Map of A FRIENDLY SUPRISE When I was a first year I became friends with many people in my class. But one lady struck me to be different. i used to go for lunch with her and she would offer to pay for me most of the time bit U refused. One week to her birthday, she told me the date of her birthday. So as a friend I decided to prepare a surprise party for her. I sued to think that though she offered to pay for my bills she came from a poor family. I thought of this from the way she used to dress.I used to tell her that I would buy a television the next semester when I got my HELB money. After surprising her with the party, I was happy to have made a friend happy. Only to realise that she had never celebrated her birthday as her parents had passed away while she was three from a car accident. She was happy as I had boosted her esteem with the party as she was able to make many friends who came at the party. After two weeks, she brought me a computer and said she like using it and that It was a gift to me. I was so shocked but true to her words she gave me the computer that became my first big present. I learnt that a good deed is paid with another good deed. Read more.
