COURTEOUS BEHAVIOUR (CHIVALRY)
It was seriously rainy
You gotta know the rains of SouthWestern Nigeria sometimes
We stepped down from the cab
And going to another named locations.
She asked me where I was going
"I'm going to ABC" I replied
"I'm going to XYZ" She replied under the rain.
We sought for a shed and it was on a high land.
I stepped forward to climb the (inclined) floor
She followed me
At a certain point
She stretched her hand for a support
I looked at her face.
Instantly, I remembered the ANTI-CHIVALRY MESSAGE of our dear Aunty Chima.
I wanted to neglect her hand,
Preached it to her fervently and said;
"Young Lady, have you not read the message?"
But no time and the extrinsic environment wasn't conducive
My hand was excited by my good heart
I stretched it forward
And we climbed the floor together.
At the top where there was a shed
She said; "Thank you" with a beautiful smile on her face.
"You are welcome" I replied.
The rain didn't stop as we thought
I told her to let us go and looked for bus
She was afraid
But I gave her courage
After about 5 minutes
We stepped down under the rain
And followed the same path
She was shouting
I held her hand tight and motivating her till we reached the ground.
I showed her a bus going to her destination.
"Thank you", She said again under the rain.
The rest was a story
At a certain time, Women will always request the "Courteous behavior" (chivalry) from Men not because they are weak and Good Men like ALAO JAMIU OLADAYO will perpetually render it genuinely.
