SHADOWS OF THE GREEN by Bibi




Dedicated to my late Coursemate,Samson. You were a promising young chap but you were led astray. This story is a pure fiction. Names and events are purely fictional. This prosework is not Samson's story, Continue to Rest in Peace bro.






Happy new month Friends
February is my month, the month I was born, the month I graduated from the university. Shoutouts to all februarians..... God bless us all.#irepfeb27th.





Please, I'll prefer to use simple diction and the third person point of view.

CHAPTER ONE
THE BEGINNING

TIWATOPE
She was walking aimlessly towards the school small gate with her new friend, Kayode when she bumped into a clumpsy guy. Tiwatope was a tall, chubby, dark-skinned lady, she was a nineteen-year old innocent girl. It was her first day in The University, She gained admission few weeks back and she resumed that monday, met with Kayode at the faculty, it was her first day in school too. She was a slim outspoken lady, she was an extrovert who talked freely. She had two things in common with Tiwatope, they were both outspoken and they shared the same hostel but different rooms. They had made jest of almost all their classmates from the classrep who brought a box to class, a lady who plaited her hair with a multicoloured attachments. As they were trekking to their hostel outside their the school small gate, they ran into a clumsy guy. Kayode was the first to noticed the guy who was dressed in a baggy black pant trousers, a white shirt, a blue cardigan, a black boot and a black backpack approaching them. She bursted into laughter and drew Tiwalade's attention to the clumsy guy.

"Tee, see your husband" She said pinching Tiwa. They bursted into laughter.




OMOGORIOLA
It was his first day in The University, he resumed three weeks after resumption, after arranging his things in his hostel, he decided to check his department, he sighted two young girl approaching him, he took interest in the chubby lady and decided to approach them, he was wearing a white shirt, a blue trousers, a black pants and carried a black backpack, he had promised to dress well in school since his elder brother had advised he did to aymttract good friends and grades. He heart raced as he approached the two ladies who were laughing so hard that people around them were attracted to their laughter. He was slightly embarrassed but he had to talk to the chubby lady.
"Hello, I'm Gori but you can call me geeboy"he introduced himself. "Nice meeting you" he added quickly, he streched his hand for a handshake but the girl exchanged glances and laughed. He felt embarrassed and turned to leave.
"I am Tiwa, Tiwatope and here is Kayode, my friend." He heard an angelic voice introduced, he turned quickly as the chubby lady stretched her right hand for a handshake. He shook her happily.
"Thanks. I'm a new students admitted to study English Education and I don't know my way around yet, today is my first day in school." He expressed.
"Whao! It means we are in the same faculty. I think your departmental building is beside ours." Tiwa said.
"Can you please take me there or is it far?" He asked
"Yes, it is far and we can't take you here!" Kayode said smiling wickedly. She dragged Tiwatope out leaving Gorilla all alone.
"What was that for?"Tiwa asked when the were some kilometers away
" Don't you see that that rubbish boy was wasting our time."Kayode answered rudely.
"But at least, he's a fresher like us. We supposed to assist him." Tiwatope said
"Tiwa, that boy is not our class moreso, all these boys are looking for lives to destroy and I don't want us to familiarise with any of them." She said.
"But..."
"But what?" Kayode cut in."Are you google map or is that what your parents send you here to do" She eyed her.

Re: Shadows Of The Green by Bibi294(f): 4:38pm On Feb 01, 2017
Goriola got to the hostel in evening looking so exhausted, he arranged his locker, brought out the small stove he brought from home and cooked noodles, Kenneth came in as he was eating, Kenneth was a tall guy compared to Goriola who was short, he was darkskinned and his look was rugged.
"Who u be?" He asked immediately he entered the room.
"I am Goriola but you can call me geeboy"
"Na ken I be. Wetin una dey do for this room?" Ken asked as he joined Goriola, he took a mouthful spoon of Noodles. "Why this thing con get salt like this? Na from river u waka come" he asked swallowing another spoon of noodles.
"This is my room, I guess you are my new partner." Gori said trying to hide his anger. Kenneth was swallowing his fifth spoon of noodles while he hardly took two, he knew the room would be tough coping with Ken.
"Na u b d JJC? Omo, this food no sweet o." He said as he stood up, the food had finished. He dipped his hand into his pocket and brought out a two hundred naira note.
"Use dis money cook concortion, I dey come for night." He dropped the money on the drawer and left.

"What sort of wahala is this? He didn't allow me to eat self. Moreover, any sane person would know two hundred naira cannot cook rice." He soliloquied.

* * * *

Goriola woke up around past four the following morning, took his bath and prepared for lectures. He ate the leftover concortion since Ken never showed up the night before, he got to school few minutes past six, he went into his department and copied the departmental timetable and went into his departmental hall. He sat down till Ten when people were coming in twos, he sat alone,students were trooping in, some were playing, some jisting while some were looking in his direction,laughing. Gori was a clumpsy guy, he was never calm and organised. He was feeling awkward since most of the students' attention was on him. He brought out his bunch of keys and unlock his backpack, the class roared. He saw everybody's attention was on him and he was embarrassed, he brought out his small jotter and started writing a poem. Gori was a great poet, he started writing poems at the age of eight. He would composed a poem for his parents,siblings and friends. He was composing a poem about his "chubby" new friend, Tiwa.
"Why are you so uncomposed? " he heard a lady's voice.He raised his head to see a light skinned girl smiling sheepishly at him.
"Hello." He managed to say.
"You are a new student right?" The girl asked.
"Yes. I resumed yesterday." He replied as he continued with his poem.
"I am Promise, you?"
"Goriola."
"Whao.Do you compose this?" She asked picking his jotter. She went through the jotter and was amazed.
"You will make a great poet."
"Thanks. I want to ask you one question."
"Go ahead."
"Why are they laughing?" Heasked pointing to a group of girls. She smiled.
"Your dress-sense is funny, and you padlocked your school bag." She said smiling hard. He was embarrassed, he buried my head in shame as he remembered Kayode and Tiwa were laughing when he met them.
"Stop locking your bag, no one will steal your poems" she said as she collected his Nokia torchlight phone and typed her number. "Call me" She said as she left his seat.
It was an hectic day, lectures ended by four, he roamed about the faculty looking for his chubby friend. He left for his hostel around six since his search proved infertiled. He was disappointed.
