The activities were on...students tottering all-over the place,some are relaxing under shades,while some were in hurry to into d available theatres. Emeka and his friends(Chisom and Chuks) were relaxing under close to a kiosk;discussing every-girls,lecturers,and all amidst laughter. They were about discussing one of Emeka's numerous girlfriends when Chisom said"guys,these new girls,i mean the new intakes,they make sense o" "I think say na only me see them o"Chuks chirped in,and dey all rolled with laughter

"I sure say Emeka is making arrangements to have more gals on his list" chuks added nudging Emeka,who winked and said"trust your guy na" they were about to start another round of laughter when Chisom quickly made signs,they understood and looked around...
Betty walked briskly to the kiosk"good afternoon ma, please i need some hardcover notes and a pen" "wow..she over make sense o"Chisom exclaimed while the other gaped. "Emeka make sure you add her to your list o"Chuks said loudly,not minding that she is within hearing distance.

Emeka stood up and walked across to her while his friends cheered. "hi beautiful" he said just as Betty was about to walk away...she turned slightly,summed him up in a look dat could make one freeze"errm...are u a new student? I mean ur face-it looks like...I mean...we've nt met b4" Emeka said slowly. "do i look like one of them, do i have their traits?"Betty snapped"i beg your pardon"he replied looking confused.
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 3:20pm On Dec 31, 2012
"do i look like those gals u av on ur list? Do i have their looks" Betty queried
"errm i'm sorry...I.."He started
"mtchew"Betty hissed and walked away
Emeka sighed,disappointed,walked back to his friends who were already doubling with laughter..."Emmy-boy,don't worry-ndo,thats how these JJC gals dey form,no mind dat gal...plenty fish dey river abeg" Chisom said patting his shoulder, he shrugged it off,placed his head on a knotted fist-licking his wound

Nice piece...cool

I not much of a critic, but I think you should work on the paragraph aspect for quicker understanding (just my opinion, cos others may find it easier to read cool ).

BTW..it promises to be a very interesting story..

Betty was hurrying up d staircase dat led to the 1st floor of d faculty of science building,she was moving so fast that she didn't notice Emeka coming down the stairs,and boosh! She banged into him;scattering his books all over the place
"aaww...erm..i'm sorry..i..erm" she stammered nervously trying to pick-up the books.while Emeka stared down at her-too suprised to speak.
"I'm very sorry,i didn't notice..i...i am...i'm truly sorry" Betty said finally,presenting the books to him without looking up.
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 6:35pm On Jan 01, 2013
"errm..never mind..its ok"Emeka said collecting his books,unconciously brushing her fingers.
"i'm truly sorry"Betty said again,pulliing her fingers from his grip.
"its alright dearie...anyway,I'm Emeka Jonas"he said wearing his disarming smile
"I'm Betty Amah" she replied shaking his hand.
"nice name...eerrrhhh,i'm sorry about the other day..u know.."Emeka stammered
"its aiit"Betty said smiling sweetly. Oh gosh she's too pretty Emeka thought."i...errm,you'r in this faculty too?"Emeka asked
"yea,department of biochem,level one and you?" Betty replied
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 7:02pm On Jan 01, 2013
"i study industrial chem,level three"
"wow..dats nice, i'm here to see a lecturer,i need to get going now" Betty stated
"okay,nice, i gatta let you go now, see ya later" emeka replied

She turned again to get a glimpse-he is cute,oh my! nice shave,gosh! She thought

Sighing loudly;Emeka moved away from the window towards a cushion in his sitting room,he sat down gently and rubbed his eyes swiftly,he has been standing for more than 30mins thinking of Betty. Thank God his mischievous friends went out,else it might have been talk-talk and talk.He need time to think,there is a force pulling him to Betty,her face is the new wallpaper on his mind,he sees her in all he does.
"what's happening.."he thought loudly ""this gal is giving me a hell lot of torture,can't stop thinking of her-aaargh!those eyes...she is just different" he continued. "who knows...she might not like me.."
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 2:48pm On Jan 02, 2013
He stood up,and moved towards the window again"hey doing this to yourself"he said chuckling and walked into his bathroom,he stared blankly at mirror,he waved at the image"hy do i knw you"he chuckled again trying to stare the image down.
He is too beautiful to be called handsome,fine-smooth skin,thick hair,bushy eyebrows and lashes,...and ooh those six packs,he is just everything a gal will pray for.he smiled again at his image,waved,and moved into the bathtub,he needed a kul shower,he need to go out,perhaps,he might find her again.

