Re: My University Experience by omohjesu(m): 9:13pm On Mar 04, 2016
Chapter one
My name is Abraham Susan, they say your real life starts the moment you are admitted into the University, this is my story.

"Susan!!!" My mother cried out my name late at night. "Ma!l I answered sluggishly. I heard OOU admission list is out, have you checked yours? I was shocked the moment I heard OOU. I left my mum alone without replying her and hurriedly took my phone and without wasting time went to the school site and filled my JAMB reg in the space provided, the moment I clicked the check admission status button my heart raced as if I was being chased by hungry a lion that hasn't seen the shadow of a prey for a long time. The network was slow thus increasing the suspense the news created in me, Alas a new page was opened and I scrolled down to check my name and I could remember vividly how loud my scream was that it could wake a sleeping nation.


"Susan what happened" that was the first question my mum asked, still filled with joy and happiness I gave my mum the phone she read it out loud "Abraham Susan has been offered admission to study mass communication". She immediately started singing praises to God an tears of joy filled her face and she told me to go to bed and we would discuss about the next step the next day.




It was was Friday morning , I opened my eyes and I was so happy not until my angry sister Linda came into the room yelling at me "what sort of nonsense is, why would you be snoring an kicking me like a football while you are asleep" Linda and I were the Tom and jerry of the house we yell and fight every blessed day and I replied her " shO! U no dey do the one wey worse pass dah one, Nawa for u sef, e be like sey dem send you mak u come they spoil person mood abi?" I left the room and entered the bathroom in anger.

It was just 8pm, mum was back form work, she had been the bread winner alongside my elder sister Seun since my father's death 4 years ago when he died after battling a kidney problem. Ever since then things were not as they used to be. "Sandra" she called me in a low stressed tone, I ran from the room to meet her when she told me she had sent my acceptance fee to a cousin in the school to pay for me which she said has been done. The next statement that she uttered was that she would accompany me to the school next Monday to get a hostel for me where I would stay to complete my registration. Deep inside me I was very sad when I heard she would be following me. Am nineteen years of age and my mum still follows me around, I replied her with a sad tone saying "OK no problem" along side a fake smile to accompany it. I do that when am not satisfied I call it 'Oju aye'. I went back to my room and thought about university life as a free world and I couldn't wait for Monday to come so I can experience how it feels to be free.

The journey

My name is Abraham Susan, they say your real life starts the moment you are admitted into the University, this is my story.

She immediately started singing praises to God and tears of joy filled her face and she told me to go to bed and we would discuss about the next step the next day.




It was was Friday morning , I opened my eyes and I was so happy not until my angry sister Linda came into the room dressed in her school uniform, Linda is in ss2 and a science student. Yelling at me "what sort of nonsense is, why would you be snoring an kicking me like you were in a football match while you are asleep". Linda and I were the Tom and jerry of the house we yelled and quarrelled each other every blessed day and I replied her " shO! U no dey do the one wey worse pass dah one, Nawa for u sef, e be like sey dem send you mak u come they spoil person mood abi?" I left the room and entered the bathroom in anger.

It was just 8pm, mum was back form work, she had been the bread winner alongside my elder sister Seun since my father's death 4 years ago when he died after battling a kidney problem. Ever since then things were not as they used to be. "Sandra" she called me in a low stressed tone, I ran from the room to meet her when she told me she had sent my acceptance fee to a cousin in the school to pay for me which she said has been done. The next statement that she uttered was that she would accompany me to the school next Monday to get a hostel for me where I would stay to complete my registration.

Am nineteen years of age and my mum still follows me around, I replied her with a sad tone saying "OK no problem" along side a fake smile to accompany it. I do that when am not satisfied I call it 'Oju aye'. I went back to my room and thought about university life as a free world and I couldn't wait for Monday to come so I can experience how it feels to be free.

