HELP COMES FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES

It was very close to our final exams, WAEC and JAMB. Some students were preparing for WAEC while very few were preparing for both. Every one was studying very hard.
'Grrring!' it was  the sound of the school bell alerting every one for break. My friend and I quickly went out to the canteen before the crowd get there. After getting the bread and fried fish, we went behind the canteen to eat. As soon as we sat down, we heard the sound of someone crying. We quickly followed the sound and saw our classmate, Chizoba.

"Excel, Wake up" that was my mum's voice. I jumped out of be bed instantly, it was at that moment that I remembered  we were visiting the water park. I quickly rushed into the bathroom and took a quick bath. I wore my T- shirt and a pair of  jeans. I later realized that others were not ready so I decided to watch Ben Ten to wait for them.
After a while, they were all ready and we left our hotel room . We took the elevator to the ground floor where we had breakfast. I ate sandwich with tea while my brother had corn flakes and bread. After breakfast, we started the journey to the water park. As soon as we stepped outside, we were welcome to an intense heat and the sun was scorching hot. It was so hot that you can fry an egg on the bonet of a car. My dad quickly called a taxi to get away from the heat. Inside the taxi was the opposite, it was so cold and relieving.
On our way, we saw lots of breath taking places like the Twin Tower Hotel and Dubai Mall. We also saw a ferry …

They got dressed up in security clothes and entered a blue van. Kachi, the group brainiac quickly hacked into a system and they went past the terminal gate.

Men had their hoes on their shoulders while the women placed their baskets neatly on their heads which contained the crop seeds for planting. it was  planting time so they had lots of work to do at the farm.
