Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 4
I stopped a taxi and headed home, when I got home it was already 2:30pm, I showed my grandma the admission letter, she thanked God for the scholarship but I knew deep down she was sad, so I told her, do not worry about me, I will be fine. I know my son its just that am going to feel lonely after you leave, but nevertheless I will get used to your absence she said. Then her face straighten up, let’s go prepare for your journey tomorrow, have you bought the things you may need there, yes I bought them this morning before going out. Ok then I think you are prepared, also don’t forget your phone. Just then we heard a knock on the door, so I went to open the door, standing at the door my Uncle Mark, good evening sir came my greetings to him. He looked at me then said sarcastically, you cannot come and hug me, or is it because you have grow tall? I smiled sheepishly then walked to give him a hug. How are you he said patting my head. He didn’t bring any belongings since he was to take me with him to Abuja tomorrow. After making fun of me he then smiled looking at my grandmother, good evening mum he said. Grandma looked at him feigning to be upset, so it is now you are aware of my presence in the house, it is not like that na my uncle said looking like a kid about to be flogged by his mother, how will you even know am here when you were all over Joshua immediately you came in, grandma retorted, uncle then said surprised, mum don’t tell me you are jealous, so you still have the guts to talk? Said grandma still pretending to be angry okay am sorry mom, how should I make it up to you before grandma could reply him I sneaked into my room.
Looking at the walls in my rooms I sighed, I knew certainly I was going to miss my room. I glanced at the equations and formulas that was written on the walls and smiled. When my friends first came to my house the first time, they just knew me to be smart but when they got to my room, they were terrified, at that time Maxwell was the one who spoke first, bro are you the one who wrote these? Well as you can see this is my room and apart from me no one else will do this or do you think my grandma wrote this? I asked him back, he laughed while Philip then said full of awe, bro I hope you don’t go crazy, because I have heard stories about people who lost their sanity to their intelligence, then begin to start spewing formulas from their mouths every day in their life. That was Philip who always thinks negatively. Remembering all these memories only made me to miss them more, anyway I braced up for the change, so I prepared my things. That night my dad called me, to ask if uncle mark had arrived, also he gave me some piece of advice then warned me not to make trouble with anybody in my new school.
