Ajala: [Knocks on a large door and goes in] Good morning sir.
Gbedu: Good morning. What can I do for you?
Ajala : I have brought my application in answer to your advertisement in the daily news of yesterday.
Gbedu: Let me see it. This is alright, any testmonial?
Ajala : Yes sir, it is attached.
Gbedu: (reads it) hm, you are quite suitable. I am willing to try you for the job.
Ajala : Oh, that's very kind of you sir.
Gbedu: But I regret to say that there are many people equally qualified.even better qualified, applying for the job. It is not anything secret. I have a pile their applications hear in my file. The competition is very keen, my boy, but I have taken a special fancy for you . But there is still one thing you have to do before the job is yours.
Ajala : what is it, sir?
Gbedu : Do you know what kola is?
Ajala : yes sir, is it not kola nut?
Gbedu: Ha, that shows that you are a mere boy . Have you parents? What are they doing?
Ajala : My father is a carpenter, and my mother is a petty trader.
Gbedu: Good. I don't want to waste your time, or I should ask you to go back and ask from your parents what "kola" means. To save you this trouble, I'll just tell you in confidence that "kola" is only five poOooooooooooooo
Gbedu : Five quid, my boy. Nothing goes for nothing, you know.
Ajala : But please sir, my parents are very poor. They can't afford it . They had to borrow my school fees for the last time on striOct understanding that must pay them back within the first three months of my working. I have little or nothing in this world to call my own. Please sir, have mercy on me, I need this job very badly.
Gbedu : I am very sorry for you, my boy. But if you could manage to get your fees, you should manage to get this also .
Ajala : please employ me first and I shall then pay the five pounds as I earn my salary.
Gbedu: Ha, ha, ha, you are very clever boy . But others have made the same proposal as yours. I have even allowed one or two to come like that, but they have taught me a lesso. If you can manage to get the "kola" as you manage to get your fees, you will earn enough money to pay it back and still something to maintain your self.
Ajala : Thank you very much. But please sir, does it mean that you will give this job to somebody else if I fail to give the "kola" ?
Gbedu : The only thing I can do for you is not to fill the vacancy for the next three days. After that, even if you bring double the sum.i may not be able to help you again. You had better set about it now, as I have to go to meeting soon.
Ajala : Thank you very much sir,(he joins his friends out side )
What did you think Gbedu will do to Ajala .
The full story is coming soon.
