We enter the principal office and met him
seating on his chair while some teachers
stood erect watching us like we are bunch
of criminals which increases my heartbeat
ten times higher.
“wealth what happened yesterday why
were you not in School and also refused to
answer my call? “.the principal poured out
questions on me the moment we step in
and I became scared not sure of where to
start my explanation from.
“did you purposely did it?”.he asked again
interrupting my words.
“yes sir, I purposely did it,i could not just
take what tochukwu said to me two days
ago”.i explained staring at the floor out of
“wisdom wealth!”.he called with a high pitch
“it seems the love I have bestowed on you
since you came to this school has gotten
into your head.you left your responsibility
just because of what a boy said. Do you
know what you have cost with that stupid
act of yours?, what if we had lost to them
being kicked out of the round just because
of that silly behavior of yours?”.he shouted
and I listen attentively without uttering any
word.so they didn’t lost the match?,that is
“the activities in this school should be your
number one priority, I ask again what if we
“He insulted my mom”.i shouted interrupting
“is that enough reason to leave the school
when we need you most?.did you report to
me?, you were willing to throw away all we
have work for since this term started is that
pride you are emanating now or what?. You
were angry with what he told you and you
took the most dangerous punishment on
the whole School not just him alone, a
punishment that put your best friend In the
“yes hospital,vincent is in the hospital he
had a fracture on his leg yesterday just
because he cherish the good sweat you
both have work together. He tried to play
your wing and also his own too as the
replacement made on you was unable to do
anything and he broke his leg in the process
just because of your stupid excuse.what if
Gabriel did the same thing you did
yesterday?,what if he abandoned us too the
way you did? What would have happen, tell
me wisdom”.hearing all the principal said
weaken me completely as Isabella suddenly
left her hold on me resting her back on the
wall. I don’t blame her though I really
messed up big time, I let my anger to cloud
my judgement and now everyone is been
punished for it including my best friend,
how will I apologize to Vincent,will he ever
“Isabella okenwa go to the visitors toilet and
call tochukwu Desmond for me, tell him to
abandon the punishment for now he will
“OK sir”.isabella responded and she left
while I stood fighting with my emotions.
Tochukwu walked in sweating profusely
unable to look at my face as he walk pass
me while Isabella rested her back on the
wall again like before.
“tochukwu Desmond”.the principal called
and tochukwu raised his head slowly in
“I have just one question for you and it goes
like this,upon all the opportunities you have
in the match were you able to score
anyone?”.he asked again and tochukwu
shake his head negatively.
“have you ever ask your self why we placed
you as a midfielder instead of a striker?”.
“no sir”.he replied.
“because we discover that is Your best
position,that is what you are good at so we
placed you there. I would have told you to
start Your punishment yesterday but I
decided you should play the game First and
you end up playing nonsense “.the principal
shouted in an excruciating angry voice
Which trigger fear in me as I stood
motionless in a spot watching The scenario.
“am sorry sir!”.tochukwu retorted slowly.
“am i the person you offended?”.
“then apologize to him not me”.
“am sorry senior wisdom”.tochukwu said
and I stare at him with my gaze directly
fixed on him not knowing the best answer
to reply him.
“tochukwu,all this started last week,we were
in good shape before and you started
hating on me from last week.tell Me, where
did i wrong you?”.i ask and He raised up his
head slowly and stare at my face then he
returned it to the floor.
“you didn’t offend me in anyway,it was my
father that poison my mind against you, he
said I am always the best and I played more
than anyone else in the field, he said
Isabella’s dad gave you a car as award for
your performances in the field whereas I
should be the one receiving the glory. In my
formal school I was the best I never knew a
day is coming where I will meet someone
that is more than me,it was my father that
told me you are taking our glory,i am sorry”.i
listen to tochukwu explanation and I find
out he really meant all his word.according to
him he thought he was the best until he
came to this school and meet me, will I really
meet my match one day?, well only time will
“I have forgiven you tochukwu”.i finally said
with a bright smile.
“thank you so much senior”.he replied
“you mean Chief Desmond Jonah told you all
this? “.the principal asked an tochukwu
nodded in affirmative.
“Hmmm Desmond will never stop poisoning
peoples mind with Evil just for his selfish
interest”.he said again though it was less
coherent but we heard it clearly but we dare
not ask what he meant by that even when
we were really Curious to know.
