She was just a teen like me, but she had a nice figure tho she was slim.
I went to sit on the bed, just staring at her face with her eyes closed. I kept passing my thumb over her eye brow as I stared at her. She’s beautiful, I smiled…

She stayed for a while and had to get her something to eat. We ate together and came back to take pictures. I took nice shots of her; it was a nice experience.
Soon she had to go. I still hadn’t done anything silly. Maybe because I’m scared or maybe because I really felt it was the first time so I should be a good boy, Let’s assume it’s the latter.
She finally said her good byes to my family, we stepped out of the house. I tried to hold her hand and she just pulled her hand. Well… that was a message, I got the message clearly. The message was: If you couldn’t hold my hands indoors, stop trying to act manly by holding it outdoor.
I didn’t ask any questions, I didn’t complain, I just walked with her normally, patiently awaiting the next meeting. I assumed she wouldn’t want me being silly but I was wrong. She liked me and she probably wanted me to take some risks.

We were all studying for our final exams. I was studying too, I wasn’t gonna fail just because I won a girl’s heart, no!
I realized Naana wasn’t really studying. I talked to her about it but she did not admit it.
“Jeff I am trying my best. I just don’t get the thing some times” she said
“But you came here with good grades, and you were a shark back in JHS what’s happening?” I asked worriedly
“I don’t know, maybe there’s a lot on my mind”
“A lot on your mind?” I asked
“Is it because of me?” I added
“No, I just worry a lot these days.” she replied
“See, you have to sit up and learn. You are not serious, that’s all. Sit up and learn” I sternly said
She didn’t talk. I just walked away. That evening when I got home, I didn’t receive a call from her. I decided to call her.
– “Hello Jeff”
– “Hi, are you home?” I asked
– “And you never called?” I asked surprisingly
– “Yes” short reply
– “Why what’s wrong?”
– “Nothing” she replied shortly again
Wow, I was really getting worried. I tried to get her to open up.
– “Hey talk to me, what is the matter”
Then she started sobbing.
– “How could you tell me I’m not serious? Do you know the effort I put into studying? Things have been tough for me. You know me, and for you to just bluntly tell me I’m not serious… well that really hurt. I don’t even know what I feel for you right now because all I feel is pain…”
