I woke up, Tomi was already awake. She cried to sleep while I tried to comfort her all through the night. Her mood had changed as she had a huge smile on her face now. I started smiling too and I said "Good morning sunshine" She said good morning too. Immediately after that, her phone started ringing. She picked it and put it on loud speaker. It was her dad, he said he was going to come back today, way earlier than he was supposed to. Her mood instantly changed. She looked very disappointed. I tried to cheer her up by saying that I'd still be able to come back today to tutor her.
She insisted on making breakfast for me before I left. She made toast and she made sure I ate it there. I put my clothes inside my bag and I had breakfast. Then around 11, I decided it was time for me to leave.
She said she was going to escort me. She walked with me till my house was only a street away. Then I said "See you in four hours"
"Bye, I'll miss you"
"I'll miss you too"
We hugged and we last time before we finally parted ways. After she left, I ran into a short, fair boy who looked like he had been following us for a while. I wanted to just ignore him and keep walking till He said " You're the new guy, right?"
He stretched his hand forward and said "Nice to meet you, I'm the real guy" I finally realized who he was, Her ex. I refused to accept his hand shake. He said "Oh, she didn't tell you about me. Look, we've known each other for five years now. I would be happy if you just stopped seeing her. Like.. Just stopped thinking about her. If you don't, you're both going to regret it. Again, nice to meet you" Then he started walking. I called him back and I warned him, I told him that I wasn't going to stay away from Tomi and that if I ever saw him around her of if he ever tried anything, He was going to regret it too. On my way home, I couldn't stop thinking about what he said.
When I got home I took a quick shower then I took a nap. When I woke up, it was already afternoon. I didn't have lunch because Tomi made me promise that I wouldn't, because she was going to make something special. I started listening to music while I waited for her call. When she finally called, it was already 30 minutes past three. I went to her place as fast as I could.
When I got there, I knocked. The door opened and she stood there. Then she shouted "Jaiye!" before she gave me a tight hug. She said her father had gone back and she hugged me again. We went inside and she told me to close my eyes. Then she held my hand and she took me to the dining. She had already cooked, fried rice, turkey and plantain. I was really surprised. I was wondering how she found out that fried rice was my favorite meal. I asked her and she jokingly said "I know everything"
We ate and after eating, I helped her tidy up the kitchen, then we went to her room.
I tutored her for a while and we joked around a little, she hid my phone and we were running around. I was looking for it and she was trying to make sure I didn't find it. We stopped when we heard the door open. When I looked up, I saw the last person I wanted to meet me in her room. My principal, Her father, Mr adegbite.
