happily prepared a night out for the interns. They were pleased. They spread the word about what I was planning for them and on that day at work, the office was swarmed with interns visiting us in a bid for invitations.

By the day’s end, my night out for four became one for fifteen.
That evening, Tintin and Rahina tagged along. The evening was lively and basically fun. By eleven, we were all on our way back to our various destinations. I went home alone. I also slept like a drunken baby.
Sometime later, I got a long call from Uzi. She wanted to keep me up to date on how she was doing. After we had parted ways, she went back to school, they went into a strike and her boyfriend proposed to her and she was on her way to the states to go and get married to him (I still wonder what is wrong with getting married in Nigeria). I was curious as to why I wasn’t invited, but she was telling me about it. Then she told me how she deeply cherished the time we shared together and how we had a special bond since she carried a piece of me for two months.

I was startled and stunned. Technically she confessed to me that she aborted my kid! I drilled her as to why she didn’t tell me but she simply said I wasn’t the type of guy she would want to spend the rest of her life with. In summary, I was too predictable, stable, unadventurous and my lack of exposure was going to slow me down in life. She said it in a loving tone, but it hurt like colonoscopy without anaesthetics. After a while, she hung up and left me stunned. I was supposed to be getting ready to be a dad!

I sat back, relaxed and thought about everything. Was I really predictable and unexposed? How could I fix that? A lot of ideas came to mind, but I decided to take a trip. So I applied for a study leave and surprisingly, it was approved. So now I am back in school for another masters where I can get a little more exposure; the United Kingdom.
