STORY: THE FAILED SYSTEM, EPISODE 2

Flashback…

It was a weekday Joshua a 300level student of the department of Commercial Law just came out of a lecture theatre after defending one presentation at a seminar. Walking out elegantly with a black pair of trousers and a white long sleeve well suited with a black blazer, he walked down the Walk way with a document in hand. The 22years boy from the South south with a height of about 5ft2″ and a fairly dark skin and well built physique continued on his part till he got a call from a girl running from the back. Chioma a light skinned girl walked down to Joshua where he was standing. “So you couldn’t wait for me right?” She asked. “Not really like that”. Joshua replied. “The stuff is I spent the whole night preparing for ttomoro presentation so I just have to go and get some sleep” Joshua concluded. “Well no problem, after atave being snubbing me lately”. Sheclimaxed her dialogue and slowed her pace while Joshua stopped and turned to look at her soul through her eyes. “Chioma don’t start this I beg of you”. Walking closer to her and holding her two hands to the front, “I mean no hurt but lately things have been so choky that I don’t even have time for myself”. He paused and took a breath. “But I promise I will  make it up to you”. He concluded. Chioma was still standing and looking unpleased. “Oya smile for me na”. Joshua intoned in Pidgin English while wearing a reassuring smile. Chioma reluctantly did as she offered Joshua a hug. They both continued down the walkway smiling and leaning on each other like fresh lovers that just got marriage approval from their parents.
