victor was the youngest and only son among three sisters . His father had died when he was only an infant. However, victor never felt the deprivation of a father as he grew older.

Meet my honorable and magnanimous sponsors. Love them to the moon and back!!

Uncle coker, his father's younger brother loved victor to bits. He would do anything to make his nephew happy. Uncle coker who was in his early forties was a successful telecommunication engineer. His elder brother, Andrew who was victor's father, was the one who sponsored his university education as their father had died a when they were still boys. Actually, Andrew had to forfeit his own education and put his life on hold so that his younger brother could continue schooling and improve.

There was no other option, their father was late and they had no one to fund them schooling. Coker was more brilliant. He had tried several times to teach his elder brother mathematics but andrew hated it.

One night, when the two boys were studying by a kerosene lamp, Andrew said to his younger brother. " Now that our father is late, it would be quite impossible for both of us to continue with our education, as soon as I complete my high school education this year, I would have to seek for a vocation in order to support you and mom".

"Since you are better than me in school, why don't you go ahead and acquire all that education and make us proud some day while I stick to tailoring". Andrew said .

Their mother who was already heartbroken by the death of her husband burst into tears when her two sons told her about their decision, Andrew tried to convince her that it was the only way.

When coker completed his university degree, he was able to secure a lucrative job almost immediately since he had graduated with high honors. Five years later, Andrew died in his sleep. His wife, mary had just given birth to a son, victor.

Coker was completely shattered by the loss of his angel brother and he wept for days.

Coker never waived his late elder brother's family. Even though his sister in-law was doing quite well in her business, Coker insisted on championing his nephew and nieces education and providing for their every need. He vowed that no matter what it takes, he would send victor abroad for his university education

Victor was now a twelve years old kid and had his uncle completely wrapped round his finger. To coker, No favor was too much to do for victor. He spoilt him silly with expensive gifts .

To make things more beautiful, victor took after his uncle's brains. He was very good in mathematics and sciences. He told his uncle that he would love to be an engineer too one day and his uncle was very pleased to hear this.

On his 12th birthday, uncle coker bought him an expensive smartphone. Victor's mom was not very comfortable with this, she complained that victor would be distracted from his studies. "Why not get him a phone when he was done with high school Education", Victor's mother protested. But uncle coker didn't listen to her, Infact he promised that he would buy victor a car when he was done with his high school education. Victor's mom became speechless.

On Christmas day , Coker surprised victor by gifting him a really endearing spiderman's suit . A week earlier, coker had visited the family, he overheard victor and his sister dicussing about the movie " spiderman, no way home". Victor told his sisters that spiderman's suit was really cool and that he had always admired it for a long time

Victor was so full of joy when he got his Christmas present. The suit looked so real just like the one in the movie. No doubt it must have cost alot. He thanked his uncle over and over again. He really felt proud when he walked round the neighborhood with his suit. Other kids would always follow him by the flanks like a king and thanks to uncle coker, he made alot of new friends.

The next day, victor began to get intoxicated by the sheer grandeur of his spiderman suit. He would exagerrate in the presence of other boys that the suit was no ordinary toy or costume. "My uncle bought it for thousands of dollars", victor said. " As a matter of fact, it possess the extraordinary powers that would enable me to fly across buildings", Victor continued to brag.

On seeing the look of utter bewilderment and respect in the eyes of his peers, victor felt like a god and at that moment and he lost his mind. He wanted to impress them further .

He ran into a nearby three-storey building and hurriedly reached the first floor , then he mounted the balcony. As he looked downward and saw the other boys watching him with their heads tilted upwards, awe written all over their faces and mouths agape. Victor felt like the real spider man in his magnificent suit. With his eyes close and arms outstretched, victor jumped over the balcony and tried to fly on to the next building.

Victor's mother was sitting by the hospital bed . Her eyes were very red and swollen as she kept crying throughout the night. The doctor said that victor had broken core bones in his arms, jaw, neck and rib. He would be going in for surgery any moment from now .

Uncle coker was in a meeting when his phone rang. The news came as severe blow to him. He felt as if a truck had hit him in the face. He immediately jumped up from his seat as if he had been stung by queen bee and rushed to the hospital where victor was admitted.

As soon as victor's mom saw coker, shr attacked him like a wild animal, She held him by the tie, and continue to hit him on the face with her other hand. She was about to reach for his eyes with her artificial nails but was stopped abruptly by the three nurses who held her down.

She screamed at her husband's brother and accused him of killing her husband. She called him an accultic man who also wanted to sacrifice his nephew in order to gain more wealth. Coker was dumb stricken and stood transfixed with wide eyes and mouth agape as his sister inlaw continued to spit out vile words that tore his heartstrings. He made one last desperate but slow movement to see victor's face again, but Victor's mom screamed so loud that her voice reverberated through out the the hospital. "Dont allow this evil man come close to my son"! , she cried . The nurses pleaded with coker to leave the ward so that Victor's mom could calm down.

With a heart heavy with agony, coker fell on his knees and burst into uncontrollable tears which made him choke on his sobs........... He was still crying when his heart stopped beating.

Its really a tragic ending... U know kids, especially boys. They always fantasize about being their favorite superhero. I am sure you also fought "Chinese" and "commando" with the other boys when you were much younger 😂

Brilliantly wrote dear, important lesson to remember is no matter where life takes you, no matter how much life blesses you, always remember your roots and where you came from. Victor should have known this

I read everything from start to finish and it was almost impossible to think it is not a novel I was reading. Well, I have some pieces of advice. Please, write a book and I will be your marketer.

The story is just a picture of reality. Where do we place this kind of writing? Fiction right?
