By the time tasha came to drag nick out of bed like she usually does every morning, nick was already bathed, dressed and ready to leave…
“Wow! Someones up early for a change…” Tasha said surprised.
“Yeah.. Mum… I forgot to tell you that I have to be at school super early today. I was having trouble understanding the homework and err… One of the guys err said they can help me out before school.” Nick said scratching his head and hoping that tahsa will buy his excuse.
“Why didn’t you just ask me or tom nicky?” Tasha asked.
“Well.. Err… You guys were already in bed when I started with it and you looked really exhausted yesterday so I didn’t wana bug you guys..” Nick lied.
“Ok nicky… Since you’re early today, you can atleast have a decent breakfast before you go to school..” Tasha said walking towards the kitchen.
“Maaaa….. You know that I’m not one for breakfast… I’ll just grab a pack of oreos and a super M from the fridge… Please… I’m stressing out here. Its a lot of work and if I don’t get it done before the bell rings, I’m going to end up with detention…..” Nick squealed.
“Ok ok… Come on then… Grab your things, I’m waiting in the car.” Tasha grabbed her keys and headed to the garage where the car was parked.
Nick hurriedly took his things and was off to school in no time.
By the time they got to school, there was hardly anyone even there. Maybe just a handful of people casually strolling into the school yard.
Nick wanted to jump out of the car before they even got to the gate but he had to stop himself otherwise tasha would begin to get curious.
“Nick, you sure your friend is here? The school looks pretty deserted to me this early in the morning.” Tasha asked worriedly.
“Ya ya.. He’s here.. He messaged me already to ask where I was…” Nick lied again.
“Oh look! There he is…” Nick pointed to some kid he didn’t even know…. I better get going.. Love you mum… See ya later k”
Nick climbed off the car and tasha began reversing a little. She need to take a u-turn in one of the driveways.
Nick slowed his pace down and when he was sure tasha was out of sight, he began walking past the school.
he rushed and turned the first corner. It was a little dingy but it was perfect. Nick pulled off his school shirt and dumped it in his school bag. He was prepared, he already had a lacoste t-shirt under his shirt. He then pulled off his school shoes and pulled out his takkies from his bag. He squirted a few sprays of his dunhill perfume then gelled his hair up into spikes. Nick even had a mirror in his bag.
Once he was satisfied about how he looked, he called kelly to let her know he would be there shortly.
“Hey nicky!!!!” She squealed and then lowered her voice and faked a cough.
“I’ll be there soon… What time do your parents leave for work?” Nick asked.
“Er.. Dads out of town and mum will be gone in another 10 minutes. But she’s cool. Even if you come over, she won’t have a problem at all… I’ve already told her about you.” Kelly boasted.
‘Oh boy!’ Nick thought to himself.
“Ok… Will call you when I’m almost there.”Nick was ready to drop the call.
“Wait!” Kelly spoke… “How are you getting here?”
“Don’t you worry about that… Have you got my stuff?” Nick asked..
“Aha… Double the amount that I gave you the last time” kelly answered.
“Perfect… Love you….” And he cut the call. That was enough to boost his spirits.
Nick pulled out a plastic bag from his school bag and threw his school bag in. Obviously people would be suspicious seeing a young boy walking around with his school bag. He had to hide it and act calm.
he came out from behind the bush, carefully making sure that no-one was watching and began walking toward the closest taxi rank which was just a kilometre away.
One lie leads to another and sin leads to restlessness.
A person will always feel paranoid when doing something wrong.
