“Pascal what’s wrong with you?” Jennifer worriedly asked
“nothing” he said still not wanting to raise his head.
“No don’t tell me it’s nothing because I know something is wrong. For Christ sake you look so disturbed, just go ahead and tell me what’s it” “and I said I’m fine, I just want to be on my own, thank you for your concern”
“alright if you say so but don’t forget that I’m always ready to extend a helping hand to you” she smilingly said as she disappointedly left.
Anastasia was very lucky to be provided with all the requirements needed for her schooling including textbooks and a dictionary.
Pascal’s test exercise book was torn and his gum had been exhausted. He is not the kind of person that goes around and beg people for something, he hated it with passion and as a result he deliberately passed the book like that, knowing fully well that the teacher will not mark it. When the teacher saw the book, she sent for Pascal who came and collected it.
Where would he see gum? he can’t possibly start moving from seat to seat begging for gum.
It would be a kind of belittling himself and he don’t want that. If only he knew who has it in particular, he would just go directly to that person and not moving from place to place.
“George can I have your gum?”
” my own just finished ”
“oh God! where can I get a gum right now because if I fail to amend this book and pass it today that woman will never mark this test again”
“which woman is that?” George asked.
“It’s the agricultural teacher”
” hmm,that wicked teacher? you’re really in trouble and… ehee! why don’t you go to that nonsense MISS KNOW ALL? I think I saw her with a gum few minutes ago.
“you mean Anastasia? “Pascal inquired
” of course who else would I be talking about? ”
“and why did you call her nonsense?”
“I don’t like that girl even one bit,she disgust me”
“and why if I may ask” Pascal pondered.
“Pascal you’re talking as if you don’t know what I mean, this girl thinks she knows better than us”
“is that all? I don’t even see anything wrong with her knowing more than us”
“This one you’re talking like this, wait ooo, Pascal I can’t remember knowing you with this cool side of yours which you displayed today, it’s unlike you. You’ve been acting strange”
“and what do you mean by that?”
“Pascal for crying out loud this girl really pushed you hard today. She even had the gut to say to your face that you don’t know what she is capable of doing. I knew you as someone who doesn’t take shit from girls like her but instead of treating her fuck up,you kept quiet and bent over your locker”
“then what are you insinuating?” Pascal asked.
“You should know better than me” George retorted
“are you sick or something?I will advise you to rest or better still take a nap” Pascal jokingly said
“and did you say she has a gum?” Pascal asked
“and how do you expect a sick person to answer your question? why are my even wasting my energy and besides my radio doesn’t speak twice”
“silly boy,you’re really sick in the head” Pascal smilingly said and walked away. All he knew was that he was walking but he doesn’t know where his feet were taking him to. Anastasia was amused by the boy’s braggings
“They are are talking of exams as if they had been taking exams for a very long time. This is just second term, they only took exam in this school last term been first term. Just because I was unable to join them in first term and they think they can intimidate me? no way! She was still in her thought when she noticed someone standing in front of her locker. She slowly raised her head and was surprised to see Pascal standing before her. As soon he walked towards Anastasia’s locker,all eyes followed him especially that of Jennifer and Angel. What’s he going there to do? they thought. ”
please do you have a water gum? “Pascal awkwardly asked Anastasia who was eager to know his mission.
Not wanting to look at him, she nodded. She opened her locker, brought out the gum and gave it to him as she tries to avoid eye contact with him.”
Thank you “Pascal said to her as he collected the gum and went to his seat.After some minutes he returned it back. When the school dismissed, Anastasia left with those twins; Emmanuel and Emmanuela.
On their way home they discussed about the things that happened at school that day. Been her first time in secondary school JSS1 ,Anastasia talked about how hard it was for her to adapt to the system used in secondary school.
At first she could not understand the interval ringing of bell but as time went on she came to understand that it was meant for changing of lesson. Their discussion was still going on when she heard familiar voices behind her.
She turned to see Pascal and George. Are they taking the same path with them? but before she could knew it, the two boys separated. Pascal took another path that leads to the main road while George continued on the same path with them. As soon as Anastasia got to her place, she bade farewell to her friends who then continued with George.
