Nneka was also there and so was
‘what exactly happened?’ Tony asked.
The girls were frightened and refused
to speak up.
‘you girls should talk or have tyou
turned deaf?’ Nneka asked angrily.
‘okay, i will talk,’ Susan said still
‘we were chatting in Maria’s room when
all of a sudden, we had a sudden
