“Nothing, Father” Favour replied her father
in the room and resumed dressing the bed
to avoid more interrogations from him. The
father smiled happily and left the room
thanking God for such moment when his
daughter seemed normal and happy.
On the other hands, Nath sat at the
Varander wearing a short and a singlet. He
leaned on the nearest wall with his hands
folded. The thought of Favour and how he
felt for her filled his mind. Suddenly, he
stood up into the house in a hurry, dressed
up and headed to the residence of Denis.
Just reaching there, he met Denis himself
coming from the opposite direction.
“Good morning, Sir”
“Morning, you are..” Denis looked at him
thoughtfully. “I use to see you somewhere”
“That must be on the road”
“Exactly! Where you sell something”
“So, what brought you here?”
“Umm.. i actually brought Favour home last
night after i rescued her from whatever she
saw that scared her”
Denis was pleased to hear that. He looked
around, lowered his voice and told him to
put her daughter along with the small work
he does on the road and he agreed.
Both departed while Nath moved towards
the house. As he wanted to climb the
broken stairs, he fell down thereby
attracting Favour’s attention who came out
instantly to see him standing up. She
couldn’t move but stared at him until he also
looked up to see her looking more beautiful
than he thought regardless how local she
appeared. He straightened up.
“Hi, sorry for.. for falling”
“It’s okay” Nath dusted his butt0ckz, then
both became mute for a while before Favour
said, “What are doing here?”
“I guess I’m stupid to be here” Nath replied.
“No, that’s not what i mean. I.. i mean good
morning” she tried to climbed down the
stairs to meet him but stumbled on it and
fell down too, though, only to find out that
she was in Nath’s hands thus staring at him
as she straightened up. When the stare
lingered, they began to smile.
“Thank you” Favour glanced at the broken
stairs. “I guess one day we shall get a better
“We?” Nath moop at her.
“Um.. sorry, i mean ‘we,’ as in, my father and
i. We can’t forever be poor. We must be rich
Nath smiled. “I came to see if you are okay”
“Yes, i am. Thank you for last night. May i
know your name?”
“Okay, please, come inside”
“No, I’m going to work and I’ll like you to
join me. We buy in whole and sell to
consumers on the road. It’s actually fun and
i know you’ll make a good sale”
“But i don’t have money to start”
“Don’t worry, I’ll start you up with a small
amount. From there, you’ll get more”
Favour finally got what she wanted, that is,
to become closer to her hero. Therefore she
accepted the offer after Nath made it known
to her that her father was aware of it too.
Days and weeks passed, Favour got along
with Nath and Jesse in a friendly way. They
had been hard working and associating
peacefully until Jesse noticed Nath gradually
falling in love with Favour without giving
her attention anymore. By the side of the
road, she saw both of them laughing and
eating gala which they occasionally fed
themselves and hit each other’s face with
some pieces of it. Suddenly, Favour carried
her goods running after a moving vehicle,
an expensive and classic car which splashed
her water from head to toe even her goods.
So she became sad and returned to Nath as
Jesse kept watching them from afar. Nath
carried her goods, kept it on the ground,
held her hand and said, “There is no reason
to be sad. Such is life, dust and gold. But i
want you to know something: without the
soil that produces dust, gold wouldn’t have
been found. One day we shall ride on such
expensive car too, okay”
Favour nodded her head trying to clearn
herself up after which Nath handed the
goods back to her then courageously smiled
at her too.
Seeing all that, Jesse became extremely
jealous and went home before them. She
flung her unfinished goods on the ground
and sat down angrily with her hands folded
until her grandmother came in.
“Jesse, what is your problem?” she asked
supporting her weight with a staff but Jesse
remained quiet. Therefore she sat beside
her. “I guess your problem is Favour”
Jesse looked at her wondering how she
knew her name. “How do you know her?”
The granny groaned. “What an elder sees
sitting down even if a child climbs the
mountains, he will not see it”
“What do you see?” Jesse became not only
curious but also enthusiastic..
After Nath and Favour made all their sales,
they began to go home. The day had
become dark. They held each other’s hands
walking gradually with strong emotional
feelings until they reached where to depart.
None wanted to leave without the other but
that was impossible coz they weren’t
married. Moreover, they had not officially
profess their love to each other. Favour
hoped he profess as both stood there
speechlessly and looking at each other’s
