💐HE IS MINE 💐
💐 Sophie 💐
I ate my food and retired to my room.
I brought my book to study.
I don’t know why but my mind is off from what am even studying.
I sighed and closed the book.
I lay on the bed staring at the ceiling.
The question Anna once asked came back to my memory.
” Do you like Andrew?
Do I like Andrew?
Well it is normal to like something though and besides he is different his friends.
He is handsome, nice and caring.
He has been friendly to me ever since I got to the school.
He is my friend so why won’t I like him?
I like Andrew”
But why did Anna ask?
My phone rang interrupting my thoughts
I checked the caller.
I smiled and picked it up.
” Sophie” he said.
” So how are you doing?
“Am fine and you?
” Am good ” he said.
” Uhm okay”
” Why do I feel like you are smiling” he said.
I gasped a little.
How did he know am smiling.
” Uhnmm..I..am not smiling” I said
” Yes of course” I said.
” You really don’t know how to lie” he said.
” Uhn..so when are we starting the teaching? I asked changing the topic.
” I don’t know yet”
” Really? I don’t think you are ready to learn” I said.
” Am ready to learn” he said.
” So tell me when?
” Okay, tomorrow” he said.
” Yeah” he said.
” But soph.. I don’t want it in the school, you know I want it somewhere else” he said.
” Why are you laughing?
” You don’t want the students to see bad boy Andrew learning.. you don’t want people to see me teaching dull brain Andrew” I said laughing.
” Am not a dull Brain Sophie” he said.
” Really? I asked laughing.
” Stop laughing soph, it’s not funny”
” Not until you accept that you are a dull brain”
” Okay, I agree with you, can you stop laughing now?
I stopped laughing.
” Good girl”
” Now tell me where?
” Why don’t you come to my place? He asked.
” Your.. your ..place? I stuttered.
” Yeah, let’s study together at my place” he said.
I went silent.
” Sophie, is something wrong with that? He asked .
” Come on Sophie, I hope you are not thinking dirty” he said.
” No am not”
” So is it fine by you?
” I will think about it” I said.
” Think about it? Do you have to?
” Okay then, talk to you later” he said.
” Alright, bye”
I hung up.
I and Andrew will be studying together at Andrew’s place?
” Sophie, what’re you thinking?
” It is just studying” I said to myself.
I got up from bed and prepared for school.
I got down to the dinning and saw a small paper there.
I opened it.
” Princess, we won’t be coming home tonight, look after yourself, here is some money for you” it’s read.
I folded it back and dropped it on the table.
I picked the money that was kept on the dinning table.
I prepared myself bread and tea with egg for breakfast.
I finished my breakfast and walked out of the house.
I got out of the gate and saw Andrew standing by the car.
He smiled and opened the door for me.
I entered into the car.
He drove off.
” Why didn’t you inform me that you are standing out the gate? I asked.
” Nothing” he shrugged.
” Uhnmmm” I nodded my head.
” How was your night?
” Great and urs”
” Not great, I was just thinking all through the night” he said.
” Thinking? Why? I Asked.
” Nothing” he said.
I stare at him.
” Do you wanna have a picture?
” In your dreams” I said.
We got into the school and he parked.
Before he could get down to open the door for me.
I got down myself.
” Boring Sophie” he said.
” I will see you later Sophie” he said.
” Where to?
” I need to catch up with something” he said.
“What’s that? I asked.
” Talk to you later Sophie, I will be back” he said getting into the car.
I watched him drove off.
So he only came to drop me in school.
He is really nice and so sweet.
I smiled and walked away going into my class.
Someone bumped into me making me almost fall down.
I sighed and I realized it is stupid Kara.
” Are you blind? She yelled.
I looked at her.
” It is you who is blind” I said.
” Really? She asked.
” Yeah, you know you’ve got a big problem, you bumped into me and all you could do is to yell? Don’t you have manners at all? I said angrily.
” Well i should have known slut like you don’t have common sense, you have wasted all your senses sleeping around shamelessly with boys, opening you leg for both cats and dogs” I said.
She raised her hand to slap me but I was quick enough.
I held her hand.
” You wanna slap me?
” I laughed.
” Kara, don’t mess with me, am not who you think I am,” I said sternly and threw her hand away.
” Who do you think you are? She Asked angrily.
” Am Sophie Lawrence” I said
She looked at me with her mouth opened.
I moved closer to her and join her lips together.
” You never can tell, fly might find its way into your mouth if not closed” I said walking away.
I smiled satisfactorily.
I walked into the class and dropped my bag.
I sat a paper boldly written.
” Stay away from him” it’s reads.
I took it and tore it.
” Stay away from him?
I sat down.
” Who wrote this?
” Who is she talking about?
Anna entered into class and ignored me walking to her seat.
I wanted to stand up to meet her but the teacher came in.
I sat down quietly on my seat to receive my lecture.
The bell rang indicating lunch break.
I saw Anna walking out of the class.
I need to speak to her.
” Why is she behaving like this?
” Anna, wait” I shouted walking behind her.
She didn’t bother to look back.
She kept on walking.
I walked faster and caught up with her.
I held her hand but she jerk it off.
” What do you want? She asked.
” Anna, ever since yesterday you just change towards me” I said.
” What’s going on Anna? I asked.
” Did I do something wrong? Did I say something bad to you, have I offended you in anyway? Why the sudden change Anna,? What’s wrong? You..
” Enough Sophie, please” she half yelled.
I looked at her.
” What do you want Anna? I asked.
“Do you like Andrew? She asked.
” Why do you ask? I arched my brow.
” Just Answer me, do you like him?
” Well I don’t know” I shrugged.
She looked at me
” But what has Andrew got to do with your attitude? I asked.
She looked at me.
” Until you are ready to tell me if you like Andrew or not” she said and walked away.
” What’s has Andrew got to do with this?
” Why is she so interested in me liking Andrew?
” What’s is going on? I thought.
I bumped into someone without knowing I shut my eyes.
I was waiting to land on the floor but something was holding me.
I opened my eyes and saw Jeremy.
He is the one I bumped into.
I straightened up.
” Uhmmm… sorry” I said.
” Are you okay? He asked.
” Yeah, am fine, thanks” I said.
” What are you thinking about? He asked.
” Uhmmm..it is nothing” I said
” But you looked Disturbed”
” Me? No am fine, thanks”
” Do you mind having lunch with me?
” No thanks, am not hungry” I said and walked away.
Kayla appeared at my front from no where.
She crossed her arms on her chest staring at her.
I tried walking away but she blocked me.
” What do you want? I asked.
” Good question” she said.
” I have no time for all of this” I said sternly.
” Really? She smirked.
” What do you want? I half yelled.
” I want you to stay away from Jay” she yelled.
” You want me to stay away from Jeremy? I asked.
” And how is that even possible? I asked.
” Stay away from Jay, he is mine only” she said.
” Yours? The last time I checked, he humiliated you in front of everyone, he slapped you and insulted you” I said.
” And that is none of your business” she said.
” Really, and what made you think jay will like you have something to do with slut like you except to sleep with you” I said.
” Am sure it is not only jay who has gotten into that rotten thing between your legs” I smirked.
She looked at me with so much anger.
” Watch your tongue” she yelled.
” It would have been better you watch yours instead” I said and pushed her away.
I hissed and walked into my class.
