Must Read: Inseparable - Season 1 - Episode 1
It was a Saturday, the Sun shone brightly on Etyle City and the wind blew softly making the day unbearably hot for those working directly under the sun and crowded offices but cool for those under shades. The City was silent as it used to be by mid day, only few cars and pedestrians were seen on the road.
Amarachi paid the cab driver as she alighted and offloaded her luggage beside a storey building. She brought out her phone and made a call to her friend.
In less than a minute, her Friend Ini walked out of the gate of the storey building.
” Ohhhh” Ini screamed as she rushed to give Amarachi a hug. The embrace lasted for almost a minute after which Ini helped her friend with the luggage and led her into her apartment. They chatted happily as they walked into the house.
Kolawuyi Amarachi Toyin who had just finished her youth corps service had come in search of a job in Etyle City and planned to live with her Friend Ini until she gets a job and become able to support herself and stay on her own.
Amarachi had been friends with Ini from her primary school days, they attended the same primary and secondary school and were known to be best of friends, they always worked, played and shared everything together. They were both twenty three and also read the same course in the university. Only that Ini had gained admission into the university before Amarachi and had graduated a year before her.
Ini had no problem getting a job in the City, her Dad was a retired commissioner, so she got a job immediately she finished her youth service. She made contact with Amarachi to come apply for a vacant position in the same firm where she worked.
“I’m so tired, the stress in this City is too much” , Amarachi said as Ini walked her into a room in the apartment.
“Sorry dear, you need to rest but after you take a shower and eat, go take a shower and come to the living room when you are done” Ini said, showing her the bathroom. “I’ll go prepare something for you to eat now.”
After some minutes of waiting without Amarachi showing up in the living room, Ini walked to her room to find her fast asleep clothed in a towel only.
“Hmmm, she must be very tired” Ini thought to herself and walked out of the room.
Shouts of joy erupted from the football viewing centre as the referee blew the final whistle.
Arsenal Fc had just won their first European Champions League title, it had been a tough match.
They played against FC Barcelona, a spanish club who were known to have won the title several times. Barcelona played hard but were unable to get the ball into the net, the match had proceeded to the extra thirty minutes. At the die minutes of the game, defender Puyol had mistakenly sent the ball pass his team goalie through a disastrous header actually meant to keep the ball out out of the box.
” Up Gunners!!!” Bode hailed as he walked out of the centre with his friend Frank.
” Na Luck una use win jor” Frank replied him in pidgin English.
“Luck or no luck, we are champions of the season”
“See you, come next season you guys would be trashed out like you are always trashed”
“Hahahaha, haters keep hating, we are the champions”
Frank and Bode were flatmates, young men aging twenty four and twenty six respectively.
Their other flat mate, Kelvin who wasn’t a lover of football was left at home by the duo. Kelvin was older than the both of them, he was twenty eight. The three guys had met in the university and became close friends, instead of renting several single rooms, they had decided to stay together in a flat.
Bode and Frank walked into the house and met Kelvin fast asleep in the living room, although both had their different rooms, they slept most times together in one room chatting and sharing their day experiences.
” Kelvin, what did you prepare? We are so hungry o” Frank said to Kelvin, waking him up from sleep.
“You want to eat again? Aren’t you filled with football already? ” Kelvin asked jokingly, “Go into the kitchen, you’ll find beans. I’m going into my room to sleep, I have to prepare for Church tomorrow ” Kelvin said and walked away from them.
Frank and Bode rushed into the kitchen like kids who were fighting to get a toy. This was their usual manner, the first person to get to the got usually got the larger portion of food.
