If You Missed The Part 17, Read It Here
The next morning which was Saturday, we woke up very early in the morning to prepare breakfast and we did some exercise while I took my car out for driving lessons thereafter alongside with segun. He drove the car as we proceed to the training ground; he sat on the chair at the training ground while he watched me as I was driving all through the session. The instructor suggested that we should hit the street, I was so happy as i sat on the driver’s seat, my instructor sat beside me while segun sat behind me at the back seat as we toured the street and later returned to the training ground. “Onihaxy, you are good enough now, I wondered why you aren’t hitting the streets yet since it’s an automatic drive?” Segun said as I closed for the training. He drove the car again as we were going home and we branched at a bar not too far from my house. We located empty seats and sat down, I ordered for an energy drink while segun ordered for a legend stout.
SEGE: onihaxy, I don’t really think I can settle down in this Lagos.
ME: but why?
SEGE: the stress and the high cost of living. To even acquire land and build house is a problem, touts won’t let you have peace of mind.
ME: you are right sha, but in terms of job opportunity, I think it’s far better than Akure. One can easily get jobs here
SEGE: that is if you are a job seeker, to my type that is self-employed, I don’t need such opportunity.
SEGE: yes now, and special thanks to Nollywood industry for adding to the population of lagos on daily basis.
ME: nollywood films?, how?
SEGE: in their films, they would show a poor boy or girl from the village who was been taken to lagos by an uncle/Aunt. In the next scene, you would see ” three years later” beneath the screen and the same poor village boy/ girl is already living in a duplex and driving range rover sport.
ME: ******laughs****** you no well segun.
SEGE: abi now?, so why won’t lagos be over populated when the movie industry continued to tell us than you can’t make it until you get to lagos.
ME: hmmmmmmmmm. You are right sha.
SEGE: yeah, that reminds me, how is funmi?
ME: you mean my boss?
ME: she is fine. You remember I told you about the outing we had the last time?
SEGE: yeah. I think she likes you, you just have to thread carefully so as not to ruin everything.
SEGE: anything that has to do with relationship and romance in a corporate environment needed to be packaged carefully especially in the bank. And your own case is even delicate, you and your female boss.
ME: you are right segun. Even in my office, people had started gossiping about us.
SEGE: that you are dating her?
ME: no, they were saying I was related to her, some are saying I was doing eye service to get favours from her.
SEGE: hahahahahaha, office and gossips, highly inseparable. Just be careful, I don’t want you to loose Betty at all.
ME: hmmmmm, you don’t want me to loose betty?, and you are motivating me to hook funmilayo?
SEGE: off course, it’s certain that you can’t marry funmilayo now, she is far older than you and she has kids at tertiary institution. I’m sure you don’t want to be a step father to grown up kids.
ME: funny you.
SEGE: yes. So keep funmilayo for office favours and promotions, keep Betty for marriage and stay away from Adebimpe completely.
ME: hmmmm, you seemed to like this Betty, even without seeing her physically.
SEGE: onihaxy, that girl is a rare gem. It’s so hard to see a multi-millionaire daughter loving a poor dude like you with the whole of her heart; it only happened in the movies, I told you before now.
SEGE: yes onihaxy. If I was lucky to have that type of girl, I swear I would have built house and acquired many things through her and I would have gotten married to her since.
ME: hmmm, acquired house and other stuffs by scamming her abi?
SEGE: what do you expect?, when I’m not dull like you, Mr holy bishop.
ME: it’s not like that segun, I’m not just into obtaining things from women, it doesn’t bring respects at all.
SEGE: we are talking about money and you are talking about respect. To hell with respect
SEGE: don’t worry, I will speak with Betty on phone when we get home, I know she must have few rich girls as friends. You know the rich make friends with the rich
ME: what do you want to do with the girls?
SEGE: I will persuade her to hook me up with one of them na.
ME: ***laughs**** seriously, you aren’t serious segun. What about the ones you are dating presently?
SEGE: I will simply drop them for the new rich girl now, afterall, you dropped kemi and lolade for Betty.
ME: no oooo, I already broke up with them before I met Betty.
SEGUN: that’s a lie onihaxy, you met betty on baddo while you wer still dating lolade.
ME: na you sabi, that one aside. Segun, I needed to break contacts and communications with bimpe, but since henry and Betty are now involved, I just don’t know the way out.
SEGUN: don’t worry about that; just leave that to me to figure out.
Segun and I continued with our gist until about 6pm in the evening, we stood up and left the joint after I paid for the drinks. I drove the car home because segun was very high on bottles.
