🍭THE POOR GIRL 🍭
🍬EPISODE 2 and 3🍬
Melody left the principal office immediately after she was being directed by the principal to where her class is being located SS 1 A.
She slowly took the stair case to avoid falling because that was her first time of climbing a stair case.
Mrs Hannah was the biology teacher was teaching when Melody emerged from the door.
“Good morning ma “Melody greeted bowing her knees a little in sign 👆of respect.
“Yes good morning ”
“Please ma, may I come in?
“Yes you may come in”she replied and she stepped inside the class. All eyes were feeding on Melody especially the male ones because of her beauty while some of the girls wished to be her friend immediately.
She walked to where her seat was located and she found her name boldly written on it Melody Armstrong.
Still none of the students paid attention to Mrs Hannah again as they were all busy stairing at the new girl.
After 30 minutes of teaching, Mrs Hannah finally left the class giving space for the students to continue with their noise as usual.
Melody didn’t talk to anyone nor,
look up but she was busy writing down some things in her notes.
Mr Adams finally entered the class and everyone stood up to greet him.
He had a pair of spectacle in his eyes, with a brown trouser matched with a long tie that looks like that of Mr Bean.
He stood facing the class, and looked around it was obvious that she was looking for the new girl. soon his eyes caught with that of melody and he signalled her to come outside.
“Melody, come out”
Melody walked out and stood with Mr Adams the principal of GOLDEN GATES SCHOOL.
“Everyone, she’s a new student here and you need to treat her as one of you.
She’s here in scholarship and that shows how brilliant she is and I want you all to copy her lifestyle and make her stay here a pleasant one.
“Is that clear to everyone?
“Yes sir “they all chorused
“Good, you can now go to your sit Melody.
Mr Adams left, and just immediately as he left, Amanda who is popularly known as the daughter of the most millionaire in the state walked up to where melody was sitting, she knack the locker to gain her attention but melody didn’t say a word.
“I can see that you are here in scholarship, I know that your parents can’t afford your school fees the way you look”Amanda said out loud and almost everyone laughed at melody thus making her to remember her poor background.
“Don’t worry baby girl just know that very soon you will be kicked out of this school by me” Amanda.
Henry was watching what happened from his sit, he is a tall handsome guy with a fair complexion but the problem is that his brain is empty.
His parents have really tried their best to make sure that there’s something stored in his brain but it was fruitless, even when he is still schooling in golden gates school no sign of intelligency in him.
The drama was becoming unbearable for him to watch as she found out that melody was already crying because she’s so weak to talk back.
“Enough of this madness Amanda,what has come over you again?
“Because she’s schooling in scholarship doesn’t mean that she’s poor, so stop this madness for Christ sake”Henry voice echoed the class thus causing total silence as the girl looked at Melody in an angry eyes and smirk then left.
Seriously speaking she has been crushing on Henry thinking that he will noticed it and make a move but though Henry noticed it but he wasn’t ready yet for anything.
“Am sorry dear, that was harsh”Henry apologized to Melody on her behave and the scene almost made Amanda run mad instantly for doing that, but Henry didn’t mind but sat down with Melody.
“I’m Henry by name, it’s a pleasure to have you here “he said but melody didn’t say anything but only looked do feeling the tears that has formed in her eyes ready to drop because of the insult Amanda gave her.
Henry knew that she’s not in the right mode, maybe he has to try again later so he left her to be alone.
The rest of the day was so boring to Melody as the environment was new to her and she didn’t have any friend there. finally the school bell gave a loud sound telling all the students that it’s closing time.
Everyone rushed down the the assembly hall for the closing prayer, Melody was the last person to arrive the hall.
After the prayers, the school compound was filled with cars as parents come to pick their children home.
Henry wave at her from a distance and then entered his father car and they zoom off.
The environment became deserted once again as everyone left with their parents in car but her own story was different as she began to walk out if the school compound with her legs.
She got home and found out that her mom has not returned from selling her oranges on the road, so she changed into something casual, carried the orange tray and set into the road to make her own sales.
