Jewel was seen in his room arranging his clothes in his bag. He was planning of going home. He couldn't wait until weekend anymore. He just
wanted to leave his room. His door suddenly opened and Angel walked in. she paused when she saw Jewel arranging his clothes in his bag. She became scared. she slowly walked to meet Jewel.
"what are you doing? why are you arranging your clothes in your bag. I hope it's not what I'm thinking." Angel said, curiously.
"I'm going back home. I can't be in this room anymore." Jewel responded.
"what about the school panels? what did they say to you? what's your fate?" Angel asked.
"The semester has almost come to an end, so I can't face the panel right now. I will face the panel when we resume next semester. that's when my fate will be decided." Jewel said.
Angel held his hands and stared into his eyes.
"we will overcome this. I'm very sure of it. just have faith" Angel assured him.
"yes I believe. I'm not guilty. nothing will happen. I will resume with my mates next semester." Jewel responded and zipped his bag.
"yes, that's the spirit" Angel said.
"I will start leaving now. I don't want Henry to meet me here. I really don't want to see his face right now" Jewel said.
"yes, I understand" Angel responded.
"I'm changing my hostel once I resume next semester. I can't be in the same hostel with such a person" Jewel said.
"yes, that's what you should do" Angel responded.
"okay, see you next semester" Jewel said.
Angel hugged him immediately. she hugged him tightly.
"I will miss you. I will miss you a lot." Angel said.
"I will miss you more" Jewel responded.
Angel freed him and stared into his eyes.
"we will resume together next semester" Angel said.
"yes we will" Jewel responded.
"okay, let me see you off" Angel said.
"okay" Jewel responded.
Angel assisted Jewel in carrying his luggage and they left the room together.
A cab pulled to an abrupt halt in front of a black gate. The cab man quickly alighted and went to the trunk. He opened the trunk and brought down the luggage in it.
"oga, we have reached your location." He said.
Jewel quickly alighted from the cab.
"I'm sorry. I didn't know we are here already" he said.
He had been sleeping all the way back home and didn't even realize that he had reached his destination. He was very tired. The drive back home was rough. He settled the cab man and he drove off. He stared at the gate with smiles on his face.
"mum, dad, I'm back home." he said.
He opened the gate and dragged his luggage into the compound. It's a compound that houses four flats. The compound was very silent and no one could be seen around.
"as usual. everyone is in their flats." he said and dragged his luggage to their own flat.
He stood at the door and heaved a sigh of relief.
"finally, I'm home" he said and knocked on the door.
Few seconds later, the door opened to reveal a woman in her early forties.
"Jewel!" the woman called, surprised.
"mum" Jewel said.
Jewel's mum hugged him immediately.
"welcome home my son" she said.
"thanks mum" Jewel responded.
"I have missed you so much" she said.
"I miss you too mum" Jewel responded.
"please come in and rest. you must be very tired." she said and assisted Jewel in carrying his bag into the sitting room.
Jewel entered into the sitting room and sat down on the sofa.
"mum, where is dad?" he asked.
"he has not returned from work" his mum responded.
"okay" he said.
"I hope your exams went well" his mum said.
"yes mum" he responded.
He was not ready to break the bad news to his mother.
"okay son, let me get you something to eat. I know you must be very hungry." he mum said and went to the kitchen.
Jewel carried his luggage and went straight to his room.
Angel lay on her bed and stared at the ceiling. She looked very sad. several thought were on her mind. She stood up from her bed, brought out her bag and started packing her stuffs in it. The door suddenly opened and Jessica walked in. she saw Angel packing her things into her bag and approached her.
"what are you doing?" Jessica asked.
"I'm going home" Angel responded.
"I thought you said you won't leave until weekend" Jessica said.
"I changed my mind" Angel responded.
"it seems I will start leaving also, because I can't be in this room all alone." Jessica said.
Angel continued with what she was doing. she suddenly paused and faced Jessica.
"what will be the fate of Jewel if found guilty?" she asked.
"according to the rules and regulation on our exam pass. possession of unauthorized materials in the examination hall is 2 semesters rustication, while smuggling of answer booklet into the examination hall is expulsion. So it depends on which one Jewel is found guilty of" Jessica responded.
Angel suddenly became weak. she stopped what she was doing and sat on her bed.
"I know Jewel won't be found guilty of any of those. I know that for sure. He has a bright future ahead." she assured herself.
Jewel sat in the sitting room, watching his favorite programme on tv. His parent has gone out, so he was all alone in the house. A knock sounded on the door, distracting him from the programme he was watching.
"who could that be?" he mumbled.
He stood up and went to the door. He opened the door and froze immediately. standing before him was Jane, his childhood friend and first love, who dumped him for a richer guy in her school. He stared at her in shock. He never believed he would ever see her again after what she did to him.
"My Jewel!" Jane called and immediately hugged him.
"I miss you so much, my Jewel. This few months without you had been hell for me." Jane said.
Jewel stared at her, surprised.
'was it not this same Jane who broke my heart some months ago. why is she suddenly acting nice?' He thought.
"my Jewel, I miss you so much. I returned last week from school, and ever since, I have been waiting for you to return also. Thank God you are finally back." Jane said.
"I thought you broke up with me already. Why are you suddenly acting nice?" Jewel asked.
"no o, I can never break up with you. you are my everything. I only said what I said back then to protect you." Jane responded.
"protect me, how?" Jewel asked.
"Daniel is a member of a cult group. He had been trying to date me, but I kept turning him down. He warned all my friends to stay away from me, because he thinks they were the reason why I kept turning him down. He threatened to harm anyone he sees close to me. As we speak now, I don't have any close friend in school, all because of Daniel. I dare not tell him that you are my boyfriend, when you visited. if I did, you wouldn't have returned home safely. He would have inflicted injuries on you. I don't know what I would have done if he had harmed you. I only said that to protect you. you are my Jewel. I can't let anyone harm you. I can't bear to see even a scratch on your body." Jane said.
Jewel suddenly became weak after what Jane narrated to him.
'so Jane didn't actually broke up with me. she was only protecting me.' he thought.
"all this while, I thought you have ended our relationship" Jewel said.
"I can't do that. my life will be miserable without you. you are my everything." Jane responded.
"okay, you can come in now" Jewel said and gave way for her to enter.
Jane planted a kiss on his lips first, before entering the sitting room.
