Author POV

Angella, Caroline and Elizabeth sat before
Mr Joel the Principal, Mr Uche the Vice
principal and Mrs Ebunoluwa the Guidance

“This is your end..Bad girl!” A voice barked
at the back of Angella’s mind.
“Did you really conspire with your friends
to post those pictures?” Mr Joel asked
pointing to Angella.

Angella bent her head.
“Yes Sir”
“Its not true Sir” Lizzy Countered
Angella and Caroline exchanged glances.
“I’m not part of the plan” Lizzy added
“Liar! Don’t try to act like you are
innocent!” Caroline fired
“I told you not to post the pictures” She

“We’re in this together” Caro said
And they began to argue.
“Keep quiet!” Mr Uche silenced them
“Disrespectful brats!” Mrs Ebunoluwa spat.
“You’re free to defend yourself in a polite
way” The Principal said
Lizzy raised her hand
“Sir, it was Caroline who suggested the
posting of the pictures on the school page.
She got the pictures from her cousin who
used to be Kate’s classmates. And I warned
them against posting those pictures but
they didn’t listen to me” Lizzy explained
Mr Joel shook his head

“I can’t believe this is happening” Mr Uche
scratched his head
“Caroline you didn’t bother to find the
truth. You were bent on disgracing
Katherine that you forgot to think
properly. You never care to ask your cousin
how they knew Kate was in the toilet with
her school mother”

Mr Joel narrated the story Kate told him to

They were stunned.

It struck Caroline immediately that Cynthia
had lied to her.

“Elizabeth,you knew about their plans but
“I tried to stop them Sir” she interrupted
him in a low tone.

“If you really wanted to stop them, then
you should have made a report to me” He

“I’m sorry Sir” she spoke up quickly
“Sorry? It seems you don’t know the
gravity of what you did to Katherine
Adebowale” Mr Joel said
They bent their heads feeling guilty.

Lizzy felt empty thoroughly. She admitted
that she was at fault for not reporting to
the principal. She could have saved
Katherine from the disgrace.

“I am disappointed, Angella Benson” Mr
Joel said

“Can you imagine?!” Mrs Ebunoluwa sighed
“I heard of what you also did to Adesewa”
he said

Angella became disturbed
“You were one of my golden students but
you hid your true self under facade. I am
disappointed” He said
She was silent

“It turned out that Katherine was innocent.
Caroline’s cousin master minded the whole
incident with her Senior. It was set up. But
you didn’t care to find the truth. You just
believed what Caroline told you. And you
won’t be excused, you’ll get purnished for
your disgraceful act” Mr Joel said

Angella winced at his words with her head
bent in shame.

“Hurray!” Temi screamed loudly
“Kate be happy, God has put your enemies
in shame” Elena danced
And they laughed

“I’m grateful to God and of course
everyone of you for helping me” Kate said
“Emeka deserves the biggest thank
you..Maybe a kiss too” Jones teased
And Temi smacked his back.
“Don’t be silly”
He laughed

“What?! Can’t she kiss him to say thank
you?” He asked
“I’ll appreciate a kiss” Emeka gave Kate a

“Don’t let Jeffrey rip your head off” Elena
sang lowly

Emeka turned to look at her
“What do you mean?” He asked trying to
make sense of her words.

“Jones can you tell Temi to kiss another
boy?” Elena asked

“Hell no! I’ll kill him” Jones spat making a
funny gesture of strangling Emeka.
Emeka pushed him away gently.
“Are you dating..Him” Emeka blurted
looking straight at Kate. He pointed to
Jeffrey in surprise.

She tried to change the topic
“Lest talk about the pizza -”
“She’s my girlfriend” Jeffrey announced
pulling Kate close to his side. His arms
went round her waist automatically.
Emeka’s eyes widened in shock and his jaw
dropped slightly.

“You heard me”
Jones whistled
Temi and Elena were not surprised. They’d
figured something was going on between
Jeffrey and Kate ever since she told them
about the first meeting. And Jeffrey
became incredibly close and open with
Katherine since the meeting.
Katherine looked up at Jeffrey. He didn’t
regret telling them about their

He felt it was better to spill it out so Emeka
won’t get his hopes high. Doing nasty
things with Caroline just in the name of
proving to be a true friend sent a warning
signal to him. So it was best to let him

“Is it true?” Emeka asked in a low tone
Kate didn’t respond
She stared at the ground, drawing circles
with her shoes. Jeffrey circled her with his
huge frame, blocking the rest from seeing
her face and it looked like he was kissing
her but he only bent his head close to her
ears. Kate shifted and looked at him. He
leaned in.

