His Dream

The realities of life and dreams...He was walking down the street. To where? To the Lagos Lagoon.

What was he going to do there? To end it all. Why? His wife and children just left him. Why did he choose that location? He had lost more than five interviews because of the Lagos traffic.

People wondered why he never answered their greetings as he was a very cheerful person. He was going to end it all. A limousine stopped him by. If not for the loud horn of the car, I guess he would have never heard the limousine.

The door opened, and who came out? The richest man in the world. He was speechless. What did the richest man in the world say? Hi Obi, I just discovered that you are my son. Obi said nothing as he stared into space. People gathered around to watch the scene. Or should we do a DNA test, the richest man in the world asked?

No sir, I've accepted. I'm your son. No need for a DNA test. Don't let us waste money, Obi said, who would have rejected such a juicy offer. Here is a two million naira cheque. Obi was about to collect it when his landlady woke him up to pay his two million naira electricity bill.
