“what?, what’s the reason for that?. Why will the police want to search my room?” i asked desperately.

“they just want to search all the rooms in the lodge. According to them it’s the procedure. You are not the only person, so you have to come as fast as you can or else they might break into your room when it gets to your turn” he explained patiently.

“fine i’ll be there” i murmured half-heartedly, breathing deeply.

It really took me about two hours to make up my mind on returning to the lodge, because i was so scared that the police might find something in my room. A lipstick, lock of hair anything incriminating. I feared.
Though I was so sure that i wiped my room clean before travelling, but they were experts and i was scared something could be found somehow.

However I finally returned to my lodge very late in the afternoon with the hope that my room has been broken into. But on the contrary it was as i left it {still locked}.

I quickly met the hostel president with questions in my heart and Immediately he saw me he smiled, offering his hand for a handshake.
“it’s very fine you showed up today. All the rooms that are yet to be searched will be searched tomorrow. Some students travelled like you did which is very bad and as a result the cops decided to search the rooms of available students today while the locked ones will be searched tomorrow whether the owners return or not” he explained, settling my curiousity.

I returned to my room a bit relieved and satisfied, quickly cleaned up everything in it one more time, washing the bedsheet Nmeka laid on over and over. Infact i made sure my room was very much in order before resting that day.
My room was so clean that the three policemen who searched it early the next day commented on it.

“seems like you are the cleanest student in this lodge. Your room is so clean” one of them said to me as he tossed around my properties, without suspecting a thing. I smiled nervously.

Unknown to them the room they were searching was the main crime scene and they left without finding anything, leaving me a bit relaxed.

“What next?” i asked myself as i watched them leave.
