[story] Astray In Love

Episode 2

When i got home my mum welcomed me, she

asked me if i have informed my twin brother

and i said yes. I am Taiwo while my twin

brother is Kenny. We not too identical and

that’s why i don’t normally do things together

despite the fact that we came to this world

with the same placenta. My dad on the other

hand wasn’t on my side, he wasn’t even the

one that signed my form when i purchased it.

All these things happened because he choose

not to value is own children, i persuaded my

elder brother to do the signing aspect for me.

When i told my dad about my plans, he did not

alter a single word, he just look at me and

continue watching is television. I left him with

the determination that i will go and come back

and he will be surprise by my progress.

That night i place a call to one of my friend, is

name is bode, we went to the same secondary

school, bode did not have the intension of

going to high institution right from our

secondary just because he knew he is not that

good academically. He has made up is mind to

go and learn bricklayer as soon as he finishes

with his final examination (WAEC). While the

phone is still ringing the thought of getting a

positive answer ran through my mind.

Me: Phone still Ringing

Bode: Hello

Me: Guy how far now

Bode: Bobo I’m fine ooo

Me: How is your side

Bode: Not too bad.. We’re pushing it little by


Me: Let just keep thanking God for the gift of

Bode: Yeap! Sure!! Sure!!! The tin don work?

Me: Yes! Am shortlisted among the successful


Bode: Guy congratulation ooo… At least if u

come back i will be looking for troubles

especially those omo onile (Area Boys) that use

to disturb us at site.

Me: Leave me alone! That’s not my problem

Bode: Then what’s your problem, u suppose to

be happy by now.

Me: We are asked to report back to Abeokuta

next tomorrow with some required items and

we will be leaving for Kaduna that same day.

But my main problem is that i did not have

enough money to get all those things we were

asked to bring.

Bode: That’s a big problem ooo

Me: Am telling u

Bode: So what’s the next thing now

Me: I don’t know if i can follow you to site

tomorrow so that i will work as a labourer, at

least i will use the money to buy some of

those items

Bode: That’s a good idea brother! I will tell my

boss about it as soon as we dropped now. I’m

very sure he would allow you

Me: Thanks so much ( In a soft voice)

Bode: You welcome! So how did u intend

getting the rest of the money

Me: I have called my elder brother and my

elder sister but no positive response. My mum

said she will also look for means by tomorrow


Bode: Ok! I will come along with the 4,000

Naira am having too. I will give it to you

tomorrow at site

Me: Thanks so much, am very very grateful

Bode: That’s why we are friends

Me: Thanks so much

Bode: No problem brother Good night!

Me: Good night, see you tomorrow

Bode: Alright…. Hang Up….

I was very happy at that moment. Bode is

indeed a good friend, i thought to myself.