Bukky,got something i want to tell you.When write a story like this,try to remember to write words in full.for example,instead of gal,write girl and instead of lyk,write like.Also,put your write up in paragraphs.More over,when writing a dialogue between two characters,start each dialogue on a new line.Thanks

They know themselves tongue

Don't mind them jare tongue grin

BukkyDan: Hy Nlanders,dnt read and walk away,comment on ut- tell me wat u think about my story

Okay, I've got a couple of constructive critisms which I think if adhered to, could greatly improve your writing:

~ Firstly, try cutting down on the number of new posts you create. I couldn't help noticing you've got a new post for every four or five lines of text. Why not have as much as you possibly can in one post and them demarcate with the appropriate punctuations, paragraphing and style layout if possible? Even if you're typing from a phone, this is still possible to an extent. You'll find that less is more in this instance, and is less distracting for your readers.

~ Secondly, as someone aptly mentioned, make more effort to type your words out in full. Using coded abbreviations is a great turn-off and makes you come across as a lazy writer, not willing to make the effort.

~ Thirdly, although you've correctly encased direct speech in quotation marks, you might want to consider using italics for your character's thoughts. So for example, instead of writing:

BukkyDan:

...She turned again to get a glimpse-he is cute,oh my! nice shave,gosh! She thought
Emeka hurried towards his friends smiling-atleast i apologised,ol'boy those eyes..ish!dat smile...Betty hmmn..He said to himself.

You might want to amend it to:

BukkyDan:

...She turned round again to get a glimpse of him. He is cute, oh my! nice shave, gosh! She thought.

Emeka hurried towards his friends smiling. At least I got to apologise to her. Ol'boy those eyes..ish! That smile...Betty hmmn.. He said to himself.

(note: I've used a blue font to highlight the areas you might want to amend.)

~ Fourthly, you need to pay special attention to your grammar and punctuation. When using the first person, use the capital letter "I" rather than "i".
You also need to be careful what tense you use and stick to it. So if you're writing in the present tense, try sticking to that and not mix it up with sentences written in the past tense. So for example, where you've got:

BukkyDan: He stood up,and moved towards the window again"hey doing this to yourself"he said chuckling and walked into his bathroom,he stared blankly at mirror,he waved at the image"hy do i knw you"he chuckled again trying to stare the image down.
He is too beautiful to be called handsome,fine-smooth skin,thick hair,bushy eyebrows and lashes,...and ooh those six packs,he is just everything a gal will pray for.he smiled again at his image,waved,and moved into the bathtub,he needed a kul shower,he need to go out,perhaps,he might find her again.

Change "is" to "was" and "will" to "would"

~ Finally, endeavour to leave a space after a fullstop or a comma. All questions should be denoted with a question mark at the end of the sentence. Any letter immediately after a full stop must be a capital letter. So for the quote above, change it to:

BukkyDan:

He stood up and moved towards the window again. "Hey stop doing this to yourself", he chuckled, as he walked into his bathroom. He stared blankly at mirror, waved at the image, saying: "Hey do I know you?" He chuckled again trying to stare the image down. staring at his reflection.

***(YOU DON'T STARE YOUR OWN IMAGE DOWN!)***

He was just too beautiful to be called handsome. With fine-smooth skin, thick hair, bushy eyebrows and lashes...and ooh those six packs,he was just everything a girl would pray for. He smiled again at his image, waved and moved into the bathtub. He needed a kul cool shower, seeing as he needed to go out. Who knows, perhaps he might be lucky enough to bump into her again.

Please note that these highlights are not intended to discourage you, but to encourage you become a better writer. I think you've got a good storyline here. All you need to do is to incorporate those suggestions and most importantly, just write, Write and keep on WRITING!

