Episode 36 Andrew’s POV cont.
Some people had already arrived and the place was almost full. I walked through the hallway heading to the hall but bumped into someone. I looked down and met small angry eyes.
‘Mister didn’t you work on your eyes?’ He asked.
‘What do you mean?’
‘This is the second time you are bumping into me. Or should I baptise you Mr. Bumper,’ he said and couldn’t help but laugh.
‘Sorry, I didn’t see you coming,’ I said.
‘I think you should add and have four eyes. Maybe that way you will see clearly,’ he said and rolled his eyes.
‘Let me help you up,’ I said and stretched my hand.
‘I was going to the hall but lost my way, can you show me the way please,’ I pleaded.
‘Hold my hand,’ he said.
‘I want to lead you so that you won’t bump into someone again. My mom said that blind people are led,’
Is this child serious, am not blind.
‘Am not blind, or are you trying to insult me?’
‘Let’s just go,’ he said impatiently.
‘Whatever,’ I mumbled.
I followed behind but he walked through a clear corridor.
‘Is this the way?’ I asked curiously since people weren’t passing through there.
‘My mom told me not to show myself there,’ he replied.
‘Ok, then I can just sit with you wherever you are,’ I suggested.
‘Am at the garden waiting for Melissa and Mira,’ he said and I followed him to the garden

The garden was beautiful with all kinds of flowers. They brought a magnificent scent and peaceful sensation.
We sat down to enjoy the calmness.
‘Did you come with your child?’ He asked.
‘No, why ask?’
‘He or she would have made a good company as we wait for the others,’ he said.
‘Am looking for my child,’ I found myself saying.
‘Did he get lost?’
‘Its a long boring story. Never mind,’ I said and he gave me ‘why don’t you tell me’ look.
‘Um…,’ he wanted to talk again but was interrupted.
‘Roy,’ someone called from behind and we all looked.
‘Aunty,’ he called happily while she just stared at me.
‘Who is he?’ She asked still staring at me like we have once met.
‘Mr bumper,’ he replied.
‘Is that his name?’
‘I don’t know his name all I know us that he bumps into people. Where is Melissa and Mira?’
‘They are coming,’ she replied.
‘Hi, am Martin, nice to meet you,’ I said and stretched my hand to greet her.
She had this look on her face like she had seen a ghost.
‘Hey, have we met before?’ I asked to be sure.
‘I don’t think so maybe am mistaking you with someone I know,’ she said. The two kids came and she excused herself. I had so many questions but no one to ask. It seems she knows me and looks scared when she saw me with Roy. Is she hiding something? What can that be?
I was still staring at her she she pulled someone towards a different direction. She something to her and she looked towards our direction.
