Clarion: did you liked this phone?
Me: don’t entice me with that!

Me: hold your phone!
As I was trying to resist this, my phone ring………
Me: hello ma!
Mum: your brother is sick, we’ve to him to hospital. so we were asked to deposit some amount before they could treat him. We’ve deposited the money your father want to send to you.
Me: what’s wrong with him?
Mum: malaria. I don’t have card bye.
I called her back since I have almost #1600 on my
mum: Temilade I’m sorry my call card was exausted.
Me: how is he feeling now?
Mum: he is feeling better.
Me: what about my dad?
Mum: he went to his friend to borrow money.
Me: I thought you have paid his bill.
Mum: we deposited twenty thousand out of thirty thousand because he’s receiving blood.
Me: oh my God! You mean we still need twenty thousand now?
Mum: yes don’t worry your dad will rally round. Plead to
your teachers that you will pay your fees.
Me: leave that for now ma! I will call you later.
Clarion: what happened?
Me: my brother was hospitalised, so the money
meant for me was used for his treatment. Painfully! They still need some cash. Please can you borrow me?
Clarion: what are we friends for. Let go my hostel
Me: thanks! I will pay it back as soon as my brother is ok.
We headed to clarion hostel where she gave me twelve thousand naira. I appreciated her for her kindness. I left
to find a bus.
Me: hello mummy!
Mum: how are you my dear?
Me: am fine. How is Abiodun feelings now?
Me: what about dad!
Mum: he has never return.
Me: I will join you in the next 40mins.
Mum: what are you coming for. If your brother wake
up now, no dime to buy him food.
So how will you cope about TF(transport fare)? Besides we’ve deposited the money
Me: don’t worry ma. I will take care of that. I will join
you soon bye.
I boarded a bus where I was seventh passengers albeit I
was the second lady.
After five minutes, we embarked on the journey.
when we reach a particular location along the road I
discovered that the engine steamed down…………
Co-passenger: what’s wrong?
Driver: I don’t know yet!
Co-passenger: I beg check am wella you don they
Me: please fix this motor in time my brother is dying and this weather is getting cloudy.
2nd lady: I beg wetin be this drivers problem panu?
Then go they collect money, then no go maintain wetin they fetch money for them.
Driver: wetin be your problem I know say in go get
fault? You better mind your businesses!
Co-passenger: I beg I won go market ko? So make I no

Driver: abokina inasua!
Aboki: I get am madness for here so make you no do
2nd lady: don’t mind them na their way be that.
Driver: you know me before kuanu abi which kind

Me: please you don’t need all this arguement let him concentrate.
2nd lady: abeg come open this your yeye door I won
Driver:(open the door) ngbanu come down.
She came down and went to bush as if she wanted to
urinate. Few minutes later she came out with two guys
Am doomed(I lamented)! What can I do now?
I dripped my hand inside my bag so as to hide my money……………..surprisingly, I heard a gbola(heavy slap) on my face. It’s was the Driver.
Driver: you are a theif! You wanted to hide our money!
2nd lady: all of you come down we don come to
collect our money! If you try any rubish I go scatter
Robber: one after the other! Drop your money,
phones, chains, rings and watches straight away.
Aboki: Lahilah ilah lahu, wayo Allah! Kai! Wana barawo bansa ni. I don entered ko, chaii my cow money (wailing)………..
They collected all our money and phones. I pity this
Hausa guy, they collected three hundred thousand from him and shot his legs while dragging with them!
Humanbeing are wicked!
After they successfully carted away our belongings, we tried to stop bus to rush the guy to hospital as he was bleeding seriouslly but no one stop. Police later came to our aid to rescue him.
After they left, I walked away from the scene to look
for a lift. Just about 10min later, a Jeep stopped by…….
Driver: hello lady!
Me: good afternoon sir!
Driver: where are you going me: I’m going to al-ameen hospital sir.
Driver: which of al-ameen?
Driver: come in (opened the door)
Driver: are you going for treatment?
Me: my brother was hospitalised.
Driver: what’s his nature of ailment?
Me: severe malaria.
Driver: am sorry! Less I forget I’m Chief Abiodun
Me: am Temmy
Chief: Temilade or Temitope?
Chief: that’s nice name. So what are you doing in that
Me: I was robbed on my way back from campus.
Chief: am sorry! How did it happened?
Me: I ignorantly entered their bus.
Chief: hope they did not harm you?
Me: at all sir, but they collected all I have even money meant for my brother hospital bill and my phone.
Chief: Only God knows where this world is heading to.
How much is the said money?
Chief: (he brought out a parcel of one thousand note) take this to take care of your brother.
Me: thank you so much sir may God replenish your
Chief: amen, I will drop you in that junction so take
bike from there.
Me: alright sir!
Chief: (parked) here is my card you are free to call
Me: yes sir. I will call you immediately I buy another
Chief: wait! Have this to get another phone bye. He
ignited the engine and left. I can’t believe such human being still exist because when I counted the money he gave me, it was twenty five thousand without asking me out.
Temmy you must ta tan(get hold of him) for this man(a thought came
to my mind). Noooo! He’s much older than you
(another thought). Is age
matter in love(thinking)?
Stop this daydream he’s yet to propose to you (another thought) that’s how my thought was playing on my intelligence. I later stopped a bike to take me to the hospital……
When I got there, I asked the receptionist about which
ward my brother is. He directed me to ward 8,
Me: ko ko ko(knocking)!
Mum: come in.
Me: afternoon ma!
Mum: crying! Your brother is dying.
Me: what happened again?
Mum: he need another blood!
Me: stop crying he will be ok.
Mum: we need to pay the balance.
Me: relax I will be back mum.
I left for doctor’s office.
Doctor: come in
Me: am miss Temilade the sister to the boy in ward 8.
Doctor: you see! I have told your mother to pay so
that we can treat that boy but she just sat down,
Me: have came to pay for it (frown my face).
Doctor: I’m sorry for speaking in that manner!
Me: don’t worry!
Doctor: you may go to cashier to pay for his bill.
I left the doctor office to deposit the money, I heard a
voice shouting Help! Help!! Help!!! From my brother
That’s my mother voice what could have happened???
I rushed down there.
