Even Deborah was tryna persuade me on teaching people I refused, defamation is a bad crime that needed a reprisal of such kind. People wey I dey even bone food dey teach them yesterday just because of one rumour them rubbish and yeye everything wey I do for them. Abeg, I nodey do again. I kept to myself and remained dedicated to my books and friendship with Deborah, that course was one course you can’t wave in my department, if you no pass am you go tadan there.
Some of them that persecuted me were the ones on the front queue shouting Gift give us the secret, nay no. Gift no sabi anything make we go settle the lecturer,
We wrote our examination that semester and many people were sent out of the halls. The man spacing was mad and he brought in brutal aliens as supervisor, any kapgam! you are out! Naomi was sent out, Eva, shall.. was just sweating upadan.
I wrote what I can write and dropped my pen then left the hall. I dey one corner dey vibe with music dey wait for Debby A.K.A my stepmama, I love her fah when Naomi carried her big bu-ttocks swaying left and right to talk to me.
Naomi: Gift, you wicked oh! because of that small thing you carry am for mind allow all coursemates suffer like this, haba where is your church mind?
Me: even Jesus wey die for cross get limit for grace, my dear. Judgment day for nodey, just take this one as your judgment day for wickedness. I hissed waka commot from there,
Deborah came out looking bright and jovial. One of my department nigga stood under the sun till we couldn’t see him anymore after the exam, chiaa! I felt pity, maybe my stance was too harsh. But the question can shock anyone that came into that hall unprepared sha..
That year we finalised it with mommy Deborah’s white wedding. My papa no gree close him thirty-two teeth, Sarah was looking like another bride but was disappointed when the groom didn’t appear, she was on my neck where is your brother thingy.
The year was totally sweet and memorable, I won’t forget that year I spent with my family and my father having a genuine happiness in his life, I was advising Deborah not to carry belle before school will resume the way she was smelling sperm sperm, issoright. She was telling me gerrehia bad girl.
We resumed with full force. Project issues sha.. I had so much on me that I was running from library to computer centre with my laptop in hand, we didn’t offer so many courses that semester due to project. Before I even get myself and my yeye project supervisor be forming James Hadley Chase for me, pot-belle like him, I will just punch his big belle and it will deflate like tyre, he won’t see this post, amen.
Like that like that people started crying when they saw their results, My A stand out in that course in the midst of the Fs rolling. That lecturer na really radical lecturer I swear, no wonder students were wailing when he came back. Since the owner of the course is back they can bribe their way through, as for Eva and Naomi. I made sure I checked it.
Eva had E and the marlian that fu-ck everything and club everywhere forgot to fu-ck her books and made an excellent F. Eva is bright but she was too beautiful for book to admire, na wetin she dey reason sha..
We started our examination in ernest and just few courses and we were done. During this period I met James when my car had issues on my way home, we got on talking after he helped me and fixed it, then we exchanged numbers.
James was sweet and he never stopped showing it, boom Deborah carry belle. I started teasing her, trust me na. I said it will be a girl and she must be called Gift Jnr jare, but Deborah refused that it will be a boy. Lai lai, I no gree.
James proposed marriage to me and he proved that he isn’t a pu-ssy niggar.
Deborah: accept him na, he is a cool guy.
Me: I too young to marry.
Deborah: but you no too young to dey do mio mio with men, bah?
We laughed over it, I told him I will accept but it will be after my final exam in the university. After we tidied the examination the introduction date was fixed, I called Anderson and he didn’t sound angry and embittered the way I imagined him to instead he acted cool and even told me he knew about everything, I was close to tears when he spoke soft kind words to me. I felt loved beyond measures, when I told him about my wedding he was restless and he insisted that I shouldn’t marry James, what was his reason? He was just giving silly reasons so I still maintained my stand.
The introduction was fixed and James with his parents came to perform some rites, I was surprised James father was the professor that took advantage of me. The day was a disaster on his own, the man insisted that his son will not marry his wife, he didn’t tell anyone what he meant. I and him were the ones that knew what happened between us.
Anderson consoled me and persuaded me to leave Nigeria for America, Sarah was grigri when I agreed. She was all smiles as we left Nigeria. This was my story, I hope you learnt one or two from it.
