Voice: eyin wo niyen?
I wanted to run away as one of my friend’s babe drew me back and replied the person that screamed a question at us.
Babe: awa omo yin nooni (we are your children)
Voice: latibo (from where)
Babe: school wa niyen ni tosi. (Our school is not far from here)
Voice: kilewa shey nibi? (what do you want in my farm?)
Babe: awa pade arawa nibi ni. (We came to meet ourselves here ni)
Voice: shey ko n shey eyin tema n ji n kan ni oko mi? (hope its not those that do steal at my farm?)
Babe: omo jeje niwa, ama wa ran yin lowo gan ti aba shey tan. (We’ll come to help you when we’re through sir)
Voice: ema jaye yin lo. (Enjoy yourselves)
Babe: baba baba. Eshey (thanks)
I was relieved with that.

We moved away from where we all sat to a corner where I was battling her with battalions of question.
Me: which kind connection dey btw u and those girls?
Yetty: they’re my friends.

Yetty: they’re my friends at our area but they are my senior in school.

Yetty: but what? Wo, forget. Can we move?
Me: u dey fight me?
Yetty: I’m sorry jor, let’s just go.

After getting where others were, we all wanted to go our different ways as we heard a shout from a familiar voice which came from nowhere.
Voice: teba koja ibeyen (if you move).
