Bint was explaining her troubling experience with her Social Studies teacher to her sisters, when their mother suddenly entered the room after overhearing the story outside.
After praising Bint for sharing her story, she advised all her daughters to be mindful of not pushing their teachers too far.
While she was speaking, Omar, her eldest child and only son, arrived with exciting news: he had received admission to study Law at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria.
Ummi promised them all a big celebration once their father returned home. Omar also mentioned that his father had promised to buy him a new smartphone for his admission.
While they waited for their father to return, they all gathered outside, sipping on Zobo and listening to Ummi’s stories about her own admission experience, as well as how Omar’s upcoming studies would be a life-changing opportunity for him.
Ummi began her story by describing a particular incident that occurred at her screening venue involving a frustrated student named Salma Mohammed and a young lecturer.
Not knowing that the young man at the screening was the screening officer, Salma made harsh remarks about lecturers due to the screening delay.
The other students were taken aback when the young man eventually entered the office, and Salma was left feeling embarrassed.
Later on, Ummi went to the department to obtain her matriculation number, where the HOD seemingly made inappropriate advances towards her, causing Ummi to become angry.
When Ummi returned home, her husband made mention of their quite neighbor and the unpredictable nature of human behavior, which reminded Ummi of her own experience in the HOD’s office.
Her husband found the incident amusing and revealed that the HOD was his friend who had helped him secure Ummi’s admission.
Upon learning that her husband was friends with the HOD, Ummi’s anger and embarrassment dissipated.
Omar then requested to hear the story about the “quiet neighbor,” and Ummi narrated.
The tale was about a couple who had been trying to conceive a child for a long time and ultimately decided to seek the assistance of a native doctor.
Following their visit, they were blessed with a son whom they named Talle. Unfortunately, Talle’s mother passed away shortly after his birth, and he was referred to as “the quiet one” due to his reserved nature.
Talle worked as a driver for the local government, but after losing both of his parents, he started spending more money, arousing suspicion.
The District Head, Hakimi, eventually invited Talle to explain the source of his newfound wealth. During their conversation, the police arrived, requesting Talle’s presence as he was involved in a kidnapping for ransom scheme with Zaki.
Talle was taken into police custody and never seen again in the Lafayette community.
Ummi concluded Talle’s story by advising her children, especially Omar, not to place their trust in anyone.

The story of Salma continued as she completed her registration with the 100 Level coordinator, Dr. Dabo, after her screening.
Despite Dr. Dabo’s reputation for being a strict lecturer, he attempted to ask Salma out upon seeing her. Salma rejected his advances and insulted him, causing Dr. Dabo to feel remorseful.
Following her registration, Salma proceeded to complete her hostel registration at Queen Amina Hall.
Initially, Salma was not fond of her roommates, Tomiwa, Ngozi, and Ada, but she eventually grew to like them, particularly Tomiwa.
However, their friendship was nearly destroyed when Salma encountered two men, Habib and Labaran, in a black Benz on her way back to school from home.
Salma accepted their offer for a ride to school, which led to a disagreement with her roommates.
The following evening, Tomiwa received a call from Habib, who revealed that Salma had lied to him by impersonating Tomiwa and providing her phone number instead of her own.
Despite feeling uneasy about the situation, Tomiwa played along with Salma’s ruse and went out with Habib and his driver, Labaran, who was later revealed to be a politician.
Although Habib initially confronted Tomiwa for Salma’s deceit, they were able to resolve the issue, and Tomiwa even received gifts from Habib, which made Salma jealous.
As a result, Salma insulted her roommates, causing a temporary rift in their relationship that was quickly resolved.
Despite Salma’s desperate attempts to find love, she ultimately ended up dating Labaran, who turned out to be Habib’s driver, much to her disappointment.
Despite their personal drama, the girls continued to excel academically until a tragic event occurred during their final exams.

Ummi continued her story, explaining that the consequence of Salma’s cheating was that she was given an EMAL form to sign.
She had been caught with expo, or exam malpractice material, that was passed to her by Kolawole Abdul, who had written the answers down for her.
Though Kolawole had not been caught by the invigilator, he signed the form as a witness. This was because he had helped Salma cheat, even if he had not been caught in the act himself.
Ummi went on to say that cheating was not the best way to succeed in life and that honesty and hard work were key.
She advised her children to always strive to do their best and not resort to dishonest means to achieve their goals.

In the beginning, Salma attempted to avoid the penalty by seeking help from Habib, who held a high position as the Speaker.
However, Habib was only familiar with Dr. Dabo, whom Salma had previously insulted during her registration process.
In the end, Salma resorted to sleeping with Habib in exchange for a significant sum of money to bribe the Chairman of the Malpractice Committee.
She encountered Dr. Muhammed Kabir, who pretended to be the Committee Chairman and defrauded her of N100,000, a portion of the money she received from Habib.
On the day of the hearing, Salma discovered that Dr. Kabir had deceived her, and in her frustration, she mistakenly implicated Kolawole.
As a result, both Salma and Kolawole were expelled.

Muhammed Kabir was not a doctor nor a member of the EXEC, but rather a laboratory technologist at the university who had a gambling problem.
In the meantime, Salma had confided in Labaran about being duped by Kabir. She pleaded for justice, so Labaran hired Zaki to go after Kabir.
Habib was hesitant about involving Zaki again, as he had previously sent him to kidnap a young boy, and Zaki and Talle had almost incriminated him with their failed mission.
While gambling, Kabir won N300,000, but as he was leaving, a thug was sent after him, and Zaki followed suit.
The thug attacked Kabir, and Zaki intervened, taking all of Kabir’s money and giving it to Labaran.
However, Labaran refused to give the money back to Habib for personal reasons.
When Omar asked if Habib was ever punished, Ummi replied that Salma didn’t mention it, but justice always prevails even after death, which reminded Ummi of Salma’s father’s death.
It happened while she was still in school, and Ngozi and Tomiwa had argued about why Muslims bury their dead faster than Christians.
At one point, Teemah teased Omar about chasing girls with his phone, which reminded Ummi of Salim’s unpleasant experience with chatting.

Salim, who later entered into a serious relationship with Salma, had a previous experience with online dating. After acquiring a new Samsung phone, he began chatting with a beautiful girl on social media.
Salim asked his friend Lawal to accompany him to meet her, but Lawal declined, and Salim went alone.
Unfortunately, the girl did not look like her picture, and Salim returned home disappointed.
As Lawal consoled him, Salim recounted another dangerous incident he had with online dating when a prostitute attempted to steal his car.
Salim eventually decided to avoid such risky adventures and later got engaged to Salma.
Meanwhile, Teemah teased Omar about his phone being used to chase girls, and Ummi suggested that they should inform their dad about Omar’s admission once he returned home. So, they anxiously waited for his return.
