Segun left home for his centre, for the
day’s paper, Government scheduled for 11AM. He got into a commercial bus and off he went to Loyola College.

A dark girl was seated beside him in the
bus. The girl was drinking a canned orange juice. The bus galloped which made the drink to spill on segun.

“Oh my God! Please am very sorry.”
She apologised as she quickly removed a handkerchief from her purse.
He collected it from her and cleaned himself but the stain refused to go.
Segun was dressed in a white T-shirt and a blue jean.

“It’s nothing.” Segun said faking a smile even though he was angry.

“Please don’t be annoyed.” She said.

“No problems.” segun assured.

“Okay.” she replied.

The journey continued in silence except for the
noise generated by other passengers
and the bus conductor.

“You are Segun right?” she asked.

“Yeah. How did you know my name?” segun replied with a question.

“Aren’t you the one who had issues with the invigillator on saturday?” she asked.

“Yes i am.” he replied.

“I overheard your name from Nike.”
she informed.

“How did you know Nike.” he asked.

“She was my friend.” she informed.

“Was?” he asked.

“Yeah.” she replied.

“What went wrong?” he asked.

“She turned against me when she
started seeing Emmanuel.” she explained.

“And why was that?” Segun asked.

“I was against the relationship because the guy is a pretender. He has a gentle face but a
dangerous heart.” she said.

“Oh! I see.” He replied.

“I learnt he attacked you when you went to Ikolaba?” she asked.

“Yes.” he replied.

“Please try and avoid him. He can
kill.” she warned.

“Okay.” Segun replied.

They both got down from the bus when
they got to the bus-stop. They crossed the road and started walking towards their centre.

“What’s your own name?” he asked

“My name is Tolani.” she replied.

“Nice name.” He complimented.

“thanks. You also have a nice name.” she said.


“What do you think now that the students had
resumed from holiday?” she asked expertly
changing the topic.

“Everything will be clumsy. Even their noise tends to disturb the exam.” he replied.

“Thank God the exam is almost over.”
she replied.

They continued walking in silence until
they got in Loyola college.

“Let’s get our biometrics done.”
Tola said.

“Alright.” he replied.

They both walked towards the exam

Nike was seated on the stairs reading a textbook.

There was a glint of jealousy in her eyes.
Segun walked past her without greeting
or uttering a

“You didn’t greet her?” Tola asked.
“Yes.” Segun replied nonchalantly.


“You didn’t greet her?” Tola asked.

“Yes.” Segun replied nonchalantly.

“Why?” she asked.

“We had a slight misunderstanding.”
he said.
“About what?”

“The invigillator’s issue.
She said i am
proud and i
lack manners.” he explained.

“That’s rude!” she exclaimed.

“She said she can’t be my friend until i change my
attitude.” he explained further.

“She defined it.” she concluded.

“yeah.” he replied.

They got to Tola’s seat and she sat
down. Segun left for his seat but when he got there he
found a paper
clipped to his chair.
He picked it up and read.

“The battle is still on.”
He tore the paper and threw it away.
“These guys are really crazy.” he

He sat down and did his last minutes

The invigillator came in and distributed
the question and answer booklet.
Segun started providing answers to the
question. He
finished the theory section and the
(OMR)sheet was shared an hour later.
They all
submitted the OMR sheet fourty-five
minutes later
and the students trooped out of the hall.

Segun got outside and switched on his
phone. A message came in. He read the message
as he
walked and didn’t face where he was
bumped into Olanike and his phone fell
d own.
“hey.” she greeted smilling.

“hello.” he replied without facing up.

He picked up his phone, cleaned it with
the tip of his
shirt. He made to walk away.

“Segun.” she called holding him. He looked at her with a
“what is your

“What’s going on?” she asked.

“About what?” he replied with a
“why are you doing this to me?” she

“You asked me to.” he replied.

“That’s a lie.” she replied.

“I don’t deserve ur frienship in terms
of morals.” Segun countered.

“I don’t mean what i said on
saturday.” she

“Okay. No problems.” he assured.

“Thanks, see you tomorrow.” she said.

Segun left his centre and decided to
branch his
school. He boarded a bus and dropped in
his bus-
stop. He took a turning to the left and walked to the
end of the street where his school
Comprehensive High school was located.

He got to the school gate but was denied
enterance by the school security man who
demanded to know
who he was.

“I am a student of this school.” he

“Let me see your I.D card.” the man requested.

“what nonsense, i have every right to
enter into this
school anytime.” he said.

“What’s going on there?” Mr Adio
the school’s vice principal asked.

“Sir, this boy said he is a student of this
school but
he couldn’t produce his I.D card.” the
security man
“Which boy?” Mr Adio said moving
close to the
school gate.

“Good afternoon sir.” Segun greeted.

“Ah! It’s you Segun? How are you. Let
him in.” Mr Adio said.

“Okay sir.” the security man said.

“This is Segun, the school disciplinary
prefect.” Mr
segun told the security man.

“Okay sir.”

Mr Adio and Segun walked back into the
chatting like old friends. They walked
past the junior
classes and the students began hailling
The vice principal took him to his offic e
taking him to the staff room where he
introduced to the new teachers.

He left and went to his class where he went to greet
his class mate who are not writing the

He narrated his experience to them.
Ranging from the candidates, the invigillators, the sexy
girls and
many more.

He left the school thirty minutes to the
closing time
and went home.
He got home and met his brother and his
Wale in the sitting room playing a game
of football
on his brother’s laptop.

“Hello bros.” he greeted.
“How are you boy?” Tope asked.

“Bro Wale.” he called on his
brother’s friend.

“wassup aburo.” Wale asked.

“Am good jare.” he replied.

“How was your paper.” they both asked.

“It was fine.” he replied.

“How are your girlfriends?” Wale

“They are doing good.” he answered.

“Tell me, is it true you are dating Olanike?”

He looked at his brother but got a wink
in reply.

“Not really.” he replied.

“But, what do you intend doing with her?” Wale

“I feel something for her but i don’t
know how to tell
her.” he replied.

“You don’t know how to tell her or you are afraid?”
Tope cut in.

“I don’t know.” he said.

“So you don’t have liver, and you will
be claiming a
hard guy. Am highly disappointed in you.” Tope

“You have no excuse.” Wale said.

“Prove us wrong by asking her out
tomorrow and
bring her to this house by next week.” Tope said.

“Is that a challenge?” Segun asked.

“Whatever you call it.” Wale said.

Just then Segun’s phone rang and he
checked the caller.
It’s Olanike.
