Doughlas: y….ee…ss, yes yes, Mr. Benson…I saw him talking with Oga landlord, only God knows what are discussing. I quickly sighted him from afar backing my direction. I quickly ran through a bent corner into the compound, if not he would have seen me. I don’t want that useless man to know where I’m living jare

Segun: so…??? What is he sees you, is it bad for your lecturer to know where you stay

James: Ask em ooo

Douglas: (scoffs) hargh, that one…wooo…noo, I can’t ooo. What if I do any bad thing in school now, they will not have any problem finding me if they know my house. And apart from that, I told him that I live in my personal house, you know na…how we use to form big boy in school. I just want him to know that me sef…I dey there….so if he sees me here now, he might ask me what I’m doing in this environment, and that useless Oga landlord will not let me land before he will spit everything to him.

Kingsley: (Furrowed his brow) So????

Bola: Don’t you get my point, let’s get married immediately in between that break…so that when he comes back…he would have no choice but stop the marriage between him and your mother

Bola: What??

Kingsley: You know that I can’t possibly get all the materials for your bride price in a month…and whereas. Your dad must be there when I pay it…

Bola: (Sighs disappointedly) yea..you are right…I didn’t think about that earlier

Kingsley: But there is still a way

Bola: Which way

Kingsley: Kidnapping him of course

Bola: (Frowns) noo…haa Kingsley…wont that be too much…I don’t think I want to be part of this oo (she folded her arms, and turns her face away from him)

Kingsley: (smiles and caress her cheek) Babe….i promise you..we will do a clean job..trust me..your dad will be fine. In fact he won’t have any scratch, okay