Kudos to you for the effort made, thus far... smiley

Betty smiled shyly at her friend/room-mate;Edith who just pulled a dirty joke.
"This one you're doing oju simesime for me, you wan form saint abi?" Edith started
"Which one is oju simesime again? I'm just wondering how you use dirty words without any remorse"Betty replied
"Is it bad? We're in a matured world jor. Meanwhile,have you heard from your new friend Emeka?" Edith continued
Betty's heart missed a beat,she felt shivers running through her spine"I don't know!"
"which one be that one again,this girl I dey warn you, no dey form saint for this school o"
Betty's heart raced fastly,she is not falling in love is she? No,she's just being caring. What if he should appear from no where now,is she presentable? She looked at herself all-over, a top,pencil skirt,slipper-sandals,with no make-up-hmmn,she prayed he won't see her.she was jolted back to reality;by Edith making a remark about the butt of a student who just walked into the buka they are in. She hissed at Edith,and her attention was drawn to a car that just pulled up close to the buka.
Its occupant got out,and her heartbeat increased, she quickly looked away,oh no! Not now! She groaned. "wetin happen wey you dey sound like pig abi na piglet"Edith queried
"Hy there!" Emeka said walking towards them. He was in a 3/4 shorts and T-shirt to march.
"Hy, whats up!" Edith said,trying to sound important while Betty kept mute.
He pulled a chair and sat down facing Betty, he smiled at her "Good afternoon" she said quietly
"you look good- i luv you hair-do!" Emeka said chuckling,"So how are you"
"we're fine" came Edith's quick reply.
"you're having lunch?!" he stated rather than asking
"errm yea, we're done with it,we're just about leaving..." Betty flipped not minding Edith's nudge
"You're not leaving cos i came right?" Emeka asked with a sorry look
" oh no! Not atall! We're having lectures soon." Betty replied,standing up,picking her bag,and eyeing Edith who just pinched her.
"Okay..but please can I have you phone number? I'd just call to day hi" He asked with pleading eyes.
She took his phone, typed in he phone number,"Bye" she said handing over the phone.
"Errrm, what theatre are you having lectures? Errm so that i can drop you off, I might be going that way too"Emeka stated rising slowly.
"Theatre two,the one close to the library" Edith said quickly, determined not to miss the ride.
"I'm going that way too,lemme drop you off" Emeka said,excitement creeping into his voice.
Betty couldn't help the situation anylonger,she had no choice but to oblige.
They got into the back seat,and off they went.

It was past 11pm,Betty glanced at her wrist-watch nervously as she hurried down the path that led to the girls hostel. She shouldn't have stayed this late @ the library,she was carried away quoting names of bacteria's, she chuckled nervously.
A rustling sound from the bush by her right made her shudder. She had been warned severally by Edith never to stay out late,else she'd be a victim to rapists. She heard some footsteps,or maybe it was her imagination,but wait! The sound is now clearer,she bent down,picked her slippers,pulled up her skirt,and was about to start a marathon when she saw them clearly.
They were about ten,surrounding her. ThankGod they were girls,but girls can be rapist too...gosh!
"Uh-oh, there she is! I never knew I would be priviledged to host you this sweet night" one of the girls said. "My name is Gloria aka G-Gal; if you care to know, I'm the leader of the female cult group of this uni. You should have heard about me!" she continued moving towards Betty.
Betty felt she really wanna pee,the fluid is already trickling down her legs.
"I hear say you been dey follow Emeka like super-glue, so na you be the gal wey no wan let Emeka notice me abi?" G-gal asked cocking an eyebrow
"I...I...errm" Betty stammered before one of the girls asked her to shut her prat.
"You wan follow me talk abi? You get the liver come get audacity join; to open that latrine talk to me? E be like say your malle no teach you manners, abi na jjc dey worry you! I need to give give you lectures for here" G-gal screamed at her,raising her hands to strike her...
Betty closed her eyes tightly expectantly,wondering how the blow will sound, when she was startled by a over-tone bass voice scowl "let her go!". She open her eyes swiftly... Jeez! They were surrounded by about 15 boys,the leader holding G-gal's arm. Yeh! She knew she was in deep trouble, they might kill her, she started confessing her sins,asking God to receive her soul when she heard G-gal argueing with the other gang leader.
"Jay-Jay, why should I? She deserve it and more, she is dating my crush, she won't let him notice me.."G-gal protested angrily.
"Your crush? Ridiculous! So you wanna punish for no crime? Aint you ashamed of your self fighting a Jjc over a guy who will never notice you?" Jay-jay said chuckling
"I want you and your gals to leave this parole now!"he added
"no i won't" G-gal said angrily
Jay-jay moved towards her,pulled her gently towards him and quitely said "Next time you try to be stubborn,ama tell my boys to rip-off your p-part, eat off your headlights,and ama derive some pleasure in designing your face so you won't make-up anymore,you Dam"
pushing her violently to the ground,he place foot on her and said" take this thrash outta ma sight", swiftly his boys grabbed her and her clique into the bush.
Betty had tried a million times to faint, but she couldn't, she couldn't stop muttering"LORD RECIEVE MY SOUL"
"And where were going to Nnem?"
she started" I...errm,i'm coming from...from...from...going...to..to..to..to..the hostel sir" "good night...go...good evening sir" she added flexing her knees.
Jay-Jay smiled"I'm Jacob,aka jay-jay,let me see off to the hostel" he said taking her hands,he walked her gently to the gate leading to the hostel rooms.
He stopped at the gate and whispered" Next time, don't walk around this late huh?! You might not be so lucky again huh?!"
"Thank you sir"Betty flexed her knees
"oh damn! I'm not sir, i'm Jay-jay" he told her
"I.. Sorry sir...i mean..Jay-Jay"
"whats your beautiful name?"he asked
"Betty," came the soft reply
"nice name, now hurry in,good night" he said,and walked away briskly,while she ran towards her room.

