Mum: Make sure you pay more consideration to your studies this term; I won’t tolerate your report last term for a second time.
Daughter: Okay, Mum. I will try my best.
Mum: Please, and your best must be proved.
Daughter: Okay; Thank you, Mum.
Mum: You are welcome, lest I forget. What time will you finish with your special class? I will love to pick you then visit Mrs. Jane. She is receiving us in Reading Affairs this evening.
Daughter: I should be through by 5 pm.
Mum: Oh, that will be fine. See you then, cheers.
Later in the evening…
Daughter: Mum, I enjoyed myself today. So this is what you do every Thursdays and I have never been invited?
Mum: Sigh… Not at all my daughter. Mrs. Jane asked me to invite you, so you can learn from the topic shared today.
Daughter: Oh I understand. Anyway, I can’t wait to start this with my friends.
Mum: Yes, that will be a valuable thing. Specifically, it will change the mindset of your people with social media. I will guide you through. That will be after your Cambridge exam. I don’t want a situation your Dad will complain.
Daughter: No problem, Mum. In fact, I will be so delighted to be the first that will introduce the reading affairs with my friends.
Mum: That is good my dear, God will grant you the wisdom?
Daughter: Amen. Mum, our special class was so fascinated today?
Mum: Tell me more dear…
Daughter: Mum, my teacher… Paused!
Mum: Your teacher did what… Please, I don’t want to hear a story now. This is a New Year. We can’t afford any exorbitant jaunts for now.
Daughter: Mum, wait now. Haha… Chill, Mum!
Mum: Okay, what is it o?
Daughter: Anyway, my teacher said we are in the Next Level.
Mum, is it true?
Mum: When you meet your teacher ask him…. Next Level ko, New Level ni.
