Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 10
A NEW FRIEND
Finally, I was outside, inside the class to me smelt of humiliation and embarrassment but now I could feel the free pure air nourishing my nose, I decided to head to the cafeteria to buy some snacks to eat and head to the sports arena.
While heading to the cafeteria I couldn’t help but think about the girl in the class, the girl seems to be someone with a high status considering the reaction from the class she must be someone popular, and that feeling, the feeling I felt when I saw her, ohhh! it’s been long I felt that kind of feeling, the last time I had that feeling was when i was in Graceland academy but I kept those feelings to myself, with time I got rid of the feelings, but I think am gonna have to do the same thing now, I was interrupted by my thought by someone, calling my name, with a surprised look I turned back and saw the other new boy I saw at the principal’s office today running to catch up with me, I wanted to continue walking but I remembered my friends words about me being social, so I stood while waiting for him. When he got to me, he stretched his hand to me for a handshake, I looked at his hand for 4secs before accepting his handshake, to me it kind of felt weird receiving a handshake from someone I did not know. My name is David he said, I looked at him questioningly then I asked him, is there a problem. I just wanted to be friends with you, after all we are the only ones alone in the class, so I thought we should get along together. I looked at him trying desperately not to walk away but I finally said okay. So where are you off to he asked me. The cafeteria I simply said, well let’s move then he said. We got to the cafeteria bought some snacks, we were about to leave the cafeteria when we met the jerk, oh! I meant Kelvin, he was at the door of the cafeteria, it looked like he was waiting for us. We were about to walk past him when he blocked us, well, well, well, if it isn’t the self proclaimed scholars, he actually said that aloud thereby alerting the attention of other students in the cafeteria, gosh! I felt like dying there, what do you want, David asked him.
At least you have the guts to talk, what about your friend, Kelvin said hitting the snacks I bought to the floor, it looks like he’s dumb. I couldn’t stand there again so I walked past him outside the cafeteria. I was walking fast when David came running to me, sorry for that, he said we can share snacks if you want he said. No, thanks I retorted.
So where are we going he asked, hey look I said turning to face him, you don’t have to follow me around just because you are trying to make friends with me, besides we are not friends yet, we are just acquaintance nothing else, that was the longest sentence I have ever said since my entry into the school.
