It was around 4pm when I got a beep from Biola
Biola: whats up baby….how has your day been?
Me:On a lowkey jare….been home since morning
Biola:so, what have you been doing at home?
Me: Nothing jare..preparing for tomorrow’s work
Biola: Are you sure? Are you alone
Me: Ahn..ahn, don’t you trust me? Forget about the past now baby
Biola: okay ooo
Me: so, how far? What is the outcome of the discussion?
Biola: Still the same thing ooo
Me: still the same thing as in?
Biola: Dad said he is trying to protect me that what is the tendency that what happened will never happen again. He said he cant trust you with his daughter again
Me: That is serious…so, what was grandma’s response?
Biola: It was serious argument and for the first time in a long time popsy said he wont listen to her on this issue
Me:is it up to that?
Biola: I was surprise too even mumsy was, we had to start begging him again..All of us
Me: And he didn’t shift ground too?
Biola: Iro..he didn’t ooo…..
Me: So, what do we do now? Who do we talk to again?
Biola: Grandma has taken her decision, she has fixed a date for our introduction and she said it will happen in 6weeks time in our house
Me: And you think that will be possible?
Biola: Definitely….Grandma was very angry and you know she’s stubborn too. Dad got that character from him, we are on our way to see our pastor now sef
Me: You and who?
Biola: Me, Mumsy and Grandma..Grandma said he want to see him and talk to him, tell him about her decision and to talk to my dad too
Me: That is very good..that is a nice idea because I know the pastor will let him understand the consequences of not listening to his own parent too
Biola: Abi, I just pray all will be well…
Me: All will be well dear, so where will you be going from there?
Biola: If not what I want to go and pick at Ajao Estate, I would have love to come straight forward because my mind is not at peace knowing that my credentials are there, what if someone breaks into the house?
Me: Yes..that is true sha, just don’t stay long and don’t let it be night before you come back
Biola: Definitely…prepare dinner before I come oo
Me: dinner ke?
Biola: Yes now……..
Me: okay, what do you want to eat?
Me: see your mouth like Amala, okay, it will be ready before you come back jhoor
Biola:see you later dear
I stop chatting with Biola and was praying for positive feedback from where they went to. I was so sure their pastor should be able to talk to her dad. It was around 7pm, I started preparing what we are going to eat, I finished cooking around past 8. I called Biola but she didn’t pick, I thought maybe she was busy or inside commercial bus that she didn’t want to pick.
I called again by 9pm but she wasn’t picking, I wasn’t comfortable with her not picking my call, I was still trying I got a computer response that the number was switched off. Up until 10pm, her number was not going, I didn’t even know where to go and look for her because I don’t know the outcome of their visit to the pastor, if they all decided to go back home or if she would be at Ajao Estate maybe they left the pastor’s place late. I was thinking of it until slept off in the sitting room.
