Hey there,my name is Osarentin Benedicta Okoh but everyone calls me benny which i prefer anyway, i am tall for my age which is 9 years old, I am fair, I have brown eyes, and I am the first of two children. I just got admission into my dream school, lekki british school am now officially a big girl with all the perks atached to it (a new phone staying up to late with permission etc).
This story is all about the experiences that life throws at me beginning on my first at at school the problems I face while i am in school and outside of school. They are going to be funny, crazy, sad etc. Am going to make friends, enemies,and frenemies(friends +enemies) have multiple crushes(hey am a regular teenage girl),get a broken heart(hey it cant be high school without at least one heart break). So relax kick off your shoes and enjoy the ride bumbs included.
“Benny wake up its time for school” my mom shouted as she passed my room to go and mix my water for bathing”
Mrs Esosa Okoh was a dark skinned woman whose age is a state secret so it’s unknown but I guessed she was somewhere between 35 and 40.
God I did not want to wake up just five more minutes.
“Bennedicta Osarumwense Okoh will you get up this instant before I get a cane” she shouted at me in Benin.
That was the motivation I needed to get up I so did not want to feel pain this morning.I got up and went about my daily routine in a way that would have made a snail say “you are too slow”I was fully dressed and eating a breakfast of bread, butter and tea when my dad came in and sat at the table.
Mr Osamede Okoh was a tall light skinned man who looked younger than his 46 years of age.
“Good morning lamogun daddy” I greeted him in a mixture of Benin and English that made most people who heard laugh.
“I have heard my daughter” he answered me in Benin “so are you excited about your first day at school”
of course I was a bundle of nerves but I was not going to tell him that
“yes I am daddy”
“Good where is your brother Osarodion”
“He is still sleeping enjoying the last week of holiday he has”
“Ok let’s go I don’t want you to be late for your first day at school”
I carried my school bag which was beside my chair and followed my dad out the door my first day of school I wonder how it’s going to go.
This is my first story on naija stories and I would not mind constructive criticism but please go easy on me.
