The Q10 story. Episode 5.

A week had gone by since I heard from Dr Edu. I wasn’t missing the attention but a part of me still wanted that phone. I almost had to chain my hands and feet from finding the man and asking about the phone… Cunningly, of course.

It was Wednesday and I was busy typing away at my desk when I noticed that a dark figure had entered the room and was staring at me. I looked up and saw Dr Edu standing right infront of me. I immediately jumped up and greeted, stating that my boss was out for lunch but would be back shortly. He said he had called him already. I offered him a seat which he took and we started talking. He asked why I hadn’t called him since Saturday and I said I had been busy.

Just then the driver walked in, greeted me and handed some things over to the doctor. I feigned disinterest and continued with my work. By the time I raised my gaze to his, Dr Edu was standing.

“I have to leave now, I can see you are really busy and I have a lunch meeting set up. Tell your boss I was here. Give these to him and this one is for you.” He said handing a box and files to me.

“Okay Sir, I’ll let him know. Thank you, sir.” I said smiling. I began tearing the box apart as soon as he was out of sight. The moment I realized what it was, I shrieked. My scream must have brought the roof down. I was over excited; I had just gotten the Blackberry Q-10 that was released just yesterday!! OMG! This can’t be happening, I thought. I immediately dialed Dr. Edu’s number and stared singing praises. “Thank you sir, I’m so grateful. God bless you.”

“You’re a great girl. You deserve what you want.”

As the line went dead, I returned to toying with my new phone.

Dr Edu and I communicated more, over the phone after that day. He was a ‘text-er’ and we could relate on a lot of things. People all over beefed because of my new phone. The news that I had gotten the phone spread like wildfire in my circle but I told no one how I got it because I wasn’t ready for the scrutiny.


Finally, my days as a worker were over and I had made enough money to get some new clothes to start the new semester, enough friends to last me a life time and enough work experience I was grateful for.On my last day of work, the staff of the ministry of finance where I worked even treated me to dinner. I was indeed humbled.


First day in school and I was already tired and eager to get home. My friends and I were walking towards CRUTECH main gate when a black convertible drove past us.

“I always dream my husband would have that car. And on the wedding day, he’ll drive me from the church to the reception in it” I said dreamily

“Zazi the dreamer” Amanda said

“Dey dream dey go” Nkechi added

We all laughed in unison but the thought that I had seen the driver somewhere before bugged me but I pushed it away and continued walking.

“One of you needs a car and ASAP” Nkechi complained

“You nko?” I asked

“It’s better if my friends do, because I won’t need to stress myself learning to drive” She replied

“This car agai__” Amanda’s statement was cut short by the convertible swerving off the road to park right in front of us. I thought the driver probably wanted to talk, ask for directions or something else.

I kept walking because I was not interested in small talk.

“Zazi!” The driver shouted. I halted and looked back.

I was shocked to see Junior’s step-mum, coming out of the car.
