Ena was a new undergraduate at the state university of California, It was her first time at the University and everything was new to her, she just got her keys from the land lady few days ago and was still settling into her new home. Classes had kicked off and she was constantly moping around looking lost, everything was strange and she had no luck in the social department as well, as she had no friends yet and was not good at making friends either.
As she walked down the school halls, her eyeballs were spinning with lots of people walking, running, screaming and talking around her. The halls were long and wide, she was a very observant person, she noticed every blonde,pink or red hair that walked past her, the nerds with glasses, the slay queens with their drooling lipstick and fake weaves, crunchy noise from their 8 inches high heels and Jezebel nails, all the clicks from social media from their mobile phones, popping sounds from their chewing gums, her ears were on overdrive, all the noise was a like a big wave of cacophony…
Learning in such a big hall was a first, her eyes were like saucers as more students trooped in, and finally the Professor walked in. She had never seen such a young professor in all her years of existence, he should be in his mid thirties, he was a sight for sore eyes, well carved chin, straight nose, deep baritone voice, nice hair, black shoes as shiny as the sun, and those orbs could make anyone go weak in the knees. And boy was he stylish, look at those pants and his wrist watch was on another level.
Young lady young lady young lady……
I could hear someone scream in the background, but i was enjoying my fantasy too much to care, that must be a lunatic trying to bring me out of my trance, such beautiful sight wasn’t one to forget in a hurry.
Trying to regain my senses as someone behind tapped me .And behold, half of the world was staring at me, I wanted to shrink as I realized I was the “young lady” from earlier, that means the professor also caught me staring, flushed from all that I stood up as the Professor walked up to me with several eyeballs on me and sounds of laughter ringing to the ends of the earth. I literally wanted to escape like a genie in a kettle.
Recounting my first day to my mom on the phone got her laughing soo hard, and boy did I have a lot ahead of me. As, I heated dinner, a message from Violet, my high school friend popped up on the screen, she is my favorite buddy, she is what I would call… Scratching my head I tried to recall the term they used to tag such people as..
Ehe, it finally came to me, BAE,
Its’s called bae. Smiling to myself for forgetting such easy term, Violet was bae, definitely bae, she was having a relationship thingy with her cute boyfriend. My face was getting red with thoughts of having my own “mahn” as my friends used to say. Red? I was Nigerian, that wasn’t possible I taught to myself.. It would be a first as well, blushing to myself, I carried my dinner to my room to eat .
As I sat down to eat, I heard a knock, who could that be by this time I wasn’t expecting anyone, I reached my bag for my pepper spray. I heard the knock again. I quickly reached for the door while saying a short prayer to my father , who knew what was behind the door. I tried peeping through the peep hole, I saw a dark figure.
I was faced with a very gorgeous man, I was literally drooling over him in my mind. Take a picture, it would last longer the pretty man said smiling mischievously. Mmmmm, cocky I thought rolling my eyes .Hello, your the new neighbour he asked so sweetly stretching forth his hands for a handshake.
I brought a pie to welcome you to the neighbour he said giving me a small food bag.Cocky and nice,👌. The thought was indeed sweet as I smiled mischevously to myself but someone has not given me free food before, that was a first as well amongst many others.
And, so the week rolled by filled with many first time experiences at home and school. Indeed was it a First Time journey. It started with my first steps… Want more of this, read this
