The assembly ended as usual. As the
students moved into their classes, Mr
Anuma sighted Jennifer and Calista coming
without a uniform. He placed his hands
inside his pocket and adjusted his eyeglass
as a way of being ready to talk about
something very important. He was always
on voluminous clothes with big shoes
which made students sometimes wonder if
the grammars were loaded there.
“Mbakwe and Jacob!” Mr Anuma called and
they ran to him giggling. Both wore the
same jean trouser and red top.
“Good morning sir” they greeted.
“Do i need to remind both of you that you
are no longer the students of this school?”
“Sir, why?” Calista asked.
“Because there is nothing connecting you
and this school again”
“Sir is unfair nah. What about our result?”
“Sir, that’s the reason why we are even here
oh” Calista added.
“Your result is online, not yet in school!”
“Hey!” they shouted and ran out then Mr
Principal’s office had no duplicate. It was
exceptional nd magnificent. One could see
a refrigerator and a computer on the table.
Pictures of president Muhammandu Buhari
and governor of the state hung on the wall.
The principal looked at the woman before
him her daughter and asked, “What can i
do you for?”
“Actually, this is my daughter, i want her
registered in this school” the woman
The principal looked at the girl, he could
see how classic and irresponsible she was
by chewing a gum in his presence.
“Please, spit out that thing in your mouth. It
shows unseriousness and irresponsibility!”
Mr Nelson told her bitterly before she
transferred it to her hand.
“Would you apologize to him?!” the mother
shouted at her.
“I’m sorry sir” she said with a low voice.
“Please, pardon her, sir”
“What’s your name?” Mr Nelson asked her.
“I’m Vivian Luster”
“Okay” the principal registered her and
summoned Tochi in the office. Vivian
looked at her when she entered and she
wondered who she was.
“Please, take Vivian to your class, she’s a
green horn” the principal instructed Tochi.
“Okay, sir” she replied smartly. “Please,
follow me” she told Vivian, so they began
walked into the class looking like sisters
with the same height.
“Who are you?” Vivian asked Tochi.
“I’m a student” she replied.
“Of course i know you are a student! I
mean what’s your name?!”
Tochi became surprise hearing the pressure
from her voice as if they were quarrelling,
then she smiled.
“You have to slow down, we aren’t arguing”
“Did i say we are arguing?” Vivian asked
but Tochi remained quiet until both walked
into the class and everybody stared at
“Make use of that locker for today but
when coming tomorrow make sure you
come with your locker and a uniform too”
Tochi told Vivian and went to her seat with
her face bent downward.
As Jennifer and Calista went to a cyber
cafe to check their results Wisdom was in
his room quietly thinking about what the
future will give. He wore only a singlet and
a boxer lying in the bed with his face up.
“What will happen to Tochi if i leave?” he
began to think. “Probably she will become
a big girl before i come back. But can she
really wait for me? Oh God, i can’t afford to
lose her. What am i going to do?”
“Akonauche” the father interrupted him and
pushed the door opened. “You are here in
this mood again. Can you talk to me what
your problem is?”
“Daddy, i have no problem” he replied
without looking at him.
“The troubles of the heart can only be
solved when spoken with the mouth”
Wisdom thought of his father’s statement
then sat up on the bed. “Daddy” he called.
“Can a distance separate two friends?”
“Hmm, my son, many distance friendships
or relationships get devastated when the
two partners are not close to the heart”
“What do you mean Daddy?”
“Only two people who are close to the heart
and have the same mindset even trust each
other can have a distance friendship
Wisdom stared at his father giving a
thought on his inspirational words.
“Who is this your friend you are talking
about?” the father asked him before he
“My school friend, Daddy”
“A male or female?”
“Hum.. Daddy, she is.. I mean he is a male”
“Okay, don’t bother yourself about that”
“Okay, Daddy” Mr Caleb went out.
The road leading to Calista and Jennifer’s
house was wide and cleared. One could see
people passing with foodstuffs and other
items. Jennifer and Calista walked briskly
on the road with papers in their hands.
“I never knew you are such an intelligent
girl to pass your waec at once” Calista told
“Do you think I’m as dull as you are?” she
“Are you sure your mother’s charm is not
“Nkita rachakwagi anya ebe-ahu!” Jennifer
abused her in igbo language and walked
angrily forward leaving her behind.
“I’m sorry oh! Forgive me!” Calista pursued
her. “I guess my own mother’s charm
made me to pass too” she added.
“Thank God you know” Jennifer replied
