Caught In The Moment-Episode 1


Unlike every story book I guess you’ve read..mine is a bit complicated..that it sometimes makes me cry and laugh alike.. Well as I earlier explained..I escaped..with the little savings I lagos without directions..for
tunately, I had my phone with me so I called up my aunty who stayed in Aunty Naomi was not in good terms with my mum..I really wished I knew I just went there with faith
I arrived there at 7pm in the evening,it had rained heavily, I was all wet and shivering..I was ushered in by my cousin bode..he was very tall and huge..I was always scared of him, even when my mom had always assured me he was kindhearted..that was her own view sha; what I saw was Goliath on earth
“Bukky..what is this? Where are you coming from? Where is your mum? Why did you enter the rain?”
Everyone called me Bukky instead of my full name. I had open my mouth, but the question was now more than I was thinking which one to answer seems she noticed my struggle
“Just go and change”
Great! The sentence she was suppose to say
“This way”
Tosin ushered me to her room
“You can change into anything you like in the wardrope”
She seemed nice..we were of the same age range, although we’ve never been that close because of our parents issues
Later that night I explained everything to my Aunty..she was really attentive and I prayed she believed me
“ can stay for a while..but you would have have go back home”
I nodded in agreement..although going back home was the least in my agenda
My dream was to be a fashion was my dream since I was a kid..and I just got admission to Lagos state university to study art..I wasn’t sure my aunty would want to sponsor me..tosin had gotten admission too. Fortunately to the same university
“I got an admission to Lagos state university too..back home”
I opened up to tosin..when she came back home rejoicing about her own admission”
“Really?! That’s great..we would be roommates”
I feigned a smile..I wasnt too sure about that..within minutes she hurried to my Aunty
“Bukky.. It wouldn’t be a bad thing if you both stay together.. But during weekend you would both help me in the shop”
My Aunty said
Wait! Does that mean am actually going to school?! I felt like calling home but I remembered I had broke my sim the moment I entered Lagos..
For a week everything went smooth..until one night when Goliath requested my presence in his room..oluwa help me..what does he want now?
