I and my friends went to the cafeteria to eat after morning lecture. I was telling them how I saved the girl and she didn’t even mutter a thank you.

 

 

 

I told you man, she’s weird” Zach said.

As we are talking people coming to me introducing themselves one after the other then a girl came to our seat then sat down.

well you have to just for your high school experience to be exciting” Liam said.

 

 

 

Then I noticed the girl I saved this morning coming over to our table, I look at my friends and noticed they are as surprised as I am.

She took me to one of the empty seat at the cafeteria and we sat down. She noticed the weird way I was staring at her.

 

 

 

please don’t look at me that way…..you look like you saw a ghost” she said.

 

 

 

it’s not my fault, the way you always acted and the way you stare at me…..it’s like you are possessed” I said and she smiled which is the first I will see her do that.

Actually I’m glad that you noticed…..why do you think I stare like that? ” she asked.

 

I don’t know” I said.

 

 

 

well it’s kinda because I like you and I was even surprised you haven’t ask me out yet” she said and I was shocked to hear that coming from her.

I have never been to a party before in my life other than the one I went to in village and that’s because I went there to collect food but this one is different.

 

 

 

An hour later I went to my room to and put on a very nice cloth then dress my hair very well.

ookay, hope it’s nothing serious” I said.

 

 

 

first before we begin, I would want you to forgive us” the granny said and I was confused.

 

forgive?…..i don’t understand” I said.

there’s nothing you could possibly do that haven’t happened to me before, infact I’m very sure you can’t do anything to harm me cause you are good people” I said.

 

 

 

fine” she said then signaled to Mr Edward and I wondered what’s actually going on as I see that he seems uneasy.

” Joseph, I know…….how hard this……. must be for you…….to believe but I just want………you to know that it’s the truth” he said and I still don’t get he’s still worried.

 

 

 

” sir, you’re creeping me out” I said wondering what could possibly make this man to be this disturbed.
