‘what is that?’ Maria asked as she drank from her chilled chivita juice.
‘she’s dating Henry now’
At the sound of that, the glass cup nearly fell from her hands, she hadnt been expecting that. Her hands trembled for seconds before she calmed down reminding herself that she had cut short her feelings for that hunk of a guy since she entered SS2.
‘she did it to spite me’ she said after a moment of silence.
‘i dont know’ Susan said softly ‘even though i know you are trying hard to kill your feelings for the guy, just let them be okay?’
‘who has any plans in disturbing them before? They should enjoy themselves to the fullest jare afterall, i’m sure Abigail is not a virgin’
‘e don tey wey Abby comot for virgin, that girl eh, no be today she spoil oo’
‘that one concern her. Na when she carry belle na she go know howfar’
‘are you still a virgin Maria?’
‘which kain question be that?’
‘i’m just curious. You know you’ve always bragged about waiting for your future husband to come before having se.x. So tell me, have you popped the cherry?’
Maria fidgeted with her clutch then stood up and arranged her gown.
‘that one na discussion for another day. No i gat house na, na today dem discharge Alice’ Maria said walking out without waiting for Susan to say anything.
She knew she might just burst into tears there and then. She had lost two things that really mattered to her. Her virginity and Henry.
Henry was the guy she had been crushing on since primary school. The guy was very handsome and every girl’s dream. Even though Maria was the most beautiful girl in class, he never noticed her. At first he was dating Ginika, one dark, fat and ugly girl wit big brea.st and butt0ckz.
When Henry started noticing her was during their junior waec when they sat in the same chair. She had difficulty in some subjects and it was the guy that put her through.
They became close friends throughout Ss1 and just when she thought the guy as liking her, he started chasin Abby around like the way fly follows sh.it.
Abby had refused to date him then because of her.
And then in Ss2, she tried her possible best to avoid him by not picking his calls or replying his text messages. He was surprised at first but later stopped calling her.
And now Abby was dating him. God!
