it, he flared up and went to the man’s office
me sef come dey fear. He came back after
an hour and assured me that no lecturer
will try that rubbish except He/She wants
to loose His/Her lecturer job, waaoohh!
my superman. I was very happy, I mean
proud to have someone like him. Naomi
and Eva avoided me even during the examination
they didn’t sit close to me. Somehow am
happy that I can give my all to what am
writing and also felt sad that I have lost
their crazy gists about their romps, bad
girls. After the Examination, I wonder
who gave my father’s the information
that we are done with our Examination
because I lied to him so that I can stay
back for the end of the year departmental party.
Somehow somehow the man find out
and demanded to see me home immediately,
I drove home sad and Anderson told me
that he is the one that did it, I wanted to
knock that guy on his head. But d–n!!
I can’t help it, he is the sweetest thing
that could happen to any girl. I think my
heart have started beating for him.
was the happiest girl on Earth when I arrived
home, he didn’t even allow me to breathe
fine when she started her day-dreaming
of marrying my brother, how can someone
be narrow-minded. She brought her SSS2
results and showed me, I was shocked
the girl just dey knack A’s upadan. She
even said she wanted to be a doctor so
that she will treat my brother whenever
he fell ill after their marriage. I was like
hmmm, na waoohh for you oohh..!! She
started pestering me when my brother
will return, I nodey see the future na was
my reply. Anderson called me that he is
visiting, I was so happy and he came then
we went to his house together. I now understood
why he has so much influence because
his parents are filthy rich, see maids and
servants everywhere. And he is the only
son, his mother called me Agnes. I was
like who be Agnes again na?
Anderson mom: Andy, who you bring home?
Anderson: my friend.
Anderson mom: my daughter *she hug me tight*
Me: good afternoon, ma.
Anderson mom: no call me mother.
treated me like their daughter, the woman
refused to even let me go home. My dad
has to come on his own and took me home,
He was like Gift those people wan thief
you from me. Am now in two families, gosh!
and everyone of them treated me like
their own. Anderson’s father was the worse
the man changed my name to Dotted Gift
the way he showered me with gifts, the
christmas was one hell of fun. As I went
places with Anderson’s family, the funny thing
was that Sarah in the midst of fun was
still jacking text books and buying more
medical books from the money she got
from well wishers during the christmas.
The extra she spent it on skin care to
look beautiful, I say this girl dey jobless.
She started disturbing me that I should
video call my brother. I did and this girl
couldn’t even face the screen for ten seconds,
she will blush profusely and hid her face.
My brother asked who she is and I told
him is his Nigeria wife, chikena. That day
Gift treated me like Queen Elizabeth of
England. After the Christmas Anderson’s
father called me to come and see him
in their house, I went and met the man.
Anderson Dad: Gift, you go like follow us to America.
Me: when, daddy?
Anderson Dad: this January.
Me: school go soon open.
Anderson Dad: you go school overseas.
Me: what of Anderson?
Anderson Dad: he is also going with us.
Me: make I first inform my dad.
told my father about it and he refused,
he claimed am the only child he has in Nigeria
how can all his children leave him. Anderson
wasn’t happy to leave me behind, his parents
asked me to persuade him because his
presence is highly needed there for him
to get used to the family business. He now
told me how he lost his twin sister, he
blamed himself for the death of his sister,
he was drunk when he went to pick up
his sister in a shopping mall and both
of them got into accident, he survived
but his twin sister lost her life. I felt for
him and kissed him but he didn’t respond,
I tried again but he didn’t. I just hug him when
I realized he only have that sisterly love
for me. When I escorted them to the airport
and they left the country with a huge part
of me, I realized how much he meant
to me. Things began to fall apart when
he left, Our Elder say the chick will values
its mother when she has deserted it for
