Thinking aloud and crying, “what will I tell Maami”, she asked herself, Maami has said this was the last money on her, Maami will definitely kill me tonight, if I don't return home with the items.” She said, remembering what has transpired earlier.
Adufe! Adufe!! Adufe!!!; Omodunni popularly known as Iya Adufe in the area screamed out loud. Adufe dashed in and was about to apologise for not answering her mom earlier when Omodunni shouted…”Oohhh, now you wait till I call your name multiple times, before responding right; It's okay. “Take this”. She gave Adufe her a thousand naira note. “This is the only cash on me, take it with this list and buy what it can afford, ignore the others; you would go back to their market probably tomorrow, when your dad comes back” she said, handling the list to Adufe.
As she was about leaving, “Wait, before you leave, let me sound this warning to your ears, don't go and sleep at the market, you had better rush down there and come back in a jiffy”; Omodunni warned. Adufe dashed out before her mother completed her statement.
Hours later, Omodunni was already worried. “I hope Adufe has not gone to her friend’s place to play or accompanied her friends out, she would come back and meet me, She already forgot that I needed those items urgently, I already warned her severally to stop going to the market with her friends or going to their place when I send her on an errand, I would wait here for her, and beat that stubbornness and disobedience out of her when she returns” she said to herself.
After sometime, it was getting really late, she hasn't seen Adufe, she stood outside waiting for Adufe, then she saw Adufe's friend, Omotade coming towards the house.
