How I fell in love with this guy at slt
It was a warm sunny day, the trees were green and fresh and the smell of sweet scenting flowers permeated the air...
Huh, if you're looking for something like that then you should stop reading like right now. I really don't know where writers get bullshit like that but quite honestly, I don't care. For one, I am definitely not a writer and I only started reading novels after my best girlie swore that Storm and Silence was the 'it' novel. Contrary to my previous pledges, I decided to give it a try. Found out novels could be quite fun. In any case, I'm only writing about my life at uni because I think my life is honestly soooo weird. Might be exaggerating but who knows? You might enjoy reading about my life.
Now at this point, you're probably wondering, who the heck is this? So not to vex you, let me do a quick introduction. My name is Victoria and though I have always insisted my friends call me Vicks for short, they've decided to call me Vicky instead so I have learnt to live with it. I am a 100L Microbiology student at the University of Ilorin, and just in case you're wondering, yes. I am the sort of stiff stuck up girl who spends all her time reading, at least I do whenever I'm not sleeping. Now you might want to calm down, don't stop reading just because you think I'll be boring. I think my weirdness makes up for my boring life so just continue.
Now, where to start from? Think I'll start from when I met him. Yep, HIM.
So I've been going to night classes since I resumed for the harmattan semester and I always used one lecture theatre, SLT to be specific. So at the middle of the semester, I'm thinking I've met everyone that uses SLT for night classes. Now in case you're not schooling at Unilorin, let me clarify something. Night classes aren't classes arranged by lecturers, they're just what we call going to read in classes at night.
Anyway, I'm sitting at my usual spot beside the window, glasses on, trying to get chemical kinetics to stick to my memory when this heavenly scent just hits me. I'm honestly not exaggerating right now, like this guy smelled so good, he still does. Like he's so good that I smelt him before I saw him. So before I think twice, I look back and see this incredibly cute dark guy who's talking to a friend of his and smiling. Now, if you're a girl, you'll probably relate to this. My heart went like pit-a-pat and it was all I could do to keep my mouth from hanging open. That would definitely not have been attractive. So as usual for a girl like me, I'm screaming in my head 'come sit beside me, please! There's plenty of space for you and your friend so just come and sit, then notice me and talk to me. Then ask for my number and then we'll be friends and then start dating'. Not kidding, this monologue was really going on in my head. I could already envision us as a couple, the cute couple bracelets we would get and the couple T-shirts and the beautiful pictures we would take together. I was already imagining how girls would be jealous of me when they saw my cute boyfriend and how guys would want me more too. Yeah, yeah, I know how obsessive that sounds but we girls can be a little crazy. So while this monologue is going on inside my head, my eyes were still glued to him. I think he noticed and his eyes did this little adorable swivel to look at me and if I was white, my cheeks would've been like beet red. I was blushing that much. I'm not sure but I think I tried to give him a little smile as I turned back to kinetics but it might've looked more like a grimace than a smile.
Of course, as it usually happens, he didn't sit next to me. He did sit somewhere in front of me so I was able to at least stare at him throughout. And you might think staring at someone while they're reading would be boring. Thought so myself till I spent hours just looking from my book to his face without getting anything I was trying to read. The best parts was when he would talk to his friend and they would laugh or smile. My heart literally stopped each time. His smile was gorgeous. In short, it was quite perfect. Till she came. And of course there's always a devilish she.
It was actually when I was doing something else, maybe checking my bag or something when she passed. Didn't think anything of it till I looked up and saw this gorgeous specimen approaching them. The most heartbreaking thing was, he was looking at her and grinning from ear to ear. She got there, shook hands with my guy's friend and sat right next to him. Sat right next to my own guy. I was flipping inside. I thought that would be all and my face was already all scrunched up but the new devil decided to take things up a notch. She hugged him! Then took out her books and started opening. All the while smiling and talking to my guy who, I might inform you, I already named Dan. He just looked like a Dan.
I am not going to lie, everything going on in my head was just "shit, there is no way I can compete with that".
