Doctor: you have to take heart at this point.

Me: what else again?? Has he died??
Doctor: no! It’s soo unfortunate that we have to
amputate his two legs.
Me: ampu..what?? God you are wicked! Why all these?
Doctor: you better thank God because he’s only
survivor of the accident.
Me: well, where is him now?
Doctor: he’s in emergency ward.

deposit one hundred and fifty thousand naira for the amputation and other treatments.

Doctor: you must look for the money as soon as possible. Failure to do so, may cause more harm to that legs.

father must not die.
Doctor: getting that money is the only option you have
Me: and you said my mother will not hear this, that’s
