THE UNFORGETTABLE ENCOUNTER
Nine months later…
George flew into the country. Jeremiah had called him the previous week to inform him that the construction of the buildings had been concluded.
When George saw the buildings and how well furnished they had been, he was totally impressed and awed. They were the exact representation of what was on the plan.
When they got to the final building which was a duplex in one of the choicest places of the city, George introduced Jeremiah to his lawyer who had joined them few minutes after they arrived. After exchanging pleasantries, the lawyer brought out some documents from his suitcase and handed them over to Jeremiah to sign. The document was captioned ‘Transfer of Ownership’. Immediately, Jeremiah looked at George and was stunned.
George smiled and said, “Welcome to your new abode.”
The Unforgettable Encounter
Jeremiah could not utter a word; he hugged George after he had signed the papers.
“My brother stop this na. You are embarrassing me. I have not finished talking. I would like us to make one quick stop before you go home.” George said.
Also, the lawyer gave George the papers to sign.
Then, the lawyer handed over the signed document to Jeremiah and congratulated him.
Before they left the premises, George made a call telling the receiver to call for a brief meeting within the next twenty minutes at the conference room.
“I have a flight scheduled to take off in three hours’ time, so I would like to make this brief.” George said and he told the executives to have their seats while Jeremiah stood beside him.
“I would like to introduce your new Managing Director to all of you.” George said and whispered into Jeremiah’s ear, “Brother, I would have loved to stay longer than this but I have a flight to catch. We will talk on the phone.”
Sometimes, you just have to sit back, ignore the things you don’t have and thank God for what you have.
