It has been five years since Ekene’s son (Uchenna who he named after his late dad) was given birth to and not even for once did Franklin failed to give Ekene the monthly allowance he promised him.
Ekene has been happy lately because he is very sure that he will be settled soon since he has completed his eight years of learning trade.
One evening, Ekene was in his room when their maid came to call him telling him that his master wants to see him.
Ekene quickly got up from his bed to the sitting room where his master is. Ekene greeted Peter and Kate but Kate was the one that told him to sit which he did
Peter: *clears throat* Ekene
Peter: I believe you know why I sent for you?
Ekene: No sir
Peter: Since you don’t know let me tell you why. Ekene you are suppose to learn trade with me for eight years right?
Ekene: Yes sir
Peter: And now you have learned the trade for eight years which means am now suppose to settle you but that won’t be happening.
Ekene: Why sir? Have I done anything wrong to you for the past eight years?
Peter: No you haven’t done that to me but what you did is far worst
Kate: What did he do that is far worst?
Peter: This boy you see here that we all believe is a saint is nothing but a liar and a thief who has been stealing from me
Ekene: Sir I have never stole from you before
Peter: Will you shut up your mouth there or did I even asked you to talk?
Kate: Why are you accusing this boy wrongly or is any of your money missing?
Peter: *trying to avoid answering his wife question* Kate if you think am accusing him wrongly then ask him if he doesn’t have a baby mama and also ask him if he didn’t steal N70,000 from me to pay for his baby mama’s hospital bills.
Kate: What do you mean by Ekene having a baby mama?
Peter: This Ekene you see here impregnated a girl five years ago under our very nose without us knowing
Kate: *turning to face Ekene* Is it true that you have a baby mama?
Ekene: Yes ma but I didn’t steal any money from my master
Kate: I believe Ekene because I have tested him countless times to see if he will steal from me but not once did he steal
Peter: If am lying then he should tell me where he got all the money he has been using to take care of his son from
Kate: Ekene please tell us where you got the money from because I know you didn’t steal it
Ekene: Oga Franklin has been the person taking care of my son and he is also the person that gave me the N70,000 for the operation
Peter: Which Franklin?
Ekene: Sir the one you learned trade from
Peter: You are lying and you know what? Am sick and tired of all your lies. First you impregnated a girl, then you stole from me and if that was not enough, you have the guts to lie with my master’s name so now I want you to get out of my house this very minute.
Ekene and Kate pleaded with him not to send Ekene packing but he didn’t listen
Peter: No amount of pleading will change my mind. So leave
Peter left them in the sitting room and went to his bedroom. Kate gave some money to Ekene and told him to leave just like Peter had earlier said but not without promising to talk to her husband.
Ekene left the house to Ifeoma’s house.
Kate entered their bedroom only to meet her husband lying on the bed
Kate: Honey what you just did to Ekene is so unfair. That boy didn’t steal from you and I am very sure you were only using that stealing as an excuse for you not to settle that boy which is very bad of you. I want you to also remember that you stole from your master but he still settled you
Peter: He settled me because I played my cards well. He never got to find out that I stole a lot from him.
Kate: Peter please I beg of you to do the right thing
Peter: Right thing which is?
Kate: To settle Ekene
Peter: Oh I see!
Kate: You see what?
Peter: You love that boy that’s why you are still asking me to settle him after we found out that he stole from us. How am I even sure you weren’t even sleeping with him under my nose
Kate: So you are trying to accuse me of infidelity just because am advising you to do the right thing which is for you to settle Ekene.
Now I even want you to tell me how you were able to find out about Ekene’s baby mama.
Peter: The hospital where the baby mama put to birth belongs to my friend and he was the person that told me everything.
Kate: That means it has been long you knew about the baby mama but kept quite so that you would use it against him when you want to settle him right? But let me tell you this, Ekene’s God will fight for justice for him
Peter replied his wife with “God won’t fight for him because I did the right thing” and the left the bedroom for his wife.
