Chief: “Omoba, how are you?”
Omoba: Chief, I’m fine. It’s been a while. E ku ojo meta sir. How is Mama?
C: She’s doing well. I’m sure you are wondering why I called.
O: Yes boss.
C: Well, I have an assignment for you.
O: Ah. Oga, but you know that…
C: Omoba, I know. That’s why I have not called you for the past two years. I understand why you made your decision and I respect it.
O: Thank you sir. I’m happy you understand.
C: But…there is an assignment that came up a couple of weeks ago. I considered every person on ground and I decided that no one can execute it without leaving a trace. That’s why I need you.
O: Oga, I’m sorry I can’t. As you know, I’ve chosen a new path.
C: C’mon! I’m sure you have missed the adrenaline rush that comes with carrying out a hit.
O: Errm.. well.. it’s not like that.
C: Omoba, I need just 3 products. With your experience, it would take you less than one week. After this, I promise there would be no other assignment. Just help me with this. For old time’s sake.
O: Chief. I don’t want to do this again. Try and understand.
C: I’ll pay 5m for this. A week’s job. How many months would you need to work at that office of yours to earn this?
O: Oga, I don’t know..
C: Omoba, I know. I didn’t expect an immediate response when I decided to call. Take your time. Today is Wednesday, make sure you get back to me before the week runs out.
O: Hmm. Okay sir.
