I had finished packing so i lay on my bed watching a movie online through my phone.. when I heard my mum’s voice.
mum:baby are you ready(she yelled from the living room)
Justin: wait a minute, did my mum just called me baby?.
my door opened as my mum stood on the doorway.
Justin: hi mum.
Mum: did you drop your tray outside the door?
Justin: uhh yeah..is there a problem with that (still laying on the bed)
mum: why didn’t you take it to the kitchen instead
Justin: no I can’t go to where people keep staring at me.
Mum: you know you can’t hide your face forever, one day you will finally take off your mask and make friends.(as she sat down beside me)
Justin:but why do they keep staring at me?
mum: number one they are curious why you’re wearing a mask,and number two you look like an angel.
(I looked at for a second and bursted into laughter)
Justin: then where are my wings?
Mum: you are an angel without wings,can’t you see yourselves in the mirror? you’re magnificent.
I couldn’t stop smiling.
Mum: get up let go(as she stood up and the walked out of the door)
i quickly got up and picked up my bag and wore my green sneakers before i walked out of the door..
my mum joined me in the living room pulling her bag along with her.
Mum: are we good?
Justin:yeah let go (as we walked out of the door)
we walked out of the gate and saw halita’s mum waiting for us in her car.
she pressed a button in her car and her booth slowly opened as we dropped our bag.
Diana later finished downloading her movie before she transfered it into her phone from the laptop.
Diana: I have to start going now, I haven’t finished my physics assignment.
Halita:is now you realized you haven’t done your assignment, after you have downloaded your stupid movie.
Diana: okay I know you’re still angry because I didn’t follow you to see that angel you’re talking about,alright take me to him lemme see if I will melt.
halita: noo goan watch your movie nah,am not taking you to him anymore(hissed) (as I lay on the bed).
Diana: okay am sorry,pls take me to him.
Halita: no,don’t you have assignment? bye bye(as I pretended to pressing my phone)
Diana: you too now want to do your own shakara abi,isoright (as she put on her slippers and walk towards the door.
Halita: wait jor ode(I yelled)
Diana: mumu I thought you will continue doing shakara,stand up let go jare(with her hand on her waist)
i rolled out of bed and followed her out of the door.
we we’re walking downstairs when we saw sewa walking up with her Tab..

Sewa:why are you looking at me like this nah?
