Chapter Eight:The Fifth And The Last Child

Discussion about the party and Ninas
denial

The next day she didnt
want to see him because she was ashamed of what he thought of her. After
lectures, she went to the hostel, thinking and trying to sleep. She was
wondering why she let him kiss her when she vowed to herself before going to
the school that she won
t have anything to do with any guy. Finally, she slept
off and when she woke up……..
Evelyn:
(just coming from the kitchen with a pot of jollofrice) hey, what happened to
you today? Sleepyhead!
Nina: how?                         
Evelyn:
immediately after lectures you just went straight to the hostel.
Nina:
I was really tired.
Evelyn:
Dennis asked of you.
Nina:
oh, okay. How is he?
Evelyn:
fine I guess. What
s up?
Nina:
I
m good, just tired.
Evelyn:
that reminds me I saw Dennis at the party.
Nina:
you did? So he still went to the party?
Evelyn:
he can dance really well. I saw
him dancing with that slut Tina
and co.
Nina:
good for him.
Evelyn:
that
s true; he was supposed to be with you in class.
Hope you weren
t alone.
Nina:
no, no, I wasn
t alone.
Evelyn:
( looking suspicious) ok. So how was study?
Nina:
how is it supposed to be? Normal now… You should be telling me about the party,
at least you all had more fun than I did. So did Dennis walk out of the party
with Tina?
Evelyn:
I don
t know I was doing my thing. Meanwhile why are you
asking about Dennis alone?
Nina:
he
s the only person youve
mentioned you saw at the party and beside I heard some boys were having sex
with some girls last night.
Evelyn:
yeah it
s true but I went with Zino and the sisters so I
definitely didn
t kiss or sleep with a guy. Besides I have a
boyfriend at home and I intend to be faithful to him.
Nina
:(smiling) you have a boyfriend at home? That
s
good, from today you have a spy in this school that will report you to him when
you mess up.
Evelyn:
very funny, don
t waste your sight or ears because Ive
got nothing. How about you? Do you have a boyfriend at home?
Nina:
no I don
t.
Evelyn:
are you saying that because you want to date someone here? All these guys are
just looking for whom to use and dump. We just have six months here, four more left;
it
s just a waste of time.
Nina:
of course not. It
s the truth.

Nina thought about what Evelyn said and didnt
want to waste her time on boys. So she made sure kissing Dennis was the last
time she will ever get attached to any guy in the school. At least not for
long…..
In the evening, everyone was in her room talking
about the party. How they never knew some people could dance like Nina
s brother
and how they never knew some were dating. It was time for night class and Nina
was scared of seeing him so she didn
t go and told Evelyn
to go that she
ll be coming.
Dennis went to the class she always stays. Waiting
for her but he didn
t see so he looked for Evelyn and asked after her…
Dennis:
hi, Evelyn.
Evelyn:
hi
Dennis:
what
s up? You dont
come to study every night anymore.
Evelyn:
yeah sometimes I don
t like coming out because of the sand fly and cold
so I study in the hostel.
Dennis:
okay, so where
s Amanda?
Evelyn:
um, she should be on her way. She said she
ll
be coming.
Dennis:
ok, let me leave you to study now.
Evelyn:
alright. bye
It was 12midnight and Nina didnt
come to class so Evelyn was exhausted and went to the hostel to see Nina
listening to Ann and Zino talk about some of their roommates that were having
sex with their boyfriends.
Evelyn:
look at this one. So this is where you are and I
ve
been waiting for you in class.
Nina:
sorry I couldn
t come I was cold.
Evelyn:
I see
Zino:
Evelyn what
s your own? Is it by force to go for night class?
Allow her.
Evelyn:
whatever, I
m going to sleep.
Nina:
goodnight Bunkie!
Evelyn:
goodnight.
Ann:
Evelyn, tomorrow you
ll teach me what you studied.
Evelyn:
no problem.
                      Dennis wants more…
Princess was always off and on in school because
she was always falling ill. She hasn
t been around but she
just came in and everyone welcomed her. She was in class and saw princess
coming back so she wanted to say hi and started leaving the class. And sees the
last person she wants to see….
Dennis:
hi
Nina:
hi (her heart really beating fast)
Dennis:
she
s your friend?
Nina:
yeah, she hasn
t been around for a while.
Dennis:
oh didn
t even notice.
Nina:
why should you? You don
t even know her.
Dennis:
I know her.
Nina:
(Dennis blocks the way)Okay, can I pass now?
Dennis:
sure, but um, will you come to class tonight?
Nina:
I don
t know.
Dennis:
why?
Nina:
nothing. I
ll come if I feel like.
Dennis:
but I want you to come.
Nina:
why?
Dennis:
see your face!
Nina:
you are seeing it now.
Dennis:
yeah, but seeing it again.
Nina:
I
ve to go.
Dennis:
ok, hope to see you later today.
Nina:
bye.
Dennis:
bye.
Nina
gets to the hostel…talks to Princess;
Nina:
runaway student! Are you a student at all? What
s
been happening?
Princess:
Amanda, I
ve been really sick
Nina:
I
m so sorry. Hope you ok now
Princess:
I
m better.
Nina:
thank God.
She helps her arrange her things. Evelyn comes in
and starts acting somehow because she always feels like whenever Nina sees
princess she forgets about her…
Evelyn:
so this is why you rushed out of class.
Nina:
did I rush? Princess has been sick.
Evelyn:
sorry, how are you now?
Princess:
I
m fine thanks.
Evelyn: thank God for you. Nina your brother sent
his greeting. He said he has not seen you in a while.
Nina:
okay.