It was Monday already, the weekend was so fast as if it read my mind, I had already packed all my things to the extent that I left only my old clothes in the wardrobe alongside a lot foodstuffs with me to sustain me for the whole semester. I did not sleep all through the night to show how excited and curious I was to get to school, I couldn't wait to b free and make some decisions alone and at the same time with the mind set of graduating with nothing less than a first class degree( I know every fresher desires dat).Linda and Seun came to the room and for the first time in forever Linda told me she was going to miss me, I was touched and we cried. Sis Seun as I called her gave me some advice and told me to face my studies well and not to follow bad gangs, to be realistic I was bored when she was saying it not until when my mum came in to make matters worse then I wished a time machine was real, the only thing I remembered was Linda's facial expression. It was exactly 8am when my mum and I left the house, we boarded a cab to the park where we boarded a bus going to Ago-iwoye. Seeing the busy streets of Ketu and people hawking including little childeren who ought to be in school, what caught my attention was a little boy not more than seven years of age begging for alms I was so deep in pity and at the same time enjoyed the sweet breeze for before one aboki pushed a barrow filled with rotten refuse spoilt the air. "Won tun de Oo" said a woman just of my mother's age as she closed the window next to her and covered her nose with a handkerchief. The bus we boarded was filled with freshers like me and most of the were with their mum or dad so I felt a little relieved about the idea of my mum following me to school. The last passenger was a short little guy not more that sixteen years of age, when I saw him sitting I thought he came with his mum or dad but to my surprise he was alone. I was still surprised what a young guy like that will be doing alone when the bus took off.

"Sandra! Sandra!" my mother yelled at me, opening my eyes like a new born baby seeing smiling faces but in my own case it was different my mum was frowning her face at me. "Will you get down we are in Ago-iwoye", the expression on my face was 'so fast Nawa oh when person dey enjoy sleep', I was enjoying the breeze that I did not know when i dozed off. The bus stopped at new Ago-garage from there we took a bus to PS, the bus was just #30 per head, I was still surprised at the price because when I came to write my post utme exams I came with my uncle directly from lagos not until I spotted the young guy that boarded the same bus with us and was still wandering what he came to do. We got to the school and we met a man who used his car to take us around the school and where I am to head to for my registration. His name wa Dr. Saliu a lecturer in the department of political science, I used to hear about him and all I knew was that he was my mum's friend. He drove us out of the school and stopped in front of a two storey building that was supposed to be a hostel off campus. It was filled with self-contain rooms, the top floor was for guys while the first and second floor was for the ladies.

"Good afternoon o" said a man in his late thirties who was supposed to be the gate keeper. "Good afternoon" Mr saliu replied. "Sorry who Una dey find" the gate keeper said. My mum then told him she was the one who rented room 30 for her daughter and he reluctantly allowed us in. As we entered the hostel I saw girls some in bum shorts and some preparing to go out, the greeted as we passed by them until we got to room 30 which was on the 2nd floor. We opened the door and to my surprise the room has been furnished to my taste, for the first time in forever my mum got me. I went to Mr saliu's car to bring my stuffs and all the girls were just smiling at me, I heard some saying "omo see fresh fish", I wasn't bothered about what that meant. After arranging my stuffs I cooked jollof rice and served it with fried meat that my mum kept in my foodstuff. After the meal my mum and Mr saliu left the hostel, I escorted them to the car, my mum waved goodbye with tears on her face and I smiled in return forming big girl. When I got back to my room I cried and I missed home a lot. I got over it and prepared for the next day my first day at school.

