Me: Haa thank you bro, am very grateful. I took quick glance at the result, I almost fainted when my eye fell on my overall scores, no wonder Dupe said I didn’t perform well in the exam that’s why I scored 152, That means am still going to waste another year at home, tear dropped off my eye, I couldn’t blame anybody rather than myself because I was reliance on Dupe’s answer which she couldn’t make it again.
Everyone at some point in their life undergoes failure. It is a part of our life, But what one need to do is keep their head high and move forward.

I dialed a number on my phone and put it to my ear, “Hello” I said to the other person at the end of the line (The address to her house has been sent to me the previous day, to locate the house is the next thing for me, although I’m a stranger in the city, I boarded a keke napep to Jabi and came down at Jabi upstairs) .
Tola: Hi dear where are you? .
Cnn: At Jabi upstair .
Tola: Ok wait for me am coming .
Cnn: Please don’t stay too long, I don’t feel comfortable standing alone along the road .
Tola: On my way already .
Cnn: Ok dear ***Hung up***
Few minutes later Tola walked up to me, she dressed in skimpy gown that barely left her tight, she was looking so charming and more beautiful than ever .
Cnn: ***I ran to her and embraced her into ma waiting arms, I lifted her up and shouted her name without caring we were in public place*** My love, if someone said I will set my eye on you in the coming five years I wouldn’t believe .
Tola: That’s how fate works, how are you doing? .
Cnn: Even if I’m sick before, now that I set my eye on you, my sickness has been healed .
Tola: Really? .
Cnn: Before nko, I miss you badly .
Tola: Same here, I miss you more .
Cnn: Are we going to remain standing here talking, let us find one cool place to talk .
Tola: Where do you want us to go? .
Cnn: Where do I know in this city .
Tola: Same as mine, I don’t know anywhere .
Cnn: What do we do now? .
Tola: Let go to my house then, big mum isn’t around, she went to Wuse .
Cnn: Do you think your house is safe? .
Tola: 101% assurance, she would not be back home any moment from now .
Cnn: If you say so, let go
***Two of us walked into Tola’s house*** .
****** FEW MINUTES LATER, BIG MUMMY’S SITTING ROOM, JABI ABUJA****** .
Cnn and I were seated beside each other, as we engaged in chatting happily, like one who just won huge amount from #Bet9ja .
Cnn: Am so happy to have you back my bae .
Tola: Same here with me, I miss you like Buhari miss his presidential seat .
Cnn: It has been destined that you and I will end up together, don’t you see how fate join us together, your daddy willingly sent you packing just because of me without knowing he was joining us together .
Tola: I couldn’t believe all this, the most funniest part of it all was the day Dad told me I’m relocation to Abuja, I thought he want to keep me far away from you, but what I failed to realized was he was doing me a favour by bring us back .
Cnn: ***In ortsa femi’s voice*** What God has Join together let no man put asunder .
Tola: When did you become a musician? .
Cnn: ***He poked her*** Its been a while dear, although you don’t know .
Tola: Local champion .
Cnn: Wife of local champion, local first lady better still .
Tola: Why don’t you sing for my daddy’s men when they were pursuing you? .
Cnn: You wanna kill me, singing for angry policemen is like wetting fire with fuel .
Tola: ***Laugh*** But am not happy with you I must say .
Cnn: Say to me my crime .
Tola: Do you want to kill my Dad, or you think you can have me without his blessing and full support? If you had killed him who will give you a wife to marry? It really got me angry when dad and Nike explained to me every bit of your action in the hospital, you left a big scar on his face .
Cnn: I know I’m bad person, but I did it because I don’t want you to marry a prisoner, you know if I didn’t escaped maybe I would have been in jail by now, or do you want to marry a prisoner? .
Tola: Never in my life should I marry a prisoner, but still yet my Daddy doesn’t deserve to be killed by his son inlaw, look at me you have a lot of works to do if you’re really serious about marrying me, you have to do something confusing to have my daddy’s forgiveness .
Cnn: May God help me, I will try all my best to gain daddy’s trust back .
Tola: Silly boy do you have his trust before .
Cnn: ***Laugh*** .
Tola: Don’t laugh yet, I know my Daddy very well .
Cnn: Nothing can separate both of us, leave me and your daddy alone, its man to man issue .
Tola: You this boy is d–n funny, Man to Man issue? .
Cnn: Yes because you’re mine forever .
Tola: You always ***Before I could finish my words, Cnn had moved closed to me, grabbed me by collar, he looked straight into my eye, his eye was filled with love and emotional, before we knew it,. We’ve started kissing, we are amidst of our kissing when the door to the sitting room suddenly threw open, and someone walked in .
Don’t let sinners take courage to think they will be favoured like the thief on the cross; for we see on the other side, they may be like the hardened one, and reproach death itself. We are gonna in big mess already .
WHO WALKED IN??? .
