Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 18

#ANGELINA

The next day at campus, news about Happiness’s kidnap was been discussed by the entire student body.. Some hoped her safe delivery and hoped she returned unharmed, while some people did otherwise.

Peter who listened to all that was going on kept quiet and felt like he was also responsible for the situation Happiness was in, So I stayed by his side and cheered him up.

In a couple of month, We the final year students will be graduating 🎓 but that won’t be possible if the security standards don’t improve, We even heard a rumor that we were going on an indefinite strike until the security issue was resolved.. Of course even though it was a rumor nobody liked the idea of going to strike when we were just months away from leaving campus life.

Later that day in class, Peter and I sat together closely, he was busy telling me about what we would do to save happiness and also stop the strike from happening.

.

Peter ➡ We seriously can’t stand by and do nothing.. I’m tired honestly and the strike thing… I won’t stand it…

.

Angelina ➡ Well, what are we going to do? You said no snitching to the police, right?

.

Peter ➡ Yeah. But after what I witnessed yesterday.. I can’t keep quiet anymore.. Even though we’re not related, Happiness is our friend.

.

Angelina ➡ So what now?

.

Peter ➡ Remember that female detective, Denise?

.

Angelina ➡ The one that kidnapped us? Yeah..

.

Peter ➡ Well, she looks trustworthy… Maybe we should tell her what we know. What do you think?

.

Angelina ➡ Why are you asking me? I’m following whatever you decide.. But are you sure about this?

.

Peter ➡ No.. But we’ve got to take the bull by the horn and see what happens.

.

Angelina ➡ Good.. Just know that.. If we die.. I’ll k*ll you.

.

Peter ➡ Okay sure..

.

Later that day, Peter And I got separated.. He went to another class while I went to the dance class to work on my footwork..

While I was in the class practising some dance moves, My Dance instructor Mrs. Aline called me to her office.

.

Angelina ➡ Good afternoon ma.

.

Aline ➡ Afternoon Angelina.. Have a seat.

.

As I took my seat, Aline began to stare at me in a suspicious way for some minutes before she started to talk.

.

Aline ➡ Did you attend a street dance yesterday?

..

Angelina ➡ Yes.. Is there a problem?

.

Aline ➡ No… I saw a video of your dance battle yesterday and I was impressed.. You have a great talent.. But I’m afraid you’re putting it to waste.

.

Angelina ➡ Huh? Waste? How?

.

Aline ➡ Good question… You see dancing is more like adapting and evolving, when you dance, you learn new steps and techniques but in other to became a great dancer you need to watch and learn from great dancers as well,.. Those you danced with yesterday are not in your league.. They’re nothing to write home about.. They’re good but not that good… You need to be out there learning and dancing with the pros so you can hone your skills.

The reason why I called you to my office is because there’s a dance competition that is going to hold in Europe in 3months, best dancers from all over the world are going to attend this competition.. It’s going to be massive. The dancers are very good but you’re no slouch yourself, I’m sure with the time provided you could improve greatly on your skills . The competition is been sponsored by one wealthy dance school, they’re look for the best dancer that they would employ to teach in their school, and that’s not the best part, anyone who wins the competition gets a million dollar cash prize, this isn’t just an opportunity, this is also a job offer as well.. No need for you to hustle or suffer your legs getting a job here in Nigeria.

.

Angelina ➡ Wow. Thanks for the offer but why me?

.

Aline ➡ Angelina, I’ve seen and taught many students over the years some of them are good dancers but none of them could match up to you.. They dance because they want fame and glory but you dance with passion, you love dancing, it’s in you, I’ve watched and observed you, like I said you have great talent.. and your talent needs to be shown to the world, You staying in Nigeria would only waste your talent even if you do succeed in getting a job here, you know how men are, with this lovely body of yours, They’ll be using their power on you to do as they please.. I’m not saying that doesn’t happen in abroad but over there it’s rare for someone to do thatsomethingngelina ➡ Thanks ma.. But I’ll have to think about it..

.

Aline ➡ Sure take your time.. Just let me know when you finally decide.

.

After that, I left her office… Back in the dance class, I began to think about the offer.. It was great and I would love to go to Europe and dance but what about Peter.. There is so much I would want us to do together, now that we’re getting more and more into each other, but there’s something i would like to know… Does Peter love me? I love Peter wholeheartedly and there’s nothing that will make me stop loving him but it’s good if I know how he feels about me.

