I woke up to the light beaming directly to my eyes, i struggled and finally opened them but it became worst when i could not get up. I remembered i had a dream but could not figure it out. I was left with the thought of the words of my teacher back in secondary school, Mr Lawrence always said 2020 was going to be a year of liberation.
My name is Blaq James, i came from the south south region of Nigeria, i wanted the best out of life. Other years has not been so good but this year came with lots of wishs and looking into my wish list, it seemed like it was going to be the best year. I mean i got a job, not just any job but a teaching job in my career and one that fits my nature as a student, i also joined the best orchestra group i had long wished for.
Away from my thought i turned and saw Precious, Precious was my roommate, a french final year student of Igantius Ajuru University, she was a nice girl. She was actually packing her stuff for the weekend travel and that means i would be alone for the weekend. Aside the tiredness i felt when i woke up, it was a cold friday. I picked up my phone and turned my data on, the first notification i got was that from opera mini, the notification read the immediate closure of school due to the dreadful disease that has been taken lifes in China and now its here in my own Nigeria. It was heart breaking, not because the corana virus had infected people in Nigeria but the fact that i’d to go back home. I wished i could sleep and wake up not seeing that news again. Going home was like being dead, where everything is ripped off from you but it was just for a month and that was my hope.
Finally i came home, a month passed and we had not been called back instead the corona virus continue to spread widely;taking lives. Thank God i was not infected but emotionally, spiritually and mentally everything died as a result of the continous spread of the dreadful disease tagged Covid-19. Its the fifth month and am still at home and the disease cannot be said to be completely gone.
