opposite

as

he kept looking round the house.

“God

has been really nice to you brother”

“I

thank God for you and what he has done in our family

for

the past two years. My business has witness a great

success

an here you are, a free man again. I really thank Him

for

His good works. Welcome back home my brother”

“Thank you sir” Austin replied looking sad.

“Brother,

I really want to see shantel”

“Shantel is not in the country right now. I leant her

parents

sent her off to America to study”

“No wonder” Austin exclaimed.

“brother, is there anyway for me to get her contact?

pls help me”

“Hmm. if chief Richard gets to know that you’re after

his

daughter again! I’m afraid he will kill you this time around.

so

I will suggest you let destiny decide your future with

her” Mr. Williams said.

“No, How can I go on without shantel in my life? I dont

know how to” Austin said.

“You have to. I will buy you jamb form and send you

to the village. All

you need to do now is concentrate on your studies

and

let God decide what will happen between you and her”

“Are you sending me back because of chief?”

“yes”
