Aku knew this was his last chance to tell Miriam how he really felt. It was the last week of exams and he had to make his move fast! He didn’t care anymore of being humiliated, all he needed to do was get it out of his system.
His chance came when he spotted her walking home alone.
‘Miriam, can I please talk to you?’.
The words came out fast.
“I really, really like you and think you’re the nicest girl ever”.
And when the words ended, Aku fainted from pure nerves.
And that was how Aku became a man.
