Girl of my dream
I was running from no where to some where when I saw Tola being tied to a tree. I st©pped to help her untie the rope. as I was to set her free, two hefty men jumped out from nowhere.
both men:: na you be the person abi?
me:: na me be watin? (looking around maybe I can see any b©dy that can help us escape)
**one of them c@m£ to me telling me that his boss name is Kunle and there’s nothing I can do**
Kunle:: killer, what are you doing with that thing? come let’s kill them na.
Tola was still crying… they tied me to the same tree with her. as they were about to pu-ll the trigger, I don’t know were the sl@p c@m£ from. the sl@p landed on my back, I woke up sweating Christmas goat..
me:: thank God, na dream.
Godwin:: adeb!ow, watin dey happen?
**sorry guys, Godwin is my best friend**
me:: the dream carry school bag with books.. you remember that chikala girl when I tell you say I dey like so?

**Godwin:: **laughing** adeb!ow, you be fool. girl when you no get the courage to talk to, you come dey happy say hvg her for dream.
(sorry guys, Tola is the girl of my dream, the girl I wish to have as my girlfriend but I did not have that courage to woo her and tell her about my feelings)
Godwin:: wait o, they b wan kill you? watin they want?
me:: I don’t know. but one of them tell me say the other guy name na Kunle
Godwin:: you know them
me:: no, satin go make me know them?
Godwin:: this na warning say make you nor go close to that girl.
me:: warning say make I nor love? abeg leave that matter I go summon courage talk to her one day just watch and see..
Godwin:: okay sir, but no talk say I nor warn you…
sitting on our pavement re-ading one novel when I noticed a damsel coming towards me. I raised my head up to see the figure eight. lo and behold it was Tola. (for my mind I said God don catch you today, if I nor pour my hear give you make I know watin cause am.
Tola:: good morning **with angelic voice**
me:: good morning how may I help you? ( pretending not to know her)
Tola:: plea-se is this Mrs Fausat’s house?
me:: (see English. me when I nor fit speak fluently, how I take cope with her now? anyway I no go fall my hand) yes anything? **I don’t know the house but have to convince her so I can know what she wants**
Tola:: **smiling** can you show me Kunle’s room plea-se?
me:: **flashed back to my dream** babe, actually this not her house but go that way you will see the house **pointing to the next 7th building..
Tola:: thank you… she left
immediately she left, something just just pushed me to follow her. I have no choice than to follow my mind.. I trail her to the house. I saw the Kunle. he c@m£ out from the room hvgging her f0rç£fully. I wan go meet them but fear grip me instantly. I ran back home feeling dejected.

I was lost in my thought when Godwin barge in.
