Must Read: Life With Spoilt Neighbours (Rated 18+) - Season 1 - Episode 3
Miss Emillia called me and insisted i help her buy a bottle of Pepsi from my neighbour who lived in the back flat.
I did as she instructed.
Getting there, i saw Emilomoh, (the first daughter of the family who lived in the back flat along with us).
## Emilomoh was a 9years old subtle little girl, wise and dubious. she’ll do anything to get movies.
Her mother had a little store across the street.
She was usually the one who kept the store for her mom. She used this opportunity to the best of her advantage.
Due to her weird lust for movies (home videos, American films etc), she ended up giving out products her mom sold at the store in exchange of films.
Most times customers would come and buy things worth as much as N700 and they won’t pay, in exchange, they’ll give her a movie disk………………….
This got me angry most times, cus her mom’s business was at a losing end.
Whenever you seem hungry, just take a stroll to ”mama Emi’s” shop (the mother of Emilomoh), if you eventually find Emi at the shop, its your lucky day! Take as much as you want, provided you drop a movie.
Though she was psyched about movies, but she was’ntt dull academically.
Though i was older than her in age and class, Emi knew the ‘rules of the street’ better than me.
She was pure ‘kpako’! even though she attended a private school and mingled with likes of me (aje butter boy)!
As young as she was, she was damn spoilt and very sharp!
I used to think she was a witch!
Her smartNess was too much for her age.
But when it comes to movies, that’s her ‘mumu button’!
## so after getting the cold Pepsi from Emi, i immediately went to deliver it to miss Emillia who was not in the sitting room when i got there.
I beckoned on her, and she replied from her room and requested i bring it to her.
Entering her room, i saw her un.cl.ad! I ran out immediately leaving the drink at the entrance of her door.
I could hear her laugh hysterically.
When she came out (on clothes), she was still laughing and she said ” Leke, why did you run like that now? Don’t you know that’s how woman was initially created? besides very soon, you’ll have to pay to see an image like that. You saw it free and you’re running”
I did’nt utter a word, the little boy was confused!
## as she was about opening the drink, i heard my mom’s car (Toyota stallion), i immediately ran to open the gate#
******* NEXT DAY*******
” study hard okay?” – my mom said to me while dropping me at the entrance of the school’s gate.
Entering into the school, i saw Tasha, she looked better than she was the other day. She was somewhat radiant!
She actually waited for me to catch up with her.
” is that your mom?” – Tasha asked
” yeah she is” – I replied
” how come you’re fair and she’s dark?” – She asked
” i don’t know o, my dad is fair sha.. By the way, Nonso told me that you voted for me to be the class rep, thank you! ” – I replied
she smiled and replied – ” ok, you’re welcome”
” Be careful of Emma, he’s a bully, he might try to bully you around for voting for me. try to avoid him and always threating to report him to Mr Ojo” – I said
”who’s Emma? Is he not the one coming towards us with a Cain?” – she replied.
I looked by the side she pointed to and behold…
Emma was I saw Emma coming with a Cain on
his hand. I couldn’t run, i stood still!
”shey i told you I’ll catch you today” -Emma uttered as he approached me.
”its too early to start all these, just leave me
alone” – I replied
” shut up! You’re lucky that you were
saved by that man yesterday, i would have
dealt with you” – Emma uttered as he
turned to face Tasha.
” and you, why did’nt you vote for me yesterday ?” Emma asked as he gripped Tasha’s hands.
” you better leave me alone or I’ll tell
uncle.” -Tasha muttered as she tried liberating her hands from Emma’s grip.
# Emma held her hands tight (to cause pain)#
”leave her alone!” – I shouted while I pushed him.
(see me wan play hero)
## Emma immediately faced me and hit my
legs with the Cain he carried. I held his hand as he was about to hit me again. We
struggled for some seconds before a teacher came to RESCUE ME from being beaten.
She held our hands and ordered that Emma and I go to her class and kneel,
But Tasha saved me as
she narrated everything that happened,
from the beginning (right from voting process) to the current situation we were.
It was obvious that Tasha was’ntt a street kid due to the way she spoke eloquently.
The teacher then released me but insisted that Emma goes to kneel in her class as she
parted to the staff room##
” hope he did’nt hurt you” – Tasha asked as she helped me carry my bag from the ground.
” No, but he’ll hear from me, I’ll see him after school” – I replied while taking my bag from her
(for my mind i wan play badt guy, knowing fully well that i won’t let
Emma see my brake light after school).
” Just leave him alone, he’s a bully” – Tasha advised
## we both walked to the class, and in few
minutes time, the bell rang for assembly.
Praise, worship and prayer was conducted.
Announcement was stated.
Subsequently,Emma was brought out and
flogged to deter any misbehavior from any
¤after assembly, we went to our various classes and had our sit¤
” Lekins go and get us chalk” – Mr Ojo ordered me.
## I stood immediately and went to the
staff room to get chalk. getting there, i saw
Nonso in the principal’s office with his mom along with the principal discussing.
I took some pieces of chalk from the staff room and dashed out.
While returning to class, i started thinking
” what has this Nonso done this time”
Esther intruded by thought and informed me that Mr Ojo required me to hurry up.
Hearing this, i walked swiftly with her.
Getting to the class, i handed the chalk to
Mr Ojo as her wrote MATHEMATICS on the
board (my best subject).
## it was 11pm and the bell rang for break.
I remained on my sit and brought
out my lunch to eat.
i turned to see who had that calm voice. Then
I saw Tasha holding a book while sitting
” please can you explain this ‘long division’ for me? I don’t really understand it, uncle was too
fast” – Tasha uttered
” ok, I’ll try. But try to meet uncle too. He’ll explain better ” – I replied
” ok, but i heard you’re good at maths” – Tasha said
” who told you?” – I asked.
” Tola” – she replied
##Tola was a dark skinned girl who was also intelligent, but she was a talkative. If you’d miss any information at school, just ask her, she’ll narrate every detail for you.
Coincidentally, She was Tasha’s seat mate##
” take this” – tasha uttered as she gave me
