“Aro rugged you, how far?” i said “anchoring”

KC

with a frown on my face, “dis one wey ur face

dey

like dis, Prof Nwosu don nak u home and away?”

Kc asked. “how u take know? guy him nak me

home and away oh, what of u?” i asked, “guy

my

own na only away him nak me oh” Kc answered.

“so we go stay for this town for another one

year

be dat?” I said. “naso oh, our mate go serve

finish,

we go still dey sch.” Kc added.

Home and away was a slang we used in our

department to refer to double failure. First of

all,

“Home” means if a lecturer is handling two

courses

(1st and 2nd semester) and you fail the first

semester course, that means; “the Lecturer

don

nak u home”. If you fail the second semester

course, that means; “the Lecturer don nak u

away”.

But if u fail both courses, that means; “the

Lecturer don nak u home and away”. In my

case,

the lecturer “nak” me home and away, Phy411

and

Phy412.

“u get where u go dey stay?” i asked Kc. “i no

get

oh, i go dey come from Port-harcout, i go dey

come once in a week” He responded. “me i dey

stay with my cousin for Nekede, i go dey come

anytime wey dem get lecture oh, u no say that

Prof

wicked, and him dey serious with attendance” I

said. “him suppose consider us wey be spill over

students na” Kc said. “u no know that man, set

before our set wey get spill over dey come

lecture,

na God go save us oh” I said as we walked out

of

the sch compound.

“guy find me even if na 100 bucks make i take

enter bus go Nekede na” I said. “take, manage

am,

na 50 bucks i get” Kc said offering me a worn

out

50naira note. “u don try, u be correct man,

half loaf

of Agege bread is better than chin-chin” i said

as i

collected the money.

If there was one thing i seriously lacked lately,

that

thing was Money. Even 50naira was a huge

amout

of money to me.

I “anchored” Kc and walked slowly to where i

would board a bus. What i never knew was that

a

bad news was waiting to be told at home.

“guy how far, chaw dey house? because the

worm

wey dey my belle don chop my intestine finish

oh” i

said to Brain Box as i got home. “guy chaw no

dey

house oh, we dey wait make u come sef before

we

go arrange chaw” Brain Box responded.(chaw

was

a slang for food) “because na me be una Mama

na?” i said. “guy no be so oh, Tochiba no get

money and me sef no get money” Brain Box

responded.

Just then, Tochiba walked in and said, “our

landlord

come today oh. Him say make we pack comot for

dis house oh, him say him give us from now to

next week Tuesday to pack comot oh”.

My bad!! i forgot to introduce my friends!!

Brain box

was a boy from Mbaise. His brain was his most

priceless asset. In Nigeria, the most cunny set

of

human beings are from Mbaise in Imo state. An

ibo

Musician once sang that, “if u are in a room

where

an Mbaise man and a snake is, first kill the

Mbaise

man before u kill the snake, because the

Mbaise

man is more dangerous than the snake”.

Dangerous

was the perfect word to describe Brain Box,

sometimes he even scares me. His cunny nature

fetched him the name Brain Box. He can even

decieve the wisest of men. If i said he was an

award winning dangerous con artist, i wasn’t

far

from the truth. Brain box also had spill over,

but

not in my sch.

While Tochiba was my cousin, he was trained in

Alluminium roofing and window assembling. His

real name was Tochi, but he preffered to be

called

Tochiba.

They were both the roomates i had. I loved

them

so much. But what i never knew was that we

would soon be divided.
