Mr and Mrs Santos, they love her so much being
their only child. She attends hiddenville day and
boarding school and in grade 2 at the age of 16,
she is brilliant and always come out first in her
class. Lucia is a gentle and well trained girl, she
has two friends Vivian and Betty. In school they
are called the three monskaters because they
were always together. They attend the same
school, in the same class and also in the same
dormitory. The three friends sat in the class
during lunch break one afternoon, Lucia was
reading while Betty and Vivian were eating fruits.
“Hey Lucy, do you want some?” Betty asked
“No thanks.” Lucia said.
“Lucy, will you go to the party the senior
students are hosting with us?” Vivian asked.
“You guys can go but am not going.” Lucia said.
“Common, it’s gonna be fun, so many guys will
be there, pls go with us.” Betty pleaded.
“No, I don’t want to, I will rather stay up all night
reading my books instead of going to some
crazy party.” Lucia said
“Hmm, bookworm dats why you don’t have a
boyfriend, how can you have a boyfriend wen all
you know how to do is read, you don’t go out to
have fun.” Vivian said
“I never said am searching for a boyfriend, okay.”
“Fine don’t go, we’ll go alone.” Vivian said.
The lunch break was over and the students
returned to their various sit including Betty and
Vivian. The English teacher came in and gave
them some exercise to work on. After some hour
the closing bell was rang and the students packed
their stuffs and left the class.
When it was Abt 8:pm, Betty and Vivian began
dressing up for the party while Lucia was reading
a novel. They finished preparing and were about
to leave. “Lucy are you sure you don’t wanna
come with us?” Betty asked.
“No am not coming, have fun but remember to
be careful out there and you mustn’t take
alcohol.” Lucia said
“Ok ma’am, we won’t.” Vivian said and they
walked out of the room.
“Come back early, okay.” Lucia shouted
The next morning, their classroom teacher
entered the class and a boy followed behind him,
he was tall and handsome with a sexy eyes and
lips. The class became noisy at the sight of him,
all the girls begin to murmur. Lucia stood up. ”
Class say ur greetings.” She said and the students
also stood up and they greeted the teacher.
“Take ur sits.” The teacher said and they all sat
“Here with me is a new member of our class,
introduce yourself to the class.” The teacher said
“Am Richard Carson Padilla, am a transferred
student.” He said and bowed a little.
“Alright, go and sit beside Lucy over there.” The
teacher pointed towards Lucy and he went to sit
beside Lucy. “Settle down, your teacher will be
here soon.” The classroom teacher said and left.
Lucia was busy solving some maths exercise,
she didn’t pay attention to Richard as he sat
beside her. He looked at her and saw that she
wasn’t staring at him like the other girls. “Hi
Lucy.” He said Lucia looked at him and he winked
at her, she ignored him and shift her attention
back to her book. The maths teacher came in and
the students greeted him. “Be sitted.” Mr Cash
The lesson begin and Mr Cash wrote some
exercise on the board, then he asked who can
solve them. Richard was the first to raise his hand
then Lucia also raised her hand. “You are the new
transferred student if am right?” Mr Cash asked
“Yes sir.” Richard said.
“Ok, come out let’s see what you’ve got.” The
teacher said. He walked over to the front and took
the marker from the teacher then he went over to
the board and started solving. He solved the first,
second and then the third one. The teacher was
impressed and he asked the class to applaud him.
“Lucy, it looks like you now have a rival.” Mr Cash
said and Richard smiled. Lucia saw him smiling
but she ignored him. He walked back to his desk
and was still smiling and looking at Lucia, she
noticed but she ignored him.
Throughout the lesson, Richard kept staring at
Lucia and smiling at the same time, she couldn’t
ignore him anymore and then she turned to him.
“Can you stop staring at me.” She said with a low
voice. It’s actually the first time Lucia took a close
look at him. They looked at each other eyeball to
eyeball, she couldn’t help but stare at him, he
smiled then Lucia got a chill down her spine, she
quickly stared away. “Hmm, sorry but you have
dust on your face that was why I was staring.”
Richard lied. Lucia wiped her face with her and
“Ok, solve this exercise the maths teacher said
and Lucy, you and Richard should bring the
books to my office after lunch.” Mr Cash said and
left. Lucia glared at Richard and he smiled.
