It was on Saturday evening, when the sun had went down the south, about 6:30 p.m., when Rotimi was returning from the farm, and at such times, the road was always desolated and cloudy, where huge and tall mango trees are covering down, while crickets are usually set out to craw on the road side. And most of the people who farm on the road, always return home before noon, because the road was very far away from home and some of the people that went to the farm have to work with time to see exactly when to stop working and return back home before noon.
The elders of the village definitely indicated the hours and minutes they could spend on the farm to return back as early as 12:30 p.m. with their wives and children.
Rotimi who did not have a wife or children preferred to stay in the farm from Monday to Saturday, as he was born by farming affairs in the village of Odagbe. Odagbe is arable and Rotimi’s father had taught him all the skills and techniques of farming. Rotimi’s father taught him the land that is fertile to plant different types of crops. His father was a great farmer, in which people were talking about than any other person in the whole village. His father instructed him how to disband crops in the farm yard. Unfortunately his father was late. And Rotimi began to stay on his own; he always had a feeling about his father’s death. At such times, he lamented why his father could not stay and eat the food of his son Rotimi, because his father was his availed.
Rotimi had his father’s pain as if he should die, and go with his father to the grave, if possible because his father had never gloat to him one day when he requested his father for anything of used. Rotimi’s father ought endeavors to glut him enough.
Rotimi was not deviate from the hand work of his Father in the village of Odagbe. Rotimi had a peasant farm land with different type of crops. The farm was very rich to plant Kolanuts, cocoa, cassavas and yams. Rotimi had every crops and he harvested his crops. At such period of each crops that produced. Rotimi was not really educated, just like father like son.
Although Rotimi’s father was encouraging Rotimi to go to school even if it was close to the village they had public primary school which was for free, so that it can stabilize and galvanized him in the village of Odagbe. But when his father says this to him Rotimi will squash his face on his father. Since he has not got into deduced, and he was not socialized with the people around him.
Every morning, Rotimi will take his bag and cutlass with hoe, and went to the farm alone, whenever he saw people with their wives and children that are always going to the farm. Rotimi would not felt as if he should also marry a wife to have children for him, and the issue had become on what the people of the land of Odagbe have denounced him for, that he is an impotent man, and when some others people refer him as he is worried by homosexuality.
One day a little sense came into his mind, and he realized that the people of the entire village of Odagbe have defaced him enough, that depreciated his name. Rotimi’s mind dissolved bitter and became sympathetic of all this sundering.
Then Rotimi sat on the floor of his door step and deem himself why people accused him as if it’s a cause for him and not to married.
But that same day Rotimi could not sleep as usual, he survey the matter that hanged on his head and he examined himself from left to right and he said he would marry. So that what all the people of the village of Odagbe are saying about him are dispensable. And at such time Rotimi was very litter of how he can spine a woman that was his major problem and Rotimi confront this problem like a giant wall on his visage, and that was why he was not aproposed to make proposal to any woman that he saw.
One day a woman came to Rotimi’s house to demand for a tuber of yam. She purposely came to test the attitude of Rotimi of which he had not got any woman from the village of Odagbe to marry, because such men are full of stingy. The woman knocked at the door, shout his name Rotimi! Rotimi! As soon as he heard the voice of the woman, and her hand on his door, Rotimi pretended that he was not at home and he didn’t responded the woman after waiting for about fifteen minutes, she felt that Rotimi has just taken his bath, and he is applied cream inside indoor, that she should wait for him for some while and Rotimi felt that the woman came to ravished him in his own house this afternoon, he personally not want to open his door. Rotimi didn’t know that the woman have saw that the door was not locked and this ensure the woman to know that Rotimi is inside the house, after some while, Rotimi felt that the woman ought
have gone back to where she came from. In attempt to open his door, unfortunately Rotimi saw the woman sat beside the door, he was very consternation.
When he saw her and he hang shame on himself, the woman said to him, “Rotimi please I have been here for about three hours ago, but I thought you were sleeping, that was why I sat down to wait you however long”. “But for what reason you are here” said Rotimi “I came to your house for vocation for a tuber of yam” said the woman. “Is that all?” said Rotimi, “no not only that, “I feel like staying with you here in your house to garnish your room” said the woman Rotimi had noticed such woman as a harlot. And he forthwith gave her a tuber of yam with nutshell, “go away from my compound or else I will vulnerate you for this singular reason”. The woman vamoosed without waiting for appreciations and Rotimi was not hedonist.
Then it was this thus that fortitude Rotimi each times he began to pray that God should provide him a woman that comes from elsewhere with awesome and not such from nowhere of bewitched.
Rotimi prayed and fast to achieve a woman every Sunday when he cannot go to the farm for good seven days and God revealed him a pretty woman with natural endowment for him in a dream that he should go to the village of Okobor that is where she is. And Rotimi was also apparent this woman through the dream.
