“It’s going to take you nothing less than two weeks to complete your registration process”. Precious explained.
Precious was the student Opeyemi had to go stay with until she secured her own apartment. Precious' family and Opeyemi's family had been friends for a while now and Precious had gained admission into the university two years earlier. She is about four years older than Opeyemi and she is what you’d define as a shining black beauty. Her skin always glowed like the morning sunshine and what makes her beauty unique is the brownish Iris she has in her eyes. It made her look like she was a black American.
Precious wasn’t the type of person Opeyemi would want to emulate. She was the type of person who would preach one thing and do another. With some people she would act like a saint and she would dine like the devil with some others. For instance, Opeyemi had once caught Precious hiding some condoms in one of her bags. Meanwhile, she was the one advising Opeyemi to abstain from any form of sexual activity in the university.
“What? Why would an ordinary registration process take me so long?” Opeyemi retorted in amusement. She didn’t expect that the process would take that long. “Wetin them dey register gan?” She thought.
After three weeks, with the help of Precious, Opeyemi was able to secure an apartment for herself. She had joined hands with another fresher Precious had linked her up with to pay the rent together. Although, she was having doubts about accepting a total stranger as her roommate, she had to accept it that way because it was her only option. Moreover, Precious assured her that she would like the girl because she knew the girl to be a good girl.
Before the three weeks Opeyemi spent with Precious was over, she was already aspiring to leave the house. She was tired of the “I see you finish” facade of Precious' behavior. She seriously needed some space away from Precious.
Now back in her room, eyes still closed in meditation. She still couldn’t fathom what went wrong because at that point, what she has turned to now still nauseated her. She knew she had to think deeper to get a befitting answer so she continued meditating.
Dear reader, Opeyemi is still lost. She is still confused. Is this how it really happens to those people who rapidly change in the university? What are your thoughts? Please drop a comment to communicate them.
Before you go kindly like and share. Next week, we'd pick up from where we stopped this week. Where would you rather be?
