“Well you focus on your school while I look for work to sustain us, I can even be of more help to you, I can support since I will be working, its abuja so there are many vacancy there for sure” Michele said with seriousness on her face.
“Hmmm, I don’t think I want that for now, let me go first and observe how things are going, after I settle down I will call you to come join me, I have not even gotten the admission yet, and am yet to write the exam, so let me balance okay”.
“Hmm alright but I will be living here for the time being” she said.
“if that’s what you want no problem, I will leave next week to abuja for the exam” I said.
“Okay, no problem, so for now what do you have for our stomach?” She ask and walk to the pot,.
“I have not cook anything oh”
“So what do we eat then?” She ask.
“We will eat indomie later” I said.
We keep living together peacefully, I can sense she’s really missing our daughter I even told her to go and make peace with her mum, she refused and told me to stop disturbing her about her mum, I used the small money I have with me for feeding, and I keep on reading for the exam.
Fast forward to next week, I gathered my things and journeyed to Abuja, I left around 5 in the morning and got to Abuja around 6 in the evening, it was rough journey especially the bad road from kogi to Abuja, I got to gwagwalada and called my sister living in maraba area.
She said that if I want to sleep around school or enter taxi going to maraba so that she will come pick me up, I asked her how much from gwagwalada to maraba and she said #500, and that means if am coming back I will still pay #500, I decided to enter keke going to School of health, I will look for a place to sleep around school and then after the exam the next morning I will go to my sisters place to relax,
She told me to enter bike going to school of health Abuja, so I took a bike there, before I got there its already late and its getting dark already.
I got to the school and then came down from the keke, I enter the big school and started asking for nursing department, there’s a mosque at the left side of the gate and a church at the right side of the gate, I first of all enter the church to ask if they will let me sleep in the church.
“Good evening sir” I said as I open the small gate guarding the church, I greeted the man I saw in front of the church.
“Good evening, what can we do for you?” He ask, the expression on his face has said it all already, like someone not willing to help.
“Yes, am just coming from a far journey, Edo precisely and I was wondering if I can sleep here today since its late”
“Okay you are here for the exam?” He ask.
“Yes, am here to write the exam for entry into school of nursing”.
“Okay, but am sorry we don’t allow people sleep inside church, we used to allow it before but we got directives to stop, so you will go to hostel and sleep” he said.
“Oh okay, can you point me to the nursing department?” I ask.
“Yes, just go straight and then turn left and walk straight till you reach the last gate” he said.
“Alright thanks then” I said and walk off.
So after registering with #5000 they still want us to spend our little change in their hostel, oh well I don’t have that kind of money so I will find a way to and a place to pass this night, na only one night so nothing spoil.
I keel on walking on the tarted road till I got to the last gate where nursing department is, I ask the gate man he told me same that can’t find a place for me that I should book a room, I was angry so I just keel on walking around tbe school, I saw so many of my mates looking for where to sleep, I was angry so I decided to leave the school and sleep outside gate since they won’t allow me sleep in the school compound, as I was walking to the school big gate, I saw three girls on nursing uniform coming inside the school, they passed me but I turn back and run back to them.
“Good evening ladies” they stopped to look who is greeting them.
“Good evening” they replied.
(They direct me to school compound where I wanted to sleep until one of them saw me outside and took me in)
