🍭THE POOR GIRL🍭
Henry couldn’t think straight as all his thoughts was on melody. It’s obvious that he loved her so much before he had to say his mind to her. Melody at the end was not thinking that much about Henry cause she was not ready for anything called relationship.
#7:00pm (Same day)
The night was a scary one as there was no moon talkless of electric light were melody and her parents live, the sound of the crickets and other insects that always walks in the night was heard which added to it gloomliness. Suddenly the cloud turned from normal to an unpleasant one as it began to make some heavy noise and lightening began flashlight thus making people to understand that there’s going to be an heavy downpour. That was the worst thing Mr Armstrong was expecting.
Soon it began drizzling and melody had to gather buckets to place at the licking area in the house, but to me it was of no use because of the big gap the zinc had. The rain finally came down as an heavy one with thunder and lightening, the room was no longer pleasant again for anyone to step his or her feet in there as the water floods in the house Mr Armstrong thus giving them stress to scop the water away.
It was so heartbreaking to see that there was no place in the house that had no lickage, even where they use to sleep water took over all the place. Melody watched as her parents were struggling to make sure the water is gone, the tears that was formed in her eyes finally dropped as she cried for the condition of her parents thus giving her the challenge to study hard so as to be the one that will change her parents condition.
The night was so cold for Mrs Armstrong, a poor woman like her and she began shivering, Melody who was watching shook her head as she hand over a blanket to her. Mr Armstrong walked to his wife and then embrace her to help her feel a little warm.
“Mom, dad you have done enough you have to rest now”melody said
“My daughter there’s no resting for us tonight, it’s better you rest so that you won’t be late to school tomorrow”Mrs Armstrong said out of motherly love.
“No mom, I insist you both should rest and I handle it myself “Melody said
“My daughter where are we going to sleep because the water has taken everywhere ”
“I already thought of that earlier before I said you should rest, you guys should to the church the door is always open go and sleep there till tomorrow. Then I will sleep here “Melody said praying her parents agree to that.
“Your mom alone can go, I will stay back with you and……
Melody didn’t allow him to finish his speech thus she interrupted.
“Dad you can’t let your wife go alone, follow her”
“Okay, I will take her there and then come back for the night “Mr Armstrong said.
“No dad, I will handle it. You both should go.
After so much of arguments Mr Armstrong decided to go and sleep in the church with his wife.
It was an heavy task for melody to do all the water drilling alone. The rain didn’t want to stop as it kept increasing it’s water, the house was filled with water already as melody sweep it out and scoop it out with a bowl.
Someone who saw melody at that moment will surely know that she’s passing through a lot for her to be doing such talkless of Amanda ranting her mouth and also treating her bad.
Melody was still scooping out water and the door was locked from inside when she heard a knock on it, she wondered whether its her dad that stubbornly came back. She stood up and walked to the door then twist it open. To her greatest shock and surprise there stood before her Henry with two umbrella and rain coat on his body and one in his hand. Melody didn’t understand what was happening at that moment, the question that was running through her mind was “how did Henry get to know my place?” and there was no answer to her question yet. Melody stood there affixed as unmovable figure and Henry too knew that she’s really shocked to see him in the rain in their compound.
Without time wasting Henry finally speak up
“I know you are shocked but I came to help you ”
“But I didn’t asked for help and……
“Shhhhhhh”Henry placed his hands on her mouth preventing her from saying anything.
“I came to understand that there are people who always need help and you are one of them ”
Melody was really stunned as she was contemplating whether to let him in to help her out or to send him back.
“Sorry Henry I don’t need your help “she said and 🤗 Henry didn’t agree to that as they keep on exchanging words, just then she remembered that the water is increasing in the house, without thinking twice she ran back to the house and Henry didn’t hesitate he ran in also.
Henry had to do the work also as he helped melody who was so doom at that moment seeing Henry a guy from a rich family suffering for them.
She looked at him from the corner of her eyes while they still battling with the water and discovered that he was doing it with all sincerity.
How did Henry get to know Melody’s house?
How did he know that the house had leakage?
🍭THE POOR GIRL 🍭
The sun was so hot making the Monday afternoon for the students who were trekking unbearable for them and melody was one of them.
Melody was walking in the streets returning from school as she kept tweaking her buttocks this making the guys who saw her that moment to have instant reaction in their inner body as if melody was theirs.
“Follow that lady there “Henry said to his driver who came to pick him up earlier but he refused to go waiting for melody to leave for him to follow.
“okay young master “the driver replied following melody who didn’t have the idea that she was being followed by Henry. Henry finally stopped at melody’s house as she enters inside the house after greeting her parents and Henry shook his head in satisfaction.
“Let’s go back”he said to his driver as they reverse back and go home.
