Chester was as handsome as Wisdom with a dark complexion. He was born with a silver spoon and everything that concerns him must be carefully taken care of. Though, he was in the same SS3 with Wisdom but in different class. He waited patiently under a tree for him to come outside from the principal’s office. The morning wind blew his shirt continuously reminding him that he ought to be inside his classroom. Suddenly, he saw Wisdom coming out of the office, then he ran to him.


“Xup bro”


“Guy, I’m gonna make this girl’s life miserable in this school”.


“Take it easy bro, things are not done that way”


“Imaging this girl slapped me!”


“I’m sorry, but you shouldn’t use it against her. I guess she’s a new comer”


“Yes, she is”


“Take heart bro, I’m going into my class now”

They shook hands and Chester left into his class.


As Wisdom wanted to enter to his class too, he stumbled on Melody who was also walking out.


“Watch where you are going!” She shouted. Before Wisdom could react, she hissed and walked away.


Wisdom entered and found Calista and Jennifer staring at him smiling. Other students seemed unconcern as they were having conversation.


“Why are you staring at me like that?” Wisdom asked Calista and Jennifer before others attentions were drawn.


“I’m sorry, sir” Calista replied but Jennifer didn’t say a word. After Wisdom sat on his seat with his face down on his locker, sooner did he feel a soft delicate hand on his shoulder, then he faced up just to see the owner of the hand.


“Sorry for the insult exhibited by that local girl” Jennifer said with a low voice still with her hand on his shoulder. “But who is the girl?” she asked..



Esther, Melody and Chester were in the same class, SS3B while Wisdom, Calista and Jennifer were in SS3A. Meanwhile, Tochi was in SS2B.


Esther saw how angrily Melody walked into the class then she was moved to ask why but she didn’t say a word to her.


“I wonder what her problem is” She told Chester.


“Me too” he replied.


“Imaging how Wisdom was embarrassed this morning by that girl” she changed the topic.


“Yeah, and he’s really angry about it”


“Who’s the girl by the way?”


“I don’t know, i think she’s a new comer. I saw her walking into SS2 classroom”


Esther became quiet and spaced out in thought. She was also wishing to have Wisdom everyday. Chester noticed her quietness, then he asked, “Are you okay?”


She realised herself and smiled. “I’m okay” she replied.


“Are you sure?”


“Yeah, I’m okay” she adjusted her seat still smiling,



Jennifer was still expecting Wisdom to answer her question looking straight into his eyes.


“According to the principal, she’s a new student that just resumed school” Wisdom replied.


“Are you upset about her attitude?”


“Why not? And i must make sure she pays!”


Jennifer smiled nd gently sat down beside him still with her hand on his shoulder. Calista stood at a distance watchin her movement. Even Wisdom was surprised of d way Jennifer behaved. So he stared at her.


“Do you know what?” Jennifer began. “I will help you make her life miserable”


“No, i don’t need your help”


“I’m only trying to help you”




“Is it a crime now to help a friend?”

Wisdom kept quiet looking at her in amazement.


“Can i ask you something?” she demanded staring at him.


“What is it?”


“Will u..” Jennifer wanted to respond but the presence of a teacher who entered interrupted her. “Never mind” she concluded and went to her seat. Before she stood up, she gave him an attractive look, then Wisdom became surprise.



On the other hand, Tochi sat quietly in her seat when Mr Anuma entered with only a packet of chalk. They greeted and sat down. He was surprised to see Tochi in the classroom.


“Hey, stand up” he pointed her.


“Me?” someone beside Tochi asked.


“No, i mean the green horn”


“Are you talking to me, sir?” Tochi asked.


“Yes, stand up”


“But sir, i don’t have a green horn. I’m not an animal” all the class laughed.


“That’s not what i meant. A green horn simply means a new person. Aren’t you a new comer?”


“I am sir”


“What’s your name?”


“My name is Tochi, sir”


“Your full name?”


“Desmond Tochukwu”


“Well, i hope you know what it takes to be in this class?”


“Yes, sir”


“Alright, who is a bacteriologist?”


Tochi began to scratch her head. It was obvious she didn’t know the answer. Then Mr Anuma turned to other students. “Who is a bacteriologist?” he asked again.


Suddenly, Tochi raised up her hand.

“Okay, tell us Tochi”


“A bacte…”


“Bacteriologist” Mr Anuma helped.


“It is someone who studies battery” Tochi answered and Mr Anuma smiled. He could see boldness on her face and body. Though, she could behave like an illiterate but she wasn’t. Seeing her make an attempt to the question encouraged Mr Anuma d more.


“My dear” he began. “A bacteriologist is a person who studies bacteria not a battery, okay?”


“Okay, sir”


“You may sit down”

Tochi smiled.


She had an amazing beauty hidden inside her. The funniest part of her is that nobody around her becomes bored and she is very social without minding who you are. Tochi is her name.


The classroom was so quiet as Mr Anuma put down his knowledge on the board. After he was through, he turned and looked at the quiet students. He could see Tochi seriously making sure that she write down something. Then he gently walked to her with his hands behind him. His footsteps was the only sound that echoed in the classroom.


“What position did you take in your previous school?” Mr Anuma asked Tochi.


“I was always taking last sir” she replied without looking at him.


“But why? I can see you are serious to learn”


“Yes sir, and i must make sure i don’t take last position again”


“Do you really want that?”


“Yes sir”


Mr Anuma kept quiet. He saw the passion in her to achieve her goal. As he looked at her book, his eyes caught her voluminous b—-t dangling above her bra. He walked away instantly to avoid further temptation.


“Class, see you later, make sure you don’t evolve yourself with nefarious activities” Mr Anuma began to walk out.


Of course the students were used to his grammar. Some giggled while some wondered the meaning of ‘nefarious’. Even Tochi stopped writing when she heard the unfamiliar word.


