Episode 1.


Since I came back from Uyo to my hometown, Ibusa. My day routine has been regular, apart from some activities that do changes due to nature taking its course.


I always wake up by Five am, everyday, even when I am in school.


But the only difference is that, I go for lectures and at home, I don't.


After waking up from the bed, I say a short prayer, open our entrance door, move the outhouse to ease my system.  After which, I brush my teeth, enter the house, dress up, inform my parents that I am going for Morning Mass and then zoom off.


The only difference between home and school is that, I take my bath at school before going for Morning Mass and at home, I do not.


Since they stole my phone in the Church, I have stopped carrying it, but whenever I visit any other place apart from the Church, I take it along.


Church has taught me a lesson, despite all my prayers, my phone didn't come back, but after about three weeks, God blessed me with a new phone.


Did I say a new phone?

Oh...! yes, I did.

It was a miracle, because it wasn't only a new phone, but a phone higher than my former one.


Despite all the threat, the Parish priest and his assistants did, no phone came out.


Nevertheless, on some occasions, I do take my phone to the Church. 


Aha...! Did I say, I take my phone to Church.

Yes, I did.

Oh...! What a stubborn Child I am?


Still, whenever I did that, I am always conscious with it. And I don't take it to Morning Masses.


The main reason, I came back home were for two reasons,


One, no money at hand.

Two, ASUU strike.


You see, this has been my bone of contention. Even as at that, I still give God the glory.


The difference between home and school is the cooking.


it is not as if, I don't cook in school. 

I do, but the only difference is that on some occasions, I cook up to two meals, because my Mother is on special diet.


At night, when my day do start, I spend it in the shop with my Mum, after which I do some reading and  most at times, I see some movies, even if, I am not the movie type.


Yes, you might be surprised to read that, but the person that changed me, was a friend, I renamed my Favourite.


Oh yes...! My Favourite, and you might be thinking that, she is a girl.

Yes, she is.

Indeed, she is an angel in human clothing.


And still, we give glory to God.