“well because of your father word’s am
adding another punishment to it, from now
on you will be bench in any of our matches
and will only play when need be. That is
your punishment since your father is trying
to set my students against themselves let me
see how he will do that if you don’t play
anymore, now you can go and continue
your punishment”.the principal elucidated
and tochukwu left with a sorrowful
expression. I wish the principal could put an
end to his punishment cos I could feel his
“as for you wisdom, I have nothing to tell
you anymore,go and apologise to Vincent he
is in St. Theresa general hospital.if he choose
to forgive you good for you and if he don’t,
that is also your punishment”.
“thank you sir”.i replied and I left the office
followed by Isabella..
School that day was partially fun as adaeze
and Lilian really spent time with I and
Isabella explaining all the crones and Hidden
fact of the game to us and how tochukwu
spoiled their game by trying to score which
yield no positive result. According to her,the
match was really a strong locked horn, if not
for the help of Gabriel who dedicated his life
to the game standing like a rock of ages at
the post they would have dealt with us
needlessly and it was all my fault. Now I
understand why the principal was very mad
at me, the match actually end in our favour
with one goal to nothing through a penalty
which was awarded to us when Vincent
was injured while trying to score a goal and
the penalty was later scored by matt.i
Thankgod for everything,thankgod I was
given another Chance to make things right,
at times anger is not the best solution to
problems, make decisions when angry and
you will end up making the best decision
you will ever regret.
We drove hastily on the m’baise road in
ezenite heading to St. Theresa hospital on
the hot crunching sun which could be seen
shinning brightly reminding us that we
were in the dry season.adaeze and Anabel
were also in my car they actually told their
driver to take their car home and we use
mine for the hospital journey which I dislike
so much.i hate everything about hospitals
and I never pray to visit anyone again in my
life time but here I am left with no other
choice than to go and visit my friend who
my stupid angry mind placed in the position
he is now,it is all my fault.
We got to the hospital and a nurse directed
us to the ward Vincent was and we saw him
laying on the bed with his Right foot
stretched up and it was bandaged all
around.he was surprise when he saw all of
us together and my friends hug him one
after the other while I stood taking a step at
a time moving toward him on the bed
slowly with guilt written all over me while he
stare at me without saying anything maybe
wondering what am up to. I got closer to
him and he stretched his hand to place me
in a hug but I did the opposite,i bend down
and knelt down taking his right hand and i
busted into tears of pains which I was
trying to hold from falling since I step my
feet inside the hospital.
“am sorry Vincent,this is all my fault am very
sorry”.i said amidst tears crying in his hand
and He manage to stand up patting me on
“don’t be too hard on yourself brother,you
did what need to be done I would have
done more if I was in Your shoe”.
“really!,you are not angry with me?”.i asked
staring at his eyeballs.
“for leaving tochukwu,yes I am Angry with
you even though I know it was Isabella’s
fault but for taking the drastic decision of
leaving us to our fate with the royal
comprehensive high school, am not angry
with you but promise me something”.he
said and I smiled brushing off my tears with
the back of my palm.
“anything.tell me I will do it”.i elucidated
happily and he smiled while including
Anabel and adaeze the two friends greater
“promise me you will never allow your anger
to make decisions for you ever again”.
“I promise,i promise Vincent.i will never
allow it to take decisions for me again”.i said
and we hug eachother happily.
“friends for life”.we both coerced together
then the girls Join us too and we hug
“friends for life!!!”.we shouted together
hugging for minutes only to hear a cough
from our back and we dessengaged to see a
man who looks like Vincent and a woman
whom I presume to be his wife staring at us
in a transfixed spot.
“mom,dad meet my friends from school they
came to check on me”.Vincent retorted with
a bright smile filled with happiness.
“are they the ones you usually talk about at
home?”.the man asked and he nodded in
affirmative while we all stood like the good
friends we are Lolz.
“oh,that is good,i have always been looking
forward to meet the friends that always
make my son super happy “.his Mom said
with a bright smile.
“thank you ma”.we all said at the same time
smiling too.i must accolade Vincent parents
for their cool behaviors, I thought they are
gonna start questioning us just like some
Africans parents or maybe the questioning
part as not yet arrived.
