“Guys, it’s break time, where should we go?” Lydia asked.
“Let us go to the school restaurant,” Kitty said.
“Restaurant? I’m not feeling like going there now,” Mary said while sitting down. Her two friends were also sitting beside her.
“Mary, don’t tell me you are still in a bad mood, cheer up, I understand how you felt because of Owen’s reaction to you when you were coming to school. But you can’t keep thinking about it forever, you have to cheer up,” Kitty said.
“What I think is that Owen may be trying to be sure if you truly love him or not,” Lydia said and winked.
“Really!” Mary exclaimed suddenly.
“Yeah,” Lydia responded and smiled.
“You mean I shouldn’t relent, he is trying to see if I truly love him?” Mary said and faced Lydia.
Lydia nodded and she bit her lips and smiled.
“Nevertheless, I ain’t feeling like going to the restaurant, how about going to the game room to have some fun?” Mary suggested and looked at her two friends, from one to the other.
They both arched their brows. “We went to the game room yesterday by break, why must we go there again today?” Kitty said.
“When there are many places that we could go,” Lydia added.
“Don’t you get bored of games?” Kitty asked.
“Okay, I get, where should we go then?” Mary asked and raised her left fingers in the air.
They were all silent for a while.
“Let us go to the rest room,” Kitty suggested.
“Rest room?” Lydia and Mary said at the same time while looking at Kitty’s face.
Mary looked at Lydia’s face to decipher what she was thinking.
Lydia nodded. “Not bad,” Lydia said.
Mary faced front and tried to think about it, but her thoughts were absolutely filled with Owen.
“Alright, let us go to the rest room,” Mary said.
The three girls stood up and walked majestically towards the rest room. The rest room was upstairs while their classroom was downstairs.
Mary and her friend walked from their class to where the staircase was, they climbed the first staircase and they saw Jude and his gang coming down.
Jude was stepping down from the second stairs, he was coming from the computer room, the computer room was not far from the rest room.
“Hey! Mary, how how are you?” he asked and looked at Mary who was frustrated from the inside immediately she saw Jude.
She knew that Jude would not allow her to leave so easily and she was willing to play with her friends during this break time.
“Where are you going?” Jude asked without waiting for Mary to answer the first question. He squirmed as he expected Mary’s response.
“Mary, we will be in the third rest room,” Lydia said.
“Alright,” Mary answered.
She watched her two friends leave her in the middle of the staircase with Jude.
“Jude, I’m fine. As you can see, I’m going to the rest room to catch some fun with my friends, you did not need to stop me,” Mary said.
“Oh no! Why would I? I didn’t stop you, but you know I always feel like seeing you, always feel like staying around you, I always feel like…” Jude said and paused suddenly in shock at the shout he heard behind him.
“Mary! Mary!” Lydia called loudly.
Kitty yelled, “Mary!”
Mary’s heartbeat increased, shock overwhelmed her, she stood still and her mouth dropped open. Lydia signaled with her fingers for her to come quickly. Mary quickly left Jude and ran to meet her friends.
“What?” she asked, shaking all over.
“Owen! It’s Owen,” Lydia said.
“What is wrong with him?” Mary asked, her legs were already shaking, her mind was praying in an instant that nothing would happen to Owen.
Jude followed Mary. Jude told Bigger and Thomas who were following him everywhere to leave for their class while he would go and help Mary.
Lydia swallowed hard and coughed.
“Kitty, what’s wrong?” Mary asked.
“Kiss,” Kitty replied shaking.
“What? Kiss, kiss, what?” Mary said in confusion.
“Follow me,” Lydia said and they all followed Lydia.
Lydia peeped through the third room, brought her head back to her friends who were beside the third rest room, wondering what was happening.
“Mary, there is a girl with Owen, and their faces are not far from each other. I do not know if they are kissing or not,” Lydia said and rested on the wall, hoping that Owen had not kissed that girl.
“Kiss? Owen must not try that,” Mary said and pulled Lydia away from where she stood. She replaced her and peeped through the rest room’s keyhole.
She watched them very well and she saw Owen hesitating to kiss the girl, but the girl seemed to be urging him and forcing him.
Mary understood that Owen must not just kiss any lady, her father had told her about Owen’s deliverance, that Owen can only speak if he met the right lady. “Nobody knows who the right lady is, only Zeus can reveal who the right lady is.” She remembered what her father said.
She wanted to help Owen but she was confused. The new girl grabbed Owen’s face and moved his lip closer and closer, just a moment for her lips to touch Owen’s lips and Mary shouted.
“Stop!” Mary said and barged into the rest room.
Owen looked up. Owen was struggling from the greatest shock of his life, he knows that if he kissed the lady and the lady happened not to be the right lady, he would never be able to speak again for the rest of his life.
The girl who was not expecting anyone to come in suddenly stood up and dropped her hands from Owen’s cheeks.
Her heartbeat increased as she saw Mary enter.
“Who are you and why would you barge in like that?” the new girl asked.
