On Wednesday evening about eight fourty p.m, Erelu was screaming undoubtedly but inside indoor when Rotimi was just on his way back home from his farm and no one was around to peep inside and look at her to know why Erelu was screaming hoarsely. And such times Rotimi was cutting his right leg about four times on his way back home with huge and heavy loads of cocoa seed on his head, this event automatically indicated that something good has happened at home. But Rotimi’s mind was double minded of what such good thing must have happened at home, “or could it be that my brother or sister might have come back from the city without calling me, or what else?”
Erelu was just conceived of recent and it has not been to the state of giving birth to a child, Rotimi was lamenting to himself concerning the legs that he was cutting. But he enhanced his movement and this motivated Rotimi to arrive home early, looking everywhere suspiciously. But at such times, Erelu has given birth to a handsome baby boy. But Erelu came out with empty hands to aid down her husband load from the farm. Welcome darling, thank you honey how is home, and how did you cope at home today said Rotimi. Well I coped fine, what of yours reply Erelu, I thought that my brother or my sister came from the city when I was having those good signs of such. Yes of course, I gave birth to a baby boy when it was 8:50 p.m. in the evening said Erelu, are you sure of what you just told me is true said Rotimi, yes sir Erelu reply respectively. But who assist you here as obstetrician, nobody I was helpless but I believed
that God was in control, Rotimi rushed invaded into the room to see the baby and to carry him
without off of his farm uniform
with heavy sweat
of aromas. The beauty of the child incentives Rotimi and he decided to inform everyone in the community of the land of Odagbe, and also those from Erelu’s village to come to his compound for the naming ceremony because Erelu have told her husband to stop enmity to people, that she was very cordial to everyone. We should stop callous attitude on people said Erelu, and Rotimi got understood and flash papa Sunday to come back right away. Papa Sunday came like a house fly, with Gong in his hands, sir did you flash me, yes of course, there is promulgations said Rotimi, please I want you to go and inform everyone again
in both the village of Odagbe, and down to my in-laws village that everyone both old and young, should come to my compound tomorrow morning for
naming ceremony, and Rotimi went instantly to the Okobor market and bought a mighty cow with two bags of rice
5.0.4 Peugeot car, by the time Rotimi came back from Okobor market, his compound was booming with different faces of human beings that came from two villages. And these entice the villagers that clashed at Rotimi’s compound and those who came from far distance with legs got sopping.
Rotimi made everyone repasted to their satisfaction and gave them some rewards to take home while going. After eating and drinking, the Pastor came forward to declare the new born baby in the family of Rotimi and his wife Erelu, he took the baby from her mother’s hands with cries that shows that of a new born baby. At such time the pastor deposited the child and prayed that God should train the child to know his parents Rotimi and Erelu, the child’s name is Omoto, the pastor repronounced the child’s name to the crowd, and the public was well cognicized and the people returned back to their various homes with their remunerated. As soon as Omoto’s mother have attain this invaluable, Omoto’s mother was very razzmatazzing
her child, his father was no more going to the farm again instead he reposed or sleeping at home. When Omoto completed three months he started to crawl around the compound and outside the compound, so as many that saw him on the ground intend to envy him as if they could have a child as such as Omoto.
Omoto was loved by everyone passing along the express way and those coming into his father’s compound, they always say to his father. Rotimi how he gave birth to a child that does not have his image, this has always been a question that he had never got an answer to. Their neighbor always like to come and carry him away to play with him for some time until Omoto needs to go home and even people from his mother’s village used to come in the morning and take him away down to their village, and bring him back in the noon or evening time, Omoto’s mother would not retorted, even as that, instead she is busy at home with her husband but when his father was realize that Omoto was aggrandize he decided to add more to his farm in order to take good care of his family during famine because he did not want hunger to agitate Omoto and his wife Erelu, like the family of an idle man, Rotimi loves his farming affairs more than any other organization on earth. Rotimi was well known by everyone in the village of Odagbe as the greatest husbandry and when it comes for the harvesting process in the village of Odagbe, I dare you to challenge Rotimi with your farm produce at such time his farm produce is quiver than the whole village.
One day Rotimi told his wife to come closer that he had a relevant issue with her; she immediately came to him as his marchioness, and took themselves with their baby Omoto into their sitting room to discuss comprehensively. My dear I want you to compromise with me to do a pertinent farm service this very season. Erelu was very interesting and she could not aberrant from her husband’s principles, consequently, Erelu and her husband Rotimi went to the farm with their child but as soon as they were going with Omoto on her back, then as many people who saw them on the way to the farm were very worried. Why would Rotimi take his wife and child to the farm so soon but Rotimi did not listen to any of them because he and his wife have already collaborated. They avoid Rotimi to be incensed about that. Although all these things will be elapsed Rotimi said to himself so when they definitely arrived at the farm yard, Rotimi told his wife to take her child Omoto to the hut where the flash ray of the sun could not meet and heat him as well. Erelu placed her child at the very spot her husband had previously gave to her, Rotimi took Erelu and they both mobilize through the farm yards from the entrance and down to the edge of the whole farm. Erelu was too thrilling about it and asked her husband, when he had this hefting farm of land in this village of Odagbe. Rotimi look at her and laughter, I am not sluggish and my father was not sluggish too, about farming system. So I got this farm land about thirty years ago before my father was late. And this is where I plucked money from that enables me to build the four bedroom flat that we are staying at home now, said Rotimi Erelu was very excited and told her husband that they should preserved a little part from the farm land on the ground so that they would practice the one of diminished this time. Can’t you see you are stressing your competence, Erelu advised.
After working about three to four hours in the farm, unfortunately, Omoto got up from his sleep in the hut and started to cry unlike by his mother and she took him and they all went home happily.
