FEELING SHY 2
When the three of us entered the class together, I could hear whispers from different directions even some of my class mates pointed hands to the three of us. Elena who was beside me seemed to notice my distress whispered to me, hey don’t mind them, with the sound of her voice close to my ears I felt my confidence building up so I just ignored the class, I was also on the lookout for Kelvin because he may show up at any time. When we sat down I mustered some courage and asked Elena a question, of all the people in the class why will you choose to make friends with me.
Excuse me why would you say that? she asked turning to face me, there’s nothing special about me, I mean, am not wealthy or popular like other kids in the class, so I don’t see any reason why you will want to be acquainted with someone like me. then she spoke to me angrily What Did you just say?, well to tell you the truth I have always been the type of person everyone wanted to be friends with just because of my status, so when I moved to this school my decision was to remain Isolated from my new classmates, but when I walked into the class I saw everyone looking at me like a ghost except one person, he was busy solving a question on his book, he did not react when I sat with him nor did he try to talk to me. So I decided to be friends with him and I can’t believe that this person would think that I would make friends with other kids in the class just because they are popular and wealthy. I could feel she was hurt by my words just now, d--n I really screwed up this time I thought to myself, but I was interrupted from my thoughts by her next words, don’t worry since you don’t want to be friends with me, I won’t disturb you again, with that she turned her attention to the book she was reading. What Should I do now I thought to myself, after some minutes i mustered some courage then said, am sorry Elena, she didn’t reply me, apologized again, am sorry Elena I said, this time I turned to looked her. She then asked coldly, what do you want now, Am sorry I said looking at her nervously, I promise to change from now onwards, I will always be cheerful around you but she still didn’t give me her attention. Then I bit my lips and held one of her hand, OMG I can’t believe I actually took the initiative to hold her hand and oh! Her hands felt smooth and soft. Elena please say something I said to her, it’s okay I have forgiven you and please don’t say something like that to me again she said. Okay ma I replied her, then she looked at me with a frown on her face, what is it I asked, won’t you leave my hand? She asked me. Oh! Sorry I said retracting my hand embarrassingly. I noticed she was reading a chemistry textbook so I asked her, which topic are you reading? Well, am trying to comprehend acid, bases and salts and it looks so complicated to me she retorted, I could help you out if you care I said to her, really? I think I would have to bother you now she replied. Okay let’s start I said, while all this was was happening I was secretly observing Kelvin who was currently looking at us, and I could tell that the expression on his face was not good at all, but the surprising thing is that he didn’t come to annoy me, I guessed it was because of Elena’s presence that’s why he has not been bothering me.
