Crowd gathered as they rushed to separate Fred and Eric.
Gosh, I’ve never seen Fred so angry before. He really have Eric a thorough beating
Jeffrey, Alex and Mason restrained him from doing more harm cause Eric was already bleeding. Students gyrated around the field jeering at Eric. It’s obvious many junior student hates him.
Fred breathed heavily with pure anger.
I never expected him to be so strong. He’s strong but he hardly use his strength unlike Eric. Amidst the jeering students, I stood like a confused sheep. Not knowing what to do, who to console, and who to apologise to.
Fred looked around, searching for someone, obviously me. I tried to hide but it’s late. His eyes met mine. He glared at me with a narrowed eyes, then he started walking towards me, menacingly and angrily. Meanwhile Mason and Alex has assisted Eric to the school dispensary.
Things seems to be happening too fast. My legs wobbled and wriggled as Fred kept walking to me with an air of pure anger. I shut my eyes in anticipation for a slap but rather, he dragged me roughly, and vehemently and started pulling me out of the crowd under the curious eyes of students.
“Fred,!!!” Jeffrey yelled afar but the furious Fred ignored me and dragged me along to…The changing room.
He’s breath was heavy and his body perspired. Then without warning, he pushed me to the wall violently, I was really expecting a slap or punch. But it seems I was wrong.
He kissed me, violently, furiously, roughly and intimately. A kiss of anger. He kissed without the restraint he do used earlier, invading my mouth, I wanted to cry but the cry came as a sweet moan. I wanted to push him but I found myself grabbing him closer. My sighs and moans fueled him. He invaded his tongue in mine, seeking, searching and devouring my mouth.
“Fred!” A low voice called behind interrupting the dreadful moment of intimate passion.
Fred stopped abruptly and breathed heavily. He didn’t turn back nor bothered to know who called.
“The principal sent for you.” The voice added and he turned to see Jeffrey.
Fred inhaled deeply and turned, he walked pass Jeff and left the room.
Jeffrey stood looking at me with an expression I can’t really fathom.
“Oliver…” his voice was low and filled with feelings.
My heart pounded as he walked to me. He gave me a furtive gaze then he looked keenly at my lips shook his head.
Without saying a word, he turned suddenly and left.
I stood still, and start wondering if am not a gay. Yeah, am turning into a gay. Why didn’t I resist Fred kiss, why am I also looking at Jeffrey’s lips lustfully. Why did I always blush each time Mason looked at me passionately. Why did my stomach flutter each time Alex peck or kiss me?
ANS- Because am a gay.
Impossible…Am not a gay and would never be a gay. I’ll only have feelings for the opposite sex.
Yeah right…girls are what I thrive on.
But I’ve never had any feelings for girls the way am having for boys. Huh..that’ll pend for now. I should think of how to settle with the FAME.
I couldn’t bear to go to that room again. Maybe I should stay with Jimmy. Or I should sleep in the Library, or classroom. Or should I just go to the room and bear anything they wish to do to me.
By the time I came out, it was already dusk. The moon shone brightly and led me to the room.
I was about opening the door, when I heard an argument going inside.
“Fred what you did, was totally unfair. You beat up Eric in the midst of crowds.” Alex said ans scoffed.
“Thinking of it alone, disgust me. Fred you are so mean.” This time it was Mason.
“Just because of Oliv…” Alex was saying when Fred yelled.
“Don’t put Oliver’s name into this. You all are blaming me for beating up Eric, he deserves it totally. Oliver is my pet, none of you should dare raise your hands on him cause I won’t spare….”
Then I pushed the door opened and walked in.
They all looked at me, surprisingly Eric too was inside. Fred turned to me and ran his finger through his head. He’s been doing this sin
ce we kissed the first time.
Alex looked at me and said
“Oliver, am sorry but you won’t stay in this room anymore, you are causing a lot of chaos amongst us. It seems Fred is obsessed….” Alex haven’t finished what he’s saying when Fred jumped to him and hook his shirt.
All because of me…Oliver.
Eric just laid quiet.
“Fred…what do you wanna do…beat me?…” Alex blurted as Fred tightened his grip.
“Senior Fred…stop it.” I whimpered and it seems like my words were ice. It kindled Fred’s anger and he released his grip from Alex shirt. Fred climbed on his bed without saying any more word.
Mason and Alex glared at him.
‘am really causing trouble among them.’
I looked at Mason and Alex.
“Am sorry.” I mumbled politely and took the guts to Eric.
“Senior Eric, am really sorry for what happened.” I said, he act as if am invisible.
I looked back at Fred, he’s already sleeping.
Then quietly, I walked out of the room. To clear my mind and think straight. Many events are happening at the same time. And am at the centre of it all.
The night seems to come too fast. The school was quiet and the only thing I heard was the sounds of night crickets.
Quietly, I found my way to the school library. Maybe, I’ll spend my night there.
I pushed the door ajar and entered.
The lights were off. And everywhere was completely dark.
A peaceful place at last.
“Who are you looking for?” A voice said from the extreme part of the Library and I flinched. The voice was quite sleepy. Was someone actually sleeping here.
“Who are you?” The voice asked again and I shivered.
“Oliver!!!” The voice exclaimed and the light turned on.
Oh my God.
It’s Jeffrey, he’s on a sweatpants with no clothe, his hair was tousled and it kinda make him more handsome.
He looked at me askance.
“What are you doing here?” He asked confused with wriggled brow.
“Umh…I came to …sleep here.” I fidgeted and he widen his eyes.
And slam his forehead.
“Temptations.” He muttered to himself.
And looked closely at me, while walking towards me.
I shifted back until I my back got to the wall. My face was to him.
He leaned closer and with his hands to the wall, caging me.
“Please…don’t hurt me..” I cried.
He paused for a while.
“Have you seen me hurt a junior student, do I look like Eric to you.” He deadpan and I shook.
“Don’t rape me.” I blurted foolishly.
“Why are you always getting engaged with trouble? Where you born on a rainy
day?” He asked.
I kept mute.
Then he chuckled.
“My mom once told me that people who were birthed on a rainy day always get into trouble.” He said.
I kept quiet while my heart pounded aloud.
“I guess the FAME have told you much about me that I’m a gay, am this…Am. that. Am used to it. People do gossip me a lot but am not affected.” He said as he turned back and played with the keyholder in his hand.
“Well, they are right, am a gay. They told you to be careful of me, right? ” He asked and turned swiftly as I gave no response.
He chuckled and shook his head. “You are a stubborn boy, always listen to your superiors they knows what is best for you. They advised you to stay away from me, but you kept drawing yourself to me like a magnet, now you’ve gotten yourself into trouble by coming to me, when am enjoying my peaceful night sleep. You are a cute boy and I can’t resist people like you.” He said and caressed my cheeks.
“Right from the day I saw you..I was attracted to you. But Fred warned me to stay away and I so much respect Fred, not only because he’s the senior prefect, but because he has a nice self esteem.
I tried everything possible to avoid you, not to see you. But you are the one who is coming, do you know that I’ve been having wet dreams because of you. Right now, I came to this Library for privacy so I can picture your nice face in my dream. But you came in reality.
I love you Ollie, and i hate hurting people I love. Am sorry for what I’ll do in a minute, but I pray you ‘ll forgive me later, as for now, I can’t resist you. And not even Fred will save you.”
He said an
d moved to me. My heart leapt to my throat.
If I try to avoid a problem, another would come.
