***Off Campus ****
Anthony picks up his phone on the second ring…He grimaced when he heard the voice on the other end.
“Baby? Where have you been. .are you avoiding me? I don’t see you in class anymore and you refuse picking my calls. I miss your face ‘”
“Victoria? ?” He asked. He took the phone off his ears for a minute and was tempted to cut it.
“Are you there ?? ” The voice asked
“I have just been busy with stuff. ” He lied
“But thanks for checking up on me. You really don’t have to do that. ”
He cuts in. He must have said that line a milion times. It’s been three years..doesn’t a girl ever give up.?
“Really Anthony?..tell me why you don’t like me..I do everything for you to notice how good I could be with you but you just dont see it why? I really do want you. Tell me what I can do for you to give me a chance. ??”
Anthony thought for a second. He could easily tell her that he doesn’t date loose girls or skanks. Especially the one most lecturers and student have gone through for the sake of giving her good grades. It was disgusting. He was a guy …but for a girl…it was a no-no plus he picked his girls .
He looked back at Amara sleeping on his bed. Her naked body excites him. He met her last week. She was pretty. She pleased him. But after that, he was hoping she leaves soon. He couldn’t possibly have anything serious with a loose girl and frankly speaking Victoria was queen of loose girls.
“Nothing. I don’t hate you. Look Victoria we have a test this afternoon and I have to head to class. ” He says hurriedly
He heard her gasp ……” a test?? Oh yes a test. That means you would come to class today right?”.
Could she be any dafter?
He sighs and cuts the call. She couldn’t be bothered about the test as he be bothered about them ever having a thing. But he needed to be in class. He could skip lectures, but test and exams he couldn’t do away it.
He walks to the sleeping form and drops a note by her side and transport to take her back to UST.
He leaves .
*** Somewhere on East West Road****
“Why are we going back to school? We just left there. weren’t we going to skip the last class and head out to town and meet up those dudes” Sandra asked checking herself from the side mirror
“We have a test today!!” Victoria said as she made a U-turn back the way she came.
“Oh really!! So…has it ever bothered you before? After all Mr Bamidele is going to score you high. Whether you are there or not. But this fine dudes won’t wait for ever. ” Sandra offered. Bunmi preferred to listen than to chip in.
“Not when Anthony is going to be there . Those dudes can wait. .or we can always see them. .but Anthony has been like an epileptic light for weeks. Why would I want to pass meeting him up? We are going to write the test. End of discussion ”
Victoria faced the road and ended any more distractions.
The two girls looked at each other and smiled… No one can stop Victoria from seeing Anthony. .
They drove back in silence.
***Uniport premises . Class room***
Grace had excused herself to go pee.
Rose watched as queen Victoria and her vicky – devils entered the class room scanning the room and taking their seats.
She watched in admiration as Anthony walked in and almost laughed as the guys all wanted to shake him and the girls all wanted to throw themselves at him but one look from Victoria made them bite their lips and sit still.
She watched as Victoria flung herself at him and purrs “miss you baby” and how frantically he fought to disengage her from his Greek-god body And Victoria pretended not to care.
She hoped Grace would come back in time as the class calmed , before Mr Bamidele would begin sharing the test scripts. She didn’t want her to be late for her first test.
Victoria couldn’t keep her hands to herself and Anthony had a look of disgust on his face. But everything changed as soon as Grace walked back in, her hair in a bun, a pretty face all too visible and the air smelled of her perfume as she strolled right in ….passing him and sitting .
Rose was used to having men stare after Grace. She was pretty. But when she followed Anthony ‘ s eyes, she knew his was one of pure admiration and he was the only one who didnt turn away and his pen had slipped away from his fingers and he didn’t notice. But his eyes held on.
Rose quickly looks at Victoria. …then she knew.
As soon as she noticed Victoria ‘ s eyes had turned to red slits and her fist folded to show anger.
Rose ‘ s heart skipped……”Damn!!! Grace is in trouble”!!!!
