If you missed the Episode Forty - Eight (48), read it HERE!!!
The year went by quickly. Jamb form came out again and I started attending my old jamb lecture again. I decided to fill Uniben as both my first choice University and Auchi poly as my first choice Poly. I also decided to minimise making night calls with Rita and some other friends.
At jamb lecture, I kept to myself. Not talking to anybody. I felt so out of place considering all my old friends and colleagues had earlier gained admission while I’m still here attending jamb lectures. As well as staying away from others, I made it a daily habit to always borrow the lecture’s daily newspaper at the Secretariat to read. Reading newspapers everyday seemed to have made me looked like an intelligent and refined person. Others kinda kept away from me thinking that I’m a snob or something.
One girl just wouldn’t leave me alone. Her name was Daisy, the first girl I really, trully fell in love with. Let me describe her a little. Daisy is quite tall, a bit taller than me. She is not overtly slim, however she is very curvy with a nice Buttocks to compliment her backside and a not too large but firm Bosom shaping her chest. She is olive-skinned with translucent eyes, pointed nose and dimples on the both sides of her face. When she smiles, the world do seemed to have stopped. Enough of that dovey dopey.
Back then in lecture, I didn’t even know she existed in the jamb lecture. My isolation from other student was so absolute and total. I never knew she has been checking me out all these while.
“Proffesor Sam” I heard someone say just behind me.
I ignored the person and kept on reading the newspaper with me. Moreover my name is not Professor Sam. Back them, I do wear medicated glasses which probably made me looked like a proffesor.
“Sam” the voice called out again.
I turned around my seat to locate the voice, she smiled at me displaying her open teeth.
“Where you the one calling me?” I asked.
“Yes, please lemme have the newspaper when you’re done reading” she said.
“Okay, no problem, I’m almost done”
I finished perusing the newspaper and handed it over to her. Not before telling her to return it to the Secretariat when she was done.
After lectures that day,on the main road waiting for a bus, I heard someone calling proffesor Sam again. I knew it was her and I turned around to face her. We exchanged pleasantries and I got to find out that we both stay in the same area. While we were still talking, a bus pulled in and we both got on the bus. We sat side by side and I couldn’t help but notice the fragrance emanating from her.
“What is the name of the perfume you use? I asked her.
“Eleganzar” she replied.
“Why did you ask?”
“Nothing, i like the scent” I replied.
“Oh…thanks” she said and smiled and I was so unlucky to be looking at her at that exact moment in time.
Three days later, Daisy sat close to me during government class. She didn’t copy notes while the government teacher was teaching. I noticed her hands were always raised up anytime a question was asked. She is preety smart and intelligent I surmised. She kept trying to make me talk, I spoke little as I was still trying to keep a low profile. After lectures that day, Daisy approached me and asked me to borrow her my government note. I almost didn’t want to give it to her as she had chosed not to copy note while the note was being written on the board. I gave her the note reluntantly after she had flashed a bedevilling smile at me. We went home together that day and subsequent days.