***********


The journey of a thousand miles they say starts in one day. My journey of a thousand miles started when I locked my room door preparing to go to school.
With memories of my home still fresh in my head, I heard the rooster crow, Alas it was morning. I got up said my morning prayers and got dressed for school, I took cornflakes to hold me for the time being since I wanted to get to school early cos I overheard some staylites last night saying the queue was always long and to complete your first verification you had to come early. I got to school exactly 7:19 and I met 10 people ahead of me, someone tapped me and to my greatest surprise it was the young guy we boarded the bus together. "Excuse me, are you the last on the queue? He asked "yes" I replied asap like someone who was deep in thought. "Am Oyewole Adewale, newly admitted student of mass communication, he added. "Am Abraham Susan Sandra, but u can just call me susan" I replied formally. "Sorry what course?" he asked. "Mass communication" I said. We talked and I couldn't believe he would be my first friend, I later discovered we were age mates but due to his small appearance I underestimated his age. The admission officer for my faculty arrived exactly 7:55. After my first verification, Wale who was more familiar with the school environment due to the pre-degree programme he enrolled before given admission, took me to some places and when I was hungry we left for Motion Ground, wow! It was worthy of the name. Motion ground was a very busy place in the school where snacks, drinks, recharge cards, phones, foods were sold and there where a lot of shops that are into cyber cafe business to my greatest surprise there was also a game centre, boutique, salon, cobblers shops shops a few to mention I enjoyed the view alongside wale and my cway nutrimilk and doughnut it was really fun. Wale and I got so close that I started liking him, we departed about 12pm and I left for my hostel.
"Konigba junction wa oo" I cried out and alighted from the bus and trekked a little further until I came to a sign board which says 'Welcome to Posh hall'. Posh hall was the name of my hostel. As I entered the gate, I did not anyone in the compound. It did not bother me because I had no issue with them just a hi hi relationship. I entered the passageway all I could hear was different hip hop music as if they where in a speaker contest and as I got to my floor I perceived some sort of odour but I was not sure of what it was and seeing flames I guessed it would be weed. I wasn't sure of my answer not until a tall robust lady came out of her room and called me "hello sister" she said. "Sorry are u calling me" I replied with fright written all over me. I got closer to her she introduced her self has Dolapo a 400lvl English student, "Am, so sorry I called you. I know you must have being perceiving some strange scent for a while now" she said bringing out a white thin rolled paper from her pocket. She lit it and puffed the air into my face and asked "Is the scent familiar?" I replied with disgust "yes". "This is called SK"she replied,"will you like to try it?" she asked without replying her I ran to my door and opened my room and locked my self inside. It was my first time seeing a lady smoking even better than a guy like that was her talent. All that flashed through my mind was thick air coming out of Dolapo's nose and mouth, I was so tensed I did not know what to do until my phone rang. It was Sis Seun, I did not know if to pick it or not, I gathered my courage and I picked the call. She asked if I was enjoying the school in general, I just told her "yes" my yes was so sharp so as to avoid boring talks from her.
"Kpom Kpom kpom" I heard a knock on my door, at first I was frightened all my mind went to Dolapo coming back to deal with me. "Who is that?" I asked scared. Then I headed a strange voice "Please can I see you for a sec?" the stranger added. I reluctantly opened the door all I saw was a lady in her early twenties on a purple top, a black long Caribbean skirt, a pair of old slipper and a scarf tied to her head. From I look I knew she was an SU( a name give to real believers), she immediately stretched a flier to me, i went through it and it was about a student fellowship programme which holds every Tuesday by 5pm. Wait a second! It's tuesday and it's almost five, "Sorry please can i know you more?" she asked "i am Abraham susan,a newly admitted student of mass communication" I added with utmost joy, "well am Adejoye kemi, a 300lvl student of psychology and I stay in room 25. Would you love to go to the fellowship with me?" she asked. Without wasting no time I agreed and changed my outfit to a more decent one.

We got outside the hall and took a bike, she told him we were heading to RCF at chips, I was wowed with the distance and price when she handed the driver a #50 note. We got to the church, it was written boldly on a sign board "Welcome to the Redeemed Christian Fellowship Ago-iwoye. I was still reading what was written on the board before I heard my name from afar "susan! Susan!" wow! It was wale again. "How did you know this place?" he asked, "a hall mate of mine brought me here" I answered with joy written all over my face. We both talked and entered the church to take our seats.
I was enjoying the praise and worship section before I noticed the student pastor moving to the alter. He prayed and after that he started preaching on a topic "the right part". He talked as if he knew a lot of freshers where present there. The whole service lasted for two hours and everyone departed. Kemi and I got home exactly 7:48pm and we both went to our rooms. My phone was ringing, oh! It was my mum. I picked her call and she told me she had deposited ten thousand naira to my account, I thanked her and asked about everyone, I also spoke with Linda and she told me she was missing me though I was just laughing through out our conversation. As I dropped my phone Light was restored and as I plugged my phone to the charger I got another call from Wale. I was very happy, our conversation lasted for 25 minutes and he asked me if we could do mid-night call since we were both etisalat subscribers, I disagreed because I don't like the idea of being awake late at night. I told him we could chat and send voice notes which he agreed and we did until I dozed off.

