Hey Ann why are you slee-ping in my clas-s?’ Mrs
busayo asked while she wra-pped her hands on
my shoulders mildly. ‘ma I’m uhm’ I tried to explain
but it failed suddenly I covered my mouth and ran
out of the clas-s to the school toilet and I vomited
on the bathtub then after I washed my mouth and I
made my way back to the clas-s with pains all over
‘Ann are you okay?’ Mrs Busayo questioned my
arrival back to the clas-s
‘Yes Ma its just a slight fever’ I replied her.
‘See me after this clas-s’ Mrs Busayo demanded
I went to my seat and sat down relaxing my
head on t©p of my desk and continued slee-ping.
The school bell ranged and I woke up meaning
I’ve been slee-ping while three subjects were taught
because health since was the first subject followed
by three other subjects before break.
I left the clas-s to Mrs Busayo’s office.
‘Good afternoon- Good morning Ma’ my voice stammered
‘Ehen Ann you’re here. Sit down’ Mrs Busayo
permitted while she dropped her pen to give full
attention to my pres£nce i drew the chair that was

Mrs Busayo ordered.

doctor and pleaded with the doctor to s£nd the
results to her as text message when it’s re-ady my
Mom drove off the hospital giving me money to
board a taxi to school since we were not going the
same way I arrived my school and the day’s
activities went normal when the bell for closing
was ranged sudden fear overtook me knowing my
Mom was going to skin me alive when I get home.
When I was at a far range to my house my heart
was about falling as the beat rate of my heart
increa-sed, when it remained a foot to the gate I
said to my self ‘since my Step father is behind
everything no nee-d to fear’ I smilled and opened
