(CONTINUED FROM THE LAST EPISODE)
“Expel my foot…” A voice uttered loudly and the
principal opened his mouth in agape.
“Who’s that idiot?” Mr. Chorus barked loudly but
not even a word could be heard from anyone.
“Are you deaf? I said who made such utterance?”
Mr. Chorus barked angrily but we all adamant to
“All of you get on your knees.” Mr. Chorus
paused and we obey his command.
“Where’s Mr. Anume?” Mr. Chorus barked at a
female English teacher who was standing behind
“I don’t know his whereabout, but he left the
assembly shortly.” The female English teacher
replied looking non-challant.
“Since you can’t fetch out the person that made
the rude utterance, all of you will be punished.”
Mr. Chorus threatened but all the kneeling
students exclaimed and we remain adamant to
keep be mute.
“You, go and get your bag and leave the school.
You’re expelled!” Mr. Chorus concluded directing
his statement to Daniel. Daniel got on his feet
and looked at Mr. Chorus unhappily.
“What’re you still waiting for?” Mr. Chorus yelled
at Daniel but unfinished.
“I will leave your school, but I just want you to
know that your son doom is near and his future
is dim…” Daniel reported whispering but
unfinished as Mr. Chorus landed a thunderous
slap on his cheek.
“You can only exorcise and expel me from this
school, but that doesn’t tamper with my future
because it is clearly bright and brilliant unlike
your dimed future son.” Daniel paused with
sorrowful impression glowing on his face.
“What audacity do you have…?” Mr. Chorus
barked but unfinished.
“Oh no… but this won’t stop me from doing the
right thing, it won’t stop me from living the life I
love, it won’t stop me from doing what is right, it
won’t stop me from rebelling against injustice.”
Daniel whispered standing before Mr. Chorus
“What nonsense, am I not old enough to be your
father?” He paused
“Surely, you’re old enough to be my father, but
my father doesn’t behave as silly as you do.”
Daniel replied courageously and Daniel walked
away from the assembly ground..
“And you are standing there looking like fools.
Idiots (directing his statements to the teachers
and prefects) what are you standing for? Won’t
you get him?” He barked loudly and stridently.
“Daniel! Daniel!!” I called as I run after Daniel
who was walking towards the classroom.
“Ola, don’t worry, I am alright.” Daniel replied
with swollen eyes.
“Daniel, please don’t go.” I pleaded with tears
dropping from my eyes.
“Daniel!” Princess called loudly but dumbstruck.
“Princess!” Daniel also called without uttering
“Daniel!” Cynthia also called from behind.
“No you can’t expel him from school.” Behold a
protest have started on the assembly ground.
“Shut your mouths, prefects, where are you?” Mr.
Chorus barked but the prefects were nowhere to
“Daniel, don’t worry everything will be alright…
you won’t be expel from this school, my father
will do something about it.” Princess assured
with a sorrowful face.
“Your father? How can he be of help? Beside
how does this concern him?” Cynthia asked
“My father is the P.T.A chairman of this
school…” Princess paused.
“And he is the C.E.O of Goldnet Groups of
Company.” Princess concluded smiling.
“Goldnet Groups of Company?” Cynthia and I
“Yes, so Daniel, you got nothing to worry about.”
Princess concluded smiling.
“Goldnet Groups of Company, isn’t that the
biggest firm in this state?” I asked doubtfully.
“Yes, it is…” Princess replied but unfinished.
“Jesus…” Daniel exclaimed surprisingly. The
protest was becoming mad. The students were
breaking the windscreens of the teacher’s cars
with woods and irons. Car’s tyres went flats as if
that was not enough the protesting students
started throwing stones at the teachers. The
teachers including the principals don’t know
what to do again, they were really confused and
befuddled, and they had no option than to run for
their dear life and beg their offices for hideouts
“What’re we going to do now?” Mr. Chorus asked
directing his statement to the Vice Principal of
“I am equally confused… and I told you to do
something about this Leo of a boy, you see what
he has caused?” Mrs. Benita; the V.P admin
voiced out softly.
“What can I do? He is my son and my only son
for that matter.” Mr. Chorus replied sweating.
“You ought to have relocated him to abroad.”
Mrs. Benita answered.
“I tried my best to convince him to go and finish
his education abroad but he refused bluntly.” Mr.
“But you know he is wrong on this matter, why
don’t you judge fairly?” Mrs. Benita asked
“Oh no, have you forgotten his conditions?” Mr.
Chorus asked bemused.
“Oh, that’s true and I know that is the reason
why he is misbehaving. Haven’t he caught us
having something together, I am sure today
Wednesday won’t have be a land of commotion
all because of that idiot.” Mrs. Benita uttered
“Hmmm…” Mr. Chorus sighted.