My thoughts was suddenly interrupted by the sound of laughter from Cindy and the others, they were talking excitedly so I decided to go and check out what was up.

.

Angelina ➡ Hey ladies.. What’s going on?

.

Jane ➡ We’re just talking about the upcoming Valentine 💝.

.

Aisha ➡ Yeah and we were wondering what would our guys give us? I’m hoping to get an iPhone 12..

.

Cindy ➡ Twelve? Already? You hausa babes are too greedy… You already have iPhone 11 now.

.

Aisha ➡ That’s none of your business besides I need to upgrade.. My phone is getting old.

.

Jane ➡ Jesus! Old? You just started using it last month.

.

Aisha ➡ Well, I don’t want 11, I want 12.. My baby boyfriend can provide it… 350,000 is no sweat.

.

Angelina ➡ See her mouth.. Money is money.. And 350k is a big sweat.. That’s the problem of this rich people, they think everything is easy..

.

Aisha ➡ Look who’s talking.. Aren’t your family rich?

.

Angelina ➡ They are and they also love to spend but there’s something that they taught me and that is gratitude and contentment.

.

Cindy ➡ Tell am o..

.

Jane ➡ So Angelina. What’s Peter going to buy for you during this Valentine?.

.

Angelina ➡ Well, I’m not sure.. In fact, I don’t think I’ll get anything.. But its okay.. It’s the thought that counts.

.

As soon as I said that, They all began to laugh at my expense. Maybe I should have just lied.. Peter wasn’t used to all this Valentine stuff, I would really love to get something from him but if he doesn’t, I don’t mind.

.

Aisha ➡ Wai… God forbid.. No man would dare not to give me anything on Valentine.

.

Cindy ➡ I swear.. Girl.. You need to wake up.. I’m even surprised at you.. You’re a calabar girl and you’re not acting like one.. The Calabar girls I know are demanding and they get what they want but you.. Chai.

.

Jane ➡ See Angelina.. You’re wasting yourself on that church rat.. You’re going to make him to be degrading you.. Haba! See as you fine, see figure, see bre-sts, see nyarsh, Packaging everywhere.. You have all these killer assets and you’re wasting them on some Cheap Charlie.. Even if he can’t buy you some expensive stuff, he should at least buy you something to show that he cares for you.

.

Angelina ➡ Hmm, What you say actually makes sense but that is not important to me.. Because you know why?

.

All ➡ Why?

.

Angelina ➡ 😍 Because I’m madly in love with the guy.

.

Cindy ➡ My God! What has this guy done to you? You’ve been compromised. Your brain needs formating..

.

Aisha ➡ I agree, you need to start thinking like a woman and especially like a calabar chick.

.

Angelina ➡ Whatever…. I need to get going.. I’m done here.. See you later.

.

All ➡ Later o..

.

I left the girls and went out of the dance class, the moment I stepped outside, I saw that ebira detective in his car looking at me direction, when our eyes met, he quickly drove away… I begin to wonder what was that all about.. Shortly after that, I headed to the cafeteria to see if Peter was there, but as I got there the only person I saw was David.

.

David ➡ Angelina sweetie.. Sup?

.

Angelina ➡ Don’t call me that… Have you seen Peter?

.

David ➡ That loser.. No.. He’s not my business.

.

Angelina ➡ Whatever fool.

.

David ➡I must say I underestimated that cheap Charlie of yours.

.

Angelina ➡ So you’ve finally realized that he’s a whole better guy than you..

.

David ➡ No.. I just admired his Casanova skills, he’s quite a player… First he snatched you from me and now he’s playing tag with Zainab.

.

Angelina ➡ I was never yours to begin with…??? Wait. Did you say he was with Zainab?

.

David ➡ Yeah.

.

Angelina ➡ Liar.. Your lies won’t work on me.

.

David ➡ Oh but I have proof. Want to see?

..

David brought out his phone and showed me a picture of Peter inside Zainab’s car.. My heart skipped a beat when I saw that.. What was Peter doing in her car? David chuckled as he saw the look of disbelief on my face.

.

David ➡ See! How does it feel to be betrayed? Instead of being with a winner like me you decided to throw yourself at a loser like Peter.. You know, since you’re still looking fresh, you still have a chance to be with me..

.

I felt insulted when I heard that, just who does this David think he is? What makes him think that I’ll waltz back into his arms.. God forbid.

