“You want to know who you are?” Mama; my elderly friend who watched over my boys echoed my question

“Yes”

“Well, I can take you to a pastor, he may be able to tell you who you are”

“I know who you are, but it‟s best you discovered your identity yourself…”

“How sir?” I asked the pastor

“Prayer…”

“Ha! Prayer… Prayer is not easy”

“What makes prayer hard is when you refuse to see that prayer is a conversation with God. You make prayer a task, rather than a way of life. That‟s why you feel it is hard. Why don‟t you find a quiet place in your
home and speak to him?”

The Pastor had said to me, but I did not value that advice of his, so I decided to go through another route.

The route of focusing on becoming a better person all by myself.

I stopped attending the youth church so as to avoid Bro Femi. I focused on completing my studies.

With all the cash flowing into my account, living a comfortable life was not
a hassle.

********************
I knew I needed some air, I was tired of Promise. I thought marriage to Promise would be promising but it was anything but that. It was therefore with a heart of gratitude that I embraced Promise‟s suggestion that I travel
abroad for a year course at a prestigious fashion school in France…

My business was already growing, and I had competent workers who could handle things in my absence, so there was no reason why I should not go…

“How would you cope in my absence?” I asked pretending to be unhappy about her suggestion

“I will be fine… I want you to improve yourself. My dream is to see you
become a better man” Promise had said

“Thanks love”

I couldn‟t leave the country without seeing Leni… I therefore sent her a
message, for the first time in a long while.

“Hi Leni, I would love to see you and the kids, I will be travelling to France for a year program. Please give me the satisfaction of seeing my sons, please” My heart yearned to see Roland and Greg

********************
When I got the text, I was tempted to send him the address, but my resolve was strong. I wanted to stay as far as I could stay from F.D.

“F.D, so good to hear from you, I am sorry I can‟t grant you your request, I
will send you pictures of the boys. It‟s best we maintain the distance between us; I wouldn‟t want to disrupt the good life you have with Promise.

I believe you have a kid already… May God keep him/her. Thanks for the money you spend monthly, goes a long way. I wish you a safe journey”

As I typed the text, I couldn‟t help the tears that flowed. I missed F.D no doubt. I missed the only relative I had…

My convocation was in a few months, how I wished F.D was around to see
me graduate despite having 3 sons, but life had to move on in the direction
I had chosen…

********************
“Leni, so what‟s the plan now that you are out of school” Mr. Teju asked.

Over the two years of living in his house, we had grown close in a brother and sister way. I saw him as an uncle. He was very proud of me for going back to school despite all I had been through. I had updated him about my life, but not deeply. I told him an edited version of my life story.

“Uncle Teju, I am hoping to find a good job, that way I can get my own place, and stop being a burden to you”

“Good thought, but I am not complaining about you staying in my place.
You should get a job truly, but not because you need to get out of the house…” He said laughing.

“Uncle Teju, thank you, but someday I will still need to move out. Someday, you and your family may plan to relocate to the country”
“I have no family coming back to the country, if I relocate, I will be staying in the main house, and that doesn‟t stop you from staying in the mini flat”

He replied

I paused to ruminate on his last statement. For years, I had tried to dig into Uncle Teju‟s personal life, but he never let me. Whenever, I asked about his family, he would simply say “Everyone is fine”

Therefore, his statement about no one relocating with him, if he were to
relocate was mind bugging

“Uncle Teju… Are you married?” I decided to cut the chase.

To be continued…
