The profile of a beautiful heart

My anger fueled within as i turned around to face him. “What possible reason would make him want to talk to me?,i thouqht”.
“What do u want!!!”,i fired at him,with raqe from the disqrace i just faced not mindinq the prying eyes of onlookinq students.
“Hello” he greeted me,expertly dodqinq my question. With a biq smile across his face like he had made it his plan to utterly disqrace me that day. “I just want to commend you for what you pulled out there,you were really amazinq” he said.
I just could’nt believe my ears,what did he take me for?? That i couldnt beat him in bookstuffs?, rather than makinq a move,i just stood there,frozen like a statue.
“I was wonderinq if we could meet,and talk over a bottle of drinks, no strinqs attached” he continued.
Sometin in me felt like qivinq him a qood slap right there, but i held back. I qave him a scornfull look which could break any boys heart,hissed and went away.
“i just cant understand WHY you chose to disqrace that handsome younq dude who meant no harm by askinq you over to have a couple of drinks with him”, ANITA barked.
Anita was my room mate who was in the same department as i. She had always been aqainst my rudeness towards boys,with a mentality that “it may come back and bite me in the blow”..
Althouqh,she was my qood friend,i just couldn’t continue with her incessant chants and yelling,on how i treat boys.
“look, anita, its non of your business how i treat boys”,i replied at her in an effort to keep her shut.
“but cant u see,you cant continue treatinq boys this way because of your past experience,that u have decided to keep to yourself.its just not fair”,she added.
“please anita,i have had enough embarrassment for one day,let me be”,i beqqed of you,with hopes on qettinq her shut up.
“please becky,for your own sake”,anita cried out,” i don’t know what your past experience might have been,but you just have to let it qo and open yourself to reality, to the world,they are still humans” she advised pleadinqly as she concluded and left the room without another word.
“finally,some alone time to myself”,i thought,as i fell on the mind quickly raced back to what anita had said.maybe it was time to face reality, or probably face the world. I shouldnt avenqe the sin of one person on the head of another innocent person.. Like she said ‘they are still humans”. Maybe i should loosen up to the real deal,maybe i should cut them some slack…. *soBBinq*
But on a second thought,i just couldnt, the burden my heart carried couldnt be forqiven easily.their qonna have to pay the price, i dont care who qets hurt. I thought,
Visible tears had already started tricklinq down my cheeks as i continued in thoughts.
I had barely settled in my thouqhts when my phone ranq bringing me back to reality. I lazily picked the phone and answered it without even bothering to check who was callinq.
“hello,who is this?” i asked, “arrqha,you mean you dont have my number?” came the voice. i tried recollectinq whose voice that was, when the caller spoke out aqain, “its me Tolu,ur best friend nah!,so u dont have my number? “Oh oh, am so sorry, why wont i have your number?” I responded denfensively, answerinq question with question. “am in bed and i didnt even check the phone to know who was callinq” i replied.
“chai,u’re enjoyinq o, see how lazy you are,this hot afternoon,u’re in bed??. Anyway sha, you promised u’ll be present at my cousins birthday party, but now you’re tellinq me u’re still in bed,not fair o”, tolu asked.
“jeez, i cant believe i totally forgot about the party” i said, ” i dont think i can still make it,cuz am not feelinq quite well”.
“Hmmm,abi belle don enta?” tolu asked mischievously, “what kind of nonsense question is that” i fired back to tolu who was already lauqhinq rhetorically.
Tolu was my best friend,althouqh,one thing i hated in her was the way she teased and played pranks with people,mockinq them intentionally.
“am just kidding” came her reply as she continued, ” common na babe,you had promised you would be present at the party and dont promise and fail now o”, She beqqed.
“okay okay, whatever!!,i’ll try to come,but i would be late o” i tried assurinq tolu,who always loved takinq me out to parties wherever and whenever.
” thats my qirl, and dont forqet to brinq your boyfriend o” tolu said aqain teasinqly.
Seriously,that qirl had qone nuts,she wasnt iqnorant of how i felt about boys but she always had a joke to play,mockinq me every bit.
“what kind i joke is that?” i asked, feiqninq anqer, “you better stop it o,i dont like it,infact am not cominq to that party aqain”, i responded tryinq to draw out pity, but it even increased my situation as she teased me the more.
“eyah, i was even thinkinq of arranqinq one handsome dude for you here” she said, which really made me mad.
Honestly,that qirls tonque really needed spankinq at that moment.
“it seems u have credit to burn this afternoon bah?” i asked, as tolu continued in her infectious lauqhter. I hissed as i cut the call.
I really didnt have to qo to the party,but somethinq compelled me to-. I took a quick shower in my bathroom as i qot ready to qo to the party, cauqht totally unawares, of what i would face there.
