Mrs.Peters’,popularly known as Mummy Racheal,
mouth was opened and some flies could not help
but try to see the colour of her last food still lying
on her tongue.
Her mouth was not opened in surprise as it is the
case with most people whose mouth were opened. A
noise came from it as if it was living:She was
This time her head was not nodding-you know that
state when you are trying to fight the sleep:dozing.
She was what comedians would call a traveller who
had gone far and she could have reached her village
She is a short, fair woman whose job is to take care
of the Babies in the daycare unit of Greater
tomorrow Nursery,Primary,And Secondary school
located at Fijabi street,Ijaiye,Lagos.
The night before, she had have to stay awake
because one of her friends-a male friend- did
midnight call with her.
Suddenly, a noise came from the school
compound,she jumped up to realise that she had
been sleeping. She used her hands to clear her face,
then she saw it.
She jumped up in fear.
The class was empty.
‘Yeah!!!what is this?!’
She was surprised to see only children’s clothes on
‘what is this?’ She mouthed, her heart flipping and
At the other end, a teacher who left the staff room
was not seen again and some of the students-a
very few- have disappeared.
Students were shouting, the secondary school
students have turned to something else as they
started running here and there.
There was noise everywhere. The naughty primary
school pupils had turn it to fun, only a few of them
looked on with fear.
From the street, a car ran into the school’s gate
and bent it inward, the gateman stood to see what
it was with fear. He took a fat and strong stick to
defend himself in case there will be any attack.
Upon getting there, he discovered there was nobody
in the car.
‘You are mad ooo’,he shouted with anger at no one
in particular,’You use your car jam this gate you kon
run komot, na God go destroy your life as you
destroy this gate….until you come back…Na your car
go suffer for you’, he said as he run into the school
compound to open the gate.
‘I go lock am for inside here and nobody go hold me
till i see you’.
He opened the door wide and ran to the car,he
opened the door of car angrily, and was going to try
to drive it in when he saw some clothes on the car
including a lady’s underwears. Seeing this he
jumped out of the car, hitting his head on the door
of the car. He ran into the school compound and did
not stop until he hit the fat principal who was going
to call the children to order.
Although, the plane was a large one, which could
convey up to 417,there were 380 passengers and 20
air hostesses,host, and crew members.
Mr.Paul sat beside the pilot and was still thinking
about how he would corpulate with the beautiful air
hostess that just left their side. He did not like the
way His co-pilot had return her gesture of love.
He love the way she smells and could not
understand how she manage to smell nice always.
He could not describe on a paper how short and
beautiful her skirt was: it was so neat and well-
ironed.Her shirt made him want to keep on looking
at her b—m, maybe it was the pendant she wore-it
dropped-hanging in the middle of her b—m and
that makes him want to have her by all means.
‘You are always doing Holy…holy’,he started to
accuse his co-pilot.
‘Ahhh!!!Thank you!!Do you want me to miss heaven
because of her…’
‘Which rapture,Shola, which rapture,is this not the
2014th year after his death…’
‘Paul, you missing it,Jesus will soon come,the bible
says his kingdom is at hand….’
‘ohhhhhhh!!!There is no God, there is no Heaven,
there is no Jesus…you are just fooling yourself’,he
said as he left for the toilet, still scheming a way to
get the air hostess’ attention.
He was still thinking of this when he entered and
was surprised to meet only Shola’s clothes on the
‘Yeahhhhhhh!!!’ He screamed. ‘Yeeeahhh!!!’
Two air hostess rushed into the cabin.
‘What happened’,one of them asked.
He could not talk, he just pointed at the empty
‘RAPTURE!RAPTURE!!RAPTURE!!!’ he said as he
held unto his chest and fainted.
