Jake and his coursemates were at the New science hall expecting their lecturer.It was really a huge crowd as all sorts of noises were going on be it,relevant and irrelevant issues.
“You know,i hate this Physics 321..I just wanna be alone”Taiwo said in frustration as he threw his pen on the floor.
“Err…Have you gotten the solution to it Jake?.I don’t want any noise if the woman comes”Felicity asked.
“Still on it..give me few minutes”Jake replied.
Another guy,Victor by name entered and started Jesting around the hall.
“Ah..Just take a look at victor”Felicity exclaimed.
“Sss…Face what you’re doing.You aren’t here because of anyone”Taiwo spatted.
“Alright guys,i’m done with it…Have a look”Jake said and passed his notebook to them.
“Wow!…Give me five”Felicity shouted happily.”You’re really brilliant”.
“Let me see now”Taiwo said frowning.
Jake’s phone rang and he picked up.
“Hello girl”He said.
“Where are you?..We really need to talk”Jemimah said at the other end coldly.
“Is everything okay”He quizzed.
“Yes,just tell me where you’re”She replied.
“I’m at New science hall”He said.
“Are you having lectures?”She asked.
“Hmm,yes but the woman’s not around”He said and stamped on the ant trying to enter his trouser.
“Okay,on my way”She replied.
Jake smiled as he disengaged the call,he couldn’t wait to see her.Hardly had he entered to sit,when there was a stir among the male students.He turned and there was his beautiful girl,Jemimah walking in a sexy gait towards him.He smiled and stood up.The male students shouted”Oyaaaaa
aaaaa!!!”and banged the table.Jemimah covered her face shyly and smiled.Jake took her hand and led her outside.
“Jake,i’m confused”She began.
“How?..Tell me what’s bothering you”Jake asked holding her hands.
“David Ridd is disturbing me into dating him.I know how influential he’s in the school as the student Union president and also a rich guy.I wouldn’t want him to harm you.What can you do to it?.what do you think we can do?”Jemimah said.
Jake bowed his head,his mood had changed.
“Jemimah,hope i won’t lose you”He asked.
“If i have interest in dating him,i wouldn’t be here to tell you all that happened”She said and folded her arms.
“Okay,the lord will see us through”Jake said and patted her back.
“Alright baby,call me”Jemimah said.
“I have no money,infact my gas cooker has finished and no money to refill”Jake said.
“Ahnn..so you haven’t eaten?…Why didn’t you tell me?”Jemimah asked with concern.
“I don’t like the way your friends behave whenever i visit you”Jake said.
“Don’t mind them uhn…Take(opens her wallet and gives him two thousand naira)…manage..I’ll go to the Atm later to get money,so i will get you soup stuffs from the market”Jemimah said.
“Thanks…ohh..baby..That Iya is around..i have to go”Jake said and ran in as soon as he saw the lecturer’s car.
Jemimah entered the house in the evening after cooking for Jake.She met her friends eating lots of delicacies.She was puzzled.
“Hee hee(Claps her hand)….Where did you get these?”She asked,folding her arms and lips.
“Ha..It’s Uncle dave.Yours is over there”Christian
“Tonight we are going to Groovy.A friend of him is celebrating birthday for his girlfriend.We can’t miss it including you”Eniola said and bit her chicken.
“Both of you are thieves”Jemimah said.
“Aww,call us anything.We only know the rich and not the poor..Durhh”Eniola said and rolled her eyeballs.
“Uncle dave asked us to give you this.(pointa money)”Christinah said.
Jemimah collected it and counted.To her surprise,it was a two hundred thousand naira.She walkes towards her bed.There were three shopping bags filled with clothes and accessories.
“You’d better date david…uhn uhn…I told you o”Eniola said as she opened up the foil cover of the shawarma.
Jemimah was lost in thought.She was really confused and her friends weren’t surprised when in the evening she dressed up to follow them to the party.
David sent a Range rover to pick them up from their off-campus home.
The party was a real mindblowing one.All sorts of assorties were displayed.David took Jemimah around everywhere he went.Jemimah was beginning to like him as he had good sense of humour,funny and lively.David asked her to sit as he went towards the microphone.
“Hello everyone..”He spoke.
There was a huge noise of Dave dollars as that was the nickname his pals gave to him due to his wealth.He laughed and waved his hand for decorum to be.
“All of you guys are urging me to go get married and remember i do tell you,i haven’t found my rose.But now i have and i’m using this medium to introduce to you,Miss Jemimah Typer.Can you please step forward,Sweetheart?”He said pointing at jemimah.
All eyes were on jemimah as she stood up shyly.There was a loud ovation from the crowd.David’s friends came forward to give the duo handshake,lots of envelope was deposited into Jemmy’s hands.She was surprised as she wasn’t the one doing birthday.She later learnt there was no birthday.It’s just a set up party.
David took her to the backyard and knelt before her.
“Jemimah,i really love you.I’m not here to date you,i’m here to make you my wife.I hope my gestures here will convince you that i care.Allow me in your world,let’s come together to raise a newfamily which would rule the world.I love you and that’s never gonna change”He spoke with a very convincing and emotional tone.
Tears welled in Jemimah’s eyes.She had fallen for David!!.
