Chapter Thirty Two :The Fifth And The Last Child


Ninas friends; onome and Zino werent going to the party meanwhile Nina didnt know that Agnes travelled so it was just Adaobi and Sally and the three wise women; Chidera, Adaeze and Norah like Mac Anthony from Ninas department would call them went together as usual Mac Antony calls them that because they are three of course,they are ladies and they go everywhere together except exam hall.Adaeze abandons them during exam and sits with the boys because they dont read and arent that smart. They (Chidera and Norah) didnt see it as a big deal at first because they werent seeing Adaezes results… Meanhwile they were flunking.
Nina couldnt call Dennis because of her phone problem so she left for her picnic. She returned Maureens phone back to her since people werent really calling her except guys that want to ask her out. The only people she was interested in them calling her was her sister and her dad but since she can flash them with chideras phone and theyll call back immediately, she felt she can get a phone when she goes back home for break
Her departmental people hired a bus; most of them were in it while their friends from other department took another bus. Ral (from biochemistry) was accompanying her friend from the department to the party and of course Chux came along with her. Before they got to the route to crossover, Nina started asking people if they are going to cross the lake. They finally got there and like she predicted, they were crossing the lake but the good part of it was with a speed boat not a canoe
Nina :( getting down from the bus) oh please tell me the resort is not over there?
Nneka: I think it is.
Nina: oh my God!
Chidera: Amanda hi!
Nina: hi Dera! I didnt see you in the bus.
Chidera: I was in the other bus.
Nina: okay, are you cool with lakes?
Chidera: what do you mean?
Nina: I mean we are crossing to the other side of the lake.
Adaeze: what? Is that true?
Nina: you guys didnt know?
Chidera: no we didnt, oh my God!
Nina: (sarcastically) perfect! You know what? This is not fair, is like and ambush, is not everyone that can swim or even love to be on a boat for that matter.
Adaeze: oh no, what if its the canoe we a taking?
Nina: then seriously, Ill be going back to the hostel. But theres another direction to that part of the lake.
Adaeze: is there?
Nina: yeah, I dont know why they didnt take there in the first place.
Adaeze: if anything happens to me, it’s on the department.
Chidera: nothing is going to happen, just chill out guys!
Nina: some people are already entering the boat.
Adaeze: where are they?
Nina: over there.
Adaeze: oh no, is there no way we can have the picnic on the side of the lake?
Nina: right? That would be better.
Chidera: but people are already going with the speed boat. Oh look, theres another boat.
Nina: Well I guess we better go closer,at least its not a canoe and the place is not that far.
Nneka: lets take pictures.
Nina: okay, cool.
They took pictures together; Nina, nneka, oge, chidera and Norah and headed to the boat.
Picnic co-ordinator: next set please!
Adaeze: John, how many people are going to be on this boat?
Coordinator: maybe eight or something. I dont know, theyll put you guys together.
Nina: I hope its safe?
Coordinator: most people have crossed already and obviously its safe. Lets go people!
Adaeze: Okay here we go.

The boat starts moving and Adaeze starts screaming and they hold themselves tightly, screaming together. The final got to the other side to meet the rest of their departmental people
Adaeze: oh my God! Wow, thank God.
Nina: We are still going to cross back later.
Adaeze: till then.
Nina: oh look at Adaobi,(waving at Adaobi and walking to her).
Adaobi: hey, what’s up?
Nina: Im good and you? What of Agnes?
Adaobi: she travelled.
Nina: oh okay.
Adaobi: meet Sally.
Nina: hi Sally.
Sally: hi.
Adaobi was with Sally and Martins before Nina saw them, then after a while sally left with Martins and Adaobi was with Nina
Nina: are we still walking?
Adaobi: yeah, I heard we have to trek to the hotel.
Nina: how far is it?
Adaobi: I have no idea. Some people are taking bikes to the place.
Nina: and the bikes are few.
Chux: at the back of Nina with his girlfriend) Why? Are you tired of walking?
Nina: No! What are you doing here?
Chux: what do you mean what Im doing here?
Nina: are you in my department, oh hi Ral! What are you also doing here?
Ral: we came with our friend in your department.
Nina: both your friends?
Chux: actually shes Rals friend.
Nina: Ral understandable but you, not.
Adaobi: this place is beautiful.
Nina: yeah, it’s nice.
They got outside the hotel finally because they didnt book hotel reservations since it’s just a picnic. The DJ coupled his gadgets and started playing music and they had soft drinks while some people came prepared and wore their shorts and headed straight to the lake. Nina came with just her shorts incase she was going near the lake
Adaobi :( after thirty minutes) this is sort of boring.
Nina: tell me about it!
Adaobi: people are swimming at the lake. Let’s go there.
Nina: Yeah that because they can swim, alright!
Adaobi: I want to join them.
Nina: can you swim?
Adaobi: no but do you want to tell me that most of them can swim. We wont go deep just at the bank of the river.
Nina: okay, thank God I brought my shorts.
Adaobi: oh you did? Imagine and I didnt even bring anything. Anyways who cares, let’s go!
They ran into the lake to meet others and  Nina saw her bunkmate there already with her friend Oge.Oges room is opposite Ninas room,shes dating Tochukwu in the same Department and level,she doesnt really have swag like her friend Nneka but shes prettier than her. Although she looks like she has swag but she doesnt.
After some time Chux, Vivian and his girlfriend joined them at the lake. Since they hired a cameraman, he took pictures of them in the water and they posed for the ones they wanted him to print. Nina snapped with chux, Vivian, Ral, oge, Adaobi, Nneka, they were all girls in the picture except Chux, Chux and Nina snapped a personal picture. At first it was boring but later it was fun for Nina and her friends, Chidera, Adaeze, Norah and most people didnt enter the lake.
