Primary 1

I remember my first year in Primary school vividly, the year 28th September 2000 , I had celebrated my birthday a few days ago, So I had a piece of cake, a fruit juice and some biscuits in my lunch box ( It was pink and green, with a water bottle to match) , My school bag containing a few notebooks was a Blue Jean bag with brown leather straps ( A gift from my godfather) .
I remember my Dad taking me to my class,Primary 1B and put my lunch box in the first seat on the third row.
I was so excited, Finally I have left Kindergarten, No more Yellow and Green uniform, In primary school our uniform was a blue check shirt with a navy blue Pinafore and after months of dreaming, I finally get to wear one.
My Dad left me and I went to the assembly ground, when assembly was over, I went to Primary One block and I couldn't remember my class anymore, I searched and searched but I just couldn't find it, I kept seeing faces and recognising no one, After searching for about thirty minutes, there was not a pupil on the corridor except me, confused still searching for my class , I went to my former class Kg 3B and I realised it wouldn't help so I went back to the primary school block and I sat by a class and started crying, A girl from Primary 2A came out and asked me what was wrong, I told her I misplaced my class and my Daddy will shout at me.
She asked me what class it was and I told her Primary 1B, She pointed it out and it was just right in front of me, I still wonder how I passed the class and didn't know it was mine.
The teacher wasn't furious with me for coming late thank God, the seat I initially reserved for myself wasn't available again, so I sat in another seat, when it was break time, I found my lunch box, ate and I went to play.
In primary one, I learnt so many things, One I remember vividly was learning how to pick Grasshoppers, My friends and I would go to a field close to our School hall and pick Grasshoppers all afternoon, breaking off their wings and putting them in containers. We called them "Bijot", We had police Bijots ( it was yellow and black) , Devil Bijot (green with red eyes), Razor ( green and it makes a really sharp noise when it flies), We barely caught razor, because It could cut our hands ( that's why we call it Razor) , Only really experienced kids caught Razor, I remember catching my first Razor, you would think I caught a lion.
I remember Gift stabbing Collins in the eye with her Pencil, thank God it injured only his eye lids, I remember the day our fine art Teacher Mrs Akpori died, I barely knew her but cried because everyone was crying, I remember the whole school dragging Godswill (The dude that knocked down my tooth) and one girl I think Labake was her name, Olo told me they were caught doing "sweetie" under the table during break ( LOL)
I vividly remember wearing the back of my uniform to school and when someone told me, I opened my Pinafore and took of my shirt to the shock of my classmates wore it back and sat down on my seat, I remember Ehi Odion laughing like I was doing a striptease.
I remember forgetting my lunch box at home and I slipped past school security and I started trekking back home to get it, thank God a teacher found me in time. I was brought back crying hard that I would be really hungry and I remember Eduana consoling me( LOL, I was such a baby)
Philip, Olo, Eric, Isabu, Osaretin, the Blessings, the Joys, Edeghogho, Oghosa, Ab, Ibhade, Ehi Odion, Peace, Eduana were the first friends I had in Primary One, with them Primary school was fun.
We are adults now but the memory lingers on
The times we spent picking Bijots, climbing the cashew tree beside our class, playing games and shaking our little botties to some songs we just learnt how to sing some how, When it was time to move to Primary 2, things changed slightly, picking Bijots became childish but that's another story , Can you remember your first year in Primary school, Do you have any beautiful story to share, Send your story to,

Eddy after talking to Ese walked into an IT centre located in the shopping complex and the sound of laughter welcomed him, along with cries of he did it, he really did it. Eddy walks to a tall light skinned  guy and says,
" Oya Iro, I have done what you asked now give me my laptop"
Iro, a very naughty soul, looks at him and says
" yea, you talked to her, So what's her name, where does she work and did you get her number"
" Her name is Ese, the rest I dunno"
The other guys in the room burst out laughing and they started taunting Eddy saying stuffs like 'jew', 'nerd' and stuffs like that.
Iro smiled and said
"The deal was name, where she works and number "
" Guy stop this rubbish and give me my laptop, am almost done writing the codes for that Green's hospital website"
" Eddy at least tell me, you found the babe attractive "
" Iro She is okay"
The cries of Jesus, Hey, Choi, filled the room
" I don dey talk say this Eddy nah serious gay" said Emma the IT centre accountant
" Guy stop that rubbish talk am not gay"
" Only a Gay niggi will see that girl and say that she is okay" said Etim
"That girl is fucking hot" said Iro
" Then why didn't you guys talk to her, why make me go and talk to her "
" we thought it would be funny to watch you fumble over your words or pee your trousers as you talk to her " said Ben
" You guys are jobless, give me my laptop Iro "
" Abeg Iro give am oh, Before he uses his Kung fu skills on you " said Emma
Everyone laughed except Eddy, He was seriously tired of being the subject of the jokes in the IT centre, but he loved working here, He loved his boss and most of all he loved his Job, Yes he was Antisocial and He wasn't really interested in girls, But So what,he loved his life this way, He had a goal in life and that goal was that He wanted to be in The Programmers hall of fame( If there was something like that) A social life and a Girlfriend will only slow him down.
He thought Ese was beautiful but He felt she was just one of those " Fake Plastic Painted up Barbie doll" His dream girl was a girl that was into programming the way he was into it, So they can challenge each other and write codes together, He would only have a girlfriend If he found such a girl or If he ever finds such a girl.
He collected his laptop from Iro finally and settled down in his work area to finish with the Green's Hospital Website. He left work by 8 pm and made his way home, What a day he thought, He started thinking about tomorrow and how he would write the codes and design the next website He would work on tomorrow , He was so deep in thoughts he didn't hear the car horn.

Beauty and the Programmer

Saying Ese was beautiful is an understatement, Ese was Wow just wow, Almost everything about her was perfect, She was dark chocolate in complexion, white almond shaped eyes with long lashes, pearly white neatly arranged teeth covered with luscious lips, She was about 5 ft 6 inches tall, with a well sculpted body that fit anything she wore.
Ese wasn't just a head turner, she could break necks if possible. She was any man's dream, she was beautiful on the inside too, She was funny, easy going and respectful.
After her Nysc, She got a job as a Nurse in a private hospital. She was literally chased by men from different corners, rich men, handsome men but she refused to date anyone , she said she didn't want them because they felt their physique and money could buy her, she wanted more in a man.

One day, she went to a supermarket to buy a gift for her friend getting married, when she was leaving she heard a shaking voice begging her to wait, she turned to see a man walking towards her, When he came close to her, she assessed him from head to toe. He was roughly the same height with her or a bit shorter it was hard to tell because he was sloughing a bit, He wore a neat and well ironed short sleeve shirt on a pair of Jeans that looked a bit worn out but still wearable, on his feet were Allstar Canvas, He wore geek glasses and was visibly shaking.
" Hhhhiiiii, sorry Good morning, No its actually 1pm already so am am "
Ese was staring at him
" okay I meant Good Afternoon "
" Good afternoon can I help you ?" said Ese
" I just wanted to say Hi "
" Okay you have said it, Now I have to go "
" Hi, am Eddy, please can I know yours? "
" It's Ese "
" Okay, Nice to meet you Ese, I have to go now, you have a lovely name "
And he turned back and left, That was really odd, He didn't ask for her number or where she worked or anything, Just her name and he left, funny dude,
