Few weeks later*****
“How are you, haven’t heard from you for a while” That was Kenny’s text message to me. I smiled and called her, telling her I travelled, and my simcard got missing.
“I heard what you did with my gf, and I want to say thank you to you” she said. I feigned ignorance and was trying to probe exactly what she meant by that.
“Hope you have done your test” She asked
“What test are you talking about” I asked back with my heartbeat increasing in quick succession.
“Keep asking me, and this will be the last thing I will say to you. See you somewhere soon” She said before terminating the call. I tried calling back but to no avail because she didn’t pick. I almost broke down in tears but I consoled myself.
“The doctors did lots of tests, so no need of that” I said to myself, and that was the inspiration I needed. I quickly faced other things I was doing before the call.
I was back to square one; broke, lean and was looking dejected. I was waiting for our call-up letter for service from our school, and also our certificates.
******Few week after*******
I was rushing down to school and after the prayers in the morning, mummy wished me well to go and collect the result and make her proud. Daddy laughed at the whole prayer ceremony.
“He has failed, so there is no need of all these whole drama” Daddy said
“Please leave us in peace and stop prophesying badly” Mummy yelled at him. I left the house and started my lonely journey down to school. All through the way, my heart kept beating like it was gonna jump out of my body.
I reached the school, after exchanging pleasantries with former friends and foes, and also answering questions about why I was looking ill, I quickly stood in line for my turn. Despite my calculations of my G.P myself, I was still falling below second class upper, that made me shed inner tears when I saw some other guys juming up as they sw their perfect result.
My name was called, and I quietly went inside the exams and record office.
“You… “The sister shouted. Well, I wasn’t surprised, seeing such a notorious person like I was in such a prayerful and calm mood, everyone would be surprised too. She opened the file, and I kept trying to see what I had. She asked me to sign some papers first, and I tried signing but my hands kept failing me by shaking so much.
“Breath in and out” She said to me, but it wasn’t working. I needed help, and someone came along to hold my hands and stabilize it. I finally signed it, before I heard the next thing.
“Everybody go out” The sister said as she stood up and locked the door…
“Oh my God”… I shouted!!!
