CHAPTER 6 I was shocked, wat did i do to my oga to recieve diz kind of slap?
Oga: i told u not to spend more than five minutes but u spent over 30 mins , u must b very stupid and i can see dat u are not ready to learn in this shop.
I thought dat he did not mean it wen he told me dat i shud spend only five minutes with sophie.
Me: i am sorry sir it wont happen again.
Oga: keep ur sorry to ur self, i can’t train unserious pple, so i want u to leave diz shop diz moment.
I tried pleading but he did not give me any listening ear, dat was how i left d tailoring shop.
I went home sad, i didnot tell my parents dat i was dismissed from where i was learning work, i told dem dat i quit from learning tailoring. I stayed at home throughout d WAEC result was releaaed months later, i checked my result two weeks after it’s release, i was not suprise at my result, i knew dat i wud make distinction in all the subjects except for biology that was cancelled. Sophie congratulated me for my result, she also performed very well in her own result but according to her, her parents wants her to study business management abroad so dat she wud b able to manage her father’s importing and exporting business. Though i did not tell her d real reason y i stopped learning tailoring, i also told her dat i decided to quit it.
Sophie usually comes to my house to spend some quality time with us, my parents are fond of us and even calls her “our wife”. In one of her visit she told me dat i shud also pay her a visit so dat i can see her parents since i hav not met dem b4, i wanted to reject d invitation bcos i was afraid of wat her parents wud think of me, but i later reluctantly agreed to visit her.
It was on saturday, d day we both planned dat i wud meet her parents. I had washed and iron my cloths properly so as to look smart and neat as possible, i even spray my snr sista perfume.
I took bike to her house to prevent me frm sweating, when i got there, i called on phone to tell her dat i was in front of her gate, she told me to wait for her, after lyk 3 mins, d gate opened, she came out and gave me a hug, all d servants and maids were just staring at me lyk i don win Bet9ja.
We both chatted till we got her sitting room, her parents were sitted watching t.v, i greeted both of dem and they replied ,d father welcomed me well and offered me a seat while her mother was observing me suspiciously with her eyes as if she was ttrying to find a fault in me.
D father asked some questions abt me and my education while d mother was concerned abt my family status, though it was un easy answering her questions but i still told her d truth.
Her father said dat sophie has been saying a lot of good abt me and he has been determined to meet me. He also said dat he wud lyk to see my father on d next saturday, i looked at sophie who was sitting on d same couch with me, she was just smiling innocently.
I ate lunch with dem and spent sometym in sophie’s room , we played video games i was just admiring her beauty through out, sometimes our eyes wud just meet and we wud smile,, i was deeply in love with her.. it was time for me to go, i thanked her parents ,, d father handed me an envelop containing 5k, i rili thanked him, i cud see her mother looking at me suspiciously , i left her house by eight pm, everywhere was dark a little bit, sophie’s street is a bit far from d bustop so i had to trek to d bustop bfore i see bike or keke, after i trekked for a while, i reached a bushy path,,, dat was wen i saw some group of boys following me …………..
