“I don’t think I need to send you a memo to remind you about how I set my examination questions because you all should be conversant with it by now, if you study as you are supposed to and you know everything you are supposed to know then you will definitely have no problem writing my exam. For those who think they can’t study enough or are not brilliant enough to write the exams, you know how we do it, come and see me in my office so we can talk about it” said Mallam Jibril and as soon as he was done addressing the class, he packed his textbooks and left.
Mallam Jibril is one of the lecturers taking the economics students, he is well known for his corrupt ways, if not the most corrupt then he should be among the most corrupt lecturers in the whole of the school. He is a man that wouldn’t be less than 50 years old in age but he still enjoys flirting around female students who are young enough to be his daughter. All the students are aware that you cannot only read and think you will pass his exam, you must sort his course before you can pass.
‘Sort’ is the slang students use in referring to bribing a lecturer to pass his/her course but in Mallam Jibril’s case, the girls can either sort him by cash or by having an affair with him while the boys can only sort him strictly by money.
“Guy make we go chop for cafeteria before the next lecture start” Ben said to Isaac who was behind him sitting beside Ejiro.
“Olboi I no get money oo, na you go pay” Isaac asked.
“You dey craze, I tell you say na you wan pay before” he replied and stood up to leave.
“Ejiro I want to go and eat, I will see you when I get back” Isaac said to Ejiro and left the class.
“Olboi you no even greet Ejiro at all” Isaac asked Ben as they were walking down to the cafeteria.
“I don greet her when we been jam for gate this morning” Ben replied like he didn’t want to speak further on it and Isaac perfectly understood and hence he didn’t probe further.
They haven’t gone far from the class when they heard a feminine voice calling there names, they turned towards the direction where the voice was coming from and they realised it was Beatrice. They tarried for her to catch up with them.
“Where are you guys going to” she asked as she hugged the both of them.
“We are going to the cafeteria” Isaac replied.
“Ohh but can I talk to you for a minute” she said to Isaac.
“I will just be under that tree” Ben said to them and excused himself.
He walked down to the tree and sat down on a small piece of wood facing their lecture room. Coincidentally Ejiro also walked outside the lecture room and looked straight to where Ben was and immediately looked away. Ben kept looking towards her side and at that moment he realised how deeply he must have hurt her, he remembered all the moments they spent together, he felt guilty for all the pains he must have made her go through. He decided to walk towards her and see if they could talk things out.
As he was about to cross to meet her, he was obstructed by a car that suddenly pulled up infront of him. It’s Anne’s car.
“Where are you going to in such a hurry” Anne asked with a straightface.
“Errmm Errmm We are going to the Cafeteria” he stammered.
“And why are you heading towards that direction” she asked suspiciously pointing towards where Ejiro was standing.
“What directio….” Ben raised his head to where she pointed to and wanted to reply but he couldn’t finish the sentence.
He ran across the road without looking for oncoming cars, he ran towards where Ejiro was standing, she was lying down on the ground now. Isaac who saw Ben running like a mad man ran after him without even knowing why Ben was running.
“What happened to her” Isaac shouted when he saw Ejiro lying on the floor.
“She fainted again” Ben shouted back to reply.
They both lifted her and rushed towards where Anne’s car was. Anne who had also realised what happened ran out of the car to open the back door and then rushed back to ignite the car. Ben and Isaac laid her in the back seat, Ben sat beside her and Isaac ran to sit in the front.
It all happened so fast that Beatrice couldn’t even move or ask what was happening, before she could realise what was happening, Anne has already drove out of the school compound.
Anne drove so fast that even the best racer in the movie fast and furious will have to give his best to beat her in a race at that very moment. In a twinkle of an eye, they were already in the University of Abuja teaching hospital. The nurses rushed her in with a stretcher and instructed them to wait at the waiting room.
After they waited for a long time, the doctor came out from the room they carried her to.
“Doctor what’s the situation right now, is she alright” Ben asked as they all rushed to where the doctor was.
“It’s like she hit her head on a very hard substance when she fainted which has made her fall into coma” said the doctor.
“Coma” they all screamed
“The coma is not what you guys should be worried about right now” doctor
“What then should we be worried about then” Isaac inquired
“About what has been causing her to faint” he replied
“And what is that” Ben.
“She is suffering from Cardiac arrhythmia” Doctor said
“What’s that” Anne asked after what seemed like a long silence.
“It is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow” the doctor said and when he saw they didn’t seem to understand what he’s saying, he continued “Many types of arrhythmia have no symptoms. When symptoms are present these may include palpitations or feeling a pause between heartbeats. More seriously there may be lightheadedness, passing out, shortness of breath, or chest pain. While most types of arrhythmia are not serious, some predispose a person to complications such as stroke or heart failure, Others may result in cardiac arrest”
“Isn’t she too young for all this terminologies and sicknesses you are calling” Anne asked.
“Yeah it happens mostly to people from age 60 and above but on a rare case like this, it happens amongst young ones” the doctor replied smiling.
“Okay what is the way forward now” Ben
“She needs a surgery as soon as possible” he replied
“Please proceed with the surgery immediately, I will foot all the bills” Anne said.
“The issue now is not about the money alone, it’s about the kind of surgery she needs”
“What do you mean by that” Ben asked angrily.
“She needs a heart transplant” the doctor replied with a serious look this time.
“Heart transplant” they all chorused.
