hmmmm.. Yea, that's right. Ruby, work on your descriptions just as chima just said, most of us didn't attend futo and we don't know how the lecture halls, lodges, church and even the characters look like, so you should help us to describe the environment, scenes, characters so that we can easily have a clearer image of the whole thing in our heads.

For example - 'rumour had it that prof Iyke was a man in his late fifties but I doubted it because he looked far younger. He was as robust as a Christmas turkey and could never be caught wearing corporate clothing as he was always on different native attires which were so stylish in nature that I even considered dropping all my western clothing(corporate and casuals) and adapt to his mode of dressing'.

*****
Its monday morning, normally I hate mondays especially if I've had an exciting weekend. The kind of weekend you wouldn't want to end where there is partying, booze and more booze. That sort of weekend after which you wake up with a hang-over( throbbing pain in the head and everything just seem to piss you off the morning after). Then imagine adding lectures to that feeling. F.U.T.O is built in highly dispersed community- like setting. The lecture halls are so far apart from each other, so there's need to adapt to the intense 'nomadic' way of life to meet up with all your lectures. As a lady, add hang-over to lectures plus lots of treking under the scorching sun wearing heels. Arrghhhh!!!

This particular monday morning was nothing like that. Infact, I woke up feeling elated, I could even afford to dance one of my 'victory- dances' . I had hyper-energy( I think I could have lifted a house or car if I had wanted to that morning). As I prepared for school, I hummed the lyrics of fifteen by Taylor Swift. Deedee kept looking at me like I was going mad or something. I was in a good mood and would't let her spoil it. How often does a 'p-dite'(the predegre students are called that in F.U.T.O) get to make an elderly lecturer in his late fifties speechless? Not so often my dear and I planned to savour every minute of it.

I took extra time applying my makeup and picking out my clothes. Deedee got tired of waiting for me and had to leave. According to her , 'if I wait until you finished, we would get to school just in time as all the lectures are over for the day'. I could careless of what she thought, afterall I knew my way around.

I dressed up, looked at the mirror to see if any last adjustment had to be made. As always, I had outdone myself. I looked like I belonged in pages of glossy magazines. I was 'making brains'.
I stopped a bike going 'inside school'. Deedee's lodge is a little bit far from school. She stays in one of the neighbouring villages near the school called 'Eziobodo'. The village is like one of those under developed places that wouldn't just improve. It had poor drainage system leading to horrible roads. When it rains there, people had to literally swim some parts before they could get to their lodges. Well, Deedee's place wasn't so deep into the village. The lodge was called 'Glo' lodge and I think for emphasis the owner painted it green.

The bike I entered was stopped at the 'old register office' by security men on duty saying they were instructed not to let bikes run in the premises during school hours. The old registry is barely ten minutes walk from Deedee's place . I was so sure the bike man knew this before I entered his bike, he sensed I was probably a novice since every student knew about the law(every one but me). I looked at the bike man scornfully and asked;
'how much?'

'ah ah, the price no dey change na. Na hundred naira' he said

' you well so, or na because I ask you the price you come double am? Na thirty naira I wan even pay you because you no carry me reach where i dey go' I said

When the bike man heard this he got aggressive.

'na me stop for you front or na u stop my bike, you go pay me my money o' he said

'oya no shout na, na fifty naira be the normal price and na wetyn i fit pay' I said as I stretched out my hand to pay him. He dragged the money from my hand and zoomed off raising dust as he left.

'nope, not letting it get to me. I'll not be upset' I said trying to calm myself down.

I walked the remaining distance down to the C.C.E (Centre for Continuing Education) building where my lectures held and lecture hall 2 was were I was supposed to take the lectures. The school park is near the building so I could hear students talking from there as I walked towards it.

It was 8:15 when I got there and the lecture hall was already full in time for the first lecture which was supposed to begin by 8:30. The lecture hall was so occupied that students were sitting on the window ledge. There weren't any louver blades attached to the window frame, just a big open hole in the wall representing the window.


As I started to walk into the class,I felt intense heat from having so many people crammed into the lecture hall that i turned back and stood at the door.
'where did all this people come from? They were not all here last week' I said

' A new list came out during the weekend making a total of two thousand predegree students' one random guy standing close to me said

'really? So we are that many? how many will they admit?' I said

The random guy replied;
I dnt know but am not bordered, my aunt works in the senate building and has promised that I'll get in this year'

'your own beta o' I said

He laughed then said;
'my name is Amos but my friends call me famous'

'I'm Jenny....Jenny Bond I said Jokingly. He laughed harder this time and said;
'you have a good sense of humour, Jenny. Errmm, can I have your number so we could hook up sometime?

she alone knows the storyline. I think it will be better if will allow her add what she want. The things listed above might not be part of the story.
