“Why are you staring at me?” Linda and
Kingsley asked at the same time and
smiled. Just then Tochi entered seeing
them together which had never happened
for a long time.
“What’s going on here?” she asked.
“Nothing?” they replied at the same time
“Hmm, but i have never seen both of you
together like this oh. Anyways, Kingsley will
make a good husband to the iron lady”
“What does that suppose to mean?” Linda
“Did i call your name? Or is your name iron
Kingsley couldn’t stop smiling as he
listened to both of them with his hands
“The principal is calling you, kingsley” Tochi
“Why?” he asked.
“I don’t know”
“Alright” he stood up and went out
Few minutes later, the bell rang and all the
students were gathered in front of the
principal’s office. They knew an important
information wanted to be passed out to
them anytime they are summoned that
way. Mr Nelson and Mr Anuma stood on
the higher pavement looking at all the noisy
“Quiet, please!” Kingsley shouted before it
gradually died down then Linda admired
him while Vivian disdained him.
“Good afternoon, students!”
“Good afternoon, sir!”
“A better and a useful information has to
be passed out to every student in Nigeria”
the principal began. “The federal
government has approved that any student
who is able to score nine As on his or her
waec examination, and can also defend it
after he or she is called at the waec office
will be given a scholarship to study abroad”
the students began to rejoice.
“Quiet!” Mr Anuma shouted before
everywhere remained calm again.
The principal continued, “This will enable
students to study hard and improve
educationally. I am proud that one of my
graduated students was able to get nine As
and defended it. So I’m urging you to study
hard too so that you will be like him. Do
“Yes, sir!” the students chorused.
The principal went inside the office and left
the floor for Mr Anuma as usual then
students began to giggle when he adjusted
his eyeglasses and put his hands inside his
“Sir, please, don’t murder us with your
grammar oh!” a male student shouted from
“Sir, take it easy please” a female student
“Quiet” Kingsley shouted then everywhere
“I’m not surprise at your vulgarization” Mr
Anuma began. “The information which has
been given to you tantalisingly, no matter
how vivacious, voracious, even cadaverous
and wanderlust your are, if you don’t make
your books your first priority then you will
end up precipitously”
“Heeehh!” the students shouted. Then Mr
Anuma smiled and went into the office too.
“Sir has finally murdered me after all the
pleading” the boy said bitterly and smiled.
Kingsley stood before all the students. He
was actually given the order to dismiss
them immediately after the information, so
he called on Linda to lead them in prayer
which she did reluctantly and everybody
went home except Tochi and Linda who
met Kingsley at the junior section where he
was locking the classrooms.
“Kingsley, you looked for my trouble today
oh” Linda started.
“What have i done?” he asked smiling.
“Why would you call me to lead the
“Because he loves you” Tochi interfered.
“Bia, this girl, take time oh” Linda warned
pointing at her with smiles on her face.
“Are you going home now?” Kingsley
changed the topic.
“Yes, should we wait for you?” Tochi asked.
“I will only do that for a reason” Linda said.
“What reason?” Kingsley asked.
“For the reason that she loves you” Tochi
interfered again and ran away, then Linda
pursued her while Kingsley smiled at them.
They waited for him to close the
classrooms before they went home happily
and cracking jokes.
SS3 waec candidates began their exam. A
day before that, Wisdom called Tochi on
the phone at night when she was in her
“Promise to make me proud once again by
passing your exam” he said.
“I promise you, of course i studied hard.
Don’t worry, i will soon meet you there”
Tochi replied then Wisdom laughed.
“How sure are you that you will make nine
As?” he asked.
“I’m very sure oh!”
“Well, i wish you good luck”
“Bye, i love you”
“I love you too” the line went off.
Vivian, whose calls had been rejecting by
Wisdom sent him a message that same
night: WEATHER I MAKE MY WAEC OR
NOT I’M COMING OVER TO SHOW YOU
HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU..
On the examination day, candidate waited
outside. Some were reading their books
while some didn’t care but believed that
manner would come down from heaven or
probably the answers to the questions will
be seen on the ceiling.
Only Vivian was seen alone but as time
went on other close friends of hers met her
under a tree and started a conversation.
Tochi and Linda also were at another angle
thinking of how the examination will be
while Kingsley was with Mr Anuma. Few
hours later the examination kicked off…
