“Someone is going to have quite an experience today.” David said to I and Bright in a stoic manner.
“Wait; what has this girl done to deserve your attention so much?” I asked already having empathy for the girl as he had not even disclosed whatever were his conceptions but I could guess that whatever was going through his mind was something spine-chilling.
“Don’t worry bro. Are you in this with me?” he asked looking at me expectantly.
“Nope. Please count me out.” I said shaking my head at him.
“I don’t even have an idea about what you are talking about here. Who is this girl?” I asked.
“Jemima.” replied Bright with a smirk on his face.
“Jemima?” I asked looking at David for confirmation.
“Yep, it’s Jemima or you got a crush on her too?” he asked with a serious look.
“No. But what are you guys planning to do?” I asked.
“Keep cool man, I’ve got things under control. I just wish to give her a little pathing gift. One she will never forget all her life.” David said clenching his fist as he spoke.
“Count me out of this Bro.” I said.
“I begged her but she laughed at me. She won’t even need to plead because I will make things easy for her. She won’t ever forget this day. Ever.” He said laughing hysterically.
I feared David at moments like this.
“Guys, am out of here. See you at the hall.” I said conclusively as I left David’s House.
David had been my best friend for 6 years, and I realized whatever he planned to do must be something terrible.
He knew Jemima had a crush on me; well virtually the whole class knows that. I had been told by a friend that he asked her out and she refused.
“Is he trying to get back at her?” I marveled at how I had his type of friend.
“I hope this girl does not come, she looks so naive and innocent.” I prayed silently.
As for who I am?
I am Christopher Bankole; the only Child of my Divorced Parents.
I live with my over-protective mum and I get to spend my days out with my friend David; it doesn’t matter to my mum as long as I return home before 10pm.
David had really influenced me a lot I must say but at that moment I felt like my friend was really bad than I imagined .
A flashback of when I first encountered Jemima crossed my mind.
“So much for an innocent girl.” I said smiling. I realized I might have to risk saving her from whatever David had planned but how to do that was still a dead end.
What am I supposed to do?
Watch out for the next episode.