“you must be Isabella right?,the only
daughter of Chief okenwa”.Vincent mom
“ohh, what a beauty,my son is actually right
when he said non is as beautiful like you on
the full spherical earth”.she added and
“thanks MA,am blushing”.Isabella retorted.
“oh spare me that am sure you must be
used to praises of your beauty by now. And
you, you must be wisdom wealth the new
student that has succeeded in conquering
the whole prestigious kings academy in just
4 weeks”.Vincent dad ask this time and I
smiled. Alright,i think Vincent as told his
parent too much about us already which is
not cool or maybe it is I don’t know though.
“yes sir,i am”.i replied and he smiled also
with his wife.
“ok now the friends that are more than
twins,you must be Anabel”.Vincent dad
retorted pointing at adaeze and we smiled.
“no honey,i think it is adaeze “.
“I don’t think it is adaeze, she is Anabel”.
“ok I settled for adaeze”.his mother said.
“and I settle for Anabel,the winner will cook
dinner today”.Vincent dad said with so
much confidence while we all stood at our
various spot laughing our ass including
Vincent who was laughing so hard at his
parents funny behaviour on the bed he was
“alright,it is a bet so young girl what is your
name?”.Vincent mom asked adaeze.
“I am adaeze chukwu and this is my best
friend or twin sister as people usually refer
to us her name is anabel Martin’s”.
“yepeeee!!,yippee yepppee,i won this
one”.Vincent mom shouted dancing and
throwing punches in the air while his father
face went pale like a child catching cold,now
I know where Vincent got his funny
behaviors from,a snake can never give birth
to a rabbit.
“am going to eat Idi’ka ikong soup and
grilled chicken With pounded yam today o”.
“what!!. you know I can’t prepare that
please you will have to choose another soup
please”.Vincent dad pleaded with a shocking
“kikikikik, that is what I want to eat, next
time you will not argue with your wife
“please honey,you know am not a Calabar
man please choose another food”.Vincent
dad pleaded while we stood laughing so
hard, this people are really awesome how I
wish my dad is still alive.
“you made the bet, beside me that is
preparing it am I a Calabar woman?”.
“nope,but maybe…… “.
“better.you better go for online class on
how to prepare it I don’t want to eat the
poison you cooked the last time you tried to
prepare it”.Vincent mom elucidated filled
with a serious countenance.
Our stay in the hospital was filled with
laughter and fun throughout by the two
funny couple’s and their son who later
joined giving us the best fun ever to the
extent that we were reluctant to go when it
was getting dark but ofcourse we have no
choice than to go after which Isabella gave
the man Five bundles money To take care of
Vincent promising to come back the next
day which we did with the principal and
some staffs in the school.
__________THREE DAYS LATER__________
It was a bright Saturday afternoon as usual
the sun was busy doing what it know how
to do best and why it was created.there was
nothing to do rather than to read,eat and
play video games as I had already done all
the house chores that morning . My mom is
no longer selling things and she has gone
out to Visit a friend leaving only me at home
except ofcourse my driver and
gateman.isabella dad promised to open a
supermarket for my mom which he as not
done yet though I know he is working on it
but I still don’t like the idea of my mom
working joor afterall we are not lacking
anything and the six companies and the
account will be mine the moment am
through with my studies so why will my
mom be working?,Mteew.isabella had called
me earlier that she is on the way to my
house and I have been expecting her since
passing the time with another Etz sky Prince
collection which he titled the S. T. A. R
season 2 (Restoration of krypton).i have
read the first season which was super
interesting which was the reason why I
started combing bookshops in ezenite alas I
got it and just like expected the writer finish
work on it even more than the season one.
Isabella walked in through the opened door
looking super stunning as always in her
pink leggings and pink top and I became
lost feeding my eyes with her Beauty
oblivious of what I was doing as my
memory became blank and the only thing
visible for me at that time is her sparkling
beauty before me.
“hello!!!”.she shouted which brought me out
of the beautiful world I was back to reality.
“oh, sorry welcome”.i managed to say totally
“mteew,keep on staring at something that
can never depart from you. Go ln and dress
up we are going out”.she elucidated seating
on the same couch with me.
“going out?”.i asked cos that was the first
time she is saying that and I Wonder where
we are going to.
“yes,or are you not happy with that?”.
“ofcourse I am but to where?”.
“we are going to my House”.she bluntly
elucidated and unknown fear flew out of no
where and gripped my body totally.
