The following day, Ryan left for work
very early in the morning leaving Aria
behind. She prayed so hard for him not
to be sacked from work because she
was really hoping that soon, he will be
coming to make his intentions known
but how can he make his intentions
known when he doesn’t have a job she
asked herself.

Ryan got to the office on time before the
boss who told him he will have his reply
that day. He was scared and nervous for
he didn’t know what the outcome of the
offence he committed may be. He saw
his boss entered the office and on
sighting him, told him to come with him
and he obeyed.

Close the door behind you Ryan.

Ryan: He did as instructed, stood in front
of his boss who kept staring at him from
head to toe and bent his head.

You know what you did was
wrong right?

Ryan: Yes sir and I am very sorry.

He brought out the letter in his
b----t pocket and handed it over to him.

Take it and open it.

with his hands trembling, he
collected the letter and opened it. He
read the content of the letter, raised his
head up and said Thank you.

Don’t thank me, thank my wife else
you would have been out of a job by
now. You may leave for your suspension
starts today.

Ryan: Nodded his head and left the office
a little bit relieved. He went straight
home to deliver the news to Aria.

She was glad that he got 2months

suspension without pay and Thanked
God for it.

Please you should also be mindful
of how you shoulder you family
responsibilities. What if you were sacked,
wont life go on? eehh? Won’t life go on?
If you don’t have the money, just hide
your face. Don’t kill yourself to please
others. That should be a big lesson to
learn from.

I have learnt a big lesson and it
won’t happen again. By the way, I want
to go home. You know my parents sent
me a message yesterday and I haven’t

Aria: hmm. This is what i just said earlier.

Just imagine what was coming out from
your mouth? I took off because of you
and now you want to go home to your
people. Nawa ooo. ‘Don’t worry, when
we get married I will see how you will be
running home to your people’ she

Is that jealousy? He asked smiling
and drawing her close to him. You can
come if you want to. Besides, it is better
they start getting acquainted with you,
don’t you think?

I will come after you have shown
your face to my family and now is not
the right time to come because you guys
are having issues and it needs to be
sorted out. It will be best I go back home
to my mother.

Ryan: If you insist. I love you so very
much Aria. Whatever happens, don’t ever
forget that you’re the only woman that I
have ever loved.

Aria: I love you too Ryan and they
hugged. She noticed that his phone has
been ringing nonstop and asked ‘why
don’t you want to pick you call?

No point. I don’t want to hear
anything from them until I get there. I
know that whatever they tell me is
money related. Don’t want to spoil my
mood biko.

Aria: If that is the case, send them a text
that you are on your way.

Ryan: I will but that will be when I get in
the bus not now.

Aria: Alright.


Mrs. Ejiofor was restless. She felt
something was wrong but could not
place her hands on what it was. She felt
like something has left her but she
quickly pushed the thought of her son in
danger away. She went to her husband
who had just returned from the hospital
to see Evelyn.

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Papa Addson, it is somehow.

I feel something is wrong somewhere.

Ryan has never been home late to us
before. Especially when he sent a text
that he was on his way since in the
afternoon, he is supposed to be here by
now, I am deeply worried.

Mr. Ejiofor:
Be at peace woman, nothing
is wrong. My son, the apple of my eye.
Nothing is wrong. He will be here

Mrs. Ejiofor:
I hope sooo….i hope he is
okay wherever he is.

Mrs. Ejiofor stayed awake all through the
night. She prayed to God that wherever
her son is, he should be fine. She dialed
his number severally but all she got was
it was switched off. She tried Cameron’s
number, when he picked she asked if he
has heard from his brother. Cameron
said no and she asked if he has the digit
of the woman Ryan wants to get
married to. He quickly sent the number
to her and she dialed it immediately.

Aria: Hello! Who is on the line please?

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Hello my daughter, sorry for
calling late this night. I am Ryan’s

Her heart skipped when she said
that. Errmmm Good evening ma.

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Good evening my daughter.
Have you heard from my son?

No Ma! I have been trying to call
him but his number has been switched
off. I thought he is even home by now
and his battery is low.

Mrs. Ejiofor: He is not home oooo.

Do you think he branched somewhere else?

