“What’s going on there?” Micheal asked.
“Who are you?” Tony yelled.
“You dey craze. What are you doing to the boy?”

Having watched the whole drama Omolayo and
Jummy pushed their way out of the crowd as they
came to segun’s aid by applying some first aid
drugs on the wounds.
“Segun. Are you alright?” Omolayo asked.
“Yeah. Am okay.” segun replied.
“Let me help you with water.” Nike said as she tried
removing a bottled water from her school bag.
“No, don’t bother yourself.” Omolayo said and
looked at her murdrously before she hissed.
Segun and his friends walked round the school,
leaving Olanike, Jummy and Omolayo behind. By the
time they arrived Olanike was nowhere to be found.
Segun dialled her number but his calls were
He left ikolaba and went back to his centre only to
see Olanike alight from a bike. He ran to her but she
walked into the school compound. There he met
Caleb, his seatmate.
“Hey, shegzy.” Caleb greeted.
“How far.” he replied.
“What happened to you in Ikolaba?” Caleb asked.
“I’ll tell you later.” Segun told him as he ran past
him in chase of Olanike.
“Bad news spread faster than good news.” he
thought to himself.
Segun ran after Nike as she increeased her pace.
“Nike… Nike..,” he called as he ran.
She ignored him and entered the exam hall but took
the other exit and got out again to the back of the
hall. Segun entered the hall and couldn’t find her.
He asked the candidates in the hall but they all
claimed they saw no one.
He got out and began searching for her. He saw her
afar, seated in a deserted part of the school. He ran
“Nike, what’s wrong with you?” he asked angrily.
“Did i tell you anything is wrong with me?” she
He walked up to her and held her hand as she made
“Are you crying?” he asked got no answer.
Getting fed up of the whole situation.
“Okay, why did you leave Ikolaba without telling
me?” he asked.
“Ask your cousin.” she replied.
“Omolayo! What did she do to you?” he asked as he
made her to seat down.
“You need to see how she blasted me. Saying i am a
Sl*t who gets involved with cultist and then decided
to put an innocent guy like you into trouble by
forcing myself on you.” she explained.
“Am very sorry about that.” he apologised.
“It’s okay.” she said.
“Let’s get back to the hall, so we can settle down
before the paper commences.” he advised.
“Okay.” she said as she stood up and followed him.
“Can yo do this paper on your own?” he asked.
“Yes. I’ll try.” she replied.
“Are you sure?” he asked.
“Yes.” she replied.
“And am very sorry for all i put you through today.”
“Oh! It’s nothing.” he assured her.
They both entered the examination hall five minutes
after the commencement of the paper.
“Where are you two coming from?” the invigillator
“Sir, we don’t know the paper had already started.”
“You are silly. Don’t you know the break is over?”
The man asked.
“Sir, its not yet 2.30pm. Which means the paper is
not yet supposed to start.” He defended.
“Look at this boy. Bastard son of a thousand
fathers.” the man said.
“Point of corrections sir. I am not a bastard and you
have no right to call me one.” he replied rudely.
In a blink of an eye the invigillator had slapped him.
He wanted to retaliate but Nike held him back.
“Segun don’t try it.” she warned.
“I am old enough to be your father. So don’t dare try
rubbish with me.” the man warned.
“You can never be my father.” segun said angrily.
“please sir, we are very sorry for coming back late.
We thought the paper will start by 2.30. Nike
explained kneeling down.
“God bless you my daughter. I’ll allow you to write
the paper for your sake.” he said as he gave them
the objective question paper and the OMR sheet.
“Thank you sir.” Nike said.
Segun walked to his seat angrily and left Nike with
the old man.
Nike begged on segun’s for sometime before the
invigillator told her to go.
