I was seated in the sitting room watching programme on television, my phone suddenly rang, I looked at the phone and let out a faint smile, the caller was my sister, I punched on the green key and placed it to my left ear without second thought .

But how did he know that something vital is about to happened is still mastery to me and I’ll ask him, anyway I Thank God for my life and promised myself to compensate him Handsomely” I took ny phone and rang him but his number wasn’t going through, I barely dropped the phone on the table when it started ringing, I checked the screen for the caller and it happened to be my lawyer “Barrister Adebayo” I picked without wasting time .
