I pray something terrible happens to that little girl… Be very certain you are leaving this house, it was this argument between two voice I could hardly recognize that wake me up from my sleep… I woke up from sleep with heavy headache and my skin was already turning red… I guess am having reaction over night, I decided to walk towards the path I heard argument from only to see my uncle… Rubbish man! I said to myself.
My uncle, Mr Abey is a trouble maker, he only comes to our house anytime there is trouble and his presence would only escalate the problem, if you are not careful, I was about to turn back when he sighted me and alas!
Hey!!! Come back here, where did you sleep all night? Am sure you have started sleeping with men old enough to be your father? Huh?!! you were sent out of the house and you are just coming back by this time? “useless man, am sure he has gone to drink paraga(mixed local gin) this early morning, look at his stupid mouth, he is even smelling, useless man” this was all that went through my mind before I answered his question. I slept in the cage behind the house sir, “What cage is that?
I stood there looking at him with my both eye rolling up and down… God! Why did you allow this useless man to even find his way to this house this early morning, am sure we will stay here all morning answering questions tag and we will never reach an apparent end, six years ago when I and my mum would run away from entering pastor daran’s car… It was this my useless uncle who will tell pastor daran to lift us anytime he meets us on the way to mother’s farm, knowing so well that mother is scared of us entering pastor daran’s car, and mother doesn’t like us to have to trek two hundred meter back to farm when pastor daran’s car will not stop when we tell him that we have reach our destination, if you are in a a hurry to get to a certain place the most unfortunate help you can receive from nature is to enter pastor daran’s car but this my uncle is always bringing this unfortunate help to mother and I anytime he comes to the village so am sure it an unfortunate help he has brought this morning… ButI don’t know how high the level of the unfortunate penalty I will end up with…
