I don’t need your stupid explanation’ Mr
francis shouted angrily at me as i tried to
explain to him ‘ you came late to school today
as if that is not enough you went to the class
and want to kill our student because you have
muscles right this is where you will stay till
closing no class for you ‘
he said and left ‘ i
looked at the large plot of grasses allocated
to me to cut. By the time the bell was rung for
closing i have already cleared a considerable
amount of grasses and decided to take some
rest so as to continue when everybody has left
the school. ‘Few minutes i was certain that
everybody must have left, i was set to
continue my work when i sighted a lady
walking towards the gate , ‘she looks like the
lady that sat on my laps in the bus, i decide
to clear my curiosity so i whistled , she looked
towards my direction and i waved at her to
come, she was reluctant at first but she began
walking towards me as she got closer i saw
her clearly lo and behold it was her, i was a
little bit ashamed that she met me that way
”good afternoon ma” i greeted smiling and she
replied ’ do you remember me ‘ i asked ’ i
noticed she was trying to recall where she
knew me , you paid my tfare last week’
i said
to her ’ oh i remember now ,the guy that
lapped me in the bus right? ‘
She asked ‘ yes am the one ‘ i replied ’ i just want to thank you for the other day ‘ i said ’ oh its nothing never mind ‘ she replied ’ by the way what are you doing here ‘ i asked ’ i work here ‘ she replied ’ i

was shocked. You mean you teach here ‘ i
asked again suprised, yes am a staff ‘she
replied trying to read my facial expression ’ do
you also work here, i mean a labourer?

She asked ’ no!! do i look like one ‘ i asked ’ yes now look at your muscles ‘ she replied smiling ’ am a student in this school ‘ i said to her ’ her countenance changed, for real where is your new uniform ‘ she asked ’ am a new student ma i have not been given ‘ are you on punishment
she asked ’ what’s your name Dan ‘ i replied
’ hmmm so its you hun its you that wanted to
kill your fellow student cause you have
muscles hun ‘
she said ’ no ma ‘i defended’ i narrated all that happened and she felt pity for me Have you eaten ‘ she asked ’ no i havent ‘ i replied ’ alright take this money and go home ,
dont cut the grasses again
she said as she
handed a #200 to me, i collected it and
thanked her , went to my class and picked my
bag left for my house.

The following day i got to school with the
anger of what transpired the previous day i
got to school late, i purposely did that ,’was
given T-fare but reserved it and decide to trek
and was late and saw latecomers being
punished by the prefects , as i got closer i was
ordered to kneel but i refused and gave them
an excuse but they refused to listen and was
reported me to mr francis when they knew am
not kneeling anytime soon
Dan what have you done today again, are you
not tired of being punished’
i heard someone
say and looked up to see her , ‘i narrated
everything to her , who gave you the
punishment ‘
she asked ’ mr Francis ‘ i replied
alright
she said and walked away.

‘She came back few minutes and told me to
go back to my class ‘what!! she pleaded on my behalf, this lady is Godsent, ‘i thought in my
mind’ i was happy, thanked her and was
about to leave , ‘wait what
class are you again’
she asked ’ SS2B ma ‘ i answered [B] ‘ alright i will send someone to come call you during break.
