THE IRRESISTIBLE URGE
(School in crisis)
STILL ON BREAK PERIOD AT ASSS.
Ellen left Simeon. As she hurried upstairs, so as Cent hurried downstairs. Both passed at the staircase without any casualty or recognition. She entered her classroom just to see Nath sitting quietly on his seat, so she stood before his locker and said, “I’m back”
“Alright” Nath adjusted his eyeglasses and began to bring out a book.
“I thought you wanted to see me” Ellen wanted his attention.
“Me?” Nath looked at her.
“Yes, at the staircase when you saw me with Simeon”
“I only wanted to be with you”
“Okay” both became quiet while Nath concentrated on his bag. At that moment, Peace arrived standing beside Ellen.
“Hey, you guys are not talking just staring, what?” she said.
“We’ve finished talking” Nath replied without looking up then Ellen became upset. She needed more of his attention but didn’t show it.
“Alright” Peace said and looked at Ellen. “Have you seen Olivia?” she asked.
“No” Ellen looked around the classroom. “Even Juliet, I’ve not seen them” she answered.
“Okay” Peace left to her seat but Kennedy’s words never departed from her mind.
After the quietness lingered between Ellen and Nath, she said harshly without smiling, “Are you upset?!”
“Why should i be?” Nath looked at her.
“You behave as if you are. Simeon just…”
“Ellen!” Nath interrupted staring into her eyes. “I’m not upset, okay?” he said.
Ellen also stared into his eyes still without a trace of smile on her face then walked out instantly.
Cent met Simeon going inside one of the JSS classrooms then tapped him on the shoulder then he turned.
“I told you but you wouldn’t listen” Cent began.
“The ASSS Boy” Cent interrupted swiftly.
“What are you talking about?” Simeon asked.
“Ellen shunned you, didn’t she?”
“How do you know?”
“Forget it, Head-boy. I will make her fall for you if only you work with me”
Simeon smiled. “How?” he asked.
“Are you ready to work with me?”
“What type of work?”
Cent smiled too, rubbed his jaw gently as if there was a long beard on it and walked away from the door which of course Simeon followed him. “I can’t demand money from you coz i know my parents are richer than yours” he said.
“Don’t insult my parents! Have you gone nut!” Simeon provoked.
“Alright, my bad” Cent apologised then brought down his voice. “Just help me teach Nath a disgraceful lesson then Ellen will be yours”
“What do you mean?”
“You know what i mean”
“I can’t do that”
“Think about it. Remember, that same Nath is the reason why Ellen can’t succumb to your proposal” Cent concluded and bounced out.
“Star the ASSS Boy!” a junior student hailed him from a distant.
“Yoh mehn, correct ASSS Boy” he replied. Immediately, the bell rang for break over.

Students began to go into their classrooms. Sooner did Kennedy walked in with other group of students then his eyes caught with Peace’s. He averted them to Nath who he shook hands smiling.
“Hope all is fine, bro” Nath said.
“Yes, guy” Kennedy replied then went to his seat.
Among the group of student that went inside the classroom, Olivia and Juliet were among but Ellen called Juliet while Olivia walked to Peace.
“Where have you been?” Ellen asked her.
“Outside” Juliet replied.
“Yes, any problem?”
“No” Ellen’s face changed again.
“You don’t look bright. What’s…”
“Nothing” Ellen interrupted then Juliet glanced at Nath knowing very well he’s the only one who can put her in that mood. So she quietly walked to her seat.
On the other hand, Peace asked Olivia where she went to and she also answered. “Outside”
At the resident of Mr Anthony, Kennedy’s father, he had a free time with his wife. Both were in the sittingroom seated on one couch and watching news. The wife crossed her legs wearing a gown which length touched her ankle. Red cortex could be seen on her fingernails and toe-nails. She has black fixed hair, narrow face and slim body.
“I want to change our son to a boarding school” the husband broke the silence.
“Why?” the wife looked at him.
“To be more studious”
“I don’t like the idea” the wife objected. “Especially sending him to only boys’ boarding school” she added.
Mr Anthony looked at her. “Why?”
“To me, only gender school is the origin of gay and lesbian relationship” the wife replied, so the husband became surprise. “Does such thing happen among teenagers?” he asked.
“Very well. I am a doctor, i have heard several stories from different patients like lesbians and gays who needed counseling. According to their stories, it all started from dorms-only gender boarding school”
“But students in boarding school are brilliantly brought ups”
“Yes, I’m not disputing that but you can’t cheat nature. So leave my son where he is” the wife concluded.
“If you say so” the husband increased the volume of the television..
