Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 19

As we were going, she then asked

Timi: So what do you think about that VP.

the way she said this was as if she was not the one that was caught.

Me: I’m really afraid ooo I don’t know what to think sef.

Timi: laugh so you are afraid of that man.

Me: I’m not afraid of the man I’m just afraid of the repercussion that will occur when my parent get to know.

Timi: Who told you he’s going to tell your parents.

Me: its obvious in the way he speaks and the fact is that he has my Father’s number.

Timi: laughed thank God non of these teachers have my parent number.

Me: you are lucky… But I have to start practicing how to defend myself.

As we were still discussing, we saw five boys dressed in all black. I didn’t bother myself until when Timi said what made me almost urinate on my pants.

Timi:Enny if you love yourself better start running.

I already understood what she was saying so I just stylishly turned back and increased my pace. I did not know when i started running when i looked back I saw the guys too running towards my with full speed like someone competing for Olympic Gold medal. I was so confused on what to do next but I didn’t stop running. And the worst part of the situation was that I was not too familiar with the area bcos I just go there to school and nothing more. I just kept running straight so that I won’t get lost after about 3mins of nonstop running I stopped and looked back and I saw that the guys were no longer after me so I stood there and took cab home. before I got cab that day was like forever standing but finally I got a cab and I got home that day some mins to 9pm my Dad will not sleep and neither will my mum nor Aunty Funke sleep, that’s how important each child was before my parent especially my father,he can sacrifice his life for us to be successful in this life I love him but he gets me annoyed most times as he will not allow me make decisions on my own. So when I got home that day, I met Aunty Funke outside the house (within the compound).

Aunty Funke: where have you been. she yelled.

Mum: Funke ta niyen (Funke who is that) she asked when she heard the way Aunty Funke yelled

Aunty Funke: Ma its Enny ooo. As my mother heard this, she quickly rushed out to see me. I thought I was already dead cos it’s obvious that I’ll be dealt with, but I received a warm welcome from both parent.

Dad: Come, what took you so long that you are coming by this time.

Me: When we closed today, a teacher sent me on an errand so as I was going I met one of my class mate and we were going together so it got to a point when we saw some boys about five of them coming our way when she told me to run for my life. I ran ooo I looked back and saw how these boys were running after me, I didn’t even have time to think so I just kept running from street to streets when I lost my way, in fact locating where I could get cab wasn’t easy for my so that’s why I’m late. *oboy ee see Grammy lie* I thought within myself hoping that they would buy it and luckily they believed me but the look on Aunty Funke’s face clearly showed that she didn’t buy a bit of my fable.

Mum: Thank God they didn’t catch up with you. You are not going to school tomorrow. I wanted to agree but I remembered that the VP asked Timi and I to report to his office first thing tomorrow morning. so I lied again and said that we are having tests tomorrow and I will not like to be absent.

After much contemplation, my Dad gave his consent and told me I can go and I should make sure that immediately we close I should head home straight without any delay. After all these, I was discharged and allowed to go to my room.

I was in my room thinking of what happened earlier. I was still in my thinking mode when I just cut across a sharp remembrance. it was about the dream I had, remember I didn’t tell you about the dream.

Well if you want to know about the dream.