.

David ➡ Alright now give me back my phone.

.

David stretched out his hand to collect his phone, I stretched my hands out a little bit and let go of the phone, it fell down and smashed on the ground.

.

SMASH!!!!

.

David’s eyes popped wide open with shock as he saw his phone’s censor break into pieces.

.

Angelina ➡ Oops.. Sorry. It slipped from my hand.

.

After that, I walked out on David and left the cafeteria… As I walked aimlessly around the campus wondering about the picture I saw in David’s phone. That Zainab! What in the world is she doing with my Peter? I bet she’s trying to make me jealous.. And as for Peter.. I’m going to give him an earful when I get my hands on him.

In that moment, My eyes caught a glimpse of John’s car again, this time around he was in his car using a binocular to check on the students, I quickly moved out of sight and went back to my department.. Something was odd.. Why was John here? Was he looking for someone, if he is then who?

As soon as I got to my department, I saw Peter standing in front of the admin building, as soon as our eyes met, he approached me.

.

Peter ➡ There you are! I’ve been looking for you.

.

Angelina ➡ Mr. Man.. We need to talk now.

.

Peter ➡ What is it?

.

BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!

.

Before I could say anything, I was rudely interrupted by John’s car horn, I was even surprised to see him… Was he following me?

The Idi*t came down from his car and headed towards our direction.. When Peter saw him, he gasped in shock.

.

Peter ➡ Oh my God! This cannot be.

.

Angelina ➡ Peter what is it?

.

#PETER

Hours Earlier……

Hmm, what a day! Every student in campus is going on about with their usual stuff but they can’t help but discuss about Happiness’s kidnap… Poor girl.. I could have saved her but I couldn’t… I couldn’t help but think about what Denise said, perhaps maybe if I had cooperated with her earlier maybe this wouldn’t have happened to Happiness and now the kidnappers are planning on taking Angelina.. I can’t let that happen. But if I’m going to talk to Denise, I have to make sure she can be trusted, I don’t want a situation where I’ll put myself and those that I care about in danger.

And Speaking of Angelina, I could remember what happened last night between us.. That girl, she’s caring things a bit too far.. I love her but I still don’t know why I can’t tell her.. I was even surprised when I found out that mom knew about what happened.. Earlier that morning, Angelina was outside waiting for me, I was getting dressed when mom came into my bedroom with the usual eyeing look on her face.

.

Peter ➡ What is it mom?

.

Jessica ➡ You rascal.. You kids are getting overboard these days… Tell me did you sleep with Angelina?.

.

Peter ➡ What?

.

Jessica ➡ There is no use pretending.. I overheard everything last night.. It’s kind of funny when two young adults of opposite gender are left alone, the unexpected happens.

.

Peter ➡ If you overheard everything, then you should know we didn’t do anything last night.

.

Jessica ➡ And I’m proud of you… You’re worthy of being called a real man.. And the way you talked last night.. I’m sure you’ve made that girl fallen more in love with you.

.

Peter ➡ Thanks. But if I may ask.. If we had done it last night. Would you have interrupted?

.

Jessica ➡ No, Why should I? After all, you’re both adults and you have the will to do what is right or wrong.. The only I do know is that if she had gotten pregnant… You’ll be the only one to take care of the responsibility.. After all, it’s your doing.

.

I laughed to myself when I remembered the conversation between mom and myself.. And she was right.. I’m sure if we had done it last night, Angelina would have gotten pregnant cause I had no CDs at the time.

So after we had separated in class, I went and met with Salim and the others. They were sitting in the students lounge relaxing comfortably without any worries in their minds.

.

Salim ➡ Peter the great.

.

Peter ➡ Kwarto.. How far?

.

Salim ➡ Mallam, I’m fine.

.

Kevin ➡ Peter.. How far.. How Angelina nah?

.

Peter ➡ She dey fine.. So what’s up?

.

Michael ➡ Guy, you get liver o. You dey with sweet luscious Angelina and now you dey hang with Zainab.

.

Peter ➡ Wait. How did you know?

.

Salim ➡ So wait o.. Are you b*nging the b-tch?.

.

Peter ➡ Hell no.. She just asked me to tutor her in her house that’s all.

.

Kevin ➡ Chai… I see a song coming on.. One on one tutoring.. Let’s see.. Monkey style or fish style? 😂

.