It’s always good for parents to lay a good and solid moral foundation for their children, so that they would not be easily influenced by bad peers. Pokuti Gloria and her friend Cynthia were so corrupt that they would always discuss about immoral things,they talked about how to get rid of pregnancy.
Whenever they start their discussion, Anastasia would always pay deaf ear to them. They so much wanted to influence and lure her but she was too smart and experienced though she appears to be gentle.
At puberty most teenagers normally go crazy about the changes in their body. Boys would start forming big boys and girls will be like I’M NOW A BIG CHICK. One day puberty was treated as a topic under Home economics.
Believe me, students are always happy when such topics that has to do with human body are been taught. As the teaching was going on, there was a competition of shyness among the students who kept smiling at themselves.
After lunch, it was a siesta period as everyone was busy sleeping but pokuti Gloria and Cynthia started discussing about puberty and it’s characteristics. At a point they began touching and pressing their breast.
Anastasia was not sleeping so she was hearing all they were saying. She never wanted to interfere or interrupt their business but she was forced to talk when Gloria touched her breast.
She was quickly overwhelmed by anger “and what do you think you’re doing?”
“I want to see the size of your breast” ”
why” Anastasia queried.
“Nothing I just want to check something” Gloria replied as she wanted to undo the button of Anastasia’s uniform.
Anastasia quickly held her hand and glared at her “Don’t you even think of trying such rubbish with me. Two of you can go on and press yourselves but if you try it again with me, you would leave me with no other option than to expose and report you” Anastasia seriously warned Gloria who became very disappointed. This was not what she had expected. From that day onwards, it dawned on Gloria that Anastasia would never cooperate with them so they kept their distance from her.
Three girls were bearing the name Gloria in that class; the fat Gloria, the small Gloria and the corrupt Gloria(pokuti Gloria).
Not wanting to stay with them any longer, Anastasia started looking for how to stay away from them. Luckily for her, she secured a position at the middle of the class where she sat with small Gloria.
All the teachers learned to like Anastasia because she was a good, intelligent,obedient, humble and respectful child.
They indirectly started to prefer her of Pascal. Pascal has a good handwriting so he copies notes for the teachers on the board.
One day, a teacher sent for him. He was the prefect and he knew why the teacher was calling him, he started sulking and murmuring. He did not want to copy the note on the. It makes him to write his own when others have finished writing theirs and he don’t want that anymore.
He entered into the staffroom putting on a swollen face which indicates that he was not happy.
Apart from parents no other person understands a students more than their teachers. As soon as the teacher saw him, she quickly got the message and she immediately stood up from her seat and said to Pascal “It’s okay, you don’t have to bother yourself anymore, you can go back”.
At times it’s always good to show people who thinks you can’t do without them,that they are nothing.
That as soon as they vacate or reject their position that someone else is ever ready to take up that same position. The teacher entered into the classroom and asked Anastasia to come and copy the note on the board.
The students were so surprised at the latest development. How come the teacher called Anastasia, the new comer instead of Pascal their prefect?

Clash Of Desires: Episode One
She entered into the school premises with her locker,chair, school bag and other basic requirements that were asked of her by the school authorities. With the help of a teacher, she was shown to her classroom and she went in and kept her belongings.
As soon as she got into the classroom,she was warmly welcomed by the students especially the girls who seemed so much happy to have a new comer in their class. Though Anastasia was not always at ease to communicate with strangers but she managed to smile at the girls who were fighting over her things in order to help her.
Among all the students in her class, she only knew three people. Two were a male and a female twins, she had known them right from her primary school days and they they also happened to be her childhood friends. The third person was a boy,she tried to recall where she had seen him before.
It was him, she had seen him on several occasions in her primary school. They schooled at the same primary school, they were both primary 6 pupils but stays in different class. It was a government primary school so the pupils don’t easily recognise their fellow pupil except when they are in the same class. He normally comes into her own class in search of his friend. What a small world she thought.
Though she did not know his name but that was not a problem as she instantly realized that he was a public figure. Everyone knows him and wants to be close with him. He was smart, sharp, intelligent and very handsome. He was loved by both the teachers and his classmates.
