I was about coming down at oshodi when my phone began to ring, I checked on the caller and it was betty. Amidst the noises at oshodi I picked and strained my ear for the conversation
ME: hello dear
BETTY: hi honey. How are you?
ME: I’m fine,
BETTY: where are you now?
ME: just getting to oshodi.
BETTY: ok dear, thanks so much for today.
ME: don’t mention dear
BETTY: you know I was so amazed today.
ME: amazed as how?, why?
BETTY: you know, despite Aunty Bimpe’s rude and annoying attitudes towards you, you still risk your life helping her and saving her daughter.
ME: that’s life my dear, you don’t pay evil with evil.
BETTY: onihaxy, you don’t get it, I’m talking about someone who doesn’t want you to get a job with the family company and someone who bad-mouthed you saying you were a criminal and armed robber?, someone who so much hated you with passion
ME: I understand dear. But its still not good to pay evil with evil,
BETTY: seriously honey, you amazed me today, I love you more.
ME: I love you too honey.
BETTY: or have you guys officially reconciled?
ME: as how?
BETTY: never mind. So how is tomorrow going to look like?, hope you have fully prepared for the job test?
BETTY: ok dear,
ME: how is my daniella?
BETTY: your daniella? Well she is fine and recovering.
ME: hmmm, why did you emphasised what I said?.
BETTY: when you said “your daniella” if her papa catch you, you go explain **laughs**
ME: ****e be like say this girl dey take style dey suspect me ooo*** you are funny. You know I’m already part of the family now, daniella’s Aunt is my wife to be, definitely its our daniella.
BETTY: **laughs*** you are always funny onihaxy
ME: hmmmm. Help me to thank your brother, he gave me T.fare
BeTTY: T.fare?, when?, but I was with you in the hospital throughout and also followed you to the car?
ME: bimpe gave me and said it was from your brother.
BeTTY: ok, maybe they planned it behind me sha. Its good though, its a sign of appreciation.
ME: smile, bimpe even gave me something sef.
BETTY: ***voice changed** really?, hmmmmmmmmmm.
ME: hmmmm what?
BETTY: nothing, but as two strong enemies suddenly became close lately, it amazed me.
ME: ***who say make I talk sef*** na you know ooo.
BETTY: so how much did she give you?
ME: ***silent for a while** not money, she stopped at a store and bought provisions and blood tonic for me.
BETTY: ok, that’s cool
ME: is that the hospital where she works?
BETTY: yes, why do you ask?
ME: I noticed he was so close to all the nurses and the doctor trusted her with his office. Anyways, is she back to the hospital?
BeTTY: yeah, about 25 minutes ago.
ME: ok dear, my regards to her and henry.
BETTY: alright. You will be coming over when daniella is discharged right?
BETTY: ok dear, talk to you later.
ME: ok dear bye.
I went straight to the boutique to get a fine shoe and a nice suit jacket with a tie and went back to mushin to prepare ahead for my interview the next day.
