Striving For Knowledge-Episode Seven
FEMI`S JOURNEY TO AMSTERDAM
Femi travelled from Ekiti state to Lagos after bidding farewell to his sister, father,stepbrothers, and other well−wishers. His mind was still unease because he feared that Spider might track him down. He kept on looking over his shoulders at the bus park. He arrived at Lagos and meet with the flight receptionist for his flight ticket at one of the busiest International Airport in Lagos.
He walked to the check−in−desk and a young fat Yoruba man asked for his boarding pass.
He was privileged to meet Mr.Olu on the queue,who was a businessperson from Ekiti state.He was on a business trip to Amsterdam.Mr.Olu volunteered to sponsor a first class ticket for him.He wanted both of them to sit together on the plane. “Pastor Matthew and Rita`s prayers are really effective,” he thought. Their seat numbers were A12 and A13, which was close to the cabin window.
He thanked Mr.Olu, after which he proceeded to the immigration stand where his passport was stamped to go into the main departure hall.
“Where are you travelling to?” A strange voice said as he was about to pass through the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency(NDLEA) stand.
“Netherland”he answered hastily.
The young woman asked for his passport and he gave it to him.
“Hmm! I must confess you`re good looking,”shesaid staring deeply into Femi`s eyes lustfully.
“Thanks,” remarked Femi.
“It’s this your First time of travel?” she asked.
“Certainly,” he answered politely.
“Can I have your phone number?”
“Why? Femi asked in surprise, thinking that he had done something wrong.
“Just for friendship, “she quickly cleared his fears.
“Alright,” he took her mobile phone and dialed his number on it.
“Thanks,” she said and gave Femi a wink.
Femi was very amazed at her behavior.
“Wow such a handsome man! I wish he was mine,” she imagined.
