???? MY SECRET ANGEL ????
???? Episode 2 ????
???? By Jennifer Owens ????
⏮️ Kim’s POV continues ⏭️
I stood up again to look at him but he wasn’t there but at the stairs climbing up to meet me.
He was damn angry.
“um I… I’m very sorry it was a mistake” I stuttered.
“let me help you clean it” I said and tried touching his clothe but he yanked my hands ???? off.
“don’t you dare lay your filthy hands ???? on me” he yelled and I flinched.
I watched him as he took off his clothe and threw it at me.
“give it to your boyfriend, it’s my gift to him coz I know none of your family can afford this and that’s even if you have a boyfriend coz with the way your are now, no one would take a second look at you ” he seethed and tears already started streaming down my cheeks.
He turned to go but stopped on his track and turned.
“one more thing Kim, my name is too expensive and special to be called by you so don’t even dare calling nor looking at me coz you aren’t worth it” he said and left.
“Ty…. Tyler ” I called and took two more steps but he already climbed down.
“my angel is upset with me now, he said I’m not worth calling him nor looking at him” I said and cried more.
It hurts so much that the person I’m looking up to is the one telling me all this.
I better stop this foolishness and focus more on my studies.
My dad has really tried enough and the money he used in enrolling me here is huge so I must not fail him again.
I wiped tears and went home with the bus.
I reached my house and sighted Mr king with my dad.
I quickly hid at a corner and watched Mr king go out through the gate.
He must have come for the money of the vase I broke in the morning.
“ah come out Kim ” my dad said.
I slowly came out from my hide and walked to him.
“biané appa ( I’m sorry dad)” I said and he hugged me.
“so do you like your new school” he asked and I remembered my incident with Tyler, then the old man.
“yes” I said and smiled.
He nodded and I went to my room to freshen up.
I freshened up, ate dinner with dad then went back to my room and laid on my bed.
“I’m sorry Tyler, for making you upset, I will try not to look at you again” I said and closed my eyes then drifted to dream land.
⏮️ Tyler’s POV ⏭️
I reached home, greeted my mom and went up to my room.
I took a shower ???? and laid down to think of the small concert we are having in the school the day after tomorrow.
My thoughts drifted to that clumsy girl, Kim.
I shouldn’t feel guilty for the way I spoke to her cuz that’s the only way she will learn to focus.
Not looking at me and not calling my name is the only way she won’t make a fool of herself.
She’s kinda beautiful though but clumsy.
I closed my eyes and slept off.
⏮️ Kim’s POV ⏭️
I woke up early the next day thanks to my dad who slapped me from my sleep.
“Appa! It hurts ” I said rubbing my cheek.
“go and bath, I don’t want you to run to school again ” he said and I smiled.
“don’t worry dad, I’m a strong girl, even if I run a hundred times I won’t get tired” I said and he smiled then left.
I took my bathe ????, dressed up and took a glance at Tyler’s picture that was in my room.
“ah I’ve promised myself not to look at him again” I said to myself.
I went to the sitting room and ate breakfast with dad.
He gave me some pocket money then I left to catch the bus so I won’t break any of Mr King’s materials.
I reached school and went straight to the class and of course there were murmurings everywhere as soon as I stepped my feet in the School’s compound.
I went to my seat and sat down. Tyler is yet to come.
“hey pig I mean Kim, you are needed in the principal’s office ” a girl said then glared and walked away.
I brought out my map and located the principal’s office.
I reached there, peeped in then went in fully.
I almost ran away when I saw that bald head, wrinkled face old man.
He’s the principal?
I’m in hot soup.
“good morning bald he….I mean sir ” I said and bowed down.
“bald head and wrinkled face huh ” the man smirked.
“here” a teacher that was in the office said handing me a paper.
I took it and read it.
A suspension letter for three weeks!
My dad is gonna kill me.
“ah” I winced in pain and held my chest like someone having an heart attack.
“what’s wrong” the teacher asked.
“aaaah ” I screamed louder and fell to the floor.
“what’s wrong with you” the bald head principal asked.
He was worried, exactly what I wanted.
“I’m…. Allergic to the word suspension and suspended ” I struggled to say like someone gasping for air.
“ah” I screamed again.
“what do we do now, let’s call the doctor ” the teacher suggested and the bald head principal nodded.
“no, the solution is…. is simple” I stuttered.
“then what’s it” the principal asked.
“aaah, just take the suspension letter and tear it aaah….. Then take a… A scholarship slip and sign it for me” I said, breathing heavily.
“what” the principal yelled.
“that’s the only solution, aaaah ” I screamed louder.
“I think we better do it sir, after all it’s just one” the teacher said.
“bring a scholarship slip now ” the principal said and the teacher took one from the cupboard and gave it to him.
The teacher took the suspension letter and tore it.
“here it is ” the principal said giving me the scholarship slip.
I looked at it and my name was written there, with his signature.
“stamp it” I said and he did it rapidly.
“are you okay now ” the principal asked.
“the pain is reducing but I don’t guarantee you that I won’t die in your hands” I said and his eyes widened.
“what do we do again” he asked.
“fr.. Free food for today ” I said and he nodded.
Ah such a fool, they are too gullible.
Me? Die? Even if death come, I will fight it and make sure I win.
The teacher helped me to the school’s cafeteria and told me to eat whatever I wanted.
She told the chef to give me anything I wanted.
She left and I ate and ate till I was full.
I even packaged some and put it in my backpack for dinner at home.
“I can’t wait to see Tyler at the concert tomorrow ” a girl said.
“they’ve already started selling the tickets” the other one said and they smiled.
a concert tomorrow, Tyler will be singing I guess, I can’t miss this no matter what.
But how will I afford the ticket.
I will find a way, I must not miss this concert.
