Story By Pablojay

As he lay on his 16inches bed cuddling the pillow as
if it was his girlfriend though he thought it was
folake,sleep couldn't come that easy goddamn it he
was so walked up like that moment Barcelona is the
last game holding your 239k merrybet ticket and
they are beating Celtic 6:0 at 89mins God knows you
need a paramedic to try make you sleep that night
because you will play musics,wash plates and
clothes, sweep and tidy your room then to your
greatest surprise when check the time its still
2:41am you even try making night calls but will be
shocked that none of your friends will pick not until
you try playing candy crush on your phone that you
will wake up and find the so much anticipated day
moving fast and that's almost what happened to
kemi just that he didn't wash rather his mind would
have preferred washing than the work it did under a
couple of hours.kemi in his poor mind was
thinking,she must have seen the text and probably
most have read it by now,how will she feel?will she
even come to the cocktail bar? Was the last thing i
remembered before a heavy bang landed on my door
first it was like a dream and the bang came again
this time in a more aggressive manner kemi come on
let's go and play ball gosh! it was Jude my silly lodge
mate.Jude am coming was what came out of my
heavy mouth and it was then it came to reality that
its few mins past 9am Saturday morning,i stood up
did my normal press up my homie zuky always
advice I do that every morning before anything then
to the birthroom there I brushed my mouth washed
my face stepped to the wardrobe picked my blue
Chelsea jersey that I customized my nick pablo and
the number 4 boldly written on back of it to the pitch
opposite my lodge it is called "San siro" who knows
maybe because of the rough tackles played there the
pitch is popularly known on campus though getting
there the 1st and 2rd set are already playing so I
joined the 3rd set without argument 30mins no goal
one set was eliminated through penalties and my set
entered throughout the game i was no where to be
found my teammates were all lamenting its only
smart my friend from the same hometown that knew
I was not my real self all I said was that am not fit till
our goalkeeper conceded a cheap goal from a volley
and we were out with me not making any
remark,smart rushed me and was like boy you could

boarded a bike and zoomed off,bike was the last on
my mind so I waited patiently for a cab and here we