That was how Henry discovered where melody was living and her poor condition. The next day in school melody tried her best to avoid Henry because she was so shy to talk to him knowing that he will ask her about her response.
The SS1 students were hanging at different angles some male and female while some were alone pressing their phones due to the fact that exam has not yet started for the day. Henry too was pressing his phone 📱 watching a comic video with Gladys which made them to laugh at the funny scene as melody sat at a corner watching them.
Amanda on the other was so scared, she was not her real self as she thinks about what Gladys will do to her again. She took out her phone too and scroll through her photo gallery and seeing the picture she took when Desmond was talking to melody, a thought rushed through her heart as she smiled. Soon the bell came for exam as they all put their phones back preparing for exam, Melody too returned to her sit still moody without saying a word to anyone.
After the exam has been written, Amanda thought of the best way to approach melody so as to have a word with her.
“Melody, please excuse me”Amanda said for the first time she has ever talked calmly to melody and melody knew that it was before of how Gladys frightened her the previous day so she walked up to her.
“Melody, please let’s talk. Let’s walk out of here so as to prevent Gladys from seeing us”
They left to the school garden together with Amanda.
“Melody, I’m really sorry for everything I’ve done to you. It was the devil that pushed me into it, I’m really sorry please “she said shedding fake tears as melody watched her.
“I didn’t have anything against you and I still don’t have anything against you, so I’ve forgiven you a long time ago “Melody said
“Really? Thank you very much dear”she said and hug melody.
“But…… “she said and stopped, twisting her finger like a little child.
“But what Amanda ”
“Can we be friends melody, please I beg of u, I’m really sorry about the past I’m a changed person now”she pleaded. Melody looked down not knowing whether to accept it or not but finally agreed.
“Fine, I’ve heard u and we are now friends is that okay?
“oh thank you so very much melody I’m grateful “she said and hug melody again.
Henry and Gladys were on their way to the garden when Gladys sighted Amanda standing with melody and immediately her expression changed to an angry one as she walked to them thinking that Amanda is abusing melody again. She was shocked to see melody smiling with Amanda for the first time which made her to wondered what happened.
“Hey bitch what are you doing here? Gladys asked in angry tone pointing to Amanda
“No, Gladys don’t use such words on a fellow human being like you “she replied touching Gladys and Gladys was so shocked when she heard that. Was it not the same Amanda that used the word “bitch on melody? then what is melody trying to do now.
“Melody I don’t understand this, tell me what is happening here?”
“Fine, if you want to know. Amanda here has apologized for everything that happened and she said that she’s truly sorry” Amanda started to bring out fresh tears again just to show Gladys that she’s really sorry and Gladys couldn’t help than to laugh out real loud which got melody irritated.
“You Amanda? Pretending to be sorry? You must be out of your mind. Leave this place immediately “Gladys commanded and melody stepped in.
“Gladys just accept the fact she’s really sorry ”
“No melody, she’s not. She’s only pretending and fooling you. I’m out of this place “Gladys said and left walking away and shaking her buttocks St the same time. Melody tried to call her back but she paid deaf ear to her.
“It’s okay melody let her be for now”henry finally speak up after standing there for a while.
“Thank you Henry for understanding too. Melody see you later “she said and hurry out of the garden without looking back thus giving Henry the chance he needed to talk with melody as he smiled with his two hands in his trouser pocket.
Melody too knew why he was there smiling but she wasn’t ready to have a conversation with him as she didn’t know what to say, so she tried to walk away too as Henry grab her and turned her around in a way their eyes met and their lips were not far from each other. Henry look deep into her eyes as melody returned the eye contact too. Desmond who was watching from a far felt jealous.
“I’m sorry Henry but I have to go “she said and walked away.
The school finally closed for the day as all the students left both senior and junior including Melody who walked under the hot sun. Desmond the senior prefect was walking out of his class alone, it was only him left in the school compound as he head out of their class block.
“Desmond! He heard his name being called which startled him because he was the only one left, he turned around only to see Amanda learning in the wall with her phone in her hand. That was an insult to him for Amanda to call him by his real name.
“What gives you the effrontery to call me my name? He asked angrily and Amanda end up laughing.
“Hey young man relax let’s sought out issues before you act “she said arrogantly as Desmond wondered what she wanted to say.
“It’s obvious that you love someone and the person doesn’t love you back “Amanda said and Desmond wondered where she was driving to.
“And who could that be? He asked forming innocent
“Melody of course “she replied thus making Desmond to be frightened of how she got to know which she noticed.
“I’m in your same shoe that’s why we need to talk “she said
“I will love Henry but he is blind to see that, so it’s time we get what belongs to us”Amanda said.
“I will help you get melody, as you will also help me get Henry “Amanda explained
“And how can that be possible? Desmond asked
“Watch me”Amanda replied and let out a loud laughter.
