We started living like someone who lives in an uncompleted building without roof. I started to help my mum in the farm work in order to make both ends meet,i applied more efforts and broughtout the best in me to do the farm work and also use it to console my mum so that she will not die too. Soon our wassce result was out and glory be to God,i credited all my subjects,i called Mrs sharp sharp to inform her about my result and also thanked her because she was my backbone all through the exam,princess also scratched her own result and she also credited her own subjects. One day,my mother summoned me in the parlour.*** Me: mum,this one you summoned me,i hope all is well?
