“Em. . .yeah, I guess. The sunset and everything.” Chuks looked at where the sun was sinking beyond the Western horizon. The flatness of the land made it seem as if it dropped out of sight abruptly, just past where he could see, and the sun was going down into where the land ended, painting the whole sandy site in a deep, shimmering shade of gold. He decided Belinda was right.

“Belinda, I’d like to know something. How on earth did you figure out how to couple the bazooka?”

“Oh, that?” she breathed, as if she couldn’t believe he was asking. “Well, I did my research yesterday at home, and tried to learn as much as I could without the weapon. I just thought he was going to ask us to do it. You know Instructor Max.” Segun nodded. Of course the guy knew, he was in the same class as she was. “Even though it turned out I was right, I have to admit, I was still a tad nervous, but. . . ” she shrugged. “I did it, didn’t I?”

“ ‘Course you did, girl,” Segun said and raised his palm. Belinda smiled and they hi-fived, both laughing. “It was impressive to watch, you know, you working away like that. I was proud of you, honestly.”

Belinda lowered her face, but not before Chuks had seen her white cheeks redden. The girl wasblushing.
“Really? You did?”

Segun opened his mouth to answer, most likely a reply as sugared up as everything else he had been saying, but he didn’t on account of the uniformed steward, who had been watching everything.

“Come, shey una wan chop, abi una no wan chop?” the woman said. “You talk sey una want food, I gave you food, you still dey stand here. Ehn, brother wey dey toast woman?”
They both looked at the plates they held, as if surprised to see them there. It was Segun’s turn to blush as he muttered apologies and the both of them turned to walk to the circle of students.

The woman shook her head. “Awon omo butter,” she muttered at their retreating backs.

The statement the woman made about toasting seemed funny to Belinda, and as they went, she laughed, and Segun had to smile as well.

Chuks smiled as he watched them sit beside each other.Toasting succesful.He shook his head. Beside him, Shine laughed. Apparently, he had seen the whole thing as well.
“The guy did well,” he said. Still smiling, Chuks nodded his agreement.

“Looks like your friend and Belinda are getting along very well.”

Chuks turned to see Anne standing beside him on his left, where Segun had been. She sat beside him, raising her white robes clear of her waist, so they wouldn’t get stained by sand and dust. She wore jeans underneath.
“Instructor,” Shine called from his other side. She looked across at him and smiled.
“Hey, Shine,” she said. Chuks adjusted to give her more space.

“I’m happy he finally worked up the nerve to start up a conversation at least. It’s been a while since he wanted to.” He turned to face her, noticing that both turban and tinted glasses were gone, replaced by the usual recommended pair she had, with her hair flowing down around her shoulders. “I like your style,” he said, with a smile. On his other side, Shine and Paul were discussing Segun and Belinda.

“Thank you, Chukwudi,” she said, hitting a long-nailed finger down hard at a spot on her hair. “Don’t mind me, jare, I just wanted something aside from our uniform.”
“So, you and Instructor Max. . . ” he let himself trail off. She was his instructor, after all, and he could understand if he was touching on a sensitive spot by asking.

Anne hissed. “That man has been getting on my nerves of recent. Imagine asking you guys to couple that thing together, as if he taught you how to do it.”

Chuks couldn’t complain. That was just their field instructor.

“Thank you for helping us with those things. I don’t think anybody would have known what to do if not for you.”

“No problem, my students are my priority. Unlike some people I know.” She looked across the circle. “What’s with your friend and Belinda? Those two are starting to look serious.”

Indeed they were. They seemed to have run out of things to talk about and chosen to just stare into each other’s eyes instead. Chuks had to admire Segun. The guy had always been a smooth talker. How he had gone from just discussing the training site landscape tothisso quickly was more than he could comprehend.
