I cracked my head searching for a good river but couldn't remember any. In desperation i thought of other alternatives.
"A good bush will do" i concluded as i remembered a very large bush, four hostels behind mine. The bush really was at the end of the street. A yet to be developed plot.
_
But i was very unsure of the best time to head to the place. I knew there wasn't a way i could go there without being seen by many students and my movement might draw suspicion due to the sack bag in my possession and if eventually Nmeka's body is found, tongues may talk and i could be caught. I reasoned.
"The only solution was to head out of the school environs with my load perhaps towards the small mechanic village which was fifty naira bus drop away from my lodge, find a good refuse dump site and dispose everything" .
_____
_
Luckily her body wasn't discovered that morning and so by 7:45am, i smashed her phone sim and memory card wrapped the debris in a small nylon before flinging it with the phone back into the sack bag. Soon after i left the lodge with my load and headed towards mechanic village, nervous, shaken but determined.
_
It was very easy to find a burning refuse dump site when i got there. I quickly disposed everything and headed back to my lodge a bit relieved.
All that was left was to sit and wait for the poor girl to be discovered.
_
I kept to myself, acting cool and trying hard not to behave in a way that could draw suspicion. It wasn't easy, i couldn't eat, sleep nor do anything. I was conscious of everything, plus i began seeing things. Strange weird things.
Perhaps it was my imagination, perhaps it was guilt and fear but i truly wasn't myself anymore. I didn't kill the girl but i wronged her spirit. I felt she was everywhere i went, staring at me with her dark eyes.
_
Then she was discovered........................ An early monday cry from one of the cleaners ripped the whole lodge apart.

The sharp cry shook the entire lodge, frightening me tremendously. My heart furiously pounded. The day of reckoning finally has arrived.
_

I waited for few minutes in my room as i tried so hard to compose myself. Just like other students, i had to check out the cause of the cry and noise coming from downstairs. I wished i had travelled, but truly it was very bright of me to stay put in the lodge instead of travelling, because i had to be around in order to follow events and plan ahead. Moreover the hostel was a large one but it never stopped students who lived in it from knowing each other's habit and as i hardly travelled. Who knows i could be suspected.
_
Yes i was so scared that i felt every step i took could lead anyone to suspect me even though i was far from being one of the hostel terrors nor cultists who could easily be suspected as the hand behind such a deadly act.
_
I drank a glass of water before heading out of my room. I slowly headed downstairs, towards where i dumped Nmeka's body days ago. You can't imagine how nervous and scared i was as i slowly made my way to that place.
_
Hundreds of students were already at the staircase when i got there. Students from the neighbouring hostels alike. I greeted some of my neighbours who told me of the terrific dicovery. I pretended to be shocked and forced my way to the front of the crowd.
After a little struggle, i succeeded in getting close to Nmeka's body which was already pulled out from the staircase. The poor girl was now lying just some steps away from where she was originally dumped, looking pale as ever. I drew a bit close as if i was very concerned.
_
"do you know her?" a girl quickly asked me. I turned to see almost everyone staring curiously at me. I swallowed hard with tension. My guilty conscience shook me like an earthquake.
_
"what?" i stammered.
_
"do you know her?" the hostel president asked, before the girl could repeat her question.
_
"hell no. That's exactly what i came to check" i managed to reply, dashing all their hopes.
_
"nobody knows her. She has no I.d or anything" the girl who asked the first question explained, while i shrugged, saying nothing.
The relief i felt as i heard the girl's explanation was quite enormous. I really had feared the question was asked with suspicion.
_
However i still feared the worst was yet to come. I knew there must surely be a scapegoat. A sacrificial lamb who will be blamed for such a horrible crime.
_
Who will it be??.

