Love Struck – Chapter Six


“Hey, Good morning,” Paula said from behind. I noticed she was smiling at me, as was I. I couldn’t help it.
“Morning, how are you?” I asked.
“I’m great,” she replied.

“Um….. *I thought about asking her if she got my message, obviously she did. So I just changed the topic*…. Are you going to class?” I asked.
“Yeah,” she replied.

  Whilst we walked, I could feel her hands coming closer to mine. I could feel this bolt of electricity running through my veins.

  Suffice it to say, I was scared. However, I gathered every inch of courage within me and held her hands. She looked at me and smiled. I just grinned.
   ‘Maybe things will turnout well,’ I said to myself.

   After lectures, we went to the cafeteria and she introduced me to Vickie, her roommate. She was also beautiful but not as Paula.

“Hey, my name is Daniel,” I said in a cool manner.
“Nice to meet you,” Vickie responded.


   They say, ‘Live to express not impress.’ Well, that wasn’t applicable to John. He always dressed to impress people. That was his way of living.

“Bro, How does one ask a girl out?” I asked.
“Why are you asking?” he said.
“Just asking.”
“Wait, are you considering Paula?” he asked.
“Um….. Are you hungry? Let’s go grab something to eat.” I said sarcastically.
“You think that can work on me? You better talk.”
“Okay. There’s this Nigerian movie ‘A trip to Jamaica’ that just got released and it’s showing on Continental cinema this Friday night. So I was thinking of buying two tickets and taking Paula along, that’s if she wants to go.”

“She’ll ‘want’ to go,” he said ecstatically. “Finally, you’re becoming smart.”
“So what do you think? Do you think I should go ahead with it or not?” I asked, hoping for a positive response.
“It’s great. She’ll definitely agree,” he said.
“Great, I just need to summon enough courage to ask her.”
“Well, Goodluck with that,” he said as be patted me on the back.
