She approached the table and ordered for 3
take-aways of rice. The cashier told us that it
was 3k. “Chai, wetin I go do oooooo?”. I smiled
and dipped my hand in my back pocket to remove my wallet.
I flipped through it and
counted the money. “Oops, the cash on me
isn’t enough”. I brought out my ATM card and
told the cashier that I wanted to use POS.
“What is POS?” The cashier asked.
” Point of sales machine” I replied.
The cashier replied “We don’t have that here. If
you want to use ATM, walk down to the 3rd
junction and branch inside, you would see an
ATM to use there”.
Betty was just smiling at me as she stood still
there looking at the drama between the cashier
She dipped her hand inside her purse
and paid the cashier. I looked at her and I was
I felt so embarrassed and don’t know

opened the door and we stood outside the
eatery for a little chat.

BETTY: ***smiling continued****
We hugged and I held her hand as we walked
toward the main road. I stopped a bike and told
the bike man to take betty to her destination.
She just stood still for about 10seconds smiling
before telling the bike man to go. I was
and I told her “don’t you like the bike or you want to take a taxi?”.
She smiled and reply
“not really, I don’t need a bike”.
