|Hope episode 15 – 16 by Pizarena: 8:21 pm On September 2, 2021|
At the end of the first stage in the quiz competition, Daniel Chisom was disqualified. As for Adura and Ayo, they went into a tiebreak to know whom will progress to the second stage.
. At first, Bayo didn’t expect her to have up to 6 points in the first stage not to mention scoring above Daniel. It was then he totally believed in her and really hoped she wins.
“9… 8…” the quiz master began the countdown. Tears flowed freely on Adura’s cheek but that didn’t stop the countdown as she would have wished. “3… 2… 1 and time up”.
“Do you have an answer?” the quiz master demanded from Adura.
“No sir. I don’t”, she replied to the disappointment of her classmates and class teacher. They didn’t expect that a one-time runner-up would be beaten by a JS 1 student.
“Okay then Ayomide Cole you have qualified for stage 2. Congratulations”.
Ayomide was pleased with what she just heard. On the other hand, she felt sad for Adura as she left the stage in tears. “Thank you sir”, she said at last.
Prediction right or wrong?*
The next stage began on an interesting note. All four contestants left answered the first 5 questions correctly. None wanted to loose to other.
. She’s becoming nervous just like Adura”, she added, her eyes fixed on the quiz master as he made to decide on Funmi’s response to the question asked.
The principal wasn’t so surprised that Ayomide Cole would progress to the final stage but he believed she can’t beat his daughter, Bidemi and Emmanuel.
“Do you think Ayo can beat Bidemi and Emmanuel to first position?” the principal asked the vice principal who was sitting beside him just to hear her view.
“I don’t know what I think anymore with what has happened here today”, the VP responded. “I mean who would have believed that Ayo would beat Funmi to this stage?”
“I would”, the principal said.
“Anyway, I believe Bidemi to be a true daughter of her father and she will make you proud sir”. In truth, the VP wanted Emmanuel to win and even believed so but she didn’t want to get on the bad side of the principal. Hence, she kept her thought to herself.
“Shall we begin contestants?” the quiz master demanded from the remaining contestants on stage.
“Yes sir”, the three of them chorused.
“Remember, you have just 30 seconds to answer a given question. So you need to be fast”, he advised. “And also the first to provide wrong answer to a question will be disqualified immediately”
They all nodded their heads.
“Now your question, Contestant two. The sum… “
The final stage began. The three contestants provided correct answers to the questions asked for fifteen minutes straight. Between this minutes, Bidemi was anxious, Ayomide was full of zeal and Emmanuel calm as water.
“Ayo cannot win this, look at how calm he is”, Bayo said pointing to Emmanuel. “I believe in Ayo but first position is beyond her reach with Emmanuel and Bidemi as her competitor”.
“Can’t you see? Ayo is also calm”, Bukky countered. “If anyone is going to loose now. It’s Bidemi. She’s nervous. I can smell it”
“You can smell when someone is nervous?” Bayo asked surprised by Bukky’s statement.
“It’s just a figure of speech”.
“Hehe! So you know figure of speech”.
“Well, let’s leave that aside”, Bayo changed the topic back to their main focus. “Bukky being nervous doesn’t mean her brain is affected. Her brain works like clock”, he argued. “She’s not Adura”.
“Okay, we shall see Bayo”, Bukky concluded. She couldn’t afford to miss any moment.
Mrs. Folarin and Mr. Dammy were also arguing on who will loose first.
“You and I both know Emmanuel can’t loose now”, Mrs. Folarin had said. “In the previous year’s quiz competition, Bidemi and Emmanuel had been the last two contestants but Emmanuel had won simply because she forgot to add square to her answer”.
“I know all about that”, Mr. Dammy agreed. “But this is different.
. You said it yourself that Ayo is good and I believe she will see this through”.
Await the next episode titled. “Wrong answer”
Who gave a wrong answer? A. Emmanuel. B. Ayomide. C. Bidemi
