My back, legs and hands ached so bad so I stretched to release the tension, it had felt like I walked a thousand miles.
Suddenly someone nudged me from behind but my grip I retained. Crossing his hand over my shoulders I exclaimed “younger Aaron! What are you doing here?”
He smiled and pointed towards my right. Following the gesture I turned, another figure that looked like Aaron but with a likely 4 years difference walked up close “come, we’ve something to show you.”
I simply walked with them and we arrived at what seemed to be deserted. No, no the whole country was deserted. “What happened?” I asked worry written all over my face.
“Coronavirus,” they answered in unison. We moved, schools were shut as well as worship centres, no form of social gathering. “This isn’t possible, this is Nigeria.”
“Oh dear,” older Aaron spoke up, “Aaron don’t be naïve this condition is all over the world. Coronavirus is coming and fast. It will instigate fear between neighbours, extroverts will be confined, students chased from classrooms, workers will be forced to work from home.”
The electronic devices on the highways showed death rate on the rise, hunger became more prevalent than the said virus; health workers kept repeating the precautionary measures and an assurance of a vaccine.
With fear in my heart, I turned and asked “when it’s this ending?”
They sensed my fear and smiled wryly.
I jolted up from my bed, panting, Grace was beside me.
“Happy new month!” She exclaimed.
Puzzled, “which month is that?” I asked.
“It has arrived.”
