ADVENTURE OF A BAD ‘OMO’ PASTOR
My dad came back and it took a long arguement to convince my mum that the part-time was okay.
My mum kept insisting that part-time is just like adult education and its not okay for a young person like me but my dad successfully convinced her that part-time of this days is dominated by young people who didnt make it to full-time program.
All the processes involved was carried out and i was offered admission into YABATECH sch of part-time studies to study Science Laboratory Technology.
Time flew… it was resumption time and i resumed at YABATECH. I got to the HOD’s office for all the document signing to begin registration and she was so fascinated to see someone as young as i was not that i was young in aga but facially i looked young and i wasn’t tall.
She informed me that lectures hold weekdays from 5 – 9pm daily.
I waited for lectures that day and the first day was so hectic.
i got to class at exactly 5pm and the class was already filled with people. I went straight to the front row as i knew that was the only place i could sit if i was to see the board clearly, but there was no empty seat on the front row.
I scanned around the front and my eyes fell on a very beautiful lady on the 3rd row which i fell in love with immediately *and who i still love till date I noticed an empty seat beside her.
I went there and asked if anyone was there and she said ‘no’.
I sat down beside her but couldn’t take my eyes off her. She was so beautiful. I kept picking quick glances at her and sometimes our eyes would meet and we’ll stare at each other for some seconds.
I tried chatting with her but her responce was poor but i wasn’t gonna give up on her.
I pledged right there that i must get her someday.
That day’s lecture was so boring and annoying coupled with the fact that the man refused to explain better, what we didn’t understand.
The class ended and i was so stressed up. I left the school to face another hustle of shuttling myself back to my house which was a far distance from the school. I got home so tired and exhausted from Lagos ‘night traffic’.
Immediately i got home, i took my bath and didn’t even remember to eat anything before sleeping. I woke up in the night with this rumbling sound in my belly. I entered the kitchen and sorted out the riot in my belly before going back to sleep.
The next day, i woke up around 8 but was so tired and had to sleep again till 12pm. I woke up and prepared for school and left the house for school at exactly 1pm. I got to class early enough to see a good seat at the front to sit.
I saw this girl i sat beside, the other day but this time, she was with a guy and they looked like two love birds. I still had my doubts until a saw them kissing. I felt bad but it didn’t change the feeling i had for her. I was crazy in love with her.
I could’t tell if it was infactuation or true love but time would tell. I just couldn’t take my mind of her. Her name was Moyo.
Lectures that day was better than the other day. The lecturer was more lively and explained better.
I was an extremely quiet person, in class and in about 3 weeks, i started having aquaintances who wanted to be friends with me and started having ladies dragging for position of girlfriend but there was one girl i met that caught my fancy.