Peter ➡ Kev.. You dey mad.

.

Salim ➡ Mallam, if I were you… Kai.. I’ll get that girl pregnant..

.

Michael ➡ Tell am o.. She get money… M-O-N-E-Y!! MONEY O…

.

Peter ➡ Hold on. I don’t care about her wealth and second of all, I’m in interested in her and lastly.. I’m with Angelina.. Period.

.

Salim ➡ Look Angelina is the cream of the crop. I won’t argue but Zainab has moolah.. Kudi..

.

Peter ➡ Nope.. Not interested..

.

Michael ➡ Hmm, well brother.. You loose.. So anyway… What are you getting for Angelina this Valentine?

.

Peter ➡ Valentine?

.

Kevin ➡ Yes now…

.

Peter ➡ Well, I don’t know.. I haven’t thought of it.

.

Salim ➡ Waiyoo! I ought to slap you.. You don’t know.. Peter.. You have a gem like Angelina and you haven’t thought of giving anything for Valentine?

.

Peter ➡ Hey.. This is my first relationship and I haven’t gone deep into the matter.. When is the valentine?

.

Salim ➡ About two weeks from now.

.

Peter ➡ Hmm, let’s see… What do you think she’ll like?

.

Kevin ➡ Why are you asking us? Aren’t you the one that knows her well?

.

Peter ➡ I know her likes and hates but I want to surprise her with something new.

.

Salim ➡ Buy her a Mercedes, it’s cheap.

.

Peter ➡ You dey mad!? I don’t even have the money for the tire not to talk of the whole car.

.

Kevin ➡ Buy her a phone.. Like Samsung galaxy S10+

.

Peter ➡ Look, you’re all listing something that are way too much for my account savings… I want to get her something she’ll cherish.

.

Michael ➡ Hmm, take her out on a romantic dinner.. Take her someplace special and buy her something that shows that you care for her.

.

Peter ➡ Thanks Mike.. You head dey correct.. I think that’s what I’ll do.

.

Salim ➡ Cheap charlie.

.

Peter ➡ Shut up, Kwarto.

.

After that, I decided to spend some time there with the guys, Hours later, I soon got bored and decided to leave the place and look for Angelina.. As soon as I got to the admin block, I saw her coming towards the department, I waved at her and she saw me, I went to her place so that we could find someplace else to hang out just the two of us..

As we were talking to each other, a car beeped behind us interrupting our conversation… The driver of the car came down and approached us. I was shocked when I saw his face… Angelina who saw how disturbed I was asked what was wrong.

.

Angelina ➡ What is it, Peter?

.

Peter ➡ Hold on..

.

As the guy came to where we were, he began to stare at us one by one, he focused his gaze most especially at Angelina.

.

John ➡ So are you done running?

.

Angelina ➡ What do you want?

.

John ➡ I’ve been keeping an eye on you two.. Especially you Angelina.. I believe you both know something about this kidnappings.. If you heartless people know something.. Better spit it out now.. People are losing their loved ones..

.

Angelina was about to talk when I stopped her..

.

Peter ➡ Excuse me.. But I don’t know you.

.

John ➡ I’m detective John.. I’m working on this case with Denise.. I interrogated Angelina.

.

Peter ➡ Okay John.. It should be clear by now.. If we had any information, we would have already talked since.. Denise offered us millions to talk but we don’t know.. Our friend was kidnapped yesterday.. If we had known anything about the kidnapper, we would have reported it since. So I think you had better leave us alone. We have nothing and we know nothing. Good day sir.

.

After that, I dragged Angelina with me, As soon as we were out of earshot, Angelina began to ask about what I did.

.

Angelina ➡ What was that all about? I thought you said you would talk!

.

Peter ➡ That guy is a detective?

.

Angelina ➡ Yes… He interrogated me when we were both apprehended. What’s wrong?

.

Peter ➡ Do you remember the time I told you I saw Alhaji Sule talking to one guy in a restaurant?

.

Angelina ➡ Yes..

.

Peter ➡ Angelina.. This John is the guy.. He is the mole.. He’s working for Alhaji Sule.

.

Angelina ➡ What?? Are you sure?

.

Peter ➡ I’m positive.

.

Angelina ➡ What do we do now?

.

Peter ➡ Now… We contact Denise to meet us. I have a plan on how to bust this kidnapping circle once and for all.
