My tongue murdered my student – class teacher
Teacher confesses how he murdered his own student with his tongue
So I was going through my wall and I came across this story.
It was so heart touching and educating that’s why I thought it wise to share with my esteemed readers.
The story is all about an event that took place between a teacher and his students.
Enough of the explanations lets head over to the story
I Murdered My Own Student
I was in class that fateful Friday afternoon teaching my students when she raised her hand to ask a question.
I permitted her and she asked a rather too simple question that I supposed she should know the answer.
I had already covered that topic the previous week. “Will you sit down there! With your Ugly face! Fool!” was the only answer I gave her.
The whole class bursted into laughter and she looked embarrassed.
I went on with my lesson but felt somewhat guilty over what I had said. I finished my class and left. On Sunday, I went to a mosque/ Church. The preacher was talking about the tongue and its power.
He spoke about how you could bring others down by what you say.
I remembered what happened on Friday and became guilty. I swore I was going to apologize to her on Monday when I got to the class.
On Monday afternoon, I went to the class but I didn’t see her. I asked after her from her coursemates but they didn’t seem to know who I was talking about.
I then said I was looking for the person I insulted on Friday.
“Oh, that’s Joy Sir!
She is not in class today” they answered.
Who is her friend? I asked.
“Aisha” they chorused.
But Aisha was not in the class either.
Suddenly, a girl with Hijab walked in.
“That’s Aisha Sir” my students informed me.
Where is your friend? I asked her. “Which one?” She replied without looking at my face. Joy! I said.
The reply shocked me! She is in the mortuary Sir.
Mortuary? Doing what there? I asked
“She died on Friday Sir” Aisha replied.
How come? I later found out that after my class on Friday, Joy was hit by a fast moving vehicle.
She was crossing the road absentmindedly probably because of what I said.
“Her burial is on Saturday and you are invited Sir” Aisha continued.
As I stood trying to overcome the shock, Aisha said within tears, “you killed my friend Sir”.
She was right! I should be the murderer!
Some girls in the class were already crying! I didn’t know what to say, whether to apologize to Joy’s friend or Joy’s ghost.
I submitted my resignation letter the next day.
Dear Lecturers and Teachers, please stop insulting your student.
