Chapter Thirty Three

 

 

 

 

 

 

IT’S morning, Sharuna yawned as she got up from bed, to prepare for another day

 

 

She dragged herself into the shower and had a light bath, then she got dressed

 

 

Picked up her bag and walked to the dining for breakfast

 

 

Dr Sujit wasn’t there, she shrugged and had breakfast alone

 

Minutes later, she was ready and then took the stairs to the parking lot

 

 

She still wondered where her dad might be

 

 

As she got to the parking lot, he was there

 

 

She saw him standing by the green Sienna.

 

 

“Hey Daddy, good morning”, she greeted smiling

 

 

“Morning, I’ve been waiting here for you”, he said looking her over

 

 

“Me? Besides,I didn’t see you for breakfast”

 

 

He nodded

 

“Yeah, I was up early”

 

 

“Okay, but dad…..”, she paused

 

 

He turned to look at her

 

“Yeah? Go on”, he nudged her

 

 

She took a deep breath and exhaled

 

 

“Dad, didn’t you think it’s time I learn to drive? I mean, it gonna reduce stresses for you. You coming to pick me up and all that”, she paused in order for what she had said to sink in

 

 

“Besides”, she continued, “they’re a lot of cars available”

 

 

He thought about it for a while

 

“Well, it’s a good idea. Don’t worry about that, I will fix it”

 

 

She smiled

 

“Thanks Dad”

 

 

“Welcome. Now get into the car let’s leave here”

 

 

She happily entered and they zoomed off.

As soon as Dr Sujit dropped her and drove off, she walked into her department

 

 

She got to her class, thank God, everywhere wasn’t so filled with the students yet

 

 

The few who had arrived, were either busy with their phones, or trying some sculpturing practicals

 

 

She got to her desk and sat

 

 

It was one desk, one student for convenience, and each desk was separated far from the next, as the class was wide enough

 

 

As she flopped down on the chair, she laid her head on the desk

 

 

***********************

 

 

Priceley had just driven his father to the institution; his place of work

 

 

After making sure that his father was now sitted in his office, he proceeded to Sharuna’s department

 

 

It wasn’t yet time for classes to commence

 

 

He went in and saw Sharuna with her head down on her desk

 

 

He walked up to her, smiling

 

 

“Hey”, he tapped her desk and she raised her head up

 

 

“Good morning”, he was the first to greet

 

 

She looked at him, he was sheepishly smiling and was holding a fancy handpack.

 

 

“Hi”, she replied shortly

 

 

Priceley smiled, at least she replied his greetings

 

 

“How was your night princess?”, he asked

 

 

She scoffed

 

 

“Fine and yours?”

 

 

Now, he was stunned

 

Was she really asking after his night

 

 

All he felt at that moment was nothing but happiness

 

 

“My night was awesome, with you in my heart though”

 

 

She pretended like she hadn’t heard the last sentence

 

 

“I got you something”, he raised the handpack and dropped it on the desk “Here”, he said smiling

 

 

She looked at him, and then the handpack

 

 

“Thanks”, she managed a smile

 

 

“My pleasure. I will be leaving you now, before your teacher makes me one of you today”

 

 

They laughed

 

 

Hmm

 

She really laughed, thanks goodness

 

 

“You should please. Thanks again”

 

 

“Welcome. Have a great day”

 

 

“You too”, and he walked out

 

 

She looked at him as he left, and she shrugged

 

 

Then she took away the handpack from the desk and placed it on her laps, and she peeped in

 

 

Jeeze!

 

 

Flowers.

 

Yeah, it was red roses

 

 

Hmm

 

She inhaled the fragrance

 

Nice

 

 

Then she picked up the other gift, it was enclosed in a packet

 

 

She opened the packet, a gold chain was looking at her

 

 

What!

 

 

The gold chain was sparkling diamonds and oh!

