Me n Samuel: we are coming..we said in unison. A satisfactory smile
quickly appeared on her beautiful face.
Me: so aunty Jenny, when is the party gonna start.
Jennifer: the party will start by 11pm till anytime you wanna go, maybe 6am or 5am
in the morning. Wait, hope your parents
won’t disturb you?
Me: no, I am a big boy now. I can sleep
I said while she laughed and turned to
Jennifer: what about you Samuel? I hope your parents won’t shout at you.
Samuel: nay they won’t.
Jennifer: very nice. Lemme continue the preparations.
She said and continued her work while me
and Samuel walked to our separate room
with a smirk on our faces.

out by 11pm.
Me: what about Samuel?
I asked still deep in thought. Samuel mum
