🍭THE POOR GIRL
Melody woke up the next day and the event of the previous day flashed back into her mind as she dressed up do r school this making her to smile like someone who has loss her senses.
Meanwhile at golden gate school the news had already gone viral that Melody the new girl is pregnant that’s why she’s absent from school.
How the news spread around like that was not known to anyone and who took up the responsibility of spreading the fake news about Melody.
Even Mrs Hannah heard it and she was shocked to the bones especially for the fact that she didn’t see melody to be such a girl.
A smile crossed Amanda lips and she gives her friends high shouting out that her plan has finally worked out.
She went ahead to tell people that even if she comes to school the next day because she knew that she will definitely not stay away from school forever that she has aborted it. she went ahead telling people to observe Melody when she comes to the school that she will be thinking and will be dull in school even that she will be looking pale too so as to convince them to believe what she said to be true.
Melody finally dressed up and looked at herself in the small mirror in their house not minding to check on her parents because Mr Patrick had taken proper care of them as she always wanted.
She took her books and left for school, on getting to the school the school assembly was on and none noticed her presence except the junior students.
Amanda was standing at the front side when she immediately turned and saw melody standing at the far end. she tap her friends and they went ahead and tap other people and soon all eyes were fed on melody as she stood looking confused whether she’s smelling or she’s not normal thus making her to feel uncomfortable especially how the male eyes moves rhythmically up and down at her.
Soon the devotion ended and she left to their class almost immediately, she took the staircase up and then settle on her desk bringing out her note book as usual.
Everyone who came into the class gave her a disdainful look and proceeded to their sit taking time to examine her to see whether the news is true which got melody confused.
Henry as well came and pass her without looking at her or even saying hi which was unlike him and it was strange to melody as everyone keeps stairing at her. she wondered whether she’s a ghost.
Melody was a weak type who she’d tears so easily and tears were already formed in her eyes ready to drop as soon as possible, to her fate the geography teacher Mr Anuma entered the class which made everyone stood up and greet him and that saved melody from her stress of thinking.
Without wasting time Mr Anuma proceed to the board and wrote the topic of the day lesson which was “DENUDATION “.
“Good morning class “Mr Anuma greeted
“Good morning sir”They respond
“Today we are going to deal with the topic that says “Denudation “and I need your cooperation. is that clear?
“Good, can someone tell me what is denudation?
Half of the class lift up their hands exception of Melody pretending as if she doesn’t know the answer to the question.
“Yes you tell us what is denudation “Mr Anuma said pointing to Amanda who lifted her hand so high for melody to see that she’s brilliant too.
Yes it’s true that Amanda is brilliant too and she normally takes up the first position in the class and she always represent her school in any inter-school competition.
Amanda stood up slowly and smiled.
“Sir, denudation is the washing and wearing away of the earth surface by gradual washing and wearing away of such surface “She said boldly
“Good! let’s clap for her “Mr Anuma exclaimed.
“Now can someone here tell me the agents of denudation?
They lift up their hands again and still melody didn’t lift up her hand and Mr Anuma noticed it and pointed at her.
“Yes young girl tell us “he said pointing to melody but she was lost in thought thinking of how to break the record of her family background that she didn’t even heard when her name was being called.
The class went silent immediately to hear what melody will say but to their out most surprise she didn’t say anything she was lost in thought and almost half of the class concluded that the news they heard about her was true.
Mr Anuma asked a girl who sat near her to touch her and immediately the girl touched her, she jerked up from her thought and that was when she noticed that all eyes were on her.
“Now tell the class what I asked you”Mr Anuma requested and melody didn’t know what to say she only stood there like a molten figure wondering what the question was.
Mr Anuma shook his head pitifully and then signalled another person to answer which he did.
“What are you thinking in my class?
“Sir, she’s thinking about her baby that she aborted “Amanda blurted out which got the class in a transfixed situation as their shout echoed the class.
Mr Anuma wondered what could have made Amanda to say such.
“And who asked you to speak for her? Mr Anuma faced Amanda angrily.
“As for you come over here and kneel down here until I finish teaching “He ordered melody who obeyed the instruction and did as instructed.
While kneeling down Henry kept glancing at her feeling the pain in his heart and melody kept returning the glance immediately after.
The rest of the lesson was boring to Melody as she was kneeling down and God finally answered her prayers as Mr Anuma finished his stuff and picked his lesson note and left the class and she stood up almost immediately and her knees were paining her.
