????THE POOR GIRL ????
.Mr Patrick got to the hospital to see several machines connected to Mrs Armstrong body which was beeping and a metre hanging on the wall showing some reading he didn’t understand.
Mr Patrick was stunned to see the woman badly damaged, he shook his head negatively just then the doctor emerged from the door.
“Good afternoon doctor “Mr Patrick greeted.
“Good afternoon, welcome sir. please are you related to this woman because since she was brought here no one shows up to know her except this girl here standing and it’s a pity we have not taken proper care of her as we should do, it’s only because of this girl here that we agreed to help her because of her story “Dr Ekan said.
The word hit Me Patrick in the heart as he heard the story that the woman was not properly taken care of and he knew that it was all his fault, if not so she would not be there suffering.
Fresh tears began flowing from Melody eyes, she just stood there shedding tears not knowing why the man asked her to bring her here.
“Starr proper work on her immediately and make sure she’s fine and okay for her daughter “Mr Patrick said and the word cut the tears back into melody’s eyes, she wondered who the good Samaritan was the came from nowhere and decided to help her and her family without any reason.
Melody was so happy that she couldn’t even control it than to kneel down and thank Me Patrick not knowing that he was the one that got her mom in the situation.
“Thank you sir,,,, she greeted with a shaking voice
“Stand up dear, all will be fine soon “he said and helped her up on her feet.
“Follow me to the shopping mall because she will need some stuffs to keep her strong and healthy “he said to melody who only nod her head and followed him out of hospital.
It’s three good days now that melody didn’t attend school and she has missed so many lessons but luckily for her that she’s brilliant and she always read all her notes anytime she’s chanced.
Dave sat down on his desk wondering why the new girl is not in school for two days now and it’s obvious that he has been secretly crushing on her which no one noticed.
Dave is as handsome as Henry but the difference between them was that he has a pair of glasses on his eyes which was given to him by the doctor to enable him see clearly, and he is fai r in complexion.
“Mehn, the girl is really hot and I like her “Dave said to Mike his friend on their way to the cafeteria.
“Don’t even go there man, can’t you see that she does not have time for boys and moreover she’s so damn poor”Mike mocked
“It’s true bro, is like she’s poor oo”
“Before nko? you better get rid of that thing you call feelings for that idiot, you know we don’t mingle with the poor, she’s just lucky to attend our school “Mike blurted out.
“You are right man, I better stay away from her before students start calling me after that poor girl ooo and if my dad got to hear about this that means I’m dead” he said as they proceed to their classroom.
Mrs Hannah was still so worried that her new brilliant girl is still absent from school but she didn’t know her whereabouts and how to find her which got her more confused and worried.
Amanda couldn’t help than to gossip day after day about melody with her crew.
“Where’s this new bitch? why is she not in school? Praise said aloud while enjoying themselves in the cafeteria.
“Who knows whether that idiot is a prostitute and whether she’s pregnant which stopped her from coming to school ” Joy said and all of them end of laughing
“You are right ooo, maybe she’s pregnant ooo”Amanda said out and just then Henry passed them heading inside which got them startled and after a while he came out again.
“I have a perfect plan ladies to make Henry hate melody for the rest of his life and come back begging for me to be his girlfriend “Amanda said.
“How is that possible because we all know who Henry is “praise said and it was concured by others
“Just watch me “she said said and stood up walking to Henry as they all wait to hear her feed back.
Henry was still walking when he heard footsteps following him,he looked back only to discover that Amanda was shouting his name for him to stop and he frown wondering what it was and stopped.
“Didn’t you want to wait for me? Amanda asked immediately she got to Henry
“Sorry I didn’t hear you early enough ”
“Okay dear, how are you doing today “she asked smiling
“Is that all you wanted to say? anywhere am fine as you can see”he said and turned to leave but was interrupted by Amanda speech
“Melody sent me a message to you “She said looking else where and standing akimbo. hearing the name melody Henry stopped and looked back at her and she smiled inwardly knowing that her plan will work out.
“Melody? you mean the new melody? he asked and she nodded her head.
“Melody is pregnant, and the news is everywhere. she saw me on my way back from school yesterday and check asked me to plead with you that it’s not her fault to get pregnant that she has been doing prostitution just to survive ” She said and just then Henry expression changed immediately hearing that and he was out of words as he left the place instantly without saying anything.
“Yes it work as well planned ” Amanda exclaimed and walked to their girls who were eager to hear how it went.
Henry got to the class and he couldn’t even eat the lunch he purchased from the cafeteria without of the news he just got from Amanda.
he wondered whether it’s true, or whether she lied to him.
He remember that Amanda always hated melody for no reason which makes a little perplex whether Amanda is trying to deceive him or whether it’s true.
“It might be true ooo because I can’t see a reason a new girl after her two days in school is suddenly absent from school for three days ” he said to himself and then decided to forget the matter and see the outcome of it.
Melody was so excited that finally God has answered her prayers by sending a good Samaritan to help her mother.
