It totally didn’t  come to me as a Surprise, while we were chatting I had already noticed she was was enjoying my company.

“Am really sorry I said, you know I just came back today, am very tired”

I didn’t leave until I had cracked up some jokes for her.

I arrived home about 1 hour after I got a call from my Mum, Michael was the first person I saw, the expression on his face indicated my Mum had kept my arrival a secret; He was Surprised

We Shook hands like old time friends, the collision of our palms produced a very loud sound, that also left a little pain sensation.

Chinaza came out of her room, she must have heard us, we hugged

“I wonder why they were giving me this royal recognition, I had left home for school only about 1 month and 3 weeks precisely.”

My mum stood from afar, smiling. Totally thrilled by the love her kids had for one for one another.
One Small happy family
“Are you guys going to keep standing there or you’re going to come over to the table for Dinner?”She asked.

We went over to the table, had Dinner.
” Chinaza was eagerly trying to keep me Update of recent happenings in house and neighborhood”

Jeff, do you know Kate that lives across the street? she asked.

Yes, what’s up with her?

She got impregnated.
Really? , I was only trying to give her the reaction she needed, but I wasn’t really interested in the Conversation.

“Well you should also be careful, you know you’re becoming a big Girl now and guys have their eyes all over you, I said, with a facial expression that portrayed seriousness ”

I can’t do that she said, I was relieved coz the truth is she was fast becoming very Attractive.

I later called Sandra and Amarachi and informed them of my Safe journey.

Only Sandra seemed very happy
Amarachi’s Countenance was almost indifferent, I guess that’s not part of the Benefits for Friends with benefits. lol

I woke up really weak, took my bath,ate,dressed up and was awaiting the Arrival of my Uncles.

They eventually showed up, I greeted them in the traditional way, They were really happy to eventually see me.

We sat at the Sitting room, just me, my Mum and my uncles.

Mazi Obiora, who was the oldest of them all, Started.
“The reason for this meeting isn’t far fetched, you know my brother(my Dad) passed away and left his plot of land behind and it has been abandoned for 3 years now, So we came to seek your permission to Cultivate on it in the mean time.”.

He leaned back to the Cushion after making their intentions known.

Looked like the Idea seemed pleasant to my Mum, like she was Glad, the Issue wasn’t a Big one after all.

She was about giving her Consent when I Said
” Its not Gonna Happen
The Statement was unexpected, all eyes from my four uncles and my Mum turned to my direction.

“Its not gonna happen I said again”

Not this way at least.
We’ll have to produce a written agreement, where we can all Sign, in the presence of a Lawyer.

“Big mistakes always originate from Simple ones, I have seen many people make mistakes Similar to this and we wouldnt be the Victims, not today, never!”

This isn’t the Age of Verbal Agreement.

They come to you asking for simple Favours as this, they start cultivating, with time they forget the fact that you did them a favour, they see it as their right! They Stop being thankful, their Kids also start cultivating, Before you know it.
There’s a Switch in Inheritance

My Mum seemed to like the idea and from the look on my Uncles face, I could tell it didn’t land Softly

My Mum bought my Suggestion, though it didn’t really seem like a Suggestion.

I was the Man of the House anyway.

Well, they had no Choice, the family had decided.
they later left to get the documents ready.

I went back to my Room, I met Chinaza there, she was Operating my Phone. Damn! There was really some stuff i didn’t want disclosed.

I was welcomed with Questions
“Who is this” she asked pointing the phone to my face.

oh that’s my Wife I replied. it was a Pic of Sandra
“And This?” Showing me another image this time around.

that’s my Concubine,(A pic of Amarachi) I wasn’t smiling all through, She was laughing.

She had probably expected me to be Untruthful.
Since it was an Android phone, I collected the phone, long pressed the home Screen, saw the recent Apps, she had Gone though my Messages from A-Z,
through my Contacts too.

And who said Ladies weren’t the best Detectives? Its Inborn

She wasn’t smart enough to cover her tracks. Truth is, I had once or twice envisioned Sandra as the Mother of my kids, so to a Degree I was being Sincere.

Jeff, Get her pregnant, I love Babies. she said with a Big Grin.

You love Babies? She nodded in reply

Why don’t you meet Kate for Coaching on how to Make one?

She laughed and said No!

It was a Saturday, I planned to be traveling the Following day, Sunday, to meet up with Monday Lectures.
So if Anything was to happen with Linda, it had to be today.

WATCH OUT FOR PART 10 TOMORROW
