A Story written by Miraxzeebility…
“why did you opt for ibo language instead of further mathematics i instructed you to register”
i was speechless and don’t know what to think. Lots of thought encroach my mind.
I vividly remembered the day the senior boarding house master sent for me, i had a call from my dad, as a science student he gave me the subjects to register, Further Mathematics included.
I wasn’t a real genius in Mathematics and i had fears. So i choosed to replace F.M with ibo language.( i am good in the theoretical aspect of ibo language though i can’t speak fluently).
“daddy, i forgot to tell u i made a mistake when registering,it was already late when i found out” i lied,trying to save myself.
He scolded me and was telling my mum how she trained a son that can’t obey his father’s wise counsel. My mum did her best to calm him down.
“you have a good result”, he finally said as he handed an envelope to my mum. With joy i ran to and fro the parlor exhibiting my gymnastics skills not even bothering to check out my grades. My mum read out the grade, i had 4 distinctions in Mathematics, physics, geography,and Economics. While the remaining 5 subjects were credit. She danced as she praised me,
“follow the ways of your seniors”, she said with a stern face advising my kid brothers.
“wait for my own result”, Ayo said as he followed my dad upstairs. I later called some of my pals to share the good tidings. Ifeanyi and Deji both had D7 in mathematics and English respectively. Rita made her papers, while Angela had an outstanding in Mathematics.
The corresponding days went smoothly as i was in a joyful mood. I greeted anyone i see even if am way older than he/she.
