I zoomed off to MK DONX hopefuly to start work.coz i strongly believe that i will pass the interview.i got to the company and met the same people i saw the othe day. Some were coming out smiling while some kept a straight face which shows that they didn’t qualify.
It finally got to my turn.i got in and sat down as the MD commanded.

ME:yes sir.(i said smiling).

ME:okay sir.when am i going to start.

ME:(hot tears from no were started dropping from my eyes.the MD saw it but didn’t say any word.i became frustrated.i nearly gave up at that moment.coz that job was my hope.i wanted to shame my so called mother that i can make it in life.but look at me now.hopeless and confused
ME:thank you sir. I said to him and left his office.i stood at the road looking left and right.were am i going to go from here.i decided to visit my uncle.who is very rich and working at one of the biggest company in town.although i knew my uncle is very stingy but i kept the feeling aside.let me go and see whether he will help me with work or money.atleast if he help me with money.i will use it to start a better business.i concluded.
On my way.i started feeling hungry.i brought out my wallet and open it.chai!i only have 150 naira with me.i took the hundred naira and bought a galla and one sachet of water.total of sixty naira.i gave them the hundred naira.i decided to put the wallet back inside my pocket.i looked up and i didn’t see the galla seller again.he ran away with my fourty naira balance.i search and looked for him.i didn’t see anything that looks like him.then i gave up and continue my journey to my uncle’s house.God go judge that guy wey carry my fourty naira change run.*i curse under my breath*i ate the galla like a hungry lion.till i consumed all of them.
30 minutes later.i got to my uncle’s duplex.i knocked and his gate man open the gate for me.not without some questions.
I went inside his house and found out that my uncle wasn’t around.his wife asked me to wait for him that he will soon be back.she asked me whether i have eaten anything.i sincerely answered her NO.minutes later.she brought some food for me.rice and some chicken.before i could spell my mother’s name.i have consumed the food and chilled it down with some cold juice.wow!life is good if you have money.i forgot my sorrow instantly.look at how my uncle’s wife is shining because of money.my uncle’s wife wey no fine before.now look at what money has done to her.she is now looking fine.i must make money o.whether good or bad.she saw me staring at her. and she smiled and said.
