It was past 8 already, i left soldier’s club for my house. When i got home, i was tired and unable to cook, i decided to check on Mummy Teni if she has something in her kitchen that she can offer me, Mummy Teni is my neighbour, i stayed in room 1 while she stays in room 2, her husband was among those who conducted our screening exercise but unfortunately for him, he was nominated to Maiduguri for an internal operation before i came back form training. Mummy Teni and i have been so closed since the very first day i moved into that my room. We do call eachother Neighbour by name…

Me: ****Knocking at her door****

Mummy Teni: Who is that

Me: Neighbour! Neighbour!!

Mummy Teni: Neighbour?

Me: Sleepy Sleepy

Mummy Teni: ***Laughing*** Leave my son alone ooo. Where are you coming from by this time of the day

Me: Soldier’s Club

Mummy Teni: ***Shut the door***

After i finished eating, I sat down on my bed, initiated a chat with Ayomide. She replied instantly as if she has been waiting for my message, we chatted for about 30 minutes before i slept off.
