I really love this line, "I was dead with fear." It's short, jarring, and very emotive.
I didn't know they lock schools with security guards, and they won't let students in if they are late.

Imagine reading this story all over from the begining agin after getting to chapter 49 cos of how interesting it is. Please keep updating some of us are dying of suspense.
This chapter made me feel for you character, dear author. I wanted a change in my story readings, so I decided to look at something different, a tale from Nigeria ...  unique and a taste of Africa I need to see ! 😀
Gosh, these adults don't have a heart! Wonder if the tables will be turned when the kids get older and they become  the elderly. Will the kids they treated as dirt help them? 😐

It's so heartbreaking that in some places, like in Nneogo's case, missing school is worse then abuse. It really makes me understand how elsewhere we take things (school, clean water, well paying jobs ect.) for granted.
