Over that week, it was something else.. Yvonne and sara was always together,they ba-rely talk to me,they made it hell for, is either they go out and come back home late,it was their daily routine.
I have to stay cool and behave myself, this time it was always me and tunde,we were always together than before. I completely forgot about sara and yvonne,the worst of it,sara would bring a guy home,sometimes they sleep over the night,until one day i decide to leave the house for good.
I have my dreams with me, one morning i intend to let tunde know what i was planning,I met tunde outside doing exercise.
Me : Tunde,how far nau?
Tunde : I dey o, we-tin dey happen?

Tunde : No worry your spirit my guy,I go surprise you
Me : Alright, if you say so.
(Tunde and I both agreed to rent the house)
the next day, tunde left the house,he went to the bank to get the money he promised. While i watched over the gate,within one hour he was back,he showed me 150k,I counted it and it was a wow to me.
Tunde and I was smiling at each other,he told me he borrowed 50k from his brother,but the 100k was for him,I went to get mine.. I gave him 85k, I handed all the money over to him, I told him to look for the house in one week,which he promised me to do so.. tunde left in search of the house,but throu-gh out that week tunde never returned.
Hope it’s not what am thinking?? I waited till the upper day he never showed up i was now week and was asking my self questions.
* Is tunde ok?
*have he been attacked my arm robbers
*or may he’s run away with my money
*i trusted tunde o
* Why will he choose to treat me like this?
Oh God help me
The week was hell to me,sara and yvonne choose to do anything they like and treat me as if am nothing, tunde on the other hand have runaway with my money..
I don’t even know if he is alive.
One morning i woke up very weak and sick, I can hear someone shouting in the sitting room,but I don’t know who it was.. Until the voice was coming closer.. It was yvonne, she was shouting approaching towards my room With sara. She pushed my door.
Yvonne : *with anger* Nick where is my money?
Me : *surprised* what money?
Yvonne : the one i kept un-der the rug in the sitting room,because you always clean the sitting room
Me : (stood up from my be-d) I’m not with your money,go and look for it or have ask the guys that sle-pt over here yesterday?
As i was about stepping one foot out,yvonne dragged my hand to my greatest surprise she sl@pped me and told me “WE SHALL SEE”
I couldn’t say anything that moment,it was only tears i noticed rolling down my eyes.
Oh Lord why is my life like this,I cried it out and then decide to leave the house with immediate effect,I don’t know where i was gonna go but i believe something great out there is waiting for me.