Mary shook in fear at her confident voice. Mary did not know why she came in abruptly, after all, she was not in any relationship with Owen. What right did she have to tell the new girl to stop the kiss with Owen?
“I’m sorry,” Mary muttered.
Jude was peeping at what was happening from outside the rest room. He had vowed that if the girl or Owen himself tried to bully Mary, he would have no choice but to come in and defend Mary.
Owen sat still and his mouth was wide open.
“Well, I see you are the lady staying in his house, so? Can’t he be free again? You are not his girlfriend, so why stalking him?” the girl said looked at Owen who was sitting quietly.
Owen wanted to speak to Mary, but he couldn’t, he did not know that Mary had learnt some basics of sign language.
He searched with his eye for a book and pen to communicate with Mary, but he didn’t find any.
“Owen, don’t mind this girl, she is an enemy,” the new girl said.
“An enemy?” Owen said in sign language. The new girl nodded.
“I’m not an enemy,” Mary said in sign language so Owen can know that she also understood a little of sign language.
Owen was stunned when he saw Mary speak in sign language. He raised his brows and smiled at Mary. The new girl wondered why Owen was smiling at Mary, when he should be angry at Mary.
Mary blushed at Owen’s smile. The girl stood and was confused.
“She is the enemy,” Mary said again in sign language.
Owen smiled the more. He was smiling because he liked how smart Mary was in learning sign language in a single night. Sign language should take six months at least in knowing the basics.
He was happy that Mary could speak in sign language, but sad that she came in abruptly when he was about to receive the kiss that he thought would make him speak.
“Mary, why would you come in unannounced?” Owen asked in sign language. His smiling face had changed to a serious one.
Mary noticed that, and her blush quickly faded.
“I think you should not have your first kiss with this girl,” Mary replied.
“Why? Have you been watching us?” Owen asked.
“No. Just that I know that you will speak if you have your first kiss with the right lady,” Mary said.
“Do you know the right lady?” Owen asked in sign language.
“No, please,” Mary replied.
“The girl standing here told me the prophecy without anyone telling her, and she told me that she is the right lady,” Owen said in sign language.
“I do not think so,” Mary said.
“And are you the right lady?” Owen asked in sign language.
Mary stared at Owen with a sorry face, she couldn’t reply the question.
“Owen, you know what? This girl is truly an enemy, she did not want you to speak, she is also jealous because it seems she is having a crush on you,” the new girl said and looked at Owen.
Owen sighed heavily and glanced at the two ladies, one at a time.
“Well, watch and see how I will kiss Owen in your presence and watch him speak. Then we shall see who the enemy is,” the new girl said.
“No! You can’t kiss her, please don’t,” Mary said and took a step closer to the lady.
“Do not allow me to hurt you, I will not like to lay my hands on you. So, if you really like yourself, please go out, or at least stay far away from us and watch us kiss,” the new girl said and sat back in her seat opposite Owen.
She held Owen by his cheeks, and Owen who was confused hesitated, but the girl encouraged him.
“Trust me Owen, do this. I really want you to speak, you will not regret it, trust me,” the new girl said and drew Owen’s mouth closer to hers.
“Is this a porn house?” Jude said as he walked in.
Jude did not know anything about Owen receiving first kiss from the right lady, he stepped in because he reasoned that Mary was not happy because they were about to kiss; he did not want Mary to be sad for any reason.
The new girl had joy leaping in her heart when she realized that she had defeated Mary, she smiled the more when she held Owen’s cheeks, her belly stormed with happiness as she drew Owen’s mouth closer to hers, but sadness arose from the deepest part of her heart when she was just about to kiss Owen and a voice suddenly disturbed her from behind.
She wanted to forcefully kiss Owen, but Owen disengaged from her immediately he heard the voice of someone from the entrance.
The girl turned her head and saw Jude coming.
Who the hell is this guy? the new girl thought as she saw Jude enter.
Jude coughed faintly and stood beside Mary.
“I can see you want to kiss Owen, are you a porn star? Why must you kiss him? I have being liking Mary for a long time now and I had never even thought of kiss, don’t you know that Mary cannot stand you kissing Owen?” Jude said and frowned.
The new girl who was frustrated stood up, anger filled her head. It is you who is bold enough to come and stop what I wanted to do, she thought. Her anger kept boiling and she moved towards Jude.
“Do you want to fight me, huh? Fight me, fight me,” Jude said and pushed his chest out to the new girl who was standing very close to him.
The new girl started casting spells inaudibly as she stood very closely to Jude. Jude noticed her mouth was moving and he smirked.
“What the hell is she saying?” Jude giggled and turned to Mary. Mary was also trying to decipher why the new girl moved very close to Jude and was uttering some inaudible words. The new girl’s hand shook all of a sudden and she touched Jude on his chest, Jude fell down suddenly.
Owen arched his brow and stood up
“What is this?” Owen said fretfully in sign language to the lady whose eyes was now red.
She stretched her shaking hand towards Owen’s chest, Mary saw that what happened to Jude might happen to Owen, she stood in defense of Owen and the new girl’s shaky hand touched Mary’s chest instead.
