aTHE IRRESISTIBLE URGE
(School in crisis)
The force in which Cent pushed Nath made him hit a locker forcefully nearly to fall but he had enough stamina to withstand it. “What’s wrong with you mehn?!” he shouted. With the said force he pushed Cent back and before Ellen could stand up from her seat to stop further fight, Peace had already rushed there and held Nath by the hand before Kennedy arrived too. So she gently went back to her seat. Other students also held Cent back.
“Is like you don’t know who i am!” Cent began pointing his fingers at Nath. “I am Star boy mehn!” he added.
“You’re a big fool!” Nath retaliated pointing his fingers at him too.
“Please, calm down” Peace pleaded rubbing his hand gently.
“Is okay bro, allow him” Kennedy added holding the other hand. Just then Mrs Akin, the Biology teacher entered and all swiftly went back to their seats except Nath and Cent who slowly walked in.
“What just happened here?” Mrs Akin asked in a high pitch voice. She has a small body stature and always in a high-heel shoes to the extent students nicknamed her Mrs koi koi due to the sound of her shoes on the floor. She had a round medicated eyeglasses on her eyes too. After waiting for so long without getting a reply from the students, she gently opened her lesson note and said, “What are the names of sexual hormones in males and females reproductive system respectively?”
All the class became quiet. Nath’s mind wasn’t there as he boiled in anger but Ellen kept glancing at him because he was sitting two lockers away after hers.
“None of you wants to answer!” Mrs Akin provoked. “I will walk out of this class if the silence lingers” she added looking at the silence faces. If only she knew what happened before she came in, she wouldn’t have threw a question to them. “Nath stand up. Tell us the names of the hormones” she said walking to the back of the class.
Nath stood without smiling. Of course he knew the answer but anger couldn’t let him speak. Ellen and others knew that.
“Let me help him, ma” Peace and Ellen said at the same time raising up their hands.
“Alright, Ellen help him out” Mrs Akin permitted then Ellen stood up.
“The names of the hormones are testosterone and progesterone respectively” she answered then glanced at Nath again who didn’t care. While Peace wished to had been the one to answer the question.
“Good!” Mrs Akin exclaimed walking back to the front of the class. “It seems like today is a bad day for Nath” she added with a smile then the lecture continued.
They were few people in the classroom including Nath and Ellen who had not exchange words that day even greetings. Suddenly, Simeon entered with a smile on his face. He waved at Nath who also waved at him then went to Ellen’s locker and sat opposite her.
“Good day Simeon” Ellen greeted placing her hand on the locker.
“Hi, girl” Simeon replied then brought his hand closer to Ellen’s face who withdrew her head.
“Just want to remove a particle from your beautiful face”
“No, don’t worry”
“I disagree” Simeon finally got hold of the particle and showed it to her.
“Wow, thanks anyways” Ellen smiled but suddenly frown and glanced at Nath who stood up immediately and walked toward the door. She saw Peace cornered him at the door then she also became jealous.
“Hey” Simeon brought back her attention. “We surprised students at the assembly ground today. It was fun and romantic, wasn’t it?” he smiled.
“What do you mean?” Ellen glared at him. “Better get that off your head coz is no big deal” she added then looked at Peace again who kept smiling in Nath’s presence.
“Don’t be so rude. I deserve an appreciation for saving you”
“Alright, thank u my hero”
“Now you’re talking” Simeon felt happy. “I’ll see u later” he stood up.
“I never knew you have the strength to fight” Peace wanted to make Nath happy holding his shirt. “But seriously, it doesn’t fit you” she added. Just then, Simeon passed and Nath looked into the classroom. His eyes caught with Ellen’s but none averted his or her eyes until Peace brought back Nath’s attention.
“Sorry, i need to go” Nath walked out. Immediately, Kennedy arrived but Peace didn’t give him attention.
The day being a bad day for Nath, immediately the bell rang he picked up his bag and rushed out but the crowd trooping down the staircase changed his mind, so he stood aside to wait for them to pass.
However, Ellen wasn’t in the class when the bell rang, so she was downstairs waiting for the crowd to pass before going up to pick her bag. After the crowd pushed away she hurried up while Nath hurried down. Both met at the staircase then slowed down.
“Hi, Nath” Ellen stopped hoping to get his attention like before.
“Hi, Ellen” Nath replied without looking at her then passed in a hurry. So she became disappointed and slowly took several stairs up but stopped. She looked back still hoping to see him but never did.