Chapter 2

"Weytin they do this one, e be like say u dey mad abi" was what I heard that woke me up. I rushed to my door and open it so as to do 'amebo' I saw Dolapo and a slim girl shouting at each other, I was so focused on the fight that I forgot I had to go and pay my school fees at iya alaje's place. Iya alaje was the woman that was in charge of the POS machine used in the school to pay all fees that had to with the university. The only fee she was not in charge of was the departmental and faculty fee and the queue was always long. My phone beeped, when I checked it, it was etisalat reminding me of my debt of #100 "Nawa o, Una Don cum again. Thcheew shey I say I no go pay ni" I said angrily and I couldn't believe I missed some part of the ongoing action because of a useless text message until I saw the time it was 10:56. The next word that uttered from my mouth was "Chineke" I rushed into my bathroom to have my bath and I was done with everything around 11:25. I took my ATM card and I planned to withdraw #2000 when I get to school since it was the five days market, my first soup alone. I had written a list the previous day of what my first soup would contain. I took a cab to school which was #50, I later learnt that it was those who live in ago that pay #30 while we that live in Konigba paid #50. I got to school and the queue was not much, lucky me, I noticed the queue was divided into two which I later got to know that the queue I was on was for freshers while the other queue was for staylites. Still waiting for my turn two ladies dressed in the same ankara outfit but different styles came to my back and asked for the the last on the queue. I reluctantly said 'yes'. The girls were talking about the short queue today and I joined them. " what's your name?" one of them asked, "call me sandra" I replied I later got to know their names where tobi and sola but they were accounting students and were also freshers. We talked like we knew each other since childhood.

After paying our school fees we exchanged phone numbers and departed I was filled with ecstasy that I finally had friends. I boarded a bus going to Ago-garage since that was the place that the 5days market was always held. It was the heartbeat of Ago-woye, busy but not compared to ordinary streets in lagos. As I entered the market it was noisy as women and men where trying to advertise what was in their stalks. There were different stalks, shops and a building for butchers. I saw a lady asking for #100 pepper and to my greatest surprise it was much. Without wasting no time, I hurriedly went to the stalk where she was and requested for the replica of what she bought (smart bae). I bought two big Titus fish for #300, #300 meat and #100 kpomo when I heard it was #20 per one. As I wanted unzip my wallet my phone fell down. It was like a thunderbolt when I saw a guy's hand over mine trying to pick the phone with me. "Sorry I wanted to help" he said with a huge smile that hanged on his face like a baby clinging to his father's feet. "No problem" I replied, "Am Daniel and you are?". Honestly the guy was cute and I was astonished when he asked the question. "Am susan" I replied. "What can a sexy bae like you be doing in the market all alone in this hot sun without no dude all by your side?". I knew he was attracted to my curves and pretty face but I replied him "am doing exactly what you are doing all alone". He followed me as I got some few stuffs and he showed me some places I could get some stuffs. We exchanged phone numbers and departed.

When I got home, I met some of my hall mates doing their regular activity (smoking). I later got to know that the guys in my hall were involved in yahoo yahoo and some of the girls where ashis(prostitutes) while some just drink and smoke and few of them, including me were decent. I greeted them as I passed by and I entered my room. After cooking and eating I sat on my bed thinking about daniel's face not until his call entered, I was really awed and I felt he was reading my mind. I picked up the phone and we talked for just 2 minutes, I haven't dropped my phone before wale called and asked if i was online. Whatsapp was really my thing, there I chatted with wale and Daniel the rest of the day. I was amazed I did not see my mum or sis calling me today and I told my self "it's like the already know am a big girl"
"Work, work, work, work, work" my phone was ringing, it was shola. All that came to my mind was why would she be calling me at 10pm. I picked the call and she was panicking, her voice was not stable "susan please where is your house located" she said, without wasting no time I directed her and asked what was the problem. "Our street is been raided by thieves" she said introducing tears in it. I told her to cut the call and look for a bike. She got to my house at 10:48pm with tobi, both sweating profusely and panting heavily like someone who just finished a marathon race. I gave them water and allowed them rest. After some minutes the explained the whole story and I told them they could stay at my place till the weekend since it was Thursday and they agreed. I served them the remaining rice and they ate gratefully. We all slept on my big bed that could contain a family of four. Tobi and Sola slept first while I was busy chatting with wale and Daniel until I dozed off. Daniel was a 200lv English student, he seemed to b a nice person and we chatted so deep that I started developing feelings for him.