As early as #6:45 am melody was already in the school and she was the first person in the school compound thus giving her the opportunity to have a clear walk around the school compound and know how it looked like.
Students began coming to school and soon the school compound was filled again with a huge number of students.
Melody had already went into her class, she was busy reading her note book at that spare time which was something difficult for most of the students to do but here is melody doing it in the early hour of the day.
As she was reading, Henry entered the class with smiles on his lips.
“Good morning melody “he greeted but got no response. he wondered whether she is deaf or dump so he greeted again to be sure but still there was no response so he decided not to bother her again maybe she’s dump or something.
The bell for morning devotion came and everyone rushed to the hall including Melody. The devotion ended pretty well after a sermon by the school chaplain which the students were being dismissed to their class.
Amanda arrived the school immediately after the morning devotion and her eyes went directly to Melody sit but she was not there but her books were there.
Henry too was looking at Amanda very closely to know her next step. Immediately she sat down, the biology teacher Mrs Hannah entered again for the left over note the previous day to be completed.
She didn’t waste time after completing the previous note, she introduced a new topic on the board which has never been taken before.
“Can someone brief how Amoeba looks like? Mrs Hannah asked and the class went silent as none has the idea to the answer, she looked around the person to answer but none seems to know.
“Yes, Amanda tell us something about Amoeba ”
Amanda was too shy to stand as she has no clue of the answers to give.
After waiting for a while, Mrs Hannah saw that Melody was busy writing down things in her note book which instantly provoked her and she angrily shouted at Melody.
“Hey young girl, what are you doing when I’m teaching?
“Stand up now immediately! Mrs Hannah commanded and she obeyed and stood up. Henry wondered what made her to stand up because he thought that she was deaf and dumb.
“Now tell the class what you know about Amoeba”Mrs Hannah requested.
“Ma, Amoeba is an organism that has no shape and it is being classified into kingdoms and species and it’s unlike paramecium and euglina that has shape.
“MA that’s all I know about Amoeba “Melody said in her angelic voice.
Mrs Hannah opened her mouth to speak but nothing came out of it because she was really stunned with the answer Melody gave her and it was the correct answer.
She has never seen someone as brilliant as Melody before, meanwhile Amanda was smiling thinking that Melody will be punished not knowing that Melody is far more better than her.
“Can you guys clap for this beautiful girl? Mrs Hannah said and everyone clapped for Melody except Amanda who refused to clap with a frown look on her face wondering what could make her teacher to tell the students to clap for that poor bitch .
“You may sit down dear, what’s your name?
“Mr name is Melody Armstrong ma”she replied
“You really make me proud with your answer, keep up “she replied
“Thank you ma’am, it’s my pleasure she replied and that alone killed Amanda.

🍭THE POOR GIRL 🍭
Mrs Hannah was so glad that finally the type of student she has been looking for is finally in her class which was Melody.
Henry too couldn’t believe that Melody was this smart because the topic has never been taken before so he wondered how come she knew the answer to the question.
The rest of the lesson was so interesting to Mrs Hannah as Melody supplies the answer to almost all the question that she asked thus increasing her love for her.
“Meet me at the staff room during break time “Mrs Hannah said to Melody who only nod her head and she left.
Melody return to her mode of silence again without saying w word to anyone but focused on her books that was before her.
Amanda had already left the class due to how jealous she was that the girl she hated is now becoming famous in the school.
After several lessons from different teachers, all seems to love Melody for her intelligence because there’s no class that she will not provide an answer to a question.
The bell came on for break and the time was #11:30 which was to last for 30 minutes. students rushed out of their class to the cafeteria to enjoy themselves with snacks and all sort of things but Melody wasn’t interested knowing that she can’t afford those.
Henry walk to her and place a hand on her shoulder.
“Melody, I like your bravery ”
Melody look up at him for the first time and smiled which almost got Henry wonder how come the sudden smile.
“Thank you Henry, I appreciate ”
“You are welcome dear.
why not come let’s go to the cafeteria and have some lunch?
