Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 3
when i got out side I saw my friends still waiting for me, the first thing they asked me was, what’s the name of your new school. I told them that it was Greenfield college in Abuja, they gasped with their eyes wide open, Philip who first recovered said, you mean the famous Greenfield in Abuja, the school which always wins the inter school competition hosted by the government between all states in the country. Yes I retorted, you sure are one lucky goat bro congratulations, Maxwell said to me with a smile, he hugged me, Philip joined in the hug and said proudly, I knew my buddy was always destined for great things from the day we entered his room, he just wasn’t ready to accept that fate, but I guessed fate has come knocking on his door.
We laughed over his choice of words, but then I was still sad. Maxwell who noticed my distress advised, you should be cheerful and happy you are going to such a good school, even though not seeing you in the next two years is going to be tough, you can’t allow our own happiness to ruin your own future, Philip then said, why don’t you just try to at least to beat your new school’s average score also be more social, you can also get to know more people there also I think you should start dating. I looked at him feigning to be angry, what do you mean by that? He stepped back grinning, sorry bro no offence just kidding, oooh! you want me to be like you that has screwed many innocent girls at this young age I said sarcastically, Maxwell who was watching out little drama spoke, if looks could kill the two of us would have already been murdered by you, by the way I think Philip is right, you are too close to yourself, you should try to be more social and accept people into your life, I then reminded them saying, if I am too close myself, then how did you get to know me. Philip, then retorted, have you forgotten we were the ones who initiated the friendship with you and desperately climbed those walls you put around your heart, we couldn’t crush them but we climbed sha but one thing for sure is that one day someone is going to crush those walls and that someone is going to be a girl. Then i said Lets bet for three years to come, I may not even make any friends, talk less of a girl, but if I have a female friend before the next two years I would copy all the notes for the both of you for our first semester In 100 level in the university, yeah am in said Maxwell, me too Philip said, ok then we shall see I retorted, by this time Graceland academy had already finished their break session for today and students where supposed to be in their class for the next lesson after the break period, so I looked at my friends, we hugged each other one last time before I went outside the gate, I couldn’t help but feel empty as I was going to the road side to board a bus home. Those two guys had always been there for me and showed me things that I could never learn myself, the only thing I ever figured out myself was my books but they opened my eyes showed me other things like football, standing up to the school bullies, even answering questions in class anytime, although I never tried to do that, they understood me, they never left me even after I tried to push them away from myself, they made me understand what friendship means.
