The activities were on…students tottering all-over
the place,some are relaxing under shades,while
were in hurry to into d available theatres.
his friends(Chisom and Chuks) were relaxing
close to a kiosk;discussing every-
They were about discussing one of Emeka’s
numerous girlfriends when Chisom
said”guys,these new girls,i mean the new
intakes,they make sense o” “I think say na only

laughter, “I sure say Emeka is making
to have more gals on his list” chuks added
nudging Emeka,who winked and said”trust your
guy na” they
were about to start another round of laughter
Chisom quickly made signs,they understood and
Betty walked briskly to the kiosk”good afternoon

“wow..she over make sense o”Chisom exclaimed
while the other gaped. “Emeka make sure you add
her to your list o”Chuks said loudly,not minding
she is within hearing distance.
Emeka stood up and walked across to her while
friends cheered. “hi beautiful” he said just as
was about to walk away…she turned
slightly,summed him up in a look dat could make
freeze”errm…are u a new student? I mean ur face-
I mean…we’ve nt met b4″ Emeka said slowly. “do
i look like one of them, do i have their
traits?”Betty snapped”i beg your pardon”he replied
looking confused. “do i look like those gals u av

their looks” Betty queried
“errm i’m sorry…I..”He started
“mtchew”Betty hissed and walked away
Emeka sighed,disappointed,walked back to his
friends who were already doubling with
laughter…”Emmy-boy,don’t worry-ndo,thats how
these JJC gals dey form,no mind dat gal…plenty

shrugged it off,placed his head on a knotted fist-
licking his wound.
“Emeka won’t you come along? The party is

adjusted his collar “hmmn..”Emeka grunted”Guy

“you guys can go, i’ll be fine”Emeka replied with a
note of finality.
He watched them leave in his car,while he sunk
bed trying to wave Betty off his mind. Betty was
hurrying up d staircase dat led to the 1st
floor of d faculty of science building,she was
so fast that she didn’t notice Emeka coming down
stairs,and boosh! She banged into him;scattering
books all over the place
“aaww…erm..i’m sorry..i..erm” she stammered
nervously trying to pick-up the books.while Emeka
stared down at her-too suprised to speak.
“I’m very sorry,i didn’t notice..i…i am…i’m truly
Betty said finally,presenting the books to him
looking up. “errm..never mind..its ok”Emeka said
books,unconciously brushing her fingers.
“i’m truly sorry”Betty said again,pulliing her
from his grip.
“its alright dearie…anyway,I’m Emeka Jonas”he
wearing his disarming smile “I’m Betty Amah” she
replied shaking his hand.