"Ehn! Ehehehehe! Betty you won't kill me! You mean you were attacked by G-gal's clique? Mi ole wa ku ooo,Olorun mi o":@ Edith yelled at Betty who was shivering all over.
"ThankGod for your life, sho gbo! And who did you say was your saviour?" she continued.
"one Jay-Jay like that.."Betty whimpered
"gba! Do you know who is G-gal and who Jay-jay is in the university? Just thank God for your life o" Edith screamed again.
Betty got to know from her yelling friend some facts about G-gal and Jay-Jay.
Jay-Jay is a 300 level medical student in the school, he is well respected by students and lecturers due to his "high-tech" brain. He also is the gang leader of a cult,and his cult is the most powerful in the school,even other cults respect him. One suprising fact is that despite his indulgence in cultist activities; he still manages to be the best student in his department.
G-gal has been in school for five years now,though she offered a four yrs course,she still has some courses to settle before graduation. She is the gang leader of the female cultists int he school.
"What am I gonna do now?" Betty asked,not minding the quiver in her voice.
"My dear just forget about Emeka Jonas" Edith flipped.
Betty gaped at her, different thoughts flowing through her ming,"why? Why should I?"Betty asked quitely
"Because he is gonna cause you trouble!" Edith snapped
" and if you won't forget him...face your troubles alone" Edith continued" meanwhile Good night" Edith said lying down on her bed.
Betty sighed,she lay down too,hugged her pillow and wept,she missed her mum.

Emeka lay down on his fluffy carpet listening to his friends;They were arguing on football issues
"i swear C.Ronaldo fine pass Ozil" Chuks said.
"You even dey compare? Mtcheww, e be like say your eye blind, I take garri wey i drink this morning swear say Ozil fine pass" Chisom replied
"You dey use garri swear? Me i use Adamu's shayi and bread swear" Chuks retorted
Chisom was about to voice his own opinion when Emeka raised his hands
"Hey! Calm down guys,stop arguing who fine pass,lets talk about who is the best scorer..."
"ooooooh! Tell this mumu for me o"Chuks said mocking at chisom
"ogini! Who be mumu? How many goals Ronaldo score for Man.U?" chisom snapped...
And on the arguement went till Emeka's phone rang. He ran towards his bedroom"Hello?"
"Hy, please can you meet me at coke village now? The twin statue to be precise" Betty replied urgently.
"ok, just five minutes and I'l be there"
"thanks see ya then"betty said ending the call.
He stared at his phone,he wondered what was wrong.
"Guys,I'm going out"Emeka said picking his car keys
"where you dey go?" Chisom queried
"to see Betty i guess" Chuks chuckled
"Bye" Emeka said no minding their questions
**************
He saw her standing beside the statue, she looked worried."Hy"
"Hy" she replied
"hope I'm not late?"
"no you are not"she did not smile. "we need to talk"
"okay,lets sit down"
"I don't feel like,lets keep standing" she said quickly
"okay..." he was worried now
She rehearsed the previous night's episode for him.
"I'm sorry..but i don't who G-gal is" he told her looking concerned.
"Are you trying to tell me..."she stopped cos her voice was rising. She turned to leave
"Please don't go" He held her arm.
"I won't lie to you...you're my best friend"he continued and she rolled her eyes.
"Please," he pleaded and she wondered why he was pleading with her.
"i value our friendship alot, and..."his voice trailed off.
"aiit, its just that i value my life too, or do have any intentions apart from we being just friends?"Betty said quitely
Emeka's heart missed a beat, He is not gonna tell her now, he could feel her eyes searching him, he is gonna wait till later, soon,when she is in a good mood
"No" he said in a low voice.
"Good"came her reply "still friends" she added hugging him
"Yea, best friends" He replied,thanking God for the hug
she smiled,"hmmn, so have you gat anything to do?"
"no"
"okay, can you help me with some assignment, you did MTH1301?" She asked
"Yea,,,dat was my favourite course"he replied smiling
"Thanks"
"oh please! What are best friends for?!" he chuckled,taking her hands. And they walked towards a buka.

