Two guys met after a very long time. They were so elated to see again after many years they left high school.
Jack is now a medical doctor and Harry, now an Engineer.
Things have changed, they are now big boys. They discussed on sundry issues. In the midst of their discussion they remembered a guy in their class who was so very brilliant.
How about Joe? Harry asked Jack.
Oh, Joe, the bookworm? Jack responded.
I thought that guy would have been a very great man by now considering the fact he always came first in Class.
What about him? Harry seemed to be interested about Joe’s affairs.
Not much, Harry. His story is quite uninspiring.
Uninspiring? Harry leaned towards Jack.
That guy apart from being brilliant, he didn’t allow us to rest about religious stuff. You meant he didn’t go to Uni? Asked Harry.
No, Harry. From what I heard about him from Josephine, the guy is doing houseboy somewhere in Area G.
Wow, so pathetic. Harry sighed.
Well, such his life, I used to envy him then, now I’m a Doctor, you are an Engineer and he, well, sorry to say, a nobody.
They discussed few other things and parted hoping they would meet some other time soon.
Somehow, Harry and Jackson lost contact. 5 years after their first meeting they met again, this time around in Cinema. They were happy to connect again.
As usual, they have so many things to catch up with. Life. Work. Family.
Jack, do you hear about Joe again? Harry asked.
You mean you didn’t hear?
Heard what? Harry looked a bit worry.
Joe is in Prison! Jack blew it out.
Prison? What did he do? Harry asked.
He was trying to rape his Oga’s wife.
You mean that guy who was holier than thou could do such? Harry looked confused.
Don’t mind them. Nobody is a saint. The difference between us and those born against is that we do our own openly and they did theirs secretly. We are all sinners.
How come things keep turning around negatively for this guy. I thought he would be the most successful among us. Harry was thinking out loud.
Well, let’s forget about his case. Jack told Harry.
Please, this time around, we must not lose contact again. In fact, I will like to visit you in your house, let me have your address. Said Harry.
2 years after,
“Hi, Jack, good to hear your voice. It’s been a while.” was the voice of Harry at the other side of the phone.
“Did you hear?”
What is it?
You mean you haven’t heard?
Jack, seriously, I have been indoor since morning. I haven’t gone out or put on the TV
OK, turn on your TV now.
OK, I will. Replied Harry.
Unbelievable! Unbelievable! Unbelievable!
Jack, this is Unbelievable! Harry blurted.
I couldn’t believe it myself, it was Josephine that called me an hour ago to turn on my TV.
The news is everywhere. Jack added.
Joe, now a Prime Minister!
How did it happen, Jack?
I heard the guy left the prison yesterday and became a Prime minister today.
It’s simply unbelievable! Jack responded.
You see, Jack let us raise money to buy a page in the Prime Times tomorrow to congratulate him, who knows if we can start getting contracts.
That was how God turned the story of Joseph Jacobs around overnight and those who had been gossiping about him started “gospeling” about him.
It doesn’t really matter where you are today, you will become all that God destined you to be!
If it has not Ended, it’s Not yet the END!
You will END well!
