Well nothing later happened as I made noodles for myself to eat before I found my way to my bed to catch some sleep.
Someone was busy knocking on my door this early morning. At first I didn’t want to wake up but the knocking became so intense that I have no choice than to stand up from my bed and walked to the door.
I screamed as I found out that Samuel was the one disturbing me from my sleep.
Samuel: you no want wake up again.
My mother say make I come wake you up abi you don forget say today na Monday?
Me: haa, today na Monday?
Samuel: no na last week Wednesday. Common go prepare make we go school.
He said and walked to his house. I smiled as I came back to my room to pick my handset to check the time. What I saw first was 4 missed calls, all from mum. Without wasting time I quickly called her back.
Me: good morning ma.
I said to her immediately she picked my call.
Mum: good morning Idris, how was your night?
Me: it was splendid and yours?
Mum: cool. I called you almost four times yesterday buy you were not picking up.
Me: I was already asleep when your call came in. It’s just now I am seeing it.
Mum: alright. I just wanna tell you that we arrived safely.
Me: oh thank God, what about Farouk?
Mum: he is fast asleep. I guess he is still very tired.
Me: and dad?
Mum: your dad is still sleeping too.
Me: alright mum. I want to prepare for school.
Mum: OK bye, take care.
Me: take care too.
I said and ended the call. Without wasting much time again. I ran to the bathroom where I took my bath and brushed my teeth.
Came back and wore my uniform and shoe and was set when Samuel walked inside my house again.
Me: them no teach you how to knock I think?
Samuel: you dey craze o, my mother say make o give you.
He said and dropped the plates in his hand. I opened it and it was filled with fried plantains and eggs.
Me: all these for me?
Samuel: no, all these for osama bin laden.
Me: hahaha, you dey craze o. You no go ever dey serious once in your life?
Samuel; but I enter your house say take this, my mother say make I give you and you still dey ask me say all these for me?
We both laughed, I walked to the small refrigerator in my room where I removed a thin of milk. When I came back, Samuel was already gone.
Without wasting time, I ate the food and drank the milk and I must confess, Samuel’s mum is a great cook.
I walk out of my room and closed it with a padlock before walking to their Samuel’s room. I greeted the mum for the food she gave me, kept the plates in the kitchen and me and Samuel set out to school.
We arrived at school pretty early and was forced to join the assembly.
In less than 30 minutes, we were through with morning devotion as we march to our various classes, starting from js1 to ss3.
I walk to my seat, dusted it and sat down. I breathed down in relief and looked around, I noticed something. Bella was looking at me with an angry face.
Me: wetin make that girl dey look me like that?
I asked Samuel who was sitting very close to me.
Samuel: which girl?
He stylishly looked at her before answering.
Samuel: no tell me say you don forget?
Me: forget wetin?
Samuel: no be you promise to meet her on Saturday?
Me: oh, no wonder. Your head correct my boy. No worry, I go go meet her very soon.
The English teacher entered inside our class to give us our first lecture for the day which lasted for over 45 minutes.
When he was through, he walked out of our class and Bella also walked out with him.
Samuel: this is your cue, follow her.
Me: sir yes sir!!
I said before walking out of the class to meet her.
