A Story: A Good Name IS Better Than Riches
|A Story: A Good Name IS Better Than Riches by George: 3:11 pm On November 7, 2018|
Write a story ending with: “A Good Name IS Better Than Riches ”
While I was going through the questions to ascertain the topic to choose and write on, my mind just couldn’t forgo the above topic because it reminds me of what happened two years ago which I would like to narrate here.
It is a lifelong lesson for me and others who might read this story. One sunny afternoon when returning from school after the end of the second paper of the day in the school on the promotion examination, I was across one woman who was neatly dressed and dangling a car key which I assumed was her car’s. true to my assumption, she had a car- a Toyota Camry LXE.
The woman approached me and said, ‘Young boy, what’s your name? and before I could give her my name, Emeka: who was with me then just greeted her and told her my name, oluwaseun. The woman laughed and ‘said that’ she needed a house help and that the way she saw me, I would serve her purpose. I told her my parents would not allow me, that she could instead call on Emeka. She said no, that she would go home with me and inform my parents. In order not to prolong the matter, we were already in her car on the way to my parents. When we got home, my mother was the first to be seen. She was surprised to see me in the car for she thought
I had damaged something in the school. Before I could say anything, the woman introduced herself as Dr. Mrs. Giwa who used to travel always but wanted somebody to take care of her house whenever she was not around. That she wanted Seun. My mother was baffled and called on my father who was enjoying his Beans and Garri for that afternoon. My father called her in and in no time she gave him huge sum of money and my father consented to her request. That was how I got to the woman’s house. She told me I would be working with her and so my movement should not be more than the furnished sitting room. When it was time to sleep, ‘mummy’ for that’s how I started to call her, she called me in and when I entered her bedroom, I ran out saying sorry ma. She shouted at me “come in here!” I went in and she was half n*ked asking me to scratch her back for her. I was thinking of how to scratch and before I knew it, she pounced on me and pressed much on me asking me to sleep with her that, but I told her, “a good name is better than riches” and I ran back to my parents crying.