****************

"Somebody help me!" I shouted as some unknown ladies were chasing me around with broken bottles and machetes as they shouted "leave our friend's boyfriend". I slipped and fell down and I was about to be hacked when I shouted "Blood of jesus" and I was back to life. "What happened?" my friends asked together, "thank God it was a dream" I said still panting heavily like it was real. I narrated the dream to them and we prayed about it.
It was Monday morning, lectures were to start today. Still frightened about the dream, I was not really freaked about the day. Tobi and shola were to leave today. We dressed and got to school exactly 7:55, before we got to the lecture theatre the lecturer was already present. We had GNS(general studies) at LLT2, the lecture theatre was very big and spacious no doubt it was a large lecture theatre. GNS101 was on when we got to the class, the lecturer was a fat man with pot belly, he dressed corporate. The class lasted for an hour and we also had GNS 103 and 105. After the class, a tall dark guy made an announcement that all mass com student should meet at the back of the LT. We met to write attendance there I saw Wale and departed with him waving goodbye to Shola and Tobi since I had my departmental courses next.
I was with wale through out the lecture sessions. We went to motion ground to get snacks and drinks after the whole lecture for the day was over. I went for doughnut and cway nutri milk as usual while he took eggroll and Fanta. I was pressed at a point so wale and I went back to the departmental building together, there I saw Daniel hugging a lady, Wow! "Is this guy a flirt?" was the first question I asked myself. I ignored the ongoing scene and I left for the toilet. I was sad to see that Daniel did not recognise my presence. As I wanted to leave the department, I heared someone calling my name. It was Daniel, the next thing I felt was a hug, Wow! "Was wale reading my mind?" I asked myself again. Before wale could leave me Daniel was already gone, I did not bother myself about him. "What was that for?" I asked wale, he smiled and held my hands "don't worry let's go home". We left for wale's house together, I followed him since he insisted I must know where he stayed. We got to wale's hall exactly 5:27pm, he also lived in a self contain, I wasn't surprised about that since he was using an Iphone 6. We entered his room, it was painted in orange and pink and I asked why he chose pink. "That was my late mum's favourite colour" he replied smiling, I got up and held his hands "it's OK, I also lost my dad" I said. "When was that?" he asked with his mouth widely opened. "Four years ago and you?" I added, "she died last easter" he said with a low tone. I hugged him and he threw his hands all over my waist. "Susan, I want to tell you something" he said, "Go on" I replied asap. "Emmm, susan, I must confess you are a beautiful lady and since the first day i set my eyes on you I felt love again" he said holding me so tight. "Susan, I love you and I want us to date" he added. I wanted to let go but I was enjoying his warmth and his well built chest I never noticed due to his choice of clothes. "You are not saying anything? Will you think about it?" he said looking straight into my eyes. I was dumbfounded, I gathered myself and said yes and all I felt was his lips, hmmmm he was kissing me. I just stood like a log of wood while he did the kissing since that was my first kiss. "Stop" I said retrieving my lips form his mouth. "Am so sorry, I was so lost" he said with guilt, "no problem, at least I got my first kiss from you" I said very shy and with my head facing the ground. He hugged me from the back and asked when I would be going home, "after cooking for you" I said, "wow! Iyen na nice" he added smiling. He had cooked chicken soup and vegetable soup the previous day, so I warmed it and served it with poundo yam. We ate together, after the meal I washed the plates and told him I was about to leave. It was just 7pm when he got a bike for me, "thank you, good night, I will give you a call and don't forget me" he said "OK" I replied him smiling as the bike left, I turned to check him and noticed he was staring at me until I was out of his sight.
I got home fifteen minutes after seven, there was no power supply so I put my torch on. Wale called me and we talked till he was out of airtime. We later moved to whatsapp, I also chat with Daniel, tobi and shola, I was blasting Daniel about his behaviour today when my mum's call came in. "Susan, Nawa for you o, so u could not call me ehnn, and I have been trying your phone since it was saying switched off, do u want to kill me?" she said angrily, PHCN restored the light and I smiled saying to myself "ope o". "Mum it was the network there was no network today" omo see lie. She later calmed down and apologised for shouting on phone. After the call I went back to whatsapp to finish what I was doing. I rounded up all my chat and charged my Tecno H5 while I read my notes and made a reading timetable for my study. I went to bed some minutes to midnight after saying my prayers and ironing my clothes.