Immediately Henry said that her mode changed instantly because she was not ready for another embarrassment by anyone, she shook her head negatively.
“No Henry I’m fine, I’m not hungry “She said and stood up remembering that her biology teacher asked her to come during break, she step outside her class but was confused because she didn’t know where the staff room is located so she went back inside the class and stood by the door.
“Henry, I need your help “she said from the door and Henry smiled knowing that she’s now asking for his help and then walk to her.
“I need you to show me the staff room, I want to see Mrs Hannah ”
“Okay fine I will come only on one condition ”
Melody frown hearing him mention condition.
“Okay fine don’t worry I will go alone “she said almost immediately and wanted to walk away but Henry stopped her.
“Okay, I will take you there “Henry said
“Enh! wonders shall never end, now you have win a name already in this school and if that’s not enough you want to snatch my boyfriend from me? Amanda said coming out of her hiding place under the stair case clapping her hands.
“You this bitch, you think that you can come here and control anyone with your witchcraft power as you like? never! you can’t control me”she keep on ranting
“Amanda, what’s all this all about? Henry asked fuming in anger
“Hey you, close that your mouth and stand here, this doesn’t include you “Amanda said
“You dare raise your voice at me Amanda?
“Kpaaahhh “sounds the heavy slap Henry gave her which resounded in the class and she held her cheek.
“You slapped me Henry?
“And i can do that again, who is your boyfriend? why are you trying to act rude to this Melody? Since she came here what crime has she committed that you can’t allow her rest? Henry said.
Melody was already tired of the drama so she left the place heading to the staff room praying that she find the way to it and luckily for her after 5 minutes of walking she found it.
Back to the busy roads where cars were driving up and down, Mrs Armstrong Melody’s mommy was busy selling orange to her customers under the hot sun but she didn’t care.
She didn’t want her daughter to end up like her uneducated that’s why she’s struggling to see her through in education.
She was thinking about her family when she didn’t see an incoming vehicle approaching, before she realized what was happening she found herself on the floor with blood and she lost consciousness.
Back to the school, Melody was having a great time with Mrs Hannah discussing as if they have known each other before and to be frank Mrs Hannah love increased for her as if she was her child because she had no child at her age but she was happily married.
Melody was still talking with Mrs Hannah when she heard her name being called in the staff room.
She turned to see the person she didn’t even expect.
“Oh my goodness, Mrs Chika?
She ran and embrace her while Hannah sat down and wondered where they’ve known each other before.
“Melody is this you? Mrs Chika asked
“Yes ma’am, it’s me “she replied
“What are you doing here?
“how come you are here, what about your former school? she asked
“Ma’am, remember that scholarship exams that we wrote, I won the scholarship and I was sent to school here ma’am “she replied smiling.
“wow, Melody you still surprises me with your intelligence. keep going dear I love this ”
“Thank you ma’am ”
Mrs Chika was her former Economics teacher in her former school, she came visiting the school but was surprised to see melody there but she was not shocked because she knew what sh is capable of doing.
She exhale and smile.
After spending an hour with her teacher, she left the staff room and immediately she stepped outside she heard her name being called again.
It was Amanda with her team of other four girls. Deborah, peace, praise and joy standing and watching her.
“You have chewed more than you can swallow young lady “Amanda said and walked to her followed by her team.
“Stay away from Henry cause he’s mine and mine alone if not you will regret it “she threatened
“It is so unfortunate that you need medical attention or else you will run mad soon”Melody fied back which startled them as they were all thinking that she will be crying but they were wrong.
She walked out of them and none dare to stop her or follow her.
Mrs Armstrong was rushed to the hospital but she had loss so much blood thus giving her 25% of surviving.
Melody got home and found the whole house empty without his father and that was strange to her because her father normally stays at home.
She waved off the idea and then continued undressing just then she heard a sound of a vehicle in their compound and she went outside to see people gathered around his father outside with blood all over his body and he was badly wounded.
“Father! she shouted and run to where he was while people shook their heads in pity
