“Baba God? Kill your babe?” Prof muttered distortedly as he walked away, stopped abruptly then approached me again. This time making a mockery of the misunderstanding he created with his damning choice of words and infuriating me to the point of uncontrollable anger. “It is sad to see you express so much unbelievable naivety at such simple expression of grammar. ...

Green hostel 2 -1

SADIST: Life was no longer the same in Green Hostel after Kunle’s demise. Okoro beat himself up about it for weeks. On certain days, he’d sit alone at night and drown his soul in cheap whiskey.
