SWEET TORTURE 4, 5 by Godsmercy smart
Edwin’s POV continues
I think I’ve lost my appetite. I sprung from my seat and strolled out. I think I have fever and a slight
headache. But why do I feel guilty? I hope I’m not feeling this way because of that dumb ass. She
deserved the treatment she got from me . I kept talking to myself until I reached the parking lot.
Then I spotted someone crying. It was Delia. Immediately she saw me she mounted her bicycle
and she was gone. I somewhat had the urge to apologize to her but she’s gone already. I’ve
changed my mind. A person of my status cannot apologize to such a low life with a misplaced
priority, but why was she crying? Why was she going, break is over; she suppose to be in class.
So why are you here, aren’t you supposed to be in class as well or do you really have fever? My
sub conscience questioned. I simply nodded to my self defeated as I slide into my car and drove
off. I think I’m like this because of that dumb bitch. I need to calm my nerves at home.
I didn’t know why but I just started crying when Fleur left for class. I had told her I have a little
headache and needed to go home, I felt so embarrassed when he came in on me sniffing and
cleaning my eyes. Damn me and my sensitive feelings. So once I sighted that monster from my
bicycle mirror, I mounted my beloved bicycle and left.
I got home, lucky enough for me my Dad wasn’t home so I won’t have to answer questions. I
ascended the stairs to my room. Thank God I’ve already had lunch. I took two aspirin tablets from
the drawer and gulped down with water. That should handle the headache.
I stripped out of my school uniform and lay down heavily on the bed with only my pant and bra. I
was too tired to freshen up. Yah scold me if you like. I dragged my thought to what happened in
school. Its high time I concentrated on my studies and forget about that genius monster. I thought.
I didn’t even tell you that my chances of staying in this school is very low because of my poor
performance. I must be better. With a heavy sigh, I drifted off to sleep
Delia’s POV continues
3 hours Later
I woke up feeling much better. Good! that aspirin has done a good job. I freshened up, wore my
blue crop top and a pink trouser, put on my pink slippers and hailed a cab to dad’s restaurant. I
paid the cab man and went inside. I waved at my Dad who was busy serving and went straight to
“Hey Katya” I said to the cook on duty. She only responded with a nod and smiled. Katya is a
woman in her mid fifties, she’s a Russian and has been working for my Dad for more than ten
“Is there something to eat? I’m dead beat”
” yup…please serve yourself Delia ” she retorted with heavy Russian accent still giving me that
smile. I served myself and next moment I was done.
“Thanks Katya” I said satisfactorily.
” Don’t mention it dear” she responded sharply .
Soon it was closing time, my Dad and I washed the few dishes that was left. There was an
awkward silence in the room. A million thoughts was just rushing in my head. My Dad must have
noticed a change in my mood because he asked
” Delia are you all right ?”
” sure Dad” I replied with a nod.
Then he began
” Your principal called today”
Oh God…take my soul. The love letter mess has got to my Dad. I’m so dead right now, my Dad
will be so disappointed in me. This is not a girl he’s laboured to raise all these years.
” uhmm…Dad..about- I stuttered and he cut me off
” so he complained that you’re doing very badly in school especially in mathematics and English
studies. He said your written grammar is very poor. I’m still wondering why you should have a
problem with your own language Delia. He said you may not graduate with the pace you’re going”
he paused and studied my face.
Damn it! This man doesn’t know how excited I am right now. Though its a bad news but it isn’t as
bad as that love letter mess would have been.
” Dad I’ve been trying but my dull brain doesn’t allow it to work but I really want to go to school” I
pouted trying to hide my excitement.
” yea I know and im totally on your side but please don’t say you’re dull. You should know that i
love you so much and want the best for you. School may completely not be your thing so if you
find it difficult to deal with, you should consider learning a trade. You and I know that I can’t afford
that school, if the scholarship is withdrawn, you’re out. You have to work harder to make your Dad
proud sweetheart ”
All this while I’ve been staring at the zinc. I felt really bad. I looked up to him and protested mildly.
” Dad I promise to be better for my future and for you!” I made a military like bow and we burst out
laughing loudly. He may laugh but I know he’s damn serious. He hugged me tightly and kissed my
forehead repeatedly. Soon we closed the doors and the windows and strolled down the street
looking for the next available cab to go home.
