“good evening am sorry for disturbing you girls, my name is Ozila and am here for the exam but please am looking for where to sleep” I said
“Oh you are here for exam right? “ one of the girl ask.
“Yes, I just arrive now and they won’t allow me sleep inside church or anywhere” I said.
“Why not go to the hospital ward, if you can manage there they won’t disturb u there” the second girl said.
“Okay, can you direct me to the ward?” I pleaded.
“Mina is going there so just follow her there” the second girl replied again, she was referring to the quiet tall girl.
“Okay, thank you very much” I said and started following them from behind, they walk together to school field before they separated to their different location, I keep following Mina to the ward, we walk for 2 minutes before we got there, she’s the quiet type because she hasn’t uttered any word since, we enter the hospital and then she pointed to one door, I understand and then left her and to the door, I thank her and then when I open the ward door I saw so many people, all the chairs and filled up, I just can’t stay here I said to myself but I don’t have another choice, I have to manage it till tomorrow, so many people and there are even some students too like me who are here for exams, I came out from the ward and there in the verandah I saw one big chair with two guys sitting, I join them there holding my bag, they were discussing about the exam and cursing the school because they only need 120 people from all the 12,000 that registered, that didnt discourage me so far am here I must make it, I said to myself.
After some time almost ten o clock the guys left leaving only me in the chair, I was feeling sleepy so I relax in the chair, people are moving up and down, around eleven I was fast asleep, I heard someone called my name but I thought its a dream so I keep on sleeping until the person touch my leg, I quickly got up.
“You can’t sleep here, security will throw you out” Mina said.
“Mina, am sorry that ward is filled up I can’t sleep there” I said.
“Then go look for somewhere else, this is a reception if they catch you here you will pay fine” she said.
“Okay” I said and took my bag.
I started walking out of the hospital.
“Where are you going?” Mina ask following me from behind.
“Don’t worry, am going to look for where to sleep, thanks for your time” I said and walk away.
She kept on following me, I got to the school gate and walk out to the street, she stop and then turn back.
Outside the school gate I saw a place where they sell things but they have close, I walk inside the shop and turn the chair, I cleaned it and relax on the chair, its a place where they sell cooked rice, but the place is secluded nobody can see me here so I thought.
