I stared at the food and saw that it was partially
burnt, i had no choice but to eat it that way so
as to reduce the hunger pangs i was feeling.

I took a fork and emptied what was left of it into
a plate and carried it back to the room.

I dugged into the food and ate it hungrily not
minding the burnt taste.

Few minutes later, i was about rounding up when
i heard a sound from my door.
”kpon kpon kpon” it sounded again.

Who is there, i asked

its me Iya kola, the voice replied.
On hearing that, i recognised who she was.

food into the plate and went to drop it in the

Me: Amen, i answered.

Iya kola: here are the gifts i bought for you on
my way coming, she said extending a polythene
bag towards me.

Me: thank u very much, am grateful ma, i said
collecting it from her.

Iya kola: you are welcome. I will be on my way

she said while standing up.

Me: okay ma, please extend my greetings to

Iya kola: i will, be a good boy and remember to

After she left, i quickly emptied all the contents
of what was inside the polythene bag on the

Hmmmmmmmm, bananas, i said peeling one of
them and started eating it.

At least this is much more better than the burnt
noodles i ate recently.

After eating to my fill, i emptied the peel into the
dust bin and went into the bathroom to take my
