New beginning

″Alright I think it’s getting a bit late so I think we need to be going before your dad get’s mad again.″said Dave looking in the night sky while I cuddled in his arms.

We were laying down together on the grass next to the pond while the moon was shining on us.Dave looked so peaceful and calm. He turned to me and gave me a cute and genuine smile. I really loved this moment but I didn’t want my dad to get angry. ″Are we still going back to the party? I said while yawning. I was really tired and I really needed to sleep.

″Of course not, let me just drop you off at your house.″ he said as if he didn’t want us to leave at all. ″Alright handsome, let’s start going before he comes with an army.″ We both laughed and got up to go to his car.

We were on the road already and were on our way. All of a sudden, we hit something or someone.We immediately got down and I was shocked to see who it was. ″MOYO! what the heck are you doing here? He couldn’t talk cause the car broke one of his legs and he was screaming in pain. I used to think stuff guys don’t cry but this tough guy was definitely crying. His eyes were red and he kept screaming and yelling for attention. Dave and I carried him up to the car. Gosh he is heavy. We put him to lay back at the back seat and we rushed quickly to the nearest hospital. We finally arrived and we went to reception. Dave explained to her what had happened and she got us a nurse with immediate effect. The nurses came and took him away. We stood together and held on tight to each other.

″So...you two a couple or something? said the lady. We both blushed at the same time , turned to each other and back to her and said,″ Yes!″

An hour later.

A doctor came to meet. So we both stood at the same time and he spoke to us saying,″Well, luckily no serious injuries though and it was just his leg. Thank you so much for bringing him.″ I decided to ask when he will be released and he said today. ″Alright you can go.″ said the doctor. He took us his ward and Moyo was with clutches. Dave decided to help him and I paid for his bills.

We later got on the rode again and we arrived at his house as we dropped him off. We escorted him to his front door. I was then curious and asked him why he was out so late. He bent his head down and told us what had happened to him. He went for a gambling game and lost to it. He then left out of frustration and went to a bar to drink. He was drunk, so he didn’t really know where he was going until you know we bumped into him.

He then turned to just me and asked,″After everything I did to you, your’e still nice to me. why? I then spoke saying,″ My dad always told Kane and I to always help people. Even if they were our enemies or foes. That’s just the way we do it in Africa. It’s the African way.″ Dave smiled at me and said,″And yet you wonder why I chose you to be my girlfriend.″ I blushed at his compliment and Moyo interrupted us by saying,″I’m sorry for all the mean things I did to you.Could you ever forgive?

There was silence but I broke it by saying,″Of course.

He was happy and came close to me to hug until he was interrupted with a large muscular hand. ″Okay,that’s enough. Let’s go Jay.″ I laughed out loud and said,″ Okay. See you around Moyo.″

One year later.

It was March and I was in my final year already.We would also soon be having the playoffs soon. Coach had always made us to practice hard every time especially making it hard for me since she thinks I will be able to win MVP this year. But the one person who always made me happy during my practice was Dave. Since he played soccer for the school team, we were always together. The whole school had know us as the sport couple which I actual felt was pretty cool.

After our practice every time, we would go to the pond side and stay there. I really enjoyed having him around. Even my parents liked him too. Ever since that night with Moyo, I decided for him to meet my family. Of course they were not happy seeing me coming home late but once we explained and they understood fully. I broke the news to them that we were dating and they were actually happy for me and proud that I moved on. My dad even had a talk session once or twice and always gave him a warning that if he dared broke my heart, he would take him to Area 51. Yeah, I was shocked that place actual exists.

Now back to the playoffs. It was around the corner and so was prom. I wasn’t really sure that Dave would ask but Shekah told me that he would. Speaking of my friends, they became a thing and I really expected it since they were always together. Any who, Dave promised he would come for all my games and support me.How sweet of him.

It was time for lunch, I didn’t see Dave yet. I was really worried cause I had not seen him all day. Eric told me not worry. ″Don’t worry Jay he will soon turn up.″ saying with a reassuring voice as his arm was over Shekah’s shoulder. Shekah was eating a sandwich and spoke to me saying,″ Yeah he will, right about...″

Eric completed her sentence saying,″Now″ I was confused but I noticed all the attention went to behind me. The whole cafeteria was silent until a song started playing.

We go together

I immediately knew the song. It was Sucker by the Jonas Brothers. How did he know this was my best song. Oh yeah, he's my boyfriend. I facepalmed myself. Dave came out and continued singing the song.

Better than birds of a feather, you and me
We change the weather, yeah
I’m feeling heat in December when you’re ’round me

I’ve been dancing on top of cars and stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark, can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain, the tattoo inside my brain
And, baby, you know it’s obvious

I really loved this song cause it was like us and how we both crazy for each other. I started blushing as he came close to me. He pulled me to dance with him. I know I don't really like dancing but in this situation I really didn't care.

I’m a sucker for you
You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take, you know that you’ll find me
I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you) about you (about you)
And you’re making the typical me break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you, yeah

Don’t complicate it (yeah)
’Cause I know you and you know everything about me
I can’t remember
All of the nights I don’t remember
When you’re ’round me (oh, yeah yeah)

I’ve been dancing on top of cars and stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark, can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain, the tattoo inside my brain
And, baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take, you know that you’ll find me
I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you) about you (about you)
And you’re making the typical me break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you, yeah

I’ve been dancing on top of cars and stumbling out of bars
I follow you through the dark, can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain, the tattoo inside my brain
And, baby, you know it’s obvious

We stopped dancing and sang the last part of the song. I sat down as I saw him singing it.

I’m a sucker for you
You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take, you know that you’ll find me
I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (about you) about you (about you)
And you’re making the typical me break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you
I’m a sucker for you

''Janet Smith, I'm a sucker for you and I would like for you to be my date to the prom? Would you, please? he said with one knee and holding my hand.

Out of excitement, I said yes immediately and he carried me up.

He dropped me down and we kissed. But this was a passionate one. Once we broke it, the whole cafeteria clapped for us. My friends came too and hugged me. ''So you guys knew about this?'' I said with a pouted face. ''He wanted it as a surprise. So he told just us cause you know we're your friends.'' I hugged them and thanked them. I really love my friends.

''I really hope my boyfriend asks me like that.'' Shekah said looking at Eric. ''Well soon babe.Soon.'' spoke Eric with a nervous laugh while scratching his head.

I'm so glad for what has happened and what remains now is the playoffs.
