Her room was dark and quiet, but she
could hear her mother preparing breakfast
in the kitchen when she woke up. She
quickly turned on the light and everywhere
became bright. She wore only a pant which
had different colours without a bra to
support the slightly fallen b—-t. One could
see her n—–s stood erect feeling the
coldness of the morning and her fairy hair
down her abdomen. Her name is Melody
Smith. The books on the table reminded
her that it was a day she had been
preparing for, a day which she had waited
for and a day she kept special for the
dream she had that night. She quickly
rushed into the bathroom without thinking
twice and began to take her barth. She
sang a melodious christian song as she
had her body wet with soupy water. But
she suddenly stopped and stared at the
wall. “I have never dreamt of a man in my
life, but here i was last night dreaming of a
man i don’t even know. This is weird” she
concluded in thought and continued. Few
minutes later, she rushed out to see her
mother dressing the dining table.
“Good morning, Mummy” she greated and
the mother looked at her. She was
impressed to see her ready for school.
“Sit down my daughter” she said. “The God
who gave me money to register you on this
waec examination will make you pass in
“Amen, Thank you Mummy”
“Welcome. Just take your breakfast”
After a while, Melody entered the road to
her school without any bag but with a
Mathematical set. One could see the shape
of her underwears clearly and looking very
attractive from behind. She hurried into the
school compound but couldn’t believe her
eyes. The school was as quiet as a grave
yard. Nobody was there, then she became
surprise and wondered what was
happening. It was a clear description of her
dream. “God, am i still dreaming?” she
thought and slowed down. She narrowed
her vision and saw a boy in uniform but his
face wasn’t clear. “I saw this same thing in
my dream. What is going on?” she thought
again and became scared.
“Hi” a female voice startled her from
behind then she turned sharply and
“Thank Goodness you are here!” she said.
“Why are you so frightened?” Calista asked
“Can you imaging nobody is in school”
“What did you expect? School in on
“But at least waec candidates should be
here by now”
“But look at a waec candidate there”
Calista pointed at the boy standing at a
“Do you know him?” Melody asked.
“We shall know when we get there. Let’s
The boy stood in front of SS3A with his two
hands in his pockets looking handsome. He
barbed his hair in a fashionable style and
had dimples which was only visible when
he smiles. He had a chocolate complexion
with a pair of shoes on his feet. He turned
to Melody and Calista when they came
“Hi, Good morning” he greeted.
“Good morning” they responded and
glanced at him. He face wasn’t familiar
which made them wondered who he was.
Melody could see how he stared at her,
then she withdrew her face looking at other
“I guess you also came for the exam” the
boy said aloud.
“Yes, and who are you?” Calista asked.
“I’m an external candidate. My name is
Edwin Goodness” he stepped down.
“Oh, welcome and I’m Calista Jacob”
“Nice to meet you” they shook hands, yet
Melody looked uninterested to their
“Ehnm.. Hello” Edwin call her attention
before she turned and looked at his
handsome face. “Are you okay?”
“I’m fine” Melody gave a weak smiled.
“May i know your name too?”
“I’m Melody Smith”
“That’s a pretty name”
Just at that moment, candidates began to
arrive. They saw Mr Anuma’s car from a
distance and also saw Esther looking
“Hey, Mrs Chester!” they exclaimed and ran
towards her then eventually hugged her at
the very sight of Edwin.
“Come, this girls, is too early for this hug
and jokes. Which one is Mrs Chester
again?” Esther asked smiling.
“Are you not Mrs Chester?” Calista asked.
“She cannot deny it” Melody added.
“Crazy girls!” Esther smiled and they began
to move into the hall. Melody could see
Edwin still staring at her as they were
moving, then she became nervous and
Few minutes later, the hall was populated
with students and the day was brighter
than before. Chester and Wisdom had
come but were with Mr Anuma who gave
them an instruction before they went into
the hall at the same time.
“S.P!!” some students shouted and Wisdom
began to smile. Chester gradually left the
floor for him and sat beside Esther who
smiled at him broadly.
“Good morning, handsome” she greeted.
“Yes, that’s your new name”
“Wow, thank you”
“I hope you prepared very well for this
“Of course, yes” Esther replied. She crossed
her hand on his arms and placed her head
on his shoulder.
“Good morning my fellow students!”
“Good morning, S.P!” students responded.
