Arriving at Gwagwalada was a relief for me, I got to my friend's neighbourhood which was characterised by the big hotel he had described to me - I called him to meet me by the "Aboki's shop" near the hotel
I tried to reply but I immediately got a phone call from my younger brother, "My data has finished" he said during the call & I told him I'd heard him.
I dropped the call & didn't bother replying, I decided to tweet a bit so I go to twitter; I checked my inbox & saw new messages
"Bro Uche help me with my school fees" one read, it ended with account details & I just smiled & ignored. I post a few thoughts, as I went to my notifications I saw a reply that read "make I send account number?"
I just went off twitter & straight to WhatsApp to reply texts!
I got a mail one day & hoped it was from this IT firm I'd applied to for a Procurement expediter role, I looked & luckily it was them!
"Yaay!!" I screamed when it read that I passed the aptitude test & should get ready for the interview.
Biggie Biggie! Heavy Heavy! 😭
I was working with a shipping agency in apapa but needed a proper job so I hoped that I got it, the next day I lied to my boss that grandmother's best friend died; & that I was her god son, & there was a ritual I needed to do.
Luckily he believed & let me take few days off..
On my way home I got to oshodi & there was a gridlock, a tanker fell on the road so there was no movement. I thought of what to do, I brought out my phone & opened my WhatsApp
"How far?" KK sent about an hour ago, I replied him & he said he was stuck in traffic
"Uche! Report to the diary room!" Big Brother said so I hurried, as I was about to climb the stairs to the diary room I tripped & fell.
I suddenly woke up & realized I wasn't even in Small Brother, talk more of Big Brother!
My food is burning!😲
I quickly went to the kitchen & luckily my stew was only slightly burnt, I turned off the gas & started to reflect on the dream I had - I was discussing with Miracle and Nina, then I massaged Koko's back before Big Brother called me.
"What does this dream mean?" I asked myself..
While still pondering I reached for the little raw rice I had left, I decided to boil & eat for the weekend because I was broke & couldn't access money till the following week.
After putting the rice on fire I went to tune my Dstv to channel 198; just to watch Big Brother Naija!
One day I got a DM from Donjazzy saying he loved my story, I almost fainted but I had to remain alive to go verify if it was the original Donjazzy, "it's him!" I said when I verified.
"Thank u🙏" I replied, "Let's meet up" he wrote.
It's Donjazzy Again IDJA
I woke up immediately & saw my DM still open, "it's actually real, Donjazzy DM'd me!" I screamed, I immediately replied to say I was available & he texted me where to meet him.
I closed my app, dropped my phone & went to have my bath. While at it I remembered my crush Kemi..
I had been 'toasting' her for 3 months now & I promised myself that once she says yes I'd breakup with Kiki, "Maybe I'll take a picture with Donjazzy & send to her so that she'll like me more" I thought.
I finished having my bath, dressed up, grabbed my stuff & headed out proud.
My journey of love didn't begin well, I fell in love with Nike in my new school and my life changed.
We called her Nikki, I did everything possible through the help of my new friend KK to woo her but "bad belle" was everywhere.
NIKKI MINAJ 😂😘
The first day in my new school was awkward because I was the only one not putting on a uniform in my class, I was in science class & I took the first day to profile my classmates.
I looked out for the bullies, the 'I too knows', the 'I don't cares' & of course the slay queens.
Subsequent days were better because I got my school uniform on time & life in the new school had started, one afternoon while we were on long break I noticed this fine chocolate girl walking towards me.
It felt like everything around me paused & she was on slow motion.
