She is struggling with her children.
He took his luggaye and bade them good bye;
“I am going to my friend he is the supervising Reverend he was taking care of us he has called me to spend time with him.”
“its okay I am praying for you, you’ll soon be vindicated you are innocent of all accusations. Wherever you go God (Allah) will be with you.”
“I dreamt you have gone back to the Seminary with honours.”
He smiled and said;
“Thank you very much.”
Mean while the fools kept partying eating meat, throwing alcohol and sprinkling money on the ground for people to pick.
At the Seminary
“Welcome to my humble abode you were speaking over the phone but I cannot get you what do you want to say?”
“My sibling connived and threw me out of my abode just like that I did not do anything to them Charles masterminded them with my corrupt uncles, it just like in the movies.”
“What has come over them?”
“I contemplated suicide but I said no what was I going to say to my Lord and Saviour? I cannot die I must testify.”
“Who did I wrong to deserve such a punishment?”
“Calm down it is okay God is not mortal the Church has capable lawyers one of them will defend you everything will come back to you.”
At Abiodu’ Home
Badara is not doing well at his business he called his wife aside;
“My business is going down we are expecting a baby what are we going to do?”
She thought very hard then said,
“I have to talk to brother Charles he can raise that kind of money for us how much are you talking about?”
“In the millions anything will do we will cut our cloth according to what we have I want to go to China via Dubai I have some friends over there.”
At the Seminary
He took him to the Church to Lawyer Mary he told her all the problem;
“Mary here is my friend Tony Goswell he has so many problems I want you to help him.”
After exchanged greetings he asked;
“You have a good case how far do you want to go?”
“They are my siblings but what they did to me is undone let justice be done even though I don’t want to harm them.
“Justice will be done all your property will come back to you; have your father proclaimed Charles his first son before he died?”
“That was their bone of contention since I entered the Seminary with the support of my mom before her demise Charles told dad to proclaim him first son with all the rights and privileges but dad hesitated he did not like his attitude towards wealth this was never done now I can see why he was frustrated.”
“This is a simple case he is an imposter he is not a first son it is going to be extremely difficult for him All the wealth is yours you are the first son with or without Seminary.”
At Aunty Sophie’ home
Her children are disillusioned;
“Our schooling brother Charles have refused our scholarship which we enjoyed under Uncle. Go and beg him just for our schooling.
“Over my dead body I’ll not do it I am unlick Moses and Richard they sell their souls for silver and gold you’ll go back to school and I’ll not beg Charles; I refuse to side his wrong and he is still angry with me I don’t care.”
She and her siblings are not please with their mom.
“What principle is she guiding what about our schoolings?”
“End of discussion.” She exercised her mother’s right.
Charles raised money as Abiodu requested and he went to China via Dubai.
The Court was very precise Charles could not produce anything all his papers were not to be found his lawyer cannot prove him as the first son his dad has made no pronunciation concerning that matter.
“I don’t want anything to befall them they are my siblings.”
“The law will take its course there can always be prerogative of mercy their madness has to end.”
At Dad’ Compound
She came and thanked her brothers for helping her husband;
“He has to go to China via Dubai I am very grateful I am heavily pregnant I’ll be staying here until I put to bed and my husband comes back.”
