Dejected is the perfect word to describe how dayo feel as he lay on his bed, streak of tears flow from his eyes down to his cheeks, he has never felt so embarrassed in his life, he can take such scolding from anyone else but definitely not his dad, he was angry not with him, but with himself for being so foolish.
This was the time he needed his mum the most but his dad has shut the door at any enquiry he tries to make about her, as he lay on his bed he continued to reminisces on what has happened in the early hours of the day .
He remembered how he walked into his father’s magnificent office not minding if he had a visitor,” give me some minutes” his dad had said before walking out to sit at the secretary’s post .
About 15minutes later his dad walked out of his office with the guest,
“meet my son dayo” his dad has said as the man looked amazed” wow, I never knew you have a son that’s this grown, How are you young man? You look just like your dad.
Dayo smiled as he stretched his hand to embrace his waiting hand, acting like a well brought up gentleman ”good afternoon sir” he said before his father interrupted him” he’s also an accountant in the making” he had said proudly ,he loves it when his father brags about him like that ” hmm impressive, just like your father hun?” the man had said.
Dayo was excited as a couple of other conversation ensured between them.
Moments later dayo sat with the secretary while he waited for his dad to be back from seeing his guest off, he was about to resume the game he paused on his phone when he heard his father’s voice” sorry son, that was a very big client of the company, he needed to be given special attention “he gave dayo a quick smile then continued” come on lets go to my office”.
Dayo sat on the sofa that is meant for relaxation in the office as he tune the tv to a music channel,” how is school, dayo” his dad asked “ quit stressful dad, it’s getting tougher and also money s-----g “ his dad smiled “ I know you will mention that, I know you are here for money” dayo started laughing uncontrollably “ seriously dad you don’t really get it, my laptop screen just crashed yesterday, my car needs spare tires, and the list goes on…” his dad interrupted him by asking” how much do you need dayo?” with a quick response he said “ “ just 120k dad, that would do for now” without looking up from his laptop screen his dad said” I will get it across to you tomorrow, is that ok ?” sure dad” was dayo’s response as he was happy he got the exact amount he needed for some new gadgets and the dinner party he needed to attend.
Dayo’s dad got up from his chair feeling a bit exhausted with work” hey dayo come and help me with this , I need to use the toilet, it’s a job from one of our big clients and I want to handle it myself, can you do this for me before I get back “ he said as he quickly typed something into the system then continued” I believe you should be able to do this by now” he adjusted his position so dayo could sit on his chair while he explained to him” so here are the data’s you need , I want you to get me the asset of this man, get the liability , get the owners equity , I hope you know what to do” he asked, dayo nodded in agreement to what his dad said,
Although he doesn’t know how to go about it but quit sure he has heard of the words before in class but can’t really figure out the meaning, his assignments in school where handled by a friend of his named Daniel, at that point he wished he had come with Daniel,” o my God “ he said as he tries to find a solution to it, it will be a great embarrassment for him if his dad finds out that he could not sort this out, he brought out his phone so he could Google the meaning and solution to it,but unfortunately for him , his phone battery was down that moment he typed the topic into Google search engine ,
he’s confusion grew as he tries to understand what to do with all the huge money figure on the screen” I am so f----d today he had taught to himself.0June 9, 2017 at 2:17 pm #1025082
He heard the sound has the water from toilet was been flushed down, his panic increased because he knew his dad would be out any moment from that time, then an idea came to him, he picked up the pen and scrambled some numbers into a blank sheet of paper just to make it look like he was working.
Dayo froze as the door to the toilet opened, now the moment has come he thought as his hand trembled,” how far have you gone boy?” his dad asked, he tried to find his voice as he struggle to speak,” still working on it dad” he said, he’s dad moved closer to see what he had been doing but was shocked .
“Have you gotten the liability yet?” he’s dad enquired, but dayo didn’t reply he just stared at the laptop screen blankly “ what about the owner’s equity?” he demanded again , but yet he didn’t give any answer,with both irritation and anger he shouted at dayo“ so what have you been doing ? hun dayo, don’t tell me you don’t even know the basic principle behind this hun?” dayo bowed his head in shame as he’s dad continued to speak with anger writing all over him” so you mean I have been giving you all that money just for you to go and waste it? Oh my God! Tell me, what is your CGPA?”
dayo refused to speak as he tries to move the chair backwards because he’s dad was getting too close to him “ is something wrong with your brain, I said what is your CGPA” he repeated, dayo stammered as he finally speak “ 2.64 sir” almost immediately the dad said” 2.6 what?! , o my God!” As he felt so disappointed.
“Do you know why I have not been asking about your performance in school dayo?, because I felt you were doing well, I gave you all those money because I wanted you to be comfortable, I never wanted any distraction for you, but I guess I was wrong, I made you too comfortable, honestly you really disappoint me ” dayo managed to speak after some minutes” I am sorry dad, I swear I am putting in my best” his dad ignored him as he tries to reply a message he just got on his phone,” dad please , I promise to change I swear” dayo repeated,
he’s dad dropped his phone on the table as he took a stern look at him” I have worked very hard to build this company , I know how I have suffered to get to this point where I am today ,so let me inform you that , I am never going to hand over this company to you if I see that you don’t deserve it” he took a deep breath before he continued” do you think I am that stupid hun? Just because you are my only child does not automatically make you the heir of the company, it’s my company and I can will it to anyone I see that is deserving of it”.
Dayo left he’s dads office feeling sad, it was the saddest day of his life , if anyone had told him that the day was going to end in such manner he would have fought the person, he would have called the person all forms of names but what can he do, everything has happened and it is he’s fault , he caused it, he had allowed all the money and fame to get to him, he’s company of friends were not helping matters too as he was the leader of his crew, he quickly rose to the top as the tag OMO BABA OLOWO was highly considered.1+June 9, 2017 at 2:18 pm #1025083June 9, 2017 at 3:09 pm #1025106jummybabeMember
