( I think I will love maths)
He gave me a warm hug, my heart almost jump out of my chest I felt my legs shaking,
The rain stop after a while, I couldn’t move or do anything. David waved at me but I’m too carried away to do anything.
“ hello? Is the cold affecting your brain” he smiled and if not for my combined strength I would have faint.
“ let’s go na” he said and when I find my voice okay was all i can say.
I waved goodbye at him when we reach their flat and I have to walk to ours but all he does is nod his head. I think this guy is a lizard in his first life.
I live with my parents with no siblings at all you may think I’m spoilt but no my parents are strict. They believe I’m the only one they have so they have to give me the best.
David have a younger brother Sammy.
Sammy is a jovial boy and we were best friends. He know I like his brother so he will always report which girl his brother is seeing and what they discussed together lol I have an informant. Unlike david he is not cold or arrogant or something, even though I’m older than him and we play together he doesn’t see that as a way to disrespect me at all.
After eating my lunch which is always a bowl of garri or cornflakes I took my phone to facebook before i start reading and luckily david is also online. I send him an hi but he didn’t reply me.
I just log out switch off my phone when he didn’t reply me.
No matter how I study maths I just can’t understand it. When will I be looking someone’s X when I don’t know Y? I swear math is complicated. My love for maths ended when they started adding letters.
When I couldn’t find the X I just close my text book and note book and I use it as a pillow.
Oh my I slept for three hours? The maths teacher will blast hell out of my head tomorrow so let me just do wuru wuru to the answer he cannot kill me abeg.
The next day david did not even wait for me so I have to walk to
As expected the maths teacher really freak out whatever who he epp? Freaking out as if math is the only subject in the world But I hate other students laughing at me especially that witch named Isabella who is trying to get closer to david at all cost. I wonder what they use to do together in physics and chemistry class sef when I’m not there or should I switch to science class? Oh I like arts better at least I won’t be calculating all the time. I don’t have to worry sef I got janelle watching my Dave for me. Ring ring
We are going home again! Yeah! No maths assignment only literature and English assignments.
“ if you want I can help you in your maths” a voice which even if I’m in a trance or something I will recognise it said behind me. You might want to know who I’m talking about its no one but my Dave..
Math is bringing david and i together i think i will love maths.Kindly share out stories from topsterstories.com using the floating social media icon buttons on the bottom of the screen
I’m also brilliant its just that we use it in different ways
Thank you maths you are bringing me and dave together.
“ really?” I asked to confirm.
“ yes I can give you a hand you know. Its embarrassing
watching you get insulted by the teacher ” Although we’ve known each other for too long but this is the longest sentence he have ever said to me. I’m so happy.
“ wait for me I have to do something in the lab” he said.
Okay was all I could say.
There was no rain but I wish there is so he can hug me again. I have to do my literature and English assignment first before I go for my maths lesson from the best maths teacher in the world.
“ oh nikky you look so happy” janelle said dragging me aside when I was waiting for David to come out of the lab.
“ hey I’m always happy” I hit her playfully.
“ but not like this did something happen between you and David? ” she asked.
“ yes but you don’t have to know unless you gist me about your one sided love ” I replied making a mocking face.
“ seriously I can’t believe this my friend is now keeping secrets from me bah? I want to cry. Crying crying crying”
“ seriously this your crying stuff won’t work with me today” I smiled and I know that will provoke her lol don’t mind Janelle…..
she is my one and only town crier she can cry for Africa I think she was a mermaid in her first life but it is a pity her tears won’t turn to pearls.
“ I’m sorry I kept you waiting ” I heard David’s voice behind me.
Wow how can the world get brighter whenever he appear?
“ bye Janelle ” “ bye”
“ how can she leave when we have so much to discuss that girl and her manners” she thought I won’t hear but I hear though
“ what’s with you today? Nikky you look so you know happy”
Sammy too? Seriously why is everyone asking me that? Its not as if its obvious.
After lunch and my literature in English assignment I quickly rush to David’s house its the same house though.
“ Sammy is your brother home?” I ask Sammy who was doing his assignment outside.
“ yep he is waiting for you” he said with a smile.
Seriously? David wait for me? Am I in a trance or something?
“ you are late” his voice brought me back from my little world of imagination.
“ I was doing my literature in English assignment ” I replied dropping my text book and note book on the table.
He start with quadratic equation, 2x² 9x 6
“ what is x?” he asked
“ x is a letter” I replied and he look at me with that kind of are you kidding me? eyes
“ oh okay I don’t know” I replied feeling irritated did he have to
look down on me like this? I’m also brilliant its just that we use it in a different way.
“ then let’s find x” he said and he started writing ways of solving quadratic equation.
The factorization method, completing the square method, formula method and graph method. Wow he look so cute while solving maths.
Ah that was an heart attack, no one have ever confessed to me before…