"time's up" the invigilator shouted.
Betty raised up her paper in unision with her coursemates,they just finished writting a test. The invigilator went round collecting the papers,after he was done,he left without a word. The hall became rowdy as all of them started conversing with friends.
"keep quiet!" the class rep boomed, and they all did,seeing a lecturer standing before them. They all respect the lecturer, he takes no nonsense.
" who is Betty Amah, Registration number Sci/09/BCH/8223?" the lecturer asked almost squealing,due to his tiny voice.
Betty shuddered as she stood up,she knew Mr Adams-the lecturer won't do this for nothing.
"see me in my office after the class"He squealed again.
She slumped into her seat,she hardly listened to what he was teaching, she was miles away in the land of imaginations...perhaps she failed her test or some lecturers too her case to him or her script got missing,or he didn't see her assignment booklet, perhaps she wrote rubbish or.....
She was sweating profusely,even the fan couldn't help. God please help me,I need you now Lord,She thought.
She sighed as he ended the lectures and left. She stood up immediately and followed him.
She stood for about ten mins by his door muttering some prayers.
She knocked slightly,no answer, she knocked again

Betty's legs became so weak that she wondered if they could carry her.
"Good afternoon sir!" she said weakly; flexing her knees in unision.
"uhmmm" Mr Adams grunted. "Sit down" he gestured towards a chair.
She perched on the chair facing him,her eyes and ears expectant.
"So you are Betty Amah." He began.
"yes sir" Betty shifted uneasily on her seat.

"uhm!" he grunted looking up. "I've heard alot about your beauty; and I now believe what I've heard, you are more pretty than people described you to be." he added grinning sheepishly.

What does he want; Betty's heart raced,he definitely did not call her to tell her she beautiful.

"You see...I want to host you at my guest house"He said finally.

"I...sir...I'm sorry,I don't understand" Betty replied,lips quivering

"Don't play games with me Betty, you know what i'm driving at" Mr Adams said impatiently.

"And I know you've heard about me, I don't play childish games, people don't turn down my requests" He added with a frown.

"I need not remind you that you are offering my course, a core course. You have a choice,- either a night at the guest house or a continuous failure in my course" He continued.

"Sir please,..."Betty is close to tears now. "Please sir,have mercy on me, I can't do it..please" she went on her knees.

"What can't you do?"He sneered.

"Sir please...I'm like a daughter to you, don't do this to me. I beg you in the name of God" Betty choked in bettween tears.

"What nonsense!" Mr Adams snapped."leave my office now! And mind you, you have 24hrs to think about it, I need you tomorrow night. Offer closed by 8pm tomorrow,and you'l have to carry over my course" He added with a note of finality.

"Sir please..."

"Leave my office now!"He ordered and she scampered out of the office.

**************
Betty sat down under a shade, she was thinking a thousand things at the same time. She wondered where she had gone wrong, what has she done to deserve this.

"Is this my destiny or is it fate?" she whispered to herself

"why must i suffer all these?" she asked herself, tears welling up her eyes.

Mr Adams must be heartless...he chose her of all people "Me?" she said loudly with tears rolling down her cheeks, she wiped them off but they kept coming. Since all efforts to stop the tears seemed to be in vain; she placed her head on her knees and sobbed silently.

