“Shut up and kneel down there, your hands on the air” Jackson ordered. He did what he ordered him to.
“So who gave you the audacity to stay back?” He asked pulling his belt from his belt holes, to start another round of beating.
“Au…nty said I should wait till she return” Jackson landed his belt on his body, kicking and punching him too, to his satisfaction.
“You dare called my wife a liar, you won’t eat to Night” he left the sitting room fuming with anger.
“Is better you die and join your useless parents, cursed child!” She spit at crying Michael and left him in the parlour alone to nurse his bruises and broken heart.
“Mama and papa, why do you leave me all alone in this wicked world?” He clean the incessant dropping tears with back of his hand, he covered the wrapper on his body and lie on the mat.
“My stomach” he groan, the worms in his stomach are demanding food.
“Where is this useless boy?” Felicia glance at the wall 4:25am, she stroll through the passage and open a door that faces the kitchen, the storeroom.
“You will see today” she snap her finger on seeing sleeping Michael on the mat, she picked up a long cane and a bottle of water.

“You want to beat me? Ewooooh!” Felicia screamed when she notice that his screaming have alerted everyone in the house.

“Take” Becky who woke sleeping Michael, gave him 50naira to buy what he will eat during the break, everyone is aware of his aunty cruelty.
“Thank you, Beck” he took the money and thank her profusely, he ran out of the class jumping and dancing happily.
“See the mumu there” the short albino among his three friends pointed to where Michael is eating biscuits and pure water hungrily, three of them walk to where Michael is.
“Good afternoon, seniors” Michael stood up and greet three of them, the older one who is not meant to be a student in sss3 anymore gave him a hot slap that he staggered backward.
“Girlfriend snatcher” he cursed Michael, he wanted to slap him again instead of him, he slapped his albino friend. The three friends start slapping each other to the amazement of Michael.