******************
"Our matriculation is next week" tobi said overjoyed. "And so? What's so special about matric that you are jumping like a kid?" shola replied her and it led to a long argument. "Will you two shut up and help me think straight" I said angrily. "What are you pondering about miss?" shola asked "Ok" I said followed with a deep sigh, "Wale asked me out, though I have feelings for him" I added. "Ehnn what's the big deal say yes now since you have feelings for him" tobi replied. "You don't understand, the problem is that there is this also this guy his name his Daniel he is also interested in me and I also like him" I said confused."that's a though one" tobi said. "My mind goes with wale because I don't really trust Daniel" I said. "Just follow your mind girlfriend" shola replied patting my left shoulder. "I will give that a shot, thanks buddies " I said smiling. It was a hot Saturday afternoon and the first day in the month of march. I joined them as we discussed on how our matriculation would be when I received a call from my mum. "Hello sandra" she said, "Am fine ma and you" I replied her in a low tone. "Am OK, when is that your matric self?" she asked with curiously. "Next Monday ma" I answered. "OK we are coming to your school" she said. The expression on my face was 'what!'. "I hope you guys are not sleeping over?" I asked with a gloomy face."No" she replied. I was so happy, I had a dinner party to attend with wale that night. "But mum, I don't have a new gown that I will wear and my hairstyle is rough and old" I said in a demanding tone."I will send you money for the hair, and as for the gown, what of that your gown you used for your sss3 graduation ceremony? She asked. "Haba mummy! What sort of thing is that, how do you expect me to wear such a thing, gown wey Don jump me. Am buying a new one and its 5k o" I said angrily. "Ok I have heard you, let me call you in the evening" she said and I ended the call. "Yehh I can't stop laughing ooo" tobi said in a whining tone. "Weytin do you, you wey na your mama suit them say make you come carry go slim fit for house, thcheeww" shola said angrily. Shola and I laughed at tobi, though she was vexed but we did not care.

Kpom! Kpom!. "Who is there?" I asked as the knock brought silence. "It's me Daniel" he said. "Come in" I said. He came in smiling, "hello girls" he said. "Hi" my friends answered him. He came closer to me, "so you won't greet me abi, are we fighting ni?" he asked. "No oo, am just not happy" I said. "Why? What happened? Who made my queen angry?" he asked. "Who is your queen?" I smiled and he smiled back. We were still chatting when my friends told me they were leaving. Daniel asked them to stay back that he was just going to ask them to follow us to B3. I noticed that tobi's face was like 'say yes shola pls'. They agreed and we went to B3. B3 sports cafe was a club, everything about it was lovely, that was my first time there so I was not really free. We sat at the VIP corner, I noticed there was also a VVIP section. Daniel bought each one of us a plate of pepper soup and a hollandia yoghurt per head. We all had a nice time, I knew he was doing this just to gain my attention but my mind was not there at all. At that point I had made up my mind to date wale.

We left B3 exactly 6:30pm after receiving a call from Wale who told me he was waiting for me at my place. I had planned to give wale his answer on our matric day and still play hard to get for now. "Where were u guys?" wale asked "we are so sorry wee went to see a friend who was sick" sola lied. I was so happy with what she said because I have been thinking of what to tell him. He did not complain and we both discussed privately. "Am going home" wale said happy. "What happened "my sister is coming back form Germany on Monday and I have to be there. there added. "Ok, but you could have called me on phone to inform me" I replied. "On phone ke! I did not know how I will tell you, I don't feel like leaving you alone" he said worried. "Ahaa! my friends are here now I will be fine" I added. "Are you sure?" he said in a low tone. "Yes, but I will miss you" I answered. "I will too" he said hugging me so tight. We went in to meet my friends and we escorted him to the gate. "Wow! Is that wale?" sola asked. "Yes, any p?" I asked. "He is OK now, susan hat guy loves you o don't lose him o" she added with a warning tone. We went back to my room, cooked and laughed all night. Daniel called and we spoke for a short while, I was expecting wale's call and was about to sleep when he called an we did mid-night call since it was 12:48am when he called. The session was fun and I enjoyed every bit of it. Wale was still not happy with the notion of leaving me behind, but I re-assured him and gave him the hope that I would be fine. The call ended when it was 4am and I dozed off some minutes later.

