The Painful Pleasure (By TPP) samlak
Since they all came before me, i just
had to wait till they are
done with theirs.
I sat down with the other four
people on a long bench. “How
much is the registration?” I asked
the young girl sitting next
to me (who looked quite pretty),
“good afternoon” she
answered. “Please pardon my
manners, that should have
been my line.” I said to her. She
answered and said, “No
problem anyway, i didn’t mean it
that way, i just greeted you
because i felt i had to, there is no
big deal. Anyway, the guy
said the registration is 1000 naira
The price seemed quite much, but i

what all others paid. So
while we were waiting, i just enjoyed

Me: Prince ke, my name is Dapo o.
Its nice meeting you
(stretching my hands to shake her)
Sandra: The pleasure is mine
(shaking hands with me). .
We talked on and on, and she told me
that she was admitted
to study philosophy. I waited until it
was my turn, then I did
my registration. Sandra left and
waved me, “see you in
school” she said. i waved her back,
and she smiled from
afar. It was when i saw that smile
that it occurred to me that
