Maria sat on the bed when she came
out from the shower, took a can of
cream from the wardrobe and applied it
slowly on her skin.
‘so what did you say happened again?’
Maria asked Abby who was seating on
the chair opposite the mirror.
‘i said Chuks was involved in an
accident’ Abby said.

was already out of her mouth. The look
Abby gave her alone sef, she regreted

‘sorry’ she said ‘i meant to say what
happened’ she said.
‘Susan just called. She said we chould
come to her house so we could go and

might be there and if she goes alone,
what will she say she is to him but if we
all go together, we could say we are
classmates which we are’ Abby said.
‘na wa oo. End time is near oo’
‘which one be end time is near oo? Did