Immediately Mr Anuma left, Mrs Hannah who was waiting for him to leave entered the class and didn’t even noticed that melody is in school.
She walked to the board and wrote the topic of the day on the board.
“Good morning everyone, today we are dealing with the topic “REPRODUCTION “,and can someone tell us what is reproduction? She asked and almost immediately all eyes turned to melody to answer the question as if she’s the one holding the key to the answer of the question.
Henry looked away immediately his eyes caught her own.
That was when Mrs Hannah noticed melody presence in the class and she was shocked, and he knew the reason why all the students eyes fed on her too they have heard the news of her pregnancy.
“Sorry class we will continue this class another day, melody follow me now! she ordered and took her books and leave and immediately without asking questions she followed Mrs Hannah to the general staff room.
What’s going to happen in the staff room???
Why is Mrs Hannah calling melody out and why did she end her lesson like that??
🍭THE POOR GIRL 🍭
Melody got to the staff room that was filled with teachers both male and female and they fed their eyes on her this making her to feel shy.
Mrs Hannah sat down on her desk and signalled melody to come to her and melody walked to her.
“What made you to be absent from……. “She didn’t finished her speech when Melody held her stomach and ran out of the staff room and then she vomited outside thus giving Mrs Hannah that shock of her life this making her to believe that the whole news she heard was the truth.
Melody cleaned her mouth with her handkerchief and then walked back into the staff room.
Mrs Hannah shook her head negatively waiting for her to get close and she finally got there.
“You can go now melody “Mrs Hannah said without looking at her and that alone cause melody to be confused thinking about why she called her there and only to tell her to go back without saying anything.
“But ma’am you wanted to…..
“I say go back to the class, I’m done with you cause you have disappointed me” Mrs Hannah shouted thus attracting other teacher to them.
Melody ran out of the staff room without looking back nor paying a listening ear to anyone.
She got to the class and then put down her head on her desk shedding tears, Amanda who was watching her from a far wondered what could have made her run like that.
Melody was still crying without looking up when she felt a hand on her shoulder, she looked up and then saw Gladys looking into her eyes.
Gladys is her classmate who sits next to melody, seeing melody cry everyday really touched her heart and she decided to change the situation.
Henry too was fighting with the urge not to get close to melody but he just couldn’t hold the pains in his heart, though she has messed up.
“Melody, it’s okay stop crying “Gladys said and sat down with melody.
Henry too stood up from his place and walked to melody slowly with his neatly ironed uniform.
“Melody, what happened there?
why are you even crying? please stop crying “He said and sat down too with Gladys next to her.
David too a young handsome dude didn’t like the way they treated melody, so he stood up too and consoled Melody not to worry that all will be fine.
Behold melody didn’t believe what was happening at all that she now has a team of people who is with her on her side.
Just as she was smiling,the running stomach came up again and she held her stomach running down the staircase thus making everyone to exchanged puzzle looks at each other wondering what’s wrong. They all looked through the window and found melody vomiting and they all looked at each other in the eyes that says “So the news is true “.
Amanda who also watched the scene was now laughing so hard that she didn’t know what else to do.
“I told you but you didn’t believe me “Amanda said to her friends
Melody walked into the class as all eyes moved down to her belly part stairing at her and observing to see whether the news is true.
Melody too wondered what could have caused such stomach upset, she walked to where she was sitting.
Henry now believed everything that he heard, he gave melody space to sit as he give her a look she didn’t understand even Gladys too and David were now suspecting her.
Melody didn’t understand what was going on at all as she wondered whether she’s smelling that everyone are stairing at her.
School finally closed for the day as everyone took their bags to leave but melody didn’t show any sign of going home, she sat there looking sober.
Henry walked passed her and then wave a goodbye hand to her and then walk out.
Amanda walked out of the class then turned and smirk at melody who didn’t say anything.
After everyone has left, she finally leaves the school at last with the thought of how everyone behaved with her in school that day but she couldn’t find the right answer to it as she head home.
Mr Patrick got back from work and then checked on Mrs Armstrong to see how she’s fairing and her health was improving but he didn’t informed his family about the situation he is now, but he plan to do so when he get home.
Mr Patrick finally arrived home and was welcomed by his wife and her daughter Amanda who took the briefcase from her taking him inside.
Mr Patrick relaxed on the couch and then took off his suit leaving only his tie on and shirt and black trousers on.
He later told his family about the woman he injured which was melody mother and they decided to pay her a family visit in the evening .
