    A story boldly written by Joyce Okolie.

    I am chief Rufus! yes u heard me, chief Rufus, the one and only international Igbo man who do import and export of goods, I am yet to marry because I feel women are expensive, I said expensive because I don’t like releasing my money! I mean my cash to them, not that I don’t have the money, the money is there but I hardly release it to them because they are thieves,..

    I am well known and respected In that city of port because I have the money,.. I value my money more than even my life,..another thing I find disgusting is for a woman to lie or cheat me for my money, anyway I am not panicking because I always carry my special calculator on my pocket any day any time,..women always flock at me because I am very wealthy but end up run away because they can’t get anything from me, and lastly, I don’t joke with my calculator,..anyway that’s all about me for now. I am going to one of my shop to calculate my money and goods, just to be sure my boys there are not stealing from me! I don’t joke with my money.

    Kelvin a very handsome and hard working young man who always disguise himself just to look for a wife material, he always disguise himself because women has really dealt with him and at the end, they will take his money and ran away, all these continued, not until one certain day, his friend whose name was Paul advised him to disguise himself so that he will find a wife material, because kelvin is desperately looking for a wife, at first kelvin wasn’t comfortable with the idea of his friend Paul but later gave it a second thought, ”yes! if that is the only way for me to find a true love, then I will do it! women has really dealth with me and eats me alots! enough is enough”, kelvin said smiling at the good ideal.
