When Love Speaks (episode 1)
Angel couldn't be happier, her dream of studying her dream course in her dream university has finally come to reality. she just gained admission into one of the reputable university in the
country, to study Economics. she had already completed the registration process and had also done all necessary arrangement. she can't wait to attend her first lecture. she was very anxious.
She sat on her bed,thinking of how life on campus would be like. she would be spending the next 4 years of her life on campus.
It was already 10:30pm, but she still didn't feel like sleeping. she was really anxious. she would move to her hostel in school the next day. she sighed and lay on her bed. her gaze were fixed on the ceiling.
" I will be having my first lecture in school tomorrow" she mumbled to herself.
"and I still have to move my luggage to my hostel also. and I will also be meeting my roommate. I just pray she will be nice to be with, because I can't afford to spend the next 4 years of my life with someone that will always get on my nerves."
She rolled from one side of her bed to the other, trying to get some sleep.
Jewel sat on a chair in his room. so many thoughts were running through his mind. he had just gained admission into one of the prestigious university in the country, to study his dream course, Economics. Lectures would resume fully the next day, but that seemed not to be his problem at the moment. He didn't even plan to attend lectures for the whole of that week. His main concern was to be with the love of his life, Jane, whose matriculation ceremony was also the next day. Jewel and Jane gained admission same year, but in different schools. while Jewel gained admission into a reputable federal university in the south west, Jane gained admission in a private university in the south east. They had both applied for admission in the same university, but Jane couldn't beat the cut-off mark, so had to apply for her second choice, which is a private university.
Jewel stared blankly into air. His face was slightly curved in a smile.
"finally Jane, I can now see your face once more. I have missed you so much. how I wished we gained admission in the same university. things would have been better. I wouldn't be so lonely. but all the same, it's for our good. we will only be apart for just 4 years. After four years, we will be together again. I will wait for you. I love you so much Jane. I think I should start preparing my things, because I can't wait to see you."
He stood up and walked out of his room.
Angel alighted from a cab in front of the university gate. an average age man also alighted and rushed to the boot to get Angel's luggages down. she settled the cab man and he drove off. she brought out her phone and stared at the screen with smiles on her face. the phone was giving to her by her uncle before she left home this morning. she couldn't control her joy when her uncle presented the phone to her. it will surely make her stay on campus wonderful. she stared at the school gate before her, still with smile on her face.
"I'm surely going to have a wonderful time here on campus" she said to herself.
she carried her bags and walked into the school.
jewel parked the remaining clothes on his bed into the bag beside him. every other things had been arranged already. he will be leaving home any moment from now. He had already made his parent believe that he was moving to campus, and they had already given him their blessing, not knowing that he was actually going to see his girlfriend in a university in the far east. the only thought in his mind was to be with his girlfriend in an important moment of her life. he didn't even informed her that he was coming. he wanted to surprise her. he face curved in a smile just imagining how happy Jane would be to see him.
"Jane I know you will be surprised to see me. I know you will never believe that I can abandon my study just to be with you. that's to show you how much I love you. I know you will be very happy to see me. just wait for me. I Will be with you soon" he said and hastened the arranging of the clothes in his bag.
Angel rushed to the faculty building for her first lecture. she had finally arrange her luggages in her hostel. she didn't meet anyone in the room when she entered her room. maybe her roommate would have gone for lectures. she left her room immediately she was done arranging her things. this was her first lecture and she wouldn't want to be late for it. she got to the faculty building exactly 10:55am. she didn't know her way around and had to asked for help in locating the place for her lecture.
she saw a guy walking towards her and dicided to ask for direction.
"sorry excuse me" she said, immediately the guy got to her
the guy stopped and turned to face her.
"how can I locate hall 3A" she asked
There was obviously no response from the guy. he just stared intensely at Angel, probably wondering why someone will be this beautiful. Angel is obviously a beauty to behold. she is tall, had the shape of a model, possesses of a great/enchanting/full-lipped smile, bright eyes, medium sized nose, good jaw line and an angelic voice that can melt the anger in a man's heart.
"sorry, I said how can I locate hall 3A" she asked again, not sure if he heard her the first time.
"oh! hall 3A" he said.
"it is over there" he responded, pointing at a particular building.
"thanks" Angel said and hasten her step to the building immediately.
The class was almost filled to the brim when she got there. she could see the number of heads that turned when she walked in. she walked to the back seat and sat comfortably, not minding the number of stares she was getting from most guys in the class.
The lecturer walked in few minutes later and went straight to the business of the day. everyone in class focused their attention on what the lecturer was teaching.
Jewel had been busy walking round the campus, trying to locate the faculty of social science. The matriculation ceremony was already over when he got to the school, and every students had gone to their respectives faculty to take pictures with family and friends.
After walking several minutes, he finally located the faculty of social science. the number of students he saw on matriculation gown when he walked into the faculty amazed him. he stood at the entrance of the faculty, thinking of what next to do.
"how I am going to find Jane in this large crowd." he said, feeling exhausted.
He stood at the entrance, staring at people walking in and out of the faculty, without making any move.
His gaze suddenly caught a set of students taking pictures beside a car at the far right. He took a closely look at them and realized Jane was among them. His joy knew no bound when he saw Jane. The smile on his face was visible. He heaved a sigh of relief and walked slowly towards her. He stopped and stared at her from a distance, with his face still curved in a smile. just imagining how surprised Jane would be when she saw him, is making him smile. he decided to surprise her by calling her name from a distance. he sighed and call out her name
"Jane" he called
Jane quickly turned to the direction the voice came from. She froze immediately she saw Jewel. her mouth went wide open but words could not come out of it. Jewel walked to meet her still grinning from ear to ear. He hugged her immediately he got to her and held her tightly to himself. he freed her and stared deeply into her eyes. The shock on Jane's face was still visible.
"I know you will be very surprise to see me. I actually wanted this to be a surprise, that's why I didn't call you before coming. I wouldn't miss your matriculation for anything." he said, smiling sheepishly.
there was no response from Jane. she still had the surprise look on her face.
Jewel held her hands and stared into her eyes.
"Happy matriculation dear. I miss you so much. I'm so happy to be here with you." he said.
still no response from Jane.
Jewel notice the look on her face.
"are you okay? what's wrong?" he asked feeling concern.
Just when Jewel was about to speak further, a voice called Jane's name from behind. They both turned to see a guy standing few distance away from them. He was also on matriculation gown and his face was curved in a smile. Jane eyes widen in shock when she saw him, but she tried to mask the shock with a smile. she flashsed a smile to the guy. The guy quickly walked to meet her and hugged her, not noticing the presence of Jewel. He freed Jane from his hold and looked into her eyes.
"happy matriculation dear" he said with smiles.
"happy matriculation to you too" Jane responded also with smiles.
They both stared silently at each other.
"so Jane, can we take pictures together" Jewel asked, bringing them back to reality, because it seemed they had forgotten about him.
They both turned to face Jewel. That was when the guy realized Jewel was standing beside them.
"who is he?" the guy asked Jane.
Jane stared at the floor for a while. she stared from Jewel to the guy, back to Jewel. the look on her face showed that she's going to hurt one of them, when she introduced them to each other. she stared at them once more and sighed.
"Daniel" she called the guy softly.
"this is Jewel, my friend from Lagos. he came all the way from Lagos to celebrate this day with me" she introduced Jewel to the guy.
Even though Jewel didn't like the fact that Jane introduced him as her friend instead of her boyfriend, he still flashed a smile at the guy.
"Jewel" Jane called softly.
"This is Daniel......" she paused and stared at Jewel with a remorseful look.
"Daniel is my boyfriend" she let it out
