I then said. “Please Tope, I just need to
know how you are faring, to know if I

comforts, but nothing compared to
Tope, whom I missed dearly. I knew I
would probably not see her again and
everything we had

grow dim
with time.
A week pa*sed and I didn’t hear from
Tope, as I suspected. I knew she must
have taken the decision to stay aloof, it
must have been
very hard on her. I had no option than
to move on and
face the reality before me.
Through my mom’s connection, I was
able
to secure a very profitable job in one of
the
biggest oil companies in Nigeria, in just
3 weeks
after my youth service….
