The day finally came..I couldn’t sleep through out last night…over anxiety wants to kill..me..I woke up as early as possible as I arranged all my things for my journey..I took my bathe..very fast..and dressed up..waiting for uncle emeka in..the living room..just then mama joined me with my father in the living room..
Mr Johnson:my Lagos daughter..you ve woken up so early..(sits beside theresa)
Mrs Johnson:(sits beside theresa)let’s pray..before your uncle..gets here..
*We sang our usual morning song which every Nigerian knows..”in the morning..early in the morning*after that mama took the lead in prayer..she prayed for journey mercy and also prayed that I receive favour were ever I stepped my feet on..we prayed for like 45minutes..and when we were done..mama and papa gave me words of wisdoms..they advised me..so well and I promised to keep to their words…
Finally uncle emeka arrived with his latest range over car as I hugged mama and papa..uncle emeka packed my luggages inside the boot of the car…
Theresa:I have to go now..
Mrs Johnson:God bless you my daughter..
Mr Johnson:be a good girl..
I rushed into the car with excitement as uncle emeka talked to my parents for a while..and finally he entered the car..as I bidded mama and papa from the window..tears rolls down my cheeks..I can’t believe a grown up sixteen years old girl like me can actually be crying for leaving her parents aside..uncle emeka zoomed off..
The journey to the city took us..hours..to reach the city…I was sitting at the front seat of the car..as I couldn’t remove my eyes from the windows admiring the nature..and how beautiful Lagos was..musics have never heard of and girls and boys walking round the streets..I didn’t see anything like clay pot..I saw tap water..for the first time..though I was been thought how to use it in school..when my home economics teacher explained to us..how to use it..I was enjoying the Cool breeze coming from the windows as uncle emeka broke the silence..he had asked me earlier if I was hungry and of course I told him yes.. despite being a big girl..I don’t joke with my stomach..so we dropped by at a restaurant..I offered for Egusi..soup popularly known as melon soup and akpu..aka fufu..with cold minerals..while uncle emeka offered for jollof rice and chicken..which isn’t my type at all..After we ate..we headed off to uncle emeka’s mansion in Lagos..
(Gate opened by the gateman as emeka droves in..)
Emeka:(gets down from the car)saliu..my guy..
Theresa:(gets down from the car)
Gate man:oga..oga..wetin you bring from village for me na?(staring at theresa while licking his lips disgustingly)

Gate man:no na..I just dey joke..na..oga mi..!(opened the boot as he collected the luggages from the boot..)
Emeka:let’s go in..(exits with Theresa)
*Wow the city is so full of life..I talked to my self while I entered the guest room..I took my bathe..and just sat inside the room quietly as I grabbed one of the novels in my luggages..to keep my self busy.. though I would ve gone to the sitting room but I didn’t like the expression..emeka’s wife gave to me when I arrived..aunty Florence abi wetin Dem call her sef…I don’t even have her time.. she gave me this*don’t snatch my husband look*and it was just so annoying..maybe I shouldn’t have come to Lagos..I started lamenting while reading*
(Emeka and Florence laying on the bed)
Florence:(facing the other side of the bed..)
Emeka:(moved closer to Florence as he wrapped his hands around Florence’s waists)
Florence:(removed his hands as she shifted farther to the end side of the bed)do..nt…touch me..!
Emeka:my love..what is it?why are you acting so strange?last night you were telling me you missed me so much..what happened to that sweet voice of yours..while talking to me through the phone..
Florence:eh..well..you never told me your niece was coming to Lagos..and to even live in this house too..I don’t like it o..I don’t..at all..what is it na?if it’s not your niece..it’s your brother or sister..can’t I live in this house in peace..?
Emeka:Flo..honey..calm down na..please relax..so that’s the reason you are upset..
Florence:of course..at least you should ve informed me..but you didn’t..you just brought her here..telling me she’s going to be schooling in the city from now on ward..in my matrimonial home..
Emeka:relax na..my baby..my darling..my love..(moved closer as he pecked her round her cheeks)give me that thing tonight na..am sorry..no vex..Biko..
Florence:i..I..don’t like it o..I don’t like it..(faced emeka)
Emeka:(kissed florence)I missed you..
Florence:(hissed)have..forgiven you..but don’t ever try that kind of thing again o..
Emeka:sure my wife..so are you giving me that thing or what?
Florence: you and that thing sef..you no dey ever tire..(laid on emeka)
Emeka:eish.. bombshell (grabbed her full buttocks with his hands)
Florence:(riding on emeka’s d--k slowly)
The following morning was a brand new day and also the first day of school..I cant wait to see how Lagos..school was like even though it was just girls boarding school..it would be just like a mini university..I had woken up very early..I arranged the house and even prepared something delicious for breakfast..I dressed up in a long gown..as I packed my well plaited hair which mama made me for me before coming to the city..I already back my bag pack..seated in the dining room..eating as I saw aunty florence and uncle emeka emerge from their room holding hands together..I could see happiness in aunty Florence face this morning.. I’m sure uncle emeka has scored some goals throughout the night..but I really wonder why they haven’t still had a child up till now..hmm only God knows..I spoke to my self..as I finally woked up from my thoughts..I greeted them..
Theresa:Good morning aunty florence..good morning uncle emeka..
Emeka:good morning..my dear..I can see you already woke up so early..for school..(sits as he saw two plates covered on the table)
Florence:good morning..(sits as she opened a plate to see yam and fried eggs)who made this?
Theresa:I..aunty florence..am sure you are going to love it..
Theresa:you are welcome..
*Thank God..o.. she’s happy with me preparing the dish for her and my uncle..Few minutes later we were all done..with our delicious meals as I packed the plates to the kitchen..uncle emeka went upstairs to dress up for work..he was a business man and aunty Florence worked in the bank as well so they went to dress up while I waited for them in the living room..some minutes later they joined me as we all both headed to the car*
(Inside the car)
(Florence and emeka discussing while my eyes were stocked on my romantic novel)
Florence:uhm..theresa I packed in some beverages..and goodies inside your luggages and also your toiletries..as well..so manage it..well and be a good girl o..
Theresa:sure aunty florence..thank you..very much..
Emeka:and any visiting day..I’ll come to your school to give you pocket money.. though you ll be well treated there..but it’s good to ve your own savings..as well..please don’t fall my hand o..
Theresa:of course uncle emeka..I’ll marry my book..
Florence:that’s my girl..*
The name of the boarding /day school was *Brain field high school*Finally we got to the school as uncle emeka droves into the school compound..through the window I sighted some girls dressed in milk colored shirt and red striped skirt with a red beret on their hair..hmm Life*
