We sat beside each other as we watched a home video. My heart pounding rapidly as i sat close to him, i could tell deep down within me that i had fallen in love yet again. He simply sat beside me like a log of wood, focusing all his attention to the movie.
“What is wrong with this boy?” i wondered unhappily,
“Doesn’t he seem attracted to me the way i feel for him?, i began asking myself questions i can’t give answers to.
That fateful day truly was the third time i was spending my afternoon with him, yet he failed to notice my moves, he only acted like he has never developed any iota of feelings for any lady before.
Samuel was an attractive wealthy male, who caught my fancy right from the first day i packed into the new lodge (hostel). Unlike most guys, he kept to himself and behaved like a saint, winning my heart with his godly behaviour. But getting him to reciprocate my good gestures towards him was a very hard task.
His intense behaviour soon began irritating me, forcing me to make up my mind not to visit him again after that fateful Tuesday evening. Because I had my pride to protect, which really was more important than my likeness for him.
He was in his 300 level, while i was in my 2nd year in the university. My feelings for him were really strong and divine, but i couldn’t display my emotions the way i wanted, without appearing cheap and disgusting.
Finally by 8pm, the movie ended. I sighed and got up from his chair,
“Good night” i said to him unhappily, but surprisingly, he held my hand strongly and looked up at me with fire in his eyes,
“Please don’t go yet, there is something i wish to tell you” he pleaded. I gazed into his eyes and smiled,
“Finally he is living up to expectation” i reasoned,
“Please sit down” he begged humbly. I rolled my eyes and sat beside him,
“I know you do trust me a lot, that’s why i’m the only guy you always visit, but i can’t help it anymore, i have tried holding back my feelings but i can’t any longer, because it’s killing me silently.
I have been dreaming and praying to have someone like you. Please will you grant my request and be my special friend??”, “I have been in love with you from the very first day i saw you” he pleaded nervously with shaking lips. I stared at him coldly even though i was very happy inside.
“I don’t think it will be possible, let’s just be friends” i replied and stood up. He tried to draw my hand, but i snatched it from his grasp,
“Goodnight we will see tomorrow” i murmured, gave him one last look and left for my room.
I rushed to my room, hugged my teddy bear happily, and heaved a sigh of relief.
I was very much delighted.
“At last, hmmmm” I murmured happily, falling asleep and dreaming of good times………
