Sitting close to her in the church, he looked focused on what the preacher was saying.
Suddenly, Helena’s phone beeped… It was a text message. She stretched for her phone beside her to see what it was this time. The number one suspect was MTN and their annoying “messages”. Raising the phone, she must have pressed ‘OK’ when the phone slipped off her hands onto Tayo’s body.
Immediately, as a nice brother he picked the phone for her. Tayo got hold of the big-screened phone and had a sharp sweeping glance at the message on the phone, he couldn’t believe it. It was GTB’s alert and the amount was #8,350,503.00. Whaaattt?
Considering how fast Tayo gave her back the phone, Helena never suspected he saw it. Even if he saw it, she wouldn’t mind.
Believe me. lol.. At the end of the service, Tayo “marked” Helena so closely and managed to start a conversation. It was swift, he got her number and everything started happening fast.
You don’t meet this opportunity everyday. A babe with 8million in her account? Yesu Kristi!!! 3 weeks later, Tayo shocked Helena with a marriage proposal. Helena was a church sister. She doesn’t believe in dating. She believes that the man that would marry her should come straight up with a proposal.
Tayo has fit into that. “Oh Tayo must be a Godly man” she reasoned… He didn’t even ask for her to come visit his house…Unlike others, he didn’t ask for sex. Now, he proposed? What a lucky girl Helena believed she was.
Piam… Piam… Piam… Tayo and his people had come for the introduction. Now, they have the list. It was not that expensive. He hustled to raise some cash and piam! They had done the marital rites. What a sharp brother!!!
He did his best to avoid letting Helena know that her money was the main attraction why “everything” was happening, so he never asked her about it. After the marriage, that same night, while they were in the room enjoying themselves, Helena’s phone beeped again. Another text message. Helena pressed some buttons and Lo, it was the same alert again. This time around, the amount has risen to 15million naira.
Helena hissed…Tayo jumped up from the bed wondering why his wife would hiss like that, as he glance through the phone once again, he didn’t know when he shouted “Woooowwww”.
But never know Helena would need his help; “Darling, please I’m tired of this text
message that is always putting me in trouble. My aunt that is in Canada opened
an account using my phone number. She did it on emergency. But now, I want to inform the bank to remove my phone number from that account before armed robbers would see this alert on my phone and attack me.” On hearing this, Tayo froze in shock with his mouth and eyes wide open, as he couldn’t believe what he just heard. He couldn’t seem to breathe well again… “EEEeeeeeehhhhhhH???” Was the only loud scream that he could utter. The wife ask “Baby, is anything the matter?”… Up to now an answer has not been provided.
