I exclaimed leaving my mouth open ajar as i stare at the most beautiful girl i have ever seen since i was born averting from a pink lamboghini.yes,a lamboghini,i knew it was a lamboghini cos it was boldly witten on it.surely i was not the only person captivated by the scene cos all the securities,the parents and the gateman where staring at her like a movie as she walk majestically toward the gate with an unfriendly expression.i stood bare footed at the spot and my books were folded on my chest with my hands as i stare at the whole vicinity and it all smell riches all over. i took a quick glance at the lamboghini once again by then it was already exiting the vicinity and a young guy whom i pressumed to be the angry bird driver.i thought of giving up the scholarship cos it was fully obvious that this school is not for people like me,i was still deep into my thought when i was brought back to reality by the voice of the gateman.
“you have been standing at that spot for close to 15 minute, are you gonna stay there for the whole day?”he asked and i quietly enter the gate with my books still folded in my chest.
immediately i enter the premises,the bell for the assembly was rung and student started assembling at the front of the magnificent building which serve as the assembly ground for the student.without wasting much time i head toward the assembly ground and i stopped abrutedly not knowing which of the line to join.
“what are you doing in this school?”
one of the male staff motioned to me from the front heading to the back to meet me,embarrassing the leavung daylight iut of me with his question as student started laughing so hard in the assembly ground by mere looking at me.i thought i will be able to handle the embarrassment,i thought i will be able to stay and act oblivion to their words and action but right at that spot,my strength failed me and i can feel musture tears gathering in my eyes which i was trying so hard to control from falling down.i dont blame them either who will see a bare fototed boy in a whole prestigioust kings academy and will not laugh hard..
“who is that?”
a pot belle man that was heading toward the line from a beautiful office at the extreme of the school which i presume is his office came toward me as the whole line went uproar and the teacher with the man whom i later discover was the principal of the school came to me while i stare at them like a dundy not knowing what to say.
“are you a dummy,”,
he asked and i quickly shake my head negatively then i dipped my hand into my pocket handing my own copy of the award to him and a bright smile escape is jaw.he took me by the hand toward the assembly ground and stood me at the front of the whole student and teachers present.i felt the ground should just open and swallow me as i saw thousands of eyes staring at me.
“good morning students”.he greeted the students.
“good morning sir”.they replied and total silence return to the assembly ground as they were all eager to know what they t principal had to say.
“standing close to me here is a super ex student of brilliant comprehensive high school he conquer the whole school and awarded with a scholarship to study with us here”he said and murmuring words could be heard from every line as they all stare at me in awe.
“his name is wisdom wealth and i urge you all to emulate him,buckle your educational belt and dont allow the super boy to conquer this school too”he added and laughter could be heard from every from every corner of the assembly ground and for the first time since i left home that morning, i also smile too.
A male student shouted from the back and the principal smiled.
“we shall see about that”
he retorted and ask me to join one of the line at the extreme which i did.
Goose pimples appear on my face when i looked opposite where i stood in the female line and i saw the angry bird standing at the line still with an unfriendly expression and i tried my best not to stare at her which i failed countless times as laughter,mumuring words and side talk were overing all over the lines which seem not to be oblivious to her making me to wonder if she is really a human or a spirit without a heart, feelings and conscience.