 

It made her remember Kesmanee

 

 

A gold chain was the first gift he had gotten for her

 

But it was far more precious that the one she was looking at now

 

 

Because it had come from a far more precious person

 

 

It brought memories of Kes, and they all came, flooding back in full force

 

 

Those memories always brings tears to her eyes, and instantly, she started crying

 

 

She kept the gift on the floor beside her, placed her head on the desk, and began sobbing silently and softly

 

 

She had been crying for about five minutes, when a teacher strode in

 

 

Everyone adjusted, going back to their desks in preparation for the teaching

 

 

But Sharuna stayed still

 

 

Then the teacher noticed

 

 

“Sharuna?”, she called

 

 

Sharuna sniffed and raised her head up, cleaning her eyes with her face napkin

 

 

“What’s wrong with you?”, the teacher walked up to her

 

 

She shook her head

 

“Nothing….. just that, something entered my eyes. I’m fine, thanks”

 

 

“If you say so”, the teacher shrugged and walked back to the front of the

 

class as the teaching commenced

They had closed for the day as usual, she hurriedly packed up and ready to run down to the provision store where she normally waits, before Priceley shows up

 

 

She had strapped her bag to her back and was about leaving when she realized she hadn’t taken the handpack along

 

 

She sighed and turned to look at it on the floor

 

 

It was just a gift anyway, it meant nothing else

 

She took it and left the class in a rush

 

 

Seven steps down the stairs, she saw him coming up

 

 

Shit!

 

She cussed, hitting her forehead with her hand

 

 

What does he wants now?

 

She hopes he would just walk by, without talking to her even

 

 

“Hey, you are already leaving?”, he asked as he saw her

 

 

She didn’t say anything

 

 

“Trying to escape again?”, he smiled

 

 

“Pardon? Escape who? Am I a thief?”

 

 

He laughed

 

 

“You know what I mean. Come on, let’s go downstairs”, he nudged her

 

 

“Excuse me? I wasn’t waiting for you to come before I go downstairs, you can go”, she said, not making any attempt to move from where she stood

 

 

He laughed

 

“If you don’t say anything, I wonder who else would say something”

 

 

She ignored him, still standing

 

 

“You seem difficult, but not for me”, before she knew it, he had swept her off her feet and taking the stairs

 

 

“Hey! What the hell you think you are doing? Drop me”, she yelled

 

 

“Are you ready to come with me with your legs? Or I won’t drop you down”, he said looking at her

 

 

She kept mute

 

 

Okay

 

He continued walking, still carrying her

 

 

“You deaf?”, she shouted

 

 

“I asked you a question”, he pressed on

 

 

“Okay, I will”, she gave up, “now, drop me down, will you?”, she yelled

 

 

He looked into her face, still holding onto her

 

 

Then he brought his head down, his lips close to hers and was about brushing it on hers, when she pushed his head away

 

 

“You crazy or something?”, she tried freeing herself from him, but couldn’t

 

 

Then he dropped her down

 

 

“Um…..I’m sorry for that”, he said to her, but it was useless, she had already

 

walked away

 

 

He followed her

 

 

“I said I’m sorry”, he repeated when he got to her

 

 

She ignored him, now walking towards the road

 

 

“Where are you going?”, he was forced to ask

 

 

“Not your business”, she snapped

 

 

“I’m asking you a question Sharuna”, now there was authority in his voice

 

 

She noticed it and turned back to him

 

 

“I’m going to wait for my dad….”

 

 

“At where?”, he interrupted

 

 

“At the provision store over the road, I hope you are satisfied now?”, she turned and continued walking

 

 

“Come with me, I will take you home”, he said

 

 

Sharuna turned to look at him

 

Was he crazy??

 

 

She ignored him and continued walking

 

 

“Your dad isn’t coming for you”, he said, making her stop in her tracks

 

 

“What do you mean?”, she asked

 

 

“Well, he asked me to take you home”

 

 

She wasn’t satisfied

 

 

“My dad cannot ask you to take me home. I know him too well, what do you mean?”, she demanded furiously

 

 

His face fell

 

“Well, I talked to him, and he agreed”

 

 

For a split second, she stood in anger looking all daggers at him

 

 

She felt like getting hold of his neck and strangling him

 

 

And to make it worst, she had no t-fare on her

 

 

For her dad, he has done well

 

She was gonna confront him once he gets home

 

 

“You going?”, Priceley asked, bringing her back from thinking

 

 

She sighed and nodded

 

“Yes”

 

 

“Wow!”, he exclaimed and they walked to his car.