His name was Pascal Dennis!
Anastasia Adams who just came into the school was extremely intelligent as well. In her class she noticed that two boys precisely were held in high esteem; Pascal Dennis and his friend George Williams.
They were very intelligent and no one ever dares to challenge them in their class.
Pascal was the class prefect while George was his assistant. Anastasia also noticed how the girls in her class pestered around Pascal but it was none of her business so she waved it aside. There wasn’t much space left in the class so Anastasia end up securing herself a position at the back.
She sat with two girls, one was a calabar girl named Pokuti Gloria and the other girl was named Cynthia.
Cynthia did not have a locker or seat so she begged Anastasia to join her own seat with that of Gloria so that the seat could contain the three of them. Anastasia agreed,she joined her seat with that Gloria and the three of them sat very closely next to each other.
Fortunately for Anastasia, that day she came happened to be the first day of their test. Their form teacher happened to be their English teacher. She was greeted as soon as she entered into the classroom and after that she wrote the test on the board. Mrs Josephine was a very funny woman and was also very friendly with the students.
She was a fair and a short rounded woman that wears an afro hair cut which she always polishes with dye. When she was marking the test,she marveled.
Someone just broke the record. First in history that someone got higher mark than Pascal. The test was over 10 and Pascal got 8 while the other members I the class got below 6 except for George who got 6.
At first Mrs Josephine that Pascal had the highest mark but then she saw an unknown writing which she had not seen before. It was very clear and clean. The writer got all the answers correctly. Who could this be?she thought. She was forced to look at the back of the book in order to see the owners’ name.
“Who is Anastasia Adams? she asked as her wide opened eyes were scanning through the class. The quiet and gentle Anastasia stood up and faced Mrs Josephine. By now all the students were anxious to know why their form teacher called the new comer.
Has she done anything wrong?
” are you Anastasia Adams? “Mrs Josephine asked Anastasia who was not comfortable with the way her classmates were looking at her.”
Yes teacher “she answered.”
Hmm you must be very intelligent, you may sit down my dear, you’re welcome “she said and turned to Pascal and his friend” Pascal it seems someone who will give you and your friend tough time has finally arrived “. Pascal disbelievingly nodded in a manner that shows Who Do She Think She Is?
During their CRS lesson, Mrs Josephine who was also their CRS teacher arrived. The students seemed so happy whenever she enters into the classroom because she was funny and always tells them a lot of stories. So they enjoyed been with her. Throughout the lesson, most of her questions were smartly answered by Anastasia and she was so much impressed.
It got to a point that said” just sit back, close your mouth and watch someone who came today to overtake all of you “referring to Pascal. Pascal was slightly angered but his eyes never left Anastasia.
He and his friend followed all her movement and they monitored every single thing she does. The girls in her class became jealous of her because she knows more than them. During break period, Anastasia wanted to leave the class in order to buy something. Pascal sits at the first position beside the entrance of the class and as a result, anyone that goes out or comes into the class must pass by Pascal. Pascal and George were discussing when they sighted Anastasia coming towards them,intending to pass by them. Pascal quickly called her.
Anastasia stopped by his locker, she raised up her head to see that all the girls in their class were looking at her.” What’s the matter? “she asked Pascal as she brought down her head.” How many marks did you score? “Pascal asked.” 10″ Anastasia replied. “10?” Pascal queried disbelievingly.”yes”
“Let me tell you, do you think that’s how our exams are? this test is a small thing, it’s very very easy. If you see our exams eeh you will run” George bragged.”me?run? what for? “Anastasia asked.” Because it will be very hard for you”George said.
“since you said that this test was easy, why did end up getting 6? why didn’t you get all of them?” “It was just a mistake” Pascal stepped in. “Just because you got 10 and that’s why your head is swelling” George retorted.
“Well, there is no need of you boasting about yourselves when you don’t know what others are capable of doing” she said to them and left to the canteen. Pascal could not believe it, this bitch dare walk out on me? who gave her the guts?he was so much angered that he bent his head on his locker and refused to talk to anybody not even his friend George. In no distant time, Jenifer, a tall,fair and beautiful girl walked towards his locker.