“Excuse me sir!” she interrupted Mr Anuma from going out and all the students looked at her.


“Yes, Desmond, any problem?”


“Sir, what is..” she scratched her head. “..what is.. ne-fa-ri-ous?” she stressed it and Mr Anuma smiled and was surprised at the same time because no student had ever asked him the meaning of any of his grammar.


“Nefarious simply means wickedness or not moral. So i told you not to evolve yourself with wicked or immoral activities. Understood?”


“Yes sir!” Tochi smiled and sat down while Mr Anuma also smiled out shaking his head.


“This your teacher will kill somebody with grammar oh!” Tochi told Linda, her next partner.


“Hmm..” Linda began. “You are yet to hear grammars and nobody will tell you to get a dictionary by force”





“This your teacher will kill somebody with grammar oh!” Tochi told Linda, her next partner.


“Hmm..” Linda began. “You are yet to hear grammars and nobody will tell you to get a dictionary by force”




“Yes oh!”


“I must learn from him”


“Are you serious?”


“Yes nah. And i like him too”


“Everybody likes Mr Anuma”


“What’s your name?”




“My name is..”


“Tochi” Linda interrupted smiling.


“How do you know?”


“Your name rings bell. Just today you started school, everybody knows your name” they laughed.


“But wait oh” Tochi stopped and Linda looked at her in anticipation.


“What is it?” she asked.


“There is no bell on my name o. How can you say dat my name is ringing bell? Stop it oh!” Tochi joked smilin and Linda laughed uncontrollably even some students who heard her.





Students hung around the school compound while others strolled with their friends. Linda sat with Tochi under a tree watching boys playing football and others riding bicycles. Tochi saw Wisdom walking gently with Chester. They were the most handsome boys girls admired. In fact, Calista had her eyes on Chester.


“I hate that boy!” Tochi told Linda pointing at Wisdom.


“You mean Wisdom?”




“Hmm.. Someone that girls are dying for”




“Can’t you see how handsome he is?”


“Just that?”




“Nonsense!” Tochi hissed and opened her book.


On the other hand, Wisdom and Chester also sighted them from afar. They stood at a spot gazing at them.


“I hate that girl!” Wisdom told Chester.


“You mean Tochi the green horn?”


“Yes. She’s so annoying! I told you i must make her life miserable”


“Calm down, bro” Chester made use of his inner eyes. “But guy” he called.




“The girl no bad oh”


“What do you mean?”


“She’s beautiful, you know”


“That’s nonsense!” Wisdom walked out moving towards them.


“Hey bro, where are you going to?!” Chester followed him. As they walked to Tochi and Linda, Esther and Jennifer monitored them from a distance-but they weren’t together.


Wisdom slowed down when he got to the presence of Tochi and Linda expecting them to greet him.


“Good day, seniors” Linda greeted and looked at Tochi who frowned her face.


“Should i remind you that you suppose to greet?” Wisdom referred to Tochi but she kept quiet.


“Tochi, greet nah!” Linda exclaimed. “He has the right to punish you if you don’t greet him” yet Tochi kept quiet.


“I can see you are stubborn. I demand that you kneel down now” Wisdom said. He ran out of patience and called other senior prefects to make her kneel down. They dragged off her stool in a away she fell on the ground.


“Come on kneel down!” one of them shouted raising the stool up to hit her. Tochi wanted to fight back but the pressure from the angry boys made her to obey instantly after she had received slaps.


“Seniors please, forgive her” Linda pleaded rubbing her palms together.


“What you are doing is not good oh!” Tochi shouted from the floor and another senior student gave her a slap which she couldn’t bear anymore. She stood up angrily to fight back but another person hit her back on the ground.


“You must learn how to obey!!”


The drama attracted several people, even Calista, Jennifer and Esther. Of course, Melody saw what was happening but she refused to go.


Tochi was made to carry her stool up as she knelt down by force. When people gathered around pleading for Wisdom to forgive her, tears ran down her eyes.

“You have to release her” Esther told him.


“He will not release her! This girl is insultive!” Jennifer opposed standing beside Wisdom and Esther looked at her angrily standing behind Tochi.


“Please, Wisdom, tell her to stand up” she pleaded again.


“Don’t try it Wisdom!” Jennifer defended again.


“Jennifer stop!” Esther became more angry.


“And if i don’t what will you do?!”

They gazed at each other silently without saying a word.


“I will leave her in one conditions” Wisdom began. “In a condition that she greets politely and do frog-jump”


Hearing that, Tochi’s tears increased. Esther could see how her hands were vibrating longing to go down from the heavy wooden stool. She gazed at Wisdom in a way she shows; Do you really want to do this?


“Bros, let the girl be” Chester also pleaded but Wisdom stood by his words.


“Come on, stand up and greet him!” a prefect shouted at Tochi.


Everybody watched her stood up and dried her tears. She stood before Wisdom and said, “Good day”


“Good day who?” Jennifer asked.


“Good day senior” Tochi corrected.


“Now the frog-jump!”


“Jennifer is okay!” Esther shouted at her but she kept quiet waiting for Tochi to carryout the punishment.


“Frog-jump” Wisdom also insisted and Tochi began to jump with her hands on her ears and tears in her eyes. As she jumped, Wisdom walked out followed by Jennifer and Chester. Everybody dispersed leaving only Tochi, Esther and Linda.


“Please, stand up” Esther rushed and helped her up semutanuoisly with Linda. “Is okay, stop crying”


“I warned you to greet them but you wouldn’t listen” Linda said.


“I will also become a senior one day oh” Tochi cried.


“Yes, you will” Esther smiled and all got seated. “I want to be your friend” she added, then Tochi stared at her.


“No problem” she replied.