Chapter 3
"Happy matriculation" I said to myself is I woke up from my sleep. I checked the time on my phone it was just 7:21am, I hurriedly got down from my bed and went straight to the bathroom. I was done with everything when my mum called that I should join her downstairs. As I cat walked out of the gate I was surprised. I saw my mum, sisters, uncle and my cousins. I screamed covering my mouth, seeing those faces again was a the greatest matriculation gift one could get. It was just 8:20am and the matriculation ceremony was to start by 9am, the whole family insisted on checking out my room and we all went together. At a point I wished my dad was alive but I thanked God that he provided for my mum to take good care of us alongside a good extended family so we won't feel that he wasn't there. "Wow! I love your room especially the bed" Linda said jumping on the bed. I offered everyone sachet water each. We all talked and I shared my little experience in the school. We left for the school at 8:40, we got there not quite long. I had to enter LLT2 alone while the rest of the family were in the car since only the freshers were allowed in.

After the matriculation ceremony, I saw my friends and the introduced me to their parents and I also did the same. My mum served food to some of my course mate their parents where absent and some other people that I never knew. I searched stylishly for wale but I did not see his brink light. I had been unable to see him since he came back, I tried his number but he was not picking his call. I was still worried when someone held my hand from the back "happy matriculation baby" holy jesus! It was Daniel. I was avoiding him because he also invited me to a dinner party tonight but I refused.
We chatted on a normal zone and he left. I took pictures with my family, friends and course mates. I was about to take a personal when I noticed someone joined me when the camera man said "say cheese baby". OMG! It was wale, I was so happy but I formed angry for him for a while. "Happy matriculation" he said, "compliments" I said in an angry tone. "What is it?" he asked. "What is what? You left me alone since Saturday and I was calling your number since yesterday but you choose not to answer. Well no problem" I said faking an angry face. "Am sorry, I was with my dad. You know what I want you to meet my dad" he said. "What for?,am not going o" I said shocked but deep inside me I was like 'wow! This guy truly loves me'. "Please now, I have told him about you including my big sis that also came back" he said smiling. "Oh! Sorry I forgot. How is your big sis?" I asked in a caring tone. "She is fine, oya let's go jorh" he said. "You have to meet my family too" I said. "Ok let's go" he said smiling.

After introducing wale to everyone as my friend, we left to see his family. When spotted them, what they wore told the world how expensive they were. I greeted them and i exchanged contacts with his family. I returned to my family after telling wale to come and pick me by 8pm. We left for my hostel at 5pm and I was dropped at my gate and they all left for lagos since it was getting late. I was very happy when I got to my room. I got a sum of ten thousand naira from my mum and my uncle. "Yehh where is the envelope wale's dad gave to me?". I searched everywhere for it and saw it in my purse. I opened it and was shocked when I saw a suprising ten thousand naira in it and a note that says ' Am sorry it's small but please accept it with gratitude. Signed father-in-law. "Father-in-law ke!" I said to myself laughing. From there I knew the man wanted me to date his son.
I called wale when it was 7:30pm and he told me he was on his way. He got to my hostel not quite long after I called and we both left for the dinner party. It was a dinner party to welcome all freshers of mass-communication. I saw familiar faces and some guys who were waiting for their dates to arrive. We sat at table 10, after sitting, the next thing I saw was Daniel sitting next to us with a lady. He saw me and I smiled at him. The expression on his face clearly told he felt busted. I concentrated on my date. We ate, drank and danced, the event was graced my Mc drey. After the party we left for wale's house. I was really tired and was pulling off my heels when he asked "Sandra why are you killing me?". "In what way?" I also asked surprised. "HmMm see you, as if you don't know what am talking about"he added."i don't understand you ooo"i said as he grabbed my waist and whispered into my ears "will you date me?". I smile and was shy to reply him. After so much pestering I said yes to him. Immediately he kissed me and hugged me so tight. We were so in the mood that I thought he would request for sex and to my greatest surprise he stopped and told me he loved me and was not planning to have sex with me. He told me he was planning to keep me and hopes I don't let him down. In the middle of the romantic conversation I dozed off on his chest.

