Let’s Play Hard (Episode 4)
Jennifer hurried to the hall where she is to attend her other lecture and saw Joy who beckoned on her to where she sat, “so how was it? Joy asked when Jennifer settled down beside her.
“It wasn’t too bad, I was just asked to tidy up some apparatus there, Jenny replied.
“So miss…….. “Jennifer rather, Jenny cuts in.
“Sorry Jennifer, your action was quite funny, I mean you’re barely 2 days here and you’ve put up quite a show and already insulted our icon. What were you thinking? A guy asked sitting next to her.
“Well I am so sorry I didn’t realise he was your Darling icon, but I think an icon to me should be friendly, loving and………. “What gives you the mentality that he isn’t? Some group of student shouted interrupting her.
“That was what he proved to me and I know you know the truth also but you’re just blinded with his looks whatever. So what are you guys gonna do? Beat me up huh? Jennifer angrily asked.
“Are you this tough or trying to be one? Will you stand the heat or do you need an eye pick? One guy asked coming from behind approaching Jennifer.
“Oh please pardon her, I’ll say it was an act of ignorance and she wasn’t aware. Can we just pardon her for today? I am very sure it won’t repeat itself again, Joy came in getting on her feet.
“stay out of this, if she wants to prove tough then we’ll show her the stuff we are made of, The guy said and Jenny smiled.
“I can’t believe you’re fighting for a guy your different girlfriends are crushing on. So you’ll know, at any opportunity they have they wish they will hold him tight in their bosom, so pathetic, Jennifer said and they gasped looking among themselves.
“You all need apologies right? Fine I’m sorry, it won’t happen again okay, Jennifer continued and removed her headphones and put it on while they just looked at her not knowing what to say………………….
Theodore checked his time and saw he was running late for his lecture, “shit! He said returning his experiment back and hurried out of the laboratory.
“Hello handsome, rushing somewhere? Natasha asked stopping him.
“What do you want? He asked.
“We can’t greet friendly again or what? Common Theo don’t be this way always, She said.
“After what you did? I mean what was that for? What image were you trying to create huh! Theo shouted.
“Calm down its not what you’re thinking, she said.
“Then tell me what I and the whole students are thinking. That was an embarrassing moment and all you could do was post it on Instagram to put shame on my face or what? He asked.
“It was just for fun darling, anyway who is that girl? She asked.
“Get out of my sight! Theo said and walked away.
“I’m sorry okay, I’ll get it deleted right away, Natasha said but he didn’t look back………………
Done with Lectures, Jenny and Joy walked out of the building together, “it was really a long day today, Jenny said.
“Yea it was, please what happened back there wasn’t a joke. you need to be careful Jennifer, you just came and you’re already shaking foundations, Joy replied and she rolled her eyes.
“What do you want me to do? Keep shut and swallow their rubbish? Look I am no novice, I was suppose to be in my finals and here i am starting all over again. I am no ordinary fresher, I’ve been in this system before and nothing is new to me, just relax okay I’m cool, Jenny said touching her shoulder while Joy looked at her surprised.
“What happened? I mean why did you leave? Joy asked.
“Nah I don’t want to dig it out, see ya tomorrow, Jenny said waving at her and walked away.
She stopped at an ice cream stand and requested for a strawberry flavour, “thank you, she said paying the man and walked away with her ice cream..
Going a few mile away from the ice cream stand she saw some group of ladies approached her with a stern look.
That wasn’t her business as she enjoyably licked her ice cream and wanted passing them but one of the girls dragged her back making the ice cream fall from her hand.
“Excuse me, what’s that for? Jennifer asked.
“That’s for passing us like we were not noticed. I saw your little show on the first day you arrived school, what a bold fresher you must be, Natasha replied and Jenny scoffed.
“Are everyone this jobless and gullible here? I mean what’s so important about my show? With the popularity I am getting from it I think I should do more of it often, what do You think? Jenny asked.
“Don’t be stupid, I won’t bloody care if it was done with another person but stay clear from Theodore, take your joke far from him, Natasha said and She smiled.
“With that jerk? Don’t worry I will gladly stay clear from him, in fact I can’t imagine my self with such a being. I can’t believe I lost my sweet ice cream for some nonsense talk and let this be the first and last time you will do this, Excuse me, Jennifer said and walked away while the girls looked at themselves surprised.
“what are we going to do with her? One of them asked.
“Let her be for now and let’s watch her fly more wings, Natacha replied looking at Jennifer……………….
Jennifer arrived home and met her roommates with a packet of Pizza, “you look tired what’s wrong? Annabel asked.
“Girls your school is just filled with mad people, Jenny replied taking a slice of it.
“Wait, so you mean to say we are equally mad? Treasure asked and Jennifer laughed.
“That’s not what I mean, she replied.
“Lest I forget, I saw you on a video today. Why didn’t you tell us you encountered such an ordeal with Theodore yesterday? Annabel asked and Jenny sighed lying on the bed with her eyes tightly closed.
“Jennifer I am talking to you, Annabel called out again and Jenny opened her eyes.
“What should I say and what should i do now? Isn’t it great, Jennifer Mark is popular and trending on Instagram barely 2 days of her stay in school. Girls please i am so tired, she said getting up to the fridge to get a chill water to drink.
“I can’t believe this. Stop stirring this wave Jennifer, it won’t be good, Treasure said.
“No matter the wave, Jennifer is strong to sail through, join in her spirit too so You won’t crash, Jenny replied smiling.
“That wasn’t funny Jenny, we are damn serious here, Treasure said but Jennifer was less concerned……………….
The next day the lecture was to be held in different classroom Jennifer couldn’t locate,
“Excuse me, where is room Sc4 please? She stopped someone.
“Go straight and make a left turn, the guy replied.
“Thank you, Jennifer said and left and the guy laughed at her together with his friends.
She got there and noticed there were no classrooms but offices, “shit did I lost the way or something? She asked herself confused and she saw Theodore coming out from one of the rooms.
She removed her gaze from him with a worried look as she stood wondering if to go back or not,
“And what is she doing here? Theodore asked with his hand placed on the wall looking at her.
“I think I’ve lost my way, I was actually looking for Room Sc4 and i was directed here, she replied immediately and he smiled.
“When you act tough make sure you’re also not ignorant so you won’t be made a fool. Such a room isn’t here, you passed it already, he replied and her eyes bulged out.
“What! She shouted.
“Excuse me, Theo said and was about to walk away.
“But where can i find it please? You can’t just leave me here stranded, Jenny said.
“Last i checked I don’t know you and i don’t know why i should help a brat like you or why you should need help from a guy with a miserable character. Why not go back to whoever gave you this direction, he said with a smirk and walked away while Jennifer stood angrily breathing hard.
“I hate you! She said under her breath.
