn't mind if she keeps bringing him food, because her food was very delicious.
Henry explained what Jessica wanted him to explain for her, and when he was done, they both left the room together.
It was already 5:45pm. Angel sat on her bed, preparing for his personal study with Jewel. She put on her sandals and took her notebook from her table. she flipped through pages and noticed another piece of paper, placed in her notebook. she stared at the paper and prayed silently that it should not contain any scary message. she picked up the paper and read the message in it.
'he is evil. stay away from him. he will ruin your life'
The message was just exactly the same with the first one she got.
She stared at the paper in anger. This time, she wasn't scared but angry.
"so Jewel, after warning you to stop sending me such messages, you still went ahead and sent it. you think you can scare me this way. Just wait until I get to the garden." she said, carried her handbag and stormed out of her room.
Jewel entered his room to realize that Henry and Jessica were no longer in the room. He went straight to his bed and lay down. It's was already 6:15pm and he had not gone to join Angel at the garden. He didn't intend going there, not after the message he got. He didn't know who is threatening his life, so it is only proper for him to tread carefully. He took his book instead and busied himself with it.
Angel sat on a seat at the faculty garden, waiting impatiently for Jewel. she was waiting for him to arrive, so that she could give him a piece of her mind. She looked at her phone screen and realized it was 6:30pm already.
"what's keeping him" she said.
When she was tired of sitting, she stood up and paced up and down the garden.
"so Jewel is actually joking with me. He knew what he did, that's why he refused to show up now. He think he can joke with me and go free. let's see how it goes." she said.
She carried her handbag and left the garden.
Jewel dropped the book he was reading and sat up. His door suddenly opened and Angel stormed into the room. She walked straight to meet him and stood in his front. She fixed an angry gaze on Jewel.
Jewel suddenly realized he should have informed her not to bother going to the garden because he won't be available.
"I'm sorry. I should have called to inform you not to go to the garden. I forgot. My mind was on so many things" Jewel apologized.
"what's the meaning of this?" Angel asked and showed him the piece of paper.
Jewel collected the paper and took a thorough look at it. He froze when he realized that the writing was the same with the one he has.
"why are you sending this to me? what are you trying to achieve by doing this? do you think I will sit down and watch you joke with me?" Angel barked.
Jewel quickly rushed to his bag and brought out the one with him. He gave it to Angel.
"I have been getting similar message also" he said.
Angel stared at the paper in surprise. She became weak when she realized that both message was written by same person. Her angry suddenly disappeared. She sat down on Jewel's bed and took a deep breath.
"so you are not the one sending me those messages. who is sending it then?" Angel asked.
"how am I suppose to know. I think the person sending it actually wants me to stay away from you. He thinks we are seeing each other. He threatened to ruin my line if I don't stay away from you." Jewel said.
"so what are will going to do now?" Angel asked.
"I don't know. I think it's better if we stay away from each other for now, because this is not an ordinary threat." Jewel responded.
"we can't do that. we need to study for the upcoming quiz." Angel said, immediately.
"hey look here, I'm the one being threatened. if things go wrong, I will be the one to face the consequence. so you can't tell me what to do." Jewel cautioned.
"I'm sorry" Angel apologized.
"but we can come up with a plan"
Jewel quickly sat down beside her on his bed.
"do you have a plan?" he asked.
"I don't have a plan, but I think for now, we should just change our location." Angel responded.
"do you have any location in mind?" Jewel asked.
"we can have our study here in your room" Angel suggested.
Jewel wanted to agree to the suggestion, but his mind suddenly drifted to Henry.
"I don't think it's a good idea. we can use your room instead" Jewel said.
"if you are okay with it. then there's no problem." Angel said.
"I'm okay with it" Jewel responded.
"my room it is then" Angel said.
"it will be better that way" Jewel said.
"I'm so tired. I ran all the way here with the aim of creating a scene, thinking you are the one sending me those messages" Angel said and lay on Jewel's bed.
"you can rest a bit before going back to your hostel" Jewel said.
"thank you" Angel said.
"you are welcome" Jewel responded.
The door suddenly opened and Henry walked in. He froze when he saw Angel lying on Jewel's bed. He stared from Jewel to Angel, back to Jewel. They stared silently at him also. After a while of deafening silence, Henry spoke.
"sorry for disturbing you guys" he said and turned to leave the room.
