morning sun flashes into my eyes, it was
monday already. i slowly came down from

my bathroom to freshen up.. After
freshening up,Then i opened the door. The
sound in the sitting room got me thinking

madam because am sure she will be
dressing for work.
I came out and saw sara watching mtv
base,she never saw me as i walk through
the kitchen to warm the meal,I make sure
the kitchen is clean then i started cleaning
the sitting room,sara was still focused
watching the TV. Until i get closer to where
she was sitting that’s when she knew i was
Me : Madam sara,please excuse me i need
to dust the chairs
Sara : Have you dust other chairs?
Me : Yes, I’ve dust other chairs..
*she move to the other chair,while i dust
the chairs. My madam soon came out from
her room,looking nice and the perfume she
spray can take peson pikin to other
planets. I greeted her but sara didn’t. Even
notice her mum in the sitting room and and
her mum said to her.

(I got the key and handed it over to her,,
she gave me #1000 to buy detergents, she
said she was coming back with a visitor
and she wants the house neat.. She said
bye to us as she walk true the exit door..
Sara on the other hand went straight to her
room and after cleaning the house, I got
outside the sitting room to meet tunde who
is already listening to his morning news.

* It might be true,because last night she
was discussing with her daughter about

(I keep on asking my self questions without
knowing the answers to them all. I was not
happy because I’ve not done what i came
here for.. At least madam would have help
me get something doing before planning to
send me out, Oh Lord what have i done? I
was lost in thought. Not knowing sara have
been calling my name. She came closer to

Sara : Nicholas, what’s the problem, ve

said to her) Am fine sara.
Sara : but why is your mood like this?
Please forget anything that is bothering

Me : *surprised* Am fine sara, I was just

Sara : Ok.. Can you please make tea for me
or should i do it my self since you are not
Me : No, don’t worry, I’ll make it myself,
Sara : *smiled* thank you
( She left me there.. I stood up and walk
straight to the kitchen to make tea for her,
and also wondering how sara changed
suddenly.. Hmmm,Nawaa o,,. I carried the
tea cup and also brought bread, gave it to
her,as she smiled to me again.. I went to
my room.. I wasn’t thinking of what tunde
told me this time,I just focused on sara
suddenly change. The day goes down,I
used the detergent that was remaining to
clean the house and make sure everything
I pocket the money my madam gave to
me.. Sara on the other hand did not go for
lectures she was home through out the
day.. I was waiting for my madam and the
visitor, I don’t mind leaving the house,but i
was never gonna go back to the village.
It was 7:30pm already.. I heard tunde
opening the gate,finally it was madam,I was
looking to see who the visitor was,but she
wasn’t so clear to me,because its getting
dark, they both came in.. With the visitor
carrying her bag.. Nicholas!!! I heard my
name, I rushed down stairs, and my
madam said to me.
