Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 20
TWO WEEKS LATER.
I was in my room watching some of my Tv program when my mother came and hugged me tightly. What is the reason behind her joy? I don’t know.
All I know for now is that I am extremely happy. I haven’t seen Tracy for close to a month now. My family was very peacefull. Just like in the good old days.
Mum: I knew you could do it?
Me: do what?
Mum: I knew it. I knew you are going to make me proud.
Me: please mum, can you tell me what is actually going on right here?
Mum: take a look at this!
She said and gave me her cell phone. I took it and looked at the content of the message.
I screamed in joy and happiness. I got 230 as an aggregate score in my JAMB exam. Enough to get me into any university of my choice and my applied course was micro biology.
I hugged my mum tightly. She also hugged me and kissed me at my fore head.
Mum: we are gonna celebrate it.
EVENING OF SAME DAY...
My dad came inside our house. We didn’t even bother to greet him because he were looking dull and gloomy while I was on the floor crying.
Dad: what’s going on here?
Dad: can someone please talk to me?
Dad: Diana what’s wrong?
Me: silent for awhile before I spoke Dad, dad, my jamb..
Dad: your Jamb? What about it.
Me: my score, my score..
Dad: don’t tell me, don’t tell me you failed jamb?
Dad: can I see the text message you received?
I gave him the phone, he collected it with fury.
Dad: what!!!!! 230?
Me and my mum: hahahahaha, got you!
Dad: breathing very hard and fast please don’t do that again. Do you want to give me a heart attack?
Me: sorry dad.
Mum: hahaha. Heart attack indeed?
Dad: come and give daddy a hug.
I came and gave him a big hug.
Dad: bring champagne lets pop.
He said as my mum quickly went to the fridge to bring the drinks. My dad took his phone and made some few calls, he was calling the vice chancellor of uniport.
I smiled to myself. That’s one thing about Nigeria. With connections, you can go anywhere and as for me, my admission is secured.
ABOUT FIVE MONTHS LATER
I came to university of port Harcourt. My dad always wanted me to go to a private university but I don’t like them. I want to go to a university where I will be able to mingle with different people from different classes not to go to a university where I will be surrounded by the rich.
Since university of port Harcourt was my choice, my dad with his connections secured an admission for me without any stress.
I was coming back from the faculty of science. I have already gotten my matrix number and an accommodation but the problem is that I can’t locate my hostel.
Guy: hi, how can I help you.
Me: please am finding difficulty in locating my hostel.
Guy: oh, you must be a fresher. What’s your name.
Guy: lol, so Alhaji Tekno was actually singing for you.
Me: hahaha, funny dude. You don’t know me but yet, we are relating like long time friends.
Guy: that’s my life for you. Diana, you can call me Idris.
Me: nice name. What course are you applying for?
Idris: course? Am a 200l student of Micro biology.
Me: oh sorry.
Idris: what about you?
Me: I applied for same course as you.
Idris: very nice. So Diana, can I show you to your hostel?
Me: with pleasure.
Idris: alhaji tekno!
Me: lol, better stop it o.