They exclaimed
“Were you planning on keeping us a secret
for a long time?” He whispered
“I don’t know..” She bit her lower lip
“You don’t love me again?” He said into her
“I do” she muttered
He smiled

“I don’t trust Emeka. I think he still likes
you, he’s just hiding his feelings to
maintain the Friendship. So tell him about
us so he would back off!”
He said

She nodded

Then he withdrew from Kate.
“Are you not shy of kissing in public place?”
Elena asked with a surprised look on her

“We weren’t -”
Jeffrey sq££zed her hand and Kate bit
back her words

“Are you really dating him?” Emeka said
“What other prove do you want? We just
kissed now” Jeffrey said

“Yes..He’s my boyfriend” she answered
Jones wolf whistled again
“Since When?” He asked

“It has been weeks now” she said
“So why did you choose him?” Emeka
questioned with a deep frown on his face.
Fury crashed over Jeffrey at Emeka words.
He sounded like Jeffrey doesn’t deserve

“That’s none of your business!” Jeffrey

Emeka stood up
“Jeffrey -” Kate Called him to relax
“I don’t see this conversation heading to a
safe place. Jeffrey is her Boyfriend, no
qualms..So case closed!” Elena said
“Emeka, I’m sorry for not telling -”
“You don’t need to apologize to him”
Jeffrey said in a harsh tone.

“Ah! Oga Jeffrey no vex abeg!” Jones said
“You made it clear that you wanted to be
just friends and nothing more” Jeffrey

“What’s wrong with you?” Emeka asked

“Emeka wetin now! They are dating..So
what?!” Jones pushed Emeka to sit back in
a chair.

“That enough oo!” Elena screamed
Kate could sense the annoyance in Jeffrey’s
tone. She didn’t want him to get into a
fight with Emeka because of her. So held
his hands.

“Its..Okay” she whispered
He shook his head

“Tell him you love me?” He said looking at

Kate rolled her eyes
“You can’t do it?”
She turned to Emeka
“Emeka, I love Jeffrey Adams” she said

She was willing to do it if that will make
him happy.

Emeka looked away from her looking

“Is that okay?” She asked Jeffrey
He nodded

“Kill those feelings..She’s mine!” Jeffrey
said sternly.

“They are dating, case closed” Temi hit the
desk softly.

And Emeka raised his hand up in surrender.
He lost to Jeffrey! Well it wasn’t like he was
ready to ask Kate out soon.

He would be fine with just being friends
with her. Emeka concluded.
“I guess you’re the lucky one” He

“Oga Jeffrey! Boss! Na you win the Game!
But look at how you change face because
of girl. No one will know that you can get
angry too” Jones saluted

And they laughed
“Let’s talk about our pizza party!” Temi said

“Let’s hang out this weekend too” Elena

“Who is in?”

They all raised their hands

Angella lay in her bed. She stared at the
ceiling, trying not to think about Katherine.
What she has done to her? And how she
was feeling? She tried to push Kate out of
her mind. She had been a fool to believe
Caroline’s story. It had become difficult for
her to move around the school. She was
ashamed and she was finding fault in her

Angella stay in her room, till night falls. Her
mom went to see her. She persuaded her
to eat but Angella turned over in bed and
said nothing.

She couldn’t sleep, her bones and head
ached. She was troubled by nightmares,
she kept seeing the bad things she had
done to students. Angella was terrified, it
was as if people were talking in her head.

The alarm beeped and she looked. The time
was 2:00am. Her forehead was burning
and throat felt cracked.

Angella stood up and went into the
kitchen. She gulped down a glass of water.
“Angella?” She heard her name and she
jumped in fear dropping the glass on the
floor. Her mom rushed to her.

“Are you okay?”she asked checking to see if
the glass had through cut her skin but she
was fine.

“I’m..I’m -” her voice trailed off
“Step aside let me clean up the mess” her
mom said

She grabbed a broom and swept the
broken glasses. Angella sat on the stool
with her head bent on the counter.
“Ella..” Her mom called
And she raised her head
Mr Joel had informed Mrs Benson about
Hear Angella did to her classmate together
with her friends.

“Talk to me” Mrs Benson said
Tears welled up in her eyes
“Kate..I was..jealous of her” She said

“She’s so attractive, all the Boys liked
her..even Joseph and I couldn’t stand it. I’m
a horrible person, I’ve done worst things to
some other students too because I wanted
Joseph..To be just mine” she cried
“And I should have listened to Lizzy when
she warned me but i didn’t because I
wanted to disgrace Katherine” she sobbed
“Lizzy is in trouble because of my selfish
and stupid decision. I’m a monster” she
sobbed loudly

Angella lasted three minutes in tears
before she calmed. Her mom sighed
“How do you feel?” She asked
“Terrible…” She said sincerely
“You have to apologize to Kate and maybe
everyone you’ve offended at school. It
would make you feel better” she said
“I..I..I can’t..” She wailed

“They will never forgive me” she answered
“You have to do it to take away the guilt.
Ask for forgiveness. They will forgive you”
her mom said

“You think so?” Ella asked
“To err is to human, to forgive is divine”
Mrs Benson replied with a nod
