Written by :seunnzzy
I woke up with the ray of light shining into my room signifying that we are in the morning.
I quickly stood up to take my bath thinking that I’m late for school, then i remembered.
Me: (hiss) today is even Saturday.
Then i went downstairs to meet both my parents singing and dancing.
Me: Good morning mom, Good morning Dad.
Mum & Dad : Good morning
Me: mr & mrs peters do you win visa lottery.
Mom: Mike guess what
Me: hmmm….. You are pregnant
Mom: c’mon mike…. Of course not. guess again
Me : Dad you better tell me you know i cant guess.
Dad: son i have been promoted to manage one of our company in oyo state.
Me: wow congrats Dad……. So does that mean we are relocating to oyo state.
Dad: yes son….. The company already given us a house there ,so lets start packing we’re leaving by next week.
(after 5 days)
We just arrive at our new house and i was marvel with what i see,the house is a mansion
Dad: home sweet home……….wooow….i said
Mom: This is beautiful
Dad:yeah it is……. C’mon let’s go inside.
(on Sunday) .
I was with my dad in our new house watching a movie .
Dad: michael…….you will be starting school tomorrow… I’ve spoken with the principal of your new school.. And I’ve settled everything………and the principal said that he will send the school uniform, so i want you to be prepared .
Me: what is the name of the school.
Dad: Garfield High School………..
You are going to like it over there……. So try to make friends
Dad, You know i don’t like making friends….. Even in my previous school i only have 1 friend…i said
Dad: ok suit yourself…… Just be a good boy .
(fast forward to the next day)
Grrrrrrgh…… My alarm just woke me.
I quickly stood up to get ready for my new school.
Immediately i finished dressing….. I went downstairs to meet my dad already dressed .
Dad: let me drop you off at the school
Me: alright dad, lets go i don’t want to be late on my first day
Mom: wont you have ur breakfast
Me: not today mom..(walking out)
Dad: bye dear……
…. Bye love…… My mom answered.
I Came out of the car and looked at the look at the school…… It was really beautiful.
You like what you see…….my dad said…. I just nodded
Dad: so you need to go to the principal office, he will show you your class ok.
Alright dad…….. I answered .
Then he left,
Garfield high school here i come… I said to myself.
(unknown to me it is just the beginning of something tragic) ..
Now I’m suppose to go to the principal office,I was admiring the school when I bump into one beautiful girl.
unknown girl: Hey idiot,can’t you see??
Me: I’m sorry I didn’t see you .
unknown girl: yeah you didn’t cause you are blind.(she hissed as she walk away).
i was perplex with the attitude of that girl, I kept starring at her as she was going until a guy came to me,
unknown boy: don’t mind her that’s how she behaves.
Hi ….I’m joshua but you can call me josh.
Me: hi I’m Michael nice meeting you
Josh: same here
Me: do you mind showing me the principal office
Josh: of course let’s go
After finishing the registration,the principal put a call through one of the teacher and my guess is that it is my class teacher.
My guess was confirmed when a lady in her early thirties walked into the principal’s office.
C. Teacher: sir you call for me
Principal : yes i did…… This boy here is our new student and he’s going to be in your class.
C. Teacher :ok sir
This is your class teacher mrs sharon….. the principal said.
Me : good morning ma
Mrs Sharon : good morning how are you??
Me: I’m fine
Mrs Sharon: ok… Follow me let’s go to your class .
I followed the teacher to a room full of students, i quickly use my eyes to calculate everyone, there are only 11 girls 8 boys including me which is going to 20 student all together.
They all stand up to greet when they notice the presence of the teacher.
