The wet and clazlyish ground kept holding back My new leather sandal
which Mama just bought,As i frowned and murmured,trying to lift my
tiny legs,i almost cursed the
rains,staring at my now messy,leather sandal,
the sandal i had used to ‘buga’ in school just this week.
Subomi whistled “mama and sister flo will show you pepper today”
and i turned back,his own sandal was in his hand,he clunged to his nylon
bag that contained his book,i felt stupid realising that i should
have held my leather sandal in my hands,i heard Subomi laugh with
his frog-like voice,the clay sticking to the bottom of my sandals begged to be
throwned at him, i snapped at him and gave him a ‘you will see’ look…..