"Helloo?"

she looked up startled,not recognising the speaker,she quickly wiped her face before looking up at him again.

"Are you alright?" the speaker asked.

Whats sort of useless question is that "Yes I am" she replied standing up.

"You don't seem to be"the speaker chuckled

Rubbish! She thought, wetin consign garri and lipton,she hissed within her,but wait! She has heard that chuckling voice somewhere before, but where? She looked up at the speaker again and gasped

"Jay-Jay?" she asked almost in a whisper

he chuckled again "I thought you won't recognise me".

"I'm sorry..you know I've only met you once,and it was dark...anyway,thanks alot for that night."Betty replied.

"Aiit. So whats going on? I've watched for 20 mins now, you've been crying" He sounded business like

He seemed too interested to know what's going,this guy like amebo"I...nothing really" she chirped

"You have to tell me"he said authoratively. "And if you don't, ama find out my own way. Hope you know what that means" He added with a stern look.

What kind of raw trouble is this? Heyye! What am I gonna do now, Betty fidgetted as she met his steady gaze.

She spilled out everything to him. He simply smiled and asked her the name of the lecturer, she told him.

He let out a chuckle and said "come with me". She hesitated.
He took her hand and pulled,and she followed him.

what is he gonna do to Mr Adams? Betty thought as they walked towards his office, she was tempted to ask him but her tongue was tied.

Boom! Jay-Jay kicked at the door with the inscription"MR ADAMS" and it flung open, he pulled her in and bolted the door.
Mr Adams was alarmed and he rose to his feet.

"You!" Jay-jay started pointing a finger at him. "You!" he said again moving towards him.
Mr Adams backed away "Jacob please"He pleaded. And Betty was not suprised he knew Jay-Jay.
Jay-jay continued moving towards him,when he finalled got to him,he pushed him to the wall; his eyes bloodshot.

"Jacob please..."Mr Adams pleaded again

"What happened?" Jay-Jay growled.

"I swear..I was paid to do it" Mr Adams shrieked

"Did you touch her?" Jay-Jay whispered

"I swear...I did not, ask her...I swear" Mr Adams was writhing in pain.

Jay-Jay turned towards Betty "He did?"

"No" she replied, she enjoying the whole scenery, she was tempted to laugh at the look on Mr Adams face. Foolish man! She thought,Oya come and drag me to your guest house now! She hissed within her.

"who paid you for the job?" Jay-Jay scowled letting go-off his neck.

"It's Gloria; G-gal" Mr Adams whimpered.

Betty gasped, "hmn.." Jay-Jay grunted, he moved towards Betty, placed an arm on her shoulder and said
"so you look this fine girl finish come say you wan enter her london? You no knw say london get levels?"Jay-Jay chuckled and straightened up.

"As you mumu reach, dem send you, you no fit look road, you no dey look eye? You no dey fear face? You get moral to threaten her? Your guest house fit contain her? " Jay-Jay added,his face hard and his voice rising.

"I'm sorry" Mr Adams whimpered
Wham! Wham!! Jay-Jay's palms landed on his face twice. He reeled and almost fell down, and Jay-Jay charged towards him.

Kpas! Kpas!! Two slaps followed. He threw a punch,and Mr Adams staggered, he held the wall for support "Please don't kill me" he pleaded,his voice was croaky.

Betty who was enjoying the scene backed away; alarmed."Jay-Jay?" her voice was shaky.

"of course I won't kill you"Jay-Jay chuckled "I'm Jay-Jay, I don't shed blood" His chuckle was louder now.

"Now...I think you've gat the message, do not tamper with just any girl. Tell all your fellow lecturers; Betty Amah is my sister! Understood?"

"Yes sir" Mr Adams whimpered

"Good! Next time you try that nonsense; ama use your balls for suya! Now apologise to her!"

"I'm sorry" Mr Adams was sobbing.

"Good! Nnem, let's go" Jay-jay took her hands; slamming the door behind them.

"Thanks, I'm very grateful"Betty said as they got out of the building.

"Aiit, you're like a sister to me, any problems just call on me ok? This is my phone number"He wrote it down on a paper.

"Thanks brother" she said excitedly hugging him.
