It had been a very long and stressful day at the office and all Abike wanted to do was sleep. She rushed home from work and as usual, the Lagos traffic took the last strength she had in her.
She bought the regular traffic food, gala and coke and filled her tummy because she knew she would be too tired to cook when she got home.
Suddenly, dark clouds formed and she hoped she would get home before it started to pour. She got home just as the rain was starting and she quickly had her bath and got into bed.
Just as she was about to drift away into dreamland, she heard it. it felt like raindrops on her face and she thought she was already dreaming but she looked up and saw that she wasn’t.
Her day had gone from bad to worse because she knew that having a leaky roof would mean having to move things and find a way to wedge the rain which meant a pretty disturbed night. Could things get any worse?
