I was in my office on tuesday afternoon, piling up the parcel I was about to deliver that day when I got a customised message on my phone. ” You have been invited for test and interview on friday and saturday at DOLPHIN CONSULTING, at minna, niger state, come along with your original documents, recent passports, an attestation letter from your last place of work and a copy of your C.V.
Interview comes up on saturday for successful applicants from friday’s test. Call 080***** for further enquiries”

I was happy and joyous, I began to say it within myself that “atlast, I’m porting to the realm of 120k per month.”, I began to soliloquies on how I would save up to buy a car, how I would save up to buy a land and how I would be planning to settle down even without getting the job yet.
While I was rejoicing within me. My phone rang and it was tosin.

ME: hi padi mi
TOSIN: hi onihaxy,
ME: how are you?
TOSIN: I’m fine. I just heard that some people were invited for test and interview, are u among the people invited?
ME: yes, I just got the message not quite long, I was about to call you sef.
TOSIN: that’s cool. Just prepare well and read hard. I will do all it takes to make sure you get job. Infact, I’m assuring you that you would be employed.
ME: ok pal, thanks so much. how does the test questions looked like? And what are the areas I should practice on?.
TOSIN: we will talk about that later on whatsapp.
ME: ok.

I couldn’t hide my happiness even without getting the job yet. I was so happy throughout that day. Even at work, my colleague observed it that something is really happening to me.

I didn’t bother to make any background check on the so called company. All my mind was just on the 120k salary.

I stopped at segun’s house after the work to break the news of my interview message to him. He was so happy about it and he helped me with few interview tips from his interview experiences.

On Wednesday, I made an enquires on how much it would cost me to get to niger state and return to akure.
I was told I would need like 15,000 minus transportation because I would get to abuja first before getting to niger state. I checked everything on me and all I had was 5,000. I went to meet segun for assistance and he also helped me with 5k because he was broke at that moment.

The problem now is how to get the remaining 5k.
I called tosin to inform him about my financial constraint and he told me that he just sent the last 65k on him to his parents. He told me to find a means of getting the money to come down there and he assured me that he would make sure he helped me in getting the job. I then remembered I have a friend in abuja named samson.

The first and the last time I visited abuja was during my 400level at the university when samson’s sister was getting married. Samson was my neighbour and also a friend then so I attended the wedding.

I tried dialling Samson’s number but the number was not available. I couldn’t reach samson through phone but I could still remember the road to his family house in abuja where we lodged during his sister’s wedding 4 years ago.

I converse with segun about how my trip will look like as it is my first time visiting niger state and also I don’t have sufficient money. He told me to leave akure on thursday and board a bus to abuja and then to niger state from abuja. And after the test, I should return to abuja and trace my friend I told him about and get some money from him.

And to be on the safer side, he said he will find a means of getting money and send to me latest on saturday incase I couldn’t get any help in abuja.

I shook hands with him and hugged him. Segun is really a brother from another mother.