Ryan is not like that. He doesn’t
branch people’s place especially when he
made it clear to me that he is coming

I hope nothing has
happened to my son ooo. I am so

Don’t stress yourself ma. He is fine
wherever he is and nothing will happen
to him in Jesus Name.

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Amen ooo. Please do call
when you hear from him okay?

Aria: I will and not to worry, nothing will
happen to him.

Mrs. Ejiofor: Okay my daughter. Do have a goodnight rest.

You too and bye. She hung up the
call. Jesus Christ, where could Ryan be at
this time of the night. It is past 11pm
already. I hope he is okay wherever he is.

She tried dialing his number again but
still same old answer. She couldn’t go
back to bed but stayed awake till
morning wondering what could have
happened to him.

As Mrs. Ejiofor was still thinking about
where Ryan could be by 7:15am, her
phone rang. She looked at the caller and
saw it was Ryan calling.

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Yes Ryan, where have you
been? I have been sick and worried
about you since last night.

Caller: Hello Ma, good morning. Are you
Ryan’s relative?

Mrs. Ejiofor: who is this and where is my

Caller: I am calling based on that ma.

There was an accident in Orumba South
involving a petrol tank and a Lexus Jeep.

Your son was among the accident
victims who was rushed to Ekegwa
Hospital yesterday where he passed

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Hey! Chim mo! She
screamed. Isi gini, Ryan Nwam, you must
be mistaken. That is not my son.

Caller: then you should come to the
hospital immediately to identify the body.
He said and hung up.

Mrs. Ejiofor:
hey! I am dead. Hey! She
screamed. Mr. Ejiofor who was in his
room listening to NTA News left what he
was doing and rushed to her room,
followed by Adam and Dylan for Addison
went to the borehole to fetch water.

Mr. Ejiofor: What is it? Why did you
scream like that?

Mrs. Ejiofor:
Nwam mooo….! My child!

Ryan oooo! Hey! I am finished she lay on
the ground. Hey ehhhh…. My child ooooo.

Mr. Ejiofor:
Talk now. ‘What is it’ he looked at his wife and collected the
phone that fell from her hand. He went
through her calls and dialed Ryan’s

Mr. Ejiofor: Who is this please and why
do you have my son’s phone with you.
Where is my son?

He was involved in an accident last
night. You should come to the hospital
and identify his body.

Mr. Ejiofor:
What! No it cannot be my son
he said to the caller and dropped the
phone. Ah! Ah! Ah! My chest. He held
unto his chest with his hands, wriggling
and staggering in pain. Mrs. Ejiofor
quickly came to his aid and held unto

Mrs. Ejiofor: ‘What is it Papa Addison’ she asked afraid of what is happening before her very eyes

Mr. Ejiofor:
My Chest, I can’t brea….the….i
c….a….nt breat……. He collapsed.

Mrs. Ejiofor: She and Dylan quickly rushed him as he collapsed on the ground…Hey!

Papa Addison, don’t do this to me please
she screamed with tears in her eyes.

People come and help me ooooo… Come
and help me oooo she shouted while
Adam quickly rushed out to call for help.


Eight months later, Ryan Ejiofor and Mr.
Ejiofor were buried on the same day.

Aria attended the burial of the man she
gave her all to, accompanied with Jaycee
her best friend. Friends from far and
near attended the burial to pay their last
respect to a friend, brother, father and

After the burial, one year later, Cameron
got a job and switched to part time so
that he will be able to take care of his
family the little way he can and also
continue with his education but he
made sure he wasn’t overburdened with
responsibilities the way Ryan was. God
bless his soul.

Mrs. Ejiofor till this day blamed her dead
husband for the death of her first son
Ryan. If he hasn’t burdened Ryan with so
many responsibilities, her son may
probably be well focused and married
with a child without continued traveling
up and down. She took it upon herself to
make sure Adam, Dylan and Addison
look up to no one but themselves by
enrolling Adam in programming
training for him to be well skilled and
stand on his own instead of depending
on Cameron to cater for them always.
She taught Addison the okrika business
and also enrolled her in Makeup training

Dylan also secured admission, used the
small money he had to get a shop near
his school where he opened a restaurant
for business. While Evelyn went back to
her parents’ house.

Aria finally agreed to Jaycee proposal
and they got married two years after.
