Bathabile After Lwando and I had our morning talks I went to class and sat next to Liz as always. Lizzy:"Are you okay?" Me :"We will talk during break" I am a well concentrated B+ Student and I get my marks hard I have to study unlike some people who are gifted naturally. I have a dream of becoming a gynaecologist and opening my own office in our small town hopefully that can boost the economy of Bizana since it's not really recognised and who knows how many job opportunities I can create by doing something like that. And well which place to get the best education than UJ or Wits God knows I love that place. Well during the break Lizzy didn't forget about what I was supposed to tell her. Liz:"So what's up?" Me :"It's Lwando" Liz:"He hit you again?" I shook my head. Me:"No no he didn't Just that uhm we had sex " Her eyes widened Liz:"I thought we weren't going to have sex till we done with University " Me :"Yes I know but I hoped maybe if I have sex with him things might change" I looked at where he was standing and he was flirting with a girl from his class shocker I know but I'm used to it. Liz:"Him begging you to have sex with him doesn't mean you must give it to him you can't give a guy your virginity like you are dying " Me :"But he said it's the sugar to the coffee" She rolled her eyes and palmed her face I bit my lip. Liz:"This is bad and you know it" Me:"I fucked up real good but I still hope he will change" Liz:"Yeah keep hoping maybe it might help you live" I looked and Lwando again he had stopped flirting. I wish we were like other couples that spend time together during the breaks or after school. Him and I only spend time when he wants me at his place. Liz:"So now that you not a virgin anymore what will you tell our grandmother" I shrugged he had stopped flirting. I wish we were like other couples that spend time together during the breaks or after school. Him and I only spend time when he wants me at his place. Liz:"So now that you not a virgin anymore what will you tell our grandmother" I shrugged she usually checks us and she has been proud lately since we turned 18 still virgins. I didn't think it would be big of a deal seeing I am an adult now but she is my grandmother and she will make things turn sour. After school Lwando was waiting by the gate. Liz:"I'll walk behind you" I nodded.. Me:"Hey" Lwando :"Why do you look sad?" Me :"Just scared" Lwando:"Why?" Me :"My grandmother might find out I'm not a virgin anymore" Lwando:"So?It was bound to happen" I stopped walking and looked at him. Me :"As a boyfriend you not supposed to say that" Lwando:"What do you want me to say?" Me :"That you willing to pay any price for my virginity " Lwando :"Then you are dumber than I thought " He said that and walked to the opposite direction. What an insult. . . . Isabella I was hiding behind the benches but Melinda saw me clearly and she looked a bit scared Mel:"Nosihle stop with this madness" I cried while hiding from everyone. Nosihle just smiled and shoved her a little. Nosihle:"So the most famous nerd in this school has a crush on the schools hottest guy and here is a wishlist " She read it out loud I could hear laughter and comments like" Who does she think she is?" Some said" Graham don't do virgins" I hated Melinda for being so cruel she didn't even fight for me when the laughter died down she finally decided to come to me. Mel:"I didn't know she would do that" Me :"You didn't even stop her" I said lowly while still crying. Mel:"I am sorry baby maybe if you knew how to fight for yourself that wouldn't have happened " She inserted the list back in my pocket then leftI knew she wouldn't console me. After crying my heart out I stood up and looked around no one was looking at me I went to seat at the back of the class and read my favourite novel. I heard people giggling Nosihle showed up with Graham. Graham:"I will punish you for what you said" Nosihle :"But she deserved it" When she saw me laughed"Hey weirdo" Graham :"Is she the girl you made fun of?" Nosihle:"Duuh" Graham:"Get out of my face" Nosihle:"But baby" Graham:"Now " She clicked her tongue and left I could hear him get closer my heart was pounding out of my chest. He sat next to me and pulled my beanie of my head. He placed it on my lap Graham:"Hey I am sorry" Me:"It's not your fault " He laughed I looked at him but looked away as quickly as I looked at him. Graham:"It's just that your voice is so small it's kind of cute" Me:"Thank you " He kept quiet I looked at him he was reading the book. Graham:"Is this the first edition of Wuthering heights ?" Me :"Yes" Graham:"God these are life can you borrow me once you done reading it" I have never experienced him to be this chatty and he was making me nervous. As I have said I only witnessed him do tonsil hockey with girls not talking. Me:"I am reading it for the hundredth timehere" I handed him the book Graham:"Thank you" Me :"It's okay" I started packing my things I couldn't seat with him anymore he was making me sweat it wasn't helping that I wasn't under dressed. Graham:"I'll leave this is your spot anywaythank you for the book" He left I took another book and readGoodness He just spoke to me. I clutched my heart he spoke to me.
