Chapter Twenty Three:The Fifth And The Last Child {cont’d}

Everywhere
was getting dark, some people were going for night class while some went for
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
The next
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
Chidera: hi Amanda!
Nina: (turns around) hi.
Chidera: Meet Adaeze.
Nina: oh hi! Its just you two?
Adaeze: yeah for now. We
want four people but when you join we
ll be three, we dont even have to wait for the fourth person.
Nina: okay, nice. Ill get back to you guys on
that.
Adaeze: okay, see you
later.
Nina: yeah (walking into
class).
Zino: Amanda, over here!
Nina: zino, whats happening?
Zino: not much, the class
is filled as usual. I wonder if these people don
t sleep.
Nina: dont mind them.
Zino: some people are even
keeping seats for their friends that haven
t even had their baths.
Nina 🙁 laughing) its crazy. Onome, you are at
the back today?
Onome: I came late.
Nina: What happened?
Onome: Woke up late.
Nina: dont worry from tomorrow Im going to be seating in
front. I can
t take this shit anymore.
Zino: yeah right!
Nina: Im serious.
Zino: anyways, if you do?
Keep a space for me.
Nina: sure.
Onome: and me besides you
stay in the hostel, it ought to be easy for you.
Nina: oh because I stay in
the hostel I shouldn
t sleep.
Onome: Im not saying you shouldnt sleep, just try to wake
up early.
Nina: I wake up early.
Zino: sure you do!
Nina: guys, this isnt pre-science. Its different.
Onome: whatever you say.
Zino: we just have to see.
Nina: Ill surprise you guys dont worry.
Onome: well see.
Zino
starts talking to someone she knows, Onome was studying her textbook. Nina didn
t know Chux was at her back
and listening to everything she was saying, when he saw she wasn
t talking to her friends
anymore since they were talking to other people; he taps her at the back
Chux: hi!
Nina: hi!
Chux: how was your night?
Nina: good.
Chux: wont you ask me how mine was?
Nina: I dont care.
Chux: come on, I asked
about yours.
Nina: thats because you dont have what to do.
Chux: and you do?
Nina: whats that suppose to mean?
Chux: you dont seem to be doing
anything.
Nina: its none of your business
what I do.
Chux: oh yeah?
Nina: yeah.
Chux: okay, its fine. I dont expect you to care.
Nina: good.
Chux: I like you, can we be
friends?
Nina: you are not my enemy.
Chux: I know but I want us
to be buddies.
Nina: whatever!
Chux: so is that a yes?
Nina: alright just leave me
alone.
Chux: okay.
Nina 🙁 sighs) okay!
Chux: I guess well talk some other time.
Nina: yeah I guess.
Chapter Seventeen:The Fifth And The Last Child
Chux
girlfriend comes around there, her name is Ral, and she
s in the same department
with chux…
Ral: chux! What are you
doing here? Why do you always seat at the back?
Chux: These guys are always
coming so early that I don
t see were to seat.
Ral: I kept a space for you
in front.
Chux: you did? Oh, um I dont really know.
Ral: What? You said theres no space and I found one
for you and you don
t want to come.
Chux: I will, uh have you
met my friend Amanda?
Ral: hi, Ive seen your face around
the hostel.
Nina: yeah, I stay in the
hostel.
Ral: nice to meet you. Chux

Nina: you too.
Chux: okay, Im coming (follows Ral).
Zino: who is that one?
Nina: dont mind that guy, his always
disturbing me.
Zino: and he has a
girlfriend.
Nina: he says he wants to
be friends.
Zino: indeed, thats how it starts.
Onome: I know his friend,
he stays in my lodge. His name is also Chux. They are crazy boys.
Nina: I can tell his a
player. I
m sure that girl is not the only one his dating.
Zino: it is written all
over him.
Finally
their lecturer came to class and taught them. After the lecture, Nina saw
Evelyn and her twin sister. Why Evelyn was no more with Nina all the time is
because they are not in the same department and they don
t stay together anymore so
she has to start following people that are in the same department with her. But
they still greet when they see each other
Evelyn: Amanda! Hey!
Nina: hi! Oh my! Is she
your twin sister?
Evelyn: yeah, met Ethel,
Ethel meet Amanda.
Ethel: hi, I have heard a
lot about you.
Nina: yeah, likewise, nice
to meet you.
Evelyn: Where are you
headed?
Nina: not sure.
Evelyn: lets go take a picture at the
photo stand.
Nina: yeah, that will be
great.
They got
there and took a picture together, the twins wore the same clothes and Nina was
in the middle
Nina: wow, its nice to see you again.
When did you resume Evelyn?
Evelyn: last week.
Nina: okay, I didnt know youd be around thats why I didnt come.
Evelyn: you could have
called.
Nina: true, true. What of
Agbani?

Nina: okay, send my regards
to her when she gets back.
Evelyn: okay, take care.
Nina: yeah, bye! Take care
