Me:no Miranda not the way you take it. I created the group for my protection when my mum died. Please believe me. I never dreamt of coming to Nigeria one day
Miranda:but you should have at least told me. We kept no secrets
Me:you have to believe me. It was for our own good. Telling you all these was also risking your life in the long run. Please forgive me and try to forget all of these.
Miranda:why are you begging me? You have a lot of girls out there
Me:because I cherish our friendship. I love you. Please
Miranda: (she started crying and ran to hug me) I’m sorry for being like that
Me:its okay. Have you forgiven me?
Miranda:of course yes.(she wiped her tears smiled at me, I also smiled back). So we will be staying in this big house. The house is d–n big.we are gonna stay in one room
We laughed and went to the last room on the right. There was a lot of room in the long passage. We arranged our things. The room was bigger than three hostels in the university. We did everything that was supposed to be done. We went to the kitchen, we saw different provisions and foodstuffs but we insisted we prepare noodles. After eating, we went to bed together. Then my phone rang:
Me:hello,who is this?
Caller: its me melissa, this is my number just call it if you need help in school like I said
Melissa:I know we won’t be that close like we were in Europe. I understand and I won’t get jealous. This is Nigeria not Europe so don’t feel guilty. I am only called when needed in Nigeria but things will change in Europe right?
Me:yeah of course. Thanks for understanding
Melissa:its okay. Goodnight.
Me:goodnight (she hung up)
As I was about dropping my phone it rang again
Me:hey dad. How are you?
Dad:am fine and you?
Me:u am doing perfectly alright
Dad:please go on skype I want to talk to you face to face I miss seeing your face. I want to see it again.
Me:ohhhh. That’s so sweet dad. Okay give me just 5mins I will get back to you on Skype.(I hung up)
Miranda: that was your dad?
Me:yes it was
Miranda:hmmmm. I really want to see him
Me:don’t worry you will see him
Miranda:but how? Is he coming to Nigeria?
Me:no of course.(I brought my laptop in plugged a modem and entered Skype immediately. It seemed he has been waiting for me)
Dad:wow. You no longer look like before and I am responsible I shouldn’t have sent you to Nigeria.
Me:dad don’t blame yourself I believe everything happened for a reason. By the way i am beginning to like my stay here.
Dad:hope life is not difficult over there
Me:nope dad everything’s just fine
Dad:okay. I wish I could touch you right now. Ever since your mum died I felt guilty
She warned me at first not to go into politics but I insisted and now she is dead and I am regretting it now. Because of that my daughter is not with me. There is nothing in political positions except for the money. I just confirmed that. A these was as a result of my greed.
Me:oh dad stop. You want to make me cry. Its okay.
