“Sasha O! Move your bum outta your room
and get yourself over here!” Cassandra
shouted at the top of her voice.
She glanced at the gigantic wall clock.
“Nine ‘o clock?”
“Sasha!” She squealed again her voice
“Lower your voice jawe, you wanna damage
my ear drum? Haba!” Sasha complained as
she she walked sleepily into the living
“Still sleeping abi? Won’t you help clean up

she was holding in the air.
“Abeg don’t remove my eyes jor!” Sasha
pushed the broom down.
“Am I the only one in this house? What

“Kenny is a male, understood? Now go get

rubbed her still sleepy eyes.
“Sasha please now, I’ve got lectures today

“Bribe me first.” Sasha pouted.
“Icecream and Samosa for you and Kenny

“wow…that sounds heavenly.” Sasha
smiled, collecting the broom Cassandra
Cassandra laughed as her younger sister
danced towards the kitchen.
“Icecream won’t kill you o!” she wiped dust
particles off the framed pictures on the
wall- still laughing.
She stopped laughing when she heard the
door to her father’s study creak open.
Joyce emerged with a satisfied look, she
catwalked into her room after having a brief
‘eye-fight’ with Cassandra.
“Dad’s still at home?” she asked herself
letting duster drop.
“How did that witch get in there?” she
murmured walking towards the study.
She walked straight in without knocking.
“forgot to knock?” Williams asked, eyes
fixed on his desktop.
“What was she doing here?” Cassandra
” I’m not your son Cassandra.” Williams
replied still clicking away.
“You didn’t go to work today? Why?” she
asked sitting on his paper-filled desk.
“Nothing you need to know.”
“But I’m sure you told that witch right? Or

“Cassandra!” Williams growled, adjusting
“Uhm…sorry dad.” she apologised.

“would I hide anything from you?”
“Dad…stop replying me with questions.”
she scoffed squeezing between him the
“Young lady need I tell you? You are not

“well…daddy’s girlie deserves to know

“You still make that face? I thought you’ve

“I’ve got just a mild problem at work.”
“That problem isn’t mild, cos my papa is

“C’mon stop pouting.” williams tugged at
her lips again.
“They’re getting longer!” Cassandra
“some important documents were

“Okay, I promise to tell her.”
“That’s my daddy.” Cassandra sang.
“Cassie? Where in this house art thou?”
Sasha’s voice rang out startling them.
” are you gonna tell me what Joyce was
here for?” Cassandra smiled at her father.
“just for money…or what were you

“Nothing at all…see you later dad.” she
winked running out of the room.
“Oh my….” Williams smiled, when last did
he laugh with his daughter?
“so madam akproko, what were you doing

“Dad aint in a good mood, he didn’t go to

“so you were consoling him or what?”
“Sassy? Its our father we’re talking about.”
Cassandra reprimanded her.
“and so? I thought you’ve disowned him?”
