After spending 10 hours in school, with a minimum of eight hours attending different classes, I was finally inside my dad’s car (an SUV, Toyota Highlander).
At last I will have a long time to eat and sleep without getting disturbed.
I didn’t bother taking off my clothes before I dug into my feast of hot Santana and ‘draw soup’.
I didn’t think twice before running into my room, locking the door behind it so as not to receive any disturbances from my amiable mother.
Finally, I missed my bed.
Feeling the soft cotton of my bed, I drifted into sleep immediately.
Not until something happened.
I felt something creeping on my leg.
It has happened again.
…. last time it was a cockroach, not again…
I sighed as I shook my leg expecting it to be a paper or anything else.
E shock me!
To my greatest surprise…. It was something I never expected.
THAT BIG LIZARD WITH A RED HEAD.
I nearly screamed as I jumped off the bed heading to the door.
I tried my best to open the door, so as to run away from the intruder.
But it just didn’t work.
I tried shooing it, but it didn’t move a morsel.
It was doing press up.
I was about moving, when it jumped on me clinging to my neck.
I woke up, sweating.
Thank God it was all a dream.
Not until I felt something creeping on my leg.
