FLASH BACK.
“Good day here” I heard a voice inside our compound calling for somebody’s attention as I was washing clothes at the backyard. I went on tracing the voice and sighted our landlord banging our door like his life depends on it. The the man is a lovely man, he even wishes Tolu & I to be his sin(impossical) cause the love is too much(yeah,its Tolu & I in the beginning, we met when I came for my registration as a fresher in EKSU{Ekiti State University},we were both freshers but he had complete his registration, seeing how stressful I am, he offer a hand to help. which I accept with smile…since then we’ve been friends and roommate)…. “Hello here” I heard him says again. “Good afternoon baba” I said loudly for him to hear me to avoid getting the door broken… “My son, how are you and your friend? the man asked. “we are fine sir” I answered and added. ” Baba, what brings you here in this sunny afternoon?, you should have sent for me”. “I don’t want to bother you my son, thats why I came here myself..its a news I’m even sad to give you” the man answered. “What is the news baba?” I asked with fear. “My daughter is coming back home from oversea and I don’t want her to logded in an hotel, I had no option than this place, so you will need to pack out in the next 7days” the man said with sobber face. “WHAT!” I exclaimed. The man just kept mute within 5mins. “I’m going now my son” the man said. “mtchw,you still deh call me son??…go find your son elsewhere…mtchw as you deh go just make sure say nah heaven you deh go straight” I thought inwardly as I was still in the shock of the man explosive bomb.
