‘Two weeks later, Nathaniel accompanied his brother to go check out his new apartment for he was so happy to learn that the apartment has been paid for by his one and only brother. When they got to the place, he couldn’t help it but smile at the wonder of what God is doing in his life. Where there is life, there is hope’ he said to himself and continued inspecting the place.
Mark: Hope you like this place.
Nathaniel: Brother, liking this place is an understatement oooo. I love the place very much.
Mark: it is small sha but it will do for you for a start.
Nathaniel: Small ke? It is more than I hope for sef. Look at the environment, there is water, there is light, what more do I need?
Mark: ‘You need to pack in’ he said smiling at him.
Nathaniel: Once I get home, that is what I will start doing immediately.
Mark: But there are some things you will need in this place.
Nathaniel: You mean kitchen stuff and what will make here look like a home?
Mark: Oh Yes! Because very soon, you will be getting married.
Nathaniel: Brother, let me make myself comfortable first before talking about settling down.
Mark: Of course I know that, I don’t just want you to forget that aspect.
Nathaniel: I haven’t forgotten anything; I just want to settle down first.
Mark: No problem, Ehen! About the job of a thing, I spoke to him about it.
Nathaniel: Really, and what did he say?
Mark: He said to make it possible, we would have to make some payment to someone who is in charge of it.
Nathaniel: Really? How much are we talking about here?
Mark: We are talking about two hundred thousand naira.
Nathaniel: Two what?
Mark: Hundred thousand naira.
Nathaniel: For what? That is just too much. Do you know what I will do if I have that kind of money?
Mark: What will you do?
Nathaniel: Errmmm, nothing brother but sincerely, that money is too much.
Mark: Because you don’t know how much he requested for initially but because he is someone that I know, I had to beg and he agreed you pay the money.
Nathaniel: How much was it?
Mark: Five hundred thousand naira.
Nathaniel: Five what?
Mark: Why are you shouting now?
Nathaniel: sorry brother but the money is just too much. Where is naija heading to?
Mark: My dear, I don’t know oooo. The masses are suffering and still government is not making any job available.
Nathaniel: But I don’t have that kind of money with me, what do I do now?
Mark: That should not be your problem; I will see what I can do,I told him to give me time to raise the money.
Nathaniel: Really brother; Thank you, If not for you I wonder where I will be right now.
Mark: No big deal. You like the apartment abi?
Nathaniel: It is more than okay.
Mark: ‘Good, Take this’ he brought out a bundle of cash from his suitcase he was carrying and handed it to him ‘that is three hundred thousand naira, use it and furnish this place.
Nathaniel: ‘Wow’ he collected the money as it was handed over to him with eyes wide open ‘ Thank you Brother, my God will replenish your pocket hundred folds, Thank you.
Mark: Your welcome. Use the money to furnish your house and make everything needed for anyone to be comfortable. Hope you use it judiciously.
Nathaniel: I will brother and thank you.
Mark: Anyway, I am leaving you here for I have somewhere I need to be in the next couple of hours, hope you don’t mind.
Nathaniel: No, I don’t. I need to sweep and clean up the place sef. You can go, dont worry about me.
Mark: ‘Take care then’ he said and left.
