Is Repair Beyond Reach?
Before meeting Dream, Decision rehearsed his speech over and over again so as not to spurn the opportunity he has been given. As he walked to the cafeteria where they both decided to meet, Decision offered a silent prayer to God for his friend.
At the cafeteria, Decision looked at Dream who sat across him with pity. He is face was drawn and haggard. He could hardly recognize him, the aura and brightness that once radiated around him was now replaced by a dim palled look.
After exchanging pleasantries, Decision was about to begin with the speech he has spent the day rehearsing when he noticed that Dream was just there in the body but he has wandered. After calling him for the third (3rd) time, he tapped him to get his attention. Dream felt a nudge as he jerked back to reality. His friend was staring at him. “Oga you don travel far o, wetin you dey think?” Decision said. Dream was speechless as tears rolled down his eyes.
The Downward Trend
Decision asked someone beside him to please check the result for the name he pointed to because it was unclear whose result it was. The person confirmed what he saw. His friend made a GP of 4.5, bringing his CGPA to 4.83. He was so excited, and he could not wait to share the good news with his friend.
As he was about to make the call, he stopped dead in his track when a thought came to him. He turned and walked away, unsure of what to do. He was happy for his friend but had this feeling of uncertainty about what the future held for his friend who might decide to continue. Deep down, he offered a quick prayer to God to change his friend.
Maintaining High Standard
Four (4) weeks into the new semester, Decision was still to resume. Throughout this period, the two friends kept in touch and were anticipating their reunion. Things were about to become different.
Dream had earlier acquired accommodation for both of them alongside some others. But due to his delay in coming, the hall administrator decided to give the bed space to another student. This was the beginning of a strained relationship between the two friends.
