I woke up very late the
next day. I left home
without having breakfast.
by the time I got to the
school, our first lecture was
already over. I later found out
that the lecturer took
attendance in class and said
that 10marks would be
awarded for the attendance.
while I sat alone in the class
blaming myself for waking up
late, Sharon approached me.
“hi Christian, how is your
body now?” she asked.
“I’m fine now” I answered
“why are you sitting here
alone? aren’t you going for the
next lecture?” she asked.
I didn’t answer her.

she moved closer to me
“what’s the problem? you
don’t look happy” she said
“I heard that the lecturer took
attendance in class and would
award mark for it” I said
“yes that’s true” she
“that means I have lost 10
marks just like that” I said
“is that why you are sad?” she
“you don’t have to worry
about that. I was the one that
marked the attendance. Do you
think I would mark the
attendance without marking
you present, whether you were
in class or not”
“you marked me present” I
said happily
“yes” she responded.
I couldn’t describe how happy
I was at that moment. now I
know the benefit of having
your course rep as a friend.
“thank you very much. I’m
very grateful” I said
“okay, now that you know you
didn’t lose the mark, let’s start
going for our next lecture” she
I stood up immediately and we
headed straight to the class
our next lecture was holding.
we sat together during the
lecture and when the lecture
was over, she followed the
lecturer to his office.
It was already time for lunch
by the time the class ended. I
was very hungry. I didn’t have
breakfast before leaving home.
I couldn’t go to the school
cafeteria to have lunch because
I was scared of seeing Kate and
her friends in the cafeteria.
who knows what they might
demand from me this time, if
they see me in the cafeteria.
what they did to me the
previous day was still fresh in
my mind.

I tried to bear the hunger
until I get home but couldn’t. I
could hear the rumbling in my
stomach, which showed that
the worms in my stomach
were already protesting. while
I was trying to console the
worms in my stomach,
Mustack approached me.
“guy how far” he said
“I’m good and you”
“I’m good bro” he responded.
“so where are you heading” I
“I’m going to the school
cafeteria to have lunch” he
‘thank God’ I said silently and
heaved a sigh of relief. Having
Mustack by my side would
boost my confidence. I was
sure I wouldn’t have to spend
on Kate and her friends when
Mustack is right beside me.
“I was about going to the
cafeteria to have lunch also” I
said to Mustack
“then let’s go together” he said
we went to the cafeteria and
ordered for food. just when we
were about to start eating,
Sylvia walked into the
cafeteria. my heart missed a
beat when I saw her. she went
to the counter to order for
food. she received her food
her went to occupy the seat at
the far left. I thought of telling
Mustack about Sylvia behavior
towards me. maybe he would
know the reason why she
behaved that way towards me.
“Mustack” I called
“yes” he answered
“Sylvia seems to be angry with
me” I said
“what happened?” he asked
“I don’t know. I paid for her
fare when I realized she was in
the same bus with me, but
instead for her to thank me,
she got mad at me” I said
“do you like her?” Mustack
His question got me confused.
I was saying someone got mad
at me because I paid her fare
and he was asking if I like her.
“I never said I like her” I
“if you can’t seem to get your
mind off what she did to you,
that means you like her” he
“no, I don’t like her” I said
“your behavior shows that you
like her. why not approach her
and tell her how you feel” he
“Mustack I don’t like her” I
said in serious tone.
“maybe I will help you talk to
her” he said.
“please don’t try it” I pleaded.
“I will. you have to learn how
to approach ladies. I have
noticed you don’t know how to
approach ladies.” he said
“please Mustack, don’t say
anything to her. I don’t like
her” I pleaded
Mustack stood up and walked
toward Sylvia. I watched as he
approached her. The moment
he sat down beside her, I stood
up immediately and took to
my heels. I ran as fast as I
If she could react the way she
did when I only tried to pay
her fare, who knows how she
would react when Mustack tells
her that I like her