Before he continued, Jennifer slowly walked
in and everybody stared at her…
A total silence took over the examination
hall when Jennifer entered, then external
candidates wondered who she was and
why the sudden quietness. Wisdom
expected her to greet or take permission
before entering but she didn’t, rather she
walked quietly to a lonely seat feeling less
ashamed. Calista and Melody stared at her
while Esther and Chester also looked her
but they couldn’t stop smiling!
“The examination will commence very
soon” Wisdom continued. “According to Mr
Anuma, external candidates should be
aware that there will be no malpractice and
if any implication is found among any of
us, the victim will be penalized..”
As Wisdom spoke with all boldness and
intelligence, Jennifer couldn’t stop staring
at him remembering all she passed through
in his hands and that of Tochi, then she
exhaled deeply and bent down her face on
the locker. Esther pitied her when she saw
her and glanced at Chester.
“I feel so pity for her” she told him.
“That means you have a good heart and
my children will be pampered a lot for any
little thing even when they are wrong”
“What does that mean? And what children
are you talking about?”
“Come on, you silly boy” Esther hit him
gently on the shoulder and grabbed his
arms again smiling. “But you are heartless
oh” she added.
“Why saying that?”
“Why can’t you pity somebody?”
“You mean Jennifer?”
“Why should i pity her?”
“Abeg go, you men are heartless joor”
Esther concluded and Chester smiled at her
Suddenly Mr Anuma entered with the
examiner and the students greeted with
their feet up.
“This examination shouldn’t be ponderous
otherwise you will suffer from
rheumatoidarthritis” Mr Anuma began with
a hand in his pocket. Just then, some
students who knew him began to giggle at
his grammar. Even Edwin smiled hearing
the unfamiliar words, so he folded his arms
and adjusted in his seat ready to hear more
of them. Melody turned immediately and
their eyes caught together but she
withdrew her face instantly.
Mr Anuma continued, “The green horns
here who are unaware of the substantial
value this school has across the state
should please, behave themselves in other
not to bring it down substantially with
criminal behaviours. Understood?!”
“Yes, sir!” the students Chorused and Mr
Anuma’s eyes caught with Jennifer’s.
“Mbakwe!” he called moving closer to her.
“Welcome back. I hope you prepared very
well for this exam”
“Yes, sir” she replied with a low voice
without smiling or looking at him. Mr
Anuma stared at her for a while and
Few minutes later, the exam began.
Everywhere was quiet and calmed as the
students made use of their pen and brain
looking very serious. Only the footsteps of
Mr Anuma and the examiner were head.
Melody turned occasionally to take a look
at Edwin who was writing as fast as
possible, then she wondered how intelligent
he would be.
Tochi laid on her bed imaging how
successful the term ended and what
Wisdom was actually doing at the moment.
She took a thought back to the quiz day
SS2 students rejoiced round the school
with Tochi at the front for few minutes
after school dismissed then Esther, Melody
and Calista cornered her and hugged her
“Now i know the type of job Wisdom was
doing with you” Esther told Tochi.
“Yes oh, he really did a great job!” Melody
“Hmm, I’m so happy for you oh!” Calista
hugged her again and collected the price
from her. Suddenly Wisdom came around.
“The job dealer is here” Esther said.
“Please, let’s give them some privacy” she
added before they left.
Wisdom and Tochi stared at each other for
a while glowing with smiles. Before
Wisdom could say anything, Tochi hugged
him without minding the presence of
“Thank you very much” she said and
disengaged herself immediately.
“I’m so proud of you” Wisdom began. “You
can even do better next time in your SS3”
“But you won’t be around by then” she
Wisdom held her on the shoulder with his
two hands looking into her eyes. “I might
not be around but always remember that
I’m with you” he said.
“Will i ever see you again?”
“Of course you will, where am i going…?”
CONTINUITY FROM TOCHI ON THE BED.
Tochi smiled and glanced at the table by
the corner full of books, then she
remembered Wisdom again. “Will it ever be
like this?” she began to think. “What if he
enters university and forget me? Probably
he will meet girls more beautiful and
intelligent than me, then he will just forget
me” she became sad and walked out
wearing a short white jean skirt.
The examination lasted for two hours.
Student went outside the hall to wait for the
second paper but Jennifer remained inside
folding her question paper gradually. She
slightly turned when she heard Calista and
Melody’s voices who said, “Hi, Jennifer”.
She didn’t respond to them rather stared at
“I’m sorry, my parents prevented me from
seeing you” Calista began..
