Vincent who was a little bigger than him approached and the verification was positive since both bullies were individually thinking of two different kinds of beating – just like had Sam and his Mother (see Fossungu, 2013a: 39-40). The guy left immediately. Vincent also walked away like a real ngong (frightened and useless) dog with its tail between its hind legs. It was a lot easier than Momany had expected. He was then thinking quietly, not about africanscience methods that some there present would be saying he might obviously have used in beating up the big Vincent bully, but instead about the name an aunty had given him.
Momany didn’t quite know then but vowed to speedily learn to speak English so that he could confront this girl to know why she suddenly changed her attitude towards him. This could explain in part why his favourite sibling more often caught him looking at her books, the other part having to do with his intense desire to go to school. Here then was Momany not only in school but actually feeling the person of another person he was feeling so much for – Miss Mandengue. He could then not remember ever sitting on the lap of a woman, let alone one as attractive and understanding as Miss Mandengue.
It was a lot easier than Momany had expected. He was then thinking quietly, not about africanscience methods that some there present would be saying he might obviously have used in beating up the big Vincent bully, but instead about the name an aunty had given him. Mbinchang, his aunty who babysat him had explained to him (in Yoke where she continued using the name even as everyone was then calling him Mr. English), literally means Mr. Trouble (in Bangwa). So I am a troublesome child so to speak?
