I woke up that evening at the hospital bed, there was a sober mood
around me. Everyone was putting a sad face, the atmosphere was like
that of a burial funeral.
I started recalling things, the doctor said it. He was dead, they
could do nothing to save him, they tried their best but it wasn't
I started gazing at the ceiling looking lost, I tried remembering the
times I spent with my father. The smiles on his face, his laughs, how
we ate dinner together. When we went to church together, did christmas

Tears came out of my eyes, all I could say about him are all memories.
My hatred for the yorubas grew. They must pay, yes one way or the

father of being a good boy.
I wiped the tears from my face, I had to face reality, from dust we
come from, and to dust we shall go.
I stood up from the hospital bed and my mum came towards me, her face

if he could be my mentor. I agreed, at least he would make a role as a
After the funeral I knew I had many tasks ahead, I mustn't fail.
But was that the case?
You would surely know in the episodes to come.
