Episode 6
It was Bode that woke me up the following morning.
He told me his dad’s burial had been fixed for the next
weekend, and there’s no money.
He told me how his dad’s family members started blaming his
mum for not giving them adequate information about his dad’s
illness before the old man eventually passed away.
All these stories made me love the woman more.
At last, he decided to go. I saw him off to the door, and he suddenly
turned back, hugged me and gave me a peck.
I came back to the room, and started thinking of how I could help
Bode and his mum concerning d burial.
D only source I had was my dad, but I wasn’t sure he would even
send money again this month ending as I was having a feeling he
sent d last one because of my birthday.
But then, i wouldn’t be able to wait till the end of the month, to know
if he would send money or not, as the burial was fixed for 29th
April.
So, then what can I do oooo?.
“Oh Yes!..I have an idea.I will call my dad that I need money. But
what if he asked what I need it for, what will I say?..
I will tell him somebody is sick n that the doctor said he needs
surgery, but there’s no money, so, I wish I could render any little
assistance within my reach…Can u be of help sir?”.
that was exactly what I did.
He said “Who is that sick person?”.
“It’s one of the corpers sir”. I lied.
“Ok. Since it’s something that has to do with life, I will try and send
any amount i can between now n tomorrow. My regards to him.
We’ll remember him in our prayers”.
“Thank you dad. Love you sir.” I hung up.
Then, my conscience pricked me gently “U just told a lie!.. How
disappointed would your dad be if he found out!.”
I felt bad, but I quickly consoled myself by a thought “what
could I have done?. How would he know?.Who will tell him?..he
can’t know!.”
Almost immediately was relieved.
I expected an alert from the bank throughout that day, to no
avail, the following day too, no alert, but on the third day, I received
an alert of K50,000.
Wow!. I quickly called Bode after withdrawing d money, to come
and meet me at home after school hours, by then, it was just 2
days to the burial,27th April.
When he got to my room, I said “how much have u been able to
get now for the burial?.”
He said nothing..that his mum’s sister who promised to send an
amount of money last week failed, but just received a message
from her that morning that she would see what she can do by
tomorrow.
I opened my bag and gave him the K50,000 my dad sent.
He opened his mouth and couldn’t shut it.
He held me very tightly, kissed me….and before we both knew
it..we did it!.
