Must Read: Adventures of Yejide
 - Season 1 - Episode 11
Read The Story
Yejide woke up on the hospital bed beside
Kelechi who had witnessed the accident and
helped rushed Yejide and the man who was
driving to the hospital. She looked at Kelechi
in confusion and asked what had happened.

After Kelechi narrated what he had witnessed,
Dupe walked into the ward, rushed to Yejide’s
side and hugged her. Kelechi who watched
this didn’t say a word until Dupe looked at
him and thanked him. Dupe hadn’t realized
that it was the Kelechi, ‘the church boy’ as
they had been referring to him that she was
thanking until Yejide introduced them. Dupe
put a hand to her cover her mouth when she
found out and apologized. Kelechi did
nothing else than to smile and say it was
fine. Not too long after, he stood up and told
the ladies that it was time for him to leave.
“Your friend is here so I will check up on you
later sister Yejide. Take care and God bless
you. Goodnight!”

Before he left, Yejide thanked him and
apologized for how she had been treating
him. She thanked him for saving him even
though he told her that it was God and not
him who saved her. She and Dupe couldn’t
help but feel bad and embarrassed knowing
that the man who she had been trying to
avoid and pushing away was the same man
who selflessly helped her. The next day when
she got discharged, She and Dupe found out
that her bill was paid by Kelechi. Again, she
couldn’t help but feel bad upon finding out so
she called him and thanked him.

Yejide had to leave the hospital in bandages
and crutches because her leg was broken.

She was told she would get better but that it
would take a while. Yejide obviously felt
horrible hearing this because she knew she
couldn’t continue her night walk with Dupe.

The ladies both went home in a taxi that
Kelechi had sent for them. When they got
home, mama ejima who had heard about the
incident went to see Yejide, bringing along
some home made food for her since they
hadn’t been around to cook. Mama ejima
talked with Yejide and Dupe for a while before
leaving for her home. All through this time,
Yejide hadn’t even received a call or text from
Eric, her boyfriend. He hadn’t sent a message
through anyone or hadn’t come to look for
her. This was two days after her incident even
though she had previously asked Dupe to help
her call him whose call was not returned
when he didn’t answer. Dupe decided to stay
the night again and help her friend so she
didn’t go out that night as usual.
In the afternoon the next day, Kelechi went
over to see Yejide. He had called to know if it
was okay for him to come so when she said
yes, he left his house as soon as he could.

Kelechi branched at a restaurant to get food
for Yejide and Dupe just before he got to her
house. Dupe had been leaving the house
when she met him at the gate who she
greeted and showed the way to their house.

As soon as he got inside and met Yejide
sitting on the bed, he couldn’t help but smile
warmly at her. She looked up and greeted him
returning the smile. Yejide told Kelechi to
take a seat before he stretched his hands and
handed the food he had bought for them. She
thanked him and both started talking. They
talked for a while, with their conversation
including questions from Yejide like why do
you call me? Why are you helping me?

Kelechi replied in his subtle voice as usual
that it was God who had sent him to her.

Yejide sighed upon hearing his replies and
asked some more questions. She was tempted
to ask if he was just trying to get her
attention for something more than he was
explaining but she bit her tongue. Kelechi
asked about her boyfriend and Yejide lied
about him. She said he had come visiting not
too long before he came even though Kelechi
could sense that she was not saying the
truth. A few minutes later, there was a knock
on the door and Yejide was about to go check
who it was when Kelechi offered to help. He
went over and opened to the door to find an
older man asking for Yejide and Dupe. When
the man told Kelechi who he was, he was
about going over to tell Yejide that her
landlord was asking for her when he saw her
coming out with her crutches assisting her.

On getting outside, Kelechi excused them by
waiting for Yejide inside.
“Good afternoon sir” Yejide greeted as she
saw her landlord.
“Yejide good afternoon, Na wetin do your
“Oga na motor jam me oo”
“Ayah pele. Ehen you no say I come ask una
for the remaining money. Ah don give una
two weeks.”
“Oga, I know. These past weeks have been
very rough for us and this accident con join
am. You no say we dey always pay our house
rent on time.”
“Eh but ẹ mo-kpe mo ni ẹbi (you know I have
a family). If I allow all my tenants to pay me
any time they like, then that will be bad for
me now. You should understand.”

They spoke some more in their native
language (Yoruba) before he agreed and gave
Yejide and Dupe one more week to pay the
complete house rent. As sad as Yejide was,
she went back inside acting like everything
was alright. On the other hand, Kelechi had
been able to hear a part of their conversation
except for the time they switched into their
native language. He was able to understand
that Yejide and Dupe had been late for
payment so he asked even though he knew
what was up. Again, Yejide lied and gave
Kelechi another reason for her landlord
paying them a visit.
