The Day I Cried

We had just driven into Ikeja shopping mall when I heard an Ariel advert on the radio. I told my driver to stop so I could listen to it, so he parked right besides Steers.

Glancing out of the window, I saw a boy, probably 17 or 18 years old, who looked familiar. His lanky height, yellow eyes, pale skin and his teeth with a slight over bite..... I watched him for about a minute, wondering what he was up to, as he kept looking all around him.

Then, he came up to the window and knocked timidly. I lowered the glass and asked: "Yes, how can I help you?"

He looked at me through his clear glasses and said. "I was summing up courage to knock, I am a 200L student in University of Lagos; and I am asking for assistance to pay my department fees..... I just need XX naira to pay the fees and to buy my drugs, because I am a sickler and....."

I jumped in "Yes I know you are a sickler, I have been watching you actually. I have a brother with your condition, he looks just like you. You shouldn't be out here in this hot sun". I knew dehydration is a killer for these guys.
