I walked over to where my book fell down. Picked it up and it was fully soaked and damaged.
Some of the students laughed foolishly while others felt great pity for me. She herself was filled with guilt. She wanted to say something but couldn’t.
She just walked to her sit and sat down while I did same.
Me: you dey craze? Why you dey laugh?
Samuel: wetin I tell you now now, I tell you say all this your flirting issue go back fire one day. I know even know say na today the thing go back fire o.
Me: no prob, she don do her own na.
We were still discussing when a junior student came to our class and passed an information to us.
He was sent by the principal and he came to tell us that the tomorrow which is Friday will be a public holiday for us, that means no school from Friday till Monday next week.
Men, We were truly happy. Don’t blame us, that’s the nature of Nigerian students o. We love holidays enh.
After the student passed the information, he left us and our teachers started coming in one by one, bombarding us with take home assignments.
Mrs Fatima came in last and gave us her assignment too. I was a little bit frustrated because I have no mathematics assignment book to write down her assignment.
Thank God Samuel quickly came to my rescue, he gave me his extra book and I jotted the assignment.
When she was through,she left us while the whole class started to chat happily. I looked at Bella and noticed that she was moody, not talking to anyone. Well, who cares?
Time check 3:30pm
The time keeper ran the bell for closing and we happily ran to the assembly ground where we held our closing devotion.
As usual, the principal came and started his long speech. Talking these and that, advising us to be serious and we shouldn’t play during the holiday but concentrate with our books.
When his boring long speech was over, they dismissed us and we all walked to our various classes, picked our bags and started heading to our various destinations.
Me and Samuel haven’t pass through the gate when a junior student ran up to me.
Junior: good afternoon my seniors.
Me n Samuel: afternoon, any problem.
Junior: someone is calling you senior Idris. The person said that you should meet her at the front of the library.
Me: ok, I will be there in a minute.
I said and the junior student ran off.
Samuel: this one wey the boy say her, that means na girl o.
Me: I no know o. In fact I for no go before o but as I hear say na her, I must go.
Samuel: alright, be fast, I am waiting for you.
He said and I left him as I hurriedly got to the library. When I got there, I was surprised to see Bella standing there waiting for me.
Me: *angrily* you again?
Bella: *with a sad face* Idris!
Me: what is it?
Bella: am sorry for what happened in class, I guess I must have over reacted to you when you didn’t do anything bad to me.
Me: ok, apology accepted. Can I go now?
I said wanting to get away from her. She knows the gravity of her offence, I have to meet Mrs Fatima and plead with her to help me. Our assignment book is different from our normall notebook.
From the assignment book, they will combine all our marks from assignments and tests and used it to score us in our continuous assessment, so you see, the book is very important.
Now that mine is damaged, and they haven’t recorded my assignment and previous test and no place to write the assignment Mrs fatima just gave us, its gonna be hard for me.
Bella: am truly sorry. Never knew it will lead to this. Please gimme a chance to make it up to you.
Ennhhhhh!!! My eye open. She won make it up to me.
Bella: ok, why don’t you come to my house tomorrow lets do some of the assignments together.
Me: *forming boss* erm, I don’t..
Bella: thanks. Can I have your phone number so that I can text you the address?
Me: no prob, here..
I said and gave her my number which she collected and left with a smile. Wow, I don dey toast the hottest chick small small o.
Samuel must hear about these I said moving over to Samuel when someone called me from behind, it was Mrs fatima.
Mrs Fatima: Idris!!!
