Love is not finding a perfect person, but seeing an imperfect person perfectly. True love isn’t expensive, it’s a free gift from the heart. Despite human imperfections, the heart knows what it wants, and in the end of the day, Love conquers all….

The following monday morning, students from the department of sociology were seated in the lecture theatre, while some had assembled themselves in various groups discussing about the rift that transpired between Femi and Ibrahim two days ago. The news spreaded like a virus and everyone seemed to have something to say concerning the fued. Except the ‘beefers’ who were less concerned about people gossiping them.


**************

“Attention everyone! I’m holding the list containing the matric numbers of our newly admitted direct-entry students. If you hear your name, kindly run come and collect your number.”
The class-rep interrupted the atmosphere while dropping yet another grammartical blunder. The entire lecture theatre roared in laughter due to the offence committed by the No1 man in class; He was always fond of committing grammartical genocide.

The class-rep feigned ignorance to their stupidity, and proceeded to calling the names on the list.


“Zainab Kadiri!”
He shouted but she was absent from class.


“Odunayo Cynthia Michael.”
Ayo stood up gracefully on hearing her name, she was walking towards the class-rep when something suddenly struck her inwardly. She felt a sharp pain in her stomach which sent her crumbling to the floor, while she yipped in distress. The pain moved to the lower right side of the abdomen and became even more sharper and severe. This time, she could barely walk or stand upright. People rushed towards helping her, still, she was unable to stand, as she la!d on the floor crying helplessly. By this time, the whole class was already disorganised, as on-lookers gathered around her in a bid to ascertain what was happening. All efforts to ascertain the problem proved abortive as she could hardly speak nor move her muscles fluently. The class-rep took over the situation and after several consultations, she muttered slowly that they should take her to the school clinic. It seemed she was the only one who knew the problem. Since she couldn’t walk, the class-rep carried her on his back as they made out of the lecture theatre, while some students walked slowly behind them, obviously marvelled.



Femi was shocked as the unfortunate event unravelled before his very eyes, for a moment, he was confused not knowing whether to help her or not. Just then, he saw an hand-bag belonging to her and he quickly got hold of it – to avoid stories that touch. Inside the hand-bag was her handset and other valuables. On his way out of the classroom, Femi saw Ibrahim sitting relaxed pressing his phone, and he thought to himself, whether Ibrahim even had empathy for his new found lover.


On arrival to the clinic, Ayo was diagnose with Appendictis. Evidently, she had been battling the health condition up until recently.

Appendicitis can erupt when the appendix becomes inflamed and swollen. The appendix is a small finger-like tube that is attached to the first part of the large intestine, called the caecum. It is located in the right side of the abdomen.


The clinic management scanned her using x-ray and discovered that the appendix had become ruptured (burst), and if not quickly removed, could spill infected contents into the abdominal cavity. This is a more serious medial emergency, and if left untreated, infection of the lining of the abdominal cavity could be life-threatening. Ayo’s situation required urgent operation, and since the clinic doesn’t perform surgery, they recommended that she be taken to St’ Maria Goretti, a private hospital in the hub of the town, which they did with immediate alacrity.
On arrival, she was taken to an emergency ward where she was placed on a sick bed. The doctor in-charge demanded for half-payment before the operation would be carried out. The class-rep tried to contact her parents but her mobile phone was no where to be found, they resulted to begging the doctor to please conduct the surgery first before payment, but the doctor sternly declined as he reiterated that it was a private hospital and that was their policy, with little or no regard for Ayo who was lying on her death-bed. The doctor only gave her paracetamol to help relieve the pain, and left them stranded in the room almost immediately.

Meanwhile, back at the school premises, Enemona approached Femi asking what step he had intended to take concerning Ayo’s predicament, and he blatantly stated that there was nothing he could do regarding the situation. Mona made him see reasons why he should forget about the past, and atleast, go and see her to know how she’s fairing.
After a while, Femi consented to what he said, then they both boarded separate bikes to the school clinic where they were later re-directed to the hospital where she was transfered to…