The school SUG president soon showed up with the school authorities and the police, quickly dispersing everyone.
_


"you can now go on with your various activities, we are here to take charge of the situation. Be rest assured that the person behind this outrageous crime will be caught. If you have any information to share please don't hesitate to bring it to our knowledge. Mind how you talk to the press or better still leave us to do the talking. You are warned" the Dean of students addressed us before we were dispersed.
I returned to my room extremely scared and afraid. I couldn't imagine what the outcome of their investigation will be.
_
I didn't leave my room all through the rest of that day. I simply stayed indoors with my conscience punishing me. I was ready to do anything for my fears to go away.
_
Nmeka's body was taken away later in the afternoon. I couldn't help but peep through my window as an ambulance carried the poor thing away. Yes the time was precisely 3:15pm. I really couldn't imagine what caused the delay in moving a body discovered very early in the morning.
_
However some minutes after her body was taken away. A strange kind of dizziness took over my entire body. It was as if my room was spinning round with me in the center. I lost balance and collasped on my bed, breathing heavily while sweat drenched my body.
I couldn't believe nor understand what was happening. I never experienced such a thing before, but luckily i regained myself some minutes after.
_
I tried hard to think what could have happened, but just couldn't figure out anything. Not only was my eyes now seeing things that never was, the rest of my body has equally joined in the game.
Could Nmeka's spirit be behind this?" i wondered Miserably.
_
"but i didn't kill nobody. It was just an accident. I did what i had to do to save face" i kind of spoke aloud before realising myself.
A sharp knock of my door, quickly notified me of a visitor waiting outside.
_
"was i heard?. Is it the police?" i nervously asked myself as i slugglishly went to my door.

I nervously opened my door and came face to face with the hostel president, a policeman in uniform and the SUG president. I stared at them with panic.
_

"please can we come in?. The officer has some important questions to ask you" the SUG president explained while my heart froze. My guilty conscience was at its worst that moment.
_
I fearfully allowed them into the room, my heart pounding furiously as the policeman took a sharp look round my room before settling down on the only plastic chair i had, while the two students with him stood and stared at me. I knew they all noticed my nervous behaviour.
_
"I'm here to question you as a result of the body discovered in your lodge. The dead girl found under the stairs" The serious looking officer said to me as he brought out a small notebook which he opened.
_
"so what's your name?" he asked. I breathed deeply and looked at the hostel president who nodded to me in agreement. I slowly murmured my name, repeating it twice.
_
"you saw the girl's body right?" the officer asked. I swallowed hard and nodded. Nmeka's image quickly appeared in my head.
_
"yes i saw her" i answered weakly,
_
"do you know her?" he asked, sending my heart flying with the question.
_
"um no, not at all" i replied,
_
"are you sure?" he asked again,
_
"yes i'm sure" i answered,
_
"you mean you have never ran across her even in school premises?" he asked.
_
"yes i'm sure, i havn't seen her anywhere" i answered a bit boldly. He marked something in his book, closed it and stood up.
_
"thanks for your time, but i may be back" he grinned before leaving.
_
I locked my door, fell on my bed and covered my head with a pillow.
"liar, damn you liar" i heard Nmeka's voice scream in my head, sickening me.
_
I laid awake all night, scared and afraid. I was scared of Nmeka's ghost, scared of the police and scared of being discovered.
A very terrible wind equally blew that night as if rain was about to pour, but there came no rain, instead the wind kept making strange noises on my window which seriously terrified me.
_
Early tuesday morning i packed some of my clothes in a small bag and headed to my friend Gideon's lodge. I just couldn't stay all alone in my room anymore.
_
Unfortunately Gideon and his neighbours were all too eager to hear the dead girl's story, especially how she looked, who was being suspected and so on. They wanted to hear everything without knowing that they were upsetting me with their questions.
The more i managed to answer, the more questions they asked to the extent that i almost lost the remaining part of my mind.
_
Early wednesday morning i headed home to be with my surprised parents who were very astonished to see me return home in the middle of the week. I managed to mutter some lousy explanation which i believed they never truly bought.
_
But then it was as if the devil had so much interest in my case, because by 8:15am the next day, the hostel president called me on phone, asking me to show up at the lodge.
_
"The police needs to search your room". He ended up saying.

I read the whole story on your blog but I hope you will improve on it here. For starters bro, you didn't end it well, story line too short and more like an abstract and not the full story.

yeah i know we got a lot to improve on, moreover i don't have much people working with me and we have tons of stories to cover at the same time....
But concerning this particulary story, it's merely a confession from a friend {fan}, but my team edited and expanded it the best they could. Though we never aimed at ending it like a novel just like most people expected. However it makes coolval22.com unique. We turn real life happenings into stories....
With time we will improve very well..
