MY MIRABEL MY SACRIFICIAL LAMB
My alarm went of, i woke up feeling cool, i
prayed to God, did some push-ups, brushed
my teeth, bath, prepared myself for school.
I checked my phone, saw like 4 messages
and 3 missed. The callers was my mum and
my uncle… I was about to leave it for later
but, Oh! My Uncle!! I swiftly checked my
1 from mtn, 2 from 4900,
1 from firstbank yes!! i screamed out
as i saw what was credited in my account,
what do u expect from an engineer uncle, i
wont tell u guys the amount *Tongues
I walked in, few people in the class ‘coz i
came early (serious student dat kin tin). I
went through my notes ‘coz i don’t want to
forget what i what taught, a lecturer may
decide to give test anytime, failing exams
not me by His Grace. One by one, two by
three people arrives seated gisting, waiting
for the lecturer.
Then class suddenly calmed, i raised my
head to see the lecturer but it wasn’t him.
You guessed right, its her, Mirabel. All
eyes was on her as she gracefully walked
in to the class. What an arrogant fellow in
my mind. Shortly, the Accounting lecturer
walked in and immediately ordered for the
entrance door to be closed.
He wrote a new topic on the board saying
we’d discuss about it today.
He started asking questions about about
what we discussed on our previous lecture.
Lecturer: On our previous meeting, we
discussed Cost, the types, and also
Overhead Apportionment. Let’s refresh our
memory a little. Class what is Cost and its
types? Now close your notes and just put
up your hand.
Promise stood up and answered it
Lecturer: Good. What is Overheard
Lecturer: Didn’t we discussed it?
Class: We did
Lecturer: Then what’s happening?
Lecturer: I would give you your test /20
-5marks this moment
Lecturer: Shut up!! I hate dull class
That kind of statement always burst my
brain or maybe most students. I was about
to stand up before i heard an answering
voice, it was Mirabel. (This will be good,
now i’m ready)
Mirabel: Overhead Apportionment is the
procedure whereby indirect cost are split
fairly between cost centres.
Lecturer: The first stage of Overhead
Apportionment? (referring to Mirabel).
Lecturer: Anybody else?
I stood up to answer for the first time.
Chai! big boy feeling nervous
Me: Sir, Overhead Apportionment involves
the sharing out of common cost in an
equitable way or proportion between the
production and service department
according to benefits they received. And
the first stage of Overhead Apportionment
is to identify all overhead cost as
Production department, Administrative,
Selling and Distribution Overhead.
Lecturer: Very good! What’s ur name
Me: Victor Sir
Lecturer: 5marks for You, give me your
I gave him, which he wrote down.
I could see how eyes were facing my
direction, it made me feel uncomfortable, i
just controlled myself till the end of the
Girl 1: Nice try dude, u saved us
Girl 2: Nna na u try pass
Girl 3: *smiles*
Well Well Well… i think i just earn myself a
spot in the department.
I called my uncle to tell him i saw his
missed call and message then thanked him,
i also called my mum, we talked *********.
Promise: Mr. Man
Me: Young lady
Promise: I’m a lady jhoor
Me: Says who?
Promise: My physique
Me: Hhmmm igbo girl(I guess she wants
me to check her out, right? Yea)
Me: Nothing abeg, i’m really hungry
Promise: Lets go out na
Me: After you
We got to an eatery, fed the warms in our
stomach then walked back to class not
after sighting that girl (Mirabel). Another
lecturer came in to perform his duty. During
his lectures, he asked questions which
answering became a competition between
Mirabel and I with contributions from
Promise and others. The competition in the
class impressed the lecturers alot, they
acknowledged our department as an
We the competitors Mirabel and I are yet to
discover our limits. I’m the best in every
course subject but maths, Hhmmm maths…
just good in it with the help of Promise
who was better. My limit was maths, i need
to know her own limit.
What do you think guys?
