(CONTINUED FROM THE LAST EPISODE)
“As I was saying, so I guess she is the most
brilliant student in this class, so respect her and
emulate her… You (pointing to Daniel) stand up
from there and sit with those girls (pointing to
the two girls sitting behind me). Princess join
those two at the front sit (pointing to me and
Cynthia)… you can ask her anything you don’t
know concerning your primary assignment in this
school (wholly directing her statement to me and
Cynthia but partly the whole class)… see you
later and face your study.” Mrs. Frank elucidated,
commanded and concluded.
“Hi.” Princess greeted.
“Hi!” Cynthia and I responded to her greeted in
unison. Cynthia adjusts herself and Princess was
able to sit by the wall. I was sitting in between
the two damsels feeling uncomfortable and
“Please, can you lend me your Biology note?”
She requested directing her question to me.
“Sure.” I replied and I brought out the note from
my polythene bag, she collected the note
showing some kind of irritating face.
“Thank you.” She appreciated with a frown face.
“Ola, weldone o, make una dey enjoy yourself.”
Daniel uttered from behind jokingly. I turned to
him but mistakenly, my elbow hit Princess on her
jaw. She stood up in anger and fury; she was
really rage and frenzy.
“What nonsense?” She blasted already on her
feet. Her alarming voice drew the attentions of
other students; they were shocked and stunned
by the newcomer awful reaction. I was also
shocked and dazed by her reaction.
“Please I am sorry.” I uttered beseechingly.
“Ola… this is Cynthia part two o.” Daniel said
“It isn’t your fault na.” I replied unhappily.
“Ola, won’t you teach me that Chemistry topic
Acid, base and what again…?” Cynthia questioned
“It seems the teaching staffs are having a
seminar today… we are free, so let do the work
together.” I replied returning her smile. Cynthia
brought out her jotter and her essential
chemistry textbook. I collected the textbook and
looked at the contents for the topic, I fished out
the topic and I begin with the explanation.
Princess was busy jotting down from my note;
she was really engrossed with her writing. She
has the best handwriting have even seen.
Shortly, she closed the book and handed over it
to me without uttering a word. She brought out
her Biology textbook opened it to a page
displaying the skeletal system of a human being.
“Ola…” Cynthia called back when she sense I was
totally carried away.
“Hmmm… oh, I’m sorry…” I staggered
“So please continue, this is interesting.” Cynthia
commented as I continued.
“Although, there are different definitions of acids
and bases. These definitions doesn’t disagree
with one another, they differ in their
comprehensiveness. Apart from the already
established definitions of acids, bases and salts,
Antoine Lavoiser, Humphry Davy and Justus
Liebig as well discovered few things about acids
and bases, but they didn’t make their definitions
In 1884, Svante Arrhenius defined acid as any
substances, which when dissolved or liquefy in
water it produced hydrogen ion H+ as the only
positive ions.” I paused looking at Cynthia who
was already engrossed with my explanation off
“That is my friend, the young scholar…” Daniel
hailed from behind.
“So you are listening?” I asked surprisingly.
“Why I no go listen to my professor.” Daniel
alarming statement made Princess break-free
from her Biology textbook, she looked at
Cynthia’s jotter and she could see so equations I
have jotted on the jotter.
“Sha continue jare, I dey your back… Cynthia una
weldone o.” Daniel commented happily.
“Daniel, I don’t what your trouble this morning o,
since denied and even embarrassed me in the
bus so…” Cynthia gave excuses but unfinished.
“Can’t you keep quiet or talk with composure?”
Princes blasted loudly.
“Ehe! Abino, don’t interfere o, your attention is
not needed here.” Daniel returned loudly.
“I don’t blame you… you fool!” Cynthia returned
“Please stop the argument… this is not why we
are here.” I cautioned and Princess threw an
irritated and aggravated looks at me.
“Poor rat!” She commented directing her
statement to me. I looked at her and shook my
head in pity.
I explained the untaught topic to Cynthia and
Daniel brilliantly. I even branched at some other
topics in the subject in which I guess they really
enjoy my undeniable lecture. They clapped their
hands for me after I ended topic.
“I love this topic… so interesting and
understanding.” Daniel expressed happily.
“Please, can we be doing this kind of tutorial
when we are less busy?” Daniel pleaded smiling.
“Sure, I would also love that.” I replied
“Thank you so much Ola… I love you.” Cynthia
said smiling and sincerely.
“Love?” Daniel, Princess and I exclaimed in
