The day I turned into a loan shark!

Okay, I am merely assuming that everyone got the chance to work during the vacation but now it’s time for school.  School is a full time thing so ‘bye bye’ work and hello books! Seeing as everyone is back to being jobless, getting used to campus life again with no money is almost impossible.

Okay, I am merely assuming that everyone got the chance to work during the vacation but now it’s time for school.  School is a full time thing so ‘bye bye’ work and hello books! Seeing as everyone is back to being jobless, getting used to campus life again with no money is almost impossible.

So this guy came to me and asked me for some money (it’s not a secret that I’m the only one with a job in my class). He told me about his sick sister and how urgently he needed money. Being the good boy that my parents raised me to be, I decided to lend this fellow RWF48, 000 as he begged, promised and swore to pay it back soon as his allowance came through. 

This was right about the time when all tests were as good as done. People were relaxed and enjoying their time on campus. Students will always be students; there are places that might cause some sort of allergic reaction if visited by students so that means they always chill in the same old cheap spots.

So, I decide to extend my good nature and ‘house’ (buy drinks) my friends only to find the dude I gave my money seated at a wide table enjoying a humongous pizza with the hottest girl in class. Okay, first of all it hurt that he lied to me and second, hitting on that girl had always been a dream of mine - was still looking for a killer strategy.

So I sat where he couldn’t see me and the next day, I asked him how his sister was doing and I quote, “She’s doing well though its hard because I wasn’t able to buy her all the healthy foods and drinks she needs but when I get more money, everything will be okay.”

Damn!! The next day the guy came to class with a cheap smart phone and worst of all it had Whatsapp. He just couldn’t stop tormenting other students about how bad their phones were and how chatting is cool. So I waited patiently and soon enough, students started receiving their money from the government.

I dialled his number in a rush but his phone was off and he stopped attending classes. Really? I started the hunt and guess what; the guy didn’t even have a sister! I looked everywhere, and then...issues popped. Okay to be honest I had eaten beans the previous night and desperately needed the bathroom, so while making my way, I ‘whatsapped’ him only to hear a sound in the next loo. I tried again and heard it again. So I asked him where he was and he said he was in the village but would be back the next day. So I quietly waited at the door and guess who came out? I started by taking the phone!
