Chapter Twenty Nine:The Fifth And The Last Child

Blessing
was reading OK magazine with Agnes and Nina went to read it with them, she didn
t know that Agnes had told
them not to tell her, her name.
Nina: Blessing please let
me see that magazine.
Blessing: sure.
Nina: oh Halle berry,
always looking good.
Blessing: right?
Nina: yeah, I wish I had a
body like hers.
Ifeoma: you have a nice
shape, what of we that can lose this fat.
Ernestina: will you stop
eating?
Ifeoma: how will I stop
eating? I’m human you know.
Ernestina: I dont mean literally, I mean
the way you eat normally.
Ifeoma: its not easy my dear.
Agnes: check out Beyonce.
Nina: thats another hottie but I
still prefer Halle
s shape.
Ifeoma: I prefer Beyonce,
Halle Berry is short.
Nina: Beyonce looks like
she would get fatter than this but since I
ve known Halle berry she has always been like this and shes older than Beyonce but
when you see both of them you
ll think Beyonce is older.
Agnes: thats true but Beyonce is a
good musician.
Nina: I dont doubt that, shes a great musician.
Ifeoma: do you know this
her song, baby boy?
Nina: (singing the song)
yeah.
Ifeoma: I love that song
and the way she danced (singing and dancing at the same time).
Ernestina: ifeoma has
started her crazy dance.
Adaobi: ifeoma and her
snake dance.
Adaobi is
Agnes friend; she is the original roommate in Ernestina
s room. Agnes just comes to
see her since she was her bestfriend, she is in the same room with Adaeze but
she doesn
t like staying there
because most of them in the room were seniors.it was only she (Agnes) and Adaeze
(chidera
s friend) that were in the
same level so she felt more comfortable in Adaobi
s room because they were all in year one. She sleeps
there most of the time; it
s just her bags she keeps
in her own room. Adaobi is the first and only daughter in her family; she’s in
microbiology as well and is based in a local government area close to the
school since she
s from the state.
Ifeoma: Amanda do you know
this song? Tell me by bobby Valentino?
Nina: yeah.
Ifeoma: I love that song,
when it
s played in the club I just go crazy (singing the song).
Blessing: (sing along as
well) it
s a nice song.
Ifeoma: Agi,, Sing the
song.( she didn
t want to call her name in front of Nina)
Nina: can she sing?
Agnes: I dont even know the song.
Ifeoma: yeah Amanda she
can.Sing the one you know, sing beyonce song.
Agnes: which one?
Ifeoma: he still loves me (Soundtrack from the movie ‘Fighting
Temptations’).
Agnes and
blessing starts singing the song, Nina knows the song but didn
t know the title so she
started singing along
Agnes: you know the song as
well.
Nina: yeah but its just the chorus I know.
You sing it pretty well.
Agnes: you too. Theres this club in school if
you
d like to join.
Nina: what club?
Adaobi: ATC club.
Nina: what’s that?
Agnes: All Talented
Christian Club.
Nina: oh okay.
Ifeoma: Agnes you and this
ATC club. Oh my, I
m sorry.
Nina: why are you? I knew
it, you are the Agnes.
Agnes: ifeoma why? Yes Im Agnes.
Ifeoma: sorry Agie, me and
my big mouth.
Nina: I knew it wont take long to find you.
Why did you run away anyways?
Agnes: I dont know, maybe I wanted you
to look for me like you
ve been doing.
Nina: wow! So youve been the person Ive been seeing in the room
and I didn
t even know.
Agnes: maybe its because you didnt notice I was here.
Nina: maybe.
Adaobi: whenever you come
here you are always asking of Ernestina, you don
t even want to know who is around.
Nina: really? I do that?
Blessing: yeah you do it.
Nina: my apologies.
Agnes: no problem.
Adaobi: can you imagine
Ernestina has been sleeping since.
Nina: yeah, I notice. You
see, but I still stayed to talk to you guys.
Agnes: true.
Nina: so Agnes where are
you based.
Agnes: Lagos.
Nina: really? Where in Lagos?
Agnes: Festac.
Nina: oh really,I was born
there at least that
s what I was told.
Agnes: where in Festac?
Nina: 21 road.
Agnes: what close?
Nina: thats all I know since we moved
out when I was three.
Adaobi: why?
Nina: my dads job.
Adaobi: okay.
Agnes: so are you going to
join ATC club?
Nina: I think I would.
Agnes: cool. I heard you
are in room 208.
Nina: yeah.
Agnes: how is the ultimate
warrior?
Nina: who? Maureen? Shes were she should be, I
have no idea.
Agnes: is she really giving
headache in that room.
Nina: yeah, at first I didnt notice and then I started
seeing her true colour. It
s Success I pity, she keeps bullying that girl, when Im around she doesnt really trouble her but
when I
m not when I come back the
next day, I’ll hear the gist.
Agnes: why cant she pick someone her own size?
Nina: dont mind her she wants
someone she can ride on.
Adaobi: thats terrible.
Nina: as of me, I cant wait to change room.
Adaobi: thats till second year.
Nina: yeah I know.
Agnes: most times you have
to register early or else there
ll be no room left.
Nina: yeah, I figured. Thats what Ill do next year.
Ernestina
woke up and started preparing as usual to go to Tony
s house. She doesnt treat Nina like a friend,
she felt maybe she hated her or maybe she doesn
t like the idea of Nina dating Dennis but then why
would she care that Dennis was dating her, does she like Dennis or what? That
was what was going through her mind and she decided not to force her to be her
friend since it was looking that way. Besides she
s making new friends now and dont really need the ones that
don
t appreciate her. Since she
didn
t have anything in common,
she and Chize weren
t really friends, its just that she was one of
the first people she met in the main campus aside her pre-science friends. So
they say hi to each other whenever they meet, Chize on the other hand, because
she liked Dennis she didn
t want to get close to Nina
so it won
t be difficult to do what
she wants to do with Dennis.
Nina is a
very nice and good person but can get jealous with who she loves when it seem
like someone is trying to take them away from her no matter who the person
is;father,mother ,brother,sister,boyfriend, and girlfriends
.
Adaobi: wakie wakie!
Agnes: someone came to see
you and you slept off.
Ernestina: who? Oh Amanda,
are you still here? I
m sorry I was so tired.
Nina: its cool. Your roommates were
keeping me company.
Ernestina: thanks guys
(coming down from her bunk and preparing to leave for Tony
s place). I dont even know how I slept
off.
Nina: it happens to all of
us sometimes.
Ernestina: yeah.
Adaobi: not when someone
comes to see me.
Nina: I guess people are
different. (thinking in her head -or just being mean or telling you to leave
them alone).
Ernestina: (finished
packing) I
m going, are you coming later?
Nina: I dont know yet.
Ernestina: okay, take care.
Nina: yeah bye. I think I
should be leaving to my noisy room.
Ernestina: you can stay if
you want.bye!
Adaobi: who is chasing you?
Nina: no one, I just have
things to do right now.
Agnes: or you are leaving
because Ernestina is leaving.
Nina: not at all.Ive tried havent i?
Adaobi: how?
Nina: Ive been here for hours, Ill come again and this time
to see you guys.
Agnes: sure?
Nina: yeah.
Agnes: okay, see you soon.
Nina: yeah bye, thanks for
the company though,I really appreciate it.
Agnes: anytime.
Adaobi: bye!
Nina: bye.
