°°
°°

>> I was so reluctant to pick dad’s call because I knew he wanted to have some talks with me, but I wasn’t in d mood to listen to him…… After d second ringing, Dr Korede picked my phone, checked d caller…..,I stored Dad’s number with “Beloved father”….. seeing it was my dad, he urged me to pick it:
.
DR KOREDE: Doctor, it’s your father o…..
.
DR SANYA: Of course, I know.
.
(Dr Korede was looking puzzled)
.
DR KOREDE: You know??…… Why then are u not picking it up?
.
DR SANYA: He wants to have some talks with me and I have told him that I will call him when I have the time…..As you can see doc, now is not d best time
.
DR KOREDE: I get your point, but you may still….
.
[Lo and behold, my phone is ringing again and it’s still my father…..]
.
DR KOREDE: Please, pick your call…… You can tell him u will call back later….
.
[ I agreed and I picked d call……]
.
DR SANYA: Hello, dad.
.
DAD: My boy, how are u?….
.
DR SANYA: I am not fine, dad……
.
DAD: (Inquisitively) Why? …. What’s d matter? Talk to me, boy!
.
DR SANYA: Since morning, things have not been rossy here….. Despite how much we tried, we still lost that patient…..
.
DAD: What!…. Oh my God!!!….What actually was d nature of his sickness?
.
[ For my mind, I was asking myself if daddy actually called to discuss d man’s death with me…]
.
DR SANYA: He wasn’t sick, he was poisoned
.
DAD: (Shocked) Holy Mary!!!….. But people are wicked sha…..


.
[ Dr Korede looked on at me]
.
DR SANYA: In fact, since morning, I have not been myself.
.
DAD: Habaa! Why that? Is that your first time of seeing somebody die? Or aren’t u a doctor any longer?
.
DR SANYA: Apart from d fact that d death was a painful one, he was an old friend of mine back in d university days…… He was one old friend that I have been trying to re-establish contact with since graduation.
.
DAD: Really?
.
DR SANYA: Daddy, do u still remember d 300level student I told u risked his life to safe me from those cultists that kidnapped me when I was in d final year?
.
DAD: Of course, I remember…… Don’t tell me he was d guy…
.
DR SANYA: He was, dad. For my sake, that young man was hospitalised for days due to some life-threatning injuries he sustained during my rescue…..Don’t forget I graduated few months later, after which I traveled out of d country before I came back for my #NYSC…..That was how I lost contact with him. Ever since then, I had been trying to get him…., only to see my helper this morning, struggling for his life right under my nose…..
.
[ I began to shed tears….Dr Korede moved closer to me and place a hand on my left shoulder in consolation ….. I guessed Dr Korede too was just grabbing d real picture of who d late man, #Yusuf really was to me….]
.
DAD: Well, he is gone. You Will have to put yourself together, God knows u tried your best. Please, life goes on!!!
.
DR SANYA: Thank u, daddy. You said in d morning that u have an important issue to discuss with me….
.
DAD: Yes, it is true. But I am afraid, as it is now, u are not in d best of your mood…. I will so much love it if u can come home to see me tomorrow, good enough, today is Friday.
.
DR SANYA: Tomorrow?? Can’t it wait till next weekend?….. Alright, be expecting me tomorrow then,but I may not sleep over o
.
[ I resided in Ibadan and my home town is just 2hours drive to Ibadan…]
.
DAD: Thank u boy. I will definitely be expecting u
.
[END OF PHONE CONVERSATION…. ]
.
DR KOREDE: So, u are travelling to your home town tomorrow….
.
DR SANYA: Yes oo! I have to go and hear what dad has for me…. I have known him for d past 36years, he won’t call u to see him if what he has for u is not important.
.
DR KOREDE: No problem bro, I will be here waiting for u while I handle every matter pertaining to your late friend…
.
DR SANYA: Yes, that reminds me…..tell d wife not to pay a kobo, let d payment be on me.
.
DR KOREDE: Sealed!

>>>I went back home that day so moody…., every food I tried to eat was tasteless in my mouth….. I managed to force myself to eat bread with fried egg before finding my bed to bid d day goodbye.
.
Right there on my bed, I began to have series of #flash_backs , from how I met Yusuf to how he rescued me, leaving him hospitalised for days…… I went to visit him on d hospital bed and I was so keen to ask him why he risked his life to save mine…. His response was:
.
“Today, I #Yusuf was in d best position to help a brother…..if I don’t do it, I may be helpless in d nearest future because I too may need the same brother on a matter of life and death. So bro, what I did for u is what u too can do for me if u too find me in a state of life and death.”
.
>>>I started shedding tears uncontrollably…..To me, I have disappointed a #true_friend . My people, those are d words of my dearest
#life_saver! He saved me when he had d opportunity but I couldn’t save him when it was my own turn….. Now, u know what has actually broken my heart and why I said he never deserved to die in such manner. Who could have killed such a #kind_hearted man? WHAT A PAINFUL EXIT!!!
.
#A_rare_gem_is_gone . But just as I have vowed, I won’t leave any stone unturned,……. whosoever was responsible for Yusuf’s untimely death will pay with his or her life….., I was determined to avenge my friend’s death as my own last respect for his person…..
.
Before I slept,….amidst tears, I thought about my meeting with my dad d next day while I put my phone in #silence_mode
and slept off.
