The cold ice to her face caused her to jerk up and exclaim ..,
“Owww!!” She hits his hands away,
“Ssshh sit still and relax. It’s to bring down the swelling. And the redness. ” he cautioned . He marveled at the sensitivity of her skin. And at the softness. Grace stilled. But her mouth didnt .
“Its your fault am nursing a headache and a slap all within five minutes ” she thinned her lips, shutting her eyes as water dripped from the ice, crawling down her face
“Am sorry. ” was all that he could say.
He hasn’t for the life of him ever wanted to hit a girl so bad. How dare Victoria.
“Its fine. Am good I can take it from here. I don’t want your girlfriend coming back to me a second time to hit me. I don’t want any trouble ” she removed his hand from her face.
He stiffened . “Victoria isn’t my girlfriend. And am really sorry. And it won’t happen again. I promise ” He reassured her .
Grace was silent. Then she nodded, but she knew without saying it that Anthony was trouble and what Rose said was true….”Victoria was the devil” she had to make sure she stays clear of both of them. She came here to study not to be a punching bag for a girl who is hung over a boy who is apparently uninterested in her. But that wasn’t her business. .
“Whatever!!” She finally said.
Anthony felt guilty . He didnt know what else to say. He wanted to make her feel better atleast so he said the first thing that came to his mind.
“Let me make it up to you atleast. I feel bad. ” He pleaded. He should just get up now and leave. But he didn’t want their first meeting to end on a bad memory. She intrigued him.
Grace shook her head..”Hell No!!”
He must be mad to think she would hang around with him after this.. she eyed him like he was a strange creature. Another slap isn’t what she desired in the near future. Was everyone mad in Uniport? ? She wondered .
“Hey!! Grace relax. I just want to buy you a drink!”
“I don’t drink” she cuts in
“Er well. Okay. How about water ?”
What the hell was that Anthony ?? He thought to himself, his subconscious self was shaking his head in embarrassment ..He tried again. ..
“Or..or we could just have suya or something. Please ….???” He had to try. There was something about her. They couldn’t stop talking just because a random girl he detests was jealous. He needs to take care of Victoria and her jealous feats. She needed to stay away from him, and Grace. Especially Grace.
Grace thought about it for a second.
First off, she didn’t know the guy or even like him nor intend dating him. Yet she got a slap. Well since she has already being punished for what she didn’t do or know or feel. She might as well do the crime …well atleast take him up on that water-drink offer. Atleast he seemed to feel bad enough for the incident. She sighed.
“Fine. But can I go now? ? Rose is spitting fire and it looks as though your friend is having a hard time calming her down ” Grace looked over Anthony’s shoulders .
Rose was shouting at the top of her voice, pacing up and down and putting up her fists and shaking it in the air.
Anthony turned halfway..and smiled. “Yes you should go tell your friend you are fine and I will go erm…save James from bearing the burnt of Rose ‘ s anger” he gets up, giving her his hands to pull her up from the bench they were sitting on.
“And I will see you tomorrow evening for that water drink” he stated. Grace didnt answer but nodded. She wasnt giving him a number and glad he didn’t ask. Probably it was for the best. She walked towards the duo and Anthony behind her, lost in thoughts.
The school would be buzzing with the incident . He didnt like it. He didnt like it at all.
***a few buildings away****
“So would you do it for me ??” Victoria wispered into his ears as she leaned into him. Mr Bamidele was groaning from the warm sensation over his hardness.
He liked her hands, but her mouth was way better..and her other mouth was heaven.
“Yes my sweet. Anything. Just stop torturing me ..come here. ..let me taste you” he reached for her but she slapped his hand away, staying him down with her hand and worked her hands around him. She watched him groan some more.
Victoria wasn’t in the mood for sex. She was on another mission and he was just part of plan she was brewing for Grace.
“Yes yes I will. And my friends, the other lecturers would do so if I give them a good lie. .don’t worry. Now come here vicky. ” he reached for her again, he couldn’t take it any more.
She sidestepped him, still fully dressed.
“Your appetite would have to wait Mr Bamidele. Once you have shown me you can be trusted with what I need. You would have a big party with me as icing on the cake. Okay??” She removes her hands after a quick rub and walks to the door, he gasped
“I suggest you get to it if you don’t want to be carrying a boner everyday to class. ” She exits his office leaving him to yearn after her.
Mr Bamidele stared down at his erected self. And sighed.
He would be sleeping with a throbbing pain tonight. His wife wouldn’t be able to quench this hunger. She was too busy playing secretary to the Dean. And she had lost her spark. Victoria was everything. He sighed. Zipping up his trousers. He picked up his test scripts and searched for her name , when he found whose he was looking for he pulled it out, squeezed it and threw it into the dustbin , then picks up his phone to make a call.
“Things we do for a great lay” he muttered to himself while he waited for the line to be picked on the other end.
“Hello Dr ifeanyi, I have a problem with a particular student..Grace micheals………..
*********** An hour later*****
“What do you want to do to her Victoria ?” bunmi asked as she handed her a paper with something scribbled on it.
“Just to put the fear of God in her. Nothing more ” Victoria smiled wickedly.
“But isn’t this a tad too much?? You have always just attacked the others or embarrassed them . But this time you are going the extra mile, tampering with her test scripts…” Sandra stated, eyeing Victoria . Wondering what’s going On through her mind.
“Well for starters, Anthony had never actually cared whose feelings I hurt. He doesn’t say or do anything . But he stopped me from hitting her again, he hurt me when he held my hand, and he didn’t even care how I felt. Anthony Obviously likes her and that’s a problem ”
She walked to her bed and sits on it..And spoke in the third person.
“Victoria hates to be bested . Victoria likes her toys till she is tired of them. Victoria likes Anthony and he is her most prized possession and not even a skalawag or a skank or that pretentious Grace can take him away from me. I intend to put her in her place. And that’s all I intend to… a lil fire doesn’t kill any body ” She looks up staring from bunmi to Sandra. .
“Now…let’s go pay her a little visit. Would you be a dear and take along the present I bought for her. It would be wrong not to get a present for your host even though they have no idea you are Coming.”
She gets up facing the mirror. Sandra exchanges looks with bunmi. They knew Victoria was scary sometimes but she was queen, whatever she says they do. They knew being on her side was better than being on the other side.
“Poor Grace ” Sandra muttered under her breath. And shrugged. But she really didn’t care . She had always secretly crushed on Anthony but the fear of Victoria kept her feelings at bay. She couldn’t dare to let Victoria suspect her feelings. But for Grace, One less girl to worry about. One girl out of the equation. She really didn’t have to care. She really didn’t .
She carefully grabbed the bag by the edge of the bed, gently holding it with disgust on her face and slinged it over her shoulders …
On second ‘s thought she held it in her hands, and shook herself. The thought of something crawling inside her body made her cringe.
“Ready when you are Victoria” Sandra walked to the door and waited .
“Let’s go!!” Victoria said , heading towards her and bunmi following behind.
“What would be would be.” Bumni mutters under her breath. only Sandra heard her as they stood shoulder to shoulder.And exclaimed a deep silent sigh.
“And it begins” Sandra replied to bunmi. who just nodded .
“Come along girls. We can’t be late now can we”?
.. She danced out of her room.
