Ekene got to Ifeoma’s house and explained everything to her but she only ended up blaming herself saying that if she had known this will happen, she would have aborted Uchenna but Ekene told her not to blame herself because his son’s life worth more than the money his master will settle him with.
Ifeoma suggested that Ekene should go and meet Franklin since he is the person who has been helping them which also mean he is the only person that can make Peter settle him. Ekene thought about it and agreed to go to Franklin’s shop the next day.
The next day Ekene woke up early and prepared to meet with Franklin.
Ekene got to Franklin’s shop but he was told by his sales girl that he is yet to come to the shop. Ekene decided to wait for him instead of him going back home.
Ekene has been waiting for Franklin for the past three hours but Franklin hasn’t arrived yet so Ekene decided to go home that day and return the next but when he was about standing up, Franklin entered into the shop and he was very happy to see him.
Franklin told Ekene to sit before asking him why he had come to see him that early. Ekene explained everything to him and he promised Ekene that Peter is going to settle him whether he likes it or not.
Later that day, Franklin went to pay Peter a surprised visit. When he got to Peter’s house, he met his absence but he met Kate who told him that Peter will be back very soon and Franklin decided to wait since he was not in s hurry to leave.
Peter came home thirty minutes later and was very surprise to see his master in his house.
Peter: Good evening sir!
Franklin: Evening Peter
Peter: Sir this one that you came to visit me this late, hope am save?
Franklin: You are but I came here to discuss something with you
Peter: What could that be important that can’t wait till tomorrow?
Franklin: Sit down first before I tell you.
Peter: Okay let me take my seat
Franklin: Your boy Ekene came to me earlier today telling me that you had refused to settle him and why is that?
Peter: Sir you see that boy has a baby and he has also been stealing from me to take care of the baby. If that was not enough, he even lied with your name
Franklin: How sure are you that he Lied with my name?
Peter: I know he lied with it because there is no way you could have given him money to pay for his baby’s mama hospital bill
Franklin: You see that’s where you are wrong because I was the one that gave him the money and for the past five years, I have been the one taking care of the baby.
Peter: Sir are you trying to tell me that you knew about Ekene’s baby mama and you didn’t tell me
Franklin: Peter the baby mama is not what we are discussing here. You accused Ekene of stealing that’s why you didn’t want to settle him but since you now know that he didn’t steal from you, I will advice you to do the right thing by settling him
Peter: Even if he didn’t steal from me I still won’t settle him for having a baby mama
Franklin: Oh! I now see you don’t want to settle that boy but I will make you settle him directly or indirectly
Peter: What do you mean?
Franklin: Don’t worry because you will soon find out
Franklin left Peter’s house leaving Peter to wonder what he meant with “Don’t worry you will soon find out”. Thirty minutes later, a knock was heard and Peter went to open it only for him to see Franklin with some uniform men
Franklin: Officers! Officers! Officers! This is the person I just told you stole my money when serving with me fifteen years ago so arrest him.
The officers arrested Peter and took him to the police station.
