tutoring by this guy called Makay; he’s in the same level with them but he was smart and he dropped out from his
former school, so he knew some things already that he’s mate didn’t know. So he
decided to tutor them and collect some money, some of Nina’s departmental people that
stay in the hostel went for his class. Since Nina didn’t like anything group and
didn’t want to waste money she
decided to study own her own…
day, she had her bathe at about 5am with other hostel girls and decided to
sleep again till it was bright outside and she dressed up for lectures. On her
way out of the hostel she saw Chidera and Adaeze…
