After he conclude his statement, joke entered during the process, and she asked me what I was doing in such strange forest and where are my parents..
Me : hmmm! It’s about an ultimate search to igbo irumole, we went there in search of the egg of life under the sponsorship of a foreign based company, and if we could get the egg back to them, they will reward us with 20 million naira, we were actually nine that start the search, but before we could get to the egg, six among us died due to monster attack..
Joke : hmm!! Egg of life..
Me : yes..
Joke dad : egg of life is very powerful, anyone who has it will be wealthy and powerful..
Me : wow!
Joke dad : and did you get the egg?
Me : yes
Joke dad : where is the egg now?
Me : probably with kola my friend, yes am sure it’s with kola…
We discussed for about 30 more minutes then I stood up and went inside, I sat on the bed trying to recall what really happened, but each time I tried that, the only response I get is an headache, I was busy starring at the birds flying all about ,when joke entered.
We discussed some irrelevant issue for about 30 more minutes, joke is a sweet girl she is fun to be with, and she has a good ascent, only God knows where she learnt that.