***********************
"Sandra wake up" wale said tapping my right arm. "Good morning" I said yawning. "You must have enjoyed your night beacause you slept like a baby" he added smiling. I did not reply him. It was a Wednesday morning and we had no lectures. I prepared I white rice and stew from the pepper I bought close by. I left wale's hall at exactly 12pm. I got to my hall and saw that a meeting was going on and I was asked to join. The meeting was about the upcoming hall party and we were asked to donate 5k each. During the meeting I. Was asked to introduce myself since I was a fresher, I also me some freshers. The meeting lasted for half an hour and everyone left for their various rooms. I got to my room, read some while and I dozed off.
Knock knock!. "Who is there" I said waking up from my sleep. "It's me daniel" he said. 'What does he wants again tcheew' I asked myself. "Hello angel, how are you doing" he said. "Am fine" I said in an un serious tone. "Susan am very sorry for last night, it's not what you think" he said. "I understand you Ok" I added. " Ok, who was that guy you came with yesterday?" He asked. "Who does he look like to you?" I asked. "HmMm, don't tell me you are dating wale because if you are, susan you are making the biggest mistake of your life" he said with pity. "How do you know his name and what do you mean?" I asked so tensed. "Bye" he said walking out of my room. "Daniel wait!" I shouted but he did not turn back. I was no longer myself, I felt threatened. I was about to enter my room when Dolapo came to meet me and asked what the problem is. "Don't worry it's a private issue" I replied. "You see its normal but am not really what you think I am" she added. "Then what are you?" I asked. "Babe you see, smoking might be my bad side but am a good adviser when it comes to relationships, so feel free to tell me your problems" she said. "I don't have any problem" I added. "Ok, it's normal, I know you are not free with me and you don't trust me, but feel free to meet me if you are interested, bye" she said closing the door.
I took a deep breath and made a heavy sigh. I was so confused. I called Daniel countless times but he was not picking up. I was so deep in thought that I never knew when tobi and sola came in. "Babe! Babe!" they echoed tapping my left shoulder. "Yes" I said shocked. They asked what I was thinking about and I explained the whole story to them. "Babe, the best thing to do is to keep distance from both of them" sola said. "I wish I can, but how can I avoid my boyfriend?" I asked. "When did you say yes?" tobi asked. "Yesterday night" I added. "This is a though one oh, susan you self it's too early for all this" Shola said disappointed.
The girls left after the advice session. I was advised to watch wale and daniel's movement and not to tell wale about daniel's previous action. I continued my life as usual and I pretended nothing never happened. I was about to sleep when I remembered the bad dream I had the first time my friends slept over at my place and related it to wale and Daniel until I dozed off.
Open this door! "The robbers said" I was covered in sweat as thieves raided my hall. I hid my laptop and phone inside my empty drum in the kitchen. I was so scared I felt like being swallowed by the earth instantly. I was praying when my door was busted. "Lie down" one of them said cocking his gun. I melted with my face facing down. They searched everywhere in the room and found nothing. "Where is your phone?" they asked. I brought out my small nokia phone it was dead though and they asked me to keep it. "Let's go this one no get better thing" one of them said. "Nawa oo! Poor people wey dey live for self con" one of them said followed by a hiss as they slammed my door. I waited for everything to die down before calling my mum and wale. My mum was so happy I wasn't hurt or raped. It rained heavily and I was so cold and still shocked about the event. Knock knock knock. "Who is that" I said with my voice shaking. "It's wale" he said. I rushed to the door and hugged him. "How are you" wale said dripping in rain water. "You got soaked because of me?" I asked him. "I can sacrifice my whole life all because of you" he said smiling. The cold breeze was strong, I gave him my towel, my boxer and my jalabia. "So how are you feeling now" I asked him. "I was not feeling any better until I saw that you were ok. Susan come and spend the rest of the week with me until everything has died down" he said wit fright written all over his face. "No, don't worry am safe here" I said. "You don't understand they might be back" he added. "Ok I will, if that's what you want" I agreed. I made hot tea for the both of us and I told him how the previous event took place. He. Held my hands and we talked about out lives and future if hopefully we would still be together. I rested my head on his right shoulder and was about to sleep when PHCN restored the light. I searched for my PC everywhere until I remembered I hid it in my drum. I turned it on and told wale I had a movie to show him. It was an Indian love film 'kuchi kuchi hota hai' (every time I see you something happens in my heart). Wale was not a fan of Indian movies but I noticed he loved this particular movie I dozed off while he continued watching the movie.
