Mary felt happy for his cousin and all she could was, don't hurt her o because I know she loves you, She once told me that she likes you but had me promise not to tell you. Cousin, So you new it and you never told me, Daniel said.. Anyways I pardon you because right now, I am the happiest Guy on earth.
Meanwhile, Goodlove was patiently waiting outside for him so he joined her outside and they strolled together to the bus stop.
Goodlove boarded a bus while Daniel strolled home with excitement.
Goodlove preferred calling at Nights to speak with the love of her heart and she kept doing that for days until one night, Daniel's mum went straight to his room and seized the phone because it was really late and Daniel was laughing with a loud tone.
Weeks passed and everyone in class loved the bonds between the two and it was the most talked about relationship because they were always found together at break times and after school's dismissal until one morning, the beginning of a turn around 😂.
Joy, a new student also got admitted into the same class with Daniel and Goodlove, but she was an arts student. She happens to find out that Daniel came from a school her boyfriend was and that's how the closeness started.
Most times when Joy had no classes, she preferred. coming over to the science class just to stay with Daniel. Innocently, Daniel kept accommodating her and she began calling him a name, Bestie, meaning best friend.
Goodlove became so uncomfortable but she couldn't spill it out to Daniel but he noticed and tried preventing Joy from visiting his class but she refused.
I'm not quite comfortable with your relationship with Joy, Goodlove told Daniel, but I have nothing intimate with her, she just comes around because I'm her boyfriend's friend. No! I see something else, I can feel she wants to take you away from me, the way she's comfortable around you tells me she's in love with you and I'm not comfortable Goodlove cried. Daniel tried to explain things to her but she made him promise that he wasn't gonna talk to Joy anymore.
It wasn't quite easy to bar Joy from coming, until one day Daniel had to Insist in a more strict tone that she shouldn't see him anymore. She got annoyed and left.
Things began changing, the fire went cold, the love diminished, Daniel tried hard to make things go right again but to worsen the whole issue, Joy was now on Goodlove's side. She told all sort of lies against Daniel to Goodlove all because she couldn't have Daniel to himself.
Every thing was now complicated, no amount of explaination would make things go well, Goodlove called quit the relationship.
This got Daniel emotionally depressed that he even got sick and couldn't come to school the next day.
Joy finally confessed to Daniel on the last day of their final exams that Since she couldn't get him to herself, she couldn't just allow any other person to.
