The issue with the arrangement wasn’t just because they were all ladies but these were girls who believed for some reasons they were better than me. I forgot to mention they were three girls. Thinking about them made me remember the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Bible. But unlike the three gentlemen, these ladies were rooting for the bad things and I had to be an Angel to save them from themselves. It would have been much easier if they were people who were willing to learn but had difficulty with understanding. Unfortunately, these girls were the ‘slay queens’ of the class. All I ever heard them talk about was which wig is currently the most expensive, who had the richest ‘sugar daddy’ and of course, sex-related issues.
Lordina who happens to be the first on the List was sitting right in front of me. Just like me, she mostly doesn’t talk in class, but when she is with her two buddies, you will be amazed at the things she could say. I am always reading, but my ears are very attentive. I pick information from every angle of the class, without even looking. As compared to the other three, Lordina was much receptive so I started from her. I wasn’t sure Miss Faustina told them so I had to explain to them. The funny thing about the whole arrangement was that Miss Faustina usually doesn’t see ‘eye to eye’ with these girls. I heard that they once insulted her but I didn’t want to allow ‘hear-say mal the good intentions of my goddess.
“Please can I have a seat by your side?” I said to Lordina during break. She didn’t raise her head immediately. She started looking at me from my leg and finally to my face. It was as if she wanted to determine how expensive my shoes are in order to decide whether or not I qualify to sit by her. One thing was clear to me, I wasn’t doing it to please them but my crush. When I am motivated, I do not give up until I accomplish the goals set. Instead of words, she nodded in agreement. It wasn’t the best of response but that was a great improvement. My fear was that she would walk out on me before I could speak. So having a seat offered me by her was an accomplishment I was proud of.
Lordina just like the other two ladies, Daniella and Vivian was very beautiful. She had a light skin, with darker lips. Her lips always made her outstanding. Female teachers mostly concluded she had a lipstick applied. As if it wasn’t enough, she was curvy, with eyes of an owl. In fact, she was very beautiful. I understood why everyone especially ‘sugar daddies’ wanted to have a piece of her. As soon as I sat by her, most people who were still in the class concluded that I was developing interest in her. The curious ones drew closer to hear how I was going to arrange my lines of songs of Solomon. The Queen bee, Daniella was restless, wondering why Lordina would stoop so low to associate herself with me. She didn’t say a word to suggest that but actions said a lot. Unless I was judging the book wrongly by its cover.
“Erm… Erm… I… Madam…. Erm… We…” I struggled finding words to put together my first sentence… (Story Continues)
