She woke me around 4am and as i stood up I felt as if I was tied on my feet with 16 9” sandcrete blocks on each leg. I beckoned on her to be going home and I slept back. I woke up around 8.30am feeling relieved a bit but drained. I quickly prepared for office and I went there. I met the other staff doing morning devotion. After the devotion, I called on Mercy to get me breakfast and to buy a tin of milk. I checked my phone and saw 17 missed calls, 3 missed Skype calls from Titilayo and 22 Whatsapp notifications. I had to dial Titilayo’s number
Titilayo: happy birthday my dear Michael. But I’m angry at you
Me: what happened?
Titilayo: ever since you resumed in that church, you never had time for me again. Even to call me it will be war…………or have I gotten a replacement?
Me: replacement ke? When I don’t want to “fi acid taba”
Titilayo: well I believe you a bit. But I want to be assured that nobody is space – booking over there.
Titilayo: Birthday boy, so how are we doing your birthday?
Me: I am not feeling fine presently. I feel weak.
Titilayo: ok. But hope those girls haven’t milked you sha?
ME: emi ke? No lady dey milk me here
Titilayo: Ok. But dear, I will be going to Jos tomorrow
Me: emi n sele nibe (what’s happening there?)
Titilayo: do you know Gimbiya; my bestie in school is having her wedding this Saturday
Me: ok ooo. Bring potatoes and carrots for me.
Titilayo: bring ego (money)
We both laughed. After ending the call, I received a call from someone.
