Episode 17.

“Aunty Ayo! Aunty Ayo, a man said I should give you this box” one of Adenike’s sales girl said handing a wrapped parcel to Ayo who was outside gisting with her dad. She looked at the parcel surprised.
“Is today your birthday?” the girl asked.

“No oo! Please where is the man that gave you this?”

” Immediately he gave me the parcel, he stopped a bike.”

“Just like that? He didn’t tell you his name.”

“No. I didn’t ask”
“Alright you can go”
“Check what is in the box. No wait! Let me pray first.” Bro Kola collected the parcel and prayed on it before handing it to his daughter. Ayo scrutinized the parcel then removed the gift wrap. “Who could the man be” she thought.

“Open the box let’s see what it is omo mi”

She opened and found a written paper and a key. She read out loud: “I have heard so many wonderful things about you. The car is just a token of my appreciation. God used you in my life. Thank you. Note that I paid someone to drive the car to your house because I have been very busy. We will meet someday. Take care.”

“Yay! I am speechless. She ran outside and saw the car. Bro Kola came outside with his wife and they saw the car. They went round the car, touching it. She opened it and sat in the drive seat.
“I don’t know how to drive”

“You will learn it oo” Adenike said.

“I don’t know how to thank you Father for the numerous blessings. Even when I don’t know how to drive, you blessed me with a car. What you do for me Lord, no one can do it.”

The Oluwafikayo celebrated. Ayo went to her mum’s supermarket and asked the sale girls to pick whatever they want and she paid. Later in the day, she went shopping for her parents.

On Sunday, bro Kola drove the brand new car to the church and pastor Ezekiel dedicated it. When they returned home from church, Ayo gifted the car to his father.
“Take it daddy. It’s now yours.”
Ayo wasn’t happy she hasn’t gotten a job. It has been her utmost desire to use her certificate to work in one of the top notch organization in Ekiti State. Now, it’s as if her hope was being dashed.

“We will call you” was what she was always told and she had waited endlessly.

Today, she wasn’t going for any interview because she hasn’t gotten any one to attend. She was just going to any eatery to treat herself to a bowl of ice cream. She stood before the mirror checking out herself when her phone beeped. It was a message. One of the organization she submitted her application and had even written their test wanted her to come for oral interview. She told her mum she was going for another interview.
“May God go with you”she told her.
She rushed out of the house to the bus stop.

“I am impressed with your performance.” the manager told her

“Thank you sir.”
“Among the seventeen of you that sat for the test, you performed best.”

“Oh thank you sir”
“As you can see, a lot of applicants are interested in this job but I like you and that is why I want to give you this opportunity.”

“Thank you sir. I am grateful.”

“I will give you this job on one condition Miss Ayomide”

“Let me hear the condition sir.”

“Miss Ayomide, if you want me to employ, you will have to give me 30% of your salary monthly for as long as you work here.”

“How much is the salary sir?”
He told her.

” By the time you agree with my demands, you can ask some of the staff here. It’s my style and they’re grateful to me for even employing them. Here is my number” he said pushing a complimentary card to Ayo.

“There’s no problem about it. It’s a deal” Ayo told him. “I don’t want to stay at home anymore.”

“Are you sure of this Miss?”

“Is this not want you want sir” she replied.

“Alright! Resume tomorrow as the account of this company.”

“Thank you sir”

“As time goes on, you will get to know about the organization better.”

Ayo rushed home and broke the news to her parents leaving the 30% bargain out of it. She didn’t want her parents to discourage her. She wasn’t ready to stay home another day.
Easter was around the corner and Ayo was thinking of what to do in the house of God. That Saturday morning, she woke early rushed to church for cleaning. She and some other members have been assigned to clean the church. Even if I name wasn’t mentioned, Ayo would still found cleaning the church. She had long observed that some members do Dodge washing the toilet. Many times, the toilet had been neglected so she took it as her responsibility to keep the toilet clean.

Taking a stroll round the church, Ayo discovered that the drum set was not just bad but very old. The clock was too and needed replacement. Some of the plastic were broken. She decided to call an interior decorator who decorated the altar. The rug on the altar was removed and replaced with tiles. By Easter Sunday, the church had a new look – new drum set, a big clock and some plastic chairs. She also decorated the children church and bought a big television to enable the children watch Christian stories. Ayo told pastor Ezekiel she wants to remain anonymous.
