That night I couldn’t sleep, my head was spinning, Is this how I’m going to become a father overnight, oh my father save me. Why didn’t I just drop her at the entrance of ikuku why inside, chaii I kept lamenting and lamenting till morning came.
She woke up in the morning and saw me sitting close to my reading table, my eyes red.
Are you okay, she asked and I told her I was fine.
Then why are your eyes red, didn’t you get enough sleep, she asked.
I’m fine, just a little bit tired, I said.
Then why don’t you come and rest a bit, she said standing up from the bed and walking close to me.
She led me by the hand and told me to lay on the bed and I did as she said.
She sat beside and place my head on her laps. She sang for me and soon I drifted off to wonderland.
A sweet aroma woke me up. I opened my eyes and immediately located where the aroma was coming from. There on the dining table, was nicely cooked jellof rice. I salivated immediately I caught sight of it, my tummy even made some sound in response to my action.
In a swift, I left the bed and landed on the dining chair. I saw a piece of paper close under a clean glass cup, I picked it up and it said ” Savvy my amore, by the time you will read this, I might reached home. Thank you so much for yesterday, I’m happy I have someone I can hold onto when in tough times. I prepared a little something for you,hope you like it. I love you, Nelly”
I smiled to myself, I don’t know but I felt happy.
I turned and looked at what she prepared and called small, This food that can carry me till the next day.
I took a spoon and dug into the food. It was very delicious, I took time in savouring the magnificent food. I looked at the lap of turkey and it stared back at me. without a second thought, grabbed it and dug my teeth into it, I dragged the flesh with enormous force, cut a large piece and chewed. One could think I was been starved a whole week.
I finished the meal and had another round of sleep on the dining.
By the time I woke up it was already evening, I got into the bathroom, took my bathe, wore something simple and went outside to receive the cool evening breeze.
I sat down on my chair in the varendah and brought out my phone to play game, that’s when I saw a message of credit alert. I didn’t open it at first, I kept thinking who might have credited my account, could it be Nelly’s father, no, I remembered I didn’t forward my account number to him.
Well to satisfy all curiousness, I opened the message and found out the my account was been credited with half a million. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I found another new message and it read “for everything you’ve done for us, by taking care of Nelly our daughter, take this token as a sign of sincere gratitude, Nelly’s mother.
I called the number immediately and someone picked it.
My son, came a voice I recognize as Nelly’s mother. how are you, she said.
I’m fine ma. ma I just saw the credited alert on my phone, Thank you so much ma, I’m very grateful, I said.
Don’t thank me, Thank God, she said. Your a very good young man, I know and believe that my daughter is in good hands,she added.
I’ll do my best to make sure she’s always happy ma,I assured.
Thank you once again, God bless you,she said before hanging up.
After the call, I felt Cold and odd presence, in a swift I turned and found Sylvanus precious standing close to my varendah.
