I watched hatefully as John and Princess kissed
erotically. I stood there, watching for minutes, not sure what to do, as I lost
track of time. John was starting to undo her buttons when I fully grabbed what
could happen if I didnít do anything; I was going to witness Princess having
s*x with a guy I was crushing on, again.
Agitatedly, I retreated down the passageway, swearing mutely while I walked on, even though I had no definite destination. I thought
about getting a bucket of water to wet them with, or waiting around to steal
their clothes while they did it. I thought about other diabolical plans, but as
I approached the other end of the building, I was no close to deciding what to
While I walked absentmindedly, I stumbled upon Miss
Temah, the 30 years old school librarian, renowned for being strict and
disciplined, having little regard for cordiality. She never smiled, and every
student dreaded the prospect of approaching her. But at that moment, as I saw
her, my face became lit up with a devious grin. I was indeed thrilled to see
Putting in much effort to wipe the smirk off my face,
I informed Miss Temah about what I had just seen. As I did, she froze,
appearing emotionless as she looked me up with the corner of her eyes as if
doubting my claim. Even though I was certain of what I told her, the look she
gave made me momentarily doubt my memory.
''Are you sure you saw what you claim to have seen,
young lady?'', she inquired.
''Yes maíam. I saw them kissing, and he was suckling
onÖ'' Miss Temah interrupted me with a fleet gesture before I could finish up
the sentence. I knew I was giving too much information, but I was desperate to
convince her, and apparently, I had succeeded in doing so.
While I bounced behind her, Miss Temah raced to the corner
I told her I had seen the ''mischievous students'' as she regarded them. I stood
behind one of the shelves as Miss Temah approached John and Princess. Both of
them had only taken off their shirts when they were busted. Miss Temah ordered
them to put on their shirts before ushering them to the Principal's office. All
the while, I hid myself, even though I trailed them to ensure that I didnít
miss any part of the drama.
I crouched beneath one of the windows of the
Principal's office in order to keep up with the unfolding event. I could hear
the Principal's stern voice, talking to John's parent over the phone, while I
was only able to pick up a few words from the conversation. My heart raced when
I heard the Principal say ''Expelled''.
Even though I knew that being caught making out in
school was punishable by expulsion, the possibility of it happening to John and
Princess didnít strike my mind when I tipped Miss Temah off about them. But
while being expelled from school was a dreadful thing, I strangely didnít feel
sorry them. Finally, I wouldnít have to see Princess around to remind me of her
Having gotten enough information about their fates, I
left the spot where I'd been eavesdropping. As I turned around the curb, I
sighted Sharon and Sophie exiting the e-library building, then it occurred to
me that Iíd been looking for them in the wrong library.
''Where have you been? We've been expecting you. Didn't
Promise tell you we'd be in the library?'', Sharon queried.
''Yes, she told me, and I did go to the library, but
the wrong one'', I explained.
