My alarm went of, i woke up feeling cool, i prayed to God, did some push-ups, brushed my teeth, bath, prepared myself for school. I checked my phone, saw like 4 messages and 3 missed. The callers was my mum and my uncle… I was about to leave it for later but, Oh! My Uncle!! I swiftly checked my inbox
1 from mtn, 2 from 4900,
1 from firstbank yes!! i screamed out
as i saw what was credited in my account, what do u expect from an engineer uncle, i wont tell u guys the amount Tongues outLol.
I walked in, few people in the class ‘coz i came early (serious student dat kin tin). I went through my notes ‘coz i don’t want to forget what i what taught, a lecturer may decide to give test anytime, failing exams not me by His Grace. One by one, two by three people arrives seated gisting, waiting for the lecturer.
Then class suddenly calmed, i raised my head to see the lecturer but it wasn’t him. You guessed right, its her, Mirabel. All eyes was on her as she gracefully walked in to the class. What an arrogant fellow in my mind. Shortly, the Accounting lecturer walked in and immediately ordered for the entrance door to be closed.
He wrote a new topic on the board saying we’d discuss about it today.
He started asking questions about about what we discussed on our previous lecture.
Lecturer: On our previous meeting, we discussed Cost, the types, and also Overhead Apportionment. Let’s refresh our memory a little. Class what is Cost and its types? Now close your notes and just put up your hand.
Promise stood up and answered it immediately.
Lecturer: Good. What is Overheard Apportionment?
Lecturer: Didn’t we discussed it?
Class: We did
Lecturer: Then what’s happening?
Lecturer: I would give you your test /20 -5marks this moment
Lecturer: Shut up!! I hate dull class
That kind of statement always burst my brain or maybe most students. I was about to stand up before i heard an answering voice, it was Mirabel. (This will be good, now i’m ready)
Mirabel: Overhead Apportionment is the procedure whereby indirect cost are split fairly between cost centres.
Lecturer: The first stage of Overhead Apportionment? (referring to Mirabel).
Lecturer: Anybody else?
I stood up to answer for the first time. Chai! big boy feeling nervous
Me: Sir, Overhead Apportionment involves the sharing out of common cost in an equitable way or proportion between the production and service department according to benefits they received. And the first stage of Overhead Apportionment is to identify all overhead cost as Production department, Administrative, Selling and Distribution Overhead.
Lecturer: Very good! What’s ur name
Me: Victor Sir
Lecturer: 5marks for You, give me your admission number.
I gave him, which he wrote down.
I could see how eyes were facing my direction, it made me feel uncomfortable, i just controlled myself till the end of the lecture.
Girl 1: Nice try dude, u saved us
Girl 2: Nna na u try pass
Girl 3: smiles
Well Well Well… i think i just earn myself a spot in the department.
I called my uncle to tell him i saw his missed call and message then thanked him, i also called my mum, we talked *.
Promise: Mr. Man
Me: Young lady
Promise: I’m a lady jhoor
Me: Says who?
Promise: My physique
Me: Hhmmm igbo girl(I guess she wants me to check her out, right? Yea)
Me: Nothing abeg, i’m really hungry
Promise: Lets go out na
Me: After you
We got to an eatery, fed the warms in our stomach then walked back to class not after sighting that girl (Mirabel). Another lecturer came in to perform his duty. During his lectures, he asked questions which answering became a competition between Mirabel and I with contributions from Promise and others. The competition in the class impressed the lecturers alot, they acknowledged our department as an Intelligent department.
We the competitors Mirabel and I are yet to discover our limits. I’m the best in every course subject but maths, Hhmmm maths… just good in it with the help of Promise who was better. My limit was maths, i need to know her own limit.
What do you think guys?
