*** “I can’t believe your stupid boyfrend denied you before his mother,…..” Angela’s best friend,

Tope asked pacing up and down her room,
“My sister, that was what happened oo,… His
mother insulted me to the extent that she called
me a beggar and dropped some money on the
table for me,….. Before dragging her son out of
the restaurant “Angela explained to her friend.
”I’m still surprised,… I can’t believe Richard is
from such a rich home and he never told you
about it,………. Seems you dont know his family
very well,….. They’re among the top three richest
family in this state,….. And i heard their mother
is very wicked and powerful,…… You cant stand
that woman’s anger oooo,…… You better start
running for your life,….because that mummy’s
boy cant stand for you when the heat is too
much.. ”
”You know i love Richard,…. I knew he was from
a rich home, but i never expected him to come
from that family,…….. And he never likes talking
about his family,…… ”
”Abeg forget your mumu love and stupid
boyfriend,….You better be careful.. … ..by the
way….. Have you counted the money in your
bag?, “Tope asked pointing to my handbag.
,”I didn’t bother counting the money jare…. Alot
was on my mind….. …. Pls help me count it “she
threw the handbag at her friend and la!d beside
her on the bed,…….
…”
”This is unbelievable,….. So this is how they
waste money unnecessarily,…….. “Tope said
counting the money.
”You better concentrate and count well,….. ”
:
Angela and Tope have been friends since they
moved from their mansion in Mariam Babagida
estate Asaba to a remote part of Asaba,….
They attended the same secondary (Asaba Girls
Grammar School) AGGS, Angela is very pretty and
tall with a nice shape,… She outstands her mates
in beauty,…. Her good heart has won her many
favours from people,…. Tope is also beautiful but
not as beautiful as Angela,….. She’s chubby and
average in height…. Her father is yoruba while
her mother is Ibo, she was born and brought up
in Asaba,… She’s currently doing her NCE in
Federal college of Education Asaba,.. Her parents
are not as poor as Angela’s, they live in a three
bedroom flat,…. Her father is a Civil Servant
while her mother runs a salon,….. She has never
supported Angela and Richard’ s relationship,…….
“Hmmmmmmm,… You have a hundred thousand
naira here!!! “she screamed after counting the
money.
I held my mouth in shock, my one year salary is
not up to that amount,…..
”babe, you’re rich,…. Oya come and give me my
share ”
“Share ni,…….. Look at your face…… I’ll quickly
write down what we need at home, i’ll use the
money and buy them,.. Then i’ll give some money
to my mother and father,…. ”
….. ”Wont they ask you where you got the
money from “Tope asked her friend with a
surprise look,……
”My mother will never ask,….. Only my father
will ask where i got the money from,……….. But
i’ll tell him i’ve been saving since i started work”
“Sharp girl,….. That’s good sha,…. Angela…….
Don’t you think you’re neglecting yourself,….. So
you’ll give everything to your family without
buying anything for yourself? ”
”I would’ve loved to buy something for myself,
but you know what we’re passing through in my
family,…. My father’s security job is not putting
food on the table,… I’m tired of my mother’s
nagging,. i want to put smiles on their faces…. ”
”By sacrificing your own happiness?,…. Look at
your hair,… Use little money out of it and make
your hair,…… I can beg mummy to reduce price
for you”
“Hair is not my problem now,…. We need to eat,.
I must buy chicken today,… I’ve missed it”
“See your throat,…. You like better thing eeehhh”
“Before nko, who no like better thing,…….. ”
The ringing tone of Angela’s phone halted their
discussion,…..
Richard was calling her, Tope forcefully snatched
the phone from her and switched it off.
”That boyfriend of yours needs to be taught a
lesson ”
”i’m even tired of listening to him,….. You can
keep the phone ”.
She la!d down on her friend’s bed to take a nap
before rushing to the market to buy foodstuffs
for her family……
