“What are you doing with my girlfriend?” he asked.
Segun pretended as if he didn’t hear what he said. He looked back as if he was helping him search for his girlfriend. In a blink of an eye a slap was release atomically on segun’s handsome face. Before Segun could react, the guy had slapped Olanike too.
“It’s over between us!” The guy shouted.
“Emmanuel please, it’s not what you think.” olanike explained with a shaky voice. She tried holding him but he freed his hands and released another slap on her face.
Just then Segun stood up and retaliated with two hot slaps on Emmanuel’s face. Causing him to stagger backwards. Emmanuel face segun with a burning eyes, then he carried a chair with the aim of hitting Segun with it but Segun was fast enough to push Olanike out of danger and blocked the chair from hitting him with his hands. He pushed Emmanuel to the ground and said.
“You’re a disgrace for hitting your girlfriend. Even if she is cheating, there are better way through which you can call her back to order and not by humilliating her in public.” Emmanuel stood up angrily but before he could take another step, other candidates in the examination hall had held him and bundled him out immediately.
“I’ll catch you later, you fool and as for you, Dam, don’t ever come near me again”. He ranted on and on as he left the examination hall.
“Am very sorry about that.” olanike said packing her books.
“No problem.” segun replied.
Segun sat down and thought about the incidence that just took place, he smiled. He was suprised, he muster such courage to face such an angry guy. He opened his textbook and continued reading. Olanike on her own part was seated on her seat head bent on her locker holding back tears.
“So, i have finally lost Emma? But is it a crime to be friends with another guy? Does that mean am cheating? Or maybe they both have an unfinished business before. What am i thinking? I met this guy just last week. It’s not possible we have started dating. I’ll have to explain myself to Emma.” she thought to herself.
Meanwhile jummy had been watching the unfolding drama since. She decided to talk to Segun.
“Hey! Good afternoon.” she said immediately she got to segun’s seat.
“Good afternoon.” segun replied without looking up.
“What just went wrong between you and your girlfriend?”
“You’re sick.” segun cursed inwardly.
“She’s not my girlfriend.”
“So you guys aren’t dating and you could defend her by taking such risk?” She asked smilling.
“I don’t like when guys treat girls bad.” He said.
“Anyways, i just came to say hi, and to commend you for your ‘jack bauer’s’ action.
“Thanks.” he replied laughing.
She left for her seat while segun continued reading. Just then Emma entered the exam hall and went straight to Segun’s seat. He got there and handed him a piece of paper.
